ALPHA 0.9.3: Sales Strategy


My original plans for this update were derailed by an excellent player suggestion that I realized could be fulfilled while simultaneously giving the much neglected corporation some attention. The corporation now has its own slave market, which starts out offering very generic slaves but can be customized through a series of decisions unlocked by developing the corporation itself. All arcologies in the Free City will give the corporation bonus profits if the slaves it offers appeal to the arcology's society model. It's very lucrative to spread Asset Expansionism from arcology to arcology while creating a corporation that specializes in big breasted slaves, for example, and doing so helps spread Asset Expansionism even faster.

Download: DropboxMegaSaves from previous versions are incompatible, but 
0.6+ saves are eligible for New Game Plus. Latest hotfix is 0.9.3.1 (1900 PST December 28), save compatible.

0.9.3.1 changelog
  • Addressed a long-standing bug that would suppress the Self Hating paraphilia if slave summaries were unabbreviated.
  • Removed the requirement that slaves speak a language fluently in order to learn it in class. 
  • Corrected the cutoff values for hormonally induced Devotion and Trust changes.
  • Remote Surgery breast shape error message addressed.
  • Several corporate market error messages addressed.
  • Restored erroneously omitted Encyclopedia updates.
  • Fixed minor descriptive issues.

0.9.3 changelog


Corporate slave training
  • Creating a corporation unlocks a new slave market, featuring slaves captured and trained by the corporation.
  • As a major shareholder the PC can purchase these slaves at a discount, which increases with ownership share.
  • Provided 18 corporate decisions that affect the slaves offered, unlocked by owning certain amounts of the appropriate corporate asset type.
  • Each future society in each arcology will provide the corporation with bonus profit if the corporation's slaves are demanded by that society model.
  • Society models provided with appropriate slaves by the corporation receive societal advancement.
Other updates
  • Descriptive refinements and code refurbishment, by Anon.
  • Added sexual energy decay at low devotion, calibrated so that most new slaves with healthy sexualities will see an initial decline as they adjust to slave life.
  • Sexual energy decay at low devotion is reduced for slaves performing nonsexual jobs, encouraging extended training prior assignment to sex work if high energy is desired.
  • Removed the breast size requirements for breast shape to affect beauty.
  • Slightly reworked breast shape surgeries and added RA support for performing them as cosmetic surgeries.
  • New random individual event for slaves with torpedo-shaped tits.
  • Degradationism now reverses the impact of intelligence on attractiveness, making stupidity very attractive when perfected.
  • Provided a Gender Fundamentalist policy that increases the attractiveness of stupid slaves.
  • Slave school subsidy policies can no longer be enacted when school prosperity is already maximized.
  • Reduced the impact of devotion on milk production; hatred was previously capable of making cows completely dry.
  • Encyclopedia updates.
  • Bugfixes.

  2. >degradationism improves with every update

    oh lawd, FCdev for president 2kforever. Some more suggestions: I would like to see greater bonuses for perfectly beautiful natural slaves, especially slaves in a body purist FS, as they are exceedingly hard to get by searching the markets, whereas perfect girls can be stamped out like cheap toys once the surgery is upgraded

    I would like to see intelligence moved to the 0-100 system, where education can be used to improve it along a logistical curve with a hidden maximum.

    I also want to be able to set specific values as targets for the RA growth hormones.

    1. You can still move slave faces up one level through surgery without any kind of penalty. You can also do this with drugs but it doesn't have a limit afaik, I don't use drugs much since it gives slaves the sick penalty all the time.

      As for Intelligence, the new weight system is hard and grindy enough, why make this even more difficult?

    2. Hormones are not effective at advancing beauty, only softening ugliness. I've never had a girl go from pretty to beautiful with only hormones.
      >weigh is a grind
      what are you talking about? set the desired thiccness in the RA and it handles itself. It's probably the easiest attribute to control

    3. I don't use RA, I think it's annoying and I just manually control all my slaves. I just don't like how damn long it takes to lose weight I guess. I mean yes, it's realistic, but I'm tryina make some sick dosh off my brothel niggaaaaa.

  4. Slight issue with new game plus...

    It brings over rules assistant settings, which is good. However, it could use a sanity check. I had a rule that sends Hateful slaves to the Cellblock. I started NG+ and forgot about that rule until I got a Hateful slave from an event which seemingly disappeared; the RA had sent her to the nonexistent cellblock. Thankfully, it was as easy as building the cellblock and there she was, but for the players who may not be able to realize what is going on, may I'd like to suggest the RA do a sanity check and make sure the facility is built before sending a slave to it. If it isn't, act as if "None" was specified.

