Update 8/30: Transformation Overhaul

Yay, it's done.

BIG NOTE: This update DOES use the new RAGS 2.4.0.0 update. You can download the suite for free from here.

Major Changes:
- Catgirl, cowgirl, succubus, dragon and werewolf have all been completely overhauled to have additional traits and effects. The full list of effects would take far too long to update, so I'm gonna be lazy for now and not bother.
- Wings now allow you to fly to specific destinations once per day. Some destinations are not available (such as work locations) because it would screw up the time intervals and you wouldn't be able to work. So in the interests of not creating bugs, for now at least, you can't fly to those places.
- Dragons and Succubi have specific wing iterations that DO NOT show morality the way feathered wings do (yet). Also, succubi cannot fly: their wings are too small.
- Robots can now install upgrades by buying the toolkit (only after completing the robot TF). Note that I forgot to finish the descriptions for a lot of the steps of the upgrades, BUT the upgrades themselves will work: just keep using the Continue Working action until it's no longer available.

Minor Changes:
- A variety of stuff here and there. Nothing major, but you might notice some changes.

Bugfixes:
- A lot of stuff. Everything that was reported in the last major update was tested and re-tested, and fixed when I could reproduce it. I'm sure the new stuff will introduce new bugs, but that's life.

Other Things:
- High Succubus TF IS in the game, but the EFFECTS of the TF are not. It was either that or wings, and I figure more people will see wings. Next update.

You can download the new version here. As always, old saves are not compatible with new versions.

  1. I've been looking forward to the High Succubus TF for awhile now so it's a shame that you couldn't complete it for this update, but for what it's worth I think you do incredible work and I hope you continue to develop cursed whenever you can.

  2. Glory Be! It's been ages since we had a new version to play with. I'm excited for the new robot content, it is definitely my favorite TF.

  3. Technical question. Just downloaded the new version and only got a document named Cursen 8-30.rag
    Do I have to download any special program or what?

    1. Cursed is created using the rags system, you'll need that before you can play the game. A link to the latest version of rags is at the top of this post.

  5. Still having troubles with the cigarettes. Sometimes they'll only let you examine the box. This wouldn't be so bad if a transformation wasn't tied to them...

    1. "Sometimes"? Need more information.

      Delete
    2. I think it's tied to other transformation items... I believe that whenever you get a single point towards any other transformation, the dragon transformation is cut off, even if you haven't actually changed at all toward any of the other transformations.

  6. im having an issue where my characters speech patter seem to be locked in cat-girr and cow-girl speech patterns, as when i go to the bar my character has Mm at the beginning of certain sentances and ends other ones with the word: nya

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Here is a perfect example of teh aformentioned issue:

      "It is a little loud, nya," you agree, "Mmaybe we should go somewhere that's a little more quiet...like your place, perhaps?"

      Delete
    2. I'm having this trouble too... I've used the growth inducer a couple times and the lithe pill once, but that shouldn't be enough to trigger speech patterns.

      Delete
    3. I'm too experiencing the same problem as guys above - my character speaks in the catgirl pattern though I didn't gave her anything that would even trigger the cat TF.

      Delete
    4. Huh...that's not cool. Is it ONLY that line, or is it a lot of lines?

      Delete
    5. nyaaaaaa nyaaaa, getting it all over the place too haha, nya. im starting to think my character has mental issues... though with all the other stuff going, I'd probably lose a screw here or there too.

      Delete
    6. I am a fully transformed Dragon girl and was talking to Genevieve. My character: "I don't like to come here usually," you tell her. "People are just so loud, NYA. It's like they forget that the people they're talking to are right next to them, and then everyone starts talking over each other, and everyone gets louder...ugh, it gives me a headache."
      Capitalized the nya to draw attention. Odd thing though, is that it didn't do anything before I saved and exited the game, but picking back up a day later and I get one in the first conversation I have.

