The Renovation Release v1.09 (plus futa poll results!)

 


Hello everyone, we've got a big release for you this month and a lot to talk about too, so let's get started!

So first of all, the futa length poll. It wasn't forgotten (of course), but I have been taking some time to think about what it means, along with all the feedback we got in addition to the poll. The results of the poll itself were heavily skewed towards the "more futa" side, and the "Hung" option was the winner by a large margin.

I ran the numbers for pledge tier and extra votes, but it was the same winner.


We're definitely going to put more futa content into the game, and aim for the "Hung" level. But one thing we noticed is that we got a ton of comments saying that while the person loves futa stuff, they care more about futa NPCs, and much less about playing a futa character. This makes a lot of sense to me, futa characters are awesome best-of-both-worlds things. To that end, a lot of our focus on more futa content is going to be in the form of interactions with futa characters.

Pretty much everything can be made better, and that's definitely true for AW. I feel like in our rush to hit a "technically a complete game" 1.0 release that kept to our original schedule as much as possible, we left a lot of things that could be improved or added to just make the game better. And then shifting our focus immediately to the futa expansion, we sort of just ignored those things, which I think does the game as a whole a disservice. It doesn't help much to have a ton of new futa content, if the game you're experiencing it in doesn't improve.

To that end, we're going to be spending part of our time each month improving the basic game rather than just focusing on the expansion. The idea being, if the basic game is better, the expansion content will be more fun too. I've thought about different ways to do this, and different ways to add base content (female focused) without ignoring futa PCs. I've come up with a couple methods, which I think will help keep different aspects of the game integrated with each other, and also help keep a balance on our work. We've tried these ideas in our work for this release, so you can try it out and share your feedback on whether or not they work. :D

  1. Add events/scenarios that are somewhat universal but diverge based on whether the player character is a futa. Basically, so that being a futa pc adds more options or different outcomes, but overall it's content all types of characters can enjoy. In this release we have the Stud Finder Competition scenario (which is pretty awesome, I think!)
  2. Add new elements to the game that are missing or would improve gameplay, but use it as a chance to introduce new futa type content when possible, particularly futa NPCs and stories connected to them. In this release we have the new Pump gym. The gym was a missing element in the game, I feel, but we also used the opportunity to add a storyline with a hot futa gym bunny.

I believe that working on a mixture of expansion-specific content, dual purpose items like above, and general game improvements, we'll be in a better place to keep improving the game. And this isn't just a futa-only thing! These sorts of techniques can also be used with future expansion choices. For example: hu-cows, with new hu-cow mechanics, but also improving the base game with hu-cow characters and content.

As far as base game improvements go, those are going to be pretty wide ranging. From adding more content to needed areas like jobs and day-to-day life, to improving or adding game mechanics/content that make the standard 'game loop' more enjoyable. 

Please share your ideas with us on Discord! 

Being developers and constantly looking at the game, it can be really hard to see the forest for the trees. Your feedback helps us do better!

Personal Notes:

Just leaving a quick note to let everyone know that Besty and wife made it safely out of Russia. It's good to know that he's no longer in any danger!

Covid booster kicked my ass, but otherwise everyone is happy and healthy.

Anenn got a new fridge to keep his capybara treats in.

Change Log

Words: 2,940,614 (20,202,093 characters)
TypeScript: 153,518 lines
Images: about 3,500
Inventory: 165+ items, 113 home/furniture items.

