Make the thrall pot and feeding trough act like magnets for your followers when you are within their radius of influence. You should be able to turn them on and turn them off.
The idea is for your followers to have a specified place to congregate around while you are in your base.
Followers are appearing on top of you while you are on stairs and locking you down so you can’t move or order them to move.
Would be nice to specify a location for a follower or mount to wait for you when you enter a base, and automatically resume following you when you leave the radius of influence of the thrall pot.
