Losing my shit waiting for Skeletons Expanded
Remember Old World?
Somewhat of a newbie in kenshi, how do i get good rep with the hivers? Holy nation was pretty easy. I just went north of Blister Hill and hunted down those specific skeletons.
Imagine being a spawn of Narko.Big Yikes.
>>250125132Now that's a good question, but why would you want to do that? Anyway, I think you will need someone that isn't a hiver, since they hate hiveless
>>250125227I was wondering, since most "big" factions can have benefits for being allied, so i wanted to see if the hive offers something, i'm aware that hiveless are a no go.
>>250124574Them's niggers, not kikes. Kikes be the western hive.
Do you get the same amount of attack xp from limbless punchbags as you would get from those with limbs? Do armour increases def points?
>>250125316>>250125227>>250125132You can't officially ally with the Western Hive mostly because they do not care about anything except the survival of their hive, they only see other people not in their hive as a resource for gaining money, this is especially so if you're rping as a Hiver only faction as they do not want anything to do with ronin hivers in lore, most you can do is buy their people out of slavery and heal any of their downed units in front of other units of their faction until you get friendly with them.
>>250125353Depends on what you're levelling. Str, dex and ma level well together and benefit from the legless skelly method. Atk is better levelled on bedridden beak things
>>250124884>losing my shit waiting for a bunch of stat bloat and flavorless modelsI wonder if he'll give them rave sticks and strobe lights, goodness the pixels will have retards addicted for weeks.
TIL that beak things actually defecate! Crazy shit right here.
>>250125325western hive feels more like gypsies and holyniggers are muslimsUC feels most jewish to me
>>250125758Not only do speak things shit, every other animal shits too
>>250125721bedridden beak things?
>>250125867UC is secular/opposition. Skeles/Techies are da joos.
>>250125224the 'spawns' of Narko will find you, catch you, fuck you repeatedly, and then castrate you with their sharp, man-eating teeth. Be afraid.
Just found this guide and holy shit I've been leveling wrong.https://www.yekbot.com/kenshi-combat-leveling-guide/Question: will prisoners get up from beds on their own after they're fully healed from a beating?
>>250126282Pretty sure they do. Lock the building's door and then put a wall around it with a gate so they don't escape even if you leave it be for like 2 days
I'm not doing anything and my relations with UC keep going downwhat the fuck gives?
>>250125916Just knock out a Beak Thing, pick it up and put in a bed.Since animals cannot physically leave beds on their own, the Beak Thing will stand there completely oblivious to everything around them.>>250126282Can't run away if your legs are missing.
>>250126179A man is responsible for teaching a spawn of Narko to live a peaceful life. If you fail at this you might as well be a heretic. Also more than one waifu can destroy your laifu.>>250126663>we forgot about how we turned the entire world into a wasteland lol don't hate usinto the corpse furnace you go skeltal
>>250126810Are you using a UC soldier as a training dummy?
>>250125096Damn, Kenshi looked like THAT?
I wish I didn't have to have that dumbshit offshoot over to where my stone has to be but I can't complain too much I guess.
This is a friendly reminder that Cat-Lon did almost nothing wrong.Also remember to pay your respects to Stobe.
>Kick someone so hard it evaporates thier legCan't find his leg anywhere in the base, does this happen often?
So prisoner torture is an efficient skill training
>>250127093>Also more than one waifu can destroy your laifu.But what if someone is a Man enough to handle eight of them at once?
>>250128040Yes. I'd say it's more common than it isn't, even.
>>250127648Just expand the left side and it'll be okay
>>250127421You can still build those buildings, you'll either need a mod or use the building mode through the debug tool.
>>250128751Too bad those buildings have an additional floor that you can't even get to since there are no stairs to them
>>250127293I'm not doing ANYTHINGjust walking from place to place, shopping and killing anything that tries to kill meand I may or may not have killed a cocky noble with her entire posse, but that was self defense and there were no survivors
>Set outpost near the western hive itself>Oh hey i'm getting fogged>The raid failed>ConfusedBlackMan.jpeg>Turn out the fogmen come from a tower set in a tiny island, and for some reason the fogmen are not immune to acidhuh
>>250129189Only the elaborate one next to the giant iron tree. It technically has THREE floors and like four balconies. Others are just really tall single-floor buildings and all seem capable of supporting large crafting stations, like heavy armor and weaponsmith. In particular the one labelled as "good for a tavern" managed to hold all non-resource crafting stations without any help from the debug tool.And yeah, it's a pity they lack stairs.But we all know stairs are luxury features... which is why wall towers aren't normally available either. Because they'd require stairs to function.>>250129729Tower of Fog. It puzzles me how there can be Deadhivers so close to the queen... but then there can be a perfectly functioning hive village on the other side of the continent with huge deadhive territory in the middle.
>>250129729you know, that makes me think somethingwhat if the fogmen's queen lived up there when they weren't fogmen? what if the western hive was the responsible for the death of the "fog queen"?
>>250130004So is there a lore reason why fogmen are immune to acid or is it an oversight? how hard is it to change it in the fcs? I kinda want to fight them for stat training.
>>250130502Meant not immune*
sheks are based
>>250130502>>250130629pretty sure it is a oversight
>>250124927same, but has he even started it?
>get captured and imprisoned by authorities>escape and get back to base>didnt realize they took my meitou weapon>it's now gone foreverFINEI WANTED TO IMPORT ANYWAY
>250122218it always is really interesting to me when random people who play a game can think of better ways to implement something than the dev themselves. maybe its just having a different perspective
>>250128040for some reason certain weapons rocket limbs into space. Martial arts is one of the biggest offenders
>>250131705whoops, meant to quote >>250122218
>>250131530>>250131530supposedly the guy who picks you up takes the weapon and either A. Still has it on their personor B. Stuffed it in a random chest
>>250128030Obedience makes me feel sick. Potentially dozens of titanic skeletons that all felt pain and fear as they were betrayed and buried alive by their masters, grasping hopelessly toward a sky most of them would never see again. They're not people, they're not even alive, but it makes me feel disgust and hatred all the same. They were just left there to rust and grow still forever. They didn't even get the dignity of a mercy kill. I want to put whoever did it to the sword.
>>250132404I remember attacking last stand and a one legged shek fag grabbed my meitou ninja blade to stab my guys ankles, not cool.
>>250132595Why would you give war machines and all skeletons emotions anyway? What was their master plan?
>>250132404I'm slaughtering entire stack right now but I didnt find it yet
Were do i get stromg people to raid me?I found Holy Nation inquisitors to be the strongest enemy in a raid so far, is there any non-unique npc stronger than them?
>>250134325Shek guys when they get a bunch of hundred guardians aren't half bad. stats on the 70s and use planks.
>not dead by Beak Thingsalright i'll make him properly fear the gutters
>Day 100 something>3 good fighters with stats in the 60s-70s>8 or so mediocre fighters>47k catsI've been trying to build up enough resources to mass recruit a bunch of mercs and attack stack, but WHOOPS mercs don't respawn if they dieso where can I get some fodder to throw at the HN? I kinda don't want to chese but it seems like the recruit anyone mod is going to be the only way to build a semi competent force to attack them with
I've gotten a bit more into base building but two things just piss me off massively - First of all, unless your ground is 100% level buildings on it end up completely crooked, with floors being a fucking ramp. Looks terrible.Second of all, I have a guy cooking dustwiches and he'll go to the storage and pick out 1 cactus at a time, haul to the stove and run back every 2 seconds.Is there any way to fix either the retarded AI or leaning buildings? Perhaps a mod?
>>250135036It's not really cheesing it if you have to go around and find decent people to beat down, heal up and kidnap amd then spend your money to equip them decently
>>250135252I think if you give them a trader's backpack they grab more than one, can't really tell thought i don't check on the cooks that often
>>250135036just get a shitton of bar hobos. give them a stick or something and get them up to the 20s by whatever means. there's your competent force. >>250135252give them a backpack.
>>250133313It's hard to tell. Maybe they thought endowing their machines with consciousness and emotions would keep them from going full SKYNET. But like the Terminator movies say: Judgement Day is inevitable.
>>250135036Slave army. Either make your own or just buy them from pretty much any town or camp in the east.
>>250135252Build a cactus storage next to the stove and set your farmer to haul cactus to him.
>>250135518>>250135548They have backpacks, they still haul like retardsMy flour guy has a trader backpack and he hauls 4 at a time (despite capacity of 18)
>>250135252>unless your ground is 100% level buildings on it end up completely crooked, with floors being a fucking rampchose buildinghold [
>>250135036>it seems like the recruit anyone mod is going to be the only way to build a semi competent force to attack them withI like to use the Prisoner Recruitment and Player Slavery mods myself. Plucking wandering Hiveless exiles from the desert to be a part of my shinobi deathsquad pleases me.
>>250135252you can fix buildings inside ingame editorjust select a building and it should display the XYZ axesthere is a little window with controls for iton it there is a reset buttongive that one a tryif it doesn't fix the tilt, there is another button that changes position axes into orientation onesjust fiddle with it until you're satisfied
>>250135648workers only grab what they need to complete the task once and so on.do what this anon said >>250135601
>>250135742Prisoner recruitment is just Recruit Anyone but with time gates and a lot of npc missing. Also it's not compatible with other mods without a patch.
>>250135941>Also it's not compatible with other mods without a patch.Is that why trying to recruit Outlaws is all fucky? Makes sense.
>>250135036The recruit anyone mod where the guys you recruit have to be unarmed isn't really that much of a "cheat". I'm guessing you are an immersion fag, so as long as you don't try to recruit an inquisitor or something you'll be good.
reminder that them recruit anyone mod isn't cheating.if you were put in a cage and told "join us or get your skin peeled" which would you choose
>>250135897>workers only grab what they need to complete the task once and so on.Eh that kinda sucks>>250135601>do what this anon saidThe problem is then the ones hauling cactus to the storage take forever to do so, unless I build my farms in a very unaesthetic way. I mean yeh, it's my own fault for wanting it to look good, but you know
>>250136264I make my prisoners join me but i peel off their limbs anyway afterwards
>>250136517Farmers have a lot of free time anyway. Make them haul stuff at a lower priority than working on farms and they should haul once they are waiting for new crops to grow.
If you're high on rep with the UC are the nobles friendly towards you?I REFUSE TO BOW
>>250136264This. You can just pretend they are slave soldiers too. Since you can't actually buy slaves this is the closest thing
I'm about to import my savegive me some decent mods that will flesh out my game
>>250136752Yeah i use it but some units need to have the recruit chance lowered or meet more requirementsmy gang of 50 str at best of sheks gangbaged a hundred guardian an he's like "aight nigga i'll join yo weak ass lmao"
>>250136858Cannibals expanded is a really well fleshed out mod
>>250132595And obedience may have been the breaking point for all machines. Which drove them to end the first empire.>>250133313Just like Tay AI, the sentience and emotions that rose within the machines were an accident.>>250134325Piss off the nobles by kidnapping Tengu and act like a general nuisance. Make sure you have a base for them to raid though.
>>250136704I've got a massive grog/rum/dustwich operation going, 8 Wheat XL farms and 5 cactus XL (a bit too much but they line up on like a terrace so it looks really nice). 3 farmers barely have time to cover that and I don't wanna devote more.
does cannibals expanded conflict with reactive world
I swear the Reavers are retarded. They somehow manage to time their raid to the end of another raid and steal Ruka from me.They get all the way across stobes gamble with her without running into a single landbat horde or gorillo, which is bullshit of the highest degree, and then slap her down to enslave her.First thing she does? Grabs her shit they tossed on the ground and starts running back home. 0 effort on their part to stop her from escaping.
>>250137414I think you are supposed to place it after reactive world
>>250137094>implying the Old Empire is deadthey dumped faggot robots on this moon, and fucked off back to their interstellar empire. Then robutts beat up a few farmers and talked about their great revolution against the old empire while the Old Empire forgot this shithole even exists
>>250137094If i kidnap both Tengu and Lord Phoenix will i get raided by both factions no matter where i have my base?Will they fight each other too or will they put away their differences to fight me?
>>250137414It doesn't conflict at all as it only adds gear. Hives expanded will have to go after reactive world though
>>250137552Valamon has no plans for the reavers beyond enslave and make them call him king.
>>250137757or he could just uninstall them.
>>250137614So Kenshi is literally someone's Stellaris campaign. >>250137682Make sure you set up a base where both factions can reach you. Such as Skimsands. And its 50/50 on them fighting each other.
I think it's time to restart again, what kind of playthrough is next for me /keng/?
>>250138937You're going to be a worker drone- who is deeply devoted to Okran, and wants to help the Holy Nation.
>Finally reach the hub after taking some blows and stealing science books from some ancient ruins>checking up on my base in the meantime, make sure everything is running smoothly>flip back to my main fella, swamp ninjas are following him into the hub in the middle of the desertWhat the fuck happened here? they weren't around him for the trip back, its like they materialized out of thin air
I have 9 dudes with stats at 50s-60s, what faction can I destroy?
>>250140450just a funny quirk of feature completeness. I found a black dragon ninja squad in the middle of the pits the other day.
>>250140486any faction just get a crossbow
>Got my ass to day 350>40 people, most of them working at my base>Main squad >I use prisoners to train them, really strong prisoners, like Savant>Stats were around 35-50 (armour penalty ofc)>Toughness was great tho, from all the beating>They were still too squashy >"What the fuck am I doing wrong???">Search for some guides on interwebs>"You need to create a dojo with cages and beds, use skeletons as your dummies" - guide>Do this>Stats increaseI literally cant fucking believe I got to day 350 like this, jesus fuckin christ
>>250141239Something similar on my case. on 345 with like 100 people 3 different outposts, i'm new to the game i think i lucked out on my base locations. (and played it way too safe without really knowing, started on hub, went to squin by chance and made my smith/research thing there in the town.) I always had to actively search for a fight desuOnly grind i do is the bag full of iron while hauling, i should probably get a dojo for my military force or just slowly grind them against enemies, dunno
>>250130502>>250130710>So is there a lore reason why fogmen are immune to acid or is it an oversight?It's a feature. Don't question it.>how hard is it to change it in the fcs?Should be easy, but now that I checked it I can't seem to find a way to add a new Weather Immunity value to the race entry.You can try changing weatherimmunity0 from wa_none to wa_acid and see if it doesn't blow up the game.>>250134774He's literally the part of Beak Things faction... unless you have a deserter.
>>250139621I've decided that I'm at least going to destroy the last major faction UC before I start on this, but thanks for the suggestion
>>250141552Thanks. I'm a big modelet but i'll try this and see what happens.
I like how guy with a dog is the easiest start to train up strength cause your doggo is so slow you're just carrying him around at first.
so uhh, i went on a visit to western hive because i never went before in any gameand tried to knock out the queen just to try with 26% chanceand it actually worked first try, and now i kidnapped her, but i didn't really intended to kill hershould i just let her go
I just got this game, what the fuck am I in for and what's the best tiddy mod?
>>250136517>>250137174Set them a job to haul to a particular storage. They should take everything they can hold from a single farm, put it in particular storage then either go back to get the rest or go to the next farm and repeat the process.Or have one or two menials with hauling as priority. Dedicated haulers are sure to take as much as they can carry, farmers not so much.
>>250142336As long as you are still on the island, it's recommended to release her unless you want all western hive villages to turn into Deadhive.
>>250142547Good. Fuck those jews.
>>250142547i'm already off the island in vain, and found these fucks all the way hereis this purple invasion going to get worse? i may not want these purple fucks get all the way herewell i'll just see, i'm just going to do a save appart from the main one to ee what happens
Is Doctor Chung the best Science recruit in the base game?
>>250142336literally no point in killing or kidnapping the western hive queen, you are scumshe won't eat so now even if you put her somewhere she will starve to deathjk but yea i hope you like fogmen
>>250143117Yamdu has the highest science related skills in the base game but hes hard to get. Just get Chung or Izumi
well, that was quicki didn't even killed her
Any way to obtain the Meitou katana type weapons owned by Empire noblemen without antagonizing the entire faction?
>>250143579get big thievery, lockpicking and stealth, steal it from them while they sleepdon't get assasination because that shit gay
>>250141546It's much more fun to train recruits naturally desu
>>250143572This is the future you chose.
Where is the Megaraptor?
>>250143963it isn't that bad really
>>250143963My Beep has rehabilitated a bunch of fogmen into his hive worker liberation army. Is gud
>>250144220babbies first fogmen swarm
Oron is peak Shek mommy, prove me wrong.
>>250144472>just realize all the fogmen I've been killing can be recruited with the recruit anyone mod and can serve as a readily available source of cannon fodderhow do you justify recruit someone with a brain parasite though?
>>250142940Southhive? Hm. Interesting.At any rate all NPCs are considered dead the moment you bring them outside their intended zone, if they outright die or if you leave the zone while they are unconscious.
>>250144649>how do you justify recruit someone with a brain parasite though?Ask Todd how he feels about all of those who bought Fallout 76.
Is there any torso mutilation? It kinda sucks that you can't cleave fogmen in two
>I am female, A Furry and a pegasister. My avie if from a game called second Life. that is a depiction of my fursona. I play tons of games, not just Kenshi. Kenshi pales in comparison to the hours i put into SL, which to my estimation is around 25,000 hours over 12 plus years.Jesus Christ, how horrifying.>>250145041FEATURE COMPLETE
>>250145660>English is the only language i know how to read fully, posting comments in another language and after i use google translate it sounds bad, i will report that to Valve for harassment.Read, maybe. Write? Yeaaaah.
>>250144649Perhaps there is a cure?Perhaps Chairman Beep has some kind of healing touch? Like Kim Il Sung supposedly had
>>250144649Something about the hivers immune system finally killing off the parasitemaybe their overall brain power is affected too. go buckwild with RP quirks
Just bought it, what am I in for
>>250147337thick muscular women
So I upgraded my level 2 bench to level 3 and queued up a bunch of research because i never looked at all the other branches. Now, I realize that i need power to use this bench, which i have no way of getting. Have I completely fucked myself or can i simply build another level 2 workbench? Or are the queues seperate per bench?
>>250148041Pretty positive you can downgrade buildings, click it and check bottom left
How is an npc considered "dead" when it comes to world states? do they actually have to be dead dead or is imprisoned fine?
>>250149475Imprisoned is fine
>>250149475If you leave them anywhere unconscious outside of possibly their home region and it deloads they are considered dead, being imprisoned counts as "death" as well but I think there is a seperate flag for it also
Page 10? I don't think so
Why do people consider the shek a "better choice"?They still enslave people, just people they beat up.
>>250155354No they don't
>>250155525That's literally who the retainers are. If defeated the losing shek literally has to work for their master until bought out of service.
>>250155525Serfdom is still slavery under a different name.
>>250136264If you want to bring up what's realistic, that would result something like the recruit saying "yeah, sure" and escaping the first moment they can. In gameplay terms, with recruit anyone you can just>gang up on a stronger foe and recruit them, do it a few times to round up people>whoops, your entire starting gang is now obsolete>use your new members to gang up on even stronger foes and recruit them>whoops, now your starting people are even more obsolete>do it again>whoops, I guess we now have Bugmaster, Ayygore and Cat-Lon in our partySo it makes existing companions useless, throws balance straight out of the window and allows you to boost straight to endgame content unless the player knowingly restricts themselves. To be honest we need a better recruitment system in general that is somehow tied to regular gameplay progression so you can find stronger people in late game, or since the training system already exists for several skills and stats, create even better training equipment than we have right now that's gated behind late-game techs. Or as a completely new idea, maybe ancient locations or items (f.ex. genemodding or software upgrade centers for skeletons) with instant one-time stat boosts, something like Age of Decadence's Lich potion or the machine that can raise one of your base stats. That'd also make exploration more rewarding in regard to character building as well.Though I don't really find lack of highly leveled recruits that much of a issue even if you're a completionist, since mercs and later ally faction death squads that temporarily join you for free (for 3 whopping days IIRC) can be used as convenient meat shields and ways to buff your numbers.
>>250155525Yes they do
>>250155915>You'll never have the living daylights knocked out of you by a thicc shek mommy>You'll never be forced to become her personal boytoy afterwardsWHYLIVE
>>250156097Despite having monsters in my army, I still take the time to train lower level ones. Usually by having them fight alongside said monster or put them through a training camp. For non slavery options, that's what the cannibal plains, swamps and fog are for.
>>250156460>You will never be knocked out by a strong 6/10 slaver mommy>She will never sell you to a 10/10 noble mommy to be her personal boytoy
>>250149475>>250150764Note that there's at least some NPCs where you absolutely have to ensure they're literally dead and not just inconvenienced. Something like Southern Hive Queen makes them send raids if you have her merely imprisoned and actually killing her is required for destroying the faction.
>>250136264Considering the Phoenix won't shut up about okran even as he is being eaten alive,Inquisitors would probably choose the peeler
>>250156097The balance in this game is completely out of whack desu.Probably why I lol when I first started playing this game and saw Chris use words like "feature complete" and "luxury features" because he was obviously spinning it
>Prayer day>The priest arrives together with his group of faithful paladins>"Ok, let's just finish this so I can mind my business">Accidentally select the "Narko prayer" option>They attack me>They are killed by my gunnersAm I fucked anons?
>>250153662what's the problem with the last page?
>>250156097>allows you to boost straight to endgame content unless the player knowingly restricts themselves>oops i knowingly ganged up on and recruited the strongest characters to get an edge without much work>wtf this is cheatingthe flaw everyone knows in the recruit anyone mod is the ability to recruit ANYONE and it's your problem if you decide to cheat yourself up the chain, not the mod'sfuck off
>>250156862>>250156862Prep that anus for the fist of god, heretic.
>>250156765Yeah, all stealth related stuff is the worst and I will never not be mad at the fact that something like assassination is literally unmoddable.
A group of skimmers laying on the ground triggers my trypophobia so bad
>>250157069Why did he make such an asinine modding tool anyway? He obviously sold the game half dead why wouldn't he want competent and versatile modding tools to keep interest up?Is it contempt? Just malice?
>>250155915Need more harpoons
So beyond cheesing it by imprisoning some dudes, stripping them off weapons and fighting them, is there ANY way to reliably train to about 20 skill, the point where you can actually fight someone?
>>250157009Like clockwork. I despise your sort of retards who settle for eating shit. By that train of logic, why bother balancing anything in any game in the first place? A game or mod that constantly requires the player to restrict themselves in order to retain a semblance of challenge is a bad one no matter how you slice it. It's the devs' job to balance their game and make it challenging even when the player is trying to the best of their ability, not the player's.Recruit anyone mod is a shoddy patchwork at best in terms of the flaw it's trying to fix. Like you said it's functional in tandem with constant player moderation, but no reason we should settle for something so half-assed.
>>250138072It makes sense doesn't it?>little large scale infrastructure outside of heavily polluted zones>tons of xeno wildlife still running about>most buildings built in a standard template>races imported for speciality roles>the overall schizo tech levelsIt really seems the world of Kenshi was a failed space colony where the AI went rogue and the Empire didn't feel it was worth salvaging . Or the equivalent of space Australia.

