Goals for 0.1.84.5

EDIT:

The github will be updated, and the preview for patrons will be released on Saturday (probably 23:00-04:00 BST). I had to make a new UI for the slave's clothing and item management, and it took a little longer than I expected. ;_;

Sorry for the little delay once again, and I hope you don't mind waiting an extra day. ;_;

--------

Hello once again! :3

I didn't post this yesterday, as I thought that the hotfix post was enough for one day. ^^

Anyway, I'm only going to give myself two targets for this week (slavery and bug fixing), and, because slavery is such a large task, I'll split it up into sub-targets. Then, next week, I'll focus on incest and orgasm content. ^^

Once again, I'll try to keep this list updated during the week. A green X means that it's done.


Weekly goals - Basic Slavery and Bug Fixing

Slave Accommodation
X Unlock rooms in Lilaya's house.
X Room upgrades.

Slave Acquisition
X Enslaving attackers in alleyways & nests.
X Buying slaves from Slaver Alley.
X Transfer slaves from Slavery Administration to Lilaya's home.

Slave Management
X Clothing. (This one is going to be significantly larger than all the other tasks...)
X Items.
X Fetishes.
X Jobs.
X Room assignment.
X Permissions & rules.

Slave Interactions
X Talk.
X Give gift.
X Punish.
X Sex.

Slave Removal
X Free.
X Sell.

Bug fixes
X Fix at least 10 bugs.


Ongoing projects:

Implement new saving system:
X Try and get all Serializable objects to work between versions. (This didn't work.)
X Decide on using XML or JSON. (JSON turned out to be a lot faster - thanks Pimgd!)

JSON conversion for:
X Body
X Inventory
X Map
X NPCs
X Finishing touches

  2. This is more of just sharing an interesting NPC but I encountered quite an interesting combination the other day.

    I encountered my character's Greater Succubus daughter. She had an afro, aviator sunglasses, a bikini, and platform shoes with lilac skin. Picturing it was both appealing AND worth a sensible chuckle. Disco succubus lol.

    I don't usually, but this time I really did appreciate the afro's inclusion. I think it was a good call. Any plans for dreads?

    On the subject of hair, I've never come across a bald/shaved haircut on a female NPC. Incredibly uncommon in real life I know, but I'm curious if it's just uncommon or not included in this game.

    1. Disco succubus! ^^

      There isn't a way for female NPCs to spawn with bald/shaved hair at the moment, but I'm going to be tweaking the random NPC creation methods over the next couple of weeks, so I'll add it in as a small chance. :3

  3. Is it me or are females (randoms, I mean) locked in having D-DD cup only? I've yet to run into any females with a different size yet. RNG shenanigans or bug?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Likely RNG. I've come across everything from AA to FF(or HH, possibly). Species seems to have a certain effect. Horsegirls and succubi usually have huge tits and harpies are usually itty bitty(Unless bimbo like Brittany).

      Humans, wolf girls, dog girls, cat girls, squirrel girls, and even cow girls tend to hover between Bs and DDs. The latter three on the larger half of that spectrum and the former three on the smaller.

      At least that's been my experience so far.

      Delete
    2. To confirm other-anon above, chest size is very dependant on species, though there's more than just that too.

      You can check the Encyclopedia to see all the average dimensions you can expect from the various species. (phone->encyclopedia->races)

      Delete
    3. I can also confirm that both Anons above are correct. ^^

      I'm going to be tweaking the random character generation methods over the next couple of weeks, so I'll add small probabilities for breast size (and other stats) to be unusually large or small for the associated race. ^^

  4. Great game, just started playing but can't talk to Lexi about the shop to progress the main story. I could in 1.84 but my imported character can't in 1.84.1
    Should I just start again ?

    1. Wrong harpy? Try Alexa instead of Lexi.

  5. Hey, I wonder if you thinking about adding player slavery? Like being sold to some generic master that will indulge one of fetishes (like milking or breading of PC)?

  6. Very good game. I started playing it at the start of the year and I have seen the evolution and it's very great. It's a shame that I don't have time to code and help but I would like to.

  7. Are there any plans for reptilian, insectoid, aquatic, or amphibian species? A garden snake-type naga could be a good fit for a non-specific zone/starting area.

    An interesting "event" could be an orgy, such as garden snakes have during mating season. Could even make it a quest. Would you help the males find the ACTUAL female(s)? Or lead them to the trap(s) that's pretending to be a girl(s) and take the real one(s) for yourself? Or the other way around.

    Don't wanna push too much of my own thoughts onto this, just sharing a thought.

    1. There are going to be ALOT more species which're going to be added later on, but the game is still SUPER early in development.

