Plan for v0.3.9

Hello again,

I don't think that there are any severe game-breaking bugs in v0.3.8.1, so instead of putting out another hotfix, I'm going to roll my current progress into v0.3.8.5. There are just a few things left for me to finish off for this next version, so I hope that it won't take me too long to get v0.3.9 finished (although filling in the placeholders for the Rat Warrens might take some time).

Anyway, to let you know what I'm going to be working on, here's my plan:

v0.3.8.5 (Preview):
- Add Dominion Enforcer encounters (this will just be a very small encounter).
- Fill in more of the Rat Warrens placeholders.
- Fix bugs.

v0.3.9 (Full Release):
- Finish filling in Rat Warrens placeholders.
- Add a small amount of new content (only things which are very limited in scope, such as adding the spa room upgrade).
- Fix more bugs.

As you can see, I'm not giving myself many targets for this version, as I don't want to get bogged down in adding any more new content when v0.4 (and therefore the Fields content) is so close. Due to always missing them, I won't give release date targets for either v0.3.8.5 or v0.3.9, and instead I will keep you updated with small progress posts while I work on them.

Thank you all for your patience and feedback in the comments.

Version 0.3.8.1 Hotfix

Hello once again,

As you might have noticed if you've tried playing v0.3.8, there were several major bugs in the inventory & enchanting system, which were causing the game to either immediately become unresponsive, or display unusual behaviour later on during play (caused by ongoing errors being thrown in the background). I've fixed these major issues, along with several others which were not game-breaking, but still annoying.

There will probably still be another hotfix on Friday to address some more of the minor issues which remain in this version. If I instead decide to roll those fixes into the next preview version, I'll still be making another post on Friday to let you know what my plans are for v0.3.8.5 and v0.3.9, so I'll see you then!


As always, you can also build these releases yourself from the public github's dev branch (which is always kept up to date with the very latest version):
https://github.com/Innoxia/liliths-throne-public/tree/dev
(There's a build tutorial here.)

IMPORTANT: If you're building through github, you'll now need to place the 'liliths-throne-public/res' folder in the same directory as the exported .jar!

v0.3.8.1 Patch Notes

  • Other:
    • Demons (and imps) have had their chance to spawn with the 'lewd' personality trait increased from 75% to 80%, and their chance to spawn as 'innocent' or 'prudish' lowered from 2% to 1%.
      Newly-generated NPCs who have the 'pure virgin' fetish and the 'lewd' personality trait will now have a higher chance (75% instead of 50%) to spawn in having lost their virginity.
  • Items:
    • You can now recolour the 'Witch's Broom' and 'Feather Duster' weapons.
  • Bugs:
    • Minor parsing & incorrect description fixes.
      Fixed major bug in weapon/clothing/item comparator code which was resulting in the game's inventory breaking in odd places and causing the game to sometimes freeze or become unresponsive.
      Fixed another major bug which was causing the game to freeze when you tried to enchant certain weapons or items of clothing.
      Fixed bug where all clothing equipped by newly-spawned NPCs was unidentified.
      Fixed bug where fluid absorption rates for all orifices were 60 times lower than they should have been. (Fluids in characters' orifices will now be depleted quicker than before, especially when in the stomach.)
      Fixed minor UI issue when enchanting items, where the output image would not always show the correct icon of the item which was going to be created.
      Fixed issues where tattoo effects were being applied just by clicking the add button.
      The 'Secondary Sparks' upgrade to the 'Flash' spell now correctly drains 2 AP from the target, instead of making the effect last for 2 turns (as it was in previous versions of Flash).
      NPCs' status effect updates will no longer spam your event log.
      Fixed issue with no sex actions being available in the milking stall's 'all fours' position.
      The 'Object to rough' sex action is now correctly available to use when the performing character's mouth is blocked. The associated corruption is also now 'pure' instead of 'horny'.
      Scarlett now correctly starts sex with her clothing displaced in the sleepover sex scenes during Helena's romance quest.
      Kate no longer takes your money for daring to change your hairstyle or makeup in your own room.
      Fixed issue with incorrect positioning and no actions being available when dominating Natalya in the 'Mount her' scene. You can now also remove her clothing in sex scenes in which you dominate her.
      Fixed bug where both Natalya's business card and her stamped business card would be in your inventory at once.
      Fixed bug where when wearing the filly collar, Dominion Streets text would incorrectly describe your mouth as being blocked when it wasn't, and vice versa.

