Studs having special traits could help make them be useful even after you you have monster boys.


I am a HUGE fan of this idea. I certainly know the monstergirls would enjoy this.

Dumb idea in addition- send studs over to monsterboys explicitly to be eaten when they have this trait to cater to fans of male preds. An expensive way to feed them, but that's never stopped me before!

I also like Persona59523's perspective on establishing the limits of what you're comfortable with moving forward- you touched on this some at the beginning, but it might be best to get at least a bit more of this out of the way, no?


The voreaphile idea is just one possible idea for special traits

A few ideas on traits and how they work

Known voreaphile - Has a high chance of being eaten by any monstergirl, including non predatory ones like cowgirls. Is almost always eaten by predatory creatures like lamia. A voreaphile being eaten by non pred monstergirls doesn't increase their pred stat unless their so hungry it would happen anyways. Nobody will be surprised to hear another voreaphile met their end in the gut of a monstergirl so rep won't be lost. They don't incur a hiring cost but rarely if ever do the job they were told to (that being getting the monster girl preggo). Not incurring a hiring cost makes sense since they are actually trying to get eaten in most cases. Also the bravery stat is ignored by the stud when they have this trait.

Super sperm - The resulting child will have far better stats and max stats than usual. A roll is made from anywhere between 50% to 100% (double stats)

Super Fertile - If the resulting child is a female they will receive this trait (stud only). Super fertile will cause the monster girl to sometimes spawn twins. The chance increases if the male has the super virile trait (monsters only)

Super Virile - If the resulting child is a male they will receive this trait (stud only). Super virile will cause female monster girls to occasionally have twins. The chance increase if the female has super fertile trait (monsters only)

Smelly - Slightly reduces the chance of the stud being eaten.

Unappetizing - Moderately reduces the chance of the stud being eaten.

Limburger Smell - Severely Reduces the chances of being eaten. It also reduces the chances of the monstergirl getting preggo and somewhat reduces their happiness. (some monstergirls are an exception specially if they like cheese but in such cases this trait works in reverse). On rare occasions the monstergirl may acquire the gourmand trait if they do eat the stud which negates the negative effects of the limburger trait as well as the benefits.

Gourmand - Food gives better boosts to their stats. They also no longer refuse certain foods as they are attracted to the idea of eating exotic foods.

[Species] Fan - The stud is a huge fan of this particular species. Hiring him for those monster girls costs half as much.

[Species] Hater - The stud hates monstergirls of this species. Hiring him for those monster girls costs twice as much.

Yea i know what you're thinking monster girls refusing to eat food? Well every monster girl species is different and as such you cannot expect thm all to be so willing to eat what you're trying feeding them. Cowgirls for example may refuse meat or non vegetarian foods for example since they don't normally eat meat. On the other hand predatory creatures like lamia may not like the idea of eating vegetables or fruits if they haven't had meat in a while. Some may even refuse anything other than live food on occasion.

an aesthetic idea. Studs with dialogue. What they say depends on what monster girl they are hired to get preggo (species wise). It also can be afected by the traits they have too.

I like these traits, they're really really good. I hope TC can possibly implement these which I don't think should be too hard to do.

So, on the topic of giving studs traits, there is a somewhat similar thing being added to the game already, though it applies only to monster girls. Specifically, they'll have personalities that influence certain calculations. Given the scope of the rework that's part of the update, this is also a good time to add similar traits to studs.

Since you all are probably curious about the personalities now, I'll list out what I currently have.

Spoiler: show
Shameless: Stats increased for beauty contests, increased happiness loss for losing beauty contest.
Bashful: Stats decreased for beauty contests, increased happiness gain for winning beauty contest.
Prideful: Increased happiness gain/loss for winning/losing contests.
Modest: Reduced happiness gain/loss for winning/losing contests.
Moody: Increased happiness gain/loss from all sources.
Apathetic: Reduced happiness gain/loss from all sources.
Flirty: Greatly increased happiness gain from sex.
Seductive: Increased happiness gain from sex, increased chance of devouring mate.
Alcoholic: Increased happiness gain and health loss from alcohol.
Voracious: Increased happiness gain from vore, greatly increased chance of devouring mate, massive happiness loss from starvation, increased metabolism.


The Gourmand trait suggested for monster girls did give me an idea for two new personalities as well. They'd tie into a mechanic that's already present: each species has a "preferred" type of food. If they eat their preferred food, they gain more happiness and stat growth from it. Monster girls themselves count as certain types of food. So the personalities:

Gourmand: Slightly increased happiness and stat gain from non-preferred food, happiness and stat gain from preferred food reduced to match.
Picky Eater: Slightly reduced happiness and stat gain from non-preferred food, increased happiness and stat gain from preferred food.

You won't be able to check the personality directly. But the "Check" option in the monster girl menu will give different messages depending. Most personalities will share messages with each other though, though not always the same kinds. Two personalities that share the message for vore might not share the message for sex, for example. So you can try to figure out personalities from that.

But yes, I do like the idea of studs having traits, and can probably implement them. I'm not really a fan of multiple traits that just do the exact same thing, to different degrees, though. I do really like the Species Fan/Hater traits.

As for boundaries, other than futa the only thing I'm really 100% opposed to is cock vore. And scat, though most people are. Right now I don't really consider vore types and such a huge priority though, particularly due to graphical limitations. No actual vore animations; if it wasn't for the swallowing sound, you could easily imagine a monster girl anal vored them or something. Also spritework is tedious and I've learned to hate it much during this whole project.

Thank you so much for replying! I'm really looking forward to more progress on the game having heard this. I appreciate the clarification on personalities, too!

Best of luck moving forward and all that.

Glad a thinker like me could dgive you some ideas. I had some area ideas too for later. But for now some more ideas on expanding upon stud traits.

The smelly , unappetizing and limburger traits are meant to be are meant to be traits which have different appearance rates. A ranch's fame will somewhat determine the frequency of studs in the bar that will have traits, and the more famous you are the more likely studs with traits and more powerful versions of some traits might appearr. Known voreaphiles will always appear regardless of fame or rep but since the ranch is relatively unknown you won't see them as often.

After a certain point some stud traits stop appearing because studs with better versions of those traits will start taking their place more frequently than not.. the only exception is the limburger and unappetizing traits due to limburger having some negative side effects to it. Most stud traits don't start appearing until a certain level of fame is reached.

Fame is similar to rep. Fame is a measure of how well known the ranch. Fame never decreases due to bad stuff happening and only ever increases when your reputation does, but if rep is less than half of fame then you start losing fame slowly, as people stop talking about the ranch and it becomes obscure.

Is this game dead? I don't want to be that guy to ask really but it has been a very long time with complete radio silence and I'm just curious as to the state of things.

No, It's still being worked on, progress is slow, but there IS progress. How do I know? Sulac is a part of Orosaki's discord like I am, and there's a progress thread/channel. Don't worry, it'll come, eventually...

I have a couple of questions I've been meaning to ask, if anybody knows:

Is there any correlation between bravery of a stud and their chances of being eaten?

Does reputation keep going down past the third skull marker as more studs are eaten in an under-the-hood sort of fashion, or does it cap there?

I hope I haven't accidentally asked anything redundant!

Yea sulac was apparently sick for a bit but he's apparently better now since he's been posting on discord. Not sure if he's working on the game or still recovering but odds are he's working on it.

They are doing fine, they'd like to be able to get a head start on spritework... (Guess, they've still got some coding to do...)
