But you're gonna need a big party for it, even one of my best guys can't take more than 8 fogmen on his own, and there's pretty regular hordes of them rampaging around, especially where Fog Princes appear.

Also fuck beak things. Why the fuck do they do so much damage? Pretty sure it's armor piercing too. I just left the fog islands now, hoping for some more decent followers and intrepid adventures in the shek kingdom. Anyone know where the Pre version 0.7 or so map is now?

<actually not that you mention it BD ninjas and dust bandits do come too, so actually five different groups just rotating on me like a bitch salad but usually 2 or more groups at once.


I've played this game hundreds of hours, several times starting over with new groups and grinding until everyone has final tech gear and at least everyone in 50s. Right now, my guys are atleast all in 30s (all 22 of them, my original group of 8 got sidelined while I brought in a new generation and it has taken forever to get them up and going) and using mk1 weapons and specialist armor. I'm just not catching fucking break from raids. The first 100 days or so this base was fairly boring and I held it with just 3 mercs from a way station from almost day1 after about day 50 until day 100 it was easy to hold with just my 8 guys.. now I'm just like in the middle of Afghanistan or something everyone wants a piece. I wish the opposing raiding groups would at least fight each other. What I don't fucking get is why my toughness and weapon skills are not actually a fuck load higher than they are as pointed out it's day 147

>I've played this game hundreds of hours


If you wanna flex I've been playing since 2013 get on my level skrub

As for the rest, guessing it's because of one of the updates/break in the code? I don't know, remember having a fairly sizable base way back in 0.70 or so and getting raided every couple of days. Good way to train the rookies. I find it interesting to note that even on full release things are still a little bit wonky-like. Don't think there's anything truly game-breaking/crashes in here now though which is nice. And tbh I think it's better to have an army of medium tier dudes than less than 20 special ops guys. It's so much easier to level a noob up to 30 or so than level up much past 50, and even at 50 you can still get hit from time to time. Damage is also spread much more easily, and it's generally a nice counter to getting raped by fresh spawns if you're already in a fight.

Only downside to having loads of guys is that your party consumes astronomical amounts of food, but food is of course, free, courtesy of the wildlife.

As for solutions to your problem, I would say your best course of action is maybe go townhopping with one/two of your fastest guys, give them some trade items and sell them to some bars. Recruit some noobs find unique NPC locations Crumblejohn is a fucking MUST. Seriously. That guy starts with 60 fucking strength and pretty decent stats. and bulk out your numbers. That way you could also probably have a stay at home team and an exploring team. My final plan in this game is to wage war with the holy nation, so I know I'll need top tier guys, weapons, armor, plus about 200 dudes. I have a squad limit mod. But right now I just wanna explore as much of the map as I can, because I don't want to split my current forces between building and exploring. Good luck anon.

That shit was unbearable for a scrub like me, yet I refused to move anywhere else because I found the perfect spot for me personally.

In the options settings you can turn the rate of incoming raids down.

I did and now I get raids every few days.

Good luck neighbor! Also a moneymaking tip for swamp boys like us is that you should start making hashish and selling it to the shinobi theives in the great desert for a 700% price markup, you can easily make dozens of thousands of dollars per run through the cities as long as you also have a shitload of hashish on you.

Every Kenshi bread there is always anons losing with their 20 man squads during base raids.

Looks like you retards are making poor choices in weapons/armor, not enough training and pissing off every minor faction possible before setting up a base.

Seems to confirm for me that smaller squad games are the way to go, they forge stronger characters and force you to consider weapon types that compliment each other.

I've had essentially no problems defending mine (apart from against retribution of god attacks) with as little as 6-8 people depending on if some of my guys are out. Good gate placement with harpoon turrets can cut down the raids by about half before they break through, then just a couple decently trained people with heavy weapons can easily aoe cleave through the rest, usually backed up by martial artists.

In theory it should work, I've seen lots of people also cheese by making a maze with furniture. Not sure exactly how it works but sometimes if the path is too long they'll target the walls directly too. I've also had raids stand directly next to my gate and decide to attack the wall next to it sometimes but I think that's due to the constant navmesh issues.

Speaking of trenchcoats, I ended up loading a hardsave before wasting my impromptu cult following at the gates of Bad Teeth towards the end of last thread. Picked a smaller target, one of Holy Mines. Went much better. Rotten abrahamic fuckers barely had anything worth looting, though. Typical aesthetes.

On a more serious note; I need some advice on Crumblejon. He was one of the first guys I recruited in mongrel, is one of my strongest characters. I could easily greentext a few stories where he personally got the gang out of a scrape.

I didn't discover his shameful NTR fetish until late in the game. I feel betrayed. I actually have a crucifixion mod installed and I was considering leaving him nailed to a cross on the top of some mountain for his cuckoldry, but I've built him up to be to valuable to the team.

I was totally defending early game with exactly 8 people. Last thread I was insisting to stay at low numbers because my first game that went to max was 28 people. 7x4 squads. Last couple of games I just went with 8 but a lot of people are like omg256fun so I broke down and went 22 because that is the biggest number the UI looks good with. I can't explain the vast influx of raids after that point, but yeah I got my shit wrecked for a while.

