NOW COMPLETELY STANDALONE

new!!! Plugins for Inconsequential NPCs and Interesting NPCs added(not needed to be compatible).
Children can be killed only by the player.

Come on dude...another children mod? Absolutely not!. What makes this one different?. Well, I know they are mods to make children followers, to make them wear armor, to make them fight, to make them killable, to be able to pickpocket, to loot them...But they are not compatible with each other, because they edit the same stuff. This mod unifies all those features.

I FORCED CHILD BODY MESHES TO PREVENT NUDITY. This can make custom body armors to have a seam on children, if you have installed armor replacers.

DESCRIPTION

  • Fully voiced children follower dialogues, with their original voices.
  • You can make any child your follower, even some adults. Only orphans will give you the follow me dialog, to be more lore-friendly. The others are activated with a provided spell.
  • They can now fight, no matter if they are followers or not
  • Every single child is pickpocketable, killable and lootable.(killable only on fighting version)
  • They can wear armor and weapons.
  • They will level with you.
  • Lore-friendly. They will still behave like children.
  • They will not report your crimes.
  • Plugins for popular NPC mods.
  • Modular easy installer.

TWO FLAVOURS!!:
  • Fighting version:
  • Full, all features enabled.
    In certain situations, they might flee because they are children...Babette will never flee.
    Sometimes they wont do what you have told them(with follower mods like AFT depends on that mod)
    They wont run to the other end of the map to aid someone.
  • Non fighting version:
  • they will flee and hide when combat starts.
    Not killable children and non fighting followers. The rest of the features are enabled.

MODULES (available on both fighting and non-fighting VERSIONS):
You can select wich options you want at install time(modular installation):
  • Resources file(core)- Spell to make anyone your follower. Orphans are already enabled(no requirements).
  • Voices for users with & without multiple follower mods(no requirements)
  • Hearthfires orphans followers(requires hearthfires)
  • Vanilla orphans followers(no requirements)
  • CLONE Followers-Aventus Aretino and Babette clones, inside Honorhall Orphanage (no requirements))
  • Interesting NPCs and Inconsequential NPCs plugins(only in fighting version)

PLEASE NOTE:
  • I grew sick of them being killed by Deadly Dragons so they are now protected, wich means they can die, but only by YOUR hand.
  • Quest npcs are also protected (can only be killed by you, the player)
  • Essential: babette
    Protected: svari, aventus aretino, fjotra, nelkir





INSTALLATION AND USAGE

INSTALLATION:
  • Install my mod with the easy Nexus Mod Manager installer, just like any other mod.
  • Read carefully the second step of the installer, to choose the correct voices file.
  • If using Interesting Npcs (made for version 3.05) and Inconsequential Npcs (made for 1.7b) plugins, place the plugins AFTER those mods.
  • The Interesting Npcs and Inconsequential Npcs plugins are not needed to be compatible, only makes children protected from those mod. So if those mode are updated, you can still use this plugin, if they dont remove a NPC who is a child.


IF UPGRADING FROM 2.2 to 2.2.1
Delete manually ONLY the inconsequential plugin and make a new save. Then install new version of my mod. Load previous save and play.

IF UPGRADING FROM 2.0 - Clean save of required mods:
The installer will prompt you to install a new additional plugin to provide standalone voices, at the second install step. You now have two options.
1)Keep MFVM - More Follower Voices Mod Plus Khajiit Marriage by Mysticentity. In this case you dont select my voices plugin.
2)Install standalone voices plugin of my mod, either vanilla of multiple followers mods version. In this case you NEED TO uninstall MFVM and make a CLEAN SAVE of MFVM mod. There is no need to clean save my mod, just update it.

IF UPGRADING FROM 1.6 - Clean save needed:
Dismiss all followers.
Save(save 1) and quit the game.
Uninstall the mod and MFVM - More Follower Voices Mod Plus Khajiit Marriage by Mysticentity (only if you want my standalone version of child voices)
Load save 1, wait 1 minute and save again (save 2). Then quit the game.
Install new version of my mod.
Load save 2.
Save again(save 3).
Done.
Im sorry for this inconvenience, but i changed a lot of things and a clean save from previous versions is required.

USAGE:
    Just talk to them and they will follow you.
  • Go to Honorhall Orphanage and take the spell tome from the table(look at the pictures for location).
  • For currently adopted kids to become followers, or any other NPC, just cast the provided spell once and that NPC will be enabled to be your follower. It might not work on some adults. Not needed on kids not adopted by you.





COMPATIBILITY

  • For the ones listed below, it is compatible. For the rest of mods: you tell me.
  • Tested fully working with Amazing follower tweaks. Will test on the others.(EFF, UFO...)If it does not work tell me, and place my mod files after the other follower mod).
  • Hearthfire multiple adoptions - Now with custom home support for kids and spouse--->-Can cause hearthfires orphans not to show the follow me dialog, can be solved easily casting the spell on them once.
  • Interesting NPCs and Inconsequential NPCs. Also, there is a plugin available to add their children to this mod´s features, but it is not needed.
  • It should be compatible with any other mod, except for those that edit child races or their dialogues. Obviously if it messes with the SAME children, its not compatible, at first sight.





BUGS, working on a fix
  • if a kid should have the dialog and it does not, cast the spell.
    • Aventus Aretino clone does not offer follow me dialog.
    • Aventus Aretino and Babette original NPCs wont offer follow me dialog when used the spell on them, or may ignore you.
    • Well-known stretching bug
  • To-do list

    -Make 3dnpc and interesting npc orphans to offer follow me dialog.
    -Test compatibility with TK Children and xvision
    -Make children quest-givers essential only until quest complete
    -Fix well-known stretching bug when a child uses adult furniture(limit size or furn)
    -Add a few more options for them.
    Please, do NOT ask for children porn, marriage or any other similar stuff. NEVER.
