Plan for October

Hello once again!

Sorry for the abrupt message in my previous post, and for keeping you all waiting for news of resumption of progress, but I'm (finally) back, and am working on 0.2.11 once more. I've done mostly bug fixing today, in order to get back into the swing of things, and after finishing off my 'urgent bugs' list tomorrow, I'll continue working on the content for 0.2.11.


Some Changes

I've decided to make a couple of changes from how I used to do things before this interruption, in order to address two problems with my release schedule: one, the over-promising of content, which kept on leading to disappointment when I didn't achieve all of my targets for each release; two, the delays, which ranged from a few hours to several days.

So, in order to address the issue of over-promising content, I'm going to stop setting precise targets altogether, and will simply say 'I'm mainly working on X area', or 'I'm focusing on improving Y feature', for each release. I'll still be working on numerous things for each version, but I'd rather under-promise and over-deliver, rather than the other way around, which has been the norm.

In order to address the issue of delays, I'm going to change the Wednesday release date to a more general '7-10 day release window'. This will allow for a little more flexibility and will enable me to get features and content properly finished between releases, instead of rushing to get them hastily implemented in time.


Release Information

So, with that being said, I'm going to continue working on Submission content for 0.2.11's public release, which will be out some time between 8th-10th October. After that, I will move on to 0.2.11.5, which will be a Patreon/github preview, and then finally the public version of 0.3. Those last two will be focused on main story content and the fields area, respectively.


Thank you all for your patience and understanding regarding last month's problems, and if you have any comments or questions that you'd really like me to respond to or read, then please PM me on discord.

No update

There will be no update this month. I've paused my Patreon page, and will have an update ready sometime at the start of October.

Everything just seems to be going wrong these past couple of weeks...

Feeling Better

Hi everyone!

Thank you all for your kind words, and I'm happy to let you know that I'm (finally) feeling a lot better today, and will have completely recovered by Monday.

This week, I'll get to work on finishing off as many of last version's targets as possible, which will mainly be the imp content and sex action improvements. I'll also try to fit in as many of the secondary goals as possible, but I don't want to promise too much, and will just concentrate on trying to get as much done as I possibly can. ^^

As it would be a bit of a stretch to get a meaningful release out this week, I'll keep the targeted release date for 0.2.11 (which will be a full public release again) at the 19th September. After that, I'll move on to v0.2.11.5 -> v0.3, which I hope to have ready either by the end of this month, or at the very start of the next.

Thank you all again for your supportive comments, and for being so understanding. I'll make a progress post this next week to let you all know how it's going. ^^

Version 0.2.10.8 Release

Hello again!

I'm sorry for how rough this version is, but for the first time since publicly announcing Lilith's Throne back in January 2017, I've got sick, which has greatly affected my ability to get work done. I thought it was just tiredness at first (which started back on the 25th), which is why I delayed this release instead of postponing it until I got better. As this last week came to an end, however, I've started feeling faint and physically sick throughout the day, and even after sleeping for 10-12 hours each of these past four or five days, I feel absolutely exhausted.

As a result, I've barely been able to get anything done, and around 80% of the work that was done for this release was completed on the Thursday and Friday (23rd and 24th) before I started feeling ill. I should have told you all that I was feeling ill earlier, and delayed the release until I was better, but I didn't want to disappoint you all, which has just ended up making everything worse.

I'm going to have to push the next release back until after I'm better, which I'll say for now will be out on the 19th, but it may (hopefully) be ready sooner than that. I'll make a post later this week detailing what will be added in it, but it's likely to just be finishing off v0.2.11, before then moving on to v0.3.

This version is likely to be buggier than usual, and the imp gang encounters in the tunnels in Submission are extremely rough. Sorry about all this.

    • You can now invite offspring home in the same way that you can with random NPCs. (They use the same dialogue for now, but that's just temporary.)

      Fixed tooltip for the bottom-left cell in Dominion incorrectly showing a list of names of people who weren't there.
      Fixed weapon mods not being able to have more than one spell.

    Version 0.2.11 Delay

    Sorry to have to give you some bad news, but I'm going to have to delay version 0.2.11 by a few days. Due to some issues that I've been having since last Wednesday's release, I haven't been able to get as much work done as I needed to, so this version isn't going to be ready for tomorrow.

    It's going to take me at least another 3 days to get the imp content & sex improvements finished, so, to account for anything that might go wrong, I'll say that the release will be out by the night of Monday, 3rd September.

    Until then, here's the preview version that was released last week. Sorry again that I've had to delay this version.

    Version 0.2.10.5 Progress Update

    Hello again!

    I've got most of version 0.2.11's coding work done for this update (fixing bugs and getting all minor things out of the way), so now I can move on to focusing on writing for the full release next week. I'll start by writing the Imp fortress & encounters, before moving on to focus on expanding the sex actions.

