Thanks :).

I just tried what you suggested about cancelling the mission, but it turns out the game disallows you from canceling mainline missions in story mode.

Looks like Agnes is joining us on our trip out west.

Edit: But when we get to the dam, Rol won't procede with the quest because "seems like you're on a quest already. Come back when you're done/". So, I can't finish the Rol quest until after I've finished the Agnes quest, but I can't finsish the Agnes quest until after I finish the Rol quest :/

So, I guess that's it for this save. I'll have to check if I have a save from before I accepted the second quest.

Edit again: Except that Rol is now staying behind at the transmission pillar, which means I CAN finish the Agnes quest. :)

Planet Explorers General Discussion / Thoughts on the player-character.
« on: December 18, 2017, 01:19:15 PM »
I've been thinking about the player-character, how they seem to have no specialized skills or abilities, a slaker ("didn't you pay attention in colonization class?" / "I thought you'd never ask, since you were never interested in learning back on the ship") and worst of all, is a total **** (demanding of Carter "what's in it for me, old man" before agreeing to a quick escort to save Gerdy's live immediately after crash-landing? Are you serious)?

And yet, somehow, this least-skilled, among-the-least-diplomatic people on the mission ends up taking the most significant leadership role of any of the colonists.

I've been thinking that it would make a lot more sense if the PC was a) not an ****, and b) A diplomacy specialist. This would make the PC the logical person for trying to reconcile (worse than originally feared) differences between the Earthlings and Martians, and the (totally unexpected) communication and negotiation with the natives. This would make the additional leadership roles the PC takes on beyond this (e.g. founding a colony) to make much more sense, as an extension of the job they were already doing.

Hey! Just came back to the game after several years away, looking forward to seeing how the story has continued since I last played :).

I'm running into a problem. I did things in (I guess?) a weird (or at least unexpected?) order, so Rol is with me and Agnes at the lake. I place the lure, the big fish comes -- and Rol shoots it dead   :-\

The orange circle moves to the underwater cave, but going there doesn't trigger the next part of the quest with the fish dead.

Right now, I think the only thing I can do is bring Agnes along to the way-out-west desert quest, and once Rol parts company, then come back and do the lake. Is there a less extreme way that I can un-break this?



Edit: Added spoiler tags to the title. Not sure what the standard is for what needs spoilers, but better safe than sorry :)
