    Trying to narrow down this issue, I cannot take cover (when pressing "Q" or whatever key take cover is bond to) my character just kinda "resets" itself in a t-position pose for a split second and nothing happens. Taking cover is impossible. Unsure if this mod causes it but it's really annoying,

    @MeliodasSama I have the same issue, I got past it by blowing up the car over and over and skipping, However now i have encountered the same issue during teh prep fro the jewel store heist, taking the loud option and the SUV supposed to be filled with SWAT guys is empty, try to get in and instant crash. I would assume the 2 are related. Hope this helps State_of_Mind to find what's causing it.
