Just because I may consider Amukiki a friend doesn't mean I want to see him half-naked in a beefcake pose. No thank you. Save them for the romances, for those who are interested, as milestones.

Well after making the list, some poses aren't definitely "friendly" :mrgreen: meaning that you couldn't just stumble on them randomly (I don't think anyone runs around the camp naked. Well, Chambara might, but...).
So no, you'll have to earn them! But anyway I plan to allow a "story mode" after you beat the game once, so it won't be so hard to replay the game to unlock the other images :wink:

Ah well, for that there are plenty of porn sites on internet! :lol:
Jokes apart, I prefer to make games where there's some romance involved, real relationships. Even if I did hentai games (I'm not), I don't think is fun at all to just show character making sex without any context/reason.

I think wargool is asking why do the romances have to end with sex, or why isn't there a choice for a non-sexual relationship (although I thought in the first game, Myrth's didn't follow that, but I'm not sure).

I have agree a bit. Playing with the safe mode, having all the romance CGs in the first game being removed made my romance feel really incomplete. And I prefer cute to sexy, so I guess I would have liked an option to end the romance with a kiss rather than a sex scene. But I believe you have that option in Loren 2, correct?
I can only speak for Amukiki and Chambara with Elenor. Loren and Elenor was still rather sexual, even if the picture wasn't as visibly explicit.

And also, I thought the point of the pin-up was it supposed to be a interesting situation that is also kind of sexy. I mean, I don't see what's wrong with a scene Saren is training with Breza. I really don't like the idea of limiting it to romance or even really making it romantic (I mean, that's the point of the final CG... Can't the pin-up be different? I guess it's not really a pin-up, then, but that's fine by me). It just sounds like less scenes for characters you can't date (and as human path Elenor, for example, I never felt like I had anything with Myrth, even friend-wise. I think a memorable CG could help that). I'd just make it so you have a choice to see it. Something like, "Amukiki is training over there... Go watch?" or "Draco's sitting at the bar... Meet him?". No and you don't have to see it, yes and you can.
I mean, it's not my decision, but... I dunno, I think these were a good opportunity to make better relationships for like Rei and Saren or Myrth and Elenor. With no cutscene, no romance, and possibly missable down paths for a good part of the game... I think a CG would make them more memorable.

In Loren 2 there are sex scenes, but there are two versions: naked (or sexy) and fully (or almost) clothed. Doing yet another variant would be too much (24 romances x 2 = 48 images, no way).
As for the pin-ups I can have two versions of them too, one with less clothes and one with more clothes, so they could fit both situations. Rei practicing archery naked would be funny for Elenor path but I imagine a straight male Saren would be a bit shocked :lol: so reusing the same pose but with full clothes would work just fine as "friendship" image.
One thing is sure, I can't add more images beside those new pin-ups (I can add more generic event CG to tell the story though).

I want to tell that it isn't obligatory to have the romantic relations for sex. So clearly? :sorry:

Well, I hope you keep to one image per character "pursued", romantically or otherwise, so we are encouraged to do multiple playthroughs. I'd hate to unlock all the "pin-ups" the first time through.

Yes that's the plan. Otherwise I might as well making a self-playing slideshow :lol:
