    Kersplat! Yazoo! Shazam! It's Croc! For a laugh, I made a new, very small scale follower mod, based on the wonderful platformer games from 1997 and 1999.

    I really love Lucien but I cant make him have banters with Kaidan. They just wont talk to each other. I even jump start it by forcing setstage JRLucienKaidan, nothing happens. I talked to the mod authors of Kaidan 2 Extended Voicelines and tried everything with them but still wont work. I think its Lucien mod itself that have problems with script of Kaidan 2 and Kaidan 2 extended voicelines. Anyone can help?

      I'm afraid it must be something on your end - Lucien is compatible with Extended Voicelines, the only way another mod could make Lucien incompatible with Kaidan is to outright delete Kaidan. Don't set the stages with the console, that won't trigger any dialogue, it just keeps track of their relationship. Have you tried on a new playthrough?

      I've actually been experiencing something similar since using Kaidan Extended (even before I added the Drinking Patch). They introduce themselves just fine, and they have a few banters here and there, but after that they just dry up completely. I'm not especially concerned, since I have a lot of cross-banter going on between various companions, but I am curious as to what's going on. It could be something on my end, it could even be a load order problem (though I tried moving Lucien and his associated patches below Kaidan's mod group and nothing changed), or it could be something else; I'm uncertain. I've experienced this on multiple playthroughs, several of them new/recent, since I've been doing a lot of general testing lately. I already need to check XEdit for a different kaidan-related issue, so I'll look at Lucien while I'm there. Though... I am inexperienced using XEdit for conflict checking, and due to RL, my head is mush currently, so it this may take a bit.

      I seem to remember there being more interactions in a previous playthrough with both Lucien and Kaidan as well. At the moment, Lucien is at the stage where he's complaining that it's impossible to get through to Kaidan. However, I seem to remember there being a turning point in their relationship eventually.

      My theory has been that I'll probably need to complete the main quest and perhaps also Kaidan's side quests before those lines unlock, but it's just been a theory. Some confirmation would be appreciated.

      To unlock Kaidan and Lucien's more positive relationship turn, Kaidan has to get downed in combat, IIRC. So you might need to throw Kaidan in some low-level armour rather than his personal set.

    Is Lucien supposed to be immortal? I´ve gotten into some strange problems where Lucien is spawned unresponsive half-way clipping through the floor and dropping from the sky. I tried disable-enable and it worked for some time but now i have exactly the same problem.
    I then disabled him and moments later he dropped from the sky.

      He's essential while he's following you, protected when dismissed. Attacking him enough times will cause him to leave your service and then become killable, but when he's following you he won't die (just go into bleedout worst case). I have no idea why he'd be dropping from the sky or spawning clipped with other meshes though.

      What Shawn said is absolutely correct. Random thought - might you have accidentally used the "tcl" console command on him? That might lead to the behaviour you're describing.

      I´m absolutely certain I´ve never used that command on him. But I can say the first time I noticed it was when entering Leaf Rest (modded player-home). He was stuck in the floor in the first room.

      yes, but then I could revive him with no problems, now he's just a corpse that speaks.. and it only happened once.

    Goofy question, but does Lucien have follower dialog for moving him into a home? I don't seem to be able to assign him to stay in my house. I know I can track him down with the quest marker if I ever need to do so, but I prefer to stick my followers in my house where I can find them. 

    Thanks!

      Nope, he can't live in any of your houses. He has his own place, once you advance his personal quest enough. Where he will live and go when dismissed. Before that he goes to the inn where you recruited him.

      Don't try to force on Lucien different home by third party mods. You will break him.

      This. However, you can always tell him to wait in your home, and he'll hang around indefinitely until you next come pick him up.

      Thanks for the replies. I had a feeling that was the case when I read a few other comments, but I wanted to ask. Since he's not occupying a follower slot I might just drag him to Hendraheim and ask him to wait.

    Thank you for Lucien. He easy became my favourite follower and now I can't any game without him. I love his comments on the lore, his sassy remarks, his thirst for knowledge and I also love his voice when it goes a bit squaeky when he is excited and or afraid. That's make him so human and loveable. Thank you for your hard work.

      I too like his "milkdrinker" personality. There are plenty of super hero followers, but none is as relatable as Lucien

    Do you plan adding a CC patch for Fishing? It would be so much fun to have Lucien make comments on fish caught or junk collected as well as quests done. I'm using the voiced version of it (and the voiced version of Saints and Seducers).

      I'm looking forward to it. Imagining Lucien comparing the size of fish from Skyrim and Cyrodiil... Or commenting on his eating fish with some relatives... or mocking my attempts at fishing. Or commenting on the quests.
      Can't Lucien go fishing too? Just to help me out? :) THAT would be fun.

    Hi, so in my game Lucien likes to follow about 30 to 50 meters behind me, making it so that I rarely hear anything he says which is annoying.  In dungeons he followes me a bit past the entrances but them stops around what would be a lobby, though that is in the smaller ones as I haven't gotten to any of the big ones with him yet.  I'm using AFT (I'm not managing him in any way, I'm just using it for multiple followers), and also Anna NPC's and a few others with external frameworks.  So I'm thinking the most likely solution would be to dismiss everyone and start with him as they seem to follow in order of hiring, but I'm not 100% sure so I wanted to get some advice, and also so I wouldn't have to travel the map again to find them all, but if that's all it is it's not that bad.  Any help would be appreciated.

      Yeah, if you have lots of followers they'll naturally space out, that's how the game works. There's no special order. If you've got so many you can't hear Lucien talk, you'll have to dismiss a few.

      There's a mod "Formation with Followers" that lets you define where followers follow. Maybe give it a try?

      I'm not familiar with that mod, but do bear in mind I can't provide any support for the use of external mods on Lucien. It sounds like exactly the sort of thing that could break him, so you'd be "voiding his warranty", as it were.

      you can disable it with a few clicks if he isn't around or wants you to follow or so. How often does he take the lead?

      It doesn't matter who's taking the lead, you'll still almost certainly be breaking his functionality, even if it isn't immediately obvious.

    Question: 
    The AE bundle patch is saying it's missing all of the ESL files... 
    Do I need to download each ESL individually, even though the patch is supposedly to remove needing to do that?

      What does it say exactly? That it is missing the masters? Did you buy all of the CC stuff these patches are for?

      I'm working on the assumption that the patches are only for the stuff AE shoved down our throats. It is saying it's missing masters (22 of them), and as a ballpark guesstimate, the combined patch size looks about the same the individual patches.
      I don't mind if I do need them, since they're ESLs, and won't really negatively affect mod count, but... Kinda counter intuitive to have an all-in-one for ESLs, as an ESP.
      (Why, oh why does bethsoft do this to us?)

      Well if you didn't buy the anniversary edition bundle on Steam then you don't have all of the CC stuff that is required for the all in one patch file.

      Just download the Lucien patches only for - Saints and Seducers - and for Rare Curios. As those were given freely with the AE update without the need to buy the additional bundle.

      Anniversary Edition is Skyrim SE + All the Creation Club files. You're confusing it with the v1.6 update. Only use the Anniversary Edition patch if you bought Anniversary Edition.

      As for complaining about it being an esp, esls have a size limit. By the time the All-In-One covers all the CC DLC, it'll be bigger than that, hence it's an esp.
