Been trying to find a good AVN(adult visual novel) with the story focused mostly on the pregnancy aspect.

I've read a few such as Mist, Once in a Lifetime, Eternum, and the Builder. They have great stories, don't get me wrong, but I'm still trying to find one that doesn't
just have pregnancy as the ending or a side-story.

I played Japanese VNs for several years before going down the AVN rabbit hole. A lot of the stories really get you invested into a character and keeps you reading for hours.
Maman Kyoushitsu (https://vndb.org/v2748) was a pretty good example of a story focused on the girl's pregnancy. The story basically involves a brother that has a pregnant sister(with another man),
who returns to her hometown during her last month to give birth. The main character ends up taking up a job teaching a maternity class that prepares women for birth. I won't give any spoilers, but you
can use your imagination on what will happen during the story. The story went into a few details that were factual and really add to that immersion as you read the novel.

If anyone has a recommendation, I'd really appreciate it. 

Also, since I couldn't find a novel that fits the description. I thought I would try my luck at making my own.
I have zero experience with 3D animation and character modeling. But I do have experience in CAD modeling from working as an industrial engineer. I tried my luck at learning to use DAZ 3D
and code with Renpy, both of which were really easy to use.

I'm still learning about lighting, textures, perspectives, and Python coding. But it's been getting me closer to trying to make the visual novel I've pictured in my head.
The main issue right now is that I'm lacking direction and have very minimal experience in story telling. I thought I would try and see if anyone would be interested in
trying to make a visual novel. This forum would be my best bet at trying to find some great minds to help make a top-notch pregancy-themed visual novel.

I've made a few very short ones for fun to test the imagination. But trying to make a full length one with several hours of story-content has been a bit of a challenge.
I'll also attach a few of the renders I've done from a few novels I tried making. This is all new to me and I've only been doing it for fun. But I think it'd be nice to be able
to publish a game to fit the void in the current market.

I attached a few renders I've done so far.
Note: the niece just seemed more fitting for the scene than a grown woman

I might be interested. I'm a decent writer, but I don't have much experience with writing character dialogue. First, a word of warning, I'm not too interested in lolicon.

Are you planning on a dating sim or more of a linear novel? I would recommend focusing on only a couple of characters with a deeper narrative over many girls with shallow routes.

Maman Kyoushitu is the best eroge in this genre, unfortunately.

Great~ I've once tried Daz3D, but the rendering time just took too long (since my computer only have RTX 3060 with 6GB). Below are some of my renders from Daz3D~
           


I've switched to AI generated images since then~ though the consistency of the output and the control of the poses, etc. are not as great as Daz3D, the rendering time is significantly reduced~ Feel free to let me know if there is anything I can assist with~

I have an RTX 4090, so I can help with rendering at the very least.

No worries, I wasn't planning on including loli content anyway. But I'm looking at more of a linear novel rather than a dating sim. Also, like your idea with the deeper narrative. I'm looking at maybe a total of 3 main characters. I don't have much experience either with writing character dialogue, but I'm sure it'll come together with some feedback. I'm also using a 3070 in a laptop, so my render times aren't the best either. But I've used BoostforDaz and Irendering on occasion.

You're renders look great! I appreciate you willing to help out. I have thought about using AI generated images since it's so much faster and I love how crisp the pictures come out. I've seen a few other members come up with some sweet looking renders using Adobe Firefly. But like you mentioned, the consistency and control over the poses is a bit tough if you really want an expressive character.

I'm still trying to decide on a theme for the story. Currently just free writing until I can get some inspiration.

To shorten the render time and keep things simple, I was leaning towards something like a post-apocalyptic or maybe a kind of survival story. I'm open to suggestions, if anyone wants to chime in some ideas.

I'll add a few sample stories I've written, after I've proofread everything and see what you guys think. For now, I want to find whatever ideas everyone would be interested in reading.

I just downloaded Daz3D, and my pc renders this community benchmark in 62.5 seconds. The thread's comparison charts show RTX 30XX series cards taking between 2-3 minutes. 

My suggestion would be to start with a scenario and outline, then create characters. When you say three characters total, do you mean the player character plus two more?

(Edit: I was using the stopwatch on my phone and estimated 65 seconds to render. I just noticed that Daz3D displays the exact render time.)

Thanks, I'll give that a try! I've been trying to match a character to the scenario/outline, but it does feel a bit forced sometimes. And yeah, three characters would be player plus two more. Occasional side characters, but I want the story to center around 3 characters.

I'll look into my render settings and see what I can refine to get faster times. Only being able to get 10-20 renders per day does seem a bit slow for a laptop 3070.

A mobile gpu tends to perform roughly one tier down compared to the desktop version. This varies depending on what the laptop manufacturer set the power draw to.

Is there a way to share files for faster rendering?
