Version 0.3 Release

Hello!

Once again I'm sorry for the delay on this; there was a significant amount of lore that I had to go over and check before adding Lyssieth's content, which I hadn't properly looked at since around v0.1. That took quite a lot of time, as did actually writing the Lyssieth quest resolution dialogue (sorry that it's a big info dump - I already cut it back once, and struggled to edit it any smaller). I also had to make quite a few changes to the code in order to get the demon subspecies working, so, in all, there was far more work to do than I originally planned for.

While there is a world map in this (which you see after completing Lyssieth's section of the main quest), you can't travel to the fields just yet, as I simply ran out of time in which to add content for it. There are also some placeholders in Lyssieth's palace, and Lilaya's reactions to your demon transformation are missing. All of that will make it into v0.3.1, along with bug fixes, tidying up dialogue here and there, and other things.

I need to take a couple of days to be with family over Christmas, but I will be back and working on v0.3.1 as soon as I can! I hope you have a Merry Christmas, and a happy new year!

v0.3 patch notes


  • Gameplay:
    • Your character's demonic parts will be reset to human when you load into this version. Demonic transformations are now only attainable through lore-correct methods (i.e. being corrupted into a demon by a lilin).
      Removed item 'Innoxia's gift' and any crafted elixirs that were made using this item. (Again, to align demon transformations to the game's lore.)
      If a character is not a demon, then demonic transformations applied while being a slime are reset to human upon returning to flesh. Non-demonic transformations are reset to demonic ones in a similar fashion if the character is a demon.
      Demons and all subspecies are now correctly immune to all transformation potions.
      Tidied up, expanded, and fixed bugs in Elizabeth's dialogue.
      If you have completed the Siren's quest up to returning to Elizabeth in a previous version, your quest progress will be reverted one step (so you just need to return to her again), and you will be moved back out from the gates or the palace tile into one of the palace cavern tiles. (So that you can see the new handing-in quest dialogue, as well as to fix issues with being too far ahead.)
      Added Lyssieth as an in-game NPC, along with a map of her palace.
      Added final part of Dominion/Submission quest, where you meet Lyssieth.
      If you have the masochist fetish, you now gain 1 essence every time you are critically hit in combat. If you have the sadist fetish, you now gain 1 essence every time you critically hit an opponent.
      Changed the game's opening to explicitly state that the museum is in London.
      Added 'maps' menu to phone, so you can view every area you've been to at any time. (You will need to re-visit areas to unlock them if you're carrying on from a previous save.)
      Added a world map, which is unlocked after Lyssieth's content. Travel to other areas isn't in just yet, but it will be in the next version.
      Added lore-friendly demon TF for the player, via Lyssieth content. Lilaya & Meraxis reactions, along with more demon TF content, will come in the next version as well.
  • Contributors:
    • Fixed incorrect labelling and descriptions in the demon alleyway attacker quick transformation scene. (#985 by ChillaChris)
      Minor description fix. (#986 by ChillaChris)
      Fixed modding clothing's 'equipped' image variant not working. (#988 by CognitiveMist)
  • Clothing:
    • Added a 'drab green' colour for clothing.
      Added: 'plunge blouse' (Feminine, torso slot.)
      Added: 'asymmetrical skirt' (Feminine, leg slot.)
      Added: 'strappy stiletto sandals' (Feminine, foot slot.)
      Added: 'lacy thong' (Feminine, groin slot.)
      Added: 'feminine blazer' (Feminine, over-torso slot.)
      Added: 'half-rim glasses' (Androgynous, eye slot.)
      The butler outfit is now classed as being androgynous.
  • Other:
    • Expanded lore in the 'Lilith's Dynasty' and 'arcane arousal' books in the library, and organised library actions.
      Tidied up Rose's dialogue about the world.
      Updated demon lore in the encyclopedia, adn slightly expanded slime lore to make mention of their body's hydrophobic membrane.
      Submissive partners in sex can no longer remove sex toys from their partner. (Dildos, and anything that plugs or seals orifices are considered sex toys.)
      Added subspecies and proper detection for half-demons, lilin, and elder lilin.
      Slightly improved background code for offspring and litters - I did test this a lot, but if you run into any issues with pregnancies, please let me know!
      Changed Lilaya's post-sex dialogue to remove references to arcane-related lore that ended up not being used.
      Added foot structure options to demon/slime transform menu, along with numerous other minor changes and improvements.
      Added covering patterns 'marked', 'mottled', 'spotted', and 'striped' for penis.
      Changed transformation references of 'breasts' and 'ass' to 'nipples' and 'anus', as that's all the transformation is affecting. (Breast and ass coverings are based on your torso's covering.)
      Added some more descriptors for breasts and ass to draw from for when being described.
      Tidied up code in a lot of places.
      Changed the siren's name from Mhyralyss to Meraxis. (I was finding the spelling of 'Mhyralyss' to be a little too cumbersome.)
