This mod adds new AI Packages to Serana so that she is not as aggressive when you are in sneak mode. She will no longer charge ahead and attack as soon as you are detected and will instead wait until your enemy's are in a close radius before engaging in combat.

I have made a point not to edit her appearance, so you can choose any body or face mod you like along with this mod.

I have also reduced the overall frequency of her Detection Dialogue by 75% and removed most of her comments when you are sneaking. So Serana won't shout out "Who's there!" or "Where'd you come from!" every time you are detected.

I have created two versions of this mod for your own personal preference.


Version 1: Only includes the sneak AI package edits.
This version keeps all of her existing spells intact.

Version 2: Adds sneak AI package edits, removes all her 'Raise Dead' and 'AOE' spells and adds new spells to her list (Heal Self, Bat Cloak, Ward, Icy Spear, and Thunderbolt). RECOMMENDED FOR STEALTH GAMEPLAY


* It is recommended to enable this mod
before you release Serana from her tomb, so that her leveling scripts are still active. This will ensure that her 'Raise Dead' spells are properly removed.

I have added an additional script to help remove her spells if you have already started the DG questline. If that doesn't work, you may need to use the console and manually remove them.

02011F35 ( DLC1RaiseZombieRightHand ) This is the most common one as it's a starting spell that's in her inventory.
000C969E ( RaiseZombieLeftHand )
000CAB64 ( ReanimateCorpseLeftHand )
000CAB66 ( RevenantLeftHand )

* For best results, use BOSS to sort load order.

(Who's there, Where'd you come from, Found you, I knew it, Show yourself, ect.)


Load Order:

The order is less important for the 'AI Only' version. Just make sure it runs after any mods like AFT or UFO.

For the 'No Raise Dead' version, run this as late in your load order as possible. Preferably after any other Dawnguard mods.


Compatibility:

- Compatible with UFO

- Compatible with AFT (Use AFT Patch File)
* Load 'Sneaky_Serana.esp' file after AFT.
* Select 'Combat' option (reccomended to use General or Magic).
* I did not edit the 'Follow Far' option. This will use AFT's AI package if selected.


- Compatible with Serana Dialogue Edit
* Load 'Sneaky_Serana.esp' before Serana Dialogue Edit file.
* Reduced detection dialogue will not work with this mod, only spells and AI packages.



Requirements:

- Dawnguard
- For v2 load file after all other Dawnguard mods.



Comments:

All of the features I have implemented have been done without editing her form ID directly, letting you chose any custom appearance mod you like. Enjoy!



Installation:

1. Use NMM installer.
2. Install manually by adding Sneaky_Serana.esp to Skyrim/Data folder.
Add DLC1SeranaLevelingScript.pex & DLC1RemoveSeranaZombies.pex to Data/Scripts folder.



Uninstall:

1. Deactivate with NMM.
2. Remove Sneaky_Serana from Skyrim/Data folder.
Remove DLC1SeranaLevelingScript.pex & DLC1RemoveSeranaZombies.pex from Data/Scripts folder.
