I just adopted Sofie from Windhelm, and got her to move in to Lakeview Manor where my other adopted kid Lucia is.
As they were both wearing red, I wanted to give them new clothes in order to differentiate them better. Lucia had no problem receiving a new dress. But when I tried giving Sofie a gift too, I see every gift-able item in my inventory is greyed out. Choosing any of those items regardless causes a message to appear in the top left of my screen: "The item is too heavy to carry." This happens even if I try to give a Honey Nut Treat which has a carry weight of just 0.1!
Any idea why this is happening, and what I can do to fix it? I'm on PC, all DLCs and official patches installed, no mods.
Sofie has a bug with her inventory and she ends up full of baskets the bug and fix is on her page click the show button to the right of bugs, but to save time the fix is to open the console click Sofia and use the command removeallitems.
Edit - Oh you should probably have a spare dress ready don't want her to catch cold.
The basket bug can happen on any system but i adopted Sofie and Lucia on the PS3 and have had no problems with them (i did buy all Sofie's items first), on another save i adopted Runa Fair-Shield and no problems (didn't play much on that save after though). If you check the Adoption page you can see all the kids and click the links for them to see any bugs and on what systems you might get them.
Two of us have run into this on the PS3 (Skyrim Legendary Edition). We both bought all of the flowers Sofie had with her when talking with her in Windhelm. We then adopted her and she headed to Lakeview Manor. When we got back, tried giving her a gift and found everything is too heavy and she then says to stop teasing her.
Too many things accomplished since adopting her so do NOT want to go back and do thema ll over again. Is there ANY way to fix this bug on a PS3 or will we just nver be able to give her a gift (like we can with Alesan)?
Here is what I did (for PS3): I saved just before adopting her, then I bought all her flowers, however no baskets appeared. I then reloaded the save several times and even left for a new area (Markarth). After a few times when I asked what she had for sale, some 220 baskets appeared in her inventory. I bought all of them. After this I adopted her and I was able to give her a dress.
So basically buy all her stuff and reload until a bunch of baskets appear and buy all of them.
So it’s been like 15 min of me reloading and trying for baskets but they won’t appear. Some forms are saying that the merchant perk is needed but they’re like from 2014 or something. So I’m just going to give up and get another kid probs.
