While making a mod for Skyrim, I'd like to allow a player to chose a location to teleport to.

Essentially, I'll be:

  • enabling Fast Travel if disabled
  • changing fast travel speed so that the travel happens near instantly in game time
  • opening the map to allow player to select destination
  • resetting fast travel speed, disabling fast travel if appropriate

It's the third dot point I need help with. I can work out the others with Papyrus script, but is there a way to open the Map using Papyrus or SKSE?

OK, I found the answer myself:

It can't be done with Papyrus, but can with SKSE using the Input function:

    int MapKey = Input.GetMappedKey("Quick Map")

Needed to extract the SKSE script sources to Skyrim Data Script Source folder to get access to the SKSE functions.
