|YWALK(1)||General Commands Manual||YWALK(1)|
ywalkis a fast-travel companion for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. It can print out fast-travel information for a given place, or calculate the quickest fast-travel route between a set of places.
Place names are as they appear in the game, for example “Sadrith Mora” or “Ald'ruhn”.
If no place is given,
ywalk lists all places in its database. If only one
place is given, the program will print out direct
connections to and from that place. Additionally, a reachability map is
printed, showing how easy it is to travel from the given place to any other
on the map.
If two or more places are given,
ywalk will calculate the best route through all of
The options are as follows:
- Shows the integrated help page and exits.
- Allows only the use of the given modes of transport, separated by commas.
The modes of transport are as follows:
Value Name Notes almsivi Almsivi Intervention boat Boat caravan Caravan Only in Tamriel Rebuilt divine Divine Intervention foot Walking Used to access Imperial Forts guide Guild Guide propylon Propylon Chambers Includes the Master Index recall Recall river_strider River Strider Only in Tamriel Rebuilt silt_strider Silt Strider
- Avoids the use of the given modes of transport, separated by commas.
- Avoids traveling through the given place. This option can be given multiple times.
- Avoids using modes of travel that are based on teleportation. Specifically
this excludes the Guild Guide, any Propylon-based travel, and the Recall
and Intervention spells. This mode is useful if
ywalkshould find a path that is suitable for escort missions.
- Uses the given weighting method when determining the best path. The
weighting methods are as follows:
- Optimizes for the smallest number of hops between places.
- Optimizes for the quickest journey measured by in-game hours.
This option overrides any method given in the configuration file.
[misc] data = tr-travels recall = Tel Uvirith
The options for the misc group are as follows:
- The base name of the data file to use when building the travel network.
See DATA FILES for more information
on the data file format and location.
The default installation includes the following data files:
- Definitions for the vanilla Game of the Year edition of Morrowind.
- Definitions for the Game of the Year edition of Morrowind including Tamriel Rebuilt's TR_Travels plugin.
The default is goty.
- Specifies which place is accessible through the Recall spell. This should
be one of the places defined in the data file.
By default no Recall destination is set.
- Specifies which weighting method to use. See the
-woption for details.
The default is least-time.
ywalkconstructs its travel network by reading connection definitions from a text file. A connection definition consists of the origin and destination place, the mode of transport, and the amount of in-game hours needed to make the journey.
The first line of a data file defines the column names. Values are
separated by the tab character.
ywalk expects the
following column names to be available:
- The origin of a connection.
- The destination of a connection.
- The mode of transport, given by its full name.
- The amount of in-game hours needed to complete the journey.
The following lines are the connection definitions, with values separated by the tab character.
- The configuration file for
- The base directory for data files making up the travel network.
ywalk adheres to the XDG Base Directory
If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is unset or empty, it will default to ~/.config.
If $XDG_DATA_HOME is unset or empty, it will default to ~/.local/share.
ywalk Vivec | less
To print the shortest path between Vivec and Gnisis:
ywalk Vivec Gnisis
To exclude the use of Almsivi and Divine intervention:
ywalk -M almsivi,divine Vivec Gnisis
To exclude any teleportation-based transport:
ywalk -T Vivec Gnisis
To add an intermediate stop in Vos:
ywalk -T Vivec Vos Gnisis
To avoid Ebonheart on the way:
ywalk -T -P Ebonheart Vivec Vos Gnisis
To make sure to use the least amount of hops:
ywalk -T -P Ebonheart -w least-hop Vivec Vos Gnisis
