BB4 problem landing at haven under attack

#1

I did the F12 thing on this, but I’m not sure if it’s something I’m just doing wrong.

Every time one of the havens is under attack I fly there and get option to either land and help, or leave. I select land and help, and then the box goes away, but I never actually land. My jet just keeps flying around the haven until the mission expires and it’s lost.

This has happened 3 time with the same result. Every time I get the haven attack message I quickly save, and then try again and again to land but it never works. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Well, I’m down to only one haven left in south america. Every other one has been destroyed by the aliens. For the ones close enough I tried to help, but the jet just wouldn’t land.

Is there a Base Defense mission? Will the aliens attack my base at some point, (it’s in the middle of the red zone). I’ve been letting the timer go round and round on fast simply to get the base defense mission so I could do something.

Unfortunately the game is pretty much broke for me. I can’t do anything else. :frowning:

P.S. I forgot to mention in the first post that I also clicked on the little arrow pointing to the target and selected dispatch squad as well, but still the jet never lands.

Maybe it is a stupid idea, but do you have troops in the carrier? It happened to me last backer build, that I played with the squad roster and moved all troops to the base and then there was nobody to run out the Manticore and save the day…

I did the 3 salvage missions I was able to find, and never moved the soldiers from the plane, so I assume they are in there.

In fact one of the haven missions happened right after a salvage mission. I had reloaded a couple solider’s weapons during the salvage, so I was afraid that they wouldn’t have any ammo, but I was glad to realize that all the weapons & ammo were on the plane so I was able to restock on the way from the salvage mission directly to the haven mission.

Just a note on this that I started a new game tonight and the haven defense missions are working correctly this time. I’m not sure why it didn’t work in the last game.

there was some bug in Backers Build 3 that prevented doing missions and if I well remember it was caused by some inventory management done to soldiers - but I don’t know exact reason
