Continued goals for 0.1.95

Hello everyone! ^^

Going into these final two weeks before I take a 1-week break for Christmas, there are three major things that I'm going to be focusing on; fixing bugs, adding in sex content, and writing in a Christmas event.

The amount of bugs that have been introduced into the game as a result of creating this new save format is far too high. I have a huge list of issues that need to be fixed, and so I really need to dedicate quite some time to tackling these. I'll be working on these bug fixes alongside the sex-related content this week, which includes a rework of the underlying system to allow for multiple-partner sex scenes. That may prove to be yet another case of being too ambitious, so please be aware that this may run over a little into the next version as well!

After the public release on Friday, I'm going to write in a Christmas-themed event, which will then be released as another public release on Friday 22nd December. ^^


Goals for 0.1.95:

- Improve orgasm dialogue, and add in position-specific orgasm scenes with body-part recognition (such as knotting, orifice modifiers, fluid modifiers, etc.).
- Add thigh sex.
- Work on final improvements to the sex system.
- Add in missing content related to the new transformations. Addictive fluids, part modifiers referenced during sex, etc.
MAJOR Bug fixes (there are a lot of these to do).
MAJOR Add in engine support for multiple-partner sex scenes.


Goals for 0.1.96 (the following week):

- Write in a Christmas event.

  2. Can anyone explain to me how addiction works, or will work in the future?
    Also for Innoxia: is there any badends in game or any planned to be? Love the game please keep kicking butt! ^.^

    1. Addiction works at the moment like this:
      - The person consuming addictive fluids gains an addiction.
      - This addiction is counted as 'satisfied', but will turn into a withdrawal effect if more of the fluid is not consumed.
      - Consuming a non-addictive version of the fluid they're addicted to will satisfy the addiction and reset the 'satisfied' effect timer.
      - Consuming an addictive version will satisfy the addiction timer, but will also increase the addiction level.
      - Higher addiction levels will have far more serious withdrawal effects.
      - You can remove addiction by waiting out the withdrawal effects, or consuming the item "Angel's Nectar".

      I'm going to change & expand this a little soon so that the only way to remove an addiction will be through use of "Angel's Nectar" (waiting out the withdrawal effect will be removed).
      I'll also be adding in special events & dialogue variations for addictions. :3

    2. Oh, also, there aren't any bad ends in the game at the moment. I did include one when I first released the game (if you lost to Brax), but I decided that it was more fun to be able to to continue playing through bad ends. I *might* include bad ends later on, but they will most likely be an optional toggle. ^^

      Thank you for your kind words! :3

  3. Can't wait for it <3 Every update it's a joy in my week. Amazing work, hope Santa give you something nice for all you've done! :3

  4. I really wish that the addiction were tracked more specifically to the giving individual rather than applying generally to the fluid of all members of the same race. IE if I take the addictive cum TF it's not cause I want to get partners hooked on demon cum in general it's cause I want to get them hooked on 'my' cum specifically.

    Hopefully there will be some change to make addictions more specific eventually.

    1. I was originally going to do that (track addiction to individual NPCs), but it has the potential to get very messy and hard to keep track of... ;_;

      I'm still working on the addiction system, so I'll see what I can do. :3

  5. Looking at the clothing system, it looks like it could easily support buttplugs. Is that a possibility?

    1. I'm sure it's panned. The biological tailpipe is among the myriad of clothing types recognized by the debug menu, there just isn't anything for it yet.

      You don't need the debug menu. Look at the two slots at the bottom-right of the regular inventory some time. Speaking of which; would it improve the UI if slots for parts that you don't have (i.e. penis for females, wings for non-demons, tail for humans, etc.) would be greyed out?

      Delete
    3. The first thing a friend (a girl, no less) who is also playing asked me, was how to "equip" the eggplant in the bum-slot. I said "you can't" and she asked for the witch's broom. And if there are buttplugs. I guess there's going to be more content related to it?
      (Strap-ons for female players?)

      Delete
    4. Buttplugs are definitely planned, as are strap-ons and content to go with them. (Maybe I'll allow the eggplant to be used like this as well... ^^)

  7. the transformer fetish has too valuable of an effect to not want to take it. so, even if the potions you are making are non-transformatives the fetish's effect still in effect, which makes it feel a bit unbalanced. say I were to make healing potions, why wouldn't I get the fetish that allows me to make them at half the cost. this is a problem if I do not wish for my character to have this fetish, but then I'll have to spent double the time getting essence.

    and also could you make a difficulty setting where the ennemies can spawn at levels between the player's level and half the player's level. or something along those lines.

    either way, you're doing an excellent job.

