General Discussion / From what Alpha did you first start the game?
« on: May 29, 2017, 05:25:55 AM »
Just curious to see the stats.

Personally, I've been here since Alpha 8. Saw an LP of it on youtube and it reminded me of Dwarf Fortress. Got my hands on it afterwards and started my first colony.

100%, Situations where you don't know what to expect creates the most memorable stuff.

My very first colony's story was the most memorable for me.
A few weeks in and a few raids later, I was holding up pretty well in the temperate forest. My group of 3 turned into a group of 4. Having plenty of fun and then a 1 man raid happened. It was a guy with a molotov. "You silly goose." I thought and sent out my two shooters. But before my guys can reach him, he snucked into a cryptosleep room and set fire to a pod. It blew up on his face and 9 space soldiers came out and instantly butchered him. My guys were on the entrance to witness it all.

"Oh sh*t" I thought and retreated. But the soldiers we're catching up and shooting at my guys. Without much cover, my men stood behind trees and tried to fight back... it didn't end well. They only managed to kill one soldier before getting cut down by the rest.

Meanwhile on my base, I was panicking. We had no guns and only have a knife and a single turret to protect ourselves. I called for help from two outlander towns and they sent us a total of 8 gunmen. Upon their arrival, the soldiers began their assault. Both sides took losses but the soldiers were winning.

I decided to uninstall a wall on the side of my base and snucked up on two soldiers behind a wall who were distracted with the fighting. My electrician stabbed one to death and proceeded to gun down the other who was giving my farmer a bad time. Now armed with an LMG and Incendiary Launcher. My guys proceeded to cut down the group of soldiers from behind until only 1 remained. Clad in power armor and a charge rifle, the surviving soldier finished off the last of my allies and proceeded to fire on my men. My electrician had his kidney shot out and was incapacitated. But the farmer went behind a nearby wall and shot him with a fire bolt. He then just stood there and burned to death.

With half of my base on fire and corpses everywhere, my remaining colonist broke before he could rescue his friend.

and I was hooked ever since then.
So, how did your first game turn out?

Seems fitting imo and gives a nasty downside to a pretty powerful trait.
Then again, people are already salty about social fights so I don't think this will be well recieved.

General Discussion / [RAFFLE RESULTS] I drew people's colonists
« on: April 27, 2017, 07:42:07 AM »
Eyy it's me again. From this thread: https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=31192.0

Remember that? no?
well ok...

Anyways, I'm not gonna post the full result of that yet. (Because I haven't done the rest of them yet.) But I do already have the list of the winners. So here's whats gonna happen, top 5 gets one of their colonists drawn. Top 1 gets all 3 drawn. Since I'm a dick that likes to shatter hopes and dreams, I'll only reveal it bit by bit as I continue to finish these things. Well, the last one was supposed to be 3 colonists. But unfortunately only 1 was submitted.

Here's the list:


Congrats to our first lucky winner:
PenguinzPlay

Colonist: Elivra
"The Mrs."

Congrats to our second lucky winner:
NonoAdomo

Colonist: Rowan
"The Handler"


Congrats to our third lucky winner:
Someonesneaky

Colonist: Canim
"Warrior"

Congrats to our fourth lucky winner:
FocusingBlur

Colonist: Vladimir
"The Man in Black"

Congrats to our final lucky winner:
Edixo

Colonist: Nordgen
"Edward Scytherhands"



Aaaaaaaaannnnnndddddddddd

General Discussion / [CLOSED] A Friend will draw your colonists again
« on: March 18, 2017, 02:57:22 AM »
Update: That'll be it. See ya folks in a week or two.

hey it's me again

Sometime around December, I held a little event where I drew the colonists of people interested enough to post on the thread. The result was this.
Now summer vacation is coming up for me soon and I thought I'd do another round of that since alot of people liked it and I've got nothing better to do with my life except be lazy and neglect doing mod textures.

And now here we are once more.

Rules:
-   If you wish to participate, simply use the template below.
-   Maximum of 3 pawns. (To give me options in case everyone presents Sniper McGee as their fav pawn.)
-   Reserve comments after the template (Just to keep things neat and clean for me)
-   Modded pawns are allowed. As long as they’re humanoid, eg. Human looking robots, animal-hybrids, aliens.
-   Your colony must be at least 2 seasons old (Because drawing a neon blue clothed dude is really boring for me.)
-   I’ll only accept entries until April 8, as I’ll start after that.

Template
Colony Name:
Pawn #1 (Insert colonist name here):  (LINK TO SCREENSHOT OF YOUR COLONIST)
Without hat: (LINK TO THE SCREENSHOT unless the first one already doesn't have a hat.)
Character Menu: (LINK TO THE SCREENSHOT)
Gear Menu: (LINK TO THE SREENSHOT)
Health Overview: (LINK TO THE SCREENSHOT, Edit: It's fine to skip this one as long as the health is normal. Meaning no bionics, drugs, ailments, scars, etc and full 100% stats.)
Additional details: (Anything you want to say. Stories, bonded pets, memorable things they did, usual role in the colony, tiny details that may appear one way or another in the sketch. Makes it easier for getting ideas.)


