Progress Outlook


I'm not dead, and I haven't given up on FC. So much for the good news. The other news: I don't anticipate another update in February. I'm busy with other things right now, though I do spend a few hours working on FC when I can. The real trouble is that playtesting, finalizing, publishing and minimally supporting an update takes most of a day, and I have no such block of time for FC before March. The partial compensation will be that the next update, delayed by my standards, will have an unusually great weight of man-hours behind it. I'm putting the odd moments I have for FC into revised descriptions and other quality of life improvements, rather than big changes - I'm up to 200 new phrases for specific combinations of shoes, clothes and hair, for example. I'm also working on a system that will allow the player some choice about who slaves are sold to.

    2. Haha... That is one way to look at it. This time I can actually get through until there is nothing more to upgrade! And I thought of a couple of new events that maybe I can finish and send before the next update too...

      Keep up the great work, FC!

    3. For me, personally, longer playthroughs mean seeing more content, which in turn means more chances to spot bugs and inconsistencies. QA welcomes more time between versions, even if it does piss off everyone else downstream waiting for a new release.

  12. Cool, at least you're giving us updates and a relative time frame. However, due to my waiting for the Elder Kings mod for CK 2 for over a year, I have a high tolerance for free games/mods being developed at a slow pace and don't care how long it takes.

  21. FC Author, could you add to surgical operations female circumcision? Maybe like an some sort of anti-nympho terapy or else. I think that such surgical operation would be suitable for FC.

  25. You've got nothing but support from us. Do what you need to do.

    I've seen a lot of developers run out of steam part way through development, go silent for a few weeks/months, come back saying they're not dead, and then never post again. But I don't think you're going to do that. The reason why I think that is because of those little blocks at the top of every update. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's noticed that those represent your design document.

    You have a very firm grasp on game theory, and have the programming and organizational skills to back it up. Whenever I see a new dev in the H-game community one of the first things I try and guess for myself is how long they'll stay in the community before they simply stop their project. You're one of the few devs I can think of who might actually cross that finish line and finish their game.

  26. Maybe it would be easier to describe clothes if it were more systematized.
    Many clothes are just different variation of same idea. Maybe make it a system - make all clothes have three "skimpiness" levels: modest, revealing and explicit.

    For example, current Nice Suit is modest version of Business Suit, Slutty Suit is Revealing, and Explicit is just jacket, tie and stockings.

  30. Your fetishes are very strongly in line with my own, especially the breast expansion/lactation fetishes.

    1. Hey, glad to hear it. Especially because lactation actually isn't a major fetish of mine. It's always good to get feedback on the content I'm not a huge personal fan of, since my own opinion is less useful.

      Best wishes. All of us get a visit from the little black dog sooner or later. Though I am lucky enough myself that perverted things are a nice refuge; I don't know what I'd do if feeling down robbed them of interest.

    2. Ahh, I thought I read somewhere that you enjoyed BE and lactation, still though. 99% of what's in this game is pretty fantastic. I haven't been able to play it for quite a few weeks so I really hope I get a chance to check it out again.

  33. Any chance you'll add orgasm denial stuff in the future? It would be great to keep your slaves with blue balls and only reward them with orgasms when they've done something worthy of praise.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Two things that would vastily improve readability of the slavelist in the summary (and possibly elsewhere):

    1. Rules summary per slave: Instead of phrasing it as "Living standard: spare. Speech rules: restrictive. Relationship rules: restrictive....", simply phrase it like this: "Rules: Living sparely, speech restricted, relations restricted, ..." It only saves of space per rule, but since there are so many it quickly adds up to much saved space, without needing abbreviations.

    2. The entries (slaves) need visual seperation. Even after over a dozen hours of playing, i still get confused about where one slave entry ends, and the next one begins. Option one (suboptimal because of vertical space cost): Instead of just one linebreak, make it two LBs between slave entries. Option two (more space efficient, but possibly harder to code): Put the slavelist into an actual html table with only one column: one row/cell per slave entry.

    On another note: i managed to get the help section to bug out into an i-loop, that only reload from an earlier savegame could fix (if you save when already trapped in the i-loop, the savegame is stuck in it too). I'm not sure how exactly i caused it, but i was in a facility screen i think, then went into the help section, browsing multiple pages - at some point, i could no longer exit help - the back-button would do nothing, but i could still navigate between help topics.

