If they have the Sewing skill, that adds an extra +2 Max Consumable Stack, and the "Keeps Hidden Pouches" trait adds 10 Light Carry Capacity, 10 Max Carry Capacity, and 1 Max Consumable Stack.A character with backpacking and resourcefulness gets 2 extra pocket slots, or 12 slots overall - with a large backpack equipped. They can stack consumable items 6 deep and have greatly increased light encumbrance limit. I don’t think you can get more carrying capacity than that.
I have a char with this setup who has ‘exuberant’ trait giving +50 stamina and -30 fatigue rate. She’s like a Para, she can carry 24 pipe bombs in her pants alone.
It is really strange how the vehicles spawn. I too have only just found a Norma after like... What 50 hours of game time. My first game on drucker county only had jeeps. My last playthrough on drucker I've yet to see a jeep.Hmm, than perhaps I've simply not found one. It took me four communities before I ran into a Norma after all.
Vehicle spawning is weird. I've had a total of one Norma and that was a mission spawn. The only hatchbacks I've seen are the Rapscallion and Survey, I mostly see vans, pickups, and the various muscle cars. Only time I ever see a cop car is mission spawns, usually action hero since I get that literally every map.Hmm, than perhaps I've simply not found one. It took me four communities before I ran into a Norma after all.
The Daybreak Red Talon characters can have a hero bonus of Compact Ordinance, which adds +1 consumable stack size. Theroetically this brings the limit up to 12 slots, where consumables can stack to 10.If they have the Sewing skill, that adds an extra +2 Max Consumable Stack, and the "Keeps Hidden Pouches" trait adds 10 Light Carry Capacity, 10 Max Carry Capacity, and 1 Max Consumable Stack.
So, it is possible (but extremely unlikely) to have 12 slots, where consumables can stack to 9.
There are some other traits that can increase carrying weight. "Broad Shouldered" add 15 Max Capacity, "Smuggler" adds 10 Light Carry Capacity and 10 Max Carry Capacity, "Does Tons of Squats" adds 10 Max Carry Capacity, "Expert Traveller" adds 10 Light Carry Capacity, "Good Posture" adds 5 Max Carry Capacity, "Organised" adds 5 Light Carry Capacity.
Having other characters with specific hero traits can also help. "Backrubs" gives +5 Max Carrying Capacity, "Pack Maintenance" gives +10 Max Carrying Capacity, and "Pre-Packed Gear" gives +5 Light Carrying Capacity.
