Bugs

  • PCPC The frumentarius may never appear in the game at all, even if the Courier has a positive Legion reputation. [verified]
    • PCPC A possible fix for this bug may be to use the console command player.placeleveledactoratme 15d42f. This will clone the frumentarius and place him where you are, allowing you to talk to him.
    • PCPC Other possible fix for this bug may be to use the console commands prid 164ed0, disable, enable, resurrect, moveto player and player.moveto 164ed0, in that order. This will revive the frumentarius and place him where you are, allowing you to talk to him.
