FS News - July 2023



Hi everyone, this is Wahn again with the Flexible Survival News for what was written/added during July 2023.



For those who want to support further development of Flexible Survival, we do have a Patreon set up. Reward options include voting on polls for choosing content additions, as well as character artwork or even added content of your choice every month.



As a security in case anything might happen to the FS Patreon account, we now also have a Subscribestar account. If you want to support further development of Flexible Survival, why not become a subscriber there.

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.


Altus: Leave the gyr-wolf gryphon without sex for too long, and he may become desperate (and a little more pliable to not being in control). (Currently only oral scenes, but penetrative sex will come soon.) [Prometheus]
Bernard: As usual, Bernard has built up quite a sweat and you may now encounter him while showering. This will give you the chance to talk to him and potentially get your hands/face on his towel briefly. [Prometheus]
Darius: Our dear Dalmatian has got a new image to his name, this one for when you have him blissed out on his sofa. Further, the options of what you can do with him have been expanded, giving you several new fun things to try. (Some require equipment you can get from Lisa in the porn store.) [Wahn]
Davies: The "start" of the husky infection in the soldier squad event has got some new artwork to her name, reflecting Davies's looks and expressions in how it plays out. Further pictures with various clothes are prepared for happier times to come in the future.
Hazel: A strange sight in the city, you may encounter an uninfected human fleeing from a group of orc slavers. Fortunately for her, her salvation is at hand. [Prometheus]
Hunger/Thirst Visibility: The code for eating and drinking has been updated, giving you extra status message about losing hunger/thirst points. Accidental overshoots into negative values should also be a thing of the past. [Wahn]
Jett: The werewolf brute has now received a new artwork to show off his respectable size in all its splendor. Furthermore, he has received a bit of an overhaul, including a review of his already existing content. You can choose to pleasure the alpha right at his throne with a couple of scenes, and gain access to the more intimate scenes after "gifting" him. Currently, he has gained 3 additional sex scenes accessible right after meeting him. The "gift" quest will only unlock after achieving the right amount of loyalty through sex. Finally, alpha muskyness has been dramatically increased, watch out for your sanity levels! [Gherod]
Raymond: A new mental mouse guy that's seen you around and fallen in love. Do you want to return his feelings? Search for "Yours Forever" to meet him. [Voidsnaps]
Solariel: A female angel determined to protect people, especially Hazel, Solariel may join you after the dragon egg that you were given hatches. [Prometheus]
Vincent: The red fox has gotten a new walk-in event in his room up on the 2nd floor of the library. Provided you've built enough loyalty with him, he'll invite you to hang out, with a number of fun options like drinking, smoking and... doing other things together. (Note: Requires the event where he met the dealer outside the library to be completed.) [Wahn]

Bugfixes & Balance Patches

Candy: He will now only mention Carl in an event if Carl actually has been recruited.
Colleen: Fixed some mentions of Colleen not being recognised as having transformed.
Daphne: Some issues that were preventing all of Daphne's content from playing have been fixed.
Diego: A bugfix rule has been added to make sure that Diego's collar is not marked as worn if the player does not have it in their inventory.
Fightoutcome Fix: A number of ancient fights that defaulted to fleeing due to outdated code have been updated. Hopefully event fights will work as intended now. (If you encounter anything odd still, please report this on the FS discord.)
Jimmy: Jimmy's shower scene with Sturm should hopefully work again.
Karen: The alternate path to recruiting Karen should now work.
Lazaros: Now compatible with importing, for those of you with ongoing saves!
Orc Raid: A small typo prevented the picture of all three orc brothers together from showing at the start of the raid, this has been fixed now.

Upcoming/In the Works

These are projects and commissions that our writers are committed to, something for you to look forward for the future.

Altus: Penetrative sex scenes and interaction with other library NPCs. [Prometheus]
Angelo: The latin lover of the Satyr frat will get some new content soon. [Wahn]
Bastet: A new expansion of Bastet's content is planned. [Wahn]
Carl: A rework for Carl is in the works, to update him to the current realities of the soldier squad event. [Wahn]
Colleen: More for Colleen after she has transformed while remaining sane. [Prometheus]
Gwen: The option to de-suucubise Gwen, as well as her return from her mission much earlier than expected. [Prometheus]
J'Reth: More interaction with his KnK group such as reaction if J'Reth is female. [Prometheus]
Swamps: A brand new area with new enemies! Will start off relatively small, but should become larger over time! Commissions available if you have a specific idea! [Voidsnaps]
Urik: A "dominant daddy" scene for Urik towards the player is in the works. [Wahn]
