Alpha Build 4.0

I wasn't able to fit in as many animations as I wanted to this update. Notably absent are the male/male animations, sorry! I know you guys have been waiting a long time for those, I promise that next update will be super gay to make up for it :P. Also, there's a lot of new stuff that will probably break in this update, so let me know about any serious bugs and I'll see if I can't fix them ASAP.

- There's now an options menu that allows you to turn on/off different types of sexual content. If you turn off the traits your monsters can still get those traits and it won't affect gameplay, however they'll have no visual effect on your monsters.
- Catgirls can now get the Futanari trait, which allows them to produce offspring with both male and female monsters. The only futa animation I have in so far is futacatgirl/catgirl.
- You can now purchase the Demon Pit ranch upgrade and get Demons. The only demon animation so far is demon/player.
- You can now purchase the Elf Stockades ranch upgrade and get both Male and Female Elves. Unfortunately there's no elf animations yet, and I'm still working on the male elf idleanim and hair/eye/mouth variations.

Known issues:
- A lot of the gameplay is currently pretty unbalanced; I'll be focusing on rebalancing soon
- If you have Neoteny and Futanari on the same monster, it will ignore Neoteny
- Male elf has no idleanim
- If you select a breeding pair that has no animation, it no longer shows the "And then they fucked" message. This is intentional just to remove a useless window. I may also add an additional top of the screen message just so that it's easier to tell that the monsters did breed.

  1. Something I noticed straight off was the animations seemed slower; is it just me or was it intentional?

    1. No, that's strange, it's not that way on my machine. I'll look into it.

    2. I am seconding this as well. Harista. I own a low end PC that I play this on, and it works fine in low quality (which is my quality of choice either way)

      Sometimes, the animations slow down noticeably, and sometimes they'll be 1.5x what seems to be normal.

      Other than that, though, I love it!~

    3. Hey um... Wow this is my first contact to you... I am a big fan and well there is a problem... when my futa catgirl breed with my human I couldn't fined my baby. whats the deal?

  3. I wish i could still say im surprised that you didnt finish all of what you promised.
    Alas, it is like it is. Atleast you are working on it and there is some progress.
    I just wish you would either ease up on the empty promises or finally man up and keep em.

    Just an idea, but maybe, since the options menue is working now, you could make a switch for the end of month payments;
    I dont know about other ppl but its really irritating to me, trying to do them while the clients demand ridonculous stats and/or traits in the first few weeks.
    Wish they would change everynow and again. The way it is right now, one is kinda stuck with impossible to fullfill clients till the luck smiles on you and gives you the needed traits and/or breeding modifiers in the shop.

    1. he does have a point, sometimes i'm completely stuck with a gold or silver client and i cant get my hands on a creature that meets requirements without harvesting for a few days to make money, then restocking the store till i find the perfect one. then after ditching some creatures, buying it, and carefully breeding up certain stats while leaving other below a certain value, i'm out a couple of good creatures i had to abandon to make the room, and i still don't get the gold stat i wanted.
      the whole issue is usually the "stat < 45 " or something stupid like that late in the game when every creature i have is up at like 800-1000 in every stat, all positive multipliers, and No Downsides

      There may be something in the code causing this. Or maybe it's triggered after an unlock, or an event, or something.

    3. Did you by an elf just before? The store broke entirely the moment I bought an elf.

  7. If I can make one point of criticism of your presentation, it's this: You need to stop making update notices you cannot deliver on.

    This is probably, what, the 6th update in a row where you've said "We're going to have M/M Animations" and then the update comes out and "Oh, there's no M/M animations." The thing is: Stop announcing it. Completely. Don't announce your features, just list them when the update goes live. Instead of going "Here's what I'm going to have for you in a few days" just wait the few days when the update is put out and say "Here's what I have for you."

    Don't give Patch Notes in advance, something will always come up. Also, as a point of what was happening before, don't announce an date of update if you are less than 100% certain you can deliver. This is the root cause of the increasing vitriol in the comments (besides Anonymous tools just being dicks for fun) is that you are consistently making a promise for an update and failing to keep it.

    I'm not saying "Stop breaking your promises," I'm saying "Stop making them at all." Just work on your game (and your life) and post the update when it's ready. It doesn't do you or anyone else any good to keep hyping yourself up and failing to deliver on it.

    TL;DR: "Valve Time" and "Square Enix Announcing Syndrome" is highly unprofessional. Try to avoid it as best you can.

  8. -- BUG --

    I've an Elven Slave Girl who meets client GOLD's demands, but it does not let me sell her, indicating that I may be missing something -- which I am not.

    TRAITS: Albino, Strong Family Resemblance.

    STATS:
    STR - 208/378
    STA - 181/181
    DEX - 152/411
    WIL - 155/411
    CHA - 94/108
    FER - 101/101

    Client GOLD's demands:
    All stats > 62
    STR > 85
    WIL > 134
    elvenslavegirl


    Links to my screenshots shall be provided.

