>>253121586Can she tear a gorillo into two little gorillos ?
Is it possible to give unique squad dialogue to generic characters that you've created yourself?
>>253123604you can probably make unique dialouges appear on all characters but you cant assign them to a particular random one
>>253120267Reminder its very possible to imprison leaders in their own jails. In Tengu's case, he's now an inmate in his very own Vault. Right next to the guy he had interred.
>>253125632This bothers me, I really wanted to create more of a personality for them. Gonna keep trying to find some way to hack around this
>>253126412If someone is in a cage, the AI just assumes the deserve it. I used to enslave the guards when I was escaping Rebirth.
>>253126507I agree with you, but sometimes it doesn't work. Such as interring a trade samurai in a slaver cage.They get let out immediately.
>>253126507The game is full of those kinds of "developer's shortcuts", huh
>>253126632Hey, as long as it works.One man's ugly hack is another's emergent gameplay. Todd Howard can only wish he had guard behaviour this sophisticated.
>>253126590Huh. I wish I knew how it worked.
Why no-one ever sweeps the rooftops? Why they have no doors on the roofs in the first place? The sand must be absolutely everywhere after even the smallest dust-storm, why does no-one care about it?
>>253128715With the amount of sandstorms that happen why would you bother. You live in the sand, fuck in the sand, and will die in the sand.
>>253130126Not entire Kenshi is a desert wasteland desu senpai
>>253128715People are much more worried about dying than overall cleanliness.When was the last time you ever saw anyone here take a bath?They may have toilets, but there are no showers.
>>253132795They bathe in the sand.
>>253132795there are modded bath tubes desu
You can get a southhive recruit vanilla.I have zero recruits mods.
What zone has the best amount of copper in it?
What's even the deal with these hivers?>>253136970Did you use the "let them be enslaved and then release them" trick, or is there another one?
>>253139391Seriously, he's being weird.
>>253138823vain has a lot but idk if it's the best
>>253139000>>253139608You think its immitating the sound of your feet as you walk?they're a footfag
>>253139710Why not? Beak things seem easy enough to deal with.
>>253139608Hivers are all slightly autistic, what did you expect?
>>253140943"idk if it's the best" as in "idk if it has the most"
>>253140485I want to bully him for not having feet
>>253139000he was already enslaved at south slave farmjust bought him and he joinedAlso found 2 P4 skeletons in catun but can't talk to them, they're drifters faction 10ish stats so should be recruitables though.
>>253141261It makes them charming desu
>attacked by skin spiders in Spider Plains while returning from an expedition to Vain>how could this have happened>squad wipe>deploy secondary squad from Clownstead safehouse to rescue survivors>spiders nibbling on downed people>two of them are drifting in an out of consciousness which keeps interrupting the feeding process>most spiders get bored and wander off>doesn't take long for spider reinforcements to arrive>somehow manage to delay the inevitable long enough for second team to get thereSomehow, everyone survived. My second-oldest character was at -95 head health for a while.I probably would have loaded a save, but my last save was after the spider attack started, and the one before was an hour earlier. Probably better this way.Let's see if I can carry everyone to Shark without getting murdered on the way.
>>253146363>Shark without murdererror
>Someone starts humming>Ruka immediately is confused by itShe is a adorable dummy. Anyway, when is it recommend to explore the fog islands? I have 11 guys with stats ranging anywhere from 5 to 30.
>>253146587Hah! Didn't even get attacked on the way!
>>253147372>I have 11 guys with stats ranging anywhere from 5 to 3011 guys is a decent team, but I would still suggest to make sure all of them have 20~30 stats, or else you'll have to find a cheesy strategy to survive the encounter with the blue buggers.
>>253147372The best strat for Fog Islands, I think, is to not even bother with the fogmen. Just have a small team that can outrun them.
>>253147826>>253147983Is the gluger island a good place to grind stars, then? Or should I just go for the dust bandits?
>>253148584dust bandits, then Kral's morons, then swamp hobos. THEN you can have fun in the Fog islands
Is it true that the bigger the body - the bigger are hit boxes?
>>253140485Chris is obviously a footfag, the amount of NPCs without shoes doesn't even make sense.
>>253151272I thought he is a vorefag?
>>253151483Both, he's obviously a complete degenerate. I won't even mention Shek females.
>>253151565these horned fertility goddesses with built-in hip placed handlebars are his best creation
you're walking through mongrel and this guy slaps your scorchwaifus ass.what do you do?
>>253153035press sneak, walk behind, 100% chance to assassinate, pick his dumb ass up and chuckle as the guards ignore me in favor of dealing with the fogmen, drag his out to deathyard, strap him to a pole, move on with my day
New to the game. This run aint going too bad. I'm on the run for terrorism though, can't even remember why. I've been drifting from city to city scavenging along the way, letting my skeleton buddy Stenn sell the stuff in the cities while I wait outside.
Made some new friends along the way. I guess all I'm really looking for is a quiet place I can do some work without the police or FUCKING SKIMMERS harassing me.
>>253153235you forgot the part where your scorchwaifu frees that Shek of a man because unlike (You) - he ain't no little pussy ass bitch nigga
>>253153035Recruit Beep. Send Beep to fight him.
>>253150941I think so, yeah. It registers a hit when the weapon touches the target.
>>253154790So midgets are op in Kenshi? Neat
>>253155125I don't think it works that way. You can still attack blood spiders normally, even if they are complete bastards. And people can't be hit during their dodge animations, even if your weapon has enough reach to still clip them.
>>253155809I think there's a proper hitbox that's dependent on your frame but it's pretty wonky.However midgets are definitelly harder to hit with crossbows.
>want to make a group of thieves >want to make group of cybernetic crossbowmen, like desertpunk skitarii>want to make a local shopkeeper >dont want to start from scratch every time >rp autism wont let me just use the same group
>>253159870How do you trigger this lewd dialogue?
>>253161291have someone with feet in your party and walk into a hive village.
>>253138823The black desert has some 200% efficiency nodes but also poison gas. I think the iron and stone is also 200%I've just started a new game because i had a bug where if i leave the zone where my base is the whole thing disappears except the map marker.Did the slave start and one of my guys has lost both arms, do I ditch him or have the other one break him out and steal him some arms from world's end? I could also load him up with shackles and come back for him once I find a pair of lifter arms
>>253156538so this is why that one anon made an entire team of lolis?
>>253162454Ditch him, unless his stats are decent
>>253162884>>253156538fighting on uneven terrain as a max height character against small opponents is cancer. you'll wiff all of your attacks until you're able to kick.the only benefit to being a big character is using a wide swinging weapon, but even then you're more likely to attack first with small arms and a hunched back.>TL;DR use midget hunchbacks with fast weapons for your solo.
>>253153035Promote him to training dummy after a session with the peeler.
>>253160043just work on making a leader and then recruit as you see fit. im running a trade route on the side, while i go exploring as my main elite. I also have a thief trio that goes around holy city's and steals from nobles.
is there a mod that uncaps all the stats and doesnt require mod training equipment to reach?
>>253165917>Squad of midget, goblin, melanins with ninja blades>Another squad of upright crumblejons with falling suns>Send them against the holy incels>No more prayer days
>>253167973this is too evil m8
>>253168530Not that anon but I made a leather making business from peeling Holy Incels that always raid my base.
I don't think larger bodies bring larger hit boxes. If that was true - I am quite certain the thunderthots would be constantly hurt in their chest area, and almost never anywhere else. As far as I know - during both friendly fire and occasional close range incidents they get hit randomly. It would be very reasonable if larger bodies (regardless the body part) gave them higher chance to get critically hit however.
>>253169283>Shek women wearing prosthetics>This kills the Ok*n!te
>>253167293I think cheat training dummies do this despite discriptionnot sure tho because I have a shitton of other mods installed
>>253153035Mongrel doesn't make sense
>>253148739What the fuck? Karl's chosen are in the 50s, swamp niggers are kn the 30s. Also they use katanas and krals use heavy weapons, they hit like 50 to 60 damage
>>253170368I want whatever you got
>>253169105yea pretty much. i dont have any of the chest expansion mods but from my vanilla experience i can confirm that a tall martial artist cannot defeat a short hunchback, unless they have 14 martial arts, and are on even ground. the hunchback however has an increased palm strike range and the whole hit box covers their entire chest. i still have to test if a taller hunchback has a better range, but if you've fought gorrillo bandits, you know that shorty will take your legs before anything else.there's probably a perfect ratio that can be found to make the ultimate solo. just depends on what you're maining in terms of weapons.
>>253170946Why don't they just have farms? The land is fertile enough.
>>253171564What would happen if someone set up a base there? Just non-stop fogmen attacks?
>>253173808More likely, a Holy Nation missionary team and three different bandit groups are all going to fight through the fogmen just to raid your shack.Should be interesting, either way.
>>253171564water is 10
>>253173808pretty much, cannibals are less frequent but usually show up in low numbers; same with bandits. you could also be unlucky and setup on one of the fogs patrol routes and get a constant supply of "stick slacks" to train on.eventually you can just leech off mongrel by selling the heads they drop, and start a metal industry almost anywhere. would recommend for small groups of dedicated fighters
>>253174472At that precise spot, yeah. It's 110 in most of the region.
As someone who built a base there, its not as often as you think. HN raids me more.
>>253175795What's a good area? I found a nice spot, but it's too close to Mongrel.
>>253175883This the spot I made a base in. Spacious, has both iron and copper and a fair distance to Mongrel.
I've been playing a pirated, outdated copy with some mods, and now I've bought the game. How do I transfer the save? Just copy and paste into the right folder?
Reminder:Snek > Shek
So with the recruitable prisoners mod:> low level enemies ready to join immediately> higher level ones not so eager (paladins)A ~50skill bloodraider wanted to join immediately for the 20k cats. Made me feel foolish for buying so many >25skill Manhunters for the same price. Having an issue with a skeleton though. Came across a roaming skeleton (drifters) that got knocked out by pack of wild bonedogs. Picked him up and sent a carrier to deliver him back to base. He's in a jail cell and repaired... but refuses to give dialog after 5 ingame days. His stats are basic, but I am up to my neck in big fat shek tats and just want more skeletons.What's the best way of getting him to an recruitable state?
>>253182120did you strip him of weapons and armor?
>>253183903Yeah, he's naked. He was stripped while unconscious though. Should I try giving him weapon/armor, walking out of the building, going back in, taking away to maybe reset it?
>>253184063try kicking his ass for a while, or leave him for several days.
>>253184348Alrighty, will doAlso, do steam mods downloaded from steamworkshopdownloader.io need any special treatment to get working beyond dumping into a /mods/modname/ folder?
>>253184865no, just dump them in there
>>253182120Man, the mod really makes me not want to level recruits, it feels so redundant when you can pay 20k cats, or pass complicated engrish dialogue checks instead of grinding for 40ish hours. I like it, but I hate it, because with unique recruits you're forced to level them up normally
>>253186453About leveling normally, I want to make one of those trainign rings with captured bandits, does anyone have a screenshot or video showing the layout of it? I'm afraid if I build one in my base everyone will run to the fighting pit and ruin everything trying to help the trainee.
Is bard and Griffin the only unique recruits found in holy nation land?
Also, what characters have good lore dialogue?