    Version 0.3.8 Release

    Hello again,

    Sorry once again for the delay leading up to this release...

    Anyway, after making a couple of changes (which ended up delaying this release), I've finally got Natalya's content finished and fully added into the game. There are also several other minor bug fixes, additions, and changes included in this update. I haven't managed to get Enforcer encounters added just yet, but that will be the last thing that I need to get done for v0.3.9 (along with filling in all remaining placeholder content) before finally moving on to the fields in v0.4.

    I think that there might be some bugs hiding here and there in this version, so I'm currently planning on having a hotfix out on the night of Friday, 29th May (which will only include bug fixes and nothing else). I'll make a more detailed outline of my plans for v0.3.9 alongside that update, so I'll see you again then!

    v0.3.8 Patch Notes

  • Contributors:
    • Fixed issue with SVGs using both gradients and patterns not being able to be rendered at the same time. (PR#1324 by CognitiveMist)
      Added 9 new items of clothing: utility jacket, roller skating helmet, bike racing helmet, roller skating elbow pads, roller skating knee pads, nose guard, joggers, high-top skater shoes, tabi socks. (by Nerdlinger)
      Added an item to represent the 'Slaver License' which you obtain during the main quest. This is retroactively added to your inventory if your character has already completed the associated quest. (by DSG)
      Updated Enforcer beret images, fixed a typo in the SWORD beret description, added 'Enforcer academy' beret, changed the 'civilian' version of the sweatervest to be the same as the regular sweater. (by DSG)
  • Engine:
    • Improved sex stat-tracking.
      Weapons can now unlock combat moves (but as there's no way to add modded combat moves yet, it's not that useful).
      Refactored handling of item/weapon/clothing colours & patterns.
      Tidied up and reformatted alleyway/harpy nest attacker dialogue xml files and associated code.
      Moved cultist dialogue out into external res .txt file.
  • Modding:
    • You can now define any number of colours for recolouring weapon & clothing images. Look at 'res/weapons/innoxia/dagger.xml' and 'res/mods/innoxia/items/clothing/template/socks.xml' for examples of how this is done.
      Outfits xmls can now also define more than primary/secondary/tertiary colours for weapons/clothing. (Look in res\mods\innoxia\outfits\casualDates.dress_toys.xml for an example.)
      You can now set whether items of clothing are described by their colour via an attribute called 'appendColourName' in the 'name' element of clothing XML files. (See 'res/mods/innoxia/items/clothing/template/socks.xml' for an example.)
      You can now set whether weapons are described by their damage type via an attribute called 'appendDamageName' in the 'name' element of weapon XML files. (See 'res/weapons/innoxia/dagger/dagger.xml' for an example.)
      You can now define colours to copy another randomly-generated colour in weapon and clothing xml files. (i.e. Setting tertiary colour to copy index 0 will mean that the tertiary colour will always spawn as the same colour as the primary. See the same 'dagger.xml' and 'socks.xml' files as above for examples.)
      Weapons can now be defined as applying AoE damage. (See 'res/weapons/innoxia/dagger/dagger.xml' for an example.)
  • Gameplay:
    • Added all content and filled in all placeholders for Natalya in Dominion Express (the requirement of being a taur to see her content has been removed). If you'd started this quest in v0.3.7.5, your quest progress will be reset. You will also have a business card in your inventory if you have seen Natalya during Helena's romance quest.
      Randomly-spawned NPCs now spawn into the game with sexual histories, the generation of which is based on their corruption and generated-virginities. Muggers who are pure virgins are less likely to still be in possession of their virginity.
      You can now change your (and your slaves') hairstyle and makeup in your room's 'Bathroom' tab.
      Added a content option in the 'Misc.' category to turn off arcane storm status effect interruptions.
      Added another content option in the 'Misc.' category to toggle the usage of the 'shared encyclopedia', which is turned off by default. (i.e. The default setting is now for each of your saved characters to have their own Encyclopedias.)
      Demons (and angels) are now affected by all transformative potions, but their transformative effects are automatically converted into demonic (or angelic) versions. (i.e. A TF potion which gives the drinker a horse-cock will give a demon a demonic cock instead.)
      Improved alleyway prostitute encounter dialogue, added a way to get rid of prostitutes without having to fight them or first have sex with them, and added companion interaction options with them.
