A Recipe Book

      45 Comments on A Recipe Book

A recipe book is coming in alpha 0.3 update! Now you won’t have to feed your girlfriend by burned food any longer. I still wanted to leave some room for exploration and experimenting, so the recipe book will work as follows: in the beginning you’ll know all basic recipes, but with optional ingredients hidden. You’ll have to choose to cook either the basic recipe with lower quality, or attempt to add optional ingredients. Once you manage to cook something with 100% quality for the first time, the full recipe with all optional ingredients will be added to your book.

If you have other ideas about improving cooking and recipe gameplay, please post them in the comments sections of this article!

Looking for translators

      11 Comments on Looking for translators

A video by Newzkung Raccoonza (Thai language).

I know there are a lot of fans of Shoujo City in Thailand, but there is no Thai language in the game as yet – because we don’t have any translators for that language. If somebody wants to begin translating Shoujo City into Thai language, please send me an email to get an account at the game wiki, where all texts are stored and managed. If we find people willing to help, this language will be added in next update!

We are also looking for active translators willing to help with other already added languages: Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Indonesian. The game grows every day and new texts are added all the time. Maintaining and updating all texts in different languages requires an active community of contributors willing to help with translations. My email address and more information for translators can be found at http://wiki.shoujocity.com

UPDATE (Sep 27): several contributors have contacted me and started translating the game into Thai language already, so this language will be included in alpha 0.3 release. Thank you everyone!

UPDATE (Sep 29): one person have contacted me offering to contribute Polish language translations. If anybody else reading this wants to help translating game texts into Polish language, please send me an email. If we find a few people willing to contribute, this language will be included in alpha 0.3.

Updates Log:

1. Yandere Simulator collectible items

  • Mini-figurines of Ayano Aishi, Kokona Haruka, Oka Ruto, Osana Najimi, Midori Gurin;
  • Yandere Simulator t-shirts (4 designs).

All these items can be obtained from two new Yandere Simulator UFO catchers. After obtaining a mini-figurine, you can place it on a rack in your apartment. By clicking on an item on a rack, you can examine it in detail.

Note: “Yandere Simulator” is copyrighted by Yandere Dev ( http://yanderesimulator.com ). All “Yandere Simulator” characters and images are used with official permission by Yandere Dev.

2. New UFO Catchers physics and designs

All mechanics for UFO Catchers were redone. Now they have more accurate physics and collisions, a new system for detecting won prizes. In addition to “catching balls” type, now there is also another UFO catcher type, where you’ll have to push boxes from racks.

3. Item zoom feature

After placing an item on a rack in your apartment, you can click on it (in 3D space, not in your inventory) and go to a new mode where you can rotate item to see all details.

4. A new clothes store (WIP) where you can buy clothes for you and your girlfriend. New clothes:

  • School sailor fuku (long and short sleeves)
  • School bloomers for PE (red and blue)
  • 6 new sandals
  • Cotton tights (18 colors)
  • School dress (4 designs, with black and white aprons)
  • School bows (4 designs, white and brown)
  • Tops (8 designs) – in a new gachapon machine
  • Android Girl ears (cosplay accessory)

5. New items in the convenience store

  • Umbrellas (5 designs)

6. New recipes for cooking

  • Pepper Tempura, Onion Tempura, Shiitake Tempura, Salmon Tempura, Tuna Tempura, Yellowtail Tempura, Shrimp Tempura, Takoyaki, Squid Tempura, Crab Tempura;
  • Chicken Ramen, Pork Ramen

Note: to cook tempura, use a frying pan, add a basic ingredient (e.g., shrimps for shrimp tempura), flour, eggs, and oil. Cook for 5 minutes.

7. Additional objects in the school area: desks in all classrooms on the first floor, air conditioners in shops, a new shop entrance (WIP) next to “taiyaki shop”, redesign of the area behind the school (across the street).

8. Item description in shops on click.

9. Keyboard shortcuts: “E” key can be used instead of clicking on “action” icon on screen, “Q” can be used for quick access of camera in your in-game smartphone.

10. New custom shaders for all trees and plants. This (hopefully) solves issues with overlaying semi-transaparent objects (windows, umbrellas, etc.), atmosphere effects, smartphone camera issues.

11. Fixed bugs:

  • the pocky game now can be started if you OR your girlfriend have pocky in hands (in alpha 0.1 it worked only if you had it in your hands). This isn’t really a fixed bug, just an improvement to game mechanics
  • black screen when using smartphone camera (please report if you still encounter this)
  • a few minor errors in title menu/inventory navigation
  • collision issue when you approached a railing corner in the gym second floor
  • a few camera transition issues when it was switching between different modes
  • numerous minor issues with various textures and sprites
  • a typo on the plates near the school gates
  • error with price calculation in the squirrel exchange service
  • several issues with body blendshapes and clipping clothes
  • navigation map errors that occasionally would cause gf to get stuck near the entrance door in the apratment

UFO Catchers

      No Comments on UFO Catchers

Just finished completely rewriting UFO Catcher mechanics and scripts. Now the machines use better physics, allowing to use real-word tricks for obtaining toys, like pushing items with claws in desired direction, instead of just catching them and carrying. I’m also adding new machine designs, requiring to use different techniques for obtaining toys. At least one new UFO Catcher machine will be included next update.
