ALPHA 0.4.4


There have been sporadic requests for national backgrounds, and this update adds them. The slave market in FC is international, so you'll only see an increase in the likelihood of slaves on the market from the continent you choose, rather than exclusivity. Slave names are now based on nationality, and there are now around 1,500 possible names. Naturally, I've only been able to add the larger countries so far, so I mean no offense if yours isn't represented. Yes, I know that "Middle Eastern" isn't really a race; no, I'm not going to program a highly accurate ethnicity simulator. The ethnic and nationality code is highly imperfect, so getting worked up about it at this point isn't going to help much. On that note, I will be curating the comments here with an iron hand. I will not delete comments I merely disagree with; I will delete comments that veer off topic. This blog is about the game: if you want to discuss race in the game, great; if you want to discuss race, go to /pol/.

If you want to see a specific country in the game, here's how you can speed that process up. Comment with the country you'd like added, and the 20-50 top female names for that country, formatted like so: "Annisa", "Sarah", "Maria". If said country's population is split between major supernational ethnic groups (caucasian/black, for example, rather than Pashtun/Tajik), give me the breakdown.

This update also adds slave prestige. This is intended as a rare, very special thing; think enslaved celebrity level prestige. A prestigious slave is extremely expensive, will attract more attention in jobs that let her do so, and even gives the player character a steady reputation boost simply by being his slave. Credit is due to Anon in the On being evil post for this excellent idea. There is a Credits screen in the encyclopedia. If the Anon whose idea that was wants credit there under a handle, let me know. The same goes for any regular contributors whose earlier ideas made it into the game; let me know in the comments or via email.

Regarding feedback, thanks to everyone who takes the time to leave comments, suggestions, and bug reports. I'd like to make two observations. First, you may re-encounter  bugs you've already reported. I read and try to address all bug reports, but my fixes don't always work, and bugs can often conceal other bugs that don't become visible until the first bug is fixed. Second, please do not submit bug reports when you're playing an old version. Many bugs reported on 0.4.3 were due to old saves. I'm not joking when I note that previous saves won't work. It takes time to track down bugs, and finding that it happened because a 0.4.2 save was opened in 0.4.3 doesn't help me improve the game.

If you've got a unique slave you'd like to see in game, don't forget to submit her here using the easy to use in game upload system.

Download: DropboxMegaPrevious saves will not work. If you have not started a new game with a fresh 0.4.4 download, please do not report bugs. Latest hotfix at 19:00 PST.

  • Nationality-based nicknames, at least one for each nationality.
  • Arab racial group renamed to Middle Eastern, for simplicity of coding.
  • Slave prestige, which enormously increases price, slightly improves effectiveness in public jobs, and gives a constant reputation boost.
  • Two new random events that give the chance to add basic prestige to a veteran slave.
  • New slave dealer that offers one prestigious slave for auction each week.

  3. In the two new prestige events for veteran slaves the word guarantee is misspelled guaruntee

    the custom slave Riya's race should probably be changed from Indian to the new Indo-Aryan race

    It might be a good idea to add the addition breakup of indo-aryan and asian to the changelog

    If sufficient names can be found for national or large sub-national groups whose races/super-national ethnicities are not already in-game e.g. Amerindian (Native Americans, First Nations, fully Indigenous Central and South Americans, maybe Inuits) and Pacific Islanders (Tahitian, Tongan, Samoan, Maori, Fijian, Native Hawaiian, other Polynesian, Micronesian and some Melanesian groups, maybe Aborigine Australian and Papuan) could they potentially be added?

  7. Would it be possible to add a slave import system? I suspect balancing it would be a bitch, but I suppose one way is to have the player pay the cost of importing the slave.

    1. Also, has the post-surgery transition been changed? I'm not sure if booting the player back to the main game screen instead of the slave's screen after using the body mod studio is intended.
      Can we also have an option to have the rules assistant give smart piercings and default settings to slaves as well as moving the 'include/exclude' controls to the main screen?

      Great game as always, and I look forward to more!

      Delete
    2. I'd second an import system, recreating slaves is a bitch and some people may not want to give you more work by giving hardcoded requests. Especially now that old hardcodeds don't have the new nationality system.

      Delete
    3. That... is a hell of a request, given my coding inexperience and the beta status of Twine 2. I'll think about it; I think the easier alternative might be to vastly improve the custom slave order system.