  • Work on the prologues.
    • Futafied some of the initial reactions and explorations of the player's new body. 
      • ex: putting on a bikini in the morning, going in the hospital bathroom.
      • some initial scenes with Lily in the male story prologue
    • Edited and changed the writing in some parts of the Lily reveal scene to clarify things about Lily a little more.
  • Made some changes to the character action menu actions.
    • You can no longer do a "at home masturbation" outside of your house.
    • A new "public masturbation" action was added.
      • This is a placeholder for now, will take into account several factors along with a chance to get caught... fun.
    • You can no longer use breast pumps to pump your milk while you are away from home, because you aren't carrying such bulky things around with you.
      • The action button to pump milk will now default to hand milking when away from home.
      • You can still hand milk away from home since it requires no equipment, but milk expressed this way isn't collected for sale (your bulky canisters are at home too!)
    • Some other minor fixes.
  • Rate for brain damage accumulation compared to bimbo score increase has been adjusted.
    • Standard bimbo increases will now cause only 66.6% increase in brain damage score, rather than 1 to 1. (gaining 6 points to bimbo level will now increase brain damage by 4 points.)
      • Reminder: brain damage bad end threshold is well above 100, at a level determined by difficulty level.
    • Things that primarily cause brain damage (with a corresponding increase in bimbo level) are not effected, and still cause 2x the damage for each point of bimbo gain.
      • These items are: "Overly high arousal - brain damage", "Side effect of Titilator supplement.", and "Emergency Mental Treatment"
    • Bimbo-adding items that do not cause brain damage (such as attending certain churches or reading magazines) still doesn't cause any brain damage.
  • There is a now a bimbo guided meditation class held at the community pavilion near central park.
    • Look at the advertisement on the side of the pavilion building to unlock attending classes.
    • Classes are free and are held every day from 5 to 7pm, they last an hour.
    • Attending a class will increase your bimbo score by 10 points.
      • This class does NOT cause brain damage, it is purely safe hypnosis!
    • Our resident bimbo expert described the scenes as "That's hot ngl.."
  • There are two new onahole sex toys available at the Prude sex shop.
    • Obviously, onaholes can only be used by PCs with a cock, but we won't stop you from buying one even if you don't have one.
    • Using either onahole can be done from the sex toys section of the character actions menu.
    • The first is a pretty standard "Vacuum Onahole" similar to a certain manufacture's items from Japan.
      • Does what an onahole does...
      • significantly increases chance of masturbation success.
      • Increases satisfaction gain from masturbating with it.
      • Increases the cutoff for gaining satisfaction compared to normal masturbation.
    • The second toy is an automatic onahole, which is similar to devices such as the auto-blow, in that it does all the work for you.
      • Guaranteed to make you cum, even if you're hard-to-please.
      • Even better satisfaction gain and gain cap than the standard onahole.
      • Expensive as fuck at $269
      • Basically removes the pregnancy penalty from masturbating because all you have to do is hold it there and it does all the work. ;)
      • Comes with three cum preservation vials, which allow you to collect your ejaculation and keep it preserved and fresh for 7 days so you can use it later.
      • See the cum vial system entry below to learn more about this functionality.
      • Using it without a cum vial to fill has a humorous result.
  • New Cum Vial system added to the game.
    • This system allows you to collect your own semen for later use by using the auto-onahole to collect and preserve it for you. The system allows other player collection methods, and can be easily expanded to capture NPC cum if desired.
    • collects all the relevant semen data at the time of collection, volume, sperm count, motility, survival, mutations, etc.
      • Cum vials can only hold up to 10ml of semen.
    • The cum vials keep semen "just ejaculated" fresh for about 7 days. They are automatically removed from your inventory when they expire.
    • Collecting a cum vial from your auto-onahole automatically creates a new consumable inventory item.
      • Clicking on the description of the item also shows information about the vial/s you have filled (age and volume).
    • Using one of the cum vial consumables will crack open a vial and give you three choices on how to use it along with a minor scene for each.
      • Once a vial is open, the preservation ends, so you must use the vial right away.
      • Opening the vial causes a minor arousal bump due to the smell (higher if cum slut)
      • Option 1: Toss it - empty the vial and clean it so you can reuse it later. (Can't be performed if the player is a cum slut.)
      • Option 2: Drink it - provides the normal positive boosts from consuming cum, along with corresponding input to addiction system. (can remove withdraw, increase addiction, etc.) Cum sluts enjoy this more, of course.
      • Option 3: Creampie - pour your cum into your own pussy. You must be very aroused to perform this action.
