Help: Andrew Pose Player In-Game Animation List

Seriously, I'm not trying to spam or sound like a broken record. But I thought this was also an appropriate category to post because there has got to be someone in one of these modding and cc discussions who can help or knows what to do.

APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE for the re-post but I'm desperate.

Hey everyone. This is a copy and re-post from another discussion I started. I just really need some information. I wasn't sure if I had originally posted it in the correct categories under:

--The Sims 4 Modding & Custom Content > Gameplay Mods.
--The Sims 4 Modding & Custom Content > General Mods Discussion.

I'm looking for the animation codes for the most recent packs: Island Living and StrangerVille.

Currently the list that is available online for in-game animations on Andrew's page on Sim4Studio is up until the Jungle Adventure and Get Famous packs. The post was made 12/06/2015 but the update for Get Famous was done 11/14/2018.

Does anyone know where I can find the codes if someone else has made a new or updated list? If, not, can anyone give me info or teach me how to extract the animation codes myself? I honestly have no idea what to do in order to get it. And it sounds like I'm asking for a lot of information. I probably am. I've never created cc or modded before so I don't know what programs I need. I just want to get the animation list. Realm of Magic is coming out soon too so if someone can at least teach me how to retrieve it, then I'd be able to make an updated list for anyone else in my position desperately trying to get the animation codes.

I know I sound dumb, but if I haven't made myself clear, this is what I mean when I say, animation codes: a_idle_suspicious_shiftyEyes_x
Are they even called animation codes? Animation scripts?

I appreciate any information and help on this matter.

    Hmm I would like to know this too. I'll happily help you with trying to figure it out, in the meantime here is some info that might be helpful.

    Generally animations are .fbx exports of a slave rig(basically the original rig has ikhandles, splines, butt-load of contraints, set-driven-keys and what-not, so a slave rig is made to make it easier for the engine to read, which basically parent and scale constrained to the original rig.), which is imported into the engine. So in order to access this you either have to have the original rig, or be able to somehow export them out of your game or trace them in the content list, but seeing as sims work with .package etc. the only way I can think of to access this content is through Sims 4 Studio, or have a very smart programmer who can unzip .package files to reveal the original content. Either way it should be possible to access the rig, because I've seen people make custom "poses" for the gallery pictures taken of the sims they upload, so that's the first clue. Find the rig, find the animations!

    The original poster spammed several threads and finally got an answer here:
