This is a TTW Conversion of the "Ties That Bind" follower mod from fallout3 and appears to be 100% working fine (as of 7/8/2014)
Just to clarify what 100% working fine means, it means it behaves the same as the previous conversions of the same mod found on the forum post here... http://taleoftwowastelands.com/content/help-mod-conversion-ties-bind
Meaning it still has no companion wheel, however this version fixes the bug with wait, follow, dismiss comands not working (she no longer follows you when she shouldnt).
Requires the original fallout 3 data (BSA and Sound folder) found here.. http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/19941/?
install the original mod in your fallout nv data folder, then download the replacement esp (attached to this post) and install over the existing files in your fallout nv data folder.
launch the game and enjoy.
remember to endorse the original mod on the fallout 3 nexus if you enjoyed it, and be sure to thank the guys on this page.. http://taleoftwowastelands.com/content/help-mod-conversion-ties-bind for their hard work on converting up to the point where i took over.

Thanks to the following:

credit to the various users who helped make the conversion possible (im not entirely sure who did what so sorry for being vague there). (if you believe you were one of these "various users" please let me know and Ill add your name here).
JazzIsParis has kindly provided a version with the companion wheel functional, I havent tested it myself, but it has been confirmed working. *Note - there has been 1 bug(s) reported on this version* (see attached file marked as: "Ties That Bind: JIP's Version (working companion wheel)")
If there are any issues or bugs please let me know.

[collapsed title=(only applies to users that downloaded prior to the 7/9/2014)]seems the ttw site edits file names if there are more than one of the same name, to fix I have replaced the ESP download with a 7z file download
The changed file name was causing issues with Amanda's voice files and possibly other assets of the mod, sorry for not noticing it right away.[/collapsed]

One issue has been reported, details here http://taleoftwowastelands.com/comment/26086#comment-26086
it appears that using a custom race is the cause for amanda not appearing in the storage room, suggest using a vanilla race until you have made it out of vault 101.
[collapsed title= JIP's version waiting issue]
"unfortunately if you tell her to wait she appears to lose her wheel. Once that happens loading an old save will only
provide a longterm fix if you exit and reload the game before loading it."
