Update 0.74.29 + Giant Swamp Frogs

Feature-wise, progress for Kenshi has been trickling along slowly this past month or two, however we now finally have some screens of what our artists have been working on while the programmers fix bugs:

swampfrog

^ Another new creature, a giant frog from the swamplands area of the new world map, all modeled up but still in need of animating. Note that Swamp Frogs aren’t yet released in game.

land1 land2

^ More mystery ruins for the New Lands

land3 land4

^ Scaffolds of a mining town on the border of the Tar Sands. (Eventually there will be buildings on the flat tops with bridges connecting the flat-topped islands of rock/ small settlements. The tarry canyon bottoms will be fog-filled, unconnected from the tops and poisonous. So far, this is all procedural)

And in our latest update, Chris recently added the small feature of Mercenary Shops. You’ll now be able to hire temporary mercs to defend your base – these are currently only in the Experimental build and you’ll need to import to a new game for them to appear.

Please keep sending in your crash dumps and bug reports, it’s been a massive help so far, thank you to everyone!

CURRENT STATUS:

Updates will continue to focus on bug-fixing and stability for the near future, my goal is to get a reasonably stable version released before we carry on with major features.
For this period Steam updates will be frequent- every day or two-, and the “Stable” and “Experimental” versions of the game will be similar. Once a stable build is achieved I will release a new standalone installer for the non-Steam folks. Most of our work will depend on the awesome players who send in crashDump files and buggy save games.
