AHOYFirst time playing this game, saw /v/ recommend it a bunch, and, should I play with oddities xp setting, or just go normal for my first time?Is it harder/frustrating to go with oddities, or is the choice just based on immersion more?Also, general Underrail thread, talk about all sorts of stuff related to it
>>390173623Go with oddities, it's the experience system the game is meant to be played with. Classic is kind of like a legacy, it came first, and the dev figured there was no reason to scrap it since some people might prefer it. But it's not balanced very well, and most players who go with classic but don't rush the game tend to hit level cap around 2/3 through.What build are you planning to roll?
>>390173623>should I play with oddities xp setting, or just go normal for my first time?Oddity is recommended for multiple reasons.It's how the game is supposed to be played. Normal XP is more of a legacy system and is pretty unbalanced, you will reach max level way too quickly. Other than that oddity encourages exploration and allows you to level up without forcing you to be a murderhobo killing everything in his path.>Is it harder/frustrating to go with oddities, or is the choice just based on immersion more?You will level slower with oddity, but it's more balanced. It's arguably more frustrating to reach the max level early and have no progression for the rest of the game.
>dude le underrail thread get in here le jacks XD
>>390175267You have good memory.
this game sucks prove me wrongprotip: you can't cause i'm not reading the replies
Is there more satisfying item than taser?
>>390177486Motion Tracking NVGs?
>>390177813Smart is more useful in my opinion.
>>390177486Re-stealthing with flashbangs.
>>390177486In later game? No. In early game, the Molotov Cocktails.>Psycho is running around in panic!
>>390178023If you are ranged, sure. But the more perception-challenged will appreciate any help with detection they can get.
>>390178519I like to sprint towards hiding crawlers after they poisoned me, it's usually just behind nearest corner, and kill the thing before stun effect.
>>390177486Gas grenades. Throwing in general is satisfying
>yfw Gas the Drones
>>390179312Man that mission was annoying. It's stupid how even touching the gas sealed your fate. So many retries.At least give us some protag plot armor!
>>390179312oh shiet, could be much easier just shoot them, without fckin gas. >>390177486double burst with smart module + anatomacal-aware scope chimera.
>>390181069>poor little white girl
>guy asks for help with mushroom forest>other guy tells him to reload a save and grindI hate it when people give bad, almost asinine advice. I hate it so much.
>>390182150Grind what? I'm just about to descend into caverns.
>>390173623Go normal. I fell for the oddities meme and it sucks dick. It's only useful if you decide to play as a stealth thief. For anything else, it just makes everything feel meaningless.Also, do yourself a favor and get cheat engine and configure it to use a speed up hack. The backtracking in this game is fucking awful. Nothing has been this bad since Morrowwind and at least that had the boots of blinding speed.
>>390182313Grind levels. He was told to level up. As if that would help him.Actually he finally told him the correct answer, but he fucked up one crucial detail. Which is arguably even worse than his original advice.
>>390182660>fucked up one crucial detail. Which is arguably even worse than his original adviceWhat exactly?
>>390181069You can literally go in, kill everybody and then gas the place and walk out the front door
>game has un-highlighting containers
>>390182880He told him to load a pre-DC save to search for an armor. Except that armor is in DC and it would take him about 2 minutes to pick it up. Except now he is going in the wrong direction.
>>390183219Kek.I heard CAU armor is useful in here.
>>390183323It's useful, but not the almost total invincibility this one gives. But since it's heavy with a huge AP penalty outside the forest CAU armor is a better choice for something you just walk around in.
>try not to make a stealth sniper because I end up playing that in every game like this>end up doing it anywayI hate crawlers so fucking much. those electric spiders were niggers too. what happened in the hollow earth incident? the faceless were created by the researchers but revolted and threw them into the mutagen tank which created tchort? was ezra one of the researchers who survived?
>>390184119Pretty much, but Ezra may have left by the time the revolt began. He was only visiting.
>>390184119Pretty sure Erza is supposed to be one of the old biocorp leaders, probably even older than that
>>390185464Hollow Earth was Old Biocorp, and Ezra was there shortly, like, days before the end. We just don't know for sure if he was still around when shit went down.
>>390184119>>390185464Yes if i remember it right Oculus have data on Erza, he was indeed some high ranked Biocorp employee (if you can even use that word). Hope to learn more about him later.Styg using his avatar on underrail forum, so i'm pretty sure he is very important.Good lord i can't wait for new dlc, wanna see Hexagon and all new underrail wonders.
>>390186560You know the expansion won't feature Hexagon, right?
where the fuck is the expansion FFS
>>390186560>Oculus have data on ErzaBut you don't know his real name.
>>390186769So he already said there will be no Hexagon? I remember he said that Expedition will feature some part of north underrail. Well that's pretty sad, anyway i'm sure something he will deliver something really cool anyway, You can see how matures his work, deep caverns was close to perfect.
