0.10.4 Unhelpful and unfriendly NPCs [RESOLVED]

Post by Mordoth » Sat Aug 03, 2019 12:57 am

My High Elf did nothing wrong. No matter where I go and to whom I talk to, I can't get any information. People everywhere despise me for no reason. I tinkered with save files to get higher rep, made a "Charm Spell" and used console commands. People now greet me very friendly but as soon as I ask a question they want me to go to hell.
What's going on?

Have you checked your status? Did you do any quests involving killing someone? Are you using any mods?

A save game would be handy to inspect what's happening. Note that a low personality and regional rep can influence this. Details on finding saves are below.

Also, can you please confirm you're using version 0.10.3?

Thank you for your time. I am using the latest version.
Here is my most recent save.

Personality 15. We have our problem :lol: Your Etiquette and Streetwise are also at 6%, so they can't help you.

There are more mechanics at work, so I'd recommend reading this post by Interkarma.

Oh wow, that sucks. Thank you. How can I counter this? Can I modify some files or do I have to start over?

Your save information is in .txt format so it's very simple to edit. Look for a file called SaveData.txt in your save game. My character's stats are saved in this section:

Code: Select all

            "reflexes": "VeryHigh",
            "name": "Testman",
            "level": 1,
            "stats": {
                "Strength": 90,
                "Intelligence": 90,
                "Willpower": 90,
                "Agility": 90,
                "Endurance": 90,
                "Personality": 90,
                "Speed": 90,
                "Luck": 90
You can increase and decrease as you choose :)

Even with a reputation of 40 and no criminal record, Ian/Indigo couldn't get commoners to tell his character where to find people. Asking about building location worked much better (0.10.4)
