Expedition doesn't dock at facility to finish
I don't get it. I have been playing this build for a while with no issues. Now, all of the sudden, when I get to the surface, abd send an expedition, everything is fine for going to the POI's, but when the Rover comes back to the facility, it doesn't "dock" properly or something. The people don't return from the rover, and the tech and seeds that I acquire sit in the Rover's inventory, and I can't access any of it. What's going on??

Does this issue persist after saving/reloading? I'm currently investigating this issue as it's been reported by some others, but have been unable to replicate the issue thus far.

Yes. I have tried reloading the saved game, restarting the game and reloading the saved game, and even rebooting my PC. I have at least two saved games that I can't complete because of this issue. Would those help? How can I get the saved games files to you?

Yes. Save game files that show the issue would certainly help. You can email them to info@mercuryfallen.com.

Ooooooooh...
Yeah, I had one of those, too. Extremely nasty, only way to solve it was to go back a couple of days and reload.

I have a hunch that it had something to do with me trying to fiddle around with the planned route after the expedition had already started. I don't remember exactly wat I had done - I think I had noticed that they were running lower on food than I was happy with, or running out of space for additional finds, or some such, and I tried to order them home before they had visited all their waypoints (*). Also, I'm not sure whether I hit "abort expedition" or tried it via "move to" and then "disembark", or even just stop them and give them brand new waypoints. Whatever it was - when they reached the base, they would refuse to disembark; Trying to abort the mission didn't help either, nor did attempts at having them start another mission. I don't know how many times I re-loaded and re-tried with different combos of "move to", "disembark", "abort mission" and whatever else I could think of.

The only thing that helped was re-loading a save from before I had fiddled retroactively with the mission parameters (which unfortunately was from WAY before).

(* Also, I might be misremembering things; it could also have been that, on the contrary, they were already headed home and I thought they were in good enough shape to tackle another waypoint or two; so I might have stopped them on their return trip, fiddled with the set of waypoints, and then had them continue the trip, only to have them refusing to disembark when they returned.)
