ALPHA 0.8.11: Carrot and Stick


My new content time for this update has mostly gone into new events, but I've also added a little rules feature that I've been meaning to add for more than a year now. As I do my best to make clear in the descriptions, there's a lot of life going on offscreen in a game of FC. Specifically, there are a lot of little rewards given and punishments meted out that the game doesn't show. This is a fundamental design choice; one of the irritations I had with other slave games that I wanted to keep out of FC is the reward/punish grind. So, I've added rules that allow the player to determine what the standard rewards and punishments for any given slave are. It's now possible to specify, for example, that slaves get whipped if they're bad and get sent to the Spa for some time with your sexy spa attendant if they're good. There are some interesting little tradeoffs to be discovered, and there's no perfect combination. I've tried to balance this system so that it recreates previous versions' gameplay if the rules are left on default settings, for players who feel the complexity is high enough already. This is also the kind of thing that can be added without increasing lag, since I'm less terrible at doing this kind of thing, and ongoing revision of bad code is easily outpacing additions in terms of performance.


If you're experiencing a serious bug, such as, for example, your money being replaced by $cash or slaves disappearing, the most helpful thing you can do is save your game to disk and send it to me, along with a description of what happened. If you have a save from right before the issue arose, send me that too.


Finally, I understand a Free Cities play-by-post roleplay is being organized, and they're accepting more players. I'm not involved, and questions should be directed there.

  3. Suggestion: Would it be possible to customize how a player refers to his/her slaves? Like maybe something overarching, like the player will always refer to them by X, or a random selection from defined pool X, kind of like the custom form of address you can now set for slaves to refer to you as. For example, the player could decide he wants to refer to all slaves as baby girl or princess, or something more abusive like cunt, bitch, whore, etc. Perhaps you could even set a custom address for specific slaves, like say you set your player character to refer to all his slaves as cunts, but your head girl is specifically princess, or your cows specifically as cow. Just thought it might be another interesting way to give the player some meaningful control over his/her character, and how they interact with slaves.

  8. Is there any chance of the reputation requirement for the cyberlimb factory being reduced? At least for the basic P limbs which still leave you with massive penalties to everything? I like pursuing that angle from a thematic standpoint, but ever since it was locked behind some immensely high reputation level I've been unable to attain it. I usually play as a feminine character, which makes reaching high reputation levels nearly impossible prior to week 30 or so, and it's uncommon for my games to last that long.

  10. Just had an idea for an event. How about an event where a slave tries to buy herself with money saved up from tips? Since experienced slaves are hugely expensive, this should only fire for very experienced whores.

    A related idea would be an event where a slave is revealed to have a small hoard of saved currency. Player options would be to seize the money or to permit this of devoted slaves and indentures.

    If it's arcology policy for slaves to retire as citizens, both of the above should be more likely. There are probably various shenanigans whereby a clever slave might get early access to that pricey set-aside fund.

    Oh, and given eugenics options exist in the game, I'm surprised I've never seen eugenicist slave buyers interested in unusually intelligent slaves. It seems like they should pop up in paternalist arcologies as well as those with intelligence eugenics SMR.

  11. Suggestion: Can you please add the option of no rewards. I roleplay as a degradationist so I never reward my slaves.

    Also, if it's not to much to ask could you consider some other options for punishments like: severity, frequency( only when disobedient, dor any minor transgression, regular daily punishments).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. An "Overstimulation" punishment would be nice to. Rather than no climaxes they're forced to have too many. Maybe it increases fear and sex drive in non-devoted, non-nymphos and decreases fear in nymphos. Because they're not as afraid of the punishment and may even act out upon occasion to receive it.

      Delete
    2. Sure. I'm still working on getting Worshipful/Terrified set up as a viable alternative to Worshipful/Trusting.

      Delete
    3. Another idea would be organic denial as a punishment. I mean chastity is kind of the same but it is different than getting strapped down and kept on edge for an hour or two. It would work great with rebellious girls on restrictive Masturabtion rules as they're welcome to come after their punishment to you to get what they need. Make them really feel loke sluts. Maybe Doms hate it and subs love it?

      Delete
    4. @FcAuthor: if you want to make worshipful/terrified as an alternative maybe you could consider giving degradationism a regular boost to fear. I think that's consistent with the universe.

    I cannot make a rule that only applies to specific slaves in the RA. Nothing I do will get it to apply to them at all.

