Started adding user skills to the game.
As you do things in the sim, your skill in certain actions will increase. Skills will also slowly decrease over time as well.
You'll also be able to 'contract' or work for other users who need certain services you have a high skill at.
Examples of skills...
When you are doing it for the first few times, your conception rates will be pretty low, in the 50% range. As you do more your conception rates will get up to the 75% range.
It will be part of the game and you'll get better at it the more you do it.
No Updates Until December 29th
