In topic Shop signs disappeared?
Title. All shop signs are gone, how do I fix this?
That doesn't require every single DLC. I don't really care about being god-tier and able to solo an entire group, I just want to be viable.

In topic Made 200,000 cats in a couple hours
Just by hunting down skeletons in Wend, and selling their swords. All of their swords are selling for between 6000-8000 for me. My warriors aren't experienced at all either, I have 9 of them and most of them are sub-20 attack, if you play your cards right you can kill the skeletons extremely easy, and get tonnes of exp.

I also give them to the high inquisitor in Blister Hill for that sweet HN rep. Praise Okran.

In topic Good base locations in Wend?
I want to build a base north of Blister Hill, I've made fortunes by hunting down skeletons in the area and selling their Nodachi. Everywhere i travel the ground seems to be utterly dead though.

Any places in the region that aren't dead?

In topic PVP builds
I played this on xbox years ago, getting back into it on PC.

Just wanna know if im doing alright for PVP or if my age is showing and i've seriously ♥♥♥♥ed up any potential for PVP.

Im going for a DK tank, sword and shield and focusing on stamina/health. Worked p/ well for me in Xbox but that was years ago. Is this still a decent build for PVP?

And I want to know what would be a good build for PVP with the Warden class, seems interesting and it didn't exist when I played a couple years back.

So FU game industry! Did not accept your shovle ware leftovers 2 years after console release and will not do with this kind of crap.
Might be a good time to hoist the jolly roger against those who are driven by greed again.

I wouldn't buy this on steam if I were you. Chances are it will release full price again, and it's not worth it at all. Get it on the xbox pass for now, you'll save a lot of money. Best to make the most of it while you can, it likely won't be on the game pass forever.

"While I agree this game is nothing groundbreaking, it's still more competently made than any garbage Bethesda has tossed out in recent years. Only thing that kept Bethesda's games even remotely interesting was the fact they were supported by a robust modding community. The players made those games worth it, not Bethesda."


Sure the outer worlds is better than FO:76, but that's not exactly a high standard to hold it to.

The Outer Worlds however is definitely not better than FO:4, and keep in mind im not trying to defend FO:4 here either, I was also very disappointed with that game as well.

Factions and morality, in FO:4 all the factions have their own unique motives for their actions, regardless of how abhorrent they are when viewed by the others. Example being the BoS, they want to eradicate the Synths because they see them as an existential threat to the remnants of humanity, not only does this put them into conflict with the Institute, but also the railroad. It's not as developed as FO:NV, but it's certainly serviceable, it's nowhere near as black and white as TOW's revolutionary good! board bad! faction and morality.

TOW's faction system is practically non-existent, it has no impact on the game whatsoever aside from vendors being more expensive. There is no conflict between these factions aside from Monarch where there is.. ONE battle between MSI and the Iconoclasts. This also bleeds into another point, the world hubs in TOW are static as hell, enemies are zoned, they can't roam the map. If you aggro an enemy and you leave it's designated zone, it returns calmly and doesn't take any damage. This has a place in MMO's, but why the ♥♥♥♥ is this in my singleplayer RPG game? In FO:4 there are frequent battles you can stumble into, between the railroad and BoS, between BoS patrols and Synths/raiders whatever. It makes the world feel more alive, it's certainly more fun for roleplaying, if I side with the BoS, sometimes I spend some time on patrol with them to fight alongside them. This is something I can't do on TOW because there aren't even any patrols anywhere, enemies stay in their zones and that is it.

FO:4's perk system was awful, but i'd still take that any day of the week compared to TOW levelling system. First off, it's far too easy - I played two of my playthroughs as a jack-of-all-trades type build, I didn't specialise in anything, I didn't dump all my points into inidividual skills, and I was STILL able to access 90% of all the locked doors/terminals in this game. FAR too easy, not only that I was able to cheese through pretty much every speech check - by the way, they're all equally boring. Where is the need to specialise? to develop your character? There isn't any. The perks in TOW are also absolutely boring, "walk speed increased by 25%" what so I can travel the width of the map in 5 minutes instead of 7? They're all passive bonuses, nothing fun, because the perks are so boring it makes the whole phobia thing redundant, why the ♥♥♥♥ would I want to take more damage for another boring perk?

Dialogue sucks too, it's not unique or interesting, most of it is useless filler dialogue I couldn't give less of a ♥♥♥♥ about. Remember when everyone got upset at FO:4's voiced protagonist? And how it took agency away from the player and made it hard to roleplay as anything that wasn't intended by Bethesda? Well TOW manages to do the SAME ♥♥♥♥ING THING, without a VP. You're either a brave, honourable space revolutionary bringing down the corporate space pigs like some sort of space robin hood, or you're just evil, and help the board because ♥♥♥♥ it, apparently you just want to see the world burn. There is no pragmatic reason to help the board, it's just portrayed as "the evil playthrough" and thats it. Extremely disappointing as this is made by the same company who made FO:NV.

