Hey,
I wanted to write a suggestion or two, but I didn't think the other topics were appropriate, so I hope it's alright to open this thread.

Anyway, I think it'd be nice to tone down certain events, or make sure they can't happen too often. I had two brawler events within a few days and it totally wrecked my playthrough, one of my girls got hurt for over 20 days, the place got +200 dirt (+100 for each event) and I couldn't help it. Instant cleaning was way too expensive, cleaning personnel was way too slow and my girls kept getting hurt/sick so I went bankrupt... So, maybe this part of the game could use some rebalancing?

Thanks

Cool game by the way, I see a lot of effort went into it. I'm looking forward to future updates.

Are you keeping a lot of cash on hand?  Because the threat level is directly connected to the amount of cash you have.  It's also inverse to the amount of security goons you have.   So two ways to reduce the likelihood of raids like that is getting rid of the cash and increasing the amount of security that you have.

Hi!
No, not at all... I had less than 500 cash for sure. Had 2-3 goons hired.

I was completely baffled tbh, as I simply couldn't even clean the place and things went downhill real fast.

In fact, brothel costs went up after moving to the docks, so I struggled to make money at all.

never had that happen to me even with 3k+ in the bank at end of 1st chapter

Im doing it like this: i hire 5~6 goons raise the advertising up to the max number what the girl can handle and raise the cleaners up to 4 (it's enough for the whole chapter1). It will only cost me about 20 gold/day.

i try to be as selfsufficient as possible with my girls. only hire when girls aren't enough any more

Don't know if you are the same person, but there was one such feedback on F95.

One idea which could mitigate the problem somewhat would be to allow the player to 'partially clean' the brothel to the extent of his finances (basically spending his entire balance and cleaning proportionally to gold spent). Still a risky move, but better than spiraling into bankruptcy.

Hello,

I actually wanted to say that i enjoy all the fighting events, including the brawling ones. Wanted to add a suggestion about adding more of those in the future, i love the new siege system, it's a shame that i have to leave my brothel unguarded for it to receive attacks more often. Was wondering if there will be move fighting events in the future and will those include the girls too? Will be amazing to put in use all the weapons i buy for them. I enjoy your game so much that i decided to try and learn how to create events myself, i'm not good at coding, but will see what happens when i have some free time. I understand that having a brothel is the main aspect of the game, but would enjoy to have more things to do outside of that and include the girls in those. Not sure if the holiday\birthday events are part of the new update or some of the the mods i added, but i really like those too! I had a suggestion on the old forum about tagging photos, so that some only appear when your MC is in them, to kind of give him a sense of uniqueness, instead of using the same images for customers and MC. I wasn't able to achieve that sadly, it's way too hard for me to do, at least for now! In any case, thanks for continuing to support the game and adding new things to it, Goldo!

Small suggestion:

Make the /game/default images folder dynamic, like a regular girlpack. Making it easy to replace the images it contain.
(If no suitable image is found in girlpack -> Look in /game/default/ for a suitable image. If none found -> show the "No suitable image found" error message.)

But really I should just complete my default images replacement project and upload it for the developers to implement at their own leisure. Would any developer even be interested in this?

Well, you'd have to define what "your MC" looks like compared to other males and I'm afraid that's a very difficult proposition. I guess what you mean is to exclude pics that have a male protagonist that looks very distinctive, such as a very fat one or one whose face is shown...

As to how to implement it, you'd need to add a new tag to the tag dictionary in BKsettings.rpy (such as "main"), and add the necessary game logic in training events so that MC-only pictures are fetched (mostly by adding your new tag to the 'and_tags' argument list) and in customer events to exclude those pictures (by adding your new tag to the 'not_tags' argument list).

But this is not really where the most work lies. The most work is re-tagging all of your girl packs with this new logic. That's going to be extremely time-consuming I think, but do-able of course.

Well, there is really only one developer but yes, I'm interested in your default replacement project - although I remember other people were working on that so you might want to merge your efforts with them (sadly, with the loss of the old forum I don't remember who it was).

I'm not sure what you mean by making the default folder dynamic. AFAIK, it is already dynamic, i.e. you can add new pictures with the right tags and they will be used.

I got a suggestion, that allow you to replaced Sill with your Waifu, trust me this is gonna be really good for main game story
- Replaced your Sill with your Waifu, making your slave as a trainer

- Change the trainer to a marriage system, it will act the same as trainer but the slaves will be train according to which trait does your married Waifu have. (You can marry how many you want or marry one and make the others your concubine)

- Add in tier like there should be 3 tier in the game
+ Tier 1: Married: their upkeep is still 125%/150% you can choose which gold trait they can have and that gold trait will not affect the upkeep

+ Tier 2: Hired: their upkeep is at 100% you can choose which positive trait that they can have that positive trait will not affect the upkeep

+ Tier 3: Slaves: their upkeep is at 50%/75% (or none depends how you want to configure the game) you can remove 1 or 2 bad traits that will not affect the upkeep

- Tier 1,2,3 can be bought/get by hiring them from the street/store or buy them from a slave market.

- Add a new job where your slaves/hired can be use as a guard rather than renting out bodyguards for you or your brothel. (pretty much by adding +(number)attack/defense/magic
Hopefully these feature can make it into the game and if you want more, I got a lot of stuff in mind. These are just some quality changes for the player experiences

An idea for a new brothel room you can construct.  An Office room, works similar to the Master Room, that gives you free react actions every day.  At night you call your women to your bedroom for training/magic, in the morning for chat/react.  Gives you more time to get to know your women and be good/evil without sacrificing the important daily actions.

Maybe even add some craftables with it.  Things like a hammock and comfy chair to buff positive interactions, a paddle or handcuffs for negative interactions.  Maybe even enable unique reactions based on things built, something like a massage table (good) or a gag (evil).  Dunno what to make to buff chat options.

Hi guys,

Thank you for your suggestions. Some questions/issues I had reading them:

The main issue here (besides re-coding a fair chunk of the game) is that Sill is quite important to the story. Still, this could be something to look at for the no-story mode.

Quote- Change the trainer to a marriage system, it will act the same as trainer but the slaves will be train according to which trait does your married Waifu have. (You can marry how many you want or marry one and make the others your concubine)
The trainer system works very differently from your proposal, though, so I'm not sure what you mean by 'act the same as trainer'?

Quote- Add in tier like there should be 3 tier in the game

The issue here is that 'traits' is a reflection of a girl's background and natural abilities. She's not suddenly going to develop big boobs or pretty eyes or magic skills just because you married or hired her.

Quote- Add a new job where your slaves/hired can be use as a guard rather than renting out bodyguards for you or your brothel. (pretty much by adding +(number)attack/defense/magic
I've discussed a version of this idea here. I think this is separate from your other suggestions and would benefit from being implemented in the way I suggested (because it would open the door to 'mini girlpacks').

I understand the idea, but I wonder if that wouldn't disrupt the game flow too much (I already find the Master bedroom kind of intrusive). The main problem is that 'react' interactions have built-in diminishing returns: if you praise or punish a girl several times in a row, it stops working. So this feature would require the player to swap girls in and out of the Office on a daily basis. It then becomes as much if not more micro than interacting with the girl manually.

Still, if I try to get to the core of your concern, it seems to me your underlying problem is that AP are expensive and you'd rather be spending them on something else. We could then imagine an Office building or some piece of furniture that would grant you X free chatting actions every day.

This would relieve the AP problem without introducing all the overhead of the above solution.