>>253188004burn is bae, but beep and agnu have dank chemistry.
On the long march
the fucking herd of hobos
>>253181143But there are no Sneks in game. Nothing is sexier than 300 pounds of pure steel.
>>253168869Absolute heresy, this is why I enjoy purging shitskins and bringing glory to okran
>>253186453Yeaaah, I know what you mean. Visited this one slave trading post and some lady was complaining about how her mute bug pet was worthless. Bought him out of pity, despite having stats being all 11 and being a soldier drone. I'll just make him a guard in the base or something.
>>253186971If you build walls around it with a gate nobody will try to unlock the gate to get in.
>>253148584If you got some spare hands and armor it's an excellent place to train toughness and defense.
>>253191647Made with 100% Okranite holy leather. The sanctified flesh in fact contributes to this armor's grade.
>>253120267can someone give me some armor mods to cover this crime against orkan???
>>253195175Unironically, cannibal armor looks great on skellies. Anyone else wearing it will look like perverts.
>>253184348UPDATE on trying to recruit that skeleton.Ended up importing my save. There was another mod I wanted to try. Forgot that it sorta wipes NPCs stuck in cages. So I lost that skeleton, but added in one from Nexus that adds a bit more race variety to the world. Saw a skeleton civilian and tried to fight him behind closed doors to recruit him. It wasn't working. Couldn't get the options to change from [Kidnap] to [Pick up]. Then tried to pull a griefing tactic. Set main guy to Block and waited till a guard was near. Attack'd the skeleton, which caused him to start punching me while blocking. The guards all rushed in and beat him; placing a 500 bounty and allowing me to [Pick up].There was just one problem though:All of a sudden, all empire peasants started attacking the guards. Then the nomads started attacking the guards; followed by manhunters, bounty hunters, and slave traders. The entire city spiraled into a circus of blood and body parts as my team just looked in horror. All this for one fucking skeleton. Goddamn.
>>253176885i built in the same spot, you can wall off that entire plateau with 3 short sections of wall in every corner but the north east
Where's a good place to build my outpost on the southern end of the map? Im at the border between Bonefields and Fishman Island but im worried fishmen will kick my ass
>start game for the first time with the intention of running a solo bounty hunter for the United Cities>end up just skinning whatever animals end up getting killed by town guards and making bank>never get strong enough to fight anybody>dont even know where bandits are anywaywhatever
>>253200807>travel between cities>fight weak opponents lost from their group>occasionally get your ass kicked>pick up and sell unconscious enemies with bounties>eventually buy better gear>take on Dust Boss
>>253200961Well I bought this game like yesterdayWhat's the ideal bounty hunter loadout if I like kiting with crossbows?
>>253201718You're still early-on in the game I imagine so id recommend just finding the best quality Toothpick you can get your hands on, then in terms of armor/clothing just keep an eye on the stat buffs/debuffs.
>>253201718Everything that's keeps you weightless for maximum running speed.So light armor or clothing unless you have some strength.Some light armor and hats also gives you bonus to crossbow or perception so look out for those.
>>253200807>soloYou absolute madman.At bare minimum you should have two guys, so that one can bandage the other if he's in a coma.Use the power of friendship.
>>253182120>but I am up to my neck in big fat shek tatsSounds like you need even more big fat shek tats, buddy
>>253187378>>253188004yes and almost none of them. Miu is a funny girl in the swamp though. Rane the Giant and Griffin have a few lines to exchange iirc.
>>253195928How fragile our civilization can be. Truly Okranism got it right - we cannot allow skeletons in our cities.
The grind in this game is kinda ridiculous if you're playing normally. Skill exp not bleeding into stats seems odd to me
>253117592Well i guess i just got an ideaI started with 9 shek girls (one blue one was "main" and 8 black ones are my harem), so i guess eventually i want to make outpost and remove kebab (the holy nation). Only reqruit female sheks into my fighting party, then i guess hive drones and blacks for farming/production and white people to research shit and someone for turrets. And then just roll around the map seeing how op i can get and what happens if i wipe everything out. But yea still not sure how do i switch from "walk around picking up trash pickles" to "actually doing shit". Right now im in coast region and have mod installed that adds pirates to it, but its pretty shit desu, revers reck my ass so i jsut not sure what to do. Probably go to desert again since it's an easy location to be in.
>>253213176>>253117592since im retarded
>>253176885I'm looking at this little valley here. The valley itself is good farmland, and there's iron and copper nodes on the rim. Most of it isn't good for stone, but there's one spot that will work.The mountains aren't a perfect defense, but I think I can block off the smaller gaps with watchtowers, and then either build a wall around the valley, or build a fortified gate inside the valley. Having the walls around the gate be concave would be good for crossbow emplacements.It's not a lot of space, but I think I can build compact. I don't want so much area it takes actual time to walk across.
>>253188004For lore? Random skeleton.For a race that supposedly resets their brains regularly, they seem to know a lot about the past.
Since we were talking about how hitboxes work yesterday, I decided to test it.These abominations have all stats at 0 (except athletics, since that keeps increasing by just running) and has different bodyparts enlarged.I'm going to make them fight with some bandits then reload and do it again a couple of times and see whether there are body parts that receive more damage.
>>253219545I ship Tits McGee, Control and Healslut. Lesbian love-triangle.
>>253219545>choose your fighter
>>253201718What others said + longsword/topper. Or even better iron club to prevent bounty targets from bleeding.
Here's the results of the first round. Numbers at their name means the order they fell unconscious.I'm not going to make images like this for the other rounds because it's a fucking chore.I'll just make a spreadsheet or something.
>>253221868In my medical opinion the size of the body parts has no meaning because Chris didn't bother to properly program damage in this Feature Complete of a game
Can we mod well yet?
>>253194284Hi Satan. Didn't know you like Kenshi.
>>253222809No. Nobody even fully understands the FCS yet
>>253208826>Steam\steamapps\common\Kenshi\data\editorOpen the files and do some magic with the numbers
>>253222625Most likely. However people say that midgets are often harder to hit. I also had a tittymonster amazon that seemed to take more hits to the chest and animals take more damage to the front legs if attacked from the front. It seemed like there are some changes the hitbox, but so far all the data seems to be random.
Imagine dying to a one-armed holy incel man and he says this as you fall to the ground unconscious
>>253223638Fuck, here's an idea: kidnap holy warriors, peel off their limbs, replace with pogo sticks, release in holy territory.What will ever hapen to them
>>253223586If the titty monsters were true damage magnets - I'd notice it quite a while ago. In fact - I was secretly hoping it would be the case, since that would mean that they all have two massive weak spots hanging on their bodies. But so far I am not convinced it is real.
>>253224267They are modded though. Hitbox adjustments to body size may not work with them
>>253224143the holy nation doesn't attack friendlies with boner limbs.
>>253226394So in other words, it's technically possible to take every existing paladin squad, peel every single one of them, and release them back after giving them robot limbs? And then every HN squad in existence would be a skeleton squad
the OST from 'Conan The Barbarian' movie fits Kenshi surprisingly well
>>253226919well no because those squads would despawn and respawn with full limbs. They might say they've met you but they will have mysteriously regrown their limbs
>>253227208>mysteriouslythe power of Okran is LIMITLESS
>>253216508Best of luck to you. Fog islands is pretty bad, but its very rewarding once you can demolish the foggers easily.>>253222924It gets lonely on the long roads...>>253223638Tried that before. Committed suicide. Or I think so considering he was dead in his cell when I looked back after putting on a skelly limb.
>>253227064The OST from Tenchu works well when you're sneaking around.
>>253228038Sneaking is not manly. Solo-ing your game as 7 feet tall, mostly naked muscle-beast of a man with long hair and funny accent is the kino way to play Kenshi
>>253228865I did try a playthrough as a mute Guts. And despite not being able to talk to people, he somehow got followers.
>>253229229Did he charm them with his giant sword?
>>253229529That and pic related is what always ends up happening to those that fought him.
>>253221868I stopped after 5 rounds instead of my planned 10, because it's seems to be pretty random.Even the height which people say matters doesn't give the expected results (like characters with long legs getting hit in the legs more.)Maybe I just don't have enough data, but I'm lazy so someone else can continue if they want to.
Does this wall look okay?
>>253229912(You) did your part, anon. Don't force yourself.
>>253230421>Vanilla wallit looks boring desu senpai
My party of 11 is in the 40's-50s' now. What should I train on?Most bandit trash is barely giving me XP
>>253230547I was thinking more in terms of functionality as a defensive structure, but what wall mods would your recommend?
>>253230421I would use the editor to fill in the holes at both ends just in case, but otherwise looks good. Don't forget the ramps.
>>253230421>hit confirm>game crashesOkay.
>>253231256Japanese castle walls, look very clean and comfy.
So for a squad of ranged bugs that all have90+ athletics~40 crossbow40-42 dex70+ precisionWould playing run and shoot with leviathans be a worthwhile investment of time, or is it better to just keep them attuned with the melee fighters they'll be with?Also, so what determines if an opponent is stronger or weaker than you for the Melee attack/defense scaling? If I power-leveled strength on characters by hauling copper, would a 90+ Str stat (compared to >10 in other stats) deteriorate exp received from mobs in their 20's, such as Outlaw Swordsmen?
>>253230864Named bandit clans like Band of Bones, go tech hunting, piss of one of the bigger factions.
Who THE FUCK DID THIS?https://kenshi.fandom.com/wiki/Black_Dragon_Genin
I tried to get hype for this game but it looks so bad. Why.Is PostApoc RPG a better alternative if I want something to scratch the isometric, post-apoc, rpg itch?
>>253234013namefag, are you asking us or yourself?
>>253234325>I had it on for a meme reply two days ago>Didn't realise I was still using it>I have been purposefully trained wrong>As a joke
>>253233804It's a wiki, you can TELL who did this.Most recently it was 188.8.131.52, and before that, Smilein.
>>253234473A joke indeed
Where do I find the file that has all the stat caps. I want to change all of them to 1K cap
>>253233804the fuck are you on about?they literaly say that ingame
>>253225162They may not indeed. Still, at least it gave /keng/ something to talk about. Better than nothing.
>>253236148No matter where I make a base, they always scramble from their tower to attack me
>>253236975Attack them first. Is there a mod for taking over enemy sites?
>>253237176Im way outnumbered. I have 3 people, a human, a shekelstein, and a liberty prime. The human is better in combat than the shek. Thats how fucked my squad is.
>>253236975Its even funnier when they decide to raid a literal hellhole and get themselves crippled/killed.The Survivors are then sold to slavers.
>>253237337When you get your guys levels to that of Mad Cat-lon's, numbers mean shit. Hell, 3 of Armor King's thralls, after being given proper cybernetics, armor and weapons, can effectively decimate the entirety of Blister Hill.
Lads, Berserker Country is literal hell.Constant Berserkers fighting Screeching Bandits vs Cannibals Vs me. I also got the screeching bandit and cannibal expanded mod, so theyre way tougher and scarier.Griffin almost lost a leg.
>>253233804nice shitposting is still shitposting
wich is the best all around weapon for my explorers?i want to use katanas n' shiet but i don't really like -30% armor penetrationso far i've been using short cleavers
>>253239238There's always polearms and naginatas. They come with armor pen and a bonus against animals. Though if you want a basic weapon that works indoors with armor pen, definitely go for combat cleavers.Though your short cleavers work too.
>>253239238what the fuck are you doing

