Self explanatory. Falmer and Tribal Falmer chests mesh replacer that adds insides of the chests and animates them when they are activated.

Why wasn't this a part of the original game? Very cool :)

Both meshes from this mod conflict with USKP (it also provides meshes for falmer chests).

Both meshes from this mod conflict with USKP (it also provides meshes for falmer chests).

How do they conflict?

What changes did USKP bring to the falmer chests?  It didn't animate them, as far as I can tell.

EDIT: Never-mind, I just checked the change log for version 1.2.7

Locked containers that are not animated will not open when picked, requiring a second activation to open them. In the vanilla game, the only 3 container base objects affected are TreasFalmerChestEMPTY, TreasFalmerChest, and TreasFalmerChestBoss. The two meshes used by these 3 objects also needed a dummy animation added on (falmercontainer.nif, falmercontainer02.nif). (Bug #9714)

Of course, I haven't seen the animated fix myself in game, but I assume that something else overwrote those files. Anything in STEP that comes to mind?

I don't know what the conflict is exactly, but the meshes from this mod overwrite the ones from USKP.

I don't think that USKP animates falmer chests, but it does provide meshes for them. I have no idea why though and, frankly, I'm not looking forward to dog through USKP changelog :D Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 4

I have the mod in my load order. I'll report any issues if and when I come across it in my play through. Based on what swift fox posted though, if it makes the "unlock bug" come back, I think that is a fair trade off for the animation personally. It did always seem weird to me that there was no animation.

I've listed the change log entry in my above post.  But I personally didn't see the chests animate while using USKP.  So I'm not sure if it was "fixed" or if that was even a bug.

The USKP just added a dummy animation (that did nothing) to the chest mesh. Because this mod adds a (real) animation to the chest, it also fixes the "no auto activate" bug, and so the conflict with the USKP is harmless.

The mod was renamed to Animated Clutter, and now includes (version 1.4)

- Falmer chest and tribal falmer chest opening/closing
- Doors in Windhelm Gray Quarters now animate when opening
- satchel, knapsack animates when opening/closing
- trapdoor to the basement in your home if you have Hearthfires is now animated when opening
- large ships, katariah have idle animation There is minor clipping with objects on ships, since they don’t move
- spider sack
- ship trap door
- riften sewer hole

And a note from the author:

The spider sack looks a bit different, because the inner part is now visible. Take a look at the screenshot. I suggest updating all the meshes that you want from this pack (1.4), since I forgot to update tangent space in the previous release.


I haven't tried them all yet, but it sounds cool - and there are a few animated GIFs on the mod page. I am not convinced about the ships, as another mod tried to do it before (one of the water mods) and it didn't look cool when the boat rocked, but all the stuff on the deck remained static... The other ones are worth trying I think.

I give this one a thumbs up, it's already been added to SR:LE. I do not use the ship portion.

I've been using this mod without issue for some time now. It really adds a lot. I never realized how many items were lacking animations. Also, since we're using Realistic Water Two, disable the ship portion and we should be good.

Sounds like a unanimous agreement to accept this one. Unless we think further testing of the new anims is required? Seconded?
