Version 0.1.67 release

Well, here's version 0.1.67! (Obligatory mention that a lot of time was spent on fixing problems in the engine...) This update adds fetish mechanics and contains the first stage of bringing all sex scenes up to the same sort of standard as Kate's. I consider this version to be a bit of a buggy release, but version 0.1.68 should be considerably more polished!

Please note: I only consider Kate's, Brax's submissive, and the random oral sex scenes to be anywhere near finished. All the others are either buggy or haven't had fetish mechanics properly applied yet! By the next release, they will all be finished!

Also, please remember that this is still a *very* early alpha! I know that some of these latest releases have seemed a bit low on content/bug fixes, but I'm still doing a lot of work on the back-end engine, so once that's finished (by version 0.1.7), a lot more content will be rolling out!


Here are the download links for version 0.1.67:

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 the latest version of Java to be installed on your computer.

Also, previous saved games are still not compatible with this version! The character exporter has, however, been added in this version, so any new characters should be able to be imported to future versions!

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:
    • Added: 'Character Export' to the options menu. Although it doesn't have any use for this version, it will enable you to import your 0.1.67 characters into future versions.
  • Gameplay:
    • Added: Fetish perks. There are now several fetish perks available to spend your perk points on! (The icons are placeholders for now...)
      Added: Enforcer's uniform drop on Brax defeat.
      Improved: Re-wrote Brax's scenes to remove the bad end (and added alternate ways to defeat him).
      Added indication for when you discover your natural skin/hair/eye colour for different races.
  • Sex:
    • Added: Fetish mechanics.
      Improved: Random attacker's oral scenes have been refined, expanded, and re-written to cut down on verbosity. (Full-intercourse scenes will be similarly improved for the next release!)
      Improved: Re-wrote and refined Brax's sex scenes. (This is about 80% done, and the rest will be finished for the next version!)
      Refined all corruption values needed to perform sex options.
      Completely removed 'Arcane drain'. (It was just annoying and wasn't adding anything to the game...)
      Added more randomisation to penis and vagina names during sex scenes.
  • UI:
    • Improved save game notification.
  • Other:
    • Added: Gender names & pronoun customisation in the options menu. (Will be split into player and NPC specific names for the next release.)
      Fixed bug related to infinite looping of status effect updates.
      Horse tail is now the same colour as your hair/mane.
      Fixed a bug with the maximum corruption perk affecting your orifices.
      Fixed pregnancy protection descriptions showing for all melee and ranged attacks in combat.
      Minor typo fixes.
      If your reported bug hasn't been fixed yet, then I'm really sorry, I'll try and get them fixed 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 still need to make that big post about my aims for the next few versions as well...

    1. Awesome release! Sure it may be short on actual content but a sound foundation will allow you to setup your game better in the future. BTW what is this Arcane Drain you mention?

      1. Thanks, and yeah, I'm focusing on getting all the core aspects of the engine finished before I start adding loads of content. ^^

        The arcane drain was the negative status effect you got from orgasming while in non-consensual submissive sex. It led to a permanent loss in attributes, which was just a holdover from an early concept of how the whole attribute system was going to work. I didn't think it really had any place in the game any more, so I decided to remove it.

    2. Okay so I know it's a bug but it's hilarious, whenever you get the bimbo trait everyone you meet starts to talk like a brain dead bimbo.... EVERYONE. :D

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Oh no! Well I guess at least the bimbo-conversion method is working (even if it's in a way that's not intended)...

        I'll add that bug to the top of the todo list!

        Delete
      2. You wanna know what's funny? The item "Used Condom" saying "Currently not implemented" and to wait till v0.1.66!

        Delete
      3. Reading Brax as a bimbo is priceless, he doesn't sound dominant at all and so unsure of himself. :D

        Delete
    3. A nice new release. Found 1 bug tho: NPCs don't seem to listen to your requests if they defeat you. They went for vaginal every time even if you requested anal.

      Aside from that, I didn't notice any significant bugs while playing through it.

      ReplyDelete

      1. Tested this particular bug a bit further, it seems that submissive anal with NPCs is outright impossible in this build. Even with a PC that didn't have a vagina they would refuse to penetrate.

        Delete
      2. The random attackers' intercourse sex scenes are pretty buggy at the moment, I'll get them fixed for the next release!

        Thanks for the feedback!

    4. Hmm tentacles are among the planned fetishes for this game right? Will it only be receiving or will there eventually be a means for the player to grow tentacles of their own that they can use in sex scenes? (I'd love to have set of 8 tentacles growing out of my character's back.)

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Tentacle monsters are planned, but probably won't be in the game for some time yet. (They'll be encountered in the jungle area when I add that.)

        I'd like every enemy in the game to have a related transformation available for the player, so you'll definitely be able to grow tentacles at some point!

    5. I noticed a bug appeared with items now. You can use them but when you drag the cursor over them it always states that you don't know what they do now. It used to tell you what the effects were when you used an item for the first time. It logs in the encyclopedia just fine though. It just doesn't update the info when you drag your cursor over the items any more. It just lists them as having unknown effects now. The other thing I noted was that I was getting an odd message part of the time where I it was saying my pussy was reshaping into a horse pussy every time I used a scarlet whisper. I tried spamming angel's tears afterwards and I will try spamming more of them to see if I get more messages while I'm definitely true human. I could have sworn I was true human when it was giving the messages though.

      1. I also discovered that the cock piercing doesn't seem to register so you can't equip the piercing to it after paying for the piercing.

        Delete
      2. Thanks for the bug reports again, I've added them to my bug-tracker!

        Delete
    6. It would be nice if we could unlock encyclopedia info about what an item does by using defeated enemies as guinea pigs.

