Right, so I read the similar question and the answers were pretty much everything I've done to get past them. What I want to know is if there is a console command or mod or something else that lets you push these nefarious followers out of your way. By followers I mean everything: followers, thralls, dogs, atronachs, etc.

To emphasize: I'm aware of ways to make them to move somewhere specific, what I want is a way to enable me to push them out of the way or move through them or otherwise keep them entirely out of the way.

    yes i am asking the same question that ben asked however im not looking for one of the many justpushintothemuntiltheymove fixes im looking for a console command or mod that makes it so i can push them out of the way by walking into them or something. thralls do not move out of the way when you walk into them. i want to be able to have thralls without the annoyance of having to kill them as soon as i enter a dead end.

    Can I suggest that you try to avoid too many reallylongwordsthatarereallylongfornorealreason? They make the question harder to read and don't really add anything.

I think this is the mod you're looking for:

Move it Dammit!

If Companions or Creatures are in a doorway, sometimes they don't move far enough and continue to block your way..

This esp will tell them to walk around double the distance away from you rather than default values. If there is no way forward they will walk around you in a circle, so ensure there's room for them.

Move it Dammit! also has a 'Less Wait Time' version, that should make the follower move almost instantly upon bumping them.

Also, try its optional add-on:

Stop Bumping into Me!

Keeps your Companions and Creatures at a more managable Distance while still keeping up for Battle detection. also from running - walk - stop is more immediate...

  • well, its better than the ones i could find. still, it doesnt account for the atronarchs who still simply stand(or float) and laugh at me. Mar 13, 2012 at 6:01

    @BelamAshborne It works fine for me, even with creature followers (like atronarchs and reanimated Draugrs). However, you might want to report that issue at the Move it Dammit! forum thread. Mar 13, 2012 at 6:31
  • huh. that is odd. maybe my game's just glitched then, atronachs have never moved out of the way for me, always had to kill/lead them out of the doorways/corridors. will have to look it up. Mar 13, 2012 at 17:08

If you stand still nose-to-nose with them for a second, they will step back a bit. Took me 2 playthroughs to figure out.

If you want to move through them, use TCL (make sure you don't have a target selected, or they will become bugged).

You can also FUSRODAH them out of the way, it's not a crime. Works on flame atronachs, sort of stumbles frost atronachs uselessly and makes storm atronachs swirl.

  • oh hey woops tried editing the answer as a form of response o-o;;; did not see the add comment box i swear. i forget what i said but tcl is cool but its like trading one annoyance for another. and yeah i know the standfacetoface trick as well as murdering the dumb sod. which is what i usually do to my atronachs. Mar 13, 2012 at 6:06
  • does unrelenting force work on atronachs? i never tried it on them lol oh also i wouldnt do it since i may accidently send them flying off a mountain or something o-o im a clumsy oaf lol Mar 13, 2012 at 22:28
  • Because every atronach is a precious, special snowflake. Updated the answer.

Interesting mod named Come together N Out of the way — Nausicaa-S Tweaker (link for Nexus Mods) allowing more complex settings and possibly the best way to get rid of problems with this issue:

If your followers are blocking your way, you can move them using very simple menu controls. Also, if the distance of your followers is too far from you, you can make them come closer using the same menu. You can move NPCs to your front or their original location. You can be moved to a selected NPC. Also, you can resurrect dead NPCs. And more useful things.