  5. So idea. Since we now have a variety of prosthetics what about a alternative to the crawling slaves that have been heeled, quadrapedal prosthetics. Surely having your cows actually walk on all fours is better than making them crawl...

  6. Can anal chastity be moved to the anal accessories field? Having them under vaginal accessories doesn't make a lot of sense from an RA perspective as the RA prioritizes vaginal chastity rules and won't apply a combined chastity belt to dual virgin slaves

  9. i dont know if it has been implemented yet, but just in case it would be good if the branch of the slave school we choose to open in our free city would also help develop our future society,for example opening a branch of the gymnasium would improve the acceptance of physical idealism and/or body purism and such

    1.

      Also, it's less of an issue as they aren't pining for other men, but is there some way that we can keep breast obsessives happy in the master suite? All it would take are some drugs.

  30. BUG - My current playthrough has a partially glitched slave.

    She was generated with a big accent (Acc--, "speaks little English, but understands enough to be given orders") in the Daughters of Liberty event. Putting her on accent elimination has done nothing. The main screen does not list her speech rules - there's LifeStyle, Relationship, and nothing in between. Her lips are normal, so it doesn't appear related to being unable to speak due to new lip stats. She's also already educated.

    Do you want me to upload her, or a save file?

  33. Quick question. Is it supposed to take a long time for girls to move up from disliking men/women to liking them? Even with once they reach nympho status and smart pericings it takes forever for them to become interested and months to reach Omnisexual. If this is by design then that's fine, but it seems weird when it takes no where near that long to get a fetish maxed out or to turn an ice queen to a nymphomaniac, which makes me think it may be an oversight of some kind.

  34. Hey, Author, you seem genuinely confused on answering the Futa question. Here's how it works.

    Female bodies have muscle proportioned differently than males. Females have an extra layer of fat to keep certain parts warmer. This makes females "plumper" than males. Futa characters tend to have plumper cocks because they don't have male cocks, they have female cocks. This makes their cocks look soft even when they're hard. Artists like Fanatic Fetish tend to prefer this variety, which Bosshi/AskRay and Uno Makoto perfer to change it up as the situation demands.

    A cock on a female must be grown from female genetic material, not male. They're typically called onna-chimpo, or female cocks. There are also Kuri-chimpo, or enlarged clits. Most people perceive this as a male physical characteristic, so it might make them look male or feel male, but it doesn't make them male. Just as a vagina on a male would make them seem or feel female but not be female; that would be a male vagina, not to be confused with otoko-manko which is typically just their butt.

    Futa don't require balls because the female cock generates its own sperm, whereas the Male cock does not. When a female has a male cock, it's typically meatier and the balls are plumper.

    Male vaginas would require all kinds of other physical alterations to make them functional, especially in the abdomin where the womb would be - without extra muscle and fat, the womb would be vulnerable and possibly unworkable. If you're not going to model that correctly, why concern yourself with balls and sperm pockets? In the end, your rules are whatever you want them to be.

    There are only two solutions to model this correctly. Create male and female versions of each part and sprout them based on which version is being sprouted. Or, introduce a Z (herm) genetic type and modify the genetics to automatically select specific physical changes should they occur.

    Anyway, I think you're being a little over-accurate concerning balls but completely under-accurate with other issues. Just make up a rule that works and stick to it.

    By the way, balls on women don't work because they get in the way of the woman part and make them look more like a trans, which isn't a woman. Bone structure, muscle + fat distribution, voice, face, offspring, etc. all matter when it comes to attraction - wrong hormones and pheromones make for little attractiveness.

    1. This bug is caused by FC Author (or someone) deciding to downgrade the Sugarcube version from Sugarcube 2.11.0 in Free Cities alpha 0.9.0.1 to Sugarcube 2.7.2 in Free Cities alpha 0.9.2. In Sugarcube 2.7.2 the link macro has not been implemented, and thus the code doesn't know what it does. For a temporary fix, if you feel like editing it yourself, change the link to click and /link to /click in the recruiter code. For a true fix FC Author must re-upgrade the Sugarcube version he uses to at least 2.8.0 or higher.

