0.6.2.3 and some notes

Here's new version:

Don't forget 0.6.2.0 for pictures
https://mega.nz/#!hccihByK!8qFKAx0pGsPQvqwzxytkkA7Mdtd-ePmbcHzCXqJn-IE

0.6.2.4
Fixed starting girl creation screen
0.6.2.3
Fixed crossroads encounter
Added pregnancy chance on prostitution, fucktoy and sleeping in your bed and being horny event
Added option to cut hair shorter
Torture/punishment options build up stress instead of outright reducing willpower stats (very high stress will still cause breakage tho)
Fixed repeatable quest not being completable
Headgirl assignment gives exp
Enabled random sexual traits generation
Added unique mental traits to character generation

So whats new mental traits? Those are randomly may occur on characters giving some more depth to their personality.
Currently there's 10 unique traits with 8 being basic and 2 being advanced. 
Coward – Doubles stress gained in combat.
Iron will – stress does not cause willpower stats to drop
Passive – obedience growth rate increased
Clingy - loyalty growth rate increased
Prude – sexual checks are harder to pass. After hitting certain corruption point is removed.
Loner – can't be influenced by others (headgirl and instigation) 
Frail - mental breakdowns require less stress
Pliable - after hitting loyalty or corruption cap (whichever first) changes to Devoted or Slutty
       Devoted - courage/wit increased on acquirement, loyalty can’t drop below 80
       Slutty - conf/charm increased on acquirement, doubles as nymphomaniac trait. 

So that's about it for now. I kinda how last traits work and will probably find some more use for interesting interactions like this in future. 

Now it looks like voting taking favor of more management features, which is fine, although bit heavier on the engine. I wanna work bit more on laboratory features (including changing PC's appearance), but there's also plans on redoing main quest line and giving more information to new players on management and stuff. Spell system could use some upgrades too, so... I guess next update will take some time. Thank you for your attention.

  1. Will there be option to kill prisoners for mana?
    Also you can't advance past "Lastly, mentally she's" part when creating girl

    1. Probably that you have to install v6.2.3 on top of 6.2.0 to get the pics working.

  3. If character creation and your first slave creation tools are any indication this game could go far indeed.
    I feel you're on the right track with it.
    Yes, this is going to be delicious, i hope. :P

  5. Also, the download point to 0.6.2, no trace (..) of 0.6.3 or 0.6.4 (since mentioned in the changelog).

    1. There is a file size difference.

      The basic 0.6.2 download came as a .zip that contained some pictures and backgrounds.

      Delete
    2. Yes, you download 0.6.2.0 and then 0.6.2.4 and change html file.

      Delete
    3. None of the downloads for 0.6.2 have an image pack, anymore. They're all HTMLs now, not ZIPs.

      Delete
    4. Ignore my original post. I found the 0.6.2.0 with the art pack, but it's not the ones you have linked. It'd help if you could edit the post with the correct links;

  6. How do you increase stats like Courage, Confidence, Wit, Charm. there is no help i can find to understand how you do it

    1. Mostly you don't. There's very few ways which can actually improve those.

    2. Racial traits, raping prisoners and winning fights may have some small effects

      Delete
    3. Tried using a non-bisexual companion on the prisoner, both companion and prisoner, lost both confidence and charm.

      So, exercise care!

    4. Sufficient corruption is required when dealing with doubtful interactions to have no backlash. :)

  7. When casting Mind Read in encounter with Dryad:
    Special Skills — Entangle undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined

  8. So why can't player be seraph or one of few other races available to girls?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Implications are bit hard on this part. I shouldn't probably let player pick just any race for starting girl, but its kinda more of a showcase example.

  9. As of 0.6.2.4 savegames seem to forget library upgrades, having bought the alchemy set, and your accepted slave training side-quest. I'm not sure but I think there was something else as well.

    Missing from the help is what all the potions do.

    1. Well, library upgrades don't actually do anything yet so I didn't include them. Repeatable quest wasn't saved to conserve space and I don't think this is necessary.

      Help will be redone soon though.

      Delete
  10. about the new personality traits do they affect the slave from an old save file also where can we see the traits?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, all old slaves will get no special personality traits. You can see them in profile next to sexual traits (if you have and revealed those). They are also not mandatory and only have some chance to occur.

  11. I noticed that when customizing your initial girl, it seems to reroll her face at the end summary screen. So if you roll undeniably ugly, it might turn into cute by the end, or if you roll exceptional beauty it could turn into just very pretty.

    ReplyDelete

    1. It's not rerolling. Face beauty depends on the strength you pick.

  12. Just a couple thoughts.
    On naming you character. you have "surnace" instead of "surname"

    On girls, the Seraph is basically worthless. Every other race is a flat bonus. Meanwhile the seraph just has a penalty.

  13. When you buy a slave it says she is branded to you, but when you check on her at the mansion it says she isn't branded.

  14. Tried your game today and just had to comment:

    There is a bug with the slaver request, where you can't select a girl, and it takes the your first girl instead, since that's the default selected, even when you use the companion option.

    Also, when it's saying experienced, does it mean novice, or apprentice? If it's latter, you're losing money doing the requests -- human girls = around 100 + training (100+200) means a total of 400, excluding food costs, while it only rewards 300, usually.

    Lastly, really need better ways to get gold, since selling slaves usually don't net you much.

    1. I believe repeatable quest was fixed in 6.2.3. It requires novice.

      Try brothel assignments for gold generation.

    2. Yeah, was playing on tfg and thought the one listed was the current version. Sorry about that.

      Anyways, just had a thought: How come mages don't collect mana from killing live stocks and hunting? Is it cuz it's marginal compared to collecting from sentient beings?

      Also, might want to include how to get essences, for alchemy, somewhere -- maybe when you buy the alchemy kit, add a book to the library.
