Building one too early might be more than you can handle.Pressing F1 will open the tutorial screen. Mousing over the stats screen and HUD will reveal useful tooltips and additional info.Before asking questions, consider if you can easily answer them yourself.

That one moron that desperately wants to be put on a cross.
Yeah this spot for a base was a bad choice. Never doing beachside property again
>>249948760Beak things are cute!CUTE!!
>Kenshi 2>You start in The Hub>It's a booming part of The Empire>you have to sail or swim from island to island because the sea hasn't catastrophically receded yet
>>249949219>now you really get to play in oriental japan.
>>249948862Yeah i just read this and put him on weights so he could gain STR to hit harder
>>249949219Cant wait to ride Stobe.or be stobe
>Kenshi 2 is the same but skeletons replace the HN and humans are treated like shit
>>249949484I think it's the old empire era, not the second empire
>Can't find a good place to fight people where I wont get eaten and wont also starveJust lemme pass the 20 mark god damnit
>>249949543I don't think this shitty engine and shitty Chris can handle something like a high tech setting. >1fps walking into a city>everybody has ranged weapons>no excuse for not having vehicles
Can a solo martial artist take on waves of enemies and not, you know, die horribly? Let's say I pass 50 in MA and dodge and decent str/toughness/dex, can I fight a pack of dust bandits basically solo or will I always need a bitch or two alongside me to divert attention at least?
>>249949543Nah it's definately 2nd empire era because IIRC its only a paltry 1000 years ago, which would be the time things started going tits up
>>249949543>>249949784It's definitely going to be the second empire.
Reminder this is what happens to BIGOTS being rude to SHEK mommies
>>249949784Depends on what you mean by high tech. I get the impression that Kenshi 2 will go for a techno-fantasy fiction setting like Xenogears. On the surface most people will be living like peasants but then there will be crazy shit like guns, airships, and giant robots.
Oh yeah does anyone know if you can change the ''profile picture'' for things, like my beak thing Bwak isn't even in the frame and it bothers my autism
>>249950180Beep's first kill in my game was a "Hero"
>>249950419what's up with that helmet?
>>249950465>Lord Nagata: I can't afford that.Yeah I'm gonna call bullshit on that.
>>249949348WE AREMENOF THE SEA
>>249949824Finally someone else has taken up the mantleI may die in peace now
>>249950223Old Empire was spacefaring sci-fi niggers
>>249951154They will be spacefaring hungry hobos
post waifus and husbandosI really can't find a good set of pants to give my shekfu
>>249951267woah lay off the dried meat Shek-chan
>>249951154Maybe the wealthiest of them, but 99% of people can still live in destitute peasant-like conditions.
What is a nice isolated hill or similar location where I can just put an outpost without needing extensive (and ugly) fortified walls? aka pic related.
>>249951846Martial Artist Greenlander that never runs and is the bodyguard of a noble, lets go
>>249949824Come on big money.
Hubert human made some new fleshy friends.
>>249949484that would be interesting
>>249950179>armor king will be the beleaguered apprentice of a blacksmith beating plates into shape in the back of a shop in Catch
>>249949824The quirks are fucking stupid. I'm not doing that.
>>249952947>no lootinghow is that even possible??
Getting to the United Cities with Hivers is hard.
>>249952896>same game but 10 different dialogue linesyeah real interesting
>>249952840i befriended crab-raiders : -)
How long do these shrieking bandits plan to ransack my outpost?What do they want? They've been here days
>>249942090I cheated recruited the spider foreman and he had 71 field medic and 1 robotics. It's probably just an oversight, because giving enemy characters noncombat skills that reflect their role is a luxury feature.
How can i farm leather?
>>249953685refer to>>249952840or just kill beak things
>>249953685River Raptor packs
>>249950180City heroes have poor survival instinct.
>>249949219Better be fucking bigass sea monsters
>>249953685Settle in Vain
>>249953685the diverse fauna mod lets some creatures that are typically in other biomes wander through other places now. Maybe that'll let you have more game to hunt.that or you can just move to places with more fleshy animals.
>>249953020No looting from bodies, eeasy
fragment axe or falling sun?
>ITT: devilish things you do>be settlement near the pissed of rabbits ear>get lots of cannibals that attack and lots of tech hunters that like to patrol my settlement>however when the cannibals raid the tech hunters leave beforehand>fucking freeloaders>lightbulb.jpg>build two gates so that they build sort of a “airlock” system. >Whenever a raid gets announced let the tech hunters out into the space between the gates and then close both with them inside >the raiders break through the first gate and then curb stomp the tech hunters and run off with their bodies leaving my base relatively unharmed, other time the tech hunters win and leave me a shitload of shitty first aid kits.
y'all need more fukn webms
What makes the best runner for totally legal mercantile activities? A worker/prince stickman with 100 athletics and robot legs seems like the best possible choice right now.
>>249955472and it is.
>tfw soldier drones are worthless around most of the map because they have almost 0 protection from weathernice
>>249955626Hmm. Oh would you look at that, Beep seems to have gotten himself lost in the fog islands. It would be a shame is something were to happen to him...
Why is Shem so mystical and beautiful bros
>>249958809I don't know but I was real fucking grateful to see it after running from columns of fucking fire trying to burn me alive on the way back from selling slaves in the Great Desert.
>>249959163>columns of fucking fire trying to burn me alive onThat's venge, not Shem
>>249959218Which is why I was happy to be in Shem, because it's not Verge.
>>249958809weird combination of sand and pools of water
>>249958809the name shem sounds pretty mystical, the desert oasis thing is beautiful both seen in the map and when you get there and it is relatively safe compared to the neighboring areasit's also a free land, no one really annoy you there
how to train attack after 50?
Got a real genius on our hands
>>249959462I should have set up shop there. Maybe I'll move there later.
>tech hunters and UC at war in every city>tech hunters shop completly free of guardswell i'm not gonna say no too free real estate
>>249959462Ahem yes it's safe and nobody annoys you here yep
>>249960032Start a war with one of the main factions and train on their troops, you will get fucked up at the beggining just how it was when you started playing. But it will train you fast, both att and def.
>>249960257It's pretty cool to build on, I think my city has a lot of potential
>find a Dust Boss bandit with a 2000c. bounty with the Shek kingdom near the Hub>Spend ages trying to aggro him away from his camp without the rest of his fuckbuddies>Finally cheese him down with the help of the bar ninjas>Get attacked by literally every starving vagrant in a 20 miles radius while on my way to SquirnThis is a whole lot of work for what is basically roleplaying.
Is Mask Type III craftable?I made a statless version with the fashion kenshi mod and while it looks a little goofy looking at it head on it still looks better than I thought it would. I know Kana has one but is that all?
>>249960438Shem is 100% devoid of life
>>249960438i mean if you are a weak ass nigga then yes you aren't safe, but you can kill these factions (dust bandits, band of bones, black dragon ninjas) way too easily and you aren't annoyed by any other major or minor faction, besides shitty hobos and wildlifeyou also get nice hive caravan visits
>>249960625>attack something you character(s) can't defeat legitimately>have a hard time getting back to the city because your shitty guy has low str>wow why is this so hardgit gud my man
Wait so i joined Traders Guild, and now i can't buy stuff from Wandering Traders anymore?I can only pick up their garrus and steal shit
>>249960915>a horde of shitters oneshotting your gate and rushing your walls isn't annoying
Is martial arts worth leveling and if so how the fuck do i even do it?
How hard is it managing multiple outposts?I set up in the foglands and I think I want to move, mainly because the only visitors I get are endless hordes of fogmen and HN. I spoiled myself a little with reactive world so I know that if I continue on my current trajectory I will lose mongrel as well which will make getting supplies a bit more difficult.
>>2499612371. Get beat up a lot2. That's pretty much it. The more you get beat up, the more you'll level toughness and dodge, which will let you survive fights longer and do more damage. Also it is worth it, but you still need someone else to tank for you as martial artists are all glass cannons.
>>249960868So wait, you're telling me that not only can I farm food in Shem but an alarming amount of training dummies/slaves will come to me? Holy shit sign me up.
I threw this guy in a jail cell after he got his ass kicked by Trade Ninja guards and thought I'd recruit him. He demanded 20k monies and I paid him because he looks worth it. One of you probably thinks this is cheating but I could have just enslaved him with the slave mod and forced him to join me for nothing. Fuck the rules.
>>249961149at least in my outpost i could ignore them completelyeven the BDN raids
When is that guy going to finish the doll mod textures do you think? I'm mildly invested in this story.
>take hivers into Okran's Pride>they make up less than half of my party>Paladins attack meFucking why
https://youtu.be/BTN6W-hUOsE?t=14Outpost lasted two days.
>>249961237They start out ridiculously weak but get massive gains down the line. >Levels up STR, DEX and TGH at the same time with two of them directly affecting DMG scaling as well>Does blunt DMG that's superior to cut in late game>Gain new moves as MA skill goes up with some having massive DMG increases compared to beginner moves or hitting twice in a row>Robot arms increase DMG further and Industrial Lifter gives a hefty percentage STR boost to top it off>Dodge seems superior to blocks in terms of survivability, actually to the point you'll have a hard time hitting things because your character will be dodging nearly all the time if they don't have friends keeping aggro>Bad AoE capability compared to long weaponsSo far I've been having fun punching off limbs and I'm not even near stat or skill caps, and haven't equipped robot limbs yet on this run. Just get your ass kicked a lot against foes that won't bother to finish you. I slowly but surely cleared the Tower of Goats with my current guy and doing all of it gave quite a bit of EXP to all relevant skills.>>249960867Yeah, but I don't remember where you get the blueprint.