    This will "break" a game, as I can not do any gold clients anymore. Please fix this soon.

    1. I am using the exe and both Elven slave Girl/Boy do not show if i min the list to only show one of them.
      Not sure if they go from that list or not.

      Happy to see more work on this game

      Delete
    2. I don't see anything to filter:

      - Elven slaves (both genders)
      - Demons
      - Futanari (maybe this and Neoteny can have a new feature - to be separated by trait?)
      - Neoteny

      I know the last two shouldn't really be there, as they are traits, but I imagine people are going to request it sooner or later.

      Perhaps we'll see some more on this in the next update or two. I'm looking forward to seeing more work!

    3. I'm having the same issue. I can't seem to sell any kind of elves even though I meet the requirements.

      Delete
    4. and I seem to be having issues with posting under the game or loading the last few posts, is it just me?

    8. Same problem.

  9. Female monsters other than catgirls can carry the futanari trait, but it won't show up. I don't know if that's intended, but if it is, there should probably be some kind of tag on it to make it less confusing. Good job on the update :)

  10. Just ran into a bug where i could no longer access the shop it was in the second moth and i had purchased all the ranch upgrades.

  11. Bug: Shop becomes inaccessible after buying elves it seems. May apply to other monsters as well.

    1. It appears to be an indexing problem after buying elf stockades. The shop works when there are no elves in the list.

      Delete
    2. I'm not receiving this bug, and I've tried replicated this by:
      - Buying the elves, one of each gender, and then accessing all the shops.
      - Buying female, and then accessing all of the shops.
      - Buying male, and then accessing all of the shops.

      For this new update (we know harpies, stallions, and holstauri work well), I only unlocked the elves for this one.
      I have had a demon and two elves of each gender on a previous save, and even then I was able to access the shops.

      There has to be a certain event that triggers the inaccessibility.

      Delete
    3. Looks like something goes wrong when populating the shop list after you have elf stockades, and if you leave it like that, you can't enter the shop again.

      Delete
    4. If the shop gets stuck, skip a few days or complete a contract. It's a temp fix though as it will break again.

      Delete
    5. Bug

      We can sells elves in any Other then this spot. as in must not be (E S G) will take an elf slave girl. so Elf only will not work as the game dose not see Elves as Elves. I am using the Exe so it may not be the same bug as the site vrs.
      I did get the shop bug and i am not sure why but restock after u buy a E S B Lock the shop for a few days.
      But the shop will work again after you complete a Contract.

  17. "If I can make one point of criticism of your presentation, it's this: You need to stop making update notices you cannot deliver on." Agreed on this whole post. It doesn't do anybody good to hype up features in advance, it just leaves room for disappointment if they can't be delivered on time. Just release things as they're finished and people will be a lot more positive about the release than if you have to keep telling them that some of the features couldn't be added in time.

  18. I bought a demon right away to see the new animation and all I get is the "And then they fucked" ... so the animation for harvesting is not existent for me.

  20. Okay, I think I found a glitch. I took a futanari cat girl, stuffed her full of holstaurus milk, and had her impregnate my character. The resulting character is marked racially as a "futa catgirl" but lacks the futa trait and does not even show up in the kennel! When I make her breed, there is no animation. Even with another futa cagirl or regular catgirl.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh, I will also add she can still impregnate females despite lacking the trait, and I managed to have a non-futa trait catgirl be born from this, but still having a dick and being marked as a futa catgirl in the same way a kittengirl is marked different.

      Delete
    2. The kid does not show up in the kennel either.

  21. Love the update but I think you should work on fixing all the bugs and getting the rest of the animations in before adding anything new.

  32. i was thinking maby addin"harvest all" option to each stable for monsters so when you click on the stable it will ask if you want to enter or harvest and itd only harvest that one stables animals. main reason when i need money its a pain to go through each house and harvest all the monsters one by one, also because im lazy :P. just a thought

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i like that idea also! it would be a great quality improvement. i hate having to click each and every one as well.

      note: i think it should be like "harvest all" and then it harvests all the monsters (if they can be) once. that way you click to harvest as many times as you want, but dont have to go through each monster.

      Delete
    2. This idea has come across before. I think it was nixed because of the time needed to harvest can make it impossible to get all the monsters in one go (which monster would get priority in that case). A "harvest MAX" on the individual monster screen may work better; as then you just need to do it once/monster.

      Delete
  33. Perhaps you should open source this project? Instead of folks complaining that certain updates break gameplay they can attempt to fix it themselves.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I like this idea.

      However, I'm sure Harista would be losing on out *some* monetary opportunities here. If there was a way we could preserve the integrity of the membership, voting features, etc, than perhaps this could work.

      I wonder how many people are currently working on this game. I only know of Ironvein, yet I don't know his or her role in this, and then there's Harista. Perhaps they could create an application for some of us to fill out, who know how to make animations, or code in . Upon completion, if they approve it, then we can contribute to making these updates happen.

