Get Down and Boogie (Version 2.0) increases the number of dance moves immediately available to a female player character. No more one Compliment, one Insult. Now you can have five dances from your compliments, and six Insults (which we can also turn into dances - just remember that people will try to punch you). Massive credit goes to Quantum, whose patience and willingness to look at the problem and try stuff out has made this work. This mod works in two ways, and there are versions for either way and for both at the same time. 1. It changes your compliments. Hitting the compliment button will produce one of five dance moves, randomly picked by the game, but selected from a pool created by the mod. You won’t be able to pick them from Image as Designed, they need to be written into the file. They can be easily changed with no unpacking/converting/sacrificing small animals/repacking. This also changes your insult into a set of six animations that the game will select from at random when you hit the insult button. Those insults are pelvic thrusts, the finger, throat cut, head shake, chest thrust and jerk off. THESE CAN ALSO BE CHANGED. You want that insult to be the Dollar Dandy? Tell me. Make a post, say what you want, or download the guide below on how to do it yourself. 2. It changes your unarmed crouch animation, and your unarmed crouch-walk animation, into dance animations. This doesn’t affect your ARMED crouch animations. If you got a weapon out, you don’t dance. If your weapons are stowed, you boogie. These animations can also be changed into something else - comments and suggestions are always welcome. That gives you up to seven dance animations without having to go to character customization. If we mod the insults too, we could get thirteen. Right now the insults are default and the rest of the mix is a little sexy, but it can be changed. Altering the default stand animation is also doable but it is vanilla right now. This version only works on female characters, but making a male version will (hopefully?) be pretty simple. If enough people say they want it, it’ll happen. There are three variants in the zip file: 1. The complete package, which changes your crouch anims AND your compliments. It contains all the animations of the other versions. 2. The modified crouch animations version, that leaves your compliments and taunts unchanged. 3. The Compliments version only, which leaves your unarmed crouch animations unchanged. I’d recommend the complete package (see the above picture), but everyone’s got their own thing. Installation instructions are in the zip file – this post is going to be long enough. Read the readme. Remember to back up any files that this mod replaces, should you want to uninstall later on. One more thing – random means Random, not Goes Through Each Equally. Sometimes you will get the same animation three times in a row, sometimes one animation won’t turn up in a set of ten. That’s just random. Sometimes I’ve thought there is some bias to it, but I haven’t yet nailed down something that I’m sure enough to talk seriously about. A NOTE ON SUGGESTIONS AND EDITS TO THE MOD We all want our perfect set of animations. Unfortunately there are some animations that can’t be added (yet). When this mod uses animations, it seems to be pulling them from the preload_anim.vpp_pc file. I’ve included in the zip file a preload_anim tested to be certain it contains all the animations I reference here. Check out the first few pages of this thread to see what happens with a smaller preload_anim file. Spoiler: There are T-Frame errors. Even with the big preload_anim file, there aren’t many traditional taunts and compliments in that file. There are: plyf_taunt_1.animx - the experience (the Michael Jackson) plyf_taunt_3.animx - pelvic thrusts plyf_taunt_14.animx - the scroob (under the arm wave) plyf_taunt_22.animx - the dollar dandy plyf_taunt_29.animx - of the river (macarena) plyf_taunt_41.animx - thumbs up plyf_taunt_42.animx - head nod plyf_taunt_44.animx – a startled thumbs up plyf_taunt_45.animx – woo shout plyf_taunt_47.animx - the finger plyf_taunt_49.animx - cut throat plyf_taunt_50.animx - head shake plyf_taunt_53.animx - chest threaten plyf_taunt_56.animx - jerk off The other compliments/taunts aren’t available (yet). But there are a ton of other animations, including various dances (CP means used in the Complete Package): life_gngf_dance_a.animx – see above image (CP) life_dancer.animx – dance and spin about (CP) life_f_dance_b.animx – fast side-step and sway, (CP) life_f_dance_c.animx - sexy turn (not Seven Veils, it’s a different animation) (CP) life_f_dance_d.animx – a low dance that’s nice but produces a clipping error if you have sex appeal of 50 or above life_gng_m_dance_a.animx - fast footwork, similar to the Boss’ dance at the end of SR4 (CP) life_gng_m_dance_b.animx - one hand swing, this one’s good if you’re into the shaky-weight life_gng_m_dance_c.animx – a kind of robot dance, without the robot-ness? life_gng_m_dance_d.animx – all about waving the arms As well as: Various hoe standing and talking animations, and one applying makeup Several walking animations (you can change your crouch-walk into something that actually moves, like a surrender walk, a sexy walk, or stagger-on-fire (fire not included)) Yoga (both sitting motionless and sitting waving your hands about) Streaking animations Pole dancing Lap dancing Mascot animations Probed Just bear in mind when you make suggestions that not everything is available. I can’t give you Kinzie’s dance from SR4’s ending. The .zip contains lists of (mostly) valid .animx files to check out if you want some inspiration. Whether you're a modder or you just want to see what's possible, it's worth a look. IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE ANIMATIONS YOURSELF There’s a .txt in the zip file with specific instructions, including the lines in plyf you need to edit in order to change the "default" compliments and insults. This post is already pretty long. Bug reports, comments, suggestions, requests for a particular version, post below. I’d particularly like to know what people want for insults. * Post has been edited with rebuilt version 2.0. The original version did not take into account the differences between preload_anim.vpp_pc files that seem to differ between builds of the game.
