Goat Simulator
Unobtainable achievements and uncompletable quests and other bugs.
(please delete my identical thread in General Discussion, it wasn't supposed to go there)
A number of the achievements, quests, and other things are broken.
1. "Car Accident" quest in the Goat Bay does not work. I get hit by those cars driving down the road, but the resulting 20 points lists no source. Trucks work fine, it reads those, but it doesn't read those cars as capable of inflicting "Hit by a car".
2. "Manual 3 times in a combo" quest in Goat Bay does not work. No matter how many times I manual, no matter what combos are applied, with or without slowmo, the counter 0/3 does not increment.
3. "GoatBuilt" achievement is broken. Getting to the top of the obstacle course and gathering the collectible does not trigger it at all.
4. "Builder Goat" achievement (find all the blocks) appears to be uncompletable. I have scoured the Bay map, and only one cube appears to exist, located in the Graveyard behind the windmills. I have, however, located two identical golden crown hats, one in the alley beside Capra Bar and Grill, and the other on a pedestal in the Art Gallery. The location of the alley crown in particular suggests to me that it is not supposed to be a crown. Likewise, on the original map, there is a gold crown sitting in someone's garage, I think it's the Treadmill garage. Were these supposed to be blocks? (I think this is an issue given that I searched the heck out of the entire map and found nothing but some random gold crowns plus the graveyard cube)
5. Get turned upside-down while riding a Longboard, and your goat and your camera will clip through the floor. Removing yourself from the longboard via R will send the longboard flying off due to physics. This can also be used with a bicycle to clip yourself through various walls.
6. The roof in the two-story interior house in Goat Bay is not collisioned properly from below. By jumping, you can pass through the roof and land on top of the walls. This also applies to the roof just inside the shop display window that contains the walker statue and mini UFO; you can jump above that to find that the display window is literally the only thing in the entire structure.
7. Goat Bay: The gold goat statue atop the spinning carnival ride can only be seen and collected for half of any given full circle.
8. Several missions appear to be missing from the original map's quest list (although I could be wrong, I thought there was a mission for collecting every statue).
9. The "It's a trap!" score bonus appears to be broken on the original map (however, this needs to be tested without using a buggy workshop goat, as the script has proven uncooperative in the past).
10. Goat Bay: The Graveyard Monster Goat NPC has problems when ragdolled; specifically, the head winds up lagging a massive distance behind the body.
11. The Valkyrie achievement cannot be obtained. No special results are noted when using the catapult with a rider. This has not been tested using a goat with ONLY a rider and no other mutators.
12. When any NPC breaks glass by running into it at full speed, even when I had nothing whatsoever to do with it, all the other NPCs scream and run away from me.
13. Goat Bay and Original Map: Many objects use the wrong object names. Breaking apart the two food stands outside the hotel and licking the resulting wooden debris tells you that you "Licked N/A". Licking the ferris wheel's seats will tell you that you "Licked Missing Name". Licking any of the three boats will tell you that you "Licked Armchair". Licking the large dresser in the trash strewn behind the building with all the basketballs on the roof will tell you that you "Licked Painting".
14. Goat Bay: The money dropped as debris after wrecking one of those two food stands cannot be used in the Hat Shop.
15. Goat Bay: The hillside leading up to the big wooden ramp (near the skate park blue area and the crashed UFO) has a ton of shadows across the ground that appear to indicate the presence of trees. However, most of the hillside itself is completely barren.
16. Goat Bay and Original Map: In many places, the physical appearance of the map does not match the collision. I constantly find myself phasing through the ground or unable to enter empty space. Many of the gravestones in the Pet Cemetary lack collision, but a few have proper collision. The hotel has countless balconies that cannot be touched. I'm not sure if this is caused by some sort of incompatibility with better physics settings or what.
17. When I suffer a particularly nasty framerate drop, I'm awarded points and everyone screams for no reason.
18. Goat Bay: The goat statue beside the hotel (the big stone goat statue) completely lacks collision.
19. Goat Bay: Nothing special happens when I hit the helicopter with a boulder of death. Nothing special happens when I hit a car with the boulder of death either, which is probably related to the whole 'cars dont count as cars for the car accident in goat bay' thing.
20. Cause unknown, but licking a walking NPC under certain circumstances will attach your tongue to him but not ragdoll him, causing your tongue to be extended obscenely far to keep up with him until he trips and ragdolls on his own (or until you beat the stuffing out of him).
21. Goat Bay: Several of the "goats" (stuffed dolls) in the Carnival appear to have phantom copies that cannot be seen, but can be licked (and if you're an italian dinosaur goat, eaten).
22. Original Map and Goat Bay: This bug has persisted since previous versions. Several propane tanks are "doubled"; there are two propane tanks occupying one space at the same time, and bumping into or licking one will reveal the double. The barrels beside the topmost platform in the Skate Park on Goat Bay are also doubled.
23. Original Map: The addition of Goat Bay appears to have changed one of the lamp designs on the original map. What were formerly black ornate lamps are now white ornate lamps. I'm not 100% certain on this one.
24. Licking a certain crinkled soda can in the trash heap beside the Pawn Shop will cause you to lick an invisible soda can that is apparently physics-spazzing. The crinkled soda can cannot be picked up as a result.
25. Goat Bay: NPCs can and will trigger the Jackpot achievement if left alone long enough. (either that, or Jackpot has nothing to do with the slot machines)
26. Humans will release bubbles from their mouths if the game reads the human as 'underwater'. This happens regardless of whether or not the HEAD is underwater. On certain ramps, this can result in the bizarre spectacle of a person apparently drowning in air.
27. Ambient bird noises are read as Voices by the game, so if your voice volume is high compared to the other two volumes (so you can hear what people are saying) the bird noises are deafening.
28. Goat Bay: There is a vase in the 'china shop' that is a white recolor of the tornado statue. This may lead to some confusion. Also, I strongly suggest a score bonus for trashing the place called "Goat in a China Shop".
29. Goat Bay: In the trash strewn behind the building with the basketballs on the roof, it is possible to become trapped against the building wall due to a bizarre indent there.
30. Race (compete in a race) quest is broken. I competed in a race and received nothing.