      Re-enabled alleyway and harpy nest encounters during arcane storms. The associated encounter dialogue now correctly reflects the fact that there's an arcane storm going on.
      The bathroom/spa room upgrade has been removed from the player's room (if you had already purchased this upgrade, there will be 300,000 flames in your room's inventory as a refund). (The spa room upgrade will be added fully into the next version.)
  • Balance:
    • Increased base damage of 'Fireball', 'Ice Shard', DoT of 'Poison Vapours', 'Slam', and DoT of 'Telekinetic Shower'.
      'Flash', 'Witch's Seal', and the upgraded effect of 'Ice Shard' no longer stun a target, but instead apply effects which reduce the target's action points.
      Reduced mana cost of flash (with upgrade) from 75 (40) to 50 (25).
      Adjusted value calculations for clothing and weapons. Enchantments now have a bigger effect on increasing the value of the item, while special item colourings (platinum, gold, rose gold, silver) have less of an impact on price.
      The 'shattered enchantments' status effect now additionally sets all shielding attributes to 0.
  • Sex:
    • Added ongoing suckle/breastfeed actions for crotch-boobs.
      Added 'all fours' slot to 'stocks' and 'milking stall' sex positions.
      When using the 'Quick sex' action, if you are a dom and are engaged in a significant penetrative action, then that action is now counted as your preferred sex type during the quick sex generation. (e.g. If you start vaginally riding your partner's cock and then use 'Quick sex', a 'pussy-cock' event will now always be generated.)
      Kissing (mouth-to-mouth) is no longer counted as triggering the oral fetishes. (So NPCs who dislike/hate the oral fetishes will no longer lose a huge amount of lust when being kissed.)
      Switching positions during sex no longer stops ongoing actions which are occurring between participants whose position did not change.
  • Items:
    • Added: 'Riding crop' (1-handed melee weapon, sold by Finch).
      You can now recolour the rainbow gloves and stockings.
      The three lollipops in the game now apply a 'sucking lollipop' status effect when used.
      The arming sword, zweihander, demon's dagger, katana, and wakazashi now have more colouring options. (You may need to dye your katana and wakazashi, as their file changes will most likely have resulted in colours which you don't want.)
      The lightning globe now has a chance to apply AoE damage to two additional targets.
      Added 'iron' as a metallic colour.
  • Other:
    • Improved weapon, clothing, and item Encyclopedia pages.
      Updated the spell management screen to allow you to cast spells out of combat. (Only elemental summoning spells and 'Soothing Waters' can be cast out of combat at the moment.)
      Added a couple more penetration girth values, so there are 7 to choose from instead of 5.
      Reduced length of buttplugs from 15m to 10cm.
      Characters can now be set as having a single udder, and cow-morphs now spawn with a single udder + 4 nipples by default.
      Added dates to yearly event descriptions on your room's calendar.
      Separated self-transformation menu's 'head' category into 'eyes', 'hair', and 'head'. Added throat wetness to self-transformation options.
      Added separate colour for slime tongues, allowing it to be set to a colour other than that of the rest of their body.
      Body transformation enchantments are now free to remove from clothing/tattoos.
      After giving Scarlett a vagina during Helena's quest, she now only has a 20% chance of being creampied by a random harpy every night, instead of the previous 100% chance. (She still has a 0% chance to be creampied if she likes the player.)
      Prostitutes now apply heavy lipstick.
      Horse-morphs now have a 75% chance to spawn with dark genitals/anus. If this chance is encountered, there is a further 33% chance for horse-morph penises to be mottled in colour.
      Brax now has one of his wolf-girl transformative potions in his inventory (so you can obtain it after purchasing Brax as a slave).
      Randomly-generated NPCs will now only spawn wearing chastity cages if they have the self-denial fetish (or if a 5% chance is rolled for randomly-spawned harpies).
      Added indication of a race's base litter size in the phone's racial Encyclopedia entries.
      You now unlock weapon, clothing, and item encyclopedia entries just by clicking on them in an inventory screen, instead of having to equip/use them.
      Demons and half-demons are now affected by leg configuration changes from potions, although the type of leg which they end up with is converted to 'demonic horse' for demons.
      Centaurs (and other taur subspecies) now have a default furry preference of 'minimum'.
