ALPHA 0.6.5: "Youth versus Experience"


One of the legends of games design once described a good game as "a series of interesting choices." I really like this way of thinking about games, and I try to keep it in mind while I work on FC. If at any point in the game the player doesn't really have a choice, or one of the available choices is clearly superior, that's not good. Of course, erotic games like FC have an added requirement: they should be full of choices that are both interesting and sexy. There are some interesting decisions in FC, and a lot of sexual ones, but the best are both. This update should improve some old choices, and add good new ones.

I'm working around some hard limits when it comes to PC customization. The basic problem is this: the time it takes to write a scene is probably proportional to the square of the number of PC options. I mention this because this update adds an age choice to PC customization, and I'm sure I'm going to get requests for younger and older options. Unless I go back and add a lot more code to scenes, mental changes, initial slave feelings, and reputation, I need to assume that the PC is energetic, handsome and/or pretty, and has had at least some time to accomplish things before we meet them. If we get outside the 25-50 range I've been assuming all along, that gets increasingly unlikely. To allow the player some room for imagination, the choices are "surprisingly young," "early middle age," and "late middle age." I suppose it's possible to write a backstory that fits with what we see in game for a really remarkable 20 or 60 year old PC, so feel free to interpret those vague descriptors.

Finally, I've added an option at game start to disable "extreme content," which I've provisionally defined as amputation, muting, rib removal, surgical mindbreak, and gelding. To be blunt, having this option should not be controversial. Your FC experience will be unaffected by the availability of this option if you play with extreme content active, so I'm uninterested in hearing complaints about letting someone else avoid what they consider a boner killer. FC is officially pro-boner. The corollary to the current trend towards acceptance of other people's notions of what's sexy is that it needs to be okay for people to find things unsexy, too. Comments insulting others for not wanting to see amputee content will be deleted just like comments insulting others for wanting to see amputee content. Take it elsewhere. That said, if you'd like a refinement of the current definition of extreme content to exclude something else you don't want to see, or to include something you don't want pruned, by all means leave feedback.

Download: DropboxMegaPrevious saves will not work. 0.6.5.2 is the latest hotfix, 1045 PST 3/31. Probably save compatible. Latest hotfix addresses rep bug.

0.6.5 Changelog

Starting options
  • Player character age. Available options are young, early middle age, and late middle age. The older the PC, the higher their starting reputation, the easier it is to maintain reputation, and the lower their sexual energy. New slaves may react to a significant age gap with the PC.
  • New starting option to disable extreme content; this is currently set up to disable amputation, muting, rib removal, surgical mindbreak, and gelding.
  • Extreme content and nicknaming toggles added to options.
  • Made starting slave customization much more deterministic to discourage spamming the same choices in hopes of getting a specific result.
Sexual energy
  • The game now tracks the PC's sexual energy, a hidden derived stat. Fucktoys and master suite slaves will receive greater or lesser effects depending on the ratio of such slaves to the PC's sexual energy.
  • Added a new alternative focus to training slaves personally or focusing on business: sex. This raises the PC's sexual energy for the week and is useful if the player wishes to quickly improve many fucktoys or slaves in the master suite.
  • In compensation, improved the business focus effect on arcology prosperity gains.
Future societies
  • Added laws to Maturity and Youth Preferentialism. Each law eases reputation maintenance and improves the business focus for PCs of the corresponding age group.
  • Eased the inappropriately unforgiving advancement curve of Edo Revivalism.
  • The Concubine now counts towards the size of an Arabian Revivalist harem.
  • Added a demand element to the body type future society laws (Asset Expansionism, Transformation Fetishism, etc.) that slightly increases demand for slaves that fit the model.
New events
  • The PC can walk in on sadistic slaves verbally torturing anal virgins.
  • Generic sexual event with a fisting option, per an old request.
Mental revisions
  • Getting a slave to Worshipful and Absolute Trust is now slower without personal attention, but quicker with it.
  • Increased stickiness of Extreme Hatred and Abject Terror.
  • Worshipfulness will break a slave loose from Extreme Hatred; Absolute Trust will break a slave loose from Abject Terror.
  • Renamed Daring to Perverted to avoid similarity to Caring.
  • Recast High Self Esteem to Insecure based on feedback.
  • Boosted reputation gain from trust and devotion overflows.
  • Abuse will now produce a much wider variety of flaws.
  • Reviewed all fetish changes to reduce frequency of changes and add devotion as a factor where it wasn't one.
  • Greatly increased the natural incidence of slaves without fetishes.
  • Slave relationships
  • Slaves on luxurious rules with lovers or wives get an upkeep discount, since the two can share a room.
  • Lots more slices of life for slaves with lovers or wives, randomly visible on the main menu.
  • Revised long form relationship and relationship rules descriptions to make what the PC is permitting clearer.
  • Slaves in the Head Girl suite will not form relationships with the HG unless they are Accepting or better.
Other updates
  • Rebalanced slave costs: minimum prices increased, value curve flattened, importance of many qualities changed.
  • Heavily increased effectiveness of expending virginities during whoring or public service.
  • Added artistic Asian tattoos.
  • Added cheerleader, club netting, and shibari rope outfits.
  • Added a weather cladding upgrade that hardens the arcology against the weather, dropping the weather down one severity level for damage purposes.
  • Now possible to rename the arcade, club, and brothel: this function will be extended to all facilities in the future.
  • Reformatted the end of week reports to prioritize the slave's job performance and make things clearer.
  • Moved several options from the main menu to the options menu.
  • Better rules assistant logic to avoid wasting money when applying body mods and cosmetics.
  • Rebalanced reputation element of prosperity growth to discourage the player from ignoring reputation.
  • Expanded massive corporate investment to virtually exhaust the corporation's cash on hand.
  • Basic first turn walkthrough added to the encyclopedia.
  • Bugfixes.

