Elly Follower





Elly was my first and still my only follower. She's an Engineer cat girl dressed in steampunk looking outfit mixed with Dwemer armor parts. She fights by throwing gears at her enemies and if she gets in melee range, she fights with a wrench  that have a small chance to briefly disable machines. She can also call a dwemer spider to help her in combat.

She lives in Markarth Warren in a small room full of Dwemer junk. There's also 2 or 3 hidden things to find in her room and her bed can be used by player. When dismissed she should return there. If you have any mod that modify this area, they will most likely conflict.

If you only want her outfit, you can get it here: EngineerOutfit.7z
Instruction to get the outfit are in Readme file.

Credit for Throw Gear spell goes to Trainwiz. I literally copy pasted it from Dwemer Spectres.

Special thanks to kirinann because one of her Oblivion mash-up helped me set up for a final look.

  2. Yo, should throw this out there: the download is broken.

    1. Looks like Mediafire decided to block all my files for whatever reason.
      I'm trying to look into it but they give no information about anything.

      Delete
    2. I'm getting a "download limit" error for "encrypted or corrupted files". If you're using 7zip for the file format, mediafire MIGHT be recognizing those as "encrypted", or else seeing the actual functional files as "corrupted". This seems to be a current thing, as I'm finding is showing up across a bunch of other mods, but it's not consistent across these conditions, just Mediafire boning up their file scanning.

      Delete
    3. From what I can see, only certain files that are listed on this blog show this error.
      And also probably only the files that are also shared on Japanese websites. For example Monk outfit work, but pajama doesn't.

      The error also says "We have informed the owner that sharing of this file has been limited and how they can resolve this issue."
      which is completely false. They have not informed me.

      I contacted them and waiting reply now.

    4. Armor only download no longer works. Was hoping to add this to my armor collection.

      Delete
  3. I changed the link to box.com for now.
    Hopefully mediafire will reply to me on Monday.

    I'll change other blocked links later today.

  4. Which mods did you use to make her look like that

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I used Enhanced Character Edit from Nexus with Univision face textures which I arranged to work with navetsea body texture. Neckseam is hidden under her necklace so that was pretty easy. I used cat disguise for her tail and earx, but I replaced her ear model with Elin squirrel ears from one of Tera port. Her hair are Leliana's hair from Dragon Age.

      Delete
    2. And the body mod? How did you make her a teenager?

      Delete
    3. I think she uses CBBE slim. Which is a very old version of CBBE from before bodyslide.

  5. Thanks for share friend.... ;)

  6. She is very very cute !!!
    Please remake as Babette!

  7. How do I install? Sorry very new to this and can't get Elly to show up

    ReplyDelete
  8. Copy meshes and textures folder and Ellyfollower.esp from the archive to Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Data\
    She is non essential by default. If you want essential version, open the folder named Extra and Essential and copy the esp found there to Skyrim\data\ and overwrite when asked.
    Then active Ellyfollower.esp with the mod manager of your choice.
    Load order shouldn't matter unless you have a mod that changes the Warrens in Markarth.

    I think you should be able to install her with Nexus Mod manager too. Except you will still need to manually replace the esp to make her essential. If you install her with NMM the folder Extra should be copied into your Skyrim\data\ directory. So you can copy the right esp back into data.



    She should be sitting in her room in Markarth Warren. Her room is 2nd or 3rd door on your right when you enter.

    1. I followed all of your steps but every time I go to Markarth Warren and go to what should be her room it is still a collapsed pile of rubble. Maybe I'm missing a file that's supposed to alter that to make a room for her? Is there a command I can type in to just summon her, since she should exist? Thank you for your time and patience :)

      Delete
    2. You should try placing Ellyfollower.esp at the bottom of your load order, just above Bashed Patch esp if you use wrye bash. In case you have another mod that modify that cell.

      You should be able to type
      help elly
      and see if she show up in console.
      To use moveto with npc you need RefID but the only way I know of finding RefID is by clicking them with console open.

      Delete
    3. Hmm, I tried moving her to the bottom of my load order but she still doesn't appear. I'm pretty sure I don't have any mods that modify that cell, but maybe one of my mods is just interfering with it. Too bad :(

      Delete
    4. :( This is sad. I cannot find what would make her not work like this. She's fairly simple for a mod and her room should normally appear even with only the esp.

  9. The link is down. Can you update?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Can you assist with that barrier from her towards player outside of town? Tried almost everything, it won't go away.

