Prowling v1.19 Incremental Change Log

 

The public decency law repeal in Appletree means prowling women can go hunting with everything on display. No more pesky skirts to get in the way of a potential dance-floor fuck.

Incremental Change Log

These are releases made to fix bugs found after the initial release. Those playing the [patron]($1) or [public](free) builds of the game will automatically receive the most recent incremental build for their release. Everyone else will have to download the new game file from Patreon or SubscribeStar, which can be found in their respective initial release post (Prowling Release v1.19 in this case). Re-downloading the resources .zip (the big file) is not necessary!

We try to make sure our initial release is good... but we're not perfect. Thanks for your patience with the bugs!

Version 1.19.1

  • Fixed a bug where the record of certain forms of miscellaneous income (like prostitution) were not getting reset each week, leading to incorrect numbers on finances.
  • Fixed a bug with a backup check for generating hucow NPCs had an extra "s" and caused a red banner. Harmless, but looked bad.
  • Fixed some more Anenn (Airell) bugs that caused some harmless but annoying text issues in certain events.
  • Fixed a bug where the "Dorms" button in the Building B Dairy Dorms Lobby that led to a bad/blank location. Also fixed the Besty Cat Words on the button so it now says "Your Dorm Room"
  • Fixed some formatting issues that could appear in Gestique Clinic fertility boosting treatments page when text size is set to "Large" and above.
  • Fixed tiling of certain background images that could happen on high resolution displays.
  • Fixed the extra </div> found below IUD removal in the Gestique Clinic.
  • Fixed the heat/estrus check so that it won't display when the character has their reproductive cycle suppressed by hucow birth control.
  • Added buttons to the Hucow area of the Dairy so that you no longer see a collapsed action button area.
    • Added option to milk yourself.
    • Added an option to "explore" that results in you seeing an interesting scene before you're caught and shooed away to the Barn Complex.
      • Includes a fun new image.
  • Improved the futa selection area in the character creation menu so that it is no longer a Cat System.
    • Better functionality, particularly when using character randomization options.
    • A more obvious and safer toggle for being or not being a futa.

The Prowling Release - v1.19

 

Three friends out on the town, prowling for men. Will their Mammarex-enhanced tits bring success?

Hey! It's a day early!

Yep. It's ready now, and tomorrow I want to drink a lot of mead at the MN Renaissance Fair, so I'm doing this dreaded change log Friday evening instead of Saturday morning. It's good for an erolich to get out of the code mines every now and then. Also, this way more of you will get a chance to play while it's still the weekend.

I can tell you that this month has been pretty crazy. It feels like I've been doing all the things, and it's gone by in a blur. There's so much stuff. In addition to all the hucow stuff, there's also plenty of other things to enjoy in the base game as well, fertility in particular got some love, but there's also basic things like spreading items to more stores and organizing the store shelves. Also, a lot of cleaning up shit from Anenn (Airell) that was still stinking things up. I never knew a capybara shit so much.

The hucow expansion is coming along nicely, though it's a bit tough to balance new content with new mechanics. We've already got 297,000 characters of writing for hucows, not counting all the location-based stuff. And as we start finishing mechanics/systems, we'll be able to focus more on the word things. I'm pretty excited about it overall, and I really like working on letting you actually play as a hucow instead of just getting transformed into one but otherwise going about the game as normal. It's pretty fun to create the miniature "hucow world" inside of Muschi Valley.

As for non-hucow stuff, well, we'll keep fixing up things here and there, and adding things too. This month I got to improve the way menstrual cycle awareness works, and better implement some of the fertility mutations to match what I was originally aiming for. (I also think it's more fun.)


Besty started getting fascinated by Sluts in Space, so in one of the upcoming releases you might finally get a chance to take part in the crazy space missions hinted at in the female prolog Institute job fair. It'll probably be a scenario resulting in an early end. Who knows?

Institute-Approved Space Wear?

That's it for the talky portion of the change log. I have to move on before this turns into a long series of space babes (potentially with tentacles).

We really hope you enjoy this release! As always, thank you so much for your support. None of this would be possible without you!

