Load Order

This is only necessary if you are not using the All-In-One fomod installer, however we recommend using that whenever possible. As a general rule, everything should overwrite Kaidan 2.0 and replacers should be at the very end. We have listed outdated patches, these should not be in your load order. There are some mods where the load order is not important as they do not overwrite anything (except Kaidan 2.1.1), these are marked with an asterisk (*).

Fertility Mode Integration (this is being replaced by a standalone pregnancy/family framework for Kaidan)
Kaineedy (being replaced by an entire suite of survival mod integrations)
Kaidan – Immersive Lap Sitting (included in Immersive Features)
Kaidan Immersive Features Lux Patch (the Lux patch in the fomod is for both EE and IF)


We have a helpful list of console commands if for any reason you cannot progress any of Kaidan’s quests. This list DOES contain spoilers, so use only in a last resort.
