First about the animations...
We already have thought of bringing such stuff in, but our main objective is of course first to finish the mod. Extras later.
We don't have a scripter for theses anyway. MilesTeg is mostly absent and he has no constant internet access actually, so he can't do much anyway.
Secondly, the DF2Mod was there before the SOTE mod. Although SOTE was really low details and a SOTE mod makes much more sense here, JK is a follow up of DF, but SOTE is not.
The DFMOD team supports DF2MOD first if absolutely needed and only if there is any time or room left, also other mods.
But please let us finish our own mod first before requesting any help, ok?