      Delete
    4. If someone opens the game file in Twine 2 and goes to the Hardcoded Slaves entry, would it be possible for a slave to be manually placed into a properly formatted "slot," so to speak? I took a look at the entry myself, and I think that doing so until it is potentially incorporated in some way in later releases should be relatively easy, so long as the slave upload function is used and copied exactly, plus any necessary changes for version differences (which I don't know how to address yet).

      Delete
    5. The reasons I'm using the current upload system rather than allowing that are twofold. First, it allows me to proofread all the stats to catch absurdities, out-of-scenario stuff, gamebreakers, and stupid copyright shit. Second, it automatically zeroes out a lot of stuff that needs to be zeroed.

  8. First of all, great work, as always.

    Second, the "merc in love" is no longer asking to buy nonexistant slaves. That said, the "accept" choice is now throwing out an error - "child tag was used outside its parent macro ".

    1. That should be "child tag {{/for}} was used outside its parent macro {{for}}". Forgot the comments section recognizes Twine code as its own and eats it.

    2. DISPLAY ISSUE: after grabbing the sibling pair from the "pimp sister attempts to sell trap brother" event, I hit the "did you enjoy getting buttfucked" follow-up event. At the end of the second choice (revenge but remind her of her place) the devotion increase and rebelliousness change are both the same color (devotion's pink).

      The first choice colors devotion and rebelliousness properly. Testing both shows that the devotion and rebelliousness are being properly applied to alter the devotion scores, so this is only an issue of text color.

      Delete
    3. BUG: the "see too much of each other at WORK and start to dislike each other" relationship text in the weekly update is triggering for slaves who are set to REST.

      Also, a QUESTION: are Anorexic girls supposed to GAIN or LOSE devotion due to being underfed when their current devotion is low (rebellious, ~15)? I know devoted ones enjoy being underfed, but I just noticed a resistant anorexic who did not like it and lost devotion from it (according to the weekly update text and its color).

    4. INCONSISTENCY in slave penis sizes on the slave's page:

      "X's lace g-string cannot cover her huge cock...She has an average-sized penis."

      Looks like another spot wasn't told that "two increases above the minimum" now means "average" instead of "huge".

      Delete
    5. Anorexic slaves will only enjoy dieting at Fearful or above, since below that they're just blaming you for the unpleasant aspects of their condition. Screwed up mental state, that.

    6. INCONSISTENCY: "ignorant immigrant" event slaves are still triggering "buy my 18yo sister out of the orphanage" events, despite the lore contradictions.

    7. INCONSISTENCY: just had a "thousandths fuck" event trigger for the same slave twice - once at 1000 and again at 1040. These were a few weeks apart.

      As I understand it, the code checks if the total counter is "close enough" to a millenial before triggering the event. Maybe triggering the event should create some sort of hidden "millenial count" so that these events don't repeat until the next millenial is hit?

  10. Just started a game, I was provided with this:

    > 'Fucknugget' Pillow will rest. Worshipful. Living standard: luxurious. Speech rules: permissive. Relationship rules: permissive. Masturbation rules: sapphic. Latex. Cowbell collar. Extremely healthy. Overweight. Addict. On aphrodisiacs. 29 weeks pregnant.
    > Loose pussy. Late thirties. Gorgeous face. Huge lips. Amputee. Mute. Huge T&A. Heavy lactation. Heavy ink & piercings. Sex master. Experienced whore. Breast fetish.

    Now, that's a bit hardcore for a game start. But then I took a peek at the description to find this generic thing: "Fucknugget' Pillow comes worshipfully before your desk from where she was resting". Apparently quadruple amputee somehow comes to you. Also, being completely silent she is still allowed to ask questions and form relationships. If that is possible and intended in the game, could you describe a bit more how?

    Since she is lactating, we get this descriptor: "The lactaction drugs are so powerful that if she hasn't been milked in the past hour or so, she leaves a mess wherever she goes." Which doesn't go well with the fact she doesn't have legs. It would be more accurate to say "wherever she is carried" or something like that.

    Anyway, my first reaction was to see what price I could get from her. And that gave me ¤139300. And all that without even taking a turn, isn't that nice? :)

    Well, I'm starting the game again because this is just silly.

