Update

This is a brief update to report that work on 0.10.0 is ongoing. As I've mentioned in the past, it sometimes happens that I can find time to work on the game, but can't set aside the necessary block of time to support a release; that's been the case for several weeks now. Then project growing pains due to the increasing number of changes being submitted through GitHub and my own inexperience with the platform led me to mismanage a couple of Git commits, pushing the next public release back again. Continual thanks are due to the contributors adding to the game on GitHub, especially those who helped me untangle the recent mess.

0.10.0 is going to include hundreds of bugfixes added since 0.9.10 and I anticipate it being a more stable game by far. Other finalized 0.10.0 additions include:
  • UI improvements, including an option with many more displayed stats.
  • Comprehensive societal progress, prosperity, and influence rebalancing.
  • Refactored waists and faces with updates to waist and face changes.
  • Statted prostates, as a precursor to nulls and cum production enhancement.
  • A major contributed content pack for augmented girls.
  • Vector art collars.
  • Several new events.
  • Many more minor improvements.

  1. maybe wrong place maybe not....just wondering if there is/are any mission / event after the daughters and rival have been dealt with or if it is just default to making more slaves and selling them over and over. I'm at week 115 with 12 worshipful profoundly trusting nymphos a fully decked out "security force" and really not much to do except bask in my overwhelming credit count...

    1. Security Force is currently the closest thing there is to an 'end game'. You have completed the available story content.

  2. It's good to hear from you FCDev. Glad to hear things are progressing. Even slow progress is progress in the end. Keep up the good work ^-^

    1. The thing is, it's not really slow progress at all. I've been putting in my usual coding and writing time; I just haven't been able to come up with release time.

    2. Ah, well, I'll wait however long it takes. It's always worth the wait, no matter how small or big the updates are :)

    3. exactly how i feel. specially considering how often you updated the game in the past. it feels a little delay every now and then can't be helped. :P though please don't hold it against me for wanting an update ASAP haha

  6. Thanks for the update. Is the rendered Imagepack going to get updated anytime soon - personally I prefer it over vectors.

  10. So nice to hear from you FC Author and I was wondering if there will ever be the possibility of slaves with dicks to penetrate the PC.

  12. Ever since the last update, every new girl I recruit has her nationality completely fucked up. Will the next update be able to retroactively fix them and give nationalities to girls who are missing them?

  13. Good to hear from you, devbro. I have a small question: has there been other additions to the vector art pack, other than collars? Things like pubic hairs, fitness levels, hair styles, etc?

    YES!!

    YES!!

  15. >Statted prostates, as a precursor to nulls

    o bby

    Can't wait to cut off a slave's dick as punishment.

    Any intention for something like urethral insertions/plugs? Could work for male or female. While it's not what I want it for, I imagine some people would like the idea of their slaves not being able to pee. Personally, I just want it cause it's hot.

  16. Looking forward to the smart piercing rework.

  18. Im not sure if this had been addressed, but i simply what to state that the previous option to play this game on the phone has been taken away. I had up to this point gotting very far ( day 186) and have waited to see if u would bring back updates for those whom played on the phone. Will that happen or no. Either way i really love this game and have hoped ( and still do) to see it finish since 0.5.2

    1. There is no phone-only version. If your phone can handle large HTML code and can run JavaScript, then it should run the game. Do make sure to enable desktop version on the phone browser, because otherwise saving and loading games becomes very limited.

      Delete
    2. Did you try downloading Firefox? That's what I use to play on my android phone. It works better than chrome with this game imo so I use it exclusively for this. And all options are available too.

    2. you could always get turtle svn, use the repo and compile yourself. You just need to run the .bat and get the file in the bin folder. It´s also pretty nice to add and keep some tweaks to keep my bitches in mint condition.

  20. Totally random, but I bought slave that had bronze skin. How the heck do I get that? I've tried playing with the auto salon, but I simply cannot replicate it. Anyone have any ideas or know how to get that description?

  21. With long term widespread economic warfare, arcologies can get a negative prosperity which makes the share price go negative. (they pay you to take it:) Also found out that it can break the rival events.

