[2.60B4] War mission asked me to board my own ship the 2nd time

Post by VincentTH » Wed, 9. Oct 19, 19:13

I have a GOP vs HOP war mission that has 3 legs.

First leg asked me to board a Behemoth Vanguard [Done]
Second leg asked me to kill a HOP Gorgon Sentinel [Done]
Third leg asked me to board the same ship in #1.

Save game

Forgot to say that this is a game started in v2,5, and continued on to 2.6Beta4

Can you confirm that leg 3 of the chain does not complete automatically due to fulfilling leg 1? Although I agree that being asked and paid to board the same ship twice is nonsensical, I would hope that it at least auto completes to avoid soft locking the chain progress.

I cannot do the 3rd leg, because I cannot board my own ship in the first place!!!! It does not "auto-complete" in itself.

Hope this answers your question.

As workaround, sell back the Behemoth to the HOP, then board it again.

If I fly another ship close to the Behemoth, then the mission auto-complete!!!!

I had exactly the same experience.

I suspect that's because the first sub objective of boarding a ship is to approach it. It then activates the second sub objective of capturing the ship... which immediately completes as successful since you own it. Just speculating on the internal logic going on here :)

Actually, the first objective would not be completed until you have boarded the ship. The 3rd objective was supposed to be you hand over the ship to the GOP so that they can collect some data from the ship, and then hand the ship back to the player (according to the mission briefing). The bug is that the 3rd leg mission objective should be edited to say exactly that, not "Board the (same) ship".

Ah, fair enough. I don't generally do missions that involve boarding ops since I tend to try and only fight the xenon and khaak 🙂

I don't like boarding missions either, but those boarding missions beat the "hand over 4x 5-star pilot/engineer" missions.

I definitely like them much more than those build fleet missions, but boarding missions got me to start taking risks against my allied HOP. I would get tons of spacesuit bombs, land an M on the target, plant the bombs on both the target and its wingmen (whose missile turrets are deadly if left intact), and detonate from my M or elsewhere, then start fighting and boarding. It's quite a thrill! Spacesuit bombs are awesome.

Actually , the devs have changed the boarding missions' target to be a pirate ship disguised as HOP ships.

In 2.6 Beta 5? It wasn't this way for me in Beta 4.

If you load the save game I posted in the first post, the mission is for a "HOP Behemoth Vanguard", which turns out to be an SCA ship after scanning .

Also, I don't mind build missions, except those that require MODs on ships.
