ALPHA 0.9.7: Minuet in Latex


As soon as I added Fuckdolls to the game, I received requests to allow the player character to create, keep, and use them. That was a long time ago, but I don't forget requests and I haven't forgotten those. Fuckdolls, for those who haven't read the in-game Encyclopedia, are a Free Cities version of the classic permanent latex bondage fetish, as it might be implemented by slaveowners in the near future with lots of resources and no morals. They're slaves who are permanently encased in thick, latex-like suits, with holes for air, food, dick, and nothing else. Any slave can now be made into a Fuckdoll. This is, of course, mean, making this one of those updates without a lot of content for players who like to gently pat their slaves on the head.

Many bugfixes have been contributed via GitHub. If you're already experienced with Git, or if you're interested in learning, it's now very easy to submit mods and fixes. Thanks to everyone who's contributed so far; if you are not credited in the game and would like to be, please email me. I do not credit contributors without express permission, for obvious reasons.

  1. First for praise dev!

    Second, a question / suggestion. Is there a way to have the player's corporation change specializations? The effect of a given choice on the slaves the corporation sells isn't always immediately apparent - for example, what exactly is the difference between massive breasts and pastoral ones, just lactation? Sometimes, the player doesn't see the effect of the choice until they buy a slave, and by then the opportunity to change your mind is long gone.

    Being able to change a specialization, remove it completely, or pick one later when you initially chose "none" would be most welcome.

    1. This isn't available because I haven't gotten to it, not because I'm hostile to the idea. It's planned for my next pass on the corporation: there should be a corporate reorganization option that allows this kind of thing but applies a reorganization malus.

  2. BUG

    Something's wrong with custom slave generation at start. Picking a slave of a different nationality reset it in the slave's description but not in the customizable fields below.

    Similarly, there is an issue with genitals: the automatically generated slave was female; the second slave, after a nationality reset, was male; the second slave kept various vaginal options (labia size, wetness) despite not being given a vagina.

  3. BUG: The game is incorrectly detecting the save version. My save was created in 0.9.6.5 but I am getting a warning telling me it was created in 0.9.5 and that I need to start a new game.

    BUG or TYPO: The game says that 0.9.5 is an incompatible save version, but this post says the opposite.

  4. Two things:

    1 - Giving a slave earrings makes the description also say she has nasal studs and a large septum ring, even if she doesn't. And if you do give her a nasal piercing, nothing is added to the description.

    2 - Have a slave with both sets of genitals that has this as part of her description: "As an obedient sex slave, she does her best to keep $possessiveself hard for her Mistress"

    1. Happened in my game as well But it was bangles that was making this bug. Some semi fix solution was to give the slave simple stud in her nose then confirming then equiping different clothing and then removing the stud. Desription then updated correctly However after equiping bangles again it was again wrong. On another slave however description was normal - ears piercings and bangles and description was ok. It was happening only on specific slave so far.

  5. Manually changing a slave's birthweek to 0 in creation still triggers a birthday in week 4. Other custom birthweeks result in similarly misplaced birthdays. I tested a slave with a birthweek of twenty-something and her birthday wound up in week 3.

    1. I'd like this addressed as well. It's been an issue for many different versions for a while now. You can get by it by just spamming the nationality button to generate a new slave like before and customize through that, but I'd rather save my carpal tunnel for actual masturbating.

      Delete
    2. I'd like to address this too, believe me. I haven't been able to fix it yet, but not for lack of trying.

    3. Ah crud. That's one tenacious bug. Unrelated note, fuckdoll conversions appear to be free.

      Delete
  6. Whoa, that fuckdoll revamp sounds right up my alley. Thank you based dev.

    Noticed a bug: Right after game start, the slave I got for free (Kiki) is said to have large amounts of ejaculate in her diet at the end of week report. She doesn't. I even reloaded and clicked again on "Diet: Healthy" and "Diet Base: Normal" to make sure it's registered correctly. This seems to happen consistently. My self-made slaves don't suffer this problem, but I just bought a new slave from the cheapest market, and she now gets the same messages. Normally, I wouldn't care, but it causes their breasts to shrink, which bugs me.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. AHA! Found a temporary solution. Anybody who has this problem, set the Diet Base to "Cum & Milk Based". It's the only one that doesn't give a malus.