  36. Devoted/terrified slaves are still a little gimped because their kinkiness is constantly reduced. You could justify kinkiness increasing as the slave throws herself into one of the few things she actually enjoys, but just preventing the dekinkification would be helpful.

    Allowing multiple conditions on RA rules (i.e. high devotion, low trust) would also make them easier to deal with, and would solve the issue of conflicting rulesets (like if a slave has rules which set living standards to normal and luxurious, they'll take up a penthouse room and also a luxury room when the week is calculated. I think).

    Also, since the use of the Arcade/Industrial Dairy causes slaves to become more fearful, consider adding a way to (partially?) suppress that effect. Though the penalty's already eliminated if they're trusting, so shrug.

  39. BIG BUG (+ small issues) in the "dom passionately fucking sub" event, with the "not done yet / rinse off with them" choices.

    First of all, neither choice noted it would take virginity.

    Second, the sub lost vaginal virginity in both choices, but the event never referred to the slave's pussy specifically.

    Third, and most important - the dom slave OVERWROTE another slave in the week following the event. The new slave was a complete duplicate, including relationship status to the sub and the organ implantation that was completed for her that week.

  40. A silly little thing, but... is there a chance we can have "how to play" thing open in another tab or something along the lines?

    This is a first time in... well... ever... but I had a slight issue with it - I started a game, added a slave, and on a screen that offers you to add more slaves or continue to arcology I decided to quickly check a few things in "how to play". When I hit back - the game subtracted the last slave's cost once more (but didn't add a clone of this slave or anything).

    I mean, this is an absolutely tiny complaint, since this situation will hardly ever happen again, but still made me worry about when I should or should not check that section while in game.

  41. Okay I've got one, and it has nothing to do with servant prices and sexual orientation this time.

    Here's the event that is giving me trouble:

    " [Lactating slave with breast fetish] is on lunch duty today. That means that as you eat your working lunch, she sits on the edge of your desk right next to you, so that her nipples are conveniently at mouth height. Whenever you feel thirsty, you lean over and take some of her creamy, slightly vanilla-toned milk straight from the source. Every time you do, she shudders convulsively, giving little mewling whimpers. Though you never touch anything but her nipples, she climaxes twice. After you finish and she leaves, you notice [slave without fetish] at the door to your office. You call her in."

    BUG: This event adds 1 vanilla sex encounter to the lactating slave in question, regardless of which outcome you choose, even ignoring the event will cause the tally to go up. Said milk cow can even become pregnant afterward. This makes absolutely NO sense. The event distinctly states that the player character touched nothing but the cow's nipples.

    Please correct this in the next patch.

  50. Hey FC Dev, thanks for continuing to build up on this fun and flexible game. I don't think there's any other title out there that allows you to tailor the experience to what you as a player want nearly as much.

    I'd like to propose what is hopefully a simple feature.

    On the child birth screen, I would like to see a few options that let you spend some money and get some trust/devotion with the mother by sending the baby to a more privileged prep school. Maybe also some prestige gain if you have Paternalism.

    Just to be clear, the baby should still be out of the game the moment that event ends! I know some people were asking for content you object to in this area, and that's not the kind of stuff I want. I just want a way to set up the player's offspring with a fat trust fund as an RP element for a Paternalism arcology as well as another outlet for money in late game.

    Here are some specifics I was thinking:

    Default orphanage: $0, no effect (or slight negative if Paternalism)
    Fluff: as current - orphanage, then sold as slaves

    Indenture prep school: $10000, + dev/trust (++ with Paternalism)
    Fluff: graduates become restricted indentured servants for 10 years, after which they are free citizens

    Citizen school: $20000, ++ dev/trust (+++ with Paternalism)
    Fluff: graduates become poor free citizens with very basic job skills, likely to struggle

    Advanced citizen school: $40000, +++ dev/trust (++++ with Paternalism)
    Fluff: graduates are given extended advanced training and become highly skilled professionals, likely to have a comfortable life as free citizens

    Elite citizen school: $200000, ++++ dev/trust (+++++ with Paternalism)
    Fluff: give the best education and set up with a sizeable business / trust fund

    Arcology owner academy: $500000, +++++ dev/trust (++++++ with Paternalism)
    Fluff: graduates are carefully groomed and trained and are given a starter arcology of their own upon graduation

    1. Some of the options in the middle might be redundant. Ideally, it'd be good to have the option to:

      a. Do nothing, like now, ensuring slavery for the offspring
      b. Set them up as a free citizen for $$
      c. Set them up as an absurdly rich free citizen for $$$$$$

      Thanks for considering this idea.