    1. Welcome to: (circle all which apply)

      a) uploaded custom slaves (reviewing/hardcoding these is a pain)
      b) unbalanced slave prices (balance isn't getting priority for a while)
      c) amputees not interacting with most game systems properly

      The only thing that I would say is "bug" tier in your case is that, a few versions ago, someone complained about starting with amputee slaves. I don't remember whether amputee starters were made "impossible" or just "very unlikely", though.

      Delete
    2. I agree with the problems noted as I too have occasionally gotten mistress izzy and other rather extreme slaves who also often have excessive sale prices as well. It can make the early game a breeze if you sell them and honestly most of these more extreme slaves are not to my taste and i don't feel like keeping them.

      Could I suggest that the player merely gets 1-3 (depending on difficulty) of the randomly generated slaves from the pre-owned auction instead? These slaves fit well with the in-game description of your takeover of the arcology, that of being remnants of your predecessor's harem, (trained and obedient) and are of middling value averaging usually between 10-20k. With the low end being around five and above 30 on the high end. Also they are relatively nondescript and seem the type that would be left behind if the prior owner was in a rush to leave. The more custom tailored slaves such as mistress izzy or fucknugget seem to me to be the ones that the prior master would be sure to grab first before leaving.

      These slaves also tend to be at the fearful/obedient level which is about what you'd expect for a slave that has been abandoned by her previous owner and placed into the clutches of an unknown entity. It's a little weird to have worshipful slaves that can't bear to be parted from you, (in the sell menu) when they have been with you just a week.

      I think this problem is only likely to exacerbate as more people submit custom slaves that have been heavily customized to the uploader.

      Anyway just some suggestions, great game as always and thanks for the quick updates.

  11. The game's getting better and better with every single version. Cultural names add a great deal of attraction, I think. The chance of learning a little bit of folklore every time I play my favorite fetish game feels brilliant. To speak of fetishes, any chance to get more weight gain related material in game? I am quite happy with the existing content. The way a slaver can deal with slaves weight feels logical and everything works okay, even the nick-names. Just curious and greedy for possibly 'wider' variety on some later point of time.

  22. I also got 'Fucknugget' Pillow, as stated by bicobus above, as a start slave on the "poor" start, not sure, if that's pure coincidence, or if she really has a higher chance to be selected.

    But, what I want to write about, is not about getting her first, but still related to her. Since she has huge breasts, is lactating heavily and has a leather collar with a cow bell on it, it litterally cries for her being a milk slave (I had to take out her implants to increase her production value though :3).

    The following statement, when she is milked, gave me an idea: "Producing this river of milk enlarges her nipples."

    What if you were able to sugically alter her nipples, so they can be fucked?
    That would basically mean, she would have two more holes for activities, like whoring, glory hole, etc..
    This would also change a titfuck to a nipple fuck, as an action (maybe 50/50) and if she's lactating, it would turn into quite the milky experience.
    The tightness of her nipples, would depend on how large they are (also changing her nipple size, could be a surgical option).

    About "true" hermaphrodites (don't google for images, just don't...):
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/True_hermaphroditism
    To state wikipedia: "Although fertility is possible in true hermaphrodites (...), there has yet to be a documented case where both gonadal tissues function".

  24. Few ideas:
    -Instead of douching, etc., after using one of the slaves listed after the buying options, maybe have an additional position/another fucktoy eat the ejaculate out of the used slave/lick it off, etc. The cleaning slave would have changes to devotion based upon current devotion and fetishes.
    -New facility/upgrade: Swimming pool. It would let slaves relax when not working, and could have cameras/see-through walls for the public to watch. If it has been installed, there could be a new rule to allow/restrict slaves from using it. For slaves in their forties that suffer from age-related health drops and have the rule set to allow use of the pool, the reduced stress on her body could reduce the impact her age has on her health. Likewise, pregnant slaves could receive a similar note in the end of week summary, with a devotion increase for letting her relax in such a pleasant way. If written to be outside with sunlight, a sub rule for allowing or disallowing the use of sunscreen; allowing sunscreen could have slaves (and the player during "walk by" and any associated random events) applying sunscreen to each others' bodies, with devotion, fetishes, and quirks factored into the details (+ from bisexual, Obedient or better, submissive, etc.; - from Hates Women, Resistant or worse, etc.). Subordinate servants could be applying the sunscreen if no appropriate slave is otherwise available. No sunscreen allowed could either have no effect or a random event for sunburn and tanning skin. Sunburn random event would have options for either applying treatment or effective abuse, with devotion changes associated with each.
    -Ability to kiss slaves from slave detail page, with choice to kiss only the lips or kiss all over the body; optionally, may have a slave kiss player body. Option to receive a tongue bath (licking the ENTIRE body of your partner. Not necessarily limited to just the area in between one's legs...(Boobs, ass, back...as in bathing)) from one or multiple slaves, or give tongue bath to a single slave with only the player, only other slaves, or the player and other slaves. Devotion changes according to existing devotion.
    -New outfit, variation of bodysuit, but with changes to look more like images in this album: https://imgur.com/a/gvk7R ; would look a lot like the one seen in the last image, minus necklace and sword.
    -Allow slaves to drink alcohol somewhere down the line.

