Discussion thread:
Realistic Boat Bobbing by Gandaganza
Wiki Link
 

Ever wondered why boats don't bob while in water? Bethesda made a great job adding idle animations to boats but unfortunately never added them to the game due to clipping issues. I fixed it :D Now you can enjoy the gentle bobbing while not staring at the clipping objects!

 
Finally we can have bobbing boats without all the bloody clipping!
I could see this mod in STEP ::P:

Simply: wow! I wanted the bobbing boats really badly, but the clipping killed the immersion, but now... All hail the seasickness!

This looks wonderful!  Thank you for making this available.  In your FAQs it sounds like you might try to alter the animation to make it more subtle for the larger boats.  I would definitely like to see that happen and hope you can make it work.  If you do figure out how to alter the animation, then I'd love to see the long boats get a more subtle animation as well.  The way the current animation works causes it to have an effect opposite to what you would expect to see in real life.  The larger the size of the boat, the less it should be affected by waves, not more.  If you could find a way to make the animation differ based on the size of the boat, that would be perfect.  As is, the mod is still a great improvement to the game.

This is a great mod. I hope you find a way to tweak the physics for the big ships.

Is this mod good to go? The author keeps updating but doesn't explain what each update contains. Is a final version out yet?

Well, there is a changelog, you know... :p And I doubt there will ever be a final version, people can always find some more clipping to fix!

 

About the badge, no one has given me one yet xD

About the badge, I think you have to message z from your nexus account to prove who you say you are.
