Adding Animations to the HUD/Mat

Adding Animations to Combo HUD/Mat

1) Get Organized
a) Create a folder in your inventory for your upgrade materials

EXAMPLE: To add a couple animation named Hug 5 which has a male animation named ani_Hug 5_m1 and a female animation ani_Hug 5_f1, add the following to the .MENUITEMS.custom notecard:

POSE Hug 5 | ani_Hug 5_m1 | ani_Hug 5_f1

f) In the .POSITIONS.custom, include

{PoseName} <0.0,0.0,1.5> <0.0,0.0,0.0> <0.0,0.0,1.5> <0.0,0.0,-180.0>