>>390187016In due time. Patience.
>>390187052We know he was a Dragon of Old Biocorp. Very few names on that list.
>>390187198>So he already said there will be no Hexagon?Yes. It is confirmed that Hexagon is strictly sequel territory, because it would be too big and too complex to do in an expansion. Expedition will explore other parts of South Underrail, and if there will be other expansions, those will too.
I want stygg to make an isometric cyberpunk RPG with cooperate warfare and cool shitfuck midgame expansions
>>390187513Thanks for the info mate.
>>390187706If i were a producer of some AAA game studio i'd fought to death to have him work on a cyberpunk/sci-fi projects. Cause no shit, you can find something in underrail that cannot be found anywhere in game industry, it's even hard to find a good book with such an interesting story, i'm not even talking about sci-fi books.
>>390184119>>try not to make a stealth sniper because I end up playing that in every game like this>>end up doing it anywayI know that feel.
Infused pig leather is so much better than everything else it's not even funny.
>>390189293>tfw you have only 8 tailoring for molotovs
>>390189130>1 shot 1 kill>1 shot almost a kill => reload
>>390189823Nah, I don't know that feel. Dealing with misses and such is an important and enjoyable part of the game to me.
>>390187706Cyberpunk games don't take advantage enough of the massive flexibility in character design the setting offers. Cybernetic eyes or arms alone could have as many different models with different features as the entire perk systems of other games.
>>390190074agreed, just kiddin'
How viable is an acid pistol build ? i've only played a psi build so far.
>>390187954>dev is illiterate
>>390190307On another note, I think sniper rifles got to be the most customizable weapon in the entire game. I don't think any other weapon can have its behaviour changed as drastically as sniper rifles.You can make a traditional sniper rifle that shoots only once per turn with very high close range/move penalties that is capable of dealing over 3000 damage in one shot, therefore capable of 1-shoting literally everything in the game.Or a more tactical sniper rifle that shoots twice per turn with relatively low penalties (as low as 15% move and 12.5% close range so comparable to crossbows) that will probably cap at 1000-1500 or so, not enough for the toughest enemies.Or anything in between. I like that.
>>390191730I recognize that screenshot and file name from /indie/
>>390190520Acid pistol alone? You can get by, but not all that great.Chem/Energy pistol combined on the other hand is incredibly fun. Mad Chemist Incendiary Pistols are unbeatable when it comes to setting things on fire, nothing else can give you 80+% chance with every shot. Cryo is slightly less good, but still basically a better Cryokinesis with chance to freeze. Add in Electroshock pistols for chain lighting, and you have a really fucking fun repertoire with energy/acid/heat/cold/electric damage and a wide range of status effects to play with.
>>390190520Sadly among the weakest in the entire game. Your damage output will be low, I'm talking one of the lowest possible. You will also need to find a way to deal with acid-immune or resistant enemies such as mutants, deep worms, majority of robots, CAU if you join the drones, etc. >>390191842You could also recognize it from daily Underrial threads on /v/ from 2 years ago.
>>390190520Acid/incediary/electro for CC, amplified plasma pistol for killing. Make sure to take a healthy dose of throwing. Grenadier and 3 pointer really round out the build.
>>390190520>How viable is an acid pistol build ?Pretty weak. It's the absolute king of breaking the game though.
>>390192767What happens when you kill it like that?
>>390189293is it possible to find that anywhere without tailoring?>>390189823>keep reloading until you win initiative vs carnifex>>390190074it felt like the game was too punishing if you couldn't kill every enemy in one turn. if anyone was left alive you would end up stunned/frozen/exploded by grenades so you might as well just reload.
>>390193680>keep reloading until you win initiative vs carnifex>people claim that pistols are weak, but in reality you have first turn in every fight
>>390193680>stunnedEat a Bullhead.>frozenYeah, unfortunately that doesn't really have a reliable counter. Not much you can do against that other than take them out first. Fortunately enemies that can freeze are also rare.>explodedTurn on your shield, mate.
>>390193490Nothing not intended. The game doesn't recognize that you did it at all.>>390193598Pic related.>>390193680>if anyone was left alive you would end up stunned/frozen/exploded by grenades so you might as well just reload.There are tons of ways to protect yourself from all of those even if you fail to kill everyone. If you must hit absolutely every hit and kill everyone in the first turn in order to stay alive, you are simply bending RNG to your side to compensate for the shortcomings of your build.
>>390193598>>390194685Forgot the pic. Shit quality, but you should be able to figure out who's that guy on the floor.
>>390194325Yeah, pistol buils is arguably the best build against Carnifex since you can reach enough initiative to always act first.You can also abuse map transitions since that -10 initiative penalty still leaves you with enough to act first almost always.
