With all the bugs and broken quests playing Skyrim without the console is nearly impossible, so it's actually a very helpful tool. I like to keep my mods and load order clean and tidy as Skyrim has the potential to bloat up savegames until they don't work anymore even without dozens, or even hundreds, of mods. There are console commands such as "set timescale to x" or "setessential" that have been included in many mods with all sorts of explanations why the mod authors did it, and there are a lot of users who use these mods without knowing how simple it is to do it themselves. Well, it's their responsibilty what they're doing with their own games.

It's not your concern as a mod author what others do: using mods is always at the risk of the user, that's the entire deal about modding. If I use material that's possibly harmful simply because I haven't informed myself about it, I cannot blame anyone except myself.

I've seen users installing mods that give them 10,000 gold instead of simply using the console command. Asked about why they used the mod instead of the console, they said that the latter would be cheating. Whatever, I don't have to understand everybody's weird notion of logic.

Just open the console, click on Lydia, so her ID gets displayed and type:

setessential >ID< 1

It should be something like this then:

setessential 000A2C8E 1

No need to load yet another mod and possibly get your save games corrupted. The game is already unstable enough, so you should learn to use the console for this instead of installing a superfluous mod.

i can only guess that some mods you have are conflicting with each other,the mod doesnt need any tricks or dlc to my knowledge im sorry i can say anything else or something more specific

Make a non-Dawnguard version please.

It won't run without it.