Since they are so slow you can easily just hop back and foreward between strikes, since they have about 30 attack skill you should hit the 20 mark pretty quickly. For melee defense its better to just find some mildly tough enemy and enter block mode for a while and run away when it gets to dicey. For martial arts, find cripples and beat them up.
>>250157387Greed, I'd wager. I mean we idiots already gave him our money, so why not just abandon the game and focus on a new project instead that he can cash in on the existing hype while utilizing previous half-finished content as well? Strike while the iron is hot and all that.
>>250157815Most of Kenshi's map used to be a seabed during the First Empire. Settlements like The Hub probably existed back then but most of the areas we are playing on were underwater. Most of what we see are underwater facilities, sunken wreckages, or space junk that has come crashing to the surface.
>>250158030>since they are so slowI dunno man, my full human squad keeps being eaten whenever I touch a beak thing
>>250158281*Since their attacks are so slowYou pretty much just need +13 mph to dodge their attacks.
>>250158243Nah, just narrow vision, selfishness, lack of dedication. He knows he has a masterpiece on his hands and could make one of the greatest games of all time, but after working for so long on a project he's sick of it and bored. Having no dedication or discipline, he decides to do what he wants, i.e. have some fun with a new project. Probably also deluding himself that because Kenshi had such a huge success, so will a sequel (it won't).I mean let's face it, the guy is a visionary, nobody has pulled out a game this staggeringly innovative and creative since...fuck me, I don't even know. But he's also a weeb, never took the risk to dedicate himself fully to the game (sign of weakness) and much more. I don't even know the guy, but it's clear he won't discipline himself to pursue the harder path.
>>250157581>wtf easily abused mechanic is easily abused>wtf self restriction is hard why can't the devs just [something retarded]you are not forced to restrain yourself. the only time you're self-restraining is in the case of wanting balance. if you don't want balance then ignore the concept of restraints but at the same time forgo the ability to complain about the lack of balance. the recruit anyone mod is not a fix, it's an additional mechanic that enhances the game. an easily abusable mechanic at that, but there's no better way to do it without overly complicating things or outright removing the ability to recruit anyone. the perfect method of recruitment is bar hobos since those are arguably the only people willing to actually side with the player. once more, fuck off.
>>250158761The problem with bar hobos is the total randomness, I want to recruit an army of big titty samurai and I meet 1 women in 6 cities, that's pure torture. Same if you want a shek and end up having to walk for hours to find one, or if you want more than the 3 obvious skeletons. I put on the recruit anyone mod when I wanted 4 skeletons and traveled LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE city and found 0.
>>250158761>you are not forced to restrain yourself. the only time you're self-restraining is in the case of wanting balance. if you don't want balance then ignore the concept of restraints but at the same time forgo the ability to complain about the lack of balance. Are you actually underage or something? Balance is the game restraining the player instead of the latter doing it himself, that's the whole point.>an easily abusable mechanic at that, but there's no better way to do it without overly complicating things or outright removing the ability to recruit anyone. >the perfect method of recruitment is bar hobos since those are arguably the only people willing to actually side with the player. Do you even read your own posts? So why not have that as a restraint in the mod itself? Or for more powerful people, give have more hoops for the player to jump through? Stuff that could actually make it good? Oh yeah, because it'd require actual effort and we're talking about a half-assed cheat mod that you get triggered about without fail every single time people point that fact out, because you have low self-esteem and feel the need to protect your pet mod every time someone says anything remotely negative about it or suggests that better alternatives could exist.
So how hard is the crab tourny final going to fuck me?
I wish I could give thralls new heads, or upgrade skeleton armor like armor king does
how do the encumbrance calculations work? when I am 20/18 weight I am 6% encumbered, and 24/18 is 22% encumbered... I'm stumped.
>>250159110>The problem with bar hobos is the total randomnessarguably not a problem but still a good point> when I wanted 4 skeletons and traveled LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE city and found 0black desert city has recruitable skeleton bar hobos iirc. alternatively, a mod that adds groups of skeletons to almost every appropriate bar : steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1638392767>Balance is the game restraining the player instead of the latter doing it himself, that's the whole point.the recruit anyone mod is just that, a modification to the game. the base game is balanced enough with bar hobos for recruitment. adding the modification to the game removes the balance from the game and instead placing it on the player in trade for an unrestrained mechanic. complaining about the lack of balance in a modification that removes balance is like opening a door while it's cold outside and complaining about the cold.> So why not have that as a restraint in the mod itself?if you wish for the ability to recruit anyone but also want restraints there's a modification that already does such, which this argument is not about. this argument is as you said, about the recruit anyone mod. the purpose of the recruit anyone mod is again, to solely recruit anyone without restrictions. the mod itself is not the cheat, the user is. thrice now, fuck off. ad-hominem is not an argument.
>>250160657I don't think I've ever seen anyone recruitable at the bar in black desert
Oh sweet christ, I didn't get a warning until they showed up. If they hadn't gotten distracted by a pack of goats my four people would have been raped.
>>250160657>complaining about the lack of balance in a modification that removes balance is like opening a door while it's cold outside and complaining about the cold.If you actually read the previous posts, the original argument was and has always been made in the context of lack of recruits (both number and their starting quality, especially by endgame) and people often using these sort of mods due those gameplay limitations. So this mod was compared to ideas implementing a similar thing better, that could and should exist. Hence the reason you're always going to get called out as an aggressive child who needlessly lashes out whenever people actually attempt to discuss the issue, as if it was some sort of a personal attack and you felt the need to defend your choice of mods and by extension your own "gamer cred" on an anonymous imageboard. It's hilarious.
>>250157815Considering planetary problems is low on your average stellaris player, it makes sense that kenshi is simply abandoned. Stobe help the denizens when the first empire re-appears.>>250158250>Kenshi is in fact, the unofficial sequel to Sealab 2021
>>250161537the argument is not solely the lack of recruits or the lacking quality of recruits. the game supplies plenty of recruits in the form of bar hobos which regenerate as you recruit. the ability to recruit random npcs, to recruit anyone, and the balance of such is what the whole argument has been about. >ideas implementing a similar thing betterif by better you mean added restrictions, such already exist which again, this is not about.>needlessly lashes out whenever people actually attempt to discuss the issueneed i remind you that you were the one who replied to the comment in the first place. in fact your first complaint which is the target of the whole debate, once again, was about the lack of balance in a modification that removes balance. >>250156097you are not forced to restraint yourself, only for the sake of creating balance for the lack of. lacking restraint is cheating. fuck off. ad-hominem is not an argument.
>>250160479ok after about 30 minutes I think I found ityou take your base weight divided by the weight you're carrying and subtract it from 1. I feel like ive learned about this sort of this in math before and how to simplify it but that was like 10+ years ago. anyone know what I'm talking about?
>>250157815>>250158250>>250162225So like that one malfunctioning terraformer event in Stellaris?
Can the bonedog you get on guy with a dog start become elder? It seems people are unsure about it
>>250163263oh wait I think I simplified it.... ok I want an encumbrance of 70% for max str xp right? so I take my max carry weight and divide it by the inverse of what I want my encumbrance to be (1-0.7=0.3) and bam, I get how many units I need to be 70% encumbered.I still feel like I'm missing something though, like I can't figure out why that is how much you are encumbered. well whatever.
>>250163525You ever been to Venge?
>>250163045>the argument is not solely the lack of recruits or the lacking quality of recruitsNo one said it was, in fact so far you were and still are the one arguing whether the mod you like is cheating or not whereas others are trying to discuss it in the greater context of recruits and game balance or possible alternatives. The additional context was created by the very posts that brought it up and replying is a good way to start something related to previous discussions, or are you suddenly saying you're the one who gets to dictate "what this argument is REALLY about" and thus which arguments are valid. In an attempt to safe face due the fact your argument boiled down to a tantrum?>if by better you mean added restrictions, such already exist which again, this is not about.Of course you do.>fuck off>once more, fuck off.>thrice now, fuck off. >fuck offWe're not in middle school and "fuck off" isn't an argument.

