v1.4005 Nimble bug

Bug fest wouldn't be complete w/o something awry with this character, would it?

1) You obtain the SSP 100 suit
2) Give it to him...
3) Since you have to come back later "for payment" you leave the range of his PDA - at which point he is removed forever from the map and the game.
4) You ain't gettin' paid EVER.

You discern this state of affairs may be permanent as you leave Rookie Village and another side job that you have for him fails as you leave PDA range.

Writeup and interim workaroud here: [http://lost-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Find_the_experimental_ecolog_suit]

(So that'll be 17000 you're not getting)

I managed to get my 17k from him, but when I later returned to Cordon, as soon as I came to pda range, he disappeared, failing some other quests from him.
It´s like he´s there for a limited amount of time ... but I probably got lucky.

In my second playthrough, this happened as well, but for some reason, my first playthrough's Nimble is still at the Rookie Village

Here is a ZIP file of my save where you begin Freeplay, where Nimble is still there.

https://mega.nz/#!peZ1xKqL!x3vYe6SlSt2OTdNXdA4lKvP_jLgrg-XEIPAv0z7eU0s

What FiloT says still happens with this save. But I think a workaround for this is to only go to Cordon via the Guides, so that you load/spawn very close to Nimble, then he won't disappear.









EDIT AND SPOILERS:

After the SSP-10 and the TRs-301, there isn't really much going on with Nimble anyways, you only get 3 more normal quests:
•Get Balanced IL86 from Secret Trader.
•Get the Healing Beril again, which you can buy back from Nimble or go to the Secret Trader. (But this is a stupid quest because you lose money to complete it, the reward for the quest is around 30% of the Suit's value and as far as I know, there is no other Healing Beril lying around somewhere in the game, as the quest's location to get the Suit, is directly on Nimble. It also looks like a copy and paste quest)
•Get the Tourist Suit from Secret Trader.

Though he does say that there are no contracts at the moment, so I am not sure if you can get more items for him if the ingame time passes, give or take, a few days

Yes! Your are right, I just realized, I was travelling mostly with guides, thats why he did not disappeard. So that's a workaround right there.
When I was leaving on foot, he vanished.

This was one of my first workarounds too.
But I found this prohibitive and inflexible. And WTH it's flaky as hell...

Yeah, but at least the developers knows about this now and hopefully it should be Nimble's last bug fix
 
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
