followers stuck in areas I got them in

Not about OpenMW? Just about Morrowind in general? Have some random babble? Kindly direct it here.

seems like it would be good to make it optional because, there are mods that do that with scripts it makes those mods obsolete.

I have this problem even on regular quests in the storyline it seems. When I have a companion following me into a distinct area - in the most recent case, from Vivec to Pelegiad - they just vanish into thin air at a certain point. This has happened a few times. It seems like no one is quite having the same problem? Using OSX Sierra and mods are TR, Morrowind Rebirth, MCA, (Boats, Gondoliers, River Striders, Silt Striders), and the rest are for body and clothes.

I've not experienced this despite having done the iternemerel mages guild quest where you have to escort him to Pelagiad.

I just tested this again. First I got the same result just before making it to Pelegiad. Then I tried again and saved near the point where the follower had previously disappeared. But I was able to bring the follower past that point to the destination and they weren't wiped out. So I'm not sure what the problem is here but it doesn't seem to occur ever time.

Could the follower be running off after an enemy? I had a follower do that once and I came back across them several months later. I was shocked when they came running up to me. I almost killed them. :mrgreen:

They literally vanish from one instant to the next and you can see it happen. But yeah, sometimes they also like to run off after an enemy and cause havoc. If they came running after me several months later I would have probably killed them too.

Another possibility might be an issue with meshes & collisions. I've came across several mods where the meshes would allow the Player, NPC or Creatures to fall right though, disappearing from view. Some mesh replacer (UV) mods also have this issue.
