    Hi! (First post, from recent member but long time lurker)

    I couldn't find any answer to my question using search or looking manually so here we go...

    Using rather heavily modded game, I've come across a small group of people near Megaton. There's Sticky and Red from Big Town questline and Victoria Watts from Rivet City.
    Watts thanks me for helping the android and continues on separating from the other to shortly after.
    Sticky on the other hand seems to think he's still in Little Lamp Light, which I haven't yet visited. He asks if I can escort him to Big Town.
    Red is pleased that she's alive and back home, even let's me help defending the town, even though we're nowhere near.

    I decided to help the group and escorted Red and Sticky to Big Town. As mentioned earlier, Watts goes her own way and gets blasted to bits by raiders. When finally in Big Town, Sticky reacts accordingly and talking to the guard completes the "Big trouble in Big Town" quest.

    Red however just continues right past the town into the arms of supermutants, radscorpions, geckos - you name it.
    Triggering the dialogue with red right next to Big Towns entrance doesn't help. She's happy but continues on, and if I've told her that I'll help the people to survive on their own - everyone in the town goes after her to the wild. That's one empty town then.

    I'd like to see Red settling to her home town.
    Tried following, but it didn't help;

    1. Killed, resurrected, disabled and enabled Red through command line - even slept 24 hours and then tried the dialogue.

    2. Reset the whole Big Town quest, then did the above.

    Any suggestions? A doctor in town could be helpful since I play with realism mod and stimpaks are pretty rare. Free rad removal would be nice too.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Its kinda strange that u meet Sticky and Red near Megaton. I use modded game too, completed the game several times with different major overhaul mods but I've never come across Sticky or Red away from Big Town (except Sticky in LL and Red in Germantown of course).

    Must be some mod interfering with some NPC script. I don't think there is any way to make an NPC go somewhere. Except for using console on Red and teleporting her to BT, and then toggleAI her to stop doing anything (otherwhile she will walk off and get whacked).

    BTW. U could post you're load order - maybe i can figure out what wrong then. I cant promise anything thou.

    Thanks for the reply!

    It seems Red has Travel package() enabled, tried looking but couldn't find a way to change npc's current package ingame. Do I have to use GECK for that?

    You can view my load order here < link to .txt file.

    Hey, I'm having troble with thi chick, too. And my game is not modded at all (I'm playing the goty edition, with all dlc's; do I need any patch?)

    I kill all muties near the old church, untie her, she speaks to me, give me a stim and runs wild to the OPPOSITE side of Big Town, and as she's faster than me she inevitably dies.

    I even tried fast traveling to Big Town, or to other places and after to Big Town, but she's never there...

    Any way to truly save this hot red head?

    That not Red. Thats a random wastelander your saved. Red is in the German Town Police station, also she happens to be called red because of her red jumpsuit, she has black hair.
