Forums: Index > Fallout 3 gameplay help > Bug with Picking up the Trail

I'm in the part where you have to search little lamplight for vault 87. I was doing the big trouble in big town sidequest and was at the germantown police HQ when the quest picking up the trail suddenly became completed, and the quest finding the geck started. It happened for no apparent reason.

The problem is I can't get the kids to open the gate to murder pass or to open the power supply in little lamplight because the quest picking up the trail is technically complete. I need to finish this quest to get to raven rock and finish the finding the geck quest as well as get the energy weapons bobblehead.

Please help. What can i do? :D

♠ I definitely have experienced the exact same bug. Not pleasant since I did Big Trouble in Big Town a while back and now I've had to reload a prior save game, losing everything since...Bleistift 09:22, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Have you tried saving the kids form paradice falls? I free'ed the kids without talking to the town mayor, There just becomes a spech option to tell him you saved his friends.--NeoScott 16:19, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

♠ NeoScott, I believe the OP is referencing what you do *after* entering Little Lamplight. I was able to enter using the Speech check; had no problems there. Once I'm in, there's no way for me to get to Murder Pass or through the power room. That's where this bug kicks in. Bleistift 05:50, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