  2. "Now possible to rename the Club, Arcade, and Brothel..."

    Quick question, would it be possible to add in an option to force their names in line with your chosen Future Society? Like how you can rename every slave according to ancient x custom.

    And can we also get a Remote Surgery area of the Rules Assistant? I'd like to be able to remove all implants in healthy slaves automatically.

    1. I saw a Remote Surgery menu in Rules Assistant a few versions back. There was no notification that it had become available; I only realized it when I saw that several slaves had plastic surgery applied to them when I knew I had done no such thing. Must have been something that slipped through the cracks; I wouldn't be surprised to see it reappear in a future version.

  3. Your "extreme" definition sounds good, though I disagree with the inclusion of gelding - simply because that's a fairly significant mechanic, to the point of functioning as a third "gender." It'd be nice to be able to turn the rest off without losing out on that in the process

    1. "Subordinate sex slave" does that - you can name a specific slave or have them serve everyone. It's not as extensive as giving a slave to your Head Girl, though - they can't be modified by the girls they're assigned to.

      I'm working on modding in an option like that for the Bodyguard, gated behind the private room upgrade, but I'm not experienced with Twine and this isn't my code so I haven't got it working yet. I'd love to see this added officially but don't know if the demand is enough to make up for the work it would take.

  8. Okay, I hate to make pretty much the first thing I mention a complaint, and maybe not even a bug, however I have a girl wearing a Shibari outfit and the only thing in purple is that she regains independence by making snide comments, and I have got her on aphrodisiacs, building devotion, personal fucktoy, all of that, and a lot of pink's coming across the screen... and her devotion remains unchanged. I've been trying to build her devotion even with snide comments so that I could keep her Bitchiness and soften it into something else, and right now that's looking impossible. So... that's really aggravating at the moment, and I don't know if it's a bug or a balancing thing, however you might want to consider rebalancing that.

  9. Average faces sometimes come with the description "Her face is attractive." This is confusing, since the standard descriptor for Face+ is "Attractive." Also, can we get (at least an option to have) more extreme values in random draws? Natural D and up breasts and very attractive/unattractive faces almost never show up in random slaves.

      In the first part of "SA clothes" it calls for Devotion OR a Humiliation fetish. I'm not positive, but I think that it's supposed to call for Devotion AND a Humiliation fetish. Um, please just ignore me if I'm wrong though.

  12. I really enjoy the feel of progression in slaves. The thing I’d like to see most would be an increase in the stages of asset expansion. Its really fulfilling to pursue a maximum breast size, but the other trees are not as deep. Id be looking to get slaves with bigger cocks, bigger balls, butts , muscles, fatness, and then capped off with an event each that reflects living with the assets much like the fall down boobs in shower scene.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Are you asking for the maximum size to be raised, or for the stats to be made more granular? For example, butts are now (roughly) 1-10. Are you wanting them to be in CC values like tits, or for the maximum ass size to be raised?

      In any case, more max size events are certainly doable. There are currently max muscle and dick events in game.

      Delete
    2. I enjoy hitting each level of growth progression. So I would support a more granular system. If you came back and told me there is now 20 different stages of ass expansion up from 10. And 20 sizes of cock up from [4/5]? But the maximum size is still the same that would improve my enjoyment .
      I would also be interested in changing to a system that used hard fact numbers. CC’s for balls, inches for dicks. Something for asses as well.
      But my original intent was to say id most like to see an increase in the maximum attainable size for each asset.
      Hope I didn’t take to long getting back since there’s now quite a few comments below me. [been at work ]

      Delete
    3. Personally, I would love to see all the other "assets" of the body have the same level of progression that the breasts have, i.e. weight, ass, penis, height. Plus a more detailed list of levels would allow for many differentiation between character has huge ass vs character has to shuffle sideways to go through doorways huge ass. Might be too much to ask but would really appreciate it in game. Love the good work, keep it up.

  13. Just a quick comment, once you finish the Edo Society change you get the title (Emperor and Descendant of Ameratsu) I believe it should be (Emperor and Descendant of Amaterasu) if you are talking about the Shinto Religion in which she is the Goddess of the Sun and the Universe of which she is a major deity and the Japanese Emperors are said to be her descendants.

  15. Great work as always. FCDev is best dev. We need better logic for the "slaves choice" clothing option though, they always end up choosing to go naked. Also, under the rules assistant, options are still listed as "obedient and better" or such, when the word "obedient" isn't used any more for devotion. It might be a little confusing to new players.

