In order to see the animations in Art of the Catch, you must follow these simple installation steps after subscribing.

Install Art of the Catch using Mod Manager

Please install Art of the Catch from Skyrim Nexus using the Nexus Mod Manager, Mod Organizer, or similar.

Download FNIS

FNIS is a utility that allows modders to integrate new animations into Skyrim. Please download it from the link below. Choose to download the latest version, preferably using the “Download with Manager” button. As of this writing, the latest version is FNIS Behavior V5_4_1 — ALWAYS necessary.

FNIS on Skyrim Nexus

Install FNIS

Install FNIS by selecting Download with Manager and install using a mod manager (recommended) such as Nexus Mod Manager or Mod Organizer.

For detailed installation instructions, follow all steps for your particular setup as documented in the FNIS description under “Installation (extended)“.

Run FNIS for Users

Run GenerateFNISforUsers.exe from the steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Data\tools directory after installing FNIS and click Update FNIS Behavior. You should see output that looks like the following.

(Mod Organizer users: Please see FNIS installation documentation for specific instructions on running GenerateFNISforUsers.exe with Mod Organizer, as the above method will not work in Mod Organizer’s folder separated system. You must run FNIS through Mod Organizer with Art of the Catch activated instead.)

Enjoy The Mod!

Congratulations! You have completed the animation set-up for Art of the Catch.

You can now run Skyrim and catch fish to your heart’s content.

Have fun!
