thermos bug

Postby androot » Sat Jan 13, 2018 6:31 pm

Hi, all.
During the hunt for Red's thermos after sniffing it and talking to Frank the thermos didnt appear in my inventory. Why? Can I spawn it with console?

Thank you in advance

After you talk to Frank, he should just let you take it without beating you up.

It's not a dialog option, after you tell Frank its not alcohol, click on the thermos again and choose the Take option.

There is this funny thing I retreaved the thermos before and was quite surprised she asked me for it again. However her first quest was different. I had to ask Frank what I could take from the cabinet so I took the thermos and gave it back to Rachel.
Now I have another mission which involves shiffing the said thermos.

Anyway, it seems like a bug. There is no thermos around...

Perhaps you're thinking of the thermos vs. the flask vs. the empty bottle? There are multiple items in the game which are either inspected first, or filled up first with something before talking to a character (or, after...).

Alright. I am having no luck reproducing this in our dev environment. You could try deleting your Original Story folder in:

C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\Documents\Eek\House Party\Mods\Stories\Original Story

Then let the game redownload and repopulate the story folder and its files, and start a new game. Once in awhile we see evidence of folks having their story files corrupted somehow so this could be it. I will keep looking into it on our end.