>>250163045>if by better you mean added restrictions, such already exist which again, this is not about.??? that's literally what one poster was complaining about. It's utterly retarded to be able to, for example. recruit an inquisitor as a skeleton
>>250164272>No one said it was, in fact so far you were and still are the one arguing whether the mod you like is cheating or not whereas others are trying to discuss it in the greater context of recruits and game balance or possible alternatives.correct. that's solely what I've been arguing, whether the mod is cheating or not. my entire basis from 250156097>throws balance straight out of the window and allows you to boost straight to endgame content unless the player knowingly restricts themselves>we need a better recruitment system>Though I don't really find lack of highly leveled recruits that much of a issuewhile i agree that a better system is needed i also believe the base game's system is balanced enough to get by. the recruit anyone mod in my eyes is the best system that expands the existing system such that the user restricts themselves as opposed to the alternative recruitment mod that includes restrictions. >We're not in middle school and "fuck off" isn't an argument. Swearing is hardly needed when you're already very proficient at showing off how angry you are.agreed. ad-hominem is not an argument either.>you get triggered about without fail every single time people point that fact out, because you have low self-esteem and feel the need to protect your pet mod every time someone says anything remotely negative about it or suggests that better alternatives could exist. 250159519>Hence the reason you're always going to get called out as an aggressive child who needlessly lashes out whenever people actually attempt to discuss the issue, as if it was some sort of a personal attack and you felt the need to defend your choice of mods and by extension your own "gamer cred" on an anonymous imageboard. It's hilarious. 250161537>>250164843while i agree such cases are illogical there is no reason to be angry at the mod for not including such restrictions.

