Fingerposts Fast Travel by Phendrena
(Previously know as : Road Signs Fast Travel by Kesta)

When I asked to acquire this mod from The Nexus Caretaker my intention was update it with compatibility patches, however as I started to play around with the inner workings of the mod it developed into something more, something I wasn't expecting.... it became a complete Fingerpost Overhaul and consumed my life for the past six weeks - even up to the point of typing this description today (31/08/2020 @ 19:04 UK) my brain is still pondering where I can stick another fingerpost!!!

You can quite happily use this mod even if you have no intention to use the 'slightly more immersive than using the map' fast travel function. Due the the hard requirements noted below, and, along with the numerous additions that I have made, you'll not struggle to find a fingerpost along well travelled roads, or indeed some less travelled routes.

It should be noted that I am not a texture artist, I am far from it. I've learnt a teeny-tiny amount of texture editing using nifskope and gimp and I have added some of my own fingers that point the way, such as those to Darkwater Crossing or Soljund's Sinkhole or indeed a few alternatives to existing signs.
- Thanks to Arthmoor for point me to Hanaisse's Hanas Blank Roadsigns - Resource mod.

So why change the mod name? Well.....
A fingerpost is a traditional type of sign post mainly used in the UK. Consisting of a post with one or more arms, known as fingers, pointing in the direction of travel to places named on the fingers

If you are an existing user of this mod then you must completely uninstall the previous version and all associated files before you install version 2.0

As of version 2.0 the following mods are now hard requirements:
Unoffical Skyrim Special Edition Patch
Cutting Room Floor

ANY & ALL previous patches made for Road Signs Fast Travel WILL NOT WORK with version 2.0 (Fingerposts Fast Travel)

Dragon Bridge
Falkreath

Ivarstead
JK's Skyrim
Karthwasten
Kynesgrove
Man Those Borders SSE
Old Hroldan Ruins SE
Rorikstead
Shor's Stone
Skyrim Better Roads and Bridges ~ (All-in-One, Eastmarch, The Rift & Winterhold)

Unique Border Gates    NOTE: The Point the Way Patch for Unique Border Gates IS NOT required if you are using Fingerposts Fast Travel.

I am happy to provide further compatibility patches for you favourite mods, provided that they are available on Nexus Mods.


Known Incompatible:
Creation Club Survival - Completely disables ALL fast travel.
I do not own this mod and therefore I am unable to investigate.


Known Issue:
Fast Travel Destination - Version 2.0 changes the Fast Travel Destination to the stables outside of the walled city (Whiterun Stables for example). However, from extensive testing it appears that the fast travel destination is hard coded into your save file. Existing users of this mod will therefore find that the fast travel arrival destination doesn't change and you still arrive in the city walls.


Load Order:
Fingerpost Fast Travel should be loaded as late as possible in your load order.
While Atlas Map Markers SE isn't a requirement to use Fingerpost Fast Travel, it does play around with the Map Markers. I strongly recommend that you load Atlas Map Markers BEFORE Fingerpost Fast Travel.

► Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch
► Cutting Room Floor
► Point The Way
► Town and Village Mods or anything else changes vanilla Fingerposts -
► Atlas Map Markers SE
► Fingerpost Fast Travel
► Fingerpost Fast Travel Patches -


Script Disabled Fast Travel Workaround:
An option is provided within the MCM that allows you to disable the check against script-forced fast travel disabling. By default, Fingerposts Fast Travel prevents fast travel when disabled via scripting. This option allows you to bypass this if needed. Disabling fast travel via scripting is only intended for temporary use during a quest but can potentially be abused as a quick and dirty solution in some "no fast travel" mods.