    1. What do you mean by barrier?

    2. Problem was with Upgraded Weapons and Armors for Enemies mod, something in actor or race data.
      Thanks for sharing, she's amazing.

      Delete
    3. Were you able to fix it? Because I'm having the same problem and I'm unnable to find why it happens.
      Also, there's two pics demonstrating the problem Haishao, I hope you can help me with it.

    4. That's strange. I will look into it. She'll maybe need the race compatibility plugin. Which didn't exist when I created her.

      Delete
    5. Thanks for the reply, meanwhile I'll have her and her barrier around skyrim.

      Delete
    6. Is this happening with other custom followers? I cannot seem to find what would make Elly do this in particular and I could try to compare with other follower that don't have this issue.

      Delete
    7. Not that I'm aware of, but I'll try with some race custom followers, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't happen with any other follower.
      Also I'll try uninstalling her and re installing, maybe this will fix this "bug".

      Delete
    8. Yeah i am also running into the same problem with the barrier always going off and on. I know this is a very old topic but if anyone may know why. Feel free to respond.

  11. Great work! Did you use hires textures for her armor?
    My game slows down when her armor is equipped.

    Well my pc is rather old. The mod works great and I like it!
    Any other armors fit her?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Most textures are vanilla or oblivion & fallout quality texture. Her outfit have many objects though so it can slow down a bit I imagine.

      As for other outfit I don't know. Anything you want could fit her. She uses CBBE Slim if I remember. You can check on Dragonporn or Modtype to see if you find something you like. I stink if you use mods like EFF for your follower you should be able to give her a new outfit. She might lose her ears and tail though, since I made them outfit.

      If you know how to use nifskope a bit, You can also delete some parts of her armor, like most objects on her belt. I imagine that would reduce some load.

    2. Thanks for the advice! I'll do that :D

  12. both links are down T_T please reupload, she looks so pretty

    1. Mega file is still up. I think you need a plugin if you use firefox for the site to work. Box.com mirror was down so I changed it to Zippyshare.

  13. please my friend, can you make a magic power to throw dwemer disc for the player ? i hope you can do this, lovely remplace it with a better weapon like the prédator disc or like in van helsin movie....can you do that ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Her spell is available to player already :) There's a hidden note next to her bed under a dwemer cog that teach the spell "Throw Gear"
      To make the disc like in predator or van helsing I would need the model though.

      Delete
  14. Make her marriable, or maybe just make it so the mod "Make your spouse live anywhere" from nexus will let her live somewhere else, because i just started a new save, and i thought i should RP this one, so im using scenic carriages and i just got to Riften , so i thought she would stay in the poor people quarters part.(I KNOW, SERIOUSLY FRIGGIN LONG)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thanks, great unique follower, the placement is really well done too.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Is there any way you could make her look at the player when dialogue is initiated? Great mod by the way, but it would be nice if she'd look up at the player's face when talking.

    ReplyDelete
  17. HI. I tried installing her, and it looked like it worked because I see her room shes just not in it. I looked all over the warrens and nothing :( is there a console command I can use to bring her to me?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sorry for delay, I must have missed your message. It's strange that she wouldn't be in her room. Everytime I went there she was sitting on her chair eating a bread. Maybe she was finally full and decided to look around. Try to do moveto 0201448a in console. This is her RefID and I think it stay the same from game to game.

      Delete
  18. is she on steam or nexus, if not could you put her up?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. She's not on Nexus because she uses a few assets that would make her illegal due to their site rules. I also never uploaded any mods on steam yet because I never packaged them in BSA and I don't know what's their limited file size. I might look into posting some mods on steam eventually.

  19. Hello. I love your follower by the way -- about to download but my reason for posting is related to how you created the look and got it to work in the CK. I have ECE and have created character faces that I want to import for an npc but when I follow instructions (setting nose32...like it says for the mod) it imports "sort of" but seems to default the sliders rather than importing the changes I made in the race menu. Is there a trick to that? I'm sure you're a busy person, and I appreciate any reply you can give :)

    Awesome work btw!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmm, I'm not too sure. She was done with the very old version of ece and didn't have all these slider. Did you export the facegen data? To do so you have to select your Actor in the actor page and do CTRL+F4. This should export facegen textures and model in your data folder and should keep the settings from ECE. If you share your npc you will need to send those file too in the package.

