Adds an ability that will permanently make your followers immune to your damage while in combat. This way you can use your weapons, spells and shouts freely without harming your allies.

*The Follower Protection Ability will be added automatically upon loading your saved game.
*They are only immune to your damage while in combat. If you start a fight with them, they will still take damage and fight back like normal.
*Creatures summoned by your followers will still take damage.
*I know this is available as a Black Book Insight perk. The point of this mod is making it available for people who don't have Dragonborn or want to choose a different Insight perk.

Q: Why does Storm Call still hurt my followers?
A: That's the way Storm Call is set up. There are mods out there that change Storm Call to only target hostiles, but they don't really work. Sorry.

*Sometimes mid-combat your weapons may display that they cause 0 damage, however this is just a display problem. The weapon still causes the correct ammount of damage and I've found that it will normally fix itself after combat.

If you have any problems or suggestions please leave a comment.

Be sure to check out my other mods.

Enjoy and remember to rate :)

If you have the dragonborn DLC just enter this in the console "player.addspell 0301e7f5" without quotes. It will give you Companion's Insight which does exactly what this mod was intended to do. ""Your attacks, shouts, and destruction spells do no damage to your followers when in combat."

@BiggestMex, the way load order works is whatever is at the bottom overrides everything else so setting this at the top would mean everything else in your load order is overriding it. Sounds counter intuitive but, that's how things work e.g. I use Alternate Start by Arthmoor and it forces itself to the very bottom - this isn't really a problem for my mods but it helps in that I know anything listed below it needs to be processed through LOOT or set above Alternate Start because it won't load into the game otherwise.

@Zodiac, I've had followers go hostile on eachother before - best way to deal with it aside from changing cells to interrupt them is to be very good at illusion or to play as an Imperial and voice of the emperor. That said, if you have mod followers that warp to the player - turn that off. I know it's incredibly incovinent but, it's more inconvient to get killed by your follower warping to you while in an attack and you get the idea.

I really don't think this is working anymore.
I moved it to the top of my list & Jordis still gets in the way, takes damage & then yells at me. I'm the freaking Dragonborn. No one yells at me.
Unsubbing for now, hope it gets fixed.

question, can you make a companion mod to this, that makes followers attacks not do any damage to player, or not any damage with their attacks and spells to other followers as well? because sometimes my followers get in each other's way for attacks and stuff, and then go hostile towards that follower.
