ALPHA 0.3.09


A couple of comments requested more tattoos and gave me an excuse to add quite a few. Since the old 'degrading language' option was a little dry, two of these are different kinds of specifically described rude words.

What should have been a few hours of work turned into an unpleasant odyssey when Twine ate an entire version. Despite working with Twine 2 and Sugarcube 2 for almost three months now, the setup persists in occasionally losing saved data with no trace whatever. Infuriating. The only project left out of 0.3.09 as a result is a next/previous function on slaves' individual menus.

All the feedback on volumetric breast descriptions has been received; I'll add an option to hide it.

Download: MegaSaves may work but will have some limitations with the new tattoos.
Tip jar: Patreon.

0.3.09 Changelog:
  • New tattoo designs; decorative tattoos have been broken out into tribal patterns and floral designs, and there are two new text tattoo options that apply specific language to each area for a total of three new designs.
  • New tattoos, including shoulder, arm, and leg tattoos, and tramp stamps.
  • One new random event.
  • Various small improvements to pregnancy suggested by sdibolcrif.
  • Nerfed plugs by limiting their impact on skills and making it rarer.
  • Buffed breast injections to bring them back in line with their previous effectiveness.
  • Head Girls can now address quirks in addition to building skills, health and obedience.
  • Now possible to surgically reduce large areolae.
  • Plugs have gotten a long-deserved nerf and will no longer increase skills past the first level.
  • Bugfixes.

  1. First, thank you for the work, as always.

    Second, I have not downloaded yet, but I already don't like giving HG the ability to fix quirks. Some people enjoy giving quirky slaves just the right fetish in order to see them struggle against the base desires. If there is no fine control over who HG cares for and what she focuses on, HG will end up removing quirks from slaves I'd rather keep - like arrogant and bitchy slaves who are also submissive or exhibitionists, respectively.

    1. Something like this may be solved better by having a check box like function for each slave to be exempt from being touched by the Head Girl and/or the Rules Assistant. While the rules I set are the same for 90%+ of the girls I take in, a few I want to be unique keep getting thier rules adjusted and need to be manually set back. Maybe even having a grouping option so rule set 1 applies to group 1 etc so my cows in group 1 have rules diffrent then my whores in group 2.

    2. These are reasonable requests. In the short term, I'll improve the HG focus options.

    3. Gotta agree with this, and just as an aside I'm the guy who asked you to add in the stuff where anorexic girls like being underfed.

      One of my favorite parts of the game is turning the occasional anorexic girl I get from the market into a living work of art and keeping her as some sort of bizarre trophy. So please don't forget the less obvious quirks when you're tweaking the 'head girl nukes quirks' thing, there's a lot of niche appeal that can be addressed simply by giving us the option to let quirks be instead of, y'know, adding a bunch of text. Which I know wears on you.

      You're doing great work man, fills my heart with glee whenever I check this page and see a new update.

    4. DrPill, I also like this kind of setup, but as far as I've noticed there is no special effect in this game for arrogant submissive slaves. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

      Delete
    5. I think for him it's less about there being an effect and more about how it's cute to think about? IDK.

      Delete
    6. It would be great if it would have an in-game effect too! :D

    7. I personally like the new ability to get rid of quirks. Although arrogant maids always makes me laugh.

    8. It'll all depend on how deeply FC Author wants to expand Head Girl functionality. I was actually coming here to post about wishing for more fine-tuned control of which skills she teaches slaves; I tend to try to tailor my slaves' skills instead of just having everyone know everything, and for example the herm from the raid event I often keep as a personal slave, so I'd like her to have sex skills and maybe entertainment ones but she'll never be whoring so doesn't need those skills - but since she's always Worshipful, if my HG knows whoring skills at all she'll refuse to train anyone lower on the list until the herm is trained (or I send her to a facility, I guess).

      UI/mechanics to flag what skills each slave should or shouldn't be taught is probably a lot of work - simply being able to point the HG at a particular slave to train (a la the Personal Attention option) is probably a simpler way to get something like this working.

    9. @Grateful_Player: Look at the first paragraph of the slave's page more closely.

      "Despite being well broken, she seems to retain hints of ARROGANCE (red). Her arrogance is really just a thin shell to protect her true need to SUBMIT (pink)."

      Bitchy slaves similarly get off on exhibitionism/humiliation, while several other fetishes generate a special sentence in the weekly update. For example, a "hates anal" slave who becomes a "buttslut" one week will be mentioned as losing her inhibitions by caving in to the fetish the week after.

