A few things have changed since the conception of the questionnaire and the emoticon. Back then, the emoticon meant this:
And well, sure it’s kind of nice, but boring and outdated. I invented the dating system, where you go on dates with the bachelor. I wondered what the player could unlock if they went on a lot of dates with the bachelor. I also wondered how I was going to include the emoticon while dating.
Remember a while ago I talked about a sex mini game? Wondering if I should make one, and if I would, what would it be like?
Well say no more, here is the conception of the Affection Mode system. Here’s an image with a lot of information about it, which I made mostly for myself because this is complicated as hell.
Basically, the AM will launch after you have had a successful date (full happy meter) with the bachelor, and he’ll ask if you still want to continue hanging out for a bit. Say yes, and a screen showing different body parts will open up, as well as a close-up of the bachelor on the screen.
You’ll be able to select between two modes: hand mode, or mouth mode (provided they’re both unlocked). Choose hand mode, pick a body part of the bachelor, and then you’ll be presented with a few options such as:
Select one of them and you’ll perform that action on the bachelor, vice versa for the mouth mode. If he likes it, the AM meter will go up. If he doesn’t like it, the meter will go down. I have not yet decided if I should make this run on time or not.
The AM meter represents the bachelor’s feelings at the moment, and is divided into four phases: reserved, friendly, sensitive and hot. You can only clear the reserved phase when you are at a blue heart and below, and this is also the only phase you can clear in the censored version (you know, for the kiddies).
You can clear the friendly phase if you are at a green heart level and up. This then goes into sensitive stage if you are at a yellow heart level. This in turn transforms into the hot stage if you are at a red heart level and above. Jackpot can only be cleared during marriage, which leads to sex (screen fades to black) and AM ends.
Clearing a phase when you do not have the required heart level for the next phase will end the AM, and you’ll gains some bonus points for clearing said phase.
Each bachelor has their own preferences (as well as a sweet spot), and it’s your job to find out what he likes. Be careful, while you might have unlocked a bunch of options, he might not like you sucking his lips if he is at the reserved phase. Though you can go all out at the hot phase.
The amount of dates you’ve been on will unlock the body parts. While each heart level is tied to the amount of body parts you can touch, it is the amount of dates that you’ve been on that will really unlock them. For example, you are at a yellow heart, but have been on 0 dates, that means you won’t have any body parts unlocked except for the default. On the other hand, if you are at a green heart level, but have been on a countless amount of dates, you will only have unlocked the body parts that are available for that heart level.
And that, ladies (and gentlemen), is the Affection Mode that completely replaces the old emoticon and the questionnaire.
Thoughts are appreciated as always.
Oh, have I mentioned that the bachelors will have small voices? Such as sighing, moaning etc. I’m planning on making them moan with pleasure during the hot phase ;D
Right, this is also important to note. Act like a slut and you’ll gain slutpoints, which can have consequences … what they are, I do not know just yet.
