Hi

 

I have little to no experience on CK but I managed to make some custom followers a long time ago. I often update them myself by changing their equipment, hair, skin, eyes etc etc. Never ran into much problem doing so. But this time, I picked 2 follower Ani and Ani2 which look almost the same and I set Ani.esp as active and changed her and Ani2s skin color. Pressed ok, saved and closed ck. Went back to the game, and to my surprise Ani was replaced by Ani2, Same equipment as Ani, same place but apperance of Ani2 and the original Ani was nowhere to be found. I clicked on this new Ani2 and it came from Ani.esp......

 

Then I went back to CK again, and saw a new editor ID called AniDUPLICATE003. The original Ani now had a count 0 and users 0.

 

I cant seem to understand what went wrong and how did i end up with a completely different duplicate. i tried clicking delete on the duplicate but nothing happened.

 

So I wantid to know how do I get rid of this auto duplicate and make my original NPCs count 1 and user 1 again? 

 

Thanks, appreciate any help.

    Have you all seen my keys? I think they are here somewhere.

You can right click on the duplicate and click view uses, and then add your original actor in all those spots then right click your duplicate again and click delete. Save and reload. Presto.

Thx for reply. By add do you mean redeploy the original in the world map window? because i cant seem to interact inside the actual use info window, also even if i remove the relation info from the duplicate, its still not unique when i try to put the same in original

Ok so I deleted the duplicate, but in the game duplicate still remains, and it wasnt saved at all after this incident that the duplicate might get "baked" inside. if i redeploy the original that puts a brand new npc
