ALPHA 0.8.9: Foreign Investment


I've been dissatisfied with how easy it's been to change slaves' sexual orientations for a while now, and this update makes it much slower and less random. Sexuality changes now join interest rates as being lower, but still well short of realism. This is still a game, after all. My slowly improving code skills also made it possible to offer more potential changes to sexuality during a single week without slowing things down, mostly because the original code was atrocious.


This update takes another step towards takeovers of other arcologies by allowing the player to purchase partial ownership of any arcology. It's not possible to purchase a controlling interest, and the system is extremely easy to abuse for quick profit; both of these are temporary code limitations that I intend to address as soon as possible. Interestingly, since it's currently impossible to buy enough of an arcology to take it over, buying shares in a neighboring arcology can actually protect that arcology against changes of government, since it reduces the margin other minority actors have to try for majority control.

  1. As an idea for future updates. One of the things I'd like to see is being able to adjust the FS of puppet a arcologies so that you can turn them into a source of specific slave types

  3. Sometimes I wish there would be a lesbian future society option, even though I understand why there isnt any, as acording to the lore, that would be probably only possible through sheer power as most people in power are males in the strict sense. Plus the game is written that way and thats okay. Still always weird as a female PC to take the radical option which always puts the focus on the penis...or one picks religious and goes finishes that, so reputation does not decay.

    But I really love this game so much, when this first started I never thought that I was ever going to like it. I was always impressed, but it never was the content I want. But then around sometime in march I checked back on it and was I found was just amazing. And the way these updates just keep on rolling. This is just impressive and probably one of my favorites things I look forward to.

    You are amazing and the people who help you with their mods and bugfixes are just as amazing. Keep it up.

    1. I too often wish for some sort of lesbian future society option. Don't care so much about the mechanical effects, I just want some (in-game) acknowledgement that I'm /mistress/, not master, and this is ok.

      Delete
    2. Such a future society option (and the obvious counterpart, a mandatory female enslavement society) are definitely possible, it's just that they'd require a lot of coding. Right now the game assumes citizens, customers etc. will be of both genders, so every instance there would have to be changed. So put that down as a "maybe someday," sooner if someone decides to contribute there.

      Delete
    3. Did not even consider the coding mess it would be and how much stuff has to be rewritten. Something like the orgasmic marriage ceremony would not work in such an enviroment. And thats just the beginning, yeah it would be a nightmare for most events. So I will understand that it will never be in the end. Hell, when that game started there was suppose to be no female PC option so I am already more than happy with what the game has become.

      I personally did not even see it as a "All male slavary" / "All female slavary" thing(even if those FCs sound rather fun), I thought it more in a Gender Radicalism/Fundamentalism kinda way, as the Radicalism pushes Transgender/Futanari and the Fundamentalism pushes male control and females as breeders. There is not a simple "Women as Women in control and enjoying women". But as I stated I would not even know what the mechanical effects would be. A matriarchy in which women are in charge and only males who prove themselves are allowed to stay in relative power, but cleary in check...for the slaves with a penis they probably would all have to be gelded except if they are in a dairy or arcade? Then again gelding is also already a big part of fundamentalism so I am way to bad to figure it out. Sorry for that ramble.

      But you could trigger EVERYONE by just naming that society something with like "Feminist Ideal". Real hardcore feminists(the core audience of this game) would scream that this isnt what feminism is and a very certain male audience would simply explode that the word "Feminist" is used in a video game. So it would be great fun all around.

      Delete
    4. Looking at this instead of feminist ideal you could go with something along the lines of ancient greece amazonian revivalism that would directly oppose roman revivalism, it would work well with fitness enthusiasm and possibly a couple others.

  5. I'd like to repeat my request for the abbreviated sidebar to properly display capacity in all facilities, instead of just the Brothel, Club, and Dairy.

    MINOR NEW GAME PLUS BUG: The UI for importing slaves from NGP incorrectly reports all slaves orientation as XY--- XX---. They import correctly, only this display is inaccurate.

  6. BUG: During new slave creation at the start of the game, it's possible to decrease attraction for both XY and XX so far that the Increase button disappears.

