5.0.1 Hotfix and Pin-Ups for Patrons

Yo. In the next 20 minutes I'll be throwing up a 5.0.1 hotfix on the Patreon site for our generous patrons. This is just some bug-fixes of some issues with 5.0. WARNING: Your 5.0 saves will not work with 5.0.1.

Bug Fixes
- Raising the store stats level should now correctly raise monster stat caps. Stat caps will no longer grow on their own unless you upgrade the store.
- You should now retain the ability to refresh clients using GP after loading from a save
- The Harvest All button should now work correctly
- You can now hold a maximum of 100 consumables at a time in your inventory, you may be able to upgrade this later
- Progressing to the next scene of multi-part animations should now work correctly
- Various minor tweaks

Some people have been reporting issues with unresponsive random dialog events that I haven't been able to replicate. Please let me know if you come across these and give me as much information about your game as possible so that I can attempt to replicate the issue.

Also, along with the 5.0.1 update I'll be throwing up the first couple of pin-ups that S-Purple has thrown together exclusively for our patrons, featuring Kala and Roxie:
The uncensored versions will be available for our $10+ patrons on the Patreon page.

Additionally, later in the month we'll be putting up our first patron-exclusive mini-game, a fun little bottle-catch flash game featuring Kay, with some racy rewards.

Also, I thought I'd give you guys a peak at the new harpies, as well as some of their variations (bonus points if you can name the references):


Finally, here's just a couple of sketches S made of Lily recently that I thought you guys might enjoy:

  1. So much for the poll not affecting anything :P. Gotta love non-patreon polls effecting patreon rewards.

    1. Would you believe me if I told you the pin-ups were going to be Roxie and Kala anyway, regardless of any poll?

      (That is actually the truth)

      Delete
    2. To see what NPC is more popular? No one ever said the poll was there to determine anything.

      Delete
    3. Then how would it determine which NPC is more popular, if it doesn't determine anything? You contradict yourself.

      Also that poll was heavily rigged, it's incredibly easy to do so on these blogger polls.

      Delete
    4. The poll was purely for fun. If I want to do a more rigorous poll later I won't be using blogger for it.

  2. Saves seem to have taken a hit again. 5 from 5.0.1 don't seem to be able to share the same save (Same for 4.9 to 5). Anyway you can see what is making this issue occur?

  5. Hartista -
    Your hard work made this game. You have every right to get paid for it, give rewards to donators, whatever you want to do with your creation. I have absolutely no problem with any of that.
    Having said that, I am concerned about the direction the game is heading. Features available to only donators is something I mentally connect with "pay to win". I know it's not a good comparison, but I'm just sharing my thoughts and fears here. I worry that future versions of this game will become more and more "donator only". As I said from the get-go, I don't think it's wrong if that happens. I just hope it doesn't.
    I wish there was a way to know where the line will exist in, say, nine months, between the public and donator version. I don't expect you to see that far ahead from now, but if you can, please share your thoughts.
    I really like that I can enjoy a great quality game for free. And I thank you for making that possible (so far).
    Thanks for reading this mid-sized wall of text.

    2. He only excludes non-patrons from what he said he would exclude them from the very beginning. You're still getting all the "basic" content of the game, which is... well... the game!
      The only thing is that you (and me) have to wait a bit longer than the patrons to see the next update.

      Delete
    3. Understood, and thanks, anon. I should have remembered that. It's been a long day.

      Delete
    4. I agree, I think that the bonuses that donators get should be aesthetic changes (don't affect gameplay) and rewards like the pin-ups (because that just makes sense). Honestly, in the future features that are added should be for everyone but things that don't change gameplay but make it "pretty" would be more fair. I suppose an example of what I mean would be the ability for donors to have special visual variations like a golden Harpy or "shiny" Catgirl. That's my opinion and besides that, good job Devs. :D

      Delete
    3. Listen, obviously these are fantastical beings, but let's stop pretending that it's ridiculous to call them fat. There is a range to fat, and having the massive frame that are frequent in S-Purple's art is something we don't really see in the real world. When your thigh is as big as your torso, that's not normal. Just because they have a thin waist doesn't mean they can't be fat. Being fat doesn't have to be a bad thing, but I think it's also perfectly valid to recognize that the frame of these beings is disproportionate to the point of being unappealing for some.
      Stop pretending their opinions are ridiculous.