      Dark alleyway demons now obey the same rules as all other NPCs when it comes to using items on them.
      Subspecies lore books have had their icons changed.
      Added half-demon lore book to Lilaya's library.
      Lilaya now tells you to remember to pull out at the start of sex.
      Changed 'Obeys lilin' effect at maximum corruption to 'Demonic mindset'. (A requirement to be turned into a demon.)
  • Bugs:
    • Fixed potential issue with radial gradients in images not being coloured correctly.
      Fixed issue with null pointer exception being thrown in some sex scenes, which was causing sex to freeze.
      Fixed issue with not being able to progress past one action with dominant partners in the Watering Hole (everything should be working correctly in there again now).
      Fixed issue where equipping clothing during sex would sometimes result in an error being thrown when sex finished.
      Fixed some days and months being displayed in the language of your computer's default language instead of English.
      Fixed issue where all weapons would revert their primary colour to default when you enchanted them.
      Fixed pregnancy probability descriptions during sex always acting as though the potential mother already had a chance of being pregnant.
      Fixed incorrect name parsing during Siren's pre-fight scene.
      Fixed issue where Imps would be incorrectly shown as being present in the very bottom-left tunnel tile of Submission.
      Added error handling for some bugs in clothing management during sex.
      Fixed elementals not getting perk points as their summoner level up.
      Enchanting strength-related drinks will no longer duplicate physical damage & resistance as primary modifiers.
      Fixed error log spamming 'Failed to load character' messages.
      Fixed issue with NPCs in sex sometimes failing to remove clothing, which would throw an error and freeze the sex scene.
      Fixed some clothing (such as the clover clamps) not registering that they were blocking parts correctly, resulting in some parsing errors in some sex actions.
      Fixed some incorrect descriptions in sex scenes.
      Fixed imps in the tunnels being treated as though their generic names ('fearless imp', 'nervous imp', etc.) were their real names.
      Added error handling for when two pieces of clothing accidentally end up blocking one another.
      Fixed incorrect parsing in imp fortresses, where imps would be described instead of the demon boss.
      Fixed issue where a scene from Arthur's dialogue was missing (at the point where you agree to find Lyssieth).
      Fixed issue where covering colour options would not show up in transform or Kate's menus.
      Fixed siren's call being available as a spell book, and removed it from known spells, if you'd already learned it.
      Fixed bug where setting all age categories to disabled would sometimes throw an error and break the game in strange ways.
      Fixed Maximilian (the slime queen's royal guard) not being a demon slime.
      Fixed Wolfgang and Karl having empty descriptions, and fixed their post-sex 'offer body' scene acting as though you fought them.
      Performing a handjob climax on a slime no longer incorrectly describes cum shooting inside of them.
      Fixed issue where all characters would sometimes gain health and mana when you loaded a game.
      Fixed body covering colours not saving if set via the debug menu, causing them to be reset every time you loaded the game.
      Fixed some subspecies advanced lore entries being hidden, even if they shared the same unlocked lore entry as their race's core subspecies.
      You can no longer change surnames to be blank after character creation, as it was causing some bugs.
      Fixed incorrect grammatical parsing in some sex actions.
      Fixed issue where unique NPCs would accept fetish TF potions.
      Fixed characters who like the pregnancy or cum addict fetishes asking their partners to pull out.
      Fixed issue where when loading a game, all characters on your tile would have their concealed parts revealed.
      Some fixes to sex action grammar.
      Fixed the 'Foxy Fuck' potion (from the youko in the citadel) not transforming your ass into a fox's.

    Another delay

    I underestimated the amount of work that I had to do in order to finish this Lyssieth content, and as such, it still isn't ready. I will have to delay this release even further, and will simply release it "when it's done". I imagine that will take another couple of days, but as I am the worst person in the entire world at making release estimates, I won't give a fixed date.

    I'm sure many of you won't care for excuses, but for those of you who want to know why this is being delayed a lot, it is basically just because I did not account for all of the different aspects that needed to be covered as part of Lyssieth's content. For an example of what I mean, earlier today I realised that I'd missed out Lyssieth's 'elder lilin' subspecies, the possibility of her or the player getting pregnant, and the necessary expansion and refactor of lilin/demon/imp offspring mechanics that goes along with that. She also needed special orgasm actions, repeat visit scenes, and then pregnancy reaction variations for those scenes. The lore-friendly demon TF also needs to be integrated into her content, which requires the removal of old demon TF items, support for transformative potion blocking, the demon TF scene itself, support for Lilaya reactions, Lilaya & Mhyralyss content related to this, another sex scene, and special demon TF variations and detection for the player.