      When characters lose their horns, wings, tail, penis, or vagina, they now permanently lose any scars or tattoos in that slot. (Meaning that if they re-grow that part later on, they will no longer regain their old tattoo.)
      Exiting the inventory screen now correctly restores the tab index which you were on when you entered it. (Should be most noticeable when trading with Nyan, as you will now always correctly return to her trading options.)
      The item output tooltip in the enchantment screen now shows you the full details of the item which will be crafted. Clicking on the input/output icons no longer exits the enchantment screen/crafts the item.
      When dying a weapon, a preview of the equipped image is now shown beneath the unequipped one. (Only shown if the weapon has a different icon when equipped.)
      Saved characters which you can re-encounter in 'The Watering Hole' no longer have their affection reset to 5 if you've had sex with them before.
      Slightly improved transformations which your slave experiences when assigned to work as a 'test subject' with either or both of the TF permissions selected.
      Slaves working as prostitutes or in the public stocks now have a 50% chance of having sex every hour, instead of 5%. Similarly, slaves working as a 'test subject' now have a 50% chance to be transformed every hour, instead of 5%.
      Replaced instances of 'rangiferine' with 'reindeer'.
      Added slight variations of Amber's foot-related scenes for if you're got foot content disabled in your content options.
      Money on the floor in tiles now shows up at the top of the 'Items Present' list on the right-hand side of the screen.
  • Bugs:
    • Parsing and typo fixes.
      'Blonde' and 'bleach blonde' no longer share the same colour.
      Fixed bug where race resets in debug menu would not give the correct configuration of crotch-boobs.
      Fixed bug where entering the tattoo enchantment screen would sometimes incorrectly display you as interacting with the last NPC you encountered.
      When starting a new game, you now correctly start with basic combat moves already equipped.
      NPCs should no longer take their own virginities during sex.
      Fixed bug where offspring in an apartment on the tile which becomes 'The Golden Feather' would no longer be able to be interacted with.
      The effects of Takahashi's fox-transformative potion is now correctly based on your 'Forced TF Racial Limits' setting.
      Fixed bug where half-demons of any subspecies could spawn in the harpy nests, instead of just furies (half-demon harpies).
      Fixed issue with harpy subspecies being far more commonly-encountered than intended.
      Fixed another issue with ages not being displayed correctly, including a reversion of the player's birth year change caused by v0.3.7.5.
      All companions, including elementals, now correctly get the imp slayer perk for defeating all the imp waves in Submission's Imp Citadel.
      Fixed bug where the 'International date' setting was reversed (displaying shortened date formats as 'international' when disabled instead of when enabled).
      Fixed bug in the Watering Hole where submissive clubbers were incorrectly being treated as though they were dominant in some scenes.
      Fixed issue where modded icons would sometimes render in-game as being far too big.
      The 'Strike' combat move description in combat now correctly uses your equipped weapon's attack descriptor.
      Fixed bug where cargo trousers weren't able to be dyed with a pattern.
      Fixed minor UI bug where the dialogue's title wouldn't be displayed immediately after loading a saved game.
      Fixed parsing bug where if a capital 'I' (which was not part of an 'IF') immediately followed an 'ELSE' conditional, it would not parse correctly.
      Fixed bug where you couldn't finalise the order of a custom slave in Helena's Boutique (after completing her romance quest).
      The makeup kit can no longer be used on characters who are unable to apply makeup (due to having a slime body).
      Cumming into a character's hair now correctly describes their horns getting too (if they have any).
      The 'Bath time' action now correctly cleans all clothes in your inventory as its tooltip says it will.
      Removing or pulling up the 'tube top' is now correctly blocked by clothing being worn over the top of it.
      Fixed bug where importing characters would not load their body correctly.
      Fixed bug in combat, where attacking with lust damage would sometimes incorrectly describe you as having dealt health/mana damage. (Occurred when your target was not at maximum lust when your attack hit, but your attack caused them to reach max lust.)
      Fixed bug where equipped dildos wouldn't be described by their correct colour.
      Vicky no longer fucks your ass if you have anal content disabled.

