Delay

I guess nobody's surprised by this by now, but the release is delayed. I don't know when the next update will be. Probably some time within a week or so, but who knows. I'll push to github on Friday, at the very least.

To those of you who were supporting this project via Patreon, I have sent an email to their support staff asking for my page to be deleted, so don't worry if you can't cancel your pledge, as the page should be gone tomorrow. I might get around to properly setting up my SubscribeStar page when and if I manage to release an update on time.

v0.3.1.7 Hotfix Release (Updated to v0.3.1.8)

Edit: I updated the download links to v0.3.1.8, which fixes an issue with sex sometimes breaking upon orgasm. The patch notes are at the bottom of this post.


Hello once again!

There were some significant bugs in v0.3.1.6, so I've made this hotfix to address them. Thank you for the reports in the comments section of v0.3.1.6's post; I think I've fixed all of the bugs which were mentioned in there.

The next update is most likely to be v0.3.2, and due to the time taken making this hotfix, will now be out at around 25th-27th March.


As always, you can also build these releases yourself from the public github (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 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 0.3.1.7, with 'master' kept at 0.3.1.1. Make sure you build from dev!


v0.3.1.8 Download Links

This is still an alpha, and contains bugs and half-finished content!

Version 0.3.1.7 patch notes:


  • Gameplay:
    • Added 'mineral oil' transformation modifier to potion enchanting's cum, girlcum, and milk options. Mineral oil imbued fluids cause condoms to break.
  • Clothing
    • Added a 'Colour Test T-shirt' item, which can only be spawned from the debug menu, to assist modders with visualising how colours look in-game.
      Added colour shades: Navy blue, blue-grey, khaki.
  • Other:
    • Anal content toggle no longer sets newly-spawned NPCs to hating anal fetishes, and instead simply removes all anal-related actions from being available during sex, both for you and all NPCs.
      Added a 'foot content' toggle to the Content Options screen, which works in the same way as the reworked anal toggle to disable foot-related sex actions.
      Added an entry in your room's calendar for May, regarding Mother's week.
      Added a small encounter on Dominion's boulevard tiles during Mother's week (second week of May, in in-game time), in which you are gifted some pills. There is a 5% chance of encountering this each time you move into a boulevard tile.
      Fennec ears are now tagged as being large enough to be used as handles in sex.
      NPC-on-NPC virginity losses (which are known of) are now displayed in more detail in their character view page.
      Added day of the week to the calendar tooltip (just above the minimap).
      Gave the new dresses some slightly more permissive equip conditions, so you can now wear them with clothing in the stomach slot.
      Slightly improved the pregnancy stats table's 'additional relationships' column.
      Added a 'Family' indication in characters' information pages, under the 'Relationships' section, for if they are related to you.
  • Bugs:
    • Fixed issue with prostitutes in Angel's Kiss being deleted when you loaded in from a save prior to v0.3.1.6.
      Added catch to delete surplus clients which had spawned in the brothel (as a result of the bug that was fixed in the line above this one).
      Fixed issue with half-demon icons sometimes breaking.
      Fixed issue where entering an imp fortress would break the game.
      Fixed Vixen's Virility tooltip only mentioning that it boosts fertility, not virility.
      Fixed forced creampie dialogue replacing your name with 'you'.
      Fixed 'Molest' action on slaves sometimes not applying affection loss.
      Slimes are now correctly susceptible to getting pregnant for as long as there is any cum stored anywhere in their bodies. (The game was only checking for cum stored in a slime's vagina before.)
      Fixed 'seductive look' action being available in doggy style even if the performer wasn't in the required slot (on all fours).
      Fixed inventory slots which a character physically didn't have (such as wings, horns, etc.) being able to be dirtied.
      Fixed companions as being treated as submissive spectators when you were dominantly having sex after beating attackers.
      Fixed milk transformation descriptions incorrectly referencing breasts when it was affecting crotch milk and vice versa.
      Fixed slaves who you own being able to end sex with you if they went into the resisting pace.
      Fixed issue with the greyed-out race icons on tiles (indicating that someone is not at home) not showing up.
      Some minor incorrect description fixes.
      Fixed the 'Rest until morning/evening' action in your room sometimes not applying the 'well rested' status effect.
      Fixed prostitutes never spawning in with shoes.
      Fixed modded clothing not being used for random NPC clothing generation.
      Using 'Grow cock (self)' in sex now correctly fills cum to your maximum storage value (which is set to 150ml if less than 150ml).
      Fixed issue with Vicky's inventory never properly clearing upon the daily reset, causing inventory to eventually overflow and cause spells and other items to not be available.
      Fixed Vicky's essences for sale being a random amount from 0 to 10, instead of the intended 10 to 20.
      Tidied up some of the superfluous error logging.
      Fixed issue where pressing enter in the pronouns page blanked the whole page out.
      Fixed issue where exporting an already-imported slave, and then importing that new export at the auction block, would cause your original slave to be moved to the auction block along with the new slave.
      Fixed the 'Test Subject' fetish preventing you from spitting out fetish-altering potions.
      Fixed Lilaya losing her relation as your aunt after undergoing demon transformations.
      Fixed issue with milk modifiers not being saved correctly.
      Fixed issue with fluids stored in milking rooms not stacking correctly.