      Delete
    2. Yes, there definitely will be races of all of those species added later on! I'm planning on adding lizards, lamia, bees, wasps, ants, mermaids, octopuses, frogs, and many more! ^^

      I'll also most likely integrate snake mating balls into their lore (as a preference for group sex), so a quest like that may happen at some point! ^^

  8. Glad to see it'll be possible to enslave defeated NPCs! This should make for... *interesting* situations when combined with incest content :P

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hmmgh, here's a semi-random idea, but what about having a second variable in sex scenes that's similiar to how arousal works already but instead accounts for how painful an action is?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Expanding upon the above idea I posted a bit more, it would probably make more sense to basically have it represent their dislike or general tolerance for what's happening in a sex scene. Such as someone without an exhibitionist fetish having sex before an audience, or something along the lines of a dog-morph disliking the idea of a cat-morph dominating them, or someone refusing to pull out when that was just requested of them before their orgasm.

      Delete
    2. I do like the sound of that, but I fear that if I add another mechanic like that at this stage, it will end up stalling development. I'll probably stick with using the sex pace mechanic as a way to represent the NPC's interest in the sex scene. ^^

      Delete
    3. Ok, I really don't want to and brow beat you over to the idea, but I consider it to have a few more implications in sex scenes than merely representing an NPC's interest. Now I really don't want to ask you to stall game development just to add in something like this, so at must I'd ask for a compromise along the lines of adding it in to future content, either as it being scene specific for example with BDSM scenes only in say a dungeon type location or anything that specifically tests an NPCs endurance and staying power, or just adding it in as a placeholder value for new content and with either you very slowly going back and adding it in to all of the older content before enabling it in game play, or letting someone else basically focus on adding it in instead depending on what needs to be done for that.

      In one fashion, it changes the sex scenes to have a sort of a mini-game element to them, in which you need to balance out their arousal gain vs. their tolerance gain and your own arousal gain, with different endings to the sex scene depending on which bar you managed to fill before ending the scene.

      For example if filling up the arousal bar would give positive affection points, then filling up the tolerance bar instead would give some form of negative affection points. And an NPC might decide to treat the Player as a rival or start to desire to get some form of revenge against them at high enough negative affection or a slave might start to try and rebel, or they might start to act more subservient and fearful/respectful towards the Player instead. In essence it's a way to add in more weight and consequences for a players actions during a sex scene, and the bar is just a way of easily conveying where a player stands at in terms of pushing an NPC too far and suffering those consequences or bonuses.

      It could also be used to provide an NPC/Player a way to avoid orgasm, instead of an automatically orgasm at 100 arousal they could instead choose to try and fill up their tolerance bar to delay it, which naturally any action which raises tolerance on their partner's part might cause them to suddenly lose control.

      Another simple role it could serve is to keep track of how many times one can orgasm during a scene, if say after every orgasm you add a debuff to max tolerance eventually you could end up at a point where they have no tolerance at all and they're basically passed out or completely exhausted.

      It could also be tied in with the stretching/virginity loss mechanics, so say if different paces cause different tolerance gains in their partner, then if they had just lost their virginity they might have an effect that's a simple 2 times multiplier to tolerance gain, so if the paces were usually 3, 5, 7, then instead it would be 6, 10 and 14 to represent how it's less painful to go slower and so the tolerance bar wouldn't be maxed out and the NPC wouldn't gain some sort of negative trait from the players actions.

      Now, having expressed my opinion and reasoning a bit more, if you still want to simply say no for the same reason, I'm more than willing to accept that without continuing this point.

      Delete
    4. Now that you've explained it fully, I see what you mean. I do think this is a very good idea, and there might be an opportunity to add it without creating a huge amount of work.

      Perhaps I could use the tolerance bar as a way of setting the pace during sex. So, following the ways you describe, the NPC's tolerance drops or lowers based on what actions are performed.

      Then, if their tolerance drops below, say, 20%, they'd start resisting. The same would go for if they have a very high tolerance. If it was over, say, 60%, they'd be eager.

      I'll see if I can work this into the game within the next few versions, thank you for the suggestion! :3

      Delete
    5. Yeah, that's exactly the sort of idea that I'm going for, basically an option to change the NPC's mood and their actions depending on how rude or considerate you are to them during a sex scene. ^^

      Another point that I want to make certain that I also get across though is the possibility of having tolerance also double as a stamina bar, so at 0% tolerance an NPC would be unconscious or unresponsive and on the other end at 100% tolerance an NPC would instantly orgasm with any arousal gain.

      But if you only want to tie in the idea with setting an NPC's pace based on players actions and not having it represent stamina also I'd be more than happy with this, since I considered it's effect on NPC responses or really their pace to be the more important element to have in the game. ^^

      Delete
    6. Actually, it'd make more sense to say that 100% tolerance basically represents a character being in heat, and they are more likely to aggressively pursue sexual contact of any kind, rather than presenting it as mainly being linked with orgasms.

