Me too, i would only use it if it was a boring go there, now come here, makes sure to go there, but definetly go over here type of things

After you max out crafting skills and explore the initial area, it gets kind of pointless not to fast travel. But I still use carriages most ofen (nothing is that far from the initial holds).

Gets annoying when you need to turn in a quest at the college but no carriage back! I don't know how many times I've ran the path from Winterhold to Windhelm...

Also never found the little boat that travels from the northern coastal cities on my first playthrough. Makes traveling to and from Dawnstar so much easier.

Ha if only you could tell the driver "Look dude, I'm just going to step inside quick, become archmage and I'll be out in like 5 minutes! You can keep the fare tab running!"

A traveling carriage mod would be great for that (As in a carriage that you find on the road here and there).

Well in books and movies they usually don't show the in-between time of different scenes and just skip around and focus on the good stuff that matters, so same logic there

I can certainly respect anyone who likes immersive playing. However, I do use fast travel just about all the time because my game is prone to frequent crashes due to mods. If my game didn't crash so much then I would probably spend quite a bit more time just wandering about.

I have no problems using carriages, but I do travel on foot/horse to a city first before I start using the carriages. Otherwise I do not use fast travel, with two exceptions:

1) It's late and I need to shut down the game for the night. So I fast travel back home, dump gear, tuck the kids in, and log off.

2) When some stupid quest keeps sending me back and forth across the province for no reason. They're rare, but there are a few double-trip quests that are annoying as hell. "What do you mean I have to go back to Markarth? I just got back from there for your last task!"

If I’m overburdened, I’ll continue to walk to a discovered location, Summon Arvak, fast travel to my nearest house, dump my loot, fast travel back and continue exploring. The other times are usually if I need a short-cut over a mountain range and don’t feel like walking around it, or if I’ve traveled the same route so many times recently that it’s tedious (such as from Lakeview Manor around Lake Ilinalta, because nothing of interest regenerates or respawns in that short a time). But even then I usually fast travel to a location some distance from my destination, and walk from there. It also depends on how much time I have IRL.

Meeting Mercinaries on the road and buying their contracts can lead to some interesting discoveries. So it’s worthwhile to walk and explore if you can.

The problem I have with carriages is that it seems that they don’t work when I’m overburdened or with followers (or sometimes for no apparent reason). I’ve gotten out of the habit of using them. I haven’t tried them after getting Amazing Follower Tweaks, so I may try one again.

That was the record for the largest game world. At only a fraction of the size, LOTRO is the second largest. I play LOTRO and I can't imagine playing without stables and map skills. I think it could easily take an hour riding on a fast horse from one end of the map to the other.

I generally only Fast Travel between towns/playerhomes. I try to avoid fast travel to or from dungeons.

I enjoy exploring too much. everything distracts me on the compass that I forget what I was doing and run off into the woods as usual. when I have diverted too much from said quest I will check the distance and if it is quite great I will fast travel to a location close to where I started wandering.