So let's say I got tired of paying off the Traders Guild to keep a base in their area and did their membership. How do I passively raise Anti-slaver's reputation back up without pissing Traders and UC off? Bring some anti-slaver troops to a UC town, let them fight the guards, heal&bed rest them in a closed building, and rinse/repeat?
Okranites, move along. Nothing to see here.

HeyJust bought the gameI don't know what I'm doingHive are okay lads, can I just hire Hivers?
>>253246616You gotta find jobless deadbeats in bars to hire. Sometimes they will be hivers.Recruit someone ASAP so that if one guy gets knocked into a coma, the other can bandage their wounds. Also buy a first aid kit if you didn't start with one.Your first objective will probably be to make some money. To do this you can:>mine copper>kite bandits into a town and steal all their gear after the guards beat them up>buy goods where they are cheap and sell them for profit elsewhere>steal
>>253247368Oh thank you for the info.I'm using the squad start, my main lad is a Prince, two Soldiers and a Worker. I think you're onto something, is playing as "Merchants" a viable tactic? Just walking about trading?
>>253243541What new players do not realize is that skeletons are in fact the easiest to manage.>No starvation>Unaffected by environmental hazards>Can build bases in literal hellholes and thrive>Can get back up and fight unimpeded when fully repaired vs a fleshie who needs recovery time>All defects are fixed by the repair bed>So badass that even when losing a limb, they can easily replace it and becomes part of their body. Unlike organics who need to maintain both organic and metallic aspects.And that's not getting into skellies being the best choices in making an AFK base.
>>253247905Yeah, its viable. Every city has a different price mark up for their items, so you can buy something for cheap in one town and sell it at a higher price in another.You'll have to be careful with bandits though. At the start of the game pretty much everyone can kill you. However you can hire mercenaries to protect you until you train your own caravan guards.
>>253248910Very fucking cool!Thanks for the tips mate, I'll make the Hive proud.
>>253247905Sure, but it's hard right at the start unless you literally follow a guide. You need to know the world. What to buy and sell where, what the local bandit groups are like, whether the local government considers you an abomination onto God.If your party is all hivers, you're gonna have a bad time crossing Holy Nation territory.Also, if you're ALL hivers, you can't trade with the hives either, since you've been exiled. They won't attack you on sight, but you'll need some other race to actually talk to them.
>>253248580They're a doomed race, lore-wise. You can't make more skeletons. They're complete chadbots, though.
>>253249597Sure, that's what the skeletons say. They also say they "don't know" how the Ancients died.
>>253249597Considering most of the 1st empire tech is literally burnt to cinders, that's probably the case. But there's also the possibility that they're just refusing to manufacture more. Considering that most skellies are either bored out of their mind or have gone nuts. Cat-Lon being the biggest example going crazy after trying his darnest to get chummy with humans.I'm leaning towards the latter as most skellies are in a state of mental limbo with no purpose. And would rather not make more considering what awaits the average skeleton in this landmass.
>>253246616Do not mine copper. Do anything but that. Make your game interesting.
Do tell me your favorite spooky-scary places. Just the names.
>>253257060It would be spooky if my crossbow harlots were still weak. They are not by now.>>253257359I am not a burger. Is that place really so spooky?
>>253258012Its a bright and beautiful city marred by hordes of homeless people, drugs and feces as well as an uncaring elite. So its pretty much the UC.Also.>Not ripping through Okranites with paladin crosses.
Should I get a character, name him allah, and only arm him with the suicide blade
>>253258421>"Not ripping through Okranites with paladin crosses"silly Okranites are not for killing, but rather for sexual slavery they aren't going to enjoy for too long given the limitations of their bodies
>>253259027>you will never be kidnapped from your farm in Okran's pride only to wake up tied to that bed>a schorchwaifu tittymonster will never slam open the door and scream "I'm gonna break your dick off"why even live

>>253259027these fine ladies have dicks, right?
>>253259258Don't forget the copious amount of booze, food and drugs to keep the fun going as long as the cultists want. After tenth of so orgasm in a row - their poor victim may ask for mercy. After twentieth or so orgasm in a row - the poor man would be barely able to speak coherently. Once he stops breathing at all - his battered and abused body will be used for its last, less fun but still important ritual.>>253259309Wasting men like that is a crime against nature itself.