  16. FS Actition events still don't seem to work due to the FSAcquisitionEvents array never being initialized.

  19. SORTA SUGGESTION

    >Greatly increased the natural incidence of slaves without fetishes.

    Is this prudent? I fear it would make slaves more interchangeable if they all start normal and so you just develop whatever fetish you want them to have.

    What do you think about weak dispositions that could be developed into the correspomding fetishes more easilly than other fetishes? Say having slaves that are interested in butt-stuff, even though they aren't actually into anal, yet.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Randomly generated slaves used to be overwhelmingly likely to be secret fetishists of some kind or another. Not realistic. 0.6.5 only bumps it to 50-50. I think this is a good balance, because there's now the entire quirk system that pushes fetishes on vanilla girls, in addition to all preexisting sources of fetishes.

      Delete
  20. I'd suggest making slaves with modifiers that encourage a fetish *much* less likely to switch off that fetish. (I haven't played this version yet so maybe the reduction in change rate fixes most of it, but in previous versions I was seeing slaves sometimes switch between two different fetishes every week, if they had things encouraging both sorts of fetish.)

    It seems like fetish change *away* from an encouraged fetish (for instance, a Romantic Pregnancy Fetishist) should just not happen at all.

    1. Why wouldn't a romantic girl have a pregnancy fetish? In fact I'd even argue that it would be logical that a girl with that quirk would gain that fetish.

    2. Seems like having to give up the kid afterwards would be enough to put her off it.

    3. Oh yeah I forgot about that because in my head canon I keep all of my kids. But really if she's a whore how does the romantic thing even work? She loves every customer? It's silly. I mean if she was in your suit or something yeah sure. Even losing the kid might be ok if it's what you want.

      Delete
    4. No, I meant - if she's a Romantic Pregnancy fetishist, it's kind of silly when she switches to Submissive due to her clothes or whatever.

      Delete
    5. Oh yeah the yoyoing fetishes can be hilarious at times. Are you also playing with the fellating food dispenser and the sodemy medicine? Gets even better. I've seen a girl switch fetishes three times in a week once. You'd think switching that much would get her to be a nympho quicker, but nope apparently not.

      Delete
  21. haven't dived into the update yet but ohhhh boy am I excited there's a cheerleader outfit now! the little synergies and combinations between clothing pieces and specific fetishes are one of my favorite details in the game, hopefully they get expanded more and there's stuff like "cheerleading uniform for the [pc name] high school cumsluts!" in the future

  22. Something has to be messed up, I've never had more than one slave being a public slut, no club, no fuck toys, and I'm on week 20 and I'm being worshiped. I always paid the 1K at the end of the week and I choose to be older which is where I think the mistake must be.

  23. Seems like you can't specifically place Asian art tatoos on slaves, only full-body tattoo seems to work. Although you can currently full-body apply them and remove the ones you don't want.

  24. Well, I'll say I'm a little surprised that gelding is in the extreme content category, given the prevalence of shemale content and the ability to make feminized male slaves a pillar of your society, though I won't try to persuade you to pull it, since I don't feel the need to play with content restricted in any way. I'm not fond of most of the options to surgically restrict your slaves, but I don't mind that they exist. While I don't do any heavy body modding to my own slaves, having the content exist and crop up every now and then adds good flavor to the game. It's kind of like a reminder of why my slaves all grow to love me in my highly paternalistic society, having other slavers out there that inflict atrocities on their slaves.

  28. BUG - something's wrong with rep again.

    I started with social engineering to pick up gender revisionist FS week 1. Around week 8, my rep suddenly went to UNKNOWN and the FS text in the weekly update changed to this:

    "On formal occasions, you are announced as D, owner of the arcology. Most prominent slaveowners are very masculine, and your somewhat feminine appearance makes it harder for you to maintain your reputation."

    2. I'm on week 44 and I've been unknown from the beginning. I wound up hacking my money up because I was getting nowhere fast. I mean, I stopped the attack with the armed drones and my exosuit and had the full platoon of mercs. That's usually good for a reputation bump. And I gave away one of my girls to the romantic merc, which is also usually good for a bump. Nothing. Also:
      Head Girl Suite
      Brothel (8/15 whores, madam)
      Club (17/20 sluts, DJ)
      Arcade (0/5 inmates)
      Dairy (20/20 cows, milkmaid)

      Master Suite (1 bedslaves, concubine)
      Schoolroom (0 students, schoolteacher)
      Spa (0 bathers, attendant)
      Cellblock (7 prisoners, wardeness)

      I should have at least known by now, right? I chose the surprisingly young male Master, and once I started tacking on rooms I added the weather reinforcements, which together with surprisingly young might zero out rep every turn or negate rep gain entirely.

  31. *"This option will affec scenes but will not change difficulty."

    *Both "Hateful" and "Utterly hateful" during slave creating show the same value.

    *Dick descriptions don't show up during slave creation. Vagina descriptions do.
    Applies to some slave gain events too.

