Custom Idle Animation  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.7.3
by: Xerrok [More]
WARNING ABOUT VERSIONS 1.7 AND 1.7.1!
Since the indices of the emotes were changed by Zenimax, and the fact that this addon only stores the indices of emotes, idle sets from previous versions can't be migrated and therefore will be deleted!
I've changed it so, that the names of the emotes instead of the indices will be stored from now on, so that this case won't happen again.


With this addon you are able to replace the default idle animation with any in-game emotes.
You can use idle sets to totally customize your idle animation with all available emotes. Every emote can be given a minimum play time and a priority for more customization. Feel free to make idle sets for several "moods" of your characters.

The emotes will play almost immediately after your character's idle starts and the defined delay has passed. After that, the emotes will refresh every time when the defined minimum time has passed, or repeatedly during its minimum time, if loop is activated. The same emote can be executed more than once, which can result in a longer time a certain emote is being played.

With the chat command /cia or Escape->Settings->Addons->Custom Idle Animations you will get into the settings.
If you hover with the cursor over the single settings, a tooltip will pop up with helpful information.

You can assign keys to easily switch between the idle sets and a key to activate/deactivate the addon in the controls settings of ESO.


Known Bug:
  • When trying to sit on chairs, benches and such, the emotes will interrupt it. Deactivate the addon with the assigned key, so the character will keep sitting.
  • Having any UI window active and the game not in focus, results in getting messages, that the action couldn't be executed.

Amazing Add-on!!

Hello! I just Downloaded your addon earlier today, and I just have to sayÖ itís absolutely amazing! Iíve created city idle set, tavern idle set, and dungeon / adventuring idle set from all the emotes I never used and it truly makes my character have so much personality and feels more ďreal.Ē I canít even imagine how much effort and time away from the real world it must have taken, but just had to tell you how much I love this and appreciate it and your work! lol I donít think I can ever go back to a lackluster idle (or even to idle emotes I canít pick and choose from!)! Thanks so much!

(Heads up to anyone messing around with this- Iíve found setting the time on most idle emotes to 20 and being very choosy with the priority helps to not over or under-do it, adding the idle emote with a high priority will help! Also, when I added keybindings for the addon, the setting menu would pop-up whenever I left a house / area / had a load screen. Disabling keybindings for the addon fixed this! :))

But it's not 20 seconds in between each emote. It's 20 seconds of standing idle and then they all play immediately one right after the other. Is this a bug or is this just how the addon is supposed to work? Because I want there to be some delay time in between each emote too, not just initially after being idle.
I'm sorry you're having trouble setting up your idle sets. Indeed I've realized that I wrote a wrong description for the delay. The delay is only used initially, after that the minimum time of the emote that is currently played is being used. I've added a feature with the new update, in which you can set an emote to loop during its minimum time or not. By the way, you can also add the idle emotes (/idle, /idle2, /idle3, ...) into your idle sets.
Thanks for replying, MBW91. I updated the addon in Minion. Thanks also for the update and adding the loop option. When you have time, could you add in a 'delay between emotes' slider so that all the emotes we've selected aren't playing back to back?

Oh, would you be able to add in Momentos at some point too?

Chiefly, /threaten and /taunt don't appear to be listed under any of the subcategories. I checked like 6 times going over every entry and I don't see them anywhere. Would be really great to get those added back in to the addon.


Also, while the categories are nice instead of a whole list, is there any chance of a final category being added (or an option to switch) that shows a single list of all emotes alphabetically? It can be SO hard to find a specific emote if its not immediately obvious what category it could be in?

Totally understand if this isn't a priority/can't be done, but figured I could mention it just in case.
I'm sorry you're experiencing troubles with finding emotes. A sort and/or a search functionality is definitely on my to-do list, and will be done as soon as I can spare time to implement it.
I didn't see any problems with missing emotes though. All emotes are loaded on startup from ESO directly and are not saved locally.

Thanks! I just pushed an update, that adds the loop feature to emotes. If you turn them off (is off by default), then the emote won't play over and over agin during its minimum time. Also you can add the idle emotes (/idle, /idle2, /idle3, ...) to your idle sets.

The problem with this is, that the character will automatically sheath their weapons, when an emote is played. In the past that led to the misbehavior of never being able to stand around with unsheathed weapons.

After you acquired new emotes, they will automatically appear in the list after you reload the game.

Non stop emote

Hi, great addon. Is there any way to force the emotes play a bit less often? I just want my character to do an animation once in a while but the emote plays over and over again.

Sorry, I don't have an option for that now and also not really planned.
There is a way to manually copy the idle sets of 1 character to another though. Under the path
Code:
%userprofile%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\SavedVariables
, you will find the CustomIdleAnimation.lua file, which contains all saved data for this addon per character. You can open that file with any editor, and replace the values with other ones, from another character or by writing yourself. Make sure to have your game closed before doing that though, otherwise the game will overwrite your changes on logout or reload. It makes also sense to make a backup of the file, for the case you accidentally break it.

I'm sorry that you have problems with this addon. On my end the /cia command is working fine.
Please make sure that you have the latest versions of this addon and LibAddonMenu installed.

I don't have that problem on my end. It could be that something went wrong with the saved variables. Since they will be reset with the new versions (explanation on why is in the addon info), your bug should be resolved. If not, please let me know.

edit: sadly I'm not sure what can be done about this. If you just stop moving, the special idle animation for the Minstrel personality will play. But if you actually type in /idle it reverts to the game default animation. It seems that the personality's idle is somehow independent of the other existing idle animations.
Unfortunately I don't own this personality, therefore I can't test it myself. Could it be, that the personality is using another idle emote than /idle? There are also /idle2, /idle3, /idle4 and /idle5, if I remember correctly.

No, it doesn't.

My time nowadays is unfortunately very limited. But if you have a good explanation or guide on how to do it, please send it to me via private message.

I'm sorry everyone! I've made a mistake with the last version...
I'm also very sorry, that your saved idles are gone. This is because of a change on Zenimax' side and how I interpreted the incoming data. I've posted a warning and small explanation in the addon info page.

The described issue is fixed with the new version 1.7.1.

Creating a new blank set seems to "fix" this, though but still can't make any adjustments to the add-on.

I found this add-on like a year or so ago and have loved it ever since, so I hope you're able to address these issues. <3

I am having the same issue