      Delete
    7. Same issue here... accidentally used that tea ONCE and immediately followed it with the cleansing draft.
      So me TF should be at 0% and yet I *still* have that damn speech addition

  7. What happens if you have the Submissive trait and you turn into a succubus?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You become a submissive succubus.

      Delete
    2. but... becomming a sucubus has a gain that gives you the Dominant trait.... how does that work out?

      Delete
    3. There's a check. If you have the Submissive trait when you become a succubus, you keep it and Dominant isn't added. If you don't, you get the Dominant trait.

      Delete
    4. nifty, thanks for the info, been boggling my mind with the possible paradox that might make, btw, do you have any plans of adding Switch?

      Delete
    5. IIRC a Switch are someone who enjoys both sides of the fence (being both Submissive and Dominant at the same time) basically being on both sides of an S&M gives them equal pleasure, might be i have the name for it wrong though, as im not really into the whole BDSM stuff.

      speaking of dominant/Submissive, if your submissive and do the top tier secretary job you still get a message about how submissive stuf suck during one of the job events, which TBH seems a bit... wierd

      Delete
  8. I know that Rags can be a pain in the ass, especially between versions, and I love every time I see an update come out. But I do have one thing to ask. Is there anyway you could have it so we could export our current relationship status with Genevieve? Or maybe add her to the test item? Honestly everything else is easy enough to get back/up to except her right now. I know it should require effort with her, but after 4 or 5 times of starting from scratch it does get rough heh.

  9. Any plans on going through with that Webcam feature you mentioned a while back?

    That sounded really interesting and I'd love to see it implemented, as I usually play the business career path and would like more opportunities to "show my stuff."

    1. Plans, yes. But it's in the future. There's other things that need to be worked on right now.

  10. How do you start the high succubus TF?

  11. Charisma still seems to be messed up.

    Natural Charisma: 35
    Non-natural Charisma: 100
    Total Charisma: 85

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nope, that's as intended. You can increase natural and non-natural charisma up to 100, but only 50 points apply to actual charisma (ie you can look as good as possible, but if you're ugly/unconfident, then covering things up will only go so far).

      Delete
  12. Hm... When are you supposed to get the new Catgirl traits? I've trained myself to a full Catgirl, but the only trait I picked up was the "Heat" one. Are the rest of them invisible?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Okay, I see "Special Actions" and "Catnap" options when I right-click my character, but I got no announcement about receiving them, and they're not mentioned anywhere else in my stats. =\

      I'm also guessing that "Catnap" is supposed to be a sub-action of "Special Actions", right?

      Delete
    2. I think I forgot to activate the "Unique Traits" action I spent a couple of hours coding. Yaaaaay.

  13. ok im at my wits end here, where do you get the toolkit to upgrade yourself when you go robot? ive emptied (literally) the mall and it aint there, ive tried all other loctions sans the Lab, no good, is there any further transformations after waking up and doing a diagnostics instead of your usual habit and as of such i haven't triggered yet that causes it or is it just a bug with the unlock?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It would appear that, despite my efforts to make sure it ended up in the right store, the toolkit did not actually make it into the update as a buyable item. Which is, of course, annoying.

      I'll fix it in the bugfix update.

      Delete
  14. Browse the internet is broken. It has no message and gives deception gains with no skill point cost. Also is there a preferred method for bug reporting or is this it?

  15. The wolf necklace isn't working right. You wear it, you get attacked, but nothing ever happens. Also for some reason after a 2nd playthrough I was able to smoke about 2 Komono cigs before suddenly just being able to examine the pack.

    Replies
    1. It was stated before, that if you initiate some kind of transformation, you can't become a werewolf.

      Delete
    2. I should probably remove the necklace once a TF is initiated...

  16. I noticed that the Drug seller no longer offers Bag of special tea (bag of feminine spice tea). I don't know if this removal was on purpose or is a bug.