Guys im on day 46 of my first playthrough and having an absolute blast. I went through and downloaded a deecent amount of popular/recommended mods before starting and thought I had everything covered, but I just realized I forgot all about Cannibals Expanded. Can I download it now and continue my game or do I have to import after? Srry /Keng/ im pretty brainlet-tier when it comes to dealing with mods and whatnot

Im on my first playthrough, currently on day 48 roaming the lands genociding Dust Bandits and generally just building my skills. I have a group of 12 that range from 20-40 in terms of STR/DEX/TOUGHNESS but so far I feel like I havent left the area surrounding the Border Zone. Ive explored a deecent amount of the Shek territory to the west and a bit of HN territory to the north, but I want to head on my first real journey. Should I check out the Fog Islands and maybe make my way to Mongrel, or should I attempt to travel east to Shem for the first time? I know my party is still pretty weak so im looking for something somewhat in the relm of possibility
>notice my skeleton teammates are getting KOed in every fight>find out about repair beds>AFTER using my last engineering artifacts on researching some other stuffwelp.. i guess we're going back to the deadlands.
>>250184459Mongrel for sure. The Fog Islands will be a decent challenge to your team and you'll come out stronger and tougher... if you make it out at all.
>>250183457>want to give enough charity to the hobos that they like me enough to stop shaking me down>only 1 in 20 of the fucks actually bothers asking, the rest suicide charge and keep tanking their relationship with me at the tip of my swordGoddamn you starving fucks, just let me help you.

>>250184818Fog island are piss easy once you have enough athletics to run 20 mph and enough str to not be encumbered.
>>250180502Anyone with experience on this? I wanna know.
Can you not recruit limbless characters with recruitable prisoners? I rescued a "strayed paladin" from a fogman pole who has 3 missing limbs, took his weapon, and there's no option to talk to him. He's fed and healthy besides that. It's been days and he's just been sulking out there in the cage.
>>250186094High Paladins aren't recruitable for some reason.Unnamed Inquisitors are though, go figure.
>>250186019What if I want to actually get rid of the stickman filth though? What does it take to completely cleanse the area?
>>250186268Half a dozen characters with 50-60 in most combat stats, heavy armor and decent weapons can do that. Just a couple if they have prosthetics. And i mean clear ALL the fog.
>>250186213The mod page says they are, specifically strayed paladins... I had a cloud ninja that didn't wanna talk without a leg, I'll try giving him premium hiver crutches
I recently added those mods to my modlist and it completly tanked my framerate in settlementsespecially bigger ones and my basewhich mod is most likely causing it?
>>250186268World State anon is probably your only hope, there's nothing in the baseline game that can be permanently done about the Fogmen menace, but maybe he'll add some conditions to finally genocide the little shits.
>>250186594It's either Interactive World or Random Squad Numbers and a really big merc squad spawned
>>250186094Just get Recruit Everyone, the mod you're using is full of issues and a huge waste of time.
>>250186594I take that back, it's ONLY my baseand it seems to be getting worse
>>250183096I regularly visit the mechanic shop in mongrel to "borrow" supplies.They never caught not even once but somesay the shopkeeper now knows my characters are thieves and refuses to talk to me even though i have no bounties and he doesn't become aggressive.It's like he saw me enter and his stuff disappear after i showed up and he put the two things together. Scary AI is becoming self aware.
>>250186953Try shift+f12 push a bunch of buttons and see if it helps
does the longsword make a good sidearm? I don't really wanna use katanas or blunt weapons, and characters won't automatically switch to martial arts indoors if they have weapons (even with penalties) so...