      Delete
    2. Though it wouldn't be ideal, maybe the simplest way to implement it would be like the C-section policy you already have in place. It costs money for each birth, has some effect on the mother for each birth, and you have to enact it. It'd take away the decision based on an individual slave and whether the child is yours or not, but it'd keep the development easier, hopefully.

    I was wondering if you could add a feature where we could rename an individual slave rather than all of them? I don't know if there is a function like that aside from the one option when choosing a society and being able to rename all of the slaves with e.g. Paternalism names.

    I ask because I started with a mindbroken slave called fleshlight and now that she's fixed her mind, I'd rather like to change it. But I don't want to change all of my slaves' names because I will lose track of who's who.

    Ideally it would be nice to have it in the slave's personal menu (where you set her diet, clothes, etc).

    This would also help when playing in an area where I get loads of slaves with the same name. For example, I played in Australia for the first time in version 8.12.5. I ended up with around 30 slaves and many on them sharing the same names! 5 Charlottes, 4 Isabelles, 3 Isabellas, 5 Avas, etc. I don't know if you've been adding names to Australian slaves since version 8.12.5 or if you haven't, then that's an issue that needs to get addressed. I won't be choosing Australia till I hear about some more names being added.

    Also, how long does it take for a slave to get a nickname? I found that it took several weeks of breaking the slave, training her and finally getting a nickname but more often than not, I end up having to move the slave to a facility without her ever getting a nickname.

    1. To give an individual slave's name. On the slave's profile page, at the end of the description but before the 'Rules Assistant'. There will be a link 'Customize' click it. You will now be at a page where you can customize her name, her tattoo, and more.

  53. Think we could get an upgrade path for the arcade (or whole other facility maybe) that's like an actual Gloryhole or something? A facility that is slightly less rapey and maybe has less mindbreak potential but still has that appeal of cheap, anonymous sex.

    1. You could also weight it around entertainment or intelligence, perhaps like a midway through prostitution or public service and have slaves of the dominant racial group not get a penalty from it if you run a racial supremacist future society mayb

  54. Going full racial supremacy for Black still breaks recruitment events. You'll still get flagged for the event, but there's no text, just blank and the continue button.

  55. I'm a bit confused on how the corporation is supposed to work. I don't understand what numbers I'm supposed to increase to make it more profitable.

    Am I supposed to buy all the categories low and sell them high? Am I supposed to just keep buying up all the categories as much as possible? Am I supposed to buy recruitment and improvement, but sell off slaves? Do dividends pay off based on the amount of assets, or the amount of cash, or only when I sell stuff?

    And what affects the share price? It always seems to just go up. Is there any way to make it go down so I can afford to buy more shares?

    1. Don't worry about making it profitable. Just buy assets when the price is very low or low. If the corporation has little money or you don't have anything good to buy, maybe sell something that's priced very high. The more total assets the corporation has, the more profitable the corporation is.

      I'm not sure how profit is calculated, but I think it's a combination of total assets and a random factor. You then get a percentage equal to the percentage of your shares. So if you own 50% of the shares, and the corporation makes 10000, you will get half.

      Share price is based mainly on the total asset of the corporation. This does mean that as you make the corporation more valuable, the share price will tend to increase. There is a random factor every week though. If you don't have enough money just don't do anything and wait for next week. If you want to make it go down you need to make the corporation lose money, but why would you want to do that?

  56. I was curious as to whether you would consider a Societal Option for Pregnancy and chubby/fat slaves (IE gives a bonus type deal like the slimness ones for instance).

    1. Gender Fundamentalism is kind of already that.

    2. Sorta? It's more "women are slaves, these are things that women do/look like".

      Arethiel seems to be asking for something like;

      Maeusiophilia is a future society model that fanatically approves of pregnancy and fertility and disapproves of slaves who are unable to reproduce. Combined with Gender Fundamentalism, the slave value of pregnant and fertile slaves is increased, and slaves with dicks no longer have a penalty if they retain testicles. It can be developed to increase the effectiveness of fertility drugs and to provide a steady increase in devotion to slaves who are allowed to reproduce - including slaves with dicks and balls who impregnate other slaves.

