Red Doesn't Stay in Big Town after Being Rescued

Like the title says, after I've completed Big Trouble in Big Town, Red doesn't stay in her clinic instead walks all the way back to her cell in the police headquarters in Germantown. Shorty (the other guy who you rescued), is working fine but Red won't stay in BigTown.

I've reverted to earlier saves and tried a few times with and without Shorty being rescued and still have issues with Red not staying in Big Town.

That happened to me once too.

That happened to me once too. Not sure what causes that, surely a package issue.

Nope, that was something else

Nope, that was something else, and it was TTWFixes doing it.

I've only actually done that

I've only actually done that quest once since I started playing TTW, but when I did it on 2.9.4 she stayed in big town.

I can confirm this is still

I can confirm this is still an issue.  I rescued her from the Mutants a long long time ago and saw her in Big Town after they tried to take it back.  I got some free healing from her and bought medical supplies as well.

 

After being away for a long time, I got the Strictly Business quest and it pointed to the police station for her.  I went to Big Town and she was no where to be seen.  So I went to the Police Station and there she was in her cell.  I was able to enslave her and get her to Paradise Falls no problem.  But yeah, she doesn't stay in Big Town after being rescued.

  

I am using 2.9.4.  Steam build for both games.

This is a mod issue, I have

This is a mod issue, I have specifically tested this several times and in several versions of TTW and Red always works perfectly.

For me Red has always stayed

For me Red has always stayed in Big Town as well, mods or no mods. 

Someone who has this problem needs to open their load order in FNVedit and see which mod is changing Red's packages.  Might be TTW fixes, but impossible to tell until someone has the bug and takes a look.

This is actually a bug in

This is actually a bug in Fallout 3, I just found it. On her "Back To Jail" Package it compares the "rescued" variable is EQUAL to 1 instead of NOT EQUAL... so this would cause it to happen. Apparently the "Get Distance" check doesn't work properly in NV engine on rare occasions, as that is the only variable which seems like it could mess it up. Unless "followingplayer" is not being set correctly at the conclusion of the quest. However I still think it's the first one, as this is clearly wrong.

I've completed the Red quest

I've completed the Red quest 4 times since I started using 2.9.4 and I had this occur for the first time this past weekend. I successfully completed the quest so I didn't really care where she wanted to go at that point. :P

Twice I completed the quest by activating the dormant robots to defend the town, once I taught them to shoot, and the most recent time I taught them to shoot. I don't think that has any real bearing on why she decided to take a stroll this time though. /shrug

Do you know if there is some

Do you know if there is some way I can set that in console commands? Or some way in the documents?

I tried Roy's suggestion of

I tried Roy's suggestion of changing, "rescued" variable is EQUAL to 1 instead of NOT EQUAL, and she still takes off for Germantown.

I've completed the rescue, defend and Timebomb quests and Red stays in Bigtown until I trade with her. Prior to trading her package is 36, immediately after trading it's 14. I don't know what the 36 and 14 mean, in FNvedit the back to jail package is 0A09D233. And to confuse me even further her editor ID is 0A025251 while in-game it's 0A025252. This 0A025252 number is in her package/condition "RedRef [ACHR:0A025252] (places Red "Red" [NPC_:0A025251] in GRUP Cell Persistent Children of BigTownRedClinic "Big Town, Red's Clinic" [CELL:0A024D78])".

At this point it's over my head, ok. it's mostly all over my head but I gotta try.

 

Edit: sorry wrong console commands. "Getcurrentpackage" returns 0002FBC4 before trading, and 0A02ABA3 after trading. 0002FBC4 is BigTownRedServices10x12 and 0A02ABA3 is MS01RedLockedUp. Disabling TTWreputations fixes it so nevemind.