    • Previously only tracked number of children born, but number of pregnancies is important for hucows.
  • Pregnancy as a hucow now grows breasts.
    • Both PC and NPCs have their breasts grow hucow style.
    • Replaces the typical human breast growth from pregnancy that's already part of the fertility system.
    • NPCs receive a simplified growth process.

    • Amount of breast growth is based on the number of pregnancies the hucow has had.
    • Developed a central pregnancy udder growth curve to match hucow lore, that controls how much udders grow for a pregnancy.
      • Initial pregnancies are significant and part of the progression of hucow stages.
      • Diminishing returns result in steady but decreasing growth over consecutive pregnancies.
  • Changed the "Slut Parser" so that it only starts altering game text once the "super slut" threshold is reached.
  • Gaining the slut, superSlut, and hyperSlut kinks will now progressively add more of the other kinks to your character.
    • Gaining the first level "Slut" kink is fairly minor, mostly removing shamefast kink and making sure the default kinks are on, so that the kinks are compatible with being a slut.

  • Breast growth in transformative system transformatives will now report changes in breast size rounded to the nearest 10 or 5cc.
    • Still probably way more detailed than a character would reasonably know, but not quite so bad.
  • Transformative icon hovertext will no longer preface items with "Transformative". it looked kinda dumb.
  • The Treatment has been shortened!

    • New Treatment length is 9 days instead of 16.
    • After-Treatment period has also been shortened.
  • New "Sharing is Caring" random Hucow daily job content.
  • The character details menu will now display your character's max erection strength for futa PCs.

    • minor bimbo gain for each dose taken.
    • minor decrease in egg-release and multiple-egg fertility factors.
    • If the player has the multiple ovulation mutation, there is a chance they could lose the mutation.
    • Taking another Jack'd pill while under the effects of a prior Jack'd pill will apply a slightly stronger version of the above side effects in addition to the normal side effects for the pill.

    • Improved the way the fertility system handles ovulation and multiple ovulation mathematically.
      • Previously could cause unintended ovulation results.
    • The multiple ovulation mutation now has a reduced impact on the multiple-egg fertility factor (128 vs 200)
      • This is scaling it to the new numbers, so isn't as much of a nerf as it may seem.
    • Fixed a bug in NPC procedural generation that resulted in npcs with the multiple ovulation mutation having a multiple-egg fertility factor that was way too low.
  • Stores and shops around Appletree had their shopping improved.
    • Several items present only in one store, or absent from a location it would reasonably be, was added to other locations.
    • Inventories were organized by category so that similar goods were kept together and it's easier to find what you're looking for.
      • Even the grocery stores have goods now organized by department instead of being just a random list.
    • You can now buy cum at Whole foods, because why wouldn't you be able to?
  • Taking a fertility booster will now longer violate a "no transformation" marriage vow.
  • Significantly reduced the cost of many drugs and treatments at the Gestique clinic.
    • Costs are intended as a tradeoff with the expectation of enhanced income from babies... but the prices seemed to be too high of an initial barrier.
    • Starting with a normalish fertility and advancing to higher levels seemed to not be a viable play experience for non-cheat players.
  • The FutaFest drug and Semaxin will now cause your testicles to grow.
  • Fertinex gene therapy is now available at all levels of fertility.
    • The benefit to fertility is still capped to reaching level 6

      • This was previously only possible via Progenerate career or hucow Treatment.
  • New Cheat: Now you can disable bad ends from breast and testicle size.
  • Changed how the Hyper Ovulatory Phase mutation works to release multiple eggs, making it slightly less predictable as to when extra ovulation days occur.
    • Even with detailed fertility information, players with this mutation will only report on the primary ovulation day forecast, not on any of the potential ovulation days.
  • Added the much-requested ability to fertilize egg/s in a second womb after already fertilizing the first, from your multiple ovulation days in one cycle due to Hyper Ovulatory Phase mutation.
    • Sperm will be killed after the first fertilization, so you'll have to get more before your next in order to get two pregnancies from one cycle.
    • May result in some weird timing (or seemingly doubled events) when you have two pregnancies only a few days apart.