  2. Is there a way to apply the rules assistant to one slave at a time?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Only when you acquire the individual slave, as I understand it. The assistant is supposed to provide blanket rules for ALL slaves that fit its criteria otherwise.

      Delete
  3. I don't know if it has been mentioned before, but will we be able to sell mother/daughter, twins, and siblings as a combo instead of only individually?

  4. Freakin' sweet update. I'm loving the new tats, definitely a big improvement.

    I haven't played a lot yet, but I think I've discovered a bug with the butt injections... I had a slave go from "small, rounded" to "so big it jiggles" with only one week of successful injections, though this did not confer the "Big Ass" descriptor as it used too.

    Butt implants seem to obey the normal progression, though I did notice that the "fillable implants" option seems to be available in earlier stages now? Or maybe it's because I've never tried to do implants at such an early stage before? I'll test this more when I have more time.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Confirmed that the ass injection issue is repeatable. It seems like 'bubble butt' has been displaced and can only be obtained if a slave comes with it, or via implants, otherwise it appears to be replaced by "so big it jiggles". Also found a typo...

      "Her arms are attooed with floral designs."

      tattooed* Only exists on the body mod screen after applying arm tats.

      Delete
  5. It seems that if you bleach a slave's anus, it forever removes the ability to give her the full body cow tattoos since bleaching can't be removed yet it counts as a tattoo.

  6. I couldn't ever find an exact answer, but are worshipful slaves put into the brothel, dairy, promenade, or the servants quarters supposed to lose devotion with time? Right now they are.

    I also would like to request a head maid for the servants quarters much like the top position on the other areas.

    Another request I'd like to see would be if you get enough, like 10+, worshipful slaves that there's a chance you catch them starting a cult about you and indoctrinating new slaves into it?

    1. In the previous update it sounded like all slaves EXCEPT worshipful, would lose their status down to simply obedient.

      I hope that what you report is just a bug because getting slaves to worshipful is one of my favorite things about this game.

      I somewhat dislike the fact that the difficulty for worshipful salves was increased...I kinda hope this doesn't turn into an extremely difficult, constant-grinding, stat-watching, 'one mistake and you're fucked' sort of game...I love the fact that it's sorta a slave 'sandbox'.

      However, my dislike of one choice in no way reduces my enjoyment of the game or my praise for it's author!

    2. "FC AuthorOctober 25, 2015 at 9:02 PM

      Perhaps I wasn't clear in the changelog. All the facilities - Brothel, Promenade, Dairy and Servants' Quarters - will now pull non-Worshipful slaves towards an Obedient resting point. In other words, Fearful slaves in the Brothel will slowly gain devotion, while Devoted slaves in the brothel will slowly lose devotion."

      From the comments of the previous update. I haven't played this version, so if what you say is true and Worshipfuls are losing devotion then its a bug.

      And this game is no where near "extremely difficult", "stat-watching" or "one mistake and you're fucked". Rules assistant can handle so much tedium and its way a breeze to get to anything. Worshipful isn't required, and there's even an Easy mode anyway.

      Delete
    3. My apologies in case I sounded as though I was implying that it was already too difficult. It's not, and I am having great fun with the game, all around. I was expressing my thought that getting a slave to worshipful was one of my favorite things to do, and I hope the difficulty won't be increased unreasonably.

      I was also expressing that, in my own opinion, 'slave maker' style games tend to fall into having to 'grind' and 'stat-watch' in order to get anywhere, which seems to me, to remove the freedom of action that we have here.

  7. Is there any planed feature where instead of, children born from slaves going to orphanage, are raised in a facility and when they grow up, they can be used as slave. ( Looking forward for incest fetish).

    ReplyDelete

    1. Fleshed out incest fetishes would be amazing. I already love the options we have for fucking slaves together.

      Speaking of which, how do we know that the player character didn't have a mother/sister/cousin/aunt? All of those could be put in as special events...

      Delete
    2. It's been said multiple times nope he has no plans to be doing that. To reach 18 is nearly 1000 turns. The system isn't made for 50 salves let alone how many you'd accumulate in that time.

      Although I'd be totally fine with an orphanage that's just about raising your young children. No sexiness at all. Well I guess you could fuck their care taker slaves, but nothing about playing the jailbait wait game.

      Delete
    3. No need to make it realistic - why not let your girl grow 18 after 10 weeks? It's a fiction game after all.

      Delete
    4. Because that's not what he wants to do with his game. He wants to keep it within the realm of something that is possible within the next ten years or so.