  57. Still having extreme problems with corrupted money/rep levels. It gets to where it happens every week and so I never have money for anything when events pop.

    Also having problems with rules still. I cannot apply a rule just to specific slaves. (Different rules for lurchers/bodyguards from everyone else) Rules never apply properly if I pick specific slaves to apply them to.

    1. In some cases the corrupted money/rep levels are due to outdated/incompatible browsers. In some other cases it's because a variable had an incorrect input type (e.g., something tries to add a character instead of a number to money). It's doubtful that it's the second type, since if that's the case we'll get a lot of bug report. So try instead switching to another browser. I recommend an up-to-date Chrome.

  58. Two things:
    1) There is a problem with the Corporate Market when buying slave. Sometimes when clicking into it or going through the slaves, the screen will go black with no text. Happens frequently, pressing Space will go back to slave market menu and may or may not fix the issue.
    2) If you heeled a slave and then proceed to have the slave become a quad amputee, they will still have the heeled line in their description.

    1. Can you tell us what your FS and Slave Market Rules at the time?

      Delete
  59. Yeah that Corporate market was pretty much useless for me, despite the amount of money I put into shaping it to giving me my ideal slaves and that for it to have a high such of not even allowing me to see the text. I pretty much just stayed with my default choice of the Slave School as the more specific Slave Markets change their slaves to fit what your arcologies current culture and policies have in place. So in a sense the Slave School normally just has generic random slaves with average Devotion and Trust. However, if they are the school you chose to invite into your arcology and upgraded their Training while going through the route where you choice either Young or Mature Slaves and Took care of that specific type. You could get girls of either type with high enough devotion and Trust that they will only require 3-6 Weeks to fully train to max.

  60. I must say one thing i have come to love about this blog is the images you have surrounding the page. I was wondering if there was any plans to add these small decorations. Perhaps to show the development of the city and how far it has to go.

  61. When u use remote surgery to make slaves taller they get wierd description:
    "The proportions of her arms and legs are odd, as though they have been artificially lengthened."
    You know that lengthening of arms and legs can be done this days? Right?

    3. It can but it's a painful procedure with a long recovery time. At least with leg lengthening what they do is break both your legs cleanly and then set up metal bracing to keep the severed bone a small but steady distance appart. Then you basically have to wait for the bones to naturally grow and close the gap as it tries to heal the break. It at most gives you a few inches and the recovery time is extended by a month or more for every extra inch you try to push it for.

      The procedure is being done over in china right now although there are reports of patients suffering psychological effects from the pain and long recovery time.

      So yeah it's a procedure that is currently doable it's just something that most sane folks shouldn't sign up for just for the sake of a cosmetic hight increase. (Medically speaking it can be used to even out legs that are uneven due to injury or illness.)

      But in the free cities setting it's conceivable that it could be done by a sadistic owner/ one callous enough to disregard the fact that it's such a painful process. Personally I'd prefer if the blurbs about it looking unnatural were removed but in turn the cost to health was increased and there was chance of it mind breaking your slave.

    4. If it's at that point now, then it easily will be widely available by the time the Free Cities pop up.
      However I believe my fellow anon was trying to say that it's not out of the experimental stage. In fact I wouldn't even consider it in that stage if what you say about it is correct. It wouldn't even be pre-alpha it was a video game.

  63. Slave Image mod NSFW 0.2
    This mod takes the slave title and their race, displays a custom image of the slave on the main page as well as on the slave interact page. For example slavegirl white black asian, MILF white black asian, pregnant MILF white black asian, all have their own images representing the slave.

    The images are rendered with 3d models with different poses and different props. If you don't like any of those images you can always replace them with your own. There are current 912 possible combinations of slave titles and races. Because of the large size with 912 images, the file are in a zip format.

    1. The mod looks for non-existent files for some pregnant slaves example : 'pregnant%20-L.png' but the closest ones are 'pregnant slavegirl-L.png' and 'pregnant slave-L.png'.

    2. Well, that is intriguing. Will take a look, thanks.

    3. I love your models, they are really good. However it seems you don't have enough variations yet, and I'd prefer maybe a way to see the slave in a normal pose and not lapping up a bowl with some cats.

    6. I was getting bored modeling them in the same poses. So I started adding in weird things like cats and stuff. This was suppose to be a learning experience for me to learn to use 3d modeling programs. So I wanted to put in different things.
