    Other Language Wikis

    September 25, 2019 by Jellywish09

    Recent discussion of wiki translations, thought I might link to all of the different wikis out there. It looks like at least half of all Kenshi wikis have been abandoned.

    • Kenshi Chinese Wiki  was one user's attempt at translating our wiki. They didn't get very far and the most recent activity was late March.
    • Kenshi Wiki is the other FANDOM Chinese wiki. This wiki matches our wiki more closely and has had activity within the last 3 weeks. 
    • Kenshi Huijiwiki is the best of the three Chinese wikis. This wiki has the most pages so far, 336 to be exact, and has had activity within the last day.
    • Kenshi Japanese @wiki is a Japanese wiki which appears to be attempting a migration to wiki3. Despite that, it has more recent activity with edits dated tomo…

    Best Skeleton Couple

    September 5, 2019 by Jellywish09


    Dack and Quin are probably going to fall apart eventually. Always arguing about hoarding and selling their junk. But their home is spacious enough for a lot more stuff and they have a secure business.

    Ponk and StF are wanted criminals and eventually someone is going to get them.

    Agnu and Beep have a great love story but Agnu might be headed towards increasing malfunctions.

    Shek Kingdom Map

    April 29, 2019 by Jellywish09

    The Shek Kingdom map is poorly designed. The lore is that their civilization is in ruins because of the unending war with The Holy Nation, and there's two maybe three ruined locations on the map which support that.

    Specifically the Shek Ruins, which display that the SK previously had more settlements than they currently do. Except, the Shek Ruins is located in between Squin and Admag. If HN caused the destruction of an SK settlement, why wouldn't it be the one located closest to the HN?

    The excuse is probably that Squin is much more defensible. But if SK has a well defended settlement nearer to the border, how did HN manage to get so far into their territory and physically ruin the now-ruins.

    Probably the settlement fell to ruins because the …

    Kenshi Fashion

    April 8, 2019 by Jellywish09

    Kenshi doesn't have an armour degredation mechanic (unless worn inside a peeler machine), so Drifter's Leather Jackets don't start out as complete jackets and then over time lose a sleeve. All Drifter's Leather Jackets are made with the same missing sleeve. This is true for homemade leather jackets too.

    Here's the theory: in one of the old empires, complete, both-sleeved leather jackets were made. But after the fall of one of the empires, all of those jackets were lost except for one single-sleeved jacket. Someone liked that jacket a lot so they made a blueprint based on it, but they intentionally didn't make it symmetrical. Probably because they thought it looked cooler that way. Every armour crafter since has felt the same way about the s…

    New Badges

    I've created a new Wiki Achievement Badge track. You can now earn badges specifically for editing pages in Category:Locations! Our goal for that category is to get a detailed page for every kenshi location and a good screenshot. (you don't have to stop at one!)

    I've also removed the categories Major Towns, Towns, and Ancient Locations because those distinctions were weird and not really defined by the game. (well, Towns is almost gone. if anyone knows which waystations are Waystation and which are Waystation Four, please help me)

    Cyberbeep *is* a Skeleton

    February 15, 2019 by Jellywish09

    Unique Recruit Beep is probably the character in Kenshi most likely to lose limbs. After being outfitted with a Robot Limb, Beep will refer to himself as Cyberbeep in Zone entry dialogue and upon seeing a neutral skeleton character, will say something along the lines of "hello fellow skeleton!" or "hi! beep is a skeleton too!"

    Typically, this is understood to be simply another world concept which beep is kinda wrong about, similar to how he is unable to distinguish whether a character is female. Beep may not have known many actual skeletons before being recruited by the player, but he does have knowledge of the hive.

    The Hive Queen race (used in The Queen and Queen of the South) is considered a skeleton race by the game. Hive Queens look like…

    So I have gathered this data for myself, it's not great, its not perfect, I dont know if its wiki worthy.