I really can't decide where I want to settle on my current playthrough, my main goal is to find an area that is nice to look at, no acid rain and moderate to good resources and farming potential (though I do have those hydroponics). I don't mind a bit of danger as it gives me another reason to build a good base defence.

I like Shem but I've settled there before and might want something new. Many of the Holy Nation areas are nice and lush and I'll probably make an enemy out of them at some point anyway. How prepared would I have to be if I want to settle in their region with 1/3 of my party being skeletons?

Dust bandits are actually where the turrets are most effective since they go down in 1 hit. No need to even fuck with the ai, just a simple 2 gate system and you're looking at about 20 kills in the 10 or so seconds it takes them to get past both gates, just with 3 or 4 people on basic harpoon turrets (well trained ofc). Even after they destroy the gate there's an opening animation which takes a good 3 seconds to complete before they actually get inside so it doesn't matter that the gate itself goes down in a second. Combine this just with a short run between the 2 gates, doesn't have to be a mile long maze and it's pretty effective. Also, I've found that they stand around outside for a little bit before actually starting the attack which gives you a chance to pick off at least a few before they even start.

The real problems are when actual well armoured enemies attack like the holy nation, shek etc since the harpoons will do so little damage to them and they still hammer down the gates in no time. I've found that the shek seem to attack with WAY less people though for whatever reason and so have never had too much trouble with them.

Just let your puny meat sticks fall off, robotics covers all situations.

Want to go sanic? Put on scout legs (pic related)

Want to sneak? Put on stealth legs.

Want to fight and the two above aren't tanky enough? Put on some KLR series (275 hp).

You can even swap robotic limbs in the middle of combat in case they actually do get damaged.

At the end of the day, I really didn't feel like wasting a bunch of time with any elaborate sacrifices or suicide missions, and I decided that the best cure for cuckoldry is just a little bit of backalley brain surgery courtesy of the shinobi guild. Judging by his posture I assume the operation was a success. I would like to go on record and say that I also support trepanation/lobotomy as a cure for cuckoldry in real life as well.

>how many guys do you think I'd need to take down Bad Teeth?

One if you have a good ninja :^)

It could be done under 10 characters if you're just rushing the town, probably 60s-70s, with some having weapons for armor penetration and crowd control.

But that's for a normal squad, its going to be far more brutal to send nothing but skeletons to fight, high paladins will probably fuck your shit up before reaching Phoenix.

0f8520  No.16083466


what do you consider crowd control weapons?

2cfd90  No.16083528


Characters with properly trained stats for heavy or other long reach weapons like polearms, the longer hackers also do an okay job.

Dex is an important stat to train even for heavy weapons, since it effects overall combat speed after you clear the minimum strength requirement.

0f8520  No.16083694


out of sheer ignorance, how do these weapons handle the mobs better than someone with a katana/saber/spiked club of the same stats?

0f8520  No.16083696


(I had hoped that cross-training and using a variety of weapons was beneficial because that is what I do, but I've never really heard why for example heavy weapons will help win a fight)

460b3a  No.16083824



Cross training is very important.

Start off people with Katanas, some shitty one's. It will train STR and DEX, leaning more on DEx, but that's okay because STR can also be trained other ways. DEX only trains attacking with weapons.

Once you have enough STR, you can equip Heavy Weapons. The high STR will give you a great damage boost while having high DEX will increase your attack speed (something you desperatly need on such heavy weapons).

Now, why are they good for mobs? Put simply: Kenshi actually does weapon collision (or something so close to it I couldn't tell the diference). So when your shek-lady swings a Plank around, it can hit multiple people.

So imagine that after several hours playing, training and gearing up, you find yourself travelling. 7 bandits show up. They want your shit and they want it now.

Shek-lady takes a single swing… and hits 7 guys for 170 damage. 5 go down instantly because of the lack of legs or an head. Or the torso turned to graffiti in the sand.

The two lucky survivors just saw their arm fly off and try to attack anyway, with severe penalties. Shek-lady parries once, parries twice and swings. The Beak-things will not go hungry again.

On the other hand, if you go up against too many people, even with high DEX, the Heavy weapons are too slow. If you're surrounded by 12 dudes, you will DIE from a thousand cuts, as the Japanese say. You'll be stuck parrying for hours, while they get an hit in here and there. On the other hand, someone with high enough melee defense and good armour can take advantage of this. Load up a backpack with rocks until emcumbrance is ridiculous then pick a fight with the local rape-gang.

You'll need some rescue to get out of it, but I saw a single greenlander last 30 minutes (realtime) against 12 guys armed with clubs.

Just have someone nearby to break the gangbang once your STR hits 80 or 90.

This. Or they're not paying attention to their turret tech. The basic shitty crossbows have a significant variance and are pretty god-awful, but the T2 ones (not even harpoons, just T2 crossbows) have flawless accuracy.

>>16094988 (heil'd)

How are you having trouble with a base group? Set up basic tasks for everyone and you can have food fully automated.

