I got completely lost the last time I tried to play this, not in a good way. Is there any good content guide? Just walking around and talking to everyone didnt solve much for me, I just need to know what I can do

2c97b5  No.15915083


Since i really lve this game, i´m gonna give you some starting tips since you got doubles:

>First you have to do is to get to a "safe place", like a town or city so you have at least the guards take care of bandits/animals.

>You better move the camera to watch out your surroundings instead of locking it on your character to prevent an encounter with bandits while you are looking for the aforementioned safe haven.

>You can activate popping numbers in the options menu so you can see if there´s some action, so you can get there and loot anything of value to sell or equip.

>I CAN recommend training the stealth stats (Lockpick, stealth, assassination and thievery) but i won´t because this can BREAK totally the game since stealth is broken as hell and beyond, but is up to you if you can manage the low levels and savescumming or running away.

>As mentioned before, you can level up your starts by getting beaten, so better get a new recruit to save your downed character (Mind you, if some slaver see your character inconscious on the ground he will enslave it).

>Getting slaved it´s not so bad. You´ll never gonna starve but you´ll gona be like OP´s pic, they won´t kill you so you can fight against the slavers since they will heal you afterwards and put you in a cage, you can train your stealth pretty quick while you´re jailed and lockpicking. Of course they can sell you, but when you decide to ran away you´ll probably have 50 Lockpick, 70 stealth, 30 toughness… Pretty much you are a pro ninja at this point.

>Probably you want some allies, if you manage to get 10k cats you can pay the Shinobi Thieves to join the thieves guild, so you can use all their equipment/beds and a place to heal and rest for free, also they sell blue/green gear and thieves backpacks at 50% discount.

So I've managed to make a self sustaining outpost and got about 61 members with 18 of them being soldiers. I'm have no clue what else to do since I pretty much have most tech researched. What other goal is there to the game once you did the most obvious one? I'm a creatively bankrupted guy so making goals for myself is ridiculously difficult.

>Start as a Holy Nation Citizen and make my way to the nearest source of copper to sell at 114% markup at 203-204 cats.

>Already plan to establish an ore-running operation that will one day rival the (((Trader's Guild))).

>Add a mod that allows me to "hire" bandits as minimum-wage workers for which I pay them in Greenfruit and Dried Meat, which I later take away from them in the form of "property taxes" as a way for them to remain in my outpost, eternally grateful for the safety I provide.

Also, using the game's included toolkit to autistically tweak out values and item descriptions scratches my inner passion for useless information such as the taste per each alcoholic beverage.

There's a mod that allows you to destroy factions and kill off their leaders but I don't think there's one to start your own faction and take over cities of opposing factions.

2c97b5  No.15915145


If you want to set a base:

>You need to find a place where you can´t disturb the local factions (Bandits will raid you anyway, but you don´t want the Holy Islam or Dindu Kingdom knocking up your doors), also a place with copper and iron (Copper only serves for electrics, you can buy or steal the components or make a mini base on a copper node) and fertility/water for the crops.

>Build the wall faster, a wall is good to keep away the pests. Build the gates in U form, with turrets on both sides to fire directly into the bandits.

>Hemp it´s essential to make good biofuel if you don´t want to rely only on wind generators.

>As for recruits, check out the races and their advantages/disadvantages (Percentages are EXP rate, so they can train faster or slower):

<Human Greenlander:100 life points, Jack-of-all-trades combat wise, 20% with science/cooking/harvester

<Human Scorchlander:100 life points, Good ninjas 20% all stealth stats/athletics, 20% weapon/armor smith but -20% science/cooking/harvest

<Shek:125 life points, 10% strengh/toughness training and heavy weapons but -20% on dexterity, -20% ninja training and working (Science, cooking and harvesting). You want this guys as heavy soldiers/tanks mainly.

<Hive Soldier:Can´t use boots, uses special undershirts, 100 life points, 200 hitpoints on its heads since they can´t wear helmets, 20% toughness training and same exp penalty as a shek, this guy its suited for duelist/glass cannon.

<Hive drone:Can´t use boots, uses special undershirts, 75 life points, 125 on his head since can´t use some helmets, 20% turrets 20% on building and working so this guy gonna get to work. You can make then fight for laughs since their limbs can be chopped easily and be replaced with 220 hitpoints limbs.

<Hive Prince:Can´t use boots, uses special undershirts, 80 life points, 20% dexterity -20% strengh/toughness, 20% science/robotics/medicine, 20% ninja training and -20% working. This guy is for researching, ninja or crossbow user.

<Skeleton: Can´t use shirts, helmets or boots, it doesn´t need food, 200 hit points, 20% heavy weapons but -20% ninja training. It works pretty well but can be a little expensive to repair for starters but overall they´re pretty good as heavies.

>Until your little sad sacks of shit can beat your raids, you´ll probably need mercs to guard your base. You can find them in waystations/taverns in two flavours, cost 1k day to guard your base or 2k day as your bodyguards:

<Tech hunters: Usually in groups of 3-4, stats ranges from 40 to 80 and can use crossbows (Sometimes), hobo looking.

<Mercenary guild: Usually in groups of 5-6 (In The Hook, mercs camps can spawn with 9 of them) with two of them being heavies, stats ranges from 40 to 50.

