Hi all,

 

This time it's about the Boston Airport, after BoS has arrived. The airport ferry vertibird(on the pad on the ground, not on the Prydwen) has disappeared and is missing, yowsers! While I was touring the Prydwen one o' my settlements was attacked and before reapproaching Maxon, on the flight deck, I took the ferry vertibird down to the Commonwealth ground. Turning around to view the conversation of two BoSs I noticed that the vertibird was invisible. It turned out it was gone completely as there was no collision when I walked into it's space and no prompt to go to the Prydwen.

 

After the settlement attack I returned and the vertibird was still gone. Only way for me to get aboard the Prydwen is by fast travel. After clearing Fort Strong I returned to Boston Airport and the vertibird ferry was still missing. I have absolutely no idea on how to troubleshoot this. I tried a save in fort hagen immediatly after killing a certain cackling, grizzled mercenary, exited the fort, headed to Cambridge Police Station and took the vertibird to the Prydwen and the grounded vertibird ferry was missing.

 

I tend not to fast travel but I'm very glad that I actually can now! Have that option at least. I plan to cream the BoS in this playthrough so the ferry vertibird would be gone down the line anyways... still it should be there now! It would be absolutely splendid if you guys could help me out, with advice and suggestions and whatnot. I would appreciate your effort!

 

Thanks for reading.

I had that issue with my previous character. Mine started back at the police station, I couldn't climb into the vertibird. I put it down to not getting the 2 radiant quests from Haylen and Rhys before going to Fort Hagen and triggering the Prydwen arrival.
I consoled myself onto the deck of the Prydwen, seeing as I couldn't get there by vertibird from the police station. I noticed that the 'airport vertbird' was missing. Meanwhile, MQ completed, dozens of hours into the game and the vertibird is still missing.
I've since moved onto a new character who did the sequence properly, and it's all as it should be.

Sounds to me like by dropping everything to defend a settlement things have messed up a bit.
Although, did you skip anything earlier, as I did? Some quests you have to do in a certain order or later on weird stuff happens, made worse by consoling your way through issues (I did that) :)

I did the same thing this play-through and didn't have any trouble. I didn't even go to the police station before Prydwen arrival. I think if you play through a few missions to the point where the area might reset, you might get it back. Or maybe download a mod that changes the Prydwen somehow. Good luck. :smile:

Thanks for reading.

had this happen to me on my xbox a while back and i guess it's a fairly common issue. looking at the fallout wiki, i saw that the vertibird may spawn on the beach below the prydwen for some reason.

The game mixes up the vertibirds some times. Take a look around the camp. Somewhere may be a lonely vertibird which will bring you back to the prydwen, and from then on everythins normal. Its just a hickup in sorting out all the flying crap. Even a BOS-Airfield-Officer can have a bad day.

Thanks for chiming in, guys! As of writing it's still missing, but one of my mods, Vertibird Faction Paint schemes, just updated claiming to fix a or some "missing vertibird" so fingers crossed that might do the trick. When I'm playing I always do a couple BoS quests before entering Diamond City. Danse's Arc-Jet mission and the first quest Rhys provides as it's always at the College Square, Halen's first quest if it's nearish and The Lost Patrol.

 

I do have a mod that changes the Prydwen, A Sensible Prydwen Overhaul, but it only changes one of the interior cells, is it called the main deck? Adds improved sleeping quarters, with an area for squires, adds changing rooms with lockers and showers. In my earlier uses of this mod the vertibird was not missing.

 

And I agree, SharraShimada, BOS-Airfield-Officers can have those days :laugh:

the update for Vertibird Faction Paint Schemes did it! I can now board the Prydwen without fast travel or use of signal grenades. Case closed it would seem.

 

Take care, people.
