At the start of my playthrough i was trying to steal some stuff from the second floor of the ranger shop in Stoat(which is owned by Tech Hunters).I KO'd a guard upstairs, stole some bolts from barrels and proceeded to just wait. A slave traders caravan happened to be passing through the town and one of the guys noticed the unconcious guard and tried to enslave him. As he was going down the ladder with a guard on his shoulder, other shop guards started attacking him and yelling "Kidnapper!". A few other slave traders joined to protect their ally, and samurai guards started attacking TH guards as criminals( they all had " commiting assault" crime).
I thought this was just a one-time incident, but i later noticed that the mechanical shop in Stoat(also belonging to TH) just became empty. Now when i enter any UC town, the guards immediately begin clearing out all TH-owned shops and imprisoning all TH NPCs. UC pacifiers are also killed on sight at TH waystations.
Is there a way to stop this? This shop incident happened on day 14, now i'm at day 90 so reloading a save is not an option.
BTW i only have compressed textures&particle fix mods and playing on latest steam version( as of 24.01.20)
I had something similar happen between the Thief's Guild and several other factions. This is my first playthrough. I guess I should probably re-import, I imagine it's kind of ruining things. But I'm reluctant to do so for some reason.
