Hello. I am now playing TR_Mainland version 18.07. It was a nasty surprise for me when I saw no silt strider in Bal Oyra and no destination to Tel Ouada, Llothanis etc. from Firewatch. I saw an explanation on the forum that Telvanni keep no connection with Imperial towns, but haven't you tried too hard? Telanni towns are just unavailable by any meaning but running or swimming. It's ridiculous. A whole region cannot be isolated, they just must get supplies somehow. I've taken a quest in Firewatch Fighter guild with a stalker whom I need to bring to Llothannis and I just have to run with him through a wild area, fighting animals and healing the stalker. I don't even know if it's possible - maybe there's no road. There must be at least one connection with Telvanni region, let it be expensive, make me pay tolls etc., but there must be some kind of transport! The players have to run there and back on every quest connected to Telvanni, it's just a torture.
I know that there's a TR_Travels.esm file, but whot does it do? It's not the main release so I didn't touch it. Will it solve the problem? What does it change in the game, exactly? I'm sure there's a description somewhere, can I have a link there?