I nabbed one of the Holy Nation footsoldiers from the battlefield in Bast, but I can't seem to sell him into slavery. Is it because he's in a coma? Can I sell him after he wakes up?
>>253265445Oh, or is it because he isn't hostile to me?I realized after I put him in one of the free outdoor beds that grabbing him again would be kidnapping.I've sold cannibals before with no issue, so that might be it.
>>253265717who in their right mind would buy cannibals ?!
>>253265797Hey, a slave is a slave. Just keep them chained up and make sure they don't chew on the other slaves.The tribal tattoos also make them very easy to identify if they run away.
I love hivers.
>>253267802>>253267997I sell! You buy! You buy!
>>253268348They ain't selling much anything now. The hive caravan somehow managed to pick a fight with the Stoat samurai police.
>>253265797Literally every slaver. It would be a very profitable venture if the cannibal villages weren't too far. On that note, you can even sell the fishmen.
>>253268963The hivers started fights in Shektown a few times in my current game. I do not understand how it can happen.
>>253269287Those things can't even talk! And they smell like rotting fish shit!Why, Chris? Why?!
>>253269435That's pretty fucking racist, anon. The slavers aren't bigots.
One day we will see him again
>character model is wet after swimmingHow can the game engine have this kind of details, and still lack a generic "use item" interface?
Do targets need to be alive to claim bounties or can you just let them bleed out and slap a corpse on the desk of the police chief?

In the ongoing war against the Manhunters, Slavetraders, and Samurai Gate Guards; I've stumbled across another body in the piles surrounding Sho-Battai's entrance. This time, it was a Samurai Gate Sergeant. Strangely, it was marked as SLAVE. Somehow, enough Manhunters knocked her down and shackled her before the other Samurai slaughtered them. Her stats are in the early 60's. Tempted to put her in one of my own cages and recruit (mod). Though, none of my guys are even near that yet. If she was a shek, there'd be no question. Sadly, another Scorchlander. I've got enough of them. I'm going to unlock her, free her of the slave status, and release her back into the wild. Hopefully she'll go back to playing "beat the skimmer" with her friends.
>>253278235Manhunters will enslave their allies. Which is why I kill them on sight.
>>253279341No kidding! Didn't know.
>leaving bark, guards do a routine search>those fucks plant drugs on me>ask for a 2000c "fine" to let me go>tell guard to go fuck his own naginata>guards beat me to a pulp>instead of enslaving me the gate sergeant just holds meWell this is a bit awkward.
Why is the skill grind in this game so abysmal, I can't fight shit that isn't a starving, one-armed child
>>253281441That's one of my first memories of Kenshi. Samurai gate guard carrying around a dead body for eternity. At some point, the body glitched and started standing straight with the head turned backwards. Imagine being a starving vagrant and charging a city gate to see this.
>>253281441Don't worry anon. Once you understand how to become more strong and survive, you'll be the ones putting them down. And it never stops being satisfying.
rate my new archer
>>253287020yooo, is that a noble toaster head?
>>253287175Yup. You can make one your own with the robot mod. Or recruit one with a recruit mod.If you're looking for quality Screamers, the workshop near crabtown has really strong ones that rivals the screamer units in Ashlands as well as the Skin bandits.
Finally decided to launch a crusade for the north, and to destroy most of the cannibal tribes. The march was long, but there will be blood.
Where do I grind out attack damage and weapon proficiency? I'm on day 24 and have 16 Melee Attack and 17 Crossbow Attack, kiting groups of enemies with a Ranger only gets so effective when they're faster than you and/or you run out of bolts.
just went to the catun scrap master shop. they insulted my blade. little do they know its one of their model 3s
>>253287745Pick a fight with dust bandits, lose, heal up and repeat until you get stronger.
The only language we'll speak to the cannibals is brutality.
>>253259027>those namesFinally, a fellow man on boat culture
>>253290089>>253290830As someone who tried to get a cannibal to talk, I can confirm this.
>>253291348Did they screm while getting potatoed?
>>253291457Nope. Not a peep.
>>253291489Huh. I bet he wishes he could eat his now peeled off hotdog stick limbs
>>253269314They're programmed to steal things from shop sometimes.
You know I almost guarantee that the cannibal hunters are intentionally being ineffective so they can earn big dosh from their schtick.
>>253292202This may as well be true. Because if you think about it, any sufficiently armed military force can genocide the cannibals. Reason they don't is because they become irrelevant afterwards.In fact, if you want them to go extinct, one just needs to convince the nobles that making leather out of cannibal flesh is the best thing ever.

>>253200807>>end up just skinning whatever animals end up getting killed by town guards and making bankI'm still waiting for the devs to make it so that corpses have an "Ownership" value to whoever killed them/whatever faction the corpse is from.That way trying to steal someone else's game will make them agressive towards you and trying to steal from dead guards will make the Faction they belonged to angry torwards you as well.
>>253300328i failed to protect her, that's why i cut off my limbs and replaced them with skeletal onesto remind myself of my failiure...and to not break my hands every time i train with my new master Tinfist

>>253314559I love these kind of stories. Anyone has more?
Holy shit I tried to fight Phoenix and he pretty much wiped my wholy party by himself, I thought getting past his guards was the tough part but he's way stronger than all of them.
How the fuck does this thing require power when theres a wind generator right next to it?
Anyone examined weapons in detail? I made the switch recently from my uniform being polearm/short cleaver to combat cleaver/short cleaver and people seem way more sluggish. Not just damage (skill-related of course) but on blocking and swinging too. Should I just return to polearms and drop the sidearm all together?
>>253317631yeah that's why he's like the leader and stuff. he has 20 more combat stats than the average high paladin and 10 more than an inquisitor, let alone, all his gear is masterwork + the meitou cross

WHY THE FUCK IS THE WIKI SO BAREBONESTHIS GAME HAS BEEN A THING FOR 12 YEARS GODDAMMIT
>>253323076A functional Wiki is a luxury feature
>>253323076Well, why aren't you adding to it?That's why.
>>253323076Because it's hosted at fandom.com. Unless you have scriptblock/umatrix declining all the bullshit in the background, your browser will lag to death trying to load all the discord/advertising/shit to retrieve 5 paragraphs of text information. Literal 2003 wall-of-text Gamefags would be a better experience.
>>253323715Theres a reason I'm on the wiki in the first place anon
>>253323076Because game is barebones.No, really.
>>253316169About Cat being useless nigger getting his ass enslaved while mining his own business near Squinn. Had to constantly send big boys to save him.

Is there a fun way to play this game that isn't a drawn out game of 9 to 5 stat grinding?I really like the concept of this game but I spent an hour trying to run copper to get my strength and athletics up and I got nabbed by bandits and diedIs there a more engaging way to go about this?
>>253330294The super-shortcut version is to make a character via FCS and make the start that you want so you can skip the painful early grind and skip right ahead into fighting. See youtube for tutorials. For a non-FCS version, get into crossbows as well as slave hunting because said activity will get you into fights as well as increasing strength and athletic. Also, if your guy gets enslaved... its not a bad deal as no starvation means strength, thievery and athletics will get leveled up if you set your enslaved guy right.
Something happened that spooked me the other day. Started a wanderer run and took a looooong journey south down to Squin. I got there, the entire fucking place is empty. No guards, no civilians, no sign of a fight. It's like the whole town's population vanished at once. I check the nearby waystation and the exile camp, same story. No bullshit twist here, genuinely don't know what happened. Is it a bug? Did they get wiped out somehow?
>>253332839Its a bug. It tends to occur when you start a new game right after you load a game in the same session.Import to fix or loot everything and then import to fix.
>>253170368>>253171005It's cheat training dummies that does that yeah, you can have characters with ridiculous proportions from too much strength lol.
>>253330294>I got nabbed by bandits and diedHow does that even happen? What bandits were they, and how many people was your squad?
>>253320482I am eagerly waiting for it
If your forces are uniformed, what weapons do you issue them? And why is the most aesthetic choice the heavy polearm?
>>253340091I've always gone for a "ragtag bunch of misfits" approach, using every weapon type including unarmed.
>>253341349Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we have our second truly must-have mod now
>>253341650What's the first?
>>253344523Compressed textures of course
>>253341650Not yet. It breaks outpost buildings.
>>253337165a pack of eight hungry boys, maybe?I shoudn't say nabbed cause they didn't kidnap me. They just broke my legs and left me to die. I was starting as a lone wanderer
>>253349081>loneYeah, that'd be your problem. Going solo in this game is deadly. If you have just two guys, it's highly likely that one of them will be conscious enough to bandage the othe. You can just pick fights, lose them, and get stronger that way.
>>253344174You know, I think it might actually have been the skeletons that scrapped the Behemoths. Whoever did it obviously won whatever war they were used in. Sure, the skeletons say it was humans, but they don't mention who the humans were fighting, and they're obviously hiding some terrible things about the past.Maybe the robot uprising that destroyed the First Empire used these guys. Maybe it was Cat-Lon who gave the order to march them into a volcano, or whatever it was.
>>253341349So it removes asians from the game?
Alright so current I’m running a cowboy-themed solo bounty hunter and I’m using a crossbow and a jitte on backup and I’m in the low 20s for Melee Attack and Crossbow skills. My goal is to land all the high-tier bounties on all the faction leaders, I’ve already got Gutterhead of the Scavengers faction. Its becoming apparent I’m gonna need to rustle up a posse though, level grinding has been slow going.
>>253352381Yeah that's just how it is. Get a partner or two, because solo is for max autism only

