Hello all - it's been a little over two months since the release of Discipline Master Tales. I wanted to post an update today about what we are working on currently.

Most of you are familiar with the graphics of the Discipline Master series, of which many of the character models date all the way back to Magnus3D's Bottom Line Comics circa 2010, before development of first Discipline Master game even began. As of Discipline Master Tales there are about 65 individual characters in the Discipline Master universe; each of these characters has their own customized model (body shape, face, skin tone, hair, etc) from which we then create their adventure mode sprite(s) and face reaction graphics. We also use these models to pose them for story panels and unique cp sessions.

This system comes with limitations. Every story panel must have models posed from scratch. More importantly, each cp session that doesn't use the "standard mode" (just seeing the butt) has to be uniquely created, characters posed, implements animated and marks created for the camera angle(s) used.

Having just 65 characters also limits realism of the game world. In real life 65 people is perhaps just 2-3 classes of students. Yet a typical school can have hundreds or even thousands of the students (indeed CHI is implied to have a quite large student and staff body; we simply never see most of them). Creating a new character you can imagine is a time consuming undertaking, even if you won't be using them in any non-standard cp mode session.

So what we are doing right now is creating a system that can generate characters by using individual components (body shape, face, skin tone, hair, clothes etc) and (if needed) animated/posted for various situations (walking, standing, cp positions as a spankee and spanker, etc) and then assembling them on the fly to create complete characters. Need an entire class of students? It can now be done without having to painstakingly create each one separately. This system will also allow customization for player controlled characters.

This system will be used in our future games - be it School Builder or another D.M. title. We'll be posting more information as time goes on. That's all for now!
