Out of curiosity, wouldn't it be legal for you to just use the code modders used to implement the threesome already? It works really well.


I was thinking the same. At the very least you could cooperate with them on features you want to include. Even with changes or adjustments, that would probably cleat up a lot of time.

They hold all of the rights to their own code, which means unless it was explicitly released to me to use in a commercial environment I can't use it. Having an example system that people like is a great start for designing my own implementation though, so it's helpful either way.

Lab Rats 2 v0.41.0 is finished and available to patrons for a week of bug testing. At the end of the week it will be available to everyone, absolutely free! If you're already a patron, or want to become one and help with bug testing, you can find the links here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/51958892

This update brings LR2 to the most recent Ren'py version to make use of the new native shader support it includes. The switch to native shaders has greatly improved frame rates and responsiveness, especially when multiple characters are displayed at once. It has also made it possible to replace the solid character background with a transparent one, or to remove the background entirely, depending on what an event requires.

In addition to the improvements to the display system there has been new content written for a couple of LR2 characters. Your sister's Instapic career continues to advance with a new event chain, in which you help her get some bigger boobs. You can try and do it the old fashion way, by giving her a stack of cash and sending her off to a cosmetic surgeon, but you'll need to convince your mom it's a good idea. Alternatively, you can use your personal pharmaceutical company to develop a breast enhancing serum and help her out with some "natural" growth. A new shopping event has been added, with the ability to be taken shopping by your mom or sister. If you have a girlfriend, you can also ask them to go shopping with you as a date. This event gives you the chance to make new outfit suggestions, as well as enjoy some sneaky public mall sex if you can convince them.

The changes to the shader system make it likely that there will be some platform specific bugs that are impossible for me to test for until it's in your hands. I'll be releasing nightly builds for patrons until there's a build that's playable on all machines.

Enjoy!

LR2 v0.41.1 is finished and ready for it's week of bug testing by patrons! This update brings LR2 to the most recent Ren'py version to make use of the new native shader support it includes. The switch to native shaders has greatly improved frame rates and responsiveness, especially when multiple characters are displayed at once. It has also made it possible to replace the solid character background with a transparent one, or to remove the background entirely. Both display styles are now available - you can toggle between them in the preferences menu.

In addition to the improvements to the display system there has been new content written for a couple of LR2 characters. Lily's InstaPic career continues to advance with a new event chain, in which you help her get some bigger boobs.
