Description
Makes the invisible re spawning bow on some followers visible, and prevents it from randomly
re spawning. (though it may still re spawn when you fire them) allows you to make your follower were what you want. (See Notes for details) Removes the guard faction tag from Aela, Farkus and Vilkas. Changed Farkus starting gear and changes some of Farkus stats so he can actually USE that heavy armour and 2 handed weapon he starts with, instead of being stuck with light armour and one handed skills. Changed Uthgerd the Unbroken's class from CombatWarrior1H to CombatWarrior2H. Rebuilt(and possibly enhanced) Illia's spell tree. Increased Illia's base deposition, possibly fixing her recruiting bug. Illia may now be married. Added Perks. Removed level cap. included the Light Foot perk. Gave Cicero the Shadow Warrior perk. Some Archer type followers have the Bullseye Perk. Njada Stonearm has several Shield perks others don't. Effected followers are those below. Will be adding more as time permits

**IMPORTANT NOTE ON HOW TO FIX FOLLOWERS RE SPAWNING RANDOM GEAR**
I recommend following ooriouuu's advice on this one, I know the problem can be annoying, it's an unfortunate side effect since DistantDeath's script is based off Mannequins, which most of you might remember can have a habit of constantly re spawning gear as well. hopefully DistantDeath can find a way around it soon, though in the mean time I'm afraid you're stuck with ooriouu's work around.

ooriouuu:
I found a workaround for the script. Disable this mod. Open game and load a save game. Remove the item from follower's inventory. Then make a new save. Quit game. Re-enable this mod and load last save. Fast travel and go into a building like Dragonsreach. The re spawning "better" armour does not happen anymore.




**LATEST UPDATE**
Added an update to DistantDeath's script that might fix the reverting issue
Followers added this update:
Athis
Njada Stonearm (with More shield perks)
Ria
Torvar



**NOTE**
DistantDeath has been kind enough to let me include his script, which allows you to outfit your followers however you see fit. When you first load up, you might have to fast travel first befor it'll kick in, but afterwards, you should be able to give them clothing, and they'll put that on instead of the default armour, and they will also keep that armour on after you dismiss them. with characters you want to use armour with that is better than the default, and you want them to keep it on after dismissing them, you'll need to take it off and put it back on, but only once. Unfortunately, with armour that has less armour value than the default, or with clothing, they may end up reverting to default upon fast travelling. It's not that bad though, since it seems only fast travelling triggers this. DistantDeath is working on it, and hopes to have a fix soon. (Might be fixed)

I've been searching for a mod that can let me make Cicero wear anything that I want. I tried this and it worked for a moment, but the second I gave him another piece of clothing to put on, the other one was taken off. And when I put new clothing on, all of his went off.

Have to downvote this mod, it created way more problems than fixing them. I made Dragon armors for my followers, tinkered into legendary, with this mod, whenever you ask the followers to carry something, they will instant equip them. It was annoying, but it was bearable until I asked Aela to carry some glass armors I picked up. Every time I fast travel, she just automatically spawns a full set glass armor and puts them on instead of using her Dragonscale set. I would remove the glass set, but if I use fast travel again, she will just spawn another glass set. This is ridic, then I removed this mod and everything works again. Followers no longer put on bad armors.

reaaaally tired to try an read that lol... so when i tell my follower to 'go home" (more less) they go back to the place where i picked them up. but when I go back to recruit them again i notice Every Time they have their auto equip gear on, youve got no idea how much i hate this...
sorry for the ramble comment but haha, does this mod fix that issue?
Thanks Much!

Mam problem z tym modem , mianowicie towarzysz zakłada tylko jeden element zbroi z zestawu : pancerz , buty , karwasze , tarcza . Czy to błąd , czy mod może ogranicza się tylko do jednego elementu ubioru ???
EquesCarbo Feb 15, 2014 @ 3:20am 
U mnie , jak na razie mod działa bez zarzutu , pomimo tego , że używam łącznie 58 modów . Należy ten mod załadować przed innymi modami zmieniającymi wygląd postaci . Teleportacji nie używam , więc nie wiem czy ma wpływ na mod-a . Daję ''łapkę'' , dziękuję i pozdrawiam .

having multiple saves shouldn't effect it, the script just seems to do this some times unfortunately >_<

@Remnant: thanks for your reply on this..ive tried doing that as well, ive taken back all his gear, use console to remove all other items and then created a new save game, restart and load the new save game...it worked for while as well but once i go inside a different building, its doing the same again...does having multiple save games affects this mod? i'll back track some previous save games to check...by the way do you have the link for this Ultimate followers overhaul?