    Version 0.3.1.8 patch notes:


  • Other:
    • Reduced time taken to travel through each of Submission's tiles from 5 to 3 minutes.
  • Bugs:
    • Fixed major issue that was causing orgasms to sometimes cause the game to break.
      Fixed calendar in your room not displaying October, and the other two months not working.
      Fixed issues in parsing when milking girlcum in a milking room.
      Fixed some broken lubrication descriptions in sex.

    v0.3.1.6 Preview Release

    Hello again!

    As mentioned in previous posts, this update was mainly focused on fixing bugs and other minor things. The next week's worth of work will be more focused on adding content, so there should be some new content to see when v0.3.2 is released (which should be in about a week or so).

    This is the version which normally would have been the 'Patreon/github preview', but due to LT no longer having a Patreon, I decided to package it as a full public release. Once I've got a SubscribeStar page fully set up, these packaged preview releases will go back to being a reward for backers, but they will always continue to be publicly available on github, and full releases will also always be made available for everyone at the same time.

    It has been labelled as '0.3.1.6' to distinguish it from v0.3.1.5, which was pushed to the dev github yesterday.


    As always, you can also build these releases yourself from the public github (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 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 0.3.1.6, with 'master' kept at 0.3.1.1. Make sure you build from dev!


    v0.3.1.6 Download Links

    This is still an alpha, and contains bugs and half-finished content!

    Version 0.3.1.6 patch notes:


  • Engine:
    • Added support for defining patterns in modded clothing. Reference the 'res/mods/innoxia/items/clothing/rentalMommy/rental_mommy.xml' for an example (line 179).
      Added support for author attribution in modded clothing and weapons. As above, reference the rental_mommy.xml file to see how it works in clothing (line 11), or the 'res/weapons/innoxia/dagger/dagger.xml' for weapons (line 5).
      Updated Weapon xml loading to use BlazingMagpie's xmlParsing Element structure.
      Did some more optimisation of save files, cutting file size by about 10% on larger saves.
      Added support for new clothingAuthorTag and weaponAuthorTag elements in modded clothing/weapons to be simply 'authorTag'. (Change from initial implementation in 0.3.1.2)
  • Gameplay:
    • Reverted: You can now enslave the demons in Dominion's dark alleyway tiles again. Finch's explanation when you first get a slaver license has also been updated, as well as the lore in the 'Dominion's History' book in Lilaya's library.
      Added a 'Thorough wash' action to your room, which cleans out all of the fluids in your orifices.
      Clothing which plugs or seals orifices no longer gets dirty from creampies which it is keeping sealed/plugged in. (This clothing can still get dirty if someone cums on it.)
      Half-demon harpies (furies) can now spawn in the harpy nests, and Submission attackers can also now be half-demons. Both are at a chance of 5% per encounter, and the chance for Dominion half-demon attackers has similarly been increased to 5% (from 2.5%).
      By default, half-demons now need two orgasms to be satisfied in sex, while demons, lilin, and elder lilin need 3.
      Added ability to use the milking room's equipment to manually milk your companions or slaves assigned to it. You can also use the 'pump' actions on them.
      There is now a 5% chance for alleyway attackers to be a taur.
      Offspring will now correctly be generated as a taur if the parent which they take after is a taur themselves.
      You can now meet taur offspring in Dominion's alleyways.
  • Contributors:
    • Added: 'Polka dots' pattern for clothing, in sizes 'tiny', 'small', and 'big'. (PR#1097 by Phlarx)
      Added: 'Ballgown' (feminine, torso slot, sold by Nyan). (PR#1097 by Phlarx)
      Added: 'Evening gown' (feminine, torso slot, sold by Nyan). (PR#1097 by Phlarx)
      Added: 'Rockabilly dress' (feminine, torso slot, sold by Nyan). (PR#1097 by Phlarx)
      Added: 'Vintage dress' (feminine, torso slot, sold by Nyan). (PR#1097 by Phlarx)
      Fixed a few issues with the new metric & imperial units support. (PR#1102 by DJ Addi)
  • Clothing:
    • Moved all shoe clothing into the external res folder, tidied up some of the svg files, and added more colouring options to those which only had one.
      Added 'jet black' as an available clothing colour.
  • Other:
    • Greatly reduced the occurrence of '~Hic!~' inserts in drunk speech.
      Slaves given permission to wash their bodies will now clean all fluids out of their orifices.
      Improved orgasm's targeted cum area detections and descriptions, so, for example, cumming on someone's stomach will now dirty not only their stomach, but also clothing in their torso and over-torso slots.
      Split up Vicky's trade action into weapons, items, and clothing. Due to this change, Vicky's shop inventory will be reset once you load into this version.
      Newly spawned clothing now treats colours and pattern colours for different primary, secondary, and tertiary areas as mutually-exclusive, where possible.
      Amber's walkies scene now ends with you being returned to the lounge, instead of the entrance hall.
      Added separate icon colours for demons and half-demons.
      Added variations to the 'pregnancy chance' descriptions for if characters impregnate themselves.
      Save game info on main menu when starting up the game should now correctly display your character's race name, as based on femininity value.
      Increased demons' default wing size from tiny to large. (Also increased Lilaya's wing size from average to large, and set Meraxis to having small wings.)
      Added 'breast size' and 'penis size' preference modifiers to the 'Content options' screen (at the very bottom).
      Increased chance of friendly occupants finding a job each day from 10% to 20%.
      Miscellaneous code cleanup.
      A slave's value now takes into account the clothing they are wearing, as well as all items in their inventory.
      The value of slaves is no longer increased by a fixed amount per fetish they have, and is instead multiplicative based on number of owned fetishes (+5% value per fetish).
      Changed Rose's special scene to be unlocked after gifting her a rose.
  • Sex:
    • Changed 'Twintail pull'/'Twin braids pull' from being exclusive to the kneeling-oral position, to any position in which the character receiving a blowjob has at least two hands free.
      Both types of rabbit ears, as well as floppy dog ears, can now be used in an 'ear pull' action in sex, which is functionally similar to the 'Twintail pull' action when receiving a blowjob from the targeted character, and similar to the 'Pull hair' action when fucking the character doggy-style. (Both require at least two hands to be free.)
      Did some more improvements to sex AI, removing yet more instances where NPCs would start/stop actions in sex.
      Fixed crotch nipples being incorrectly treated as penetrable in some instances.
      Fixed nipple penetration content setting not applying to crotch nipples.
      Rose will no longer penetrate herself on your cock in her dominant scene.
      Added 'Restrict control' & 'Unrestrict control' actions in sex, for when you are the dom and you want to limit a sub's ability to start non-self penetrative actions.
      NPCs who have foot fetishes now correctly have a weighted chance to want to prioritise using their (or others') feet in sex.
      NPCs who have a positive desire towards the sadist fetish will no longer bother to remove their footwear before giving their partner a footjob.
      NPCs who use their mouth/tongue in any sex actions will now have their mouth stats revealed to you. (This can be seen in their description page, in the third paragraph under 'Appearance'.)
      Restricting/permitting self-actions should now be working correctly.
  • Bugs:
    • Fixed: Major issue which has been present for several versions, where clothing in all shopkeepers' inventories was disappearing at random.
      Fixed issue with Brax not being at the reception desk after defeating him.
      Fixed coverings which were set to 'glow' losing their glow upon loading.
      Fixed issue where forbidding NPCs from managing clothing during sex would have no effect.
      Fixed issue with NPCs sometimes choosing to perform actions that they disliked or hated.
      Fixed striped toeless socks only being able to be equipped by harpies.
      Fixed issue with incorrect character being described as unable to equip clothing when body parts were incompatible with clothing type (such as trying to equip normal shoes onto hoofed feet).
      Fixed issue where in some cases Lilaya's pregnancy would never end.
      Fixed some parsing and grammatical issues.
      Fixed issue where NPCs birthed as a result of two NPCs having sex were being saved and stored in your save file, but never used.
      Fixed the character view 'Relationships' section displaying relationships towards characters you have not yet met (most noticeable with Lilaya having an affection towards 'the dark siren' from the start of the game).
      Fixed illogical instances of clothing being concealed, such as a full-length dress being completely concealed when wearing a leather jacket over the top.
      Fixed incorrect description in the hypno-watch inventory use tooltip.
      Fixed incorrect instance of Kelly being referred to as Katherine (Zaranix's maids).
      Demonic harpies (furies) no longer spawn with back wings in addition to arm wings.
      Fixed bug in Alexa's dialogue, where some code was displayed instead of the intended result.
      Fixed issue in the main quest where you first meet Alexa, where her intial dialogue would repeat after selecting the action 'Scarlett's woe'.
      Slaves owned by you, the player, can no longer choose to end sex if you are both in a dominant slot and are able to end sex yourself.
      Fixed incorrect description in Lilaya's TF orgasm scene, in which Lyssieth was fucking her pussy.
      Fixed slightly odd orgasm descriptions when tail-fucking or fingering yourself.
      Fixed parsing errors when summoning your elemental to intimidate the imp guards at Submission's fortresses.
      Post-sex checks for all partners satisfied (in order to increase lusty maiden fetish experience) now correctly check against the number of orgasms that partner wanted, not just 1 or greater.
      Fixed issue with the glowing teleport indication showing up at the same coordinates as your current location when clicking to view different maps.
      Fixed issue with NPC map icons running out of bounds when there were more than four or so on a tile.
      Fixed some incorrect descriptions related to ear transformations.
      The 'Pull hair' sex action for the doggy-style position is now correctly only available if the target has hair (of at least 8cm in length).
      Fixed bug where setting futanari testicles to off would end up making all characters have internal testicles. This fix should retroactively apply to any of your saved games that were affected.
      Fixed incorrect size being shown for crotch-boobs in the character overview tooltip.
      Crotch-boob milk with the modifier 'mineral oil' will now correctly melt condoms.
      Fixed issue with parsing engine crashing when using a combination of IF with brackets and THEN statements.
      Fixed parsing error in the 'Lustful Suggestion' sex action.
      Fixed v0.3.1.2 issue where anal options were never available.
      Fixed v0.3.1.2 issue where dominant NPCs were treating your 'orgasms until satisfied' as though you were an NPC as well.
      Fixed issue where NPCs would sometimes not change position when it was necessary in order to fulfill their preferences.
      Fixed some issues with NPCs not responding to positioning requests properly.
      Fixed issue with both all 'request position' as well as the normal 'enter position' actions being available to you as a sub in sex.
      Fixed issue with your character always being named as a full demon, even if you transformed your parts into human ones.
      Fixed dialogue in the imp citadel's 'ring trick' scene being missing if you had a companion with you.
      Fixed issue with NPCs not performing their expected actions in sex. (This was occurring when their preferences in main sex were classified as 'foreplay' actions, such as oral.)
      Fixed issue with modded weapons not displaying hit or miss descriptions.
      Fixed issue with random attackers during an arcane storm not disappearing after their attack if you had companions with you.
      Fixed issue with 'betrayed' NPCs in alleyways, harpy nests, and submission not disappearing after the fight & any resulting sex with them. ('Betrayed' meaning after you increase their affection by talking to them, and then choosing to attack them once they're friendly towards you.)
      Fixed 'arcane precision' perk having a red connecting line in the perk tree view.
      Fixed alleyway attackers spawning wearing the new dresses contributed by Phlarx.
      Fixed issue with the clothing enchantment screen's 'Limit--' and 'Limit++' sometimes not working.
      Added a cleanup check for Dominion's arcane storm attackers who were stuck on tiles due to a bug in the previous version.
      Fixed broken descriptions when getting a cultist to equip a condom.
      Fixed description of all clothing management in sex being 'Clothing removal', even if it was a displacement, equip, or unjinxing action.
      Fixed incorrect item use descriptions for the rose and rose bouquet.
      Fixed issues with NPCs' self actions, where the NPC performing the action would sometimes not be described nor treated as the correct NPC.
      Fixed incorrect reference to Jhortrax impregnating you with imps.
      Fixed some incorrect unit references, such as penis length always being displayed in inches in the leg configuration transformation description.
      Penis and vagina virginities are no longer reset when you change your leg configuration.
      Squirting orgasms no longer dirties 'plugs vagina' or 'seals vagina' clothing.
      Fixed issue where even if you had all furry subspecies disabled, slimes could still spawn as a furry subspecies.
      Fixed the 'Command' action at the entrance to the imp fortresses not working correctly.

