PostSubject: Cube quest - Stuck   Sat 5 Jan 2019 - 21:17

Just got in the Scientist's apartment and sent a "CUBE FOR SALE" message, the mercs answered they want a meeting and nothing more, got back to swamp to talk to shadows and he tells me nothing, something's missing? If not, there's a info portion to go on in the quest? confused

Unfortunately the soul cube quest is bugged at the moment. I looked in the game files, and the lines that used to spawn the NPCs have been commented out. Possibly whatever was intended to replace them was accidentally omitted from a recent patch.

Workaround:

I think i'll wait a future fix, this quest is mostly optional right?

It is optional in that (as yet, anyway) it isn't part of the main story. The cube does reappear later in the game in another 'side mission',

but I don't know if that still happens if you don't find it in the first place.

After picking up the diary there is an exchange of messages with Shadows ending with Shadows telling MO to send the message "CUBE FOR SALE". When this is sent the Mercs reply that they will be waiting in Cordon (I can't remember the exact wording). Two Werewolves and a Librarian spawn, but nothing else.

Hi, was wondering? I've already gotten up to the part of the story where the storm has started to subside, my question is; what am I suppose to do now, is there a quest I'm suppose to do, or something I need to be looking for ( find Ax?) or is that basically the end until more content is added?
Thanks

I hit a stuck on that too, as I wrote and had no reply. after sending the text, - Cube for sale, the quest go's dead, no one in East Pripyat, just a dead city.

I had to go into the Esc-S file, and set it to dune, this guy, as I'm doing zip. His still standing in the swamp picking his nose, and staring at it.

I seem to have problems posting. I gave as a spoiler the correct text for the Soul Cube message, which was a bit longer, typed on the right function word processor in MO's pda, and sent as an SMS which showed up as there but has now disappeared?
The text was from Grimwald's videos number 287, and 1 minute 40 seconds in. It is in reads:
Soul Cube Message:
 

It shows as upper case fonts.
I used a magnifying glass for it seems to me that maybe some punctuation is called for between 'shadows' and 'the cordon' but this was hard to see on a 10 inch screen

The text was shortened recently to make it easier to enter correctly. You now only need to type "cube for sale". No need to type in caps, the game automatically produces the message in caps.

As mentioned earlier, there is currently a problem with this task, in that there are no NPC spawns after the message is sent, so currently it can't be completed. TecnoBacon is aware of it and is working on a fix.

Thanks pchester for letting me know. When you say no NPC spawns, do you mean where the soul cube is actually collected, or just the mercs for whether the message was sent or not meant at one time just a tougher battle with more mercs, rather than tricking them to disperse? It is strange how, it worked okay, 3 years ago but now fails. Computer processing seem to be like a minefield to me, and I trust that TB will as usual find his way through for us. Regards, TrueB.

It was working until some time last year, when (I assume) something in a patch had this unforeseen side effect. Unfortunately this will always be a possibility with a game as long and involved as this one. It is very difficult to work out the interrelations between events - other than by us playing the game and reporting any issues.

Anyway, sending the message should start a chain of events.
Spoiler:
 

The problem is that the friendly NPCs aren't spawning, so none of the subsequent spawns happen either.

Thanks, pchester,
The cube used to come in handy for retiring rooms full of baddies, and more useful for killing certain 'immortals' so worth getting things ready, for when the mission is debugged by TB, imo. Regards, TrueB.

If I recall correctly, kaplumbaga, there is a Soul Cube mission in Level 1 or higher. The only Soul Cube task in level 0, is the Shadows version as far as I know.
