Version 0.1.66 release

Well, here's version 0.1.66! I know I say this for every release, but once again, a lot of time was spent on fixing problems in the engine. That being said, the major engine problems are close to being completely fixed now, so within the next few versions you should see a lot more content being added (as I start spending less time on engine stuff). I hope you enjoy this update, and I'm sorry that I haven't addressed some of the outstanding bugs and other problems in the game (such as the major lack of combat balance).

I might be releasing a mini-version before next Friday's update. I really wanted to re-write Brax's bad end (as discussed on the blog), so if I get that done over the weekend, I'll probably release it on Monday.


Here are the download links for version 0.1.66:

Pre-zipped easy download link (use this one!): Mega

(Removed Google Drive link due to lack of storage space. If you'd like a copy of this version, and the Mega link isn't working, please contact me! :3)

Lilith's Throne requires java to be installed on your computer.

Also, previous saved games are still not compatible with this version! I have the framework laid out for implementing this feature, so expect it in the next version!

Be aware: This version is still a very early release. There are game-breaking bugs, dead-end content, and it has not been fully tested as an executable jar. Please take that into consideration while playing!


Patch Notes:


  • Engine:
    • Changed 'properties.ltp' to 'properties.xml' to maintain keybinds between new versions (character saves will be done like this for the next version). I strongly discourage editing the new xml file directly.
      A lot of background stuff that you'll never notice... ;_;
  • Gameplay:
    • Added: 'Succubi's Secrets'; A beauty salon in the Shopping Promenade. (A lot of the text is still placeholder...)
      Added: Furry preference in the options screen. (Please note, I'm updating the sex scenes for the next version, so until that's done, you may still get some furry descriptions popping up...)
      Added: Promiscuity Pill. A preventative pill that massively decreases fertility for 24 hours.
      Added: Body piercing.
      Nyan now stocks enchanted clothing.
      Fixed appearances of all npcs. (Lilaya and others were being generated with wrong hair colours.)
      Altered penis size brackets to make them a bit more believable. Ralph having a 34 inch cock, while amusing, was straying quite far into the 'extreme proportion' content. Please note, this isn't a 'removal' of unrealistically-sized sexual parts, but encountering such sizes will be very unusual (this will be expanded upon later with 'extreme proportion' content).
      Did a lot of back-end changes to the way random npcs are handled. This means that they will now have random clothing and be at random stages of morph (partial, lesser or greater).
      Changed starting attribute values. You now start with 5 corruption (representing an average level of sexual deviancy), unless you take the 'innocent' background.
      Changed corruption values needed to unlock the next corruption level. (You can see them by hovering over the corruption bar in the attributes panel.)
  • Sex:
    • Added: Sex scene with Kate (you'll need a penis for this one).
      Added framework for getting NPCs pregnant, which will result in some new scenes in the next version!
      Fixed some sex scene descriptions referencing incorrect genitals.
      Fixed removed clothing being duplicated in inventory after finishing sex.
      Fixed creampie's effects from being permanent (the cause of permanent -2 intelligence and -5 willpower drains).
      Fixed bugs with detection of orifices that have been cummed in post-sex.
      Fixed bug with condoms not preventing creampies/pregnancies.
  • Inventory:
    • Completely re-wrote huge sections of the inventory code, which resulted in duplicate weapons, clothing and items all being stackable!
      Temporarily disabled 'remove jinx' option. This is going to be changed greatly when I re-do how clothing enchantments work.
  • Clothing:
    • Added: Basic earrings.
      Added: Nose ring.
      Added: Lip rings.
      Added: Tongue bar.
      Added: Nipple bars.
      Added: Navel gem barbell.
      Added: Ringed barbell.
      Added: Piercing ring.
      All new jewellery items can be bought from Kate. (I'll add more over the next few versions.)
  • UI:
    • A dialogue screen now pops up when important status effects apply their effect. (For example, when your creampied orifice dirties your clothing, or when your pregnancy stage advances.)
      Small updates to phone's menus. (Still a lot of improvements planned for this.)
      Slightly improved inventory's blocked slot visuals.
      Improved 'Characters present' screen.
      Moved spell and special attack icons out of the 'effects' section of the UI. They are now displayed instead in the combat effects section (so you only see them when in combat).
      Changed some places that said '[race]-morph' to '[stage] [race]-[gender]'. e.g. 'cat-morph' changed to 'lesser cat-girl'.
      Improved a lot of text and clothing colours. (To make the clothing a lot less garish.)
      Fixed bug where tooltips would stay stuck on the screen when quickly clicking through inventory.
      Added piercing and pregnancy descriptions to the character viewer.
  • Other:
    • Fixed bug where oral/intercourse options weren't working properly.
      Fixed layout bugs in level up screen.
      Fixed bug where if you spammed quickSave, you'd get healed.
      Fixed stats bugs in phone screen.
      Fixed display bugs with light theme (this still isn't finished... sorry it's taking so long...)
      Minor typo fixes.
      If your reported bug hasn't been fixed yet, then I'm really sorry, I'll prioritise fixing all outstanding bugs for the next release!

