ALPHA v. 0.1.08 (September 20)


Today's patch is relatively minor, just bugfixes, UI massaging, and some minor content.

Download: Mega.

Patch Notes:
  • UI improvements. This is still a long way from where it needs to be.
  • Fixed an oversight that could maroon the player in the Encyclopedia.
  • New scenes, including one new campaign scene.
  • Buffed nymphos again. It's important to investigate your slaves' inclinations.
  • Numerous bugfixes and content improvements.

  1. First week in, have a single devoted slave (Mackenzie, in case it matters). Between the costs summary and a random event ("master please fuck me"), a typical error line flashes briefly on my screen - it's red, has various symbols and language consistent with "content missing here".

    I saw it for a fraction of a second before the actual random event fired, so I can't tell you what exactly it said.

    1. Had another flash between weeks 3 and 4, no random event afterwards this time. I'm guessing there's either some sort of check that's supposed to be hidden but stays on my screen for too long, or the game is attempting to fire off an event for which I don't meed the requirements (yet).

      Nothing critical, but it is distracting.

    2. Yup, it just keeps happening randomly. Not every week, not always with an event afterwards, not always visible for the same amount of time. No guesses what's causing it, sorry.

    3. Whatever is causing this bug is stacking up. After 55 weeks, I'm seeing the same flashing screen, but with 4 identical lines of "something's missing here, boss" error code. Still flashes too fast to note the actual error text.

    4. Managed to catch it with a screenshot:

      ! Error: <>: bad conditional expression in <> clause: missing ; before statement

      Five identical rows of the above line. Hope this helps.

    5. Hmm, blogspot is eating some of the code. Those were supposed to be two "less than/greather than" signs and an "if" in between them.

    6. I got it too: http://i.imgur.com/i0vrnkr.png

      Different circumstances though, showed up about 90 weeks in for me. Actually had a game where I started with Mackenzie and it didn't show up in that one. No idea what could be causing it; looks like it's time for a good ol' missing semi-colon hunt.

  2. Getting a bad expression using the forced glory hole option on someone:
    Keira suffers under the rules, increasing her obedience. The corseting narrows her waist. Further corseting will not narrow her waist further and may damage her health, so she is now naked. Keira's ¤2 glory hole was used by 181 customers (25 a day). The stress of being used has damaged her health. Error: <>: bad conditional expression in <> clause (#1): expected expression, got '&&' Her asshole sees constant use and loosens. With her throat being brutally used, her gag reflex is suppressed and her oral skills improve. Her fear of you has increased into something like a pathology. Her obedience is reduced. Her feelings, skills, and appearance do not matter. She is a hole. You were paid ¤362 for the use of Keira's hole this week.
    Keira's still deeply unhappy at being a slave; her obedience dropped this week.

He does not notice or care. @@color:lime;Her pussy is now broken in.@@ <> <> <> <> <> @@color:lime;Her pussy gets stretched out by the use.@@ <> <> <>" class="error">Error: <<if>>: bad conditional expression in <<elseif>> clause (#1): expected expression, got '&&'

    2. Only non-virgins get that message. I tested it out and virgins get no errors.

  3. I just got a mother-daughter combo where both are named Olivia. It'd be neat if you'd get Olivia Sr. and Olivia Jr. or not allow it instead. It's a bit confusing to work with two Olivia's.

  4. Found a random event where the slave name wasn't filled in. Text below:

    There is an alert from your personal assistant, in her deliciously feminine voice: "$activeSlave.slaveName is masturbating, Master. Ooh, she's breaking the rules, Master!" A video feed appears. She's furiously polishing her pearl. She's chosen to do it in a dark corner and looks like she's hurrying; she clearly knows this is forbidden.

    She does not hear your approach until you're very close. She starts and tries to look normal. "I wasn't doing anything, Master!" she lies.

