Version 0.4.9.8 "Hotfix" Release

While this version was supposed to be a hotfix focused on fixing bugs, I ended up getting distracted and adding some small new features and content. Although I have managed to get some bugs fixed, the issue where stored cum (in condoms, milking rooms, and in orifices) would update to take into account transformations in the owner's body took longer to fix than expected, so I didn't get nearly as many bugs fixed as I wanted to. There was (so far as I can see) only one major game-breaking bug in the last version, where the game would sometimes freeze and crash when an orgasm sex action caused body parts to get covered in cum. I've got that fixed, so hopefully there won't be any need for another hotfix...

The next update is almost certainly going to be a preview version on SubscribeStar. I'll release more details of what's going to be in it soon, but for now I'm planning on adding a chunk of new content and fixing more bugs. I'll also make the artwork preview posts for supporters on SubscribeStar within the next few days.

Thank you all once again so much for your support, and I'll see you again in the next post (which will be early next week)!


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!


v0.4.9.5 Download Links

This is still an alpha, and contains bugs and half-finished content!
Note: If you're on Windows, it's best to use the .exe version (only use the 32-bit exe if you're using 32-bit Windows). The .jar download is so that players on Linux or MacOS can get the game to run, in which case you'll need to make sure that you have java installed on your machine and that you have JavaFX installed too. You can ask in the #tech-support channel on the LT discord for help if it's not working.

v0.4.9.8 Patch Notes

Engine/Modding:

  • Minor improvements to Body.java class xml save formatting.
  • Added copy constructors to all body part classes.

Gameplay:

  • If the 'non-con' and 'rape-play allowed by default' content settings are enabled, then random NPCs with the unwilling fuck toy fetish will have 'rape-play' sex actions after defeating them in combat instead of the normal 'sex' ones.

Items:

  • You can now use the arcane makeup set in sex.
  • Added a new 'creampie retention' enchantment for clothing, which when used in combination with an orifice modifier, prevents creampies from being lost over time in the associated orifice.

Sex:

  • Mute NPCs will no longer act as though they're trying to talk when reacting to the possible loss of their orifices' virginity.
  • Orgasming characters will now only say the 'get pregnant' lines when giving their partner a creampie if their 'impregnation' fetish desire is positive, their partner is fertile, and the orgasming character is virile.
  • Re-added 'Finger insemination' action which was temporarily removed from Brax's old sex content some time in v0.2.x. The action is now split into 4, which take the form of: partner-start-fingering, partner-ongoing-fingering, self-start-fingering, and self-ongoing-fingering.
  • Added tracking of cum on body parts during sex, which can be seen in the inventory slot tooltips, and which is used to determine the availability and effects of the re-added 'Finger insemination' sex actions.

Combat:

  • 'Feral bite' now critically hits when the target has less than 25% health remaining.

Other:

  • Added a 'Lip lisps' content setting, allowing you to enable or disable the lisp effect gained from having huge lips. (Accessed via 'Content options' -> 'Bodies' -> 'Lip lisps', being enabled by default.)
  • Several very minor improvements to UI (transformation menu modifiers buttons, transparent covering icon, piercing inventory tooltips).
  • Renamed 'clear' body covering to 'transparent' to make it a little more obvious what the covering was meant to represent.
  • Dolls now correctly have doll-specific fluids (milk, cum, girlcum), which all start with 'slimy' and 'mineral oil' fluid modifiers. Doll fluids are worth 1/4 that of normal fluids.
  • When a creampie dirties clothing that's covering the creampied orifice, the game is no longer interrupted by a message telling you that that's just happened, and instead a 'Creampie' event is added to the event log (in the bottom-right of the UI).
  • Increased the true age of several unique demon characters (Amber, Kate, Natalya, Zaranix, and Lunexis), although their 'age appearance' remains unaffected.

Bugs:

  • Parsing fixes.
  • Fixed rare issue where the game would sometimes freeze and crash when an orgasm action caused body parts to get covered in cum.
  • Fixed bug where the covering of taurs' asses and hips was linked to their torso covering instead of their leg covering.
  • Fixed bug where unique NPCs who are your slaves (i.e. Scarlett and Brax) would never go to sleep.
  • The 'barren' and 'firing blanks' perks now correctly stop applying their anti-pregnancy/impregnation effects when removed from your active trait bar.
  • Additional speech patterns (such as those in bimbo speech) are no longer applied at the start of sentences. (So weird sentences such as 'Hello., um, I'm a bimbo!' will no longer appear.)
  • The gender of offspring is no longer determined solely by gender preferences, and instead now correctly takes into account the 'chanceForMaleOffspring' value from the mother's race.
  • Fixed bug where demonic offspring were unaffected by genetics.
  • Fixed bug with stored cum (in the milking room and in orifices), where if the cum provider was transformed, their transformation would be reflected in their stored cum. (i.e. A character's stored cum now correctly saves their genetics at the moment of storage.)
  • Fixed bug where if you attacked random characters who you've befriended in Elis's alleyways, you'd be presented with a scene which had no actions, preventing you from progressing.
  • Made some very minor dialogue improvements to random NPC post-combat dialogue and corrected some minor inconsistencies in some of the scenes.
  • Using the debug menu in sex will now correctly return you to the sex scene when exiting from it, instead of putting you inthe default dialogue and thereby breaking the game.

