Mission help...

Why doesnt it work?

I have a question... why don't my 2 Missions work? They appear to have the correct NCB tests... Here is the trail of bit sets... did I do something wrong? If you need anymore info... tell me.

Character:
NCB Set: b9998

Mission (Gender):
Offer: b9998
When the player accepts: !b9998 b9997 b9996
When the play refuses: !b9998 !b9997 b9996

(Not Working!!!) Mission (Male):
Offer: G & b9996
When the player accepts: !b9996 b9995 b9994

(Not Working!!!) Mission (Female):
Offer: !G & b9996
When the player accepts: !b9996 !b9995 b9994

The availability of a mission is evaluated either when you enter a system, or when you load the pilot.

I notice you have the mission to select the spouse's gender in the main spaceport, and the mission alerting the player to the villain's attentions in the bar. Set up this way, the player must encounter (and answer) the first to reach the second.

You could work around this limitation by rearranging the NCB's so that the second mission does not depend on the first, that is, that it will always be available to a starting Neko pilot.

This in mind, I don't see any pressing reason b9996 needs to be set by the first mission. It can be moved so that it is set by the Character, instead.

Character:
b9998 b9996

Mission (Gender):
Availability: b9998
Accept: !b9998 b9997
Refuse: !b9998 !b9997

Mission (Male):
Avail: G & b9996
Accept: !b9996 b9995 b9994

Mission (Female):
Avail: !G & b9996
Accept: !b9996 !b9995 b9994

The availability of a mission is evaluated either when you enter a system, or when you load the pilot.

Actually, it's not. It's evaluated when you land on a 'different' planet, which means either a different planet within the same system (e.g. if it was Earth, Mars or Europa), any planet after making a jump, or any planet after reopening the pilot file.

In other words, landing on a different planet in the same system without making any jumps also resets the availability. 😛