      Delete
    4. I would love to see the ability to give monsters to Lily in exchange for something worthwhile. Maybe a child of both her and the monster you donated.

      Delete
    5. I DO think it's ridiculous to call them fat. In an insulting manner like everyone seems to be tossing out. Fat is a NEGATIVE term in general, folks.

      This is a H-game, in a fantasy setting, and it's got somewhat stylized art. Everything's not gonna be picturesque for your "everything must have realistic proportions" personal preferences, if you want realistic-looking women, go look at real porn, I'm sorry but it's late and I'm getting tired of this again.

      And no the bodies on the old models were NOT more realistic, do not use that argument.

      Delete
    6. nice Thundercats(I hope i spelled it right, or is it two words) reference, buddy

    7. If anything the old proportions were a lot less realistic. Giant breasts and paper thin waists...

    1. so what? Until now it's the only one... and some more variation won't do any harm.

      Delete
    2. I don't think so.
      They may have small breasts, but that doesn't make them childlike.
      They've feminine silhouette - nice waistline and fine ass. They're not as feminine as felf or catgirls, but they're feminine indeed.

      Delete
    3. Clearly you never seen small women. Also, have you seen the neoteny harpies? They MUCH smaller, so sorry but that statement is invaild.

      Delete
    4. I figured out why it looks like a neoteny to me. The head is huge compared to the body, giving it the look of a child.

      Delete
    5. Yo, this is the anon directly above and the first one. Here's what the harpy looks like without a disproportionate head.

      Got bored while re-sizing the head to show my point and thought I'd try goofing off with the low lights and high lights to try and make it less rubbery looking (too much contrast). So that's why it's colored a little differently, haha.

    6. That head is WAY too small, I'm sorry but it's actually rather horrifying at that point.

      Delete
    7. Harpies have small bodies otherwise flight wouldn't be possible, do your research before making baseless complaints.

      Delete
    8. So, it's more natural for her head to be as large as her torso?

      Delete
    9. ... because the concept of Harpies, Demons, and well, everything in BS is SO Natural.

      Delete
    10. Having an overly large head makes it look like a child.

      Delete
    11. So the one in the middle looks like a child to you ? Cause if I take his head and then add half his head in hairs (Harpy Hairstyle)...then it looks like the proportions of the Harpy to me....
      Also, go stand in front of a mirror... your head should be about the size of 1/3 of your Torso / upper body...

      Though, I think once you see a Harpy Neoteny picture, this one will look less like a child / Neoteny to you.

      Delete
    12. You do realize you inadvertently agreed with me, right? The harpy's head is about 60% as big as it's torso, so it would be the first one (the toddler). I threw a quick thing together to hopefully clear up what I'm talking about.

  14. I have to say, I'm not too thrilled with the store skills progression. It seems like it made it really easy to get backed into a corner in the early game stages where all the store monster stats are <100 and they do not increase unless you donate, which is also very difficult in the early stages. Perhaps a better system would be to allow the stat caps to increase on their own, and the guild stats system to affect how high the skills would start at when you buy them.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Is it me or do I see a harpy that looks like Monet from One Piece?

    1. More like what Monet's kid would look like; I'd say.

  16. When are the new neoteny designs being added? I really like the neoteny trait, but having seen the new designs its hard to, excuse the pun, get hard from the old ones. I like neoteny cuz it allows one to like a normally taboo interest without being a pedo.
    BTW, I am glad the porn genre exists. It allows potential rapist/pedos a release that wouldn't be possible if they held it in and let it fester. Just thought I'd bring that up since I was saying I like neoteny. :3

  17. Hey Hartista Bomb, I don't know if this question was asked before (probably was) but it would be awesome if you could convince Noill to work with you somehow. Together with S-purple, you would make a fine piece of work :3

    ReplyDelete
  18. I am royally upset with the stats system the way it is now. You should go back to the 5.0 and earlier system instead of the new crappy system you have now. The only way I will forgive you is if you make the clients' demands increase VERY SLOWLY or MAKE THE MONSTER STAT CAP INCREASE LIKE BEFORE BUT LET THE GUILD STATS INDICATE HOW FAST THE GROWTH RATE WILL BE BEFORE GETTING THE MONSTERS IN THE SHOP! Can you also lower the cost of the monster pens if you are not going to change the stat cap system?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The monster stat system's going to get gutted and redone from scratch at some point, so working on what there is now is a waste of time.