    I want to spend a good amount of time on improving the sex actions & positions, so I think I'll only have time for one of the planned quests. I'd like this quest to be Axel's, but if I'm running low on time, it will have to be one of the others (which are smaller in scope).

    The full release of 0.2.11 will be on the night of 29th-30th August.

    The artwork of Kelly/Katherine (they're identical twins) in this post was done by Jam. (There's a futa version coming soon!) :3
    You can find them over on their blog here (and their NSFW blog here).


    As always, I build these previews for backers on Patreon, but if you're not a patron, you can also build these previews yourself from the public github (which is always kept up to date with the very latest version):
    https://github.com/Innoxia/liliths-throne-public (There's a build tutorial here.)

    If you do build the game through github, please remember that these are preview releases, and there is a lot of half-finished content (and most likely bugs)!

    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!


    Version 0.2.10.5 patch notes:


  • Engine:
    • Added: weapon modding support. It works much the same way as clothing modding, and an example of how to make them can be found in the res/weapons/innoxia/dagger folder.
  • Gameplay:
    • Added: Ability to enchant weapons.
      Added: Demon's Dagger. Sold by Vicky.
      Added feathered demonic wings as a TF option.
      You now have access to the transformation menu in all post-combat scenes with demon or slime NPCs.
      Expanded the recently added 'moving in' actions to be available for demons in alleyways, harpies in the harpy nest, and submission attackers. (Still need to add it for bat caverns and offspring...)
      Slaves with 'Outside Freedom' and 'Use You' permissions enabled can now randomly ambush you in Dominion's streets.
      You can now choose which slot weapons are equipped into, allowing you to dual-wield weapons. Also, functionality for weapons to be classed as two-handed has been added (only affects the zweihander and musket so far).
  • Artwork:
    • Added Jam's artwork for Katherine & Kelly.
  • Other:
    • Went over all unique NPCs' creation methods and made sure that they had the correct starting values for all body parts. Some of these NPCs might have slightly different appearances when you load in.
      You now have management options available for friendly occupants who have moved out into an apartment.
      You can now ask friendly occupants to transform, under the 'Manage' tab (if they are a demon or slime). Also moved the transform option to the 'Manage' tab for slaves.
      Standardised all races' parts names, and removed Latin part names for all but canine, feline, equine, and bovine.
      Changed race discovery tracking to subspecies tracking.
      Debug mode now reveals all NPCs' concealed parts and clothing.
      Slightly refined Angel's, Bunny's, and Loppy's appearance, and changed Bunny and Loppy from being twin sisters to Loppy being slightly older.
      Horns are no longer counted towards calculating your race. (So, for example, you can now have a horned fox-morph that's still counted as 'greater'.)
      Fixed slime subspecies code, so all subspecies are now available for slime NPCs to spawn in as.
      Slightly improved random fetish desire generation, so NPCs with impregnation/pregnancy fetishes will no longer spawn in hating using/receiving cock.
      Added slave dialogue variations for if they like being inspected or spanked.
      Non-androphilic characters will no longer spawn disliking vagina or breasts, and non-gynephilic characters will no longer spawn disliking penises.
  • Bugs:
    • Typo and parsing fixes.
      Fixed storm attackers sometimes being able to be talked to after combat victory.
      Fixed phone's map having white borders on all impassable tiles.
      NPCs with a concealed race no longer have their race shown in the phone map's tooltips.
      Fixed all tattoos being called 'tribal'.
      Rose will now correctly prioritise penetrating your vagina or ass in her sex scene.
      Fixed NPCs commenting on strap-on reveals twice.
      Fixed UI issue in transformation dialogues where selecting buttons would change their size, sometimes making the buttons wrap around onto the next line.
      Fixed Imp Essences not being able to be used by demons.
      Fixed friendly occupants sometimes getting the job 'reindeer overseer'.
      Fixed anal not being available in missionary position.
      Dominant partners in the nightclub will no longer drink enough to pass out.
      Kalahari now correctly returns to the bar after sex, fixing the cause of some errors.
      Cultists and Kate will now correctly use your 'futa internal testicles' setting, instead of always spawning with internal testicles.
      Fixed 'Lick balls' action being able to be performed on characters with internal testicles.
      Fixed bug where sometimes the slave you were sending to Kate incorrectly ended up being the previous one you'd selected.
      Fixed bug where your offspring would be described as being born thousands of days before they were conceived. (Any offspring with birthdays prior to their conception date, or with conception dates over 300 days prior to their birthday, have had their birthdays adjusted to be within two months after conception.)
      Fixed not being able to feed an enslaved Scarlett any potions.
      Fixed issue where virginity loss messages would display incorrect messages.
      Fixed bug where trying to inspect an NPC (such as by clicking on their name) would throw a background error and not show their inspection screen.
      Elementals no longer have a random job's perk in their perk tree.
      Fixed dirty talk always returning the backup single-word lines, instead of penetration-specific ones.
      Fixed steal spell not working if the enemy did not have a weapon and you have only advanced the steal spell to 'Disarm'.
      You now actually escape when the game says 'All of your enemies are stunned, so you're easily able to escape!'.
      Fixed bug where you wouldn't be able to displace underwear through unzipped legwear.
      Alleyway attackers will no longer instantly disappear from canal crossing tiles.
      NPCs will now correctly displace your clothing to get access to your dildo, if they want to use it in sex.
      The 'Calm down' action's arousal loss should no longer be counteracted by your fetishes, which was causing this action to sometimes increase arousal instead of losing it.
      Fixed orgasm denial not working if your partner had the non-con sub fetish in a non-con scene.
      Fixed some issues with alleyway dialogue when you had a companion present.
      Cum and precum no longer lubricates contacting sex areas through condoms.
      Fixed stop kissing action returning incorrect pace-related descriptions.
      Fixed incorrect reactions being returned for genital/breast reveals during sex.
      Added descriptions for if you're wearing a condom in the 'Ass to mouth' orgasm action.
      Sucking Jules's cock to gain quick entry to the nightclub is now correctly counted as public sex.
      Fixed 'Resist kiss' action being duplicated and having incorrect tooltip text.
      Fixed incorrect bow & arrow firing description.
      Fixed Lilaya's first reaction to you being pregnant not being displayed.