      1. ROFL I second that! I am certain whenever item usage gets implemented in full we will be able to do that.

        Delete
      2. This will be added when I work on the item/transformation mechanics. ^^

        Delete
    7. There's a bug where resting until morning/evening doesn't update the text on the button when you first press it, but does on subsequent presses, which leads to it saying the opposite time of what you're actually resting to.

      1. Thanks for the report, I've added it to my bug tracker. (It should be fixed in the next version!)

    8. So, after losing your virginity are you supposed to be unable to request being fucked in the pussy while you have the virginity perk? It makes it impossible to do Ralph's big discount if so.

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. At least this is the case with trying to get a big discount/asking Brax to fuck you in the cunt, apparently I can ask rando NPC's to do so

        Delete
      2. That's an aspect of the Virginity fetish that I overlooked when implementing it. I'll change it so that once you lose your virginity (and get the 'broken virgin' status effect), you'll be able to request vaginal sex like anyone else.

        Delete
      3. Cool, keep up the awesome work, I'm loving this game. :D

        Delete
    9. I played the most recent version, and after seeing that I can give my character incest and impregnation fetishes, this has rocketed toward the top of my list of games to look forward to. I can't wait to see where it goes from here.

      Replies
      1. Pregnancy options will be added soon for Lilaya, and then later for the 'Son & Daughter' encounters. The latter aren't in the game just yet, but they should be added some time within the next few versions.

    10. Is there a way to gain corruption without drinking Lilith's Gift?

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. In this version I accidentally removed the corruption gains from being a submissive partner in non-consensual sex...

        In the next version, that will have been re-added. I'm also going to add corruption to the level-up screen in the same way strength, intelligence, and fitness are there.

        When I implement the TF/consumables crafting system (version 0.1.69), it will be a lot easier to influence whatever aspect of your character you want to change. (Including corruption!)

        Delete
      2. It would be a nice if there were dominant actions that could increase corruption too. I mean actively take taking the initiative to beat people up and take advantage of their lust addled state probably shouldn't be leaving you a vanilla person in you make a regular habit of it.

        Delete
      3. That's a cool idea. I was thinking of applying a "guilty conscience" status effect for actions like those, but after reading your comment, I think that it would be simpler to just apply a corruption increase. (And it would give players another way to earn corruption.)

        Thanks for the suggestion! ^^

        Delete
    11. Also when you hover over the perks towards the right, the description covers the perk button so you can't click it. (You can move the window away from the side of the screen so the description doesn't cover it, but I thought I should share in case you weren't aware.)

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Ah yes, I just tested that and I see what you mean. I've added it to my bug tracker, and I'll find a way to get it fixed as soon as possible!

        Thanks for the report.

        Delete
      2. Would it be possible to make the description appear on the left for the rightside perks? That should stop it from covering it

        Delete
    12. Is there any item that increases penis size? Also has the corruption mechanic been changed or is it a bug?.

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. "Throbbing Glow" and "Flaming Thunder" both increase penis size, with Throbbing Glow being the more powerful of the two for that TF.

        The corruption gain mechanic from submissive sex was accidentally removed, but it will be re-added in the next version!

    15. I feel like a retard, I've downloaded the latest Java and the latest version of this. When I open the file it's just full of folders a to z which are full of CLASS files. I have no idea how to start this game, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

      1. It sounds as though your system is opening the "LilithsThrone_0_1_67.jar" file with WinRAR or some other archive viewing program.

        If you're on Windows (not sure how it works on MacOS/Linux), try right-clicking the file, then "Open with -> Java(TM) Platform SE Binary".

        If you don't have any Java option on your list, select "Choose default program...", then click the "Browse" button at the bottom-right, and navigate to, then select, the file:

        "C:\Program Files\Java\jre8\bin\javaw.exe"

        Or wherever your "javaw.exe" is installed to.

        (This is assuming that you've installed Java on your system by running the downloaded java installer you got from oracle.com or java.com)

    16. Did you use swing for this? I tend to use Javafx...

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. I've used JavaFX to make the UI, although I really only use it as a way to hold WebViews.

        The tooltip is a JavaFX Tooltip element, but other than that, everything is just WebViews. The entire UI is pretty much just html/css. ^^

      2. Do you have a team to help you?

      4. Thank you very much for the offer (I really do appreciate it!), but I think that I'd struggle with project management at this stage of the game's development.

        I'm hoping to have got all the major engine work done by version 0.1.8, at which point I'm going to start moving towards putting the game's source code up on a public GitHub repository.

        I anticipate using the same sort of licensing that Fenoxo does for CoC and TiTs. That is, the game's source will be publicly viewable, and I'll happily accept contributions and mod requests, but I can't promise that it will be fully open source from day one.

        I'll make an in-depth post about it when the time comes. Thank you very much for your offer of help though!

    17. I've got a couple more questions, sorry.
      First, there are items that give defense/attack bonuses for pure, but is there currently anything that does pure damage?
      Second, is there supposed to be two different menus to dye your hair in Succubi's Secrets? One costs 30 unspecified currency and the other costs 200, is there a difference between the two other than price?

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Don't be sorry, I like answering questions! ^^

        There aren't any pure damage weapons at the moment. The 'Pure' damage/resist is in fact just a bonus to all damage types/resistances. I'm going to change how pure damage is handled when I do the combat balance, as it's not really working in the same way that it traditionally does in other games (and is therefore a bit confusing).

        The two costs at Succubi's Secrets is a bug (which I've fixed for the next release). They're exactly the same option, it's just that one costs more!

    18. How do you get the bimbo status effect? I remember seeing it once, but I don't know how I got it.

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. At the moment, you get it when you have 0 intelligence. I'm changing it to a fetish option for the next version though, as it seems a little unfair to force people to have 0 intelligence if they want to be recognised as a bimbo by the game.
