Thursday (Progress Report), Update 0.5.1.10f and Patreon Update

I've changed the way Patreon works, or at least a couple of the goals. I've also sent messages via Patreon to those people that requested the random event reward, so check your messages!

I'm really tired of Mike giving people trouble, not going to lie. Mike is a buggy asshat. I've uploaded version 0.5.1.10f and that's the last one I'm doing. If he's SUPER BROKEN still, then I'll have him fixed in the next update. Really, the only thing that was broken was the fact that he wasn't leaving if you had sex with him as a non-futanari. The non-futanari content was also referencing futanari content (hooray copy-paste), so I fixed that as well.

As of RIGHT NOW, Mike is either 100% working forever and ever amen, or broken until the next update. He DOES work in testing though.

Update 0.5.1.10f

Today's stream is done. I added a karaoke machine to help you boost your music skill, up to a maximum of 40 (but only if your music skill preference is singing, more on that below), and it can also help your creativity up to ten. Once you can invite non-Mike NPCs to the apartment, you can sing with them.

There's long been a variable in the game that's been kind of behind the scenes, which determines your musical proclivity. If you play guitar a lot, you'll find it difficult to be a good singer, and if you sing a lot, you'll find that you can't really musically express yourself with the guitar. In the case of the guitar and the karaoke machine, if you use the guitar while your preference is set to singing, your music skill gain will be capped lower than if you had a preference for guitar. The opposite is true for the karaoke machine.

There's also a tracker going in the background that's keeping track of what kind of songs you play while busking or while using the karaoke machine. What's that for, you ask? Oh, you know. Things.

I also started added in a notebook, for boosting your creativity. You can write a diary, which will boost your creativity to a low cap (20). At any time, you can start writing stories, which you can name and describe. Stories will work kind of like painting: you'll build progress towards completion every time you sit down to work on it. However, stories take a lot longer than painting (paintings are complete in 4 sessions, writing can take up to 100 sessions if you're incredibly unlucky, but are more like 30-50 sessions on average), and when you're done, if you decide to sell them, it can take even longer to actually get paid, since it has to be published and whatnot.

You can also (if you have a non-zero music skill) use the notebook to write songs. As of right now, the busker side job is assumed to be singing cover songs, but with the notebook, you'll be able to do your own original compositions, which could mean a little more money. It could also mean some kind of recognition and a possible offer of some kind.

As of right now, there's a restriction of three stories and three songs at any one time. Stories will probably be stuck at 3, since they take so long to complete. Songs, on the other hand, can have lots of options, but you can only be actively writing 3 at any one time.

Also, I can't guarantee there will be a stream tomorrow, as that's the release day for XCOM 2. For anyone that doesn't know, XCOM is my favorite game series of all time, all the way back to the olden days of 1993, so that might take over my attention for the weekend.

  1. What are chances of there ever being a spell that adds skill points?

    1. Extremely low. Magic is intended to be a crutch, with a consequence for use. Getting skill points would have to be offset by a similar but equally weighty penalty, and there's not much that would be the equivalent of a skill point change.

  2. I think I perhaps found the showering when not exercising bug - when I used the thighmaster, then went onto the balcony and off, I went straight to showering.

    Also, thanks for the continued work!

  3. Would it be possible for you to implement some sort of reputation? Higher rep=more revenue. It could increase/decrease based on quality of work or over time.. Maybe even link it with the trait system. An exhibitionist for example could have the chance to rank up to known exhibitionist which would allow for some random events, such as a guy/girl would ask you to flash your boobs for them or something

    1. I actually have notes for a reputation system. Maybe I'll implement it in this update.

  5. Any Chance you can add more Breast sizes preferably bigger ones, and more clothing options?

  6. The Mike as non-futa sex scene indicates fingering and licking, but afterward makes references to your huge dick. Maybe more copy+paste clean up?

    I didn't realize you had recently updated the game, normally I check once every few months. Good to see you back in action, and I hope things have been going well.

  7. Mike only appears after day 65?

  8. Also get the above, you get the pop up choice of what parts to play with, then the scene makes references to your nonexistent junk, but supposedly huge junk. Was under the impression he wouldn't let you down there without it?

  11. I spotted a minor bug in the initial TG transformation sequence. After you answer the phone for the second time and Maria tells you to answer the door, when you right-click the front door, "Answer the Door" shows up twice. The first one lets Maria in and the second doesn't do anything.

    1. Probably the second, inactive one is the one that was set up to allow other visitors to the PC's home. The one that lets her in, I'd bet, is a relic from Maria being to only person who ever comes to your door.