Psi builds spoiled me so much, how do people even play the game whitout being able to stun anything that moves ?
>>390195129Throwing is a good trick.
>>390195129Kill anything that moves.
What are the stand out classes in this game
>>390195573Psi monk, traps, and stealth.
>>390195573any pure wizardpsi-monkstealth sniperheavy armor AR
>>390195806>become so accurate with burst you only kill one targetUnintentional gimp.
>>390195573Hard to say. It has a classless system and one of the strongest points of the game is that you can make literally dozens of builds with vastly different playstyles.Pure psi, psi monk, sniper, metal armor assault rifle , SMG, pistol, crossbow, pure unarmed, sledgehammer, knife, energy pistol, chemical pistol, pure throwing, I could go on and on. Then there are different types of armors, combining different weapon types, adding some psi only to support your main weapon, traps, stealth, etc.
>>390181232>only 99What a fucking pleb
>>390197373She'sa just a psychotic math teacher, not a chosen one.
*blocks ur path*
>>390181232If you side with the drones do you get to kill them all?
>>390195993It was hilarious when I realised what was happening, I didn't anticipate at all that I would actually become too good at killing people, especially since I made the mistake of my first crafted rifle having a compensator.Luckily by the time I realised how good smart modules were the problem had mostly resolved itself, but the midgame where I was reliably hitting 2-3 people per burst was the best.>>390198914>siding with the drones
>>390198612*realizes mutants have no mechanical DR/DT whatsoever**unsheathes pic related*Heh... nice try kiddo.
>>390198974drones are adorably incompetentthey're like little puppies with molotovs
>>390198914No, only south outpost in lower underrail.>>390198974>siding with fascists
>>390198612How to trigger two-headed mutant to appear?
>>390199276>protectorate protects communities from bandits and gives away food to the poor>free drones help bandits destroy communities and steal from the poor
Crossbow without traps a possibility? I know they have synergy and traps are really good, but after using them in an unfinished former playthrough I find them tedious to use. I would max throwing instead I'm thinking.
>>390199817No reason to max throwing.
>>390199446You can't. The harder you try, the smaller the chance he will appear.>>390199817I guess you could, but Deadly Snares are really hard to pass on.
Does somebody have that picture with the different builds you can try out? I remember there being a pretty interesting psi one I wanted to try but I forgot to save the picture.
>>390199264>they're like little puppies with molotovsYou know, you make a good point, anon.>>390199276Gas the drones, metro war now etc. etc.
>>390199264>drones are adorably incompetentQuite a few doesn't even know what exactly they are fighting for. I feel sorry for Kokoschka.
>>390199446>>390200007>two-headed mutantWhat is this?>>390200425"The outer circle are sad because the bomb did not kill the king; the inner circle are glad because the bomb killed somebody."
>>390199446What >>390200007 said is absolutely correct. It appeared to me only after I finally truly gave up.
>>390200020Look up NerdCommandoGameStudios on YouTube for a bunch of builds. They aren't perfect, maybe a little outdated, but a good start.
>>390200763Fucker who carries 4 XP oddity.
does anyone know when this is going to be on sale again?
>>390200763>What is this?A mutant with two heads. Master of disguise and hiding.
>only energy weapons are pistols
>>390201170No idea. It almost certainly will when the expansion comes, but when that will happen is anyone's guess. Other than that, keep an eye on big sales in general, the game usually participates, but not always.
>>390201354That's miniaturization for you.
>>390200990>>390200997>>390201239Well, time to reload before Depot A.Thanks, Styg.
>>390186560>Styg using his avatar on underrail forum, so i'm pretty sure he is very important.Ezra is not only Styg's avatar, he is one of the very few characters whose dialog remained virtually unchanged since its conception, using mostly Styg's own writing even to this day.Back in the earliest days when dialog was still very dry with almost no descriptive green text, Ezra already had his paragraph-long introduction. Even Tanner only had a single line back then.
>>390202196Don't do this to yourself, I'm serious. It isn't going to work. Be glad if it appears, but don't try to chase it.
>>390202196>beforeI found him after returning from DC, I went to Depot A just to check something about mutants. One guy on the forums claims he found him while visitng Depot A for the 1st time.>>390202323>Even Tanner only had a single line back then.Tanner used to look very different back then.
>>390202493>Tanner used to look very different back then.And he was very casual and friendly. Teasing you and laughing at your sarcastic comments. He was like a completely different person.
Coretech, Praetorian Security or JKK?
>>390203171Depends on build.
>>390203171All of them are very fun, it's hard to pick a best. You can make your decision based on traders, JKK has sneaky stuff, Coretech has electric gadgets and components, Praetorian has weapons and armors, parts and whatnot.If you are psi I recommend Praetorian though.
