Primary Bug Report If I Had a Hammer - Quest fails to update after completing quest objectives

Messages

If I had a hammer has its first two component parts completed, but I didn't receive another stage and the quest didn't complete. There is a bug, but is it that the quest should have finished or is it that a new stage should have started?

how did you get the ASAM Sensors?
You mean from "Stranger"? Or are they somewhere later in the quest, because I'm stuck again. Old Paul just keeps saying "Raiders. Hurry" But I'm in the settlement and nothing is happening. I'm going to try fast traveling back to concord and walking back to Sanctuary.

First, try moving the Player closer to the ASAM.
If that does not work.
Click on the stranger and get is ID
then console
moveto player
To get him closer to the ASAM and the player.

I think there are a few other folks having this issue so it has been reported to KG and he will look at it in the morning / try to make it easier to activate.
If a guy named Old Paul shows up then you have gotten to the next stage.

This was not my issue. Its a later quest, that Old Paul gives you. And right now the stage is "find out what's wrong with old paul" and he just keeps saying raiders hurry without a conversation initiation or the quest updating.

Are you in the workshop in Concord with the Stranger and Old Paul?

There should be another quest in your pipboy to build some plots "IND and AG"
after a bit - 2 other settlers will show up
Once you get to the right number of plots one of the new settlers will get pissed with her ASAM as she will want to build a shop.
You will hear Old Paul and Lilly in a "spat" about it.
That will kick off you going back to Concord.

Already did all that, already told him I was interested in doing more with ASAM sensors, the conversation abruptly ended and I got the message to see what was wrong with Old Paul, and he just keeps saying "Raiders. Hurry." without any quest updates or dialog options.

Where is he when he stops and says Hurry? Can you follow him?

That sequence should start in a settlement "Sanctuary" and the "Hurry" take place in the stranger's workshop "Concord?"

If that is not the case I would roll back and replay and make sure you to hit the ques.

If still, the problem continues a screenshot of where you are at / where the dialog breaks could be helpful.

Here is the thing. Its 4am here and I am going to bed. I'll check the forums when I get up if someone else hasn't helped you before then. :crazy

Loving the revamp, its amazing! Doing the intro build quest, working with the stranger I built the first industry building. The quest step flagged as complete, but the stranger doesnt have any follow up dialog and just follows along behind me? I think I bugged his next step.

Same issue, gets to Industrial Plot, builds it, then nothing, no dialogue, no more notes in the quest.

Edit: Should probably add this is on the PC version.

I personally ran into this issue as well.
For me it happened because i fast traveled back to sanctuary, directly after ending dialogue in Concord.

Which cased Old Paul to be in sanctuary, and get stuck on that exact line.

Hello,
I cant find any information about what these symbols mean. Can anyone help me?
Also after finishing building the industrial plot i dont know what else to do with the quest, stalking to Stranger doesnt do anything, he just follows me witzhin my settlement.

Help is much appretiated.
Thanks!

Gekko
