View Full Version : Is my game bugged? Lots of in-game issues (Screenshots)

My current save file seems to have a bunch of issues going on. Everything was fine until I started unlocking my Artisans.

1) My ships have this double arrow indicators on them, and when I mouse-over them I get a "Take Photo" text box. I don't have any pending quests to take photos of my ships.


2) I can no longer start my quests. If a quest is available and I click on the Yellow Star, the quest dialogue box pops up but nothing else happens. The quest isn't added to my quest book, and I don't get the usual prompt or instructions to start the quest.


3) I no longer get audio warnings about my ships being attacked, my expeditions needing my attention, newspaper is ready for editing, when fire breaks out, etc. They are added to the "Warnings" panel on the left, but no audio indicator when events happen. So my ships get attacked, or my expeditions need my attention, or my newspaper is about to be published, and I wouldn't know about it unless I look at the tabs on the left.

4) I cannot buy ships for sale from NPCs (Archibald or Isabel). I lost my command ship and want to buy a new one from one of them. The screenshot shows that the ship is for sale, but if I bring one of my ships to their harbor to make a purchase, I'm unable to click on the dollar sign.

Note: in the screenshot below, it might be grayed out because I have no ships currently in their harbor. It doesn't matter, I still can't buy them even if I bring my ship there.

I have tried restarting my PC, restarting the game, but the issues persist.

Hey Echo.exe,

I am sorry to hear you have encountered these issues.

These are known by the dev team and they are investigating.

For your issue with buying ships, does it let you if you click on the ship, then click off onto a different ship and go back to the original ship you clicked on to buy?

Thanks for your reply. Clicking on different ships for sale docked at the harbor doesn't seem to fix it. I think there was a Frigate or Clipper for sale along with the Imperial Command ship, but clicking on them didn't let me buy them. Note that I'm able to browse the NPC's store inventory and purchase items or goods normally. I just can't buy the ships.