>>249961574I have made a mistake. I destroyed all 3 bandits faction before I set up this outpost. It's pretty comfy though.
>>249966439i m p o r t
I have a comfy little base set up on my first playthrough, but am I bit stuck as I have no money and not sure what to do from here. Was gonna make hash and sell in Worlds End, but I need some starting capital.Any suggestions?Side note: I wanna start a second side playthrough with a slave start, should I go bug or skele?
>>249965206I think they have to be enslaved when you're just walking around with them. Even when they're within my walls in Okrans some HN patrols and prayer day guys will get pissed, I have to tell them that they're my servants
>>249953104not really hivers are acidproof you can just sprint though blackdesert
>>249967137Bastards took Beep's right leg.
>>249966579Hope a major city glitches and no NPCs spawn in there and loot the entire city like i did.
>>249967536>not importing if this happensSad!
Where can I find a blueprint for the paladin's cross?
>>249950180Someone will drink his victory milkshake tonight, eh?
>>249967696In the HN wep shop or in Black Scratch
>>249951267I want to be hugged by her
>Remake my base the 6th time.I'm pretty sure there will be more because my autism demands it.
fuck this outpost radius bullshit
>>249967536>not raising an army and taking the city by force instead.
>>249968009Is there a bp for the holy chest armour?
>>249969123Has to be modded in, bro. Otherwise, the unholy version does the same thing save for the color.
>>249966579Where is that, Okran's Pride? Kick the shit out of hungry bandits and drag them up to Stoat to sell. A slaver squad roaming the desert can make serious cash. Nice sally gate by the way.
Will Chris implement some sort of running attack? Chasing an enemy then stopping to attack is fucking retarded
>>249971016Yep, prides been good to me so far, especially with the double gate up, I have no problems.Also, I wasn't aware of this because I'm new, I can sell the bodies of dudes I beat up? That sounds amazing
>>249971545that would make scouts/fast characters way too OP, that's something a fucking CHEATER would want.
>>249971902>I can sell the bodies of dudes I beat up? That sounds amazingAs long as they're not dead, yes. Patch them up with first aid and carry them to a slave shop. You'll get like 700-1400 each for them.
So what the hell am I supposed to do to get better at fighting? I started out rock bottom and mined for a week to get a robot arm, but I can't even fight vagrants. Training dummies only work until about skill five, and I only have three guys in my squad. Should I set up an outpost? I know it's a pussy move but I keep reloading because a vagrant farmer with a stick kills me. I have armor, weapons, etc.
These people are retarded.
>>249972101Anything I should be working towards in terms of exploration? I keep hearing about ruins and stuff and other than the few I encountered on my way from the great desert to the hub, I haven't gotten to see much.My entire party is still pretty weak by the way
would anyone happen to have a copy of "Sexy Dark Chainmail" mod? was deleted from Nexus, I also deleted my copy when I reinstalled the game since I wanted a fresh modlist.RIP.here's the deleted site page https://www.nexusmods.com/kenshi/mods/196?tab=articles
>>249972847That's pretty hot though
>>249972101Why do I always get offered 400?
>>249973107>>249973686Sorry, guess the higher price is from the Players Slavery mod.>Anything I should be working towards in terms of exploration?Ruins are a source of income and research artifacts. You'll probably get massacred if you mess with most of them.
>>249973998I guess I'll just get beat up until my boys are stronger
>>249974303Well the United Cities and Great Desert is a good place to do so since most of the time instead of being left to bleed out in the dust you'll get enslaved and dragged to a camp where you can get your ass beat and healed repeatedly until you escape.
>>249973686Was their stat shit? I think if their stat are higher you are offered more cats
>>249954520Oh I wouldn't worry about that.
>>249975757>they would have been alive before the oceans went downoh god oh fuck I didn't mean it
God damn merchant bugmen are some persistent little fuckers.
>>249971545The JP weapon anim mod has this
how would you rate weapon classes from best to worst?
>>249978249Polearms > HW > Hackers > Katanas = Sabres > MA > BluntXbows are broken tier and I just pretend they don't exist
All I want for Kenshi 2 is the fucking male chin slider
>>249979102Is your chin that recessed in real life?
>>249960867yes it is, I believe you can get the blueprint at the great library in black scratch
Imagine UNIRONICALLY settling in the swamps
>>249966439this looks like it's a pain for you to get in and out, not just the bandits
>>249980694I did once, biggest mistake ever. nonstop blood spiders and tax collecting.
Started a new playthrough after getting bored with my squad.Say hi to Bingo and Bongo.This two bad boys are currently stripping naked and imprisoning any Holy Sentinel they see to plan out an escape once there are few left.Currently they have good stealth and lockpicking with decent toughness and dodge. Bingo almost won a 2v1 duel with a naked sentinel once helped by another escapee.Bongo lost a leg last night after attempting to knock out a guard, he's still trying his best by getting out at night to free the prisoners around him.
>>249981641Im in love with bongo
>>249981641I think now is the most perfect time to ask, why do you guys like making horrible abominations in the character creator? I cant stand all the clipping and the novelty wears off quickly.
>>249980989you can allways just delete and rebuild a pieces of wall. though I think it's fine. besides free swimming lessons. now I got a good reason to explore more than always run back to my cozy little base after any fetch quest.
>>249981902It's funny to look at and builds character
mod update for yall, skip if you don't care:so bandits are absolutely fucking everywhere now. reworking all these has been the main holdup. the dynamics at the new Holy Mine scheme is almost exactly how I think it should be, Bad Teeth and Stack have each seen around 12-16 hours of work each the last two days, oddly enough, Blister Hill is easier to configure by a large margin.
>>249951654whoa, where is that?
>>249982364what mod?I'm new around here
>>249982618Thank you for the quick reply!Is it just me or is Kenshi sorely missing a limiter removal for the NPC creation. I want to see monsters and messed up faces in my world, screw immersion dammit
>>249982785Not that anon but you know how the game has world states? Like if you kill a guy a town becomes different? Turns out the whole system was fucked up and incomplete so one crazy anon is fixing it. But not only fixing it, but adding world states for basically every conceivable situation along with inter-faction wars.
>>249982785TLDR: local autist goes on rampage fixing world states because chris won't, even went so far as contacting him and learning to code/asking for help from his professor.He's so invested he wants to be hired, I say he should stop working on it until he gets paid for all his work.
>>249982905you don't need a mod for that, you can do that yourself by editing txt files.
>>249982785Realpolitik>>249982925>>249982947Just having some good old fashioned fun with the computer.>I say he should stop working on it until he gets paid for all his work.I don't disagree, but its actually gotten to a point where I can balance it with my life needs. Nothing really to worry about except for living on a shoestring budget for the time being. I'll have to work a lot more in the summer to make up for some lost ground.
>>249982905There's "everyone is scary" mod that alters npc slider chance distribution
Oh hey it's my favorite anime again! Ganbatte, autisto-kun!
>>249983503I doubt so
>>249951654Basically everywhere in the Fog Islands.Directly south of Mongrel, the first or second hill is a spot where all you need it to put a gate on one side and two walls on the other.Getting iron from that hill is going to require an ore drill, because the resource is right below the hill.
>>249980694That was my first base. After every single Swamp Raptor in existence was murdered, there was literally nothing that could threaten me.
>>249985368a shame we can't sell rotten meat to bugbois. The raptor corpses could feed thousands of them.
Does height affect combat? I swear to god it feels like my manlets take way more hits to the head than anyone else
>>249985838If I'm not misstaken combat is based on animation hitboxesif so then height most definitelly affects it
>set worker to forage dead animals>ignores the dead Sheks lying on the groundgame is feature complete guys!
>>249986994Sheks aren't animals
>>249987176t. filthy okr*nite
>>249949219Kenshi/Windwaker crossover, sounds chill af bro
hey how about we create a slave labour force consisting of superhuman strength androids but we also give them human emotions, the will to live, and have them be depressed all the time?t. first empire
>>249987496robo emotions are some kind of 'bloatware' that the devs put because there was a lot of empty storage space and they thought 'eh why not'
Guys I've finally kicked myself to install new SSD just for this game.Is it safe to just drag it there, or do I have to reinstall it?
>>249987992Just drag it
>>249989282yep, it's fineand holy fuck it's fast
>>249987276>birdbois fucking op because they can ignore half of the game mechanics since they don't need to swim or use botesIt's broken already
>>249990057but wont it fuck your ssd up?I have ony one small-ish ssd as my windows drive, should I do it?
>>249949219God I hope chris doesn't have a 'tismdown and deletes any cool ideas cause people happens to chance on what his idea was.I've seen it happen, its awful especially if they consider themselves the creative type.
>>249990464>but wont it fuck your ssd up?dunno what you mean by that>I have ony one small-ish ssd as my windows driveI have another SSD as the boot drive.As I've said, I literally bought this one just for this game.
going to spend a few hours at the library, landlord is doing showingshad some fun conversations last night, seems I'm just never going to agree with some people.
Fella that make these custom hairs ever release em as a mod?
>>249991681Don't think he did yet, even though he said he would once he figured out how.We can only wait, hope, and pray.
>>249985061Wait, you definately need walls for the fog islands Unless you want your dudes kidnapped in their sleep...though, honestly , it seems like just locking your doors completely kills their aggro
>>249987496Not a bad idea my fellow First Empire Citizen. But why stop there? Let's treat them like utter shit as well despite their utter obedience and ignore the fact they could easily annihilate us due to being superior in every way!
First escape attempt didn't go so wellApparently guards are able to recognize two starved hivers wearing some of their's armor.

