Hey Nargil, Thank you alot for this guide

Im having a problem with mounted creatures, maybe you can help me.

I can create custom mounted monster ( in this case i used a satyr as raider with a lion from Atlantis), why not :p,  i follow your guide step by step, as ingame they play fine as moviment and attacking animation.

The problem is, when they die, the satyr ( the raider) have death animation BUT the lion just stand still ( freezes).

I do remenber having this problem with horse before.

You have to enable custom death animation of the creature for it to work. it's located here:



Set it to 1, then in the creature animation table insert the death mounted animation in the corresponting field. That's it.

I'm not sure if skeleton emitter bones are required for animation. Just try without them and see how it goes.
You plan to use satyr boar rider as base? If so, have in mind that with boarrider the satyr is named "_RIDER" in animations.

Check the satyr bone names in the mesh, they must be the same as in the boarrider animation.
