Short Sighted overview

Short Sighted is a Starfield Main quest. Like all other Starfield missions, you can find the full details of Short Sighted in your mission log, and you can easily find your next objective location by following the quest marker, or by entering the scanner mode and following Starfield’s breadcrumb trail.

Short Sighted is preceded by Further Into the Unknown, and followed by No Sudden Moves.

Vladimir needs to perform some upgrades and repairs to the Eye. Several members of Constellation are assisting, and you are required as well.

You can begin Short Sighted by interacting with Vladimir Sall.

Short Sighted walkthrough

Our Starfield Short Sighted walkthrough has you covered for this short mission. Just check out the brief description below to cross this one off and continue on your galactic journey.

  1. Head to The Eye. Check-in with each member of Constellation gathered there. You’ll need to help each of them with a short task.
  2. It turns out that the repairs to The Eye are going to take some time. Talk to Vladimir Sall to complete the mission.

With that, you’re done with our Short Sighted walkthrough and can continue on your epic quest. If you do run into any issues with our Short Sighted guide, head over to our Starfield forum to let us know.

Short Sighted foreshadowing

Spoiler alert for a later Starfield mission:

During Short Sighted, you will be given the option to help Sarah and Barrett with fixing the Eye. Who you help first will massively change events later in the game.

Should you assist Barrett with his computer program first, Sarah’s fixes with the wrenches will go wrong.

Should you assist Sarah with the wrenches first, Barrett’s computer changes will go wrong.

Whoever you help last, and therefore whose task goes wrong, will die in a later quest and no longer be recruitable as a crew member or companion.

Short Sighted mission console commands

If you just want to start the Short Sighted mission, all you need to do is enter the following Starfield console command to begin:

startquest 001B41D1

Be warned that attempting to start a quest that requires specific triggers or hidden markers can result in game instability, so it is recommended you save your game before trying any commands. If however you are encountering a Starfield bug that prevents the mission from advancing, you might want to try the following:

resetquest 001B41D1

The above command will completely reset a quest (make sure you save your game beforehand in case it causes a crash to desktop). It also has the potential to prevent that quest from ever completing, meaning you’ll need to use the completequest 001B41D1 command to progress.
