Quest question: In the Footsteps of Phileas

Nepoxx Posts: 2 Registration: 2016-12-20
Me and my friends completed the dungeon before doing the quest, so maybe we "broke" it.

In any case, the quest tells us to go to a dungeon and find 4 notes in the Observation Station. I've found notes 2, 3 and 4 but I can't find the first one. Does anyone know where it is and whether the quest is supposed to update?

The quest tells that he went to hide in a tree, but I don't have any marker nor clue as to its location.

The first note is ...Open this spoilIn a room near the entry of this observatory, where there are many containers. The note is hidden behind a stack of containers against the wall. You have to retrieve some to find the note.

I've looked and looked. Found some secret chests, still no note. I think maybe the note was destroyed or collected by a friend by accident. I guess the quest is now stuck :/

Did you or your friend had a lvl2 digging gauntlet when you cleared the dungeon? If so it's possible that the note was accidentally "dug" with the containers. If that's the case the quest is indeed stuck :/
If you want, you can send an e-mail with your save to the support so we can "unstuck" you.

This is a bug though, and it's been noted.

You can find the saves in C:\Users\{YOUR_NAME}\AppData\Local\StellarOverloadEA2\Saved\Saves\Universes and Zip (or rar, or tar, ...) your universe.

For the support you can contact it here: and we will get back to you to ask for your file. (we do it that way because our programmers don't want the direct e-mail address on the forum to avoid bots finding it)

I know this is an old question but I am also having trouble with this quest. I can't find which Observation Station even has notes. Please help! Thanks.

Those notes are in the same observation station. You can find wich one by following the quest in the quest menu. Then an indicator in the HUD will show you the direction to go.
