Firefly replied to crackjackx's topic in The Outer Worlds: Technical Support (Spoiler Warning!)THANK YOU @crackjackx !! It worked!!! Don't Bite the Sun and Friendship Due both were still showing Botched after 1.2 patch. I followed @crackjackx suggestion from PD Support of returning to the ship, hitting Parvati with a Melee weapon (and shot gun just to be sure). She did not move towards ladder like they said she would, then I talked to the computer, then exited the ship and chose BOTH Parvati and Felix as companions and boom, both of their quests were unbotched. I'm on X-box one. I didn't reinstall, clear the cache or go back to an earlier save...I just continued from an autosave. I hope this works for others having the same issue.
I emailed firstname.lastname@example.org about how the latest patch did not fix this quest and Friendship's Due and explained how Pavariti is still alive and I can talk with Cyde, yet I am unable to continue these quests because it's still saying they are botched. I never asked them to complete the quest for me or modify a save file. Are they saying that the developers released a patch that only works if you restart a game that you have invested 30+ hours in?? Here is their response: "Thank you for contacting us! I'm sorry to hear that you ran into the dead companions issue. Now, although this issue has been addressed with the latest patch (in the sense that it should not be happening again), we unfortunately do not have the ability to retroactively complete the quest for you or anything of the sort, as our tools do not allow us to tinker with a user's save file. I apologize for the inconvenience. If there's anything else I can help you with, please let me know. All the best, Andrei Private Division Support"
This is such a brilliant game and it's a shame that the patch did not fix two massive game breaking issues. Don't Bite the Sun and Friendship's Due are still botched on the Xbox1. I don't remember Parvati ever dying and I can still talk to her and take her on missions. I was able to speak to to Clyde Harlow and agreed to help even the the quest still shows as botched. I had hoped that talking to Clyde would force the quest to continue but it is still showing as botched. Are there plans to address the botched missions in the next patch or are these quests just not fixable? Can we please have transparency regarding these issues as I don't want to waste time completing the game in a broken state or waiting for fix that might never come. Thank you for your help.