    BUG: During new slave creation at the start of the game, some orientation statuses, such as indifferent, take multiple clicks to get through. It appears that there may actually be three different levels of indifference, but this screen is not making which one is currently chosen apparent.

    BUG: During new slave creation, if the slave is given anal skill and then is set to be an anal virgin, they retain the skill.

  7. Is making a slave pregnant, then removing their vagina so they are stuck with a neverending pregnancy taken into account in the code yet? Something to prevent it from happening, or maybe health concerns until a c-sec is done?

    1. Only hotfixes are save-compatible by default, unless indicated otherwise, so no.
      Also it says right next to the download >Saves from previous versions are incompatible

      No, he won't, because that would limit the development of the game. Too many things you can't do because of compability limitations.

    2. Yes, I know it says that they aren`t compatible over new updates. It`s just it is getting slightly annoying having to start from scratch every time. I do understand, however, that he has other priorities right now. Thank you for answering my question, sir. I`d like to wish you a good day, as I have no other questions.

      Delete
    3. You can of course always try to play with an old save, but more likely than not it will bug out to the point of being unplayable. Unfortunately, your best chance to carry over progress is to use NG+ or the cheat menu. Maybe he'll update NG+ to allow more than 5 slaves and carry over *some* arcology stats, any more than that is just not worth the effort going along with it.

      Delete
    4. You can try going to Options, and click on 'Backwards Comparability", though I at the moment have no clue if it will work with this version.

    7. Yes I do. Keep in mind, however, that it's only one item on a list of hundreds of things I'd like to add.

      And to add to the responses you've already gotten regarding save compatibility, your options are indeed limited to restarting, restarting with up to five of your best girls, or finishing out your game on the old version. I've left almost all of the old versions up on both Mega and Dropbox for this exact reason.

  19. "Yes Master," she says automatically, and then pauses. "Hmm. I try not to think about back, you know, before." She squeezes her buttocks against your crotch. "But I guess back then I didn't really think about my butthole, much? Like, I went to the bathroom, and washed it in the shower, and that was it. But with the liquid slave food, I don't - sorry, Master, I'm being silly. You know all about that." You tell her to explain it anyway. She looks puzzled for a moment, but remembers she can trust you, and twists around to plant an awkward kiss on your chin before continuing. "Well," she says, with mock seriousness. "Here in the arcology, we slaves eat a very special liquid diet that keeps us healthy and fit and ready to fuck. And, it's absorbed completely, so our butts are always nice and clean. That way, our Masters can -" she clenches her sphincter around the base of your cock - "fuck our asses" - clench - "whenever" - clench - "they" - clench - "want!"

  21. Slave prices during initial customization have not been rebalanced for the sexual orientation update. The price of slaves with even a passing interest in either men or women is now PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE. I'm going to assume this is unintended, since asexual sex slaves are not very useful.

    She is lead to the auto-surgeon, since she is likely to face complications with childbirth. She is stripped from her clothes and set up on the operating table. She is quickly sedated, and subjected to a c-section in order to avoid potential problems. The surgery is quick, and she is moved to a bed to recover. When she awakes, her child has already been taking away. Error: << if >>: << else >> must be the final clause


    Error: child tag << / if >> was found outside of a call to its parent macro << if >>"

    And then the 'pregnancy status' will not update Example: I have slave that is on week 41, even though she started ( every week) giving birth on week 35.

  36. TYPO / BUG - in "PE pit fight", when the opponent is described as "an average looking slave, so frightened there's urine running down her leg", the next sentence should read "She must have annoyed [HER MASTER] to earn this."

    However, if the player chose a custom title for devoted slaves to use instead of Master/Mistress, the sentence will read "She must have annoyed [CUSTOM TITLE] to earn this." This makes no sense, as the pit fight event is supposed to be against a different master's slave.

    My guess is whoever made a pass to modify master/mistress references into flexible ones replaced this instance by mistake.

  37. I brought this up before, but it bears repeating that the prices of new slaves during initial customization have STILL not been rebalanced to account for sexual orientation since the latest hotfix. New slaves with identical stats and sexual orientation as those created on older versions, are now more expensive. I'm not whining about a mere 500 credits either. I've seen the prices of slaves with mild attraction to one gender and indifference to the other increase by up to 5000 credits!

