Captain Hardcore Suburbs – New Location and More in Update 0.18

Developer AntiZero just dropped Captain Hardcore version 0.18 and we’re flabbergasted at the inclusion of a completely unrelated to anything sci-fi new suburbs location. This new quite expansive housing estate joins the gothic rooms and some other oddities already in the scene posing section. Players can place characters, animate them and also add various props including customizable wall artwork. It’s a nice inclusion despite being somewhat unfitting of the main theme of the game. It’s also playable via desktop and in VR.

Full change list:

NEW: Facial Expressions – 32 female and 17 male expressions, these are fine tuneable with sliders and it’s even possible to mix different expressions. I’m planning to automate some of these in the future to create dynamic character reactions.

NEW: Smart Lick – Male and Female characters will automatically lick pussy, ass, nipples and feet when positioned correctly. Characters will also react to being licked!

NEW: Option for characters to stick out their tongue, this overrides the expression sliders.

IMPROVED: The look at system has been re built from scratch. Head and eyes rotation now works perfectly, regardless of the overall character orientation. With the old system they would not rotate correctly when the character was on their back, side or upside down.

IMPROVED: Increased the head constraint limits so that it can rotate further backwards.

NEW: Smart look at mode – Characters gaze will automatically follow the player, toys and other characters when they notice them.

Improved: When a toy or other object is inserted into a characters mouth they’ll only track movement with their eyes, this stops animations from being messed up!

NEW: Suburban Neighbourhood environment – An entire street consisting of 16 houses which are all enterable! This large environment opens up so many scene creation possibilities in a more “realistic” setting, I can’t wait to see what everyone does with it! There’s even a button in the basement of one of the houses to switch between day and night mode! You can also press L to switch lighting scenario.

NEW: 6 spawnable furniture objects including sunbeds and a jacuzzi. More of these will be added in the future so that you can decorate the houses however you like.

NEW: Spawnable lights – 2 floor lamps and a lava lamp.

NEW: Option to hide the laser beams and red dot when the menu is closed.

FIXED: Skin material settings could not be changed on the default character/scalp bug.

IMPROVED: Better mouth and teeth textures + material.

FIXED: Player falling through the floor in some situations when switching between edit and first person mode.

FIXED: Gimbal lock issue that caused the head and eyes to glitch at certain angles.
