Hello everyone, we're finally here with the version 0.29 release!
We had a few last-minute issues with system interaction bugs because we made several changes to the sleep and job systems. They're resolved now, but they can be a bit of a pain because they usually only happen when things interact in a certain way.
This release ended up going off on something of a tangent, as mentioned in an earlier dev blog post, but that has probably led to more content overall than we would have had. I'm pretty proud of some of the events and content we've got in this one, such as the Seedbed event at the Bureaucratic Corps, the Mermaid event if you stay awake and pass out too often, and some of the hucow events in the new Dairy Hand job. I'm pretty proud of the creation I'm calling a "hecow", something of a submissive male hucow.
You'll find out all about them in the dairy hand job, though they're still pretty rare compared to hucows at the dairy. Speaking of cows, you can now get the bovinex gene mod that will give you some cow features and bigger udders. There are a few other new transformatives in the breast/milk department, and some revision/improvement of the existing Lactamax drug. We've also got stronger milkers, as well as improvements to and fixes for the lactation/breast system in the game in general.
We discovered an overlooked problem: some players just wouldn't go to sleep. Because high fatigue was penalized, and we had other things to encourage sleep, we expected players to go to sleep at night, which is important for the game mechanics. We didn't expressly force the player to sleep, we figured that the penalties and encouragement would be enough. As it turned out, some players would just skip sleep, perhaps using naps or other methods to regain a little fatigue as needed, and mostly ignore the penalties. This caused plenty of bugs for them, along with difficulty with maintaining their stats, which couldn't be replicated on a game where the player sleeps... So now we have the player pass out if they stay awake too long. If they are at home, they sleep normally with a minor penalty. If not at home the player will pass out wherever they are and can be treated to a number of different surprises when they wake up. (The 'worst' surprises won't happen until passing out for the third time.)
As usual, we've got a lot of minor improvements and miscellaneous additions such as the new rape scenes that can happen. It's been a rough month personally, but I'm still pretty happy with what we've got to show you in version 29. I hope you enjoy it!
1) In certain NPC interactions where they contact you, clicking the "send" button after the conversation is over will result in an error popping up. This won't break anything, and you can continue as normal.
2) There may Bestybugs present in certain <<has>> macro uses he has created.
3) The comparisons for weekly changes in the end-of-week summary are pretty flakey

Sorry if this has been asked and answered before, but will the game feature more explicit herm/dickgirl content? As in, events made for them?ReplyDelete
Thanks and have a nice Christmas.
Bovinex doesn't seem to do anything at all.ReplyDelete
With the parsed values instead of raw numbers being added, is this going to fix that fact that, despite a preference/presence skew of particularly well-hung NPCs having been set in the menus - purely for scientific purposes, of course - every NPC male with whom I have hooked up is noted as having a "miniscule, tiny, insignificant, etc." member. I ask because having every guy be hung like a baby chipmunk is really killing it for me.ReplyDelete
Also, do we have any idea when the random, public sex events, or any of the random interactions with people at a location(where you walk up and talk to a stranger/NPC, and engage them in conversation) is going to be sorted to a level where it fully functions?
I love the content push, but having a framework for more advanced interactions and events, while simultaneously putting off completing the functionality for even the most basic encounters, like talking to someone at a location, on the street, or better handling of date content(I've gone to the locations of dates at the proper time, and never had a date actually fire, causing me to stand them up and stagnate relationship development) seems, perhaps, a bit counter-intuitive.
Or have I completely missed something that's causing the dates not to fire at the appropriate location/time, or is there some reason why not all stranger/NPC conversations have not been completed, specifically? Issue with the way the system logs the data and event triggers for those interactions, in the code of the game as it presently exists?