    1. Try buying a few other things first.
      For some reason it'll only show up after purchasing something else. Not sure about the specifics, but it's usually there by my second or third time encountering him.

      Delete
    2. I got him several times and bought enough to get his number. Still wasn't seeing it. It is just not showing up. Before this update it was always available from the start.

      Delete
    3. The bag of Special Tea because of it's effects won't be in until after the "other" special effect is allowed to go active. (So after the 15th I think it is.

      Delete
    4. Above is correct. Feminine Tea increases your fertility, but since you're unfertile for the first two weeks of the game, it's not available during that time.

      Delete
  17. I believe I came across a bug preventing further use of the Komodo Cigarettes. If you light up a cigarette, then go to sleep before the cigarette is finished, you will not be given the option to smoke any more. no matter how long you wait.

    1. I think I hit that same bug too

  18. I don't know why, but since the last patch I can not run the Rags suite, the player nor the designer don't result in anything. I have reinstalled it several times both form the .msi and .exe but it changes nothing. Reinstalled and repaired the .net framework and I don't know what else may be the problem.

    1. You should ask the guy who made RAGS what the problem might be. I just use the engine.

  19. Soooo... what does this mean for the changeover from the suspicion system to the guilt system? has that allready happened or will going out in public with these new forms at the higher levels still incur getting hauled off by the boys in the white coats if you haven't boned up on illusion magic?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. While I don't think it's been completely replaced yet, it seems that A-Man was kind enough to remove the Suspicion system for transformations. Been working as a Catgirl without hiding anything, and no message about people staring at my "odd features," let alone white-coat-men.

      Delete
    2. In the previous build, after I completed my Succubus transformation, there was a comment in my appearance about how no one seemed to be freaked out by my unnatural parts, or attracted to my lust inducing form.
      I believe he removed the men in the white coat a while ago, as my last few plays have all involved Succubus TF, and only the first did I use magic to hide it.

      Delete
    3. Suspicion has been removed. It'll be replaced with the Guilt and Punishment system not this update, but next update.

  20. There is a bug with the cleaning system. It isn't updating the cleanliness level after you clean but does when you go to sleep. This is without cleaning supplies. If you have the supplies it updates immediately. There is a bug with owning stripper outfits as well. If you put them on you can't take them off unless you are at the strip club. It says you don't feel comfortable taking it off here. They also don't have a wear slot. Also swimming encounters seem to be missing. I can't verify that they are and that I haven't been ridiculously unlucky but after at least 50 attempts it does seem likely. Suntan Lotion doesn't take any cash when you buy it either. Oh and also when you go for exercise if you aren't wearing underwear with your current outfit it gives you the not wearing underwear message even if you have exercise set to wear the sports bra. This is outside. Inside seems to work fine.

    1. The cleaning bug seems to be after I got the neat freak trait and then cleaned to can eat off the floor. The next time it dropped down to pretty clean and I cleaned it started doing that.

    2. Guess the swimming thing was just terrible luck the first time through. Played another game and have gotten all the encounters pretty quickly.

  21. You know what I'd like to see? A vampire TF- though, I do feel like I remember reading AnonymousMan having a problem with them or something. Or, was that Fenoxo?

  23. for some reason dragons can menstruate, however this may have come about because i completed dragon TF before the first interaction with Maria and asked "how functional is my equipment"

    it was quite amusing ... who would go near a menstruating dragon?

    1. TFs are not intended to be completed before you talk to Maria, so that's what's causing the problem. I might have to remove TF items until after day 17...

  24. After I exercise on the Yoga Mat in the morning, it takes me to the bathroom automatically. I do not know if this is a big or not, though it does mess me up when I'm trying to click through my 'usual' day rapidly.

    1. This is a feature added a while back. After exercising, when you leave the balcony, you automatically go shower, which takes you to the bathroom.

