Bugs fixed, woo.
- Mike's call now works (tested and confirmed).
- Messed with some stuff with werewolves. Should no longer cause rapidly plummeting charisma.
- Changed the "Shy Girl" style so that, if you get it, you can't get any other style, as it does have qualifiers that could put it together with other styles but didn't lock them out before.
- Various other minor tweaks, not a lot worth mentioning.
I also went over the various Charisma changes for a while. Nothing really stood out as not matching up, so I'm not sure what's causing the occasional unreported drops.
Insofar as the "leaving the balcony sometimes makes you shower even though you didn't work out", thing, I still can't reproduce that, even with event logs that people have submitted. The way that works is that it checks if a property called "showered?" is set to no, and if it is, it sends you to the bathroom to shower. There's only a few things that trigger "showered?" to no, and most of them are working out. The only other one is if you had a lactation accident without the nursing bra, which will set it as well. Could that be the problem?

Anyway, with those bug fixes out of the way and the majority of stuff working as intended (I really need to add an "incomplete" page to this blog, don't I?), I've moved on to version 0.5.2. And the first thing I did was change the various tiers for skill reporting so that there's ten levels, and the levels themselves have thematically appropriate names (previously, there were nine levels, and while some were thematically appropriate, not all of them were). I did this because I was adding a new skill: Creativity.
Creativity is your basic creation skill. Singing music and playing the guitar, that's great and adds to your music skill. But writing a new song, or painting a picture, or writing a book, those are creativity-related. So expect new activities. You can buy an easel and paint a picture, maybe even sell it for cash. You'll be able to go to a painting class (maybe even with a friend!). Or maybe you can sit down with your guitar and write a song (and play that song for a friend!). Maybe write a love letter.
Or, you can find out that the more creative you are, the more vivid (read: varied) your dreams are. I wonder what would happen if you had strong magic, high creativity, high arousal, and lost yourself in a masturbation session? Oh wait, I know.
This is the LAST skill that will be in the game, for the record. No further skills will be added.