    *"manipulating them like a music teacher guiding a pupil's hands on an insturment"

    *"Your Head Girl will prioritize training in the following order:
    Your head girl will TREAT poor health. Stop improving health
    Your head girl will SOFTEN flaws. Stop fixing flaws | Fix flaws
    Your head girl will TRAIN obedience. Stop training obedience
    Your head girl will TRAIN skills. Stop training skills "
    She keeps training skills even though I have slaves with flaws.

  32. Why not rather than have extreme content and make someone suffer for having to turn it on to see one fetish they like or off for the same reason. Why not have ban flags for each fetish that someone can choose in an options menu (With an all on/off button for people who dont need to pick through them all) That way everyone wins since you have to put ban flags anyways to block extreme content you might as well customize the ban flags so people can personalize banning to their tastes.

  33. New slave from the mother/daughter recruitment, got a lot done in one week:

    She is Halim's lover; the rules encourage their passionate relationship. She sleeps on a cot, and she is not allowed to masturbate or proposition slaves other than her girlfriend. She almost gleams; she's in the absolute best of health. Fanta is young and fresh, only 18 or 19. She has been with you one week, and has been fucked about 481 times, including 154 vanilla, 162 anal, and 165 oral sexual encounters. Her brown eyes are clever; she is of above average intelligence due to being well educated. She behaves oddly, saying and doing random things. Her sexuality is quite normal. She is Gamalat's daughter. She was recruited into your service by her mother.

  35. I really like the game, but I have a few observations/suggestions anyway. :-D

    I think I have found a BUG with the Spa. A slave gained over 3 points of health in one weak without an attendent being present. That seems too much even for the upgraded spa.

    I like your pro-boner campaign, but would suggest to use ban flags to turn off specific fetishes as someone already suggested.

    I would also like the option to change the ideal body in the game. I personaly find girls that can't get up because their tits are too big a turn off. I much prefer well proportioned girls. Multiple options for an ideal slave would be nice. Examples would be: Bigger is better (the present setting, prefering exessive growth), Proportions over size (a setting prefering balanced T&A of any size), Extremes are ugly (mali for unnatuarlly exessive sizes), More than a handfull is wasted (moderate sizes preferred) and Petit is pretty (smaller T&A preferred). I know the FS options already allow some of that, but that is later game content. I don't want to work my way through hours of gameplay until I have unlocked enough FS options and being punished for my prefereces by lower slave prices and income on the way.

    This is probably a bigger change as pricing and the head girl TFs have to fit the chosen option.

    The head girl is also not working in the way I would expect and prefer:

    At the moment she checks the first girl for health, flaws, obedience and skills. That the second girl, than the third etc.

    I would expect and prefer her checking the first girl for health, than the second, etc. When she is done with checking all the girls health, she should check all the girls for flaws, than all the girls for obedience problems, and finaly all the girls for possible skill improvements.

    You will have to exchange the outer and inner loops to do that.

  36. Well, you tied the amount of income you get per week from rents to reputation, but that doesn't solve the issue. Reputation is useless because it affects very little. Likewise, rents eventually become useless because they don't scale well. When you have hundreds of slaves, all of your income comes from your facilities. The rents just try to handle -some- of the upkeep.

    So if you want to make reputation useful, then you increase the maximum amount of rent possible to something much higher, say, 100,000 a week. With extra upgrade tiers to reach these levels of profit, of course.

    And you add profitable events that relate to prominent citizens dealing with you that simply don't happen if your reputation is too low. This game is a fantastic money making sim and the two handed mode can never get enough support. If having a high reputation allowed weekly deals that gave discounts on drugs, boosted profit of facilities permanently or temporarily, or lucrative investments that paid weekly dividends, then it makes sense.

    But reputation just doesn't do enough. Every slave working in the club could be working the brothel and making you money. Money is always more important than reputation. Maybe having a high reputation could let you take out loans? Or perhaps put money into a savings account with a high rate of return? Or allow you to turn into a slum lord who invites loads of poor people into the archology and then enslaves them when they can't pay rent?

    Then reputation would matter. But it currently doesn't.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think a better way to make reputation valuable would be to divorce it from money making, and have it be a serious determinant in what events are available, or what options are available in most events by flavoring the type of reputation you have. There is a lot of discussion about the whole "Nice" master "Mean" master. Perhaps you could make the reputation effect that. High reputation masters of either persuasion are necessary to get access to high reputation events obviously, but perhaps famously cruel masters don't get as many people willingly offering enslavement? Instead perhaps you will have other slave owners offering to sell rebellious slaves to the master for cheap because they are tired of their shit, or slavers who are willing to sell mean masters cheap slaves in bulk since they don't need to be broken first, the PC will handle that. Mean master might in turn not see the "nice" slave events like the "Night visit" or the like.

      Nice masters in turn might see more voluntary enslavement options and more nice events like the night visit, but would in turn see more rebellious slave options like the escape attempt or refusing to leave the bedroll because the slaves know the PC won't hurt them. I know most of this is handled by the devotion/ fear scales but the PC reputation could synergize with that pretty well by just effecting the chances of the different events appearing, minimizing code changes. As for determining whether the Pc is nice or mean you could simply have rep work as normal but have another hidden "moral" stat that shifts with certain choices. Up whenever you chose a nice option in an event or say restore a vagrant's tendons and down for every limb you lop off and every girl that dies in your arena.

