All Skyrim mods are now deprecated as a new one for the VR version of the game lets you pet dogs with realistic animations.
The PLANCK (Physical Animation and Character Kinetics) mod from NexusMods user FlyingParticle essentially makes your interactions with NPCs more believable. It does this by altering character animations so that any NPC’s ragdoll is physically present at all times. The good folks on Reddit are genuinely amused by how you can slap NPCs now, but there’s a much healthier — and frankly important — app for this particular mod: realistic dog petting.
As Cangar demonstrated on YouTube, you can now lean over and pet dogs in Skyrim VR, and their furry little heads actually move with the weight of your hand. Before, if you really wanted to pet a dog, you could move your hand around the general area of the dog’s head, but the dog would just sit there like, “what the… are you doing?” Now, with the PLANCK mod, they will react to your petting like affectionate little dogs.
As mentioned earlier, the mod also makes NPCs react appropriately to a slap, and it will also make them stand still if you grab them. But who has time for that when there are dogs to be realistically petted?