    I did not have enough time in which to get all this done, and I don't know how long it will take. I don't want to disappoint you all with yet more terribly-judged release dates, so I'll just say that there will be an update sometime soon.

    Slight delay...

    This upcoming release contains a major part of the main story, and, while I think I will probably be able to get it ready for a release tonight, I won't have any time left in which to properly proof-read or test it. I really want to make sure this release is smooth (unlike the last two, which were a little rushed and contained a significant amount of bugs), so I'm going to choose to delay it by one day to make sure that I have time to properly test and polish it.

    That means that v0.3 will be out tomorrow night (Thursday 13th), about 26-28 hours from the time of this post. Sorry about this delay, but I really don't want to end up releasing another extremely buggy version.

    Version 0.2.12.95 Hotfix

    0.2.12.96 Update .95 had a bug where NPCs were appearing on random tiles. I've updated the download links in this post with .96, which fixes this issue. Unless there's another major bug, any further fixes will be rolled into v0.3.


    Hello!

    I'm so sorry about those major bugs in v0.2.12.9! In my (somewhat limited) testing last night, I only went to Submission, Dominion, Lilaya's house, and the Siren's citadel, so the game-breaking bug that was occurring when entering some of the other areas eluded me... x_x

    Anyway, this hotfix should get it all working correctly again. Version 0.3 will still be out on Wednesday night! ^^

  • Bugs:
    • Fixed issue where random NPCs were appearing in tiles.
      Fixed your name being displayed as 'You' in your character panel on the left of the screen.

    v0.2.12.95 patch notes


  • Bugs:
    • Fixed major bug where entering a lot of areas would freeze the game.
      Exiting the citadel after beating the Siren now correctly displays the 'Enter' action.
      Beating the Siren now correctly removes Takahashi from the citadel. (Also retroactively removes her if you've already beaten the Siren.)
      Fixed desaturated youko tile icon still being coloured.
      Fixed (for real this time) the bug where asking Elizabeth about her uniform would lock you into that tile.
      The arcane revolver now correctly drains 1 essence when fired.
      Fixed issue where Fyrsia would appear in the other imp fortresses, sometimes in the place of the correct leader. (She will move back to her own keep once you leave/re-enter any fortress.)
      Fixed missing dialogue when entering Hyorlyss's pacified keep.
      Enemies no longer only use defensive spells in combat.
      Fixed numerous issues with clubbers in the Watering Hole - it should all work correctly again now.
      Fixed age preferences not being saved and restored between games.
      Fixed issue with changing Youko slaves' names.

    Version 0.2.12.9 Release

    Hello again!

    Just like the last public release (when I made v0.2.11.9), I find myself out of time, and still with content left to add. There were quite a few more bugs in v0.2.12.6 than I had expected, and so I had to spend a lot of time getting them all fixed. As a result of this, the Lyssieth & Fields content hasn't quite made it in just yet, but I will be releasing another public hotfix/mini-update in the middle of next week (most likely Wednesday night), which will have that content in it.

    As I really want v0.3 to signify that the new area has been added, I've decided to call this v0.2.12.9 (as you've no doubt seen from the title of this post). The hotfix update will be called v0.3, and, once again, will be out around the night of Wednesday, 12th. The updates after that will then be focused on filling in missing content in Dominion & Submission. ^^


    v0.2.12.9 Download Links

    Edit: Links have been removed, as this version was extremely buggy and broken. Please use version 0.2.12.95 (the post above this one)! ^^