    Completely different matter: Personally, i'd be more willing to give the head girl a slave, if i had a way to disallow surgical bodymods. Yes, i can imagine the lore/RP-reasons for why its the way it is right now, but the result is i simply don't use the HG-slave feature at all right now. If that's considered better by the dev, so be it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just give her a random junk slave you bought just for her. The true power of the head girl is that having a personal slave allows her to train/mentor/nurse 2 of your slaves per week, along with training the one in her care. You can potentially turn her into a money factory as well as getting girls ready for leadership positions very quickly.

      Once you can buy the surgical upgrades, you can fix the tendons of girls she decides to heel. Not a fan of her mutilating girls either, but she gets results.

    2. (continued from above post)

      Haven't fallen asleep yet? Okay, here's the problem: In FC, almost everything is redundantly implemented. There is barely any reuse of code, and the gamefile is so freaking big, because what could be a 400kb codebase, is bloated up to x10 by repetition.

      Here's an example: You know there's a list of slaves in many places, right? One on the summary screen, another in the brothel, another in the club, another in the diary - they all look very similiar, with only minor differences, right?

      The code needed for just ONE of those lists is gigantic! It's countless pages long, and it must have taken the dev a painfully long time, to write all this, just to get a list of slaves. So, since it's so abysmally boring and long work, you'd think the dev only did this once, right? I mean, after he got the main screen slave list done, surely he wouldn't want to do all this work ALL OVER AGAIN, just to get a slavelist for the spa, or brothel, right?

      But he did so. There's one gigantic section of code for the main screen slavelist, another for the brothel, another for the club, another for ... i can't even criticize this, because i wince in pain and feel sorry for the developer, going through all this torture FOR NO REASON.

      How is this related to issues with the club, and many other things? Well, apparently the results of this style of programming, are very much affecting the developer's motivation. There IS already a section in the code, to calculate a slave's 'beauty', but it's optimized for whoring and sales. He didn't want to redundantly implement this all over again, for the club, or for the master's suite (what, you thought beauty of the slaves in there even matters? Nope - and neither does beauty of the concurbine matter - only prestige).

      So, the codebase is now at a point, where not only is it very difficult to maintain, but the prospect of having to duplicate proper mechanics again (and then having to maintain them later), now discourages the dev from implementing features properly and consistently, so he's taking shortcuts (i.e. basing club benefits on number of slaves, not their attributes, because counting number only takes a minute to implement - the alternative might take over an hour instead).

      And the problem is: This state of the game might not entirely be the developer's fault. First, he himself said he didn't know much about programming when he started, so it's understandable that he had to learn by doing first (why he continues not applying what he learned, escapes me though. He's making his life (and further development) unneccessarily hard this way).

      But perhaps more worrying is: The language he's using appears to be extremely limited. For example, either it doesn't even have functions (!!!), or the dev isn't using them. It does have callable 'scripts' in the form of the 'DISPLAY' command (and the beauty-routine does use it), but those do not seem to support parameters or return values. As a result, it's impossible to slightly vary the behavior of a gamemechanic, depending on context (think of all the slavelists).

      Bottom line: FC's codebase is on course to becoming unmaintainable, for even the most spirited developers - including apparently FC's current dev himself. The game might still expand in content (i.e. events), because that's mostly a matter of nicely contained addition. But in terms of gamemechanics, FC doesn't have much further to go. Existing mechanics might eventually get polished (including the club and suite issues), but there's not much room to expand - the codebase is close to collapsing under its own weight.

    4. "For example, either it doesn't even have functions (!!!), or the dev isn't using them." (I already talked to FC Dev about this)
      short version: it doesn't.
      long version: you could implement javascript functions, but then you would have to know a lot about javascript and there is only one window to write all the javascript functions in, nevertheless that could be one possible solution for a more manageable code (my knowledge about javascript and how to use it, is limited though).

      What FC Dev also does, is being very generous with for-loops, sometimes using 3 loops which do the same thing and slow down the code, instead of using just one.
      If he's searching for something in a loop, there are also no breaks, if he found it.

      Delete
    5. I had to reply after reading the rant on the code. I totally agree...
      I really enjoyed the game, but when i tried to see how it worked I had exactly the same reaction as the Anonymous dev above. I didn't know Twine, and after looking around a bit, I think it doesn't make it easy to write reusable/good code... This doesn't help when you have to fix bugs on new sub-systems if you have to do it one page at a time.
      I don't blame the dev, it is a good game with nice ideas, but i can see it being hard to come up with a good implementation if it's a first project like this.
      FC Author, maybe team up with devs to rewrite the code and you just "design" it / write content ?

      Delete
    6. I think widgets (or display if you set it up properly) could do re-usable code.

