Settlements - a living world


I have played for two virtual months now and I see no sign of human habitation except for my camp and the refugee centre. There are scattered NPCs around who seem to be entering various buildings as if scavenging but they never use anything. Wouldn’t it be great if NPCs could at least barricade themselves in buildings and several NPCs establishing groups over time? I’d love to pass next to a camp occupied by people who previously struggled alone.

Yes, it would be great.

Yes, NPC AI is hard.

Yes, Kevin, dpwb, and I are working on it, but progress is slow.

Please contribute more NPCs outside of the Refuge Center or Tacoma Commune, like cursedtwist’s new city survivor NPCs.