    1. This bug gave me an unnamed slave that was present even after reloading the weekly autosave (definitely wasn't present in the previous though so maybe the save is bugged). Full list of my slaves below:

      HG Kennedy will serve the public. Devoted. Rules: permissive. Harem girl outfit. Healthy. On curatives.
      Sex master. Hardened whore. Expert entertainer. Nympho!
      PA Adalyn will rest. Fearful. Rules: restrictive. Wearing plugs. Extremely healthy. On curatives.
      Shemale. Girlish figure. Sexually skilled. Skilled entertainer.

    2. Just got this event with a single slave and it showed up fine. I picked the first option and now I have a bugged slave:

      PA Fifi will whore. Obedient. Rules: restrictive. Wearing plugs. Healthy. On preventatives.
      Sexual expert. Normal sexuality.
      HG $slaves[$i].slaveName will $slaves[$i].assignment. Devoted. Rules: $slaves[$i].rules. Naked. Unnaturally healthy. Addict. On .

  5. Will there ever be an option to set girls free? The slave list gets pretty long after a while, and I feel kinda bad just *selling* Devoted slaves who I've had for a long time :P

    Letting them work independently clears up a bit of clutter, but doesn't actually shorten the list

    ReplyDelete

    1. Perhaps independently working slaves could show up on a separate list. Something like;
      "Your Slaves"
      Slave 1
      Slave 2

      "Independent Slaves" <- click to open a new menu with your independent slaves.

      "Buy Slaves"
      Public Market
      etc.

      Or you could just bite the bullet and sell them off when the market is high. If it makes you feel better, you can buy many new slaves for the price you sold the old ones off for ^_^.

      Delete
    2. There will probably be a manumission option eventually. For now, stay tuned; alternatives to just selling are on the way.

  6. Hmm. I think I have a bugged slave. The "experienced whore" trait seems to be reserved for girls, but the "ignorant immigrant" event spawned a shemale with it for me. Usually, shemale training will cut off with a "this is all you can teach this slave", but this time it went deeper and I got a paragraph about teaching the slave social graces.

    I still have the option to train the slave, but each time I do there is no actual text in the weekly update besides "You train X when she isn't otherwise occupied." Looks like the game sees the slave has all the skills the master can teach but the training cutoff event isn't firing.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The "no training cutoff" issue may have something to do with the head girl/personal attention interaction. I've seen the two of them hit the same slave with the same type of training a couple of times. I now have another slave with a broken "teach her" option, as in the option exists but training doesn't do anything (nothing at all shows up in the weekly progress report when the master picks to train her).

      Her last training update featured both the master and the head girl training her in the same exact skill. Maybe what's breaking things is the game ONLY checking for the master maxing out a slave's skill, but not whether the head girl is tipping things over the very top?

      Delete
    2. Next patch will improve checks on training. Let me know if this reoccurs.

  7. Question: Are there plans for things to spend money on other than just more slaves? After your first couple of devoted slaves, it doesn't take much time to get to the point where money pretty much stops being a thing. I read elsewhere that you wanted to limit body modifications and such to things that you thought were possible within the next 15 years or so. Perhaps players with large amounts of money could 'fund research' or something to unlock some of the borderline ones?

    Another idea would be adding an option to build specialty annexes for specific kinds of slaves. For example, a player could build a 'dairy farm' for a few hundred thousand dollars and stick all of their cow slaves there or something. Might help reduce late-game clutter as well.

    Either way, keep it up :D

    1. Short answer: yes. Long answer: yes, and dairy farms are a personal favorite of mine and have been planned from day one.

