Because of the limitless work of prolific modders, is there something you may’t do in Skyrim? Not anymore, no. You possibly can have Half-Life’s gravity gloves. You possibly can create new voice traces. Now, finally, you can too pet the canine. Even the Dragonborn’s finest pal deserves a couple of good pats on the top between biting skeevers and combating vampires.
This canine petting downtime exercise is the work of modder JaySerpa. Approaching a pleasant canine and interacting with it whereas unarmed will end in some pets dependant on whether or not the pup in query is sitting, standing, or lounging about. Right here, look. It is precisely what it says on the tin. The Dragonborn pets canine now—easy and excellent.
“I am not an animator, these animations aren’t good,” says JaySerpa. “You should be going through the canine straight ahead for them to make sense more often than not, however hey, it is what now we have and I will gladly take it so I can pet my boy Meeko!” Identical, truthfully. Good or not, these canine petting animations mild up my little mind wires, internally screaming out “who’s a very good canine? sure, you’re!”
I do know that petting the canine is an entire meme and half now however this is the factor: I’ve most likely by no means performed and by no means will play a lot of the video games with canine petting in ’em. Nevertheless, I am solely ever about six months away from bolting a bunch of latest mods to Skyrim and setting off on a brand new journey, so I really feel fairly assured I will truly find yourself petting these canine sooner or later.
JaySerpa can also be apparently engaged on a bigger mod that can allow you to pet extra animals and produce other interactions with objects and NPCs. For now although, the essential bit deserved a standalone.