    v0.2.12.9 patch notes


  • Gameplay:
    • Added NPC 'Elizabeth' - the guard at Lyssieth's palace. Also started to update her dialogue - this will be finished for an upcoming patch.
      If your save is from a version prior to 0.2.12.6, the imp fortresses will all reset, as several things changed from then to now, so it all needs to be reset in order to work. The imp citadel should also reset if you cleared it using the quick 'Clear' button in versions prior to 0.2.12.6.
  • Contributors:
    • Fixed classpath issue causing game to not compile correctly. (#981 by Alaco)
      Fixed Rental Mommy & Rental Daddy t-shirt errors, which was causing the rental mommy encounter to throw errors. (#984 by CognitiveMist)
  • Clothing:
    • Added colours 'midnight brown' and 'olive'.
      Added 'Lyssieth's Guard' set, which contains:
      Service dress tunic: Over-torso slot, feminine.
      Service dress hat: Head slot, feminine.
      Service dress skirt: Leg slot, feminine.
      Service dress shoes: Foot slot, feminine.
      Arcane revolver: Ranged, on-handed.
  • Other:
    • Humans, demons, cat, dog, wolf, horse, and cow-morphs now have a 1% chance to have heterochromatic eyes. (Before it was just humans, who had a chance of 50%.)
      Added more detailed messages to any negative affection changes at the end of sex.
      Added several new item tags, allowing clothing mods to define fuckable nipple requirement, arm/leg hinderance, speech muffling, discarding on unequip, and equip during sex.
      Also added 'SEALS_AREA' variations for the 'PLUGS_AREA' cltohing tags. Sealing counts as sealing the orifice without being inserted into it.
      The strap-on, anal beads, clover clamps, realistic dildo, butt plugs, insertable dildo, and strapless dildo can now all be equipped on non-unique NPCs during sex.
      Wearing clothing with a 'PLUGS_VAGINA' tag is now detected and influences the wearer's orgasm descriptions.
      In order to fix a bug, all characters now have surnames, with generic characters having randomly-generated ones. Surnames can be seen in the character view screen.
      Offspring now inherit their mother's surname. If your surname is blank, your offspring will be given a random surnames. If you change your surname at the town hall, all of your offspring will have their surnames updated.
      You can now change your slave's surnames in their inspection screen.
      Improved map rendering performance.
      Non-spectating participants in non-masturbation sex scenes now gain experience for the 'Pure virgin' fetish if they have a vagina, end the scene while being a virgin, and at least one of their partners orgasmed.
      Added arcane essence cost of using/firing weapons to their tooltips (if non-zero).
      Breast feeding part of the 'giving birth' scene is now changed to bottle-feeding if your nipples are inaccessible, your nipples are not normally-shaped, or you have lactation content turned off.
  • Bugs:
    • Fixed grammatical errors in several sex actions.
      Fixed parsing issues in Submission imp attack dialogue.
      Fixed parser errors in imp citadel content.
      Fixed issue where NPCs would sometimes get stuck trying to remove clothing during sex.
      Heterochromatic eyes will no longer be generated with the same colour. (Although you can still make them the same colour via Kate's shop or demon/slime transformations.)
      Fixed formatting error in eye descriptions.
      Fixed repetitive mouth-knotting orgasm description.
      Fixed incorrect descriptions of tests being performed on slaves in Lilaya's lab.
      Fixed error log being spammed by messages informing you that NPCs were returning null in some methods.
      Fixed rarity of unidentified clothing being displayed in the dye preview window.
      Friendly occupants will no longer get a job as 'an unemployed', and any occupants already affected by this in your save will start looking for a new job when you load in (unemployed occupants that have already moved out will get a new job).
      Fixed damage tooltips showing different values before and after buying a weapon from a shop. (When weapon is not held by you, tooltip now displays both the holder's and your damage.)
      Fixed issue where returning to a Hyorlyss's keep after gaining her key would throw a background error and softlock the game.
      Fixed issue where imps could be transformed to be taller to the point where they were classified as demons, and vice-versa.
      Added some error handling to catch the unusual case of an NPC's name being loaded in as an empty String.
      Fixed issue with rarity detection in clothing sometimes throwing a background error.
      Fixed issue with Jhortrax (the male imp fortress leader) not inserting dildo after combat loss sex scene. (Thanks to 'asymptote' for details on how to fix this.)
      Fixed issue where trying to open the debug menu in the main menu would throw background errors and break teh game until restarted.
      Fixed requirement of 'Tameshigiri' action in Jhortrax's imp fortress to take your weapon's modified damage into account.
      Fixed issue where saves wouldn't load into 0.2.12.6 correctly due to Youko surnames being blank.
      Fixed incorrect descriptions in alleyway succubus quick transform breast size tooltips.
      Fixed issue with some clothing items (such as the croptop) not concealing slots correctly.
      Fixed incorrect effects description of Biojuice Canister.
      Fixed slime encyclopedia entry not working.
      Fixed victory in Wolfgang & Karl's fight not dropping any items.
      Fixed bug where spectators in sex were using incorrect actions (which were being drawn from the available actions of non-spectators).
      Defeating the imps in the citadel now correctly sets the 'imps defeated' flag, resolving issues related to the youko still being in her laboratory, imps guards still being in the citadel, and the 'challenge' action remaining available.
      Added missing dialogue after citadel's imp defeat sex scene.
      Fixed a couple of issues with imp fortress's demon leaders not returning to their keeps.
      Fixed game freezing if you lost to imp fortress gate guards, or had sex with the gate guards, and were then thrown out.
      Fixed getting stuck when asking Lyssieth's gate guards about their uniforms.
      Fixed issue with clubbers spawning in the night club having their home tile being set as the very bottom-left of Dominion's street tiles. (This will also retroactively fix all clubbers with this issue.)
      Fixed item entries in the encyclopedia being lost between saves.
      Self-impregnations now count offspring as just mothered, not both mothered and fathered, in the pregnancy stats screen.
      Self-milking should now correctly take into account milking room upgrades. Also added stats into the milking room upgrades info to let you know exactly what the base maximum output per hour is.
      Fixed issue where assigning slaves to be publicly used could sometimes result in an NPC being placed out-of-bounds of the map, which would cause your save file to not load correctly.
      As a temporary fix to enslavement dialogue bugs, the imps inside fortresses & the citadel can no longer be enslaved. I will add support for enslaving them later, but for now, you can get just imp slaves from the tunnels.
      Duplicate arcane keys and key-chain necklaces will be removed when you load in to 0.3. Lyssieth's ring will also be removed, if it should have been.
      Fixed modded clothing using the new shortened equip descriptions format using the 'rough' variant in non-rough scenes, and vice-versa.
      Fixed issue where your companion would be counted as a submissive, instead of dominant, spectator when choosing 'Solo sex' after beating imp groups.

