Ariana Trudeaux - File Description  

- The majority of requests were for an archer, so I made Ariana an archer/ranger/druid type. She only knows one spell for healing.

- Voiced dialogue. Heavily tweaked some in-game voice-overs to fit the story.

- Branch tree dialogue. Different choices show different parts of Ariana's personality.

-Companion share thanks to Reznod's companion share mod. After changing her inventory, tell her "Ok you can put your armor on." to have her equip what's in her inventory.

- Ariana will lose battle confidence when she's not around the player. If your fame is at a minimum level you can boost her confidence by telling her "You're too good."

- Romance. Her disposition to the player will show up in a few dialogue options that will change when it gets higher. If its high enough she will give you different sentimental tokens.

- If you own a home in Cheydinhal and Ariana is in your party you can ask her to travel there and wait for you.

- When Ariana is not following she will eat, read, forage (only in good weather), grind up ingredients, wander, talk and sleep.

- Made her essential, only can knock her out. If you lose her, she'll try to find you.

- There are a few improvements in this mod over the old Elven Mages Companions and Morrowind Mage. Mainly simpler scripting, more dialogue, more humor, more romance. And ofcourse this time we have female companions, with voiced dialogue.

Damn sure ain't bad. BUT, can it be true that if you attack people in sneak mode she get's *****ed? Last night I got attacked when sneaking, so of course, I stroke back. Then she yelled something like "How could you do that?" and I lost 7 in "friendship".

Just add natural faces to pluck her eyebrows! Good mod and she is a useful sidekick as a ranger (I don't like any help in close quarter battle). Shame about the over full (big) lips, she looks like she has been punched in the mouth... A must have mod though!

Every horse I've owned or borrowed has been eaten by beasties at some point. No wonder the unicorn ran away when I dismounted. I'm looking forward to having a companion with a bit more brains...will let you know. stick out tongue

Ok, I've downloaded and installed her. I can find her in the Arena. Two things I've observed: One, in "real life" she's not quite as endowed as she appears in the screenshots. :-) Not a "big" deal, per se', but the second item is kind-of not so good. Whether or not I select "companion share" from the menu, when I select "ok you can put your armor on now - the armor goes away. It doesn't even show up in her inventory anymore after that.

Did I just find a bug? :-)

A little further experimenting, and I've discovered that her leggings and boots also just disappear from her and her inventory when this happens. Has anyone else noticed this, and does anyone know a way to fix it?

Without armor, she's going to get knocked out a lot more easily. :-) (Actually, I'd prefer if she wasn't unkillable; kinda takes some of the pressure off - if she can't die, you don't worry about protecting her... But that's a side issue. smile )

Forgot to mention that her gauntlets seem to survive, but the other items I mentioned definitely seem to disappear for no reason.

BTW, has anyone else noticed that when she reads a book, a lot (most) of the time, the book is turned around so it's facing the wrong way (she's reading the back of the book)? Or is this something unique to me...? :-)

Well, she's not perfect, but she helps out with the beasties when things are hectic, and she gives me strawberries !
She does seem to take off her kit at the slightest opportunity, but at least she's not an orc.
Oh yeah, my current horse is still alive and kicking, thanks to my new girlfriend too, so despite the tiny niggles, I'm happy. Thanks to the people who make this kind of stuff freely available, I look forward to Oblivion staying fresh for quite a time yet. cool

Well, it wasn't so much a ***** as just a noticing of something that's a bit odd. I figure if no one tells anyone about it, it won't get fixed. :-)

I have noticed that this disappearing act only seems to happen so far with her original equipment. If you give her new boots, armor, leggings, etc., then that stuff seems to stay around and she'll happily re-equip it. Not sure why it's only her original gear that vanishes like that. So now I have her better protected, but she doesn't look as good in the heavy armor as she does in her original stuff. *grin*

Is there a way to edit the mod so that I can turn off the "indescructable" flag if I want to? You tend to be a bit more careful when your companion *can* die. :-) Maybe give her a respawn time so that you can eventually get her back or something like that. smile

Is the editor used for these things a third-party download, or does it come with the game and I just haven't stumbled onto it yet? (Have only had the game for 3 days now, so I'm still trying to figure everything out. smile )

For whatever it's worth, I stumbled onto a fixed version of her, just for the ranger version, not the newer paladin version that Blocky added for this release. It's at http://www.tessource.net/files/cache/3992.html (would be nice if it got added here as well :-) ) and the description looks like he addressed some issues I've reported here as well as doing a few other things.