Best place to settle for me and my shek harem?
>>249995619Fishman island.Nowhere more fuckable than fishman island.
>>249993183Not always. In some areas you only need walls covering a few spots since cliffs protect you elsewhere
>>249995619fishman island right by the bridge is very comfy
>>249995693>>249996081Are the fishmen tougher than cannibals? My first idea was to settle on the cannibal plains
>>249996436no, they are too dumb too use weapons.
>>249996481Should be fun to try out, thanks
>>249996867I actually don't know if fishman island is a good idea, I just agreed with the other anon as a joke but you should definetly try it out anyways
>>249990464SSD only "wears" when it's saving data. Reading it doesn't do anything detrimental. That said, it was mostly a thing with early SSDs, so unless you play a game that does nothing but save data (there were some), it should outlast virtually every HDD.>>249993183The spot I circled literally requires a single gate and two full-sized pieces of wall to wall off the entire hill. Unless you want to have two entry points, then it's 2 gates and 1 wall.Most hills in Fog Islands are like that, but you are going to need more walls if you want to settle in one of valleys below.>>249996436They are basically cannibals, except they all try to punch you instead (except their leader, he has a Meitou Combat Cleaver)
>>249997154>SSD only "wears" when it's saving data. Reading it doesn't do anything detrimental. That said, it was mostly a thing with early SSDs, so unless you play a game that does nothing but save data (there were some), it should outlast virtually every HDD.not him but the size of Kenshi saves is rather huge, wouldn't that be a problem then?
>>249994057That's why I stack save types of barrels on top of each other and space them out.
>>249997232Yeah, but the games in question were saving something (everything) to the drive literally all the time.In comparison, saving 200MB (my autosave after ~270 days) once every 10-15 minutes is nothing.
Got an hefty sum of cats after cashing in a bounty, should i buy an house and do some research? any way to get some of the cash back by using said house or i need a settlement to not be costantly scrounging up cash for food?
>Can't you just reset when you get too depressed?>Sure, but then we reset our skills, too. That's how you end up with legends like Cat-Lon...Straight from the skeletons mouth.
>>249997672A settlement can be self-sufficient and you may end up with high enough food production to get by perfectly fine with exactly zero cats even with large squads. Unless you have hydroponics you can't really sustain yourself in a city like that.>>249997763That'd explain why Sadneil has no skills.
>>249997763Which speaks to that the stat cap for certain bosses should probably be unreachable by the player. Why isn't Cat-Lon set to roughly 120+? He's not unkillable, but still unapproachable in terms of skill. Why does six months of hard training mean you can challenge the ex-Emperor in-game?
>>249998467He pretty much is the Satan of this game. Hell, he even goes down easily if you crossbow his ass. And the claim that all the legends don't compare to Cat-lon? Its true.Bugmaster and Esata went down like a sack of bricks.
I'm bored with Mourn, and it turns out me living there is very detrimental to the locals because there's a never ending stream of beakthings that make you have to import after like a week because so many people die that even the caravans stop showing up.The only problem is I keep staring at the map and can't decide where to live now. I'd like somewhere that at least has a city nearby so I can buy and sell stuff if I want.
>>249997021Can confirm Fishman Island best isle. It has resources and is isolated enough you won't get taxed.
>>249998975There's always Fog islands if you don't mind the Wrees not to mention you can make an easy living hunting princes.
>>249999278Mongrel has a similar issue over time. Though it takes a lot longer the fogmen will slowly whittle down the local guards and especially the shinobi thieves
>>249999086Fighting Lovecraftian fishfucks is nice too
>Get spotted by some fucking nobody in the middle of nowhere>Kill them in one blow>Still toggle over to escaped slave from ex-slave and have to wait another 120 hours for the shitty status to go awayEvery FUCKING time.
>>249999351The other placrs where you are left alone and close to a city that I can think of are: Deadlands if you're a skelly and don't need food as it comes with a convenient acid pool and acid rain.Howler Maze, though you will get harassed by reavers, slavers and the occasional crab group.I gotta try settling in other areas now that I think about it.
>>249999694Did you know that all of the NPCs and even your buds use telepathy? The skeletons would never say that to you, right?

>>249997629What games are you talking about? Why would a game even write constantly to disk?
>>249997154>SSD only "wears" when it's saving dataI honestly doubt video games do this more often than OS processes.Windows temp probably BTFO's any game any day in sheer volume of shit it writes and deletes all the time.
New anon here, if I move kenshi to SSD would it run better?
>>250001236>2019>not gaming exclusively from an SSD
>>250001236It will load game and cells much fasterwarningmy mods got all fucked because I fucked with them and stringed refs from one mod to another like a madman instead of actually making my own modsdon't do thatif you just use mods as they were you should be alright
Have you paid your respects recently, /keng/?
man what a broken fucking pile of trash this game is, it's insanefucking crashes every 30 minutes with the message 'this'll be fixed very soon :) ', pathfinding is ass, world is empty and fucking boring, goddamn waste of my time as soon as the fucking slave traders enter my base, game crashed, regardless of how far back i load the game from, how can this shit be released like this

>>250000702Literally in the pic in the comment you responded to.I noticed that Task Manager can lie quite a lot when it comes to disc usage, but even a third of the value shown would be pretty bullshit.>>250001073Ultimately it depends. In "idle" my W10 writes at most 100KB/s with very short spikes up to 1MB/s.>>250001236>>250001325Yes, but it depends. I noticed next to no difference personally, so probably Kenshi bottlenecks hard and at some point SSD simply can't contribute anything over HDD.>>250001764She has no abs. Give her some Meatwraps, for Okran's sake.
>>250003467why whould you help them in the first places? they can easily feed themself if they could just mine some copper, instead they choose to kill travelers for scraps. I said kill them all. kill every single lazy fuck out there and feed them to gutter.
How the fuck are you supposed to get anywhere in this game?I died during first fight. 11 fucking times in a row. I'm not even looking for a fight.
>>250004851Usually I just roll over them but right now I'm getting my walls set up in Shem and could do without them mobbing my workers
>>250005009Mine and sell ores to buy better equipment. Beat up people that are weaker than you. Buy a shack and imprison a crippled hobo in it to use as a punching bag until they die and then replace them.

>>250008039It's not all acidic there, only the shore
>>250006413Sounds like a luxury feature.
So I've come across some peculiar feature/interaction.Basically Reavers' raids spawn almost right in front of my gate and immediately fail. Could it be, because I have a Reaver Ironclad in a cage?
>>250008469Oh shitI'm savescumming this in case you're lieing
So heres an interesting thing I've noticed.Theres loads of little flying robots in some areas.And they have the same "core" as the spider robots. I wonder how they're still flying

>>250011558Not sure about the name or location, but I got a pretty good idea for a banner.
>tfw want to start a new save>tfw have to abandon all my characters I've raised lovinglyMy main guy just isn't cutting it any more (which is a bit of a pun with the meitou hacker he got), I find him boring for some reason. I'm considering doing a farmer/trader/town start, is it possible to like drop raids to 0 and START as a town, then import and pick them back up when I've got some defenses up? The idea being I'd hire like 5-6 people with 0 food, establish the town and it'd be a huge fucking struggle until I have walls and to somehow feed them. Obviously if I leave raids on I'll be dead in about 5 minutes anyway...
should I play first without mods or is there no reason to skip on some essential mod/patches that only add to the game without changing it?
>>250012837Its like a bethesda game. Sure you can play it without mods but really you wont get anything out of it that way.
Wait, how do I increase/decrease bandit raid frequency? Doesn't seem to show up in options, but I've seen people here post they do it
>>250013402>Doesn't seem to show up in optionsI suggest you take another look
>>250013524Ah yeh I was looking at like the advanced options when I import a game. So does this mean if I start a game with it low I won't have any, then I start and change it to high I will have a lot? You know what I mean, can I just change it dynamically to affect a save?
>>250013681it's accessible in the options while the game is loaded and it doesn't even have"(needs restart/imort)" next to it, so common sense dictates it works in real time
>>250014092Common sense dictates a lot of things I've found out are false in Kenshi. Thanks!

