Hi all.

I'm looking into this issue, and yes, there are cases where it can stall. What should happen is that sub-missions occur for you to take part in. But if you missed them for long enough, they would stop spawning.

It should be fixed in the next version.

Well, I don't know if we've said when an update is next due out, but yes, it is before next year. We're working on it :roll:

EDIT: Split the reports about visual artifacts to this thread.

Did this get fixed? In the 4.21 patch?

There were some fixes which I confirmed by testing someones savegame.

Specifically, the issues fixed were:
SpoilerShow
- Fixed the Xenon Incursion missions stalling if a number of mission events (those on the event monitor) were ignored
- Fixed end of mission logbook message for the 'Xenon Buildup' mission.
- Fixed end of mission balancing for the 'Lost contact' mission
- Fixed these missions taking guidance away from other active missions when running in parallel.

These two missions will occur randomly and present themselves in the event monitor and the BBS. Should you wish to ignore them, you can do, and they will then only appear in the BBS. Xenon activity should be relatively high in Albion until the end of the set of missions.
If for some reason, you still can't get these missions, please let us know.

Hmmm, maybe I'm missing something but I already have the mission in my list of active missions. Its listed as a plot mission. The problem is if I set it to current mission there is never any guidance shown so I have no idea how to progress the plot from here.

Edit: just to add, as far as I was concerned, I completed the mission. Even got a mission complete message after killing off a few waves of xenon attacking some large ship, but the game seems to think it wasn't completed properly. There was some message about components parts will be investigated etc etc.

As Bazza said it is at least not fixed for existing savegames (or the mission description should be made more clear). I also have it listed as plot mission but no further guidance. After destroying the first Xenon ships and collecting the xenon component nothing happened. Never used any mods for the game. 45 hours into the game and I did not get any mission updates (Though I admit I have not been to Albion much since the last update).

Today I was flying more in Albion and spotted the next plot mission on the bulletin board. So it seems to work now :)

Since I got this 1 mission after patch, I have had nothing since so it seems stuck again. I'd like to see what this main campaign is all about but after 70 hours its become quite the mystery :D

Hi,

If you happen to have these missions being stuck, could you please send me your savegame to owen@egosoft.com

And if you can remember, state what parts of the missions you have taken part in so far.

Thanks,
Owen

Tbh, I'm not sure if it is stuck. It just takes an inordinate amount of time for another plot mission to appear. When one finally does its the same as the last "escort pride of albion...". Complete mission, wait hours for the next xenon incursion meeting point.

I was hoping there would be a continuous plot that basically lead you through all aspects of the game.

I've restarted the game and got some Xenon missions after the tutorial ones. Problem is, the current mission seems stuck in a loop. I'm tasked to fly to a spot in empty space, once I get there, I'm told to get back on the highway, which loops around and sends me back to the same spot. I fly to the same spot in empty space, the mission target disappears, and the whole thing starts again. Frustrating !

edit: NM. I figured out you have to scan the area as you approach the marker. The real location appears immediately.

I'm wondering if it's normal to be getting the same mission over and over. I keep getting the mission to aid a patrol. I get there, retrieve the info floating around, kill the Xenon, and... get the same mission again. Is this it for the plot?
