Alpha Build 6.1 for Patrons and 5.9 Public Release

Alright, putting up the new release in a few minutes here. Important: 6.1 has the possibility of breaking old saves. Sorry for the inconvenience; though if you're handy with JSON you should be able to copy and paste old monsters or other save data into a new save file. I may write up a guide for this if I have time and enough people request it.

There's also a lot of balance affecting changes in this newest version, so know that (1) these changes aren't yet balance tested or final, and (2) any feedback on balance going forward is appreciated. Also, there's a high chance that some of the new traits or consumable effects may be broken, and if they're easy fixes I'll try to drop a hotfix as soon as bug reports come in.

6.1 Patch Notes

Additions
- New Lesbian Animations: Catgirl x Holstaurus, Catgirl x Catgirl, Catgirl x Female Elf
- New catgirl idle animation (ears are a bit screwy currently, will fix)
- You can now cycle between different loops in animations by clicking the left and right buttons
- Can now get more complicated requests, with stat and trait requests (the system for generating them is placeholder currently, though)
- New traits: Gross, Altruistic, Selfish, Cruel, Nurturing, Mutagenic
- Traits are now unlocked by completing silver or gold requests (placeholder system; in the future most traits will be unlocked by special requests)
- Added the Church in town (no events there yet)
- Added new hotkeys to some menus
- Added many more of the old events back to the game (some may not have correctly gendered dialog, or may be missing associated consumables, etc)
- Added a number of unique new consumables and consumable effects (gotten through events)
- You can now see what active temporary effects are on your monsters
- You can access the alchemy lab and the building upgrade menu, but neither of them do anything yet

Bug Fixes/Balance
- Normal consumable effects should only last for one day now
- XP bar should no longer show crit XP
- Price should now show correctly when hovering off in the shop menu
- Fixed the jerkiness with ranch scrolling, it's much smoother now
- It's way easier to breed higher growth modifiers (maybe too easy?)
- You get a lot more gil from fulfilling monster requests now
- Pregnancy chances should now display correctly at high %s
- Fixed some other minor visual issues with various menus

Known Issues
- You may have trouble loading saves from earlier versions
- The Alchemy Menu and Building Upgrade Menu don't work yet, so the Alchemy Building is not worth buying
- Marchioness quest can't be completed yet, nor can you get the Lily volunteering quests in the guildhall yet
- Can't sort by monster type in the Item menu yet
- There's no tutorial yet
- Pretty much all of the in-game stat and price values are placeholder; do not expect things to be remotely balanced just yet
- "I hate words" can cause strange issues (maybe you should try liking words more)

As for the 5.9 public release: I'm considering this version stable enough to replace 5.3 altogether. 5.9 patch notes can be found here:

  5. Dickwork Jizz isn't added heart or stats.

  6. To confirm earlier findings, Dickwolf Jizz is broken. Also broken is the Demon/Holstaurus animation, layers seem to have been re-arranged.

  8. Demon x Holstaurus animation is broken at the moment, it works but there is some z-index/clipping issues.

  9. Fantastic! Really shaping back up into a fine game from the overhaul! Gotta tell ya, it feels good to be given trait rewards again so that there is more reason to breed up some monsters to fulfill gold/silver requests other than 'need dat gil yo.' Course, the new animation additions are also much appreciated.

    Gross is a confusing trait to me. I feel like there's more to it than what i'm seeing or else it wouldn't be a reward. On the plus side, obtaining it and trying to invoke its' effect made me notice that there is an 'effects' bit on the breeding screen now. Man, how did I miss that at first?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'll be honest and say that Gross being a trait reward was an accident :P

    2. Oh. The more ya know. Good thing I found this out before I tried trying to figure out potential hidden effects.

  10. Uh Hbomb your first three new debugs codes are really creepy and i have a report. other than that the Alrarune Nectar is bugged on the female breeder the modifier goes permanent once you use it on her, to me the money system is almost fairly balanced, I like how the AlraruneSap event now allows you to choose what consumable you want to give it instead of the best consumable being used up. as for the DelilahDebt I like the debut going up by 1000 gil but could I'm not sure weither the old debt collection was better or not. Also I've noticed some slight lag but it might just be me. Other than that This update is by far the most playable and enjoyable so Thank very much again for the great update

  13. is the akiko's pink pearl susposed to disappear after use after a while if not i just found another bug

    1. It appears to me that it wil dissapear the first time you try to use it AFTER getting its' quality maxed out. I thought it might've been a feature, but it took my Extravagant Elf Juice with it.

      I plan on doing further poking about with it. Stuff like whether or not it'll take ALL of the consumeables listed after it, if it matters if it's the first/last consumeable listed, and if I can replicate it at all.

