General Quest Dialogue

You may be able to stumble upon a good oil well by chance, but the ICA can’t depend on just dumb luck alone if they want this project to succeed.

A new mod for your Scanner will ensure you always know where to call down Oil Pumps.

Part 1 Dialogue

We’ve got working oil pumps, but the yield will never be what we need if we don’t know where the best wells are. Thankfully we have plans for a new Scanner mod, able to pinpoint any nearby concentrations of nanites. Get us these items and we’ll get one made as soon as we can.

Part 2 Dialogue

Excellent, but you’re not done yet. These are the last components we need, I promise.


  • Deliver 10 Circuit Boards
  • Deliver 5 Miniature Reactors
  • Deliver 5 Interactive Screens


  • 3600 FP
  • x214 ICA Scrip
  • x24000
  • x1 Crude Oil Scanning Module


    • Circuit Boards can be found in BriefcasesLuggage, and as a static spawn across technologically advanced rooms and areas (racks, decks next to PCs, chairs, etc.). Check Comms Tower on Bright Sands.
    • Interactive Screens can be found in technologically advanced areas, such as the Comms Tower on Bright Sands, Staport Admin and Starport Warehouse on Crescent Falls.
    • Miniature Reactors can be easily found in Storage Boxes ( The Cycle Storage Box ). The best way to get these is by doing the Puzzles (power conduits), as the rooms have a guaranteed Storage Box. There’s one at the Water Facility on and East Collection Site on Bright Sands. There’s also one at the Skeleton Observation Site on Crescent Falls. Basically said, whenever you need this item and you see a Puzzle in some POI, then just try to figure it out. It guarantees a Miniature Reactor inside the Storage Box in the room. Check the image below to see what the puzzles look like:

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
