Is it a bug that the outside LTAM keeps producing Hydrokinetic Pumps without consuming any resources? (once the 95% finished pump from the game start is complete, it still keeps producing pumps)
1: I receive 5150 WCU instead of just 150 WCU when the Hesiod arrives for the first time. Is the additional 5000 a bug?
2: Buying spare parts from Phil doesn't add any to the outpost or player inventory. Buying food, minerals and polymers work normally, haven't tested plutonium.
Yes. Already fixed for next patch.So 'Titan Flight research' was the culprit.
It's a tantalising offer that is off limits for almost every build.Note that when 'buying' from the Hesiod I always max minerals and spare parts. I don't really understand why plutonium is offered as there's no way you can normally get the required funds.
Fixed in next patch.Cobalt Arsenide, apparently that's an infinite stack of ore
Good point. Added in next patch.Minor whining:
-refresh construction panel on entering outpost
Ah. Thanks. I noticed I didn't consider a couple of permuations of Karen's quests. You usually have a new option lined up before you finish the others. I will go through the whole chain again and fix any loose ends.-Some dialogue options remain available even though they have no use anymore. One example is the 'Do you have any assignments for me ?' question when talking to Karen. If I then use such a dialogue option, Communications immediately 'break down' (I'm thrown out of the conversation windows, directly back to the Outpost) and I'm stuck in the chair at the Comms panel. After pressing Esc and then clicking on 'Continue' my Character will be moved out of the chair.
That shouldn't happen, but it's probably related to the loose ends problem above.-When talking to Karen, her face isn't always shown in the conversation panel - instead I see a view on a couple of monitors.
Will fix.More whining:
-At the start of the game while you haven't used the Rover to explore yet, if you 'Set a Waypoint' for the Drone then Abaya Lacus (beside Feia Lacus and the Outpost) is listed as one of the available options, despite the fact that it's not (yet) shown on the map.
That's a bug, the cause is something completely unrelated. Will fix.Is it a bug that the outside LTAM keeps producing Hydrokinetic Pumps without consuming any resources? (once the 95% finished pump from the game start is complete, it still keeps producing pumps)
In the Base of the Chinese, I headed a level down to speak with the female Engineer Daxia . If I try to get up again to the main level, my character grabs the stair rails and shortly the buttons come up on the right, but then my character lets go of the stair rails again and I cannot climb up. Reloading the game resolves this. When walking throught he Chinese Outpost my character is prone to stopping and infinitely twirling around. This happens at other locations as well, like when getting back into the Rover, but at the Chinese base it's happening almost constantly.
Oops. That's a test flag, will fix.Trading with Yat-sen does not work. I get dropped out of the conversation window.
Van Hoorn never comes to the Outpost. When he says he's coming to Titan, that means he'll be orbiting it. His anti-IASA mission is triggered (at the earliest) after the mail on 12/8/2077 or the event at 5/6/2078, depending on what you did. You should get an email from him, after which you can contact him about it. You can get Ekta to join, but it's really difficult. Getting the best ending on that is probably one of the hardest things to do in the game, but it's not necessary at all.Some of the later missions don't seem to trigger (correctly), like 'Van Loon' coming to the Outpost or triggering his anti-IASA mission (cannot get Ekta to join in on that?!). I also wonder how helping out the Chinese should work. Clearly you're supposed to get something from their broken Rover (to fix the broken submersible), but they are no help in figuring things out.
What do you mean negative methane? Not enough to make the shipments? Or is the counter somehow showing negative numbers?I'm getting negative Methane, despite running 3 Drones and having 6 Methane Tanks by now.
I still get video crashes when talking to Val - this time when she's joined me at the Outpost.
Karl does have a followup when you've opened William's wallet. Have you read the data entry? The real followup comes later from another character, but you should be able to check in with both Karl and Karen about it. I'll double check.

That's great that you finished multiple runs.I have read the data entry and actually finished the game with the supercomputer in a few variants. I did get the conversation with the big boss at IASA, neural manifold stuff and so forth, but nothing from Karen or Karl. Val seems to be an issue as well. I already went through all 'terraform' research but she does not seem impressed. The same issue occurs with the explosives. I hacked the construction table and created a number of explosives but despite having them in my inventory, Val does not seem to notice.
Ah, I see. Will fix. Thanks.I think the waypoint issues caused Methane production to plummet so I did not have enough for the next shipment (5th or 6th, 2500 Methane or so) - which seemed to be much earlier than indicated. The negative number occurs after clicking Max in the freighter screen - the game will fill up the freighter despite not having Methane in storage and you get a leftover negative number.
Yes, Spare Parts should be more expensive now, but I forgot to commit that. As for the achievements, will fix in the next patch. I'm also working on a new tutorial right now, so that will probably land next week.Processing Spare Parts yields more Polymers than what's required to construct them ?! Also some achievements are not triggered, this applies to 'Level Up' and 'Methane Tycoon'. I finished the game with Jade and Val at the Outpost but still got the 'Only the lonely' achievement ?!
Thanks. I'll get on those ASAP. What do you mean with the cryovolcano dialog? The one you get by clicking on the 'ice sculpture' itself?
The save game issues sound bad. Usually that means that a value was stored in an old save game that is incompatible with the new version (I try to avoid that as much as possible and keep old save games compatible, but some things can't be helped.) But if you started a new game with this version, I'll have to dig a little deeper. I changed a few checks for Steam. Do you play with Steam online?
Oh and another larger one..
