Replaces the carriages in the cities with real ridable carriages like in the game's intro.

You can ride to any of the hold capitals, get out along the way, and your follower will even ride along with you. You can also ask to skip directly to the destination.

This is a work in progress, and also illustrates some of the issues with the carriages (and why they didn't ship in the real game).

1. MAJOR - if you load a save with a carriage in the loaded area, the carriage will not work - the horse will move but the carriage won't. As far as I can tell, this is a limitation of the code that attaches the horse, riders and carriage together. I haven't found a workaround.

2. The carriage routes need work to help the carriage avoid rocks and other obstacles, which can cause the carriage to bounce around wildly. Currently it relies mainly on the existing road navmesh, which works fine overall.

I'd welcome any feedback on specific spots where the carriage runs into problems.

Thanks and enjoy!

* Latest update should fix the issue with saves where you see overlapping carriages.
* If you save the game with the plugin loaded, and then uninstall the plugin, the carriages may no longer work. If this happens, your best bet is to go back to a save prior to loading the plugin. If you really want to keep playing, and are willing to live with the carts looking weird, this should get the carts at least functional again:

Awsome Mod ! ! ! , ive never made requests on this site but i have 2 small problems..1 Is there a way you can go into 3rd person view (so you dont have to enter the cheat code in the console) and 2 Can you make Lydia or a Housecarl (helper) not stand in front of the carage and command her to sit in the carage then tell the driver?

Other than that, this is great

I too have the issues with uninstalling this mod after saving with it active. I find that until I start a new game (I'm moderately far and my last save is too far back for it to be viable), installing Sollar's "ScenicCarriages" mod works as a temporary fix for the bug that screws up the appearances of the carriages.

Just a suggestion but maybe you should look at the code for the begining of the game. Maybe that would give you some clues on how to make this mod work properly. I would suggest scripting it to ride along the rodes as well. Personaly I think this is a great idea and I would download it if everyone were not having so many problems with it.

Got to the point that I can't start a new game because the carriages try to off road it to Helgen, they either don't make it or in the best case get there after the gates have closed. This is after disabling the mod as well. God. Damn. It.
