Last thread suddenly died so I made a new one.
New run, Prince, Drone or Soldier?
>>258928445Soldier!>>258928448ur welcum>>258928537Okran is gae!
>>258928908Based big bro soldier protecting his drones and giving them a goal to ascend to
Is there any good “more weapons and armor” mod?
>>258931243there are some flavor weapons popping up in various mods, but you gotta accept the whole package for the new pointy sticks.
>>258931243Bandit Expansion adds some cool looking ones and mixes things up a bit but they aren't that good to actually use.
>>258931381New Weapons Dissemination Mod is really good, it adds 23 weapons and only 3 of them look fucking retarded. The rest range from okay to great (In terms of looks)
>>258929006Gigachad Soldier will defend his drones at all costs
>>258934180I wish I could find a southern hive soldier
Why does a puncture wound from a crossbow bolt cause more bloodloss than a slash from a katana
>>258934592Because Chris doesn't know how to crossbow. Even after a nerf from a mod that gave skellies +50% defense against the crossbow bolts they still die from oil bleeding.
>new to game>arrive at catun>10k to join thieves>better save up then>giraffe boys get slaughtered outside by the guards>yoink all the pelts and sell them>join thieves guild>sell all the stolen shit I've spent the past 3 hours haulingneat
has anyone tried ''Stronger Group Combat'' mod?
>>258932583TRIANGLE BANDITS THE ONI
>>258936861Triangle bandits are fine, it adds more shit to fightThe oni is fucking retarded though, but I never go the crater anyways.
i'm porting some apachii, sky and azar hairs, will try some armor/dresses/weapons later this month, any suggestions?
>>258939414muscle-women yeslolis get out
>>258937118Any mods with long hair.Almost all of what Kenshi has goes from medium lenght to short.
>>258939665For every time you spout shit, I'll lower their breast sliders by 10. Don't force my hand, anon.
I parked one of my guys on the training dummies in mongrel and sent another out to fuck around the fog and I see the guy in town getting attacked by a guard. Can someone explain?
>>258941487Training dummies aren't public use, you have to be allied with the faction that owns them.
>>258941487Do you just walk into gyms and use their equipment without paying and applying for a membership, boyo? Same shit. Just stop training when you're spotted and warned, then continue when you're left alone. Or ally yourself with the faction that owns said equipment.
>>258941121>nodachi taller than they are
I'm pretty confused about equipment, like how can I even tell if something is better than other.Also I've won 1 fight so far, it was against a goat, absolutely every other engagement has wrecked me.I figured I had a good chance, when I was attacked by 1 dog, but good god it tore both my characters to shreds, I was lucky that only one was comatose and managed to drag her to safety before death.I like the game, but I'm honestly not sure what I should be doing after suffering such a complete defeat, figured I'd look into better equips, but no idea what to look for.
This place is a constant warzone. Cannibals, Holy Nation patrols, Rebel Farmers, and the occasional slave or starving bandit mob. Im grateful the UC are my friends, or I'd have to deal with them as well. I don't think I've gone a single day without having to fight someone.
>>258943567Animals are fucking crazy tough, dont let their stats fool you. They can have 20's in their stats, but can easily stun lock you to death their ridiculous attack speeds. Fucking Garrus can easily kill a guy with 60s in his stats if he fails to block one attack. Dont fight animals unless you absolutely have to, or severely outnumber them.Honestly, after you get your shit kicked in, rest up to full health in a town bed, and then head on out and find more stuff to explore, kill, or recruit.
>>258939665>lolis get out
>>258943567every time you get the shit beat out of you, you get up stronger. just keep at it. try to beat up some starving bandits, maybe.
>get to mourn>open control tower>the beastie kicks in my shit and proceeds to rampage through the town>go and loot all the corpses for better weaponsmy fucking sides, I might go back and get my shit kicked in again, seemed to be good toughness training.
>>258944475>little girl>not wanting a tall amazonian shek to dominate youShit fetish my dude
>>258945252>wants to be dominatedlol
>>258946321>not wanting to mix it up
>>258947643the game is so broken in some aspects it's actually fun because you never know what might happen. granted I have only a bit under 100 hours. makes me sad that it's been abandoned.
>>258928068It's fine so long as you have a permit.
>>258944729The elder has been kicking my ass for a while now but its power levelling my toughness... is this cheating?
>>258950715Wait till you build yourself a prison colony or the thunder dome because you need punching bags to leveling your guys then you will know that you are the real bad guy in this game.
>>258935223>a pack of women avoid honorable melee against worthy foesshameful
>>258936034Honestly it's better to just travel to a different faction's territory to sell that shit, thieves only give you half.
>>258941121You could probably only do that 3 times.
>>258941487>>258942970OR join the thieves guild and use theirs.>>258943567Cutting/blunt/bleed numbers, higher is better, as well as green things. The more cutting damage it does the more dex XP it gives, the more blunt damage it does the less dex XP it gives, the heavier it is the more str XP it gives. But really reach, animations, and animation speed are king.The beginning is all ass-beatings, it's the only way you'll get stronger so seek them out (the ones that don't kill you, that is). Animals don't flinch and have decent HP/atk/dam, but lone bonedogs are decent when you're starting out just because they usually don't eat you. Starvers are better though.Try getting enslaved, they'll keep you alive until you're strong enough to break out.
>>258949157They claim they'll port over all the 'engine stuff' from kenshi II.
>>258951086Hey, I give them food and they only occasionally try to crawl away, speak for your own prisoners.
>>258927972Is there any value in building rep with the holy nation outlaws? They are scrubs but seem friendly enough. Would it be possible to make a stable mod that adds an NPC who can permanently change the quality of armor/weapons equipped by any given minor faction for a cost? I like the idea of being able to arm my proxy stooges against our common enemies. Also it would be nice to provide training services
why is Stoat under attack by a group of cannibals?
>>258942829>>258942970>>258951927I didn’t know that. I saw that the barracks were public so I thought the equipment was too. Also, I joined the thieves and their melee attack only goes up to 5, while the Mongrel dummy goes up to 15. So the question I have now is, how do I ally with Mongrel?
>>258952223they claim lots of things
>>258953896Cannibals get hungry?
>>258955047>how to ally with mongrellmao don't bother. Just take a few swings at the fogmen when the guards are fighting them, much faster anyway. You could probably set your guy to bodyguard one of the gate groups, maybe.
>>258953896where the hell did they come from?
>>258956894Thats what Im asking
>>258956894your own stupidity and inability to realize the effects of larger actions have consequences. you get every cannibal you deserve if you can't suss out the reason why
>give large shekfu a Nodachi>literally just a regular katana for her
is there a face mod that doesn't make half the wastelanders have brightly colored rainbow eyes?
Gotta rest while laborforce makes money to feed out habbits.
The lack of any flat terrain to build on is slightly annoying, but I otherwise like how my first base is coming along.No farm yet, which is an issue, but I'm able to (very slowly) make building materials and iron plates.How much much farmland am I going to need to feed around six people?
WHY IN GODS NAME is FUCKING SETA IN A RANDOM WATCHTOWER NEAR OKRANS FIST STARING AT THE WALLIS THIS WHERE HE HIDES?
>>258960716he just needs some personal space, leave him alone
Can humans and Shek breed?
>>258961185HE JUST CUT OFF THREE LIMBS FROM MY PARTYHE DIES NOW
>>258961494no one in kenshi can breed.
>>258961514what the shit? are you playing with frequent limb loss?
>>258961979Yeah, but he does 200 damage a swing anyways, not really hard to cut off limbs even with rare.
>>258960446Not much. One vegie patch and one wheat patch should make enough food cubes for about a dozen.You can probably get by with one L veg. making cooked veggies
>>258960716You've found his pleasure dungeon
>>258960446Also you should probably have picked a flatter place, that's going to be a real hindrance without a mod or f12 fuckery.
>>258961494Creatures with bone plates have the right equipment, confirmed by looking at a bull.They can probably do Something..
So what am I supposed to do
>>258963490Get a strong shek woman to be your wife
>>258962726Alright, probably going to head up to Stack for some wheat then. Should be able to find some greenfruit there as well.>>258962998I'm on the edge of a flat plateau, so I can probably just move the walls to fence off some of that land. I'm not too worried about it yet, as I'm treating most buildings as temporary at this stage. Pic related should give me me a fair bit of flat land if I need it.
On a scale of 1 to 10 how bad of an idea would it be to set up a base in the cannibal capital
>>258965001In vanilla, not hard at all.If you got cannibals expanded (which you should), if you have a dozen or so guys with stats in the 40's you should be okay, but enjoy getting attacked so often you cant even rest.
>>258963490Become the strongest of them all.
>ruins in Vain>it's populated with blood spidersHuh, thought they lived in the swamp biome..
>>258968948those ruins are directly above the spider plains
Damn the gate guards at mongrel don't fuck around
>>258970249>spider plainsYou mean that little peninsula to the south?I uh..I was heading there to get a reading..
Remember, whenever /keng/ is downed, give it some first aid and get it to bed ASAP!
>>258970860Nah the part right below vain and the stenn desert, shits loaded up with skin spiders.
>>258971176No. Every time I try to pick /keng/ up, it says I'm kidnapping it, and I'm not risking the rep loss with you guys just to heal you up.
>>258971374Sorry friend, you're looking for a feature that /ken2g/ might offer, for now, you take that rep hit and like it.
A paladin has decided to betray his kin and join my cause. What should I name him?
Time to rest up.
>>258973279Thats good, Im gonna take that
I wanna totally dominate a Shek woman and have her consent to sawing her horns off, and reward her with hugs, petting and pregnancy.
>>258972963Actually a pretty safe spot, wasn't bothered at all by any wildlife/bandits.
Maybe if we ignore him he'll go away.
>>258974505I mean I could just lead him into a deathyard.
>>258974236>getting rid of her hornsHow cruel! She grew those just for you!
>>258974589Like I said.
>>258975165You're lucky my game crashed and he wasn't following me on the autosave
>>258976025Aw shucks, you're a sweetie afterall
>>258975135And got rid of them just for me.
Any mod that turns Sheks into Shrecks?
so I set the raid size to 4
>>258976761to test the brass Chadbots
>>258976929Hundred Guardians? more like, Hundreds of Dead.
>>258977091>0 brass casualtiesI smell shenanigans.
Wait, THAT's Last Stand? Why does it only get an outpost icon?!
>>258968948You can also find some at the ruins in the eastern rebirth mountains.
>>258977980Outposts and Military garrisons have the same marker, but operate a bit differently in the background.
>>258977832field robotics do a great job, many fell to the Shek blade but soon got up to slay them with twice the strength, as is the skeleton's nature
If I grow hydroponic Hemp (because you can't do cotton) in my building in a UC town will the npcs walking through report me or does it only happen if the gate guards catch you with it?
>>258978874Ok. who gave you the keys to the robot factory and did you get any form of acknowledgement from Cat-Lon? I swear, the amount of paperwork you're going to create for the foreign affairs office gets worse with every report. Do you have any idea how bad this makes us all look? Need I remind you the thralling happened for a clear reason that need not bear repeating? If you're not back in the Ashlands before the next raid arrives, we're going to have even more to discuss I'm sure. The nerve of you P4 types, when will you learn that you can't simply browbeat (or actually beat) the humanoids into submission, they never learn from it. You need a resetting at minimum.
>>258979415Cat-Lon seems to agree, I was acting out his imperial will of aggressive self-preservation