      Delete
    2. Meant to say "Cum & Milk Added", of course. This is enough posts for now.

      Delete
  7. BUG: I created a slave at slave creation screen. I did set her age to 18 and week to 0 which means she is just turned to 18. 5th week of the game she turned 19.

    BUG 2: When you are getting a new slave there is 2 choices: impregnation and insemination. Both of them knocks up slave but impregnation doesn't change devotion of trust at all while insemination can change it. Also they continue to retain their virginity after choosing either of them.

    BUG3: Retirement age to menial slaves is set to 45 and cannot be changed from policies.

    Also this is one suggestion, there is living conditions right, spare, normal and luxurious. "Master bedroom" condition also can be added to them? Not as a job like concubine and fucktoy but as a living condition. Maybe can be applicable for only emotionally bonded slaves or something.

  8. Any chance we'll be getting scenes where the master does some oral on a slave? Just curious.

    ReplyDelete
  9. BUG: Still experiencing issues where I am not allowed to assign either a Head Girl or a Recruiter from any slaves with a devotion level above "Devoted". It wants either Devoted slaves or no one at all; Worshipful slaves are not allowed for some reason. It'll allow a Bodyguard to be selected from the ranks of the Worshipful (after you build the required room), but that's it. This continues to cause issues because by the time I've finished training up a decent Head Girl prospect, she's invariably Worshipful with the time needed to get all the skills in place. And even if not, restricting it to the Devoted level makes little sense.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree it makes little sense, but as a workaround, I suggest setting her as Head Girl while she's Devoted and training her then. Should give you the same results functionally, afaik there's no reason to finish training before assigning her as HG.

      Delete
    2. Is your worshipful slave immobile or unable to talk? I'm able to assign worshipful girls to be Head Girl just fine. Go ahead and send me a save with the names of the slaves in the save you think should be HG-eligible.

      Delete
    3. *slaps forehead* Unable to talk! That has to be it! Since I went with Slave Surgery, I'd generally customize my starting slave to make her a good Head Girl prospect with an applicable background, then give her the bonus implants-- and either she would ask for "the works" before I finished training her or I'd get to the point of starting up Transformation Fetishism and give her a facepussy before actually getting her situated as my Head Girl. Then in order to get the bonuses for each of my girls, and because it was cheap due to background, I'd plump up all of their lips...

      Okay, so I need to exercise a bit more restraint on the lip implants. At least for the girls that are supposed to be recruiting and training other girls. Can't believe I didn't think of that. I'm too used to them only being mute if their vocal cords are removed. Thanks for the mental push.

      Delete
    4. I was doing the same shit with my girls. It took until 7.6 before I found out what was wrong, and I've been making my main girls have facepussies since they came out. Although without the disgusting implants of course.

      Delete
  10. Is there a way to have the Rules Assistant surgically sterilize slaves? I hate paying for weekly contraceptives almost as much as I hate having to manually sterilize slaves, so some automation would be a godsend.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I already mentioned this before in the 0.9.5 version's comment section but I'll just literally copy and paste it here so that it might get a little more attention since it'll now be closer to the top I guess.

    "Hey man, love they way the game is heading but, would you reconsider reworking the way how male genitalia affects a slave's attractiveness? At the current state of the game, having a penis (as a slave) seems more like a flaw than a feature when it comes to their beauty.

    Right now, the bigger the penis/testicles are the less attractive a slave becomes, and while that is reasonable, the fact the contrary of that makes them more attractive instead feels kinda off. And there's also the fact that the size of a slave's ballsack doesn't seem to have a negative effect on the slaves beauty no matter how big it is, instead testicles are the ones that hit a slaves attractiveness score just by having them, even if they're vestigial which doesn't really make sense.

    Imo, it would make more sense to have a scale starting from the middle (normal size) being the less damaging to their beauty and have subsequent sizes on each side of the scale reduce their attractiveness score (or perhaps even have it increased for small and large sizes only?) for penises; And have ballsacks instead of testicles (because you know... wrinkly stuff...) be the other main driver for lowering a slaves beauty score when it comes to appraising a slave's male assets.