>>253293760pretty fun as a silly challenging adventure game. I honestly think that the unfinishedness about the game makes it possible to mod it into your perfect game. But, I don't name my peeps after my fleet because I would rather keep them as cute girls instead of dismembered nig nogs

So if I play a skeleboy can I trade out his limbs for different prosthetics? Or are those just reserved for people with missing limbs?
>>253365146Sadly no, you'd still have to get their limbs chopped off for that to happen, which is harder to do than with organics (not still possible).
>>253365146Just get a peeler and stand near it for a little bit.

Alright anons, I just acquired a very fine prosthetic limb and now I need to lose the right one so that I can sit a little closer to the Omnissiah. What's the best way to get my right arm removed in a predictable manner?
>>253366265only predicatable way to remove limbs is peeler but it removes all at oncebest random chance would probably be security spiders, cover your torso and head to avoid death
>>253356975That's never stopped a truly dedicated modder, but maybe no one here is a truly dedicated modder.Maybe those "engine improvements" in Kenshi 2 will include better modding support. It could happen, right?
>>253366562>no mod that lets you pay a plastic surgeon to amputate your limbs
>>253369487still holy, unlike you skelenigger lover.
A single team of shek warriors tried to take Bad Teeth. Quite a number of male okranites became cripples or died that night. And it would be all fine and dandy if a few crossbowthots didn't try to ninja-heal a few of the downed, for medical training. It didn't end as they predicted.

Is Fishman Island really a good place to start an outpost or am I being tricked? I have a group of 19 ranging from 20-40 in stats and im looking for a good place to start the settlement grind
Wheres the best place to settle if I just want to survive off meat? South wetlands for the turtles?
>>253380664Flats Lagoon due to easy proximity to boneyards and the fact that doggos commit seppuku there. Another place would be any of the United Cities deserts due to the consistent skimmer attacks. Just hang around the city, stay away from the Nobles and you'll do just fine.
my squad went into combat mode and I found this guy limping over with evil intent
Just started a new campaign after five months, or what feels like it, of not playing Aspergers Sand Samurai Simulator. After waking up in the middle of town, go to the bar, grab some food and a bandage if things get dicey, but I doubt it will come to that. Proceed to be attacked by malnourished economic migrants while digging up ores on the edge of town. Run through the gates and into the bar where a fight breaks out, many are killed. Exit the bar unscathed, only to be attacked by another band of skinnies, this time beaten to a bloody pulp while the rest of the town lies in front of the bar. Limp over to an unoccupied bed with my body in tatters. I cannot rest long, because tomorrow I'll have to work again, so I can afford to eat rice, like a good Chinaman.
So I'm pretty new to the game. How much can you abuse mercenaries? Are there any negatives to just leaving them to die or be eaten by beak things? Will they not respawn or hear about a sketchy group that hires mercs to go on suicide missions? They're so cheap and some are really good, especially to help clear out labs and libraries. I can't help but want to use them as fodder. I just took some to get eaten by beak things and spiders, I hired 4 different groups and none survived. Not entirely my fault because they rush beak things and I have no control over their tactics. Any thoughts on this strat?
>>253381749Good luck. Its a long process on becoming a badass that tears the world apart. Also, they really should fix the entire invisible breast wrap thing with the JRPG race.
>>253381749is that really the best nude mod? just draw nipples on skin colored bandages. ahahhaon kenshi related topic is it normal for cleanser units to vanish upon death? every time ive killed one its ragdolled straight up into the stratosphere never to return. at first i figured haha funny bug but by the 5th one im wondering if its intentional. havent been able to loot any.
>>253382716You can start a consistent war within major factions by siccing mercenaries at them. After the job, that faction will recognize the mercenary guild to be hostile and fighting will consistently break out. Did it with the HN and UC.Be warned that it does thin out Mercs over time. Also if you plan on looting them, make sure none of them are conscious when you do it.
>>253382908What does thinning them out mean? If you leave a group to die, you won't find them at that bar again? Or were you just referring to the warring faction stuff?
>>253382873Its the JRPG race mod that causes a conflict with the tits mod, I believe. I only installed the former because most of the face mods that I've seen are kind of lackluster, so I just turned the weeb slider down a bit to something normal (relatively speaking).
>>253380664Catun city. The plain around it is absolutely swarming with giraffes, and the samurai guard are constantly slaughtering them by the dozens.
Has anyone had any trouble with the Resource Storage 1000 limit mod causing major pathfinding issues? Two of my haulers were unable to figure out how to get copper from outside a towns gate back to the building storage container... despite doing this for 80 laboring levels. Others are unable to find the Food Storage container now, despite it being there since I moved in 50+ hrs ago. Ctrl Shift F11 and Importing game twice didn't solve it. Pathfinding issues just started after adding the mod.
>>253383251You'll find it harder and harder to find mercs in the territories they're hostile with. Such as the Hound lookalikes in HN cities if you got them to fight each other.
they tried to take my thicc tick so they got a gift
what limb dismemberment level do you all play at?
>>253384895Frequent.Nothing like seeing those limbs fly away.
>>253384895Rarely. So when dismemberment does occur, its significant. Especially when you're the one causing it.
>>253384895frequent, because i cant get rid of pathetic hiver limbs fast enough.
>>253377721They stick way out of the ground when you try to place them.
>>253391663have you tried changing height and slope level using the appropriate commands?
>>253391897Of course. The mod's dev also notes that he needs to fix it.
What raids can I expect in Shem/Swamp border?
damn it. her abs were just starting to come in.
>>253347335The author posted a comment five hours ago saying he's fixed it, but the mod description hasn't been updated, so maybe it's not completely fixed.
>>253384895Rarely seems best for me.

is there any mod manager for kenshi?one of my mods is consistently crashing my game every time I go east from hub and IDK if it's some mod conflict or something else
>>253407469Try it out yourself you stupid bitch.This map would suggest mostly dust bandits, though I'd also expect swamp ninjas, red sabers and those metal-hat cunts at the very least.
>>253120267So I've made a squad, bought a house in Squib and stated researching. Maybe it's cuz I'm all skeleton so the day to day motivation of finding food isn't there but I'm just not sure what to do. I just bait bad guys into guards and loot them. I figure I want to research prison cages to train on live bandits but once I'm done doing that what should I do?
>>253393797Swamp Ninjas, Red Sabres, Dust Bandits, Band of Bones, Slavers, Blood Spiders, and Hounds if you dont pay them taxes.
>>253409062mod manager is a luxury feature
My outpost suddenly disappeared. All the buildings are there, but they aren't considered part of the same town anymore so nothing has power.
>>253407435Is selling bandits to slavers evil?
>>253411872It's lawful neutral\good
>>253411872No, but its extremely boring and tedious.
>>253411872Depends on the bandit. Starving bandits is evil. Skin bandits is questionable due to their mental illness, dust bandits deserve it.
>>253412623>Starving bandits is evilNo! Stop bullying starvers! They are people too.t.allied with starving bandits