Shift+rclick an item with someone selected to add that as a permanent task. Set up farmers, I generally do 1 farmer for 4 fields but leave overlap for crops that come in at the same time - every field should have two farmers total. Then set up similar automated tasks for anything in the middle, like grinding flour. Have as many automated cooks as you need, and then most importantly, set up a couple of haulers with tasks to auto-haul to food barrels. Let it run for a while and make sure that you've got enough fields to result in a food surplus, and your base will run forever. If you keep skeletons only on turrets and have a few people with the engineer turrets, you can even ignore bandit raids provided you've got the necessary firepower.

If you've got 50 people and a base and yet you still have to buy food, you're doing it terribly wrong. At that scale (shit, even with 10 people and a base) you should be treating the game like Rimworld.

Oh, and to decrease base food usage further, make a comfy tavern with a bunch of chairs and beds and shit, then make the last order in all worker queues to sit in a chair or sleep in a bed. Hunger rate decreases when resting, so your idle workers will eat less.

The was about 200 days ago in my game, I think mostly that early game turrets/gates are meme, because they break so fast, but I would say mostly that I needed someone clearing corpses/throwing people out/doing medic and after not having played for a long time I was pretty rusty on base mechanics, also I probably just tried to build a base too early and considering the slight balance changes in the last few versions that's a bit harder task, not something you should do while still weak.


It's not a problem of food or money, half the problem seems to be CPU, running a group at base and outside of my base seems to cripple the fun. The other half is I've just trained an additional 25 people in all the training available plus geared them and just feel a bit meh, I know that my original group could have already been an unstoppable killing machine if I had just focused on them.

I normally have this issue too, i got a nice base with 10 workers, some guards and a good adventure squad ready to make the world comfy and then i fucking start a new game because i got the itch to start anew and do it better from the beggining, and i already did this 6 times yet i´m still thinking i can do it better, now with a swastika shaped base.

Overall, make more farms if you need more food, put them in auto-mode, and for gear go full ninja/samurai or make your own uniform with colored versions, capture a swamp ninja/red sabre/holy nation inquisitor/flotsam ninja and put them in cages, and equip them with the dyable items, or move the entire base into a darker territory for maximum stress and fun.

I recommend this mod, really nice QOL.

Everything in your inventory/bags stacks in sizes between 5-10. In chests some stuff like Building Material and Iron Plates go up to 20 and a few things like raw and foul meat up to 40.

Ammo and food stack to 10 unlike what the screenshot suggests.

its even better as slavers will slave each other if they find them in the cages.


you know raids don't happen unless you are looking at them right? like a cannibal raid will wait for you to "look" at your base before they go hostile, meaning as long as you don't look you can get away with marching your main group all the way back home from the ass end of the world as long as you don't move the camera to close to the raid. (this can result in multiple groups waiting in your killbox at the same time and sometimes they just kind of sort themselves out ) also you can just "sneak" into a corner of your base and let it happen. its not like they break anything and the only thing iv'e ever had looted was food. i mean shit how hard would it be to have the ai go all sorts of scorched earth on the players base if they pissed someone off enough, not starving bandits looking for a meal but like Holy nation raids or UC visits, i mean hell the worst that happens is when river raptors wander into your farm.

I know what your saying but look isn't the right word, raids happen if anyone is in the base, looking at it or not.

iv'e done this multiple times in the current version the raid will show up wait in front of the first gate you made and wait to be loaded in. via proximity to the camera. then when they are loaded in they will snap the camera to them and give their dialog and then go hostile.

who knows maybe it's a bug introduced by my settings. iv'e come to abuse it a bit to fudge allied reinforcements and be able to move my main squad back to back up the farmers.

I get raided all the fucking time, my secondary squad is just finally able to handle defense in Shem against all-day beak things and large (15/40 person) peon raids. I almost never "look" at the raid unless my squad tab shows multiple KOs. That is the way it has been for me from .96 to 1.12.

However, if I leave a base completely it will not be raided until I come back and honestly I think that isn't right so part of the immersion of holding a base for me is 24/7 defense.

ahh wild animals will wander around being hostile and yes will be triggered regardless of camera but…. the cannibal raids that are spawned at one of their camps and march towards your base…. or the holy nation raids, or slaver raids, anything that you get a warning that they are headed towards your base. while not the opportunity attacks that hostile stuff just sort of throws at you. wandering bandits or beak things, gorrilows, land bats. but all that shit disappears with a wall and a maned turret

No no, you're completely right that the scripted raids can be delayed, in my experience they require both a character to be near enough and your camera to be in the general area.

But like you said the roaming squads don't give a shit and some of the larger ones will require some micro managing or an amazing gate defense setup.

What's some armor that's good at protecting your stomach for a martial artist?

Currently using Dark Leather Shirt and Dustcoat which are mastergrade and provide 100% stomach protection alongside Samurai Clothpants at specialist grade giving another 50%.

I've noticed that it's always the first part to go and get me downed despite armor focused on protecting it. Maybe I should get some heavier stuff like a chainmail.

Also anyone else think x3 attack slots is a bit much at times? Especially for my PC I feel like I spend 10 seconds dodging and if I'm lucky I get one attack in and this is despite having a mod that reduces the dodge animation time. Most weapon users seem to just power through many attacks instead of spamming block.

It's only a problem when greatly outnumbered and more so with martial art than weapons.

Tried to solo 4 Bonewolfs with my martial artist that had 3x their stats once. My character spammed dodge for 2 minutes straight without getting time to attack a single time and then got downed from chip damage by the occasional bite that slipped through.

