About this mod

A total world overhaul for Kenshi. New factions, New Locations, New textures, New models including buildings, armor, weapons, tools & items. We've updated almost every old city to have a new layout or have added to them to give them more definition in their own right. New mechanics and Old Mechanics touched upon. It is indeed, Kenshi 1.5.

Permissions and credits

This mod has been in development since August of 2019, on that note this mod is still very far from finished. The current development cycle at this time is the Tech Update. Players can Give feedback and join development streams on the Guilded Server Below.

The Mission

Our community overhaul can be better described as a "Kenshi Plus" Or as the Community calls it. Kenshi 1.5!

More content, more choices, more fun. The goal is to offer a deeper and more challenging Kenshi experience without straying too far from the original game's theme. This is a TOTAL overhaul. Meaning that everything is being rebuilt from the ground up piece by piece.
Nearly all cities have been recreated with better layouts and interesting architecture. Which in turn has increased the appearance, size, and functionality of the city.
Most Factions will be given an identity, to distinguish them from others and increase player immersion.
We're aiming to increase the number of player quests that the player can partake in to give it that traditional RPG feel.
Renowned modders from all over the world have pooled their resources into the overhaul with the sole purpose of improving the game we all know and love.

Interview with Nexus Mods


It is not recommended to play with "Foliage" Mods. It won't really impact your game but it can cause floating buildings. Please try genesis alone beforehand. We have made our own tweaks to foliage and textures.

Gameplay, Utility, & Mechanical Changes

  • Max Faction Size: 256
  • Max Squad Size: 50
  • Max Number Attack Slots: 5 - You can change this by putting your preferred attack slot mod AFTER genesis.
  • Days Per Year: 365 - This has two major changes. This makes seasons longer to the benefit AND hinderance of the player.
  • Sunrise: 4
  • Sunset: 22 - Does not affect shops OR venge lasers
  • Custom Map Included - Place your own preferred map AFTER genesis.
  • Light visuals have been changed. Intensity scaled-down & radius increased. This provides a much more natural blending of light sources. - If you are using darker nights you MAY want to download the darker nights LIGHTS mod!