      Delete
  14. Hbomb, could you add next/previous buttons to the creature pens? It's easy to forget a creature's name, and it would be nice to be able to cycle through all the creatures in a given pen.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What do the letters E and D mean next to the stats? My brain is still stuck in the old system.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think that's the chance of it increasing upon level with A being the highest chance and - having no chance. not sure though.

      Delete
    2. Well, the percentages in the items you can feed them make me feel like it's a 100% total to level a stat to the next number in sequence. For instance, if you used the Pink Pearl at 20% to all, and the Stamina stat was at 80% (not that you could see that, but imagine), it would level up from use.

      The letters are to show what the stat's Rank is, so a dash " - " is a stat below E, showing that it can advance quite a bit more, whereas a stat at " B " is nearing its maximum, and " A " is the stat's max. Haven't done enough testing to quantify that with proof, but that's what I got from my time on it.

  16. One of the demon animations is broke aside from the Holstaurus. I think it is either the cat or the elf, but at one point the dick seems to separate from the demon completely. Unless that was intentional?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow cows realy got hit hard with bugs this update:
    -Holstaurus x stalion animation is broken
    -Holstaurus milk effect somtimes gets stuck on creature and buffs it forever (unless thats intended)
    -Holstaurus model somtimes have part of the ui stuck in the model (huge purple frame is stuicking out of their side)

    New animations are great tho

  18. nice job thx for the upate but to say 5.9 can replace 5.3 is just wrong. 5.3 is the most complete version of the game sofar. I think it is going to take a couple of updates more till we will see the same content as we have in 5.3

    ReplyDelete
  19. I got a dickwolf that generates 11.399999999999999 hearts on average. Don't know if this can be reproduced but it has 'All Night Long' 5 and Stamina 9.

    And as someone mentioned before the pink pearl disappears apparently when it goes from 50% to 55%. Might be intentional but I guess it's probably not.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Okay, this has been bothering me for a long time now, so it's lesson time.

    First, it's spelled "y'all," NOT "ya'll." Note the location of the apostrophe and the fact that "y'all" is a contraction of "you" and "all." Second, seeing what two words form this contraction, it therefore follows that the word is used only in the plural, NOT the singular.


    I appreciate you trying to introduce "southern" or "country" slang into Roxie's vernacular, but please do it correctly or not at all.

    1. I tried to make her Southern accent deliberately super fake :P

      I could fix the location of the apostrophe now that you pointed it out, but instead I'm going to leave it in to make you mad

      Delete
    2. Guy catches your mistake, explains it and even provides a reference for future use and you... "leave it to make him mad"? What the fuck is wrong with you? He didn't even seemed "mad" nor in any way aggressive or insulting.
      You're just obnoxious.
      Your justification for making her accent super fake doesn't even make any sense - this is a completely grammar mistake and in no way way stylization on her (yours) part. To sound "super fake" she would, for example, inject said "y'all" in every possible sentence as in her mind that sounds "southernly", not put the apostrophe wrongly (since you can't exactly put apostrophes while speaking).

      Delete
    3. Unless that's some kind of a joke on your part, in which case I apologize - but it doesn't exactly sound har-har to me.

    4. Was definitely a joke, Anonymouse. tomaitos' gif should've confirmed it.

      It wasn't too funny with the comment alone, but the follow up gif made it hilarious.

  23. does aitakos pink pearl disappear at some point taking one other consumable with it?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm quite alarmed by new dickwolf concepts. His posture and muzzle are becoming just way too humane. Old dickwolves used to be closer to werewolves, and new appear to be more human-like... In a wrong way. It's cool that you want to stress the difference between feral and non-feral, but mosnters are not furries. At least I hope that you still stick to this principle.

    ReplyDelete
  25. So after about 8+ hours of playing this, with varying strategies (breeding the best Futanari-class monster, breeding a monster with the most traits, etc), here are some bugs i've come across (Apologies if these have already been fixed/noted):

    - Aitako's Pink Pearl disappears after (presumably) reaching 55%, a stat beyond the 5-star rating, taking items with it.
    - Monsters with certain traits reducing energy usage (Greased Lightning) actually Increase your total energy for the day when mated instead of reducing it. In some cases, even harvesting Gave energy, though in these cases the items normally harvested did not appear in the inventory. Unsure if related to Aitako's Pink Pearl. Additionally, only Dickwolf Jizz of 1-star variety showed up in the inventory after harvesting Dickwolves, and nothing for the other mosnters.
    - Items giving temporary boosts give permanent boosts; Catgirl Squirt, Stallion Cum, Holstaurus Milk all continued to give boosts after the first day. Unsure if that was intended, but i'm noting it here regardless.
    - Saw it mentioned earlier, but Mermaid drop doesn't give an item. Assuming it's not been programmed, and is just a placeholder.