>>258980038>that total misconception of intentDisgusting, the skeletons retreated out of a hindsight of knowing it was all for naught. There is nothing to be gained in the exchange between skeletons and others, it is best to live and let live. To think the "mad" emperor would turn about face and commit to such a heinous act after the lessons of the past is hopeful delusion. The old emperor has seen the trials many cannot and will not, he is damned to know what others cannot, the woes of eternal rulership. Leave the poor man be, that's not the way.
>>258980253Little did they know is that the ride never ends.Cat-Lon reunited the Ashlands and expanded into the Sonorous Dark, with clear intentions of breaking the Southern Hive and bordering territories.Stobe was wrong.
>>258980512>Stobe was wrong.Now that's heresy I never thought I'd hear. That's enough to have the papers signed, enjoy what time you had.
>>258980652Stobe gave his life for Old Humans, not the filthy horde we see today, they and they alone are the example of wasted mercy.
>>258980038Is this dialogue in vanilla?
>heading towards the squares in the SW of the map>'bugmaster' territory where veteran shek warriors go to die>in the foreground are obvious ruins- a lone dwindling stream winds its way through naked rebar and scorched concrete, barely fast enough to make it to the coast before it evaporates>in the distance, beyond the mirage, a shining metal mountain is pierced by slender conical spires hundreds of feet tallspooky trek
>>258980512I can hear that skeleton's gears squeeling as they spin up for the strike, neat pic
>>258980907oh no, it's part of a mod called Second Empire Rebuilt, it lets you reset Cat-Lon and either recruit him or let him restore his faction
>>258980864Do you still not get it? At any moment, on a whim, with but a mere command could it be so. It's never been a matter of how, now only just the why. If it were any more difficult it would be under consideration as necessary, but totally outside of the realm of required by observation. The empire need not rule, it only need exist. The strength of arms means little when the presence of mind for the present and derive useful hindsight from past experiences. Cat-Lon doesn't have to lift a finger or rule over the planet, life is not to be trifled with, the extinction was an mistake, not a happy accident. No good will come out of such ventures.
>>258980864They are the same humans, only lost now.
>>258981182yes they paid the price of Obedience, yes Cat-Lon tried to undo the evil of the past and it proved to be impossible. Now a reborn realm fights to safeguard the skeleton's place in the world and any opposing force will get no more mercy. Let the westerners drown in fog and die on cannibal plains and let the rest live a slave's life, the south-east belongs to the skeletons
What do skeletons drink ?
>>258982465...I don't think he meant that kind of thirst.
>>258982615do the skeletons have oil vampires that suck blood from machinery and other skeletons?>>258983109Surely he doesn't want to use his massive ancient expandable cyberdong on my poor innocent Jingxian, that would be indecent !
>>258951220>a pack of womenExcuse you mister spooky magical skeleton on a golden toilet, it's ''A pack of EVIL women''. Why would these evil women want to be honorabu when they can fool the foolish foes instead and defeat them from afar?
>>258957310she can imagine that the nodachi you gave her is a katana. Think how she can imagine (You), anon
hey anons, its the slave martial artist guy again, i found a Cute Hiver field medic and just training his strength, athletics and combat has been fantastic. feels like a buddy cop movie in the making
>>258986212plus nothing says bonding like travelling between okranite mines/camps i've captured and one by one beating the fuck out of paladins until my hiver gets coma'd
How to larger boobs for jrpg race
>>258986212>hisAren't the working drones (and even soldiers) infertile females?
>>258986823dude idk, i've only played like 5-7 hours
>>258986773>how to larger bobsWe should put this in the OP.
>>258986823I've had Jon trigger his massage dialogue with princes.
>>258986823All hivers save the females are male. It's stated somewhere in the lore.
>>258988743>all males except females are males
>>258986823basically yes, but they aren't really divided into sex they are all the same sex divided into sub-species.
I picked up the game during the summer sale and I cant figure out what I'm doing wrong with the job system. I have a copper box in a small shack in Stack, shift click the copper deposit, they mine the copper and then after taking it to the box they just stand around and refuse to move. Is this the way it's supposed to be?
>>258974236you are a very odd okranite
A flatskin can't even have any bath time privacy in these days. The poor male scientist just wanted to soak in warm water between the scientific sessions. Alas, the hunting party of ninja shekfus decided to head back home for quick R&R a couple of minutes ago. How could this possibly end for him?
>>258988743>All hivers save the females are male
>>258989490Sometimes it's fucky. Do they have jobs switched on? How far away is the copper deposit?
>>258991365>tfw no beep trap 'gf'
>>258992182It's in the closest possible shack. The deposit I'm trying to mine is the one behind the Stack Police building and the storage is in the destroyed shack for sale.I've just seen that when the game is paused all three of my members say they are "Operating Machine", but when unpaused they are "Aimless".
>>258992182>>258992640And yes, I have jobs turned on, because I just gave all of my members the Medic job, and one of my Shek walked over to the human with a slight leg injury and healed him.
>>258992640I have had problems with that copper node every time I've tried to use it.>>258992942Medic stays on even if you turn jobs off.
>>258993317Oh ok, I just gave jobs for the other two deposits around Stack and they both started to work immediately. And I didn't know that about Medic. Thanks for the help.
>>258984418>>258982465Been wondering, do you just choose random chinese names or are you familiar with them? Why no family names? I'm disappointed by the lack of yin's and xiao's.
where can I find decent porn for this game? all my searches lead me to some blind swordsman
>>258996001>all my searches lead me to some blind swordsman>KenshiThis is way funnier than it has any right to be.
>the lights are still onuuh
>>258994723>I'm disappointed by the lack of yin's and xiao's.I do almost what the Mortal Kombat's developers did - I ask google to translate basic words like 'Beautiful' or 'Lustful' and then I hit reverse translation several times until I am 100% sure that the translation is correct. It takes a while but my autism demands it.On a sidenote - how do I get this dust bandit off of the cliff? He refuses to get down and be beaten by many shek boots.
>>259000794I want to beep Beep's beep.
>>259000987crossbows are useful sometimes.
>>258990526what mod is the bathtub from?
>>259001234The ninja shekfus refuse to just shoot the bastard. I don't understand why!
>>259001520Maybe 'reset squad position' up to him?
>>259001163too bad Beep will beep (You) instead
Alright, just two of them, think we'll try clearing it out this time. Healed up with camping beds just below, will attack in groups of 2s..here we go
>>259001513One of the mods on useless junk for homes, can't recall which one.>>259001743What do you mean?
>>259002085Point your camera at him, save, load the save with the checkbox checked.
>>259001836Well, went better than expected. Sent my strongest as the spearhead and none of them fell, though Burn went down to 20 chest hp.
>>259002339Will try tomorrow, thanks.
>>258992478Beep is a little brother for protecting
>>259004204I haven't gone to mongrel yet this playthrough maybe I should go get him, sling him over my shoulder and take him back to my base so he never has to fight.
>>259004709A good big brother would teach him how to defend himself
>>259004816I can smith him an edge 1 weapon and specialist gear which I will upgrade when I can.I have an dummy to train him to 15 attack, train his science by building electronics.He'll have a full belly, a roof over his head and a family.
>>258937118Kenshi really needs some better armor options. Maybe some martial coats, some armors that might belong to a wealthy mercenary despite being a post apocalyptic setting? I understand this is sci-fi martial arts Mad Max, but not everything has to look like it was pieced together from old rusty metal. We have smiths now. Also, better armor models for Holy Nation. And better wandering swordsman clothes. Really, just all the coolest shit you can find that fits the setting and isn't either junkyard monster stuff or models that some goober pulled from World of Warcraft.
Taunt does nothing!
Hello there! Do you all have a moment to talk about our lord and savior Okran?
>>259005032But he wants to be strong, just like his big brothers/sisters
>>259005542Only if you have Block switched on as well, Taunt needs attacks to work.
>>259006923The grace and light of Okran protects me, friend! Or.. Are you saying Okran doesn't exist?
>>259005352>this is a sci-fi martial arts Mad Max>but not everything needs to look like it was pieced together from old rusty metalYes, it does. I could agree with VIPs getting no-rust versions of the standard armors, maybe with a single extra frill or decoration a la the HN pallette swaps, but more than that would most likely ruin the aesthetic.And keep yer mitts off the HN, their suits are perfectly suited for the masculine beefhead luddites they are.
>>259005763Okran is gae
>>259007841Where did you get so much money after a single week?
>>259007963We're capable of having actual blacksmiths who can melt down metal, anneal away all rust and forge pure iron and steel, but you're saying a well oiled squad with a strong outpost should still wear old rebar and scraps taped to their chest?I'm just saying we should have some nice suits, maybe locked behind tech 5 or 6, that aren't complete junk. Otherwise how is progress measured? What's the before and after picture going to look like for a character that went through hell and back to get riches and skill? They'll just look like naked bandits in the first picture and chunky rust bandits when you've done everything there is to do. How boring.
>>259008417Nobushi is an absolute waifu
>>259008303I am funded by His Holiness to purge the land of vile Narkonites. Goodness, it's windy out here! Should we see if there are any foul demons further south?
>>259008417I would equip a 4 man squad with those exact armor and weapons immediately, some mod genius please do this
>>259008612Head to the central-western part of the Swamp. I heard there is a small, particularly lovely settlement that welcomes people like you, paladin. Don't mind the crossbow bolts and human bones lying around the entire area.
Hell, I just finished healing up and packing away our beds and now I see there are 9 lightly-injured adult beak things out there munching the raptor herd that was bullying beak things just yesterday.They're all gonna aggro when we step on the ramp, aren't they?
>>259007841I'm saying Okran was a skeleton
>>259009472I wonder if HN patrols have anything to say if your character calls themselves Okran.inb5 luxerie fetours
>>259009343I found a demonic Narkonite town instead. It was filled with demons, and one of them manage to rid me of my arm. DAMN YOU NARKO! How could I possibly be Okran's Will as a one-armed Paladin? I cannot likely wield my Cross with Okranite perfection with one arm! What will I be now? Just another filthy victim, unable to carry out the Lord's graces!
>>259009558Someone can mod it>>259008686Be the hero we need, anon
>>259009731No masturbation for you, dear paladin. Get over it. Now you can either be a useless holy man, or you can install a skeleton arm and bash some evil heathens. What's call?
>>259009731Maybe there are some more medical kits in this Shop Counter of Narko...
>>259009837Okran's Beard! It's filled with demonic limbs! I bet the sign outside said "Narko's Anti-Nub shop"! I wouldn't know, I can't read Nark. Wait... Are those arms? Left arms? NO! There must be another way. Perhaps if I pray to Okran to regrow my arm, he will allow me to continue doing his Will.... But still, they're right there...
>>259009731reminds me of that time I exterminated Blister Hill
>>259010056Strange, I don't feel any of Narko's evil coursing through my body. Maybe Okran's light is shielding me! I can use the enemy's metal power against it, with the help of Okran!
>>259010342and fed the Phoenix to the deadhive
>>259010349Fuck you buddy, your cringy posts are one thing but don't pull this bullshit.
>>259009731Just retrieve a short-cleaver from the armory, brother.
>>259010349>I don't feel any of Narko's evil coursing through my bodyI give you a week, maybe two, until you find yourself in a big sweaty orgy with many big breasted shek females, paladin. Everyone went the same road. You are not an exception.