    1. If you want an update that badly, just go to the GitHub repository and compile it yourself. Seriously.

  29. whatever entitlement parasite has latched onto the insides of these peoples' colons... seriously it's on the damn post "it sometimes happens that I can find time to work on the game, but can't set aside the necessary block of time to support a release" these people need to take a chill pill and a step back and realize the sun doesn't orbit around them and people have fucking lives to live. ffs people, get a hobby or two.

    1. Exactly. It's a free game FC Author works on because it's rewarding. All the bitching about it not being done yet is just going to make it less rewarding. If he decides it's not worth the hassle and stops working on it then all the impatient ones did is ruin it for everyone, including themselves.

  30. Its still being worked on. The last code change was 9 hours ago at the time of this post. They are making alot of changes and additions that caused alot of bugs as well as the code revert that happened. Currently they have 11 patches to the current code to get worked in before it might be ready, and even then there may be more issues.

    1. Update as of 5 Hours ago, all 11 patches have been applied and 5 new patches need to be applied to fix new bugs found.

  31. Just wanted to be a voice aside from the jerks who keep pushing you. You update so well and so frequently, always with quality content. Thank you for all your hard work and please don't listen to those people.

  32. Hey, wanted to commend you on your good work. I've been amazed at the number and speed of the updates you've made for this game, and just wanted to show my appreciation, especially after seeing some of the negative backlash the wait for this update seems to be getting you.

    This is an amazing game, but also as a developer you seem to be shooting for the stars with your concept. With such projects people have learned to be wary and expectant of the projects becoming dead. You’ve done a fantastic job with Free Cities, and I was satisfied with the project several updates ago, yet you keep making the game better. I think that makes people even more afraid at the prospect of the game becoming dead, though. It would be a shame to see the project just fade away.

    I don’t believe that is what will happen, and I am sure there are some trolls as well (they tend to be easy enough to distinguish). I love your work, keep it up, Master. The Arcology is developing well.

    Is there a document describing the procedure for this ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Click the download button and select zip file. Then extract the whole contents into a new Free Cities Main Folder. Then run the compile.dat file found in the main directory. This will create the .html file you normally get in the bin folder within the Free cities folder you created.

      This is also posted in full in the instructions section at the bottom of the GitHub Page as well as mac directions.

      ALSO FC v0.10 is extremely buggy and prone to bugs, crashes, and loop/memory errors at the moment. Compile and use at your own risk. Saves from the v0.10 may not work between patches or with future versions or with previous versions.

    2. It definitely won't work with previous saves.

  35. Hey is there a list of slave types and their conditions somewhere. I'm trying to make a harem of traps but its kinda hard without them.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm not sure about the exact conditions, but I know generally what is needed for a trap. Traps need feminine faces (Cute, Sensual, Exotic), A dick, no vagina, and flat breasts (or small ones. I think up to 200cc on the breasts is fine). If they have breasts I believe they become a "shemale". Gelding may also disqualify them, but I'm not 100% sure on that one.

      Delete
    2. Up to B Cups are fine for not being called shemale. I think it is on the same scale as the "girlish" body type. Even though I do not know if they can have bigger asses than the girlish body type.

  37. @FC Author, as well as everyone that has siphoned off a portion of their time from their daily lives to contribute to this project...

    THANK YOU for your efforts to work on this delightfully different game. Although I have yet to reach even 100 weeks in any of the dozens of new instances I've started and restarted (thanks to the amount of major updates for both vanilla and mod versions that are released, and wanting to see the new content by starting from scratch), it's fairly obvious that this is a labor of love... and a damn good one too. If only other similiar games had as much development to them as this, the western adult game market might be all the better for it.

    3. Funny enough, there's a couple mods in the "Modding FC" section of this blog as well. Other than 8chan's version, I can't say anything about them though.

      Delete
    4. Pregmod includes content to artificially age up children so you can have them as slaves, adds new origins for your PC, adds some customization to your PC (that really only comes into play when having children) as well as some more extreme content and events that I kinda feel a little weird about discussing on here. Oh, it also has extended family mod bundled in with it, which will allow slaves to have several family members. You can have twenty different slaves all related in various ways to one another. Which is pretty neat.

      Delete
  39. Is there going to be more content for the players wife in the future, just that as it currently stands marrying a slave does not really matter that much to the game mechanics(events etc).
