@Crushfield, it's technically possible, though would take a bit of work. I have a note to self, in case there's time to look into it.

@Yippie Ki-Yay, there are currently only the ones in the skill select screen, unfortunately. One can upgrade their character in the beta via augmentations in the DMC, but it's only minor at the moment.

@BoxCatGamer, this is a bug in the AI factions code which happens when 2 or more NPCs share a hex. They try to share faction opinions and sometimes decide to suddenly hate the player. It's being fixed!

I was in the city, a bunch of guards around me and I never attacked any of them. I was making a bunch of bows to sell, but then suddenly I came in contact with a guard, offered to talk, and he shot me right in the chest twice, killing me. Why did this happen? Please tell me.

would love to have multiple games going at once. what you think Dan, would that be difficult to add? not simultaneously, but a way to load 1 of many saves. if you die=save wiped.

i think youre right ^^. Sometimes I think of a backstory for about an hour before i play. Sometimes id like a war veteran who got wounded and cant see well because of that and sometimes i just want a poor thief. But I doesn't matter what kind of person i make, nobody survives diarrhea xD

That's an interesting idea. And in fact, both the metabolism skill and trait are kinda like this. (Skill reduces hunger/thirst, but also healing rate, and trait is inverse)

However, I'm thinking the more granular they are, the more freedom they offer to players. E.g. some players might choose to be myopic because they are a hacker, reasoning that they spent a lot of time working indoors. While others might opt for a hacker with eagle eye, since they were an avid hiker in their past.

With things more granular, one can make up any backstory they want!

This is the best Survival game that I have ever played :D . There´s nice humor, nice style and the gameplay is amazing. But it would be nice if you would add "neutral traits". They would give you an advantage but also a disatvantage. Would be really awesome to see that :D

Yep, the NaN pants can be worn again. It's not normal (NaN is a bug), but it's expected with that type of bug.

@Randymidget, probably not. NEO Scavenger "1" is going to be more nomadic in nature, so no followers nor settlement-creation. You may make some allies in the world, but nobody will form an adventuring party or anything like that. Maybe in future games!

Is there a planned feature to make friends and invite them to live wqith you etc/set up an actual place bthat is designated as 'home'?

I will try to make that bug happen again. And if i do i will tell u how i got it. Btw. Is it normal that i can wear those NaN% pants? I took em off but i could wear them again if i would like to.