      Delete
    7. Thank you so much for the idea Anon, I will definitely include a bar like this in an upcoming release (most likely when I do the combat/stats rework)! :3

  10. I was rather disappointed that when I purchased and put on a slave collar it did a "talk to Lilaya about jinxed items" sidequest rather than a port to the slaver area for processing as the dialog suggested it would be.

    The above doesn't suggest that the player becoming/playing at being a slave is a possibility. Is it something on the drawing board for "eventually" or something not likely to happen.

    Along those lines, it would be nice if purchasing and wearing a maid uniform (enough for the set bonus) would open up repeatable sidequests or storyarcs where the player works with (and/or subordinate to) Rose.

    Replies
    1. You will eventually be able to become a slave, yes. Oh, and I'll be adding in the correct behaviour for equipping slave collars for the next release. ^^

      There will be an optional quest later on where you have to work as a subordinate to Rose. :3

      Delete
    2. Sounds great, thank you!

      After becoming a slave, will there be a 'choice' (determined by prior actions, perhaps) about who to be enslaved to? I'm sure some of the shopkeepers in the mall might like to have someone (service w/o needing to give a discount, perhaps? :p), or Miss Lilaya might take interest in having that junior maid to Rose be a more permanent assignment (keeping the player around for more tests and 'tests' :p).

      Delete
    3. There will be certain NPCs that will have an option to enslave you, as well as a more 'generic' option (the results of which will depend on the enslaving NPC's personality). ^^

      The actions that you will be able to take while being a slave will be determined by what condition your owner keeps you in. :3

  12. Is it still possible for characters to have both a penis and a vagina? The last way I remember being able to do so no longer works.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is very possible, you can enable hermaphrodites/futanari's in the options menu. NPC's will randomly spawn with both sets of organs.
      Also you can create potions of vagina or penis morph and give them to NPC's or use them yourself. To give the potions to NPC's you have to be the Dom in the sex scene and use the potion on them.

    2. Yes, it should be working exactly as Richard describes. ^^

  13. PLEASE TELL ME THEIR IS GOING TO BE A THING THAT IF YOUR BODY PARTS LIKE YOUR BALLS BREASTS(balls and breasts have like 2 each or 10) THAT THEY IMPAIR YOUR MOVE-MENT DRAMATICALLY LIKE IT ADDS $ HOURS TO MOVE ONE SPACE AND IN COMBAT YOU ARE ALWAYS GOING TO GET CRIT ON SINCE SO LARGE. also the teases are massive damage to you, maybe if you get beaten by a specific person you get dragged off to a farm or some place where you are constantly milked for your fluids, extremely hard to escape since can barley move and at a certain time they relies you are trying to escape so they redo the bondage ore what ever keeping you their, so u need to start al over again :D (but the positive about your size is that you can make lots of money selling you goodness :D like milk or sperm doner since the person will get pregnant because how powerful your cum is and your milk is addictive :D

    Replies
    1. I will most likely be adding associated status effects later on for if your body parts are too big to allow you to move around comfortably. This will form part of 'hyper' content, which will be behind a content gate (much like non-con). ^^

      Delete
  14. please tell me theire will be a macanic where the size or your breasts and balls and the amount of cum or milk is produced will cause your moment to me extreamly hindered like it takes 4 hours to move one tile and you can get crited all the time during battle, new sceens when geting attacked as they are attacking your balls and breasts (lots of balls like 10 sacks and maby 10 breast if you have them.) if you lose to a sertan person they take you to a secret place and use you as cattle or a breeder since you produce so much cum or milk, it is very hard to excape and you will get taken back to sqware one after a certan time since you will jet cheked on from time to time so they will redo the straps or clamps or whatever. The only positive to having large assects like that is that you can sell your milk because it is tasty and addictive so you make more money, and your sperm will sell because it will always make somone pregnant :D

    Please add this T..T it would be the best

    (p.s. this goes for being preg with eggs as well your belly is to large and streached that it hearts to move let alone TRY and walk lol)

  16. first and most importantly, I've followed your game since 0.1.3 and I'm really happy with how it all is coming through, really loving the game, reading your updates and all the work you've put into it.

    Just one thing that may only be happening to my computer in particular, but its still really relevant.

    Doesn't matter WHAT button I click, the program always stops responding to 5-10 seconds to then do the action..it's making play the game really slow, specially walking or saving ><

    pls send help XD

      I'm not entirely sure what could be causing that issue you're having. Are you on Windows or Linux? If on Windows, you could try running the .exe to see if it's any better, or perhaps try updating your Java?

      I'll investigate this and see if I can find out what could be going wrong in the code. ^^