Here's how it should look like:

Colony Name: Rytom
Pawn #1 Lav: http://i.imgur.com/8xxEY3I.png
Without hat: http://i.imgur.com/3Kr1uYG.png
Character Menu: http://i.imgur.com/eP1jjTm.png
Gear Menu: http://i.imgur.com/9NITzDB.png
Health Overview: http://i.imgur.com/dPuaTII.png
Additional details: An old nomad that decided to settle down within our tiny community. With a past that he won't share and a blue dagger-like gaze, the enigmatic man soon became the community's best sharpshooter. In simpler terms, He's a badass.

Result:


Then just do that for the second and third pawn and you can potentially have something like this:


Important: I'll only pick 5 winners. With the 1st one having all 3 of their colonists drawn.

And that'll be it. Good luck y'all.

Edit: You can add in a second and third pawn if you wish.

Ideas / Option for more than 1 faction of that type
« on: December 23, 2016, 08:53:50 AM »
I don't know if there already is one but I ain't seeing it. Would be nice to be able to raid one faction without pissing off everyone on the planet.

Also if there's a mod available for this, I'll gladly use it.

Edit: Or maybe It's due to me having these faction mods, thus taking up slots... I'll go test it.
Edit 2: Ah, it is due to my mods. But still it would be nice to have something like:
"No. of Outlander Faction 1 - 2 - 3" slider or something.

Bugs / [A16] Scenario: Two forced traits conflicting each other.
« on: December 23, 2016, 08:29:39 AM »
I was trying to make a cannibal run then I found out I couldn't start with my custom scenario. Figured out why:
I had two forced cannibal traits. One was for my starters and one only for NPCs. I think it should only conflict if one of the two are set to "All characters".

General Discussion / [CLOSED] A Friend will draw YOUR colonists.
« on: December 14, 2016, 08:46:09 AM »
Update: So it begins. I'll create a new thread once it's all done.

Hello!
Dunno if you know me around here but I like drawing stuff. I have about 3 weeks’ worth of free time coming up soon and A16’s just around the corner still buggy. So I thought I’d make this little contest while we all wait for it.

All right so what’s the contest?
You post info about 3 of your colonists, I draw them. Vanilla or modded, both are welcome.
I’ll choose 3 “winners” where I’ll draw all 3 of their colonists. (But depending on how much time I’ll still have left, I might increase it to 5) Everyone else will only have 1 of their colonists drawn. But heck everyone still wins because DRAWINGS!
I’ll run names through a random selection to keep things fair.

Edit: Actually, I put up the wrong site link. Here's the actual one: http://www.miniwebtool.com/random-picker/

Rules:
-   If you wish to participate, simply use the template below.
-   Maximum of 3 pawns.
-   Reserve comments after the template (Just to keep things neat and clean for me)
-   Modded pawns are allowed. As long as they’re humanoid, eg. Human looking robots, animal-hybrids, aliens.

Additional details: He's a badass.

Result:


Now do that to the 2 other pawns and you can potentially have this:

Important: I’ll only accept entries until Dec. 20, as I’ll start selecting after that.

Now that's settled, I hope y'all enjoy whatever interpretations I might come up with your peg-leg-dementia-ridden-staggeringly-ugly colonists.

Mods / [Textures] Animal Hats
« on: November 18, 2016, 07:02:19 AM »
I drew some stuff

Deer Hood


Deer Hood (Flipped, Facial Stuff mod in mind)

What it will probably look like:


Arctic Wolf Hood


Timber Wolf Hood


I might possibly add in other animals and maybe fur coats. But I have to prioritize other stuff for now.
If anyone feels like using these for a mod. Feel free. Just give credit.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ez23foxh5o9jag1/Animal%20Hoods.rar?dl=0 - Note that this is not a mod, just graphics to start one.

Ideas / Taking a Picture of the Colony Residents (Social Event)
« on: November 01, 2016, 06:54:16 AM »
You can set a spot similar to parties and marriages but for the event to trigger, you would need to first have a camera. The event would only happen once per year in the spring (Or maybe every couple of seasons as colonists tend to come and go).
Anyways, the event would be similar to marriages:

1. The every colonist along with their bonded pets not set to work would gather to the spot while one person fetches the camera from the stockpile. They'd socialize a bit while the camera is being set up.
2. When it's ready, the colonists will tightly gather and face the camera.
3. The camera flashes and the picture's taken. Everyone receives a great mood buff for a week. Some colonists may huddle around the camera as if checking the photograph but would then leave immediately after.
4. The camera drops a photograph whose description can be viewed via "art".

In the description it would name every colonists and pets who participated in the event and then the date it was taken. Or if possible, have it list down the names in which you could click on and it would show something like this:

(Have the pawn picture be in sepia if possible)
It would show the clothes, stats, traits, age, and augmentation (if they have any) which the pawn had on that day.

I think it would be a neat "little" addition to the game. You could remember pawns that died or see how your bionic cyborg murdermachine used to be some chump with a peg leg and 3 shooting skill a year ago.

So... thoughts?