        • This is some kind of selfcest, but it has been requested more than once. Also will be useful if we make NPC cum vials.
        • You CAN get pregnant this way, assuming both sides of your reproductive tract are fertile. 
        • Gives the normal positive mental/status boosts from both consuming cum and getting a creampie.
        • Making a baby this way is basically the worst type of incest genetically speaking... but we're not going to do anything about it... it's fantasy after all.
        • The inheritance engine that determines the various features of the child may derp a bit... only time will tell. It wasn't really designed for selfcest, but should work. Probably.
    • For now buying extra auto-onaholes won't get you more cum vials. The system is temporarily (simple flag) limited to 3. 
    • The plan is to allow these cum vials to be universally compatible with other forms of small semen storage like what is used for cooking and toys like the tiny monster.
      • This compatibility hasn't been added yet.
      • Items like the double-donger that use 1 liter canisters of semen won't be compatible... too big of a volume difference.
  • The Third Annual Stud Finder Competition scenario has been added to the game
    • This is a long scenario that is essentially a competition to find the best studs in Appletree, details can be discovered during the event.
    • The scenario can occur in June, Sol, July, or early August.
      • It will occur as soon as the player meets the starting conditions.
    • The first part is an interaction popup where the player discovers that they've been selected to participate as a judging assistant. 
      • The player accidentally agrees due to dubious methods.
      • This notice only occurs if the player is not pregnant (or has an open womb and meets the right criteria for twin-womb characters).
      • This popup essentially primes things for the main scenario to start.
    • Once you accept participation in the competition, you will have a window of time to go to city hall and cancel for free if you don't want to participate. 
      • Depending on timing this window could be very short, but should be at least 1 full day before the scenario can start.
    • The actual competition will start once player is in their fertile period within a few days of ovulation. 
      • This timing is purely coincidental as far as the story is concerned, of course...
      • You will be escorted by two Institute agents to the competition venue.
      • You will meet an official, and have several conversation options, most of which aren't exclusionary.
      • You can protest participating, and be given an option to leave as long as you are willing and able to pay the penalty fee. It's expensive.
    • If you have the right equipment, you can convince the official that you're actually supposed to be competing in the competition.
      • Requires external testicles of sufficient volume (20cc)
      • Penis of sufficient size (7 inches+, 1.8 inches diameter)
      • You will be rejected if you first ask about getting out of the competition.
      • Various rejection dialogs depending on what you're lacking.
      • Leads to a different route where you compete as a stud.
      • You cannot win the competition, but there are a ton of factors described and you can place differently.
    • Unless you quit or tricked your way out of it, you will have a medical evaluation.
      • This will nullify any hormonal birth control chemical you've built up from pills or patches.
      • A morning-after pill can boost your hormone levels back up to effective levels before you ovulate, but normal pills/patches won't have time.
      • IUDs will be removed, because they are illegal. You can insert another one after the competition if desired.
      • The only way to be 100% certain to avoid pregnancy is not to participate as a female.
    • Then you get fucked really good in a nice scene with a friendly futa.
    • Like the main story, the two paths have some complementary information.
  • Super Futification of Game Content:
    • Coop milking events.
    • Pregnancy events - (some heavy stuff)
    • Police drunk event
    • Police nudity event
    • Rapist encounter
    • Lady of the woods storyline
    • Hanna the drug dealer storyline
    • NPC interaction events
    • Pharmacist events
    • Some dating system events
  • NPC birth scenes got some new content as well as some futa variation.
  • There is a new gym called Pump Fitness in northwest downtown.
    • Costs a membership fee to join the gym (of course)
    • Working out in the gym is more effective than working out outside or at the small apartment workout room.
    • There is a new NPC that hangs out at the gym with some interactions.
      • Mia Cooper a futa fitness junkie.
    • More amazon futas are likely to be added in the future.
  • New activities and events at the "Bridge" location. (located on the world map, just east of Appletree)
    • Pick a peaceful spot and relax while watching the water go by.
      • Reduces stress.
    • Meet a fisherman that fishes regularly by the bridge.
      • Interactions with him can lead to giving a blowjob or even sex.
      • Why is he so into fishing?
      • What is he trying to catch?
  • The usual round of fixing reported bugs. Just some examples:
    • Bug where arousal wouldn't properly drop after masturbation was fixed.
    • Bug where buying a certain drug from Hanna would pay you instead of charge you.
    • Odd behavior of condom consumables, especially differences between futa and non-futa PC.


