Quick Progress Report

Just a quick update: All is well with coding the pregnancy system. No promises as to when it will be released but I'll be working on it somewhat heavily Sunday as I will likely have a good chunk of time to do so (and I have a desire to scratch that programmer's itch). If things go perfectly (which is doubtful) it's possible I could have a new build for Sunday, though I'd wager more on mid-week / slightly later for the next build. Real life has been interfering with my coding but it hasn't been totally in the way, I've been making small steps every night (some nights VERY small steps :P) to get this update rolling out for you guys.


  1. RL is overrated.
    you don't need that :P

  2. I am curious about some means to report bugs. I know I could report them here, but I'm not sure what is the preferred method. Perhaps you could edit the blog's headline, so there could be a bug report button there, or whatever...

    So, I just wanted to report a bug. After selecting the Male prostitute option in the brothel, and playing as a female without any male gentitals, I get the following text after selecting the fuck option:

    "You lack any sort of defined sexual position. This confers neither a bonus nor a penalty to any sex related skills or arousal.(Your arousal has increased by 2!)

    (Gyro arousal has increased by 20!)

    Gyro spreads his legs and slowly slides a flinger along his slit before spreading the petals of his flower, inviting you inside. You gently push cock into his wet cunt.

    With each thrust into your partner's wet cunt he cries out in pleasure, driving his completely wild"

    I tried with other positions too, with the same result. I don't think this was the intended result...

  3. Running .52 on 7 and I get this when I try to finish character creation. I tried reinstalling powerpack and 4.0, but its stays the same.

    System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array.

  4. any news as to when the pregnancy update will be added?

    1. I know it's taking me a bit of time, but things are still moving forward :) Just busy with stuff like work. The system is in place, just need an initial event to trigger it. Working on a new area (the Inn) as well to give the game a bit of new content.

      A new enemy has been programmed and implemented as well so it's still coming together albeit slowly.

  5. If this is about bugs then it is worth mentioning the seduction ability's modifyer is reduced by 10 eatch time you change location.

    Apart from that i'm enjoying this.

  6. Could someone shed some light on how to get rid of the equipment bug? Using Windows 7 x64 SP1 and I experience the bug both on 0.45a and 0.52a. Much appreciated.

  7. just curious, which month sunday?

    1. Yeah, I know everyone wants an update :D I'm still working on it though, just really slowly :( I need to stop saying stuff like, "there will be an update soon" and simply just post an update when it's done.

      I really do make a little progress virtually everyday. My main problem right now I guess is that I have a rather large picture for what I want in this update and I'm working on scattered pieces at a time. All of the systems related to the next update are actually done, but the problem is that it's difficult for me to get motivated lately to write a lot of the content for these events. I just go in these moods I guess, don't know how to really describe it :P

      There are just times when I churn out a lot of work related to the game (even if it may not seem it as sometimes it's a lot to do with the game's code) over a short period (sometimes dedicating over 20 hours in a week) and then other times when I just can spare only 15 minutes or a half hour before I need to move on to other things (friends, relationships, gaming, etc. :P)

      I've never lost interest though, and don't plan on doing so anytime soon. If anything, the game overall has been growing rapidly, but definitely in spurts.

      To maybe put things into perspective:

      When the game first came out for it's first alpha, it had a total of 67 text files (events and location descriptions) associated with it. It also was comprised of 53 images.

      Now about a year and a half later the game has 575 text files (Events and descriptions) and 141 images associated with it. The game has roughly expanded five or six times in size (if you get rid of the sex system text files) and has nearly tripled in the number of images contained within over 18 months this game has been in development and these numbers don't count unfinished stuff that's being worked on still :P

    2. well i just feared you were considering an abortion of your pregnancy :P

      ah, in case you need to speed up, just use those items you coded to speed up pregnancy, you don't really need to complete the full cycle :D

    3. Yeah well, that's why you work on it in increments in the form of updates. You don't need to have big updates as much as regular ones--look at CoC and how much he's been able to accomplish while working on the sly with a family. That being said though, you do owe your followers some sense of progression. Granted, you're not being paid and have no legal obligations, people don't have much of a reason to follow you if you have the 'it'll get done when it'll get done mentality'. Set aside an hour a day and make it a routine, instead of of having 3-4 sessions. I don't know about you, but I absolutely get burnt out playing video games, or anything else for that matter, for 3-4 hours straight. Otherwise, if you feel you can't commit yourself to this game and site, you might as well wrap it up and call it quits because I doubt this is benefiting to your general well-being in any sort of way.

    4. ^ While true, I already do pretty much what you've stated (though sometimes it's only 15 - 30 minutes :P). I guess one reason why lately there are no small(er) updates is because a lot of it is coding related, such as putting a system in play like pregnancy.

      The good news I guess is that there aren't a ton of systems left to implement (off the top of my head: tinkering in full, ability for NPCs to move in, home improvements, and establishing relationships) so once I'm done with all of those at that point it will be solely content generation.

      Don't worry though, I'm not saying I'm going to be working on all of those before an update :P

  8. Don't give up, Tacoking! :D

  9. hope all is going well, and that you are having a better week than me lol. anyway i love your game so take your time its worth it man. good luck

    1. It's going quite well, still working on putting a lot together. Today I worked on an enemy that reverses a lot of your transformations which I had been planning for awhile and finished it. (why is that good?! So you can transform again :P)

      I also worked on making an event that will trigger some minor transformations (time delayed though) to test out how that will work for future transformations like curses.

      Finally I added a self-titfucking event someone suggested earlier :D

      So in short a big update looms on the horizon but I won't give a day, I'll just post it as soon as it's ready :)
