Future plans

Sincerely, I have left out the most dubious, since those require some hard planning. Firstly, I'll take care of mostly easy stuff: relatives screen (already in), repeatable quests,  threesomes/orgy (skipped because sex system is very different right now and I'm not exactly sure how I gonna work around this one), a lab (probably the hardest of the easy parts, as old lab was a nightmare already, now there's also gui involved) and small stuff like racial traits. Once I'm done with those, it will come down to the two worst parts: combat and exploration. I still have pretty vague ideas on combat, except that I want it to be interactive and proactive, with possibly making it so capture chance will be based on resource management and so on.

Exploration is a different story, though. What you can see now in game is a loose adaptation of the old system. And as I was working on it, it became obvious, that I don't like it enough and new engine can do so much better. So what I have on my mind, is a multiple hub-like areas, different towns perhaps, with different shops, quests, slave guilds and races around them. This will allow lots more of freedom, dungeons, quests, hunting for specific races and drops and so on. The problem, though, is that those areas need to be designed and balanced first, and by that I mean hell lot of writing. I'll probably start by adding 1-2 additional town-hubs and couple of areas near them as thankfully I have some ideas for those. 

Anyway, if you have any ideas/reports/wishes regarding current build, hit me up.

    This error occurs whenever i click on "interactions" on one of my girls,because of it clicking any non-sexual interaction does nothing.

  2. Interesting game you're creating here.
    I hope you have intentions of adding more customization options to character creation.
    Specifically i would like to see darker skin tones for humans (yes, "black" people). The other races, especially demons, would benefit from a bit more variety as well. When i think of demons i picture more unnatural skin colors; red, blue, purple, black, or white skin. Hair seems to be limited to mostly feminine styles currently. Bald and the Striveworld equivalent to a buzz-cut would be good to see.

    Keep up the good work on your game. Looking forward to a solid implementation of a combat system.

  3. Larger Cat cocks are described as "hangs between your things." Should be 'thighs'.

    One of my slaves just gave birth, but I cannot recall ever seeing a notice of pregnancy, and frequently veiwing the info screen I never saw any indicator. Am I just missing seeing them, or is there somewhere else I should look? She was on Herbal contraceptives, so I could have saved a few coins or used a potion if I had known in advance.

    Just saw a slave in the guild for 4474 coins, highest seen yet by far. Better be special for that price, lol

    1. BTW, the parents were both Beastkin Wolf, the child was Halfkin Wolf, shouldn't that have been a Beastkin child?

      Delete
    2. Mother will have pregnancy mentioned at the bottom of her inspect fluff.
      Origins is a major factor on the slave's price actually (and their mental stats). Probably also maxed out beauty, few skills and rare race like dragonkin.
      I'll check on child race generation, but from the look of it, shouldn't be the issue.

      Delete
    3. Ah! My bad, just hadn't scrolled down far enough to see the pregnancy info.

  4. Possible Exploit

    When a Slave offers sex, normally it takes a second Energy point. BUT, if you use the last energy to offer slave a minor act, and then they offer to fuck, they still get the stress relief, and the sex occurs, even though there is no Energy available.
    The follow on act might need to check energy level?

    Has Cooking Job been fixed yet? They auto-shopping and reduced food consumption please my lazy ass... lol

    1. It should be. Make a separate save just in case.

      Delete
    2. v0.1.23 Cooking still kills the energy recovery.

      Hmm, made two copies of the save file. Turned on Cooking ans first end of day it died.

      Realized I didn't capture the error on the debug screen, I reloaded and this time I am 10 days in and cooking is working.
      ?confused?

      Delete
    3. as well, when cooking job is active the Global end of day report fails with this error.

      SCRIPT ERROR: _on_end_pressed: Invalid operands 'Object' and 'int' in operator '!='.
      At: res://files/scripts/Mansion.gd:278

      Taking the slave off the cooking job restored normal operations

      Delete
    4. Found the problem... will stealthfix it in few minutes.

