I'm playing a Sim in Batuu with scoundrel aspiration. For one of the scoundrel missions I need to use a holotable so I'm trying to get to rank 2 with the resistance so I can do this. Did the first resistance mission, now I'm on the second one. The first step is to get a dataspike from Hondo. I'm already friends with him so I can just go up to him and buy one, but after I do this it won't show as completed. I tried a few times but it just won't happen. 

 

I also tried to complete a scoundrel mission with the same Sim where you have to get 3 information fragments from different sources and then compile them into a report. I got the fragments, but when I click on them in my inventory the option to compile is greyed out saying I'm missing 2. If I use multi select and highlight them all, I don't have an option to compile. 

 

I have since cancelled these missions, not sure what to do now. It looks like a bug to me, or am I doing something wrong?

@niiicole1 You need 5. I don't know why you only have to collect 3 to fulfill the step. To compile you need 5.

I don't think buying fulfills it. You need to ask him for one. I'm not 100% sure but I think there was a special interaction while the task is open.

Thanks, I actually tried to get more by opening some more crates but didn't get any. I will try again! 

 

I didn't see any other interactions to get a dataspike from him but I think I needed one for an earlier scoundrel mission and maybe I used it then. I'll try this one again too, thanks for your help!

@niiicole1 Hm, it's amazing how fast one forgets. Def didn't have any issues getting 2 more info pieces. I do agree that there's a discrepancy and unsure if that's a bug or not.

The other thing. I really don't remember. Didn't have any troubles fulfilling that but I think there was some interaction on Hondo that I used.

There's also always the possibility of bugs only occurring on console.

★★★ Guide

Hot Tip mission requirements show 0/3 information fragments but compiling the fragments requires 5. The game doesn't let you acquire more fragments when you have 3. This makes it impossible to complete the mission unless there's some way to trick the game into letting you acquire 2 extra fragments.

 

ETA: I could not get the additional information fragments by slicing control panels. I had to rely on conversation instead. (I put the 3 fragments I already had on a table in the Resistance break room, just in case the game was tracking how many were in my inventory.)

 

Should probably split this into two reports, one for each mission.

Yes, I tried Hot Tip again yesterday and was also able to get more fragments from conversation, it just doesn't seem to work via the crates once you have 3. I was able to complete this one. 

 

Will try the other one again too later.

I just started the 'risk and rewards' resistance mission again and went to talk to Hondo. I went through all the options, there is definitely no option to ask for a dataspike, I can only buy one. I did a few of the scoundrel missions previously and I may have asked him for a dataspike for one of these missions, but not 100% sure. I guess I won't be able to proceed with resistance missions with this Sim.
