Pre-Requisite

You are required to install followings first for Selene to work correctly and please verify SKSE is the correct version compatible with your Skyrim version.

  • SKSE 1.06.16 or higher

Recommended Mods to be used with this mod



Install and Usage

Please follow below steps to install this mod:
1. Install the mod using NMM or MO.

2. Selene's body type is TBBP body. So she need TBBP skeleton_female.hkx file to make her TBBP skeleton work perfectly. This mod will install TBBP skeleton_female.hkx file at "Meshes/Actors/Character/character assets female" folder. If you're using separate BBP or TBBP skeleton at "Meshes/Actors/Character/character assets female" folder for your own female character already, don't overwrite your file with skeleton_female.hkx included in this mod.
* NOTE: The main role of skeleton_female.hkx included in this mod is to fix arm animation bug of original TBBP skeleton when updating behaviors using FNIS. Even without this, there is no problem to play game. But arm of Selene is a little bit straight when she has a torch at night.

3. Run GenerateFNISforUsers.exe in the "Data/tools/GenerateFNIS_for_Users" folder to update FNIS behavior. You need to turn on "SKELETON Arm Fix" - see FNIS Description -> "Patches" option when you update FNIS behavior to fix arm animation bug of TBBP skeleton. This step is required only at the stage of installing this mod.

4. Install optional TBBP animation pack if you like to see female idle motions with TBBP. You can activate/deactivate this motion by turning on/off esp plugin on NMM/MO.
* NOTE: This TBBP idle animations will be applied to the all of female characters if you don't have specific animations for the female idle motion in "Data/Meshes/actors/character/animations/female" folder.

Interaction with companion
  • You can interact with Selene by dialogue conversation.
  • You can configure all of features regarding special skills, horse riding, and follower functions on the Sky-UI MCM menu.
  • You can give follower various remote command called "Selene's Soul" by pressing F2 key. This shortkey could be changed into another one on the MCM menu.

How to add music to dance
To add music to Selene's dance animation, You need to convert following songs into xwm files and rename it into following:


Please follow below steps for detail:
1. Download MultiXwm by Vikichan or other XWM converter.
2. Install and run MultiXwm ver.1.3.exe.
3. Convert downloaded Youtube dance music mp3 or wav files into xmw files (Recommend to use default bitrate 48kb/s).
- Be careful that all file extension of mp3 or wav files should be lower characters. i.e mp3 (ok), MP3 (not ok)
- MultiXwm can convert both mp3 and wav file into xwm file.
4. Place converted xmw files to "Data/Music/KateTrack" folder.
5. Run Skyrim and let Selene dance. Then, dance music will come out simultaneously

- Youtube Tools -
Torch Browser (Easy Youtube Downloading)
Youtube Downloader HD
MP4 to MP3 Converter

* PLEASE READ README.TXT FILE in "Data/Music/KateTrack" folder carefully then, you can find the easy and detail way to convert music from Youtube and additional links to Youtube music.


Frequently Asked Questions

Where is she?
She is in Riverwood hotel.

Should I need clean save?
Yes. If you use game save with history of old version of this mod, it can make Selene do odd operation or error.

Can I use her with other animation mod?
Sure. I recommend to use Female Animation Pack by NonokuraSan for nice 1H weapon and shield motions.

Selene would not follow me even if she is my teammate.
Please restart saved game or new game. And load Selene mod again(The save should be the one without history of Selene). When the message "Companion [Selene Kate] Loaded" is displayed on the top/left of the screen, plz wait for 2-3 minutes. The time is required to load her (quest alias) completely. Then, let Selene be a teammate. She'll follow you.

Her body color is abnormal.
If you use BSA version, this situation could be happened. However, it is very rare case. Using LOOSE version would resolve this problem. To make LOOSE version, extract files from BSA package version using following tools:
. Fallout mod manager by Timeslip
. BSA Browser by Fawzib Rojas
. BSAopt - Bethesda Archive Management and Optimization by Ethatron

How can I use 1H Aurablade skill for Player in her inventory?
1. Learn the skill by clicking book.
2. Select Aurablade spell by pressing "P" key.
3. Equip spell by pressing "Z" key.
4. Equip onehanded weapon. And do forward/backward/left/right powerattack.

Is it possible to use Selene without FNIS?
Basically, Yes. However you can not enjoy the dance dialogue that plays dance animations of Vocaloid or Girl Group Singers in Asia. And you can not kiss Selene also. But does not matter to play Skyrim, it is only for entertaining boring Player.

How can I exchange her armor with other one?
1. Take off her default hidden armor by selecting dialogue menu 「Selene... -> I want to see you naked」.
2. Then, take away all of her armor in the inventory to your's.
3. Give her the armor what you want to put on. Then, she'll put on the armor you give.
4. Put extra armor that she is not wearing into her extra inventories by selecting dialogue menu 「Show me your extra inventory」". Then, she'll not put on extra remaining armor again.

How can I find MCM menu?
if you press ESC key, then you can see "Companion Selene" menu. Sky-UI should be installed first.

Where are Selene's extra armors, bikini, and jewelry provided by this mod?
Please find it in the Selene's extra inventory #3.

The F2 key for Selene's Soul does not work.
Selene's Soul is available when you are teammate with Selene only.
And if F2 key does not work, go to MCM menu and select「Game Setting」menu. Here, re-assign F2 key into other one. Then you can use Selene's soul.

I'm using Dual Sheath Redux. How can I make her shield on back?
1. Make folder "Data/Meshes/actors/character/KateBody".
2. Copy your skeleton_female.nif in "Data/Meshes/actors/character/character assets female" folder into "Data/Meshes/actors/character/KateBody".
* NOTE: your skeleton_female.nif file should be from XPMS that support TBBP & SOB.
3. Try Dual Sheath Redux again and see Selene's auriels shield position on her back.

She just left from me. How can I find her?
If you make her wait for 10 days in game time, she'll leave from you.
You can call her using「MCM -> Game Setting -> move to player」option again.
Please don't make her wait for a long time. Recommend to use Relax rather than Wait if you don't need her.

She does not return to her specified home on the MCM when I dismiss her.
If she does not move and hold position when you dismiss her. There is a problem in the specified home on the MCM such as you don't buy or build that home, or you never visit that home with Selene once before.

I've got CTD when this mod is applied to. What is the root cause?
I don't know exactly. There are tons of possible root causes to make CTD in the interaction between mods installed. I've got made and tested this mod on the basis of vanilla Skyrim without any mod installed except pre-requisites. I can not see any CTD on the pure platform like this. Possibly, you can suspect problems relating with TBBP skeleton or animation, race compatibility, lacking of VRAM from high resolution textures, save corruption by other scripts and so on. Please look into your Skyrim mod system carefully and think it is very good oppertunity to learn. Following mods will help you with cleaning scripts and textures.