>>390202448>Don't do this to yourself, I'm serious. It isn't going to work. Be glad if it appears, but don't try to chase it.Alright, anon, I'll be sensible. I've only just made it to Junkyard, so I'll reload a couple of times and see what happens.Would I need to reload before entering the specific area, or before entering Depot A at all?>>390202493>One guy on the forums claims he found him while visiting Depot A for the first timeI think I found that post - the one who said he was a higher level, yeah? Do the mutants there respawn, or when you went back was it only the two-headed one?
>>390203145JKK has the best feels.RIP Vivian
>>390203462Is that just for the pillar?
>>390203554>Do the mutants there respawn, or when you went back was it only the two-headed one?Mutants and dogs respawn, muties do not.I can already tell you that 2-headed mutant spawns independently of the others, he does not replace any of them.
>>390203554>Would I need to reload before entering the specific area, or before entering Depot A at all?We simply don't know.>Do the mutants there respawn, or when you went back was it only the two-headed one?Mutants respawn, since they carry crafting components.
>>390203649The pillar and the whole Jookhela encounter.
>the vault dweller in the upper rail talking to a tchortist I'm the only one that found that ? i didn't took a screen thought.
>>390203565literally who?never heard about her.
>>390203698>I can already tell you that 2-headed mutant spawns independently of the others, he does not replace any of them.Cool. Thanks, Styg.>>390203780>Mutants respawn, since they carry crafting components.Huh, I never realised they respawn - I never went back to Depot A, I just saved in front of that guy in case I ever wanted to reference the conversation again. Thanks for the help, you two.>We just don't knowReload time!
>>390204617And so the cycle begins anew.
>>390203698>2-headed mutant spawns independently of the others, he does not replace any of themHow do you even know?
>>390205380He doesn't, the two head mutant doesn't exist, is a lie to trick people into reloading, there's nothing in the junkyard after you are done with the drill.
>>390204774I-it'll just be a couple of times, I promise.
>>390204339>i didn't took a screen thought
>>390205380Because by this point we know Depot A's enemy placement by heart and can tell that it doesn't replace anything.I can add another detail.The two-headed mutant's spawn location is not completely fixed, and might change depending on the direction you come from. Anon entered from the south, and that's where his mutant was. However I came from the east, and mine appeared right there.
>>390204617Styg wouldn't give you that clue. He doesn't like sharing esoteric knowledge with the public.
>>390205538See you in 243 days!
>>390206365That's an oddly specific number.
>>390206503Tell me about it.
>>390206327Oh. Who would then, Epeli? I've seen him post technical info on the forums, he seems nice.>>390206365T-thanks.That's a remarkably specific number, anon. I will remember that.
>>390206561It reminds me of a certain skype conversation for some reson.
>>390182789>One man who loves video games as much as you doJokes on him, I hate video games
>>390173623is this game anything like undertale?also where can I torrent it
>>390206710Epeli or Tygrende. I know Epeli posts on /indie/ while Tygrende posts both there and on /v/ threads. Including this one.
>>390206710Jesus, anon. Don't see too much into that number.I began my search for the mutant on the day the experimental version came out. I found it 243 days later.
>>390206990No.Basically at any of the usual sources.
>>390198974Drones are fucking retards but it's worth using them to drive Protectorate out of south Underrail as it's the worst thing that can ever happen to it.
>>390206998Ah, okay. I don't know as much about the devs of this game as I really should.>including this oneThanks for all the advice, Tygrende!>>390207005>Don't see too much into that numberDon't try to keep your voodoo secrets from me!No, I'm just kidding - I won't be that obsessed with reloading, I'll just try a couple times for fun and then keep going with my playthrough. I'm used to retrying for an event with low odds but I should get around to actually finishing the game this playthrough.
>>390207532>it's the worst thing that can ever happen to it.I dunno, being killed by ironheads and/or eaten by lurkers and/or raped by lunatics seems worse. Protectorate prevents that, drones make it happen.
>>390207934At least you die from the lurkers instead of being gassed and turned into a mutant.
>>390207532>peace, security and stability are the worst thing that can ever happen to itThe CAU are cute, CUTE!
>>390207861>I don't know as much about the devs of this game as I really should.Apparently. Neither of them are devs, despite the jokes we don't actually have devs here.
>>390208083That only happens to the drones.
>>390208462Keep telling yourself that.
>>390208207>Apparently. Neither of them are devs, despite the jokes we don't actually have devs here.Well, I can't see how that could possibly be confusing at all. Who are they, then?That was actually a typo, sorry anon. I intended to say 'dev' as in development, I only started playing the full release so I missed all the early patches, alphas and early threads.
>>390208139South Underrail is able to achieve those things on its own without a piece of shit dictatorship from the North going full Nazi on you for smallest insubordination.