>>250016603yeah it isonly mods i use are fixes or small ornamental stuff
>>250017414I couldn't even get through the Skyrim prologue ride without mods. Fun as fuck those Bethesda games.
>>250016603It is, but mods will definitely enhance the experience.

>>250017414with standards like that, even sorting screws will be fun
Mongrel doesn't make sense Chris
can you grow vegetables and wheat in swamps irl?
Is there a reason why NPCs from town/cities keep multiplying? Is my save fucked?
>>250017980>irlyou can grow wheat in Antarctica, Sahara or fucking space
>>250017757I really don't care what you think.
>>250018082sex, so yes, it is fucked
>>250017757Mongrel never existed, it's just a hologram. neurotoxin(the fog) make you believed they are still alive. beep is an illusion in your brain all along.
>>250016603kenshi is prime example of game where you make your own funyou can grind all the way to top tier gear and trucks of cahs by doing nothing but mining and crafting if you find it fun you sick bastardor you can do into the world unprepared getting your shit kicked in repeatedly getting slightly stronger each time it happensthe choice is truly yours
>>250017980Swamps are mostly just water, roots and rot.I'm sure you could if you found a big patch of mud but I think it would drown or rot most of the time.The stagnant water can't be good for the ground PH level, wheat is strong but not that strong.
I found the deadlands too depressing so I removed the acid rain, the acid in ground and water, added pleasant weather, nicer background music and birds to it. Much nicer now. It's also really fertile.
>>250018203Oh well, time to start a new playthrough.
>>250018714just import without the box for dead npcs checked. Will probably fix the problem.
>>250017757Not interested in discussing how realistic things are in an game w/ talking bugmen and Brachiosaurus which runs at 30+ mph
>>250018661I mean, look at germany and west russ. They're mostly sogland and they managed to feed their unwashed hordes.
>>250019037Calling refugees as unwashed hordes isn't very nice..
>>250018990fantasy worlds still need to be internally consistent
>>250019138I mean nowdays don't count we just import from china or america. Good soil there.
Why did I settle in Heng? This fucking tax nigger won't leave me alone. How am I supposed to live out my ancap fantasies like this?
>>250017757Neither does the swamp having no bandages for sale when something literally named after bleeding is the second most common animal going around.
>>250019391hack into the old control tower and send your new recreational orbital Mcspace laser to the city Heng for violating the NAP
>>250019391You settle in the cannibal plains
>>250019670Once I figure out how to farm cactuses this is next on my list. Rothbard would be proud.>>250019756I still am on my first character, started as rock bottom so I'm groping around in the dark like a retard
Fellas, serious question here, is dex important for heavy weapons or just str? I've been griding dex on my dude that uses a falling sun but I've read somewhere that only strength increases heavy weapon dmg and speed.
>>250020584Yes dex increases swing speed, to a point because individual weapons have a hidden swing speed table. Dex is more important because of the cutting damage, which is important if you wanna bleed your samurais out of their armor.
>literally any fight ever>"Beep is dead"hmm
>>250020584Dex dictates swing speed and cutting damage. In general all weapons benefit from dex for swing speed while some weapons benefit more due to higher cut/blunt ratio
I want to build a crab army
Hey /keng/ do any of you know a way to quickly explore the map? preferably without having to load cities and npc's. I want to see the cool terrain and shit like >>250001413 and >>249975757 without having to make a character that sprints through the world.
post your SPOOKY stories!

This guy is a fucking terminator.
>>250022943Make a cripple hiver with 100 athletics and give him masterwork athletic legs.He'll reach something like 60mph. You'll be hitting the "loading" even while going at normal speed.
>>250023458Damn is it really walled off with that small wall? I've been looking at a place in Kenshi with natural walls for fucking forever
>>250024903also check out this place in the fog islands then
>>250025153Don't like settling in the fog islands, aesthetic throws me off
>>250025227Don't forget the city which doesn't make sense
>>250025573>doesn't make senseWhy not
>>250025625don't listen to this guy it makes perfect sense because they are eating fogmen. Ignore the food the barkeeper sells.
>>250019867Jesus christ I have to pay taxes to the Trader's Guild too? What is this bullshit
>>250026370taxation is theft and tax collectors existence is an inherent violation of the NAP. There is only one solution
>>250026461I agree. I can't even turn a fucking profit with these cocksuckers constantly getting "protection." This is plunder and must be stopped.
>>250025227>aesthetic throws me offCan't imagine whycrunch
>>250026520just go to Tengu and do his quest and you won't have to pay taxes to the trader's guild anymore
>>250026520Settle in the holy nation. No taxes, only love and devotion
>>250026660This asshole says I can get a permanent membership. That has to cheaper than the 4000 cats a week this nigger wants
>>250026363I mean, there's hydrophonics in the game, isn't there?
>>250026780Where else can I settle? Do I have to suck priest cock to be allowed to settle?
>>250026998You can just shoot them in the head and be done with it.
Are "cats" named after Cat-Ion? Like Septims in TES games?
>>250025625Mongrel attempt at misdirection, its run by mad scientists with mind fogging tech gathering escaped slaves to dig up giant robots. The whole thing is a machinist plot to conquer the world that's why the Holy Nation is building a statue at Rebirth but its actually a cover for their giant mech to fight the revived behemoths at the end times.As expected of Lord Phoenix's brilliance.
fogmen are thicc
>>250027556No, do you really think that Chris can do that kind of world building? I mean look at mongrel for example
>>250027556I've read the term "Catun Credits" somewhere, therefore not I think.
>>250027601Seeing the forest of hands and stobe for the first time, might as well be true.
>>250027556their name comes from a literal who city with some retard smiths
>>250026998S H E M
>>250027770>>250028009why would the name of the universal currency be based off something from fucking shreks of all things?
>>250028114catun is a south UC city retard
>>250028194catun scrapmasters are shreks retard
>>250028060If I ever find it I'll settle there. Fuck the desert, fuck Heng
>>250028356what the fuck you on abouteven if they were, catun scrapmasters are called catun scrapmasters because of the city they are in, not the other way around
>>250028448come to the Swamp instead
>set raids to minimum to try and do a start as a town with 0 tech or anything>first day after I put a mine down>bandit demands>ok I just let them raid me and leave, they just steal stuff right>they get stuck in small shack unable to get out10/10 game surely time for a sequel
>>250029085FEATURE COMPLETE. You're asking for some of that luxury features
>>250029085You need to buy yourself the interior objects research and build some interior walls in front of the doors.
>>250029331>need to put walls in front of doors so bandits don't get stuck in your houseI'm just imagining explaining this game to someone who asks how the sequel will be
>>250027601Clearly there is a plot between Elder, Cat-Lon and the Phoenix to revive Stobe and his brethren to take the world.
>>250029085>set raids to minimum>build an outpost>cant fucking fight some dust banditsthat what you get, outposts will never be an early game thing no matter how much you try to cheat the game.
>>250029085>they get stuck in small shack unable to get outNPCs can take your outpost if you let them, just hover the icon on the outpost and you'll see the current habitants.
>>250030148>try to cheat the gameI'm trying to roleplay nigger, one could say modding is equally cheating. If I want to try out a village start, I'll try out a village start and autistically REEEEEEing against it isn't gonna make your life less worthless and suicide a worse option
>>250030148Not him, but how early-game are you talking? I'm at day 32 and I don't know if an outpost is the right choice.
Okay so-What's the best armour for endgame skeletons? Heavy armour with tons of body protection while neglecting the head or weaker armour that provides some head coverage in the hopes it'll absorb the more powerful blows?
>>250030346Nope, still me, they're stuck in there. I did reload an earlier save and dismantled the shack (pointless anyway for now) and something else REALLY fun happened - some hungry bois happened to be running by, got into a fight with the bandits, killed ONLY the leader and now they're at my outpost and sitting there, not moving, not hostile
>>250031275> I'm at day 32 and I don't know if an outpost is the right choice.What's your squad stats? I suggest around 25-30
>>250031430Well that answers that question. I currently have 8 members, 9 if you include my garru. Hard to find people for less than 6k in this desert I find
>>250031315Mix it up. Have Skellies with heavy armor deal with melee and some with the minimal coverage going after archers. This is why the heavily armored headless skeletons make one hell of a melee unit - archers have no heads to exploit.
>>250029932There's a whole bunch in the pit for parts and Stobe just lying there, the whole thing is probably a plot by Beep using you to take down major powers that could hinder him.
>>249991681>>249994349>First world haircut in KenshiIs it?It's like there being mohawk haircuts in Fallout, but Kenshi has no radioactive hairspray to keep it up.It's just long hair, but with the sides of the had shaved.
>>249954667Why are her legs so short? why is her back so long???
I'm really digging Bast, if only if had any ore at all.
>everyone says skeletons are very easy to play with>have had to restart 13 times because EVERY SINGLE first fight I get into leaves me well past critical and even when I hire someone to heal me robo kits run out and it goes from wounded to dying to dead in literally a minuteI mean, I'm sure it gets a lot easier and I can appreciate not having to get food, but this is straight up infuriatingWhy the fuck do robots die so quick after going past wounded??
>>250036116That's besides the point
>>250035476this is the reality I have to deal with in my daily lifeI've only noteced it very recently but everywhere I go, I'm seeing these short disgusting goblins, who seem to be designed by some faggot with equal third obsession, as in the legs, torso and head end up equal fucking length...what the fuck is going on?
>>250035693the only point where skeletons are hard is early game.simply put if you dont have a repair kit you die after the first fight. if you live past 2-3 fights and get your toughness up so you can heal yourself its easy mode.
sorry guys, a whole fuckong lot of OT, but have you ever walk in on a song and, there was a huge, awesome buildup, and then it ended up in a complete wet fart?I'm experiencing this shit a whole lot lately, and I don't know why...
Truly, they are the philosophers of Kenshi.
>>250006323He wouldn't want that
BEHOLDDarth Beep. Needs to lose more limbs
Guess I'm leaving Skimsands after very narrowly defeating a Paladin after being chased across the entirety of fucking Bast. Carrying two people across this desert. Fuck Bast.

