:Help Needed: Glyph Transplant Scroll.
« on: April 28, 2012, 11:42:48 PM »
Hello! First of all I'd like to say thank you -so much- Arcen for making this wonderful game.
I bought it through steam and I've been playing literally all weekend. In fact I hosted a LAN server off of my laptop in my bedroom and now everyone in my house is playing together.

Though I do have a bit of a problem.
I've progressed quite far and amassed 20 Glyph-Transplant-Scrolls, finally after holding onto a character for quite a while I wanted to leave him at the Settlement and switch over to a new body to mess around in for a bit, but every time I try to use the scroll, Nothing happens. I simply get the "Could not perform Glyph Transplant without a valid NPC to talk to." error.

After a little bit of browsing I set my admin password on the server and claimed rights to make sure the use of scrolls was enabled, and I'm still interfacing with the same problem. I've tried every NPC in my settlement, but the results are the same.

I googled here and there and couldn't find an easy response, was wondering what the prerequisites for a "valid NPC" are?

Don't talk to the guys in pink armor.  I don't know why, but they don't seem to want to swap.

Talk to humans and (if you have them) lizard dudes.  They'll swap.

If you've got the conversation bar like you did in the screenshot, they SHOULD swap.

If that's STILL failing, .zip your world folder and attach it here.  Keith and/or Chris (the devs) will poke at it and let you know what's up. :)
... and then we'll have cake.

Thanks Wanderer. You know after trial and error and playing the game for a few more hours I realized whats wrong.
I'm not sure if the game was built this way; or if this is just a bug, but if you attempt to use the Glyph Transplant Scroll -while wearing a Snowsuit- The NPC becomes "Invalid", and cannot be used for transplanting.
After taking the snowsuit off, everything worked fine.

*With the snowsuit on, I couldn't transplant into -any- npc, let alone a robot.

At the very least you should be getting a better error for that - one for Mantis, for sure!