Fetchit has managed to e̶n̶s̶l̶a̶v̶e̶ encourage some nomads to join his cause.He is currently in mongrel trying to make money off of fog princes to get some money for armour and bolts.Hes almost died about 6 times to the fogman.Fetchit is also a retard who forgets to attach images.Good job Fetchit!
>>253415131FETCHIT WHAT KIND OF BOLT ARE YOU USING
>>253411872From a utilitarian point of view, it's probably good. The bandit is forced to stop practicing banditry, and made to work for the betterment of society, in some godforsaken mine somewhere. Sure, the "society" he benefits is mostly the nobility, but he's certainly doing less damage there than he was robbing people.Of course, utilitarianism is just a sophisticated tool for convincing yourself it's okay to do evil. Slavery is WRONG, and you shouldn't do it.>>253413750How do you even ally with starving bandits? Just beat them up by the hundreds and bandage them?
>>253415259I shall call your guy ''The Long Noodle''
>>253414985I wish they randomly asked to join if you are obviously stronger. Giving them some food is much better deal than paying 3000 for someone with literally zero skills.
>>253415131The dustcoat-and-short-pants combo makes him look like a flasher.>>253415259>bolts (loooooongs)
>>253415259It looks like facepaint guy has a quiver.
>>253415686Shit all they'd have to do is ask and I'd give them a steady job at the farm and all the chewsticks they could eat.
>>253415459Selling hungry hobos to the UC is okay. Don't sell the poor fucks to the HN however. Slaving your ass to some noble is unfair. At least they won't shout religious nonsense in your ears as you do it.
>>253416642Maybe you should stop being a devil-worshiping rapist.
Most aesthetic weapon? Best all-rounder? Worst all-rounder?
>>253417680How else one could kill time on the wonderful continent-island of Kenshi? Besides, the stupid holy men are asking for it anyway.
>>253418154The Oldworld bows are sexy as hell, and very powerful.
>>253418154Combat cleaver is pretty good all around, slightly less damage to animals but with good armor pen and extra damage to robots. I like to use a mix of those and naginata katanas so that they can compensate for each other's weaknesses. Also give all your sheks heavy weapons because that's what Kral would want.

Does having more than one outpost screw up path finding for jobs? I've got a little base near a city. Some of my haulers, while instructed to gather iron outside the city wall, are running to the outpost and standing by the outpost iron ore storage container there instead of going to the city iron node.
>>253423489The Holy Nation isn't good.
The Holy Nation is dumb, however.
>>253358272>FUCK SKELENIGGERSAren't the Shek the nigger race? If anything the skeletons are the Jews, or just what they appear to be in game which are our robot overlords.
Fetchit has found out that using a crossbow against men who charge at you is very effective, even when your heavy outnumbered and barely understand how to use the crossbow!What the fuck
>>253426494Crossbow kiting is practically cheating.I'm really, really happy the enemy AI can't do it.
>>253426825>I'm really, really happy the enemy AI can't do it.I wish the AI could perform it. Would make the game much more interesting.
>>253427703>fighting a dust bandit with a junkbow>every time you start to swing your weapon it runs away>there is literally nothing you can do to stop it from turning you into a pincushionIt would need SOME counter.Like a charge move that gives you a huge attack penalty, but lets you score a hit on a retreating enemy that isn't in a fighting stance
>Shek challenges me to an honourable duel>Accept>Run out to an open field>no one around>One vs One, to the death>Fight!>I shoot him twice in the chest and he dies
Flop, flop, flop.
>>253428089A combination of reloading progress being reset whenever you move and increasing the speed of the tiny, beetle-like melee combat stride while also reducing the distance at which it activates would do wonders.Also being able to dodge/parry bolts with our sick ninja bullshit would be nice.
>>253431418being able to cancel the incoming crossbow bolts with katana would be both very kino and lore-friendly for Kenshi
Have you seen how a single shek kept killing and crippling about twenty-something holy men until there was no more purple blood left to pump that brave heart?
Remember to be ready for prayer day anons, praise Okran
>>253383352 These fucking bandit attacks have been nonstop after I got ran out of town.

There were no survivors.>pic related
Uhhhh is Blue Eyes supposed to be back in Mourn WITH her bounty after I'd already dragged her to Catun and claimed her bounty? Do NPCs eventually get released and return to where they were originally?
I never realized how much easier crossbows make the game
Fuck. What did I do.Why is there a Faction HQ in Squin and why are Bayan Estata and Seto in there?What fucking mods are causing this?
>>253443251Shek Kingdom.For some reason they have two Faction HQs, the one in Squin has Seto, Estata and Bayan and the one in Admag has the 5 Immortals and an NPC I have never seen before.
>>253440281Normally in the UC the slavers would make their rounds and pick them up however since catun is in bumfuck deathvile there's no slavers to come pick the criminals up so they just sit trough their jail times.I had both screamer and ponk be released only to spawn a squad of thralls, kill the first gate guys and then die and despawn.
Made my base on the Fog Islands and now i'm being attacked by cunts from the Cannibal Plains.That's a walk. I'm that tasty? Btw, which is the best harpoon turret? Becouse i'm feeling that i'm multi-barrel harpoon is a fucking meme.
Has no one bothered to make an improved blood texture mod?
>>253443790Huh, and I guess because they have non-expiring infamous bounties you can turn them in as many times as you want. Weird.
>>253437823You are one brave boy, anon. Good luck with that.
>>253440953Easier - yes, but it will get too easy very soon if you don't do something about it.
>>253445373I've never felt the need to go above double barrel, five or six of them is probably enough if you have default squad size and a level four gate provided you have decent gunners and a well designed kill zone. Larger mobs (fogmen, cannibals, those big packs of hobos) are more likely to breach the gate. You would probably need more if you built in the south east where raiders might actually have decent armour
If I leave someone in cage, in an npc-owned city, with all my characters at the other end of the continent - will the prisoner despawn?

I found I random skeleton wandering near Wend, I heard him say "They saw me..." and "do what you will, humans..."I spoke to him, and he told me to burn him in the holy flame, sacrifice him to okran, some shit like that.I told him I wasnt gonna do that, considering I'm an ex-empire soldier so I'm already hated by the holy nation anyways.I told him I'd help him, and he joined me.Is he a unique recruit? Hes got pretty decent stats.Im unsure what I wish to do with him, however. I had planned to find 3 sheks and use them as tanks as my range guys shoot them down. Any ideas for a skelly?

Merchants don't sell me upgrade anymore.Also I found a lab with many robots, and they followed me and fucked up everything that came close to me, was wierd.
>>253445373The cannibals came to hunt fogmen, and decided to stop by your base since they were already there.
>>253463217Working as intended. Those criminals got eaten by beak things, but since no one ever found them, the posters still exist.It'd be unrealistic for every wanted wanted criminal to still be alive and free in a world as dangerous as Kenshi.

>>253468932After a certain point, they're basically free meat and leather.Be sure not to gang up on them. Those beaks deliver huge splash damage for some reason. Set everyone to passive, and manually assign one fighter for every beak thing. Two at most.
>>253490876Just be aware if you are playing with multiple combat slots even hungry bandits can fuck you.

>>253491145how do you decrease combat slots?
Did you do your training today anon?
>>253491145I don't get it. what are combat slots and what's the danger?Thanks.
>>253491461Not him but it should default to one iirc just be careful with any combat mods
>>253491461>>253491525It is a mod that multiplies it, the default is only 1x. You can only be attacked one at a time without any mods.With multiple combat slots you get stuck blocking although it makes combat between groups better.
>>253491525combat slots changes how many people can attack the same Target at the same time default is one which is why they circle around you and take turns attacking
>>253491617It feels like old Assassin's Creed game without any mods. It can allow you to solo the world.
>>253491617>>253491623I don't think I have that setting modified. Though I'm using heavy weapon so sometimes it takes a while before I can swing, but I usually hit for 50+ into 1-4 ennemies
>>253491737AoE attacks can hit multiple people but the target is only one without mods.If you are playing without mods dont worry.
>>253491617Weird, I don't have that mod and enemies still come a swinging when I fight them alone.
>>253492165Do they attack at the same time?
>>253490802You only get the 1 whos talking to you. Its possible to fail the dialog check and they attack you anyways.
>>253492250no but they were running at me.
>>253493816They'll still come at you as a group. But they will take turns attacking instead of attacking at the same time.

Why does some healing cause better faction relations than others?I healed a HN soldier and got a full 2 relations but I heal a bunch of starving bandits that I didn't attack and I barely got anything.Can the keng scientists give me the data?

Because if it's the former then the taxman is KOS.
>>253505076The short answer is yes, but you get an even better alternative once you make a permanent enemy out of the Shek Kingdom: Rolling 5 Invincible Assaults totally decoupled from the status of the lead NPCs. In other words, tribute stops when you kick them out, which turns the Shek into a permanently assaulting faction, even with all their leaders dead.