<If you´re allied with a mayor faction (Holy Islam, Dindu Kingdom or (((United Nations)))) you can ask for the patrols to guard you or your base for free.

>You´ll need power, so build like 5 wind generators and a battery bank for each generator.

And the final post regarding noobie tips:

>I don´t know if the devs have noticed this, or it´s a bug or feature but after you got some outlaw to the cops for the reward and reputationYou can knock up and give it again to the cops, they won´t give you any money but reputation so you can get 100 reputation after delivering the same guy 50 times and get allied with a mayor faction, so you can get bodyguards for freeHoly Lord Phoenix will give you a chalice, Esata will give you her daughter as recruit (Or in marriage, if you like it more), i don´t know what happens with the united cities

>To get ludicrous amounts of animal skins, get a crossbow user with plenty ammo and fuck up the beak things. The trick it´s to keep them as distant as possible without them charging against you at full throttle, not to far from them but not too close. Not only you will get skins, but meat and a excellent crossbow training.

>The same crossbow tactics can be used for bandits and other animals, keep distance but not too much or they will run towards you.

>However, precision shooting it´s only trained by "Accidentally" shooting your allies, a good armor can mitigate the ridiculous damage/bleed (Harpoon resist affects crossbow bolts too) so your shooters won´t do a favour to your enemies.

>Strengh it´s trained with heavy weapons or being overloaded while walking, but dexterity ONLY can be trained with cutting weapons, the higher cutting damage means more experience towards dexterity (0.70 cutting/0.70 blunt means 50% of the experience goes towards dexterity) so use full edge weapons like katanas to train dexterity faster.

>Staffs won´t give you shit experience since don´t weight anything so you won´t gain strengh XP, and it doesn´t have cutting at all so no dexterity XP too.

>Training melee it easier when you capture a wild robot (Broken robots at 50 in all stats), put them in a cage and release them for the beating. You can repair them faster unlike the organics, and you don´t have to feed them. The longer the fight, the more XP your little sad sacks of shit will get.

>Martial arts it´s not a meme, train 1 or 2 guys in unarmed, it´s really worth it and it´s also a good way to train your dex. Artificial limbs give you a boost to unarmed, so you can benchpress a iron clad armored dude with your hands.

Sorry for the broken english, but i really love this game and i wish you to enjoy it as well.

>Is there any sort of end game win condition?

Not really, the few goals that I can come up with is building a self sustaining outpost, bounty hunting, and getting the legendary weapons from faction leaders and bounties. Bounty hunting stops being about doing the bounty for cats since by the time you have people strong enough to do bounties you'll probably have high grade weapons and armor you can sell for all the cats you want. I was thinking about setting as many self sustaining outposts in every section in the map but I don't think the game knows how to handle multiple outposts that well, not to mention of how disastrous it would be making different squads for all the groups of outposts there would be.

This. Holy Merchants and most city merch is pure garbage tier only being useful if you have

ass loads of dosh and need to melt it down for iron scraps.

Even then you still have regular bandit raids so you just melt down their kit instead or use it

for sparring practice against the crippled skeles in your basement.

As for useful weapons you can find some mid tier stuff in the United Cities.

The most inhospitable corners of the world have good shit but as a general rule you should be either crafting or scavenging.

I had huge hope for this game and enjoyed over 300 hours of this game however since the Dev got bored with their project there is no reason to continue playing since the game will still be the same as it was released with no future content planned.

<buy simple large sized (Tier-2) house in well protected outpost(but any will do, less protected could be even better, if you manage to steal some shit and get away with selling it.) to not sleep outside, research basic stuff and train any stats you can(even more if you got mod to build more training tools, which should be included in base game.)

On the topic of half assing things, here are some of the major problems with the game that sort of makes it really suck compared to what potential it could have:

Aside from players being unable to take over cities, NPCs seem to not have the capability to destroy buildings or objects when they invade. They can only attack gates and walls and with limited capabilities. as a result, you can pull shit off like this where it's just a maze and they die before they reach your gate.

-Resource depletion isn't permanent. Most everything respawns, once you realize this everything becomes cheesemode.

-Base object placement is pretty trash, along with pathfinding and terrain mesh needing to be rebuilt because object collision gets FUCKED.

-Pause needs a MAJOR rework where you can't literally cheese encounters by dropping bags, equipping/unequipping gear, repeatedly stealing and getting caught with absolutely no consequences. There also needs to be some real anti-save scumming measures too.

-if you lose your outpost you should lose most of your shit in it too. As it stands npcs can't pick up bags left in the base so you can just throw all your food in a backpack and leave it on the ground and avoid almost all consequences for losing your outpost to bandits. I introduced my friends to this game and this is all they did. 100% avoided all conflict and ran away until the bandits left and they want back with zero consequence. Of course, then they complain that the game is actually too easy.

I'm finally getting into this game after trying and giving up several times in the past. It's actually a pretty easy and fun game to play even though the interface overwhelmed me at first. I do have a couple questions though.

Am I able to get any NPC to join my party by getting on their good side, or only certain ones? Also, how do I finish off knocked out characters?

By hiring NPCs at bar or trying luck in slave shop and be hopeful that they won't run off.

While Kenshi has a lot of mods now, I wouldn't expect one to be actually made.

Besides, if someone truly wanted that, it would be done by now already.

