Played Modern Times successfully once (this morning) and exited, but now when I go back in to continue my game, I'm not able to access my most recently saved game or new content: "This game requires a DLC you don't currently have."

It seems I can't access any of the Junta DLC saved games either. I installed that DLC several weeks ago and it worked fine up until this afternoon.

Please help! I started playing the campaign, and when I reached May 1987 in the first campaign mission, the game FROZE! Now, I don't mean froze in the sense that the program doesn't respond, I just mean that time seems to have stopped, nothing happens or moves, and I can't open any menus, but music keeps playing, and strangely - I can still move the camera around my island!
I tried reloading through autosave, and the same thing happens each time I reach april/may 1987! I can't keep playing and I really want to! Please help!

I've had this a few times too. I get it locking up. Kill the game and reload an autosave, and then at about the same point I get it locking up again. I think that manually doing a save delayed the lock up happening, but it still happened eventually. Very frustrating.

I got Tropico through Steam.

On the first campaign mission, I received a side-quest to get the religious factions satisfaction to 60, to receive a +15 satisfaction bonus.

However I've gotten it to 100, but on the quest display on the bottom right the highest it will go is 54/60. I have tried all the religious improving edicts; contraception band, invite the pope, etc. But on the quest requirements it won't raise past 54.

If my religious faction satisfaction starts dropping below 100, the number for the quest drops, I got it down to 48. It doesn't seem completable. And I don't think you can cancel quests once they've been accepted.

Edit:
Oops. I just realized I made a mistake.
I thought I was supposed to raise the religious faction standing. I'm actually supposed to raise the overall religious happiness, which is displayed under the people tab.

Sorry. I was honestly trying to figure this out for the longest time before reporting it as a bug. Just now I figured it out.

Achievements system has bugs.
When I achieved palace upgrade achievement mission 1, but in mission 2, I've got message again.
So, I checked the main achievement but there was no achieved one.(Ex: Capo Di Tutti Capi, Going Green)

Also, When I play New Sparta(in hunta DLC), they must not be adapted Modern times, but Religious faction asked Ban social community.
Sometimes, It looks non-modern times campaign also have modern times request.

Posted same issue in 1.05 thread by accident and couldn't delete the post for some reason. Ill just post it here as well.

"Organic Ranch" description in Modern Times expansion seems to be incorrect. It states that there are "work modes" but you can't change anything and it is not clear what type of meat it actually produces.

I have had the issue of the first quote and second combined. I had the 3 other DLC installed, then installed Modern Times. Everything worked fine with DLC buildings, missions, traits and etc when I played the first time, but my old saves were invalid with "Save game requires a DLC you don't currently have".

Now though, after reloading the game I have no access to the first 3 DLC at all, none of the buildings, traits etc show up.

Fish farms never display anything for wages and upkeep in the info panel. They do have workers in them, so I would assume it's a display bug only, although I'm not sure.

In the mission creator, you can not add buildings from the main game, just the expansion. You also can not destroy the current buildings (didnt try the mission creator before Modern Times so not sure if that was possible then)

I think the Sanatorium is unaffected by the chemical plant upgrade of medicine production. It should be affected by that as well.

Also all my progress, achievements and options were reset. The options were reset 3 times so far.

Playing in Mission 5, the "Truth Serum" meter isn't rising, regardless of the fact I have about 21 professors on the island to work on it.

Can't win the Mission without it unfortunately.

My secret police are also shown as being miners. This is annoying but not game breaking.

I've completed 6 campaign scenarios now and achieved the "going green" achievement in each of them. A few other achievements are repeating themselves too. Seems the achievements are not sticking.

"Issue Tax Cut" mission doesn't complete not matter how many times you issue the edict.

During mission 11 there is a countdown to build "Space Program" which is actually locked until 1990 so it might be impossible to do it in time, unless you waited for several years before completing previous missions.

RE: Tropico 4 - Modern Times - Bug Reports Thread (Version x.xx only!)
Hello. Recently in a sandbox game I tried to build a Space Program and do the little side quest associated with it. All was well until I got to the part where I had to have 20 professors on my island. At that point in my game, I had well over 20 professors, yet the ticker was stuck at 0. At that point, I thought maybe the game wanted me to hire 20 new professors, so I built a bunch of new colleges and they all filled up with new professors, yet the ticker was stuck at 0. The ticker stood at 0 for the entirety of my game and I was never able to complete that quest.

If it matters, I bought the game directly from the Kalypso launcher. Here are my specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Intel Core i5-2500 3.30 GHz Processor
AMD Radeon HD 6800
8GB DDR3 RAM

Companion M.T. 3. Police State edict does not disappears after addict it !

Companion M.T.4. Tax Cut edict does not disappears after addict it !

Companion M.T.4. Tour Office can't place point for tourist destination nowhere on the map!

I think that's by design.

You can either grow Corn, the three other food crops together or the three cash crops together.

Not sure why it was done this way but okay.

There's something awry with the SWAT team...nobody ever seems to join it unless you recruit from overseas. I get a few for my upgraded palace swat team (though never full) but none in the swat building itself.

Also, military education does not seem to ever actually convert anyone to the militarist faction

Just playing around in Sandbox. Religious faction asked me to Ban Social Networks.

I did that but the mission didn't complete properly.

I've noticed a few things which I assume are bugs:
1) Secret Agents showing as miners in their portraits
2) I built a 7-star hotel and the tourists staying there didn't go to any attractions. They stayed in the hotel until it was time to leave the island. I had luxury hotels prior to building it which worked normally (and continued to do so). I tried demolishing the other luxury hotels so the 7-star was my only one, and my tourist rating fell (boring, no attractions) as the tourists never left the hotel during their time on Tropico. This was on the Modern Times campaign mission 3.

Edit: 3) The organic ranch has no selectable work modes despite the 'about' text saying it does.

1.) 2nd, 3rd or 4th mission (the one that starts with the clone mustashio guy who asks you to Print Money at the beginning)
At one point in the mission you are asked to issue Special Diplomas (it's only a sidequest) but even if you do issue this edict, the mission does not sign it as objective completed.
2.) Secondly, I cannot use any Swish Bank Account work mode, because it doesn't register the money?

See pic above.
3.) Supermarket clerks are sometimes stuck while exiting Supermarket and just walk on one spot.

I use Steam version of Tropico 4 MT
