Just a day after its release, Kingdom Come: Deliverance players have already modded what is arguably one of the game’s most annoying features, and that’s its save system.
I’m in the middle of playing KC:D right now, and I’ll save most of my comments for my review, but I will say that one thing I don’t understand is the game’s restrictive save system. Basically, in order to save in KC:D, you must either start a new story quest, sleep, or drink Savior Schnapps, a consumable item that you must purchase from traders in the game. There’s no quicksave system—in a massive, open-world RPG.
I get that some players might like the “challenge” that this save system provides, but personally I just think it gets in the way and dissuades players from experimenting, lest they end up in jail with a broken arm and can’t reload their previous progress. If that’s how some players want to play, then give them a Fallout 4–style survival mode. Otherwise, give me my quicksave.
Fortunately, there are players out there who feel the same way and have taken the game’s save system into their own hands. Unfortunately, this will only apply for PC players.
Unlimited Saving is a KC:D mod that basically gives players an infinite supply of Saviour Schnapps. The only requirement to take advantage of this mod is that you already have one Saviour Schnapps in your inventory. However, if you don’t want to download a mod to save whenever you’d like, you can also follow these instructions on the game’s Steam forum page. Just do so at your own risk.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is already making headlines for its plethora of bugs (to which I can personally attest) and its massive day-one patch, so the game is still clearly something of a work in progress. Maybe developer Warhorse Studios will introduce a normal save system in a patch, or maybe it will role-play as its players’ feudal lord and crack down on these mods. Or maybe the newly crowned king THQ Nordic will restore order to the land.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
