FAP-U

 

Current Version uploaded: 0.74 Uploaded on November 1, 2017

 

Q. What is that Mirror Link?
A. The Mirror Link points to a directory where I have placed the software for you to download. There are two versions. One is for PC's (Windows or Linux) and the other is for Mac's. Select the one that applies to you, unzip and play as desired.

 

Q. What is FAPU?
A. It's my having fun learning how to use Ren'Py and Python, while also building on an idea I had after playing a similar game called Ashford Academy. Ashford Academy has you playing the role of a High School Principal, while FAPU has you taking on the role of a University Dean, in the future where Earth isn't alone in the universe. Since universities (at least in America) enjoy using acronyms a lot, I opted to do the same. FAPU stands for Federation of Allied Planets University.

 

Q. But what kind of game is FAPU?
A. Well, it's a hybrid of sorts. A lot of RenPy games are linear style visual novels. While FAPU uses some of those elements, it's not linear, nor is it a visual novel. The university has specific stats that can be increased through events. Events are triggered by visiting different areas during the course of the day. It uses a day-planner like set-up, where you've three periods (Morning, Afternoon, Evening) where you can go to certain locations. Each location visited triggers an event. Some events are purely random - other events require you to achieve certain thresholds (such as a certain social rating, a certain building level, a certain affection level) - and there are some unique events that only run once (and many of these require certain thresholds be achieved). Plus, some events can change over the course of a game. For example, an event where you interact with someone may result in different dialog or choices as you progress and reach different thresholds. For the most part though, it is intended to be an open game, where you control the flow of what you experience. It does have some Game Over points, and just how many can be tracked in the event chart below.

 

Q. Why are the right choices in some areas are completely obvious?
A. When I hear this, I feel that is someone thinks a 'right' choice is obvious, then they're over simplifying the game. If you do a play through where you're a 'good' Dean, then you're missing content that would be there if you play a 'bad' Dean - and vice versa. Some NPC's prefer one approach over the other. So if you're very complimentary to someone who likes the bad or aggressive type, then you may either get a negative rating with them or get placed in the *shudder* friend zone. That said - I'm not trying to trick people either, so it would hopefully be relatively easy to figure out what kind of interaction someone may prefer. But for those that think you HAVE to be either good or bad in the game, that's not true at all. Good, bad, or a mixture all work - and each has some rewards and risks.

 

Q. What's with the mirror and a lack of actual LoversLab download links?
A. The game has grown to over 100MB in size, which means it exceeds the upload limit for Lover's Lab. Once I decide I'm done, I'll likely upload a version that is broken into parts, but for now since it is still largely a work in progress, I'm just going to be using the file link feature.

 

Q. It seems a little sparse in some areas.
A. Yes, I agree completely. From a features point of view, it's largely at the point where I plan on taking it. From a content point of view, it still needs work, and that's my primary focus going forward is adding more events.

I know you suggested not to download it. :P

But I liked Ashford...so I wanted to check this out.  I liked the appearance of this one better.  It is more streamlined.  It is prettier so far.  Something I will definitely keep an eye on


Aww...I got Advanced Buildings and it crashed. :(  Oh well.  Really good work so far.

Was it when you bought a specific upgrade? Any error message help you can provide and I'll try and have it fixed when I post the next update.

It was as soon as I clicked on Advanced.  I can try to run thru it again.  Will take a while.  It popped up with a screen.  Will try to copy/paste it.  When I clicked ignore, it dropped me back to the Title screen.

 

 

Also get one I can ignore when I go to the Onsen will grab that one too.

 

Here is the Onsen.

I appreciate help - I was able to reproduce the Advanced issue based on what you shared. The next update should address both it and the Onsen issue (hopefully). :)

OK.  Was trying to get the error.  I hadn't saved for a while, so was progressing the game.  Thankfully I know the RenPy console commands, so I could speed things up a bit...hehe  Shhh.... :D

 

Just because I went thru all the effort to actually get it.  haha

Rollback takes me back to the game.

Ignore takes me to the Title Screen
 
This time I saved it right before clicking advanced.   :D

I think I am also gonna start a female principal too.  Just to see if the Onsen is any different because of the whole male thing in the error report.
 
Female makes no difference.  Did you not differentiate Male/Female/Funitari principals yet in your build?  Seems like they are all treated like male principals...

If the onsen didn't error out, it has one event that would have been a little different. Outside of that one, I don't believe I've any others in there right now, although it's definitely planned.

Looks very nice!  I look forward to trying it out when I get the chance.  But on that note: how much time would it take to get a Mac version working?  I seem to recall that it's pretty easy in Ren'py, but I've never tried it myself.  Obviously I'd love to see it for every build, but if it's a hassle, I understand if you'd reserve it for more major releases.

It's really no hassle at all. I honestly only selected Windows just because it's so small right now and not really worthy of a time investment. When it has content that I'm not embarrassed about, I'll post up other builds as well.

Shouldn't be embarrassed about what you have so far.  It's a very good beginning.  Be proud of what you started with.

Posted an update that addresses the pair of errors that were mentioned as well as some more events.

 

Still thin, but hopefully enough to give an idea of what's going on with the vision.

 

Next update with more is presently planned for next weekend.

Good to know.  I'll definitely be testing it once you've got a Mac version out -- assuming I'm not completely obsessed with Stellaris at the time.

Bah. I see the issue. Simple case of a pair of missing '=' signs. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

*looks around* Guess I am your Alpha Tester.  hahah

 

And no problem.  Just trying to help you out, because I honestly have nothing better to do with my time.  I am checking out various Visual Novels and other stuff.  So doing something somewhat constructive is a nice change.

Because you are taking it that way.  It's an abbreviation for the University.  However I don't know what the initials F.U.K. stand for.   I figure it's a joke, but he hasn't explained the joke yet.

 

There is actually a really shitty translation for the acronym that is mentioned in the introduction stage before you reach the university.

 

My plans are to invest more brain power into a better description for the acronym at a later stage, but I went with FUK-U for two reasons. 1. To signify it clearly as an adult content game. 2. Because some real world universities like TAMU helped inspire the idea of a FUKU, which I tweaked to FUK-U for improved phonetic interpretation. :)