You can also get a mod that allows you to attempt to recruit prisoners after you've put them in a cage, so you could in theory recruit anyone you can manage to shove in a cage and meet their recruitment requirements.

There's not really a way to finish off knocked out characters, the best you could do is either use the "Throw them out" command to have them get removed from your town borders, or pick them up and shove them in a cage with no first aid.



There's a nude textures mod, but nothing beyond that so far.

followed this game since ~2010. It went in a bizzare direction when the dev hired other people, their visions seemed to mix with his and we kind of have a mess of a game with a shitty map now. The original version was obviously way simpler but had a much more solid base and core gameplay loop. meh.

The modding is also a meme, you can edit stats, npcs/buildings and thats it, no support for scripting of any kind and many of the stats are hardcoded in ways that make the modding kit not useful for much. You can add custom items and place stuff but thats not what the game needs.

I was doing some research in a house I bought in Squin. A pack of Garrus came strolling through town and I tried to separate one of them to kill it and take its supplies. Turns out the guards helped me kill the entire pack with no consequences. I made over 30k off the loot. Why is this possible?

im in the same exact situation as op

im about 65 days in with an outpost directly outside the hub nobuild zone to the east. Theres an awesome spot next to the road with natural barriers and an extremely thin chokepoint. Unfortunately the chokepoint is still within the hubs nobuild zone but its still well within range of the turrets on my walls.

Im techd out currently and i need ancient science books. Found a skeleton town in deadlands that sells ai cores, science books, and engineering but my money is kinda tight right now. Every ruin i get maps to is usually a tech shack T9000s that would rape me so it feels like buying upgrades is the only viable option. Found 2 libraries that were relatively safe to loot ignoring the local fauna but they feel pretty fucking rare compared to these tech shacks with murder robots. Ive found at least 10 of them.

i found a domed shaped building with mechanical spiders i think i can take. The problem is i have one super ninja skeleton with stats in the 50s and a heavy weapon while everyone else is pretty average. Skeletons overall feel pretty op assuming they have repair kits on themselves.

GOG gave away Soma for free a few days ago, so I've been playing that. Story is excellent, but the "gameplay" is complete garbage. Forced stealth bullshit, with the hook that the enemies are blind as a bat but will notice you if you look at them - which kind of shits the bed when trying to figure out patrol routes. They can hear alright, so basically all you have to do is to duck into a room, turn off the lights, and go into sneak mode. Then just walk past the fuckers while looking at the floor. There's only like 20 enemies in the entire game, and the "final boss" is literally just "push button to win". And if all that weren't bad enough - the developers even felt the need to add a "safe" mode which makes those enemies non-hostile to maximize "atmosphere". They couldn't even be bothered to put decent puzzles into the game. Very few of them have any sort of clues to solve them, but then, they don't need it. Everything you need to solve a puzzle is either in the next room or right next to you - and just blinding activating switches or picking up junk fetch-quest style will move you along through them. A lot of the "puzzles" I solved because I was just playing with the environment and didn't even realize it was supposed to be a puzzle until either a dialogue sequence started or the game bugged from doing things out of order.

There's plenty of quiet time between setpieces, so why they fuck couldn't they just flip it around and use the "puzzle" solving and dialogue sections as quiet time to expound on the story while using all that time just spent walking from place to place to put some actual gameplay in.

Decent movie, shit game.

Do slave start instead, much better, you end up stupidly OP from all the stealth, assassination, lockpicking, labouring, farming, strength, toughness, dexterity ect grinding you get. Plus you don't need food or bandages.

The storylines that play out in this game are so good. I used to draw and I've honestly thought about making short 1 page comics with different scenarios I've encountered.

>Ashlander lady and random doggo living in abandoned desert town.

>Decide to head east to look for food. We are starving.

>Doggo is just a pup so he's slow af. Throw him over my shoulder and head out at dawn.

>See mountains in the distance, head for them.

>As I approach the foothills I start to see a myriad of figures come into view.


>Huge fucking faction war between United Cities Samurais and Holy Nation Paladins.

>UN is naturally kicking the shit out of the Paladins.

>Perch on a nearby outcropping of rocks and watch… and wait.

>Giant bug things casually make their way towards the fray. They get slaughtered.

>"Dog food for days" I say aloud.

>Make my way slowly towards the battle and start checking the pockets of the dead and dying on the periphery.

>Find some food and first aid kits, some new gear and take some bug meat for doggo. GTFO before anyone notices.

>Keep heading east, Holy Nation territory. Shit. Ahh but what's this? Tech Hunters have a base here too. Intredasting.

>Hole up for a few days while pup sleeps off some injuries sustained by other not so nice doggos we encountered on the trip here.

>Meet Shek lady who seems nice and wants to tag along.

>Sure why not.

>She nurses my injured doggo back to health while I rob the town blind at night.

>I'm fast on my feet so I leave them to scout ahead and see if we can't find a permanent place to stay and perhaps start a new life.

>Find a really nice spot on a river down in the valley. Iron ore and stone as well as farming and fishing potential. Build a tiny house and claim it.

>Head to nearby town I see in the distance. It's the Holy Nation capital. Feeling a little uneasy about it but they are all nice and calling me "sister".

>Send word to Shek friend and she cautiously makes her way to the valley with doggo in tow.

>Meet a down and out ex-soldier in town. He joins the crew but stays in town to research neat new stuff for our budding settlement. Cool dude. And he's strong so he'll be able to defend us.