>>250040912>>250041750I think he should settle in Venge!
>>250042746Just look up "doll race" on the workshop. The normal one is pretty intrusive and adds way too much in my opinion, so I use the lite version

>>250043841>should I import?yes
>>250043293>The normal one is pretty intrusive and adds way too much in my opinion Yeah I made the original 2 years ago before I knew shit about the lore and was just winging it/it was my first mod ever. I just looked at it one day and was like "wow this is just too much" so I've pretty much switched over to the Lite version.
Which way do I go from Shem to find a city to get more guys at? I have a skeleton arm so I can't go to the holy lands, but that's the only one I've found. Black Desert city didn't have anyone recruitable when I was there.

>>250049221Of course not. They used to be the dominant species, before the skeletons rebelled.

Settled a decent outpost, brought a 3rd character in and getting near-constant crashes to desktop.What the fuck gives?
Yeh it's crashing LITERALLY EVERY TIME I put on 3x speed. This has never happened before. Is there any specific reason I can pinpoint and fix? I don't know if I'm gonna keep playing if 3x speed is totally denied, I've already explored the continent so waiting to cross the entire dessert at 2x....
>>250049752paladin's cross by far

FUCK BEAK THINGS I HATE THEM SO MUCH
>>250041750Yes hello where is the stone>>250057194landbats are worse
>>250052440Fixed it, thanks. I was getting unbelievable ridiculous amounts of hungry bandits and they were cluttering up my screen, I suspect that was it, since importing removed them. Funny, I set the option for bandits attacking outpost to "never" to prevent it (they were the only ones roaming anyway) and...they keep spawning, nothing has changed. GOTY imo.
>>250057194just outrun them retard lol

>>249949219That sounds pretty cool
I want to play as Chris. How can I do so accurately?
I believe I have been tricked. In this pile of blood and corpses are landbats, my security spider, skeleton bandits, some scavengers and now Ranes last good leg has been chopped off.
>>250058098crossbow only, and cheese stealth/assassination. as soon as you get them up knockout every faction leader/boss and find some way to kill them. at that point you've "finished" the game. no luxury features needed
>>250058098Start creating an elaborate town and abandon it halfway through, then begin a new playthrough.
>>250058857why you hating on pegs
>>250059240i hate on legs. that's why nohives are a good joke.
>>250018280>not just thieving everything that isn't nailed downWhy live otherwise?
So I wanna recruit a bunch of dudes from the UC but I don't wanna cross Venge to get back home (fuck Venge). Can I pick them up with my skeleton guys and carry them through deadlands before they die from acid rain?
>>250061221desu thats how i play most games. dick ass thief class. disappointed in how stealth and such works in this game though.. why cant i ram a ninja sword through someones ribs from behind instead of just trying to bonk them??
Stoat was severely lacking in Shinobi, so I made a ninja hideyhole where I can hunt slaves while mass producing Dustwiches and Meatwraps.

>>250055327I'm almost tempted to make a mod that actually put this in, if possible.

>>250063590You're right, that's Cannibal behavior.
>>250063590You've found the Atheist Fogman
>>250063590>>250063709>>250063712Far as I can tell there's this miniscule chance of the AI doing this to anyone tied to a pole or thrown in a cannibal cage since even player characters engage in this bug from time to time.Anyone taken a peek at whether it's objects that trigger cannibalistic interactions rather than character AIs - IE whether fogmen will eat someone in a cage inside a deathyard?
>>250027556>Not getting the culture jokeJapan considers cats to be good financial luck, thats why they have those little retarded mechanical cats in their shops.
>>250064602cats don't exist in Kenshi tho

>>250027556Catun Credits. In the old map Catun was the major city. Chris is just too much of a lazy faggot to think up something else for the new map now that Catun is irrelevant.Oh wait I mean this top tier lore is so deep i wish we could understand it more
>>250065120feed them to a shek mommy
Was I tricked about Shem? I settled here hoping for something a little better, but I have been getting raided almost nonstop by dust bandits, starving bandits, and these black dragon cunts. What gives?
>>250065412Even worse, the handful of times an NPC mentions money by full name, they refer to them as Catans still, because find + replace is too luxurious to bother with.
First playthrough guy here, do you guys recommend recruiting other party memebers before starting to explore a bit or does that actually gimp you in the long run? I'm still fucking around the Hub and Shek territory getting my shit pushed in by bandits and scared to go any further.

>>250067125get party members as you go but dont get more than 5 starting out or you'll quickly hate your game.i find that traveling alone for a while works best. that way you can find what you're going to do and where you're going to live and start from there.just be ready to move from town to town starting out. the more mouths to feed the more tax you have to pay with your cats.
>>250067125Going completely solo might be difficult for a newcomer. Having someone who can save your ass in early game in worst case scenario is useful. Biggest thing to note are KO points that are affected by Toughness stat, because those dictate whether you can regain consciousness in a timely manner after getting your shit kicked in. Basically>you instantly lose consciousness when an attack causes head, chest or stomach go below 0>if the minus health in those body parts is above the KO point cap you're only knocked unconscious for a bit and wake up quite quickly, so you can bandage yourself after the attackers have left>if your minus health is below KO point cap, f.ex. your KO point cap is -20 but your chest health goes to -36 you go into recovery coma instead which means you can't wake up no matter what until head, chest and stomach all recover above 0Last bit means if you're bleeding out to death and are in recovery coma you absolutely need another character to save you. The more you raise toughness the better your cap gets meaning eventually you almost never enter coma even if you go unconscious. But yeah, otherwise keeping your party relatively small may be better since it means they're going to be fighting more foes and getting more EXP (not to mention easier to gear and manage), and likely getting their asses kicked more often also raises vital Toughness. This means you should absolutely rise up and get your shit kicked in again assuming you're fighting foes that won't try to permakill you and won't use highly damaging cut weapons (f.ex. Hungry Bandits or many herbivores), in fact going back into the fray right after being knocked out also nets you extra Toughness EXP.
what mods do you guys use? i finished my vanilla playthrough and want to use mods now but i dont want anything that is going to ruin gamebalance

>>250071136Who mods blood spiders? That's cheating
>>250071136Yes. Just remember, all the legends don't compare to Cat-Lon. Had a playthrough where I hunted down all the legends with just Cat-Lon.
>Vagrants are now you alliesExcuse me?
Hi anons, any idea why "More combat animations" crashes my game? Here's the mods im using
>>250072825Did you give them money? Have enough separate instances where you pay them off/heal them and tuck them to bed and they'll be friendly towards you eventually, no matter how many times you beat them up in the past.
Who's the best (recruitable) polearm user in the base game?
>>250057194Beak things are anti zoomers
>>250073261I didnt know that you can ally with them they don't even show up in the relations page and in fcs their faction marked as real faction: false
>>250074150you can "ally" any faction if you get enough good relations, i remember allying outlaws because i bought a lot of slaves to ally slave tradersthey'll probably just won't attack you and may aid you in battle or healing if they have med kits
But really though how can there be any more dust bandits for me to kill? I've got basically a mountain of bodies

