    I am not currently supporting Arissa. This does not mean that she is completely free of all issues or is compatible with every feature of every mod (no comparatively complex mod is), but it does mean that all known major bugs related to her behavior, her quests, her dialogue, and her follower capabilities have been resolved and she has reached a point where I am comfortable stepping away for the time being.

    I am working on Frostfall, Last Seed, Campfire, and Art of the Catch and probably will be exclusively working on those until the end of this year (2015).

    The offer is open to fix known bugs yourself and upload a fix, or, send me the fix and I will review it and integrate it into the mod and push it as a new update. I simply don't have the time right now to continue to support the mod now that I'm working on my core mods again.

    Thank you for your understanding and your support of Arissa since her debut; we couldn't have taken her as far as she's come without your feedback and suggestions.

    Reminder: I have done a video on YouTube on how to convert her to SE

    Its quite involved, you need to convert ESM to ESP and back

      Great guide, recommended for people who are kinda new to this stuff. Thank you for your effort.
      It also reminded me that i haven't watched a Sean Connery movie in a while (ment as a compliment) :-)
      Cheers again!

      PS: For anyone who thinks the video is too long, set it on a faster speed like 1.25 :-P

    hey chesko will you be porting Arissa over to Skyrim SE anytime soon? I love this mod and would love to have it on the new Skyrim as well.

      +1 Though we probably can't hope for an update before SKSE debuts (mid-March, at earliest).

      Agreed. Please consider porting her over to Skyrim SE. She is the best follower mod that is on the Nexus. I miss not being able to use her.

      "It does not require SKSE. "

      Maybe not, but it does require "something" for it to work in SE. Game won't even load with the oldrim version. I'm guessing Chesko will port her eventually but probably is more interested in Last Seed at the moment. She's my favorite follower so I do miss her.

      Khumak, Arissa works fine in SSE. The reason why SSE didn't load is because you didn't unpack your BSA file. SSE uses a different BSA format than regular Skyrim.

      All you need to do is unpack the old BSA and run it through SSE's CK and pack it back up in SSE's BA2 file system and it should work just fine, or you could try it with loose files.

      Thanks. She's working for me now in SE.

      Apparently I repacked it wrong but it works with loose files. Will have to mess with repacking again sometime. My repacked version has a dark head with no hair and some parts of her clothing glowing purple. Loose files version looks normal.

      Also a note about the mesh files. The oldrim meshes are working fine for me. Oddly enough when I tried converting them with nif optimizer the game would no longer load so I'll just keep using the loose oldrim files in SE until someone who knows what they're doing converts it. I'm also using the oldrim Arissa CBBE customizer in SE and that is working as well (just have to remember to use the default hair or she will have a neck seam gap).

      Thank you for posting this! I tried porting her and did it wrong (in such a way that I can't delete or overwrite the wrongly packages port, only deactivate it). Seeing this post I tried just using loose files, and it works!

      Quite doubtful as back when paid mods first hit the steam workshop chesko pulled her instantly from the nexus, stripped out all of the external (High quality bodies, hairs, facial assets, armor, etc) and had her up on Steam day one. After the fallout he didn't really say much and eventually reuploaded her to steam... But she kinda got beaten by the ugly stick a few hundred times compared to her previous iterations which was a shame because not only was she one of the most fleshed out companions at the time (Sophia being the only other real contender back then) but was quite pleasant to have as a companion as she wasn't over the top nor too serious and quite easy on the eyes. (Thankfully I had her old revisions so doing a quick face lift wasn't too difficult)

      Then again... stranger things have happened >.>

      Sorry for the late reply, Chesko pulled her younger iterations for various reasons and I'm not willing to redistribute it out of respect for the authors. I can however point you to something you may or may not find even more appealing.

      NPC Visual Transfer Tool It pretty much automated everything I did by hand without any of the learning curve/hiccups I made during the process. It essential allows you to replace ANY NPC with another NPC's appearance. Turning Heimsker into a Mudcrab was quite awesome but you can pretty much take any of those stunning companions with zero depth and facelift them onto more compelling companions. I personally scrapped all the effort I made rewinding the clock on Arissa's appearance and used one of Nikita's (Arissa's Voice Actor) customized companions as a "Replacer"

      (As a side note: Getting her previously younger look to work with her current version takes a fair amount of effort due to directory and asset name changes... NOPE these hair files DO NOT LIKE EACH OTHER @[email protected])

      @CZukoff Whoa. Whoa. You respect the wishes of the mod author? What kind of gamer are you? That's like saying you don't understand why fat people won't stop eating candy. Disrespecting game developers and mod makers is like a built-in feature. :)

      I only wanted to add a bit more color to her face not give her the complete Jenny Jones makeover. I'll see if I can touch her up manually. Thanks anyway though.

      hah glad to see others using Transfer Tool. that thing is amazing. i've been "casting" roles in my game like actors in a movie lol. really is a must have for mods w/ characters that have distinctive personalities like 3DNPC. i think this video uses Transfer on some characters. the imperial lady captain at the start. about 2:45...

      @CZukoff
      I am calling bulls*** right now on the face lift quality nonsense.
      The last time this was updated was before CC was even announced.

      Also "out of respect", read the second paragraph of his permissions. archival purposes = allowed. If you want to get into the nitty gritty about the permissions on this mod, I've already sent an email to the creator about the language they used.

      Archive machines don't have to be a website service they could very much be a person... reddit has an entire section devoted to it with the modding community with modders getting petty over disagreements.

      @Shadohz
      Sorry you got played for a fool.

    Anybody ported her to SSE and found a way to fix the "What do you know about this place?" dialogue?
    When i ask her the question, nothing happens.

    Then again i think that was already an issue with the Oldrim version.

      Interesting, I just realized that she only answers this question in Rorikstead. I think it's involved in a quest there. I'm wondering if this dialogue is only supposed to be available there. If that's the case, then at least I know I'm not missing any dialogue.

      I ported Arissa to SE for personal use and she works great. The only issue I have with her is an issue I also had in Oldrim. The catch up option for her seems to get bugged so that she starts running in place forever. Ideally I'd like to disable that feature and just have her teleport to me like a vanilla follower would. Arissa is the only companion I've used that ever has that problem.

      The only thing I did to convert Arissa was to just unpack the BSA and run all of the meshes except for facegen through NIF Optimizer.

    Oh plz plz port her to SE! Awesome mod (All your mods I've encountered are). I love her character but cant seem to get her to work right, tried porting her following https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1ko8pNhCJo but still running into issues with other mods like convenient horses (can't seem to port the patch, I barely know what I'm doing with any of this). Can use AFT Make Follower which I was surprised to test still seemed to keep her regard feature in that I couldn't access her inventory right away (unless I force it in tweak follower) yet could use AFT features to get her to purchase and use a horse. Concerned about quest implications of doing that down the line though.
