Alpha Build 6.4 for Patrons

So here's the deal: setting up the new color system is still in progress, as we continue to go back through the old animations and update them to work with it. Unfortunately, until this is done no new monsters or animations that the art team have been working on can go into the game quite yet. Additionally both Fleet and I will be on family trips during the next week.

As a compromise, we're going to release 6.4 right now as a relatively smaller update, and have a larger update with a number of new and updated monster types planned for mid-August.

Also, as a heads up: S has some great new pin-ups we're putting up before the end of the month as well.

6.4 Patch Notes

Additions
- You can now purchase building upgrades for buildings on your ranch
- Auto-Harvester: Building upgrade that allows you to have monsters harvested automatically when they reach full hearts, but only harvests half as many consumables
- Feeding Trough: Building upgrade that allows you to add a stack of consumables to a monster's trough to be automatically eaten by them every day, by selecting them in their pens
- Added weather effects to the ranch, now you can see some pretty snow, rain, and leaves falling in autumn
- There are now days of the week: this doesn't have much of an effect now, but eventually NPCs and shops may have schedules

Bug Fixes / Balance
- The store will notify you when there's new monsters now
- Fixed a bug where harvesting level 100 monsters would break the inventory

Known Issues
- 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)

The next public release will probably be around the 4th of August. And unfortunately that save editing guide is going to be a bit delayed as well, but should be up around the time we do the next Patron release.

  1. How might I go about getting these new upgrades? I tried going to Levi but to no avail. :P

    1. You access them directly through the building menu. For instance, if you want to upgrade your catgirl building, click on the catgirl building, then click one of the "construction sign" icons, and it'll give you a choice of the three building upgrades. Rinse and repeat.

  9. I noticed a bug. The feeding trough pops up only in the Elves housing and looks jumbled.

  11. Version 6.4 the inventory breaks after a certain amount of items have been placed in it. The "break" consists of 1. The scroll-bar dissapearing (however earlier collected items can still be accessed by selling what is listed above it) and 2. The inventory being unable to store any new items.

    1. After the construction of the laboratory at his ranch in the inventory things begin to disappear. Moreover if you have your pet used to the machine milked after the construction of the laboratory, this process is terminated, and new items in the inventory does not appear (even with manual milking). Plus, if you use the available items from the inventory on your Pets Lost, some details (randomly ( random )) begin to deteriorate without parameters Pets Lost items during training simply do not increase (increasing the level of parameters - no). It looks like a serious bug in the game.

    1. It might be sometime this month the team has been working very hard on reworking the vanilla monsters and making the gender and neoteeny variants.

      So after that they then have to cut them up then make the hair and faces and lastly the idle animations.

    2. Hope they keep up the good (and hard) work. If I had a job i'd become a backer but alas I have like 60 cents to my name. XD

  20. Why I can only "upgrade" a building with 1-star rooms? Why can't I build others too?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. because the other rooms have not yet been implemented yet.

  21. Wish there was some kinda way to bypass the incest penalty aside for incorrigible, I kinda love of the idea having a monstergirl harem and maybe a way to give your male breeder temporary traits so you wont have to resort of raising a male/futa version of the monster to breed to get multi-stat monster.(Please let my prayers be heard >.<)

  22. is there a delay on the public version, this post said it would be out around the 4th and no sign yet

    ReplyDelete
  23. just a quick question seeing as i cant seem to find it anywhere else. what are the current caps on both the rank of you stats and also you traits, such as all night long. i know this might seem a little out of place but the last version i played was version 5.3 shortly after that my old laptop died.

  24. Will there be a public version of this update?