    2. Added Vitaliya - though the chance of any given slave having that name is around 0.1%. Your other suggestions are good as usual. Many preexisting facilities are slated for upgrades or sidegrades, and the pool is a good one for that. I knew choosing nationality would be requested, but it's actually a huge pain to code in Twine AFAIK. I'll add it once I'm done adding countries if I can't come up with a better way.

    3. >> Allow slaves to drink alcohol somewhere down the line.
      What would this entail? Do you want them to actually get drunk and behave differently? Or do you just want scenes in which the girls are relax off-hours and drink a few cocktails?


      >> I really want to see the option to “marry” a slave.
      What would this entail? If you're looking for a single scene (e.g. 1-2 paragraphs) with a devotion boost then it's probably doable - moreso if you write the text yourself and submit it.

      If you want the newly-married girl to become ineligible for normal jobs then that's probably doable. If you want her to occupy a new leadership position (something vaguely analogous to Head Girl) then that's slightly more difficult -- you'd need to describe the new position and explain why you think it's a worthwhile idea.

      If you want the player character to respect the marriage (e.g. stop having casual sex with other women) then it would probably require way too much coding.

      You're also going to have to explain how the relationship fits into the game's backstory. There are a few scenes in which the player character can fall into disrepute by treating slaves too nicely. *Marrying* a slave would presumably require you to free her first (c.f. Mercenary Romeo) or risk a huge scandal. And we haven't even addressed the question of what happens if the girl refuses (e.g. "Thanks for the freedom, but you're not really my type. I'm moving to Amsterdam!")

    4. In regards to alcohol, it could go either way; I just like the idea for some reason.
      As for marriage, I only think of the things you said up to, but not including, the "respecting the marriage" part, since it would clash too much with the game's lore and concept(s). Ideally, the marriage option would be a "I will free you, but I want you to marry me," with Worshipful slaves as a guarantee for most circumstances (in regards to fetishes, mental states, etc.), and chances decreasing for each step down, unless particular circumstances (as stated previously) were present, in which case the chance reduction would be slightly less than otherwise. Marriage would by no means have to be monogamous; polygamy with an upper cap on how many can be married (to prevent craziness) makes more sense than strict monogamy given the lore of the game; polygamy would not, however, be mandatory. There would have to be an initial loss of reputation, with severity of the reputation loss dependent on at least the prestige of the slave, and optionally, upon the age and/or skills of the slave. The slave's previous positions could affect it as well; a slave that has been a public servant or a whore, for example, would have a greater backlash associated with marrying her.

    2. It is possible on iOS, but it is painfully tedious to operate, since it treats the screen as though it were a computer screen zoomed in; you have to scroll all over and swipe a LOT, and the loading times are really bad. Granted, I did this with an iPhone and with an app I paid $2 for (I bought the app a few months ago), so it may go differently. While it is possible, it is simply too complicated and the performance too poor to be anywhere near as satisfying.

    3. Possible at Android too, but you really need something with 6+ inches of screen :)

  26. an event at the bottom of the main menu states the following:

    "Ella walks past your desk on her way to oversee to your other slaves; as she passes she gives you a look of adoration. Her mother Emily was scrubbing the penthouse floor, until another slave requested oral service."

    Ella is Emily's mother so the "Her mother Emily was scrubbing..." part is wrong; it should be daughter, not mother.

