Character Followers… again

Alicia

So recently, I took down my character followers. I did it quietly, and without complaint, but apparently some other folks decided to make a big announcement about it. Reason was, I was pretty unhappy with how often they were getting downloaded just so people could take their textures, or other unique assets.

So I took them down, and had a good think about what to do regarding the matter, and originally I was just gonna leave them offline and that was gonna be that, but then I figured I could do something much better.

Sinestra

Instead of taking them permanently offline, I’ve begun updating them all to their current versions. They’re no longer packaged into bsa files, which makes it much easier for people to get any custom assets out of them they might want, and any follower with unique textures will also have a separate download specifically for their related texture pack, so you don’t need to go to the trouble of downloading the whole follower. They will come with low res textures as default, with optional high res ones in the same archive.

Breezy

So over the next few weeks, they’ll be coming back one by one, as I update them with their relevant high poly heads, and I’ll also be adding some (not all, there are a couple I don’t want out in the wilds) of my newer characters as well. The only exception is Nala, who I don’t actually have on my PC any more, since I deleted her. I do have a backup of the old follower files sitting on here though, so if there’s demand for her, I can put her back up.

Also, the character followers page has been updated as well, since I’ve chosen a new presentation format for it, and the mods are now being hosted on my main modding domain.

Alicia: Download Follower | Download Textures
Sinestra: Download Follower | Download Textures
Breezy: Download Follower | Download Textures

Enjoy your updates!

Halo.

    “unhappy with how often they were getting downloaded” –

    Sorry…
    20 of those downloads may have been me, I downloaded them, then my computer blew up, downloaded them again, then my Skyrim wasn’t working, downloaded them again, then changed their body types, didn’t like it so I downloaded them again, uninstalled skyrim to make room for other games, but ended reinstalling skyrim was I downloaded them again.. etc.

    You get the idea.

      I think you took that a bit out of context. I said with how often they were being downloaded for reasons other than to be used as a follower. I have no problem with people downloading as many times as they like.

        Apologies, English isn’t my first language to begin with. >3<

    Alicia has been updated ? Sweet, she’s a permanent follower on my game, along with Bee, they are by far my favorite followers and I always have them running around with me… ;)

    I was personally use the texture of Breezy.
    Because,I wanted to make a nice character like Breezy.
    I uploaded character photos in my blog,without your permission…
    I’m sure my actions have made you uncomfortable.
    I’m really sorry:,-(

      The textures are there for everyone to use now, so feel free.

    Have they been updated or are they the same as before?

    • Halofarm January 9, 2015 1:33 am  Reply

      It says right there in the post that they’ve been updated.

    the Frozen Hearth in no Morthal

    • Halofarm January 10, 2015 1:54 am  Reply

      I realised it said that after I uploaded. I think it’s the Moorside Inn in Morthal. Whichever one is in Morthal.

    I’ve been using your awesome characters for years now and I even have several of my own personal creations based upon your work but I would never think to post something like that without permission. Thank you for sharing and please don’t ever stop creating more!!

    halo, what body types do anika/Erika, Alicia, sinestra, and breezy use and what requirements do I need to use them?

    • Halofarm January 26, 2015 7:17 pm  Reply

      All of them except Anya use UNPCM. UNPCM is here on the blog, and the requirements are a UNP compatible texture. Anya’s body is custom, and has no weight slider. It was made just for her, and has 0 support for other outfits. I would recommend using 7Base if you want to have something with a similar look.

    So by the looks of things, Umbra and Nim are lost forever as followers? I had great fun with them in my game, but lost the files, among everything else, due to a reformat a very nasty virus caused.

    • Halofarm January 29, 2015 9:53 am  Reply

      No, they’ll be updated and re-released soon (but I’m very busy at the moment so it’ll take a while) though both have changed a lot, so I may offer new and legacy versions.

    I love your mods, Halo, though I wish more support was given to the UNPCM body aside from your own work, it’s the best body in my own opinion.

    However, I’ve got a major question. I just noticed the guy who asked you if he could release the Argonian Hybrid Race he made using Breezy’s textures, and you saying you planned on releasing said race yourself. Is that still planned? Because I’d love to use it, I’ve been wanting to roleplay a run through with a dragonic hybrid, and the scale textures are perfect for what I’ve envisioned.