I have 65 dodge. I'm asking because when my stomach hit 0 health, my second highest body part (my chest) was still at 76 which means my stomach defense is a huge bottleneck for my survivability. Probably managed to kill 10+ before I went down but the dodge spamming without getting attacks in and my stomach defense being so weak really fucked me over.

You can get postive reputation for first-aid. (faction) (check squad button- faction) this way but they won't join you.

I've learned they're retarded. This bandit serves her sentence, and as soon as she is released she attacks the medic who healed/set her free. He then chops off her arm, and she tries to limp away, all in front of me, mind you, until a guard runs in and they finish her off by lopping off her leg and knocking her unconcious, only to chuck her dying carcass in a cell again. I don't know why I did it, but I felt bad for her, so I used some of the first aid supplies to tend to her wounds. It said dying the entire time, so I was curious too if she could make it. She just changed from dying to crippled. Before her blood was in the negative digits and it just went back to positive. Fucking bandits are retarded.

Expanded my base to take another lake because fuck you.

Have the recruit squad start in the barracks with melee-15 (dummies) and medicine-25(med kits), now they are dragging copper ore across the base with overloaded rucksacks to get strength to 30, they all have wakazukis so they can focus on dex and when a raid comes I put the recruits up front for toughness training, assuming they don't die I'll go back and train the thief/assassination/lockpick.

Which zones do you guys think are the most comfy when it comes to how they look?

Shem is up there because of the chill oasis feel.

The Hook is pretty decent too with some more plantlife and decent climate.

The Great Desert is okay, I really enjoy the bright sandy aesthetic but the geography is a bit 'samey' with its endless dunes. Looked around Spine Canyon but didn't really find a good spot to settle down.

Okran's Pride is nice but I'll probably have to holocaust the Holy Nation or do a human only playthrough and side with them (tempted to do one of these).

Many other zones suffer some bleak or weird lighting which either feel depressing or just get plain annoying.


Can I just use the 'debug' mode or whatever it's called to move iron/copper deposits so I simply need to find a place with decent stone and fertility? Going to give it a try next time I play.

if you settle in these areas these factions will bully you for money, its not much, i think like 2000 cats/week or something. it is irritating though. and if you dont pay enjoy being raped by samurai killsquads

I'll put turrets on the platform and force enemies to circle around to the other side. I'll have farms and mines on the outside of the inner walls which are then obviously protected by outer walls as well. Maybe I'll only have them accessible from a bridge leading from the platform.

You can actually, contrary to what most fuckwits seem to think, politely talk with the Holy Nation to get out of trouble 99% of the time. You can bring non-humans into their territory you just need a Greenlander male, preferably with a copy of The Holy Flame on hand, to explain to the paladin that those filthy darkened are just slaves. Even if they launch an attack on your base, you can send out a representative to talk with them and explain the misunderstanding. They are usually pretty chill. Heck, once you get on good terms with them they give absolutely zero fucks about what you do. The only exception is skeletons, those are always KOS.

So, after the shek beat the shit out of bandits, can I heal and carry the bandits to the shek prison area for some cash?


Dust bandits, then starving bandits, then dust bandits, then goats. The goats weren't hostile, but I was hungry and thought they'd let me kill one of them. Nope.

any npc you get cash for will have a bounty price when you click on them over their name/faction area on the bottle left of the screen, often one of the bandits in a squad will have something like a 2k bounty.. if you want more you need to get uniques. there are many ways to get money you can even set up a crafting shop in your city house and sell the shit you make.

just put everyone else on passive, there's also a mod on the workshop that allows you to make training weapons that do no damage which you can give to the character you want to train as well as the unlucky hungry bandit you plan on beating up for endless sparring. as for training areas, large empty buildings are usually the best for this purpose as they might get stuck behind workbenches if you have any around and it might be a pain to pull them out if they do get stuck.

"Passive" was the right answer, I didn't want to "hold" them because they have work to do.


Such armor would be a very simple mod for anyone with the skill, since Kenshi 1.X was just released I believe you will be able to find new mods (and even lands) for years to come.

You can speed that up considerably if you also have them carry bodies, carrying bodies doubles your gains. Just heal up then carry some bandits unfortunate enough to cross your paths for weeks on end crossing the countryside!

Pay no mind to the bandits shrieks of terror, those are actually shrieks of JOY! Joy that they are able to help you get some immense gains! It's not weird, crazy, or bizarre at all!

Today the guards killed a two monsters and left them to rot at the gates, it provided us with enough meat for a couple of days more. The land around is torn by various battles, being homeless and without skill we were reduced to scavenging the battlefields, that seemed to always consist of either a group called Reavers or Glass Pirates. This afternoon we killed a man.. he was already injured but intent on doing us harm.. I had katana that I picked of a dying tech hunter and with the help of the girls we poked him to death.

Me and the girls were lucky to survive it.. lucky to make it to Brink and catch our breath. Now with the help of our scientist Izumi and Riddly, our thick guardian we are learning to survive. We have set up in a hut next to the gate, it is our home and it is ever crowded. Often times raid come to the gates and we assist our adopted home. A day ago we saw a tech hunter go down away from the gates and killed the Reaver responsible and healed the hunter. Hopefully I've repaid my secret debt to their organization.