      Delete
    5. OK, General report now works with Cooking active.
      However, still no Energy recovery, and Residents window doesn't update with slave still listed as away for training, even though the General Report says she came back home.

      Turning Cooking off instantly refreshed the Residents window and energy now is recovered.

    6. Same error as before? Try new game?

    7. fresh download, and new game, played fine with cooking on until day 39 when I went to return the human to the Mage Guild. Got this error

    8. Looks like you you sold or lost your different slave while your companion was lower on the list and game didn't update your companion number. Will fix in next version.

    9. Ah, yes. I had an older slave escape after a punishment room session. Middle of the list. The human was a new acquisition.

  6. is there a way to increase the beauty of slaves?? and can we have the starting slave to have high beauty?? perhaps add a system like freecities where at the start you can customize your starting slave with money or a point system

    1. You should be able to raise it with beauty mixture I believe. I will think about customization of it, but its still subject to rebalance.

      Delete
    2. where do i get the beauty mixture?? coz i have maxed the alchemy lab and still couldn't find it

    3. Oh, it seems I actually forgot to add a recipe for it or set it on sale... derp

  7. Hi, first off love your work! It's so rare to find a good porn game out there and you are one of the best! Second off is pregnancy in this latest release? I've yet to see any "So and So got pregnant" messages or have any characters be born? Thanks a lot for making such a fantastic game!

    1. Thank you :)
      Pregnancy is in there, but you'll only see it after some period. In next update headgirl will inform you on other slaves' pregnancies on the end day screen.

      Delete
    2. Pregnancy does indeed work, ran girls through birth, and return from accelerated aging.
      Although it did surprise me that the teen daughter returned wasn't a virgin and had apprentice Allure already :)

  10. I have seen a few cases when generated slaves are created with illegal skill levels.
    For example, on the same slave;
    Passive Trait - limits Management to Apprentice
    Skill - Management started at Journeyman

    Replies
    1. Assuming you can acquire traits at some point, you can explain it with that the skill level was reached before getting that trait.

  11. Trying to raise Sexual Proficiency to Journeyman on a level 11 slave.
    Training lists requirements as;
    Courage 40 - she has 52
    Charm 40 - she has 100
    Skillpoint 1 - she has 2
    Gold 300 - I have more than 4900

  12. oops, posted too quickly.

    I am assuming that Mage Order Assistant isn't in game yet?
    Attempting to assign a slave generated three errors. (Maybe due to not being in the guild yet? 112 days in and the Slavers have yet to generate a Human with Average or better appearance)

    SCRIPT ERROR: workline: Invalid get index 'assist' (on base: 'Dictionary').

  13. combat/hunting doesn't appear to raise confidence and studying in the library doesn't appear to raise wit.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hmm, slaves assigned to the farm are described as no longer being sentient, yet they also can steal food and cause unrest?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Noticed a bug - hunting through the portal got stuck on one type of engagement, a bear attack.

    I tried loading an earlier save, then went and encountered a lone wolf; reloaded current save, when I did every encounter became a lone wolf.

    I then reloaded the earlier save, encountered a lone girl, went and reloaded the current save, and now every encounter is a girl of varying race.

    If it helps, this started happening after I went to the sea - don't know if the bug was caused by that though. I also skipped a lot of encounters. Day 45.

  16. Are player character stats and skills a planned feature for later updates?

    Replies
    1. Kind of, but it will probably come much later and mostly will be focused on unlocking stuff and research. For now have a lot other stuff to care for.

  17. Survival skill is bugged:

    If you have a character with the survival skill as your companion and explore either the Elven Woods, Mystic Grove or Marsh, you can only encounter a bear attack. You'll be able to go past it because you spot the bear before it attacks like the survival skill is supposed to do, but it's a 100% chance of bear encounters only, so you can never find slaves to capture.