    Progress News

    Hello again!

    I just wanted to make this small post to let you know that progress towards v0.3.8 is going well, and that it should (hopefully) be ready for Wednesday, 13th. If it's looking like I might need an extra couple of days to get everything finished off, I'll let you know on Tuesday.

    As for what's going to be in this public release, I should have Natalya's content finished (with a slight change to the forced-TF part of her content based on your feedback), as well as some of Axel's quest placeholders filled in. I'm also hoping to have some generic Enforcer encounter content added, but I'll probably be left with some of that needing to be finished off in v0.3.9. I'll also have more bugs fixed and other minor things added into the game.

    Thank you once again for all of your support, bug reports, and feedback!

    Update:

    I'll need the extra couple of days to get v0.3.8 finished off, so expect it on the night of Friday, 15th. There definitely will be no further delay to v0.3.8 after this, as I expect to have most things ready by either tomorrow or Thursday, and just need the extra day or two to do some bug fixing (so that I don't put out the release in a rushed state).

    Second Update:

    There is another delay... I'll get v0.3.8 out as soon as it's ready...

    Version 0.3.7.5 Progress Update

    Hello again,

    Since the last update, I've got some bugs and other minor things sorted out, as well as getting the framework for Natalya's content added. I ended up once again adding more than I planned for this character, so all of the dialogue for her mini quest is very rough placeholders at the moment (and there might be some bugs). With this in mind, if you decide to build this version from github, then I advise only playing the Natalya content if you want to see the sort of things it involves, and waiting to do a proper play-through of it until the next release, when all of the dialogue will be filled in.

    I expect the next update to be the full release of v0.3.8, which should be out around Wednesday, 13th May (unless there are some major problems which require a hotfix). I had originally planned for it to be out on Friday, but I really need some extra days in which to get things finished off.

    I'll make another post on Friday let you know how things are progressing.
    Update: I'll make the post on Saturday evening instead!



    I package and release these in-between preview builds for backers over on my SubscribeStar, but anyone can play them at any time by building them directly from the public github (which is always kept up to date with the very latest version):
    https://github.com/Innoxia/liliths-throne-public/tree/dev
    (There's a build tutorial here.)

    IMPORTANT: If you're building through github, you'll now need to place the 'liliths-throne-public/res' folder in the same directory as the exported .jar!

    ALSO IMPORTANT: Make sure you build from 'dev' branch.