>>253505076Get a Garru or a bull and slap a backpack on that bitch. Then load all your food into it once the taxman comes around, and drop it on the ground/move it in to a characters' inventory. They won't be able to loot it.Also a nifty trick for smuggling goods and avoiding losing food to starving vagrants. Just move your backpack to your inventory.
Any mods that fix Skimmers getting stuck on hills? It fucks me over more than helps me out.
>>253505804>>253506021Thanks anons, I now understand the importance of playing nice while committing tax fraud.
>>253507384Just wait until you grovel at nobles in Heft while running a massive weed grow-op inside an outpost house in the city.
>>253504110black dildo ninjas are assholes. I recommend to find their base and destroy their entire clan
>>253500407>a small human hobo>a big buff bugman miner>they live together under one roofsounds ghey
>>253509161I don't recommend you go into the army, if that's all it takes for something to be gay for you.Also, why was Dried Gristle Flaps originally removed?
>>253508272That one tower? Do they stop spawning at all after I take out their leaders?
>>253504110Yeah, if you make an outpost, you gon get raided. If you want safety, buy a house from an existing town. The guards will protect you.
>>253509402they are organized by a horn-less shek wench and her scorchie fuckboi. Take them out.
>>253504110Strongly recommend getting a house in town before you start an outpost. The guards will defend you, you won't be targeted by outpost events/raids, and depending on where you set up you'll have storage/research/production next to a good array of vendors. Outposts are labor intensive, require a lot of materials/goons to make it defensible and are only really needed when you want to have your own supply chain.
>>253509614I did. It is trivial with just 1 merk squad.
>>253497124Select the old abs from their normal map and paste it onto the nude normal map
>>253504110>Thought that Sseth was just making a meme joke in his review regarding them dabbing away with supplies>They literally did just that when I migrated to ShemI'd usually wait until a faction turns hostile before purging their base, but this was an exception.
>>253504110>>253510045To add to this, there's a mod that makes it so that some structures don't count as outposts, so you can have for example a storage box next to an ore node, or a farm, and it won't attract raids on its own. With that, you can have a small-scale mining or farming operation somewhere near your city properties.You can actually do that without mods. Settle near a city, and whenever there's a raid, have everyone run away and kite the attackers to the nearest town. It's just more of a hassle that way.
>>253511427foolish to assume that he'd lie to the merchant guild
I assume trannies\traps are canon in Kenshi?
>>253423048Can sheksluts be shekfus?
>>253512501It's a safe bet.Probably like a quarter of those Holy Nation Paladins are women who dressed up as men to join the army.
>Decide to take on the gorrilo bandits>needed to heal the big G himself so he doesn't fucking die before cashing in his bounty>Notice that my relations with them went from 90 to 51 in like a second>Heal the entire garrison>walk out with 20 plus relation with themGotta love these retards, they're not ungrateful like the rest of the world. They're working on goku logic.
Anyone tried Military Craft? I saw a lets player using the mod and the combat animations look fucking like goofy-ass anime shit, but I kind of like it. Just wondering if it'll make the game easier or harder.
>people unironically using Scorchlanders*tink* *tink* *tink*AHEM
>>253514518>not putting them in your sweatshopsWhat are you, stupid?
>>253514518schorchies aren't blacks, they're mutant australians.
>>253514678I use bugs, duh.
>>253514725>I use bugs, duh.Which are mutant chinks
Imagine tying scorchlander girl up and cumming on her until she becomes greenlander.
>>253515606Imagine not being a degenerate whose entire life revolves around lust.Must be liberating.
>>253515785My mom said i could be anything, so i became a degenerate.
>>253513939It seems like OP shit but at least you can roleplay as MURICA bringing FREEDOM to everyone.
>>253513051with legs like that they can be whoever they want
>>253515606>wasting your semen like thatcommit sudoku, brainlet
>>253513580I have to press X here, chief. The holy incels have facial hair in 9\10 cases.
>>253514518>people unironically using ScorchlandersThey look like round-eared drow to me. And I'd fuck them. A lot.
>>253517656This, scorchies are the elves of kenshi>Good at making shit>Flexible and bendy>Not very robust>Doesn't like dumb labor
>>253518617Not to mention their overall status of exotic people. Hivers are just bugmen that trade and steal shit. Sheks are honorabu orks. Skeletons are basically skeletons but made from metal. Scorchlanders meanwhile have no major role, and their best representatives are either leaders of gorilla warfare ninja weebs, or that one guy who went full nuts with skin bandits. I don't count a couple of UC nobles because they are still small fish.
did someone suddenly discover scorchfus?
>>253517524>easy to fake>conceals faceThey sure do.
>>253520671SURELY the holy incels would have some regular ''pull your holy brother's mustache and beard just in case'' anti-female measures, right?
>>253520783I've stripped enough Holy Incels for my leather/iron industry to know there are no women.
HN > UC
>>253520783It doesn't occur to them to doubt their holy brothers. The cultural image they have of a women is a seductress driven to evil by its lustful nature, neither able nor willing to join the ranks of the holy sentinels.
>>253521385so you peeled them and collected their dicks then, right? if no dicks were peeled then logically they must all have been women
>>253521651Everyone sucks don't follow any power, let them sort their own shit out. Building a self-sufficient community, minding your own business, and stacking your cats behind your sturdy walls is best end IMO.
I am tempted to give one of my scorched titty cows some high paladin armor and take a lot of funny screenshots, but I don't want to break the game immersion even further.
>>253523104If you've posted this then you've already made your decision. Take good screenshots.
>>253523374I will, once the crossbow thunderthots decide to finally attack the Rebirth. The grumpy little 'roid-Jesus-look-alike will hear lots of stories about his holy brothers and their unholy ends.
>>253513580I like to think that, somewhere in Kenshi's world, there's an all-female squad of paladins who insist that they're men.
>>253513584Yeah, that can happen of you heal faction leaders. I did the same thing with the Red Saber boss, and got a big relations boost with the Red Sabers.
>>253524298I wonder if they do some ''brotherly love'' to each other while whispering gently ''no homo'' to each other's ear
Mongrel doesn't make sense, Chris
>>253526378Mongrel should have assloads of ancient technology gizmos and whatnot. Mongrel should be the main hunting ground of the Tech Hunters. The Fogmen should be zombie-cyborgs armed with ancient pew-pew guns that explode once the operator dies or gets hit too hard in its head.
>see a manhunter patrol near the border of the Eye>go ask if they want to start some shit>they do>it goes pretty even, I'm seriously outnumbered but my leader's getting pretty strong>she gets knocked out eventually, though>enslaved>wake up while they're still bandaging each other>nobody's looking directly at me>THUNK the nearest slaver>grab his weapon>round two>manage to win this timeThat was fun.
>>253526378>land is well suited for farming>rich in all resources>fogmen aren't that dangerous, but keep Holy Nation goons awayIt's actually a really good spot for a city.
>>253527494No wait fuck
>>253528139The aftermath was surprisingly boring. I just grabbed Beep off the bedroll and ran, and the skimmer gave up.Sometimes they're not hunting you, and just want you to get off their turf or something.I do still have the "escaped slave" modifier for getting shackled. And Beep is still at "slave" for some reason, perhaps because he wasn't conscious and thus could take no action against the manhunters himself until I'd already taken off his shackles. I'll see if that does anything.
I-I dont think is this a nice village..
>>253528651Looks pretty much like an average player town.You should go ask if they want to recruit you.
>>253528651cannibals are very nice, they heal your character for free. Think about it, any other "nice" faction would've left you for dead.
What fucking mod is this
>>253531592this looks anime af mein nigguh
>>253531592he's a big guy
>>253532590that little tanned girl will pop like a balloon once she loses the duel
>boot up murderhobo simulator>new game>usual start>make my way west loot shek ruins>going to nearest town to sell and resupply>nothing>not a living thing in the city>can take anything and not get tagged stolen
I'm starting an adventure as a hive exile. After luring some bandits into the hive settlement I pick some loot and head toward the nearby Mongrel. Fogmen managed to do a little damage.
>>253534775you are lucky your bug is alive. I heard the fogmen feed on assholes. Entire assholes.
>>253534775I met up with Beep and he had a free med kit. We looted some fogmen and now we're mining iron for cash. I usually get a really big squad when I play through kenshi but I'm thinking of having no more than 10 members this time.>>253534335I used to think that glitch was inconvenient before I knew about importing
>>253535105if you have that mod on stronger fogmen - just go and collect the heads of dead heavies.
>>253535260Took me a moment to understand. Nicely done
>>253533595That’s my fetish
is Chris a musclefag?
>>253537221I don't know but he is my fucking nigger
What color red are these dyed rags and who do i have to stick colored armored rags onto to get it?I've tried berserkers, no-face, inquisitors, etc. All come out burgundy. Is it on the second color channel of the reavers or something?
>>253544132This might just be shit memory from having 400 hours into the game but I recall grass pirates having the more blood red color.
