When I started working on TiTS, the “Creature” data type, descriptor functions, and appearance screen were some of the first things to get cobbled together (along with character creation). At the time, I intended the appearance screen to be usable by any “Creature” in the game, not just the player character.
That never happened, because if I had done so, I would have probably doubled the lines of code in order to do with it – having variants with “you have” and “[target.heShe] has”. As of a few days ago, there were approximately 4,300 lines of code in appearance.as.
I finally did it. Of course I leaned on ternary operators so as not to bloat the linecount, but I can now feed any NPC (with properly set statistics) into the appearance function and get an appearance similar to the player character’s. It was a real bear, believe me, but some of the hilarity I discovered when testing almost made up for it.
For instance – did you know that Anno’s statblock had balls? When I made her, I started from a copy/paste of Syri with some edits and apparently forgot to give her a thorough neutering.
What’s the advantage of doing all that extra work? Well for enemies with fully fleshed out stat-lines, I can add an appearance button that lets you take a more exacting look at their body that the single paragraph of fluff. It also sets the stage to more easily display highly customizable NPCs if I ever go that crazy.
Oh, and I wrote a new scene for a Zheng Shi enemy and coded in Tessa’s bust too.
You know what they say; mad skill pays the bill and takes your crotch for one hell’ov’a thrill.
FuckBoiMcCat seems like a lot of fun
FuckBoiMcCat is a hero of the people.
tfw my old save had twice the credits because I thought I would be able to donate to patreon and get mroe stuff to spend it on but I ran out of food and now im sad ;-;
Did you remove her balls tho or am I gonna have to upgrade my imagination for her scenes?
Huh. So Syri is technically older than Anno, then. =P
tho Anno said she was older 😛
So what does this mean for characters that already had custom “appearance” buttons? Some of them are more than just description – the characters notice you staring at them, for instance.
Any Treatment stuff currently in the works? Like the faux cow, double stud, or the undersized variant hinted in Cheat.as in TiTS Public? I’m just curious.
Not atm. Zheng Shi and engine stuff atm for me!
WTF happened to Anno in the pic, I dont recall anything TFing her like that.
husker treats, uveto
Huskar Treats are a helluva drug.
Ok, I knew about the treats TF option but never saw the FriendlyAlienFriend “Fluffy” version. i though I was a new TF. Thanks all for painting it out.
Wait….Anno is 5’10? Thought she was 6ft?
Ask Savin? Maybe that value is also incorrect. As mentioned, Anno started as a copy/paste of Syri.
Updated appearance code, to be used for NPC’s as well, with the possibility of highly costumizable NPC’s in the future? Colour me interested! I think this is a great change 😀
Is it Backers only for now, or is it public?
Right now it’s neither since there wasn’t a new build released with the post. Chances are that the next build will most likely be a backer’s since the last build was a public one.
Anno with testicles? That’d make for some… interesting foreplay.
So….. doggie has balls but no schong…..
and that brings the question:
Anno + SynthSheath ?????
if Anno got a dong I think it be more of the red rocket variety and our characters butt would be the first on her list to use it on
Any way in the future we could add a picture for our character in the top left portrait?
Sometimes it’s hard to role play my character without constant picture reminders.
(Meaning as in when i check the details of my character, i see the portrait of them.)
The amount of variety available to us to edit our character would make having a generated image of our Steele extremely hard and it would look like the MLP OC generators.
I wasn’t asking for that, i meant uploading a picture for their portrait….
I’m an artist… so i would love to make my OC, and then have them in game.
And when i mean have them in game, i mean as steele.
But who was Penny Recruitment?
Where is Penny’s Recruitment?
I’m also wondering that myself, He said he wrote up some of Penny’s recruitment scenes and a few other contents, then a week later more ZHENG SHI out of no where, and Penny was never mentioned again.
He’s probably still waiting for this “B person” to help him with her scenes or he don’t consider Penny a high priority or maybe he just simply forgot?
Holy heck! How’d you get that much health? I’ve only ever managed to get 260 at level 10!
he cheated duh 😛
He is fen he has godpowers of dev
Uhh so is there any plan to continue with Breedwell or at least Quaelle? Is anyone working on her (nonesuch.etc)?
I’m working on a Quaelle expansion right now!
Since we are on the subject of genitalia, we all know there is different types of them in this game from goo to animal, and there are items/TFs that can give you these types of genitalia, right?
What I’m trying to get at is, why is the male genitalia is the only genitalia used on NPCs and none of the female genitalia is never used on NPCs who will obviously have them besides Goo/Gel/Alien and those are even barely used?
It don’t make much sense to go “yay horsecocks and doggy dongs” and “ew horsepussy and doggy muffs”, if this is for the memes the latter is also memes as well.
What is the point of coding in all these different female genitalia for different races and not used it on said races?
At the moment PCs and Cunt Snakes are the only things in the game that uses the female genitalia code, everything else is a non-definitive vagina.
Ex: Penny is a human who modded herself into a fox, so maybe she didn’t want to mod her assumed a human vagina into a canine vagina, but given Throbb she gets a canine penis when it should match her original genitalia and be a Human Penis, because she didn’t mod that area.
What about those who aren’t human at all?
Because nobody cares about vaginas.
I do, but I prefer human ones, so it doesn’t bother me if they’re undefined on NPCs.
But if they’re undefined on NPCs, how do you know it’s a human one?
We just found out recently Anno had Balls.
Wasted code, wasted potential, wasted work, just another stand-in project that will never be complete…
The guy who insisted on giving CoC Kelly a horse vagina, folks.
He is fen ergo he is god
so I got my answer about Shade and such but I don’t think anyone got back to me on Beatrice is she going to get any content I really love my milfs especially the married one
You cannot rush art.
Anyone else having trouble with the updated Android 212 apk? When I tried loading the game just black screened me but didn’t crash. I’ve even uninstalled/reinstalled but it still keeps on?
What version of Android are you using?
Come on Fen, you should know that readable code is much more important than line count. It’s not like the compiler gives a crap.
This is nice! it makes me wonder if TiTS will have a image viewer for steel. Like the one in old CoC.
You should do a customize NPC option, I think it should be under the silly mode of course.
Nothing like gallivanting across the cosmos and running into an all herm and male populated
universe. What lucky men we would be. 😀