I can confirm Valkyrie, Goatbuilt, and Builder Goat (to my knowledge nobody has been able to locate the wood block, and the dirt block being where the wood block was in beta leads me to believe the wood block is no longer available) being broken.

Scratch Builder Goat, I just found the wood block and got the achievement.

Would you guys mind posting screenshots of your cube locations in the current game? I've scoured the entire map and I've found nothing, and I'm wondering if it's maybe a problem with my copy in particular.

Cobblestone is in the graveyard
Woodplank is across the water from the blue side heading away from the rollercoaster, right against the thick tree.
Dirt is up the hill from the blue skate(?) park, up the hill from the "goal" that is farther from the road.

Also Jackpot has nothing to do with the slot machines. There is a house with a green house and tramploline that has a pot that has the work Jack written on it. It is on the second floor in a bedroom, Lick it for the Jackpot!

On the original map, the G2 robot dissapears as soon as it hits the ground, not sure if this is just my game.

I'm really surprised that no one said this already, but for most of these, you should probably take a look at the game's description, I don't doubt you when you say that some of them have been around for a while. On the other hand, for getting stuck, you can just use the respawn button in the menu - that's what it's for, it won't take away your abilities or reset anything. However, I too find the impossible quests or whatever they're called annoying, no matter what I do, the manual three times one will only go to 1/3, even though I had to do way more than that to get the manual hard quest. In addition, I get the grappling tongue quest in goat village... -_- and quite a few others that shouldn't be there, and vice versa for goat bay.

For "Manual 3 times in a combo" You have to do a manual with over 100+ points or something.
Then headbutt (lick, ect) something, and do another manual with 100+ points ect.
(You gotta do (headbutt, lick, ect) anything that resets the timer, and gives points)
  • Some quest also show up in the wrong area. (Or ONLY in the wrong area)
  • Goatville
    "Race" And "Ride on a board" Only show in Goatville. But should be in Goat City Bay.
    And CAN'T BE COMPLETED! No other quest show up there that can't be completed there.
    (You can do the race in Goat City Bay, but noting will happen)

  • I'll update what the wrong quests that show up in Goat City Bay are
    When I get the time to test it. But it seems like the "Get hit by a car" is one
    (You can get hit by cars. But no prompt for the "car accident"
    You can still beat the quest though. Since it also shows up in Goatville,
    and is completable there)
As for the achievements I haven't run into anything not unlocking yet.
(Though there are many i still need to get)

I also agree on that getting stuck is not really a problem.
