Smooth Combat – Non Combat Animation System is a new mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. In vanilla Skyrim whenever you pull out a weapon, the character gets locked in a fight stance idle animation. This mod separates the idle animation from combat and non-combat, whenever a weapon is unsheathed.
Furthermore, when an enemy is detected and enters battle, depending on the player’s weapon, an idle animation is displayed according to that situation.
Lastly, when the enemy is no longer a threat, and becomes a non-combat situation, the character will switch back to the non-combat idle animation.
Below you can watch some videos showcasing the Smooth Combat mod.
