Stone walls for walls, need 24 rocks total. No nails needed. For the roof the log and sod roof, which uses logs and two by fours, unlike the normal wooden roof which uses two by fours and nails.

That said, you still need a tool with hammering and digging to construct those.

However, for doors you'll need a few nails. The makeshift door doesn't need nails, but it does need an empty door frame... which does use nails.

I suppose you can make a one-tile vehicle and create a door there.

'course, there's also metal doors. Doesn't require nails. Spikes from scrap metal. Only difficult thing to find are steel platings or sheet metals.

Are you using the launcher? Maybe try a re-install.

Did you ever change the font, and maybe the ttf file isn't there?

I use the launcher and a reinstall usually fixes anything for me, but I haven't had too many problems.

I tried manually installing before, no luck. I used the launcher just now, same deal.

I saw plenty of .tff files inside the game directory so that shouldn't be it either. I never changed the font.

I'm gonna check if updating my java helps.

EDIT: Did not help. I'm stuck with this.

By any chance, is the game on a hidden folder/invisible folder?

It's a normal folder.

I've noticed this only affects the graphical builds. Ex. 6518 Curses works just fine.

Modders can add paper or plastic bags as 'casings' for paper flintlock cartridges.

Does anybody knows any alternative finds to find meat besides hunting?

I have seen, rarely, an anthill spawn close enough to a lab that ants spawn in the lab itself and on the first floor down... and if there's a dissector, bam, meat and corpses.
This is the text that goes under the post, and there ^ is the post, so this is where it goes.

Does fishing count as hunting?

Splint, as for player.
You should be able to see the "healing" status in NPC status menu if the splint is worn correctly.

Thanks, Coolthulhu. I will try that.

*update - Yepp, that works. There is "Started recovery" status.

Another question - it seems that NPC's drop and do not use anything that raises their encumbrance on single body part above 20. I'm trying to make them wear armored leather jacket + military rucksack and they always drop either of those if they already wear another.

Is that assumption correct?

if you think you're a young badass in training, jump into a slime pit, if you survive, craft a ton of splints, good training though if you do, but you'll be spaghetti arms and legs. that might get you from where ever, to about 10, i think?

Slime pits imo are easy to clear out

Is there any way to reset an overmap? Or at least re-hide the revealed area again?

Basically, on the run I'm doing, I was testing how city spacing worked, since I didn't know which number meant cities spaced far away from each other.

After testing, due to my habit of saving regularly in case of crash, I went and saved the game despite revealing a chunk of map.

So, any way to reset one particular map chunk in the game?