    All in all, really pleased with how the game's coming along, and it just keeps looking better. Style changes are interesting and good, and breeding works a fair bit better now. I won't post any suggestions here, as i'm sure that gets annoying, but I just wanted to note those above issues I found in case they hadn't been found yet. Keep being awesome!

    1. Tieranus In addition to what you have above: Alarune Nectar gives permanent boost, Harpie consumable does the same, although as state it's not a negative bug it still is there as stated above but there is a specific way that it remains permanent well for me at least if you give a monster or breeder one of the stated consumables above the boost will disappear. Now if you give a monster or breeder on of the stated consumables above the switch to another monster quicky feed them the same consumable and as soon as the boost is shown click breed and then the boost will remain.

  26. Finally had some time to try out 6.1; it's good to see that the clients are not just about levels now.

    Things I've noticed:

    1) There is a noticeable delay between clicking the pen and the pen tab appearing that does not exist anywhere else.
    2) Pressing 'E' in the pen does not open consumable to use; toggles blue/orange instead. However you choose to fix it though, don't lose that toggle (using 1 and/or 2 is a little unwieldy; should just be a single button, not two different ones).
    3) Animation that were probably mentioned already: Wolf on Wolf hand discoloration, Female Breeder rape events still appear even if you chose the male Breeder.
    4) Failing a clients' response in time should lower their affection. Perhaps even lose affection if you did someone else's instead (as nobody likes it when someone cuts in line).
    5) No Traits menu anymore: Don't even know what's available anymore or what's left to unlock.
    6) No way to pull up a general inventory/stock screen of beasts in my possession at any time. Only if it's part of the pen/shop functionality.

    Still not as interesting to play as 5.3, but it is beginning to show progress. Still needs a new walkthrough though; still unclear on what we expect from breeding or offspring results.

    Question: Is Human Intelligence/Adaptability in 6.1 yet? I've completely lost track of what is out there anymore.

  27. Is there a chance to have interactions with the NPC's in the game? Like relationships or sex between the main character and, let's say for example, Margo or Kay? It seems like a fair request considering all the characters in the game are sex interested. Maybe allow each NPC to give benefits like cheaper building or increase monster exp so that it has purpose. Even without sex scenes so it makes it easier. To have Delilah in this would be cool for something like reduced price or longer time. I think it would considerably help the players especially those who have trouble fulfilling requests. A tutorial would also be nice, especially for new players. I've been playing the game for awhile and even I feel like I don't know what I'm doing. The animation is good but to add ideas like this would really help players as a whole and help them keep going forward, especially since not all the monsters have sex animations. I hope you take these into consideration.

  29. The bug where the "itemquality" field is allowed to generate values over 10 for consumables is breaking the game such that items including and after instances where "itemquality">=11 will not show up. However, they will still get saved into the save file. This is the reason why things consumables and items are disappearing. You forgot to do your bound checking for functions.

  30. In the breeding menu after selecting two monsters to breed switching between the tabs the xp gain only switches once and then gets stuck and doesn't switch back when switching between tabs again. Hovering over a monster in the list resets the xp so it displays correctly again.

    If you are in the pens when fulfilling a request the pens don't update so after fulfilling the request the monster can still be harvested/donated. Same goes for the breeding menu the monster can still be bred one more time if the menu was opened when the request got fulfilled.

    When receiving a new monster through breeding or wildcatgirl/wilddickwolf events you can choose to keep it then click the donate button to receive 1gp for donating it and confirm the name afterwards to get the monster.

    You probably already know this but the traits don't show up when choosing a monster for a request or choosing one to be donated when a new monster is bred.

  32. the breeder needs redoing or at least in the next update can you allow the breeder to have his/her own set of debug codes/cheat codes I've spend two days now feeding the female breed a eff ton 5 star consumables and got her up to being able to be breed 6 times but the amount of times she can be fed remains the same only once

  33. After I imported a game all the consumeables after the first 7 were gone. after selling one of the one of the missing ones reappeard. Tried to reset the inventory by selling everything but it turnd out I couldn't even receive any new consumeables neither throug buying, breeding nor through events.

    Monsters that have reached level 100 do not gain stats through breeding anymore. I can't be completely sure this is not related to the importing issue but I would guess it isn't. So if someone could confirm this...

  34. Something I just noticed is that Futa have no pregnancy chance with other females. I don't know if that's intentional or not, but it was something that could be done in earlier versions.

    Also, it would be really nice if once the basics are all done if we could get cumshot frames added to all the animations that don't have them.

  36. Sound and breeder stat cannot be toggled, store not recycling monster itself anymore, skipping text can avoid the loan shark from taking your gold in the beginning and every month. Btw what's consumable for? milk does not increase pregnancy chance anymore.
