So I accidentally acquired the G.E.C.K. and started the american dream quest before even talking to doctor lee. Ah, well, whatever, right? Well, no.
I wanted to finish the previous one for the xp, but of course, all of the dialogue options were gone. So with some fancy console commands I got the science team to finally get to the memorial. THEN Everyone wouldn't go in until I had "cleared the area of mutants". Well, there was nothing inside, so i had to console-ize that too. Got the team inside, everyone except dad that is, and then froze at the omgeez my dad died part. I had to use console commands to get doctor li to follow me from there, but after that everything went well. I got to the citadel, and went throught all the normal talky crap, but then it was time to finish the american dream quest, and for that, I had to talk to Owyn Lyons. But, everytime I went down into the area he was (in front of liberty prime) I lost all control of my character and nothing happened, so I used console commands to finish that quest as well.
Now no commands are able to be used for the "Take it back!" quest, so i cannot start it at all now. I'm really reluctant to start a new character, but Sentenial Lyons, Elder Lyons, and the scribe are all stuck in place, staring at eachother, with the Lyon's pride in the background. They will not move, or speak, not even give generic dialogue. How do I fix this? And also, if I do have to restart, is it possible to get all of my perks, items, skills, and experience back without breaking that save as well? Sorry for the huge block of text guys, and thanks.
