Hello all

I started a fresh campain and rand it all the day in order to get all Terminals in the same playthrough. (STEAM success )

I didn't get any offer to start Venture missions.
I maxed out GSO, GEOCORP and HAWKEYE but no Venture missions at all.
Tried several Trading Stations in various biome : No Venture.



Also noticed no venture tech around poping except only one Venture invasion. (at least with Venture blocks in it)

To DEVS : please explain game mecanics behind faction appearance triggering.
Then I will maybe remember what I've done wrong.

Many thanks in advance.

So essentially the "Race Against Time" mission never showed up at a trade station? (A GSO icon mission, like the first HE mission.) Should be at GSO level 3. (I've had no issue getting it.)

Did you try quitting and reloading the game to see if it would show up then? (If you did your entire playthrough in one session?)

OK I'm reloading now and see what's happening :

So first attempt in my base at Salt Flats, only GSO GEO CORP and HAWKEYE Missions, also in close mountains 1000m away.

So back to Grasslands and again no "race against time".

Then I decided to turn back to original position and then the closest Trading point gave me the "Race against Time" mission.
I don't think necessary to limit this mission only to starting area, correct ?

That's interesting - so it's as if got was locked to that first Trade Station... Is it possible that you'd seen the mission there and not taken it?

Not that that should cause any issue; it should be available anywhere, certainly I picked up mine many kilometres out, in interesting terrain.

i got venture, but no HawkEye.
The plot thickens... Can you provide a save file too? :)

Had both situations in successive plays. Both were loaded/reloaded several times Not sure where my start location would be (0,0?), so not sure if I can find the original Trade Station. In the current play I'm missing Haawkeye with near maxed Venture and maxed GSO/GC. I can provide the saves but both have been edited (I generally unlock the "Heart" and Dirt Wheels before they would unlock naturally).

OK, so I'm suspicious that SSundee may have a bug like this one, He spent virtually the whole of this episode searching for his next Craftier Business missions.


This should have been available to him (at GSO level 4) as Greg has told me previously, here:
Crafting missions are added to the available mission pool at various XP thresholds in GSO Grade 2&3 (as long as you've completed all the previous ones). The only one that's tied to a particular biome is the Auto-Miner mission, which needs to be in the Desert.
At least, that was what I assumed first of all, but maybe it was the first licence quest for Hawkeye (actually that might make more sense...). That was seen here with the first Hawkeye mission not showing for @Lurkingdaemon.

Different missing missions, but maybe the same bug, so advice may be to, (a):
[...] exit and restart the game which clears certain runtime caches.
Or (b): try returning to the origin, as @YAKFLY did. Maybe the mission was 'stuck' at a trading station there...?

Of course, given that he has a duplicating techs bug, I'd say it could be related to that, potentially... @Jamie, @Zeena, do you liaise with (big) YouTubers at all, regarding major problems they have? (I'm not sure any of this info could actually be helpful.)

While it is a possibility that all of Ssundee's towers have had a negative impact on quest generation were anyone capable of getting their direct attention and focus I would suggest the following to attempt to coax the Hawkeye license mission out of hiding.

1) return to 0,0
2) goto nearest trading station, if not present select any and all venture missions.
3) if still not present advance to GSO 5 and retry steps 1&2.

I'm not getting any Sgt. Smash Hawkeye missions and I've checked several mission boards. Feature or bug? I attached the save.

After getting Hawkeye 3 I finally did run across a Trading Station that offered the opening Sgt. Smash mission, then the trading stations I had been checking started offering the rest of them. There's 4 stations by my base I rotate through, and the trading station where I found the mission was way off my normal route.