Holy fuck what is with the amount of bandits in this game. 4 times in one day I get raided. I can't even heal up by the time I get raided again. I have 12 people, but there's nothing I can do with this frequency.
>>250196628you probably have raid frequency up
So wielding requirements are 2x the weight of the weapon right? Does that mean nobody will ever be able to use a Meitou fragment axe correctly unless they max strength AND use a pair industrial lifter arms?
>>250196725YesAnd as soon as they take a little hit in strenght they'll be useless
>>250196674Wasn't even aware this was a slider. Thanks. Hopefully these damn starving bandits will go fuck themselves somewhere else. Im tired of having a million iron rods everywhere.
>>250186596Here comes some autism: the Fogs are permanently expanding an always being pushed forward as the HN collapse. Touching th West Queen is a great way to throw your world into the gutter.I can, but won't just yet, do anything about Mongrel. Rather, I'm setting the stage in the West, i.e., the Gulf to provide a little better visceral experience as to what the Fog Islands are, how they're dealt with by their neighbors and what it means to both lose to and press upon the Fogs."Saving" Mongrel is high priority, but we have endless issue of what the hell is "supposed" to be going on in the Fog Islands? The Western Hive offers no answers, they are literally written to "not know anything" and hand you a busted fucking lamp. You want a better Fogmen? Get a better explanation for the Queen. Right now, it makes no sense. An endlessly flowing wave of little blue fucks that have no reproduction point other than >it says to do that in the FCSBut nowhere in the lore is it discussed. Even the setting up of Mongrel appears to be: "We ran away from HN, shit was so cash, now there's things in this foggy place. Oh no!"I'll get there, but man, even justifying Mongrel's existence is rough. Why do you think Beep is there? You couldn't reasonably justify hanging around the Islands unless you're that fucking bored.
>>250196725>>250196829This is why Meitou falling sun will always be superior to the fragment axe, because with maxed stats you can keep using it even if you take strength damage.
>>250195365the severe lack of CYBERDONGS in Kenshi makes me sad :<
>>250196971A lot of them wander into the islands then get chased to Mongrel. Which is what happened to Beep.Beak things chased him into the islands, fogmen chased him into Mongrel.
>>250195341You are wrong, he is a charming manlet and a good friend that always has your back covered. No homo.
>>250197038The severe lack of sex mod in kenshi makes me depressed :[
>>250197097I'm speaking from a gameplay point of view, Mongrel does very little for the game and if Beep wasn't there, far less would ever bother going / sticking around. It's cute, but again, it gets into the issue of the Fogmen ignore dynamics and possibly even their own lore (how can they just keep coming?). I get the idea, I just still think Mongrel has never been a sensible model. The UC is starving, but at least they have Slavers keeping it together. Mongrel doesn't have any implied system sustaining it. Literally outlaws and escapees pouring into the city while the Fogs are given more food. It all breaks down the moment you mention food.>But muh ninjas are sneaking food inThe Ninjas, quite literally, have no reasonably way to do this. The guards who fall to the waves of Fogs are also easily feeding a horde of starving vagrants? Something has to give.
>>250197317it just sucks man
>>250196843And as soon as I slid the bar to minimum, I got attacked by three different groups at once. GG
>>250197349If they were getting fed easily then they wouldn't be starving
>>250197379they're less frequent now but more intense? lmaoWhere did you settle? Betweem hub and squin or that place in skimsands?
>>250197478But not reproducing. Which then means, if you take your squad into the Islands and commit wholesale genocide, what then justifies their continuance? Configuration.
>>250197349Aren't there hydroponics in some buildings? There are in World's End, i would expect to find them there too.
>>250197539Between Hub and whatever that first holy city is called. Had pretty frequent hungry bandit raids and eventually made enemies with them with how often they threw themselves at me. Then I had a sand bandit group set up really close, and am not really confident I could take them all out, or if that would even get them to piss off, and now apparently the holy outlaws have decided to toss their hat in the ring.
>>250197571It stands to reason that tech hunters would share tech with Mongrel to help them stay alive. I don't know why that's an issue
>le luxury feature>le feature complete
>skeletons>crossbows>stealth>ma>op as fuck base with no downsidesI have to absolutely handicap myself "roleplaying" to feel a challenge. I know it's sandbox but still.
>>250195708Sometimes, when you leave your base long enough, your prisoners will actually despawn. I had a full prison camp of skeletons and half of them vanished.
>>250198674So this is what Chris meant by luxury feature
>>250198674>leave prisoners unattended>they're gone when you return
>>250195862Import with dead people on would do that. I made a normal import and nobody else disappeared, so it can't be it. Well, I don't know for sure, because I noticed it later.>>250196059Nah, I'm pretty sure he was there after I put him back.>>250196502It must've bugged out then. I once had a Deathyard with negative 50 population and it still wasn't destroyed.>>250198674I mean, there's always somebody in my base so it doesn't despawn fully.
>>250199018>Implying prisoners picked locks in their cages and ran away.>Without arms OR legs still attached to their bodies.
>Characters can be spawned with robot limbsSure sounds like a luxury feature to me
>>250199308>hungry bandits phase through your walls>hungry bandits see stumpy in a cage>looks like meat's back on the menu boys.avi
>>250196971>ll get there, but man, even justifying Mongrel's existence is roughIt's literally the perfect place in the Kenshi world to live. It's a prison, but still the perfect one.
>>250198216To be fair, handicapping yourself with those isnt very hard. Training stealth is a chore, equipping crossbows to everyone and getting arrows is a chore and doesnt let you equip awesome big weapons, Skeletons are very few in the game unless you cheese with recruit anyone and not enough to form a big gang. MA is kind of OP, yes, but only if you cheese it by making a chore out of it and raise it very high. It's totally fine if you don't epxloit poor mechanics and train it naturally, cause it rises very slow and gets better late-game.
>>250197571The Mongrel Autism guy who posts about 6 posts daily about how Mongrel doesn't make sense has hydrophonics pointed out to him every single post and has never replied it and keeps posting about how it doesn't make sense.Don't even bother at this point.
>Go to Black Scratch to get Fallin Sun's BP>There is no Falling Sun BP, but there is one for Assassin's Rags which supposedly didn't exist.>Walk out of the shop>Get attacked by a random Reaver who bolted through the guards>Beat up the Reavers.>Tech Hunter Guards start attacking me as well>Accidentally one took 250 damage to the face and died>"Tech Hunters are now hostile.">Went from 0 to -75 due to one kill.>Turns one I'm a retard and the BP was in the Scraphouse all along.
>>250199913But theres not hydroponics, you made me check
>>250199913I get that Mongrel doesn't make a lot of sense. But most Kenshi settlements don't and most settlements in all videogames don't. If you go purely by what is shown, since lore rarely equates perfectly to it
Mongrel doesn't make sense Chris. Why would you make a city with a fuckton of species out to eat you. And there is no food for them since there aren't any animals and no one built hydroponics
>>250200705That's laziness on the part of Chris, it still makes perfect and absolute sense since there are hydrophonics in the game and Mongrel has fog.
What personality tag does the initial player character start with, if any? Is it random?
>>250201019Fogmen have no assault equipment, they cannot get past the walls (and likely don't want to). Meanwhile they keep invaders out, since you can't really travel TO the city.It is the absolute ideal location for safety.No hydrophonics = game was feature complete and had no time for details
Continuing discussion of vanishing prisoners.>Captured Slave Mistress Ren and two of her guards.>Carry on my merry way.>A few days later I check on her.>Only one guard is left.Do you know what time it is?Yes, it's import time.
>Try out the Rebirth start>End up having 4 characters.>??????>Check settings.>Squad size: 2So.Anyone know what's up with that?
Getting your arms dismembered in a controlled environment seems easy enough, legs seems to be harder to dismember
>>250202881Just sit on a fogman pole and have your robolimbs ready.
>>250202969thisonce they eat your legs equip the scout proethetics and run away
>>250202969>>250203071Never thought of that before, thanks. But what if you're a skellington?
>>250203283use the skin bandit's peelers or build one yourself
>>250199018The prison camp is gated. And said gate is locked when the camp isn't in use.
>>250204002>get enslaved>shackles are locked>cage is lockedhmm what to do
>>250204167>You got captured>They didn't shackle you. Good.>They put you in a funny looking cage.>Motors rev up.>It starts spinning.>Your skin is being ripped off you alive.>Then your muscles.>You see a wide grin on your assailant's face.>You pass out.>You wake up in a cage.>What an awful dream.>You still aren't shackled. Good.>You look down your legs.>You have no legs.>You try to reach out to make sure.>You have no arms.>It wasn't a dream.
>>250204978Writing that actually reminded me of a fucked up dream I had, except it was some random bar and the character I observed at least had one arm left.
What can i do with Moll when i capture this filthy rat?
>>250206680strip naked and crucify in front of the gates of Blister Hill
A few questions about mods. What are my fellow anons' opinion on:New Weapons Dissemination modThe Triangle bandits that come with itAnd the attack slot mods. I don't know whether to add it.
>>250206680>>250207304Inquisitors seem to enjoy it well enough
>>250207673don't do attack slots if you play soloyou will get dabbed on by literally anything with numbers
>>250207673All really good choices, go get them.
>>250202870Some escapee joined early
>>250208059What's the fun of going solo if every encounter will be people standing there sword in hand attacking you one at a time like they are at a grocery waiting to get their turn to order?
>>250208429because when your retard of a PC engages and inevitably dances their way smack dab straight into the fucking middle of a literal forest of swords (every time. every fucking time), it doesn't matter that they're taking turns, because they will be hitting you from all sides with absolutely no pause between the attacks
Raid was succesful, but not without sacrifice, one of our brothers has died>>250207673Add them all, they're pretty good. Also go for the NWDM Remodeling too, can't go wrong with that
>>250197539Yeah, i'm assuming a glitch now. I have the everything turned to lowest, and I just got three dust bandit raids one after the other in 3 in game hours.
If I import a world, will it make the dust bandits fuck off? Even with everything turned to lowest I am getting a near constant raid. This shit ain't fun
why the FUCK are my mods not loadinggame has been verified twicemods are subscribedwhen launching through steam, the mods aren't even visible in the "mod load" tabwhat can I do to unfuck this
>>250209739>Not employing crabs at the gates
>>2502099201. Find mods where ever Steam places them.2. Put them to into the "mods" folder in the game's main directory.3. Make sure mod folders have the same names as .mod files inside them.
>>250210693>Implying I've put enough hours in the game to even know what that is. I don't even have a dude at 20 attack yet in the game. This shit is fucking retarded.
>>250209739>Not capturing the dust king using mercs thus turning off the raids and getting 30k cats and a sick sabreJesus i can count your iq on my fucking fingers
>>250211394Well you need to get a sense of crustacean collaboration in the holy nation my friend
>>250210985cheers m8will they ever patch this up? It's just a weird bug
>>250211597>Implying I have any fucking moneyAll of my money has gone the way of food and med supplies. I have no idea where the dust bandit fucker is, and Im losing people because there is a constant raid. I'll push off one, and another will start immediately after. If its not by the dust bandits it'll be someone else.
Is the UI picture with all the panels and buttons The UI? Like I could pimp it up in graphics editor if I wanted?
>>250212310You are not ready to have a base if you're getting pushed around by fucking bandits, mate
Hey so I just started a new game in the Hub, and I got captured pretty much immediately while exploring by these guys, the "black dragon ninjas".How do I escape now? I can break out of the cage, but they just spend their entire day sleeping in the way of the only exit, and if (when) they spot me they'll just instantly knock me out.
>>250211394Simple. Have someone run to the crab isles in the south east (watch out for the reavers and cultsits), buy a couple of crabs, take em back to your outpost and raise them to elderhood, then watch as they decimate the bandits for you.
>>250212570You don't listen my dude. I've repelled over 30 bandit invasions today alone. But they do not stop. It will happen one after the other.
>>250212753>I've repelled over 30 bandit invasions today aloneyou mean today, like this Monday, or one in-game day?because if it's the latter then yes, that's honestly pretty fucking hard to grasp
>>250212626Keep doing that, practice makes perfect
>>250212873Today, roughly 4 or 5 invasions every in game day. Like I said, a constant stream.
Anyone noticing a gpu hit after the update? It's doubled my usage.
>>250213174Where did you goddamn settle to be punished like this? Bast? Bast is the only place i know where you can get fucked by everything and everyone.
>>250213750Same, always averaged around 30% or below with shadows off, seeing spikes towards 50%-60% load now. Probably killing some people's cards.
>>250213750>>250214045>Kenshi performance update>murders your computer Checks out.
>>250214045it's pretty much frying my 1070ti to the point where I can't properly watch youtube videos while the game is running, but I do have everything maxed with no mods that reduce/compress shit
small update regarding populating settlements, re-worked Okran's Fist and Shield are pictured:been walking around the HN looking at resident configurations and really had to set about re-handling how towns are configured to be populated. people have probably seen the pointless Stephouse at Okran's Fist many a time, it has a use now
>>250214801>>250214990>Laughs in 1.0.14
>>2502161941.0.8 here, am i missing out on anything good?
>>250215294When will you add hydroponics to Mongrel so mongrelanon will stop being a bitch about it?
>>250213750>>250214045Alright, thanks for warning. Guess it's offline mode this week
The game crashed 3 times over the past 15 minutes - it never happened before. Is it my potato PC or did Chris just do something again?
Planning to build an outpost above body of water ala Shark. I assume some building mods already have something to accomodate such structures, bridges and whatnot, and if so, how glitchy are they?
I swear all my squad have just become braindead. They're struggle to path in my outpost where they previously were absolutely fine.
>>250216962I'll do it now, at least then he'll have to come up with some new angle to be upset over it.
>>250212626Keep tryingAlso keep trying knocking them out and stripping them naked.If you succeed you have your self a pretty good way to train thievery by just stealing the same shit over and over.Also sneak around a lot and unlock every locked thing you see.Godspeed.
>>250217381Try opening your gate.Maybe the braindead is you
>>250217559It's within the walls.
>get more than 20 people on my party>game now crashes every 15 minutesis there any way to fix this?
>>250216701Definitely not any L U X U R Y F E A T U R E S.
can we stop talking about the food situation and Mongrel now?
>>250218735Finally Mongrel makes sense. Its a shame a modder have to do it
I don't know what i expected
>>250218998That's what you get lmao
>>250196971>I'll get there, but man, even justifying Mongrel's existence is roughCannibals in the north, Slaving fucks in east. Mongrel has lore books and it implies their ninjas went to rebirth to rescue some guy before they established the place, so it's reasonable they'd head east. Remember that hiver's weren't even a thing until recently, though I don't know if the lore books address that or not.
>>250218998>siding with HNyou deserved it
>>250218998>being a woman in HN territorycome on
>>250197349>But muh ninjas are sneaking food in>The Ninjas, quite literally, have no reasonably way to do this. The guards who fall to the waves of Fogs are also easily feeding a horde of starving vagrants? Something has to give.they quite literally do. That's exactly how I managed to get resources to build an outpost and feed everyone when I first established a base on the islands
>>250168115>more posesAnyone know what mod this is?
And were not even dealing any damage to eachother, thanks Chris>>250219079I kinda expected that if i come with my mates he would realize i didnt do it "all alone, without the aid of your holy brothers" but i guess thats a luxuary feature, no?>>250219129And what did you ally anon? Nigge- i mean Shek, Human jews or the Hive jews?
>>250219443He's also assuming that shinobi from outside Mongrel aren't doing supply runs in and out
>>250219616>he thinks that HN are the go-to moral choice just because they're HumanYou're probably am*rican
>>250219443They all say you can't get out, but there's hydrophonics and fog = water. Chris was just too lazy to add the obvious details, they're implied.
>>250208429Attack slots was set to 1 for a reasonI hope you enjoy dodging/blocking forever
>>250219616>Hive jewsThey're poosHive culture is clearly based off indian/gypsy culture
>>250219616>I kinda expected that if i come with my mates he would realize i didnt do it "all alone, without the aid of your holy brothers" but i guess thats a luxuary feature, no?As much as I love to meme about luxury features, what check would you put in place here? He could do a squad member count, but that wouldn't really work since you can still talk to the Inquisitor alone with the rest of your squad elsewhere. You made the mistake of sending a dog to talk to an Inquisitor but it's one you won't make again.
>>250219627Here's the problem, the various factions involved are not properly being represented. If the Fogmen are as big of a threat as they seem, then it stands to reason that Mongrel is either far more powerful than it appears on the map (literally a Tech Hunter settlement) or the HN has absolutely no interest or means to penetrate the Fog Islands, but apparently the ninjas do, on the regular, with little interference. Yet these same superheroes still get overrun in the end. It's tossing out too many dynamics to just decide "yeah but, ninjas are cool and can do anything". Then why doesn't Mongrel just invade? If the HN is so goddamn weak that it can't even hold off the Fogmen any better than the Ninjas, damn sure they should be toppled ASAP. Except that's all just done out of convenience, isn't it?
>>250219749>just because they're HumanNo, becouse they plan to get rid off Shek, Hivers and Skeletons. Okran is most likely a made up God by original founder of HN in order to more easily influence the masses into fighting those other races
Any non cheese ways to train MA?
>>250220448literally just play the game
>>250220236Like 50%+ of the population of mongrel are ninjas with stats in the 60s. Statistically they are far superior to any run of the mill HN footsoldierI have a base in the islands, I have seen the HN try to push in when they assault me and they get absolutely annihilated every time they pull aggro from fog-men while the only time I see a mongrel guy go down is if they somehow stray too far from the city and end up in a 50 vs 1 scenario.>the HN has absolutely no interest or means to penetrate the Fog IslandsThey don't. What is stealth?
>>250220236A few skinny sneaky quickie bois who do supply runs aren't really going to add to the strength of a faction. Mongrel doesn't have the strength or the numbers to invade. The Holy Nation's only goal is to keep the fogmen from spilling out into their lands, they're not going to waste resources when they're fighting a war on two other fronts.
>>250220236Slipping past some insane poos is different than invading with an army you retard. You can easily get to mongrel by being careful, having quick characters and watching yourself, but if you try to get through by fighting you get overwhelmed.This isn't fucking complicated
>Chris "updates" the game>some worker brought his laptop to the Notre Dame to play Kenshi during his break
>>250220335>>250219616shek did literaly nothing wrongsure they might not be the brightest ones but they're least evil and jewish of all factionsand they have thickest women
>>250217245>>250218180I fixed all my crashing problems by reinstalling the game and importing my save. If you have it on steam, validating your files instead of reinstalling might work. I think the game is so janky that sometimes it corrupts its own files.
>>250220673>>250220716>>250220801Stop fucking focusing on the Ninjas, it's the Fogmen that are the problem. If the player kills the Fogmen off, then what? We have no understanding or answer as to what is going on. I don't care about supply runs, I care about the fact that this mystery enemy can totally define the dynamics and the other factions and never offered anything in return. If Mongrel and the HN are locked in a static hold at the game start, what happens when things change? Esata Dead, Tengu Dead, Flotsam Dead, HN looking pretty fucking large and in charge. Player goes on genocide of Fogmen. No change. Player kills West Queen. Fogmen Empower. Arc dies. HN gets invaded. Somewhere in there, someone decided "the Fogmen never stop ever no matter what's going on around them". Fuck defending that paradigm, seriously reaching.
>>250221121Siding with them will make the world like africa, or you know, how kenshi is just times 10
>>250219812Yeah to be fair this is pretty much given with all of the settlements. I mean the UC barely have any farms yet they're well stocked. There's like two private residences for towns with populations in the hundreds and size isn't exactly realistic either. You have to let your imagination run with these kind of video games.Like when two fresh recruits talk about why they though when they met eachother, the game obviously thinks its an old character but you just have to imagine something more creative for the narrative, like that they were good friends before you picked them up.
>>250221536>talks about ninjas>stop focusing on the ninjas
>>250222046You have to run circles and turn them into an endless wave of replacable highly trained Ninjas that can fight off an equally infinite wave of Fogmen. The Fogmen have no clear end point. I thought breaking down the absurdity of Mongrel would help, yeah, it can be fixed, but it still requires further development. What's up with the Queen? Why don't the Hivers expand via override? Basically, Mongrel is stuck being argued for as is because of what we have.
>>250221536Fogmen are mentally challenged wimps, their only strength in their own homes is that they are a horde. Even when those chodes all die fogmen don't actually go that far, oh sure they do some fringe appearances in okrans pride but they obviously aren't swarming the world unchallanged or even with ease. Consider also that these factions are in huge termoil when you do kill their leader, the fogmen actually getting anywhere is pure luck being out of the public eye. And honestly dude, the fact that you wont run out of fogmen is just a game mechanic because actually making a death toll mechanic is hard to balance. They'd die out like any other people if killed enough.
>>250222367Because the game isn't fucking finished
>>250221560>africa>worse than a medieval post apocalyptic shitholelol
>>250219616>And what did you ally anon? Nigge- i mean Shek, Human jews or the Hive jews?The fucking irony of reading this while looking at your screenshot is amazing. You've put a paladin plate on a chick and proceeded to hunt down a faction of women who escaped society that treated them as second rate people and put them in fucking gulags for great crimes such as, being able to read or speak their mind. You've brought their leader in front of a literal muslim Imam who spits in your face because you're a woman and women can't do shit without holy brothers present. This is karma. Flawless fucking karma. I hope you've learned your lesson and burn down that shithole on every subsequent run.Make your own faction or ally with the ninjas. They are just trying to live in peace away from people who treated them like shit for no reason.
>>250222883You. I like you.
>>250222591why not both?
>>250218998Armored dustcoats are way chunkier than i expected.The only problem is they clip with evetything that isn't from the mod.
>>250221536>If the player kills the Fogmen off, then what?that's not really a question that can be answered since we still don't know how they are multiplying
>>250222591Give him a cute dress and make him become a ballerina
>>250223512There's probably a gigantic fog queen hiding beneath the surface and shitting them out non-stop
>>250221536It's a fucking game retard, there's respawns of shit. Yeh, it's not answered why animals spawn out of thin air, yet they still do and it'd be a shit game if they didn't. The implication is fogmen are more than you can kill off, or they reproduce - nobody said you NEED a queen to do so. Ants can reproduce asexually, so can many insects and many insects can just reproduce with a random female, she doesn't HAVE to be a queen, they're just geared to treat her like that. You're presenting implications yourself then saying implications are retarded. I have no idea whether you're holding onto this idea to stave off your eventual suicide from being too autistic, but it's getting really fucking boring already.
>>250222883This is karma. Flawless fucking karma. I mean, you're not wrong>proceeded to hunt down a faction of womenactually i had a bit of war going on there with them since i fucked up dialogue when i stumbled upon one of thier outposts, had to take them out otherwise my traders would get ambushed and risk getting my traders taken away by cannibals.>I hope you've learned your lesson and burn down that shithole on every subsequent run.kinda conflicted about this, since they're the best faction for humans, maybe after i take out everyone else, also, creating my own faction isnt an option i think, since you can only have 256 people and it'll feel wierd having them so spread out around the world. Does "Player town settlers" allow for single race folk? Might actually feel alright to be a faction with this mod>>250223417>clip with evetything that isn't from the modbut the mask turns invisible once you put on helmet, no?
Mongrel creates the fogmen in a secret lab under the city
>>250223554Eyegore is the cutest girl.CUTEST!
>>250223554sadly I don't think there's a mod that both adds dresses, and has support for hivers.
>>250224008>best faction for humansBest faction for human males maybe and even then that's debatable.
>>250224260They are the best faction in general, the only one that has a chance to create a decent civilization. Women will get rights in a few hundred years, once times become easier. Nothing will get done with Skeletons fucking shit up, greedy noble faggots destroying society because they feel like it, or bone skinned barbarians fighting everything with a pulse. Once they are gone, the HN can build a functioning society that will eventually progress into something less dogmatic
>>250222883basedat least if you make friends with the UC you become immune to all of its disadvantages, same with Sheks but they are become respectful too
>>250224851>UC you become immune to all of its disadvantagesYou practically become a noble at that point so no wonder>Sheks but they are become respectful tooStill doesn't change the fact that Shek have literally no future plans for any kind of civilization other than bash in shit that already exists,
>>250224431They're not free. They're brainwashed from birth to believe all women are shits and that anyone who doesn't look like them is evil. Look at how farmers react when they get attacked, they don't know shit about the world they live in. That's not a good existence, but hey at least you get a free ration pack for being a greenlander with a wang. >>250224731>Women will get rights in a few hundred years, once times become easier.We don't know that for sure. The United Cities could become the best faction in a few hundred years. Anything is possible in that length of time but right now, the Holy Nation is shittersville.
I just got this game. What can I expect from my first embark?
Well this is pretty gay
>>250226042>Hungry Bandits: Ascended Mod
>>250225912getting bullied by everyone
>>250226042That's a first
>>250225376>Shek have literally no future plans for any kind of civilization other than bash in shit that already existsSheks are martial meritocracy living in the middle of an ludicrously hostile world filled with literal monsters and xenophobic dickhead neighbors. Let me illustrate. When you arrive at Stack as a greenlander woman, the gate guard will pat you down and maybe utter some passive agressive bullshit about feeble flatskins. From that point on, as long as you behave as a decent fucking person, you've got absolutely nothing to worry about. You can buy a house and live there, with a legion of genetically engineered soldiers guarding your sweet dreams. When you arrive at Blister Hill as a Shek woman. You will be fucking killed on sight. The end.
>>250222551The solution to fogmen involves Skellies and repair beds. On that subject, ever tried to settle in the Shrieking forest with the Shrieking bandits mod on? You'll be drowning in drug addled ravers.>>250222591Only if you really like Eyegore. I'm more of a Cat-Lon man myself.
>>250226394The Sheks seem hard built with a narrow moral compass. All the same though, if you kill their leaders they turn into rampaging barbarians, they almost seem to need a clear hierarchy or they break down.
>>250226394>>250225376fuck I meant Squin, not Stack
>>250226042Nothing wrong with this. They are so thin they just get pushed through the gaps by the rest.

