When companions are in a familiar and safe environment, they automatically go into sandbox mode. Instead of following you, they wander around, eat, sleep, sit on a couch.


To allow sandboxing, a cell must:
– be without hostiles and corpses,
– have furniture or an idle marker,
– be visited more than once.


Supports vanilla and TTW companions any properly made companions and JIP CC&C.


Requires JIP LN NVSE and JohnnyGuitar NVSE.

Works very well, and a nice little immersion addition.

Fawkes’ butt is too big for chairs- poor fella

Seems really cool. Gonna give this a try. Thank you!

Does this allow companions to eat and drink without actually consuming an item? It sounds kind of silly, but I remember one of the official patches took out companion sandboxing in the Lucky 38 because they kept taking food and drink that the player obtained throughout their travels. I was thinking it’d be cool if companions played the animations for picking up items lying about and then going to consume them, without actually taking anything.

sweet thanks

A simple idea that adds a lot as it turns out. Cool mod!

Good mod, however sometimes ‘lancement idle anim global” gets printed in the console numerous times, I wonder if its supposed to be this way or something wrong going on behind the scenes
