Just like the title says. After several hours, days, of gameplay I am getting this message. No new mods added. No updates made (except one, I'll explain below). No enemies nearby. I'm not being pursued. I am under my carryweight. Happens both on and off my horse and with different companions. Location doesn't matter.

 

I have two games going, each under a different profile in Mod Organizer. They do not have all the same mods, though there is a large number of mods common to both. Even within this pool of commonality, Game 2 has updated versions of a handful of mods. The only change I made to game 1 was to replace zaz animation package 7.0 w/ 8.0+. Game 2 started with that (zaz 8+).

 

I started Game 2 using the Alternate Start mod, recently, but still have many hours into it. The fast travel issue occurred at the same time for both games.

 

I'm attaching Game 1 logs from right after I tried to fast travel from Windhelm Stables. First I fast traveled from near there, via the console and enablefasttravel 1. The console command is only good for one trip. When I tried to fast travel again w/o using the console, the message appeared and I can't go anywhere except on foot.

 

Game 1 - vanilla start

Game 2 - Alternate Start

 

Skyrim Legendary edition.

Have you tried toggling godmode and seeing if it lets you fast travel without disabling/enabling ft itself?

 

Is it possible that you glitched one of your main quests that has fast travel disabled in certain locations, such as the beginning of the alternate start mod or the diplomatic immunity quest?

 

edit: alternate start bugs out quest stages for any saves that have started with the vanilla start if it's installed/active. not saying thats the cause but something to consider.

Thanks, I'll try god mode and see if that works. Will I have to keep it on for the rest of the game? I don't think I want that. Or just long enough to travel? Will saving and then undoing god mode fix fast travel for the future? FWIW, I've only done your typical fast travels: from one exterior location to a 'discovered' map marker.

 

On the vanilla start game I've been instructed to meet Malborn in Solitude, but I haven't gone there yet. It is Skyrim, so it could be glitched, of course. That shouldn't affect the alternate start game (game 2). They're not even under the same profile. I didn't know Diplomatic Immunity could mess with fast travel. Huh. If that's the case, then I better get that over with.

 

Game 2, I completed the AS, ended up in Whiterun, and didn't try to fast travel until I 'discovered' Whiterun and Whiterun Stables outside of Whiterun. I went on a carriage ride to discover a couple of places and was able to fast travel no problem. I haven't even started the main quest yet. With Game 2 I installed all the mods in 1 big batch before starting a new game. No changes. And even if a problem developed, I don't see why it would affect the first game. *sigh*

 

Thought:  could switching back and forth between games as I did for a couple of days cause the glitch? Maybe the next thing I should try is something I should probably have done first. Namely, go to Steam and validate/verify the game files.

 

Hopefully I'll be back later with good news.

Update

 

Game files validated. Still no fast travel.

 

Tried god mode on both games. Still no fast travel.

 

Loaded early save for Game 2. Was able to fast travel.

Later saves, no.

 

Loaded pre-Diplomatic Immunity save for Game 1. Fast travel - no problem.

 

Loaded the next save. Diplomatic Immunity had started, was at the 'meet Delphine in Riverwood' stage. Fast travel - no problem.

 

********Loaded subsequent saves. No problem until after I spoke to Delphine and she tells me to speak to Malborn in Solitude. Near as I can tell, this save roughly corresponds in real time to when I began having problems in Game 2.

 

So, I'll finish up what I'm doing, dump stuff at 'home', and head to Solitude ASAP.

 

NOTE:  I suppose this also explains why I have trouble loading a save when I'm supposed to be in sneak mode. More than once I've loaded, couldn't see the sneak symbol --, hitting CTRL to sneak/unsneak didn't change my pc's stance at all, and had to reload the same save to get sneak working properly in my far-away-from-Solitude/Thalmor Embassy location.

Can you try this again, loading a save before it happens, then talking to Delphine and noting exactly what time as displayed by your system clock you do, then immediately exiting the game?  Then upload that attempt's Papyrus log.  It sounds like some script is firing as soon as you talk to Delphine, and it breaks fast travel.

Thank you, I'll do that the next time I load up Skyrim. However, at this moment, color me flummoxed!

 

Fast travel started working again. I don't know why. No console commands. I cleared out some bandits and was blessed to be able to fast travel again. I did it several times to make sure it wasn't a mistake and only once did it not fire up. There might have been a dragon in the distance I couldn't see. I'm at the Winking Skeever, ready to meet Malborn. I will finish the Diplomatic Immunity quest on Game 1 before checking Game 2 to see if it's fixed on both playthroughs.

 

I will upload the Papyrus log, because even if I'm okay now, you or somebody might see something that could help someone else. (Or me later if the magic fades)

 

approx. 4 hours later

Never mind. Got back to Skyrim, fired up a new game (have to do that sometimes/frequently), loaded the save and talked to Delphine. Went outside to try fast travel and was able to do so twice. I just don't know about this game, sometimes.

Yea it winds me up sometimes too. Then the AI pulls out off some awesome, out of thin air. Like 1st meeting with the Greybeards  the other day. Was a hell of a storm outside. Went to learn Whirlwind sprint and just as we exited the door out in the yard one of the other Grey beards shouted clear skies. I've never seen that in over 5 years of playing and modding the game it floored me. Don't know if it was a feature of a mod I never seen before or not. As for fast travel bugs that's a good one too look out for. But generally speaking I walk or ride everywhere. Its one I'd have missed.

What you need to do is to start using Hadoram's save cleaner tool, so it use next time you got an issue. :smile:

Do you have Survival Mode enabled? For me, it seems that when Survival Mode is enabled you cannot use fast travel and the same message pops up. It is likely for balancing reasons as to make the game harder.

Have you look at your settings from ZAZ and the setting from devious devices? They can sometimes change to disable fast travel.

Another solution can be sometimes; open map, open console, type "enablefasttravel 1"
