Finding that exclamation mark....
#1
I'm on mission 18 (The Clandestine War), and I have to find the secret agent that apparently has an exclamation mark above his head.... Well, my island has grown quite big, and I've got a little over 1000 people on it, and I just can't find him by zooming in and looking around... I sure have tried for a while.

Any hints or tips on how to find this agent in another way?

Is there not a little box (bottom right screen) that you can click on for that particular part of the mission that once open has a view option bottom left of that opened window?

No, it looks like I'm a victim of a bug... I watched a youtube video of somebody playing that mission, and he did, in fact, have a 'view' to click on that took him straight to the agent. I don't... Sad As far as I know, he might be dead of old age, I've reached year 2030 looking for him.. Sad

I have this exact problem right now. I really don't want to have to start over considering how long this mission has taken.

Is there a solution?

Notice in the screenshot, there is no option to view, accept, or close.

I too would love to know if anyone resolved this problem? I have the same exact issue and I can't continue on with the mission. I've searched HOURS trying to find the person with the ! mark on them and have not found anyone. VERY frustrating!

i have seen this happen before, I am starting to wonder if it is not so much a bug in one since.

I wonder if the person marked is leaving the island, dying, or becoming a rebel.... that could be a possible place to start checking for the cause.

I say not a bug, because if it is working like this the game is working as intended, just not the quest. So on that side, the quest is bugged, vrs the game.. if that makes since.


Is the person gone, when the box first pops? Or is this after some time has passed?

Try to click on the region the bottom was supposed to be, to see if it works.

Sorry for the late reply on this, totally forgot to check back on this thread. What do you mean with this sentence? I don't understand.

I believe he's suggesting that you click on the panel where the choice _should_ be. It may be that all that is missing is the visual component, while the "hot spot" still remains, just waiting to be clicked.

Yea, precisely that.

Again sorry for the late reply. I finally got around to trying that idea out. I loaded the game and clicked everywhere within the window. No luck.

I did manage to figure out the problem though!

I restarted the game and got to that point again. I noticed that it said I had to "eliminate" the spies. What I did the last time around was I "arranged an accident" for every single person and did not outright "eliminate" them. Yes, both ways mean the same thing, but one is more direct and the other subversive. Apparently the game wants you to be more direct. I eliminated everyone without arranging accidents, and I went right through to the next section. Hope this helps!