    v0.3.7.5 Patch Notes


  • Contributors:
    • Refactored and cleaned up code handling forced transformations. This fixed a few issues with forced transformations, such as your leg configuration never being transformed into that of a centaur. (PR#1255 by Stadler76)
      Fixed bug where the phone menu wouldn't work in the SHopping Arcade. (PR#1328 by zR1OQicz)
  • Engine:
    • Moved all eye clothing and final hard-coded weapons into external res folders.
      Outfit files no longer require clothing conditionals to be numbered, and can be called anything, so long as they start with 'clothingConditional' or 'cond'. (e.g. 'clothingConditionalMelee' or 'condDress' are now both valid conditional tags.)
      You can now define multiple weapon types to be drawn from at random in one weapon element in outfit files (see mugger files for examples).
  • Gameplay:
    • Added framework of Natalya's content. It's all still placeholder dialogue at the moment, so only play through if you want to see the sort of content it has. The dialogue will be completely filled in for v0.3.8.
      Random storm attackers will no longer force transformation potions on you if you lose to them. (As they are non-persistent, it didn't make much sense to have them apply partial transformations to you when they'd never get the chance to complete them.)
      You can no longer pay off demon attackers in dark alleyway tiles (as they are only interested in sex, not money).
      Characters can now have a 'heavy layer' of lipstick applied, which causes lipstick marks to be left on kissed body parts during sex. There is a content option to disable this feature in the 'sex' category.
  • Balance:
    • Dominion alleyway muggers will now only spawn with physical damage weapons, and will no longer spawn with pistol crossbows.
      Submission tunnel attackers can now spawn with kerambits, opaque demonstones, and rough arcane feathers.
      All imps in Submission now wear rags and carry weapons, not just the ones in the imp fortress tunnels.
      Dominion dark alleyway demons now have their own outfit files and spawn with weapons.
      Increased natural physical shielding of all non-Enforcer clothing items.
      Buffed damage of most weapons (swords in particular have had their damage increased a lot). Increased value of most weapons.
      Submission enemies now demand 500 flames instead of 250.
      The +15 physical damage on the 'Daisho' set bonus has been replaced by +15 melee weapon damage.
  • Items:
    • Added clothing: 'Filly choker' (neck slot, feminine). Can only be obtained during Natalya's content (or spawned from the debug menu).
      Added item: 'Arcane makeup set'. Can be bought from Ralph or Kate, and when used, opens the makeup application screen.
      Renamed old Enforcer's shirt, shorts, and skirt to 'fancy-dress' items, to make it clearer that they aren't official Enforcer uniform items.
      Added a sheathed icon for the Zweihander.
      Added recolouring options for the shortbow.
      'Amber's bitch collar' now spawns with the servitude enchantment (so you can't self-transform or unjinx it while worn).
  • Other:
    • Reduced reindeer and rabbit tail lengths from 15% and 10% of body height, respectively, to 5% and 7.5%.
      Added an option under the 'Bodies' tab in the content settings to set how much smaller (or bigger) trap penises should be than normal.
      The debug menu now enables you to change the number of your tails if you are a youko (which is also only possible via the debug menu at the moment).
      Improved clothing/weapon/item tooltips in debug menu's item view screens.
      Offspring encountered will now spawn with correct clothing for their background/race/location.
      Increased number of essences NPCs will spawn with when they spawn with a weapon which requires essences to fire.
      Added a 'Wiki' button to the main menu, which, like the github and blog buttons, opens a page in your default web-browser to display the game's wiki.
      Spell efficiency is now listed under combat stats instead of miscellaneous stats in the phone's stats menu.
      Improved demon alleyway encounter dialogue.
      Added 'penile deflowerments' as a tattoo counter.
      Added crit requirements to spell tooltips in the phone menu.
      Characters who have their cum or girlcum milked in a milking room are now considered to have orgasmed, and so have their 'Frustrated' or 'Pent-up' status effects removed.
      Half-demons with no human body parts are now counted as having a race-stage of 'greater' instead of 'lesser'.
      Made some very minor improvements and fixes to Helena's date content.
      Added generic 'leathery' wings as a counterpart to generic 'feathered' wings.
      Demons now have a 20% chance to spawn with 4 testicles instead of 2, instead of 100%.
      Slightly adjusted clothing slot positions in the UI (by swapping mouth-neck slots and moving wrists-hands-stomach slots around).
      Increased Ralph's penis size from 20cm to 30cm.
      Added 'makeup' screen to the debug menu's self-transformation menu.
      The primary colour requirement for being classed as a Dobermann-morph is now either 'black' or 'pitch black', instead of just 'black'.
  • Bugs:
    • Parsing and typo fixes.
      Fixed some incorrect paragraph formatting in some transformation descriptions.
      Fixed bug where imps and demons would sometimes say they were trying to forcibly transform you into a demon, even though that's not possible.
      Fixed bug where imp gangs in Submission would try to force-feed you transformation potions even if all the effects did nothing.
      Fixed bug where masturbate action would always be greyed-out.
      Fixed bug where a saved game would fail to load if it was saved in a state where an item of clean, sealed clothing was about to be dirtied on the next turn. (This was most apparent in the autosave immediately after losing to any of the imp fortress bosses.)
      NPCs will no longer refer to fetish endowment potions by whatever name you've given it (as they logically wouldn't know what you've called the potion).
      Fixed missing descriptions in quick sex for fingering someone's ass.
      Fixed bug where 'Orgasmic Level Drain' was not working for the player character.
      Fixed issue where NPCs would sometimes reset their combat moves to the basic starter moves without being told to do so.
      Fixed bug in slave management where navigating from any of a slave's management screens to a sex scene would cause a background error to be thrown.
      Fixed bug where slaves created using Helena's custom slave designer would not be able to have their age changed.
      Fixed bug where NPC birthdays would end up being incorrect after saving/loading a few times. As part of fixing this bug, all NPC birthdays have been reset to what should be accurate values.
      Fixed bug where newly-spawned NPCs would be a lot older than they should have been.
      Fixed bug where setting forced transformations to 0% would still result in being forcibly transformed if you had forced fetishes turned on as well.
      Fixed bug where if you tried to send a companion home while you had an elemental summoned you'd get stuck in the phone menu.
      Fixed tails being treated as plural in parsing, even if the character with the tail only had one.
      Fixed bug where if you failed to be chosen by Scarlett after acting as her servant (in Helena's nest after completing Helena's romance quest), you were placed in Scarlett's room and got stuck in Helena's apartment.
      Fixed missing descriptions for receiving a blowjob from Helena in her store's back room.
      Fixed rare bug during Lyssieth's demon transformation sex scene where the game could freeze when she orgasms. (Was being triggered by having her orgasm while fucking her and giving her a handjob at the same time.)
      Characters no longer lose their penile virginity if they penetrate someone using a dildo in quick sex.
      Being transformed into a demon now sets your horn length to 10cm, instead of leaving it as 0cm.
      Fixed bug where actions outside of sex which had perk, fetish, race, or femininity requirements would not be available to choose if you had the 'Sex action bypass' content option disabled.
      Fixed bug where speech would not parse correctly in tooltip descriptions.
      Fixed bug where outfits files marked as being 'feminine' would sometimes be applied to masculine characters.
      Fixed bug where randomly-generated NPCs would sometimes have a date of conception many years before their birthday.
      Fixed issue where NPC forced-TF potion generation would be based on a slightly different body preference each time you met them.
      Choosing 'Unequip all' during character creation now correctly puts the clothing into storage, not your inventory.
      Fixed bug where you could clone earrings and other piercing clothing during character creation.
      Fixed bug where horn type wasn't being factored in when calculating a character's race (so characters with just a unicorn horn, for example were not being identified as being a unicorn).
      Fixed bug where if non-con content was turned off, you couldn't manually milk your slaves who were being milked in a milking room.
      Taking a shower in Helena's room after sex will no longer clean all clothes in your inventory.
      Kate now correctly sells items marked as being 'SOLD_BY_KATE'.

