 What does it do?
Adds the locations of the houses you buy throughout the game to your world map, allowing you to fast travel directly to them. You will appear just outside the house facing the door. Houses are generically named, ex. - Waterfront house"
- Imperial City Waterfront
Two Versions; use one.
- "HouseMapMarkers.esp" - shows house markers after you discover the location, for example same as when you discover a cave in-game.
- "HouseMapMarkersOnlyBought.esp" - shows house markers ONLY if you have purchased them (will still show up if you have already bought the house)
- Unzip into your Oblivion\Data folder.
- From the Oblivion launcher, select "Data Files".
- Check "HouseMapMarkers.esp" or "HouseMapMarkersOnlyBought.esp" ONLY ONE.
- Click OK and play the game.
Remove the "HouseMapMarkers.esp", "HouseMapMarkersOnlyBought.esp", and "HouseMapMarkers - README.txt" files located in your Oblivion\Data folder.
 How it was done
Added MapMarker static objects to the world locations of the houses you buy. Made the icon a settlement icon. Ghostwalker added scripts so that the house markers only show up when you buy the house
Special thanks to Ghostwalker for making the Only When Bought version.
 Bugs & Limitations
Only limitation with "HouseMapMarkers.esp" is that the house locations will show up after you have discovered the location, even if you haven't bought the house yet. Use "HouseMapMarkersOnlyBought.esp" if you'd rather them show up only if you buy the house.

 Reviews by Galahaut
I guess it's about time I reviewed another mod that isn't something graphical. Anyway, this mod is pretty simple. It adds map makers to each of the purchaseable houses. In versions earlier than 1.4, the map makers appeared for all houses, even if you hadn't bought them. That may have been a little "cheaty," but it didn't really bother me too much. Now, in 1.4, with help from Ghostwalker, Mordrid included a version where the map markers only appear after you have bought the house. While that issue in the previous versions wasn't a big deal to me, this new addition made a good mod even better. I definitely recommend using this mod, with the alternate "appear when bought" version, if you plan on using your house(s) a lot.

This mod is pretty straight forward, with the exception that it doesn't seem to work with Tikigod and Beider's http://www.oblivionmodwiki.com/index.php/BTmod BT Mod. But good job either way!