Just figured I'd mention it since I'm reporting a problem here, since it looks like the problem might be corrected (at least partially) with the above link. When I report a problem, I like to also post possible solutions when I stumble upon them. I'm just weird that way. :-)

Get yourself a copy of something like WinRAR and it will let you extract the file within the .rar archive - just like Winzip lets you extract files from a .zip archive.

Put the .esp file into your Oblivion/Data directory, then start the game, click on Data Files, and check the file name you just added. Then start the game and she'll be waiting for you inside. :-)

To extract the ESP files from the RAR file, you can use the wonderfully free and full featured IZArc. It's not Open Source, but it's still free, just about as good as WinZip, and may support more archive formats.

For those that don't know, RAR is a file archive sort of like ZIP is. You need a special program to browse what's inside of it. WinRAR is the most popular, but it's comercial, and you have to pay for it.

(I attempted to use standard BB Code for the links in this post, I really won't know if it works untill I have already submitted it)

This mod kinda sucks, It's only "hot" cause shes a girl. The commands are disorganized and there are lots of bugs. I spent a lot of gold buying good armor for this ***** and they disapear. And yes I told her to put it on again, I looked in her inventory and the armor was completly gone. I recommend Valeria - Female Companion instead, its much better then this one.

I read the notes yet I don't see the option that is supposed to say: "You're too good." Also is the way to unlock more dialogue options of her based on gaining more levels for the Main Character> Just asking since i'm in a bit of a confusion ball here since i'm not really sure when the chance to have more dialogue choices for her but the companion addition is ABSOLUTELY GRAND overall indeed! I'm already loving it! I understand well the ones who play the Lone Wolf path for I support it greatly but having company is great at other times as well and this mod fits the ticket perfectly! XD Thanks so much for a great companion addition Blockyhead!! I hope there will be more options for the romance for this great companion to expand soon! XD

@ #49: It seems you need to use the companion share option which opens up a shop like menu but this menu has been made so that you can equip what armor and weapons you want to equip on Ariana so move your desired selection of of armor, weapons and other desirable things into Ariana's inventory which is on the right tab where as you're inventory is shown on the left tab so you may as well buy a set of desirable equipment for her when you get enough Septims for it. smile Yet it seems that the greaves for some reason isn't visible yet this may be a bug that MAY be fixed in a new version hopefully but I think it's still, there, just not physically shown since this may be a small bug but at least it isn't too major. When you get the desired equipment in her inventory and exit the equipment transference she will embarrassingly automatically take of all her equipment since I figured this is to make sure that the armor she had on previously doesn't get mixed up and and that way she will use the armor solely in her inventory so when you done transferring the desired equipment to her inventory choose the "Ok you can put you're armor on." then she wil equip the equipment that was equipped on her in the transferrence of equipment menu. Hope this helps you out norbivar. smile

Hmm... I think I may now understand the greaves bug it seems that removing the Pit Cuirass and replacing it with another armor or other clothes fixes the missing greaves problem since it seems that the Pit Cuirass has a problem which disallows greaves to show but replace it with other armor and then removing it seems to fix the problem. smile Of course you don't have to equip armor of course but it would be more protective than clothing but I guess that is obvious to know but i'd just thought i'd remind anyone who was unaware of such things. smile Again, make sure you remove the Pit Cuirass by putting it in your Main Character's inventroy then you can just dump it then since it has very little value. smile I know this because I recently tested it and it seems to have worked.

@ OblivionIV: You can find her behind the outer arena walls in the Imperial City and as the readme says you will find her near the two hand-to-hand sparring fighters. smile