  8. Minor text bug: In the event where a slave wants to turn into a submissive because they see another submissive, the option to turn this down has the incorrect text. Below were the options:

    Turn her into a submissive too
    Steer her away from cum obsession for the moment

    ReplyDelete
  9. Minor bug: If a girl has a sister, you can get the event to buy a new sister from the orphanage. If you do, this overwrites her existing sister in the description. I'd expect both sisters to show in the description, or to not have the sister event for someone with a sister.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Personal assistant warns you of a masturbating slave:
    "$activeSlave.slaveName is masturbating", created a bug-slave, with three fearful bio-female slaves on restrictive rules. Happened twice under these circumstances.
    Later the event happened without the without $activeSlave.slaveName being involved, but a shemale slave on permissive rules was the target of it. Also happened to a bio-female on permissive rules.
    Maybe the event is firing only on slaves on permissive rules and creating bug-slaves when there's nobody on permissive rules.

    Slaves that are milk-cows that have their milk implants removed remain milk cows and produce exactly 7 liters of milk, regardless of tit size.

    The cumslut event bug lives on; got it with a bisexual slave.

    Shemale slave walking by in latex: "her holes are eyecatching"

    Shemale from the 'bored club trap requests enslavement' event: "Since she lacks a vagina she takes it up the ass instead. Her clit is quite large."

    The 'girl selling her trap sister' event says that the shemale has 'basic implants' but the shemale is unaltered.

    1. Slaves that were on drugs when set to 'work independently' have 'on none' on their main menu profile when they are set to any other task.

      Two sisters, one shemale, choosing 'fuck her with her sister' on the shemale: "with you gently fucking her pussy".

      'Fuck her with her twin' when one is shemale doesn't respect chastity belts.

      The 'no' option on the 'turn her into a submissive' event is "Steer her away from cum obsession for the moment"

      The slave-influenced-by-watching-another-slave-wants-to-change-sexuality random scenes seem to get 'stuck' on certain slaves. I got 20 in a row for 'Backdoor' Brianna and none for my other four slaves.

      It's still possible to repeatedly remove vocal cords, although there is a description on the page telling you that she's already been muted now.

      Fucktoys in chastity belts, on the main menu: "Her nude body is on display"

      Having two family members as fucktoys: "Since you are also keeping twin" "Since you are also keeping sister" Should be 'her twin', 'her sister', and so on.

      Delete
    2. The family scenes when either or both are amputees have the 'Since between them they aren't devoted enough to enthusiastically perform an incestuous threesome' - which is elegant since the scene is vague enough to work with amputees, but it is misleading since it can appear with max-devotion amputees. Just needs a small tweak for amputees instead of a complete rewrite IMO.

      When slaves are selecting their own slutty outfits, bald slaves can have hairpins on the main menu scenes.

      Delete
    3. Update on 'Backdoor' Brianna's sexuality roulette: muting her made it so that someone else kept getting sexuality change events. Is it intended that mute slaves can't get sexuality change events, or is it just a side-effect of this weird bug? Mute slaves have been pretty creative with lewd sign language in the past.

      Delete
    4. 'Fuck her as she asks' in the night-time requests for fucking isn't taking anal virginity from shemales.

      The 'shaped areolae' event says they're star-shaped even if they're heart-shaped.

      Girls whoring in chastity belts are still learning vaginal skills.

      Shemale buttslut with 'hates anal' getting her quirks ironed out: "You train Habiba when she isn't otherwise occupied. By the end of the week, you break her of her bad habits." I think the text is missing because it should be 'hates penetration' for shemales. I got her from the 'girl selling her trap sister' event.

      Delete
    5. I'm beginning to feel as though this is a Monty Python sketch in which the joke is based around you bring me, the comically bad coder, the morning's bugs, each and every morning. "Not very good at this, are you Johnson?" "No sir!"

      Sexuality interest events have been collared.

      Working independently is supposed to zero out drugs and such; she's looking after herself. I should make this clearer.

  11. Would it be possible to include an operation of virginity restoration to remote surgery? It's a common medical practice today.

    For more fun, the game might even differentiate a bit between 'fake' and 'natural' virgins.

