I'm in the outlands trying to leave through the tailbone portal, which I can hear open and close, and Nordom announces it, but I cannot see it, and therefore cannot click on it.

I have version 1.1 and the fix pack and tweak pack.

Any help, please?

That's -very- strange. Scient actually specifically fixed most problems leading to that.

Have you tried saving and reloading yet? Also, can you post your weidu.log please?

Did reloading and saving work? Also, were you using v3 because that issue should of been solved. Please do post weidu.log.
Those interested in the classic TBS game Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri / Alien Crossover should check out the unofficial patch I work on here.

Luckily, I somehow solved that problem by uninstalling and reinstalling the widescreen UI. However, shortly afterward, when attempting to leave Curst through the portal in the administration building, I ran into another problem. All this portal seems to do is move my party to it. That's it.

There's a portal in an administration building in Curst? Is this before Baator or after? I don't recall what portal you're referring to.

There is an administration building with a door in Curst, but you can't enter that building.

Ooooooh.

Hmmm. Weird. Never heard of a problem with that portal before. It actually used to be almost automatic, if you had a party member close enough to the portal you'd get ported automatically and instantly, and could miss out on looting. SKARDAVNELNATE fixed that so you actually had to click on the portal to leave, and I did that fix as well. Never heard of a problem with it before, though.

Oooh yes you did, but that was when talking to CF before entering the portal, and it was slightly different with stucking in the cutscene.
When you refer to uninstalling widescreen mod, did you mean the bigg's widescreen mod or ghostdog's UI or both (just so we know which might have caused the first one)?

Aaaah, yeah, you're right, that is an issue with that portal, but his description doesn't seem to match that problem. He doesn't mention a custcene starting. Sounds to me like the portal just isn't triggering at all for him. -That- issue I haven't heard before.

Yeah, I reinstalled both bigg's and ghostdog's mods. I don't recall any cutscene taking place, just the dialogue ending and then me being stick with a not working portal. Also, Nordom has te hickups, haha.

It looks like I'm not the only one to have troubles with that portal.

Ok Well two years later, i'm having the same problem.

I defeat Trias, portal appears I click on it, party is teleported with no loading screen to a black section kinda south east of where I was before. No light visible, seems like i'm stuck in a room somewhere. Can walk the party a bit but room is medium-small. If i scroll the map I can see the area I just teleported from.

If anyone has found a solution would very much like to know :P.

mods are fixpack, tweakpack and i think UB. that's it.

also playing through crossover games on a mac.

err, you made a few errors with your report ;)

1 - you didnt say if you are using the latest version of fixpack, tweaks and you guess you installed UB, this doesnt help at all. ;)
2 - you didnt say if your version of planescape is the one with 2 or 4 CDs.
3 - you should have posted the log file that is displayed here in this thread. ;)

aside those, Qwinn and scient disappeared for more than 8 months (scient himself didnt show up at alpha centauri forum with his unofficial patch for the game) so i wondering what happened to them both. :|
