Kain's Chosen Mods That Play Nice Together

Description
DISMISS ALL FOLLOWERS BEFORE STARTING THIS MOD

Allows up to 7 followers with MINIMAL SIDE EFFECTS for MAXIMUM COMPATIBILITY with other mods that alter existing or add unique followers.
*Will NOT alter outfits and equipment
*Will NOT change AI Aggression/Courage
*Will NOT alter Essential status of any follower
*Will NOT auto-level the follower ( Patch 1.6 already auto-levels. Additional leveling from a mod gives followers artificially inflated stats. You can be severely outclassed by your own followers - read the 'Empathy Spell' page from the 'Kain's Chosen Mods That Play Nice Together' link below for a fix)

Extra things this mod will do...
1) Replace 'Follow me. I need your help.' with 'Follow me for adventure!' Because let's be honest; you don't really need help.
2) Followers can use the bow and arrow you give them and will no longer use those invisible hunting bow and arrows
3) Adds the 'Adventurers Assemble!' ability

==================================================
For those that want Essential Followers...

I made 'Change Ally Mortality' for you:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=90416981

==================================================
ADVENTURERS ASSEMBLE!

This POWER teleports all ACTIVE party members to your current location and forces them to re-evaluate the situation.
... even if you last told them to wait in a cave on the other side of the world
... even if they were previously fighting others far away

It is also useful if you get blocked by your followers in a narrow space and need to get past them.

This power is considered 'silent' as far as AI noises go, and so it will not break your stealth intentions... assuming your followers are well-behaved.

==================================================
About followers riding horses...

The creation kit tool only exposes a checkbox which makes this feature a non-dynamic toggle. Due to popular demand, I have turned this feature back off (It was turned on as a result of popular demand to begin with). You can use 'Adventurers Assemble!' to bring them to you if you need them to catch up.

Read the comments and know the heated horse-riding saga before you request that followers ride horses.

==================================================
THIS MOD WILL NOT BE COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER MULTI-FOLLOWER MODS
... because it affects many of the same files that those mods affect using the same strategies that those mods use.

Why does this mod exist when the UFO (Ultimate Follower Overhaul) and AFT (Amazing Follower Tweaks) mods do so much more?
1) Those mods change the default outfits on any followers you have. This can lead to naked followers or undesired default outfits when I left them unattended for a while.
2) Those mods manually level follower stats. Patch 1.6 already manages leveling for followers, and so this extra leveling resulted in followers with about twice as much health/magicka/stamina as me at the same level.

The UFO and AFT mods are excellent mods if you don't mind those two issues. It is possible that future iterations of UFO and AFT will eliminate these problems. Use this mod instead of those only if you just want the "Multiple Followers" part with minimal changes to the actual followers and their associated dialog.

UFO: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/14037/
AFT: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1415880

==================================================
Why does this mod NOT support an infinite number of followers?

I wish it was as easy as simply specifying a number, but the Creation Kit makes additional follower slots manual and tedious.

I could add more, but 7 Samurai, ya know? You'd be the 8th.
Be a boss and manage them responsibly.

==================================================
Why are multiple Animal Followers not fully supported?
Because not all animals in the game use the follower script.

==================================================
RECRUITING BLADES:

I left management of that alone. That quest inherently assumes you intend to recruit the one follower you have. With this mod, it is impossible to determine which follower you intend to recruit, and so it will recruit the first follower in your list.

==================================================
Compatibility Notes with Other Mods...

Kain's Chosen Mods That Play Nice Together:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=89215590

Followers Keep Up:
*Only the first follower keeps up. I like to think of the first follower as my favorite follower :)

Followers Can Relax:
*This has been reported to play nice with that mod (thanks, RexJayden)

Any Follower mod where the follower spams inconsiderate AOE attacks:
*This MFL mod adds an ally relationship between followers, but apparently, the 'ignore friendly hits' status only applies to the player and not between NPCs or summoned creatures.
*If you find that allies are attacking another ally as a result of spammed attacks, try using your 'Adventurers Assemble!' power to straighten out their priorities (thanks, EK)
*Or better yet, take responsibility for the physical logistical chemistry between allies and manage them like a boss.

*Serena goes through another follower system not affected by this mod.

==================================================
TROUBLESHOOTING

MAKE SURE THIS MOD LOADS AFTER ALL OF YOUR OTHER FOLLOWER MODS

If that doesn't work, try this...
1) Dismiss all followers if you haven't already, then save
2) Uninstall any other mod that AFFECTS THE NUMBER of followers you can have (follow their uninstall instructions)
3) Load that save from step#1

Load order is important with other follower mods because some mods overwrite the same data, and those conflicts are resolved by whichever mod loads last.

If your follower responds to dialog like a party member but does not behave like one, then another mod has left your NPC in a bad currentfollower faction state. Do one of the following targeted console commands on that NPC:
'addfac 0005c84e -1' This removes that follower from CurrentFollowerFaction
or
'addfac 000bd738 -1' This removes that follower from CurrentHireling faction

If you are not satisified with the default outfit of your follower...
This mod won't fix any permanent effects from other mods, such as default outfits. If you uninstalled a mod without making sure the outfit situation is stable, then you will permanently have that default outfit (or naked follower if the outfit is missing) until you get another mod that sets the default outfit on that follower to something else. Note that default outfit is different from "currently worn equipment". It is basically the outfit that the follower wears when they have no tangible equipment in their inventory.

If your unique animal/follower mod is still not allowing multiples...
Then it is likely that the animal mod is circumventing the original system that gets animals to follow you. This mod intercepts the system used by animal trainers. Any animal mod that does not follow based on that will not allow multple animal followers.

==================================================
FOLLOWER SYSTEMS THAT ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THIS MOD:

This mod hooks into the main follower and animal trainer system. Some followers (like Cicero) will not use this system. Summons also do not use this system. Some mods and Dawnguard features involving followers do not use this system.

==================================================
To increase the chance of my genuine attention, please write that you have tried the steps in the troubleshooting section and report the outcome from that.

After many redundant posts from the 500+ comments below, I have become weary of addressing load order issues from people who did not read the troubleshooting section. As a result, I've decided to live my life and stop responding to the internet.

This mod has seemed to cause a problem many other multiple follower mods do for others. I had 4 followers, tried dismissing 3 of them. Only 1 worked. and he worked regardless of who I ACTUALLY dismissed. So now I have Lydia following me, and the game registers my "playerfollowercount" as 0. Dismissing her results in her saying she'll wait at home ( I don't own one yet) and she follows me still. Tried disabling and reenabling her, tried "resetai" and "recycleactor". Nada. Yay me
For some reason, this mod doesn't allow me to get followers. I select the option to have them join me, but they don't. I've tried the console commands in description and even one that adds an NPC as follower, but to no avail. I removed this mod and tried again and I was able to get a follower, so I'm certain there's something with this mod that's not allowing me to recruit anyone. I tried recruiting Lydia and Faendal, mind, so no custom followers and only follower related mods I have are the ones mentioned in description - Follower's Keep Up and Followers can Relax - and Change Ally Mortality.

I have a glitch. I installed this MOD and deleted it before dismiss J'zargo and Marcurio.

And after I deleted this MOD, I can't join them as a follower.

Anyone know how to fix this?