  12. Seems there's problems with the cheat menu that are making it hard to test. Sometimes, I think I'm selecting an event for one slave and according to the events around it, it should be the right one, but it comes up as another slave instead. Also, if you skip past the event with Continue and the next week try to select a different event of the same type, it will have it still use that other slave until you finally select an option. Having names of the slave next to the event on the cheat menu to correspond with the slave the event is happening to would help greatly to determine if this is really a glitch and prevent erroneous reports of slaves doing things they aren't supposed to be able to.

    Natural lactation doesn't seem to stop on its own, not even long after the baby is born and she stops being pregnant.

    Amputees can have tattoos on their thighs despite lacking the thighs to tattoo on.

    Amputee, play with her tits, "Her limbless torso makes her a unqiue appliance for mammary intercourse." "Unqiue" should be "unique".

    Even though I chose to have her areolae altered into a star pattern in surgery, it ends up saying they are heart-shaped in the surgery menu. The shaped areolae event correctly says they are stars, so that's fine.

    Shaped areolae event, choose advertisement, "You place Ava naken on a slowly..." "Naken" should be "naked"

    Shaped areolae event, Show her off choice, doesn't take into account if the slave is an amputee.

    Fearful humiliation event doesn't take into account if the slave is an amputee and mute.

    The $slaves[$i].slaveName appears in the slave list if you press Continue on the sidebar while things are loading, such as during the time between a random event and the main menu where the screen is blank. I was able to replicate this several times by getting to a random event and repeatedly clicking Continue, try it yourself and you will see. This could easily happen while trying to rush through weeks, so it might have been the culprit behind events randomly giving you these fake slaves.


    Fuck her with her sister, "... pretends the cock getting shoved into her isn't slick from her sister's fuckhole. 'Error: if: bad conditional expression in if clause: Function expected' This breaks in Yui's virgin ass.", Both of the slaves were virgins, anal virgins, amputees, devoted, and wearing chastity belts. Slave whose menu I selected it from kept her anal virginity while her sister lost hers.

    Fuck her with her sister, from the other sister's menu, "You call both Yui and Yui to your office. ...(there is no mention of the older sister, every time her name should appear, it says Yui instead)... Error: if: bad conditional expression in if clause: Function expected". The description for this slave doesn't actually say who her sister is, unlike other sibling pairs. I don't know if this has anything to do with what caused the glitch, but I had acquired this sister by selecting the sister recruiter event in cheat mode, and she was the sister of one of the Direct Sales slaves.

    Tried it again with another Direct Sales slave and a similar thing happened where the recruited sister did not have her sister listed on her slave description and the Fuck her with her sister option used a random slave name instead of the appropriate sister. I wasn't able to get the sister recruiter event with a normally acquired slave, so I am unable to determine if this is a problem with the event for all slaves or just a problem with Direct Sales slaves.

    In trying to figure this out, I got a normally acquired slave, this time getting the daughter acquired from the mother recruiter event. Fuck her with her mother brought up this error "Error: if: bad conditional expression in if clause: Function expected" again where it should have said you take the daughter's virginity. I guess that this error seems to be a problem with taking virginity with the Fuck her with her (relative) option.

    2. learns nothing more from her petty sufferings under restrictive rules. Since you haven't yet decided to sell or take her tight little anus, you let her confine her efforts to her mouth and pussy. She is duly grateful you let her put off taking it up the butt another week. After a lot of time spent taking it up the ass, her anal skill improves

      She levels up anal skills will somehow maintaining her anal virginity from week to week.

  15. Hitting 'continue' instead of choosing an option on the 'closing strip club' non-random event later gets you the scene you usually get for setting them up as independent workers. Similarly, hitting 'continue' on the weapons/mercenaries events costs you nothing but later gives you the best result from the attack.

  16. Set up an anal virgin to serve the master, got this in the weekly update:

    "She loves being your nympho slut. Since you haven't yet decided to sell or take her tight little anus, you let her confine her efforts to her mouth. She is duly grateful you let her put off taking it up the butt another week. After a lot of time spent taking it up the ass, her anal skill improves."

    Didn't break anal virginity, but there's definitely an internal inconsistency here.