Hotfix Soon

This is just a small post to let you know that the hotfix will be released in a couple of days or so. I was originally hoping to have it released by now, but I got side-tracked while fixing the bug where demonic offspring weren't inheriting parental features and somehow ended up adding support to give used condoms more interactions. That, and related issues, took most of my time over the last couple of days, and so now I need a little more time to get the bugs fixed which I originally wanted to. So, I'll see you again soon with the hotfix!

Working on the Next Update

Since the release on Monday, I've been working on fixing bugs for the next update, which will most likely be numbered as v0.4.9.8 (or something close to that). I've only seen one game-breaking bug reported so far, which occurs when cumming on someone's body in sex. I've got that bug fixed, and I'll get it pushed out as part of a small bug fixing update within the next few days.

I'm going to continue fixing bugs until that release, after which I'll start writing content (and probably continue fixing even more bugs) for the next preview release for the supporters over on SubscribeStar. I also have some artwork to share with supporters, so I'll make a post about that soon as well over on my SubscribeStar page.

I'll see you again as soon as I've got the bug fixing update ready! Thank you all once again for your support and feedback, and for playing Lilith's Throne!

Version 0.4.9.5 Release

As mentioned in my previous post, this update mainly focuses on finishing off the doll race mechanics and adding support for 'sleep sex'. After adding sleep sex content to slaves, I managed to find time to add this content for Kate as well. That came at a cost of not being able to fix as many bugs as I wanted to, however, and as such I'm a little worried that this update might have a bad bug or two lurking somewhere. If that proves to be the case, I will get a hotfix released by the end of the week.

There really are so many things which I wanted to add for this update, but as I've only just got back into the swing of things I simply ran out of time in which to implement them. As mentioned before, the doll 'command' immobility mechanics in particular were quite time-consuming to implement, as I had to add support for a non-reactive character to all sex actions and quick sex descriptions. Now that that's complete, I can focus on bug fixes and content additions for the next couple of updates.

Finally, I know that this update is a little thin considering how much time has passed since the last release. Please consider this to be the start of a return to a more frequent update schedule, and I'll make sure to get a decent amount of content added within the next couple of updates.

Thank you all so much once again for your support, concern, and kind comments over the past few months. I'll make another post on Friday to let you know how things are going, so I'll see you again then!

v0.4.9.5 Patch Notes

Engine/Modding:

  • Added parser hooks for slave jobs and slave job settings, prefaced SLAVE_JOB_ and SLAVE_JOB_SETTING_.
  • Added an optional 'doesNotAge' value to subspecies files to set whether or not members of that subspecies have their age appearance increment as normal.

Gameplay:

  • Added more dialogue to Saellatrix (the succubus in the new sex toy shop).
  • Finished implementing doll race mechanics, more details below.
  • Added support for 'sleep sex', allowing you to engage in sleep sex with your sleeping slaves or friendly occupants. Your sleeping partner requires the new 'heavy sleeper' perk to be an active trait in order to have sex with them in their sleep.
  • Added 'heavy sleeper' perk, as mentioned above, which enables sleep sex and also applies a 10x health and aura regeneration rate. (This addition did not require perk trees to be reset, so all characters' perks are unaffected when loading into this version.)
  • Added sleep sex content for Kate (the succubus in 'Succubi's Secrets' in Dominion's shopping arcade).
  • If the player has the 'heavy sleeper' trait active, then slave sex when sleeping in your room will now take place as sleep sex instead of being woken for sex by horny slaves. (Slaves require the 'Use you' permission and to be assigned to your room in order to be involved in this scene.)

Dolls:

  • You can now purchase dolls from Saellatrix, with several options available to customise the doll when purchasing it.
  • Removed some references implying dolls could get pregnant/impregnate others.
  • Dolls will no longer spawn with special perks (such as 'dirty minded', 'health fanatic', etc.).
  • Dolls no longer suffer from chastity status effects.
  • You now correctly receive no essences post-sex from dolls' orgasms.
  • Dolls' perk trees are no longer described as being a work-in-progress.

