Description
NEW UPDATE: I have created a new version of this mod, that eliminates the compatibility problems with DLC and other mod followers, subscribe to it here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=214745568

PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This adds map markers to any follower that is on the list. The markers act just like quest markers.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Talk to any housecarl or follower listed, and click "Get map marker" this will add a quest to the miscellaneous section
of your journal, you can toggle it on and off from here. You can do this while they are your follower or when they arent.
If you want to delete the map marker all together you will have to un-tick the mod from the data section on the launcher.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you wish to get a map marker on a follower without talking to them, you will need to open up the console and type

setstage "(followersname)mapmarker" 0

e.g setstage lydiamapmarker 0
setstage aelamapmarker 0

!!!!!!IMPORTANT!!!!!!!-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The followers below have been tested using a new save game and also a save game that has almost completed everything.
All followers conversation can change during quests and the "Get map marker" option might not appear if you have
completed a certain stage of conversation. Cicero is a good example, he will not show the "Get map marker" option
once the Dark Brotherhood quests are over.

!!!!!!IMPORTANT!!!!!!!-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Common Questions:

Q.The follower I want marked doesnt have a 'Get Map Marker' option?
A.There can be a few reasons why, you either havent finished a quest or havent progressed further enough into the character's dialogue for it to be shown, the follower for some reason doesnt like the dialogue option in the first place, try using the 'setstage (followersname)mapmarker 0' command, or you are using another mod that changes follower dialogue.

Q.I tried using the command you said, but nothing happends!?
A. This could mean three things, either you typed it wrong (check this description), the follower doesnt actually exist in the world currently for the command to be placed which means you need to progress furthur into the character's plot, or the follower currently doesnt work, and if thats the case, its up to me to sort it out!

Q.Why dont you make a spell version of this mod?
A. I would if I knew how to, but I still like the idea of being able to toggle as many followers you want, aswell as having multiple toggled markers at once.

Q. When will you make a SkyUI MCM?
A. When I can figure out how to! Im very new to scripting and modding.

I did reinstall from the Nexis site - not Steam and it NOW (the beacon at least) seems to working. In order to accomplish this, I went back six (6) saves and loaded an older save and did did what I had done before). The Riverwood Claw quest. Now it seems to be working however it appears I only have one beacon? Is that the way it was meant to work? (For all you other readers, you have to literally "steal" the beacon book and the beacon itself from the 2nd floor of Riverwoord traders without anyone seeing you.

From this point on, my follower now has my (one and only?) beacon. Are there more beacons available in case I get a horse and a new follower?

Thanks~

The beacon isnt limited to the followers list above, it can be used with any follower. The beacon is the 'strangely shaped thing' ;) in the riverwood trader, the moment you pick it up, it will activate the quest. The beacon is a 'misc' object. It looks like this in your inventory http://i.imgur.com/A7sIvUV.jpg

The fact you cannot find it is a little strange. The quest marker will always follow the beacon, if you cannot see the marker, then it is most likely in your inventory. If you cannot find it still, I would reccomend reinstalling, otherwise I have no clue. I haven't seen or heard of this issue. Let me know if you find it, if not ill try do some troubleshooting for you! :D

Hi Again, annihilatt0r. I hate to ask again, but why is this not working for me? I have several choices of followers (none are in your list, some are 3rd part mods). I found the book on Beacons on the 2md floor of the Riverwind trader's. Next to it was a strangely shaped thing that said "beacon" so I picked it and got a message that I had activated the Beacon part of the follower mod. So I went back down and talker to my follower again. I asked her to open her inventory (so I could add the beacon I Just picked up from upstairs). I made SURE that I have the miscellaneous quest clicked and also the Beacon follower quest marked on (with the diamond shape in the center). But I have no beacon in my inventory to give her? I tried giving her the book, that didn't work. I searched my entire inventory. No beacon. What am I doing wrong. Were is the beacon? Where can I find it once I have taken it ans - is there just one beacon? Where is it? How to I give what I cannot find to my follower? Help?

You've been a great help. Many thanks.
annihilatt0r  [author] Mar 6 @ 10:26pm 
Well, all the mod is doing is running a quest and adding dialouge so not too high! I havent really had trouble ever with load order, nor do I know much about it. So I guess some playing around should work! Hope I have been of help :D
ÐaNgeRis Mar 6 @ 9:23pm 
Ok, thanks. I do mine manually then check with LOOT but the order seems wrong. What load order do you recommend? (Thanks, last question!) :)
annihilatt0r  [author] Mar 6 @ 9:21pm 
FOMOD is purely for activating it the mod through the Nexus Mod Manager (which I highly reccomend, it does everything for you). So you dont need to put that in. Just purely the BSA and ESP files from the FMM folder, and all DLC folders.
