If I'm reading what you wrote correctly, you have edited some of the game's NPCs, they are getting a head/body mismatch, and you think my mod, which does not touch those NPCs, is causing it?
Maybe I misunderstood what is happening. But, if I didn't, think about what is being stated there, from a cause and effect standpoint. Lex parsimoniae. Occam's Razor.
I want to be clear about something. Mods like Followers Can Relax and NPC Clothing Maintainer are good mods, made by great community contributors. We are brothers in code, so to speak. But, the way this game works is, you can't always run every possible mod. Some mods attempt to manipulate the same resources, or manipulate resources other mods use. This is just the nature of modding. It does not mean one mod is good or another mod is bad. It just means you have to make a choice between mods, or figure out a way to get them to play nice together.
NPC Clothing Maintainer will probably always break the Luxury Suite's pool and bed effects. But, using the mods together shouldn't crash the game. If you can live with that, then you don't have to choose between the two. Followers Can Relax is a useful mod, but because of what it tries to accomplish and the way it is being done, one must use it wisely. Remember, it changes a vanilla quest and vanilla behavior. That is its entire purpose. Its purpose is not location specific, so its purpose is going to exist whether or not the Luxury Suite (or any other abode mod) is installed. Making the mistake of leaving a bunch of followers sandboxing somewhere and then uninstalling the mod or upgrading an NPC (such as a Suite NPC) while Followers Can Relax was controlling that NPC has nothing to do with any mod other than Followers Can Relax. And heck, I never even looked at his mod. My wife used it a couple weeks ago, but doesn't use it now. For all I know, he may have adjusted his mod to avoid such traps.
CBBE vs. UNP.
This isn't the place for a discussion as to which is better. And I don't mean this thread, I mean this web site. The Nexus mods will drop the hammer on us so fast it won't be funny. So, I will only say this. I like UNP, because I personally feel it looks more like a real woman. CherryHotaling's body mod looks more like a cartoon. CBBE falls somewhere in between. Different strokes for different folks. I'm just glad Dimon, Caliente and Cherry took the time to share their work so we aren't left looking at funky-shaped Barbie dolls.
I will say this about CBBE. In my humble opinion, what MAK07 has done with the lower body is such a radical improvement, I would like to see what it is like in my game. I still think UNP looks more real, but things don't have to look real to look good. This guy blew past me on the adult top 100 list and I don't care. He deserves the credit he is getting.
The reason I have a UNP specific clothing option add-on is not because I prefer UNP over anything else. It is because the outfit maker (Motseer) volunteered to let me include it. I'd be dumb to turn him down. It's a cool option for UNP users. If some CBBE armor maker shows up and volunteers to have me include their cool outfit, I'll likely be doing that as well.
To be honest, I don't think your increased followers mod conflicts with my mod in any way. Maybe something could go wrong if you had a bunch of Suite girls following at the same time and then uninstalled your mod or I upgraded the Suite girls and altered a reference (something I probably will not do going forward), but that is going to happen with any followers, not just the Suite girls.