Thanks so much for all your support, and for making it all the way through this change log!

I hope to have an even nicer one for you next time ^_^

Erotically yours,

The Comeback Release - v1.08

 


Okay, I apologize for the pun.

It's called the comeback release because this month we've got a much more substantial release compared to the previous months. I won't lie, there's still a lot going on, but we were able to get more effort into the game and this release. Mechanics, lots of futa conversions, some unique futa content, bug fixes, and even a big futa expansion to the wardrobe paper doll and body portrait. I even did some "people on the streets" research to see how real women would react when it comes to childbirth and the player being involved. 

(I did not actually go to the streets, doing so seems like a good way to get arrested. Instead I asked my wife and some local friends :P)

The futa poll is pretty exciting so far. It's nice to see how people are reacting to this. It's very difficult to do kink-specific expansions because it's always going to end up "splitting the audience" A lot of people are less inclined to support AW financially when they know we're spending months working on an expansion surrounding a kink that isn't interesting to them. We've tried to add in non-futa content and improvements along the way, but we have had a noticeable drop in income while working on the futa expansion. It makes us really appreciate the people who have continued to support us even when futa isn't their thing.

For those that are concerned; we aren't going to let funding levels dictate how we approach our expansions. I personally believe that trying to chase income would just lead to a worse result, even if extra income does let us do more/hire out more work. Instead, we'll focus on making a good product, and trust everyone to know that even if what we're working on right now isn't your thing, we'll still be moving on to other expansions. There's a lot of things to be excited about, I'm personally really enthused about both transformatives and hucows, but I also think some more general (and shorter) expansions focusing on the core game will also be great.

I always include a bit of personal news, but I'll keep it short this time... basically life marches on. Everyone has things going on in their lives; good news and bad, tragedies and victories. We're not special... we're just living life like all of you. We're all really thankful that you've stuck with us, even when the times haven't been the best.

I know many of you have been concerned about Besty and the situation in Russia. With any luck, Besty and family will soon be in another (hopefully more stable) country. Things have been prepared, so it's mostly just waiting for the right time at this point. I'll be sure to share more details once things have been safely resolved.

On a more personal note...

It goes without saying--but I'm going to say it anyways--we really appreciate your support. I started all this because I wanted a faster-paced life simulator that had an exciting world to explore; basically to make the kind of game I wanted to play, that I just hadn't been able to find. Thanks to all of you, and the frankly awesome TF community, I've not only been able to keep doing that, but I've also been able to gather a team of likeminded people to keep making AW better and better. It's hard to express all of our gratitude for making it all possible. Thank you!

Change Log

Words: 2,898,293 (19,954,205 characters)
Code: 153,210 lines of TypeScript
Tears: +72

