It's already done this way in-game. The facial features actually need to be erased from the base texture because of that, but it's so easy that I didn't think that it's worth complaining about.

That can be fixed programmatically so you only need to make the animations work for the largest size. Scripts will be able to dampen or completely disable the animation for smaller sizes.

Maybe these anime facial expressions I did a while ago are helpful for LoS then:

They are in a vector format, so modifying them for different facial styles should be easy.

Neat, I really like these! I definitely want to integrate them once the new player model itself has been integrated properly.

Scaling should work in the idle animation now. I also added some new animation blending features while fixing the issue, so animations may behave a bit differently in-game than before. Some of the animations, especially the currently missing ones, may require their priorities to be tuned in scripts to behave as expected, but it should be relatively easy to do now.

Some missing animations that would be useful to remake: throwing grenades/boomerang, flinch (after taking damage), blocking with a shield, casting a spell, attacking with a bow/crossbow/revolver/musket/two-handed weapon (each requires a different animation), holding a crossbow/musket/two-handed weapon.

WIP file for new animations. Use it to overwrite the animations exported from anims1.blend

Good job on the animations! I finished integrating those of them that can be driven by the existing game logic. I also added a few placeholder animations to cover the most disturbing gaps that remained in the animation set. The animations can be found from actors/aer/anims1.blend, in case you or someone else would like to work on them some more.