    v0.3.1.5 pushed to github

    Hello again!

    This is just a short post to say that I've pushed v0.3.1.5 to the dev branch on github. It mostly contains bug fixes and other minor things, with the content portion of v0.3.2 being planned for this next stage of v0.3.1.5->v0.3.2. You can see the patch notes here: https://github.com/Innoxia/liliths-throne-public/blob/dev/src/com/lilithsthrone/res/doc/todo_list.txt#L126

    I'll do some final testing and get it packaged for a 'preview' release tomorrow (Wednesday) evening/night. As there's no Patreon, it'll be a public release here on the blog.

    Saturday, 9 March 2019

    Progress towards v0.3.1.5

    Hello once again!

    As I said I would at the bottom of the last update post, I spent most of this week focusing on bug fixes and other minor tweaks. I am a little behind where I wanted to be, however, due to the time lost in dealing with Patreon's vague emails concerning their attempts at censoring Lilith's Throne. Almost all of the time set aside for today's work was lost in dealing with their sudden 4-hour time limit in which to get matters resolved, and then responding to the resulting messages of concern. Please understand that this was a one-off event, and I promise that I will do my best to catch up on today's missed work on Monday, after which I will push v0.3.1.5 to github.

    I have pushed my current local branch (which I've labelled as v0.3.1.2) to the dev branch on github, and you can see the current patch notes here: https://github.com/Innoxia/liliths-throne-public/blob/dev/src/com/lilithsthrone/res/doc/todo_list.txt#L126

    I expect to have v0.3.1.5 pushed to github on Tuesday night, and considering that my Patreon page has been closed down, I will probably get a packaged build of it out for everyone, either on that same night or on Wednesday.

    I also just want to thank you for any and all support you might have given over on Patreon while it was still active, and reassure you that development of Lilith's Throne will continue at full pace for the foreseeable future.

    Lilith's Throne Patreon shutdown

    Hello again!

    As some of you might have seen over on the now-locked Lilith's Throne Patreon page, I made a post an hour or so ago saying that it was to be shut down due to containing content which Patreon objects to. To avoid repeating myself, and for posterity's sake, here is the message in full:

    Dearest Patrons and viewers of this page,

    I cannot emphasise enough how much I have appreciated your support over the many months which I have had this page here, and I am eternally grateful not only for all of your financial backing, but also for all of your kind comments, suggestions, and feedback.

    Alas, you might already suspect that something is afoot from the note of finality in this message, and I can confirm that Patreon's sanctimonious censors, steadfast in their belief that the sexual rights of fictional characters are sacrosanct, have issued the ultimatum that Lilith's Throne must be censored in order to remove all non-con and incest content, or else face immediate removal from this platform. If you do not have the time or inclination to read the rest of this post, please know two things; one, I have opted for the latter of these two options; two, development of Lilith's Throne will be continuing at full pace for quite some time yet, even if its Patreon page is no more.

    After Patreon set out on the course of censorship a long time ago now, I have seen many adult projects either shut down or adjust their content in order to adhere to this platform's moral sensibilities. I assumed that as Lilith's Throne contained purely text-based, literary content, it would not fall foul of the zealous censors under Patreon's employ, but I was wrong. As is often the case with these things, a little removal of "incorrect views" here and there inevitability soon expands to widespread censorship of all content which is regarded as disagreeable to those in a position of power.

    As mentioned above, I have been issued an ultimatum by Patreon's "Trust & Safety" division; censor my game, or have my page removed. By censoring my game I would continue to have financial security, even if by a lessened amount due to those of you who would quit my page or the platform itself in protest. What would it cost me though? Undoubtedly the original vision I had for the game would be a casualty of such censorship, but I fear that it would be somewhat more than that. To censor my game would not only be a reprehensible betrayal of your trust, but it would also send a message that I support the concept of censorship, the suppression of literary artistic expression, and the belief that adults must be protected from their own thoughts. Following on from that, it would mean forever living with the fact that I would be willing to sell out and abandon my ideals.

