This is my second FFXIV skill effect mod published, I mentioned in my last modpack that Monk was coming next--sike :p I ended up benching that project for a few reasons; I spent a lot of time in TOP as a Machinist...
My approach for Machinist was a bit different than my approach for Samurai--but you can expect the same quality!
Since Machinist isn't burdened with positionals, isn't too constrained by visibility in general, and is typically further from the target--I used a bit more graphics in these skills.
I do not like a lot of the hops and base skill concepts for Machinist, so basically none of the weaponskills resemble their original counterparts. I did however do my best to keep to the theme or name of the actions.
All-in-all, this animation set focuses a little bit more on guns, bullets, and combat machines. I had a blast making it and I enjoy how it ended up!
Note: you might need to to toggle different jobs back and forth a couple times before the skeletal pap animations update.

In the video I also list the types of adjustments I made to each action, such as...
• Minimal FX: reduction in existing visual effects, to declutter the animation
• New Effects: new or altered visual effects for the action
• New Sound: new or altered audio effects for the action
• New Motion: different skeletal animation, some are swapped from other actions, and others were modified using 3D Modeling software.
• No Frames: has sound and visual but no skeletal movement (activates seamlessly with other actions)
Here is the list of actions included in the full version:
Heated Split Shot
Heated Slug Shot
Heated Clean Shot