>Rendezvous with Shek friend at our new digs and get to work after robbing everything we need from these rich Holy Nation merchants. Hire a couple plebs to dig stone and mine ores. So far so good.

>One morning I see a large group of men slowly making their way directly towards the settlement with one especially angry looking guy in the lead.

>He starts to call out for whoever is in charge as he gets close. Reluctantly go meet him.

>He wants to know why I have this "untamed beast" with me. He means my Shek lady friend who is fishing by the river, not the doggo.

>"Uh.. S-she's my slave…?"

>He wants to take her to what sounds like a re-education camp regardless.

>"I'm educating her myself. I totally worship your god… heh"

>He tells me I'm a worthless woman who is incapable of educating her properly and that I need to turn her over to them. can't really argue with that tbh

>They have big swords and lots of armor. I'm faster but I don't think she is. Fuuuuck… wat do?

>I agree to turn her over. But the plan is to break her out later.

>She drops her pack and breaks for it immediately.

>They give chase.

>Helplessly watch as they all disappear over the horizon.

>Doggo limps along after her but I call him back. Literally heartbreaking.


>Meet up with soldier friend in town.

>"Maybe we should move.."

Stealing tbh. You'll get your ass kicked a few times but that's also the best way to get your toughness up. Eventually you'll be able to stealth and steal everything with 100% chance. When I first started playing I'd stay in Clownsteady, steal, get arrested, do time, rinse repeat until I had the money to buy the larger house there and was tough af. It's a really good jumping off point to get to know the game before heading out into the wilderness.

Also there's always some starving farmers trying to raid the place before they get insta-fucked by the guards. Many of them will have bounties so you can carry them right inside and collect the cats.

In DF, the objective is to create a working base, then a great base. In MnB the objective is to survive small raiders then gather land. Just because it's free form doesn't mean it doesn't have a defined initial and long term goal it offers to the player.

71f2ec  No.15956761


To further expound on your point.

In this your first concern is the story when you start (being pursued by the holy nation, being a set of wandered looking to build a base, etc); which gives you a basis to RP from.

After this comes the immediate realization that you must survive the world, you're not the main character, and it doesn't care if you live or die.

Such as, surviving bandits, integrating or adapting to the culture of factions, and increasing your ability to survive; the means to doing this is up to you.

This could be accomplished through building a base, and to build a better base you go on an adventure to gather supplies; which leads to all kinds of stuff.

There's all kinds of ways to approach the "survivability" issue, and all kinds of ways to RP from your initial story.

Although, games like this are definitely free-form compared to "go here do X" games w/objectives, and all people don't have a leader mentality (instead are followers and want2 be given directives); so it isn't for everyone.

>What the fuck is this game even about?

>What should I invest my first money into?

First buy basic bandage kit, then armor.

If you have too much of everything, consider hiring more people.

After that think about buying and rebuilding some medium sized house in Hub, so you could start researching.

Also hire some NPCs in bar to be able to make more work in same time.

>Just level up your athletics and you will be fastest being in Border Zone.

This but make sure to carry the heaviest load you can in a backpack while you run everywhere. You could also carry a body or another team member. This gets your strength up too. If you need to run for your life, drop the pack/NPC.

Also, as far as medkits and equipment go, just hang around in any city that has guards and wait for inevitable plebs to try and invade. If your fast enough you can bait hostile factions to follow you to the city to get fucked by guards Most factions drop at least the shitty little medkits. Also, heal all the guys when they get knocked out, even if they are enemies. It'll get your first aid up so you can heal quicker in a pinch. Sell their equipment, keep the best stuff.

I often park one designated "doctor" at a town's gates and just grind healing. Also, many of them have bounties, so if you're in a place with a police station you can make money while you grind.

I actually just kind of like watching the chaos that ensues when the factions fight.

One time I was stealing from a shop and ran out when i got caught. Apparently the city guards didn't recognize that I provoked the shop guards' attacks and it resulted in an endless war between the shop guards and town guards. The store owner would get arrested every other day leaving the shop wide open for looting. Always fun shit happening in the cities and free stuff to be had if you wait around. I've found it to be the best way to make some initial money and outfit your teams.

Is thieving still horribly broken? I played it a bit like a year ago. You could level up thieving in a few hours then literally steal all the best gear in the game.

For some reason you could make top quality armor, but not top quality weapons.

a2c37f  No.15962635


I've noticed that the guard AI in shops is different now. They used to all mostly head to bed on the roof around midnight, but now they often stay up all night guarding the place. I suppose I could try using a decoy. Send someone in, have someone waiting outside. When they get caught have them run for the hills taking all the guards with them. Send in your backup to clean up the now empty shop. Profit?

But yah if you can get in and there's no guards its still easy to level it up. But it's not really an issue if you don't save scum since the risk is really high that you'll get fucked when your stealth, thievery and lockpicking are any lower than 30ish.

On an unrelated note the disguise system feels really bugged. Did the slave start and eventually escaped through knocking out and stealing some armor.

Now I'm in a town and was discovered but I managed to throw them off and hide on the roof of a bar.

I'm once again fully disguised but the guard is still aggroed on me so he will immediately attack me when I'm seen which will remove my disguise and get the whole town after me.

It's still a joke. I'm on day 2 and have a full set of plate mail, but my strength is like 6 so I can barely move.

