    I've been having a bit of fun with the Dovagolt mod, and have been wondering...if that can be accomplished, is there some mod out there that can be moved from a laptop to XBox to marry Serana via USB! Have more"control" over what they wear?

    Dovahgolt uses existing assets and console commands in order to create something new.

    You can easily equip an NPC with different gear using the EquipItem command, but they almost always swap back to their original gear.

    Dovahgolt has no modifications to the game, and only uses console commands to delete walls (console command: MarkForDelete), and then uses other commands to spawn static items (commands: PlaceAtMe, SetPos, and SetAngle).
    It is all relatively simple when you look at it piece by piece, but you cannot edit scripts on the console version of the game.
    This is because you are unable to run unsigned code on the system, and the only way to move a PC style mod to an Xbox 360 (retail version) would be to have the completely nonexistent LIVE file resigner.



    To put it simply:
    No.

    I've found NPC'S will keep the gear I make on, as long as it's better than what they had. Serana keeps her Enchanted Forsworn gear on, as did Lydia and the Sword Maiden. Although they would "change" when I would depart from them, then change gear when told to follow.

    Thanks for the info about the "why" as far as Serana. Oh well, just have to be happy how she is I guess, lol.

    My RGH Xbox runs PC mods ;) Not impossible, just got to know where to go to get one or how to mod one yourself.

    As for this, I can make her marriable for you. I'd need your save, use Horizon to save it somewhere and email it to me. I'll PM you my email. I can't promise I can change her base outfit (As that's not so easy to do, but I can definitely attempt) but I'm 99% sure I can get her to marry you with a few simple addfac commands and the like. Although she'll have generic dialogue, anything she says relating to marriage will be generic and not in her voice, just the generic voice of the female-whatever race she is.
    Just offering to in case you want, although you should keep a copy of the original save in case you don't like the dialogue.

    Considering that's NOT a retail 360, you still are unable to marry Serana, and I really don't consider the character switching to generic dialogue to be marriage of the character.

    So Serana's mode of speech would differ? Her tone, how she'll at times enjoy the places we enter, saying she's glad I'm with her?

    As far as her Forsworn gear, I just want to cut off most of the front and back "flaps". They look really tacky.

    "Sigh", I've put my Amulet's of Mara in a safe, knowing there's no point, at least as far as Serana.

    "I" could run a mod that gives her non-generic dialogue on marriage, but he couldn't since his is a retail thus it cannot play xma files that are not signed. The best a retail could do is marriage with generic dialogue, but an RGH can do much more.

    Yes, I know what an RGH is.


    I said clearly in my first post in this topic:

    Yes, you can add Serana to a faction, but it is nowhere near the same thing as having everything actually work the way it should with that character's dialogue.
    Why do it if it changes the dialogue, and then breaks immersion if the whole point of this is for immersion?

    It would be different if they just merely cut out that part of the character, but it remained within the game files, but that is not the case.
    I do know that some people on the Nexus were able to piece together bits of existing dialogue, and made it work, but that is not possible on a RETAIL Xbox 360.

    There is a lot in the files that weren't made active, or activated (an assassination of Elsif).

    As far as tweaking this so Serana will marry? I'm not sure unless it's going to follow the "standard" dialogue, or it'll kind of "feel" forced. For me using an exploit is one thing, and if I was on a PC, it might be different, but for now, I think I'll more or less wait.

    Yeh, it's "just" a game, yet still....

    If I upload my save could someone please make her a marriage option. Thanks. Also there's a thing you can do to make someone who is married to you and a follower wear whatever you like or even nothing. This is not a mod and can be done on xbox.
    P.S Would her follower things that she says still be her unique ones?
