Art and Updates

And we're back with another update.  This time it's mainly focused on graphics, as lots of new ones have been added to the game as I work on scanning, cleaning up and posting my backlog of art.  Below the art links, you'll find the new game content additions listed as well.  As well, not shown among the thumbnails, we also have new art for Janice, Nadia, and the Kangaroo, all by Anymouse1968.


          

          

          

     


Stripes:
- German Shepherd: This guy's gotten a revision pretty much from the ground up.  You'll now encounter 'generic' GSDs as well as a 'special' one.  The latter will start showing intermitently after thefirst few fights.  He's that one dog who keeps hassling you - but now you or he can eventually put an end to it by securing the spot as top dog.  Lose/submit 3 times in a row and he'll take charge.  Win three times in a row and you can claim him as a companion or drive him off for good.  The companion version has only basic content at the moment, but more is planned.
- Graphics Issue: There'd been some instances of incorrect art appearing at times.  I think I've isolated the cause and patched it, but please keep an eye open if any creature art no longer appears when it should.
- Bovine: The milk-thirst has been tweaked to make it a little faster to wait out.  It still won't be easy, but it should be a bit better.

Wahn:
- Razorback Boar: There’s a new bara guy in the forest, burly and just a bit dominant. You can meet him in the starting event “Razorback Fury”, after that he’s a roaming opponent.
- Ryousei: The tiger now has repeatable scenes with Xerxes.
- Orcs: Chatting up the orc mob (as an orc warrior) allows you to join in for a hunting competition – bring in new breeder slaves to advance your standing in the tribe.

Writer For Hire update:
  • More Blanche - (1.5/6+) Stripes
  • Patreon: Alexandra meets G-Sheps - Stripes
  • More Hard Vore (0/10) - Stripes
  • Bonus Time: Bastet Scenes (2/5) - Wahn

Update Summary

There've been more scattered updates since the last posting.  I was holding out to make this report until getting one last thing ready, but I kept getting stuck with writer's block on it.  Eventually I swapped to another quick task and did that instead.

Here's what we've got new since the last time:

Stripes:
- Main Storyline: The last part of the Patreon voting, this one took an extra month so I could add some unique material to the end and have it continue both the Main Storyline 2 and Hospital Quest 2 paths.  This time, you're given the simple errand of going to talk with Dr. Medea at the Pediatrics Clinic to get her notes and findings on infected pregnancy.  While the task is mostly a tie-in to her existing requests, there is a special encounter with a different sort of scene available once you're done.  You will successfully complete the quest regardless of how the encounter with the pregnant panda goes, so you can participate or avoid the material as you prefer.
- Bobcat: A continuation of the Patreon voting from before, the Bobcat has been expanded to add a player victory blow job option, an infection heat and a variety of endings.  The heat comes with a compulsion to provide yourself for sexual relief to a random partner, though it's a set of generalized scenes this time.
- Gunbunny: Again with more from the Patreon vote, this creature has been expanded.  Player victory, infection and a wide range of endings have been added.  Several disparate factors will adjust these endings, so try them out from several runs if you want to get them all.  Being a gunbunny also provides a to-hit bonus with guns.
- Female Husky: Two new player victory scenes have been added, one for dominating and tying with her if you've got a knotted cock and the other for eating her out.  Because of these added options, she's been updated to a victory selection menu.
- Hard Vore: A subset added to the Vore Predator ability, there's now an option for gory vore material.  It is opt-in and can be activated via the vore menu or by accepting during a special 'first time' scene offering it.  There's four scenes at present, two of which are gender-driven.
- Shemale Smooth Collie: Some new material's been added to this creature, providing a pair of blow job scenes among player loss.  She too has been upgraded to a victory selection menu with options to ride her cock, provided you're sized to take it.
- Creature Gender Flagging: The adjustment to allow tracking the gender of the creature you most recently fought is largely complete.  There may still be some bugs and it's only seeing limited implementation at present, but this should open up several more possibilities in the future.
- Panda: The 'panda' infection's been adjusted to 'Panda', so old savewords won't accurately provide this infection.