    Version 0.2.12.6 Progress Update

    Hello again!

    Sorry again that it's a little later than planned, but I've pushed 0.2.12.6 to the github's dev branch, which mainly contains dialogue for the siren's citadel. There are also some bug fixes and other minor things in there, although there are still quite a few bugs left for me to fix for Friday's v0.3.

    As well as fixing those bugs, I'll be spending this week working on adding Lyssieth's encounter, as well as a few other minor things. I'll also do my very best to get the map of the fields added, although there won't be much (if any) content in there to start with...


    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!

    ALSO IMPORTANT: Only the 'dev' branch of the github is updated to 0.2.12.6, with 'master' kept at 0.2.12. Make sure you build from dev!


    Version 0.2.12.6 patch notes:


  • Gameplay:
    • Added all dialogue for solo and companion scenes in the imp citadel.
      Added post-defeat sex scene for losing Siren combat. (There was a more involved sequence of events planned for this, but I didn't have time to add it - it will be added at some point in the future.)
  • Other:
    • Switched primary and secondary colours for tagged choker, and changed the icon's scribble to read 'Bound Bitch'.
      Female horses and reindeer now have a base ass size of 'large', and female cows have 'huge'. (This is randomised when NPCs are generated, so some will still have larger or smaller asses.)
      Increased base size of all race's female nipples, and additionally increased base size of female cow areolae.
      Improved race menu in encyclopedia, so that subspecies of a race are displayed in a sub-menu.
      Consolidated all elemental races into one 'elemental' race (keeping the elemental types as subspecies), and converted individual elemental damage/resistance to a universal 'elemental' one.
      Moved witch set out into res folder, added tertiary colour to witch hat, and added 'wide-brimmed' hat variation.
  • Bugs:
    • Fixed BDSM clothing set icon to be black instead of white.
      You can no longer escape from the boss fights in imp fortresses, nor the imp 'challenge' fight in the citadel.
      Fixed cause of tattoo tooltips being cut off at the bottom. (The tooltip formatting system is still a little buggy - I'll remake it at some point.)
      Fixed breast size in subspecies encyclopedia using the enum name for the description.
      Added some error handling for if clothing throws errors related to patterns not being present.
      Fixed issue with youko icons not having a background circle.
      Fixed imp damage/resistance attributes not working.
      Fixed imps sometimes giving birth to non-imps.
      Your companion now gets the same attribute boost as you do after winning the imp fight when using 'challenge' in the citadel.
      Fixed being able to start the imp challenge even after the siren had been defeated.
      Fixed issue with the citadel's imp challenge freezing at the end of combat.
      Your status panel is no longer minimised when acting as a spectator.
      Fixed issues with some unique NPCs not putting their clothing back on correctly after sex.
      Takahashi will now correctly deny orgasms during her oral scene.
      Fixed issue where dropping equipped clothing during sex wouldn't work on the first button press.
      The demon leaders should now correctly be in the siren's throne room when you get there.

    Slight delay on 0.2.12.6

    Hello!

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but while I've almost managed it, I'm still a few hours away from getting all the citadel dialogue finished for the minor v0.2.12.6 github update. It's getting quite late for me where I am, so I think I'm going to have to delay it until Monday or Tuesday night.

    The full, public version of 0.3 should still be out on Friday. Sorry about this small delay!