  8. We need a way to focus on clit growth, I've been trying to grow them but can seem to figure out how...

  9. I'm not sure if there already is, but is there a way to surgically modify the tightness of dem slaves' holes?

    Replies
    1. I feel like this would be an AWESOME addition. Something that I will hole-heartedly vote for! I personally would prefer the ability to make my personal slaves hot and permanently tight!

      Also, could add in a 're-virginity' surgery (High-cost, high damage perhaps?) that reconstructs a female slave's hymen.

      Also, a circumcision stat and surgery/body mod for shemale/hermaphrodite slaves?

    2. I did grow one slaves clit by accident, and there is and RE involving Huge Cilt on Slave in the debug but i only got it once..

      Delete
    3. Building muscles causes the clit to grow. Not sure why really. Does that happen in real life?

      Delete
    4. Steroids. Look up Chyna the wrestling star's Playboy photos.

    5. Wish there was a way to get a girl to automatically build muscle, if you can't have a girl grow a penis, I I'd least like her to grow her clit out more. Not a big fan of making guys a herm. Not to mention you can't get them pregnant.

      Delete
    6. You already can though... literally just set them to "build muscle," their clit will slowly grow. Takes a while though

  10. Has anyone figured out all the stats that give bonus the the milkmaid, madam, and the concierge? The only one I've discovered so far is that youth gives a bonus to the milkmaid. I'm assuming that age gives a bonus for the madam, but haven't had a slave that I can test that out with yet.

    I sorta forgot about those bonus things.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Madam needs whoring skill, to be older I think the same age range as the head girl, and something else I'm not sure of yet.

      Milkmaid is health, youth late twenties was too old but I know that 18/19 worked, and muscles.

      Concierge needs entertainment skill, beauty, and something else I'm still looking.

      Delete
    2. The Concierge needs entertainment skill, beauty, and to be older for all the bonuses.

      Still haven't found the last thing for the Madam. I know it's not height, muscles, tattoos, piercings, clipping her tendon, making her waist super small, huge T&A, girlish figure, beauty, being a nympho, big lips, or a brand.

      Delete
    3. Madam is whoring skill, age, and a large dick, iirc.

      Delete
  11. I wonder how important being muscular is for milkmaids (and bodyguards too, while we're at it). I've got nothing against muscular women, but the in-game description makes it sound like it's not so much 'ripped and lean' as 'Mister Universe but female' and that much muscle is unsexy IMO.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I just pretend it's moderate muscles being looking like mister universe takes roids and they are just pumping iron. So they more likely have less crazy muscles. Especially since giant muscles get in the way of basics tasks and are bad for endurance which one would need in a dairy, or for fighting.

  12. Would be nice with a option to grow a dick with or without balls on females. Previously male just doesn't sit right with me.
    If not, that's fine, your call.

    1. This is another of the things that has repeatedly been said is not going to happen, because the state of surgery right now (and in the near future, when FC is set) can construct vaginas from penises but building a functional penis from scratch isn't possible.

  13. Quick question about pre-made slaves: would twins be an option? The price would naturally have to be higher, but is it something that, were someone to submit it to the post relating to this matter, you would be willing to add? As an alternative, if you could give the actual character template for a slave as it looks when you edit the game, I might be able to add it into my own download of the game on my own.

    1. I asked about this in the 3.07.1 thread, but didn't get a response, but I'd also like to add hair color and eye color to the pre-made slave thing. Along with sisters and mother daughter.

      Delete
    2. Hair color and eye color are already included in the pre-made slave entries. If they're not working properly then you'll need to explain the problem in greater detail, because it seems fine to me.

      ----

      Any kind of pairings (twins, mother-daughter, etc) would be tricky because the code is written to select at random from the array. Even if you include a special flag in the slave declaration block (e.g. pairName: "Kiki"), the game might have a hard time *finding* the second girl because it doesn't know the array index at which it found the first girl. It would perhaps need to traverse the whole array, which is cumbersome and error-prone (due to action-at-distance on the iterator variables).

      The least-risky option would probably be to setup a new array of "paired slaves", each entry of which would define two girls. You would then be able to setup dissimilar pairs (instead of getting a customized girl, plus her younger clone).

      The simplest option would be to define the girls separately (with the aforementioned flag) and allow them to be purchased separately. Then add a special code block which will be run post-purchase. It would check whether the partner is present, and would link the two girls together if so. So the first girl would behave as a normal solo slave, but after purchasing the second they would become eligible for the special Random Events and sex scenes.

  14. Heh, I just thought of something.

    Would entire nipple removal surgery be added? For that nippleless fetish.
