    Sticky

    Hi everyone, I'll be updating this sticky topic periodically, so please check here for answers to common questions.
     
    For General Questions:
    Please see Ceri's FAQ for questions relating to Ceri's location, compatibility with other mods (including follower frameworks), configuration, installation, troubleshooting and debug modes.
     
    Ceri's Backstory Quest Installments and Friendship:  
    Please see the Spoiler Guide, available for download in the Optional Files area.
     
    Ceri's Next Update:  
    We're presently working on Ceri v1.8, which will include the next installment of her backstory quest, and an optional romance subplot that will lead to marriage.  Most of the underlying content has been written, and is in process of being voiced.
     
    Known Issues:  
    In addition to what I've listed on Ceri's main description page, recent versions of AFT (v1.5x) are causing trouble with Ceri's wardrobe, healing/curing and ability to lead the player to plot destinations during Ceri's backstory quest.  The cause is AFT forcing overrides/priority over Ceri's functions in this mod.  I've been in contact with Dheuster to find a suitable work-around. Dheuster mentioned that AFT v1.6 will include a wardrobe toggle.  Users of other follower frameworks, including UFO, EFF and Simple Multiple Followers are unaffected.

    elite403 has also reported some issues relating to "duping" of gear under EFF. This is something that applies to followers in the vanilla system generally, and not limited to Ceri. I'll be investigating whether this issue is truly something to do with EFF, or if Bethesda changed something under the hood with Skyrim's v1.8 patch without telling anyone. Not like this has happened before. *cough*

      Bethesda released the final version of 1.9 on the 23, after one or two redeployments... its supposed to go live on consoles next week. It is possible for any one of a number of things to be causing these new follower issues. I use the all of the unofficial patches and UFO. Pay attention to your version numbers on NMM. Silverlock vetted thru the last SKSE change in under 4 hours.. I was on.. maybe that's it. I'm not playing a game with Ceri ATM, but I haven't noticed any other unusual UFO behavior. I did have that no follow problem with Vilya in the mare my second run thru way back in February but fixed it by just uninstalling and re-installing the mod. Be patient. I've removed Diversified Dragons' and replaced it with ' Deadly Dragons' because of the patch. This one is proving to be tough on some of the mods out there. If it breaks your game just take it out and play without it till its fixed.


      Edit 4/11/13DHUUH. Sorry Mujuro... didn't mean to tack this onto your sticky......

      No my friend, Mujuro's right about AFT 1.5, Sadly it create a bunch of issue with Follower's AI, Some issues also show in my mods... So i had to remove the mod from my list and head somewhere else for Follower Overhault...

      @ Mujuro

      If you use UFO you WILL have issues. UFO has been an ugly mess like 4 updates ago... even before Dawnguard came out. AFT... doesn't work either now. That is why I simply use MultipleFollowers.esp (http://forums.bethsoft.com/topic/1345602-wiprel-multiple-followers/)

      This mod simply lets you have up to 11 followers at once and that's it. Simplicity in itself and compatible with ALL follower mods. I went through a nightmare with UFO and AFT and will never install them again. Yeah the extra dialogue options are cool but not worth the headache.

      What's wrong with UFO ? I've been using it faithfully for a long while and have never had an issue. I probably "use" it less than most though. Mostly I just run with Ceri (and b4 I found her, just ran with a mule). Very once in a while I'll run with 2. I'll also tack horses, and have never had an issue. But, mostly I just love quick relax, stop fighting, flee UFO gives me .. as well as the dialog.

      I have used UFO from day one and have never had a problem with it and my mods are maxed out as are my numbers of followers including Vilja.

      I removed Cerwiden because she was not my cup of tea or suited to my type of game but intend to reinstall some time down the road.

      What I find with UFO is that its buggy: it has unclean edits and even after cleaning them with BOSS it can cause some commands not to work. Especially with custom followers.

      I like the Extensible Follower Framework: it lets you command all of your followers at once, use a menu interface to give commands like the Fallout games(so it works even with custom followers), and lets you set a follower limit by menu anywhere from 1 to 100.

      I'm not trying to attack UFO...I loved it and used it for a long time, I'm just giving you my reasons for switching and hopefully it will help you if you have the same problems I had with it.

      Recent Common Questions v2.0

      Q: When's the update expected?
      A: Author is swamped at work. Last known info was that he hoped to start things off again End August 2013. However since it's September now, there has been no further updates as yet.

      Q: How do I start Ceri's quests? I'm already lvl <insert level here> and she still won't tell me what's up with those assassins?
      A: See sticky post up top, look for Spoiler Guide

      Q: Ceri keeps losing the armour I gave her / Ceri runs around naked / Ceri won't wear what I gave her
      A: See --> this post here - Naked Bug Fix <-- for wardrobe problems

      Q: Ceri stopped healing me!
      A: Might be due to a brawl bug. You have to check which brawl you did not "win", and go back to the one you "lost" to win it to make Ceri heal again.

      Q: I don't want Ceri to fight AT ALL, just heal!
      A: Sorry, she's an INTELLIGENT Companion. She will always fight to defend herself at the very least, and she will use the correct spells to fight, unlike vanilla mages.