      I hope this help

  21. this is a most excellent follower, and is the most reliable out of of all that may follow me using UFO, uses Convenient Horses, and puts on anything I give here with minimal clipping, also major bonus is the ability to create new character using same model as Elly with a new entry under race for Young Nord, have good stats from the getgo. This may be due to interference from another mod, but I'm not complaining and in fact am having immense fun...

  22. Hi im just wondering what Skeleton is used for this Model ( Skeletonx117 ) and are any armor's Compatable to use for her like if an armor that has Waveing Cape or Straps and such later on , would the Follower not be able to use them cause it may CTD ( Crash the game ) , Just wondering if the Skeleton could be changed to another or is it Unique to ( Skeletonx117) and will not work if changed to another one , also how can I make her look up at the Player instead of Just Straight ahead ...

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi.
      Her skeleton is an old x117 that was posted on japanese file share website in early 2012. Only armors that would not be compatible with her with this skeleton are the one with bouncing butt or breasts. Because that came later and this skeleton is missing those bones. Her skeleton can be changed though You just need to copy it in her folder and rename it the same so the game can find it. She might change height and weight a bit because x117 have much smaller frame.

      She always looked at played when I played with her. Maybe changing her skeleton will fix it for you.

    2. Hello Haishao , I did try to change her skeleton to be able to have the Feature that I Mentioned that is the Ability to change the Bolt and Arrows and Daggers and Swords Position with a Skeleton from XP32 Maximum that has the Bones Needed to Make it work but when I tried it & also renamed the Skeleton to the one that came with your Elly , I used the Skeleton from a Mod that is called lilMonli & her Body Height Size Changed to an Adult Body Size & that is not what I want . I wanna Keep her as close to Original as you made her but with the Feature that the Armor's Have in Waving Cloaks and so forth , I'm Hoping that maybe I'll be able to Learn how to Resize the XP32 Maximum Skeleton to Ellys Body & Keep her Size the same some day , Hopefully I'll be able to & not Give up cause I sure don't have any Clue How to Shrink the Skeleton to be the same as the one that came with your Mod :(

    3. Hello Haishao , I Finaly got the Skeleton to work withought Crashing and Kept Ellys Body Height Size withought Issue , Just wanted to let you know I got it Figured out finaly XD , The Stress is going away I can feel it lolz anyways Amazing Follower , she will be the Only Follower I will ever use & again Great Work ^_^

  23. Elly is the only mod I use that is not from Nexus or Steam and it is a shame that you cannot list her there as she would be quite popular. I only became aware of her via the random luck of an unrelated Google search. She is by far my favorite non-vanilla follower. For some reason every other teen follower mod out there is either too cartoonish, to adult or too childlike.

    Thanks for the great work.

  29. I like the throw gears and summon spider abilities, however can you expand her abilities to include summon dwarven spheres or summon centurions? or make it that at your hearthfire house you include a dialog option that lets her build centurions and spheres and have them guard the place?

  30. great mod, i had seen this armor in a screenshot could not find it anywhere and now i found it, would unpb work with this armor?

  31. Hi,
    I was planning to make a CBBE conversion of your outfit, but finally make my own version, just keeping some parts of the meshes.
    Would you be OK if this new mashup is uploaded on NEXUS ?
    Other problem is ... I don't know who must be credited for the work. I have a look to kirinann's page and found some (gloves and belt) but don't know about the leggings and straps. Dwemer gear seems to be vanilla, and the other assets I'm using comes from other authors.
    Thanks for the mod.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi, I really like the character even though she doesn't have an original voice.
    However, I really want to request for a file without her underwear on, as I have other Petite outfit for her, but her underwear always gets in the way, and they are not really good looking.
    I understand that she is a minor and you shouldn't publish a nude minor, but at least it should be an optional file.
    Cheers.

  33. Hey there, the mod looks great, Elly and the room are there, however I can not get her to talk to me. No dialog options pop up when I try to talk to her. Any help out there?

    ReplyDelete
  34. hey buddy,
    seriously.

    your elly follower is the best skyrim follower mod i've ever seen by far..

    Please come back to the group and make some more mods!
    we miss you Haishao!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for making this mod tho.. she is my favorite, a little strong cute crazy chicka!

  35. Could we get a mirror download for the armor as well please? The one you have up dose not seem to work. At least not for me.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the mod and for re-uploading it to a few places so people can still use it. I think you'd have a good bit of endorsements if you put this on the nexus, if you care for that type of stuff. Regardless great work and thanks again. God bless.
