About this mod

Most followers are useless piles of meat without any perks whatsoever and low max levels. I changed that.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
Every follower in vanilla Skyrim has been enhanced, and with the exception of Housecarls, that are set to essential, every follower is now protected (unless they were essential to begin with, like Aela). With a few exceptions (that I will point out), all followers have a max level of 60. I will not mention the perks they have in the vanilla game, unless I removed them.

About compatibility: it is not compatible with mods that modify the same NPCs. That includes mods that change how they look, like what the Bijin's series of mods or Diversity do. However I'm willing to upload some patches if anyone is interested.