    This is unacceptable.

    We should not have to reduce the sexual interests of our starter slaves to the point that they utterly despise both genders just to afford them. Rebalance this, please!

    Thank you for your time.

  43. Dear FC Author (& collaborators), It would be really nice if you could move "Universal Rules" out of the Options menu. It's confusing for new players, specially when "[Restrain/Encourage] slave on slave molestation" is a decision that has a direct impact on slave devotion and trust gains.

  44. Fighting report is incomplete when the killing slave is equipped with highly advanced limbs. It just cuts off at the 2nd to last paragraph, the final one displays normally however

    >Upon your word the two combatants approach each other. Sheba does not carry a sword, raising only her hands, but these are terrifying, modern weapons themselves. Wisfavour tries a probing sweep, but Sheba catches her blade in one hand, slides it down to the hilt with a shriek of metal on metal, and snaps the blade cleanly. Wisfavour watches this, dumbstruck, before regaining composure and taking a fighting stance again. Sheba manages to touch her opponent's bare skin with her own cybernetics, incapacitating Wisfavour with an electric shock. While Wisfavour is temporarily stunned, Sheba strikes Wisfavour on the head with deadly force, crushing her opponent's skull. Though the fight was short,

  45. I'm not sure if this is intentional but on v8.9.2 whenever I edit a slaves values using the "cheat edit slave" option it glitches their gender preferences. It says, 'they find both men's and women's intimate areas quite repulsive...' Even if I go back in and change the values to loves them it still says that on those slaves summery. Is this a glitch or intended to be negative reinforcement for using the option?

    1. It is because those values haven't been updated to the new system. So the 2 setting that used to be max is now low, to get it to work you need to enter a manual value. Setting it to 100 should be equivalent to the old max based on my testing.

  46. Not entirely sure how the rules work. Say for example that I want disobedient slaves in the Penthouse to abide by one ruleset and all slaves in the Brothel by another. How the heck do I do that? I've set up the Brothel ruleset so it works properly, but I don't know how to apply the other ruleset without having it apply to all facilities (since there's no option to specify the Penthouse).

  47. I would guess this is the childbirth error about which everyone talks ?

    Error: child tag <> was found outside of a call to its parent macro <> Feeling childbirth approaching, Ha makes her way to her prepared birthing area.
    She is lead to the auto-surgeon, since she is likely to face complications with childbirth. She is stripped from her clothes and set up on the operating table. She is quickly sedated, and subjected to a c-section in order to avoid potential problems. The surgery is quick, and she is moved to a bed to recover. When she awakes, her child has already been taking away. Error: <>: <> must be the final clause

  49. I got an idea from the latest changes you made to the time it takes slaves sexual orientation to change. Since it is so slow to do know, even with smart piercings, I would suggest a new facility that could be used to alter slaves psychologically. Imagine slaves strapped to a chair with her view nothing but screens showing things to change them 24/7 with a headset on. Think clockwork orange style. It wold be expensive, and cause intelligence to decrease, but could be a really neat facility.

  50. Having a problem over the last several updates where a new game started (in Google Chrome) from a freshly downloaded version update will save and load correctly until the browser shuts down. After that, however, there are still the same save time/date stamps and same number of save games in the load menu, but loading games inserts random game data and altered state of progress. The game load appears to have the correct number of slaves, but all slaves load with completely different names and properties drawn from game-generated slave data. Custom-named slaves now have name-table random names and random physical attributes. Player data is also altered, including major reductions to esteem and hits to reputation decay, while other things remain the same such as planning to spend the week devoting attention to a specific slave, even though the slave now has a different name.

  53. TYPO - old slave "RESS" event, "put the old whore in her place" choice used to ask the slave to "go out and make you 200", but the amount is currently being listed as "?00" instead.

    Cash is being properly allocated, though, as overall value properly goes up by 200.

  54. BUG - please check the remote surgery's shoulder effects for a possible overflow issue.

    Restructured a slave's shoulders to narrow them and she somehow ended up with massive shoulders instead. Didn't notice it right away. Now:

    Surgery says "Her shoulders been restructured to narrow them. Advanced shoulder narrowing surgery"

    Slave description says "Her shoulders and chest are very broad, making her boobs look a lot smaller than they actually are."

