I’ve finally got round to kickstarting Kenshi. Please help out if only by facebook-liking the campaign page. There’s some cool rewards to be had by donating:
In other news, I’m still working on adding constructable buildings to the game, and I estimate about 2 weeks for the first update. Buildings can now be added and removed by a character, including all the underlying technical stuff like updating the pathfinding system and loading/saving. Now I’m taking care of all the little things like building material consumption, interior furnishing, placement varification.
The plan is that I will make the first update quite quickly. This means you will be able to build a building, but not do much with it at first. The features that will be added in the first series of updates, in approximate order are:
- Place storage containers.
- Place beds, where you can rest an heal quicker
- Add doors to keep enemies out
- Mining for resources
- Defensive upgrades and turrets
- Add ladders, so you can use multiple floors