>>390208912Find Arlane at SGS and ask her about rumors. She will mention the sailors talking about Silent Isle. Find the captain at Junkyard and ask him about it, after then you can ask him to take you there.

>>390208759>South Underrail is able to achieve those things on its ownThat's what they all say.
>>390208759>going full Nazi on you for smallest insubordinationYou mean like free drones executing people and sentencing an entire community to death for not subscribing to their point of view?

I just completed the game. I played a psionic punching monk with high crafting skills. The game was pretty hard around the middle, but I was an murderous barbarian at the end. Very, very strong build.Overall, this is an extremely hard game. It's like none other. They really throw a lot of shit at you near the end. (I liked Deep Caverns a lot. Fuck the haters. The atmosphere was top tier.)
>>390211272>The atmosphere was top tier.I agree. All that lore, too.
Just installed this, what am I in for? Which kind of build should I do for my first playthrough?
>>390210708Say what you will, he was a good leader. He turned SGS into one of the best stations in the south, watched out for his citizens, and encouraged you to adopt his policies.
>>390211407>Just installed this, what am I in for?Pretty challenging classic cRPG.>Which kind of build should I do for my first playthrough?Whatever you want. Metal armor assault rifle and pure psi are among the strongest and most straight-forward.
Remember that Siphoners are your friends, they just want to be loved.
>>390211272It's an extremely well-designed area. Shame so many people buy into the bitching and go in with a shit mindset.
>>390211385In a recent patch, Styg made it easier to befriend the Faceless. Specifically, the encounter at Rail Crossing doesn't hurt you. You can be friends with them as long as you help the 2 patrols. That's it.If you accomplish that, they tell you critical plot information about the origins of the Faceless and Tchort.
>>390211643I love them so much I wear them on my feet.
>>390211640Is any kind of build viable for the game? Or do I have to keep min-maxing my character like an idiot?
>>390211732Didn't know it was made easier, neat.
>>390211272Mind posting your build? I've been considering a psimonk.
>>390211272>punching people = monkI can't wait for this meme to end
>>390211801Game is reasonably hard and will fuck you for jack of all trades, it's not PoE. Find a niche and stick to it.
I want to be a Faceless Centaur!
>>390211801As long as you put some effort into making a working build and understand the game mechanics you will be fine. As long as you don't do something stupid like a 3 STR sledgehammer build or a gun build with no points in guns, anything is viable.
>>390211906Psi monk sounds better than a psi martial artist.
>>390183008Can't you press a button on your keyboard to highlight them all?
>>390211801No, not any kind, although an experienced player could probably do it with anything.Minmaxing and metagaming is not necessary, but you should have a focus and remember that what you build is what you'll have to play. Think about how your build is going to play before you settle on one. Don't pick sledgehammers if you want something more creative than hitting things until they die, don't pick traps if sneaking around and turning the place into a minefield before engaging the enemy doesn't sound like your thing, and so on.Have a general idea about the archetype, like 'I want to be a psyker' or 'I want to tank and gun', then understand which attributes, skills, and feats will help you with that. Make sure to browse the complete feat list to get a general idea about their pre-requirements and at what point they'll become available to you.Other than that, just try to have fun.
>>390212340Not the secret ones. The cursor will still change when it hovers over them though.
>>390211732Wait, was it really? Shouldn't the changelog have mentioned something like that?
>>390211732>You can be friends with them as long as you help the 2 patrolsAre there 2?I thought there was just the one patrol looking for something
>>390212426>although an experienced player could probably do it with anything.Yeah. As a matter of fact you canbeat the entire game with nothing but traps, did that.
I loved New Vegas and I liked the backstory and lore of the first two Fallouts but never played them, will I enjoy Underrail?
>>390213012>but never played themHard to tell. It would be probably better to play Fallout first.Did you play Deus Ex or System Shock?
>>390213012Hard to say, Underrail is not a Fallout-style game. There are other games that would tell us more, have you for example played System Shock? Deus Ex? Might and Magic games?
>>390213163>>390213194Yeah, System Shock 2 and Deus Ex, loved them
Still salty as fuck sniper rifles will be unusable on jet skis. I will have to play pretend with a fucking A-A scope/smart module chimera assault rifle since that's the closest it gets to a sniper rifle, it's stupid. I would be fine if they banned all 2-handers.Feel bad for sledges, too.
>>390213267I'd say give it a go then. Game is nowhere near as verbose and story centric as the Fallouts were, but gameplay is top notch and follows similar design principles as SS and DX.
>>390213267Underrail takes a lot from those, so you will probably like it.
>>390213012if you don't have shit taste you will enjoy underrail
>>390213478>>390213563>>390213598Thanks.Also, should I pirate it or get it on Steam?
>>390213746Pirate to see if you like it, buy if you do.
