    A Special Announcement
    Hi all!
    Many of you will have already discovered this, but as of v1.6.0... Lucien now has proper, original, fully voiced conversations with Inigo, written and voiced by me and Smartbluecat! There are over 70 of these to find in the game, with no patch required - just update to the latest version of Lucien, pick them up, and they should start chatting! Thanks so much to everyone who's helped me keep this quiet over the past week so that people have had a chance to be surprised, it's all been so much fun  Here's a video with all the details:

      Or if you were able to gift Lucien a set (I know they're expensive, but you're the Dragonborn and you can give your followers kingly gifts) and have him be flattered and excited, especially since sometimes when trading with him he'll ask "Any chance on a helmet?" but these are BETTER. It'd be fun, but I know the author has also got a list of requests and probably his own update plans.

    I enjoy the mod I really do. I did not enjoy when Dumzbthar turned into HORDE MODE....rather disappointed that a smart character would turn into brute forcing Dwemerbots.

      Really? I love that mission. I also like the horde-type fights in the base game, like the Wolf Queen resurrected ones or when restoring the Gauldur Amulet. Sure, draugr are a different enemy type from automatons, but I enjoyed the difficulty spike. I also liked how Inigo had things to say during the mission, which was a nice touch.

    my lucien loses health randomly. in and out of combat, inside and outside. and stays in the crawling thing. healing him increases his health but it just continues to go down again.

      Select him via the console and type "SV" and hit ENTER. You should begin seeing a list of script names that target Lucien. Each script name will also have a memory address that should match the mods and their IDs. This can help you figure out if a script or spell from another mod has somehow targeted Lucien and isn't terminating properly.

      You might also try opening one of your savegame files in a save game cleaner like the ReSaver that comes with Fallrim Tools and see if you get any warnings about suspended stacks, or if your suspended stacks folder is full of a bunch of instances of the same script, or any other oddities in the save game. If so, make a backup of that save game and then you can try cleaning the save file. Cleaning a save file is hit-or-miss, and it would likely be easier to already know which mod or script is the problem (so hopefully the "SV" command or the warnings in ReSaver will be informative first) so that you could get guidance from the support pages of the problem mod such as a permanent solution.

      When in doubt it could just be the stupid "stuck in bleedout" bug that's still present in the base game. There are lots of articles about this, but some quick console commands to try (keep a backup save game first) are "resethealth" by itself or try "disable" followed by "enable". Sometimes those are all you need if it's just a problem with the game engine rather than conflict with another mod.

    Does enchanted gear effect Lucien's stats? When I gave him gear that should increase magicka nothing changed in the mcm menu. Or did his magicka increase but I simply can't see it in the mcm menu?

      The MCM probably only reports base magicka from the actor value, not a modified value from gear. As long as you are using an enchantment that is either one of these below ones from the vanilla game or comes from a mod but has the proper flags then it should successfully apply to Lucien or other followers:
      (Source of the above list of applicable base enchantments)
      Edit: I put the list under a spoiler to be kind to people's scrolling

    I um...seem to have run into a strange bug that only seems to happen in Dumzbthar when going back to recruit Lucien again. I head to the door where his room is and I suddenly get a black mist effect that also appears on the werewolf-like automatons. Unfortunately it's anytime I get near that room this effect shows up. I've tried dispelling all spells, I've tried the 'addspell/removespell' options I found online, but nothing gets rid of it unless I load a save. I'm really at a loss rn, I've never had this bug before until today :/

    Hey, weird/stupid question.
    NPCs don't use the player's name right? Like to make it easier for dynamic character creation?
    Lucien just called my character by his name (James), and I don't think he's ever done that before. Only happened twice so far, but ... a bit erie?

      You've discovered one of Lucien's unique subtle features by accident! He's got a decent sized list of named he'll recognize and respond to you by, most chosen by Patreon supporters. With SKSE installed he'll automatically and dynamically recognize and call you the names on the list if you name your character one of them.

      Yes, it's one of Lucien's features. And I can say that most of us when creating new characters are just picking names from the supported list, so Lucien can call us by name

    Thank you for making this mod, it's really adding a lot to my Skyrim playthrough! I'm amazed at the work people have put into making these mods, I only started playing Skyrim on the computer fairly recently and several of these mods are making this game wonderful. I like how Lucien keeps telling me that we really should warn the Jarl of the dragon attack on Helgen since I keep ignoring that quest since I dont want to awaken the dragons yet.

      He is in the Inn in Falkreath. Do you have by any chance any mod that would make any changes to tha location?

    Hi love Lucien but am have a real problem with his personal quest, when I get to  Dumzbthar core it keeps freezing. It starts after killing the "possessed" automaton, I can get it passed there but there is a point closer to the core where no matter what I do I can't avoid it freezing. I've tried reloading to earlier saves, restarting the quest from the start, uninstalling and reinstalling the mod, I've even tried to install an older mod but nothing works. I've read that the underground mod may cause the problem yet I've never had that installed, I don't have any landscape or dungeon texture overhaul installed. Is there any solution to resolving this problem, thanks for any help you can give.

    I'm guessing we're never going to to get a patch for Amazing Follower tweaks? Assuming the answer is no, is it possible to have him marked as essential?

      There will never be an AFT patch. That's the nature of followers designed with their own unique framework and set of features. AFT is a hard conflict with many of Lucien's features and always will be. Even "lighter" follower frameworks like NFF (Nether's Follower Framework) can cause issues because they attempt to take control of Lucien's AI or scripts and replaces it with their own, and the ones those frameworks use don't account for all the ways that Lucien is unique. That's just the nature of frameworks. They're great for dumb, dialogue-only (usually vanilla-voiced) followers, but are too heavy-handed with custom-designed NPCs that come bundled with loads of features.

      As for making him essential, I think that's author's choice to keep him mortal. It's easy enough to create a simple patch for your own purposes using xEdit and having it contain just the isEssential flag record. I don't know if Lucien's author has the time to knock one out for you, but this is super-simple for DIY modding if you're looking for an excuse to spend fifteen minutes learning.

      hi, do you know where I can find a tutorial to make a patch like that?
