Better Sit Idle V1.3

Because nobody in the universe sits like THAT.

  1. TitaniumVulpes
    Have you ever noticed how, when you sit in this game, your arms become uncomfortably glued to your sides? Have you ever sat like that in real life? It's awkward! Plus it makes your character's arms look absurdly short. A few years ago I fixed it for myself and then never bothered to actually post it anywhere, figuring it was just so niche of an annoyance that probably no one else has ever been bothered by it. But, hey, maybe someone has.

    All this mod does is patch the .frames files for both characters and armour, meaning 99.9% of modded races and armour that use standard humanoid .frames files are compatible out of the box. Frackin' Universe has several armour sets that have their own .frames files, and these are also patched. There is also an optional addon for Neki No-Sit.


    Specifically, this simple mod replaces the sit idle's front arm with the walk.2 frame, and the back arm with the run.3 frame, making it appear as though characters are resting their hands in their laps, as every normal biped with arms sitting down in a chair does. (If your character has no arms, they will not benefit from this.)If you happen to come across an armour that isn't appearing correctly, let me know; it's a simple 2-second fix to just copy the frame patches into the necessary folders to provide support and I'll update right away.

    Arguably a better sitting pose than what I gave the Neki originally :3

    This mod is wonderful! However, I wish that there was a version that DID effect the Neki, as now when I sit down, I have the same misaligned arms issue I had with clothing when I DIDN'T have Neki No-sit.

    It works on all other races and characters though! Even on edited vanilla sprites, so 5/5 stars!

      I've just uploaded an optional file to apply it to the Neki as well! No idea why I didn't think to do that before, but I've done it for you <3

    Not gonna lie, these seemingly small QOL mods are my favorite, good way to make game more visually appealing without straying too far from original, great job!
