Suggestions for new animations in NWN
« on: March 01, 2024, 05:26:56 PM »
Recently I've been releasing several examples of new animations for NWN, and sharing them with the NWN Dev Discord as well as the POTM Dev team.

I'm taking suggestions on what to look for and import into the game for emotes, RP and NPC animations. I've already gotten a lot of good suggestions on Discord, and I'll be working on some new dance animations tonight.

Also, please note that despite how fast I can make a video to showcase them, integrating animations like these into a PW like POTM will likely take time and effort. I'm just releasing animations to the player base, so please be patient and have realistic expectations on how soon you'll see new animation in game.

That being said, what new animations would you like to see in Neverwinter Nights?

Need that kneel on one knee for when Strahd walks past, or when hiding in a bush.

Both hands on hips idle.

One hand on hips, arm dangling idle.

Face in hands idle - for crying or disappointment.

Slav squat emote as a semi-serious suggestion.

Reading or showing a paper. We have it from vanilla but it just won't last even if you try to glitch it to stick.

Hand through one's own throat, as a threat of killing or signal for the executioner.

Lie down on your back, both hands beneath the head.

Waving both hands in denial.

Shaking head.

Take aim with crossbow/musket.

Dueling instance.

T posing for the Garda's search.

Leaning on the wall with a hand or two behind the back.

Clapping hands. Applause.

Throwing something.

As someone who has saluted a ton IG there's absolutely a salute.

As for my personal preferences I want an animation for hand on hilt. So I can threaten to draw my weapon.

An olden days NWN trick is if you do the animation and then move an item in your inventory you remain in the animation until you move.  Could be fixed in EE though, not sure.

A swimming/treading water animation, so we're not just walking on the bottom of Raduta's underwater section.
Or the lake.
Currently:
Livu Olmstead - First Watcher of Helm
Emmanuelle Skyshard - Ezran escapee from Hazlan

Also:
Renee le Serrurier - scholar and adventurer