      Perhaps that should be an “Alchemist” perk, rather than a fetish? There aren’t really enough perks, IMO, and it would have a bigger opportunity cost compared to 5 essence, which is nothing. It's not like that would leave the TF fetish as worthless, since it also removes the corruption cost from forcibly TFing someone, which is more in line with what most fetishes do. It wouldn’t hurt to have a specific taunt for it, of course.

      Delete
    2. yes that would be a good Idea, to make an alchemy perk.

      Delete
    3. That is a good idea, yeah. I'll make a note to move the effects over to an alchemist perk, and then I'll think up of some sex-related effects for the transformer fetish. ^^

      Delete
  8. Exporting and importing a game causes characters' transformation preferences to change. For example someone who wanted to turn you into a girl may now want to give you a penis.

    Suggestions:

    When you beat an NPC with the "Unwilling Fuck-toy" fetish, rather than simply begging you to fuck them like other NPCs, maybe they should pretend not to want it? Not like NPCs who aren't into your gender, but like an exaggerated "Oh no! I've lost and now you're going to ravish me!" type thing.

    Sometimes when you're nearing orgasm NPCs will tell you where they want you to cum, but in my experience it doesn't happen all that often. It'd be nice to be able to ask them where they want it. It'd also be nice to get a reaction depending if you respected this or not - currently they'll tell you "I don't want to taste your cum" or whatever, but don't actually complain afterwards if you make them. Also, it would also be nice if the possible requests weren't just "inside" or "outside", but had things like "on my face" or "on my tits" even if you were fucking them.

    I recently discovered that you can change your pace in Kate's scene, and was very pleased to learn that she actually notices what you're doing to her - as far as I can tell, alley encounter NPCs have the exact same dirty talk lines whether you're being gentle or rough, and don't vary based on fetishes either. For this reason Kate's scene is one of my favourites (well, that and I just like Kate, anyway), even though it could do with more positions (like bending her over a counter, or her kneeling and sucking you off). Wait, this is supposed to be a suggestion, isn't it? Umm, "Do more like that", I guess.

    I guess that missionary and scissoring positions are already on the list, so just consider this me looking forward to when they arrive.

    Bug Reports:

    Are submissive NPCs supposed to be able to stop you fingering yourself?

    Men's trousers can only be black or white.

    Gynephilic causes you to deal half willpower damage to males. That's not what the description says it does.

    Importing a save directly from 1.89.2 to 1.90.5 is broken. The game loads, but the sidebars don't render, just the center panel. Error log here. Importing to 1.90 then exporting again works as a workaround.

    Imported potions are different to newly enchanted ones. They don't stack with them and they have the word "null" instead of the pentagram background image.

    Once Kate's tail is in your ass, there's no way to get it out again.

    A girl with the virginity fetish probably shouldn't ask you to fuck her, however if you use the "Tease her pussy" action, she will.

    1. for resisting npcs, i think that over-exaggerated resisting is funny and a good idea. the closest we've got atm is the "resist" speed that only shows up if you've got "non-consent" turned on in content options, and that is a lot more realistic.

      and for gynephyilic cutting damage to males, i think i noticed something similar with androphilic. i used it to take less damage from succubi, but i kept noticing that i dealt less will damage than i should. i'll have to go back and test this with gyno and bisexual to see if that's the actual source of the problem, but if it is, thank you for finding it.

    2. Thank you very much for all the bug reports! I'll get them fixed as soon as I can! :3

      I'll also definitely be adding in more orgasm options, such as choosing where to direct cum. And yeah, missionary & scissoring are on the list. :3

  11. I have some notes. I play almost exclusively as a submissive character, but quite frankly, submissive sex is too random to be much fun. For example, 9 times out of 10 when both the PC and NPC are female, and you submit to the NPC, all the NPC does is randomly stick her fingers in and out of her pussy and ass, then she usually just cums without anything else happening. Here's how it almost always goes (and this is regardless of NPC fetishes):

    1. NPC exposes her pussy and yours.
    2. NPC either sticks her fingers in your pussy or hers for a round or two, then pulls them out.
    3. NPC will usually switch positions, then does the same thing till she cums. Most of the time, her fingers are not even in her pussy.