    7. Alternatively, it might be possible to call external javascript which can handle the functions for him.... I'm going to look into this and see if I can come up with a solution which I could suggest to FC Dev.

  37. Could you add an option in "Assignments" where slaves can be hooked up to pleasure-machines or the like, where they can be subjected to continuous orgasms (maybe with selectable frequencies) to desensitize them and make them more suitable for certain tasks, or just for fun?

  38. Small Request: an option to give slaves "fair" skin. I can't even begin to count how many times I have refreshed to get the right combination of name and skin for my more particular slaves.

    1. That would be a nice option when ordering custom slaves, or making slaves at the start of the game, but of course not just an option for fair skin but an option for all the skin colours.

    2. Yeah, all skin colors would be good, but the only one I know for certain to be unavailable when customizing an already acquired slave is fair skin, so I only mentioned fair skin.

      Delete
    3. I would have to change the code, though, to add PC customization up to my own standards. I don't like customization that only appears on a PC description screen; if customizations don't impact gameplay and scenes, then the player is just playing dress-up. There are plenty of doll simulators out there for that.

    2. There's no guaranteed way. Excellent whores, club girls, cows, and cumslaves can all receive events that offer the lowest level of prestige. There's a similar contributor-submitted event for generic ex-abolitionists.

      Delete
    3. so theres no way to reach the highest form of prestige?? coz the only slave girl i have with the phrase "Extremely Prestigious" is the slave i got from completely defeating the sisters and bankrupting and enslaving their leader, well id like to atleast try to get my bodyguard,headslave,recruiter and my mistress (the one in my bedroom) to have the highest prestige

      Delete
    4. That's correct, slaves can only reach the lowest of the three levels of prestige after you acquire them. This is intentional. Prestige is really very special: the highest level of prestige equates to being a household name in much of the world. That's not something you can force.

      Delete
    5. how bout just making the headslave and bodyguard raise their prestige to the highest but only after a certain amount of time, like you need say 100+ weeks of you headgirl being the headgirl and only if you the MC have a high enough popularity in your arcology, same with the bodyguard but you could fast track it with the fights, say the if your bodyguard reaches a certain no. wins in the pit fights you are invited in and the ones you yourself host and combine that with the no. of weeks your Bodyguard stayed as your bodyguard and your own popularity

      well its just that it should make them more or less infamous the more famous you get right?? your head slave and bodyguard as they are basically a certain representation of you the owner of the arcology

      Delete
    6. SUGGESTION - allow prestige stacking from multiple events.

      I had a "great cow" event trigger for a slave who was already prestigious from an earlier "great whore" event, but the game simply overwhore the slave's source of prestige. Now it could be that the event wasn't supposed to trigger for an already-prestigious slave, but I'd rather have the prestige levels add up and have the slave be known for more than one thing.

      The chance of a single slave hitting multiple prestige events is quite low to begin with. Gradually raising a waifu's prestige by tailoring her to the next event she needs might make a good incentive for long-play anons, though.

    7. I like the idea of prestige not being farmable.

    1. The game calculates a hidden military strength value based on your mercenaries, your drones, your armor, and the hacker support you can obtain in the event that immediately precedes the Daughters' final attack. To get the best outcome ("The Daughters are annihilated"), upgrade your arcology's security systems promptly, and then choose the most expensive option any time any of these things appear in an event.

    5. That's war for you. You fend off an army of enemies, which already infiltrated your base, in a surprise attack ... casulties are inevitable. But you gain fame and the spoils of war, isn't that worth it?

    6. Yeah, having more slaves is always good, and you show everyone that nobody messes whit you!

  55. Suppose I'll drop this here since this is the latest post:

    v0.6.1:



    BUGS

    - A muted slave who is placed on female hormones can get the 'hormones make her voice higher' event, which undoes the muting.

    - Female Head Girls given a fertile slave of their own in the Head Girl Suite seem to be able to impregnate them.



    TYPOS

    - The areolae-based nickname 'Broad Based' is missing the closing apostophe (it shows as 'Broad Based NAME, rather than 'Broad Based' NAME).



    SUGGESTIONS

    - Shemales set to cock-milking work or the Collection Facility should have ear piercings modified into tags, similar to how females being milked or in the Dairy are treated.

    - Should Mind-Broken slaves have a Trusted/Frightened description/number in the slave overview list/long info at all? Seems like a mind-broken slave wouldn't have the sense to care about (or be frightened of), well, anything.

    - Amputated slaves should be eligible for sending to the Spa even if they are rebellious/fearful - what are they going to do about it without limbs?

