Known Issues

Your character might react to your companion as he (your companion) would be a Dogmeat. That's becuse Dogmeat alias was used to make him follow you.

(Not Verified) Sometimes when using a settler as a companion might make him scream as he would be hurt.

If you will have any issues with your companions created that way, tell me what are those and how you got them, and i will write them down here and try to find solutions for them.