Just started playing this, wanted to share some first impressions.Firstly, games fun. Though at first it was kinda hard to get into the games "logic" that is. Surprisingly enough, as long as you dont DIE, you get insanely strong. Death doesen't appear all that common desu. This was when i started to "understand" the game. Manipulating aggro is an absolute necessity. Makes sense though feels moderately grindy. But damn its fun watching 50 starving men get absolutely ravaged by paladins. Also, some key info i've reasoned*backpacks are great*cargo animals are absolutely worth it*some enemies have an insane bounty*stealth and stealing is broken, so is freeing slavesHavent even built a base but its fun so far. Really liking the game.
>>250077962>Death doesen't appear all that common desu.if you set the difficulty to ''cheery anime'' - sure.
>>250017757The only thing that's weird to me is how the flotsam and Mongrel ninjas only seem loosely affiliated when they seem to have the exact same enemy
so what's with the giant sea urchins anyway
>>250063590>>250063709Think it's intended, my base is right next to a deathyard that is bugged or something because I can't destroy it, and i've seen fogmen do this before as well
>>250078259The non-bandit ninja in general are oddly undeveloped as a whole really, the Trade Ninja in particular are literally who-tier.
>>250065120I worried that the guard population is getting whittled down by all the bull fighting.Guys are bleeding out and losing limbs left and right.
>Send my squad from Heft to Black Scratch>Pan to my Base to fiddle with them while waiting on travel>Notified my guys are getting attacked>Beak things fug>Dispatchno problem alright lets keep going>more beak things>die>wait why are there more beak things>what the hell Someone I'm literally surrounded by an area entirely crawling with beak things>how the hell did i even get this far in here>end up killing like 25 beak things trying to get out of Beak-thing-apolis but ended up losing to attrition>mfw take the long way around Gut now
>>250065640>What gives?They're not Shek niggers, Holy Incels, or United Cuck samurai.
I don't know how anyone can consider the game finished when it was literally shipped with hotkeyed debug tools. What a joke.
>>250078676tfw live in gut now
>>250078931why are you able to build walls like that while I can only build the huge ones? Is it a mod?
>>250079241oh I see, thanks
>tfw day 3 and already 37 toughness from getting beat up by hobosI'm not even tryharding, the masochist approach to this game is just too strong
>Rane the Giant has died
>>250079932tune up damage and prepare for coma.
>>250068920>New weapon disseminationAdds a lot of new weapons. The author caught the style of kenshi so perfectly you legitimately cannot see the difference between vanilla weapons and his.>Recruit Prisoners/Recruit Everyone/Tame BeastiesFun it you want to build an army by fulton extracting enemies and convincing them to join you, only instead of using fultons you have to manually carry the guy all the way to your base.>Random Enemies Squad NumberMakes roaming npc squads have a more random size. On the normal setting with this mod you can get bandit squads with as few of 3-4 bandits up to 50-60.The rest of my mods are a bunch of qol stuff like more item in shops and esthetic stuff like breast slider, faces and hair.
>>250080502You should have taken more care of your giant shekfu, anon.
>>250080502>Rane the giant has died
>>250078803they are incels in a sense that if their state didn't mandate a (not exactly willing) wife per every male - they'd be frequent /pol/ posters on the threads in which the kissless virgins complain about 'the vaginal jews'.In a less serious tone - the common holy nation citizens think that the women from the outside lands eat men's dicks after sex. The holy incels deserve to be bullied for being so stupid.
>>250081726their closest neighbors are rabid fog insects, and some male insects tend to get eaten by their mate after sex.
>>250064185>>250063590>>250063709That shit can happen with literally any NPC that can throw you into a cage or on a pole.Also... wasn't that supposed to be fixed in one of latest patches?
>>250082418I'm convinced that's how it is for Sheks btw. I mean Esata has a daughter but where is her husband?
>>250082915>but where is her husband?he got eaten by Esata, whole and alive.
>>250082915He is either irrelevant or was some otherwise nameless nobody who beat her up for breeding rights and isn't actually her "husband". That'd sound about right considering Shek social ladder.
>>250084192that would mean that the shek sometimes fuck their children, unknowingly, decades later.
>>250080546Alright, so what's a good damage multiplier setting?
>>250081726did the local paladin chads beat you up again?
>spend 500 in-game days building up RP faction made up of runaway HN women>get shit every time I posted for it>give up and restart>discover flostam ninjas
>>250085470Not the guy you're replying to, but in my game they took Beep's leg. They're going to pay for that.
>>250084832that would explain how they look
>>250085667A hiver losing his legs is LITERALLY an improvement though.
>>250084192>implying its not bayans>Implying seta didn't do a disonorabru thing and fucked a wimp
>>250085457honestly? I'll said 2. higher than that will just be meme. 360 no scope spring bat headshot is not something I considered Fun.also 1.5 - 2 chance of death so you will really need a medic or they might Bleed to death in the middle of fight if some one chops their arms off.always set Dismemberment chance to frequent.
>>250086115>always set Dismemberment chance to frequentunless you're pulling recruits from defeated foessifting through a pile of 40 black dragons who look like they went through a shredder to find at least one with all limbs was a major pain in the fucking ass
what should I do with my pack of freshly reprogrammed skellys?I was thinking about crossbow squad due to +20% perception but that wouldnt take adventage of their durability
>>250086115Crossbows alone are the reason I'll never touch the damage multiplier. They're broken enough as is.
>>250086471if they can lost them they don't need them.
>>250086471on the contrary, I use fresh recruits with missing limbs more often than ones with all limbs. fleshy meat sticks don't have 290 hp sadly
>>250085618>RP faction made up of runaway HN womenDo they have dyed hair? Do they catch and castrate random beta males? Do they have lots of cats (animals)?
>>250086804Set the multiplier to 2. Then install mods that add crossbowmen to the enemies. Relax. Enjoy death.
Is it okay to have multiple outposts? It doesn't fuck with raids or anything?
>>250085470>the local paladin chadsthe paladin chads would never need any help in finding willing females anyway since any heterosexual females soak their suspiciously modern panties in their presence in the first place. No, it's the weak manlets and /fa/t looking guys that benefit in the holy incels state.
>>250087787>suspiciously modernwhy is it suspicious
>>250087937I am mostly certain that the humans in Kenshi would (logically) wear something that medieval Asians wore, and the shek would not even start caring about not having underwear in the first place.
>>250088110Why are you mostly certain? I mean, we're debating underwear here but damn it I am passionate about this, why would medieval Asian underwear be logical in Kenshi when they have the ability to make cargopants and other modern pieces of clothing?
>>250084832>Implying it's a bad thing
>>250086007>Implying seta didn't do a disonorabru thing and fucked a wimpThere's fanart of that, therefore it's canon.
>>250088225I'm mostly certain he kinda didn't get the memo about playing a remnant of a spacefaring civ that made sentient robots and uplink cannons, and even retarded technoluddites like HN are actually using advanced machinery in their cities and mines
>>250088225>inb4 all cargopants are actually 1000 years old and we're playing Fallout even further into the future.
>>250086007>the main (and literal) shek mommy in Kenshi fucked a shotanice
>>250088463Mhm yes.Could I see it?
>>250088537>implying a civilization that forgot how to GUNPOWDER can remember how to make modern pantsuI will remain skeptical. You do you.
>>250088735>implying a moon colony on seaworld had gunpowder
>>250088698Such vile thing was never ever drawn - don't be silly>>250088765You think humanity will forget gunpowder once we start traveling around galaxy? Why? We still use matches, and they were around for how many centuries?
>>250088735>You can't have X technology without Y technology alsoTechnology is not gained in a strict progression. Making cargo pants has nothing to do with knowing how to make explosive powders.
>>250088976Well, I suppose if they can make modern pants - they still remember how to pantsu. It's not impossible. I guess.
>>250089032The mighty Isekai-kun didn't use the sliders to turn the smol shek into an absolute Fertility Goddesslameeeeeeee
>>250088885>Why?Resource unavailability, lack of use, lack of education or means to educate, corporate or state bans. Any person can build a gun or a nuclear reactor from common items but majority will never know how or have the time or resources to apply it, even with the right knowledge. And as history has proven again and again, if the knowledgeable does not act or even gets their knowledge used by the population the technology will go to the wind.The fact that the world of kenshi doesn't have guns, have no sign of guns being used or existed on the world just tells us that they did not bring, build or use any major weapons outside a robot workforce and melee. The orbital laser is most likely just a security feature placed by outside forces to keep the colony in check.
>>250089218so, they went Alterra route and banned guns but not knifes?
>>250088930>>250089032You think seto would have mommy issues from her fridge mother?You think she would let all that frustration out at you in psychotic episodes of rage and lust?
>>250088885gunpowder isn't exactly "easy" to discover from scratch.
>>250089303>psychotic episodes of rage and lust>by a Shekbroken pelvis dot jpg
>>250089264Well knives still have other uses than weapons, don't blindly believe what britbongs tell you. Guns are tools too, but a very straight foreward tool with only two purposes. The weapons kenshi has are obviously evolved from what little tools they had and what the intellectuals could afford to scrounge together. Pipes, crossbows, work knives perfected trough the ages.
>>250089471>don't blindly believe what britbongs tell youI don't have a loisence to know so much!!
>>250089160Seto is for cuteRuka is for amazon
>>250089846Now I want to see those two fucking each other. Why do you do this to me?
how can I add a building for sale into existing town?please someone walk me through it if you're bored
>>249949824I want to try
Do not settle in the Eye until late game
>Scour the UC for canyonlands killer>Find out he doesn't actually exist, alongside black scratch killer FEATURE COMPLETEFunny how the most complex crimes to solve are completely left out. Too hard for you chris?
>>250087653No but it was either the harem or jap pornstars poster
>>250089984>Too hard for you chris?don't bulli the man - he tried to make this game for 12 years!
Im thinking about using blunt
>>250089984Oh fuck,I've wasted hours on this.
Making progress.We're now ready to take on anyone (almost)
>>250090029how do you know?
>>250090431Nice delicious brown MA specialist there
>>250090434They were literally the only two posters doing so.
>>250077781Tried it out, still crashes, thanks for input tho
>>250090047Wish he didn't spaghetti code it so that factions or names can't change on the fly without it being the player. It would mean you could take over cities and have stealth npcs.
>>250090029>or jap pornstars posterHi fren. It wasn't me.
Ruka or Kang?
>>250090952Neither have any unique dialogue.Kang is straight up just stronger.
>>250090952Rane with maxed boob slider
>>250089303Considering her mother has massive concerns over shitty shek fertility and reproduction rates?She'd probably say "make sure he comes inside repeatedly"
>>250090952>qt3.14 waifu>Kangobvious choice, matey
>>250091078I want to save the Shek race by making that smol shekfu into a broodmother!
Fucks sake. Game keeps crashing when I try to check up on my base. I double click on a guy who is there to move back and it crashes. Even if I import.
>>250091369try to disable a couple of mods
>>250089303Definitely, she has sub par stats even for a standard shek warrior and she's the daughter to the golem. She's probably got the closest thing mentally to family values and pride. So she's not only hounding her over her weaknesses and lack of strong grandchildren. Her lack of a father figure that isn't the riceboy bayan doesn't help either.
only (You) can help the Shek Queendom with the power of your dick!
Is there some kind of cheat/FCS option/something to look under ground?It'd appear that a war leader of one of factions glitched under ground and all raids from that factions fail, because said war leader is unreachable.
how fast are goats?
does heavy weapons benefit from dexterity?
>>250091369I've had something similar, but it was when moving into a general area of one of cities. I deducted that one of (or more) files responsible for the map were corrupted. Frankly I have no idea why it stopped crashing, but if >>250091410 doesn't help, then you could install another instance of Kenshi (I pity those who bought the game and don't have a proper installer) and copy your saves and mods there and see if it'll work.
>>250091369if on steam, let it check for missing / corrupted files. Back up your editor data in case you changed them.
>>250093042Yeah it was an animation mod. Problem solved now.
>>250093042>I pity those who bought the game and don't have a proper installer>implying file verification isnt much better optionit's like you dont even use steam
>>250090952rukas whole thing is cut horns but the game immediately lets you customise her. why
Why does the item furnace let me melt down iron ore for no iron ore?
>>250089846>>250090952i want to be Ruka's little baby tampon boy. i want to turn into a little crying baby and then suck on her breasts. her magic breast milk would turn me into a little baby tampon boy. she would stick me in her hoo-hoo and i would wait with anticipation spouting little baby goo-goo ga-gas waiting for her to bleed all over me. i want to feel her Ruka blood inside my little goo-goo ga-ga baby tampon body. i want to absorb her hoo-hoo juies inside my little baby tampon boy body and goo-goo ga-ga like a little rolly-polly baby boy. it would be orgasmic to know i am one with her hoo-hoo Ruka blood and i would giggle and goo-goo ga-ga and yelp with little baby boy excitement as i roll around in her Ruka hoo-hoo and revel in her red juices, slurping them into my soft little baby tampon boy goo-goo ga-ga body. then i want her to pull me out and squeeze and wring my little baby tampon boy body so that her Ruka hoo-hoo blood and juices spill all over her Ruka face. it would hurt and i would scream in pained goo-goo ga-gas as pain envelops my little baby tampon boy body until i reach full climax and turn back into grown human man.
>>250093545This format is so stale at this point but I appreciate the effort
>>250093510Improper smelting of iron ore can turn it into slag. Useless waste.

