Progress Update and Public Release 5.3

Worked on fleshing out the classes responsible for constructing monsters for the store and from breeding, as well as implementing revisions to how traits are generated and applied today. These changes should deal with most of the trait-associated bugs that are still present in the last release.

The monster building methods are also going to be significantly more granular now so there's more room for manipulating how monsters are made, which will make it easier to add unique monsters you can get from events in the future.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to get the new breeding menu together and working and then move on to the rest of the UI.

In addition, here are the 5.3 patch notes: http://breedingseasongame.blogspot.com/2014/09/alpha-build-53-for-patrons.html

  1. Any idea if the new public release will be hitting soon? I get it if you want to wait and do them both at the same time, but I just figured I'd ask.

    1. I almost forgot that I said I'd put up the public release tonight; I'll do so in twenty or so minutes.

  2. Re-asking for last time in hopes you are still lurking around H-bomb.
    1. When I started playing way back, the thing that caught my eye the most were harvesting animations. When S-Purple joined I dreamed of how they would look with these new artistic skills.
    You mentioned that giving SEX animations for every pairing would become ludicrous later on when new monster types were created, rising exponentially the amount that would have to be done. But harvesting doesn't have this problem, when a new monster type is created just 1 (maybe 2 for the male breeder?) animation is needed.
    On what level of priority are the harvesting animations according to you? From what S-Purple has shown, we are getting straight sex pairing with breeder for all the current existing monster types at least (fem breed vs all male monsters, and male breed vs fem monsters), but we haven't seen anything concerning harvesting. (never, really low, in the super future, soonish on the list, litterally after sex animations, really high)

    2. Small Lore question. Monsters are bred to keep them at bay, they are all about sex, but what if someone wants to have a cat-girl girlfriend? Or be really affectionate with a holstsaurus but not in a sexual way. Do monsters respond in to human emotions, in this case love, in other ways than sex? In the breeding season world, would people get bad looks for treating a harpy or whatever like a wife?. I remember reading that monsters are intelligent but to what extent? Would that play a role in the question I asked?.

    1. Harvesting animations are something we want to put a lot of time and effort into, as there's only one per monster. Every monster will definitely get a harvesting animation, though. I can't say quite yet as far as the timeframe: we haven't finalized what our priorities will be for the the next round of animations yet.

      Monsters are capable of being as intelligent as people, but they don't tend to care for learning language or thinking all that deeply most of the time (it does happen, though). Monsters tend to latch onto more primal emotions, but they can definitely develop more complex relationships in some situations. A person could definitely develop a legit loving relationship with a monster, but it's not the norm. Normal people would find it scandalous, breeders might be a lot more accepting, though.

    2. Yaaay an answer.
      People say the stars of the game are the monsters and the sex they have between them, breeding. But to me harvesting has a special place in my heart, feels like a deeper connection to the game world. Since the player is the breeder, harvesting allows for interaction directly with the monsters.
      So hopefully we will see cool harvesting animations in then near future.

      As for the lore question, for example, I would want my special monsters, the ones that look the best to me and get pampered the most, to be really sad if I die tragically (like getting assassinated by the empire). Instead of just going :D ? and wondering off to find the next dick/pussy to fuck.

      Delete
    3. You can have the breeder interact directly with the monster in breeding as well. If you put the same monster in both slots they will breed with the breeder, it would not surprise me if a lot of people don't know this though because it doesn't seem to be explained anywhere and is not the most intuitive system.

    4. Yeah, I knew about it That's how you get those delicious uber traits (Human Intellect). But you are right that they are obscure though, the only way I knew about them was because back then I read that you could get pregnant and wondered how it was triggered.
      I also should have mentioned in the original post but didn't want to make it too long, but yeah back then it was harvesting that caught my eye. It was so sexual yet, not really having sex with monsters (Although dickwolf ended up fucking the breeder after the load was secured the intent was just to harvest there)

      Which leads me to the thought that, I would love to keep the harvesting animations as sexual as possible, yet not being just another sexual position animation, to keep the actual sex animations between breeder and monsters unique.
      For example, a holstsaurus harvesting animation could have both fem and male breeder behind the holstsaurus with one hand on her breasts and another fingering her vagina. Maybe is H-Bomb and S-Purple are feeling generous we can have a 2 part one where one animation is both hands on breasts from behind and a second animation where the breeder is sucking on her breasts while fingering her. Keep the sex animation as penetration/trib.
      Or a harpy example, harpy hovering above while breeder does oral, then fingering for the juices/consumables.
      Make harvesting all about pleasuring the monster, and sex with them about both participants genitals.

    2. Seems quite the opposite. They're not going up by the minute, but there's more people pledging then there's people pulling their pledge.

    3. Why would people stop their patronage when that's only going to slow this amazing project? We've already seen a ton of great work done, why endanger that?

  9. How the hell do you breed a monster that has Incorrigible, Mutagenic and Gentle?

    1. Descendants have a % to get their parents' traits, so it all boils down to RNG.

    2. The Key to all of those types of question is to breed a human intellect monster ASAP... then they can learn whatever traits you need

  12. Not to be debbie downer, but this is all expected. HBomb has good intentions but has never proved he could put things together. People pledged anyways which really shows the interest in the game. As long as the people running this show remain, I wouldn't expect really anything any time soon. Let the critic bashing begin.

    1. You're right, he hasn't been able to put things together in a timely manner, and has missed far more deadlines than he's met. But he just hired a Project Manager, which is the best we could hope for, meaning someone else is in charge of structuring the plan forward.

      But that doesn't mean that a ton more work is magically done right now, changes take time.

