Summarize your bug The quest "Task: Nomad Shield Crafting" cannot be completed when the Improved Shield Regeneration upgrade is already installed prior to first landing on Voeld. In this instance, the upgrade was bought prior to landing on Voeld (and receiving the quest), but installation of the new upgrade by entering the Nomad was only done after receiving the quest. The already developed upgrade appears again for development at the research terminal, but cannot be developed again.

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Encountered behaviour / steps to reproduce: 1. Before landing on Voeld for the first time, develop "Improved Shield Regeneration" upgrade for the Nomad from the Tempest research station. 2. Land on Voeld for the first time, accept quest "Task: Nomad Shield Crafting". 3. Call Nomad at forward point, enter to confirm newly installed upgrade popup. 4.

Hello fellow Pathfinders,

 

the long awaited hot fix went live and it should fix this issue. See full notes here.

 

Important for this quest: Please travel back to the Tempest in order to trigger completion.

 

If the issue should persist after the fix was installed, please let me know below - feel free to post if the issue was fixed for you as well.

 

Have a great day!

This has happened to me on the Xbox One as well. I upgraded before receiving the quest and now it's stuck in my list, I was hoping a more advanced upgrade my complete it but I have yet to find one.

This occured for me on my second play through on PC. Already have the upgrade but the quest does not recognize this nor will it let me go through the motions to upgrade it again.

I read about this problem and tried an older save where the Nomad upgrade was not developed yet.

But even after i got the quest and developed the upgrade then, the quest was not completed.

I got a similar bug.

I actually didnt craft any upgrades for the Normad until late in the game.. 

On a return trip to Eos very close to the ending, i then decided to just craft everything at once. (I did have the Quest at that point).

And while i was able to craft everything - the Quest for the Normad Shield did not get completed. 

 

Kinda sucks because i cant get 100% completion now Confused

Good thing i wanted to do a NewGame+ playthrough anyway. Just hope the bug is patched by then. Standard smile

The quest complete marker doesnt trigger, same for the 'craft pathfinder chest piece' quest too.

Same problem. The button to interact didn't pop up. Went to the next marker. That one did work, until the marker never went away again. This whole quest is buggy as *. Please patch it.

come to think of it theres allot in the 'additional quests' section of the journal that doesnt complete when the objective is finished...i personally think the entire menu needs a redesign...it isnt logical or easy to navigate at all, especially the journal!

This has occurred with my playthrough.  Specs are PC, digital install, Collector's Ed., and the quest doesn't change to Completed after I construct the mod for the Nomad.
