Deadline for current update: Rest of Mari one night soon(explicit stuff, plus a few things I didn’t include in the previous one)
Deadline for the rest in this segment: Varies. March, in small parts.

Okay, less busy again.

Thanks! Always nice to hear new people enjoying it. :slight_smile:

I’m currently making the romance stuff. There will be 4 major romances(Carrington, Stillwater, Mouse, Mari Badr). Additionally from 0-6 minor ones, not sure about those yet.

For the most part they’ll take the form of a one night stand(and after-game-sequences), and have references here and there otherwise, as well as various flirty/romantic dialogue options across the game.

So far only the Mari Badr version is mostly complete, and will be entirely complete(aside from the end) sometime this week.

Currently they’ve been placed at somewhere around 2/3 of the game(aka where the current version stops :smiley: ), in a public gala.

Also, thanks for the typo, I’ll fix it for the next update.

Hopefully my actions will speak louder than words this weekend.

Holy crap I think if I haven’t mistaken I still owe @Tiavals a DA of Stillwater’s sis :sob::sob::sob: forgive me life’s been harsh, but worry not i’ll try to post her DA by the end of the month :heart_hands::face_holding_back_tears:

Hey, I owe everyone an update! I think I can forgive your GRIEVOUS slight just this once. :wink:

Life is indeed harsh at times, and never for a second think you owe me anything even if you’ve mentioned it here. Of course I’d be happy to see more fanart, but if it causes you any stress or anxiety, prioritize other things. I of all people should know that “promises” and “deadlines” don’t always pan out the way one might hope. :slight_smile:

Next week. :roll_eyes:

Lack of progress is due to a very poor excuse I’ll tell once I upload the update. No use saying it now since it’s on-going. To think it’s almost been two months of this. There goes the “good start to a year of hard-work” I suppose. Still, I’ll try to turn things around once the update is out. As usual. :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks for playing it! Always nice to hear people liking it. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’ll definitely think of a better way for posting daily stuff after this. Perhaps a concrete amount of what I’ve done or something. Like “X words at the moment, Y done today”. Of course, that doesn’t directly translate into final numbers but it’s probably more interesting than the current void of information.

Sigh, looks like I’ll need a deadline after all due to screwing up my routine with my foolishness. :unamused:

Sunday it is.

Deadline for current update: Rest of Mari one night tomorrow(explicit stuff, plus a few things I didn’t include in the previous one)

Alright, it’s done. Deadline really helped a lot this time. Funny how it can be a good motivator, or a crushing anxiety inducer. :stuck_out_tongue:

Didn’t have enough time to test everything, which means I’ll do it tomorrow. It’s particularly important this time since I want to make sure the censorship options I’ve implemented work the way they should from the get-go.

The idea is that everyone who plays through the segment should only see content they’re comfortable with(and given that there are some wild options in there that won’t be to everyone’s taste, it’s a realistic concern). As such, it’s really important to have honest feedback on it tomorrow and whether the censorship system works or not.

Testing wise the only way to for me to make sure it works properly is to go through it manually, since it’s not a coding “issue” but a content one. Which means a few more hours of non-tired brain activity, and that means not now. :smiley:

Thus, one final tomorrow for this update. :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s taken way too long, especially since the update was essentially finished back in January already. Still, I learned a lot and could test a few interesting ways to construct scenes in some unusual ways. Plus, I got a lot of writing practice on a very different style than I normally use, which may come in handy at some point, even when writing “normal” scenes.

Anyway, I hope there aren’t too many problems with the contents. As I’ve said a zillion times, it’s foreign territory for me in many ways. Feedback will be much appreciated(both on quality and appropriateness), and I’ll be setting up the new thread on the Adult subforum for the update where I’ll be posting the usual quality polls. But that’ll have to wait for tomorrow.

Hoo-boy, I knew testing would be a few hours of work but not this many. :smiley:

It’s going to take another day. Yeah, I know, final tomorrow and all, but gotta do it right. :slight_smile:

Mostly just replacing written words with procedural words that change depending on the chosen options(aka ${TermOne}), and some minor changes to make parts more “universal”, but I did have to rewrite several parts of a way-too-elaborate *gosub that I had put in. And it wasn’t the code, but the text since I am an idiot and wanted it to be a generic “fits all” type of text, which made it way harder and more time consuming that it had a right to be. Fortunately I didn’t really have to go through the “game” to see it once I realized it, which saved a lot of time since I could just check the relevant lines.

In retrospect I probably would’ve saved more time if I had just copy-pasted the texts and edited them to fit each sub-variant, but why do that when I can do the more complicated, less efficient method instead? :smiley:

A valuable lesson was learned, which is this: Don’t use it in the future for anything, it doesn’t work like you want it to. Better to just copy-paste and edit stuff instead. :stuck_out_tongue: (but that bloats the word count in a fake way which I kinda despise)

Anyway, tomorrow. For realizies this time.

I said wild, not depraved. :stuck_out_tongue:

Update Today.

Includes: Complete version of Mari Badr one night stand scene. (95,000 in game text, previously 35,000)

Whew, testing was way more arduous than I thought, but it’s done now. Too tired to make the post on the other forum, so I’ll leave it for tomorrow. (it’ll include the usual polls and massive explanations and so on. Thus, feedback in that thread, not here)

Still, you can play the new update now if you’re curious. As far as I saw, there aren’t any problems with it. The one thing to keep in mind is this: Set your censorship details accordingly. If you see ANYTHING that you didn’t want to see, please post about it(tomorrow on the other thread I’ll be making), since the idea is that no one would have to see content they’re not into, if all works well. The more extreme ends of the scenes are likely to be particularly loathsome if you run into them without trying to.

Anyway, short version as to why the last two weeks were such a slow time for me is… I started playing Helldivers 2. Awful idea, but I was “pressured” into it by my friends, who don’t play anything all that often, so I couldn’t really refuse. :smiley:

Fact is, it’s a “seasonal” game that people will play for a while and then get tired of it until enough new stuff has appeared, which means it’s a limited time affair and it’s clearly already at a lower intensity right now, which is good. More time for Cyberpolice. :slight_smile:

Anyway, enjoy the update if possible, if not please have criticism ready for when I post the other thread so I can get as much info on what went wrong. As I’ve said a million times, this kind of content is new to me in many ways, so be understanding if possible. Usually I know exactly what I want and how to write it, here neither is really true.

Deadline for the rest in this segment: Varies. March for Stillwater, April for Mouse and Carrington.

PS Don’t post anything related to the new parts here since it’s against forum rules as it’s adult content, wait for the other thread. (well, you can post generic and vague comments or stuff like that of course, you get the point :smiley: )
