Just another thing to cycle through like walk speed. Let us cycle through the emotes we've unlocked or better yet hold the button input to open a menu listing them and assign it to the node. Like the mockup image below:
Limit the emotes that would actually apply to the node. Obviously a mount or non-combat pet can't perform a dance (Although I would love it if they could).
But we should be able to cycle through their various idles.
This is a feature that would take houseguests to the next level. I can have my cook actually use those cool new emotes you sold me a few weeks ago. Make them look like they are salting the meat or threatening another houseguest with a rolling pin.
Or have a guest hammer at a wall (Fallout 4 Sanctuary Vibes all over again).
Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.
