I am using Skyrim Creation Kit to create a very simple mod. I want the mod to make one NPC follow another NPC. My first problem is that I am not really 100% sure where to start. The second problem is which functions I should use. I have been reading the documentation at www.creationkit.com. In other words:

LOOP: { 
  // move Bob to Mike's current position with speed of 0.5
  (npc_Bob.moveToPosition( npc_Mike.getPos(), 0.5 )
} // end loop

My Attempt:

I tried making a quest but to no avail. So then I made 2 custom actors (member and leader) and I put this script in member:

Scriptname NpcFollowNpc extends ObjectReference
//***put a loop once you get this part working
// moves member to leader with speed of 0.5
member.PathToReference(leader, 0.5)

but it didn't compile. I don't really know if this is the right way to implement what I want. I know how to code and make algorithms and a bunch of that computer science stuff, but I don't know how to move the actor member to the location of actor leader in Skyrim and loop it while the actor leader is alive.

Any ideas how I could go about doing this? thanks for any help/feedback!

As stated in this forum, you will need to Spawn a path point, attach it to an NPC. Then press U with the pathpoint selected to open the parameters. In the first text field, the one called Type, replace "Stand" with whatever (has to be written with a capital letter)

  • \$\begingroup\$ That's an interesting method. I actually used a different approach - I will post on here later, but basically I assigned a custom package (that used the Follow Package Template) to an actor. More info here. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Ibrahim to be honest, I know little on Skyrim modding. I just had found the forum and put some of it's knowledge and my own into the answer. :) \$\endgroup\$ Nov 1, 2017 at 23:30