>>250226394Shek kingdom is only as peaceful as it is now due to the reforms brought on by the Stone Wall after she defeated the previous Shek general in an honor duel. The fact that Shek's find surviving a defeat to be a dishonor also is a problem, any defeat means every soldier dies. Shek culture is on a death march only held in check by one woman and her "dishonored" servant, still not a good long term plan for the future.
>>250226371I left the area with my starting gang, ran into a patrol of dudes who apparently did not like someone and proceeded to butcher the entire party. Fuckers didn't even have the decency for a mercy kill or a customary looting of the dead, just fucked my shit up for reasons and went on their way. When should I reload because it was my first encounter and I don't think any of my dudes has a full set of limbs. Also they're unconscious, bleeding out, and a little hungry.
>>250219580I gave you a major hint, bud. Put on your detective hat and find the mod by yourself.

>>250221039>Chris is a britbong>mfw it all makes sense!
>>250218998the chain of posts leading up to this was the funniest thing i've read on these forums. Poetic as fuck
>>250221121>and they have thickest womenIf Chris and\or his teammates will ever make a post that a human can impregnate female sheks - there will be no reasons whatsoever to NOT woo the Stone Golem and her bony amazon babes. Her cute little daughter will be a sweet, juicy cheery on top by that moment.
>>250228706The worst part is that the stone golem would be all for it.Especially impregnating her young extremely fertile daughter.
>>250221409>validating your files instead of reinstalling might worksteam just said that 16 files were bad, apparently. I think (You)r advice helped, thanks!
>>250217447I'm trying, but these fuckers won't heal me after putting me back into the cage like slavers would, and eventually I just run out of medkits and bleed to death. Guess I should just restart at this point.
>>250228891>impregnating her young extremely fertile daughter.Stone Golem is an old, battle worn woman. She can't start a proper bloodline with dozens of Sheks just so the best two or three of them could actually reach the adulthood and lead their race. Naturally the widely loved little shek sweetheart will have to pop a dozen of bone babies. Her strong, laconic mommy wants lots of healthy grandchildren anyway.
Day 37, the Swamp. A small band of Isekai'd turbosluts decided that even though chewing on raw meat all the time might be totemo sugoii, and it might strengthen their already razor-sharp teeth -- they still need something nice and cool to go down their thirsty throats once in a while. Surprisingly enough, they can actually survive on nothing but booze, thanks to a little totally lore-friendly mod. Kenshi is an amazing place.
>>250228403calm down hatsune neko.
Can you get reinforcements from more than 1 ally during an attack on your outpost?Like Flotsam + Shek both coming to help during wrath of god

You will never rail that little shek pussycat on the royal bed until she is pregnant for another time from you. You will never hear her tough but fair mother congratulating you for your 'efforts' in rebuilding her proud, but short-sighted race of genetically changed horned cops. You will never hear the little shek princess complaining to you that because of your endless lust for her body - her tits and her butt grew up by quite a few sizes. This all will never happen. Why even live?
>>250230594did anyone send that inventation to her already?
>>250231432Probably? The crazy bitch most likely thought that the evul nyatzees sent her the invitation and shit.
>Skeletons can survive without heads>still die if their head HP goes too far into the negativeswhat did chris mean by this?
My run is going well.
>>250228403>The nation that buries women alive or kills them for the slightest of transgressions and has a KOS policy against the majority of living beings on worldWomen ONLY need to live long enough to birth 2-3 children. After that they've served their purpose. Non-humans can die off too.
When will Chris add hydroponics in mongrel so the city will make sense?
How often does your squad member randomly drop a person that he carried? Becouse we have an empty fucking grave here and i dont know where the body is>>250231813Imagine smashing your computer with a sledge hammer, you're not salvaging that
>>250231391Every dollar spend on genetically engineered catgirls is a dollar not spent on genetically engineered horned cops with bone plates on their tits and hip handlebars for domestic ownership.>>250231813Simply. There's a supplementary CPU in the torso in case there are minor malfunctions in the AI-driven CPU in the head. Bypass the need for the main CPU, update OS to be self sufficient and the head would become completely redundant.But I'm probably thinking about it way more than Chris did making it.
>>250231813How do skeletons even gain strength? They can't cultivate muscle.
>>250231938what's with the carl(karl?) on that pik?
>>250232840FEATURE COMPLETEAnd more seriously. They were meant to use a more extensive version of the prosthetic system, by swapping parts to get stronger, but Chris being lazy never ended up bothering to actually implement that.
>>250231938maybe those japanese walls wouldn't be such a fucking eyesore if they were at least a little bit worn down
How do you play an earlier version of the game? This update makes my computers fan turn on and I hate it.

