Overhauled Version v3.60:

This is the newest update (v3.50). This update added new MCM options and as you have guessed overhauled this mod. You can see the changes in the "Changelog" below !
If you want to use MCM menu in order to customize this mod you have to install MCM mod first.
Go to SkyUI Mod and install it. If you don't want to use SkyUI there is a video here made by Gopher : Gopher Video On MCM

If you don't want to use MCM this mod is still compatible but you will not be able to customize it !
Also now in the newest update there are 2 different files in the as main files, Vanilla and Hearthfires. Use Vanilla if you don't have Hearthfire and use Hearthfire if you do. Don't use both !
Hearthfire Version 2.00:

This version is for player that use Hearthfire and in the same time want to you this mod. It is installed the same way as the other versions. This is a standalone patch and it DOES NOT need the main file. It requires Hearthfire or the game will CTD (crash). There are still a few bugs. Please report bugs if you come across one. Also this version is already extracted so you don't need the extracted version.

Credits goes to Baron Of Hell ! Thank you Baron !

This mod is incompatible with
- Better Villages
- Extended Ivarstead.
- Fast travel timescale fix

No bugs found for now.


v3.60 :
- Fixed an issue with Carriage dialogue when you had less gold than
required for a trip.
- Added an option in the MCM menu to disable fast travel on the Map screen,
this will only effect the games default map screen, if you have a mod that
adjusts the functionality of the map, this may not work, it should work with
all mods that adjust the look of the map (A Quality World Map) and should
work with any mod that adds additional map markers.

v3.50 :

1. Facegen data generated for ship crew

2. Dayspring Canyon now only an option if you have Dawnguard installed with Hearthfire carriages

3. When using the Ships and going to either Dawnstar or Solitude, if you
have a horse it will no longer appear right next to you and sometimes
block your movement. In Dawnstar it'll be on the shore line near where
you spawn, in Solitude it'll be at the top of the stairs when leaving
the dock.

4. The three Ship NPCs, Morg (Solitude), Dalan (Windhelm) and Guthrum
(Dawnstar) will now prefer to sit down on a chair on their respective
ships rather than wonder around, they may still wonder around but it
will be much less likely.

5. Added Icewater Jetty (near Northwatch Keep) to Ship transport but will only be available if Dawnguard is installed

6. On ships once you select your destination you must now sit somewhere on the ship for travel to commence, this can be turned off in the MCM menu so travel happens as soon as you select a destination.

7. Changed how the 'No weight limit' option works to try and make it compatible with other mods. (no guarantees this will work)

8. Removed some debug notifications/messages that were left behind

9. Added a 'Vanilla' only version that strips out all the Hearthfire support.

3.00 :
  • mod overhaul and update
  • added MCM options
  • customizable prices through MCM menu
  • weight customization through MCM menu
  • Sp0rk THANK YOU ! If wasn't you this mod would probably die !Also Sp0rk if you have something to add that I have missed please massage me ;)

2.00 - updated to Heartfire version
1.50 - more carriages
1.00 - first update.

Optional version - No Fast Travel Mode

With this you won't be able to fast travel. If you try to fast travel you will get a massage - "You cannot fast travel from this location." To install it you just extract all the content of the archive.
Important : This optional version does not contains the mod. This is only No Fast Travel Mode.
Also - This was all made by me.

Extracted Version:

You will need the Extarcated Version if you are using the "Unofficial Skyrim Patch".
IMPORTANT : Before using make a backup of your Skyrim files !

Also check my other mod
The Mage Tower 2v


You must contact me and obtain my permission before re-packaging any part of this mod.
