Description

Ferry tourist contracts are not completing. I have been able to reproduce this in 2 separate save games with no mods. All sub objectives are complete but will not complete the contract.

History

The problem has now extended further, in that I have accepted a contract to ferry 4 tourists on an orbital flight around Kerbin which I have completed. None of the green ticks appear for any of the objectives. It is as if the game is unaware the Kerbals are in the command pods. They are all returned to me in the crew selection tab when I land them and recover the vessel.

Between doing these 2 missions I have successfully completed a 2 contracts to ferry 2 tourists into orbit and return, using the same method and same objectives. I completed both contracts with this same vessel within the same launch and flight.

A savegame would be helpful.

Same issue happening in my game with two ferry contracts. I am attempting to complete two separate ferry VIP/tourist missions, but the missions are not registering as completed even though conditions seem to have been met. The first, for Siner Kerman requires completion of a suborbital and orbital flight around Kerbin. I have done this, and she has even leveled up as a result. However, the mission parameters do not register as being met. This problem also occurred with a mission to ferry six tourists. The first three completed, but two of them (Jofal and Foory) had the same issue as Siner, and sixth Kerbal (Tomrie) show’s his mission parameters being met but not his itinerary, even though he has been taken off of the available list seemingly completed. I have attached screenshots of the mission screens in question and the crew list in the build screen showing leveling up as a result of completion. I have attached my game file as requested.

I believe this to be related to the bug where if two vessels dock, the pictures don't update with occupants of all the vessels until you either go to the tracking station and come back, reload from a quick save, or perform an EVA with one and board again. When the pictures down show, you can't do a transfer from one pod to another, thus the same problem may exist with recognizing achievements too. The fix to all of these problems may be one in the same. Simply update the ship pictures and roster after any docking, or after returning from any warp back into a physics mode. Then check for mission conditions being met.

Could you please say whether the contracts were accepted before the 1.4.2 patch, or after?

That is some interesting information. Thank you.

We have not been able to replicate this problem in testing, and the steps taken have been elusive. The quest continues.

Some measures have already been implemented to prevent or detect this in 1.4.2, so I shall mark this as ready to test. Please do continue to report with saves (from before, and after it happens) and most importantly, a log from the session where it is seen. We do appreciate that this is not always easy to do, and the problem does not become obvious until after it has happened..