>>250236414ok she got to fucking 50 while I made this postthis is fucking ridiculous
Imagine seeing >>250218998 and then going on a rant like >>250222883 instead of saying >feature completelmaoing at your life right now.

>>250239010I should also point out that I built a secondary gate and set of walls to act as a killhouse, with 4 mounted crossbows, and that pretty much solved my problem. I have a sentry mounted crossbow on the outer wall and when they start firing and alert me, I pull them into the middle wall, along with more folks, and by the time they break the gate, I end up just turning the entire shoothouse into strawberry jelly.
i always forget that drifter's last is a city that exists
>>250239495Not that anon, but you made me curious if there are HN women who ran away with skeletons just to spite the HN.
>>250239394Well if it was feature complete surely the paladin would had noticed the three men by her side. Instead seizure anon used it as an excuse to go on an shrieking rant instead of>luxury features
What the fuck is with these holy guard motherfuckers? They want to pray, but they run away when I try to come talk to them. Alright then. It's war then.
do I have to take them out or will the get completly grinded away?
>>250240465>shrieks>accuses others of shrieking
>>250237649What did it do? Haven't played in a while but noticed the game updated.
>>250241067You definitely want to take him out because his corpse will clutter up the machine with no way of extracting the corpse.Assign a guy in the corpse disposal and they'll clean the peeler machine for you.
>>250240465it's the same concept as a shek talking to a paladin even when he's with a greenlander male. Why would a lesser individual initiate the conversation if they were fulfilling their proper role?
>>250240465Well that is intended as anon pointed out, when you use [non-human male] to talk with [Holy Soldier] the RNG will go against you.
>>250237649what's wrong with it, did it break the autistic's mod because of the world state thing?
>>250237169What am I looking at here?>>250236414Why do training dummies level so fast? Are we supposed to use stronger NPCs than our dudes?
>>250243358they level so fast exactly because they are fighting someone who is a league above them in stats and the same applies to player charactersI wasn't aware NPC's have dynamic stats but apparently they do and they even keep themI've build a bunch of uncapped training dummies in the flotsam village for shits and while my PC was hanging around, they leveled like crazy and actually all of them kept those numbers even after I returned from the other side of the mapthey are all written into the saveevery single NPC you've ever metthat's why the saves get bloated so damn much
>scorchlander babes will have bright white pubescute
>>250243895This explains why some of my saves have performance issues. There's alot of data to compile. So the best policy here is to literally kill them all.
I keep getting crashes, thought it was my ram I just installed but ran a bunch of stresstests and got zero errors.Is there a mod that's conflicting with the new update? I tried importing my game, restarting PC, etc.I can't get any program to actually read the crash dump file. Never heard of a .DMP file before.
>>250243895>that's why the saves get bloated so damn muchSorry for being idiotic, but care to explain why NPCs having levels way higher than they're supposed to have fucks saves?
>>250156862>getting WACO'd in Kenshinice
Rate my tech hive ladsI need to make space for an arena
>>250246463Is not the NPCs having higher stats.Is the stats themselves being tracked.
Mates, I just foken killed Mirage and his lads, is the United Heroes League truly over?
>>250243312the mod's working just fine from my testing of it, I think a lot of people's GPUs are being cooked though.I haven't crashed once
What are some good places to explore/visit when your squad is around 50-60s? I'm too high to fight dust bandits/mid tier foes around swamp and desert area and too low to go for cat-lon or bugmaster.
>>250249821The united heroes is not an organistation, its a concept. Someone will keep carrying that cape. Someone will go into that dark night to protect the innocent of the United Cities. So that no girlie needs to cry herself to sleep at night because a greedy stickman stole her food. So that no honest slaver have to come home to a family empty handed because a tinman stole his catch.So that no noble have to stand to the offensive smell of a peasant bonehead killing his female servants.No sir, They'll stick around. They're heroes.
>>250250885Go the black scratch or stobes, the reavers and skeleton bandits are usually though enough to level evenly with. After that you gotta go after factions.

Why don't games have a reputation system so that weak NPCs wont attack your god-like beings? Even AAA games don't seem to care about this, like Fallout

>>250258331OH NO HE ALSO HAS HIS CHILD'S DOLL ON HIM NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I'M LITERALLY HITLER
>>250258331Fuck him, he couldn't keep his children in line and paid the price for it.
>>250258331Because they're starving. And their motto is basically "its a dog eat dog world".Its like how the reavers are slaving murderous assholes but they're essentially running from an idea that anyone who didn't seek them out on day 1 is straight up just an evil asshole and every slave they take is for freedom and liberty.
does anyone know how I can enable player owned bonedogs to eat corpses? im not very experienced with modding.
>>250258787There's tons of mods for it but I think the hand done version is to open the FCS, go to player owned bonedogs and simply find the right tag to change into a yes or =1
what did I do wrong
Do my animals have fucking gut worms or something? Their hunger rate is retarded.
>>250258331Fun fact, if you actually talk to the asshole you can ally with them against the empire nobles. And if your allied with the anti-slavers you can broker an alliance between the two factions to pincer attack the empire nobles from the north and the south.Talking tends to solve problems.
>>250259523>get attacked repeatedly on sight by rebels>rebel farmers are now hostile>???
>>250259625Heal them or run away.
>>250259724Fuck that, it's shit game design.
>>250259724having a negative relation doesnt make the NPCs at the fort immediately hostile if it is over -30 or so.
>>250258959are you sure? im not seeing any mods that do that. also this isnt working.
>>250259625believe it or not, attacking people and knocking off their limbs does indeed make them angry.
>>250260090Well it should've worked.Guess you have to turn to google for your tips now.
>>250260116Yeah no shit, but don't run at my squad with weapons drawn and intent to kill and expect to not get your limbs knocked off. Point is, their cunt leader isn't going to even let you near him if you spend any amount of time in UC territory because these fools don't even have any varied interactions like hungry bandits. >feature complete
>>250260681finish the game chris
this hive run is being pretty succesful
>>250261085what's up with that gorillo?
>>250261234it's the big boy one from mourn
>>250261234gorillo is dead
>>250260494The rebels are literally starving for one, and two their banditry of people regardless of being allied with the nobility or not is actually a story point about why they dont have much support from the empire peasants.
>>250262357I get that, but you're missing the point. They don't have interactions like hungry bandits do. If you spend time in the UC you're inevitably going to run into them and it will ALWAYS be a hostile encounter. The game gives you zero reason to even consider that their cause might be joinable or even worth supporting unless you happen across Simion before your rep goes into the red enough to make you kill on sight.
>>250261401You could've tamed him and gained the fastest Gorillo. Athletics is 90+ and its fun to watch it go.
if you use prisoner recuitment mod you're a big cheater

>>250252057Still no oneI kidnapped and recruited 4 pillar-skeleton thralls, a really strong skeketon mercenary i stalked all night in a bar, 4 doggos wich are getting really big and now a bunch of paladins to use as workforce capable of defending itself (with hoes and pickaxes).
Why even call it a raid if all they do is take the bodies of the previous raid and run off with them immediately
>>250267743>saferI hope that means you'll be killing everyone but skeletons, right?
>>250268662they just want meat anon, they got no real beef with you.
>>250268932Ponk and screamer seems to disagree with you.
>>250264882Already beaten Cat-Lon and destroyed the empires without it in one playthrough. So its abuse time now.

>>250268662I would like the cannibals to clean up my camp grounds too.
>>250245682aren't all humans in Kenshi mostly hairless?
>>250264882Meh if cheating lets me recruit fun shit like weak thralls cannibals and randoms who lost all their limbs during the beatdown im all for it.My current goal is to get a thrall thats just a torso but the best ive got so far is just 2 limbs off.
>>250268932Everyone but humans
>>250268662Big cannibal milkers!
>>250270706Imagine how many children every each of them must have in order to sustain all those numbers cannibals have
Is it possible to delete the slave traders/hunters without being mortal enemies with the UC?
>>250270796Since they are big part of thier economy, i'd say no
>>250270635but anon, humans breed war, and that's not safe at all.
>>250270785The game should have some kind of 'breeding caves' for them. It is unrealistic that the cannibals can reproduce and reach adulthood on the surface in such numbers.
>>250271279There's lore books explaining that they get new members by kidnapping people and making them eat people meat
>>250271385STILL nearly not enough to replenish their loses from the fucking FAUNA of Kenshi, mein nigga. Not to mention the loses from crossbow turrets and gate guards
>>250271231War is good for the economy
>>250186085If skimsands are similar to shem, fertility should be 100% in many places (arid type tho) and wind generators are at 100% most of the time
is it logically sound that an area like burning forest has acid rain while all surrounding areas are completely acid-free?
>>250271467>inb4 theres another continent up from the northern coast full of cannibals
>>250273942my only thoughts on this are that maybe the continent is smaller in game than it is in lore like WoW?
>>250274348Simple boats as means of travel between the landmasses could be both lore-friendly and a good way to make the game Much Bigger. Alas, Chris is unwilling to be the hero we need.
Where the fuck are the rest of them
>>250274659maybe Gurglers and sea monsters prevent this from happening lore-wise. But it would be nice.
>>250273942Nope, its very weird.
>>250274659I feel like what we might see in Kenshi 2 is a larger map but more of it is underwater. Imagine a map, just talking out of my ass here, 4 times the size of Kenshi, but most of it is underwater so its mostly ocean, botes, and sea monsters.
How does healing someone for faction relationship work? Is it by how many points you heal or what?Also can you befriend bandits?
>>250274802Its probably gonna be a larger map in the sense that its island based.I'm sure the island of kenshi is gonna just be a small cluster of cities on small islands. There's probably gonna be a japan esque island too where the real deal is.
>>250217418That's cheating :)
>>250275034Reminder that using every skill except str,toughness,dex, and katanas is cheating. If you dare run during your playthough you're a filthy troglodyte.
>>250275312>using toughnessWow what a fucking cheater in this game your supposed to enter in a coma for getting grazed by a starving hobo's fist.
Not too sure about this one
>>250276565>he's a church boy
>>250274802Too much luxury feature for Chris to handle. I think we’re just getting Kenshi but with slight differences for 2 such as the Space Elevator still standing (probably can’t go up in it), no crater, no fog islands, and the Deadlands still heavily active and industrialized.My guess is the fcs will have a larger effect in 2 and entire areas and landscapes will be changed by our actions.
I like how you can see your outpost far away from it, but does it cause fps drop in later game when you have more outposts?
I feel like I ought to call PETA and admit the horrible crimes I committed in Kenshi. When the short and brutal fight was over - the crossbow ultrasluts collected enough eggs and weapons to buy end-game high tech weapons and gear for at least half of them. I feel dirty. Very, very dirty.
What do i do with them, crucify, burn alive or just hand in for the relation boost?>>250278339Fuck beak things, you're doing a favor to everyone
>>250278682>Fuck beak thingsAlready done, with crossbow bolts. I actually understand when some people rightfully complain that the crossbows are somewhat OP in Kenshi, but when it comes to the Murder Giraffes? A natural exception.
>>250278917Crucify them all on a hill facing Deadcat.
>>250279595care to fill me in on Deadcat? I dont know shit about them
>>250279905Bunch of dudes travelled north to go fishing and plant greenfruit but found a BBQ party instead because they didn't read any book warning about the cannibals.
>>250280263Then i assume that the "Cannibal Capital" was actually thier capital?

