Hi all, (Playing on Xbox) My engineer outposts have stopped generating points on the mission Beyond tomorrow. I have six or seven outposts built. A couple have generated 15% and the other two got up to 8 or 9% and just stopped. Its been over a week in game time and none of the four percentages have progressed.

A few requests,

1, Could we have better definition of sector boundaries on the world map. The thin white line is difficult to see in certain situations.

2, When selecting specialists on the world map with the "Y" key, would it be possible for the camera to ALWAYS focus/move to the specialist? It seems to happen automatically happen if the specialists are scavenging or fighting but doesn't happen if travelling to a location. Constantly chasing the waypoint line is a pain in the you know what.

3, Could we have a brighter cursor on the world map or an option in settings to apply our own colour?

Loving the game. Got in at early access and it has matured in to a great tile.

Many thanks. x

Heya!

Is the Main Quest notification advising you to continue with the quest? The accumulation of different % will stop every now and then until you continue forward with the quest - this should be visible from the red background on the top bar where the % are shown :)

I've also gone through your suggestions and forwarded to the rest of our team - no promises or guarantees, but we'll consider them!

Hope the info helps with progressing with your game, thanks for your post and of course, thank you for playing!

I have the same issue. Mine is glowing red, I am told to build an engineering post, but I already have 8, and I can't continue no matter how many engineering posts I build, and the information is not accruing because it's stopped until I build one. I don't know how to progress.

@Sir Leningrad Have you built an engineer outpost to the correct type of biome? I believe at least one point in the quest states "Build an engineer outpost to the Wasteland biome" - if you hover around the World Map without anything selected, a small panel should appear to the bottom right of your screen that shows the Sector Info - this panel shows the Biome of each sector so using this you should be able to find a Wasteland biome and the quest should then continue.

If you are certain that you have done this, please attach your save here so that we can take a look! You can find it from:

Documents\Paradox Interactive\Surviving the Aftermath\SaveGames

on your PC - you should be able to simply attach it to this thread :)

Hi Joanna,

I didn't notice that you could access the percentages bar. I've now completed the instructions to go to a Wasteland biome and the game is progressing again. Fantastic.

Many thanks for your response. x

HI!
After finished alls the achievements , I was totally blocked in the main quest with the stopping of the ingeneers outposts....
So .. I took an old save , just before i have beginninng the quest ...all was quiet still the famous ingeneers post to build in the Wastelands..
I play with the french langage and "zone stérile contaminée" was not the good translation because alls the biomes have the name in french for Wasteland translation ...
So ..I put the game in english and finally put the outpost in the good place !!
So .. i don't know for the others language but I have understood why , i was blocked before now!
After no more troubles to finished the others quests still the end ....
I hope to be enought clear ...english was ,of course, not my native langage..
just another question : the price of the DLC was the same price that original game ?? really ??

Ok, perhaps it was a phrasing thing, and now I solved it. In spanish it says "en un bioma del yermo", wich literally translates as in a biome of the wasteland. Thus it creates confusion and it looks as if everything was wasteland and you can choose wich biome. The proper way to specify would be "en un bioma de tipo yermo", wich means in a biome of the wasteland type. Including this correction in english would also help understand better the instructions, because if you haven't been paying attention to what types of biome there are, and since this is a postapocalyptic scenario, it would seem like evrything that sorrounds you is some tipe of wasteland, as in "deserted uninhabited radiated land", if you know what I mean.

Now I'm stuck with phase 2 of the project

@Oakey Glad to hear! And no problem at all - let me know if you have any other questions or problems!

@Wuik @Sir Leningrad Thank you for letting us know! We've had to use external translators for most of our game as we do not have any native Spanish or French speaking people in the company, so these sort of things are practically impossible for us to see! And of course our translators only work with what they have. I will bring this up with our team and hopefully we can get it clearer on all languages!

Also - Sir Leningrad - are you stuck as in cannot proceed at all or just waiting?

So, I have the same problem. My Project Tomorrow % are at 11, 13, 12, 13, and I have definitely got one of each. It's been at those numbers for a few days.

If I read correctly, you're saying that in addition to the 4 x biome types (life support, medicine, defense, ecosystem), there's an additional wasteland one, which isn't marked? I'll have another look, but this threw me for this past week.

I'm so confused by this. I'm looking for this 'Wasteland Biome' by following this and nothing.

th
It works as described ... in the world map have nothing selected with the cursor. Hover the cursor over any sector then look at the lower right of the screen, a dialog titled Sector Info. In that panel is a line Biome. Keep moving the cursor until you see "wasteland" in that line. The ground will also be brown, dirt coloured.

I posted about this yesterday, didn't see this thread before, but the information here doesn't add up. I already have several engineer outposts in wasteland biomes. It says build any type, meaning one should be enough, and that there isn't a special variety for this step (I only see the four initial ones as options).

Quick edit: so I tested, and it kicked in when I built a new outpost in a wasteland biome without any of the four resources to gather. That is very counterintuitive.

@ZX9000 So this part of the quest requires you to build a new one after the step has become active - having the outposts there before the step will not help complete this step, it has to be a new one in the Wasteland biome. Glad to hear that you were able to continue with the quest though!

@Fox Emerson Were you able to continue with your quest? Or are you still stuck?