Cannibals are retarded
>>250094710Try cannibals expandedAlso maybe they think you'd make a good cage?
>>250094707Why would you even need cats at that point? Everything you need you can make yourself.
>>249949219So swimming wouldn't be a useless stat?
>>250094923swimming is for having more muscle definition
>>250094707You can sell it for 50 but nobody can afford it
>>250094810>Everything you need you can make yourself.I suppose you glossed over every other thing that isn't fucking armor because you assumed that I have 99 stats in everything on 20 people, not just one guy grinding armorsmith
>>250094710>>250094807They' actually dislike skeletons. In its heyday, the Second Empire fought the cannibals a lot. The cannibals still have legends about it today, sometimes when a skeleton approaches they yelp about "the inedible one" returning.
>>250095130it raises a lot of questions. Namely in how the cannibals can maintain their numbers.Are they exclusively cannibals or do they eat any meat they can?They don't seem to do agriculture
>>250095354I guess they only eat outsiders? They raid for fresh meat outside their territory.
>>250095354The hidden forest hillside is apparently rich with greenfruit, goats are common and the deadcat have probably been a population boom for them.They also appear to have a system in place for how to efficiently cannibalize.Really its probably just a seasonal thing, soon the cannibals numbers will thin as the fishermen run out and the curious adventurers start learning or become better runners. Then their numbers will dwindle until the next starry eyed settler wanders into the north thinking their new empire is gonna be grand.
>>250095814Problem is the amount of time it takes to raise a human to adulthood.I mean you've got until about age 12 before they're ready to get their green paint on and join the scavs.So thats twelve years of food.I mean seasonal? These aren't mayflies.
>>250095965Remember they're not greenlanders, they're a new species of devolved humans.
>>249949930At around 60 in all those stats i can reliably taken on a full paladin/high paladin posse. Past like 30 or 40 in MA dust clowns are cannon fodder
>>250093457>whythe same reason why you can do something like This
>>250096494thanks for reminding why I stopped searching for huge tits on porn video sites
>>250096713you started looking for dicks instead?
>>250096930if that dust particle between your ears worked properly, maybe it could register something else on that imaginary slider with disgusting saggy grandma leather sacks on one end and dicks on anotherI stopped because three quarters of my search results were morbidly obese fugly middle aged goblinsI can't even process who the fuck likes to watch that shit
>>250094807>Try cannibals expandedNever ever download the expanded series
>>250097753Much like the base game they are deeply flawed but still fun. Worth a download, desu.
>smith is selling a fucking edge III weapon>not enough money>come back with enough money>it's goneevery fucking timeEVERYFUCKINGTIME
>>250097458oh my gosh anon, I really did struck a nerve there, didn't I?

>>250098057>slapping an ungodly amount of stats and out of place equipment on the cannibals>worth a downloadSo long as its followed by an unsub, sure.
>>250098129yeah, you didI abhor shittaste and especially when it involves something I like
>>250098240>why isn't my sp game heavily balancedYou should try out PoE, right up your ass, I mean alley
>>250096053Yeah but you still don't get around some of the basics of human growth.Even if we assumed that they reached adulthood age 12 and could join the scavs (who seem to be younger than the red painted cannibals) at age 8 or 10.Thats still years of feeding them.
>>250098316You do know you could have easily parried my stupid ass joke in the first place, right?Enjoy whatever the fuck you like, fren. Just keep it cool.
>>250097753Hivers expanded is decent
>>250098349Your mod is gimmicky garbage Circum, give it a rest.
>he doesn't carries extra pairs of limbs in case his prosthetics get too damaged mid battle
>>250098598Don't worry, I am sure the multiplayer meta will survive.
>>250095965>>250098414>I mean seasonal? These aren't mayflies.Long term seasonal. The war between the UC and HN left a lot of bodies, so did the escaped slaves and the HN coming after them, Deadcat became a solid source of meat and honestly outside of game mechanics a human body lasts way longer than a week. Add that with a side of scavenging for non-human based food and their almost efficient way of hacking people up just right to preserve the meat and you get enough "food" to allow meatlords and grand wizards to appear.Its obviously not perfect, that's why its "seasonal". The moment deadcat die out, the moment tech hunters and adventurers stop being interested in the north the cannibals will probably kill themselves off by eating eachother or dying further south in more stable lands. They'll become small, unnoticeable hobos only really eating people in special occasions like how island cannibals did. But then the next big hotshot will flee from whatever bullshit is going on in the south, a few wanderers will disappear in the woods and suddenly ms.cannibal can afford to keep a family of 3 instead of a half dead baby.
are camps spawning all the time or are they only generated on new game/import?
>>250098956You're misunderstanding the behavior of the in-game Cannibals with that of what's asserted about them. They were a threat to Cat-Lon's empire, continue to be a threat to Deadcat, Flotsam, HN and UC. Canhead has made his way into Vain and the faction map strongly dictates that their reach is enormous if not terrifying.The truth appears to be, the Cannibals are simply unrepresented respective to their tenacity and willingness to expand. See: Flotsam Village, Okran's Fist, Drin and Sho-Battai.The notion the Cannibals will die off without being hunted down after the existence of any power vacuums is silly. Robun, Simion and Moll are holding back an ocean.
>>250099225An ocean isn't worth ass if it doesn't get fed and see's itself as food.
>>250099556I just explained it to you. If the Cannibals aren't held back by certain guardians in the form of Flotsam, Empire Peasants, Deadcat, UC, Holy Nation and Cannibal hunters there is nothing BUT food. The Cannibals have plenty of avenues for expansion, they have always been looking for it and are always prodding at the borders. I'm sorry to say it, you don't understand the concept of opportunism. Of course they eat each other, but the game explicitly outlines there are plenty of targets on the map ready for the eating thereof. The Sho-Battai override is a massive reach, directly placed in the base game by the devs. They're expansionist, it's canon.
Holy shit you need to be an actual Hulk to swing the fragment axe properly omg
>>250093849imagine kenshi universe in the hnh system. it would truly be torture
>>250100521the increasing mass of heavy weapon tiers is a complete fucking memethere never was and never will be a person who could actually swing a 170lb metal bateven if you somehow had strength to do it, it would just lift you off the fucking ground and fly away with you like Thor's hammer
this fucking fogmen just ran all the way here to pick up beep while he was asleep what the fuck
>>250101268it happens sometimessome cannibal fag picked up my squadmember when he was resting in bugmen colony
>>250101268They're trying to kill him before he ascends.
>>250101268Try toggling stealth while sleeping
>>250100910>long bolt weighs 2kg>masterwork Eagle's Cross fires them at 183m/s>IRL it would have momentum of 366kgm/s
killing fogmen is too much fun
should I turn savant in or recruit him?I alredy have squad of 10 skellys
>>250102472it's 2kg per 10 shoots
>>250103162shit, really?I never went into crossbows because the ammo management looked like a total pain in the assok, so it's 200g per bolt, that's still 37kgm/sthat's 6 times more powerful than AK bullet
So I'm pretty convinced theres a beakthing lair near my base.Mainly because theres constant fights between beak things, cannibals and shrieking bandits in the area around my base and beak things constantly battering at the doors before being put down by the turrets.I am divided as to how to resolve this situation or if it even needs resolution
is it possible to stuff filled closed bags with more filled closed bags inside your own bag?
>>250104193And what does the game say?
>>250104193you can put only empty bags inside other bags
>>249949824let's see if lady luck shits out something interesting

