Version 0.3.7.3 Release

Hello again,

For this version, I've got the last remaining section of Scarlett's content added (her scenes in Helena's nest for after you've completed Helena's romance quest), as well as getting a few bugs fixed. I've still got Natalya's content left to add, but as I'm planning on keeping that quite linear and limited in scope, I should be able to fit it in as part of v0.3.8.

Speaking of the next version, I'm planning on getting PRs merged, more bugs fixed, and some generic Enforcer content added for v0.3.8 (as well as Natalya's content and filling in more of Axel's quest placeholders). After that, I'll focus on polishing everything up as much as possible for v0.3.9, which should be a very small and rapidly-released version, before finally moving on to the Fields content in v0.4.

The next release will be a preview one (v0.3.7.5), which I plan to have out around this same time next week. The full, public release of v0.3.8 should follow on a week after that.

Thank you all for your patience and feedback during this somewhat lengthy Helena update!

P.S. If there are any major game-breaking bugs in this version, I'll get a hotfix out by Monday evening.


As always, you can also build these releases yourself from the public github's dev branch (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 now need to place the 'liliths-throne-public/res' folder in the same directory as the exported .jar!

v0.3.7.3 Patch Notes

  • Engine:
    • Converted WorldType enum to classes.
      Moved all Harpy Nests dialogue out into external .txt file.
      Naming artwork files with 'penis' or 'vagina' in them will now remove those images from in-game display if that character does have a penis or vagina, respectively. (e.g. An artwork image named 'npc_penis' would only be displayed in-game if the character has a penis.)
  • Gameplay:
    • Added the variation to Scarlett's content in Helena's nest for after you've completed Helena's romance quest.
      Filled in Scarlett's missing sex dialogue for if you were fucked by her vaginally or orally up in Helena's nest (prior to completing Helena's romance quest).
      You can no longer encounter NPCs in alleyways/canals/harpy nests during an arcane storm, as they all go into hiding until it's passed.
      You can now find items, clothing, and weapons in random encounters on Dominion canal tiles just like you can in alleyway tiles.
      Exploring tiles (alleyways, canals, Submission tunnels, Harpy Nest walkways, etc.) now takes 30 minutes instead of 0 minutes.
  • Other:
    • Characters now use simpler descriptions of orifice capacities when talking. (e.g. Instead of saying 'somewhat tight, wet pussy', an NPC will now say 'tight, wet pussy'.)
      NPCs are now only added to your contacts list once you discover their name (so entering Slaver Alley no longer adds 'Enforcer' to your contacts list until you talk to him and discover his name).
      Reduced chance of random characters being virgins from 10% to 5%.
      Maximum 'resting lust' is now capped at 80, so highly corrupt NPCs will no longer get stuck at 100 lust during an arcane storm, which was allowing you to instantly beat them over and over again.
      Fast-travel via flying is now restricted in most indoor areas.
      NPCs present in canal tiles now have the same 'Character lurking in this area' overview text as alleyway tiles.
      Made some slight improvements to dialogue in Harpy Nests.
      Added reference to horse and centaur-pulled carts to Dominion's boulevard descriptions.
      Scarlett's naked in-game images drawn by Jam will now correctly display the penis/vagina variations based on whether Scarlett has a penis or vagina.
      Added action in debug menu (in 'stats' tab) to give your companions 500xp.
      If Scarlett likes you, she will no longer allow random harpies to impregnate her (when she has sex with other harpies after gaining a vagina).
  • Bugs:
    • Typo, parsing, and grammatical fixes.
      Fixed parsing bug in imp tunnels.
      Fixed some parsing bugs in Helena's new content.
      Reset Loppy's age to 22, as it was accidentally set to a far higher value in a previous version.
      Fixed issue with NPCs' birth dates not matching up with the lore of all characters aging by 18 years after birth.
      Fixed issue where obedience description could reveal the gender of concealed characters.
      Fixed bug where knowing what an NPCs' ass looks like would also reveal their anus to you, even if it was still concealed by clothing.
      Fixed incorrect naming of the elixirs which spawn in imps' inventories in Submission's tunnels.
      The 'too feminine'/'too masculine' clothing status effects now display correct tooltip descriptions when applied to NPCs.
      Fixed bug where the status effect 'Broken Virgin' (lost virginity, no hymen) would be active at the same time as the 'Pure 'Virgin' (lost virginity, regrown hymen) status effect.
      The 'Sex action bypass' content setting should now work correctly. (i.e. When this setting is turned off, sex actions which would result in your character gaining corruption are disabled.)
      The 'Calming suggestion' and 'Lustful suggestion' sex actions are now correctly greyed-out when not available.
      Fixed bug where Helena would be described as not being in her nest even if she was actually there.
      Fixed throat plasticity self-transformation buttons not working.
      Fixed bug where the 'safe alleyways' description was being shown for all alleyway tiles, not just the one to the direct north of Slaver Alley.
      Fixed bug where prostitutes were 4 times more likely than other characters to spawn with the 'pure virgin' fetish, instead of the other way around.
      Fixed issue where clicking on a slav's name/race icon to view them while in their slave management screen would cause a background error to be thrown when exiting the character view screen. This was resulting in game-freezes or displaying previous encounter dialogue.
      Fixed some incorrect sex action availabilities in the face-to-wall position when there is a sze-difference between the two participants.
      Fixed bug where giving a gift to Helena would prevent you from being able to give her another gift the next time you took her out on a date.
      Fixed rare issue in Helena's 'romantic' sex scene where you'd be forced to repeat her oral scene after completing it once.
      Fixed tooltip description of your arcane attribute describing a new player's starting value of 20 as being weaker than it was when you first entered this world.
      Fixed bug where viewing an NPC's weapon would not work and throw a background error if your inventory was full.
      Fixed bug where NPCs who failed to get pregnant would have their name stuck in the pregnancy stats screen as being 'Ready for birthing'.
      Fixed bug where imp offspring could spawn in Dominion's alleyway tiles.
      Fixed issue where dirty talk during nipple kissing would make reference to the character's nipples being penetrated, even if they weren't fuckable.
      Fixed some issues with the flow and restoration of dialogue in Nyan's and Helena's gift-giving scenes.
      The TF potion which you can get Scarlett to drink on her lunch break now increases her breast size by +1/+2 cup-size, instead of to C/D-cups (as she may have already had her cup size increase via pregnancy).
      Scarlett will no longer remove clothing or start other sex actions in her fingering/handjob scene in the cafe during her lunch break, or during her 'sleepover' sex scene near the end of Helena's romance quest (to stop her from performing unintended actions).
      Fixed issue with dialogue flow in Candi's post-sex scene.
      Fixed bug in Helena's romance quest where (if you'd previously set her free) Scarlett would stay in Helena's nest after you've told her that Helena wants her.
      Fixed Scarlett's perk map not being able to be reset while she was your slave.
      Fixed related issue where unique NPCs would always have their perk maps reset to their starting values upon every game load, even if they had been legitimately modified.
      Fixed bug where changing a character's image could cause you to get stuck in their character view screen.
      Fixed bug where characters could summon a fire elemental using health even if they didn't have that ability unlocked (by knowing at least 3 fire spells).
      Added error handling for an instance of incorrectly configured clothing mods causing background errors to be thrown.