Did you started a new game, not from the main menu but from a already existing game? I did that, every city was empty but my old bases were there, so i raided myself before import


The three main factions hate you at first honestly and have pros and cons so technically no one is really perfect: Holy Islam hates tecnology and women but the holy priests and inquisitors have pockets full of hashish/bloodrum, the (((United cities))) pretend to be shogunates but act like bugmen to be fair, feudal japan wasn´t exactly a utopia, and the Sheks are pretty much your standard orcish like race without the "noble" since they will atack you sometimes for shit and jiggles.

But once you managed to get allied with them, you´ll become best buddies, really best buddies, so the Holy Islam will allow you to have robotic limbs and even non human members with you They´ll attack your skeletons anyway, not recomended for multi-race minmaxing gameplays tho, at least mine and Holy Phoenix will reward you with a chalice valued in 30k cats.

If you become allied with the shek, they will name you "The Invincible" like a true warrior of Kral, and Esata gives you her daughter as a recruit So send her to her place, the kitchen, also it´s heavy implied that Esata isn´t the real Shek leader but Bayan, since this one is probably the only inteligent Shek around and Esata is pretty much a smoke screen to prevent a rebellion since the sheks are a suicidal race and the war against the nobles and the okranites could end in a extinction, so Esata made a truce with both nations but there´s still a grudge between the Shek and the Okranites.

Now i´m doing a (((United cities))) playthrought to see what can offer me, but pretty much nobody will ever treat you nice unless you work hard for it. Make sure the Samurais don´t see you starving, being poor in the united cities is punished by law

Are there any downsides to recruitment by slave buying? It's cheaper, you get more of them, I guess it's annoying if you don't hang around UC.

Currently have about 15 people and a pack bull, a walled in mine with copper and iron right next to a town, and basically no combat skill. I'm going to just research in a bought house in town and then train up a good squad with dummies. After I know I can beat some bandits I'll start my own town.

I think borderlands is the natural place for most people to settle first.. but nowadays the black dragon ninjas like raping bases anywhere in a five region area, if you kill them first though you will be fine with the other shit (2 leader's has a 20k bounty) and that isn't going to be easy, a squad of 15s with all 20s might be able to do it, settlements are a lot harder to start than before IMHO

idk so many of them run so the "cheapness" dissapears as you have to buy more effectively multiplying the cost by the run rate.

and as far as base building goes you can hire several squads of mercenaries and clear out minor faction heads, red sabers, dust bandits, black dragons Brotherhood of Bones gets a special mention here do to distance from the waystaion and how low level they are. and you can make all the money back by turning in the bounties.

Skeletons are my own speculation here from what I've seen so far There's multiple empires, the first empire was a bunch of space colonists, second empire was some lesser colony possible after a war passed the first colony. The skeletons are robotic slaves and humans put into robot bodies who's flesh has totally worn away but mostly slaves to the pre-second colony

In the Venge area I'm not kidding had satellite laser beams rain down consistently & robot thralls, robots with heads I guess constantly run around, a city I saw prior to that called Mourn was in the frame of a fallen MASSIVE spacestation.

Hope you grabbed some Edge 3 weapons on your way out. So far its the best weapon shop I've found and tends to have 4-7 Edge 3 weapons per respawn if lucky. And has one of the best skeleton limbs shops too (other one I've found would be in Mongrel)

Also protip for dealing with carry weight: Other characters always weigh 30kg no matter what's in their inventory, slap 3 large and 4 small backpacks on a character and and carry them on another.


>Do animations change depending on how good you get in the stat corresponding to them? Cause i've gotten pretty good at stealth and I run like a ninja now

Somewhat. Martial Art gets more moves but I believe the other weapon skills don't. But they speed up from dexterity.

There's a combat mod that adds a bunch of new combat moves and unlocks new ones at certain skill levels just as with Martial Art but haven't tested it.


Maybe there's some resemblance.

Nah you're right, stealth is the other exception but it only has 2 tiers, the one you start with and the naruto run.


You were in Black Desert City, right? You must have done something to piss them off in the past, they start of as neutral.

Normally you can pay a 'pacifier' to fix broken reputation with a faction but many minor ones don't have those. But there's a mod called 'Minor Faction Pacifiers' which adds them. Other than that I guess try to repair broken skeletons (belonging specifically to the 'Skeletons' faction) you find in your travels but might be hard with them being hostile.

Then there's the option of turning against them but as you found out first hand they're quite strong.

Scout Legs is where it's at nigger.

But for the purpose of levelling athletics, wearing sandals (or other + athletics stuff) would actually slow down the progress since skills level slower at higher levels and non permanent effects from clothes aren't ignored for that purpose.

bbd8ea  No.16107619


As far as I've read they wont strike against you if you're not a scorcher or a non-human. They really hate skeletons. And as far as athletics go just run from everything and run in general it'll go up relatively fast and you'll outrun almost anything. Lastly the game shows but doesn't tell which is a really strong writing technique and since this is a video game it's a visual medium, that's why I said the world building was radical as I love sci-fi so my mind goes wild and I'm so happy and terrified at this game


They don't hate me in the slightest and when I was inside the first floor of the scrapyard I went to floor 2 and it had a marker indicating they were aggressive to me, which means I'm not their friends.

