Engine Work

Due to the fact that FS recently overtaxed the Inform engine once more, until we thankfully got a fix from the nice developers over there, the decision has been made to port FS to a new platform. Efforts have been started to put together a new version in the more timely engine Godot. For the foreseeable future, FS will still run in Inform and additional updates are coming out for that, but we've got people working on something new and shiny at the same time.


Alpha Husky: The encounter had its loss/submit scenes polished and overhauled. Sanity losses are now influenced by Psyche feats. There is also better clarity on the effect that losing or submitting to an alpha husky has on the player. Additionally, players with "Strong Psyche" are able to resist most 'bad endings'. Male players will experience less sanity drops and players with the 'Male Preferred' feat will be more resistant to infection.
Elstan: After he brings the player out of the oubliette for some fun at least once, the muscular werewolf becomes more receptive to direct advances. It is now possible to worship his muscles and body by making a move on him. This introduces a sex menu that will be expanded in future updates.
Greek Street: As a preparation of some work on the satyr fraternity, and to introduce additional frats as potential expansion points, Greek Street's description on the college campus has been adjusted. The PIG frat was relocated to the North of the Greek Street in the course of this, and the PAN frat was moved to the east.
Jett: Upon making an advance on the alpha werewolf after having finished the gift quest, he will take up on the offer. The scene that follows can be repeated afterwards from his newly introduced sex menu that will be expanded in future updates.
Moreau: The body shop has expanded its selection, allowing you to buy permanent fennec, naga and squid infections too now.
Mouse Nerd: The mouse nerd on the college campus has gained some nice new artwork that you can check out.
Wyvern Patriarch: The huge male wyvern will now react differently upon meeting the player in subsequent encounters depending on the previous fight's outcome with randomized dialogue lines. There are also three more additional ways of having one's way with the beast upon defeating him.

Bugfixes & Balance Patches

Alpha Husky (Variant Encounter): The MtF-focused variant of the Husky Alpha will now be properly deactivated upon winning. The correct description is also now ensured to always appear.
Birth Control Pills: The code for the effect of the pills has been corrected and should now allow future pregnancies after the effects wear off.
Generator Parts: Some wording corrections in the event.
Humanification: Being turned into a human by the use of Coleen's spray or in the 12 labors questline should now more thoroughly be applied to all parts of the player.
Jett: Tweaked some of his existing dialogue to make him more consistent with recent updates.
Tehuantl: Having sex with female Tehuantl should now show the female picture instead of the male picture for the kitty.
Wyatt: He will now properly knock up breedable players.
Wyatt: There shall no longer be any references to 'anal' in the female version of the domination scene.
Zoo Events: A small coding error in 'Zookeepers at Work' which made it impossible to choose option 4 has been fixed.