    Small delay...

    Hello again,

    While I've got quite a few bugs fixed and other small things added over this past week, I haven't quite managed to get Natalya's content finished. As such, I'm going to delay the github/SubscribeStar preview by just a couple of days so that I can avoid releasing it with placeholders still being present.

    I should be able to get Natalya's content finished by this time on Sunday, so expect another post then. Sorry about leaving news of this delay until the last minute; I kept on thinking that I'd be able to get it into a state ready for release, but it's clear now that I didn't have enough time...

    This shouldn't affect the release date of the full version of v0.3.8 by too much, so that should still be out next Friday or Saturday. Thank you all for your patience!

    Update: I need an extra couple of days, so the preview should now be out on the night of Tuesday, 5th. Sorry about the delay...

    Version 0.3.7.3 Release

    Hello again,

    For this version, I've got the last remaining section of Scarlett's content added (her scenes in Helena's nest for after you've completed Helena's romance quest), as well as getting a few bugs fixed. I've still got Natalya's content left to add, but as I'm planning on keeping that quite linear and limited in scope, I should be able to fit it in as part of v0.3.8.

    Speaking of the next version, I'm planning on getting PRs merged, more bugs fixed, and some generic Enforcer content added for v0.3.8 (as well as Natalya's content and filling in more of Axel's quest placeholders). After that, I'll focus on polishing everything up as much as possible for v0.3.9, which should be a very small and rapidly-released version, before finally moving on to the Fields content in v0.4.

    The next release will be a preview one (v0.3.7.5), which I plan to have out around this same time next week. The full, public release of v0.3.8 should follow on a week after that.

    Thank you all for your patience and feedback during this somewhat lengthy Helena update!

    P.S. If there are any major game-breaking bugs in this version, I'll get a hotfix out by Monday evening.


    As always, you can also build these releases yourself from the public github's dev branch (which is always kept up to date with the very latest version):
    https://github.com/Innoxia/liliths-throne-public/tree/dev
    (There's a build tutorial here.)

    IMPORTANT: If you're building through github, you'll now need to place the 'liliths-throne-public/res' folder in the same directory as the exported .jar!

