Update 4/26

Did I get all of Genevieve's dates done? No. But I got all of her daytime dating stuff done. Except hiking. Ran out of steam for that.

Update ahoy.

Update 4/26

Major Updates
- You can now call Genevieve and go out on dates with her (make sure to call by Early Afternoon, as her night-time dating is not yet implemented).

Minor Updates
- Any time the game strips you naked, it will no longer hang. This should also resolve any problems with clothes getting stuck in inventory, and possibly constantly decreasing non-natural charisma.
- Changed the way the game handles the beach, so you shouldn't see clothes getting stuck there.
- Added a new outfit, Undefined, for it you leave the house wearing clothes that are not part of an established outfit. You can never choose the Undefined outfit, but this should fix any potential problems that the new outfit system might cause.
- Streamlined all kinds of stuff behind the scenes that no one will ever see, probably.

You'll probably notice that a lot of stuff got left out of this update. Turns out dating sucks the big one, so whenever I decide to update it, I shouldn't plan on doing anything else. The next update will be significantly more substantial, because I need a break before I go back to dating.

  1. I dont't know if it's just me, but every time I load a saved game, the shoes the character wore are gone with the winds. The game can reload them, as long as I chose the last worn shoes option, but as soon as I select an another one, it can never be reused again, the game doesn't offer it up. The strange thing is, I can see it in the shoe rack, even can wear it as long as I'm at home, but as soon as I try to leave, this particular piece of equipment in not an option. I already lost about four shoes this way.

    Oh, by the way, if I chose the sneakers, the previously wore shoes (the one that can't be chosen) are still on the character, but so is the sneakers...

    PS: I don't think this is your bug report stash, but couldn't find it, ho here it is...

  2. Has the 'seduction' portion actually been implemented yet? I haven't been able to get her to not reject the kiss and such.

    1. Yes it has, but she's not going to be seduced right off the bat. You need to become her friend before she'll be ready for something more. Genevieve hates people who are too forward.

    2. Odd. I've gone on like, a half-billion dates with her, and she actually says, in french, in the roller blading dialog, "I think I love you", but I still can't get it to work.

    3. Just like real people, sometimes she says something without meaning it.

      If you want to begin a romantic relationship with her, you really have to build her friendship up to pretty high levels. I'm probably going to include some kind of dialogue that tracks what your relationship status is. For the record, your friendship needs to be greater than 80, and you can get, at most, 4 points from a date. When she gives you her phone number, that sets you at 20.

      The easiest way to raise friendship is to invite her out to lunch, at the bistro, and if she talks about the chicken sandwich, then tell her she probably doesn't want it. At the end of the date, pay for it all. That will get you at guaranteed 3-4 friendship points each time.

  3. I can call Genevieve and most of the options work... but how do you actually go to meet her up? Even if I choose to go to mall I can't find her there (other then her usual spot). And at the end of the day it says I stood her up.

    1. ...you need to choose the "Go on a date" option from the front door, then the "Meet Genevieve" option.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the tip. I guess my old save game didn't give me that exact option at the front door.

  4. The "go to work" option permanently disappears when you have to pay rent.

  5. With the stripper shoes after work they go in the locker instead of the closet, is this supposed to happen or not?

    1. That's supposed to happen. The closet will be phased out eventually.

  6. Not sure if its just me but I haven't gotten any notification for a few of the styles that I tried. I made sure had the requirements for them but nothing when I leave. I did get the Liberian once and that was it.

  7. bug with testing item - Set For Next Promotion

  8. Just wondering, but is the guy you nude model with going to be relationshipable?

  9. i can't get the front door option to work. what's up?

  10. Think I found a bug

    When I go to set an outfit, the game does not remember my underwear. I find this odd, but it is repeatable. I do not remember noticing this with 4/12, so I think it's new with this update. But I could be delusional.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Which outfit, and which underwear?