Anyone have suggestions on base locations? Last time I was right around the halfway point between Stack and Blister Hill, it had copper, stone and iron. It was a sweet spot, but I'd like to try something different.

There's far too many memesters just shitposting every thread about how whatever topic is being discussed is actually shit and you shouldn't like it.

I'm sure that there's a few amongst them that genuinely hold those opinions, but for the most part it seems to be just contrarian trolling. Don't bother arguing with them since odds are, they just want to shitpost.

There's a few threads that have learned to ignore them and they are pretty comfy because of that.


I've seen someone using a fun technique to steal from shops.

Basically, you need 2 guys, one with high stealth and one with absolutely terrible stealth so the following sequence happens:

>tall, bulky shek with full plate armor enters the shop

>immediately crouches down and starts sneaking around, looking suspicious as fuck, atracting attention instead of going unnoticed

>the guard and the shopkeeper won't have any of this silly business, so they start harassing the walking wardrobe to leave the shop

>horrible ninja shek goes outside, the guard and the shopkeeper keep following him because "what the fuck is he doing, sneaking around while stomping the ground!?!?"

>unbeknownst to them, a clever ashlander moves in

>he lockpicks everything, takes every item it wants and eventually moves outside

>full plate Shek drops the act, everyone goes back to their posts

>ashlander offloads all the stolen crap on the Shek so he can carry such an heavyweight around back to camp

It's almost like a comedy sketch with Laurel & Hardy.

That's because its accuracy is affected by stealth level.

Oh I'm aware, but normally when they spot you they call you out and your UI says that the disguise is broken.

This dude just started chasing me down the moment he saw me whilst the UI showed me as still being disguised, then when he attacked me it finally broke and other faction members noticed me.

It's like he aggroed on me, then when I managed to hide and let the counter reset he never stopped his targeting of me and went after me automatically without needing to do a stealth check.

Oh well I'm further in the game and it doesn't matter anymore. Solved it by waiting for nightfall and dropping my disguise completely then stealthed out of town.

Holy shit, why didn't I think of that. Thanks anon. Brilliant.


There's a few good spots in the southernmost part of the map that are quite close to Clownsteady, Drifter's Last and the waystation between them. Lots of waterways for good fertile land too. Only thing is you need to watch out for the UC nobles that wander with a REALLY strong team of bodyguards. If you even go near them they attack. But you can just close up your gates and wait for them to pass until you're strong enough to take them down. There's a slave farm in the area too if you like breaking them out for free labor or just turning bandits in for cats. I always sort of end up in this general area, altho I like to have multiple outposts all over eventually.

It's probably been said in this thread but I want to encourage everyone who's struggling a bit to get at least one character's athletics up as soon as possible. Once you are faster than everyone else, you can go practically anywhere on the map and be able to run away from danger even with a full pack. This way you can leave your farmers and laborers to their work while you treasure hunt in hard to reach places.

a7f0e1  No.15975670



>Distracting guards

Works great when it does. However sometimes they'll bug and keep turning towards your thief even if you run out of town and are completely unseen.

Guess it can be solved by having two thieves in your squad but so far I've only focused on training one.

a7f0e1  No.15975685

At what point is it worth to start building your own base? I've set up a pretty comfy base in The Hub with a storage house, research building, cooking shack and a rest place with beds and training stuff on the roof.

Just started exploring further away than before to check out other towns to find new recruits and better gear, ended up in Mongrel with a squad of roughly 20 people. It's a great place to get really good items but over half of my recruits are new and weak plebs. Even my stronger characters are only in the 25-35 str range with 15-20 melee combat.

I'm thinking of setting up a base in Mongrel to farm the shops a bit, look for recruits and do some light training. Its a long trek to The Hub and it doesn't have many to recruit and mostly poor items.

a2c37f  No.15975773


>At what point is it worth to start building your own base?

It depends.. but first either find a good spot for mining stone or have a decent amount of money to buy building materials from shops. You'll need mostly those and iron plates to get all the basic stuff built. Sometimes I'll build a small mining camp in a resource rich spot and not even build walls, I just get a couple good turreters and maybe a merc group for at least the first couple days while I set up. This camp is for providing the resources to build a bigger outpost. Once I have a good amount of building materials, iron plates, etc. I'll find a good spot and start building. Get a good fast character and send them on an expedition. Make sure you use the prospecting button to see what resources are available in the area. Have them hang around an area for a bit and see what spawns to get a good idea of what kinds of mobs will be plaguing you. Make sure your teams have those backpacks that stack things. It makes life a lot easier. And have a plan for food. Either town runs to buy it or farming. But keep in mind that farming takes time and doesn't always yield as much as you'll need depending on squad size. How many people you should start with depends on what you want to do. Keep in mind you won't have town guards to protect you when Holy Nation comes a knockin for your Sheks and Skeletons. Turrets are your best friend and you should research all the advanced ones ASAP. A couple good turrets with skilled operators will save your ass time and time again. I didn't really answer your question I guess but I hope these tips help.

There's multiple posts in this thread repeating this story and there have been many like this in past threads as well.

If you're some kind of idiot that thinks you're going to discourage anyone from playing this, stop.

The graphics and gameplay do a better job at that than you ever could, and those that aren't stopped by either of these due to sheer autism will just laugh at how bad your examples are.

But just in case you're genuine…

You should get into combat precisely because your characters are shit. Getting a few beatings increases their skills, and getting their ass kicked increases their constitution.

You're not expected to win every fight at the start, especially when you go against well trained and well armed thugs. But your characters can learn and train from the experience since they don't actually die but are merely dropped unconscious. (Unless you're near some really bad shit)

You can also invest in walls and crossbow, especially since now they can be regular weapons too.

Dunno if it's viable to train your guys one against the other either since that'd be a safer option to stat up.

Last I checked, there was a single faction that enslaved people, the Holy Nation. You can tell it's them because of their incoherent ramblings and since they'll harass you as much as bandits, but they're only a problem if you're near their turf.

You're worried about losing your dudes to something that shouldn't even be a problem and doesn't happen that often either.

Why don't you actually play the game, notice what's dangerous and what isn't, learn from it and do better next time? You don't have to succeed at the first time, the game won't uninstall itself if you lose your first dudes.

>Numbers matter

<2:1 advantage for you is sufficient against people with same stats or slightly higher than you, with equipment on same tier.

<3:1 against herbivore animals, but it will difficult anyway, so you better wait until some animal gets separated, then trash it with crossbows and polearms.

<max you can:1 against predators/hostile factions stronger than you/anything who will eat people if you lose, you need to focus several characters on one enemy, shake them off by running away of their aggro range, run towards to patrol of faction hostile to your attackers or hide in friendly/neutral outposts.

<With animals you can loot them when they get KO'd in middle fight to kill them instantly

>Crossbows are helpful, when used during first strike and on flanks during battle to weaken them further while they are busy with melee fight

>Grind strength, so you won't get slowed by wearing heavy armor, which lowers total damage taken by largest amount and makes grinding toughness much faster. It receives stat exp per hit, but for total damage.

>You can safely hide in friendly outposts during enemy raids, after some time they will get fed up with waiting and leave. However, base can still get damaged and all people need to leave outpost for this to work.

While that's unfortunate you should grind a little more, mainly strength(by taking multiple heavy items into your inventory) and athletics(it raises itself just by walking), so you could break your shackles and just run away afterwards.

Unfortunately, game just doesn't acknowledge this as fact. Too much work to program it in game, I guess.

United Cities economy lore-wise is entirely supported by slavery, unless you help Rebel Farmers and kill all Nobles off, which demands several genocides and bounty hunting in several areas around great desert for the best outcome possible and some their cities get completely fucked over anyway.

>successful individuals dragging their shit economy out of the fucking dirt willing and able to pay all the bribes necessary

The ones on the outside are bandits attempting to raid my base. I ordered all my units into the house and then had one of them build a shelf in front of the only entrance. The bandits can beat down the door but couldn't figure out how to get past the shelf. My recruits with big heavy weapons have enough reach to strike through (green numbers are damage done) and cleave the fuck out of them but they can't do shit with their small weapons.

I also have a few mounted crossbows on the roof, but need to build more.

I don't know if you misstook the bandits for my recruits, but regardless making money is easy - steal everything that isn't nailed down.

Bring multiple backpacks to fill and some carry assistance then level up a dedicated thief that does all the sneaking and stealing. I went with the slave start and only had two characters for some time, I used 'The Hub' as my base for quite a while. Ran to the nearest city, stole as much as possible (many higher quality weapons sell for 2-4k) and returned to The Hub. Sold until they had no money left and stored the other loot in a small storage house I bought. Then I went to another nearby city (shop inventories reset after 24h) and did the same, often brought some loot I stole from the other city (shops don't mind buying stolen goods if it's a different faction).

Other than letting you earn a lot of money, you'll train the fuck out of strength and athletics this way too. Strength levels when walking/running when encumbered, athletics always levels up but faster at light loads and slower and heavy.

Beep is a worthless bugman with no redeeming characteristics.

He starts with:

>Some character interactions


<He has nothing in every stat

<Can not equip headgear

<He has low limb HP

<Is in Mongrel

The easiest way to deal with him is to throw him on your back and sprint to the nearest plot of land outside the fog islands.

Alternatively you could always let his limbs get eaten by fog men and replace them with metal ones.

Either way he is absolute garbage but I keep him around because some of the shit he says his amusing.

>Can not equip headgear

He can't wear majority of these.

At least that city is big enough to train strength just by using automatic iron drill which is in that town and walking around in that city with 90s of iron, while giving piggy-ride to someone in your squad.

Went to Deadlands as suggested, got some mediocre loot from a lost armory my first engineering and science books from a workshop.

Full crossbow scavenging squad is fun, but is there a way to improve positioning? The 'military' and 'caravan' don't really seem to do much at all and it's a pain have everyone follow a single character, especially for combat situations.

But what's a good place to find some armor and ranged weapons? The Black Desert City only has the armory and the robotics shop which is worth looting, the armory had a few nice melee weapons but nothing else. Might check out Flat Lagoon like I was also suggested.


I strongly recommend the mod 'Nekos Clothing Overhaul'.

It adds different qualities to all the armor that doesn't have any and improves/adds bonus stats on them. The straw hat for example gets 5 perception, 1.20 crossbow efficiency and 40% acid resistance. The ninja pants also get some nice stats like athleticism and crossbow efficiency and dexterity efficiency iirc.

