ALPHA v. 0.2.08


This patch adds the 100th event! Glory to the Prince of Pleasure!

Authorship is an odd thing when it comes to sexual content. If I cannot find anything about a scene that appeals, it's invariably awful. Appealing to a wider audience is therefore frequently an exercise in consciously finding something to like. For example, my brain is not wired to find testicles (that aren't mine) sexually relevant, so this patch has been a game of finding ways to approach such content from surgical fetish, domination, and corruption angles, which are things that do appeal.

Since players seem to be actively thinking about this world I'm creating, I'm trying to flesh it out more in events. The Free Cities are so anarchic that the only real law in the arcology is what the PC chooses to enforce. Three new random events allow the player to mete out harsh justice to criminal tenants: always with the option to enslave, of course.

You know you're /k/ when you describe a machine pistol as lovingly as a naked breast.

Pre-0.2.08 saves are not compatible.

0.2.08 Patch Notes:
  • Balls, and various mean things to do to them.
  • New random events.
  • New non-random event.
  • Further balance to reputation: gains and decay have both been reduced further, so it is again harder to get but easier to keep. This has indirectly made reputation from events more important.
  • Minor UI improvements, especially to the surgery.
  • Revisions to descriptions to better explain some stat effects.
  • Bugfixes.

  1. Unrelated to this particular post, but do you have plans to ever add an interaction to the individual-slave page where you order her to fuck another specific slave? It'd be so entertaining to be able to do things like reward my shemale bodyguard by letting her knock up one of my milk-slaves (or maybe her sister... hmm)

    1. That would be fun, wouldn't it? It would require ~10,000 words to be done right, though, so it's a lower priority than a lot of easier improvements.

    2. Heh, well as long as you're at least considering it that's good enough for me!

  3. so I understand that this is primarily a sex game, but to be perfectly honest I'm a lot more interested in the world you've created rather than the sex. that's not to say that the sex is a bad thing, I'm just really interested in being able to interact with the world better. first of all, I don't like how the arcology is part of a city. that makes me think that there is some sort of organization and that there are normal people just living around in there. it doesn't feel post apocalyptic. I would much rather prefer that the acrology is a standalone building out in the wasteland. I should be able to pillage villages and gain slaves for selling, I should be able to make an army and battle for forces of the undead wasteland, raiders, other slave armies.

    being able to do battle would bring in a feature that I've long been waiting for, and that's real doctoring and surgery. nothing gets me harder than a doctoring a broken patient. cybernetic prosthetics and implants too. basically, this isn't sex content at all, it's an expansion to the entire scope of the world. it really reinforces the apocalyptic wasteland idea, the fall of humanity, etc. making improvements to your arcology would make sense, spending money on merchants for items that you can't make yourself would be a concept that the PA would have to learn to use or abuse. reputation would play a big role in the caliber of merchants that show up.
    this addition would basicallt add these things:
    -real surgery, with wounds that must be healed before the slave can perform a specific function
    -combat
    -usable items
    -a money sink that makes sense
    what do you think?

    1. You're conflating two ideas I have for games, only one of which is FC. This isn't the post apocalypse yet. Pretty much everything you suggest is on hold for the next game. This game is intentionally simple and will remain so so I can finish it quickly.

  4. So I got a question about balls/testicles. What exactly do they do in this game? Do shemales come with automatically or do some of them have them removed? What about the one special ones in "Acquire other slaveowners' stock" shop?

    1. The special hardcoded slaves will have no balls until I go back and review them, alas.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, adding in balls broke all the hermaphrodites as far as having a usable penis goes. It would be nice if a hermaphrodite could retain the use of her penis without having to have balls, or at least not external ones if perhaps they could be moved inside her body instead of hanging outside since all herms are sterile anyway.

      Delete
    3. Herms are getting a review in 0.2.09, when the ability to surgically create them gets added.

      Delete
  5. Would it be possible to add growth hormone implants for breasts and penis like the lactation ones. It gets annoying after a while having to constantly turn injections back on when body parts shrink again.

    Another question I had was if there was any influence on herm generation at the start when selecting male frequency.

    1. On the list of things to add. Herms are not randomly generated at the moment, so no effect.

      Delete
  6. Naming mechanics suggestion:

    I like naming my slaves after the random events they come from, but often forget exactly where I got them by the time the game allows me to rename them. I'd like the "rename" functionality to be available regardless of devotion level, with a devotion/resistance modifier based on the slave's current devotion level (positive at obedient and above, negative at fearful and lower) when the slave is renamed.

    The game is already tracking slaves birth names, so you could put in a line into the first paragraph of the slave's description stating that "due to her being [fearful/resistant/rebellious], she still refuses to answer to the name she's been given" or "despite training, she still answers only to her birth name".