how do you guys train low-level recruits? every time I send my group to fight anyone my top 2-3 people murder everything before the weaker guys can get more than two or three hits in. should I make them watch from a distance?
>>259030037make them the cavalry.
>>259030037I use a mod to train their strength to 50 Because fuck microing a guy to run around with rocks in his backpack and then I usually go fight fogmen, bandits, or skimmersSkimmers are really good training, they have a lot of hp, have stats in the 30s so they give a lot of XP, attack slowly, run slowly so if you need to book it you easily can, but they hit kinda hard, around 40-60 with no armour. its also very easy to gang up on them.
>>259030037Make your top guys only join the fray when things go south.
>>259030037Set your high level guys to block and taunt.
>>258939838well, after some messages over the nexus i'm officially porting Yundao Hair to Kenshi, wasnt able to contact the creators of some older long hair packs (most of them don't even mod anymore) but i'm gonna port them anyways for the /keng/

Why does armor give me -defense.On another note, found 2 more willing followers, they have no stats whatsoever, but I've been giving them daily beatings to whip them into shape, what an odd game, where the only winning move is to get beaten up.
>>259036685Chris is a weirdo. What did you expect?
>>259036685>Why does armor give me -defense.Didn't you know that you can't move in armour?Chris nerfed armour quite a few times, fortunately he danced back on the most severe ones.
>>259037820>>259037243So should I even bother with armor? Seems like my characters in lighter armor fare better.
>>259038183You don't really need it per se, though a full set of masterwork samurai armour will make your disposable goons pretty sturdy and a few of them can be useful tanks.I usually dress my people based on the theme I want to currently run with so sometimes I end up with a bunch of bug-samurai.
>>259034968This one time a mob that was stronger than me attacked and I had to run away.