    Performing the surgery again doesn't change either one.

    Might be connected to the slave being originally male? The female slaves I've put through the same procedure all properly stopped at very narrow shoulders, and surgery is showing only a "broaden" option for them, as it should.

  61. The starting slave creation screen claims, "Slaves created here will be much cheaper than if they were purchased on the market."

    That claim used to be true prior to the introduction of arcology location and their effect on the initial slave market. Used to be the slave market is initialized at 1. So if the starting slave creation screen has the $slaveCostFactor set at 0.9, that is indeed 10% cheaper. But now, the Urban location has the $slaveCostFactor set at 0.7. During the game, it is also possible for the slave market to have a cost factor of less than 0.9. This means that in many cases slaves created in the starting screen is actually more expensive than an identical one bought in the market.

    Suggestion: set the initial slave cost factor to 0.5. This makes the claim that slaves created in the starting section is much cheaper compared to slaves bought in the market true and it also mitigates the increased price due to the change in the way attrXX and attrXY work. Since starting money is limited this will also help newer players who may not know how to min-max the game yet.

    ALSO SUGGESTED: don't bother making buying/selling menial slaves change the cost factor. You're just creating an exploit without adding much to the game.

  68. Dear FCdev,
    There are some simple features that are missing in the custom slave creation at the beginning of the game.

    I don't know how to code twine at all but I managed to code something :

    1) Resetting the age to the first week (would be nice to be able to chose the week also):
    I added the feature in 'more customization options' (line 89563):
    <<nobr>>
    ''Number of week since last birthday:'' $activeSlave.birthWeek.
    [[Set to zero|More customization options][$activeSlave.birthWeek to "0"]]
    <</nobr>>

    2) Changing the skin colour without having to go thought multiple random new slaves
    (I don't know how to do it, would be nice to find it in 'more customization options')

    3)The missing partially inverted nipples choice (exist already on random new slaves though)
    I added this with the other options (line 75884)
    <<click "Partially inverted">><<set $activeSlave.nipples = "partially inverted">><<replace "#nipples">>$activeSlave.nipples<</replace>><<replace "#finalize">>[[Update slave|Starting Girls]]<br><br><br><</replace>><<StartingGirlsCost>><</click>> |

    Thank you for adding it in the future release (or simply explain to me why it shouldn't be added to the code) !

  70. So, I came upon a bug on the latest hotfix.

    Start new game, create an emaciated slave (with at least DD cups), have her diet on fattening in the first week => She suddenly has 25000 CC Breasts, which immobilize her.

    I think that MAYBE DD-cups are too much for her emaciated body and when her breasts grow thanks to fattening, the game sets them to maximum possible size ? It also seems to only be during the first week and I have the one time upgraded Kitchen as well.
    If I set her diet to build msucle in the first week and after that to fattening, everything seems to work just fine.

  72. Can't attach prosthetic to a slave at all, even the basic ones. When I click attach in the remote surgeon this is what shows "As the remote surgery's long recovery cycle completes, Flora is carried out of the surgery room. ERROR bad/missing surgery descript Surgtyp: 0 Devotion: 23"

    Also, about half of the slaves I start with consistently start with max breast size, when I'm certain some of them (such as my bodyguard I created who barely has any) have less than 500cc boobs. Odd to say the least.

    In addition, it seems the RA is ignoring specific slaves, even when they are not exempt. I've been able to get around this by exempting them, setting the rules manually for a week or two, then including once more.

    For some reason, if I set the health rule to automatically move slaves under +2 hp to my clinic, it fills my clinic with all my slaves regardless of their specific health level. Even ones in the spa, master bedroom, head girls suite, etc. I've taken to just watching them more. No big deal, just annoying slightly.

    1. 0.8.9 reworked sexuality.
      It now works in a much higher range, say, from 0 to 100, where before it was more like from 0 to 5.
      Basically means all slaves you had would end up with "Disgusted by anything" sexuality and changing their sexuality takes much longer.
      New slaves even on a "ported" save will have varied sexuality, but all your pre-0.8.9 will need training.