    I know the gender radicalism path sort of offers a way to alleviate that "problem" through policies, but that just makes it seem like girls with dicks are universally wrong in the game's setting, which is kind of ironic giving how much society has "progressed" towards a more open sexual culture in-game."

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To give a short answer of the biggest reason for this, it is because the beauty scores are according to NORMATIVE, as in the most common, sexual preferences, relative to prostitution in particular, so naturally, more feminine slaves will have higher beauty values, given the (at least perceived) greater inclination of men to seek the services of a prostitute. That said, I would also like to see at least some sort of change to this, with the most preferable method being through a starting option. This ties in a bit, I think, to FC Author's previously stated difficulty in writing scenes in which a slave takes the "active," (as in pitching) role when having sex with a non-slave, since this would be making the slave more dominant than their non-slave partner, unless there is a way in which this inversion of dom and sub is taken into account.

    2. DeathRowe's right about what attraction in the game represents. I should explain this better in game, but the best short version is this: imagine showing the slave to 100 random citizens from your arcology, and then saying "Raise your hand if you'd like to tap that."

      However, unless I'm misunderstanding what you both are asking for, I think this is already in the game! Society starts off preferring slaves without dicks, but that's up to you to change if you prefer. Gender Radicalism will turn dicks into a straight positive for attractiveness as it develops. Asset Expansionism has a similar effect for extremely large ones, since it boosts the attractiveness of all huge body parts.

      Delete
    3. Fair enough, I guess I need to play around with my FS policies then. I think the only issue left is how vestigial testicles still affect a slave's attractiveness and their scrotum wont, not even the saggiest ones.

  12. Slave training seems to be broken. I get no flavor text for teaching a girl skills and no upgrades appear and my head girl is set to "train skills" and doesn't appear to be doing anything as she also gets no end of week text for it.

  13. It would be very nice to add a new 'custom folder' in the resources folder in order to make it possible for the player to apply hand-picked pic on specific slave in game. You would for instance have to numerate the png files from 1 to 10, and ingame you would get an option to chose a custom pic.
    That would be the ultimate customisation !

  16. Unrelated to the patch changes, but I have a small suggestion. Change the beauty description for very ugly and very beautiful to hideous and gorgeous respectively. It's a minor change, but it would help distinguish those classes of beauty better.

  17. Would it be possible to have an option to increase how many events happen in a week? Sometimes, it just seems like only one random event isn't a lot, same with one random slave event.

  23. "Fuckdolls are restricted from all assignments other than fucktoy duty..."

    Would you ever consider changing the name of either fuckdolls or fucktoys? The names seem confusingly similar for how different the roles actually are. They both imply dehumanizing and objectifying, but only fuckdolls actually involve objectification. In my mind, a toy doesn't imply something more independent than a doll.

  24. I can't get autosurgery to work for the life of me. How exactly do I get it to function?
    I have it set to tighten orifices in rules assistant, but it doesn't work on any of my slaves regardless of devotion or trust level. I have all the penthouse updates, everything. Do I have to allow it or something?

    1. In the RA, there is a section labeled 'Drug Regimen'. Under it is 'Assistant-applied implants'. It must be 'on' to use the autosurgery.

  25. OVERSIGHT: The Rules Assistant still displays "Include cum in slaves' diets" as an option under "slave diets".

  26. BUG: In the newest (9.7.2) version, slaves with low Devotion (lower than Accepting) are being "inappropriately proud" of their clothing even when in degrading clothing. Or completely naked. Even when I strip every last thing that could be a modifier (tattoos, piercings, heels, corsets, implants, heck I even took her braces and glasses away) from the girls, they're still inappropriately proud, causing a negative devotion gain modifier each week.

    It's not a gamebreaking bug, but it does slow things down a bit and it's just flat-out odd.

    ReplyDelete
  27. (Possible) BUG: Arabian Revivalist FS disapproves of the size of the harem even if I have as many as 20 fucktoys. This is in 9.7.2, the inner files suggest that 1 fucktoy for every 3500 rep I have should be enough; so 6 should be enough even for maxed out rep.