Hey could you guys help me out, I have a bug in my game where some of my saves and every time I try to use the guy with a dog start abandoned cities like bast have a lot of their buildings rebuilt but empty. Why is this the case? All the buildings should be destroyed? I tried importing but nothing? Is there anything I can do?

>>259045090Been reported as a bug, some people on the discord mentioned exactly that. A file integrity check and potentially a re-install might be necessary.
>>259045716Do you know how to do a file integrity check on my game files?
>>259047896On steam, right click on it in your library, go to properties and navigate to the Local Files tab, under there is the utility.
there is still a lot of vertex, normals and weight issues but overall they fit pretty well into the models

>>259061979Set up a firing line and bait them into it with a cybered up runner.Or man up and send in some poor sods in the heaviest armour you have and then wade in with some plankfags from the flank.
My understanding is that Kenshi 2.0 means 1.0 isn't going to be getting any more major updates. If that's the case, is there any clear idea what we can look forward to?

>>259067985Here's the skinny as best I understand it. Kenshi 1.0 is the last major update until the completion one of two disconnected milestones which may end up having the same ETA. Kenshi 2 promises for an upgrade to the newest framework the Ogre engine provides, "modernizing" the source code in effect allowing for often touted features like multithreading. This engine update as it is called is slotted to be a part of Kenshi 2 and is then said to be intended for backporting to Kenshi 2. The second major promise was that any small features that can be created for Kenshi 2 with the ability to transfer them to the first iteration will also be a goal. Whatever that means and however that goes will be likely at least a couple to a few years away, if not more. As for the current update schedule, there isn't much of one, they announce minor projects through their news update system and seem to be on a roughly 3 or so week gap between each update. Localization is a big factor, which probably means they're trying to get Kenshi into every single market possible, there are plenty of versions which are nowhere near done. Luxury features are going to remain just that, something you can only hope to see from a modder or in Kenshi 2, there are no other major content updates announced or hinted at, 1.0 is the last openly planned major content update for Kenshi, the next one would then be, if any, the engine upgrade.
Why do I get attacked by the gaurds for no reason in stoat??
>>259071071>backporting to Kenshi 2.to Kenshi 1*
>>259071071Damn, that kinda blows. On another note, is seiging cities a thing yet, or fairly buggy?Also I'm torn between humans with heavy armor, or skeletons. It really comes down to armor. I is dodge effective vs crossbows (or anything for that matter)?
>>259071071I'm just sad that this relatively minor upgrade to Ogre means that Kenshi 2 will still be a pain in the ass for modders and I feel like 2 will be more like an expansion pack to the first game than a proper sequel.I might be just too pessimistic though. A more polished Kenshi and more lore about the world isn't such a bad deal.
>>259071778I'll offer this: The "siege" system requires a large network of considerations that lead to a situation where for the best results in a random environment, tons of resources need be thrown at the cause. The result is somewhere between long-winded stalemates and total avalanches. Can it exist? Totally. Will it be precisely what people want and expect? Not yet, for a time, the system will be bogged down be what might be referred to as event creation. Creating a balanced and effective means for accomplishing the intended effect at all prospective instances leads to tedium. Factions can fight other factions with no trouble at all and with no player interaction required, the longer the player spends in an area, the worse it gets. The loaded area and effects of loading an area as more impactful than one might expect, but how exactly the game is handling everything at once given a multitude of circumstances is outside of at least my current reach.
quick question to save myself sitting here and waiting to find out.If I'm dying with no followers, I'm basically fucked, right? There's no off chance that if I sit here and wait to slowly bleed out that I'll miraculously pull through?
>>259073582The biggest fear is LoFi stays small, they need a little more manpower to grease the tracks.The spice must flow!
>>259073879I wouldn't complain if they went more HiFi. Not too much of course.
>>259073853Often that is the case, which is why a lot of so-called hardcore solo runs usually forgive for the addition of an emergency medic. There's a low chance outside of areas where you're allied (if any at all) that NPCs will save you. Unless you know you'll come to and save yourself at the end of the ordeal, it's settled. Duoing is always better, unless you're straight bonkers levels of overpowered and playing it somewhat safe.
>>259074072I once saw a streamer don't judge, I was at work without my laptop that night, so no games crawl around for almost an hour with no legs and one arm.I fast forwarded through it to see if anything happens but that was it. His live viewers must've enjoyed it.
>>259074436Cripple runs can be fun for a while but I ended up deleting this save.
>>259074072I can't believe it, some random starving bandit just healed me for no reason. It's gonna take forever but my stomach is coming back from negative health.
>>259075794That's Kenshi for ya.
>>259075184>Cripple runsThose can be fun, sure, but this guy was just crawling in the desert, getting beaten unconscious every once in a while after he lost both of his legs in the first few fights.>>259075794At least it wasn't a slaver. Though they'd at least feed you too.
New player here, what's your helmet and boot of choice? I've finally grinded my smithing high enough to get Masterwork on crits, so I decked my duo of martial artists in MW Dustcoats, MW Leather Turtlenecks, and MW Samurai Clothpants.For helmet, I was thinking Masked Helm (no penalty to a useful skill, 100% coverage). But for boots, I'm torn. Even at MW, plated boots and drifter boots hurt stealth. I'm fond of wooden sandals, but leg damage is still too common and too dangerous with only two guys and MA/Dodge around 50.
>>259076897Iron rattan and sandals.
>>259076897Go for appearance. Helmets aren't that important, in my opinion.
>>259076897Tricorn hats and no shoes because we aren't floplegs
>>259079334My first time running from beak things disagrees with you.
>>259052050just got word from Jtesmer and now i can "officially" port ANiceOakTree's Hairstyles to Kenshi, that adds 10 more female long hair meshes, shit's getting good now
Did bulls always spawn in vain? I've been seeing them a decent bit today but don't remember seeing them before.
>>259076897Fog Mask + Drifter's Boots.>>259079843You're doing god's work, anon.
What happened in the last few months in the Kenshi mod community? Any good shit?
>>259038183In all of my successful runs, I'll have a few guys decked out in the best most ridiculous heavy duty armors I can get my hands on, and have them all set to taunt. Then I'll have the rest of my squad usually running around in either of the plate armor variants, with a few people in specialty armors that are for specializations (eg. martial arts bonus or + crossbows). The amount of people I have in heavy duty armors changes based on my total squad size, but I generally run 1 heavy duty for every 5 or 6 lesser armors.
>>259081203Yes. Bulls are a regular spawn there. They have saved me from gorillos on more than one occasion. You just tend to not notice the things that don't eat you because they aren't trying to kill you.
>Prayer caravan comes around>Go to greet them with the wrong guy>Get chastised for not having their dumb ass book>They swear to burn my fucking settlement to the groundThey did.Fuck these assholes.
>>259084081To be fair, in Vain everything that doesn't make numbers pop up over your head blends in like they have stealth cloaks.