    For some reason, pubic hair doesn't keep getting waxed like it should in RA rules, no idea why. I can't pin down any commonalities. I just notice it at random.

    It would be nice to have a warning if a slave has a detracting mark on their face that can be bleached away.

  20. When creating slaves at game start, the lack of refresh options impedes creation of dickgirl slaves, because the only way to refresh is to enter another menu - you first have to set penis to a size > 0, then you have to go to the 'more customizations' menu, then back out, then add testicles, then go to the customizations menu, then add the ballsack.

    In addition once you have removed an agent and put them back in it doubles all written things involving them. This includes the bottom of the diplomacy screen as well as any mentions of them in the turn end report.

  32. On the note of the hostages it feels that unless you get parentalism it is nearly impossible to get the hostage to like you when you go with the "surgeon" path, the combination of high intelligence and the "rival indoctrination" bonus seem to make it so even if you with full confinement, corset, curatives, Luxerious/Restrictive environment, and shibari robes and then you just MATCH the penalty if they are into bondage. I understand its encouraged to use "psycho suppress" but this applies a permanent negative bonus to int with very few methods to retrain it. Is there any method to mitigate the darned rival bonus or do you need to bite the psycho supress bullet >_<

  34. Just did a fresh download of 8.11.3, assigned my slaves (all 2 of them), hit continue, and the game completely fezzes up. Managed to close the window, fired it up again. Started from scratch, and again, once I assigned my slaves (3 this time) and hit continue the game locked up.

    At this point, I figured there was just something not liking Chrome, so I opened the game with Internet Explorer, and it did the same thing, only this time had the following pop up: "The webpage is not responding due to a long running script".

Also Arcology X-5 is your Arcology so I don't quite understand. Oh ya and you can't buy slaves because of the retarded price cause by the many offers.

  37. Bug regarding Indentured Servants in 0.8.11.4:

    At the slave creation at the start, I made my (future) Head Girl an Indentured Servant to decrease her price.
    When her contract expired, though, the related event that popped up used another slave in her place (who wasn't even an Indentured Servant).
    Not only that, but the game seemingly refused to let me progress past that point.
    It kept showing the same page even after I pressed continue.
    Tried removing her from the Head Girl position to see if it'll change anything.
    Same results.

    Here's the save file, if you need it:

    Silicon Valley is located to the east of your arcology. It is governed by direct democracy, making its development dangerously unstable. Its leadership has control of approximately % of the arcology. . The arcology has an estimated GSP of ¤23m, ahead of its neighbors. Its culture is complex. First, it is committed to Gender Radicalism, and is notorious for the openness with which its citizens fuck its slavegirls in the ass until they cum. It is committed to Paternalism, and is becoming known for its unusually cheerful atmosphere. It is committed to Transformation Fetishism, and is renowned as the source of some of the world's most unbelievable surgical transformations. Finally, the arcology is committed to Asset Expansionism, and is widely considered an interior design masterpiece for its adaptations to slaves with fifty kilos of tits.

    Error: cannot execute macro <<display "New Save Intro">>: Cannot read property 'slaveName' of null

    At the moment it only has happened with the "fallen into debt and sold herself" and "cow sold by her slave-owning farmer" events because they're the only ones i've gotten so far.

    1. I'm just going back to 8.10 for the rest of the week, which is a bummer. This update was a damn holocaust. Would it kill a nigga to do a playtest before putting out these new builds which seem to break everything?

      Delete
    2. I'm fairly sure they updates are usually tested otherwise you would see this more often, this is probably rushed but no one benefits from it so I really don't understand why it was rushed.

      Delete
    3. It wasn't rushed, in fact. It made a huge number of changes, and many bugs got through my playtesting.

  44. BUG: Rules Assistant shows a check of "Copy the following block of code for importing" at the top of every page.

    OVERSIGHT: Imported rules are newly created rules, and Rule 1 can't be deleted, so the player always has to manually set Rule 1 even if they have an exported ruleset.

  45. BUG: If you switch Assistant-applied implants from off to on in the RA, you have to page off of the rule before you can get to the autosurgery settings.

  46. Please have the abbreviated facility sidebar show the capacities for all facilities that have capacities.

  47. Anyone else having issues with taking over other arcologies and then receiving the following message each turn without ever getting out of the internal dissention:

    The Arbor, your neighbor to the west, is being run by your agent Paula. She does an excellent job this week. The arcology has an estimated GSP of ¤9m, undergoing a leadership struggle, since its current government owns less of it than its largest rival for control. The arcology is paralyzed by internal dissention over how to respond.

