Summary0001653: Unable to complete quest Deus Ex Machina (cannot complete objective to find the machine)
DescriptionAs the summary says, I cannot complete the quest. I'm in the Pyrean machine room, and the objective is not completing. This is preventing me from picking up any of the machine components or progress in the story overall. The companion who follows you for this quest doesn't seem to follow you into the machine room, so maybe that has something to do with it. Using the console commands to trigger the next objective hasn't worked either.
Steps To ReproduceDo quest
Get to machine room
Objective "Find the Machine" does not complete

I've tried reloading an earlier save, reloading the game entirely, disabling/enabling the follower (can't remember her name), using the quest progression commands (as stated above), all to no avail.

Talk to Calia.
If that does not help, please upload a save game before the bug occurred and before you used any console commands.
Saves are located Documents\My Games\Enderal\saves\
Saves consist of .ess and .skse file.

I'm having the same issue. Tried going back to where Calia is and she'll follow me around on the platform, but she won't enter any different areas. I tried spawning her via player.placeatme, but that version of her didn't follow me at all.
Here's what I did: After agreeing to arrest the farmer, I decided to backtrack through the ruins to see if I missed anything. I lost Calia during the backtracking.
I then entered the room with the machine, expecting her to respawn, but she didn't. As the OP said, I'm unable to pick up any of the objective items to progress the question.
I then tried respawning her in the hallway just before the machine room. That version of her didn't follow me. (I never saved the version with the console commands)
I then backtracked and found her on a wooden platform area. She'll follow me around that area (will draw/sheathe weapons as well), but she won't leave that area.
Sharing my save. Hope it helps.

As a workaround, I used the console command: setstage MQ07b 135
This permitted me to proceed with the quest, although, I had to run back and forth between the machine room and the room containing Calia

Sorry, the save I uploaded is after losing Calia. I don't have anything right before the issue occurred, unfortunately. I'm attaching some files prior to entering the ruins. Hopefully, that helps.