      Yep - I have AFT and the wardrobe bug has been driving me crazy. I've lost several pieces of gear due to this, so sadly I'll be uninstalling Ceridwen until a fix/patch or a workaround has been found. The clothing duplication issue happens in my game as well, so it's not an issue with EFF. I don't have this problem with any other follower -- whether modded or vanilla -- because I have Odvar the Afflicted in my game and the clothing duplication bug does not occur with him, nor do I have any problems with Odvar or any other follower randomly changing their gear. This (at least, in my game) appears to be a Ceridwen-specific issue.

      I like Ceri and would love to use her (again) once the wardrobe and AI issues have been fixed. For now, I have to uninstall because I'm simply losing too many crafted/enchanted sets of armor (and my sanity! due to the wardrobe bug. I'll be tracking this and holding my breath!

      Download/install Follower Compatibility by Vamyan, found right here on the Nexus. I have this installed along with Cerwiden & have had no issues so far as of right now. She followed me without hesitation after our short conversation in the Sleeping Giant Inn & I'm using AFT. Sort your load order via BOSS & you should have no issues at all. I hope this helps those having issues with Cerwiden not following, etc. Peace.

      The Follower Compatibility mod by Vamyan does not fix everything.  Clothing and armor will still be deleted, and the naked bug fix does not bring it back - since dismissing her bakes the loss of the armor/clothing into the next save.  So never give her any armor or clothing you are not willing to risk being lost.

      Been enjoying her so far, but the general audio quality is very annoying. Hearing the mic turn on and general static before and after she speaks really really bugs me.

      Hey I know this has probably been asked more than there are bugs in vanilla skyrim but have you guys abandoned this mod? I just wish to know if this is still being worked on but this is still an amazing mod regardless.

      Yeah, sadly the AFT wardrobe bug makes her unusable. I'm going to delete her too. I love the voice and her powers but this random nakedness and missing armor just doesn't cut it. The only follower I've had that has had this much trouble with AFT.

      Abandoned mod. No one has heard from the author in years. Don't hold your breath for v1.8 or an SSE version.

      Edit: Per The Poetic One "Thank you. I feel bad that this didn't get to where we had hoped. I had voiced the whole next section of her quest, but we never got to get it to you guys. I'm just glad people enjoyed the parts we did get done."

    I can tell my opinion will be unpopular, but I really want it to be on here so someone who has never downloaded this before can see it.

    The good things here are good - the AI is great and is one of the more helpful followers I've had overall in combat, great for people like me who like to play on higher difficulties. She heals, buffs, and has good offensive spells too. If that's all there was to this mod, it would be great.

    However, when it came to the follower herself, I was pretty disappointed. To preface this, I don't need my mods to be lore-friendly but there comes a point where it's too much. She is a priestess of a made up god, from a made up place - which alone isn't enough to bother me. But now every couple minutes she says something about how she misses home, or something about coffee, or something about clam chowder. I've counted about 4-6 distinct lines that include clam chowder for some unknown reason. I suppose the author thought she needed to be "quirky". These are lines that can be said at any time while just running around, so you hear it pretty often. Every time she mentioned clam chowder after the first couple times it made me annoyed. The voice actress herself isn't too bad, but she isn't really great either, and certainly not good enough to carry a poor script.

    Overall I don't hate the mod, but I can't put up with it either. If you're looking for a customizable magic oriented combat follower and you don't care how they sound or what they say this is a good choice. If you're like me and you like you followers to at least be likable and if not that not too annoying, or you are seeking a lore friendly mod, then approach with caution and make sure to find a video that features her voice lines before downloading.


     
    If i remember right the clam chowder is part of her quest line.  Which is pretty hard to kick off.  Somewhere there is a guide to her.

    NOTICE:

    The creator hasn't logged in since 16 April, 2016, let alone made any changes on the mod since 2013.
    The mod is abandoned unfortunately :(

    If anyone knows how to get in contact with the creator of the mod outside of NM, let me know how. I've updated her to SSE for my own personal use, and would love to be able to release her into the public so this mod isn't completely dead in all aspects.

      You could ask nexus moderators if you can post SSE port of her, with promise you will take it down if original mod author comes back or vote against it. Since author has probably left modding community they should allow you to do so.

      Just to elaborate, she uses whatever body mod that the user has installed. Updating her looks would be done much differently than other follower mods which use a specific body mod.

    so ive run into a snag during the sad giants shield quest. so what happens is that when i enter inside to talk to mordaga the quest finishes without him talking. when i go up to him to talk to him he just repeats his lines about thanking me for sparing him. When i go outside ceri just thanks me for sparing his life. any idea what it could be?

    Greetings. Great mod, but there are two things I wanna report:

    - When I tell Ceri that I agree in taking Elric and Rackir with us, the journal entry tells that I decided not to take them
    - When I am going to face Theleb K'aarna in the antiques shop, he and the warriors become hostiles without beggining the conversation with me.

    This is probably a stupid question, but how do you summon her? She disappeared on me when I fast traveled and I can't get her back. There's a spell to summon her in my magic tab, of course, but it can't be used; I can click on it and it puts the little chevron next to it as though it's assigned but then actually trying to cast it does nothing, the game doesn't seem to register it. I'm sure I probably just missed something obvious, but I have that issue with the abilities that come with several mods: they're there, but can't be equipped or used apparently. What am I missing?

      When the spell is equipped just use the "Z" key, the one for dragon shouts.