    • Halofarm February 2, 2015 10:18 am  Reply

      What I plan to do and what I actually have time to do are often 2 different things. I do still plan to do it, but who knows when.

    Thanks for putting your followers back up, Halo. They look awesome. I only found your site recently, so I would have missed out on being able to use them in my game, otherwise. On a similar note, I was browing your galleries and noticed this character:

    http://screenshot.dysintropi.me/index.php/Skyrim/Empt

    I was wondering if she was still available or whatnot, since I didn’t see any listings or info when I checked briefly and I rather like her. Sorry if this is a question with an obvious answer somewhere that I just missed.

    • Halofarm February 8, 2015 9:47 am  Reply

      She never was and never will be available. She’s just Lilim with different eyes and makeup, and there are already six versions of Lilim out there. They don’t need another one. Lilim can be found on my main Skyrim mods page, as opposed to character followers.

      • ChaosStar February 8, 2015 7:33 pm  Reply

        Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I belatedly noticed after I asked that a couple of the Lilim variations looked pretty similar in some of the screens and thought they might be related in some way. Either way, I likes. Very cool. Your characters are all very unique and distinctive compared to most of the stuff floating around on the nexus and elsewhere.

    Hey halo, how are you today ? Let me ask you something, or I can beg too, is it possible for you to upload Sinestra’s body texture (4K uncompressed diffuse) without the tattoos ? If it’s not possible for you to upload here on your site, can you send it to me by email, niebaum2014@gmail.com ?

    • Halofarm March 18, 2015 7:22 pm  Reply

      No, because it doesn’t exist without.

  12. niebaum March 18, 2015 9:46 am  Reply

    Darn it, I forgot, the normal map is needed too, the diffuse and normal map 4K uncompressed, sorry for the double post !

    Absolutely love these followers. Alicia is by far my favorite!

    Where can I find the followers?

    • Halofarm May 4, 2015 9:41 am  Reply

      Pretty sure it tells you in the readme for each follower.

      If I recall, Alicia is at the inn in Morthal, Sinestra is in the Drunken Hunstman in Whiterun. I don’t remember where Breezy is though. Maybe the Dragon Bridge inn?

    Hello! you say that the textures are free to use? I was making a follower and wanted to use Alicia’s body textures as a base. Just the furry parts… :)

    • Halofarm May 5, 2015 9:46 am  Reply

      That’s why they’re a separate download.

  16. Halofarm June 24, 2015 5:18 pm  Reply

    Alicia was made in Oblivion, before Sheela, using the same race mod. We also had our followers shared with one another, but good job there. Not to mention, if you want to harp on about piracy, the only thing I took from that mod was the basic shape of the face markings, which I redrew, the rest is my own work. On top of that, in case you hadn’t realised, the follower is available publicly, with her assets available separately for those who want them.

  17. Halofarm June 24, 2015 5:20 pm  Reply

    I think you mean the CK, and yeah she’s bald, because I didn’t include her hair. Also, no, just really no. You want someone to make Sheela, ask tetro.

    Hello, Halofarm. Can you put Nala back up?

    • Halofarm September 24, 2015 2:08 pm  Reply

      Sorry, but I can’t. I removed her download, and I don’t have her files on my hard drive any more.

    Would a Alicia character preset be possible or nah?

    • Halofarm October 5, 2015 7:48 am  Reply

      Not possible. I would be willing to share, but I’m afraid I can’t port her current head to any existing meshes to be able to release it (or more like I’m way too lazy because it would be tedious and she wouldn’t look as good).

  20. Halofarm May 23, 2016 8:12 am  Reply

    Alicia doesn’t look like a child. My choice of hair or voice for MY character are not up for question or debate. I think you need to stop leaving comments on my blog. They are no longer welcome.

  21. tetrodoxin May 23, 2016 12:37 pm  Reply

    Please stop harassing Halo with this bullshit. It’s his own character, and if anything, I (back then) was inspired by Halo/HV/Eiries characters to make Sheela.

    Respect the authors design decisions.
