To start the A Trace of Metal quest, warp by ship to the system where you settlement is. If you are already there, warp away and then back again. You should receive a radio comms from your settlement.
There is definitely an issue (for me) when installing the Hardframe Legs. It seems there should be another attack on the settlement but that is not happening and so I cannot get the Hardframe Engine. This might be due to my settlements not being maxed. It could also be a glitch…will update this.
With the added ability to hold more MTs, we can now make a variety of specialized MTs for different situations.
And don’t forget to grab all the dropped containers after and during battle. They can recharge your shields and some contain a new type of glass that can be broken down into usable upgrades and sellable components.
As soon as someone figures out how to launch the new story-driven missions, please post. Does your settlement need to be maxed?
Love the new music in the settlements…
Edit: I think my settlement is experiencing a glitch. Perhaps we should already be under attack, hence the new music and the fact that all of my settlers are running to hide…but no sentinels…
In case anyone else experiences this:
I could not get the A Trace of Metal quest to activate at my settlement. After exhausting all other normal options, warping to another system finally triggered the quest.