    1. I think I'll just make renaming an obedience malus below a certain point.

  7. Will there ever be an option to place a custom order for a slave? What I mean is will there be a way in the future that we could hire some people to find us a slave with the exact specifications we want for a lot of money? Like say I want a 18 year old blonde shemale with balls intact and C cup breasts who is an anal virgin. You could send them out to collect one for you(It could take up to a few weeks) in exchange for maybe 60k in funds?

    1. Awesome. I will assume it will be a much later on feature though. Still looking forward to it.

  8. Should the master be allowed to put pregnant slaves in corsets? Their function is to shrink the waist, but that might be a bit detrimental to the baby's health.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I actually have to kind of agree. Corsets should probably be blocked from use if the slave is pregnant.

      Delete
    2. There is a much crueler way to handle this, and I will implement it.

      Delete
    3. Heh, that's exactly the kind of answer I like to see

  9. Relevant to the adding of balls: I note that the starting slaves are always gelded, if appropriate. Can that be changed? Intact males are more useful for certain roles, and I'd like to have the choice.

    1. The surgery room is giving me a "geld her" option for a fertile bio female obtained from the "desperate mother" event. Possibly related?

      Delete
    2. Just to be clear, the scene that follows references testicular removal, and there is no mention of fertility change afterwards.

      ...and now I'm thinking of whether the option to make breeders sterile is sufficiently cruel to turn other people on.

      Delete
    3. A bunch of slaves were inevitably bugged by the addition of balls, which affect almost everything. 0.2.09 will police up a lot of these.

      Delete
  10. I just got the prize-shooting event, chose to bag the muscular girl, and wound up with a genetic girl with... huge testicles.
    Amusingly, the herm you can get from that event *lacks* balls. Apparently the athlete stole them.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good report, that event wasn't zeroing out balls properly.

      Delete
    2. I'm playing with full shemale content and I didn't find any balls on the muscular girl, though I did see this:

      "Her pussy is concealed by her lovely gown. It's tight and appealing, They are moist with arousal."

      Looks like two sentences got mashed together, and there's a missing half a sentence about her pussy lips after "appealing,"

      Delete
    3. Weird. Replayed through the event from an earlier save, hit the muscular slave again, got one with balls.

      "Her pussy is bare and available. It's tight and appealing, They are moist with arousal. She is skilled at vanilla sex. She has a normal pair of balls. With her ass bare, there is a occasional glimpse of her asshole."

      The sentence about the pussy lips is still there, so I guess it's from a different issue.

      Delete
    4. I chose the older slave she has balls as well by the way

  11. Great nicknames for amputees, all of them are quite good. (Onahole was my favorite, a perfect fit for Asian amputees! Brilliant!)

    Aquiring a slave who is an amputee, such as through the new whore malefactor event with the 'amputate her' choice, "The legalities completed, Madison stands before your desk, looking you in the eyes with defiance." Can't stand without legs. Give her the smart piercing, "You run a quick test. On the oral setting, as soon as she kneels in front of your crotch, she gasps as the stimulation starts." Can't kneel.

    About the Whore malefactor amputation choice, I think the description needs some adjustment to really hit it home. Comparing it to the rapist malefactor gelding choice, it doesn't seem like she's resonding to the situation as much. "The protesting malefactor is stripped and stuffed into your remote surgery on public video feed." doesn't really make it clear that her limbs are being removed and simply having her "protesting" seems less impactful compared to the passages from the rapist malefactor gelding: "She is so utterly broken by this turn of events that you complete the legalities and biometric scanning without fuss. The condemned sobs weakly throughout the process until you grow tired of the whining and apply punishment.".

    I do admit, I love the whole event, and I enjoy how "the horrible experience has left her acting oddly." as such a traumatic procedure would. I love amputation as a punishment choice too, it's usually what I do to the rebellious slaves I get from events, so I was glad to see it as a choice here.

    Event idea: Slave contest that's sort of like a pet show or beauty pageant. Cash prize, rep, and/or devotion if you win. Amputee accessible would be nice so I can show off my lovely works of art and show everyone amputees are superior. Also, It'd be great if you could specify beforehand which slave you want to enter, so you can choose the slaves you put your favorite modifications on. Maybe as a way of specifying slaves you could use a modified version of the menu that the old 'train another slaves' option devoted slaves used to have, or maybe have a prized slave position that can be set like head girl and bodyguard.


    I'll be gone for a week, so I look forward to seeing how things change when I get back! (*hint* more amputee stuff please *hint* ;) )

    1. As you may have noticed, I copy-paste code to produce lots of similar content. The pit fight code the bodyguard uses can easily be turned into other slave competitions.

  12. Hey I was just wondering if Squirting could be introduced as like a sexual skill or something. Or like a teachable skill or so.

