I would 100% recommend this mod if you want a real challenge. I missed the part that tells you to run this with a random gen world. I had to literally go back through hours of you tube videos of others playing this mod until someone mentioned the same issue I was having. I believe that was why I wasn't getting the custom POIs for the storyline. I started over on random gen, and I'm currently running it with 19.2, and had zero issues. Give it a try!!
I uninstalled, then reinstalled with 19.2. I'm not sure what versions this mod supports, but 19.2 is working for me. I also access through the mod launcher. I'm on a random gen world with no issues.