  • NPC fetus development has been adjusted to increase the speed of NPC pregnancies.
    • This will make it easier for a complete pregnancy to fit within the usual time span of the game. 
    • It's basically assumed that women would want to at least minimally take advantage of available treatments to speed up their pregnancy, so there IS an in-world basis for increased gestation speed besides the game design one.
    • A standard pregnancy should now take between 3 to 4 months of game time, depending on the NPC. (most will be closer to 4)
    • An additional cheat mode has been added to further reduce the duration of NPC pregnancies. It essentially doubles their gestation speed.
    • Note: fertility boosts also affect the length of pregnancy while they are active.
      • For NPCs, this is mostly limited to dosing them with drugs like heat.
  • The male story prologue has been partially expanded for futa content.
    • Presently this focuses on the "mutations" conversation with Lily in the bathroom.
    • Lily will discuss the various male mutations that the player may have.
    • There is also a section where Lily discusses the player's testicle situation, as well as makes comments comparing the size of the player's new penis with what they had as a man.
      • This is an early way to discover that the male story protagonist wasn't particularly well endowed.
    • The discussion contains a lot more "practical" information than the general descriptions in the mutation selection menu.
  • Also added a brief section if the player has the Fertility Goddess "mutation", regardless of whether they are a futa or not.
  • NPC birthing scenes are now implemented.
    • There are a variety of different results/interactions depending on the nature of your relationship with the NPC.
    • The results are largely split between whether you visit the hospital or not.
      • Friends, dating (and not your kids), and your kids without a relationship, each have a unique notification conversation after the NPC gives birth, either by text or phone call.
      • If you are in a significant relationship with the NPC you will go to the hospital to offer your support.
        • Your reaction to the news will vary based mostly on the paternity of the children and your relationship.
        • False paternity situations the player may get an uneasy feeling.
        • The PC will generally still try to support their partner even if the kids aren't theirs, though how they feel about it will change.
      • There are mechanics to alter the character of the birth for different difficulties based on the NPC's physiology, but currently only the "easy" childbirth is implemented. (all visits to the hospital will result in easy childbirth)
      • Writing childbirth scenes is hard, seriously. I also saw some shit when searching the interweb for images. Having experienced some births in-person with my kids... ugg, let's just leave it at that. :P
      • We will likely expand some of the writing to be more relationship-sensitive in the future, the setup is there, but more words are needed.
  • There were a lot of bug fixes this month, but as always bug eradication will be a continuing effort. Complexity makes it easier for bugs to happen.
    • There was some additional bugfixing support this month provided by xnzda (thanks!)
    • Some examples:
      • You can no longer take repeat doses of bovinex if you take them all in one session.
      • Clothing information popups will no longer be hidden behind dialog windows when viewing sections of your clothing inventory.
      • Brain damage is now displayed properly as a percentage instead of always being 0.
      • Cum addiction treatment will now work correctly
      • etc.
  • The wardrobe paper doll system has been expanded to be futa-compatible.
    • Will now properly display cock and or balls if the player has them.
    • many different hand-drawn clothing items were adjusted to reflect the player's package as appropriate.
      • for example, no balls hanging out of short shorts or panties.
    • I still have a strong urge to draw all the various clothing styles for the paper doll, so that at least every style is represented if not the unique colors. Or at least, expand some of the sections so more styles are represented, especially when it comes to lingerie and tops.
      • Takes time to do, but I think you guys would like it. Let me know what you think on Discord!
  • The player body portrait will now display futa genitalia when present.
    • Currently there is support for a variety of penis sizes.
    • We still need to create more overlays for larger testicle sizes.
  • All Surrogacy Center events are now futa compatible*.
  • The Tentacle Shop downtown are now futa compatible with some unique extra attention given to the player's additional equipment..
  • Final futafication of school events.
    • Mrs. Fubb's Parlor and Monster Tamer Studio is now fully futa compatible*.
  • All the player birth scenes have been made to be futa compatible*.
  • The Double Donger scenes are now futa compatible*.
  • Marriage proposal scenes (particularly the kinky ones) are now futa compatible*.
    • Wedding scenes still need to be futafied, this is just all the proposal variations.
  • Various lesbian tanning events are now futa compatible*.
    • Not so much 'lesbian' now that a cock is involved :P
  • The SIRE initiation event probability has been significantly reduced so that it will not occur so frequently in the case you put joining SIRE on hold.
*Futa Compatible: means that extra content for futa players dealing with their cock has been added to existing scenes, generally expanding them while leaving the flow/outcome of events generally the same. The amount of content added varies considerably based on the specific scenario, but usually adds up to a lot.

