Mummy Wrappings Quest Bug

Post by kingink » Thu Mar 05, 2020 10:25 pm

Using version: 10.20 Linux 64-bit

On completion of the mummy wrappings quest for the mages guild, the mummy wrappings quest item is not removed from inventory resulting in mummy wrappings permanently stuck in inventory.

(Err... Any console command to get rid of this thing?)

Save from before turning in quest included.

Thank you for save and version number! :)

This one is a known side-effect of how the quest is tombstoned (marked for deletion) for a time prior to actual expiration. When quests end, sometimes items need to stick around (e.g. Morgiah's wedding invitation) while other items need to disappear instantly (e.g. mummy wrappings). Unless the quest itself specifies, there's no universal way for the quest system to make that call.

The best way to fix this one would be to rewrite the success task in N0B00Y06 to remove the item at hand-in time:

Code: Select all

_reward_ task:
	toting _wrappings_ and _qgiver_ clicked 
	give pc _gold_ 
	take _wrappings_ from pc
	end quest 
On your side, the item will disappear within a few game days when the quest expires. Fast travelling some distance will tick this over faster.
