Duplicate quests

Post by Panzermann11 » Thu Aug 19, 2021 11:21 am

So I've been rummaging in FNVEdit and I noticed TTW has these strange, duplicate quests for the Fallout 3 section. Looking at them reveal none other than a message saying "DO NOT CHANGE QUEST EDITOR ID". Examining further reveals some of the quest-related dialogue were changed to link to these duplicate quests. What does that mean?

It's a trick to fix broken dialogue that stopped working when the original quest is completed (and stopped) without having to rename tons of files.

These quests are started when the original quest finishes. You also have to be careful when recompiling any quest stages and fix the references to these quests in xEdit if you do.
