[spoiler] keeps killing the [spoiler] before I can follow it
« on: December 17, 2017, 05:48:21 AM »

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 :)

Sorry, I don't think there is a way, other than to finish Rol's quest before going to the lake with Agnes.  In adventure mode you can dismiss (abandon) quest followers by entering a dungeon.  In story mode, I think you can go into the quest panel and abandon the quest there, but I wouldn't do it if you don't remember where you picked up Rol.  You will likely have to go back there to restart that mission.  Save before you try that, in case you can't find the spot again.

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. :)

There is another later quest for killing the beasts and collecting their remains.  They are very hard to hit in melee (like most fish) and projectile weapons don't work in water... but energy weapons do.  You can also lure them to the surface and then kill them from the shore with pistols/rifles/bows, if you don't have energy weapons available.

There is a cheat way get lots bullets and lots food.  This is before you have your own colony, you need not go too deep of the story, which you need sentry turrets machine gun the version doesn't run out ammo and the artillery turrets which all you need in total of 4-6 turrets.  If you go to the easy spot of puja (the one is very skinny aliens) in the forest, they will respawn which complete the quest of it is ok and will be fine, but once you complete the quest, you can have fun murdering them again in single mode by saving and load then saving again.  Which saving the game will keep your stuff in, and loading the game spawn the puja quickly before the day goes by which you will farm extremely fast. which you will collect 1k bullets with in half an hour and have tons and tons food from them, making it excellent about it, making that massive food to get ready making your own colony.
