Oh boy, Me again.

So I was investigating the City Manager Holotape just having a dive in all the sections to see whats what and went into Tools > Tracking > Object Tracking > Stuck Plots.

2 of my Plots are "Stuck" So.. I thought okay a cheeky refresh, retracked... same 2 plots. Hmm...

What does the term "Stuck Plots" Mean? Is it not fulfilled upgrade requirements? Checked the ASAM... just says Operational. Checked the Wiki but still alot of sections are WIP. Checked forum search, turned up nout. SO... Here I am asking the loveliest of people on this here chat board. What is a "Stuck Plot"?

Thanks lovelies <3

That question i make long time ago.Had even 2 Plots Stuck and even after trying all nothing change after i destroy them Build new Plots and again they was Stuck.Then i Destroy them without building new and the stuck symbol remain on the empty ground.So i Build new Plots and ignore them and until the end i dont see any problem with them they upgrade normal and seams to produce normal (what is difficult to see with this Virtual Storage system)

You have to clear the tracking and re-track to update. From what I have seen, the tracking does not dynamically update. It is the same when tracking plot occupants. If you reassign a settler with the tracking active, it will continue to track until you turn it off.

That said, I have given up on trying to figure this out. I'm sure I saw a post where Kinggath talked about it, but I can not remember what was said...

so the part where Mslaba states.

Now if you are capable of comprehending words you will find that the very first sentence indicates that you turn of the tracking quest and restart it.
That does not mean the quest in the pipboy data tab, it means the actual quest that SS starts so it can place its markers.

Furthermore the next sentence provides a observation on how it works and how a different tracking quests functions the same way.
Does it mean that the feature might be working properly? no.
but that is currently irrelevant since even if the said feature is not working properly there has already been given instructions on how to make it work in the very first sentence.
You are not reading a arcane tome here.

Now, if you read the actual question instead of a possible issue you might understand that the question has never been answered. A reply is not the same as an answer. You're not reading Kim Kardashian Twitter feed where only the last post matters.

I will have to retract this statement. Yesterday I was tracking a settler through the plot ASAM. I re-assigned that settler and by the time I remembered that I should turn it off, I noticed that it was already off! My thinking is this is a lower priority (in the script) so may take a while to update.

I still have no clue what is meant by "stuck plot." I'm pretty sure this was a thing in SS1, but for the life of me, I can't remember...

Stuck plot means a plots whose scripts has died, that is it will not upgrade or contribute to the settlement.

Thanks but I'm not sure if that's accurate. My stuck municipal plot is still supplying water. Even after tracker refresh the plot is still indicated as stuck. Even after destroying and rebuilding it. It functioned and produces. Can't say about its upgrades though still lvl 1

Don't troll.

No he didn't.
Both of you are out of line. Please be nice to each other however bumping an old thread is not good etiquette so please refrain from doing so without at least adding some useful context. Also please avoid getting into a tiff inside a thread it detracts from the issue and people then tend to avoid the thread altogether.

The Question what mean Stuck Plot was never answer.Only that Tracking need to be Refresh to take Effect.
Until now i can only say that Stuck means nothing as i write before i have 2 Plots in Sanctuary that are from the beginning Stuck even i destroy them and build them new.Even i refresh Tracking the 2 Plots remain Stuck or get direct stuck when i build 2 new Plots after destroying.As i never see an answer on this question i ignore the (problem).And at the end i see that the Plot show as Stuck but upgrade normal same as any other Plot they seams to work normal.1 Plot is a Shop and he Sell all what he have to sell and 1 i can not say if he real Work as i can not control what reach real the virtual store but both plot are Level 3 now and don't make any Problem apart from be marked as Stuck for the entire time.