    Version 0.2.11 Focus

    Hello again!

    With the non-slavery occupants and nightlife content added, I'm now very close to (finally) moving on to version 0.3, which will see the addition of the next stage of the main quest (involving Lyssieth), as well as that of a new map (the Foloi Fields). Before getting to that, however, I'd like to finish off the last few things that really need some work, so that I'm not leaving behind half-finished content when I move on to adding content for the new map.

    The major things that really need to be finished are the imp fortresses, imp gang attacks, and the Submission random attackers' dialogue. I also need to add in content for the slavery permissions (outside freedom and silence/crawling are the main ones), as well as improving the sex action descriptions to properly take into account body parts.

    I'd also like to get Alexa's, Axel's, and Claire's quests added, but I'm not going to push 0.3 any further back if I don't manage to get all these done in time. No matter what happens, the version after this one will be 0.3, and will include the new map/races/main story content.

    There's also a lot of bug fixing and other minor things to get done, but, once again, those will not delay 0.3 any further.


    Release dates:

    When I made the hotfix release post yesterday, I thought that I'd aim for slightly delayed release dates (of the 17th and 23rd) in order to get enough content out for this version. After thinking about it a little more today, however, I feel as though that's going to just end up with my Wednesday release schedule getting messed up again, while also not giving me quite enough time to get all of the content finished that I want. As a result, I'm going to do what I did for 0.2.10 again, and make the preview release the next Wednesday (22nd), with the full release coming out on the 29th.

    I know it must be a little frustrating for the release dates to be pushed back like this, but having spent too much time on the hotfix (again), I'm not left with much choice. It was either doing this, or breaking with my Wednesday release schedule and rushing to try and get content added (which would most likely have ended up with bugs and delays anyway).

    So, for that reason, the next update will be on the night of the 22nd-23rd August, and will be a Patreon/github progress update. The full release will then be out the following week, on the night of the 29th-30th.


    Focus for 0.2.11:

    Priority:

    Imp & Submission attacker content.
    - Adding Imp gang attacks and unique encounter descriptions.
    - Adding repeatable miniquests to clear Imp Fortresses.
    - Giving generic Submission attackers unique dialogue.

    Moving in content for all generic NPCs and offspring.
    - Need to add it for: Demons in alleyways, harpies in nests, Submission attackers, Bat Cavern attackers, and offspring.

    Improve sex action descriptions.
    - Comparing penis size/girth to orifice capacity, using horns as handles during sex, adding size difference content, etc.

    Slavery basics completed.
    - Add content for all slavery permissions and improve management.

    Mod support.
    - Add support for sex actions, items, and weapons.

    Extra:

    Alexa's quest.
    - Will involve a small quest to help get customers, then some romance options.

    Axel's quest.
    - Will have a new internal map for the Rat Warrens, as well as a new unique NPC.

    Claire's quest.
    - Will have a new internal map and items.

    Content poll winners.
    - Add a way to buy Brax from Candi.
    - Add Enforcer encounter in alleyways.


    P.S. If you have any questions that you'd really like me to answer, please join the LT Discord and @Innoxia me. ^^
