GENERAL NEWS
April 24, 2018: Well crap... Looks like I have to do the Marriable Serana mod.

Thank you everyone for the huge support for the mod and getting in close on the hot files and in the lead for the file of the month for this month. Any support is appreciated and getting this mod on there really helps boost awareness of the mod. So, I wanted to touch base with people and give you an idea what I am planning on Version 1.0 of the mod. But first things first, some bad news:

-Because porting the mod to Bethesda.net for XBox One is being bigger pain than expected and I want to start getting Version 1.0 out the door (by beating my May 6 deadline), I am going to hold off the mod being released on XBox One until Version 1.0. I apologize to those that were waiting for this, but I'd rather it done right than having to rush this.

-Version 1.0 will be dealing with the expanded dialogue in Dragonborn. Those who used the old build of the mod will remember some of that dialogue. A chunk of that will be returning to the mod as well as many other things. The relationship mechanic will be expanded into this as well.

-On the subject of the relationship mechanic, I will making a few tweaks of the system in Version 1.0. I will also be adding the idolize/condemn dialogues in this version as well. I am planning on consequences with having very low affinity with Serana if that happens (her leaving your company with a cooldown timer based on the low affinity score). At the same time, I am planning on having the affinity be boosted over time (as long as Serana is your follower and have positive affinity with her). These two features won't be unlocked until Post-Dawnguard.

-There was an unexpected conflict with this mod and Book Covers Skyrim (and by extension, Legacy of the Dragonborn). While I added patches immediately here, I am just going to move my trigger script somewhere else as this conflict affects literally one texture file (where it gets reverted to the vanilla note). Rather than deal with compatibility patches for one note, I will just move it.

-I will still be adding more Hearthfire and Post-Dawnguard stuff in Version 1.0. I will also be tackling Lost to the Ages quest sometime in the next few months as well as other non-main Dawnguard stuff.

-Also, some of you noticed that I didn't formally announce Version 1.2 being the Dark Brotherhood as I am still debating on doing that or having Version 1.2 be more of a feature Version where I add stuff behind the scenes. This will be decided once Version 1.1 is getting started.

-Lastly, those who are new this mod have not gotten to understand my stance on Serana being married. The short of it is that I was never a fan of it for lore reasons and audio pool reasons (while I completely respect the mod author of Marriable Serana for his work, it never was my thing... followers of my Oldrim page can attest to this). But at the same time I still want people to have that choice for SSE.

Here's the deal, I am going to be working on another mod for Serana once Version 1.0 is completed (that will never see the light of day on the Nexus - it's a personal mod per se) and I will never let Serana be married on this mod. But if this mod wins File of the Month for this month, I will STRONGLY consider making a Marriable Serana mod for SSE (if Marriable Serana isn't officially ported on SSE). It will be separate mod and I will most likely have that mod require this mod (as I would like to incorporate the affinity system on here with my version of the Marriable Serana mod).

And I will say this off the bat, it will take some time to build the mod as I have to understand how the marriage system works on here so don't expect this mod until probably August/September of this year, if everything goes right.

The updated schedule of the next few releases will go as follows:

May 6:
 Version 1.0 (Dragonborn)/XBox One Release/More Relationship Mechanic Features
June 17 (Scheduled): Version 1.1 (Boethiah's Calling and The House of Horrors)/More Relationship Mechanic Features
July 15 (Scheduled): Version 1.2 (Dark Brotherhood)
August 26 (Scheduled): Version 1.2 (Companions) or Marriable Serana 

What does this mod do?
This mod modifies, fixes and expands Serana's dialogue. The additional dialogues for Serana are fully voiced - utilizing Serana's dialogue pool. The Serana's dialogue expansion goes into Dragonborn and Hearthfire.

How to install the mod?
If installing from NMM, just click on the mod and let NMM install it. If installing manually, just take the .bsa and .esp files and put them in the data folder for Skyrim. Nothing special. If installing manually, just make sure that the mod is activated in the Data Files when opening Skyrim. If using a previous version of this mod, remove the two files (either through NMN or manual), download the latest version of this mod and install.

What is the reason for making this mod?
It started off with fixing a few lines that I felt made Serana a very flat NPC that showed obvious signs that she was rushed by Bethesda. It soon spiraled into the monster that it is today. Mostly, this was meant to be my way of entering into the modding community and learn about the Creation Kit and modding.

What changes does this mod make?
Read the official README of the mod in the README section of the mod page.
