No follower options

A Forum Thread for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

So... I bumped into a kinda of gamebreaking bug. When I go to any follower, ![](http://i.imgur.com/YmsYX7m.jpg "") The follow me option appears, everything is fine and dandy. But as soon they follow me, ![](http://i.imgur.com/YdCyBd9.jpg "") There's no trade, do something or part ways options! What the fuck? I don't have any mods that changes the way that followers work.

    This is a common bug with the base game itself from what I can remember. I'd advise looking into using the Unofficial Skyrim Patch series, it was suggested to me when I first ran into this bug several versions ago and I've been using it ever since. You can find it on the Steam Workshop (I'd advise grabbing it from there to keep it up to date at all times) or over at the Skyrim Nexus.

Most are about missing navmeshes, none of these had anything with missing options. Any ideas?

Well, I know Dawnguard and Dragonborn had some issues with the followers (among other things), and the unofficial patches themselves managed to fix a lot of those problems. I'd still say give the unofficial patches a shot (make sure to nab each one for the appropriate DLC that you have and for Skyrim) and see if that fixes it. The complete logs don't seem to mention it, but this issue did end up being fixed on my end after installing the unofficial patch for the base game itself when I first ran into it.

    I don't know what to tell you at this point, unfortunately. When I ran into this issue, I installed the unofficial patches and haven't had any issues since. The change log histories for each version seems to leave some things out for each unofficial patch from what I've noticed, so I'd still say it's worth testing. If it still continues after that, you may want to consider asking on the Skyrim Nexus.

Also, the Unofficial Patch didn't worked.

    Just get Uthger as your follower from the inn at Whiterun. She is a feisty bitch compared to Lydia.

Wait, the options appear in other saves, but not in the one you're having issues with? Sorry to say dude, but that sounds like you might have a bugged/corrupted save file. There's really not that much that can be done to fix that save, other than starting it over completely.

    Why are these developers so incapable to fix bugs in what could have been a really great game? To me Skyrim really had its chance to be one of the best game ever made, but instead the devs really ruined it with all these silly little bugs.

Never had a single bug with Skyrim, and mine is heavily modded as well.

Really? Mine is heavily modded as well, yet I usually bump into some gamebreaking bugs, sometimes.
