I can't seem to interact with Netch corpses

Post by DrCuddlebug » 14 Nov 2014, 08:25

For some reason interacting with a netch corpse in my game doesn't bring up the prompt to search it's inventory.

I'm assuming this has already been reported on the bug tracker but I'm curious if anyone else has noticed it

This is the same problem as with cliff racers I think which is a reported bug.

If I remember correctly OpenMW code has the fix already but is waiting for an Ogre update to complete the fix.
Arch Linux - rolling release, always up to date, often partly broken.

As a temporary workaround, at least with cliffracers, if you walk into the corpse and look up you can usually loot it.

Why would you kill netches in the first place anyway :(

Yup, this is a known bug (https://bugs.openmw.org/issues/827). Jumping and looking up should work to get into the looting window, but it can be quite annoying at times ;)
Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty or derring-do. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer to achieve immortality by not dying

I'll try that out

I always like to kill Netches when I play as a Marksman related character. They're such a huge target and tend to go down fairly easily.

Yes I'm a complete monster.
