Also, an update about when there should next be an update: I finished pretty much everything on my checklist, although I only have like ten achievements because I’m waiting to find the best spots for them to go. No sense going in all willy-nilly with it. Cash is implemented (and since it was mostly just deductions, I added a $500 a year increase to make sure that you didn’t constantly go negative), and the de-randomization choice will present at the beginning of Year One. Also, I think I have finally gotten through the pet event, which is easily the largest scene in the game and one of the most complex things I have yet done in ChoiceScript. It’s over 7,000 words all by its lonesome, but you won’t see too many per playthrough more than likely. I decided to pair it with just a short event about actually taking care of the pet, which I will hopefully finish soon, allowing me to upload everything to Dashingdon. This also means if you choose to get no pet you will breeze through Year Nine in mere moments. But I doubt many people with choose to do that.
Year Ten will also be large, more than likely. I have two events totally written, but not sure if one may not scoot back to Year Eleven. Right now I have people picking between a school play and a theme park visit, but I wonder if that will be an even split or if everyone will just want to do the play and leave all those poor theme park words unread.
