How is Peggy's Elasticizing Lube STILL not an item?!

PLEASE, dev team, I'm literally BEGGING you here, add Peggy's Elasticizing Lube to the game! Kiro gets it, the Carver twink slaves on Dhaal get it, loads of people get it, so why can't we?! Sometimes I want to play as a hyper-hung character without needing to use Condensol (which sometimes still leave you too big) every time- worse if you have to use it during combat.

This wouldn't be hard to implement, either! Make it a key item purchaseable from, Vending Machines, toggleable on and off in the codex. If you're worried about the logic of having an infinite supply, then just make it a subscription thing that drains our credits after so many uses of it. It would serve to eliminate any receiving partner's insertion size limits, and would simply require a single line like "You take a moment to slather your [penis description] in some Peggy's Elasticizing Lube" to be thrown in during sex scenes. On the other side, it would prevent stretching for the player and eliminate our size limits when we want to catch, and just requires a similar line with us applying it to the orifice in question. Heck, you don't even have to include that line, we can just assume it happens!

Please! It's a simple mechanical addition, but it would change so much!

I was concerned until you said that it wouldn't be hard to implement.

Also, you might wanna read this: https://forum.fenoxo.com/threads/what-the-idea-subforum-is-for.4983/

I figured this fell into this clause of that post:

The exception to the above is ideas for purely mechanical changes to the game. If you have ideas that would improve the way the game works, combat balance, class features, etc., this is the place to put them up for discussion.

Ah, I see. Guess I just didn't interpret it as such then.

From a purely mechanical point, I myself would just wish for FenCo to just get rid of the whole maximum orifice capacity mechanic. It's stupid. I simply can't imagine the meeting they had early in development, where it was decided that locking players out of content was somehow a more fun gaming experience for them.

Also, only recently they fixed a ship upgrade that allowed for more crew members on Steele's ship than was intended. Instead of just adding another +1 to the description of that item, there is just less space for crew members on ships now.
So someone on the team must've also thought that having less crew members = more fun for the players as well.

So I wouldn't ever get my hopes up for them to remove orifice capacity.

It's real odd how attached developers can get to certain ideas that are nothing but a detriment to the experience.
Like if a players want a battlecruiser sized schlong, why restrict them? Their experience effects no one else, and changing dick size isn't riveting gameplay.
Same with putting a limit on how many companions you can take. Like I can understand having a limited number of modules for them to man, but arbitrarily telling players "No fun!" Without any solid reasoning just hurts the experience.

It seems to be an attempt to remain grounded in realism, but this game isn't anywhere near to being a sim, so what's the point?

the "reasoning" for this was that the ship mechanics and crew design were added in years into development, rather than being well planned in preproduction.

I am not justifying it, just providing clarification

The CassTech was always described as having capacity for 2 or 3 crew, but people kept writhing companions since it wasn't actually tracked. There was also an expectation of capital-class ships, eventually.

And anyway, that's what the Infinite Crew cheat is for. It's even separate from Infinite Storage.

I meant that more in a general sense of what is fun in a game and what isn't. Nobody on the team has said anything about the matter at hand, using that wording as far as I am aware and I don't wanna start any rumors.

I guess that's why this game has cheats and a save editor. I was able to set everyone's anal and vaginal capacity to way higher than it will ever need to be, so I essentially have all the Elasticizing Lube I'll ever need.

This game has very limited cheats, as well as having no official save editor. It's always funny seeing someone break their savefiles though and posting them here, asking for help, because they thought that they knew shit about coding and now nothing works for their living man god Steeles anymore.

@Wafflesnake
I don't need to lurk the discord server to know that there would be people on FenCo that also think that limiting players is just inconveniencing them.

Also, regarding orifice capacity again: It can't be that outlandish of an opinion to think that the game somehow considers "really big pp Steele" a bad thing. I mean, it's a fucking porn game..
