Hi, so I'm not really sure how to ask or phrase this. But in my game, quests seem to have stopped working. I went to some places like the Lukowski Cannery where I should normally get a quest, and nothing happens. I don't get any quest updates. I checked the console, and the console says the quest is running, but I don't see it in my pip-boy. Is this a common bug, and is there a solution to this?

 

I've tried a few different things, stopping the quest and starting it again, resetting it in console, none of them worked. I also don't get the 'Board the vertibird' notification anymore when I throw a signal grenade down... So my main questions are:

 

1. What's causing this and

2. Can this be fixed? If so, how?

 

Thanks

Quest got quest scripts; which have vars (it's like storage of numerical data or yes/no answers to things).  Sim Settlements is the only one I know that would produce that many.  Baka ScrapHeap  Baka ScrapHeap was the solution for too many Sim Settlements.  Though now we got Canary which let's us know when the save game goes corrupt basically.  Also PC Gamer has a run down the console commands, maybe you could fix it.  Since FO4 launched, I've had to start over 100 times or more.  I'm usually the one that broke the game, but I always try to fix it.  When I can't fix it, I ditch it.  Steam can make backup installs of games, and can even backup game data.  Backup and Restore games is in the top left file menu, it say Steam.

 

 

Face Menu, Looks Menu, ect.  Will make a .json of  your character, what they look like.  That allows us to move characters through a bunch of different builds of the game.  It's just as important as making a clean savegame right at the end of the tutorial or after it, a save game with no mods.  FO4 I use right before I exit V111.  I keep the BAK content (the backup copy, the BAK) where I can't lose it.  So I've probably used mine 100 times already, but I played that same character for 5 years now.  Most of it is simulated time.  I'm not in the game, I just imagine the character getting fat while they watch TV or eat cheesecake for 2 months.  I make a new build of the game, and try to play the character like it was one huge story.

1. Most likely it's caused by a mod (it may be a very resource-hungry mod but not necessarily)..

2. Option one: disable all mods, launch the game and see if it helped. Option two: start a new game with ONLY THOSE mods you can trust (this requires some research unfortunately...). Option three: try to alter the "resource allocation" of Fallout 4. (To run scripts "faster").

 

I'd choose Option two or three. Good luck.