    Basically, it's like the dominant female NPC doesn't want to cum from anything other than random masturbation. I'm not a lesbian so I don't know if this is how real lesbian sex works, lol.

    Submissive sex with dom male NPCs is usually okay, but every once in a while I'll get a guy who would rather finger his own ass than do anything else.

    1. I forgot something...
      A lot of times the NPC will switch positions the very turn before they cum. So if you're submissively sucking off a male NPC, he might switch to 69 with you on bottom, and then he ends up cumming on the ground. It's annoying. I don't know if it bothers anyone else but I find it takes away from the experience...

      Delete
    2. yea, they decide to change position at 95% and blow it on the ground, could be solved with a position change freezing lust gain for 2 actions.

      as for 9/10, make females almost non existent. here, this is how I set the game up on a scale of 1-6 with 1 being non existant and 6 being abundant from top to bottom

      6
      6
      1

      I usually allow for some non dick and pussies, but honestly a means to an end, if I want to have interesting encounters, they need both sets, and as far as I am concerned, there is very little in the way of non penis interactions at the moment, so if these are not interesting, why allow them to spawn right now?

      Delete
    3. Thank you very much for the feedback! I really need to do a lot more improvements to the AI in sex, as well as make them only cum if they're stimulating their genitals. I'll add your notes to my list, and make sure to get all these issues fixed when I next work on the sex AI! ^^

  12. Hello Innoxia. Thank You for answering my Wall of Text questions.

    Unfortunately, for this very reason, I must re-write some of them (questions), concentrating only on parts lost in the mass of text...
    I should have divided this better.

    Also, sorry for posting a question about the starting date when it was already in the Update Progress- I wrote most questions over the course of 3 weeks and simply copy-pasted some of them.

    1. - Great to know more events of all kinds are planned. Will those be expanded though: with (repeatable?) Quests, rituals or additional special rewards like Fetishes, perks or buffs?

      - If I understood right about the Group Content, there will be an actual limit of 6? Is the Player included or is it the number of partners? Or will it just be the interaction limit and a group of 10-20 can just switch and wait their turns?

      - Will the futa transformation of the Succubi be added to toggable content settings? Since they will be able to use Arcane Magical Strap-ons and such. I understand the story/lore concept of Succubi Transformations but I'm still asking.

      - Will we be able to turn a hostile NPC into a friendly one?

      Delete
    2. - Will we be able to romance more than one NPC and finish the romance quests with several NPCs at once? Example: Can I romance Kate, Rose and a random Cowgirl? Can I finish all 3 quests or do I have to choose? Can I romance someone new after finishing a romance quest(-line)of someone else?

      - Will there be items or potions that raise a slaves Affection/Obedience (not sure if the answer included these as well as the gifts)?

      - About "Calm Down" and "Deny" actions - In my humble opinion, yes. I needed 5x "Deny" to get an NPC from 21 arousal to 1.

      Thats all for now (grin). Take care. Love Your work.

      Inno has already said that denial will be reworked to more closely resemble real tease & denial play (which in case anyone was wondering typically does not involve keeping your partner bored during sex; that’s just being a shitty lover).

      Delete
    4. I will add more (possibly repeatable) quests later on, as well as maybe adding in special rewards such as perks/fetishes/buffs. ^^

      The amount of partners in a sex scene will be limited by the current position's maximum capacity. I envision most group sex involving 3-4 characters, although there will be large group positions that will support many more. ^^

      I don't think I'll add a content toggle for futa succubi (I'm only really adding content toggles for the extreme stuff). ^^

      I'll add actions to enable you to gain affection with initially-hostile NPCs, which will then allow you to invite them to live with you. ^^

      You will be able to romance several NPCs at once, yes. ^^

      You will be able to buy gifts for your slaves to increase their affection. :3

      I will be changing the the deny actions in sex soon. :3

      Thank you for the questions and kind words! ^^

  13. You can increase your physical resist indefinitely by repeatedly selecting the buttons at the start of the character creation screen.
    Don't know if it's intentionally there or something since I just found this game a few days ago.