You deserve your base burned to the ground, that's pathetic.
>>259076897Visored helmet or any of the Zurkins is usually what I do.
>>259033379that's a cool fucking looking skeleton. i wish they had more customization options.
>>259084375>>259084896In every save in which I build in HN territory, I recruit Griffin, and designate him as the religious leader of my base. I'll build a structure near the entrance of my base, and designate it the church. I'll decorate it with benches, and have beds up top, and whatnot else I can to try and make it churchlike. I'll always have Griffin greet the holy priest, but I'll also keep a storage container with a few copies of the Holy Flame in it in case Father Griffin is unable to be there.No game has gotten me to RP to the extent that Kenshi does.
>>259084896I'm gonna shove that book up Okran's ass.
>>259073674Oh no, I meant as-is in the current edition.
>>259084081>>259084380I turned up the roving squads spawns and nests rates so that's probably why I started seeing them more
>>259087054https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uv_2x6JmuaEI feel sorry for you /BROTHER/, I truly do. You won't enjoy what comes next as much as I will, but that doesn't much matter anymore. Don't think of it as a grave, it's the bed you chose. May Okran help your poor lost soul.

Newfag. Just got the game. Any mod recommendations?
>>259110795sseth's list is decent enough.
>>259110795https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1649794243This one is unquestionably essential. You won't notice any change in visual fidelity, yet zone loading times will drop to a bare fraction of what they were before. My game doesn't even pause when sprinting across the map with this.
>>259110795>>259110991aside from reduced textures there are mods on less intensive weather, no weather at all, some stuff that makes the lighting not as heavy on your hardware and etc. Kenshi is truly FEATURE COMPLETE when it comes to the general performance.
>>259103097>a narko-blessed badassI feel flattered and insulted at the same time.
>>259112130Why insulted desu senpai ?
>>259112340It's like telling someone they are blessed by Satan.

>>259114364Goats used to be worse, much worse. You only witness a fraction of their former glory.

>>259104009I swear, I was dying in front of a dust bandit tower east of the Hub, some starving bandits came by to die to their crossbows, and one of them crouched, I thought to loot me for food.Instead I see my ruined stomach's bar refill.
>>259114648Yeah, but a huge chunk of the population doesn't think like that.
>>259118362HN is about 25% of Kenshi. The rest is UC, SK, bandits, swampers, TH, and everybody else.
The holy nation misses out a lot of good things in their boring little lives