The Sunken Release - v1.07

 


It's been a hell of a month, almost as if the world has conspired to screw with our AW dev work. Or, someone just cursed us or something. This release isn't what I had planned, though there is a pretty decent amount of futa conversion. Our primary team is three people. We pay others on a freelance basis for extra writing or other things... but that's usually on a "when they feel like working" sort of schedule. Normally, with the three of us, some freelancers, and even the rare submission from a fan, we can still get a solid release packed with new content and changes.

This month didn't work out like that.

On my end, I finally managed to finish the craziness and overtime at the day job, which only took a week out of this dev cycle. But then I caught a cold from my son, which knocked me on my ass, and when I finally started recovering my whyf was kind enough to give me a different cold. I suspect the long period of overwork probably fucked over my immune system. Then my parents showed up out of nowhere and we still had a lot to do to recover from the basement flood in the spring. At least all of that is finally taken care of, and the kids are in their bedrooms again. But my development time was totally wiped out. Because I'm the one that usually integrates submitted content and works with freelancers, that got left out too.

Besty got sick, and then was able to work for a while on bug fixing, but the last two weeks were vacation time he had scheduled a while back. Everyone deserves a break, and no way would I try to get in the way of his trip anyway, so we only got maybe a week of work out of him. Anenn was able to do the most work out of all of us, but even he ended up with the flu, which knocked him out for a while.

Usually when shit happens, the unaffected ones cover for the affected person and it works out. This month it was everyone. It doesn't help that we're getting antsy to start a new expansion soon. Futa offspring is the last interesting thing to work on, and then it's mostly conversion of random content in the game. At least things like jobs and schooling has been converted, so there aren't really any major areas where a futa cock is ignored.

I'll probably do a poll on futa progress, along with an explanation of what is left to do and options on what else we can do. The poll will basically see if we want to move on after the existing content conversion, or if we want to add more unique futa-centric content before moving to the next expansion. 

Thanks with your patience with us, and thanks for your support.

  • Bug fixes courtesy of Besty, you can always check mantis to report a bug or view our progress on outstanding bugs at http://www.aw-wiki.com/mbt
    • You do require an account to use our mantis bug tracker, but it's easy to create.
    • We don't share information about our followers/subscribers/users/players/etc. with anyone, ever
    • We won't even email you unless you chose to receive email updates on a bug, or in the rare case we need to ask a question/get more info to try and fix it.
    • Reporting bugs via Mantis does make it a lot easier for us to keep track of them and get them fixed, compared to discord reports.
  • All the jobs (including the Oldest Profession pseudo job) are now futa compatible!
    • The Bureaucratic Corps job at the institute is now futa compatible.
    • The Maid Pouffiasse job is now futa compatible.
    • Character counts for the various jobs have been updated
      • Click the content button in the job selection menu to view.
  • Most of the school event content has been made futa compatible. 
    • Dancercise
    • Oldest Profession
    • Maid Pouffiasse
    • Deep Drill
    • Freak Dance
    • Mrs. Fubb's Parlor
  • The "futa compatible" stuff we've been talking about over the past releases contains a mix of basic futa modifications as well as more involved futa-specific variations on existing events. 
    • Not just a simple "ignore the cock unless necessary to keep from breaking immersion" thing.
    • Usually doesn't include futa-only events... but there are a few that have snuck in here or there.
  • Added a get out of jail free card to the game in the form of an erotic art exhibit at the university in the gov't district.
    • Visit the exhibit to get a mental unfucking similar to the emergency one offered by Dr. Lector, but without the normal negatives of therapy with him. 
    • This mental unfucking can only be used once per character/game. Afterward viewing the gallery will act as a normal meditation session to reduce stress and  anger.
    • The art in the gallery itself is a collection of uncensored AW release images, along with a couple others. 