Just recently started using it but feels fairly balanced and adds a lot more variety to lighter armored builds.

Oh and it adds various resistances to environmental hazards on pretty much all gear, though some only in the 5-10% range (but it adds up).

I managed to mix and match a whole bunch of different armor on my scavenging squad of 11 members and got 100% on all of them with none of them having the same combination.

Also another mod I'd highly recommend is 'Stackable ITEM'. Saves a lot of headache and is also pretty balanced. Pic from the mod page.

Aim towards buying a house in a town, anything larger than a shack. Use it for storing loot, save crafting items, consumables and food. Sell spare armor, weapons and luxury goods like alcohol and other things which are only used for trading.

Stealing is good money, lets you get gear and stock up on other things you'll need, some anons also mentioned crafting (make gear, sell it) is good but I feel like that'd only be worth it when you can safely build your own base so you can farm all the resources right near the crafting station.

Crossbows are good but needs careful positioning to avoid friendly fire, I like playing with a squad solely built for ranged fighting when exploring/stealing/looting since armor that helps or at least doesn't harm crossbow skill is light and often offers no negative athleticism. As opposed to heavy armor which most melee characters would want to use which not only weighs a lot but also tends to reduce your athleticism.

But earlier in the game I mainly used melee. Now that I have a nice base they get to work and defend it (with turrets backing them up) while my main squad is out and about.

Check out these mods, you might want to play a bit before modding it to get a better feel for why they're good/needed. But some are pretty easy to understand why you'd want them.

You might want to wait a bit with the 'Attack Slot x3', it's really nice (otherwise it'll just be 1v1 and most of your squad will just stand by and watch) but might make the early game way harder before you have some more recruits in your squad. Ranged weapons don't count towards the 'attack slot' (even without mods) so you can have 10 people mow down a single enemy unit in a single volley.

Just fix her with surgery afterwards or make her wear some helmet that covers entire face.


1. Make sure you have enough food for everyone you have.

2. Grind athletics and strength first. 25% encumbrance is good enough as long you don't go too far from cities. If you don't plan to leave city for long time try to carry as much you can.

3. Buy medium/large house in city to use it as your storage/research base/hospital(Make sure you leave one person there though.)

4. Get more people - 5/6 is good enough early game and not too hard on your wallet.

5. If you find someone/something unconscious on ground and no one is around, steal everything from it you can carry to sell it. Just don't try to sell these things to same faction.

Depends on what you want to do. You can thieve, trade, craft, etc. with two people. You'll want to max-out stealth, stealing, and assassination. You won't be able to build much of an outpost as two people won't really be able to defend it.

Will enemies always search out a gate in order to break it down to enter even if it's a long walk, or will that lead to them destroying walls (if they even can)?

Or would the watchtowers be unable to properly target them well, with the tight walls? Would wall mounted turrets be better? Some less tall building?

Other than that this spot is really nice, became as large as it is because I wanted to catch all the iron and copper (4 of each in total) and in the middle there's 100% stone and 100% fertility

Also this was the second latest attack (new one came before I even managed to cleat the bodies from the first), no casualties but a lot of toughness training and some new cyborgs in the near future, one of my bugmen became a double amputee and just lies in bed all day, occasionally see him very slowly crawl over to the food storage. He'll have to wait a bit more for new legs though, still don't know how to attach them. I'm thinking it's the robotics research which I currently have in the oven.

Anyway this unannounced attack is what made me consider building a better defence. For some reason the game doesn't seem to think a hoard of bandits smashing down your gate to be an important thing to notify you about, which made them go unnoticed until they were pretty much in the middle of my base making my walls completely useless and couldn't even buy me time to gather everyone.

I have one gate and organized attacks always stand in front of the gate and say something before attacking. Makes building a kill chamber easy.

pic related it my defense. They try to beat down both doors while the happon guns rape them.

If they get through the 2nd door they are usually so badly wounded my group can beat them without issue.

It's passable as early game defense, when you don't have turrets yet. Also these don't occupy attack slot, so one good volley from strong crossbows will be able to fuck up almost everything except for leviathans and some extra animals from mods.

had a squad geared up via a labor camp set up in the gut shitting out armor and having a few max teir weapons and the tower seems more like a joke but you do get 1 book out of it and that was what i was looking for. started a war with the reavers because they keep sending slaving parties to my front door. had my main 6 guys with 3 merc groups mop up their outpost not sure on how to take on the main bad as there where not any named enemies to see. sorting thew loot now.

grog is free money my weapon smith is free money armorer is free money…. never really bothered with the thieving part of this game but did grind up lock pick and sneak escaping from the slave farm and build an "assassination" dummy and i have to say its broken as fuck. as you can just retry a failure before you are discovered. so i have my bulky ass sheek run around naked thinning out opponents jacking their swords before grouping back up and doning samurai armor…+

ended up wiping the slave farm out just by kidnapping the local noble and walking away for a day. master crafted wasabi and now the other slaver raids come from a bit farther away. managed to even repair relations with the traders guild b4 anything happened.

i need a comic of random player kidnapping a noble only for everything to go to shit the moment she leaves despite none of the guards being killed the gates being intact and all of middle management still chilling out

Realistically, the end game would be to have your own fully functioning city build up from nothing, and not immediately having it raped into the dirt by trash mob waves.

