Now that v5.0 is out there and selling, and that both release events are over with and went well, I figured I’d recap the whole thing a little and also put a little Q&A up here for a few popular questions that came up recently. So first of all, let me say that so far it was a huge success, and I’m excited to see how the products will do in the long run. More stuff will be on the way shortly, I already have ideas for more releases, possibly even before the year is over, but we shall see ;D
Without further ranting, have a bit of a FAQ here:
Q: My purchases are missing from the redelivery page!
A: This is because of an old marketplace related bug that affects a lot of people who purchased there around 2012 until the first half of 2013, roughly. If you find something missing, please either leave me an IM with the products you bought and I’ll refund you for them so you can re-buy the v5.0 version. Alternately, file a support ticket via http://vendor.psicorp.us/index.php/support and I will set a manual redelivery through the marketplace for you.
Q: I discovered a bug, what do I do?
A: Please file a report via http://vendor.psicorp.us/index.php/support and I will get back to you. This helps me keep track of open issues, so I can see whether something is reproducible or whether it is something we can fix on your end. Be sure to include details if you can, such as the name of the product(s) affected and steps to reproduce the issue.
Q: Where are the manuals for the breasts and fertility HUD?
A: Scheduled to be written today actually. Release was a stress filled time, and I needed sunday to wind down a bit. However, by today (or tomorrow tops, if something comes up) you can expect to see the manuals and tutorials updated for v5.0 etc
Q: Do I NEED a fertility HUD to partake in pregnancy play?
A: Only if you want to become pregnant or want to give/receive oviposition. The PsiCorp Bits HUD that comes with all v5.0 bits includes a basic fertility HUD option including some male functions. This is enough to have fun with people wearing the fertility HUDs, without having to buy the full one.
Q: My bits HUD is missing a female option!
A: This is because you most likely have the regular bits HUD that came with your bits purchase. It only includes the basic male side of things, and as such doesn’t allow you to become pregnant.
Q: So.. multiboobs?
A: Confirmed as a future release. I’m waiting on “Project fitted mesh” by LL so I can create a set of rigged multiboobs that will fit your body settings. I tried a non-rigged set, but frankly, it didn’t have the quality I wanted, so I will create a rigged set once this project has been implemented.
Q: My HUD sometimes doesn’t recognize bits right or has stale bits listed
A: This is something I’ll be looking into. If the listings are incorrect, please open the settings menu and click the “request -> attached” button. This will correctly clear stale bits and recognize attached ones.
Q: I don’t get how texture appliers work
A: Check the knowledge base. The articles on applying custom textures have been rewritten to cover the use of appliers now, and it’s not that hard 😀
Q: I want to make something using the CCS API. What do I need to know?
A: First of all, there are no licensing deals, fees, or whatnot involved. Simply start making stuff and have fun! Also, be sure to give the documentation a read, it covers all the functions you may use: http://support.psicorp.us/articles/tutorials-modding/developing-with-the-chastity-control-system-ccs-api
Q: I made something using the CCS API! What now?
A: You can offer it for free, sell it, use it, whatever you like 😀 – and if you made something cool, do pass me an IM, if I like it, I might just throw a little notification up on the blog, or we can see about getting an affiliate vendor set up in the main store!