      Delete
    2. it might be that you need to put a tampon in, i know the system won't put underwear on if you haven't used one before dressing, and you don't automatically use one, you have to do that manually

      Delete
    3. Op here. The bug was with the starting undies, the black lace bra, and the white corset, in the tank top, the dress with jacked, the elegant dress, and the two piece black dress

  11. I dont remember correctly but is the body morph spell(dont remember the exact name) functional on her? I remember it mentioned

  12. I don't want to complain, but to be honest, I am a little disappointed with the cut content. You are doing a great job , but are we going to have to wait another two to three weeks to be an internet reporter?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. About two weeks. Maybe a little less, but that's what I'm aiming for.

      Delete
  13. Is it just me, or have restore and startup times gotten really really long? Like, 15 seconds+ to restore?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. your computer using a SSD? i noticed its restore times take longer on a computer with a SSD as opposed to spinning disk

      Delete
    2. Nope. Good ol' mechanical disk. And it pegs one CPU core.

      Delete
    3. lol mechinical, if it pegs ONE cpu core thats probably the problem, and becides, its now a 44meg game that is TEXT only, ... thats a lot of text, so even I would expect some form of slowdown in the RAGS system to process that. so its probably not just you, i do notice its slower on my laptop compared to my desktop PC
      wich is comparing a dual core Celeron to an i7-965
      so yeh there is load speed difference there

  14. just a little FYI, in the maid job, i have played three different characters, and each time the cleaning supplies are used up, they don't reappear in the mall. and then i stand up two clients, because of it.

    1. and, it doesn't take the appointment off, so it happens daily, and my rep drops faster than a lead ball in an empty swimming pool

      Delete
    2. Supplies are refilled from the cleaning supplies themselves. You don't need to rebuy them at the mall.

      Delete
    3. thanks, i had to hunt them out, i thought they went in the bathroom, but instead, they are in the front closet with the swimsuits. the only reason i ever get in there is when winter comes, and i need to toggle the coat. so i didn't realize they were in there

  15. The cocoa butter, when applied to the strech marks caused by pregnancy, they keep applying natural charisma, when I applied it I had a natural charisma of around 35 and about a month in, I had a natural chrisma of 92, and I only had a peircing to the ear, so it should not be 92...

  16. Is it possible that the outfit I wear on dates affects whether I'm able to call her? It seems like I'm constantly getting the voicemail response when I call her after a few dates.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, actually. You have to pay attention to what she says and what you do. If you manage to piss her off, she won't take your calls for a bit while your relationship gets repaired over time. What you wear, what you say, whether or not you pay for the date...everything factors in to how much she likes you.

      So don't, for example, wear a gown to the video arcade.

      Delete
    2. Thanks! I think I've got the hang of it now.

  17. Hey!

    Don't know if it's just me but in my game, the char got hand wraps after I set the work outfit. Never bought them. Can take them off. But even if I save the work outfit without them... as soon as I click on get dressed - work... VoilĂ ! - they're back.

    Just thought I let you know.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's not just that... loads of clothes appear in closet with right click option to buy them as if they were in mall (for instance: flirty clothes, slutty secretary outfit, club clothes).

    ReplyDelete

    1. They appear at the apartment closet, with an option to buy them, just like they are in mall. I do believe it happens after few visits to the beach.
      I will note if any other clothes appear, so far only these + hand wraps have appeared.

      Delete
  19. For what it's worth, this version seems to have constantly INCREASING natural charisma.

    At least one thing that I can tell does it - going out, in the rain, in the slutty secretary outfit with no bra, gives a +4(?) bonus to non-natural charisma (due to the see-through top). Which never goes away when you dry off. And gives an additional +4 every time you head outside in the rain.

    There's at least one more thing doing it too - still going up after I grew out of the shirt and retired it. Can't tell what it is. Don't really mind though :)

  21. Lactation seems to be broken. I can never get it going for more than two time blocks before it dries up, and pregnancy doesn't get it going either. I think that maybe the scaling on the reductions is too high.