      Delete
    2. The game is finally starting to lose funding so hopefully we can see him actually starting to act professional at some point.

      Really this is his fucking full time job so a single iota of professionalism is probably appropriate in consideration of that fact.

      Delete
    3. I'm confident that he is sincere in getting it done, otherwise he wouldn't have hired someone else to do part of his job, and promised to make a progress post every single day until the next update.

  13. Hi and thanks for this amazing game.

    I have a "tiny" problem: my save (BreedingSeasonAlphaBuild5.2.sol) can't seem to work with the new 5.3 release.
    I have renamed the file and put it in the new macromedia folder but meh, doesn't work. Is there something else to do?
    (in other fash games it works, hence my confusion.)

    Thanks.

    1. chek patreon page -> activity there you can find some info about your problem

  14. Ello there.
    This might get some unwanted bashing but here goes...
    Any update on Non Futa related content? No, I'm not a big fan of futa, but generally I don't care if they are there so long as I can enjoy more Non Futa stuffs.
    Male Breeder, More Hetero Anims, Hetero Story Line? Yes Hetero Stuff, Homo is not my Fetish, but again: Don't care so long as I can enjoy the game with out it.
    By the sound of it the Marchioness will be pretty much Futa related. I think this since it did say "Start of her Questline" but since she is a futa and it never once said that she'll stop being one.
    I can sorta understand why Futa is central atm... Since the PC is currently only Female. And as far as I can remember there's more Female NPCs than male. Meaning if you want a D in your Breeder then you either get it from your monsters or Most likely Futas at this point...
    One way to satisfy Non Futa lovers might be just to finish up all the incomplete Hetero/Lesbo Stuff... At least then they'd have something to chew on that's not your leg or your ears.
    It's like a balancing trick... If you don't calm one side they'll get rowdy.

    Anyways to those that will say: Alpha, yadayadayada, incomplete, yadayadayada, Quit whining, yadayadayada, Be a Donator, yadayadayada.
    Was just putting my 2 cents.

    I wish for The Breeding Season Group Good health (Since it seems like alot of Independent H game makers get sick... alot. Too much Fapping?) and continued progress with this game. Keep on Breeding and watch out for the former Butt Stallions... They don't Discriminate

    1. You expressed some worry about backlash, and rightfully so. Fans of Breeding Season have shown themselves to be volatile. However, yours is one of the better-worded messages. It's funny you mention specifically that futa seems to be the focus, and in actuality there is a new monster type (Seraph) gated behind the Marchioness. H-Bomb said that he did that without realizing that some people wouldn't care for that, and would consider it moving forward. On top of that, the not-yet-implemented Male Breeder will be sure to scratch some of your itches. I don't see a problem with you putting in your two cents, but pre-empting people saying that it's in alpha doesn't make it any less true. So here's me saying it: it's still in alpha. But don't worry, I'm right there with you.

    2. The line of "yadayadas" was just my way of saying I know all that stuff, so don't go lynching me for it. And I know you aren't so Kudos!
      As for the Not yet implemented Male Breeder... There has to be alot of content IDEAS for him I hope. As I have said before there is alot more Female NPCs than male so I would assume that there's some events specifically for them probably getting them preggers in line with the game's title. But the Male Breeder doesn't seem like it'll be coming soon so that's one thing that's been irking some folks.
      It's a step forward to giving the NPCs life and the game some depth/challenge. But people may or may not be into the sub fetish involve. I say sub since this whole game is one big fetish in it's self: Breeding/Impreg. Who or what is doing the Impreg and the pregging are the Sub Fetishes. Back to the the whole Seraph thing. I like the idea of being able to unlock em by doing a small quests. But then it makes you wonder: Why did it have to be Marchioness that you had to interact? Why not her brother? That would have made it Hetero while still having the "Breeding" aspect. This is where the whole "Futa" thing last month happened. The work that is put to making that scene is ALOT and I don't think they will be planning or putting alot of Variations into them. Since IF they do add the Male Breeder they will have to make a Pitching and a catching quest line to Marchioness, other wise they will only change the Breeder's Gender but not necessarily the interaction with the NPC.
      This also Defeats the purpose of having a Male PC since if you think about it there would be more content geared for female breeders.
      It's a bit of a mess in the plans. I don't think HBomb started the game with a possibility of having a Male Breeder. I mean adding a new PC is like making a new game in itself. Another thing that isn't planned very well is content. Right now it feels like they want to do something all at the same time that it's hurting them. Get the basics down first. All the content that's already IN they game be finished before adding new stuff. Which is why I'm not a big fan of the "Donate Money and we'll add something you want" idea. The game is in Alpha, not even Beta. They should be more focused on getting the core done rather than messing around with extra stuff. I do think they should be open to the different possibilities while working on the core. Making it easy/organized enough that you can add or remove content in the future with out having to rework the whole game.
      They aren't a big group either. Atleast not big enough to make 2 groups: One working on the core game and one making the Extra content. Coder, Artist, Animator for each group. 2nd coder needs to know how the core coder is doing so that his code is uptodate. 2nd Artist needs to match the Lead artist's style so that there's no weird transitions.
      Or just bypass all that and just go with the most simplest route: Finish Base/core game, move to Beta, THEN consider adding new content. Cause at that point most of the core programming is done, easier to add stuff.
      One reason that I THINK stuff Purple made are not in the game yet is largely due to the fact the coding isn't finalized or even done yet.
      I'm not working on the project and I'm already making my head spin... One has to wonder how the Breeding Season group is keeping their mental health...

  16. I wouldn't count on it. This build is supposed to be a major code rework to make things easier moving forward. Don't expect new features for a bit.