>>390213746you can get it on gog, which is better than steam
>>390213746Up to you, really. The game is not expensive at all, but if you are not certain about it no one can really blame you for pirating and making your decision later. The game is not for everyone, but if you like it, you know the drill.
>activate the turrets to help you fight the faceless and save buzzer>mfw the turrets don't do anything
>>390187513I assume hexagon is what will explain the rest of biocorp and north underrail? I'm kinda hoping styg will expand on occulus and more of the godmen at least with expansion. I felt so disapponted we only had one mission when we found it. I thought i was going to spy on all sort of people and shit.
is he right? if you enjoy a game for 130 hours but the last area is too hard should you give it a negative review?
Does this game have waifus? This is important.
>>390212724The mind reader, the one stranded faceless in core city in a cage and the group looking for acid hunters info near foundry. From what i noticed, befriending all 3 grants you info, 2 lets you walk around them and 1, lets you be at peace as long you don't go near them.
>>390213012Play first two Fallouts first because Underrail has vastly better combat. Same with Age of Decadence, both games are Black Isle combat done right. And there's Dungeon Rats, too.Play Fallouts (including Tactics), then Underrail.
>>390215576Oh, that's how it's always been. But you are slightly wrong-If you kill the caged Faceless they will go apeshit, no matter what else you've done.
Do we need to find all oddities to get to level 25 or is it doable without finding all oddities? I had to burst my balls to get some like the JKK one and the black eel gang without making everyone shoot me on sight, and i don't even know if i can get insect repellent since the dungeon for it seems locked behind JKK mission
>>390215716What about those faceless west of core city in a cavern? They shoot me on sight, unsure if i kill em will make everyone upset
>>390215709That's assuming he is first and foremost looking for good combat. We don't know that.
>>390213194>Underrail is not a Fallout-style game.what? it's literally like fallout without any party members.
>>390215820It doesn't, they only judge you for situations where cooperation was a possibility. When they shoot on sight they don't expect you to be a good boy and die.The game tracks the number of Faceless you have killed, but this is not used for your reputation with them or for anything else. Yet.
>>390215925Prolly bugged, and i would reload your save and let those faceless do whatever they want. It isn't worth saving buzzer, unless you are fine with in being in a world of pain later
>>390216132I loaded a save from the previous area, same shit happens. I press the switch, and they sit there with permanent short circuit
>>390216558Works on my machine, try pressing it until it works.
>>390216558It's probably a bug. I have pressed the switch, and for me the turrets turn blue and start attacking the mindreader.But seriously, cooperating with them is better. If you have enough persuasion you can even convince him to leave Buzzer alone.
>>390217338>accidentaly killed some faceless with psi bolts>now they are all hostile to me even thought i want to help themIt hurts.
>>390217436Where did you kill it?
>>390217587Rail crossing, i was aiming at the camera.
>>390217772Downstairs? Don't sweat it, only the mindreader matters. He shouldn't turn hostile unless you attack him personally.I sometimes take the direct approach with them and enter through the front door to simply mental breakdown the ones downstairs, then go negotiate with the leader.
I had a lot of fun with traps and grenades. Get like 10 enemies stuck at a door and then toss the entire action bar down the other side. I killed the entire Free Drones in like 3 turns
>>390218091I lockpicked buzzer off, and he went berserk on the faceless.
>>390173623Undertale or Underrail, what should I buy? They both have similar names.
how am I supposed to kill heavily armored enemies with a knife
>>390218520Well, roll with it if you are fine with that, but it means you won't ever be friends with them. You can still be neutral though.With Buzzer you basically have three options, help him and ruin your rep with the Faceless, let the Faceless kill him and stay pals, or if you are good enough at persuading beg them to let him live without ruining your rep.
>>390218783That's implying i didn't use him as faceless bait.
>>390218669Expose Weakness and/or Cut-throat for a billion damage.
>>390218947>mfw I took more evasion/escape abilities that don't work when I could've taken expose weakness
>>390218669Teleport behind them
>>390218902It doesn't matter technically who was it that killed him, the problem is that he is dead and it's indirectly your fault. You know, they have mindreaders. They'll know.
>>390179596I still havent beaten this mission, I went a stealth sniper/AR build and I cant deal with the millions of dudes in there. Ive retried like 50 times.
>>390213880Muscle Wizzard will always be better
>>390211905Feats are Taste for Blood, Locus of Control, Combo, Vile Weaponry, Expose Weakness, Fancy Footwork, Premeditation, Lightning Punches, Nimble, and Sprint.You want 10 WIS and 14 DEX to make all that work. With 14 DEX, you can equip a fist weapon and attack like 12 times per round, doing crazy damage with all your unarmed feats.My skills were Melee, Thought Control, Psychokineses (max all 3 of these combat skills), Tailoring (for crafting fist weapons and light armor), Electronics (for shields and augmenting fist weapons), Mechanics, Hacking, and Lockpicking.Locus of Control and Mind Control spells make combat an absolute joke. You incapacitate entire teams of enemies, then close in and pulverize. ALWAYS keep Force Emission on, light armor, and equip a power fist and shield. PULVERIZE.