If you've got a commission pending, please check the list below to make sure you're in there.

New Version Fixed

There'd been a small error when compiling the recent updates into the game and some of them were not rendered active because of this.  The issue has been corrected.  Download a fresh version of the game and you should be able to see it now.

As a note, the player victory option for a blow job from the Bobcat's currently blank and opting out of victory sex provides a non-descriptive placeholder message.  I'll tweak that in the morning.  The player loss and the other two victory options are still fine though.

Update Info

And here I'm back with another overdue blog post announcing all the new stuff that's been added to the game.  I'll get right to the announcements.

Stripes:
- Confident Sven: The Nordic snow leopard's been given a new alternate path where you help him build up some confidence.  This is done by successfully encouraging him to help you fight off the attacking Snow Leopard.  For the moment, this shuts down his interactions w/most NPCs, but those will be replaced/reworked to suit the new, less timid kitty.
- Dominick: Added a pair of beta-specific threesome scenes with a captured Female Husky or a female Pit Bull, available if they were the last one caught.
- Bobcat: There's a new critter in the RLD, a feline sexbot with a vibrator for a cock.  One of the picks from the recent Patreon voting.
- Gunbunny: Also from the recent Patreon poll, some gun-totting bunny girls have appeared in the HRD.  Watch out though.  They're packing a big surprise - and for once, we don't mean a cock.  No sex or infection yet.  Just lots of personalized alt-combat action.  NOTE: Will be active in a few hours of this posting.
- Chinchilla: Player victory sex (for males) is now available.
- Donkeywoman: Player victory sex (for males) is now available after a few wins.
- Batcubus: A new player-loss scene has has your cock getting sucked.  Player victory sex is now optional.  Also,outcomes for neuter players.
- Saber Kitty: Scenes tweaked and neuter outcomes added.
- Creature Gender Flagging: Prepwork on recording the gender of the creature you most recently fought has commenced.  This can then be used to make more interesting, detailed or gender specific generalized scenes for stuff like vore and UB as well as in other places.

Wahn:
- Tehuantl: Players can now choose if they want a male or female jaguar pet.  The choice is made in the victorious sexual encounter with him/her in the museum.
- Mul: A properly trained Mul can now be shared in a threesome with Boghrim.  The scene is in Boghrim’s sex menu.
- Eric/Carl: These two guys will run into each other in the library and you can observe what happens in a short walk-in event chain.  Includes some sexy times between Carl and cboy Eric.
- Misc: The various Y/N selection points in numerous scenes are now links, allowing easier gameplay.

Flash FS: Moving Forward

Greetings, once again! Blue Bishop here.

It’s been awhile since my last blog post, in that time I’ve been busy working away at the Flash version of Flexible Survival. A new iteration has been sent out to Patrons, primarily to add the infrastructure for NPCs and the interaction side of followers. Currently, the examples provided are just placeholders, and our original plan was to populate them with Dr. Matt’s content (Since Trevor Labs is currently the only other locale you can encounter), but there’s been a few… developments.

You’re also probably aware that Inform came out with a new version that resolves the filesize issue we were having, which was what set off this mad dash for a replacement. While this development certainly doesn’t mean the Flash version of FS is coming to a close, it does mean there’s been a bit of a shift in our plans.

Since we’re no longer tethered to the need for it to be a straight-up replacement, we can instead provide something new. Stripes and I have made the decision to tell a different story with the established setting for this version of FS. And while we don’t have much to reveal about it just yet, there are a few things we’d like to clarify right off the bat.

First off, the city and time period will be the same for Flash version as it is for the current, Inform version. The two stories will be happening in parallel, just with a different character and core plotline. Because of this, you can expect much of the same monsters and zones you’ve come to know in the original game. Similarly, some NPCs who are found in public spaces will still be around, though their interactions with and attitudes towards this new protagonist might be different.