      Delete
    2. I simply contribute ideas. I have a lot of programming experience as well; so I can usually determine the overall cause of a problem without needing to see the code. If HBomb likes my ideas, he uses them. Alot of the time it isn't the way I would have done it, but it's his game.

      Delete
    3. Wow, Ironvein. Thank you for your honesty.

      Delete
    4. I don't see why Harista would lose out monetarily speaking, he can be the maintainer. Lots of open-source projects have a maintainer that controls the main development branch of the project. As being a maintainer means being a full time developer and delegating/rejecting/accepting/controlling community contributions, he can claim all donations. Look at how large companies, such as Oracle, IBM, Intel and even Apple, employ full time developers to work on open source projects like the Linux kernel.

      Delete
    5. Wow, that's a really good point. Can't believe I didn't think about that.

      Welp, I'd like to retract my previous statement, then. :x

      Delete
    6. While I don't have plans to make the game open source, I do have plans to make it easy for anyone to add their own new monsters and animations.

  39. Should probably have a check for mutually exclusive traits showing up on the same monster.

  41. here is the thing. I know the futanari trait has carriers (non-catgirls) but can you make it so that on the next update, you can actually have futawolves, futa demons, futa harpys and the like instead of them just being "carriers"?

    1. I suggested that. And agree once again that making some sexy wolves would be great. We have elves now. Why not alow futawolves to exist? There will be futaelves at some point anyway.
      Don't know what to do with futahourses though. Horse is as sexy as it is :D just add a vag and let it breed. I guess.
      I guess there should be a penalty for using futas aswell. But not gamebraking.

  42. I was under the impression that while the art is ready yet; that the futa trait ought to work regardless of the monster type. I haven't come across one yet, so I haven't tried. Has anyone tried that yet (futa M/ normal M to see if offspring can be made)?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The futa trait actually only works on catgirls. The way both the futa and neoteny traits work is that futacatgirls and neocatgirls are actually entirely different species from normal catgirls, and the traits transform them into that species when they would've been a catgirl normally.

      Delete
    2. Hmm, so the trait doesn't actually handle the futa mechanics (counting as both male and female)? Odd, but okay.

      Delete
    3. No, I actually added a third "Futa" sex and then altered the methods that involved sex checks. There's actually only two sex checks the game ever makes (when breeding to see if pregnancy is possible, and then to figure out which monster is the mother).

      Traits aren't actually allowed to do much themselves; the only thing they do is change variables on the monster that owns them. When I code in a new trait I generally end up having to alter the method it affects (breed, feed, harvest, etc) and add a variable to control it to the monster. Unfortunately it's part of the reason I end up breaking things a lot when I add new traits. I admit it's a pretty terrible practice, but it's a consequence of not knowing everything these methods would eventually have to be able to do beforehand and not wanting to limit what I'm capable of doing with the traits. Once I get a little closer to having all of the major systems in the game solidified, I'll be able to refactor and lock everything down and make it a lot more stable.

    1. No. For now these are the rules of the game.
      I guess the game would become very cramped if you add more slots. With all but harpies camp filled, I was feeling a bit uncomftable with the amount of monsters. So much, but still not enough.
      Maybe it's time for some fresh mechanics? Maybe there should be differen towns? I fear that you can't expand the game at it's current state forever...
      Monsters should be hidden by default or something.
      The breeding menu becae abit craped. And I wish the monster icouns would have some graph to show theirstat info. Or the monster's avatar should change with stats. Like get bigger from strenght, eyes glow from wisdom, vibration from speed, sparkles or a cute smile from charm, fangs from ferrosity, and the amount of breeds for its stamina.

  46. Bug Report:

    If you a acquire the Neoteny trait with a Holstaurus via the use of human intellect skill, it does not update visually, also to note, if you breed with the Holstraurus that has the Neoteny skill but has not visually changed the offspring that still posses the Neoteny trait will maintain their "Adult" appearance instead of the Neoteny appearance. However, breeding with a Holstaurus that has is visually a Neoteny will work just fine.

    On another note, but has already been reported, elves cannot be sold even if they meet the client requirements.

    All testing on my part is done from the .exe file, no clue if the bugs carry on to the browser file.

    By the way, just a side personally desire, i really hope we get some changes to the male characters models also that have the Neoteny trait. Mostly because i find that neoteny dickwolves would be cute ^_^

      Out of curiosity i tried this also with Harpies and cat girls, with similar results, which was a tad surprising, when the skill is acquired via human intellect there is no visual update, however with both harpies and cat girls, the offspring that are born with Neoteny do appear as Neoteny, whereas the Holtaurusi do not. I don't know if the fact they do not change from acquiring the skill with human intellect is intended, because i recall doing this before this last update and the visual did update upon acquiring the skill.

    2. Another bug found:

      Futa Cat girls appear in your catgirl kennel if they are purchased from the monster store, however they do not appear anywhere if you breed a futa catgirl with another female and the resulting offspring is a futa catgirl.