  29. Splendid update, as always.

    I haven't got the chance to properly check out this release, so I'll just ask whether Polish nationality is in. If not, I would gladly contribute. Just a question or two regarding the names - I would plan to go the list by hand and choose the best sounding as well as the best representative names (finally, my first hand knowledge of being Polish comes in hand!), but what's your take on "native" naming? For example there's a popular Polish name "Agnieszka" which is simply Agness. I imagine anglicizing all native names is basically pointless (why make ethnic specific names in the first place), but I would imagine some names might look weird and out of place, not to mention a tongue breaker. Personally, I would choose the middle ground, but I wonder that's your preference.

    More importantly though I have a suggestion regarding the slave market, specifically custom orders. With each updates there are more and more slave variables (such as ethnicity in this one) and even before I found the custom order somewhat lackluster (and found myself re-rolling often). Since we're basically shitting money and a nigh demi-god in our domain, I would think that enhancing the custom order - or even better, making a new, even more expensive "seeker service" that allows increased customization, seems reasonable.
    It always pained me to pay egregious amount of money for, what seems to be, a very personalized slave-acquiring service and not being able to even choose the skin, race etc. I know you can change many of those in the surgery but that's... that's just wrong. And personally I prefer the natural approach.

    SUGGESTION: Enhanced Custom Slave Order/Additional Custom Slave Order options, such as ethnicity, beauty, virginity, traits (positive and negative?). The more specific the order, the more money it should cost.

    Finally, I always wondered about the aphrodisiac/beauty effect. When does it proc exactly? Lately I've seen the beauty increase ONLY when an addict was coming OFF the aphrodisiacs (speaking of, there was a bug where the "addict" stayed forever with the upgraded pharmaceutical fabricator. No negative effects, but they stayed as addicts forever. I'm not sure if it's still there as I wasn't fast enough to report it. To clarify, that was in 0.4.3). Lastly, is there a natural "height of feminine beauty" to be found "in the wild" so to speak?

    Thanks for all your hard work.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That aphrodisiac stuff sounds odd, I'll look into it. The custom order needs work, yes. XX and XY slaves can occasionally be found at the 2nd best of 5 beauty ranks "in the wild," with younger age and XX both giving better chances of good looks. On Polish names, feel free to apply your judgment, but don't Anglicize too much - to the average English speaker Agnes does not sound Polish at all, and Agnieszka is certainly recognizable!

    2. Poland

      95%-98% is ethnically white (Poles, ~2% is German and Eastern European), the rest is of mixed race, Asian (primarily Vietnamese) and other descent.

      "Ada", "Agnieszka", "Alicja", "Ania", "Asia", "Bianka", "Dominika", "Emilia", "Gabriela", "Gosia", "Hanna", "Helena", "Joanna", "Julia", "Karolina", "Kasia", "Klaudia", "Kornelia", "Lena", "Lena", "Magda", "Maja", "Maria", "Marta", "Monika", "Monika", "Nadzieja", "Natalia", "Ola", "Paulina", "Sara", "Sylwia", "Weronika", "Wiktoria", "Wiola", "Zuzanna"

      Slavrunes DLC

      "Małgorzata", "Róża"

      Boring background info:
      It’s a mix of popular, distinctive and a few traditional (but feminine) names. Sometimes I opted for the diminutive form (it sounds better; the other is too long etc.). I skipped the traditional ones that are very close to their masculine form or excessive tonguebreakers. I felt it’s the best of two world for both preserving the distinct ethnic flavor and not going into cringe territory for native speakers.

  31. Bug report: amputated slave from the aggressive whore event ('odd' quirk), got her a shock collar. Apparently the shock collar made her odd-again.
    After fixing the quirk through PA, it was erased from her description, but I could still do the quirk-fix PA. The weekly report had no description at all, just the final line, which said it got rid of something (w/ a 2nd obedience boost).

    1. Totally with you on the fertile hermaphrodite angle - it's quite a bit closer to reality than a few of the other things already in the game.

      From the flip side, I can't see it being that problematic to code, since pregnancy is already an accounted for thing.

  38. The "slightly more special" events are a great addition to the game, but the mechanism through which they are currently queued isn't perfect.

    I triggered the "have your bodyguard fight" event and decided to test things a bit by removing the bodyguard and setting her to do a different job. I thought the event would get cleared off the "pending" list because there was no BG, but I was wrong. Five weeks later, as soon as I assigned a slave to BG (not the initial BG, ANY slave) the gladiatorial fight fired off, with predictably regrettable consequences.