    2. Plus, that's what BREEDING is for. Ya know, the point of the game; it's even in the title.

    3. Well...after all one even gets 2 of these royal Efl Juices very soon after the start, so you can BREED Monsters with better stats very fast.

  20. Just a guess to the new Harpy variations:
    1. Sae from Amagami
    2. Not sure
    3. Iori from IM@S
    4.Yuko from Nichijou
    5. Band girl from Kill la Kill
    6. Rukia from Bleach

    Im guessing using the Harpy variations on the right but, I'm certain that I am right about Sae, Iori, and Rukia.

    I actually like the new design of Lily but, I thought lily was a nun. Her new costume looks less like a nun and more of a skinsuit. Then again I guess she is separated from the church now.

  22. How does the mpregrate debugcode work exactly? 'cause I can't get it to work.
    If I put down 100, does that set the breed chance to 100%?

    Also, breeding monsters that both have "Too Stronk 1" only counts once.
    Is that how it whould work?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. First question: No, it makes in a 1 in 100 chance. (15% default btw) The number X makes the chance 1/X. So you want a 1 if you want a 100% chance.

      Second question: Too Stronk only modifies breeding modifiers and only happens once as it is first created. If you are just talking about breeding the trait to higher levels, then a trait from a parent has roughly a 50% chance of carrying over to the child. If the child gets a rated trait from BOTH parents the trait stacks and the ratings are added together. So there's a chance may get a trait from just one parent or neither; part of the game is selectively breeding monsters and only keeping specific ones for breeding purposes. True Breeding is a stack trait that at level 10, will guarantee that ALL traits of that parents will carry over. Hope that answered what you were looking for.

      Delete
    2. Thank you for the first answer!

      On the second I should have been more specific.
      What I meant was: 1. Trying to breed 1 monster with Too Stronk 1 with a monster without shows 13% fertility.
      2. Trying to breed 1 monster with Too Stronk 1 with another monster with Too Stronk 1 also shows 13% fetility.
      Although I remember 1. being 20% before. Will the pregrate code interfere with this? And can you remove the code after you get the baby you want?

      Delete
    3. Too Stronk has nothing to do with the fertility chance; it manipulates the breeding modifiers (the plus/minus). Notice the signs change color from time to time? It's because there is a number hidden there and that is what Too Stronk messes with. For fertility, look for Holstaurus with Fertile rated trait.

      As for removing the code, I'd assume you could just use it again and put it back to it's default (15 I believe). Saving, closing and reopening the game probably work; I don't really use the cheat codes normally (other than to check that they work; probably should at some point).

      Your occurence of 20% was either someone had Fertile, or you feed Milk to one of them.

      Delete
    4. .... or feed a consumable that contained Healthy (Milk has it default).

    5. Thank you kind human!
      I just missunderstood the terms then.
      That explain why the CHA stat skyrocketed too.

  26. I'm the only one that not happy about harpies? Their face structure is weird. (especially first one) I know it's a side view but it's too narrow between eyes, and position of nose tip with bridge is dislocated. also those eyes-nose ratio is make them look like loli.
    I preferred old harpies, imo.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This game is the most beautiful thing the internet has produced in a long, long time. Donating more seems like the least I can do for all the hard work.

    That said, and it seems to get said a lot so I know I am not even close to the only one to say this, but I really enjoyed the petite-framed gals in the original. It seems there is a BBW-standard thing with the new design? I hope thick-style isn't going to be the standard (I'm guessing one of the artists prefers it personally?), and I don't think I'm the only one hoping that. There are a lot of comments against it from what I have seen. Why not just make a weight-preference option to solve it once and for all? No negativity intended... but to be honest, the body type change seems forced and not everyone likes it. Two cents.

    ReplyDelete
  28. aren't harpies supposed to be a bit bitchy and be more mature looking? seeing them with innocent faces turns me off a bit. It's nice to see variety but they all have an innocent look to them.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I want some clarification here, do the hotfixes and such count as a "per game update" for Patreon, or are those only including major updates, such as 4.7 to 4.8 and so on.
