Image Requests

Fri, 02/08/2013 - 15:19 -- BlueWinds

So, I have a request to make to all of you fine players. I need images! Not just any images, but some specific ones.

Anime-style / hand-drawn only - no photos or realistic oil paintings, though line-drawings might work. No computer-generated images or screenshots - they don't fit with the mood of the game. Post your suggestions here, links or attachments, and thanks!

  • The Guild headquarters (a large, imposing building that oozes with wealth and power).
  • A new image for the Luxury House (exactly what it sounds like - not a mansion, but a small, fancy house in a city setting).
  • A better image for the Theater (A relatively large building, possibly with statues out front).
  • Various city locations (for upcoming content):
    • Guard Garrison: City guard and military.
    • University: Students, classes, temples, etc.
    • The Slums: The bad part of town.
    • The Docks: Ships, foreigners, traders.
    • A Park: Clean, nice, families during the day / erotic, trysts, lovers during the night.
    • The market: Bustling, crowded, exotic during the day / drinking, partying, entertainment during the night.
    • Redlight District: Quiet, resting, dirty during the day, the evening... well...
    • Uptown: Rich, respectable, power, elegance.

in other news, the dev version is temporarilty offline was temporarily offline. It's now available at a new URL, http://dev.brothels.im.

The old URL, brothels.im/dev, shared save-games with the production version, which could cause problems if you used dev then loaded production again (after dev had added things to the savegame). Hosting it on a separate subdomain will remove the issue.

Gah, I can't believe I've done this again. I make some tiny little change which can't possibly break anything... and it makes it impossible to start a game. This is probably the third time I've made this exact same mistake.

Should be fixed now. Thanks for pointing it out.

i drew this.

it might be easier just to get some photographs and run some artsy filters on gimp.

I like that one - thanks.

Artsy filters are what I've been using so far, but I'm not very good at them. Crowd-sourcing things for the win.

some filtered images

Most of those could work, but ultimately, they look like exactly what they are - filters applied over photos. I'm hoping that someone happens to have a screenshot from some episode of something or more drawings. I'm in no rush here - plenty of text to write before I need most of these.

the dev ver doesn't seem to allow me to hire girls.

and on the 3rd day i get(savefile included) 

"Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'invokeAllSync'

Line 243"
 
when I try to Advertise with Kirino I get 
"Data does not match any schemas from "anyOf"

Yeah, you caught me just as I was fixing these. Try refreshing again and they should all be gone (if you have Advertise selected, you will have to select a different action after refreshing, close the dialog, then reselect it to get the fix).

Thanks, some of these are just perfect. I'm currently in the process of writing a new action, Explore, which has an option for each of the city locations.

The http://randomc.net one just sends me to a no-hotlinking page - do you have a page link for it (or attach it here)?

Nifty trick with the refresh. I usually don't notice such blocking attempts, since I have a browser plugin which messes with referal headers, but a recent update apparently borked up the settings.

The only things still missing are some night shots of the various locations - the ones you've given cover all the locations I have planned during the day. Not a big deal, as I can just use the same daytime image.