Good job. The worst thing about this is that UC will think that's all your damn fault and will try to fuck your shit up if you build any outpost.

How terrifying.

That's because Kenshi has thing called world states, which will override NPC cities after some NPCs get killed or kidnapped. Majority of time it can't be reversed and/or fixed.

To avoid it you can see conditions needed for city overrides in forgotten construction set.exe

Rest up.

Run fast. If you hit a patrol right out of town kite them back to the guard. They will gladly kill fogmen. One the closer patrol is down you can book it for the holybase or just out of there in general.

If you are feeling really brave you could try to see if you can find a fog prince. His head is worth 6,000 cats.

Is there a big different in weapon types? This has always confused me

a0f0a5  No.16006866


I'm a bit curious about this too, I know the general stuff but maybe there's more to know. Anything objectively stronger than the others?

Been pretty much just given my units weapons depending on their race, robots always gets heavy weapons, ashlander get katanas and crossbow, shek get heavy or hacker, greenlander get whatever and bugmen are meant for slavery.

>Cut vs blunt damage resistance (which you want depends on the enemy)

>Cut can dismember

>Can only wield maces and katanas in your secondary slot (and one sabre, the longsword)

>Hackers have various bonuses specific to units (such as humans, robots, animals) so you can specialize

>Heavy Weapons tend to have indoor penalty and can damage your own limbs at low damage

>Blunt weapons are less lethal as they don't cause blood loss or dismemberment so can be used to capture enemies easier (though never found a need for this, easy to patch them up)

str = more blunt damage

dex = more cut damage

And then of course there's the different lengths (can hit more enemies), attack speeds and damage.

a0f0a5  No.16006880


Oh and there's polearms I guess. Not used much since most of my dex heavy units are using ranged weapons primarily and therefore need a short weapon in their secondary slot. I've got a few units with polearms but haven't watched them in action.

Guess their selling point is reach.

The weapon bonuses on some items are pretty good.

Generally speaking, a weapon's -weight- really matters in terms of how effective your characters will be when wielding it. You need about a 2:1 ratio for strength to weapon weight to use it effectively, otherwise you get a steep attack speed penalty.

You're right about str and dex and what damage they do, which is why POLEARMS are some of the BEST early to mid game weapons as they level both stats, do AoE damage at decent range, and have armor penetration while being relatively lightweight. Your shitter troops can actually hold their own with them.

Most of the weapon types in the game are good for a specific role, except for sabers and blunt weapons. They're hot garbage. Their damage just doesn't scale and the bonuses that they offer are overshadowed by other weapons. (Exception being the Spiked Club for the meme bleed damage and Desert Sabre). Every other Sabre and Blunt weapon is useless.

a0f0a5  No.16007741


Cool didn't know that the weight influenced weapon handling if low strength and I'll hand out a few more polearms to weak fucks. Never used blunt weapons luckily, they just looked sort of bad and haven't been as plentiful in shops and only 3 or so use sabers and they're all sweet edge desert sabres I stole from the robofucks.

What would you say are the best lategame weapons? Seems to me like katanas are the strongest all around ones with no direct downsides, I mean you can probably squeeze a bit more damage out of your weapon if you constantly switch depending on what you face (like desert sabre or falling sun or most hackers) but that can be a bit of a bother. And when you say they don't scale, do you mean literally or just poorly?

I tried to raise characters to be the masters of every weapon category before ranged weaponry was a thing, and while they reached about 70 in their respective weapons, the ones that shone the most were the Martial Artist and the Heavy Weapon user, both of them taking out like twice the enemies the others did.

But if you meant the specific weapons they had equipped, I'd have to launch the game again to answer you.

Hungry Bandits are the best early humanoid enemies to fight and train against, Dust Raiders are (relatively speaking) much tougher. As for making your own outpost, you probably want a few more recruits first and get a bit stronger so you can defend it properly. Also doesn't hurt to start hoarding some crafting supplies such as 'building material' and 'iron plates' to make it easier setting up your base later on.

Thanks, I wonder why these aren't more popular and why other modders haven't tried a similar concept. Many mods seem to have 10 different versions doing a similar thing.

73aadc  No.16011269


By scale I mean that higher weapon grades get overshadowed by damage from other weapons (that have better bonuses).

I haven't used all the weapons in the game, but from what I've tested so far these are my personal favorites:

1)Falling Sun does the best raw damage because it scales from both str and dex.

2)Planks are my next go to because it still retains some cutting power but has extra range

3)Heavy Polearms, good all around

4)Nodachis, good for fleshy things

5)Fragment Axes (which have the longest range, but require monstrous strength to use), also might get a hidden bonus against robots. But a real fucking pain in the ass to actually train, so I only have one person actually using it. But she tears assholes with it.

Some Hackers are decent as well, but generally speaking I like it when everyone is able to dish out AoE damage, because it all just stacks together since you never really fight anyone 1v1. All the weapons I listed are able to AoE very effectively and have decent armor pen. Special shoutouts to Paladin's Cross (despite being a hacker) for deleting Iron Spiders in a single hit.

An opponent that is 25 or more levels below you will grant very little experience gain. The character's level is actually calculated through their melee defence (or martial arts if they're unarmed).

Personally I use a mod that changes this to 50 to give a bit more leeway and not make fighting hungry bandits a total waste of time later in the game. It's called "Weaklings Give XP".