  13. A big problem that I've run into is that when slaves have a large clit, the game treats them as though they have a dick but no balls.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The text in 'PT Workaround' should probably say something like 'you focus on [slave]', and then elaborate on what you're doing at the start of each of the individual focus options. Right now they all start with 'you train [slave]' even if you're building devotion or caring for her.

    It's strange that breast fetishists don't have any special text referring to it in their end-of-week report if they're milk cows.

    School traps and male debtors don't have balls.

    As far as I can tell penis enhancers are the only way to expand balls, but you can't use them on a slave with an already maxed dick even if they have small balls.

    In the 'mercenary wants to marry your slave' event, had the mercenary say he'd been seeing my bodyguard - probably because I had no girls whoring or on public use at the time.

    You remember the million and one bug reports about shemale slaves on hormones who were still getting erections in events? You've just set yourself up for experiencing each and everyone one of them by having lack of balls have the same effect. Then again, since they're already all identifiable by having the hormone code in them it should be easy to do a roundup of them.

    Removing the penis of a herm apparently gives them a clit, which shows up in events and can grow if the slave is muscular. Which kinda makes sense since the surgery would probably use the penile tissue to create a clit instead of lopping it off - perhaps alter the surgery text for de-donging a herm to say that that's what's happening?

    1. Training text does need a rewrite. Good call on milkers with a matching fetish and on enhancers. You're exactly right on the dick-to-clit surgery (which is how I believe it's actually done).

      And I know balls were a great way to introduce bugs. I did a more-or-less top to bottom review of scenes to catch those before pushing 0.2.08, and it looks like I was about 95% successful.

      Delete
    2. Penis enhancers aren't the *only* way to increase balls - having girls work out has a chance of doing it too. It just takes forever

  15. Alright, got a few bugs for you:

    - Certain "slave A watches you with slave B, gets interested in B's fetish" events can trigger with a virgin B - and leave them virgin - despite mentioning you penetrating her. I've seen it with submissives and buttsluts so far

    - Obedient, low-anal-skill shemales assigned to please you can still get the line "By the end of the week she gets a hardon when you use her" even when hormones or castration have made erections difficult (or even completely impossible)

    - "As the most devoted slave in your penthouse with the time to take her on, Savannah lays primary claim to Anna's services this week. Since Savannah loves giving milk, Anna finds herself constantly nursing."
    Savannah isn't lactating though - she just has a breast fetish

    - Got a criminal event where I had an option to make the woman an amputee. I chose that option, and the event ended with "The legalities completed, Makayla stands before your desk, looking you in the eyes with defiance." I would think she would have a pretty tough time with that

    - The event where the shemale who was being pimped by her sister is ordered to assfuck said sister doesn't take the sister's anal virginity, even though it says it does

    - On the "Friday Evening" event, choosing the "Go clubbing" or "balcony" options makes mention of her having an erection, even if she's incapable

    - Something fucky with having a shemale work as a trainer now:
    "Her enthusiasm makes her an excellent teacher. Error: cannot find a closing tag for macro <> Though she has a dick, she's impotent due to her hormone treatments and can't use it as a teaching tool. Her gigantic dick is a magnificent teaching tool."
    Slave in question was not in fact on hormones.

    - "X is a real public servant. This morning..." event is another that mentions erections on girls that can't have them

  16. The "reward bodyguard for watching the door" event doesn't take vaginal virginity. Event ends in a mention of virginity being lost, but the slave page doesn't recognize that after the fact. My bodyguard was a herm with balls from the "snatch & grab" event, in case it matters.

    1. Replayed from an earlier save, hit the same event, but this time virginity was removed. I don't know what's going on. I know I put her in chastity to increase her obedience twice through this same event (as in, the first time she'd only lose anal virginity).

      Is it possible the event triggered the second time while she was still wearing chastity? If so, the chastity may be interfering not with the event itself (which is why event page reads as normal), but with the result (which is why the slave page doesn't show vaginal virginity has been taken).

    2. Hm, no idea. Will try to recreate.

  18. Hey, what do you think about being able to add mechanical limbs to a girl after she loses her natural ones (they could even have special uses e.g. animal limbs so the slave has to walk on all fours or hands with fake vaginas installed for better hand-jobs)

  19. Will there be a way to increase/decrease the size of a slaves balls?

  20. When it comes to "family relationships" and the way the game likes to resort the slave list by... i think its devotion level?... Is there going to be a way to either A) sort by whatever classification we want... or.. at least when it comes to siblings/twins/mother-daughter, if they could be kept together in the list?

    And also like someone mentioned i think on the tfgs site... possible to add a nursery to keep the resulting breedings and have other entertaining things with them later on?
