This has been observed with the Promised Land victory quest, and the Found An Outpost quest. Any time I start a game with the Laboratory option chosen for my spacecraft, the Found An Outpost quest will appear as expected a few turns into the game, but will list the "Research Pioneering" technology objective as incomplete. This is quite annoying. Furthermore, if I forget to launch a Lasercom Satellite before researching Nanotechnology, and subsequently launch one, then the Promised Land quest step "Launch 1 Lasercom Satellite" will complete as expected, but the "Research Nanotechnology" step will not complete. This would not be a problem, but without this step completing, I cannot build an Exodus Gate, regardless of how high my Purity Affinity Level goes, making this game breaking. Going back to an earlier save, launching a Lasercom Satellite and then researching Nanotechnology lets the quest advance as expected, but I don't always research in that order, and so I'm having to hop back 50 turns (or give up and start over). This issue started occurring at some point after the pre-RT patch for vanilla BE was released; I can't be more specific than that, since, after installing that patch, my copy of BE stopped working for a while. I have tried: verifying the cache; clean re-installing; playing without mods; rebooting everything; reinstalling drivers; reinstalling DirectX; reinstalling Vcredist; running Windows System File Checker; running with a clean boot; deleting ClientRegistry and letting BE create a new one; re-registering my .dll files. No joy. Game version is 126.96.36.19909. Sample save files are attached.