>>390219347You don't have to kill them though, you just need to get out of there alive and preferably still human.
Is anything gonna transfer to the expansion as far as plot choices go? I was thinking about playing again doing stuff I hadn't done before. My first playthrough heavy armor AR was so awful, just tank pray'n'spray with sprint being my holy grail ability.
>>390215576I'm telling you, Styg just patched it. Now helping the 2 patrols ALONE will befriend them and give you the plot information. You do not to get all 3 events, but I think you need to save both patrols.I just went through this and got the plot info, and went on a murderous rampage in Rail Crossing earlier.
>>390217338I am 100% sure that if you help the faceless at foundry and core city, and then kill every other faceless you find until the deep cavers you still get friendly with them and can get the infojust make sure you talk to them before you talk to the tchorists in the deep caverns
>>390219476I made it to the next room maybe 3 times but Im just too wimpy to take all their shots trying to run through, always get detected right past the security room.
>>390219531Probably not much, it's a mid-game expansion in a different location. Maybe a new quest for a certain faction if we are lucky.
>>390212714Styg himself said it in a forum post, but it's not in the patch notes. I think he believed the Rail Crossing event locked too many people out of plot-critical information.It would have for me. A perfectly reasonable person would've killed the mind reader in that situation.
>>390219747>I think he believed the Rail Crossing event locked too many people out of plot-critical information.Dammit Styg, don't spoonfeed people!
Bro when the FUCK is the expansion coming out????
>>390219347You can kill them all before releasing the gas
>>390219062There's a CheatEngine table for Underrail you could use to edit your character. I used it one time when I fucked up instead of losing progress.
>>390219173The faceless are extremely practical and pragmatic. The death of the mindreader does not ruin your potential neutral/friendly disposition with the Faceless later on in the game. However, if you are going to fuck with the Faceless, buzzer's shop should be the only time.
When does the game pick up?I played for like 45 minutes and it was utterly boring
>>390220423Or he could just wait until next time he gets to pick a feat. Those feats would be more immediately useful, but it's not like Uncanny Dodge and Evasive Maneuvers are bad.
>>390219409Thanks anon, I really appreciate it.
>>390220549when your taste improves
>>390220549Probably after depot A since you get to do whatever you want and can go pretty much anywhere
>>390220650You can't seriously claim that sitting in a cave stabbing rats or doing the tutorial or whatever the first hour or so is is all that fun
>>390220549After you finish fetching the damm drill.What build are you going for ?
>>390220776high dex gunslinger, i thinkA friend told me it was the best way for a first runthrough
>>390220549You are still doing the extended tutorial.After finishing Depot A the map will open up, you will get access to the nearly complete selection of weapons and materials, the wider train and boat system, and two big and two small quest hubs as well as some faction quests.
>>390220749you mean learning the game mechanics and taking in the setting, yes I did find that fun
>>390220526Right, right, got the message. I'll try to find Styg's post about this, if you are correct I'll stop spreading fake news from now on.
>>390220627Hang in there until you can start crafting awesome energy shields. It's only then that you become an invincible combat god. Until that point, you're squishy and can die fast. Fortunately, you can really screw with the enemy AI with Mind Control spells and EMP grenades and Molotov Cocktails (even with minimal Throwing skills).
>time manipulation>you can't reverse timeWhy is this allowed ?
>>390177486Stealth overall, really enjoyed it. Too bad not many, if any cRPGs got good stealth or have it to begin with.
How do I make a full psi build properly? Are there any trap choices/essential picks? I don't want to have to redo everything thanks to a shitty build.
>Mutant Dog Leather Tabi Boots>Equip: Intimidation increased by 5
>>39022356010wisOkayish intMake sure you dont miss any pillars (ingame structures)Read all possible feats thoroughlyGood luck.
>>390223560Not much really, it's near impossible to build full psi wrong unless you go full retard.Start with 10 WILL, max all three schools. There. That's it.For a slightly more complicated answer, exactly how you want to build it depends on whether you want to go psychosis or tranquility. Tranquility works best as a stealthy, mobile fast cannon that doesn't get hit, psychisus make great tanks.But this is just a general rule, people have made very effective tranquility tanks and glass cannon psychos before. So feel free to build whatever you want.Must have feats are Premeditation and Locus of Control, rest is free choice, depending on your build.
>>390223789You have to admit, no sane person would wrap their feet in something soaked in acid.
