Smells + Writer for Hire + 3 Requests Fulfilled

"What an incredible smell you've discovered."

I've made an update to the old smell feature thanks to some help from mirumu and a last minute save by NukuV. I spent hours putting smells to most objects, people and things the player can find in the game. Sniffing about will even sometimes give you a clue. Some scents change as an NPC changes over time.

As well, NukuV has offered to let me join in on the writer for hire action. I'll take the same rate as him ($15/hr). If anyone would like to me to work on something or write new content, send the funds to NukuV and we'll split it 50/50. Same general rules as with the other offer:
  • Buy some time and I'll put it to an idea or project of your choice. It can be expanding on old stuff or something new.
  • More money means more time means a more elaborate end product.
  • Something too specific or that would negatively impact gameplay may be rejected. Other ideas can be discussed, but I reserve the right in the end to refund a request for any reason.
  • I won't do work on the Stables quest, as that's someone else's project and I want to give them an opportunity to complete it.
  • When making a request, email NukuV the info or message me on the forum board with details. Please specify if you want either of us specifically for your request, otherwise we'll be sharing the workload.
  • Do not put any request details in the donation message through the payment site. Adult content makes them upset.
I look forward to helping with the fundraising on this project.

Update 3/1: Sandra and Coleen interaction request completed. Trixie tweaked to allow old codes to active the new content.
Update 3/1 Part 2: New pet request completed. She can be found at the park. Addition: New pet functions with Lovers Bench event.
Update 3/1 Part 3: There's some wayward skunk girls in the High Rise District chasing someone. What will you do? Another request done.

Write More Please!

I'm following Fenoxo's lead on this. I want to get some more monies, some for myself, some for the server upgrade project.
 So here's how it works!
  • Donations of $15 and up allow you to request I work on a specific part of the game for 1 hour per $15, up to 8 hours per person max.
  • Requests like “More feline stuff” or “Ratslut expansion” or “more merits” are ok.
  • Over specific requests like “I want to capture a husky girl and marry them and have a house” are likely be rejected. 
  •  I reserve the right to reject and refund a request for any reason. 
  • When donating, be sure to put in an email, then email me from that email with what you're hoping to see. 
  • Half of all request donations goes to the server, the other half, to annoying bills.

I should probably note, email is

  • 120$ - Slutrats(2.5/8)
  • 52$ - Skunk(0/3)
  • 30$ - Detailed Companion(preferably insect)(2/2) -- Stripes
  • 60$ - Sandra and Colleen Interaction/Changes(4/4) -- Stripes
  • 265$ - Total(8.5/16)

Web Upgrade Update

As it turns, my business partner has a serviceable web host. The wiki was moved there and is now performing much faster!

So does that mean the upgrade's off? Heck no! The machine, while performing quite well, is also more than a little old. Rather than pay a yearly fee, I would like to throw in and eventually get a new server assembled.

As an update, you guys have already been great. We have 706$ towards the goal.
Progress: 706/800$

Web Upgrade

I'd like to upgrade the server that the forum, wiki, and the game files are situated on. To do this, with a happy godaddy coupon I have for 20% off, it will run about 300$ for a year.

Can we do that? I don't have the out of pocket to pull it together, but with your(all of you) help, we can do this. Click on the donate button on the right. When we hit 300 bucks, I'll put in the order and get to upgrading.

Thanks in advance!

Three New Critters + More + More Again

After some muddling around trying to figure out what I would work on, I managed to plow ahead and have created three new creatures for the game. There's some funny business going on at the State Fair. There are some big hooters at the Hospital. At the zoo, you'll find some big, horny guys at the Zoo. Now that I think about it, there's one male, one female and one herm creature in this batch. Something for everyone. Have fun. :)

Update 2/27:
Siren: As requested, the Siren and his eggy habits have been adapted over from the multi-player. Beware the Siren's song! As I tried a new mechanic with this creature, please let me know how the power balance is.

Update 2/27 Part 2:
Two more creatures were added to the State Fair to boost its roster of creatures. One is another unusual critter - not quite my thing, but I expect some people will dig it. The other is a more standard suggestion someone made. Now up to 7 critters, it should be more interesting there, if a little extra-weirder than before I started all this... which is saying a lot. :)

Finally, you can do salvage missions from the web to earn uncommon salvage and reward tokens, and we have several new areas to explore and play in. For roleplayers, roleplaying now offers up reward tokens as you RP, no grind required.

Imports: Clockwork Foxes, Margay, Killer Whale & Cerberus

With the help of Nuku's auto-translator, we've imported over the clockwork foxes and the margay from the multi-player game. I've spruced them up and everything, so they're ready to play with the players.
Clockwork Foxes: These foxes come in guy and girl varieties randomly, though you'll only get one or the other if you ban a group. They'll switch you to the opposite gender unless you have a Male/Female pref set.
Margays: Just be aware, these new kitties are out for some particularly kinky, UB fun. You have been warned. :)

Update 2/21:
Killer Whale: The Killer Whale has been ported over as well.
Wiki: A bunch more content has been added to the single-player Wiki, with all the monsters put in and at least some rough work on the locations.

Update 2/22:
Cerberus: The Cerberus has been adapted from the multi-player version and is now live. Again, I get an unexpected surprise trait from a ported creature, this time a tail cock. That's okay though, I have a little more experience with those. :)

Candy ♥ Sven ♥ Endings ♥ Diego? ♥ Victory Sex!

For those who have been eagerly awaiting it, I've pushed myself into completing the interactions for Sven and Candy. The two will now end up playing together shortly after completing Sven's transition into being your playful kitty pet. There are six different threesome scenes (one with two ends) as well as a chance to catch the coon making his move on the kitty if you're lucky enough. I should have Sven's endings up soon as well.

As well, check out this lovely pic of Candy that Hickory did up. It was a significant factor in my getting this update completed over the last few days.

Update 2/13:
Sven's Endings:
I've finally put these together for the patient snowmeow. There are several interactions and special outcomes when the player succumbs as specific creatures. Have lots of fun experimenting to find them all. Hint: They're all kitties. :)
Diego: Inspired by a suggestion on the boards, I've also put in a pair of new Diego-related events you can run into in the city. These let the play witness a couple of pranks done by the trickster.

Update 2/15:
Victory Sex: Some of the old critters have been updated with victory sex players based on libido. These five have received an update: Herm Hyena**, Messy Pig*, Ashen Breeder**, Painted Wolf Herm and Small Feline.
* male/herm pig cock only       ** male/herm only