    v0.3.7.3 Patch Notes

  • Engine:
    • Converted WorldType enum to classes.
      Moved all Harpy Nests dialogue out into external .txt file.
      Naming artwork files with 'penis' or 'vagina' in them will now remove those images from in-game display if that character does have a penis or vagina, respectively. (e.g. An artwork image named 'npc_penis' would only be displayed in-game if the character has a penis.)
  • Gameplay:
    • Added the variation to Scarlett's content in Helena's nest for after you've completed Helena's romance quest.
      Filled in Scarlett's missing sex dialogue for if you were fucked by her vaginally or orally up in Helena's nest (prior to completing Helena's romance quest).
      You can no longer encounter NPCs in alleyways/canals/harpy nests during an arcane storm, as they all go into hiding until it's passed.
      You can now find items, clothing, and weapons in random encounters on Dominion canal tiles just like you can in alleyway tiles.
      Exploring tiles (alleyways, canals, Submission tunnels, Harpy Nest walkways, etc.) now takes 30 minutes instead of 0 minutes.
  • Other:
    • Characters now use simpler descriptions of orifice capacities when talking. (e.g. Instead of saying 'somewhat tight, wet pussy', an NPC will now say 'tight, wet pussy'.)
      NPCs are now only added to your contacts list once you discover their name (so entering Slaver Alley no longer adds 'Enforcer' to your contacts list until you talk to him and discover his name).
      Reduced chance of random characters being virgins from 10% to 5%.
      Maximum 'resting lust' is now capped at 80, so highly corrupt NPCs will no longer get stuck at 100 lust during an arcane storm, which was allowing you to instantly beat them over and over again.
      Fast-travel via flying is now restricted in most indoor areas.
      NPCs present in canal tiles now have the same 'Character lurking in this area' overview text as alleyway tiles.
      Made some slight improvements to dialogue in Harpy Nests.
      Added reference to horse and centaur-pulled carts to Dominion's boulevard descriptions.
      Scarlett's naked in-game images drawn by Jam will now correctly display the penis/vagina variations based on whether Scarlett has a penis or vagina.
      Added action in debug menu (in 'stats' tab) to give your companions 500xp.
      If Scarlett likes you, she will no longer allow random harpies to impregnate her (when she has sex with other harpies after gaining a vagina).
  • Bugs:
    • Typo, parsing, and grammatical fixes.
      Fixed parsing bug in imp tunnels.
      Fixed some parsing bugs in Helena's new content.
      Reset Loppy's age to 22, as it was accidentally set to a far higher value in a previous version.
      Fixed issue with NPCs' birth dates not matching up with the lore of all characters aging by 18 years after birth.
      Fixed issue where obedience description could reveal the gender of concealed characters.
      Fixed bug where knowing what an NPCs' ass looks like would also reveal their anus to you, even if it was still concealed by clothing.
      Fixed incorrect naming of the elixirs which spawn in imps' inventories in Submission's tunnels.
      The 'too feminine'/'too masculine' clothing status effects now display correct tooltip descriptions when applied to NPCs.
      Fixed bug where the status effect 'Broken Virgin' (lost virginity, no hymen) would be active at the same time as the 'Pure 'Virgin' (lost virginity, regrown hymen) status effect.
      The 'Sex action bypass' content setting should now work correctly. (i.e. When this setting is turned off, sex actions which would result in your character gaining corruption are disabled.)
      The 'Calming suggestion' and 'Lustful suggestion' sex actions are now correctly greyed-out when not available.
      Fixed bug where Helena would be described as not being in her nest even if she was actually there.
      Fixed throat plasticity self-transformation buttons not working.
      Fixed bug where the 'safe alleyways' description was being shown for all alleyway tiles, not just the one to the direct north of Slaver Alley.
      Fixed bug where prostitutes were 4 times more likely than other characters to spawn with the 'pure virgin' fetish, instead of the other way around.
      Fixed issue where clicking on a slav's name/race icon to view them while in their slave management screen would cause a background error to be thrown when exiting the character view screen. This was resulting in game-freezes or displaying previous encounter dialogue.
      Fixed some incorrect sex action availabilities in the face-to-wall position when there is a sze-difference between the two participants.
      Fixed bug where giving a gift to Helena would prevent you from being able to give her another gift the next time you took her out on a date.
      Fixed rare issue in Helena's 'romantic' sex scene where you'd be forced to repeat her oral scene after completing it once.
      Fixed tooltip description of your arcane attribute describing a new player's starting value of 20 as being weaker than it was when you first entered this world.
      Fixed bug where viewing an NPC's weapon would not work and throw a background error if your inventory was full.
      Fixed bug where NPCs who failed to get pregnant would have their name stuck in the pregnancy stats screen as being 'Ready for birthing'.
      Fixed bug where imp offspring could spawn in Dominion's alleyway tiles.
      Fixed issue where dirty talk during nipple kissing would make reference to the character's nipples being penetrated, even if they weren't fuckable.
      Fixed some issues with the flow and restoration of dialogue in Nyan's and Helena's gift-giving scenes.
      The TF potion which you can get Scarlett to drink on her lunch break now increases her breast size by +1/+2 cup-size, instead of to C/D-cups (as she may have already had her cup size increase via pregnancy).
      Scarlett will no longer remove clothing or start other sex actions in her fingering/handjob scene in the cafe during her lunch break, or during her 'sleepover' sex scene near the end of Helena's romance quest (to stop her from performing unintended actions).
      Fixed issue with dialogue flow in Candi's post-sex scene.
      Fixed bug in Helena's romance quest where (if you'd previously set her free) Scarlett would stay in Helena's nest after you've told her that Helena wants her.
      Fixed Scarlett's perk map not being able to be reset while she was your slave.
      Fixed related issue where unique NPCs would always have their perk maps reset to their starting values upon every game load, even if they had been legitimately modified.
      Fixed bug where changing a character's image could cause you to get stuck in their character view screen.
      Fixed bug where characters could summon a fire elemental using health even if they didn't have that ability unlocked (by knowing at least 3 fire spells).
      Added error handling for an instance of incorrectly configured clothing mods causing background errors to be thrown.
