Better Follower Improvements

IMPORTANT: This mod is no longer required. You only need "Horses for Followers." The content of this mod + much more is now part of Horses for Followers.

The last update is just an empty plugin, although it will still register with your saves. This is to ensure it cannot clash with the new version of Horses for Followers.

Do a "partially cleaned save" install as described in Horses for Followers. This will ensure there are no errors or redundant data resident in your saves.

@Spudgunner I've never used Nexus before but I'll give it a shot. Thank you for your timely response.

@TheWhiteKnight Go to the "Horses for Followers" page at Nexus. Ignore the main file and download the hotfix plugin. Then copy it over the plugin from the workshop in the Skyrim/Data folder.

@Spudgunner, I haven't played this game for a couple of years. I subscribed to Better Followers and Horses for Followers back then. I really liked the Better Followers MOD, it stopped them from being right up your ass and blocking you in all doorways, not to the mention the dozens of others annoying things they do.

Since I started playing again I followed your on-screen instructions explicitly. However, I'm finding that the followers have reverted to their annoying vanilla actions. Could you advice why this may be?

@RedMage This is an empty plugin - it does nothing. I moved everything into Horses for Followers for simplicity. I made it empty to help facilitate the cross-over to a single mod for existing users.

Remove this plugin from your data folder, then subscribe to "Horses for Followers" (link on the right). Then head over to Nexus and get the hotfix to replace the plugin.

When you play, just go to a stable and buy your own horse (if you haven't got one yet), then buy the followers horse. You should see "I need a horse for my companion." Companion = followers, hirelings and, if you have done the quests, The Companion Guild members. There are other type of special followers but they aren't included yet.

@Old gamer Sorry you had to go back in your game. Was that save from before you installed the mod? Well thats one kind of a clean save method.

When you say freeze, was that the whole game or an animation stopped? If it was a stuck animation you could have opened the console , click the frozen NPC and type disable . turn console off and the NPC disappears. Immediately turn console on again and type enable . Don't lose the ID if ever you do this. Then the animation state fixes itself. Another way is to go through a load door and return sometimes works.

Its recommended to install over a clean save because the new versions of Horse For Followers is structured differently. If you click this link: Horses For Followers or click the link on the right under Required Items . Go down to the comments section and find one of mine dated 16 Oct. There I show how to install over partially cleaned save.

Well, I did have a little trouble. When I clicked "Continue from your last saved game" it said its usual "This save relies on content that is no longer present" I clicked "Yes" and the game would freeze right after that. Went into my Skyrim folder and deleted a couple of saves and fixed it right up.

Hm. Well I ain't havin' no trouble with my horses. Think I'll just leave'em alone.

This is to ensure that it cannot clash with the new version of Horses For Followers, which no longer requires this file. Just follow the Partially Clean Save install described by the new mod and readmes.

THIS MOD IS NO LONGER REQUIRED FOR HORSES FOR FOLLOWERS. The content of this mod and much more is rolled into a single mod. Only subscribe to Horses for Followers (same author).
