Gerbils Mounts and Followers 1.4.1 (No DLC), 3.5 (DLC Dragonborn required) and 4.9.1 (Incubated Eggs Edition - DLC Dragonborn required - Final version)

No Scripts, No SKSE

Optional Files: Esp version Française pour les versions 1.4.1 ou 3.5 ou 4.9.1

With this mod, you can summon 35 (or 14) Followers: many with different Gerbils + you can ride Chickens, Chocobos and Dwarven Miners + you can incubate some eggs with the fire of the forge, and quickly create a horde of little Creatures (Chickens, Dwarven Miners, Chocobos ...with Gerbils) !

To have the SUMMONABLE Followers, you must buy the “Spell tome: Summon XXXX”, at Farengar Secret-Fire in Dragonsreach/Fort Dragon (Whiterun) or with an other "Spell Vendor" (ex: Sybille Stentor in the Blue Palace/Palais bleu in Solitude).

With the books, you have the spells....

The creature is following you, if you do not want any more,you have another book/spell to unsummon this follower ! (You can't trade with these followers)

INSTALLATION (very important)

1) You must place the new .esp at the bottom of the list in the Data Files when you launch the game to obtain the 30 (or 15) books...(Normally, this is done automatically)

2) (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 !).If you have not bought a book/spell, NO PROBLEM, you can always put again this mod at the bottom of the list… buy the books, etc...

You can find the “Spell tome: Summon XXXX”,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).

3) 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

Incubated EGGS Edition (Final version)

This version adds the ability to quickly incubate eggs with the fire of the forge, and quickly create a horde of little creatures* (5, 15, 50, 100, MORE ? ...ATTENTION with the freezes in your computer !) that are following you as if you were their mother !

* Creatures Chickens, Dwarven Miners, and Chocobos ...with Gerbils!

To obtain these eggs, simply bring any “XXX Egg ” (found with some merchants *) to a forge and create the "Incubated XXX Egg" in the "misc" section. Now open up your inventory, navigate to "Scrolls" and there they are. You throw them and when they hit the ground they hatch into little creatures. Some of these little creatures can follow you !

When your creatures die, remember to loot their corpses for more eggs ! (The eggs are also in the dead creatures)

If you have my other mods with Incubated Eggs: Incubated Eggs, Curious Birds Mounts and Armies , Chimeras Mounts and Armies, New Gryphons Mounts and Armies, Snails and Slugs of Skyrim, Repopulate with Mushrooms, Griffins Mounts and Armies,Gerbils Mounts and Followers , Skaven Mounts and Followers or Incubated Winged Chocobos , in order to find these eggs at Merchants, you must choose the mod for which you want to buy and place it at the bottom of the list in the Data Files when you launch the game.

* Merchants In Whiterun Arcadia of Arcadia’s Cauldron, Anoriath, Hulda of the Bannered Mare.

The Birds are harmless creatures. The Dwarven Miners are very aggressive.

Bugs or Problems

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

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

To turn easily,it is better to walk ! ...

When the Chicken, the Rock Bug or the Chocobo is in battle, it approaches the enemy and just stand their and lets itself be attacked and it doesn't fight back (there is no animation in the game for the Chickens/Chocobos/Rock Bugs to fight)