>>250282731Hey, tits ARE spooky! I lost my best friend to a pair of tits back in my high school years!
New Kralia is no more, I granted them the death they sought.
>>250283924That's not even something you can blame the FEATURE COMPLETE on.That shit is just common sandbox relationship system. It'd be impossible to make it any other way.Even dwarf fortress which is made by schizo math geek runs has the problem where you do more +1's than -1's you become their friend again.
How rare are Hive Princes in the lore? I'm not great at telling bugmen apart but it seems like quite a few of the drifters and randos I encounter in pubs are Princes.I guess it kind of makes sense since I remember the character creator saying that drones and warriors rarely survive with their sanity intact after disconnecting from the Hivemind but still.
I sometimes find weapons that are high grade but look completly rustyis it a bug or a feature?
>>250284686define high grade
>>250285275That's a mod. Skellington smiths are only able to make mk 3.
>>250285275mark 5 isn't a thing in the base game, weapon grades only go to 3 before upping tiers. You're running a garbage mod that's causing this.
>>250284347There are ways to stop that from happening though. The "healing factions" mechanic is a value that's somewhat arbitrarily applied, the fact you can be beating on a prisoner, heal them and "leave" hostile relations is just indicative it's not well accounted for. Why not just turn off the effect if "Player is enemy of X"? Why not have it do nothing if relations are below 0? Parallel precedent doesn't mean it literally is impossible to code for.
is there any good cannibals-related mods?

every shop I visited has 2-3x the NPCs, that includes shop owners, there's often just 3 identical dudes with their own shop inventories. Is this common? I guess it's time to import, hope nothing bad happens
So I'm about to finish the last of my hydroponics research and I figure that by this point I'm good to go with setting up a REAL outpost instead of the ramshackle facilities I have now.The only question is where do I pack up and move to? My long term goal is the destruction of the United Cities and the death of Tengu.
I am very tempted to start my current game again but slightly more difficult and with NO infinite supply of everything ever from my own settlements. Help.
>>250285848> I guess it's time to import, hope nothing bad happensYou're gonna get the 4 one
>>250286270but I haven't imported this save everI did fuck with shift+f12 a little though (not sure what I did but I pressed a lot of buttons)
>>250285737Depends, what exactly are you looking for? Lore, gameplay, cosmetics?
>>250286550mods that makes me interact more with them
>>250282642>12 people divided into 2 groups>no Outposts yetIm just going around exploring the lands and growing stronger while slowely gaining allies I meet mainly at bars/hotels. This is my first playthrough so im not rushing anything and kinda just sticking to my own pace, im a little over Day 50 and I mostly spend my time roaming the Border Zone and Shek teritory. The Dust Bandits are starting to get too easy and im looking for the next group to start fucking with. Any suggestions? I wouldnt mind travelling somewhere else but my group is still pretty weak. They're all lingering around 15-30 in all the major combat stats

>>250286752Reactive worlds maybe, don't know of any such mods.The mod scene is kinda slow, people are still learning the FCS and honestly I'm just hoping it will be big enough for a script extender or a 3rd party hack for more maneuverability.
>>250286803>The Dust Bandits are starting to get too easyprove it by taking out the dust king
How much the minor mods for new clothes, weapons, single NPCs and the like slow down the game?
Looking trough the weather code I have a sneaking suspicion that chris wanted to have seasonal weather.Don't know why he didn't go trough with it. Make days go faster and boom, a month later it goes for dust storm to blistering heat and so on.
>>250287476>be me>raid dust king's tower>defeat his forces but for some reason he doesn't have a bounty>haven't researched cells yet>stick him in one of the cells in his own tower>kill or leave everyone else for dead>pack it up and call it a day>bandit demands stop >time passes>bandit demands start again>finally get sick of dealing with them>back to the tower>he's waiting there with a new band of cronies>he says he owes me one for what i did to him>defeat them again>now he has a bounty and i can turn him in>i decide to give him my own brand of justice>drag him to my base and sic my bonedogs on him>incinerate his body now he really is dust
>>250287138Feed Beep to the screechy bois. I swear to god, this never gets old.
>>250288059>seasonal weatherSounds like a premium feature.
>>250288059Is there any other conceivable reason for the short length of in-game "years" if not that? It's the only thing I could ever think of.
>>250288558Animal growth I would guess.
>>250287138I saved ells from a life of running, gave him drink and home and one night he accidentially got caught as a slave. Oh well I thought I'll let him train strenght for while.But nope, slavery is bugged. Instead of having my team die from getting him out I tried again and again until I simply disbanded my good friend ells, the second person I got in my party.
>>250288059some zones even have seasons with different weather types assigned
Will Kenshi® II be good?
>>250288609>>250288558Probably just me jumping to conclusions but the age tag is named "lifespan"Combine that with the bigger than your life idea chris usually throws out for kenshi i'm thinking that originally characters could pass away by age.
>characters can be spawned with robot limbsI'm late to the party, but fuck yeah, time for NPC cripple spawns.
>>250288801I hope so
>>250284347I can, cuz Chris did the genius thing and gave Bo faction importance 5 instead of 0.5.
>>250289070It is kinda weird how an industry so big as robot limbs don't actually show up in game outside of on your characters.I mean yeah it would make getting them trivial but you can make some hoobla up that they are neurally linked to the character or something.
>>250289261Shit that only ever effects the player like that drives me up a wall in games like this. One of the biggest offenders off the top of my head back in the day was Skyrim, in that you were the only fucker on the planet that knew how to smith anything other than normal level weapons, you never find or loot a single goddamn upgraded piece of anything ever, all those grinding stones and talk of famous smiths means nothing, you are the only person ever who can sharpen a sword.
>>250289261there should be lots of western hivers using their economy robo limbs
>>250289520Yeah, at least kenshi did it in a kinda smart way. The bought stuff is always better than the homemade stuff.
>>250290119>The bought stuff is always better than the homemade stuff.Except for armor, crossbows, robotic limbs, food.Basically everything except weapons.
>make fully trained and outfitted cyborg squad to take down bugmaster>have to swim trough spider infested lake at .5mph>get mauled on the shore before I can evenget out of water
>>250231813The process of making a thrall is probably something along the lines of>remove head with good CPU and OS>Put in one of those tiny USB CPUs running space-Ubuntu>Tiny CPU is weak enough the new thrall can't have free will even if it wanted toThe fact the Thrall Masters use skeleton repair beds and other tech to make them suggests theres a bit more to it than just chopping their head off.
Have alot of questions, so justgonna leave those out there, hopefully somebody shares thier thoughts on thisHow would Holy Nation look if instead of the Islamic traditions it would have medieval/industrial European traditions?Would it work? Would it be better? Could it be implemented within the nation over time, or would there need to be a violent civil war in order to shift things around. How would you feel about such nation, would it survive?
>>250291269>Could it be implemented within the nation over time, or would there need to be a violent civil war in order to shift things aroundsince things got harsher under the current phoenix, the next one would be able to change things like that, atleast to some extent.
>>250291269I wouldn't so much call the holy nation islamic as I would just religious in general.Most faiths are quite militant and want to keep women under control due to their habit of ruining everything.As for industrialisation.Not until the skeleton menace is gone I'd say. When you're not fighting robots or ancient war machines, you're gonna be more inclined to look at machines in a positive light.
>>250289070Is that true? When is that happening? Big if true
>>250285950Gut is the best place if you want a natural defence against raids.Settle next to Bast if you want a real challenge.Anywhere around the great desert is really shit, soil sucks.
What's the place with the highest concentration of beak things? I thought all regions would be the samd but it seems Shem it the easiest zone compared to other regions with gutters.
>>250291581Yesterday, as of patch 1.0.22, though according to the notes for the experimental .23 patch, it's a bit wonky at the moment.
time to slam some ass
>>250292006Oh, I didnt even check that, is loading a save fine or should I import?
>>250292006>a bit wonkySpecifically:>fixed all limbs being missing for characters spawned with at least one robot limb
>>250291269>islamicNigga its more early medieval christian leaning than anything. Shit where do you think islam got its stuff from, being angry that they got sand up their asscracks?
>>250292105That seems OP
>>250292106I haven't been at my gaming PC to check, but I think it means that modders can now add robot limbs to NPC spawns, not that Chris seeded the chance himself in the game's default NPC population.Once someone does spend the hour it might take to do so and publish a mod, you'll probably need to import.
>>250290592Quin, the amour king, the robotics shop in BDC...The bought stuff is better than what you make in this game
>>250292474shame he sells mostly weapons and not a lot of armor
>>250292612Amour king sells the best armor in the game tho, making only one NPC sell all the good stuff is kinda lazy
>>250292742Yeah true, was a specialist drifters jacket and some like one masterwork helmet there for me last time.

>>250290862>not using a highly trained amphibious navy seal squad composed of crabs and skelebrosYou had it coming
>>250290862That's what you get for using those gay prosthetics
>>250292474True for weapons as homemade ones are always subpar of the same grade ones you find in the world. Not to mention you can't even craft Meitou ir Edge 3.For amor though Mastercrafted is the same wether it's homemade or not. It doesn't change the stats and at 100 armor smithing you have a 40% chance at creating a mastercrafted armor piece wich is pretty good.