    - Sadist Head Girls should probably turn girls living in the Head Girl Suite into Masochists rather than 'Normal Sexuality' as they do now.

      Not really, it would't be fun for the sadist if the slave were masochist.

    2. >it would't be fun for the sadist if the slave were masochist

      ...You realize what the "SM" in BDSM stands for, right?

      Sadists get off on causing pain. Doesn't matter to them if the person they're hurting find the pain arousing, it's still pain

      Delete
    3. Believe me when I tell you not all do. For some having the victim enjoying the tretment is a mood killer. So what if SM is in BDSM? That doesn't mean anything.

    2. Yeah but I don't think people pick dogs to protect them from well-armed assassins

  57. also is there a chance that you can set rules exclusively to a certain task like for instance for dairy milking you can set that anyone who gets placed there will automatically have leather collar with bell equipped and have cow patterns if you choose to set it, basically same with the rule assistant but for specific jobs like milking,club,brothel etc etc

  58. 10 years since fc update.i walk through the empty streets trying to think of something else but my path always leads to fc. i stare at the screen for hours and try to summon the lord. i play other slave sim games but it is no good. i flame fenoxo on his forum and try to resist the nazi mods but it is all meaningless. the end is near.i then usually play some old fc versions and cry myself to sleep.

  59. Is there a way besides dividends to get money out your corporation, or is there a way to set dividends even higher? After growing the corporation aggressively, I have it making tons of money, but I'm still only allowed to pay out about 40,000 per turn back to myself as dividends. So the corporation makes 500,000, and only pays ~40,000, while sitting on the rest. Would be nice if there was a way for the company to buy back its own stock or some other mechanism to distribute profits above 2 per share.

    1. And why you need to complicate it? It's kind not a financial game ).

      Delete
    2. Because money plays a role in the game and it's weird to have it, but not be able to use it.

      I wouldn't be against having a simpler system where the player is the sole owner of the company and doesn't have to deal with the whole stock/dividend and public vs private ownership, but the author put it into the game, so he must have a reason for it.

  60. Any updated ETA, other than "this month", for the update?

    ReplyDelete
  61. If you intend to take another month or two, that's totally ok, just give us another progress outlook.

    Just don't do the Konashion thing. Keep us posted.

  62. does the Female Arcology Owner event (the one you get with a high enough popularity) give you anything besides a popularity boost?? coz i thought maybe you could enslave another Arcology owner with this event

    1. Have you tried place bounty on her?

      Delete
    2. Those are two different things. The one EverGrey is referring to is a random event available above a certain reputation level.
      To answer the original question, no, I don't think there is anything in the code for that event that will allow you to enslave them.

  64. besides enslaving the Daughters Arcology owner supporter theres no other way to acquire slaves with high prestige??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Get your reputation high enough and you'll be able to buy slaves who are already prestigious.

      Delete
    2. Let them serve as public servants for extended periods of time, then when the event arises at the end of the week: choose the "Lavish money upon her" option and hope for success.

      Delete
    3. i meant really high prestige like the Daughters Arcology owner supporter that you can enslave, if i recall youd get a "Extremely Prestigious". i was asking if you can get another slave like that one??

      Delete
    4. wait nvm, DrPills suggestion hits it right on the nose but its random so yeah alot of load and save to get the right ones, but perfection requires a little extra work

      Delete
  65. Bug:

    If the Daughters take away one of the slaves and that slave is in a relationship with another, then the relationship is restored when the slaves returns.

    However, since the other slaves that did not leave loses its relationship status: if that particular slave gains a new relationship status, then the returning slave still maintains its attachment to the non-released slave; the non-released slave still will have no attachment to the returning slave.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I tested it further and found that the non-released spouse actually does still maintain a connection to the returning slave. This means that in this case:

      The non-released slave has an attachment to both the released slave AND the third-party slave.

      (I had to sell all three to rectify the bug.)

  67. i have to share this one

    12 slaves are being confined in the cellblock until they are willing to obey. Zhao Li is serving as the wardeness. She is so sexually depraved that she constantly molests the prisoners, breaking them to a life of servitude. She is strong enough to restrain anyone that tries anything with her own hands. Her devotion to you is so absolute that she sees breaking bitches for your service as a noble calling. 11 slaves are now willing to do as they're told and have been released.

    hahahaha they were like "OH PLEASE MASTER ANYTHING BUT HER!" hahahaha

  68. Are you looking into having the player get pregnant by slaves if they choose to make the character female?