  22. Clothes seem to be getting stuck in the nines locker possibly due to worn outfit deviating from planned outfit.

    1. Your clothes should never really leave your inventory for any length of time...but I'll look into it.

  23. It appears once that at 30 weeks pregnant, maternity clothing descriptions default to early pregnancy descriptions.

    1. Yeah, that's actually kind of incomplete. It'll be done in the next update.

  24. You really need to set an upper limit on Geneiveve not picking up the phone because I haven't been able to do anything with her for a month+ which is absurd.

  25. Bug?

    Not sure if it´s a bug or it´s intentional for testing phase, but whenever you call for using vacation days (green folder) you get payment. The problem is that you can use the command unlimited times in the same time slot.

    Question

    As far as I go, Genivere now kisses my character whenever they say goodbay to each other. What is the highest relationship status?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Bug noted.

      That's pretty much as high as her relationship status will go, if she's kissing you. It'll alter some stuff during the dates, though, like what's she's wearing, and what she does.

  26. An interesting thing: If you don't have any mony for the rent (0$), and you go for your landlord (I tried it with Jim, but I don't think, it matters) and go all in (sex for a month), the game came to a halt, and don't go anywhere from there, and doesn't appear any more option or consequence. It seems, there is a bug there, and the possibility of a pissed-poor character is ignored...

    1. Hm, might not be sending the character back to the foyer. Noted.

  27. I think there may be a bug within the secretary job. When the opportunity to schmooze came up, I simply acted friendly and later on I checked the bulletin board and there was posts about the euphemism for sex and 'personal interviews' and with him and eventually got the offer for the personal secretary. So not sure if this is a bug or he just wants to put it in me cause I was friendly

  28. was wondering, do tips at the salon affect your relationship with Geneiveve?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm curious, why is it that in Fen's Bar if I choose the looking for a date option, there is a great number of "you don't see anyone..."
    The curious thing is, the time doesn't pass by, so if I'm looking for a date about six time, the time is still in the same... slot. There will be other content, that may happen during these "you don't see anyone...", or what? Because if there is no plan for it, then I don't see the need to click so many times, if the end result will bee the same...

  30. At Maria's second assignment, the helping with the adept seems broken. She said, she would leave some contact info about the target, but there is nothing there. This could be because I didn't choose the "touch the artifact" path? Or the event is simply not developed?

    ReplyDelete
  31. There is a problem with the Asian Fetish trait. Either it doesn't lower the arousal at all, or there is a conflict with the Slut trait, because every time the character pick an asian guy, the arousal lowers, but only by 30 points. The Asian Fetish is supposed to lower an extra 10 percent, but that is not present.

  32. A suggestion: It's obvious, that drinking during pregnancy usually doesn't help. It could have serious consequences, like spontanius abortion, phisical deformation, mental damages, etc. So the drinking in the bar maybe could affect the fetus too... Just a small idea...

  34. I don't think the werewolf thing is working fully anymore?
    In the 4/26 version, I got bit a few days into May. Got the dreams for a few weeks, and the initial message turning into a full wolf. After that ... no further switches, no strength going up or down, nothing like I think I remember from a much earlier build. And I played well into July.

  35. Not sure if this has come up for anyone else... but I went out to lunch with Genevieve one day, except I forgot to hit the get dressed button. So, showed up to lunch in Platform Boots... Just Platform Boots. It was like nothing out of the ordinary happened.

  36. So, I think I figured out what's going on with the Beach making outfits unwearable, but stuck in inventory. I'd picked my "hot librarian" outfit, changed a few things manually, to try to trigger "Femme Fatale", then gone to the beach and back. Suddenly, I'm back in the "hot librarian" outfit, and everything not part of said outfit was still in inventory and unwearable (cycling through other outfits saved some of the items, as they were part of those outfits).
    I'm guessing you've been using the saved outfit as a shortcut for getting dressed when leaving the beach. Is it possible to switch to a system more like the Nines, where you have a temp outfit slot that saves whatever you arrived in?