    Plan:

    Tomorrow I'm going to update the list of things I'm working on (yet again), so that you know what's coming next! I might also make a big post about my aims for the next few versions.

    1. This version sounds great on paper! Just downloaded and will be testing it out. No need to feel pressured or bad that you couldn't get to fix a certain bug. There are always things that would pop up. Take your time! Your work has great potential.

    3. I had the same bug again. But it was only one npc that had the bug. Female Wolf. I pressed sex and instead she went for a oral.

      1. All transformation mechanics are in a sort of temporary state at the moment. I have big plans for a complete re-vamp of how transformations work, but it might not be seen for a few more versions yet.

      2. cool thanks for the reply and really loving the game so far :D

    5. A list of bugs I found while running through this version:

      Sometimes, if you equip a stone or feather, the image in the "your equipped items" screen doesn't change until you exit and open the window again.

      Occasionally, the male genitalia of assailants will not match their type. I've run across this twice, both times a male horse had a barbed cat-dick.

      Attacking any assailant with a ranged attack will describe them as having a powerful arcane barrier around their pregnant stomachs. This happens even with male assailants.

      While playing as a male character, I found it impossible to have sex with any defeated encounter. Even if I press the "Sex" button, it goes to the oral scene.


      Anyway, keep up the great work. Your activity on the blog and frequent, consistent updates, combined with the thought and effort you put into the game itself convinced a habitual lurker like me break out and comment. I hope this game keeps getting better than it already is.

      (Also, pardon me for asking about future content, but what type of area will "The Endless Sea" even be? I'm trying to imagine a vague concept but all I can think of is rowing around a boat in the water.)

      1. Thanks for all the reports and the kind comment!

        The Endless Sea will (hopefully) be a bit more interesting than sailing around on a little boat, although that would be pretty funny...
        A lot of the design is still subject to change, but at the moment, it's planned to be half-land half-underwater content, with mermaids/men, octopus-morphs, eel-morphs, shark-morphs etc. You'll get some kind of arcane device that lets you breathe underwater, which will be the first half of the story there (taking place on the land part). The second half of the area's content will be underwater, and there's a specific reason for needing to go there, which will be revealed when I write that part of the story!

    6. I must say, your game is really great so far. It's innovative and fun to play.

      I have a suggestion. I like the idea of being able to choose level of furry level in the option though I pick Extra. However It would be great if we could have a similar option for multi-breasts. Something like [Multi-Breasts Off | Extra Breasts all flat | Multi-Breasts On].

      Keep up the great work this game is awesome!

      1. Well I am certain that he is working on many different things and a little more body control would be nice. Control over breast size of individual rows would be a good addition. Right now the sizes differ by 1 each row down.

        Delete
      2. I'm happy you're enjoying the game!

        Those multi-breast options sound like a good idea, and they shouldn't be too hard to implement. I'll add that to my todo list!

    7. Is it possible to add brax in the police station for more sex? after you defeat him ofcourse. Seems like a waste that you can't still use him.

      1. I'm re-writing Brax's bad end at the moment, and I was planning on writing in a way to visit him again, so you should see your suggestion being added in the next version!

    8. Hey, I've recently started playing this game and there's a few things I'm wondering about/have a problem with.

      First of, I can't save the game. Whenever I click save or load, nothing happens, no save or load screen pops up. No errors either, its like a button which does nothing other than tell me that it opens a save/load menu but it doesn't.

      The last thing I'm wondering is that one of the fetishes in this game is "Deflowering", now I love this fetish and there's something not right as if I get deflowered ingame, no one gives one. Like everyone I fight says they claimed me whether I'm a virgin or not it's the same.

      It only says that I've lost it following that it saves what character stole it. But there's no indebt erotic info. That's what I love about defloration, when it tells me about it, my characters reaction and the one doing it to me and how it affects my body. Hopefully you could help me/fix the first bug.

      1. Just checking, you do have the latest version of Java right? Also what are you running it on? Windows?

      2. Hi, thanks for the feedback!

        As Kazuto Kirigaya said, make sure you have the very latest version of Java on your computer. It would also be a great help for me to know what operating system you're running the game on. There have been other reports that the save/load windows aren't opening for some people, but I need to know if it's a problem on Windows, or if it's on another operating system (as I'm struggling to replicate the bug on my Windows system).

        As to the deflowering fetish, the system I have in place for handling sex scenes allows for very easy detection of when you lose your virginity. I just need to write the content for it, which will definitely be coming very soon! (First for random attackers & Brax's sex scenes, and then I'll catch up with all the others!)

      4. I just checked and found out that I didn't have the newest installment for java, and as so have installed it.

        A little bit curious why the game opens a save/Load folder and not a save/load screen instead.

        Atleast I got to know more info about the fetish from this.

        Delete
      5. Thank you for your system information, I was thinking that bug might have been related to non-windows operating systems, but I guess it's actually to do with having an older Java version. (It is working now that you've got the newest version of Java, right?)

        I used a save/load folder just as a temporary time-saving measure. I'm planning on adding a proper in-game save/load screen some time within the next few versions.