>>250102905I use him to train my squad, he is REALLY fucking good if you want to lose some limbs
I rescued two people from cannibal camp and now they're following mewhat do?
>>250105659Walk a certain distance and talk to them again
so when you're rescuing prisoners can you carry them out and they join you or can you carry them?
>>250098729Skellies should have the default ability to swap limbs. And yes, this trick is wonderful especially when facing HN.
>>250091369Try turning off the crafting animations mod if you have it, it's been known to do that for some people.
>while you were out kicking hungry bandits in the ass i studied the sword
>>250105605>if you want to lose some limbs you alredy have peelers if you capture himwhats the point
>>250106758Yeah thats what it was.
>>250107116Not that anon, but he makes a decent punching bag.
>Tower of goats
>>250107116Well, if you don't want to lose all limbs at once, you know?
>>250109374Get beaten up and then use the peeler
Anyone has any idea what's causing this?
>>250110378gonna guess it's mods
>>250110378world of Kenshi needs lipsticks
>>250110981I'm trying to get the skimpy MA bindings to work.Base mod and vanilla body textures makes so it's just the normal white bindings with the skimpy ones overlapping.With the workshop nude mod this happens.Also happens without clothing. I guess it's just poorly designed textures.Anyway the point is, i saw another anon use the skimpy MA bindings and he didn't appear to have any problem with them. So what's the problem?
>>250110378after I installed that female 18+ mod this happened, so I uninstalled it and now it all back to normal
these fucking guys...
i have come to the conclusion that the 5x exp mod ruins the gamemy single skeleton martial artist is unstoppable now, on day 28
>>250111897they are so chill, just fucking trade with them
>>250111897why wouldn't you trade with them?
what are some balanced armour mods?
>>250111897>we MUST trade now humanthe guy is so passionate
>/keng/ fag: I've built a faction made of pro-UC martial artist hivers and now we're moving to take down the Holy Nation>/v/ fag: b-but how can I play this game???
>>250112142>>250112225>>250112489I blew 30K on that jew and he still doesn't let me leave. He still smell money in my pouch.
>>250112550kenshi is basically roleplaying engineif you're not into this kind of thing you wont like it
>>250111938key attack slots up to x5 and go fight something that isn't hobos.
>>250112947I think its the skyrim-type people who are need to told what to do. These people are unable to enjoy this game for a simple reason: In their minds there is a playable hero character who must defeat the big evil. This is where their mind and imagination ends, and the game can give them any tool possible they'll still be too stupid to pick that up and use it.
Post your elite execution forceAnd your squad too
Guys, I think he's terminally retarded.
Is there a way to make the bread basket NOT accessible as a fucking food store?
So I need 86 strength to swing a 43kg fragment axe?
>>250114224Where did you get these headless skellies? Were they weak thralls?
>>250114284Deconstruct 'em all, build a food store, then a bread basket.Jobs always use the first object built when doing an automated job so that should make hungry people use the food store but bakers still use the bread basket.
>>250114224how the fuck did you get thralls?
>>250114407To swing it effectively, yes.But you need much more surplus Strength, because the moment you get hit in an arm or chest your Strength will decrease and you'll be back under the optimal level.
Day 107: I still can't think of a name for my faction
>>250114665shit, then I'll just throw my char into a peeler and give it some industrial arms.thanks anon
>>250114524>>250114410you need to imprison them to recruit themwith a modthey are Armor King's thralls, i got really lucky, managed to down one after they aggroed on me because i stole something. They ganged up one of my hivers, in the mean time i ganged up on one, managed to barely get him down, quickly picked up the almost dead hiver, another dude who got beaten and the thrall and legged it.i came back with the first thrall on my side and it was much easier to get the other three
>>250114985Also forgot pic
>>250114983Or just don't use the meme weapon and consider a Plank or Falling Sun. They weight about half as much and deal about the same damage, just with different cut-to-blunt ratio.
assasination is the real problem with stealth, if it was nerfed or straight up removed it wouldn't be op
>>250113919>I think its the skyrim-type people who are need to told what to dopeople who still play skyrim give absolutely no fucks about the game's pisspoor quests
>>250114437I just did this and they all still flock to the bread basket, greedy fucking bastards
>>250115225I'm gearing myself to fight the endgame skellies, I already have two dudes with crosses but idk about heavy weapons
>>250114983don't do that, feed the fogmen with their limbs, they always eat them firstit boosts thougness, i think peleers don't
>>250115397I was talking about the types who were playing it back then and thought its the top dog of every single fantasy game ever made. It has everything handholding a lore nobody gives a fuck about and a quest marker to follow. They steamroll trough the game and that's it.Modding is a different topic, because those people don't really give a fuck about it and use the game as a platform.
>>250115986>a lore nobody gives a fuck aboutwhich is sad, because it's actually pretty damn expansive and tricked out
>>250115549Again, Fragmented Axe is a meme, you need 90+ Strength and two Masterwork Industrial Arms to even consider higher tiers. If you want Heavies get other types or use Hackers for bonus damage against Skellingtons.
>>250116215>Fragmented Axe is a memeThis, falling sun is the best heavy weapon
>>250116215with that attitude you'll never get shekfus fucking weak ass fag >he can't swing a 50kg piece of steelfucking weaklings holy shit
lmaoI tought it was a shoped when I've seen it here

WHY people live here?
>>250118676And what do they eat? You don't see farmlands like the Holy nation territories. This doesn't make sense Chris.
>>250118772They get food from the Swamp
>>250118772Trade caravans and slave farms are a thing. Hence why the empire literally starts starving when you take them both out.
>>250119132>>250118901>>250118772cactus farming and cactus food would make sense.
>>250118231The real holy men fuck the darkness out of the female sheks, you pansy!
>>250120121they farm cactus and wheat to do dustwitches in brink i think
FIGHT ME EYEGORE! FIGHT MEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

>>250120163I never seen a crossbreed. Also you might as well go and live with them in the unfertile desert heretic.
>>249949824eh I'll give this a good 30 minutes, see how I do. I'll be back with a screenshot of my corpse.
has anyone tried Okran's Rest? It's a freshly modded HN city right where reasonable people would build a town in the first place - in the only properly green part of Kenshi. Feels like Root.
>>250121095Never said a word about breeding the shek. Also - they do have relative fertile lands. They just don't know how to farm. And someone who is willing to teach them might end up very rich. Think about it.
>>250118328assassination should be changed to sneak attack. targetted strike that does bonus damage. I guess you can give each body part a certain % of successfully being hit. Give unarmed + ninja blade a damage multiplier on sneak attacks. This way ninjas can still outright kill weaker guys or at least cripple stronger ones and gain an advantage
>>250122043>shek>any form of brain usagekek

Sheks are only moderately useful for building huge statues

>>250124336>Are they any harder than the fogmen? Cannibals are unnoticeably stronger, but it mostly boils down to using actual weapons.>>250124418You're not power levelling. Getting 80 Strength is a matter of a week or two. 80 Dexterity and 90 MA is a matter of days with a dedicated limbless Skeleton punching bag.
>>250121227>scorchlander>hackers>no looting>shek kingdom>bodyguard>lone shack30 minutes-ish later and im just running around shek areas mining copper for food. I can make a shack pretty soon but idk how to be a "bodyguard". also haven't found a hacker that wasn't on a dead body, so, idk this feels kinda dumb and pointless.
>>250124394The entire 'farm land' is empty though, not counting a few 'holy farms' that don't even look like proper farms that can feed an entire state. Why not?