Sex:

  • Added a new content option for setting how often you want to see full descriptions of revealed body parts during sex. (Accessed via 'Content options' -> 'Sex & Fetishes' -> 'Full exposure descriptions', with 'Always' as the default setting.)
  • Minor improvements to some sex action text.
  • Immobilised characters can no longer displace or remove clothing.

Other:

  • Added dalmatian subspecies for dog-morphs (to be a dalmatian, be a dog-morph with floppy ears and white fur with black spots).
  • Added 'femininity' and 'race' as sorting options for the slave management dialogue.
  • The shady dealer will no longer sell Biojuice canisters before you've completed the slime queen side quest (to avoid an issue where the quest would not be available if you were already a slime before encountering a slime in Submission for the first time).
  • The 'waiter/waitress' slave job now has a 0.5 hourly obedience increment (up from 0) to bring it in line with similar jobs.
  • Demons, slimes, youko, elementals, and dolls no longer have their age appearance increment with the passage of time.

Bugs:

  • Parsing and typo fixes.
  • Fixed game freeze error when using the 'Inspect' action under a slaves' 'Management' tab.
  • Fixed incorrect tooltip sizes & formatting for slave jobs.
  • Characters who are immobilised in sex scenes can no longer use the 'spread legs' or 'pull hair', 'grab horns', etc. actions.
  • Fixed incorrect quick sex description when fucking someone's armpits.
  • Minor fixes to dialogue flow in a few places (such as the response tab not resetting to the first one when exiting out of the slave management screen).
  • Freedom Certificates no longer disappear when examining them in your inventory.
  • Fixed bug where quick loading in the main menu was throwing a background error.
  • Fixed issue where some positioning actions were available when they shouldn't have been in 'chair sex' and 'toilet stall' sex positions.

Update on Monday

Over the past week I've been implementing and polishing the final mechanics for the doll race, which mainly consisted of tracking down all the loose ends related to the new 'command' immobilisation type. As every sex action in the game was written with both the performer and the target being able to act/react to it, I've had to go through a lot of the code to add support for the target not reacting at all (i.e. acting like an inanimate doll). I also had a few other issues come up, such as dolls needing to be immune to aging (which I also applied to some other races like demons), and quick sex descriptions needing new descriptions for inanimate characters. I've got all of the doll mechanics finished and tested now, and I'll do some further testing of it before the update.

After finishing the 'command' immobilisation mechanic, I realised that it was very similar to how I'd implement the mechanics for 'sleep sex'. As such, I'm just finishing the implementation of that tonight, which will allow you to have sex with sleeping slaves (so long as they have a new 'heavy sleeper' perk). I'll add more instances of sleep sex with other characters later on, but to start with it will only be available with slaves sleeping in the mansion.

I'll need to finish and test the implementation of the sleep sex mechanic tomorrow, after which I'm going to focus on fixing bugs for the rest of the weekend. I'll have the update in a state that's ready for release on Monday, and so I'll see you again in the release post then! Thank you once again for your support!

Friday 22 March 2024

Next Update Info.

So, as for what's going to be in this next update, the main addition is going to be the completion of the new doll race mechanics. You'll be able to buy dolls from Lovienne's Luxuries, house them in the mansion, and interact with them in a manner similar to slaves. I've also added a new 'command' immobilisation type for dolls, so that you can command them to remain completely immobile during sex.

I'll also have a lot of bugs fixed and some other minor things added (such as a Dalmatian subspecies). I will have this update released by the end of this month at the latest, and I'll make another post to let you know how things are going next Friday.

Thank you all so much for your patience over the past few months. I'll do my best over the next week to flesh out this update and try to get more content added before the release. See you again soon!

Update Soon

Once again I'm very sorry for failing to make a post or get an update released in so long. I've been in a very bad state of mind for the past few months, which has made it very difficult to work on Lilith's Throne. I really feel very angry with myself for not having made a post sooner to let you know that I'm still here and trying to get back on track with everything. Before making Lilith's Throne (and afterwards), I've been in the same position as you and wondered why a dev hasn't posted an update in months. I've been struggling to do much of anything since the start of December, but even with that being the case it is inexcusable for me to have not made at least a small 'I'm still here' post, and so all I can do is say that I am extremely sorry for leaving you in limbo for so long.

The reason for me making this post today is that I've recently resolved the main cause of the stress which has been crippling me for so long. As such, I'm getting back to work on Lilith's Throne, and I am very confident that I'll be able to (finally) get this next update released by the end of this month. I'll make another post on Friday to give you more details on what will be in this update.

Thank you so much for all of your kind and supportive comments, and for your support over on SubscribeStar. I'm sorry again for how poor my communication has been, and for the lack of updates. I will do my very best to not let this happen again.