    2. Rep's main function right now is getting FS going, and buying fancy slaves. I do like the idea that there could be more nice mean options based on your rep.

  37. One thing that I must request, I've only started playing the game from the 0.6.4 stages and I'm already vastly annoyed by the time it takes to restart the game. I must say that while I absolutely adore the challenge of starting my harem again, it's a real pain jumping through the hoops on the slave customization screen to get my starting girls back again.

    If there was anyway to make this process less painful then I'd be much happier restarting the game over and over again to check out the changes. Little things like being able to input their race, career and name. I'm so sick of bashing the randomize buttons over and over again to get the right one, only to hit it again accidentally after my brain has turned off somewhere in the process.

    I'm jumping up from 0.6.4 to 0.6.5.1 so I'm pretty eager to check out the new features and see if you've fixed the issues I faced in the last version of the game but so far I'm just stuck doing the really boring part again.

    Otherwise, love the game.

    2. Trying this new version of the custom girl creator, a lot of the functions don't seem to be responding to the value input anymore. There is no price difference between "Brilliant" and "Smart" which kind of ruins the point of limiting them that way. Nothing under "Very Tall" has any effect on the price while Lips, Voice and Weight are completely ignored.

      "Unattractive" and "Very Unattractive" are the same thing, breasts and asses are put into price groups of "Flat", "Healthy" and "Big" versus "Huge" and "Massive". Basically, I much preferred the pricing system from the older versions.

      In the older versions, I could make 5 severely low valued slaves for 10,000 at 2,000 each or I could make 1 extremely helpful slave at 10,000 to kick start my game either way with that starting money. Now though, a lot of the challenge of starting that way is taken away and I think it's really taking a lot of the fun out of trying to train/overcome the limits of your starting slaves.

    3. Actually, I've given the new pricing system a new try (both ways) and I actually prefer(ish) the new system now. I believe it could use a little touching but generally it's working somewhat better than it did back in 0.6.4. Creating a single "helping hand" is much easier and she now requires significantly less work before you can focus your attention elsewhere and creating three low value slaves severely reduces the kickstart I get from this so I can't just abuse the new facilities system by installing custom made slaves into those positions.

      I would still like the custom slave creator (at the beginning) to be less tedious if you're expecting players to restart the game with every new version. Being able to select a career and race and input a name would be a huge step in reducing the tedium in that regard but otherwise, great job.

  38. While I see how some can consider gelding and vocal cord removing extreme content it would be nice if a lighter version of these 2 surgeries were available. For vocal cords you could have a device installed that forces them to be silent instead of just removing the vocal cords altogether. That way people who like forced silence can still have that without the guilt of ripping out someones vocal cords. And for gelding it would be good if there was an internal/external surgery for the testicles, for people who like their futa or trap boys without balls but don't want to completely mess up their gender.

      Maybe some size training options like in "jack o nine tails", which could then reflect on other scenes.
      I mean my slaves always more or less always end up with gaping holes, but with little content to reflect on that. (tight holes could have a benefit as well, maybe even a training regiment would be useful for that)

    This is in no way refined mod, but it may be useful for someone more talanted in coding to code in and a general idea for additional extreme content.

Also, I seem to remember the Tall height level getting 'mild approval' but now only Very Tall slaves that are getting 'mild approval.'

  52. FC Dev, here's a save where the reputation bug can be reproduced.

    This slave serving the public causes the reputation to bug out right after the cash screen and get stuck at unknown. This doesn't happen in this save if you don't serve the public.

    Also, the brothel upkeep bug is also on display. You'll notice that the upkeep is at 1500 for the brothel. If you run 5000 in ads, the upkeep suddenly jumps to 16500. So it seems that the game is making you pay much more money than it should here.

  62. Hi FC Author, (not sure if that's how I'm supposed to call you)

    I've been playing this game a lot. Found it in February and I just can't tell you how much I love it! The fact that there is less text than other text-based games, works so much better on me as that gets old really, really fast. The business side of the game has me completely hooked and god! There's hardly a thing that comes to mind that's wrong with the game. I have even created a spreadsheet to help me micromanage my slaves to make the most of everything. (I'm addicted to Excel at the moment.)

    However( you knew there was a but coming), I only figured out how to help increase my reputation in the arcology through public servants in the 0.6.2.3 update. Before then, I was going in blind. Now I'd REALLY like some help with reknown in yellow? That never seems to go up or down(unless I forgot about it.) I can't figure out how to influence it.

    Could you add a page in the encyclopedia that lists all the available reputations? I can't tell if I can push it higher or if I'm stuck in the middle.

    Then there's the corporation that happens later in the game. Can I get a better explanation as to how the three options - buy, massive investment, sell - work? I know to buy low and sell high, but I click on these options and have no idea of the impact it does on the business. Nor do I know how massive investment works - does it buy a lot or sell a lot or something else?

