If you're still wondering, just take your power armor off before fast traveling to the institute!

Welp, that solved it. Thanks gemini. Had to reload a save from 2 hours ago, took me a while and a lot of anger to power through, as i been fighting with the railroad questline for a good while, having a bug at bunker hill and other places too.

Thank you Gemini! Much frustration at my first fallout 4 bug has been nullified now :D Now to report the bug to Bethesda.
I definately need help. I'm stuck on the nuclear option. I already blew up the reactor in the institute, but when I get teleported with Maxum, I don't go to where Ingram and the little shaun are, I get teleported out of the institute where I can't fast travel or anything. Help. :/

I also help. I'm on "Nuclear Option" And I made my way to the institute but every time I try to go to the elevator that is supposed to go to the Director's quarters the door is open with no elevator to take me up.no matter how many times i try to call it down it never come. I tried everything in this form but nothing. PLEASE HELP!

Im having a similar problem with teleporting out of the Institute. Ive done the mission with and without power armor and it makes no difference. The platform I am meant to teleport on doesnt load so I fall to the ground. Im stuck on the ground where the map wont load all the way and when I try and go back to the platform, it still isnt there and I fall to the ground again. Fast travel wont work either, so I cannot get out of the area. Im stuck in a map that wont load all the way.

Gemini's solution worked for me! Take off your power armor before fast travelling to the Institute.

Weird bug. Hope they fix it in the next patch. But still, I'm really happy. 70 hours of gaming and this is the only bug I've hit. Fantastic game!

use this command!

movetoqt <questid>

to find the quest id you need to search for sqt :)

I've got the same issue and I tried messing around with some of the quest commands but none of them seem to help. If you go there without power armor, you're at stage 20 in the quest and the target is to talk to an NPC. (quest ID is INST306 FYI). If you go there wearing power armor, then it activates the next step of the quest, as though you talked to the NPC, but if you check the quest variables it says the quest is stopped and you are at stage 1500. I tried doing a movetoqt but there are no targets at this stage and setstage 20 doesn't do anything.

I'm not super familiar with all of the bethesda console commands so maybe there is something I'm missing that somebody could fill me in on, but I'm not gonna try this dang thing without my power armor.

I did the Railroad quest and it bugged on me i had no recent saves so how i got the quest back on line is this


1.) open console and type tcl
2.) fly up the elevator to the relay room.
3.) open console and type tcl again (make sure your above solid ground when you do)
4.) kill the people there till mission complete flags
5.) open Console and type tcl
6.) fly back down elevator once back down to spawn in location type tcl again once over solid ground.
7.) go to reactor room once at the reactor all the npcs should respawn and quest goes on from there on as normal.
8.) I did all this with my power armor on. I was not gonna watch it blow up with institute.


Hope this helped.
