Let’s Talk About the Custom Character Creator.

Howdy all,

I’m here to talk about the CCC. What it is, what it isn’t, and everything in between.

So what is the primary purpose of the CCC?

First and foremost it is a developer recruiting tool. We needed to find an entry level way to let potential developers write a character, without having to explain the ins and outs of how the game works. As the game has grown, so have the complexities associated with adding a new character. The CCC places everything you need to create a character in one folder.

Normally a character requires appending code all over the place. The My Harem Screen, The Oracle Fortunes menu, in each location a random encounter is to occur, etc. All of that is handled for you by the CCC. Set the correct options and off you go.

Tell me More!

I have done my best to anticipate anything a potential writer may want to implement with a new character. To do this Stephanie and the CCC were developed together. Any time I wanted to add a feature to Stephanie I had to add a way to do it via the CCC. In this way I feel I have created a fairly comprehensive system. Once I was happy with both Stephanie, and the CCC, I ported Stephanie into the full game.

Knowing Stephanie’s script would be pretty intense for a first time Renpy user I then went on to make a generic example character. She is rather limited, but looking at her code will give you a general idea of where to start. If you dig through her script you’ll find basic examples of how you can make a character such as:

  • Have her change her outfit. (Like Miyu does)
  • Situational Talk to her Dialogue (In her example this unlocks her fertility display on the My Harem Screen)
  • Situational Menu Items (In her example once you have cum in her once a new 69 Her option appears on her menu.)
  • How to have your character be unlocked via an encounter.
  • And more!

This simple character took no more than an hour to throw together, granted she is super dialogue light. What I’m trying to get at is you can make a mechanically functional girl in only a couple hours once you get a feel for how Renpy Works. After that the most time consuming part is simply writing the dialogue.

Known Limitations:

The CCC is limited to one girl per save file. When you start development you will want to have a save file set aside for it. I recommend you progress through the game naturally up to the point you want your character introduced, then make a copy of your save to use while implementing and testing your character.

Encounter Limitations: Due to how the Bank, Stock Trader, and Indie Game Dev are currently implemented, the CCC cannot have encounters at those locations.

It requires version 0.3.0.2 or newer to function. (The update is available in the updater as of this blog post. Other downloads will be provided soon).

What It’s not:

The CCC by itself will not greatly expand the roster of the game. Due to how Renpy works you cannot simply drop in a character like you can in games like Slave Maker 3.

This is not a hand holding system. Although I did my best to make sure the code has plenty of comments explaining everything, you still will need to spend some time in the Renpy Documentation before you will be able to make any real use of this system.

Where can I get assistance with the CCC?

Discord, that’s it. We will not support the CCC via reddit or waifu.nl.

We have setup three discord channels specifically for the CCC.

  • ccc-discussion: This is a place to discuss ideas, collaborate, and have fun.
  • ccc-help: This room is strictly moderated. You should post specific, highly detailed questions about the CCC. To clarify, this is for questions related to the CCC, not Renpy in general. If you need help with Renpy in general you should be reading through their documentation.
  • ccc-advanced: This is an invitation only room. If we feel like you have a decent grasp on what you are doing, but are trying to implement complex features that would go over the head of a Renpy newbie, you will be invited to this room.

I wrote a character, now what?

Get in touch with the dev team on Discord. We will take your character for a spin. This will result in one of three outcomes.

1. Your character is accepted.

  • We will begin porting her over into the game.
  • You will be provided with a copy of the game with your girl implemented to bug test your character with. The CCC is still in it’s infancy and bugs are bound to pop up while porting your character. You will know her the best, so you will be expected to help test her.
  • If you desire to join the dev team, and are accepted, I will walk you through how she was ported to teach you how the game works internally. This way your next character can be written natively.
  • If you do not desire to join the dev team that is fine as well. You are welcome to continue creating and submitting characters with the CCC.

2. We like her, but she needs some work.

  • This is honestly your most likely outcome upon your first submission.
  • We will detail what we feel her shortcomings are so you can make the needed adjustments.

3. Sorry, but no.

  • This can come about for any number of reasons.
  • She could be a great character, just not a good fit for the game.
  • Perhaps we felt she was half-assed.
  • Perhaps the grammar is so bad that our editor isn’t willing to touch it with a 10 foot pole.
  • In any case we will explain why you were rejected. If you somehow manage to turn the character around we will give you one additional look, but if you get this answer twice in a row we will no longer accept submissions from you.

Cool, where do I get started?

You first stop should be the CCC Wiki. Between the CCC Wiki, the comments in the CCC scripts, and the Renpy documentation you should have no trouble making your first character. Just know that it will take a bit of research on your part, the scripts don’t write themselves.

Please note that the CCC files have been slightly updated for 0.3.0.2. The updated files can be found on the getting started page of the CCC Wiki

With all that said, good luck, have fun, and happy fapping.

Almost There!

Hello Everyone,

I am happy to announce that Haramase Simulator 0.3.0.0 is almost here!

So what’s the holdup I hear everyone screaming into their PC monitors….

Two things:

  1. Rumines is being put into a releasable state. She is not 100% completed, that will happen in a minor content update in the near future. That being said there are new things to discover with her none-the-less.
  2. The in game updater. This has proven to be a bigger pain in the backside than we initially thought it would be. It is not a commonly used feature of Renpy and documentation on it leaves a little bit to be desired. That being said the fine developers of Renpy have been helpful and we think everything is working at this point. We will continue to stress test it up until the game’s release.

On a more random note, there have been nearly 1,100 commits to our repo since the release of 0.2.2. See? We do do stuff!

Best Regards,

The Harasim Dev Team.

Haramase Simulator Status Update.

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to let everyone know that we are currently wrapping up the next release of Haramase Simulator. I can’t give a firm release date at just this moment, as we have a few more bugs to crush before internal testing starts, but know that we are close.

So what’s in the update then?

Three Updated Characters:

Kurumi, Hayasaki, and Rumines have received additional content.

Two New Characters:

Stephanie, a masochist who long time player’s may have seen wondering around the pool in a previous release.
There is also Inari, and well, you’ll see once you’ve got the game.

Random Girl Engine:

Some new characters and new smut have been added to the Random Girl Engine.

Jobs Overhual:

The jobs in the game have been re-worked to include career paths.

In Game Updater:

We have setup an in game updater. This will allow us to easily push out smaller, more frequent releases. This will also affect how we string together our version number. The next release will be 0.3.0.0. Bug fixes will occupy the last digit, minor content updates the third digit, and major updates the second digit.

Custom Character Creator:

The Custom Character Creator (CCC) is a system to allow anyone to create a Haramase Simulator character.  It has been designed to make any character made in it very easy to port into the full game. Gone are the days where someone joins the team to add a character and then fails to finish them. With this system if she isn’t complete, she isn’t in.  A more detailed post about this system will be published after the release of 0.3.0.0.

Temporarily Removed Characters:
Beatrice and Kira have been temporarily removed from the game. Those who have followed the game for awhile may remember that they were originally written and posted to 4chan by an anon not related to the dev team. At this point significant re-work is planned for them and as such they have been pulled. They will be re-added to the game via a minor content update in the future.

That’s all for now.

Best Regards,

-The Harasim Dev Team.

Haramase Simulator Trello

As I looked over our Trello today I realized aside from the occasional mention in our Discord, we’ve never publicly released it’s URL. So for those who like to keep a closer eye on the development cycle, I figured I’d post the link. Please understand that we are not always on top of updating the thing. That being said it does give a rough idea of what we are up to.
