Are you located close to the video station when you choose the action ? I've had it fail when I was still outside (from your picture they seem to be inside but maybe it's some kind of routing issue ?

 

Can you try if it works if you place the drone next to the video station ?

Glad it did.

I'm going to add this as Needs Input to the list for now.

Not sure if it's a bug or intentional. For me, it's wonky. I got it to work from outside as well but it failed other times.

So, gathering feedback, how many have issues with this.

I also have the same issue (without mods or anything). But it's fixed for now by standing close to video station like you were suggesting. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks, by the way.Large smile

HI @Davidsalter

 

merged your post with existing thread.

 

Can you try moving the drone closer to the video station and see if it works then ? Seems to be a hit and miss.

 

For me it always works, no matter where the drone is, if my Sim is already sitting at the station and then use the upload on the drone.

@Davidsalter

 

The queue can cancel for the drone because it starts a new queue for the sim where they go over to the video station to start the transfer of the video. Does your sim perform that task?

 

Thanks! Standard smile

Hi, I seem to be having the same problem as @Davidsalter.

Tried everything, putting the drone/bot in the sim's inventory, being close to the video station and nothing works. The task is initially in the queue but always cancels itself. The sim doesn't even try to action the task/start another queue and is just stood there, and the recordings are still stuck in the drone Frown
