Farm Animals - Mounts and Followers version 2.3 (No DLC required)

Optional Files: Esp version Française

"Farm Animals" allow you to summon Horse, Sheeps, Pig, Geese, Chickens, Cows and Goats, Mounts and (-simple-) Followers wherever you want.

You can find the 8 Companions/Followers (with speech) near the Whiterun Stable (Sheeps, Pig, Goose, Chickens, Goat, Cow).

IMPORTANT: you have an improved version of this mod here The Abandoned Farm (You must remove Farm Animals - Mounts and Followers before installing this one)

Farm Mounts are in this Video at 8’12’’ (Mod 5)



Only for the manual installation:

1) You have to put the folder « Data » in "...Steam/SteamApps/common/skyrim "

For the manual and the NMM installations:

2) You must place the new .esp at the bottom of the list in the "Data Files" when you launch the game to obtain the 17 books...(Normally, this is done automatically !)

3) (Only if you have download other mods "Summon...") You must INSTALL the summons (my other mods "summon") ONE BY ONE ! (ALL my mods are STANDALONE !)

You can find the “Spell tome: Summon Spectral XXXX”, the “Spell tome: Summon XXXX”, the “Spell tome: Dismiss Summoned Farm animals”, at Farengar Secret-Fire in Dragonsreach/Fort Dragon (Whiterun/Blancherive) or with an other "Spell Vendor" (ex: Sybille Stentor in the Blue Palace/Palais Bleu in Solitude).

Duration of the summon: 1 hour (15' for the spectral mounts)

4) You can put in your Skyrim.ini ( user / my documents / my games / Skyrim ) the following settings (you can copy / paste the following):



These settings allow you to see all mounts (of my mods) correctly, whether your character takes his weapon out or not

Bugs or Problems

1) Sometimes there is some "distortions" of the neck of the geese...

The Chickens and the Goose can’t jump, fly or swim…

If you dismount in the water with the Chickens or the Goose, it is possible to swim in the air !! Solution: MOUNT AGAIN or SPACEBAR

2) You can only have one Follower at a time: if you want a different one (in my other mods), you need to dismiss the first one before you recruit them.

If telling the follower to return at home (With message: “Your companion heads home”) doesn't dismiss him, or if you have "lost" the “active” Follower, you can try this:

Type “²” key to get into console, and type:

set playeranimalcount to 0

3) With Amazing Follower Tweaks by Dheuster , or other mod with followers, if problem to dismiss the followers, you can uncheck this mod (AFT or other) in the Data Files when you launch the game

4) If you have any problem with these mounts, you can try a FAST TRAVEL...