    Whether this is "working as intended" or not, I thought you'd like to know how the code you've implemented is working.

    I just wanted to comment and let you know that the "choose the race" option is no longer appearing when you custom order a slave. I'm assuming that is a bug. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

  42. "The slave market in FC is international"

    SUGGESTION: make this optional, with a setting that can limit slaves to local race/nationality combinations only.

    From the lore standpoint, if the world is supposed to be collapsing, eventually international (and definitely intercontinental) traffic is going to cease. Perhaps the accessibility of the slave race/nationality combinations can be tied to the world's economic state, for a more "realistic" feel closer to the collapse itself?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Seconding this. Even better, if one wants to spends a few minutes customizing the game, maybe make an option at the beginning to turn on/off specific nationalities?

      And another suggestion: Since Arcologies are basically city-states, maybe consider an "Arcology" nationality (especially for the youngest slaves, not so much for 35+). I would think that since they are basically run by private entities, at some point (when one is born, lives and dies) people don't care much about "Old-world" national identities especially without state-schools and national pride/ideology.

      Delete
    2. I think I may have slightly overstated the degree of collapse in 2037. Most countries are still at least somewhat functional; think 1932, not Fallout. International trade is very much still happening, especially for high value merchandise. Also, the Free Cities themselves retain much high tech economic power and could probably maintain trade on their own, a bit like colonial power used to!

      Delete
    3. Lore point understood.

      The suggestion still stands, though. I'm sure there are masters and mistresses out there who wish to support their locally grown "organic" slaves over the international outfits flooding the market with their "processed" offerings.

  45. BUG

    I have a slave with no visible quirks - however, I notice when I select her for personal attention, she has the option to "Iron Out". So I go ahead and do it, and get:

    You train 'Size Queen' Angie when she isn't otherwise occupied. By the end of the week, you break her of her bad habits. Her obedience has increased. Therefore, her training assignment has defaulted to building her devotion.

    So, apparently, the game thought there was a quirk, but did not show it, and I have no idea what it thought it was.

    Aaaaanyway, just seemed kinda buggy to me.

    ReplyDelete
  46. It's nice to see so much of proposed content. However, one may not like all of proposed nationalities, names or prebuild slaves. I have one little proposal of import/export system. Here how it may work:
    Player can download simple text-like files (JSON format, as its (de)serialization already supported by Sugarcube). This files contains some content: nationalities, names, slaves, whatever. At game start (in fact, it is possible to do anytime) player opens in-game dialog and copies to text inpput field content of mentioned above files. Then he saves game, immediately loads it and voila: imported content can be used by game code.

    I can develop such system within a week in form of javascript plugin for Twine 2. Is someone interested in? In fact, it will be enough if just FC Author will be interested in such system, but it's truly ok, if I'm only one who interested.

    P.S. Very good game indeed.

  48. to the maker, if you could please put this in, i understand it would without a doubt be a massive pain in the ass. but i feel it could add a OK reward. Freeing slaves that you own. I get attached to slaves now and then and would like to let them go after awhile. Persay if they worshipped you or liked you a ton they would stick around as a free being and maybe bring you info, or the chance to marry them or something like that. Note i enjoy having a chance to be evil too. VERY evil. Also cause your doing new parts of the world having wars to capture OTHER free cities would be epic. Or make some to expand your power and control. Note i love this game so so so much. Keep up the epic work. Also maybe for the Gay/bi/ people you could let females wear dildos and MAKE them fuck you. Or something, Also maybe add something for people who enjoy controlling a lot of stuff, like who moves in and what business's come. Also maybe how the building looks or how the landscape does? I feel there is a shit ton of epic things you could do and you might have to move onto a overlayish thing. Go buy some stuff, watch your slaves while they sleep (not with a cam) also have a chance if there are to many slaves that hate you. They would turn on you and try to kill you/beat you. I have tons of idea's a lot of time. You can call me Gage. i come by the blog a lot and this is my first time posting anything here. I would be more then happy to help you with anything.

It must be noted, however, that this will all take a lot of coding, especially for those last two I mentioned, and could take a long time and many more updates before the code is finished enough to be implemented. Still, nice ideas.
