Split Plot - Finding Bau T'Gnt....

Post by grapedog » Fri, 22. May 20, 16:00

So i took the initial Split plot mission, but didn't follow up on it for a while. I'm trying to do it now, but I've no guidance. I've read online that I need to find some dude flying a funeral ship, but I've no waypoints or even general directions on where to go. Is this bugged for me, should it be providing me a waypoint to find this person, so should I just be trusting in luck that I'll run into him at some point?

Hmm. The funeral ship should be just at the gate and pretty unmissable since its a civilian ship with a docking era for S ships.
Are you sure you are at the funeral ship part and not at an earlier step of the plot?

i think the inital plot mission was actually picking up some dude on a station and moving him to somewhere else.

There are a few times you need to go talk to a split person during the quest arc. You mention you read on the internet that there is one on a funeral ship, but are you sure you are that far? If you haven't investigated a hijacked ship yet, you aren't far enough for the funeral ship to appear. Your statement of "traveling a lot" makes me think you are on the mission you need to make a Split friend by ferrying him in an S-sized ship (the very first quest in the split plot line). Try piloting an S-sized ship if you aren't. Also, are you sure the mission is active and not just in your quest log? View the mission in your quest log and click the "set active" button if it is not.

If this is the person you are looking for, his location is random. You won't find his location online.

Hope that helps!

what i have in my missions briefing is

"talk to: bau t'gnt"
"talk to: suspicious split"
"transport" suspicious split"

and that's it... no locations, no directions, no waypoint.

So yes thats the very first mission. He should be on some station. However i am not sure that this station is fixed.
Just to ensure you are not missing a very basic thing: you are in your ship in space and commanding it yourself? sometimes pointers dont appear while you are docked.

oh yeah, it's my only mission at the moment and i've left it active. so i'v been pilot on small, medium, and large ships, been just flying around with my co pilot flying, been on stations... nothing ever changes and I never get any direction or location or guidance.

I have the feeling that he might have spawned on a station that has been destroyed menanwhile.
I heard of something similar in case of a NPC on a ship.
In that thread the player did manage to get the NPC to respawn though. Maybe that approach might work for you too. Should i stumble over the thread i will post a link

thank you. i just have no idea where he is at this point, it's pretty much an un-playable mission sadly. I was looking forward to it.

Unfortunatly i cant find that thread anymore. it was about a player that needed an NPC on some ship, the ship got destroyed and he tried respawning the ship and add the NPC to it. I remember there was an issue that the ID meanwhile changed.
Maybe someone else remebers what that thread was?
