Welcome to the Kenshi Wiki
Kenshi is a single player free-roaming Role Playing Game, with a Real-Time Strategy influence.
What is Kenshi?
Kenshi, created by Lofi Games, is a single player Role Playing Game set in a vast and atmospheric ‘Sword-Punk’ style open world. With a mix of squad-based control and city-building features, gameplay is completely free-roaming and open: enjoy the freedom and potential to do whatever you want.
Set in an unrelenting world of bloodthirsty cannibals, starving bandits, brutal slavers and wild beasts, survival alone is a grueling struggle… You are not the chosen one. You’re not great and powerful. You don’t have more ‘hitpoints’ than everyone else. You are not the center of the universe, and you are not special. Unless you work for it.
If you are new to the game then you should check out the guides. If you are returning, you should check out the Changelog.

Creating a ModificationEdit
Making a new .mod fileEdit
In order to create a Kenshi mod you must first create an empty template. You can do this by pressing "New" (the button that looks like a blank paper), this is where you select the name for you mod. Try to make it something unique and descriptive, like "LightSabers" instead of "MyMod" if you are planning on sharing the mod with others, this will make it easier for people to keep all the mods apart from each other.
Editing your new modEdit
To start editing data files for your mod, press the "Load" button, now make sure both "gamedata.base" and your mod file are selected. Don't worry about accidentally changing files from gamedata.base, all changes you make are stored in the .mod file and the .base file is not overwritten at any point during modding.
Lo-fi Games is currently working with modders in order to deploy translations for several major languages into the game. They have published a tutorial for the creation of translations in their website. As of February 2017, the Spanish and Russian translations have already received official, however incomplete, translations.