Makeover Release 1.18 Incremental Changelog

 


Busting out the bug spray

Version 1.18.1

  • Issue still allowing a breast size bad end as a hucow was fixed.
    • Note... you're not supposed to be able to do this, so getting the bad end was the result of players getting creative.
  • Estratitol medication has been altered.
    • Reduced bimbo/brain damage gain from taking this medication by about 1/3rd
    • Nerfed the strength of this medication.
      • First dose now grows each boob about 10,000cc.
      • Subsequent doses have diminishing returns, growing about 7500, 5000, and 3500cc.
    • Taking Estratitol while a hucow will now result in a bad end.
    • After two doses, subsequent doses will have a chance of causing a bad end, increasing to a guaranteed bad end on the fifth dose.
      • Bad end happens shortly after taking the medication, so you don't have to wait around.
  • Fun new bad end "Boobsplosion"
  • Fixed image margin in Russia Medicine store.
  • Some bugs with texting fixed.
  • Totally removed size growth limits on player character penis.
    • Replaced with better system.
    • Old limits could be mistaken as a bug, I suppose.
  • New system for cock size implemented.
    • Now determines volume of cock, rather than arbitrary limits on length or girth.
    • Volume is used to determine maximum hardness level based on a curve of blood required for a cock of that volume to reach various hardness levels, and the available blood to fill said cock.
      • This is a porn game, so we let you put yourself into hypervolemic shock every time you get an erection.
        • No, there are no negative consequences to the hypervolemic shock.
    • Max hardness is used in the pc status for your current erection level. You can't be harder than the max hardness possible.
    • Max hardness is also used in sex in a similar way to impotence. If you can't get your cock to at least a semi-erect state, you can't penetrate.
      • Having a semi-erect (3 of 5) penis will make sex much less pleasurable for your partner. Having an erect penis (4 of 5) will have a minor pleasure penalty.
      • Some new descriptive text to unavailable positions.
      • Some new descriptions in sex skip if fucking with a semi-erect penis.
    • You can now grow your penis as large as you want.
    • You no longer have the option to fap when masturbating if you can't get hard enough. 
  • Tight Threads will display dresses in the dress category.
  • Fixes for interaction issues, most notably with phone numbers or occasional red text.
  • Texting someone while married no longer causes divorce.
  • Hucow applicants with extremely large breasts will now be rejected.
  • Fixed an Anenn bug where launching sex from your BF's house was stupid.

The Makeover Release - Version 1.18

 


So this has been quite the month.

I realized I had been falling into some old bad habits and was working too hard/long again. The issue with being a workaholic is that you can't just give up working like you would give up a substance. You have to keep doing it to live, so you're constantly exposing yourself to temptation. I realized that I had a bit of a relapse when I took a vacation from my day job, and ended up working even more than I had been. Luckily my health hadn't suffered too much, but I'm reminded of the quote "The only people who will remember that you worked late are your children."

So I forced myself into a little bit of a break to destress and try and reset my habits to something healthy. I basically limited myself to working in the evenings after my youngest was in bed. It did help me recover a bit, but really not as much as I should have. I did get to spend more time with the kiddos though. 

The main impact of all this for the game is that because I somehow got it into my head that "with all this extra time to work on the game, I can do X on top of the hucow stuff planned for the release!" but when I scaled back, I found that the work I did on X displaced some of the hucow work. There's still a lot of stuff, but not as much as I had originally planned. I also didn't make any time to do extra incremental releases, so many bug fixes on the 1.17 branch are now only showing up in this release. I'm sorry about that.

That being said, "X" is pretty good stuff. A major project to overhaul how game data is saved, by building functions that take specific data items like an NPC, or clothing item, and convert the data into something that is size-friendly. And another set of functions that converts it back into something usable when a save is loaded. So now game saves are a third the size, and we have more save slots again. The fun bit is that saving and loading ends up being slightly faster, because of the reduced overhead for compression. I also had to build in some things that would allow older saves from previous game versions to be loaded into the new game, cause losing those older saves would suck.

