FOB - Companion Helper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.6.8
by: FlatBadger [More]
FOB is a companion mod to prevent accidental companion interaction.

Ever clicked to loot something only to find your companion conversation starting because they have leapt in front of you to grab all your attention? Annoying isn't it? (Well, I find it annoying).
  • Prevents any companion interactions from happening
  • Toggle the original functionality or toggle your companion using keybindings
  • Ignore flying insects when Mirri is out, or only allow ones that don't decrease rapport
  • Prevent criminal interactions when Bastian or Isobel is out
  • When you move the reticle over a companion, nothing will happen. Click the action button over a companion, nothing will happen. Bliss.
  • Stop losing Rapport with Bastian when you craft something with cheese in it. FOB will warn you and cancel the crafting of that item. Works with DailyProvisioning too.
  • Alternate summoning message frame
  • Prevent entry to Outlaw's Refuges when Isobel is out
  • Prevent fishing when Ember is out
Now, if I could only get them to shut up too...

Compatible with DailyProvisioning and RuEso (as of V2.3.0)

Hi Flatbadger! I have been looking for a mod that will prevent me from accidentally interacting with insects while Mirri is active. I saw there had been problems with that aspect of this mod in earlier posts so I wanted to ask if that had been fixed?

I may dig deeper as to what causes it but I thought I'd see if anyone has the same issue.

Thanks!
It's a known issue I'm struggling with. It works intermittently as it's trying to cancel an in-world event inside an update loop and sometimes the event just gets through.
Got it. Best of luck I know those things can be frustrating to solve.
I'll wait for the update and try to keep my mitts off the bugs while Mirri is around

I use your addon since a few times and it works great to manage unwanted interactions with companions.
But som others companions blocking features don't work in gamepad mode (block torchbug with Mirri, cheese message for Bastian).
Preventing criminal interactions seams to work as intended (tested with Bastian).
Didn't test with Isobel and Ember.

Only the bug one is annoying as it you can grab them by accident often. I tried setting it to ignore all bugs (not just Mirri) but nothing changed.

Thank you very much for trying to fix this issue.
That's so frustrating - it was working for bugs and outlaw's refuge for me. To be honest, I forgot anout dark brotherhood, so don't go trying that just yet as it won't work ... I will keep digging.

OK - I have no idea why this is has just happened by i now CAN reproduce at least some of this. I genuinely could not do that earlier

I have reworked the interaction code and hopefully this will solve the problem. I'd be grateful for any feedback on this, and thanks for your patience.

The changes are in v2.6.7

I'll get Isobel today and test her interactions (outlaw refuges) but again, don't worry too much about it, it appears to be a "me" problem.

Thank you for taking the time to trying to figure it out!

Edit:I just got Isobel and same issue shows up, the prompt for entering the refuge does not show up but it still allows me to enter it, losing rapport.

Hi

Is there any chance you could make the prevent companion interaction feature optional within the settings, please, rather than just a constant toggled feature? As a gamepad user I find it a little awkward to have to manage keybinds for those occasions that I need to talk to my companions to update their skills/gear, and I'm actually already using the IsJusta Disable Actions While Moving addon which prevents me from interacting with NPCs unless I stop moving for a set number of seconds, avoiding the need to enable/reenable an addon, which is ideal for gamepad mode, however your addon offers features to prevent Rep loss from doing silly things like harvesting torchbugs which I do want to use.

Thanks.

Sorry for having such a weird problem.
I'll try and get some time over the weekend to look into this more. I did refactor some code in the last release, but it shouldn't be affecting anything. I can always try changing that part back to see if it helps.

edit:
I have managed to reproduce the bait issue, although I'm going to leave that for now as I think it serves as a reminder that the addon is doing something. I still can't reproduce your other issue though, are you absolutely certain you've tested this addon with ALL other addons and libs disabled (other than the 3 FOB relies on)?

In the meantime, I've released the code reversion I mentioned above.