    To get the exclusive dialog, I opened every reference for [is character] and [has package] for each character and counted any that had that character only as a user of that dialog

    To get the dialog references, as above I counted every reference for [is character] and [has package] If someone could try to replicate a couple of these and compare to my results to see if i did this correctly, I would appreciate it a lot.

    Tables EVERWHERE

    July 6, 2018 by Jellywish09

    The Wikia Community stance is that Tables in articles/pages are a bad idea because they decrease readability on mobile and we should be trying to decrease their use. I think that if you're looking up kenshi information on your phone, you're already too far gone and readability isn't your main concern when finding game content.

    Hey,

    As there are now weather effects in Kenshi, I put in some time to update the armour template accordingly.

    There are now 3 more parameters available when using this template.

    • Duststorm protection
    • Acid protection
    • Gas protection

    Example of how it looks below:

    Steam Charts

    November 28, 2016 by Junduin

    I've always been a sucker for data, maybe it's why I like contributing to this wiki.

    However, I was just browsing Steam Charts and saw a total playing time of 153,000 hours into Kenshi which puts it just below Star Wars, Knights of the Old Republic (240,00), Assassin's Creed Unity (220,00), and Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (193,000) by comparison. The closest game to Kenshi is Alien: Isolation (167,000). Not that bad for a game whose all time peak was 981 players back in December 2013. Unsurprisingly, small rises in both average players and peak players happen with each stable build.

    Hopefully we'll break the 1,000 player barrier with a full release by early-to-mid 2017.

    Meanwhile I will go through all other Storage:* pages (by other I mean those which were done already) for formatting purposes. After that I will make some edits for every page to have precise data by versions as well. Since there are a few differences with storages in greater versions, like storage maximum capacity.


    This is all for now.

    • Storage: Iron Plates
    • Storage: Armour Plate
    • Storage: Copper Alloys

    but after the listed ones I will start editting the already Info filled Storage pages so everything will look the same and will look neet as well.

    Clothing Vs. Armour

    August 3, 2016 by Veliantx

    Should we use the clothing page to list equippable items that give no defensive bonuses and dont fall in to light, medium, or heavy armor class? I mean technically items like Halfpants Sneaky Chain  are a peice of clothing but are more in the armour category in most cases as they have an armour class, whereas something like Halfpants (ragged) is equippable in an armor slot but gives no added bonus and has no armor class in the tooltip.

    Do what you can. Adding any kind of information (text, photo, video and others) makes editing wikia easier. Writing at least two words may clarify an article. At least one photo is what each page deserves. If you have no info to add, but you see a bay formatting -> fix it. Make a table or two, add some description to existing photo(s).

I had made a post with a list on the Lo-Fi Games and Steam forums to just get an idea if anyone else had found something I had not. It was there that someone suggested I work on the wiki since I already had a good list of information.

    Hey guys,

    I've come to the realization that there's not been a post on the wiki, or the wiki forum, in nearly 3 days now.  So I figured I'd announce that I still exist with a blog.  What I intend to talk about, no clue, but logic, so kay.


    If anyone was wondering, I do intend to become a modder for Kenshi, which has gone so far unsuccessfully, because brand frigen new to meshing.  I DO have a mod in the works, but at the current moment, it's an invisible sword that does god-like damage, cause forged by gods.  Makes perfect sense to be invisible right?  yeah....  It's pretty glitchy but try 1.

    This would in one swoop possibly entertain and inform fellow Kenshi players, inform in one lump report on bugs and feedback for the developers, and generate publicity ($?) for the game.

    Future Updates

    April 7, 2013 by Benakarthe

    I don't know if anyone knows the game creator personally, but one of my favorite parts of wikis is the future content info.  This would be incredibly great for the Kenshi wiki since this game is such a work in progress.  I feel a page describing what is coming in the future would really entice more players to be involved.  I know on his website the Creator has some updates, but he doesn't describe them all in detail because he says that there are just so many to write down.  A wiki is a great place for a big extensive list like that (better than the news section of the homepage).  I know he is busy, but if someone close to him could get a detailed list of all the things he wants to add to the game over time, and maybe even a rough realease…
