Description
This mod adds toggleable miscellaneous quests with map and compass markers for the companions you want. This mod was created in the early days of Fallout 4, and there are now other ways to accomplish what this mod does (Bethesda basically implemented the mod in their Vault-Tec Workshop DLC). It does however still work as it should! It uses the console to add the quests to your quest log. This only has to be done once, after that the quest can be toggled freely.

THE CONSOLE MENU OR BAT FILE ONLY HAS TO BE USED ONCE, AFTER THAT THE QUEST STAYS UNTIL YOUR MOVE IT.


How to use the mod
1. Make sure the mod is installed, the .esp is enabled and that the correct batch files are in your Data folder.
2. Launch the game, open up the console and use to console menu to start the quest you want. This only has to be done once.

    You can also write the bat command for the companions you want.

    These are the available batch commands:
    bat trackAll - Adds/removes tracking quests for all companions.
    bat trackCait - Adds/removes tracking quest for Cait.
    bat trackCodsworth - Adds/removes tracking quest for Codsworth.
    bat trackCurie - Adds/removes tracking quest for Curie.
    bat trackDanse - Adds/removes tracking quest for Danse.
    bat trackDeacon - Adds/removes tracking quest for Deacon.
    bat trackDogmeat - Adds/removes tracking quest for Dogmeat.
    bat trackHancock - Adds/removes tracking quest for Hancock.
    bat trackMacCready - Adds/removes tracking quest for MacCready.
    bat trackPiper - Adds/removes tracking quest for Piper.
    bat trackPreston - Adds/removes tracking quest for Preston.
    bat trackStrong - Adds/removes tracking quest for Strong.
    bat trackValentine - Adds/removes tracking quest for Valentine.
    bat trackX688 - Adds/removes tracking quest for X6-88.
    bat trackBuddy - Adds/removes tracking quest for Buddy.
    bat trackAda - Adds/removes tracking quest for Ada.

    If you ever want to remove the quests, just add "un" in front of the command batch file name, i.e. "bat untrackAll".

4. Close the console and look in the miscellaneous tab in your quest log. The quests you wanted are now there and can be toggled on and off.