What is a good place to set up a base? Like, with access to all or most resources and ideally without crazy fucks constantly trying to shake me down/eat me/slave me/stab me for the shiggles?
>>253546794There are some places that you can depopulate by killing the monster and bandit populations, like the fishman island I think. But you're gonna have to do the depopulating first
>>253546794Shem. The answer is always Shem.
>>253535105I think Kenshi is best with a small team. I only have three people in my current game.
dead game dead thread
Fetchit has managed to hire two retarded sheks to join his adventures.However, Fetchit has also gotten tired of having so many crossbows in his squad. Hes been accidently shot in the back way too many times, and holy fuck too much micro jesus christSo instead, Fetchit had decent to enact a policy.For every crossbow, there must be 3 people without ranged weapon. Meaning in a party of 10, I need to have 7 melee and 3 ranged, roughly.This mean 4 archers gonna retrain. PICK WHO CONVERTS TO THE SWORD(They all got similar stats)
>>253553578Zoop looks like a good potential martial artist
FINISH THE GAME CHRIS
>>253553886Never done martial artists, but I was thinking about doing tanks in full samurai armour. i havent done that since launch.
>>253553578Both shek retards, skelebro and the man Fetchit himself
>>253357765Howd you dye the armour?
>>253557141>>253553886So here we goHax, Swiff, and Flashbox are the only crossbowmen left.Swiff because she was very skilled and an accurates hotHax and Flashbox because theyre manlets, manlets dont fight in meleeFetchit himself has taken up a Moon Clever to cleve bandit ass in half, unless a pack of beak things smells the blood and eats his ass. Zoop may become a martial artist, assuming he can surviving swinging a giant fucking sickle around without killing himself.Go get him Fetchit!
Also look at this guy just floating in the fucking air
>>253558121>just fucking end me
>>253554608He couldn't even if he wanted to. Why do you think it took 13 years to shit out an unfinished product? If he didn't have a community dragging the product kicking and screaming into 1.0, it wouldn't be here at all. Pathetic excuse for a "dev".
>>253554608>Kenshi 2 is in fact, Kenshi 1 but with more features.
>>253559606>announce a game is done when in fact it's halfway finished>finish it and sell it again as sequel
>>253294461If someone has a bounty on their head they are fair game.
>>253559606man I'll happily pay for that
>>253560674Not true, I went after Razor in Black Desert City and the barkeep and his pet spider-bot kicked my ass. Same case for Ells in Sho-Battai, attacking him alerts the guards.
>>253565076This is why investing in at least one ninja is ideal.
>>253565541this is a bug abuse
>>253553578>holy fuck too much micro jesus christyou never player RTS games I presume?
>>253568086I actually have, but atleast in RTS games I raraely have to micro so my own guys dont kill eachother
>>253568498Rome total war 1. Started playing for the 'red romans' as teenager me called them. Sent troops to a tiny settlement because senate told me so. Put the infantry in front of archers. Archers shot them in napes. Many years later I see the same in Kenshi. This is not the kind of nostalgia I asked for.
Being a naughty Anon, do 1.0.25 mods work with version 1.0.22 considering it's more or less hotfixes being put out by the devs?
>>253569195Nothing can be said for sure, they don't announce the changes on a technical level and have seen things break when "nothing was done" per announcements. Will a mod work? Fucking maybe, there's a constant headache of not knowing what the devs are up to 1) they have horrific response rates 2) they often don't have solutions, just more questions. See: LoFi forums, the recommended route for contacting the so-called devs. Krista is a fucking joke of a human being.
Theres a civil war in Shark.Fetchit got insulted by some stone rats. Naturally he told them to fuck off and started a fight.Then the Blackshifters joined the fightThen the HoundsThen the Swampers joined against the Hounds and BlackshiftersWhile everyone is fighting, the remaining heroes are gonna pick up the unconscious and run the fuck away.Jesus
>>253570281It's kind of funny, its not that there's a civil war in Shark, rather, its that multiple overrides are bundled into the static start for Shark (namely, the Hounds and Blackshifters both occupy Shark, brilliant move). This in turn guarantees gang war to unfold the longer you stay in Shark, they're configured to pick fights, but Shark is also configured to account for the deaths of various gang leaders. Except, in the case of Shark, no matter what happens to big Darkbrow, the Blackshifters are never displaced. I adjusted this to view for effect and it's a fact, Shark devolves into civil war because there are multiple gangs inhabiting the same towns, when, as shown at Grayflayer and Stone Rat villages, this "wasn't meant to be so", but is at Shark, thus the chaos, all thanks inconsiderate dialogue triggers, essentially then it can be said, they managed to ruin a town by deciding to stop developing it.
>>253570723>big DarkbrowHes currently in this clusterfuck of a fight, gonna try to put him down and run away.I think its fucking hilarous that an entire town is at war with itself, simply because I told someone to fuck off and Fight me. The town must have been a pot of gunpowder about to go off for that to happenCan you spot Fetchit?
Don't bother with the politics of other nations. Create your own.
>>253571115>says the man who built a base to specifically invade the HN from the northNo politics here, just good old fashioned Flotsam rationalizing.
>>253571115Why bother making big tiddy shek monsters when you could actually change the world?
>>253571301what do you do with all those buildings? are most just filler?
So I've just started my second of Kenshi ever as Dude with dog, and I wanted to make a LISA related run, so I made Brad and Cheese Legs as my starting characters.>scavenging around bast for food and shit>can't find any, only wildlife around are packs of bonedogs, holy nation guys and samurai don't carry food>welp.jpg>cheese legs starts to starve, decide to go to northern coast in search of dog food>make brad carry cheese legs the whole way for maximum gains>eventually brad starts to starve too>both characters passing out from hunger>fast forward>cheese legs 3 points away from dying of hunger>spot fishing village on the horizon after dodging raptors and cannibals>run for it>brad passes out at the gate>cannibal casually strolls in and kidnaps him>cheese legs fucking diesAnd just when I thought it was all over, the cannibals that got me ran into these beak things, and I managed to get the fuck out amid the carnage.After that I arrived at Mega City, sadly there was no one there, so I just took their grog and went back to the fishing village.This game is really fun, even though I feel like a retard with how slow I'm progressing the joy from exploring really balances it out. Hopefully I'll learn to play properly one day.>>253571301One day...
>>253571115>>253571228I travelled the world to start a base, across the Hub and through the Fog Islands, and even accidentally into the god damn Floodlands because it seemed like a good idea at the time. I always had Hivers and Shek in my group, so I could never go through Holy Nation territory.I made a journey like you, dude. Why not try and fight for good?
>>253571417I've got 120 dudes running around. The only time the entire place gets used is when the wounded all run for a bed when the army gets back from adventures, because I carry everyone wounded rather than set up camp. Usually to capture certain people.
>>253571973This is incredible, how much time did you spend on this?
>>253571973but here's the real secret about kenshi. It's the best god damn anime if you want it to be.
>>253572201you have to do something with your home base if you're running around the world all the time
>>253572316you could dab off with someone's bread loaves or you could try and change the world
>>253570903>>253570723So I just saw big Darkbrow dead, and big grin is dying in a pile of swampers.What happens now?
>>253572661Grayflayers will take Shark on next load cycle of of the town, if Big Gray is still alive. If all three are dead, it goes to the Swampers.
>>253571228>>253571973>>253572201enjoy the game however you want dudesbut i'd rather try and tell a good story with an army rather than broken stealth ninjas
>>253573141cheers m8, you're making Kenshi a better place
>>253573302it's still a dangerous world outside the walls
>>253573417but you can try to keep as many as you can safe
>Jump Big Bo in Black Scratch as she’s walking out of the bar>All the guards aggro to the one guy I sent after her>Have him flee the city and have the guards chase him>Have my two other guys turn her into a pincushion with bolts>Scoop her bloody ass up and drag her to Brink for those sweet 30,000 Cats>Lose my pup Bonedog, Calavera, to a group of Grass Pirates en routeGotta take a loss for a big score...
>>253573141Doing both actually. Outer Heaven after all is founded by a soldier who uses stealth alot.
>>253576161That's cool dude
>>253576161Skeletons look so weird in samurai armour
ah shit, crashing on bootup/mainmenu after the splash screens is there a general troubleshooting guide?
>>253573141How do you feed a crew like that? I thought I was hot shit for keeping 20 people stuffed with dustwiches.
Catun was over run by fish men
>>253578275so ive come to exterminate
I trade so hard the bugmen caravan bosses run from me before I'm done unloading my goods.
>>253578062Same way you would keep an army alive irl. Military = food surplus for adventures, so I literally dedicate 40 of my dudes to building, crafting, farming, and guarding
>>253578062Fully developed bases shit food out beyond belief. With even 10 or so people tasked to farming with 90+ skills, they'll produce enough to level World's Ends shop refresh after refresh, just on food alone. It's the easiest money in the game, it just takes a short while to build up to it.