    Now I know that FC is a openbox game( I might have that spelt wrong or something) with no end in sight, so is there any chance we could have a list of events somewhere? I get week 100 before I stop receiving any major impact stories so I was wondering if I had finished the storyline by chance? (World collapses, shooting event, the Daughters event, the rival arcology who sided with Daughters.) Also I have these random placeholder events which I can't, for the life of me, figure how they happen or how to benefit from them. Maybe slave schools?

    Currently, I am playing the game on Chrome and had no problems but with ver.0.6.5.1 I can't save in the save slots??? (I can save the game to disk but that's truly annoying and inconvenient) Some weird popup appears saying:

    Error: unable to set key "saves": localStorage quota exceeded

    and then a lot of files from my laptop are mentioned. Please note, I haven't changed any setting on my laptop so I have no idea if it's me or the new update which has a problem. For now, I'll change to Firefox to play.

  63. So about the economics of this game. I never had milk cows before because I found the idea odd and unsexy but I started up a new game today in 0.6.5.1 and one of the random slaves I got at the start was a milk cow. So I rolled with it. And I just couldn't believe what she was earning. She was obviously a customised and devoted slave that maximised production but she earned twice as much in a week as an expert prostitute.

    Is that the kind of income the game is balanced around? I don't begrudge people their preferences here but I'd like to think that the highly skilled services of a top-of-the-line slave prostitute would atleast equal that of a milk cow.

    1. I'm the same as you, I just grab 10 cows and a milkman, inflate the cows, roid up the maid, throw them in the dairy and never look at them ever again.

  69. I seem to be getting that masturbation event that lets you possibly set a sexual fetish with slaves who already have one. This results in their fetish changing. This did not happen before, so I assume it is a bug.

    I quite like the nickname aspect in the game, but find it weighted a little odd. I often get the event for newer slaves I have not yet 'personalised', yet can often take a long time to get it with the slaves I am ready for. Could it perhaps be weighted towards more prominent slaves, who logically would get the most attention, and less likely with new slaves that no one yet knows? Leadership positions and/or seniority would make sense to me.

    One thing, however, that often bugs me. The names are sometimes odd (ie you clearly pulled random names off the Internet, rather than names that are actually common in that nation) and often keep getting repeated (resulting in 2-3 slaves with the same name), and the nickname options sometimes make absolutely no sense to me. I suspect the latter is a cultural bias on your end that does not translate outside your region. Definitely a low priority, but perhaps you need to do a little clean-up with names and nicknames? Since it is just lists of words, you could easily farm this task out to the fans to do all the work for you!

    If you use the option to abuse a slave, it will sometimes say something about anal penetration. If that slave is an anal virgin before the event, she will still have her virginity after it. Had that happen several times to me.

  74. My Slaves still randomly change their age from 18 to 40 in just one week
    when i press the export button i can see that the age changed from 18 to 181
    did nothing special with the slave so i dont know what might have changed that

  75. Really like what I've seen so far.

    I'd like to see a few more options for player-initiated sexual interactions. Perhaps adjusted based on the slave's quirks and flaws? More detailed descriptions would be nice. Perhaps a status screen with a nested table to give a visual representation of a slave's stats?

    I was disappointed to see the page names stop appearing in the left hand column from the previous version to this one. The visual feedback when ending a week was nice when you have a lot of slaves and it takes a while to process.

    Oh, and one little thing that's been bugging me: "May you" in the second person is an imperative, not a request. Bad grammar at best, entirely inappropriate for a slave to say to her master in any case.

  77. It used to feel like slave training synergized well with managing the arcology, but it doesn't seem that way anymore.

    The benefits of renown, slave training and future societies do not feel concrete and immediate enough. In my current playthrough I'm on week 88 and am a prominent millionaire pulling in 20k+ a week and my slaves are basically just clutter. I don't even look at what they do anymore and I summarily reject new ones whenever possible. They're kind of just in the way because they take too long to make a benefit that is only marginal compared to sitting on assets.

  78. It seems like Maturity Preference FS is bugged. Sometimes it will just randomly reset from very enthusiastic to beginning to be enthusiastic, and the arcology upgrades aren't mentioned on the arcology description.

  79. Am I the only one experiencing problems with arcology reputation? Under arcology management, despite having my reputation at "esteemed", the game keeps telling me "Your low reputation relative to your arcology's prosperity seriously impedes business growth. Unless it's referring to my "Renown"? That's been stuck like that since the 5th week! Oh and I've fully upgraded my arcology so that's not the issue either.

    2. Reputation has nothing to do with upgrades. Your reputation level is what's under upkeep and the higher the rating, the faster your prosperity increases naturally.

      Delete
    3. I've played the game in previous updates, and my reputation did help the arcology when it increased.

      Currently, I have it on "Prestigious" or something beginning with "p" but no changes to the problem.

    4. You do need sufficient rep in order to upgrade your pharmacy and sugary. Rep also gates the number of future societies you can be running, having the cooperation, and what slaves you can buy at the slave auction place. At really high rep levels your brand increases the value of a slave both in weekly beauty for whoring and stuff as well as resell value.

      This release has rep being bugged if you read the other comments in the thread. If you have a slave work as a public slut, in the brothel, or in the club your rep crashes. So yeah it's a bad one. Having slaves be fucktoys is about the only way to increase rep reliably unless you choose the old man start because that's bugged right now and will easily take you to rep cap by week 15 or so.

