Whats New

Version 1.3 - Inc All 1.3 BETAs:
Added Draw Weapon option (Draws Weapon when the Player draws theres), Added Shut Up option (She will cut her chatter to a minimum), Changed the Unconscious timer to 25 Seconds (When set to Essential she will stay down for 25 seconds when her health reaches 0 before getting back up. I may add a menu option for extra values depending on feedback. So if you want this then make sure you PM me or Leave a comment on the Nexus), Fixed the problem with the G36c Textures, Fixed the problem with her Chill Out function where she would wander of too far.

UPDATE: 15/08/09

Many people seem to be new to fallout 3 and have problems with flashing textures or big red ? around Kelsey.

Here's the Solution.

First install this little program: ArchiveInvalidation Invalidated.


Make sure you download the Automatic version and run it just the once. Doing this will save you much heartache in the long run with mods in general.

Now that's over onto your main problem.

Basically you have made the classic mistake of not copying the files over correctly and/or not clicking Overwrite to ALL when prompted.

So re-install Kelsey and make sure that this time you drag and drop Kelsey's DATA folder into your Fallout 3 folder (Don't copy it into Fallout 3s Data folder)

Now when you get a overwrite prompt click YES to ALL. Don't worry because all that's overwritten is file attributes or Kelsey's existing files if a previous install was done.

If you do not click overwrite then you will for sure get the problems of the Big Red ?.


If you load your game in Rivet then make sure you exit Rivet (Change Cell) then go back before hiring Kelsey (Very Important) or she will have issues with her gun and her heal menu.

But the best way is to just save outside before enabling Kelsey.

If you experience CTDs (Crash to Desktop) while using Kelsey then simply disable her Flashlight and A) Never Use it again or B)Just disable it before fast travel or moving areas (This is an issue with the game and not Kelsey)

You will NEED to clean your saved game for this Version if upgrading from ANY previous Versions including RCs and Releases and Instructions are included for cleaning your saved games..

If you have body/face/hand mismatch issues then try adding this to your Fallout.Ini file located in the same folder as your saved games and make sure you make a backup just in-case.

Add this in Fallout.ini under the line: STestFile1=Fallout3.esm


Use a Text editor like notepad to edit and save Fallout.ini and always make sure you back up Fallout.ini before editing.

Please make sure you Install ALL of Kelsey's Main Folder as some of the Meshes and Textures have been updated to there latest versions.

As with all mods. Backup your saves before activating just in-case theres some major Plot/Game busting bug there. I doubt it but you never know. You have been warned! LoL.


IMPORTANT: You first need to Unzip Kelsey Companion V1_3.zip and inside will be another Zip file called: Kelsey Basics V1_3(FOMM Compat).zip, This is the one you need to load into FOMM.

Load FOMM. Select Package Manager on the Right Hand Side. Select ADD. Now Navigate to where you downloaded the mod and load Kelsey Basics V1_3(FOMM Compat).zip into FOMM. Wait a Few seconds and you should see the Mod Appear in FOMMs list. Now select it and Activate it. Done.

Get FOMM here:

UPDATE: Please do not re-upload or translate any BETA version unless its for personal use. I am sorry but I don't want BETA (Unfinished) version being re-uploaded to the nexus. You are of course still permitted to do translation of the RELEASE .ESP only, All the other files like Textures/Meshes and Sounds will have to be downloaded from this page. Please make sure that you contact me first before upping a Translation. Thanks.

You are NOT allowed to Alter/Translate and Re-upload Kelsey without first contacting me. I in 99% of cases allow Translations. I am sorry about this change but lately a few people have decided to re-upload Kelsey or change her and Re-upload her in another form without my consent.

If you are patient I soon will be releasing a Companion Construction Kit.

Please do not upload this Archive or any of its components to any other website! I only give permission for this archive and its contents to be uploaded to Fallout 3 Nexus ( http://www.fallout3nexus.com ).

Thanks for Trying Kelsey and I hope you Enjoy her like I do.
