Invisible NPCs - 0.13.5 [modded]

Post by DotFX »

Hi!

I've been encountering this bug quite often recently. Random in-building NPCs models would just disappear after playing for some time, though I can still interact with them, if I point my cursor to their lower half or just the place where they should be standing. I'm playing with TravelOptions (no ordinary fast-travel, accelerated only). The bug fixes itself after restarting the game or traveling for long distances.

As far as google tells me, it's a common problem. My guess is it may be some sort of a memory leak, maybe. Not critical, just cumbersome.

Is there a guaranteed fix for this?

Hey there, welcome to the forums. :)

As far as I know this is related to mod "Vanilla Enhanced - Animated People". This problem should not happen in base game. There's an open issue on git that will hopefully yield a fix at some point - either in mod itself or with supporting changes in base game to prevent whatever interaction is occurring.

Thank you for the quick reply) Hopefully they will come up with something.

After reading what they say in the link, I think I had a problem of a similar nature in Godot engine (completely unrelated, i know). Basically, one of the scripts could not get executed because the whole code was proceeding faster then needed and the script in question just did not receive the data it required to run or something like that (that's how I explain it).
