What the developers have to say:

Kenshi is currently in alpha state. The game is still in development and is missing many features. There are currently unfinished gameplay features, and the stability will fluctuate as new features are added. Expect crashes and bugs at this stage.
But remember the game receives regular ongoing updates and improvements, by purchasing at this early stage you get the game for a reduced price and can watch it gradually grow and improve, provide your feedback to the developer, and above all you are helping to fund the development for a small independent developer. Remember: the price will gradually increase over time as development progresses, so the sooner you purchase, the lower the price.”

0.96.27 Out Now (Experimental)

0.96.27 is now out on the experimental branch. 0.96.26 has been moved to the main branch. To opt in to this experimental version, right-click on Kenshi in your Steam games list -> properties -> betas tab -> then choose “experimental”. If opting in, please be aware of bugs and general instability.

0.96.27
  • Slightly reduced upper tier heavy armour resistance, to make the top tiers less overpowered
  • Regenerated world navmesh to speed up zone loading times
  • Improved navmesh splicing (whatever that means)
  • Changed physics xml and bin files to use Ogre resource manager (fixes steam mods)

Note: Please report any bugs or problems, or upload crash dumps to the Steam forum or official Lo-Fi Games forum so that we can fix as soon as we can. Thank you :)

0.96.26 Out Now

Now available on the main branch...

0.96.26

Main features:

GUI
  • GUI updated if window size changes
  • Added font size option slider
  • Squad panel drop target hidden to make reordering squads easier
Food
  • Added some race-specific foods. Hivers can eat raw and foul meat.
  • Animals need to eat now.  You'll need a backpack with food in for them.  You can stop them eating via the AI options.
  • Animals will eat food dropped on the ground
  • Animals will eat food out of the storages at your home base, if "feed animals" is enabled in the AI options
  • Added a special animal feeding barrel.
Misc
  • Some of the katana attacks now have reduced max-hits per attack, meaning they are less effective against groups. (Mainly the downward combo, but I also increased the power a little, this makes katanas more of a duelists weapon.)
  • Hive traders will sometimes visit your base
  • Doubled cost of animals
  • Shek slaves get their horns cut off
  • Lowered the price mark-up on illegal goods in the SW empire towns, the idea is that you only get the huge markups when you travel far east to the new empire regions
  • Fixed up the slave shipment chain- slaver caravans gather up slaves and deliver to work camps.  "Freelance" hunters deliver them to the nearest slave shop.
  • Mounted turrets and lights repositioned when parent building is upgraded
  • Splinting now splints over blunt damage as well
  • Splinting can also apply to non-limbs, to help counter work quality penalties when crafting etc.
  • You now get back slightly more materials when you dismantle buildings, and the number has been added to the FCS global settings
  • Bodies don't disappear so fast when being eaten by spiders
  • Corpse flies sound integrated
  • Wind generator sound intensity based on rotation speed
  • Altered the player AI to choose nicer beds to sleep in
  • Unique NPCs that escape captivity can now travel all the way back home to resume their lives
  • Artifact distribution has been tweaked, there should be less of a shortage of AI cores and science books
  • Updated translation base data

Note: Please report any bugs or problems, or upload crash dumps to the Steam forum or official Lo-Fi Games forum[www.lofigames.com] so that we can fix as soon as we can. Thank you :)

"This level of thoughtfulness and ambition is why I learned to love the PC in the first place and I’ll be damned before I put on my cynical hat before I have good reason."
