Description



========================================================



Tired of all those old, beat up looking male followers in Skyrim? Wishing you had some nice
eyecandy to stare at while you are out on your adventures? Looking for that "Knight in
Shining Armor"?? Then look no further, this is the mod you have been looking for!






Detail




========================================================

This mod places a unique follower named Korvain, A Very Large Nord Beserker, into Jorrvaskr,
in Whiterun. He uses Heavy armor, 2h weapons, and has all the heavy armor and 2h sword perks.
I give you 2 choices for a 2h weapon (see pics section). When you tell him to dress better he
will equip one of them, if you want him to use the other sword, just take the equipped one
out of his inventory and he will auto-equip the other one. He is a very powerful 2h beserker,
so you may want to play on a higher difficulty with him in your group. He is hireable and
marriageable and should be compatible with multiple follower mods, such as UFO, Followers Can
Relax, etc.


Please let me know if you have any problems with installing or using this mod.


This Project is a continual work in progress, I will be adding more companions, I hope to
eventually make them standalone mods, and to combine all the followers into one mod at some
point. I also hope to possibly create some unique armors and textures in the future as my
skill with modding increases.







Future Compaions - works in progress
============================
A Battlemage -DONE!
Sword and Shield Warrior - DONE!
A 2h Beserker - DONE!
A Ranger - DONE!
An Assassin - DONE!
A Necromancer - DONE!
A Dualwielding Weaponmaster - will be released in the standalone version
A Spellsword - will be released in the standalone version

Location

History


History

============

v3.0 ... Updated Main Korvain file with new eye texture replacer from The Eyes Of Beauty, so
he will no longer be dependant on the Improved Eyes Of Skyrim mod (as it is no longer
available on the nexus).

V2.0 ... Added another alternative short haired version of Korvain, this time using a
hairstyle from Apachii's Hair mod.

v1.5 .... Added an Alternate version of Korvain, with short hair, the rest of him stayed the
same.
--Require the Oblivion hair pack by DragonAge 7

v1: ...initial release

Known Issues and Bugs


UFO ( And most like all multi follower mods -- thought I've only tested with UFO)

- Can't hire more than one follower at a time.

---This occurs because NPC Editor can't set currentfollowerfaction to -1 (As it
doesn't allow setting negative numbers)






Incompatibilities


No Known Incompatibilities

Frequently Asked Questions


1. What face-body-textures have I used in the screenshots?...

-------------------------------------------------------------

Face: Younger Faces Merged with Men By Geonox - (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/2488)

Face: HQ Beards - Vanilla texture replacers by Regn - (http://www.skyrim.nexusmods.com/
mods/21620)

Body: Better Males - Beautiful Nudes and Faces- Sundracon Body (http://
skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/2488

Face: Fine Face Textures by Urshi - http://www.skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/27815/

Body: Smooth Male Body - textures for Better Males - SOS Schlongs of Skyrim - http://
skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/26145

2. I have those face mods listed above but my characters still not look as
in your screenshots, why? ...


-------------------------------------------------------------

To make my characters and their hair look as good as possible I use an ENB mod by Anaphiel.

The Goddess ENB (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/23029)

3. Why do I have duplicates of the hair this mod uses in the
showracemenu?? ...


-------------------------------------------------------------

This mod was made with the NPC Editor, so the apachii mod makes a duplicate of the hair used
for this mod in the showracemenu.

4. The mod isn't working, I can't find follower in Jorrvaskr, how do I fix
this?...


-------------------------------------------------------------

- Make sure you installed the mod correctly - See Install instructions

- Make sure you checked Korvain.esp in the game launcher under data files.

- Make sure you don't have any other that might conflict with this one.

*For example another follower mod that places the follower at Jorrvaskr.

5. Why can't I activate your esp file in the Skyrim launcher, the Data files
option is greyed out?...


-------------------------------------------------------------

If you can't select files in the launcher go to - Documents\My Games\Skyrim

- Open SkyrimPrefs.ini

- In the text look for

[Launcher]

bEnableFileSelection=1 (if this is 0 change it to 1)

6. The follower is naked when I go to hire him at Jorrvaskr, how do I fix
this?


-------------------------------------------------------------

This is a problem with the NPC Editor, when a default outfit is not chosen. To fix it,

just hire him as usual, then ask to trade something, hand him anything, armor, weapon,
potion,

and he will auto dress, with the armor and weapons that I have placed in his inventory.

(had to do it this way cause for some unknown reason when I set a default outfit, when I
try

to hire him ingame, I cant talk to him at all, not sure why). I will be working on this
and

hope to have it fixed in the near future.



Or if you are using UFO you can tell him to dress better, or use the "you are naked"
dialogue

to get him to dress using the armor and weapons he has in his inventory.



7. Help, I can't find Improved Eyes Skyrim anywhere on Nexus ...

-------------------------------------------------------------

Improved Eyes Skyrim is no longer available on the Nexus. Rest assured version 3 of the
Korvain mod uses a new eye texture replacement mod, called The Eyes Of Beauty, and is no longer
dependent on Improved Eyes Skyrim.