Consider this.. skeletons and hivers don't get armor for every slot, so when considering what armor they should use, it should be armor that can afford protection to slots they cannot cover usually. That means armor with head protection and making sure you got some gear that covers your stomach (since you won't be wearing a shirt).


>how strong are skellies

Well, they need special repair kits and a special skill to use them, so if you get one, you will need to get more so can get back up. I did a 5 man start with 1 skelly and he died in the first fight because nobody could heal him. (He also didn't start with a kit so that was lame)

Was the rest of the town friendly? They belong to the same faction so one should not be pissed if the other isn't, unless you were spotted committing a crime and even then it's just temporary unless you assaulted and possible even killed NPC's belonging to that faction.

I'd probably write it off as a visual bug (or AI bug and they actually were aggressive). Go back there at some point and check it out again, if not importing the game would probably fix it.

Raid Frequency probably? Personally what fucked me up when building my first base was the roaming squads, not the announced raid ones.

But I'm also playing with randomized enemy squad numbers which can fuck you up the ass with RNG (but I like it that way).

>Vanilla : a Dust Bandit Squad is composed of 9 or 10 members (so 9.5 members on average).

>Modded : a Dust Bandit Squad is composed of 1 to 19 members (so 10 members on average, like in vanilla).


>Well, they need special repair kits and a special skill to use them, so if you get one, you will need to get more so can get back up.

Anyone can repair and even with 0 skill you can save a fellow skelebro (assuming you have a kit which you can steal in any town). They don't eat and have + turret skill making them a great base defence force. Early game they're also extremely tanky relative to other races since others rely on armour whilst their defence is in large part inherent.

Lastly Heavy Weapons are good which they get a boost at and makes them nice as infantry too.


If you check the factions tab (hotkey M) you'll see the reputation with them. If it's not in the negative they're not meant to be hostile. If they still are I recommend importing the save, shouldn't have any negative impact on your progress.

Running around and punching faggots in the mouth for (literally) 100 days. I've done 0 training other than when early on in the game, a kind gentleman from the United Cities sent me on a nearly month long state sponsored ninja training camp trip. Also my strength is in the 60 area, but you know, robotics.

I just now started setting up my base actually, day 107 and this huge project is slowly taking form. I'd be fucked trying to make something this large rather than slowly expanding if my squad wasn't pretty strong.

Combat skills are in my experience always a bit of a pain to level up early game but once you have some backup and better gear you'll be able to take on a lot more roaming enemies across the map and they'll just rise naturally.

Also again the 'Randomized Enemy Squad Numbers' mod can be both a blessing and a curse at time, it lets enemy squads spawn at much more manageable sizes such as 1-3 if you're lucky which is great early game.

I'm too much of a kleptomaniac in games, but you're right that's it's too OP/easy.

Planning a playthrough where I side the the Holy Nation sometime in the near future and settle in Okran's Pride and I'll abstain from thieving to change up the game a bit.

Speaking of Okran's Pride, anyone built there before? My main worry is that it might be a bit too easy with no dangerous enemies.

But I do have some bandit mods and I think it adds some 'Hill Marauders' or some such to the area so it might be lively after all.

What are some good character creation/waifu mods?

What I feel like is really missing is a mod which adds a decent amount of new face textures, hair alongside more and better looking eye colours sliders (for everything).

The anime character mod is the closest thing I've found and it's definitely an upgrade from vanilla. However there are some issues such as them counting as a separate race and unaffected by nude mods and even some animation mods. They also only have a single face texture making them all look a bit 'samey' even after tinkering with face sliders.

However it's a mod that proves the possibility of adding more sliders, it lets you change a lot more and in further detail than vanilla but again, not applied to other races.

I don't want to choose between an attractive character with no nude mods or an unattractive character with nude mods.

honestly, I think if you play with the sliders enough you can get some decent faces and definitely the bodies are nice, it's not like Bethesda game. After playing Kens hi for a long time I just picked up a nude mod from nexus and bouncing boobs (link in thread) and I'm satisfied with that. Just my 2c.

I think you can find some extra face maps on Nexus but I'm not sure, if you find something nice share the news.

Maybe I'm just too much of a sucker for the little girl aesthethic, all the vanilla faces look so grizzled and ugly.

I also wish you could reduce head size and neck length further and a new slider which reduces arm length since you can't make really small characters without fucking up their porportions.

Yeah it's a weird choice. Was thinking of learning how to mod and try to merge these changes of this mod with the regular Greenlander, but then I got lazy.

14ef0d  No.16108618


you have no head coverage and you only get 2 armor slots and the armors that cover the best will slow you down, lower your dex combat speed and doge skill so for the parts you cannot cover it is best to be able to block or doge and despite the -4 melee defense it is better with its higher bock speed derived from its higher combat speed, added on to its doge skill. will make your skelebro live longer. unless your getting cross bowed.

the game is heavily weighted for dexfags.

this face mod looks promising but I'm not seeing the loli, it at least allows more eye colors and textures for all races.