For the next release I hope to have much of the childbirth scenes for a player father done. I'd also like to look into interaction with such children at the creche, and possibly an expansion of scenes available to interact with the children in the creche. You should definitely be able to breastfeed your kids, maybe even some volunteer breastfeeding?

Besty will be back from his vacation this week, though Anenn is taking a vacation this week... Things should be close enough to normal for a nice solid release with plenty of features for 1.08 in Spooktober.

The Barista Release - v1.06

 


Hello everyone, it's that time again... Release Day!

This time, while we did still work on expanding futa compatibility around the game, we also added a good deal of content/things that aren't futa-specific. Some general improvements that I think are good for the game. Thanks to Krow, we also got to add a big content addition to the Fecundate Division job, which can always use some more pregnancy hijinks!

Outside of AW, this has been a rough month for me. I don't talk about it much outside of Discord (though it's certainly no secret) but I have a day job, and generally work on AW in the evenings and on weekends. This is how I pay my own bills and still pay everyone else working full or part time for Arcanist Codeworks. I work in public service for the government, I guess in what you'd call the "public safety" arena. I'm something of an IT/Sys Admin middleman, making sure data flows to the experts in different agencies, and that their warnings about hazards to life and property get back to the public. There's been a lot of upheaval, new servers, new architecture, etc... so I've just been run ragged with work. I've got to make sure the whole crazy project is a success, because I don't want anyone to get hurt because I made a mistake.

I mention all this in the name of transparency, because I didn't get as much done this month as I wanted to. Of course, all the other guys were still on the job so it's still a solid release... but birth scenes with NPCs didn't make it in. Hopefully everything will have finished (successfully!) in the next couple weeks, and I can go back to business as usual!

Thanks for your support, we couldn't do it without you!

The Condom Release - v1.05 Change Log

 


Hello everyone, it's that time again... Release Day!

We've got plenty of cool stuff in this release, and even some things for non-futa players as well. I think the most exciting thing revolves around NPC pregnancy, from the new inter-NPC insemination system, to getting pregnant with the player's kid. That said, we've also got more refinement of the sex system, and plenty more content as well. The Poll Riders job got a lot of new content, with several new futa-centric scenes that can get you tips.


Because condom sabotage and general impregnation-related craziness/sneaky shit is a sexy and accepted part of living in the world of Accidental Woman, it's probably a good idea to have a general disclaimer about this sort of thing. Doing reproductive activities without your partner's consent is wrong. Whether it's stealing sperm, sabotaging condoms/birth control, or stealthing, it's not okay to do this without your partner's consent.

On the other hand, these sorts of things can be really fun roleplay opportunities if you talk about them beforehand. If hormonal birth control is used, or her cycle is reliable enough to determine safe days, you can have all sorts of fun with condom sabotage and/or not pulling out, without the long-term consequences. I think risky sex is really good sex, and I think you can get a lot of the way there by pretending it's risky.

Starting another reproductive tangent... I knew semen contained estrogen, but it was only during the last month that I learned just how much it contains (between 0.1 and 0.2mg/ml). It seems that the estrogen helps to trigger ovulation, and is part of why actual ovulation rates vary pretty significantly between women trying to get pregnant, and those using condoms. (It also explains some of the skin benefits reported from semen!) I've done such a ridiculous amount of research for this game, so it was pretty fun to learn something new!

I feel like I talked about enough random shit, so let's get on with the change log!

Thanks for your support, AW wouldn't be possible without you!

    • Check fertility status of all female NPCs
    • Several commands to inseminate, induce ovulation, grow fetuses, etc.

  • Tweak to job mod ingest code to allow higher salaries for job mods based on job respectability level.

      • Represents sex between the generated NPCs that is assumed to be happening to the 90K other people in town as well.
