I'm sure most of you probably already know this, but if you park your horse directly on top of a corpse(animal or human) and then dismount and skin or loot the body, you will instantly recieve the skin/cash/horns, etc. without having to repeatedly endure the skinning animation. I find it to be a huge time-saver...
I hunt on foot. It'd take longer to make a kill, whistle my horse over, get on my horse, walk over the corpse, dismount my horse, then collect the loot as it would to just deal with a 6 second skinning animation.
I know I'm dreaming, but it'd be nice if there was an option in the menu to disable the skinning cut scenes. Similar to how you could turn off the long summoning intros in Final Fantasy. I love hunting in this game, but after a while the one-liners and forced cut scene get tiresome.
