Mood Magic - change your character's expression!

Recommended Posts

This may be a very important mod, so I'm giving this its own thread.

 

WARNING: This mod is currently a BETA version, numbered 0.1. There WILL be bugs and I am not responsible for any corrupted saves. Keep a backup of a save BEFORE installing this mod just in case.

We've just discovered the existence of a Mood mod over at the 3DM forums, found here.

Direct download can be found here. Click 本地下载[普通用户直接下载] (second link) at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, here is a mediafire link.

It contains 2 ESP's for 2 magic spells - a chinese version and an english version. The spell, when activated (it's a power), opens this menu:

Options from left to right:

Myself/NPC: Myself targets your character, NPC seems to target all NPC's near you. Hitting this button makes the selected character say a generic line like "What do you need?"

mood: Selects character's mood. The title picture on this thread displays mood 7.

head: Opens this menu:

This changes the direction the head faces. This ONLY works on NPC's, not on yourself.

 

mouth: Opens this menu:

This also only works on NPC's, but I have no clue what its purpose is.

 

move: Seems to teleport the targeted NPC's to somewhere near you, and freezes them in place... could be wrong on that. Seems to be very buggy, or I'm using it wrong.

OK: Confirm and keeps changes

Free: Cancel button

 

That's all I have right now. I'll try to update this as we get more information and have done more testing, as we've literally just found this. Any help is appreciated.

 

Why is this important? Because it's an easy way to change your character's expression, something we've been looking to do. Hopefully people can expand on this! :3

 

 

All credit for this mod goes to the Dragon Slayer Mod team over at 3DM. I take no credit in this whatsoever.

Okay, so I've been testing. It seems the head movement works, but ONLY on NPC's, not on yourself.

Same for the mouth menu... except I have no clue what that's actually supposed to do. If anyone can figure out its purpose, that'd be great.

Be careful with this.....

 

I just had to delete every save I made after installing this:

 

I tried using an arcane enchanter, and it simply froze my character for a few seconds, never opening the enchant menu. After that, I couldn't scroll my camera into first person view. I couldn't enter first person view using the mapped key either.

 

I deleted the .esp and the 2 scripts it installed, and tried again. No go. So I deleted the 5 or so saves made after installing it, loaded up the last save just prior to installing it, and everything is back to normal.

 

It's probably a conflict with either Dovahkiin's Relax, Pin-ups, or one of the many other animation mods I'm running, but I have no way of knowing which one. Just beware that it WILL corrupt saves if you encounter the same conflict I did.

@Doc,

 

Create a new quest to store misc dialogues you can call later. In that quest, record a new dialogue Topic Info of you saying the "Ahh" or "Oh" sound for thirty to sixty seconds (however long you want). It doesn't matter what the written text is in the Topic Info, or what the Topic itself is. Let the CK make the FUZ file, which should produce the mouth-open expression you want. Replace the audio portion with 0dB audio silence (or groaning, whimpering, whatever). Convert to XWM. Call that Topic Info with scripting when your idle animation is playing. The idle animation will appear to include facial animation with the NPC holding their mouth open for... whatever reason an NPC needs to have its mouth open.

@kholdy what outfit are you using in your screenshots?

 

http://www.mediafire.com/?79k99tku8q9oyaa

Should be that one I think. Use "help jacket" ingame to get it. It's been a while since I used this, so I could be wrong.

Also please post questions like that in the "What mod is this" thread, stickied at the top of the board, I do check there regularly as well. No need to bump this old thread =/

Missed this somehow. That's a good idea. I was planning on using the Ohhh sound, but hadn't got as far as FUZ files. Thanks for the detailed breakdown.

I've been screwing around with this off and on. Conclusions thus far:

 

"NPC" can't target you, predictably. You can, however, use the console to execute "player.placeleveledactoratme 7" to create a clone of yourself, dress them up, and control them as an NPC. Not really Mood Magic-specific, just thought it was neat.

 

"Mood" doesn't seem to always work on my Monli character. It also never seems to work when tfc is active.

 

I'm not entirely sure what "Mouth" is for. "Say" causes the targeted character to spit out a simple greeting. I thought the other controls might be to add a delay to how long before they say the greeting, but that doesn't seem to be the case; adding/stacking up delays just freezes the character in place until the menu is exited.

 

 

Further notes:

I was using the 1.5 patch before, and had FNIS, Pinup Poses, and Dovahkiins Relaxes installed along with this. There was no problems at all. I recently installed the 1.6 patch and PC Exclusive Animation Paths, and still haven't had anything go terribly wrong. So if you're having trouble, it's (probably) not due to one of these mods.

did you try the "epc" command? or "epc 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1"?

usually that works for me when i can't go back into 3rd person.

 

or use one of the mods that prevent you from going into 1st person (like MLA) and let them play through.
