X3AP Breaking Grounds

Post by riceygringo » Sun, 28. Sep 14, 20:58

I'm at the part where I'm supposed to find someone to sell my cartography chips, but after I deliver the guy he gives me a name without pointing me at a station. So now I have "Find Uckmankamstras" in my missions list but no map marker, is this normal?

You should go to, if I remember correctly,
Spoiler
Show
Weaver's Tempest or at least in one of the Yaki sectors
Hope that helps

It's different per game. That's not where I was told to find the chips.
Check you message log, shift-M, there might be more details there.

So, setting the Mission to "Active," and turning on the Guidance, doesn't give you a big yellow glowing halo around the sector you need to find?

That seems odd.

As stated above, it should be in your Message Log, at any rate.

Well here's what's going on, the Terracorps guy tells me to find the cartography chips dealer. But all I've got is a name with no map marker, and the missions list shows "guidance disabled" without an option to enable the guidance. I'm afraid that I've bugged out the mission because I was in an UFJD sector when I was given the mission to transport the Terracorp representative to the Hub, so the game might have simply not spawned the dealer, hopefully I have a save backed up somewhere.

I can confirm that not being in an UFJD sector fixes my problem. That was unfortunate though, I was in the middle of an Aran boarding and had to throw away 20 5* marines.

That's tragic, you had no save before entering that sector at all?

Even the last autosave was inconveniently far from your current point? It's either that or lose those marines.

How I overwrote the autosaves
1. Dock at station to switch back into Hyperion
2. Dock at terracorps to pick up passenger
3. Dock at the Hub to transport the guy (this is when I get the bugged mission)

So, those autosaves were after the location of the chips dealer had been set, correct? So sorry to hear that.