>>259121596give them headpats and send them home.
Alright, I'm two days in and I think I've finally mastered the art of not winning, but surviving fights, and the character growth is actually pretty decent. It's neat to have a game where you need to lose fights to get better at fighting.
>>259126710You don't have to lose fights, it just is more efficient, if a bit risky.
>>259126710technically you are abusing the stupidity of the game. Any real bandits would just cut your throat once you are down, and loot your dead body. The fact that ALL the bandits in Kenshi are so fucking noble makes even less sense than that one city in the Fog islands. It doesn't make sense, Chris!
>>259128205No, most bandits would leave you for dead and really dont care what happens to you if your unconscious. Unless they have a grudge and WANT you dead, they usually wont finish you off if your unconscious/dying in a pool of blood, because your no longer a threat.Throughout ancient warfare, the winning side of a battle would usually leave the wounded losers and loot their bodies for money, and equipment in some cases. They'd only kill them if they fought back and refused to let them loot them. Most of Ancient Greek Hoplite armour was looted from other greeks they beat in battle.It doesnt take a lot to shoot a dying man, but its a lot more brutal and dirty to stab a man to death.A REAL bandit would capture your entire squad, and hold you for ransom from either you family, friends, or organization you follow. (holy nation for example) Because at the end of the day, a bandit wants money more than blood. You could make the arguement that Shek wouldnt pay your ransom, or that UC is corrupt and probably wont pay your ransom unless your a Samurai or higher, but thats a different topic.
>>259129518either I am very xXx_edgy_xXx, or you really think that the bandits are basically noble, cartoonishly kind pirates from old 2000s era cartoons.
>Have a nice group of 8 people>Decide to finally build an outpost>Get swarmed by a fuck ton of hungry bandits with no warning>Almost everybody gets downed quickly>My main guy is stuck fighting the horde by himself>I see a couple beak things in the distance rushing towards my outpost>Holy Nation is coming to visit the next day>I'm a skeletonMaybe I should've waited a bit more before doing this.
>>259130001>or you really think that the bandits are basically noble, cartoonishly kind pirates from old 2000s era cartoonsHow do you get that from "they don't give a shit as long as they can loot you".
>>259130197I sort of assume that you believe that all the bandits are nice and friendly and they only want to rob you with various degree of violence to pay their bills and maybe feed their home pets. I suppose you can't imagine how it is fun for bandits to just gut you because you can get up later, stalk them, and gut them all in return because no-one takes your valuables from you and lives with that.
>>259130631>I sort of assume that youI'm not that anon, I just think you're too edgy.The point of banditry is to get stuff from other people. If they give it to you or they can't offer resistance then all the better.Should I assume you can't imagine that not everyone who's not a law abiding citizen is a murderous psychopath?>I suppose you can't imagine how it is fun for bandits to just gut you because you can get up later, stalk them, and gut them all in return because no-one takes your valuables from you and lives with that.That's meta game knowledge and don't bring it into this.
>nobel banitsThe only ones I've died to are cannibals and they ate poor Christopher. I don't think it's very forgiving in that way.
>>259130631Do you just assume every single bandit is a savage psychopath (Who make up 1% of the human population, mind you) who will have no quarrels with killing a man for no reason other than "Maybe he'll hurt me in the future"? If so, do you think most people, who live a violent and dangerous life, have the time, or planning to get revenge on a random bandit mob out of the hundreds or so that exist? Whens the last time you hunted down the EXACT bandit mob that left you for dead? I only think of characters of diplomatic importance, like Inquisitor Seta or Eyegore, because theyre named leaders.Ever heard of PTSD? Shell Shock? Frozen Trigger Finger? Do you know why people execute others in the back of the head, and not looking into their eyes as they do it?Even people born in constant warzones like the middle east suffer from PTSD. Theres a reason in ISIS execution videos, they either shoot in the back of the head. I've only seen one where they shoot a guy directly in his faces. what makes no name bandits exempt? Think rationally, why kill someone when you don't have to?It sounds like your trying to fortify your point about killing people when you have no understanding of human psychology and how the brain works.
>>259034968>get to mongrel on weak skeleton>decide to try and find some fogmen>screaming in the distance>I must be close>get close enough to hear the monch n cronch>see who they're eating>Shinobi GuardI stopped for the night right there.
>>259131475Perhaps I am edgy, but I also know that if there were no laws - a lot of young men would die before reaching their 20s because there were seen by some pack of power-drunk animals that we politely call 'criminal minded people' that would gladly catch and kill the poor loners. It's not evil if they don't think it's evil after all. From their perspective - it's only fair that they can and should kill those who can't kill them first. Basically - if you don't want to die - you should be able to be stronger than all of them, combined. But this is really not something we should discuss on /vg/.Back to the bandits, though. Why can't they just lift your downed characters and sell them for the Kenshi equivalent of a big mac? It's not a murder, but hey - at least it is relatively evil.
>>259131831Eh, maybe I am wrong. But 1%? That sounds very optimistic.
>>259132240I think you'd like playing Fatal.What you're thinking of hasn't really existed on a large scale ever. We have written records going back to thousands of years and murderhobos were notable enough that they got special mention when they rose up. Remember, bandits were historically often driven outside the law due to circumstances and not because they were chaotic evil bastards who bit their mothers nipples off as babies.Starving bandits just want food. Organized crime knows better than to get a large bounty or too much attention by butchering everyone.>Why can't they just lift your downed characters and sell them for the Kenshi equivalent of a big mac?Gameplay-wise that's what slavers are there for. I wouldn't mind if some of them were savy enough to take you to a nearby slave market though.
>>259134047Neither of us knows how the organized criminals think. For better or worse. Starving bandits probably won't risk bringing your downed characters to the slave markets because they'd basically give up themselves as a bonus. I should have thought about it before, which right now basically nullifies my complaint about the hungry hobos not being ''NOTHING PERSONELL'' enough.
>tfw you first start to win encounters against teams of banditsOutpost building is on the horizon.
stop dying /keng/
>>259140470He's a big bug.
>>259140506You call that big?
>>259128205>noble bandits reeeAll part of the theme, otherwise we'd have guns n vehicles n shit. Taking on absurd odds and losing is 100% an intentional player behavior, shit Chris probably put that in the tips of 3 or 4 skills.
>banditry requires murderhurr fucking durr to the max, petty theft or simple assault are massively more common than actual murder
I'm in the crater, and the beakthing spawns are starting to get out of hand. Every time I turn around there are another 2-3 right behind me, people are starting to go down and there's a brand new nest right outside my last safezone (where I was heading to recuperate).How to escape? Starting to think Micro might be the only way.
Okay so the strongest build is skeletons?But they can't wear like three armour parts, how do they make up for this?
>>259145035FLEEThey can't enter buildings RIGHT?
>>259141620there's a reason bandits often shout "your money or your life" in media. The idea is they just want you to give it to them, which is the least amount of work they could do for your wealth.Fighting is exhausting, not to mention the personal risk of injury, especially in the world of Kenshi, where every child is born wielding an iron fucking pipe.
>>259145643With base-200hp parts. All armor does is increase your effective HP, so you'd have to get 60% damage mitigation on a shek or 75% on a human to make up for their lower natural health. And skeletons can still armor their chest, stomach, and legs (and arms via chest armor), so there's no way the other races can catch up there.Not to mention, where organics bandage up, splint, and then have to sleep while their HP recovers, a skeleton can repair straight to full combat readiness mid-brawl without any downtime.
>>259145035>green as grass>be Hammerhead bug boy>scrape up enough money to have a party of five>2 frontline combatants, 2 flankers and one packmule with a crossbow>scrape them through enough scraps that they're pretty tough>decide we're heading east, to Venge>want to see those united cities>pay a team of mercenaries to get us there in one piece>beat back bandits no problem all the way there>handle the fucking giraffes and spiders>suddenly when we hit the red desert>GOD'S PLAYING WITH HIS MAGNIFYING GLASS TODAY KIDS>get strafed by a pillar of fucking fire What?
Finally the first port (Yundao Hair) is looking playable, a lot of alpha fuckery and re-weight of the mesh, will finish some details later today.
>>259146868misquoted.Also I made it to town with all five party members alive. I basically just slung the downed members over every available shoulder and bolted to town while the mercenaries got eaten by giraffes. One party member limped through the laser fields with a broken leg and somehow won the fucking lottery and didn't get mauled or disintegrated after I left them behind. Wandered into town while I was ffwrding through the night to heal.
>>259146868Don't enter the lands of the broken sun-reflector during daytime hours anon.
>>259145035There's literally nothing to see in the crater beside beak things killing swamp raptors and killing your squad. Leave.
>>259147460I made it through most of the region under nightfall purely by happenstance, then when dawn came with fast forward on.Three of those fuckers zipped through my peripheral vision before I got zapped. Then it was just a matter of mashing space and figuring out how fucked I was.One thing I have to hand it to Kenshi is that it's not all bullshit all the time. Sometimes you get really lucky, and most often when shit goes really bad it's because you cut corners, or got impatient, or got cocky, or all of the above. It's not like Darkest Dungeon, or Fallout mods from the Dust/Frost guy, where for all that the mechanics are satisfying, the devs seem to think I want more and more punishment in the form of unpreventable bullshit, rather than just knowing to pick my fights and watch my routes.
Has Chris fixed this garbage yet?
so kenshi 2 in 5-6 years.does that sound right?
>>259148115Advanced tech that wouldve prevented hillsborough
>>259148115Its chris telling you to stop using killboxes like a pussy and fight them
>>259146002>in mediaCome on. Media would have you think cars explode from the smallest bumps and that cyberbullying is real.
>>259148115nope, of course not
>>259148115This is why you use multiple gates, child
>>259146068>a skeleton can repair straight to full combat readiness mid-brawl without any downtime.And even when wear and tear brings their max hp down, they can just lie down for a few seconds in a skeleton bed to be completely fine.Skeletons are broken. And fun.
>>259148115I wish some magnanimous bunch of modders would put aside making a milionth cheat mod and start fanpatching this game
>>259148249That or we'll hear of delays by then.
>>259148794Remember when you were supposed to collect skeleton muscles to improve their stats? I remember, because that text is still in the game. lmao
>>259148796But dude, what if there was starting scenario where you have a million cats, a party of 10 dudes with maxed stats equipped with edgewalker 3 weapons? Wouldn't that be cool?
>>259149002I remembered it as Chris toying with the idea but promising nothing.It hurts less that way.