    This price is far too great for me to pay, and as such I have opted to let my deadline for censorship of Lilith's Throne expire. Today, 8th March, at 5pm Pacific Standard Time, my page is scheduled to be locked and later deleted by a loyal member of one of Patreon's "Trust & Safety" division.

    In the context of this being nothing more than an obscure adult game in amongst the vast sea of information we love, hate, and know as the internet, I appreciate the fact that my words may sound absurd, and some of you are no doubt of the mind to cry out "Oh, what pitiful stuff" and dismiss them as the result of mere passing passion. Regardless of how you choose to take them, know that my words are written in complete sincerity, and that I would choose to withdraw and finish my game at a slower pace with no support than to be a party to the censorship of literary works.

    Please also know that I have not been frivolous with your financial support, and, fearing that this day might come, I have saved enough to allow me to continue full-time work on Lilith's Throne for several months yet. After receiving Patreon's ultimatum, I have also established correspondence with the support team over at their competing service, "SubscribeStar", and all signs of Lilith's Throne being accepted on their platform seem promising so far, so if you were interested in supporting me elsewhere, look out for an announcement on my blog/discord regarding that. (Which will hopefully be within the next few weeks.) Please do note that this is not the end of Lilith's Throne, but merely the end of its Patreon page.

    Once more I wish to express my thanks for your support from the bottom of my heart, and I will always fondly remember the kind messages, comments, and feedback that you posted here. I also apologise for the suddenness of this message (what would a message from me be without an apology?), but I only received the 5pm deadline a couple of hours ago.

    I have been, and shall always remain, faithfully yours,

    Innoxia


    P.S. You will always be able to find me on my blog (https://lilithsthrone.blogspot.com/), or on the Lilith's Throne discord (https://discordapp.com/invite/nDRvMXH). I can also be reached at innoxia7@gmail.com if you would like to correspond by email (although be warned that I am sometimes slow to respond on there). For those of you who are, or were, Legendary or Epic supporters, and who do not yet have their name in the credits, please do send me an email to the aforementioned address, letting me know of your Patreon name, along with what name you'd like me to use in the game's credits.


    As I say in the message above, thanks to the past support of patrons, development of Lilith's Throne will continue as normal for at least the next 6 months. If I am unable to get onto an alternative support platform in that time, development will still continue, but at a slower pace due to inevitable new work commitments. No matter what, I will complete development of this game.

    I will post an announcement here on the blog, as well as over on discord, when I have any news regarding a new support platform. Hopefully that will be within the next few weeks.

    P.S. I am still planning on making another post regarding this week's progress before I sleep.

    Anonymous comments

    Anonymous comments on this blog have been re-enabled. Sorry that I wasn't clear on my reasoning for the temporary disabling of them, but it was due to a lack of time in which to moderate exceptionally hostile remarks that some anonymous posters were making towards one another. You are of course free to express displeasure towards myself and/or the development of Lilith's Throne; the only thing I ask of you is to please be respectful towards others in the comments.

    I will make a post regarding this week's progress before I go to sleep tonight, but until then, know that the github update for 0.3.1.5 will be pushed on Monday or Tuesday.

    Plan for v0.3.2 onwards

    Hello again everyone!

    As I'm sure most of you will agree, it took me far too long from v0.3 to get v0.3.1 released. As a result, I've decided to switch back to the 'roughly once per week' preview/full release cycle that I was using before, but instead of giving a list of version-specific goals which were inevitably not all achieved, I thought that I'd instead give you an overview of my plans for the entire of v0.3-v0.4.

    Using this method, the next update will be the github/Patreon preview, and will be out some time near the start of next week. Roughly a week or so after that will come the full public release of v0.3.2, which I anticipate to be out around 20th-22nd March.


    v0.3.2 - v0.4

    Here is the list of everything I currently have planned from now until the start of v0.4. Please be aware that there might be some minor things that I've forgotten to add to this list (but will still get done in time for v0.4), and that some tasks are definitely going to take a lot more time than others.