In topic All out war between HN and UC, who wins?
Originally posted by MadArtillery:
Okrans shield is a pretty big part of this. Holy Nation having that mega fortess is a big deal especially as rogue machines wandering in will run into the attacker first ironically adding to the defence despite being hostile to the defenders. United Cities has little defence locations set up so holy nation can attack with much more impunity with the mountains to defend them with fortresses in the passes. In a vacuum without the other factions it definitely wouldn't be pretty. Been thinking about it for a bit and the United Cities REALLY needs to do something about that as if the shek fell they likely would as well soon after.

Gotta give the holy nation credit for one thing, they sure know how to fortify.

This is definitely something people forget about the HN, all routes into their territory are guarded by large fortresses. Okran's Shield guards the mountain passes from the Iron hills - an area already difficult to pass considering it's toxic to humans and shek. And Okran's Fist guarding the mountain passes to the north, specifically near the Bast region, which coincidentally is probably the only land route available to the UC if they want to invade the Holy nation without travelling for weeks around the deadlands or through territory inhabited by cannibals and fogmen. Their southern border isn't as well defended, however it would be pretty difficult for the UC to move any meaningful amount of troops there, the only threats it needs to deal with are from the dust bandits.

The fortresses can also act as sturdy position for them to attack the United cities, the UC really don't have much in the way of defence along their borders with the HN, this is probably the reason why they managed to destroy Bast at all. There isn't much stopping the HN from taking huge swaths of territory aside from Drin, a ruined town with a garrison of UC Samurai, however that town is in a state of near-complete ruin, and would definitely not be able to stand up against a coordinated Holy nation invasion. Once Drin falls there is nothing until Stoat and Sho-Battai.

Yeah but that's not really a merit of the game, it's sorta akin to saying "This bin smells slightly less disgusting than this other bin"

TOW is still just as shallow as recent BGS games like FO:76, arguably even more shallow than FO:4. But people still act like this game is the "perfect RPG" because it's made by Obsidian and they desperately want their fantasies about this game being a "bethesda killer" to come true.

I just saw gameplay, and it's smth nice, but steam players must waiting all year, its a joke. I only hope that people dont forget this.

OP, Honestly, if you really want this game don't make a stand by waiting for it to come out on steam - because the chances are it'll release full price, and it's 100% not worth £50. Buy it on the xbox pass for a few pennies, once you completed this game you'll probably never play it, or even think about it again.

In topic All out war between HN and UC, who wins?
Originally posted by angrytrex:
I think with or without alliances, the UC would win pretty easily. They have forces to both the south and East, and the HN would be fighting on multiple fronts with no where to go. In the worst case scenario, the HN would be completely surrounded and attacked from all 4 cardinal directions, where as the UC owns all the territory to the coast and would likely only have to deal with a western front..

Even if the UC attacked with no Allies, the HN would still not be able to find safety to the north (Flotsam, Cannibals), East (Fog / Western Hive) or South (UC, Shek). The UC however would be able to move through Flotsam territory, Western Hive and around (but not through) Shek territory to attack from the North, West, and South simultaneously. Either way, both factions would want to probably get control of The Hub as soon as possible.

I think you're vastly overestimating the strength of the UC here, there is no way for the UC to go around and attack the HN from the north or the west because of the threat from the cannibals and fogmen, they could try to fight their way through these threats but that would simply make their supply lines vulnerable and would likely be completely ineffective anyway - the HN have had hundreds of years to set up infrastructure and fortresses on all of these fronts, a tired, weakened and vulnerable army wouldn't really have any impact on them.

Nor could the UC attack from the south through hub, since that would require crossing the Iron hills and dead lands which is completely toxic to everyone except for skeletons and Hive, of course groups of Hive soldiers could cross but that would be an insignificant amount of troops and they could likely be used more effectively elsewhere. However if for whatever reason the UC were determined to attack from the south they'd need to cross territory owned by the swampers and dust bandits as well, again leaving their supply lines vulnerable, and after they made this massive journey, they'd likely find that the Hub has already been taken by the Holy nation, seeing as it's extremely close to Stack.

The only way the UC would be able to attack the HN with any force would be through the bast region, where there is already a huge stalemate, and not only that the UC would need to deal with their rebels in the north.

6/10 times during a desert brawl the HN comes out on top with fewer fighters, they just have to much AOE, also the HN has more strong fighters but less in a squad and more damage and AOE while the UC has more fighters slightly better armor but less training and less level 60+ fighters.

Now the shek kick everybody`s ♥♥♥ so in any war involving all of Kenshi the shek would come out on top hands down.

I don't think the shek would win anything, to be honest I think the Shek are the weakest out of all three. The HN managed to nearly drive them to extinction, it was only because Esata kicked Shagar off the throne that they still exist today. They're really great individual warriors, but I think they lack the numbers and co-ordination the UC and HN have, otherwise how else would the HN nearly destroy their entire country?

