Hi!
After a lot of meddling with my older JA-install I decided to make a clean sweep and reinstall with the 1.13 + H.A.M. 3.6 SCI plus Wildfire Maps (just the maps).

Everything went well until I liberated Drassen mine and found myself unable to locate Fred Morris (should be him, it's the first visited mine sector).
I already searched every single house in the sector although I know he is supposed to be in the "Mining Comission" with all the wooden lockers but the only person in there is the nameless guy who refuses to step away from the door to the small room with the chests. Yes, I spun my merc around 360

Here's something I would try, shouldnt take longer than a few mins anyway:

->Start a new game
->Create a few IMPs
->flee the sector at the beginning
->head straight to the mine sector and evade all enemy patrols
->fight your way through to the minung building and doublecheck

I'm guessing that would at least narrow the issue down to whether it is an issue with just the save or something else with the game.

Done that - the miner is still gone.
It can't be an issue with NPCs generally, cause the rebels were there, as well as Pablo, and I even stumbled into Skyrider on my way to the Drassen mine on the second try.

I don't know what is going wrong. I don't think it is the .ini-setting with the minimum of civilians is it? Or do the WiFi maps place more "fixed" civilians than the normal maps and NPCs get "cut"? Nah... silly idea...

Nope, he is not there.
As i said, he is not in the Mining Comission Building - and not in any other building of the sector, for that matter - I searched 'em all...

Try this, start a new game, activate GABBI, teleport to the sector, Alt+O to kill all enemies, Alt+E to show everyone, hover your mouse over each RPC, look for a guy with a name displayed over their guy, is the miner there?

This way you check if the default map has the miner. For example the miner could have accidentally died in your specific game.

You can also use GABBI Alt+E to look for the miner in your current game. Just save, activate GABBI, look for the guy, reload your saved game. This way your game won't have the cheat entry. It could be the miner ran somewhere and is stuck or hidden.

@Dieter:
As I wrote, the miner did not die or anything. I looked with GABBI (kind of more comfortable than searching every single building and spinning the mercs around like crazy to rule out "blind spots"...) and he is not there.

@Gorro:
How can I do this? I can't attach them here.

OK, this is the last Quicksave of the "original" game, not the testrun.
I have a save of that as well, if needed.

Looks like a f*cked up save/installation.

Even with Your ini I get inconsitency errors galore. (differing numbers of creatures, enemies etc in save and ini)

I also get a message about my version being newer.

How did you install the whole game? Did you install the 1.12 version and then used a one click installer version for 1.13 or anything else added?

Or did you install everything via svn?

I did not use the SVN.
I used the SCI and then copied the WiFi-maps-pack over. Got no error-messages when starting the game or something.
As I said, everything works fine, except that the miner is missing.

Same problem when using the WiFi maps. It did not occur in my last game before I restarted, however. Last time he was in the office like he is supposed to be, though I *think* he appeared only after the second time I visited the sector. The current game is at experienced difficulty; the previous game was at expert difficulty.

[edit]

Yep, I went back a day later and he was there. Weird.

the headminers run for it when the bullets fly perhaps he was somewhere on the map where You didn't expect him.

Same problem in Grumm now... Except I've waited a few days and he hasn't returned. ALT+E also doesn't show him on the map.

No, but he appeared where he was supposed to a few days later. Maybe it's become tied to loyalty for some reason? Dunno.

I'm having other problems though, such as recruiting Carlos & Miguel, locating Carlos the bounty hunter, getting the helicopter refueling service from Estoni... I'm using Thor or Hitman to speak with everyone, who by now have leadership scores of 60-80. I've captured Drassen, Chitzena, Grumm, Alma and Cambria. That should be enough, right?

This is definitely the glitchiest playthrough I've experienced so far.