  81. Hi. Just play-tested this version. It broke down about week 50.
    The head girl stopped doing anything.
    Reputation did not go up properly , based on past games.

  82. SUGGESTION

    Can we get accents? A brief mention in the slave description and the text generated when you ask about her feelings could suffice, I think.

    1. I feel like that's what nationality is for. If we tried putting accents for JUST North America I can name at least ten. Doing that for every nation would effectively require him to just stop all work on anything else in the game for a good long while as he looks up.all the regional accents present in each one.

  83. I noticed a minor textual error when pitting mother and daughter against each other in lethal combat. If the winner worships the PC, the wrong relationship is reported, i.e. the daughter will be said to accept "her daughter's" death instead of "her mother's" and the other way around.

  84. Something I would like to suggest, and that might please other people... I would certainly like it :

    -Separate the 'End the week' and 'Continue' button.
    It ridiculous(and personally annoying) the number of time I ''skipped'' a week, because I accidentally double-clicked to leave a slave's menu... or because of the lag(usually starts after 20+ slaves, but more after 50+)... etc.

  85. Bug Report - if you click on a girl in a facility, then use the navigation arrows at the top of her personal screen to try to move to the next girl in the facility list, the game bugs out and spawns a large number of $activeSlave errors. Tested in Cellblock.

  86. Suggestion: An Arcade that milks slaves should get a profit boost when you've banned all non slave dairy products in your Free City.

    1. Huhhh... It already does.
      At least, I'm quite sure it did in the previous version.

      I used to get a bug, in the previous version(which I corrected then, and was corrected in this one), when I enabled the ''Milk/Cum only'' law... And it used to affect the Arcade, Milk Farm and Collection Facility.
      So, I would presume that it DOES change values for the Arcade.

      Delete
    2. It does.

      The Dairy, Collection Facility (with upgrade), and Arcade (with upgrade) all call for "SA get milked", which is where the profit boost is located.

      I assume that the reason he thinks the Arcade doesn't get the boost is because the value for Arcade milk is WAY lower than the value of Dairy or Collection Facility milk (60% for the Collection Facility and 30% for the Arcade).

  89. I think I remember seeing posts about how growth hormones weren't working. Does that include female and male hormones? I've had my slaves on them for quite a while and the only message that appears is "Her drug regime prepares her body to accept hormonal effects." No softening of the voice, breast or butt growth. So I'm stuck with doing all that surgically. However, I can still give my slaves breast, butt, etc drugs for growth. Those do work.

    Please FCDev, could you fix this? I prefer to use the surgery as little as possible to keep my slaves all natural.

  90. Something seems to be wrong with the way the brothel is managing the health of slaves, the two I have had in there the longest are at unhealthy and extremely unhealthy.

    I have the aphrodisiac upgrade.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. From what I know and have seen, when you give 'aphrodisiac' to a slave, sometimes it will damage their health(particularly the aphrodisiac+ version)... So, I would presume that it may also do it, when they are ''stationed'' in a Brothel or another facility.

      Delete
    2. Well, the problem actually comes from the "Side Effects" update (0.6.2).

      It add an invisible "chem score" that goes up by one every week if a slave is on any drugs other that preventatives (which freezes the score). It only goes down if you take them off of ALL drugs, and after it reaches a certain number (10) it randomly applies a health penalty in the form of a "medical condition".

      The only way that I've seen to stop it is to pursue the Body Purist FS and pass it's law, which also brings down any slaves current "chem score" just like having them on no drugs would.

      It's a huge problem I have with that specific update, since TWO facility upgrades put slaves on aphrodisiacs. The Brothel and Arcade upgrades are useless without Body Purist, and it makes Transformation Fetishism practically useless.

  91. Error when my head girl wants me to buy her daughter:

    Halim requests an interview with you. She's a devoted slave, and you grant it, and are happy you did when you see the troubled expression on her face. She explains that she had a daughter, who was sent to the slave orphanages. Today will be the daughter's 18th birthday, which means she'll go up for sale.

    "You've been so good to me, Master. I'm sure she looks like I did when you bought me. Please, Master, will you buy her like you bought me? I'm afraid she'll go to a cruel Master." She bites her lip. "And, Master, I'm sure she'd learn to loveError: <>: bad conditional expression in <> clause (#6): State.variables.recruiterSisterOlder is undefinedas much as I do. I'm sure she'd love to help me use other slaves, Master! " She blushes and waits anxiously for your decision.

      Also, unless I'm mistaken "Prominent" is the highest rank of reputation. So why do I still have no access to buying other slaveowner's stock nor access to secure rare surgery upgrades. It keeps telling me that my reputation is too low. Fix please?

  94. A mention about the random 'hormonal effects' mechanics, which to occur more or less often... or absolutely randomly... on slaves...

    And here this is my personal opinion; I find them goddamn annoying !