53% voted in favour of brexit, correct me if Im wrong but im fairly certain 53% is more than half, any of statistics you are using are likely polls and not indicative of the overall opinion of the nation, it doesn't matter anyway because there has already been a vote, and your side lost so get over it. Why would anyone be embarrassed of voting leave? If anything, i'm more embarrassed of how our political system is even suggesting the idea that we should stop brexit, im from an overwhelmingly majority leave area, and yet our MP is a remainer. If anything that is the mess we should be embarrassed about, not the democratic vote for leave.

And I don't think you should even have the word hyperbole in your mouth when you say things like "But muh immigration stole my jobs, woman, and money, muh immigration". Mass migration is a complex issue that most people in this country have a vested interest in, not just because of jobs but also because of the impact it has on our towns cities and NHS. You reducing this to an insult isn't making me think you're any less sheltered than i already think you are. Are you a uni student or something?

You seem scared of a second vote.

I would be too, if I were in your camp. Might revert this horrific self inflicted wound, like it never happened, except for the millions of pounds lost financially.

And this time the people would be more aware of the EU's importance, it's accessability, and trading powers, human rights issues, and overall EAZY life compared to the bureaucratic logistical and political nightmare that's currently happening. I could go on, but I'm thirsty.

But you keep counting your millions of pounds destined for the NHS that will magically appear, truckfuls of cash diverted from EU payments, delivered to you like the original Clown Farage message, on a bus.

ROFL

And yes, of course it's the EU immigrants that are doing all those things to you. Not the commonwealth countries migration. Noooo sirreeee. Nope.

*puts his fingers in his ears and goes lalalalalalaaaaa*

And I think you'll find the fiscal impact of immigration on the UK is largely negligible, slightly positive in fact.

The EU can't even determine your immigration policies, you had a special priviledged veto-worthy deal with the EU, and could opt out of Schengen anytime, for whatever reason, with little to no repercussions.

It's the UK government that allowed Polish plumbers to come en masse to the UK. Not the EU.

Get your facts straight, at least in 2019.

Why would I be scared of a second vote? it's never going to happen, and we'll see what happens in the current general election. The current political nightmare in the UK is not down to brexit, it's down to our incompetent politicians treating brexit as damage control, rather than the oppertunity it is for free trade with the rest of the world. We could have been out years ago had the supposed "far right" tory party not put a remainer in charge, very far right. And imagine thinking the EU isn't even worse, you do realise the EU isn't some example of stunning, efficient bureaucracy right? Also, i'd like to point out, accessibility? it's not hard to get a Visa you know.

And where did I say I was pro-commonwealth immigration? I'm not don't put words in my mouth.

Also,"the EU can't control our immigration policies anyway" "Everyone who voted brexit did so because they don't want immigration" pick one.

Yeah see previous.

I don't know what to tell you buddy, but the sky IS blue, no matter how much you shout that it's...errr, green (which i guess it could be in lapland due to auroras but that's neither here nor there).

You are defining a known concept and categorisation in your own way, that's not supported really by anyone outside of your sphere, not by the written word, and not even the spoken word in the mainstream.

It occurs to me, people supporting these parties don't want to be branded far right, in case the secret is out, but really like you said, keep your head up high mate. Nothing to be ashamed of.

Don't be surprised if we make fun of those people though.

Words do no harm right? (i don't actually believe that at all, but it seemed fitting here)

Far right is used to describe fascists, neo-nazis and nativists. I don't think UKIP or Brexit party qualify. If you're defining being far right as anything other than that, then you're using it maliciously to disrupt discourse and get your nipples hard, nothing better than LARPing as some sort of antifascist right? It's hard to do though when there aren't actually any fascists walking about. Lets just brand moderates far right instead.

We didn't just imagine a far right surge. Look at AfD's popularity in Germany, Vox in Spain, Italy (Five stars league or is it something else now) True Finns party in Finland, Svenska Demokrater in Sweden etc etc.

These are all defined far right. So is Brexit party.

Sorry if it's not too extreme for extremists.

In practise, UKIP/Brexit party are more progressive and moderate than western governments were when they were actually fighting the Nazi's.

Sheltered?

Less than half the people in the UK even support Brexit, so statistically you would be outnumbered at a dinner table anyways. And the constant failures, economic loss, soft power loss and ridicule by other countries of the UK because of Brexit, should make any Leaver qualm at the dinner table. They wouldn't stand a chance.

But muh immigration stole my jobs, woman, and money

And your hyperbolic comparison to WORLD WAR II (wtf really??) is unneeded. That sort of comparison is not only dated, but highly inappropriate. Need I mention extreme circumstances???

No, really.

Sure there are the loud proud (boys) ones, but at a dinner party most people are ashamed to bring up they voted for shooting themselves in the foot, i.e. brexit, or that clown farage, or the true finns party which made such a mess of things in power, it self destructed with its leader nowhere to be found, tail tucked between his legs.

Let's see now.

Conservatives are rightwing, yes?
Labour is left wing, yes?

So more right wing conservative (and nutty lying ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s) would be UKIP/Brexit party, no?

Same with Green parties considered far left in the EU.

I realise nobody wants to label themselves far right or far left due to negative connotations, but this is just how things are defined by politics and definitions currently, in news papers and outlets, but also when voting.