    Version 0.3.7.2 Release

    Hello again,

    As mentioned in the previous post, this version is just a small one to finish off Helena's date content and fix a few bugs. While all of Helena's content is now finished and accessible in this version, I have only had time to do a few playthroughs to test it, and so there *might* be a couple of bugs which I didn't catch.

    I also have Scarlett's content in Helena's nest left to add, as well as Natalya's follow-up content in the warehouse district, but both of these are quite small, and so I should be able to get them done for the next release. Speaking of which, I am planning on making this next update (v0.3.7.3) another small one, and besides adding the aforementioned content, I am planning on focusing on bug fixes and pull requests. I am aiming to have it released this Friday, 24th April, and it will be one final public release before I go back to the usual public-SubscribeStar cycle.

    Finally, I just wanted to say that I am aware that I ended up spending far too much time on Helena's content, and I will definitely reduce the amount of time I spend on minor side-characters in the future.

    P.S. I didn't encounter any in my testing, but if there are any serious bugs in this version, I will get them fixed as part of Friday's release, so please try to hang on until then!

    v0.3.7.2 Patch Notes

  • Gameplay:
    • Added Helena's date content. (Unlocked after completing her romance quest, and requires you to visit her in her store between 17:00-21:00 on a Friday.)
  • Other:
    • The 'Unequip all' action in the inventory overview no longer unequips weapons.
      Added 'offspring fathered' as a tattoo counter type.
      Increased the installation cost of room service from 100 to 500 flames.
      Added 'Dog Bowls' as an affection-negative, obedience-positive room upgrade counterpart to the affection-positive, obedience-negative 'Room Service'.
      The 'XML test' in the debug's parser menu now outputs a warning at the top of the parsed dialogues to let you know if any tags are being repeated.
  • Sex:
    • Orifices with the 'internally-muscled' modifier are now immune to the negative 'too loose' effect when being penetrated, no matter how slender the insertion nor how loose its capacity might be.
  • Bugs:
    • Parsing fixes.
      Fixed some grammatical errors in displacing/replacing clothing descriptions.
      Fixed bug where sealed clothing which was unsealed and removed during sex would be duplicated in the wearer's inventory when sex ended.
      Unjinxing clothing during sex will no longer return an incorrect description or just 'null'.
      Fixed fluffy tails not being described as being fluffy in character view screen.
      Fixed bug where your clothing unequipped by NPCs during sex would always cause an instance of that clothing to be removed from your inventory. (e.g. If an NPC unequipped your white bra, and you had a second white bra in your inventory, the bra in your inventory was being deleted after sex.)
      Fixed bug where clothing with a secondary or tertiary colour of 'black' would have that colour reset to the first available colour (usually white) every time your game was loaded.
      Fixed issue with player pregnancy not being able to be resolved while being Vengar's captive.
      Fixed incorrect tooltip description for 'Quick shower' in your room.