NPCs relating to the main Dr. Matt/Mouse story thread, however, as well as any number of NPCs found in the various nooks and crannies of the world will remain absent to allow room for newer characters. There’s little need to have the exact same NPC in both versions unless there’s a good reason for it. We want this new protagonist to experience new elements of the city and its population.

-- That is not to say that all ancillary NPCs will be exempt from the transition, only that we default to their absence unless their original writer explicitly desires to carry them over. I should also you assure that development of the Flash version, once it hits Beta, won’t lead to us abandoning development of the Inform one in favour of it. Both will be supported in parallel.

That should be it, as far as big announcements regarding our ongoing development of the Flash FS is concerned. NPCs mark the last major system that needed to be introduced in our Alpha phase. From here, the focus is entirely on any lingering minor systems and major overhauls/content additions.

Right now our focus is completely revamping combat. We have some big plans for that! In any case, that should be everything for now. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Bonus Hour Polling

We're running a pair of polls in the forums right now as to what you'd like Wahn to work on for some bonus hour material.  There's one for male-centric material and one for female-centric material, each getting 5 hours worth of time devoted to them.  The options are listed in each thread, but there's a lot of variety in each.  As usual, you're allowed up to three selections and can alter your picks after the fact.  Both polls will be running until this coming Sunday at 6pm EST.

And We're Back!!!

Good news, everyone!  Flexible Survival is back and fully running once again.  Nearly two weeks ago, the new version of Inform (coding language/compiler) came out for Windows.  It then took about a week to get that patched to be able to run our massive game and a few days after that to get everything back in and tweaked, but we're up and running with all our pervy content once again.  At a basic estimate, we should be safe until our game doubles in size - we hope.

On top of reopening the locked content, because of the space issues, Wahn had been holding off on putting out several additions because we knew the update was forthcoming.  And once we were free of the space restriction, we both charged ahead into production and made several other additions as well.  So, in addition to having all the content back, we've also got a bunch of new stuff for you guys.

Stripes:
Dominick: The entirety of my content updates are branching off from this guy.
- Firstly, the Breederslut infection he induces now comes with a heat that can prompt a special sex scene with Dom guaranteed to knock you up.
- He's also got a new lap ride sex option and a random add-on to another sex scene when in Breederslut form.
- There's also the option, after several sessions with him, to be recruited into the role as beta to bring him more female canines - with recruitment scenes for the Female Husky, Pit Bull and Pink Poodle.  Be advised there are plans for an omega option with its own additional material to come later.
Images: While I've got a bunch more images from MFF that I'll be adding eventually, I do have a pair ready to go right now.  They are a rendition of the Megakitty by BushyCat and Dr. Medea by Candy.

Wahn:
Amy: The long-planned encounter of two resident huskies of the library finally happened. Watch Carl meet Amy, and learn an interesting fact about the two of them.
Orcs: You can now more fully turn the tables on Mul, one of the orc slaver brothers. Train him as your butt-slut until he comes to the library for a hard fucking all of his own.
Ryousei: The royal tiger companion got two new sex scenes, plus he’ll now have a reaction to the presence of Xerxes and Hayato if they are in the library.
Satyr Frat Party: The aftermath of the “Free Drink” event should now be open to everyone, no matter what shape or gender. Join the revels if a wild party! Drinking and sex, what more to want…  A satyress creature to roam the campus if you have sex with a female student while at that party - that's what!
Eric & Rane: There is now the possibility of a sexual encounter between (cboy) Eric and Rane, the blue oni. You’ll have to turn on the power in the library and bunker on first, though. Multiple scenes and a bit of storyline…
Images: New character images for Hayato, Harold, Valerie, Gabriel and the Homo Sapiens.

Other:
And as always, Strongbird's provided a massive number of little corrections, tweaks and typo fixes over the holidays that are all much appreciated.

Images - again: And another Patreon image with the Black Equinoid by Anymouse1968.
