  1. Regarding load order, I wonder if the approach used for Sequential Mod Loader for Invisible Inc modding could be adapted for Griftlands? The modding so far looks quite similar to that, and determining load order is really useful there. https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=580661011 lib_sequentialModLoader.lua@RageLeague
  2. Heyyyy, a familiar sentiment :'D
  3. Sweet, can't wait to try this out, thank you! Question, is there any ETA on tools to import custom graphics into the game (icons, anims, anim reskins)? Would go a long way towards making interesting new cards and NPCs and the like.
  4. This place is dead, the party's over here:https://discordapp.com/invite/aQrXEse
  5. *crying softly* https://discordapp.com/invite/aQrXEse << our unofficial Discord if you ever want poke around and see what the community is up to (memes). No pressure though. Also, Shopcat has infiltrated this DST meme thread like it's malware... highly appropriate In an effort to keep this ontopic this counts as a meme, right? All I have are InvInc crossovers sorry
  6. There's a topic? :'''D I couldn't tell, I saw people doubting the glory of Shoppecatte/The One Feline Most Mercantile and couldn't let that stand... (But yeah, crawling back to my hole now. I hope this answers any and all questions about how to use the Shopcat image, the original question.)
  7. The point isn't "oh she doesn't get what the other guy wants from her so she's other stupid or acting stupid to mess with him". She might be a literal cat with augmented intelligence (who is apparently an excellent hacker and black market software dealer, but who struggles to understand her human customers sometimes). She might be an AI that has embraced its cat identity and is trying to guess what Monst3r wants from her the same way your search engine tries to autocomplete your queries. She might be a normal human who is deliberately pretending to be a cat and is REALLY committed to the act. It feels very reductive, and missing the point of the humour and mystery of this character's design to boil it down to "idiot or troll". It makes sense in a cyberpunk setting like InvInc and is one of the funnier bits of worldbuilding in a game that, in many ways, is pretty dark. Also, the additional line from her about a mouse, said AFTER Monst3r disconnects and she has no reason to keep up the act, does imply to me that it's not just an act. That seems like the point of that particular bit of lore. Like, Monst3r (this middle-aged human man who's her market competitor) is SO exasperated at what he ASSUMES is really dedicated RPing, but the RPing doesn't stop when he's not around. Just my two cents though. I do wish more people would play the game.
  8. Also, here's a pretty good summary of Shopcat's personality for those who are curious. (can also be read here if you have trouble reading it in the image or need a transcript: https://iiwiki.werp.site/lore:datalogs#monst3r ) More Shopcat goodness: SHOPCAT: You're calling from INSIDE the K&O firewall? Not cool, man! I don't need that kind of heat!! (Seriously, who do I gotta bribe to get a Shopcat T-shirt at the Klei merch store? Shopcat on a black background, it'd look amazing. Throw in another one with Incognita while we're at it... ) Anyway. Who is Shopcat? How to use the Shopcat reaction? Shopcat is an enigma. A mystery. Simultaneously a cat and not a cat until actually observed to be one. Presumably alive. And happy to sell you the softest of warez. Such is Shopcat.
  9. Here's an idea. People who don't know how to use the Shopcat reaction image should go and actually play the game, or leave it alone (as anything else they don't have context for). I for one am thrilled Klei finally remembered Invisible Inc. exists again. :P (Seconded, go play the game.) We've had a Shopcat emoji on the unofficial InvInc Discord for a while now, and I'm pretty sure we use it differently... but I cannot for the life of me articulate HOW we actually use it, so. XD
  10. General priorities for upgrades go something like this: Either Speed or Anarchy first. More Speed is always good, but expensive. However, a single upgrade to Anarchy 2 yields a qualitative change, since you can now pickpocket guards for items and cash. You can usually wait until day 2 or so before needing to upgrade strength at all, and extra Speed offsets the encumbrance penalty. With Dr. Xu, though, it's usually a good idea to increase his Speed first just to get him to the baseline of a regular agent. Agreed regarding the synergy, though, Dr. Xu plays more into an "avoid, avoid, avoid" strategy for daemons. Btw, since the forum is really inactive, you are highly encouraged to join the II Discord server:https://discordapp.com/invite/aQrXEse
  11. I poked around and found this: https://discord.com/invite/upVSGA8 (from https://www.reddit.com/r/griftlands/comments/g961xa/discord_channel/ ) Also I did some Griftlands x Invisible Inc crossover art! More may be to come. I've been itching to draw Internationale as a member of the Rise since a random Rise Kra'deshi in Sal's campaign addressed me as "comrade".
  12. Too late, already working on my 50k word crossover fanfic :P
  13. I love Smith, can't wait to play him. Also someone on the II Discord pointed out that the term "Kra'deshi" sounds familiar... @Kevin you sneaky sneak.
