Skyrim: Animated Prostitution v1.3
If you’re wondering why I specifically state “v1.3″ in the title, that’s because this is both a popular, and UNFINISHED mod. Of course while some of the mods i’ve reviewed are also incomplete and are still receiving updates, they are at the least fully usable without any issues. This mod however, is in it’s early stages. Very early. This, is Animated Prostitution. Demonstration after the jump.
Update Sunday, July 8, 2012: Fixed broken images. Word of advice, never use PostImage.
Now, when I said that this was a popular mod, I don’t just mean that in a “hey it has sex in it, thus it’s popular” kind of way. Animated Prostitution first started off as a Fallout 3 mod, a mod that included sex animation, the ability to prostitute yourself, as well as the addition of various companions. The creator is now bringing his craft to Skyrim, which is proving slightly more difficult than originally anticipated.
You see, custom animations in Skyrim are near impossible. Near impossible. Although you can replace some of the pre-existing animations (such as idles and walk cycles), actually getting new standalone animations into the game has proven difficult, namely because Bethesda decided to leave out that feature from the Creation Kit (hmmm, I wonder why). There have been some significant developments into overcoming this problem; one modder has managed to get new animations into the game through scripting, as shown in the Fore’s New Idles in Skyrim mod. JoshNZ however hasn’t taken this approach (namely because he started this mod before Fore’s came out), instead using a workaround that relies on duplicate races that have had their idle animations replaced with sex poses. For your delectation, I shall now try this out.
The following screenshots are completely unedited.
So I figured that since i’m now leader of the Companions, i’d abuse my power to get the sexy Dunmer Athis to amuse me.
You may also notice that suddenly Severan’s hair changed and his beard disappeared. This is an unfortunate side-effect to the aforementioned “duplicate races”; any character using custom hair will see their hair change during sex. That doesn’t explain, however, why his beard disappeared.
Also, I kid you not, as soon as we were done, Brenuin said “I don’t owe you any money do I?”
If you’re wondering how Lydia managed to keep her lovely locks, i’m not exactly sure why. It may have something to do with the Tera hair being set as being available to all except the beast races, but that’s a guess at best.
As I said before, this mod is in a very early stage. It suffers from some annoying glitches, and the animations can be quite awkward and distorted. It does show a huge amount of promise though, especially when you consider JoshNZ’s past work. Here’s hoping it won’t be long before the custom animation barrier is completely broken, allowing this project to progress forward with less problems. As it stands now though, I wouldn’t recommend downloading this mod unless you wish to help out JoshNZ by submitting bug reports and the like. If you’re hoping for something to give Skyrim that sexual twist it so sorely needs, this isn’t the mod you’re looking for. Not for now at least.
