So there is bad news and good news.
The bad news is: I've quickly realized that the stat overhaul is going to require more time. There's just a massive amount of refactoring that I have left to do as I go about changing a lot of the fundamental code structure of the game and I want to make sure that I take my time with it and have everything designed in detail ahead of time so that I never have to rewrite this much code ever again. With luck and good planning I should be able to make the game a lot more stable and make the process of adding new functionality far more efficient. I'm going to shoot for having the stat overhaul in the game by the end of next month, but it will depend a lot on how much I end up deciding I have to rewrite as I go about doing my code audit. On the plus side, I've gotten to see just how much I've improved as a software designer and programmer since I first started this game. Ends up you learn a lot building a project like this from the ground up :P.
The good news is that since I've given up on finishing the overhaul for this update I've been able to focus on a ton of things we've been looking to get into the game for a while instead. I can't guarantee exactly how much of all this is going to make it into 5.1 on Sunday but ideally as much as possible.
We've got two new guild events you'll be able to take part in as an alternative way to accrue guild points and gain some favor with Lily and Cordelia. They were both written for us a long time ago by Tai who is a great writer and a major contributor to BS, but its taken me until now to finally get them in (and if you guys like the events I'll try to coerce Tai into writing more for us :P). We'll also be implementing the map system to allow you to travel to all those new locations we teased earlier, where you'll be able to participate in some special new events!
We've also tried to expand on our animations a lot this month and try some things that are a bit more complex. Below is the the pose set-up for the new catgirl/futa elf animation, as well as a new thing I've been excited to try: additional close-up scenes to animations that let you see a bit more of the penetration going on.
Here are the redesigns that S has done to make the Marquis and Marchioness more in line with the style of the elves you can get in your breeding pens:
Finally, here's your first peek at some Ferals aside from Kala! As you might imagine, Kala claims dominance over a lot of lovers, and happens to have a size-able harem of men at her disposal (an occasional woman too, but Kala is really picky about ladies). These two, Oren and Trisk, are her right and left hand men (literally, she uses her right hand for Oren's cock and her left hand for Trisk's (she demands each of them use both hands for her, of course)).
Trisk is exactly not the kind of person you expect in the Ferals. However, Kala happens to value him because it's hard to keep a village of people who are only concerned with constant, uninterrupted fucking running without someone who is willing to sort out the rather difficult logistics. Like Kay, Trisk happens to be extremely small for his age (he's actually 27; also there's a chance that he and Kay are actually related). Trisk and Kala also share some rather large secrets in their past that will probably surprise you.