      Unless you mean actually using the Yoga Mat is taking you to the bathroom, in which case it's not something I've experienced. ^^;

  25. "Last used shoes" are always the Sneakers, even if I haven't used them since that first Friday night.

    When going out jogging, the sports bra seems to be its very own layer. First game, this wasn't an issue as I got modest B-cups, but Maria couldn't believe I like red hair *and* black hair (I really do!) and zapped them up to ample Cs.

    Now, if I jog without the sports bra it hurts, but with sports bra and sweatsuit set to my exercise outfit if I don't put other underwear on first I don't get the painful bouncing message but *do* get the blushing about lack of underwear thing. Surely a sports bra and boyshorts count as underwear. They don't count as clothes by themselves, and they've got to be one or the other.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your clothes are hanging a little loose on you, though they still fit. Still, if you intend to keep losing weight, you may want to get your clothes tailored to fit you.
    You cannot wear the medium heels. You will need to remove the medium heels first.

    As you head in to your apartment, you take off your medium heels and put them on the shoe rack.

  27. I've found another problem... When you lactate enough, you get this message:

    "You feel a little weak this morning. It takes you a while to figure out that your body, constantly producing milk, needs corresponding body mass to draw from. Also known as: you're so thin that it's unhealthy for you."

    Even with diet set to hearty, it's not enough to overcome this... Is there supposed to be a fifth option for food?

    1. Hmm...I'll have to take a look at that one.

  28. What am I missing to get the new Succubus changes? I got one up to fully transformed, but was still full on lesbian, and was not forced into sex at greater then 75 arousal. Is there some additional event needed?

    1. I would also like to know that.

      I do get a message that I become more powerful after I have sex, Is the High TF based to that?

    2. To be honest, I haven't tried undergoing the futanari transformation path so I'm wondering, do the combination of your clothes and penis size affect any sort of interaction with NPCs (wearing tight/revealing clothing with a large penis makes NPCs recognize that the player has a visible bulge)? Also, is adding balls growth in the game still on your priority list?

      Do you have any plans on expanding the effects of the different clothing styles? Perhaps adding or modifying current NPC encounters to acknowledge whatever the player is using? I think the clothing styles is a big part of the game, it's one of the outlets where the player can express/define what kind of woman he wants to play as and that it should go beyond stat effects which seem too general since they are affected by a host of other things.

      I think body shape and bust size should play larger roles in NPC interactions as well. Having a body shape and bust size within different ranges could attract/repel different NPCs and present different sexual scenarios (some like DFC, some are chubby chasers, etc.). Since that's probably too demanding, maybe we can just assume that all NPCs are both potentially attracted and disgusted to whatever body shape or bust size the player currently has and all you have to do is add in bits of dialogue between existing ones acknowledging their attraction to the player's shape upon meeting him (and in the ensuing sexual encounter, if any) if the charisma check passes and their disgust if the charisma check fails. This kind of system could be used to address my point about the different clothing styles as well.

    3. There are a few skill increasing actions which take away skill points even if you have already reached your max. Playing the guitar and wearing the microdress out both do. I think there are more but I haven't been able to confirm them yet.

      You can still get the slave/mistress date interaction with Laura at the bar even if you have the submissive and slave traits.

      Jim will accept the have sex or sex for a month offers even if you have already gone through the sex for a month offer with him.

  29. All footwear except sneakers disappear from shoe options list when I reload the game, and all the software options have disappeared from the "use computer" list. I can't re-buy them, because the software says I already own it and the shoes aren't in the shops now that I own them. They're there if I "search shoes," including one pair with an option to buy, but I can't put them on to go out.

    I've lost dildo panties twice, once because the bra no longer fit due to pregnancy and I threw them away, and once when I used the inflatable dildo while wearing them and they just completely vanished from the game.

    Would love to have more places to find and visit around the city, like another bar, the strip club for non-employees, a fetish party venue or BDSM dungeon, the university dorms, the football team's changing rooms ...
