This mod adds a slew of new weapon idle animations, all of which are fully functional (including walk/run/turn). You can replace the vanilla with a different style. Just give it a shot and I hope you enjoy it.

Because male and female skeletons differ, male hands are slightly longer than female hands in the default game set, which is why vanilla bow draw idle female hand cannot touch arrow chord, twisting the hand position in bow animation is the best solution for female can touch arrow chord when using bow….

Pretty Combat Animations

I twisted the hand position for female characters so that they could properly touch the bowstring. Unfortunately, the xpms or xpmse “extended sliders for ece” option will change the bow/hand size, which means the female character will no longer match my specific twist bow animations if you choose this option. Furthermore, my specific twist bow animations are only designed for vanilla bow weapons; some custom bow sizes differ and may not match.

Once you install Pretty Combat Animations, if you see “2hm equip” “bow drawlight” “bow drawheavy” “bow drawn” and “bow release” (bow is included with sneak) under [animations] and [animations>female] both folders, all under [animations>female] are specifically twist for female character, don’t replace each other, and FNIS “Gender Specific Animation” generate is essential if you use female character.

Known Issue

The vanilla 1hm draw(equip) animation is 43 frames; if any custom 1hm draw animation frames exceed this value and you repeatedly press the “R” key to try to draw or withdraw your weapon, you may encounter stuck issues. Unfortunately, my Pca 1-handed sword back sheathing style has more than 43 frames and I can’t reduce it to 43 frames, so if you use my 1hm back sheathing style, please wait for the draw(equip) animation to finish before withdrawing (unequip) the weapon again.


you can found the animation file in path:

just remove it,now the character will return vanilla idle with original game set.