Another thing that I did as part of "X" was some improvements to the game's UI. Finally got rid of the silly phone interface, and now the UI is more unified and looks nicer. Lots of tweaks and improvements there, from the portrait images to font sizing, and even making things a little friendlier to smaller screens. I also replaced the game's title image with something nicer (the original photoshop never seemed quite right to me), and redid the tutorial image sequence with way less words, fewer slides, and to-the-point images that show up-to-date info. Also, several smaller things to improve gameplay.

As far as Hucow stuff goes, we have the full transformation sequence to juvenile hucow along with a lot of balancing/improvement to how that works, more background mechanics, hucow estrus (heat), more content, and other stuffs. Let's get to the change log!

Thanks for all your support!

Known Issues

It hurts to have to include this, rather than having all the known issues fixed, but Besty dropped the ball a bit on the Besty Bugs assigned to him this month, and I was only able to squish so many before needing to do the release. None of these seem to be new, or particularly impactful. We'll get em' in the next incremental.
  • Mod dresses created in Tight Threads allows for an incorrect value entry that causes it to be listed in "Tops" instead of "Dresses".
  • There seems to be a bug when multiple attempts are made to pick up an NPC via "NPC Interaction" in a single day. It appears to be an issue with data not being properly reset/reinitialized.
    • Can show up as red errors, issues with getting phone number (or retrying to get phone number) and rarely some other minor issues.
  • There are some issues with incorrect filenames on AI portrait images, causing certain ranges of female NPCs to use svg portraits instead, or have incorrect features. This one isn't Besty's fault, it'll just take some grunt work to fix the automated filenames.

Changes

Treatment Release Incremental Change Log 1.17.X

 


1.17.1

A little git fuckery and a tweak for better game experience. There's still a couple bugs to fix, but the git fuckery bug causes a big-enough issue for the backer build that I wanted to release this right away. 
  • Fixed an issue where changes in the 1.16 bugfixing branch was overwritten on merge into the 1.17 branch without notification of a conflict. This results in the time chunking status subfunction to crash in the backer build specifically. It means that some status items are not running in 1.17.0 [backer] including lactation, exhibitionism, semen refractory mechanics, fluid calculations, etc.
  • Fixed skirts getting dirty from vaginal fluids leaking between the legs. I know that yes, if sitting, with enough liquid, the skirt *could* get dirty... but that's no fun. Also, the fluid mechanics all assume a standing position anyway, so it wasn't supposed to happen anyhow.
  • Changed notification of panties getting wet with femlube so that it only occurs once panties are sufficiently wet, and not just getting a little damp.

The Treatment Release - v1.17

 


The friendly nursing staff of the Farm Coop's Dairy Division welcome you to version 1.17!

As you'd expect, the majority of work this month focused on hucows, and there's a lot of new stuff to see and experience. A lot of it is behind-the-scenes mechanics type stuff that you'll only notice as a small bit of text or things behaving differently, but we've also got a lot of new content and the brand-new Transformative System.

The Transformative System is something I've been planning primarily for the Transformatives Expansion option as a way to better handle longer-term effects and major changes to the player's character. It reveals information about changes in a more systematic and detailed way, rather than depending on the player to notice any changes that aren't explicitly described themselves. The reason I went ahead and built it now is because the hucow changes are so significant, they'd benefit from a proper transformation process. It made more sense to do it now, than have to come back later and redo a temporary solution.

You can now live in your dorm as a hucow, and experience more content and locations in the map areas. While the job itself isn't complete, there's some new events involving your second day as a hucow (quite large) and follow on events for your "pre-treatment" period where Doc Mya prepares you to undergo the real Treatment. The real Treatment is fully implemented as well in the transformation system. I think it's pretty cool.

I also redid bovinex as a transformative, in case you want to see the system without actually playing as a hucow. We've got a new body-writing restaurant, and there's just been a ton of mechanics stuff tweaked, adjusted, or expanded for the glory of hucows. 

I'm actually running mostly on blessed caffeine right now due to lack of sleep, so I'm having a hard time remembering everything we did. Luckily I've got pages and pages of git commits to jog my memory for the actual change log. I think you'll like this release!

Thanks for your support!
