I might be remembering correctly who explained this to me. It was a long time ago.

I was told that there is no separate animation for sitting. I think it was Luth who explained that the seated animation is pieced together by the client when a character is on items designated as "sittable". He said that the client has those items hardwired into it and when a character is on one of them the client "cuts" the standing animation and places it to appear as seated. At that time I was having a problem where my characters would appear naked in the game window when they were wearing custom clothes and were seated. Somwhere along the way this problem fixed itself. I assume one of the client updates corrected the issue.

I hope this helps you.
Sincerely,
Yukiko

I would tell you a UDP joke but you might not get it.

You're welcome.

*chuckles*

Although my first line should have been "I might not be remembering correctly...".
I guess that will teach me to proofread my posts before submitting them.

Yes Yukiko you're correct, sitting animation is generated by the client.

An ever-useful link is this: http://sorea.profitux.cz/patching/

Mind that:
"WARNING: Thanks to neizarr from Sphere forum I found that animation numbers above 1000 decimal (that's 0x3E8 hex) will not be displayed if your character is sitting! It does not matter if you patch those animations into verdata.mul, or directly in anim.mul, or if you even have no own animation at all and redirect it with body.def. It will not work. So you should not use this high animation numbers at all."

That's sadly true, I confirm it first-hand.
So, if you plan to give to your players custom animation for their PCs, be sure to use a slot with id < 1000.

Thanks Xeon for the extra info. I'll try to keep that in mind if I ever add more custom clothes (God forbid!!!).
