How do I add animations?


Recommended Posts

I downloaded the deadra Sutra (http://www.loverslab.com/topic/8232-the-daedra-sutra-lovers-with-pk-animation-collection/) and I am having troble with creature animation, I tryed to add one of the spider deadra for exemple using a number that don't exist in the ini folder (like 2361) even if the game recognizes its existance (I saw it traying to load in the console), when I ask to change the animation (pressing Z) the two models just stay there doing nothing. 


I tryed even change the number and let the original in the new number and the other in the original, and the other worked well, but the original not. 


What I did wrong?

2361 ? it is no Spider daedra number !

Spieder deadra has only 2 numbers. If you want more you must change the LoversIdleAnimsPriority.esp and add more.


You can use number 236 and 4001   ( or add in the esp 4002  and up to 4100. 4101 is Spriggan )



The xLoversCreature.ini must look like this  (xLoversCreature.ini in data\ini Folder)


;===Spider Daedra====================================================
set xLoversCreatureQuest.CreatureSpiderDaedraposes to sv_Construct "236=100,4001=100"


The deadra Sutra animations: must be renamed to 4001

You must have 4 Off and 4 Def kf files and the ini


in data\meshes\creatures\SpiderDaedra\IdleAnims\ani2    you must have the Off  kf files. Names






In data\meshes\characters\_male\idleanims\ani2     you must have the Def kf files. Names







in data\ini you must have

It worked, but how do I know what is the second number for each creature, is it said in an ini file?


And how do I add a 4002 (for example) to the esp file? 


Do I need a program to open the esp? Or I can just add in the ini as I did for 4001?


I am asking it, because the Deadra Sutra includes many animation for the same number and don't give a clue of how install them.  And looking in the Creatures.ini that you said, I see many creatures only have one animation, and some have a somenumber=0 in the file, so this animation don't play, right?


Thanks for the help.

No only add 4002 in the ini does not work, because the 4002 is not in the esp ( some creatures have more free/unused numbers but the Spider Daedra have only 236 and 4001 


You need the Constuction Set started with OBSE (best CS extender)

see my yellow Link below.


But how to add a new Animation...do not know how I can explain this if you never used the Constuction Set?

CS, click Gameplay, click Idle Animations...

But then it gets complicated


But in "Idle Animations..." you can check if the numbers are in the esp. Expand the  tree, expand the creature name tree and "subfolders" and you can see the numbers.



in the xLoversCreature.ini you can see (guess) the numbers


All numbers in the LoversIdleAnimsPriority.esp

303-Tentacle no free number ( if you add a new number in the esp the next number should be 5001)  ! the human-human ani numbers 1 to 50 are in the esp, so you can create copies of the human-human Off kf files and put them in the meshe\creatures\zzzLoversTentacle\IdleAnims\ani2 Folder. Have not tried it, don't know if it works !





set xLoversCreatureQuest.CreatureBaliWogposes to sv_Construct "201=100,501=100,502=100"

set xLoversCreatureQuest.CreatureBearposes to sv_Construct "202=100,601=0"

set xLoversCreatureQuest.CreatureBoarposes to sv_Construct "203=100,701=0"


set xLoversCreatureQuest.CreatureClannFearposes to sv_Construct "204=100"




If you want a new bear Animation you can use/try 602 ( and hope the number is already in the esp . Not use, my esp is not original I added new bear numbers)


The clannfear have only 204 and 801 in the esp





Edit: Here is the guide for adding animations to the  LoversIdleAnimsPriority.esp

I hope that Antonio121989 won't mind me hijacking his thread, but I have a similar question : I'd like to deactivate animation support for a creature in LAPF + creatures. How can I do that ?


Let's say I want to remove rats, but keep everything else as is. Would it be enough to remove the line for rats from the xLoversCreature.ini file, or would I have to additionally meddle with the LoversIdleAnimsPriority.esp ? What exactly needs to be done ?


Any insight would be very helpful to me, and appreciated.
