Is there an up-to-date guide to compiling this in Visual Studio?
I've pulled the Git repo into Visual Studio, and I'm busy stomping on compliation errors. So far I've just been making sure I've got all my dependencies, but I'm getting a lot of ambiguous call errors that I'm guessing weren't a problem for the developers.

EDIT
Most common errors are dump in dump.cpp not taking two arguments, and read_from_file_optional being an ambiguous call to overloaded function in serveral cpps.

I am super tired and greatly amused by misreading that as "armor made from methamphetamine".

Isn't the NPC system how you deal with skill rust and avoiding omnicompetence? Tell your NPC grunts to practice and craft while you're off adventuring and scrounging. Have them specialize?
Haha, then some grog who prefers crafting can make some Recettear-style crafting management mod that makes the NPCs do the pesky adventuring for you.

Does anyone use the android version, from the app store? I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to remap the "open keyboard" button - there's still an issue with the default key "back" shutting down the game if you try to use the keyboard more than once.

I think that's an issue with the latest stable. If you find one of the newest Experimental build .apk files and use that, it should fix that issue. At least, it did for me!

It's honestly incredible that they've got CDDA running well on a phone in the first place.
Yeah, the little bits I've played have been pretty smooth.

How do addictions work? I'm getting the hang of this game and have what seems like a reasonable start as a hobo, but I've got the shakes something fierce. Can I try to taper off or do I need to go cold turkey?

Angry Diplomat posted:

Tapering off is generally best right at the very start; once you have a good safehouse and a decent stockpile of survival supplies, you can try going cold turkey. The penalties for severe withdrawal are unpleasant - best to avoid having those coincide with active looting or crafting.
Thanks! But now I realize I don't actually know what any of the timing is - when is it safe to take another drink? I've been putting off going into town until the shakes go away, mostly just smashing up shacks for wood and foraging in the woods.
Does addiction still function like on the wiki? Start at 20, wait through 200 minutes of withdrawal to get to 9, 90 minutes to get to 3, and so on?

Vat grown bodyguard, 14 strength is enough to just grab a folding wooden frame with a folding wooden box, but I got frustrated with trying to manage the volume so I just went with the "drag ground objects". Took a while and it was getting dark so I dropped the stash and dashed off to an LMOE shelter I found. I'll finish in the morning.

Things have been going pretty good so far. Don't have a ton of gear, but I found a working electric semi and a decent ruined cabin to camp in. The city is far away and on the other side of a river, I think I'm going to take a bit to salvage what I can nearby and practice some skills.

Got a what I think is some kind of spider pit nearby - no spiders on the surface yet, but I there's a hole down a z level full of webs. I might try to clear it out before I leave. Maybe with fire.

Fair, but I think I'm a little stuck as to what I should do - this is first game that I haven't been slaughtered immediately. I've found a decent spot for a breather, there's enough acorns and forage for me to live off vegetable sandwiches for a while, and I'm not sure how long I should spend building the place up. I need to hit the city to get more tools - at least a wrench.
But the city is really far away, not on the same map screen, on the other side of the river, and the only bridge is almost as far in the other direction.

And I just realized there's a roadblock with at least a riot turret in the way. I don't know if I can drive a semi through a roadblock or not, I might have to take it across the fields and hope for the best.

Playing on stable.

The one turret I saw was specifically a riot turret.
I also snuck past a MiGo (and a bunch of dead college students. It was in the open, so I think im just going to try and ram that too.

I think I'm going to strip down a couple wrecks before packing up and moving on. I need to boost my Mechanics to 4 to strip composite armor off a military truck - definitely planning to cart that off for whenever I can find tools to install it.

I'd like to try ramming the roadblock, but I'm worried about damaging my electric semi. I don't have any way to fix it yet. Maybe drive in reverse to let the trunk take the impact.

Just found out there's a difference between the lifting and jacking qualities, which is why the makeshift jack wasn't working out. Also unfortunately means my character wasn't just picking up the side of the truck instead of using a jack.

Still camped out, grinding up mechanics. Forage is getting a bit thin, so I think I will move on when I can strip the armor off the military truck. Also found out the semi has (mostly intact) solar panels, so that's incredibly sweet - I was worried about rationing electricity. I think I'm going to bolt on extra headlights to use a light source for night-time crafting.
Might move on down the road and use practice targets to train up ranged skills.

The first couple times, the skill grind has actually been pretty satisfying, but next time I think I'm just going to crank up the skill pool before I get sick of grinding.

Also, flipping through the vehicle menu, there's apparently a yoke and harness? One of my long term goals is now to build a roach coach, pulled by giant roaches.

Edit: Speaking of nutrition, I haven't noticed any vitamin issues and have mostly been living off veggie sandwiches. Would it have anything to do with my character going from morbidly obese to overweight?

Stripped off all the armor from the military vehicle to use later. Added two squares of wood armor and two squares of wood ram to the front, but the forage is getting thin enough around here I think I need to move on.

Oh man, I almost forgot, I should take a detour to the helicopter crash and see what I can salvage.

Well, back on the road. I ran over the MiGo yelling "WELCOME TO EARTH!". It mimiced me just as the ram made impact. It's now a couple gallons of lamp oil.

Rats, so, I successfully backed into the first riot turret, but I tried ramming my way backwards through the roadblock, got stuck, had to dive out the door and get in a lucky hit on the other turret. Truck seems to be okay, just need to get it unstuck. Unfortunately I think I crushed most of the loot, and worst of all I can't find my toolbelt and a couple of my tools anywhere. I hope they didn't fall out or get destroyed or something.

Found a pair of NPCs in a desolate barn on the side of the road. One was a hallucinating psycho who chased me around with a trench knife, got stuck on a tree, and took 6 rounds of 30-06 to bring down, and the other gave me a quest to find a relic that I could hear despite being deaf from only having a makeshift silencer and no earplugs.
Still in the middle of nowhere.

Then down the road I found a mostly intact APC with an M2 turret. It's just mocking me, I keep finding all this stuff, but I dont have the tools to install it or more storage space.
I think the most sensible course of action is to strip off what I can and stash it for later.