    Trying to make ''perfect slaves''(big everywhere, you know) become virtually impossible, for some. Random(as far as I can tell) slaves, from the very start (quite often), will get ''Hormonal effect did this or that'', reducing breasts/clit/cock/testicles left and right, slightly or a lot, without rhyme or reason. >:(

    After many tries and a lot of time, the only conclusion I can come up with his : This mechanics is stupid and serve practically no purpose other than to be a mosquito-like hindrance to game-play.

    1. Did you improved the kitchen for hormonal balance?

      Delete
    2. EDIT (to my original message) :
      I should have *precised* that, even after stopping all and any 'hormones things', the effects would STILL continue to randomly occurs... like way after stopping using the ''stuff'', even if it was used only once.

      So, if I were to try to counter-balance using, say, female hormones with... Building muscles at the same time, or just give male hormones a number of times equal to the 'female' usage, or anything that might seems logical in an attempt to fix things..? Nope. It's a bowl of spaghetti that you dropped on the floor... good luck cleaning the mess now.

      Basically, one big problem is that it seems that as soon as there's SOMETHING tipping the scale in one direction... everything fall into chaos, and it's hell to try to make things fall back in line and not degrade further in one direction or another. Way harder/annoying than it should be, really.

      -----
      Response to first comment :
      Yes.
      But, the game says : ''(...) its nutritional systems work with each slave's hormonal balancing to maximize effects.''

      I would think that it 'help' with hormonal *balancing*, not make it worst ? Unless it does the opposite, in which case the description might need to be clarified.

      Delete
    3. Well... I can't tell if this is necessarily your problem, but hormones DO 'tilt' based on the slave's natural gender. Slaves that still have their balls tilt the scale back towards male, while naturally female slaves that still have their ovaries tilt the scale towards female. Meaning that you get the hormonal effects. The only way that I can see to balance them out, is to give non-gelded slaves constant female hormones (not the intensive versions though) and give female slaves that still have ovaries constant male hormones (again, not the intensive version). I hope this helps, I found it out by looking through the Twine coding.

  95. A couple of bugs I ran into:

    When you talk to your slaves (I only talked to accepting or better), no matter how old they are, they call themselves an old bitch.

    The head girl is ignoring the rules assistant setting for no implants.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I opened up the game in Twine and found a typo/bug.

    In "Economics" when you hit the part where it talks about the laws that you've passed, it has "$FSSupremacistRace subhumans form a majority of the slaves."
    ...It's talking about the Subjugationist Law.

    I figured I would point this out instead of being silent like I was for the previous update's bugs, because silence doesn't help you fix them.
    I just hope that you don't mind that I've been using your game to help me learn the basics of coding.

    1. I had an entire report of the bugs I've found, one that took me a long time to type out, and my dog made me erase it. ...I feel so depressed right now.
      Gonna re-type them from memory.

      In "SA clothes", it calls for devotion OR a humiliation fetish at the beginning. It's supposed to call for devotion AND a humiliation fetish, if the other calls in that specific part are anything to go by.

      "SA please you" calls for the behavioral quirks "Adores Women" and "Romantic" at the very end. They're sexual quirks, so I think this is a copy-paste error.

      Multiple slave recruiter events call for "$recruiterSisterOlder.fetish", this is a copy-paste error, methinks. (The specific ones are: "RE sisterYoung recruiter" and "RE mother recruiter"). There's also an error where the slaves from ALL of these events get the originals relationships, as well as their age implants.

      "REM GRI upgrade" calls for "$studentsBoughtSCP".

      "Random Individual Event" "RE cooler lockin" is triggering for smart slaves due to it calling for "$eventSlave.intelligence lte 1" instead of "$eventSlave.intelligence lte -1".

      And for balance suggestions, I really wish you would exempt Brothel and Arcade aphrodisiacs from the "chem score". It makes buying the two main upgrades for those facilites useless without the Body Purist law, and it makes Body Purist almost required in order to play normally.

      PERSONAL suggestion: Now that the Kimono and Harem Gauze are attached to Future Societies, I've lost the only two outfits that I have a definitive fetish for. So I would LOVE to have another outfit in the same vein of thought, an outfit that would suit a "kept woman" or a "queen". I don't really care WHAT it is, I just REALLY don't want it to be over-the-top sexual with outdated hairstyles like the Slave Gown. I like the idea of covering up my Concubine and treating her like a real queen, considering that she's basically my 'wife' in everything but name.

  97. I think there is a small bug in the Rules Assistant. There are certain piercings I do not like, so I set them to None in the rules. When I apply then check the Body Mod studio, slaves that had those piercings still do. I can still remove them manually, so this is a very minor issue.

    2. Wait ? Really ? That doesn't make sense.

      If the 'Rule options' at least had 'Allow for non-devoted' and 'Allow for devoted' rules for Body Modifications, it wouldn't be so bad... But I don't why there's a block there ?
      I thought the very purpose of the 'Rule assistant' was to *impose* things, rules, on your slaves... not politely ask them if they may or may not kindly comply...

    3. It would be nice if he gave us an option to turn body mod rules 'on' and 'off' for non-devoted slaves. I actually enjoy the fact that rebellious slaves keep their piercings, it adds character in my mind. I can see how everyone else wouldn't like it, so that's why I think it would be nice to make it an option.