44b61d  No.16108726


I found the mod 'Compressed textures' which seems to reduce loading times and VRAM usage a lot, but it seems to override skin mods. This made my choice of not using nude mods easier, going to keep using it for a while and report how much it improves but from the little I've seen and reports from other users it seems to be excellent.

Can't believe that my 4gb VRAM isn't enough to keep textures and shit ready without massive load times.


It adds some nice variety but the only things it really does it add more eye colours and some face paintings ala Skyrimjob.

Face textures are vanilla and no changes seem to have been made.

The 'loli mod' is actually a 'JRPG races' mod, didn't see it on the nexus but it's on the workshop.

That's ultimately what lead me to ignoring the JRPG "race" mod.

Bit of an issue with these mods in that some will have them spawn in the wild as NPCs and the others are for player use only, in the latter case you won't be able to build an army of the custom race without some tinkering on your own part and I was too lazy for that.


>the game is heavily weighted for dexfags.

This, and to make matters worse that kind of limits what's actually useful for you. The color mod I grabbed for outfits doesn't seem to include the decent looking outfits without the penalties. I'm actually really disappointed in our options, was expecting there to be a medieval full plate somewhere, but when I saw the penalties for crap that doesn't even fully cover the body I gave up looking. Penalties probably need to be removed from med armor (some light armor has buffs, no need for penalizing medium at all) and lessened for heavy.


There's a mod that lets Shek have hair. Surprised I haven't seen anyone using it, unless it's lore breaking or something.

what is worse is that with the buffs you will be tankier with the light armor than you will be with the heavy. minus low level characters But that is because 0 toughness gives you double damage while 100 toughness cuts your damage in half. witch is magnitudes better than any armor in the game. with shit maybe blocking the hit only to then reduce it by a % that then is converted into blunt damage. that being said armor is vital to low level recruits to help mitigate the double damage, and save their limbs, also free strength training.

no just no most damage iv'e done is with a falling sun on a "quality build" idk mabie blunt damage passes armor better but as far as i can tell the cutting damage vs blunt damage is about the same BUT THEN you get more attack speed with the dex, not to mention that you can easily pump up strength without having to rely on combat.

Nigger I did not say a single god damn thing about cutting vs blunt.

14ef0d  No.16110107


>Nigger I did not say a single god damn thing about cutting vs blunt.

cutting damage is based off of dex while blunt damage is based off of strength. damage comes out of Your cutting damage (based off your dex) * your weapons cutting modifier + your blunt damage (based off of strength) * your weapons blunt modifier. these are applied separately each attack on whichever body part you hit. You cannot separate the discussion about damage outputs in reference you your strength and dex without talking about cutting damage vs blunt damage. nigger

now to reiterate your attack speed by being determined by your dex while your strength only works against countering your attack speed penalty based off your weapons weight. witch can be completely mitigated but then your attack speed will still be limited by your dex modifier. now blunt damage is better as cutting damage is reduced by armor twice once as it is reduced IF the coverage roll is successful then then it is reduced by the cut resistance efficiency after that the remainder is converted to blunt damage. (so even if you block cutting damage it still chips) the blunt damage then is reduced by the blunt resistance along side all the blunt damage dealt. that just has to go threw the blunt resistance IF the coverage roll is made. so raw damage wise blunt damage passes threw armor better, if only slightly so. BUT cutting damage slowly gets worse unless bandaged and CAN cut off limbs. Meaning that you can Down enemies in a more permanent fashion, that gets to be a bigger problem late game while you try and take a city and the guards you downed first bandage themselves up and get back into the fight in an endless loop until you lock them up or you know kill them or otherwise incapacitate them permanently. the later only being able to be done with cutting or bleed damage (that with the exception of the spiked club is mostly reserved for cutting weapons aka Dex based damage)

on top of this dex weapons don't get heavier as their quality goes up (a katana will always be 2 kg) while blunt weapons will get to bullshit levels 50 kg for a fragment ax and 31 for a max level jitte, not that this cannot be overcome BUT you are eating into your encumbrance and again needing to be overcome for your attack speed to match your combat speed. while a dex player will be raising his combat speed steadily along side his damage.

That's dumb. I wonder why they won't let you own slaves personally? The only thing I can think of is a balancing issue, as a lot of slaves could allow money gain too quickly, though there are ways to circumvent that like guards, and barracks required, and patrols, etc, to prevent slave revolts.

This happens when you create a new game while already in a 'game session' without exiting the game. Happened to me too.


'Minor Factions Amplified' is a great mod and also changes the Hub by adding more shops, police station, guards etc.



Then there are also 'Hub Conquest' mods that lets you own it officially, I know of two but haven't tested either one. If anyone knows which is better let me know. The latter which also contains Squin claims to keep the thieves in their tower which the other doesn't so personally I'd try that one first. Also the combo mod lets you take it over through murdering an NPC, the solo Hub one lets you buy it for 1m cat.

>Squin and The Hub

Didn't find them outside of the workshop.

There's a mod that lets the player own slaves without adding them to your squad and make them act as the slaves of NPC's, you can send them to do labour and other things, there's also dialogue window for certain orders.

Since I'm already sifting through some earlier posts and throwing around mod recommendations, I found this Martial Arts mod to be a bit better.


(Again seems to only be published to the workshop.)