    I've waited 20 turns and the one arcology I've taken over has never come out of dissension.

  48. Frustrating effect, Rules Assistant:
    Growth hormones for healthy slaves: up to a girlish figure.

    This prompts the rules assistant to use Lip Injections to grow lips, afaik, all the way over 9000.
    Please stop it FCDev, enormous lips would not be found on a person described as girlish.

    1. Are you firing the RA after the growth target has been hit, or just once?

  49. Intense Hormonal treatment with Hormonal Enhancers is broken again.

    I have all the upgrades to hormones and I still can't get pelvic broadening and shoulder narrowing in young shemale girls, which I previously could.

    This system gets broken every 3 or 4 builds...

  50. A question for everyone, does your RA work? I honestly don't think mine does as I've been trying to get it to apply some rules to my 12 new house servants. Or is that the problem? That the RA can't handle bulk?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I had to activate it on every slave manually. It wouldn't apply any rule to a slave on the end of the week unless that slave was already under the influence of that rule. Once it listed them as having the specific rules applied to them, it would then make the changes at the end of the week if needed.

      Delete
    2. Doesn't work, at all, not in the facilities, not outside of them. The growth hormones and diet I scheduled don't work either.

      Delete
    3. I only have it work when I apply rules within the RA. Like if you go into the rules and hit "Apply rules", that works.

      Delete
    4. I do that, but it either just plain doesn't work (I even give a week to test it) or it does, but the growth hormones/diet changes don't take (usually the girls in Facilities).

      Say, which browser do you use? I use Chrome for playing Freecities, would it help if I changed to Firefox?

      Delete
    5. Yo, so it's the guy with RA problems here again. Changing browsers doesn't work either. Should I screenshot the Rules I'm trying to apply?

      Delete
  51. Keep up the great work! Thank you so much for adding a way to import and save rules for our slaves. Just one more suggestion I noticed you have a lot of great options for female hormones. I wanted to know if you could add male only slaves and I am able to turn them into a female or maybe a shemale?

    1. Interestingly if I sell the slave the bug happens to, it'll just happen to another. None of the affected slaves are actually indentured servants.

  54. Just a heads up on a 0.8.11.4 issue - the menial/fuckdoll/bio market is horrifically abuseable at this time.

    Basically, buying a huge stock leads to skyrocketing prices at the turn of the week. I can reliably bounce the bioreactor price between 500-600 and 1000-1200 each week, letting me nearly double my cash every two weeks. You can of course, get a nice head start by selling off a load of your own stock briefly. At 40 weeks in, I've already bought out two rival archologies and most of my slaves live in the spa :)

    1. Not sure if you read all comments in earlier builds but it was mentioned "few" times already :)
      Same happens with arcologies percentage (%) , you can buy 1% and sell just after buying and you will get 3000 without need to even passing a week.

    2. I'm working on this slowly. It turns out business is hard.

  55. For me when it comes to the RA, I could only make 4 rules based on devotion, and made sure there's no overlap. Then it seems to work to apply at weekends. I tried to make 9 rules based on assignments, but it wouldn't stop applying an old rule when a slave was reassigned to a new assignment/facility such as going from being a servant to a fucktoy.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Suggestion: In the RA you can set a rule for the growth hormones to establish the following figures to a group of slaves:
    •girlish
    •stacked
    •huge but functional
    •unlimited
    In the individual slave interact screens, it would be nice to be able to set what type of figure you want for that particular slave. I would like that control over individuals. I know I can give them the growth hormones until they reach the size I'm wanting, but I'd like to be able to set the maximum size for the growth hormones and walk away.

    The same idea for muscles. I'd like to be able to set the muscle level desired for an individual in the Slave Interact screen and walk away.

    Maybe I'm just lazy.

  57. I rarely do these kinda FS Choices, but there is a little thing, playing as a female PC with a female title, still being called "father" in the week report. Does not really matter, but could be improved:

    Redji serves as your Consort. Though she is still your slave, her status is scarcely below that of a citizen. She contributes to your reputation just like a Concubine, and she is conscious of the trust you place in her. Your Concubine is your Consort's mother-wife. Truly, Arcology X-8 looks up to you as children to a father.