>>390224310>Psychosis>Tankwhy ?, it gives you a crit on demand, its literally made for glasscannonfull crit damage cryokinetic orb kills pretty much everything as fucking aoe
>>390224513I imagined that goofy anime slippers would just zero your intimidation score, but making them out of mutant dog leather probably means you're some kind of psycho
>>390224968Because Survival Instincts has good synergy with Psychosis, and because most Psychosis players will naturally gravitate to the heavier psi armors to mitigate the cost increase.
>>390210379>with adequate leadership>there are liens posting in this very thread
>>390225306Just because you take a vest or riot armor doesn't mean you will be tanking anything, psi more than gives you enough tools to never have to take a hitand i honestly don't get why would anybody use survival instincts, you never want to be on 30% hp on purpose, not even for 30% crit, hell with more damage you don't really need to crit more than once and thats why you have the crit on demand talenteven if you were trying to get more crits, electrostatic electricity is probably more than enough and doesn't put you in the risk of being in low hp
>gas the drones
>>390224310>Max all 3 schoolsNo. Psychokinesis is only worthwhile up to being able to cast force field and electrokinesis unless you're doing psi monk.
Is psi ever explained ? or is just an excuse to put magic ? pic unrelated.
I forgot how to make good energy shields. Low frequency is the way to go, right?>>390226793Not directly but there are hints.
>>390226712you get 10% of your psychokinesis as synergy for both thought control and metathermicsIts also incredibly important since it improves the damage from both electrokinesis and electrokinetic imprint which are basically your only way of dealing with robots and turrets besides EMP grenades
>>390227343Honestly, every build benefits from Throwing, and a psi character should have high Electronics anyway.
>>390227343You don't really need the synergy on top of what thought control and metathermics give each other and your massive Will in my opinion. With a minimal investment in throwing and just enough psychokinesis for electro and force field instead you can take care of turrets and bots just fine. The other two schools are way better for the rest of the enemies in the game. The new school as well I imagine. From a pure 'wizard' standpoint the other two schools are more important and you can diversify into the crafting you have the INT for instead.
>>390228063you can still get the proper crafting with the 3 schools, and i might have thought that just enough for electrokinesis was enough until arke power plant last floor, i was really glad to have proper psychokinesis there
>put traps in every square of coretech warehouse>the agents eat half of themAtleast the agents drop some sweet loot.
>>390228647To each their own. EMPs, force field for cover and base electrokinesis was enough for me. Frag grenades for damage.For me it's mostly how lack luster the higher level spells like implosion are.
would I be a retard to not take quick tinkering
>>390230901depends, are you planning on abusing traps ?
>>390231074somewhat, but I find them less easily abusable when not using ranged weapons. is this perk seriously letting me drop a trap in combat every few turns for not even any AP>>390231003I guess I'll need to take it then
>>390231189Yeah it's kind of broken but makes using traps really fun, so... decent tradeoff.
>yfw Robot Assault as a pure psi char
Is the expansion out? How are shotguns?
>>390232663I AM ZEUS IN THE FLESH!
Where are the save files located?I don't want to start over on my new PC.
>>390222346Shit would be too OP, just look at D&D.
>>390234087if you are on windows 7Documents/My Games/Underrailif not they are probably on the same place or something like it
>>390227080>Low frequency is the way to go, right?Yes, double low and efficent is overall the best.
>>390230901Shit's broken, don't take it.
>>390215093Literally everything mentioned in this review is what makes Deep Caverns good.>lots of exploration>limited supplies to increase difficulty>new challenging enemies with unique abilities that break the mold and force the player to adapt>challenging final boss, as it should be since it's a fucking final boss>solid, optional logical puzzle to weaken said bkss>tons of new lore to read>all of this is somehow an "issue"How the fuck do scrubs like this even reach Deep Caverns?
It is actually possible to end the game with all the factions hostile to you ?
>>390236504Making SGS hostile breaks the main questline, but you could slaughter them after returning from DC and still take the train to end the game. You also need to be on good terms with at least one of the oligarchs until you find acid hunters.
What you guys think of Nerd Commando's game?
>>390236812His builds are alright, but you can do a lot better.
I got around halfway (I think?) as a wizard, lost my HDD and didn't start againWhat's the most FUN way to play? I've always thought scientist (energy guns, high crafting) might have been pretty cool. Or maybe knives+stealth?
>le funny crossbow man>throwing net>shock bolt>flashbangthis shit really fucks my dick>>390237641stealth, traps and throwing are maximum fun skills
>>390237716If you struggle with nets so much, either take Escape Artist or craft infused siphoner leather tabis.Shock bolts are pretty nasty if you don't have Thick Skull or Bullhead pills, but with a bit of good positioning you should be able to survive one turn. Never found flashbangs to be much of a problem since more often than not another enemy will break the effect before it's even your turn. Worst case scenario you lose one turn, can be dealt with.