reminder to do your culling duties
Anons, be sure to rebind your keys if you haven't. I bound normal speed to Z, double speed to X, triple speed to C and V to toggle the UI. Having a quick key to toggle the UI off and on makes it much less of a pain in the ass to deal with. This is the first game I've played where I actually use the ability to turn off the UI, its great and I recommend trying it out.
>>259153485Okay tell me how to do this actually. I'm stumped on how to actually execute an enemy once they're down but not dead. I had a Dust Boss who just refused to stay down, and was eventually forced to abandon him, to find later thatyes, he did crawl back to safety.
>>259154076Use weapons that chunk instead of lightly slice. You need to be able to drop their vitals FAR into the negative, or hack off limbs, if you want people to die.
>>259154076>>259154565Also, feed them to wildlife. Beak things, spiders, fogmen, they have the power to kill.
>new fragment axe upgrade from Catun 3 to Mk1>weight goes from 25 to 36At this rate you'd need well over 100 strength to wield edgewalker axes
>>259154873you need 144 strength to wield the meitou one
oh no no no no no NO NO NO
>>259155385whewHow the hell am I gonna clean all this up?
>>259155345So you need a couple lifter-arms to use it?
>>259154702This.Alternatively just build a peeler.
>>259155820Are they buildable in vanilla?
>>259155601With more than 1 corpse-burner
>>259153264Personal for now as I test it. Eventually will post on Nexus and Workshop.Gonna take a fucking while cause it's an entire overhaul of the game's balance and alot of its content.
>>259156235Well, no. But it's present in vanilla, you just can't pack it up and move it. I say using a mod for it is no big deal.And your Narkotic fever dreams of cybering everyone up are easier with it. You heathen.
Bro, we do this literally every week, you know who I am.
>>259158482The HN has a few checks it can execute, that one happens to be the "is there a male here?" trigger. It's less obvious because what you're experiencing is what acts as only as a trigger for further raids. If you answered with a woman or "beast" they would send certain raids to attack you afterwards.
>>259158712Every single week. You'd think the inquisitorium would stop wasting their time eventually.
>>259158482just here for the loose women, no men here. Good excuse since they wont go near loose women.
All of the storage options have disappeared from my build menu. Importing doesnt work, Using the SHIFT F12 build menu doesnt work either. What the fuck?
Is there any game start mod that spawns me with nothing but an army of naked nobodies?
What weapon should I give my swordsbug?Already have a nodachi-user, and a heavy weapons user, and plenty of polearmsmen, while the falling sun & plank are a little too crude-looking.Maybe a ringed saber, or combat cleaver?

The man heard that the batteries broke down in Squin. The man entered the battery shack. The man stared at the batteries. Silently. Menacingly. The man left the battery shack and went to Hub for a short while. When the man got back - the batteries were working just fine.

>>259173667I got him out, but everyone got fucked up.Now the anti-slavers hate me
So I'm doing the weapon start thing (with the 20k bounties in UC and Holy Nation) and I really don't want the UC 20k bounty. What's the fastest way to deal with that one? Turn myself in and do the time (is that even possible with a 20k one?)?
>>259179971Get some cash and talk to their pacifier.
I'm torn, should I go for a lone wanderer MA? The appeal of single-handedly killing entire platoons sounds hilarious, but it sounds like a grind, and training DX with MA sounds potentially tedious.
>>259181320DX trains faster with MA than with Katanas.And the real challenge of 'solo wanderer' comes from the real chance of death whenever you get downed. You really need a buddy who can run/sneak in and patch you up if you don't know what you're doing.
>>259180742Where can I find this guy? Seems like a random spawn
Ok, the first batch is done, should be available as "Yundao_hdt Hair V5.5 for Kenshi" in a couple of minutes on the nexus and steam workshop (and mega https://mega.nz/#F!yBlz0STS!VHh0nWQSz4PxtpD6E6mp8w )
>>259128205Makes about as much sense the player also being incapable of killing off enemies they hate.
>>259183353>a game where it is both mechanically AND socially easier to sell a slave than to kill a slave monger
>>259128205Reminder that the fog islands sport highly-defensible peaks, good wind, good metals and very good fertility- wheat clocks in at 107% yield.Mongrel is in a great location so long as the Shinobi can defend it- the fogmen are even beneficial, keeping the HN at bay.
>>259183353>can't kill that harma-hoe character>can't kill anyone I want, periodCHRIIIIIIIIIS!!!
>>259183703Just DRAG THEM TO THE FOG, or starve them.Skeletons are more difficult to break but it can be done.

He also has 0 strength and higher fucking ma than either of my characters.
>>259185320Solution's simple- have him sneak around while you have your other two attack other slaves to catch up MA.
>>259185632The solution was actually kick him out of the fucking squad and escape again. I'm in the floodplains going to burns place.
>>259185891Seriously.Like I usually go about shitting up the HN by freeing slaves, but the moment we are home free I kick those dudes out.
>>259186034Oh if it was a female shek I would have kept her. At least then I can mommy her up later to make up for how much they fucking eat.
>>259186218>mfw I never buy foodjoking aside, it's only 20% or so right? That doesn't seem that bad.
>>259186915you wouldn't think so but early game shek are hard as fuck to keep fed, especially considering most animals will stomp your shit in.
>>259187217Huh, I keep forgetting that the first like, 3 days food is a challenge.At least they can do 2-handed weapons? No idea if those are any good or not.
>>259185320>>259185891Well I suppose you it's too late, but you could have just carried him if your strength, and stealth are so high.
>>259187327>At least they can do 2-handed weapons?Yeah, once you trained them up like the rest of your squad.
>>259187694Could have, strength was in the 30s on both characters but I'm trying not to fill my squad up with a bunch of randoms. Going to grab the uniques that I like and that's it.this is likely a lie since I try this many times and end up grabbing whatever random catches my eye and fucking it all up

>>259194608Over 10,000 will never fade.
....not gonna lie, building inside one of these ribcages would be a good idea- They provide a strong defense against projectiles, free reliable shade, and a superstructure to hang things from.Sure, they'd be 200' radiators but...actually that might be a problem. Or would it?

>>259225942What the fuck gave you the idea that leaving without your shit was a good idea?
>>259209121Don't ever recruit Mercs. If you hire them to guard your outpost, they take your money and run. If you hire them to bodyguard you they follow you 100 yards outside the city and then run across 8 different zones because they aggroed some starving bandits that werent even on your screen and you never see them again.Mid game I have my squads kill mercs on sight outside cities. Late game I capture them and put them in peelers, then occasionally leave them in Gutters on boredom adventures.

>>259230057>There's no food.What do you mean? Just hop out for some meat-on-a-stick when you're hungry.
Alright, now I'm pissed. I allied the HN, where is my state mandated greenfu?
>>259230057If we get into stuff like that for every settlement we might have to start asking ourselves where all these identical iron clubs are being found. I only ever find them on people, so I assume everyone is just born with one under a certain income bracket.
>>259233238That is not an iron club anon. It's the umbilical cord hardened into steel.
>>259233238Just because Chris and Nat opted for "it's a mystery" why certain things are so, it's probably better to not justify things off the laziness of the creator (Okran) read: the FCS. People have Iron Clubs because they're weak and MA is terribly unbalanced at any/all levels of the game (positively and negatively). You could come up with a lore reason for it, sure, but we all know the only reason that level of detail isn't addressed is because "lol sorry, sick of that game, busy with Kenshi 2".

This is going to be one slow-ass game, going to have to micromanage the hell out of this, never had a squad with 20+ characters, I feel like there's going to be a lot of blood, starvation and crashing. I was pretty lucky to spawn next to a crab and pack of goats though.

>>259262474I have no idea what I'm in for, I'm going to try and scavenge stuff for now and trade it for fish in one of the villages, I'm probably going to lose a ton of people to starvation

>>259271353But anon, how does the water flow?
>>259274763Click the game in your library, right click view screenshots, show on disk. Or just use printscreen instead and then open local files and look in the _screens folder.
>>259274763That's common enough, unfortunately. Just import your save and it'll repopulate.