Reason is that Martial Arts perpetual dodging animation is not solely caused by long dodge animation but also because of low reach. There are deadzones where your character can't reach the enemy but they can reach you (pretty much anyone that isn't using Martial Arts as well) and when you dodge away from an enemy you're most of the time put in just such a spot.

This mod increases the engagement distance of kick, increases the speed multiplier of dodge and attacks and removes the 'matrix' falling back animation and gives you a more regular dodge that doesn't cause you to be unable to follow up with an attack.

It could be a bit unbalanced as I haven't played with it on a high level Martial Artist yet but it seems fine from what I've seen so far.

More likely 5x what it cost to do that, but I think the point is it becomes your outpost. However, you would need an outpost to earn 1m usually.

yo my fellow Shem comfy autist bros

after settling in Shem for 150+ Days i noticed beakniggers rarely visit my front door anymore. Only getting massive hungry bandit hordes and frequent Dust Bandits squads.

my animal feed trough is empty af.

when I watch a beakthing getting shot at by turrets in the watchtower its action is "Running Away"

weird how they are not being aggro'ed to charge my front gate

did i expand my base too large that it "cuts" into what is considered Shem spawning area?

note I see more frequent beaknigger action in the swamp to the west than my front gate at north

also still fuk tons of beaknigger roam squads at the cliff and plateau area northern Shem

I think imma open a gate in the swamp instead and attract more wildlife… low tier human trash brings me no leather :\

9230b5  No.16116698


The issue might be that you've built walls/gates outside of what the game recognizes as your 'Outpost' and this leads the beakthings to not know how to get to your turrets because they're only programmed to attack gates within your territory.

Though it's just a guess on my part.

Hit shift+F12 to open the 'debug' menu, click 'Town Placement' and you'll see the area which it covers. You can then scroll down the list to find your outpost's name (alphabetical order), click it and you'll be able to adjust its position.

>I can't count to 5

But yeah these outlaw guards are pretty hardcore.

The Minor Faction Amplified mod also adds some pretty strong 'Highlander Bounty Hunters' which the outlaws seem to dislike and started a minor war with. I believe what started it (since both factions are meant to be neutral) is that they enslaved some bandit which a guard attacked, then they retaliated and enslaved the guard.

This further lead to the outlaws attacking the bounty hunters and getting bounties put on their own heads. Suddenly the streets are a daily struggle.

Then some slave traders came and most likely got into the fight after attempting to enslave an unconscious guard.

All in all I really like this mod, adds the kind of action I'd expect in the setting of Kenshi.


Yeah that kinda sucks, I figure you've already tried making it fit within the circle by moving the 'statue'?

i can move it in F12 mode or build some building on the other side of town…. but the town circle still remains YUGE

9230b5  No.16116902


Not sure if I misunderstood you, but it's perfectly fine for the circle to go beyond your walls/buildings, you mainly want them to be within it. Especially walls as it can otherwise enemies to spawn on the wrong side (i.e yours) of them. Or like I think might have happened in your case, make certain roaming enemies think the base is inaccessible due to lack of a gate within its limits.

But yeah if you have a rather widely stretched out, thin base, the whole circle being just that can become an issue.

55717b  No.16116924


im guessing the settlement circle is so damn big that no beakthing spawns close enough to the gate to be aggro'ed by turrets

I guess that could be it, but in my experience they tend to wander quite a bit so it's strange that they'd stop spawning further away from your base.

It could also be bad RNG. I'm not really an expert on this, maybe someone else has experience something similar and figured out what caused the issue.

If you're worried about your animal feeder emprty, you could move to the leviathan plains.

Yes, it´s far from everything, you won´t be raided anymore and there´s the blue-ish color of the soil, but there´s constant patrols of beak niggers and raptors and 100 green/50 arid so it may be something.

Both of my current games are in Shem, but the results have been a little different and the bases are in slightly different locations. It seems like I get a lot more action especially from the beaks at the second base, Beep lost both legs in my second game, Green lost an arm and a leg and Shyke lost a leg, in a matter of a couple of hours while I was just setting up.

I would also say beaks come from all directions not just the north hill. Finally and most importantly, no matter where you settle after about XXX days the attacks will slow down a lot, stuff just seems to depopulate to a degree. You can fix that if you must by importing your game.

I've settled in the High Boneyards recently and I only get a few Bone Brothers or whatever in random squads, no raids so a door makes me 100% safe, but leaving it open lets me have a moderate sense of danger.

I decided to try to walk through Venge today as the lasers didn't look too bad but the swarms of skeletons kept raping me. It took me about an hour to get out as I kept getting knocked out as I tried to sneak away from what must have been at least 40 of them.

Also, bandits recently cut off my leader? Starting character? My dude's leg and he now has a specialist quality skeleton leg. If I carry him will the HN still get butthurt if I go there? I heard they won't have issue with prosthetics if your relations are good so I may go lure some bandits into patrols so I can heal them.

If like me you are in "super fast speed" 90% of the time, make sure you use the pause key, or the regular play key.

If it is a tough fight you can check to see who is getting wreck, usually you back one guy off, otherwise I think auto combat does most of the work.

If you using some crossbows, and a fight is coming just pause the game and pull those guys back before they get engaged.
