To access in Vvardenfell (Morrowind) and Cyrodiil (Oblivion) with these mounts you have the 2 mods WIP: SKYWIND and SKYBLIVION

With Sokco's Guild Starter you can recruited up to 10 guild members in your home (aka headquarters)


INSTALLATION (very important)

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 .esp at the bottom of the list in the Data Files when you launch the game to obtain the 24 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 ! to obtain the books (ALL my mods are STANDALONE !)

You can find the “Spell tome: Summon XXXX” and the "Spell tome:Dismiss Summoned Forest Mounts" at Farengar Secret-Fire in Dragonsreach/Fort Dragon (Whitherun/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 Stag)

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) 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

2) 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

3) When you mount a Elk/Moose/Deer you must be patient a few seconds before moving !

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