View Full Version : Divine Retribution issue - contains spoilers

31-12-2012, 05:31 PM
I have done up to the deliver 6 miner ships, the mission was completed.
That was around day 2, i'm now at 5days and 10hrs and the mission has not continued.
The Trading dock in Holy Pathway has "The Holy Light" with the goner pilot docked at it.
I wasn't aware there was a problem until I seen that sector 611 was involved with this plot, 611 is where I have my shipyard and eq dock and also where some of my fleet hangs out.
The picture in the following thread should help

Not got quite that far yet, but will be sure to comment on my experiences with this mission. 611 is very much a Xenon sector in my game.


02-01-2013, 06:06 PM
I have the same situation. I delivered the 6 miners 2 days ago and the mission never continues.
Maybe it's becasuse the Sector 611 in my game was taken by Kha'ak? What should I do to continue this plot?

The mission isn't reliant on Sector ownership - it should continue no matter who owns the sector.

I can't see anything obvious in the code that would stall the plot.

If someone could upload a CLEAN - i.e no additional scripts or mods - game save where this issue has arisen it will be a big help in finding and fixing the bug.

Mission: Devine Retribution
Chapter: Into the Unknown
Scipts: no additional, clean XTC install

After the paranid contacted me a second time I had to transport Tomes Selek to the Goner Trading Post located in Bean. Tomes left my ship and said that I have to wait until he is ready at the Paranid Trading Dock in Primeval Seas. Then he boards his own ship "Penatron", but he doesen“t leave Bean.

- Tested two ships to transport Tomes from Holy Pathway to Bean. Doesn“t work.
- Locking into sector Primeval Seas -> Xenon ripped the Paranid Trading Dock -> loading old save before picking up Tomes -> killing almost all Xenon and waiting for a new Paranid Trading Dock -> then picking up Tomes.... Doesn“t work. He allways boards his ship and cannot find the starting button ;)

Here is one of my saves, no scripts and yes i'm a chronic nividium dealer :)

The split plot hasn't started even though I have met the requirements for a long time.

Hello and thanks for this great mod and your effort.

I have done up to the deliver 6 miner ships, the mission was completed....
Same here I think.
Bought 6 miner with shields, added jumpdrive and let them jump to 1716. After batteling the Xenon and waiting for the miners to reach there beacon, the High Priest contacts me and the mission seemed to end normally.
Now waiting for about 3 1/2 ingame hours but the High Priest doesn“t contacts me. If this isn“t long enough, I“m sorry.

If someone could upload a CLEAN - i.e no additional scripts or mods - game save where this issue has arisen it will be a big help in finding and fixing the bug.

I have tried to follow the "Divine Retribution" series of missions (the one that begins with the collection of Tamettiksarat from the Pirate Base) but have reached a point where I am completely stuck and unable to proceed. This is what I've done so far:-

1. Collect Tamettiksarat from the Pirate Base and deliver him to the Gonor Trading Port in Bean.
2. Go with Tomes to Sector 1716 and 1718 and survey the asteroids. There's an extra section where you're asked to provide TS-class miners for a series of asteroids marked by your escort Tomes earlier in the mission.
3. Go with Tomes to Sector Sonora and explore.
4. Take the distress call to rescue Tamettiksarat from an incident in Aldrin.
5. Take Tamettiksarat back to the Gonor Trading Port in Bean.

All the above seems to work without major hitches. Then it gets weird. You reach a part of the thread with the title "Diplomatic Solutions". You're told that some form of peace talks have been worked out. You ask if they will be in neutral territory and are told no, they will be in Sirius III at the OTAS Shipyard. You are also told that when you jump in to the sector, you have to stay very close to the escort craft or you will be attacked...

6. Jump to Sirius III . I can't seem to find a similar approach with this later stage in the mission thread.

Any suggestions anyone?

Oh, one other thing. When I approached the Argon escort in Sirius III for the first time, my turret guns opened fire. I reset the mission and checked to ensure that the "Command for all Turrets" was "None" [which it was].
Repeated the process and my ships weapons opened fire again, without my asking them to.
Restarted the mission, only this time I actually uninstalled the weapons before I jumped to Sirius III.
The turrets mysteriously re-stock themselves with their HEPTS and cheerfully open fire...

"But your Honour, I didn't even pull the trigger, [I]honest!"

If you say "with spoilers" please mark the text passages in spoiler tags. Especially for users who don't want to know what they have to do and where ingame.

^ aha same here

12-01-2013, 09:39 PM
I am on like 4th or 5th stage of leviathan plot and stuck with same problem above.... maybe the priest is on vacation with some lovely ladies and doesn't want to return.
or more likely, an extra zero bug (or a few) for time delay to get next step.

13-01-2013, 01:27 PM
if more saves to compare are needed i'd also be happy to provide mine

14-01-2013, 02:08 PM
has anyone been able to complete this plot? I finished the total leviathan plot since this one didn't advance.

25-01-2013, 09:19 AM
Fixed for next patch.

What was your rank with the Argons when you started this part?

26-01-2013, 07:50 AM

I am sorry that I don't remember precisely, but it was either Marshall or Guardian. I suspect the latter. I have spent most of my game time working on my Argon race rank, primarily because I want to buy a Leviathan at some point. For that reason I have ploughed back trading profits into having sector traders in all good Argon sectors, and spending personal flight time working on things like pirate bases in Argon sectors. So it's not been at all difficult to get a reasonable race rank quite quickly. Except, of course, progress slows massively as you get to the higher ranks...

29-01-2013, 08:27 AM
Fixed for next patch. Do we need to start a new game or patch will fix that bug in plot in existing game?

29-01-2013, 08:54 PM
I have the same problem. In my game Tomes has been sitting 5K from the Goner trading post with his breaks for the 14hours, in the meantime the Xenon have demolished Primeval Seas, been beaten back then wiped out the sector again!
Does anyone know at what point having the trading post in Primeval Seas destroyed breaks the plot.
Edit: Tried a reload from before the request to return to H P Trading post (the Taxi run back to Goner Trading post), cleared Primeval Seas, waited for the sector to recover then start the run again. Even after 10game hrs, he still just sits 5k from the Trading post!

Iirc the issue (Paranid plot interrupts) is known and will be fixed in the next patch.

13-02-2013, 10:15 PM
First time before i restarted (both times The Quest start so doing paranid side) The Divine Retribution plot hung after delivering the mining ships.

However second time around - after clearing Sector 611 and it becoming unknown the plot continues with Tomes contacting you in whatever sector you are in after about 20 mins

edit: spelling & getting spoiler tags to work

14-02-2013, 10:38 PM
the issue with docking at OTAS and the Argon Escorts was easily overcome by using an unarmed but fully shielded M7 - just once you start following the lead escort vessel stay about 3km back from it as it becomes the ONLY vessel that will shoot at you all the way to OTAS - the rest of the escort ships wont (disclaimer atleast in my game) - when the lead escort is about to dock you get permission to dock

same problem here, cleared all xenon in both sectors before doing this quest, after delivering the 6 miners the quest is stuck and he never contacts me again.
Whats the reward for this plots btw? Id like to know what I'm missing out on.

14-12-2013, 08:54 PM
I'm stuck here from few days and 611 is cleared (there was only a shivan base or whatever his name)

playing X-TC-Xtended 2,2a from a week

My mission stuk after send the 6 miner to the location,
nobody call me back again after this