    Version 0.3.7.1 (Rough) Release

    Hello again,

    First of all, I'm once again sorry for the slow progress and buggy releases that have plagued Lilith's Throne recently. I feel as though I might have finally got through this rough patch, and so after today I'm hoping that I'll be able to go back to a more regular flow of updates.

    Unfortunately, this version still doesn't have Helena's date content completely finished, and so instead of presenting it to you in a half-finished state, the options to take her out on a date are greyed-out. You can still start and complete Helena's preliminary quest (which unlocks custom slave designing in her shop), but the dating scenes will be unavailable until the next release.

    I am planning on getting the last parts of Helena's quest finished over this week (along with some other things), and I will release another public update (v0.3.7.2) some time between Friday (17th)-Sunday (19th).

    P.S. I have not had time to thoroughly test this version, so please consider it to be a rough and potentially buggy release!

    v0.3.7.1 Patch Notes

  • Other:
    • Added support for throat capacity, elasticity, plasticity, and wetness transformations from clothing. Also added depth transformations from clothing for all orifices.
      The chance for a client to just grope your prostitute slaves has been reduced from 20% to 5%.
      Added 'offspring birthed' and 'oral deflowerments' as tattoo counter types.
      Tattoos can now be enchanted with 'major' attributes, such as physique, arcane, health, etc.
      Slime and imp spawns in Submission's tunnels are no longer affected by user preferences (as they need to spawn for story/quest reasons).
      The feathered wing transformation, which was previously exclusive to horse-morphs (to make pegasi), are now available for all non-demonic and non-angelic races. (i.e. Any normal race's TF food item can now be enchanted to give feathered back wings.)
      Arousal gains from masochist/sadist special arousal effects are now limited to 10 per attack instead of 25.
      Added minor description of centaur-pulled carts being present throughout Dominion.
  • Sex:
    • Added: Double cunnilingus support (i.e. two characters performing cunnilingus on one character at the same time).
      Fixed issue where characters in the 'kneeling oral' slots in the 'sitting' position could have sex/tribbing with one another.
      Characters sitting down in the 'sitting' position can now interact with characters sitting next to them.
      Random NPCs whose name you do not know (and therefore they do not know your name) will no longer call out your name during sex.
      In quick sex which involves multiple orgasms, characters will now regenerate 5 minutes' worth of cum regeneration between orgasms.
      Added stomach bulge text for too large penetrations inside of size queens and masochists.
  • Bugs:
    • Parsing fixes.
      Fixed issue with imp and half-demon offspring not being encountered in Submission's tunnels.
      Fixed minor bug with incorrect colour parsing in offspring birthed list.
      Fixed bug where all femininity changes would be described as being masculine, even if they made the target more feminine.
      Fixed incorrect opening times being displayed in Enforcer HQ dialogue.
      Fixed Helena's description referring to her as 'Alexa'.
      Fixed bug where penis reveal dialogue was parsing incorrectly.
      Fixed personality trait removals from the hypno watch not being described correctly.
      Tattoo counters for sub/dom sex should now correctly increment for slaves who have sex while working as a prostitute or set as public use in the stocks.
      Fixed issue where sex experience buttons in character creation wouldn't work.
      Fixed some minor issues with 'dirty talk' parsing during sex.
      Characters who are visibly pregnant will no longer be described as having their stomach bulge out when their vagina or ass is penetrated too deeply.
      Fixed bug where job recommendations you've made to friendly occupants would be reset upon loading your game.
      Fixed clothing pattern dye colours not displaying in the dye menu.
      Fixed bug where opening/closing the main menu screen while managing a room or people in Lilaya's house would return you to a previous, unrelated scene.
      NPCs in sex will no longer keep on offering you pills after you've refused them the first time.
      Fixed bug where all management options would be disabled in the scene after having sex with a slave.
      Fixed bug in combat where enemies hit by sadists would have their arousal increased, instead of the sadistic attacker.
      Basic earrings are now considered to be unisex again.

    More Progress News

    Hello again,

    I just wanted to make this quick post to let you know that the writing for Helena's romance quest should be finished by the weekend, after which I'll spend a little time fixing bugs and testing things before putting out the public release of v0.3.7.1. I'll definitely be able to have that ready by either Sunday or Monday, so I'll see you again then!

    P.S. Sorry once again for the delays leading up to this version's completion...

    Progress News

    Hello again,

    I just wanted to make this small post to keep you all updated on how things are progressing.

    All of the framework for Helena's dating scenes is already completed, so I'll be filling in the placeholders over the next few days. As soon as that's ready, I'll release v0.3.7.1 as a public release. I'm hoping to have that out relatively soon, but I'll avoid giving a fixed date so as to not disappoint anyone when I inevitably miss it. I don't want to leave you completely in the dark, however, so I'll give you a rough release estimate of some time at the end of this next week.

    After this Helena content is complete, releases should go back to being more frequent. It's when I end up adding too much dialogue that these large delays occur (as was also the case for Axel's quest), but for the next few versions there shouldn't be any risk of that occurring.

    Thank you all for your patience, and I'll make another post at the start of next week to keep you updated on how things are going.