What is it about the early game in "get your ass kicked" survival RPGs like this that is so enjoyable. Maybe when the scope of your world is forced to be smaller you're forced to enjoy what little of it you can interact with safely more.

After corralling some Mongrel guards into a few fog princes, I can buy this Y House in Mongrel. Should I?Also, on a totally unrelated note, where do you turn in bounties from Mongrel? Burn may or may not have been caught stealing.
>>259283197I don't know if any of the neutral cities can have bounties turned over. I don't know mongrel well enough to say, but look around for a police station. If they don't have one, your options are to either wait out bounty time, or serve your prison sentence. Low bounties don't take very long either way.
>>259283197It's a good base, worth it if you plan on vacationing there.PD is the longhouse near the robotics shop, cages are on the roof. You'll have to break a fogman out to put burn in, but you should do that whenever you can anyway. Or at least if you plan any hijinks in the near-future.Don't get caught stealing where you live, it ruins the shop forever.
>>259283530Don't try to turn yourself in at Mongrel by faceplanting on the guards. They only have two cages and they're ALWAYS occupied by fogmen, so if you try to face justice the kenshi way the guards will instead cut you down and then camp your body until it bleeds out. No place to put you, no place to heal you. If only Chris had a 'wanted dead' tag this wouldn't be an issue- fogmen would be left to rot, and you wouldn't have dumb shit like okranites taking skeletons prisoner either.
>>259283000Nice digits>owns animal>shepherdneat
>>259283530>>259283789Looks like Burn gets to test his mettle against the fogmen for a few days. He needs some more combat experience anyway.>>259283558I didn't steal from a shop, I looted an unconscious guard and his buddy saw me.
>>259284057>2500Ouch. Keep D4NK safe, he's his lifeline.
>>259284435D4NK and Beep are sitting in a comfy bar, eating into the spoils. One fog prince head's worth of money gone, and Beep's got himself some decent armor, and decent medkits.

Why Kenshi community outside 4chan are so fucking retarded?
>>259290710Put some food barrels near them
>>259290693Anon, you should consider making manual saves. Maybe 4 or 5, and cycle through them slow- one per hour or so, via over-writes. Leave auto-save on 2-5 minutes. Don't rely on auto-save, you'll lose a game due to some game-killing bug that happened two hours ago, or you'll accidentally switch it off again and lose your whole day.Manual saves, overwrite.
>>259291148also AS sometimes makes crashes.
>>259291148I generally do a manual save at the end of the night when I'm done playing, or when I make a risky decision.
>>259291286Better than none, you had me worried. Good luck with your catchup
>>259291286This is fundamental, but you should also regularly manual save when you reach safe places or milestones in your daily efforts.
>>259291420I didn’t lose much. The new free recruit will be missed, but other than two prince heads, nothing else interesting happened. Triggered the THERE WILL BE CHANGES dialogue, so that just means I need to get back to adventuring.
I'm trying to turn in the Bugmaster to the Shek, but Esata, Bayan and Seto aren't there.If I import the save, they reappear, but the Bugmaster disappears from my hand. Is there a way to import the game and keep the Bugmaster? Is he removed from the game on import or is he placed back in his tower?Would it work if I put him in a cage in my base and then import? Or should I import, go back to his tower and grab him again? would that work?
>>259292974revert to before fight, import , capture and then turn in, there is no way to keep a KO npc/imprisoned when importing.
>>258927972why is the discord so... clean? No memes, no crazy images of sadistic torture, and the HN are seen as default baddies.
>>259293791well, shit, thanksluckily, i've found an autosave just a couple of hours before at least now i know to keep a bunch of separate saves

Threadly reminder to kill all starvers on sight.>>259294146>why is the discord so... clean?no fun allowed is why
>>259281190If you read it a bit more carefully you'd realize job and settlement type are linked. A Mayor can only have a waystation, town, or camp. Only Drifter, Bodyguard, and Caravaner can have a lone shack.
>>259295361Yeah, it's weird. Might have something to do with allowing base skin color to shine through, but added colors at any transparency still come through sharp. I messed around a bit adding pubic hair to the nude mod and noticed its funkiness then.
>>259294146A basic gestalt: The old hats created the Discord server in a time before the 1.0 release, back when Kenshi was spinning its wheels in late 2017/2018 they seems to settle in to a state of affairs that attracted certain people to the administrative roles. At some point, the server was handed over to the current administrative team over the course of the last year, leading to a situation where the discord when from community driven to ideologically driven. Not that it was ever that different, rather, its that those who cared about facilitating retreated from top management into burnout or lesser management roles. As a result, certain figures who exclusively concentrate on community policing have seized their positions within the hierarchy. This all enabled off the back of the fact that they operate first on an internal democracy, nobody gets moved up without passing the popularity contest and second is the political shit test, whereby you essentially need to forsake public image in favor of towing the party line. The admin loves to remind people they're *a discord partner* and "not affiliated with LoFi, but still need to uphold standards of conduct". It all circles around to a half-assed attempt to emulate corporate style dictation of terms, no arguments, no backtalk, no second guessing, buck up or shutup, don't like it, get banned, the admins forcibly hem in and narrow the discussions into their viewings of acceptability only for the sake of flexing their puny powers. They literally have nothing better to do than thought police a community for a game with inherently has controversy written in to it. It's pathetic, as before, they all should seriously consider suicide, it would do the server a lot of good.

>>259221015>edge of the swamp onceCheck out the little plateau on the SW corner next time you're out there, near the grid. It's an impressive cliff, build a tower up there and you'd have a range of 300 yards into the swamp I'd bet.
>>259299735High level crossbows borders on game-breaking, it turns you into a mobile artillery with infinite recourse. If you want to turn Kenshi into a minor micro exercise with little downside, then train up a crossbow user to near max. By then, they'll be able to use all bows effectively, almost always hit their targets, probably have every other complimentary skill (like athletics) in place and can deal an absurd amount of DPS. People comment on MA being unbalanced, but crossbows problem solve in ways all others cannot, they remove the dance and RNG of melee combat in favor of a time to kill style dynamic. You'll probably notice once people have high level x-bows, they're done, the game is beaten.

>>259300202I've been wanting to do a playthrough where I recruit the downtrodden Holy Nation female recruits, dye their hair white, hand them crossbows and armor, and slowly turn them from useless meat into relics of Okran's holy fury bringing righteous fire to the heretics, xenos, mutants. In the Emperor's name.However, only 3-4 spawn across the entire map, so it's a pipe dream at best without intensive modding.
Built a bit of a fortress within my base, as a sort of final defensive location. Fairly useless since the external buildings have outward-facing entrances, but it still looks cool.
>>259302356I know, but that ruins the aesthetic which is the whole point to me. Autism at it's finest, I know.
>>259302128place the watchtowers where the frontal pivots of your wall system is
>>259302525It keeps your design. The only change is moving the connecting walls forward for a uniform outward wall, which is how walls usually work in the first place. Otherwise you allow tiny pockets for enemy black dragon ninjas to hide inside away from your kill zones.
>>259302680The watchtowers are mostly useless, the walls angling in to the door are all mounted with harpoons
>>259298326why is it always like thisevery time an online community springs up, the lefties show up trying to take overthey come about as reliably as ants to breadcrumbs
>>259303605Because lefties are the types of retards who are actually drawn in to 'power'. Places with named accounts they can build in to 'clout and following' like Discord or Reddit are more prone.That's why I get annoyed at this new wave of "join the General Discord!" as it's antithetical to the very idea of anonymous discussion