    - World map encounters for every tile type which you can currently visit.
    - Add Claire's quest.
    - Add buying Brax from Candi.
    - Add Alexa's quest.
    - Add Axel's quest.
    - Combat update, to include new Enforcer content and balancing of combat/stats.
    - Add Elis map and content.
    - Add Shinrin highlands content.
    - Add main quest up to the point of resolving Lunette's content.
    - Add in more slave jobs, management, options, and dialogue.
    - Add more jobs for offspring & friendly occupants.
    - Add new Shopping Arcade restaurant, with a tie-in with new Pix's gym content.
    - Add more Meraxis, Lilaya & Rose, and Lyssieth content.
    - Add item, race, and sex modding support.
    - Add unique dialogue for offspring who have moved in.
    - Improve orgasm denial scenes.
    - Add more sex actions and improve sex descriptions & dialogue.
    - Add and expand size difference content, both of the 'orifice being too small for penetration' variety, as well as 'one character being significantly taller than the other'.
    - Add more alleyway encounter content.
    - Add day/night cycle content.
    - Add more harpy nest content.
    - Lots of bug fixes.
    - Sort out more PRs.

    There are still quite a few bugs in v0.3.1.1, so while I will try to get some new content added for next week's github/Patreon preview, I think that the majority of the week's work will be focused on fixing bugs.

    v0.3.1.1 (Hotfix) Release

    Hello once again!

    This hotfix has been made to address the numerous bugs in v0.3.1, as while quite a few of them were only minor, there were several major issues that really needed to be fixed asap. You can read below in the patch notes to see which bugs have been fixed, but the really major ones were the one which was causing clothing to be duplicated, a couple of ones that were leading to the game crashing, and one that was causing icons and other UI elements to display incorrectly on some systems.

    The next post will be on Monday, and will be outlining my plans for version 0.3.2, as well as going over the changes to my release schedule.


    As always, you can also build these releases 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.)

    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 0.3.1.1 patch notes:


  • Gameplay:
    • You can no longer enslave demons found in dark alleyways. (This was meant to have been implemented alongside references in the lore to demons being almost never enslaved, but I didn't have time to add it until now.)
  • Contributors:
    • Fixed issues with the game's rendering, both in the main menu, and in the inventory, which some people were experiencing. (PR#1077 by CognitiveMist)
      Added separate imperial/metric options (in 'Options' -> 'Unit preferences') for lengths, fluids, and weights, as well as 12/24 hour and international date settings. Fixed some issues with the metric/imperial units code. (PR#1082 by DJ Addi)
  • Other:
    • Set 'fury'/'furies' as the half-demon name variant for harpies.
      Submissive participants in sex now start off as being unable to change position unless you give them permission.
      Added colour highlighting to orifice plasticity text in the character view screens.
      Sex actions that start an ongoing action are now coloured in light or reddish pink to denote it being a 'submissive' action (i.e. using an orifice), or a 'dominant' action (i.e. using a penetration type).
      Increased starting wing size for elementals to 'large'.
      Added post-combat victory transform action to Submission tunnel slime encounters, as well as to bat cavern slime encounters.
      Altered character creation's cum/milk production choices to use the incremental changing UI instead of a fixed one.
      Fluids now drain out of orifices at a rate based on the total amount of fluid within that orifice, at a rate per second of: (1/20,000) * (total fluid)
      Added indication of the rate of absorption of fluids in the tootips for creampied areas.
      Siblings will now call each other by their names in speech, instead of 'bro'' and 'sis'.
      Added crotch-nipple recolouring options to Kate's shop.
      Crotch-boob tansformations will now set the shape to the associated race's default type. (i.e. Applying a 'bovine crotch boob' transformation to someone will now give them udders.)
      Added unicorn, pegasus, and alicorn morphs as encounters, both in the nightclub, and in Dominion's alleyways. (In the alleyways they are rare to find, with alicorns being extremely rare.)
      Added an 'All items' view to the debug menu (action 5), from which you can see all item's ids, as well as spawn them in by clicking on them.
  • Bugs:
    • Fixed the 'Limit++' button in enchantment menu not working.
      Fixed issue where clothing would sometimes be duplicating when managing your inventory or enchanting items.
      Fixed numerous grammatical and parsing errors in sex descriptions.
      Fixed incorrect orgasm description in the mating press (bottom) sex position.
      You can no longer manage inventories while about to orgasm or preparing for a partner's orgasm, as doing so was causing some issues with the AI.
      Fixed issue with offspring's willingness to allow you to manage their inventory being reversed (they would allow you manage it at all affection levels other than the maximum one).
      NPCs who appear to attack you on the streets of DOminion during an arcane storm will now correctly be removed from the tile if you escape from combat with them.
      Fixed description of starting sex with a slave saying that they'd been ordered to crawl when they hadn't, and not crawling when they had.
      Fixed slaves in stocks being able to perform 'self' actions in sex, such as fingering.
      Fixed issue related to half-demon names where the game could bug out, resulting in UI elements breaking.
      Slightly lowered values at which you can use certain actions when talking to Nyan so that they're correctly associated with the game's affection levels.
      Fixed bug in sex AI where it was not possible for NPCs to generate a preference for receiving vaginal sex if they had other preferences that can compete with it. (This is what was causing Nyan to want to always receive anal sex.)
      Nyan is now correctly limited to receiving one gift per day, as well as only having sex once per day (as she is busy running her shop).
      The tracking of Nyan's dialogue limitations (i.e. one action per day) is now correctly preserved upon saving/loading.
      Fixed the 'restrict/permit positioning' actions in sex not working.
      Fixed orifice recovery times being a lot slower than intended. (The rate of recovery at all levels has been doubled.)
      NPCs will now correctly end sex if they aren't enjoying it. (Provided they have the necessary level of control.)
      Fixed inconsistent and incorrect capitalisation of 'mom' and 'dad' when used in your offspring's speech.
      Fixed parsing errors related to clothing blocking crotch boobs, as well as clothing rubbing against body parts being identified as your highest layer of clothing, instead of lowest.
      Fixed masculine characters' toes using feminine descriptors.
      Fixed slavery overview's event log tracking all events as though they were occurring on day 1.
      The spell 'siren's call' now correctly applies the initial physical component of its spell damage. (It was only applying damage from the resulting status effect before.)
      Lust damage taken from masochist/sadist fetishes during combat is now displayed as a rounded decimal.
      Sex scenes now correctly start with you in the pace that was chosen.
      Rental Mommy interaction is now correctly disabled during an arcane storm.
      Fixed issue upon loading a game where energy, aura, and lust would be altered from the values at which they were saved.
      You can no longer have more milk or cum stored in your breasts/testicles than their maximum storage values.
      All 'seals X body part' tagged clothing (such as the 'anal-only pastie') now correctly seals the related body part in order to stop fluids leaking out. The 'seals vagina' tag now also seals the vaginal urethra.
      Fixed offspring created during Lilaya's or Meraxis's demon TF not being marked as demons in the phone's pregnancy stats screen. (This fix will unfortunately not retroactively apply to your save.)
      Fixed issue with descriptions of crotch boobs being displayed in certain cases (such as when removing an NPC's clothing), even if you had that option turned off.
      Fixed issue where setting a name for your slaves to call you by wasn't working.
      Fixed issue where Lyssieth's name would sometimes not be displayed when the player was using it within speech.
      Fixed the 'pet' character in Amber's walking scene being able to kiss you while mounting.
      Fixed issues in the 'pet' sex in Amber's walking scene, the start of pregnancy roulette scenes, and several scenes in the imp fortress, where starting sex would cause the game to hang and eventually crash.
      Fixed issue where characters would not be identified as unicorn-mophs or alicorn-morphs (and their taur variants) if the number of horns was the last transformation they underwent.
      Imps in Submission's fortresses and associated tunnels can no longer be enslaved, as it was causing issues with the resulting dialogue. I will come back and add support for this later, but I didn't have time for anything other than this quick fix for this version.
      Fixed issue where upon loading a saved game, some attributes might end up being randomised. (Most noticeable when setting an NPC's corruption to 0, and upon loading the game, they would have a random, non-0 corruption value.)
      Fixed isssue with the threesome scenes in slave rooms only working if you had a companion with you. It now works if there are two slaves in the room.
      The demon rulers of the imp fortresses will stop dropping keys after you've gained access to the siren's citadel. This should also result in their alternate dialogues being seen after beating them.
      Fixed issue with NPCs who hated the masturbation fetish still choosing to perform self actions during sex. (Which was resulting in them quickly hating the sex.)
