Progress News & Plan

Hello once again!

Since the last update, I've been working on a couple of main things for the next release. First of all, I'd promised a while ago that I'd make an expansion to Nyan's romance quest, so I've been getting a lot of that done. I've also been planning out the Fields encounters, as well as the stages of the main quest for the Fields and Elis (the town around which the next stage of the main quest will focused).

I'm going to get a preview of this next version released at the end of this upcoming week (probably on Friday or at the weekend), and then I'll finally get the public release of v0.4 released about a week or so after that. While there may be some unfinished parts in next week's preview, the public release should contain the finished version of Nyan's reworked romance quest, as well as a couple of Field encounters and the map of Elis. As usual, there will also be a few other small additions, alterations, and bug fixes.

I'll do my very best to get these next updates out on time, and I'll see you again in my next post (which will be the preview release post)!


P.S. I hope you all had a good Yule and New Year, and I wish you all the best for the year ahead.

    1. Before or after the new wave of radio silence? Innoxia's about me on the website has never been changed and we are long past the 7-10 day updates. Personally, even a status post of "having issues, so it's delayed" is nice. While not ideal at least we know it's still being worked on and etc..

      Delete
    2. I'm beginning to doubt that 'being worked on' part is true. There has been no evidence to support Inno having worked on 0.4 at all and, in fact, there's an outright admittance to the opposite.

      Delete
    3. Of course not. Innoxia has abandoned this project insofar as he actually develops for it. Look at all the previous updates, the vast majority of it is all accepting github pull-requests from other developers working on it. That's been the M.O for the entire last year is just sit around waiting and saying "Still in progress! Keep paying me!" until there's enough of a PR set to make it seem like work was done

      Delete
    4. Abandoned and a lack of focus are two very different things. In no way is Inno trying to milk us and in no way has this been abandoned, Inno just lacks focus. What Inno needs to do is put their foot down against their patrons and say no more will be done by request until the main story advances to the next stage. The other stuff can wait, it's not like any of it will just disappear by being put off until more important things are done. The same goes for the race rework.

  7. Wow. Just now entering the planning phase for Fields content? So in all this time since 0.4 was announced Inno hasn't even bothered to write a basic outline for the story. I'm not even mad at this point, just disappointed.

    1. A lot of people asked for romance quests and more races and stuff so Inno had to work on that before continuing the main story

    2. I suspect more people asked for continuation of main story

  8. Glad to hear; hoping the race mods and what have you can really get going now as well as story, more dialog/ action loop variations to make the actual sex a bit more interesting, and ideally some file size reductions for saves.
    Also manticore and mink girls. Maybe some slutty feral dire wolves.

    1. Let's try to get Inno to focus on the story, get that done, or at least significantly advance, and *then* get the bells and whistles in order. So far,
      Inno has added a lot of bells and whistles, but the story isn't even past the first act, and all this, "Hey, Inno! Add [race/feature/fluff]!" shit is what's been pushing 0.4 back further and further.

      Delete
    2. To be fair the racial components listed can be easily handled by mods which was the whole point really. Additional random prompts during sex could also in theory be handled by modding. The file size of saves is going to be a major issue moving forward though so one way or another that'll need to be addressed at some point.

      Delete
  9. Fricking hell... how many posts do we have at this pointing annoucing the next release as the 0.4 version? It's always "just a few more things", "had a few issues that caused a delay but its close now...". We've been stuck in this little song and dance for months now...

    Like, I understand crap happens... the race framework took its time and then there was Christmas/New Year's Eve - everyone takes a break during this time of the year and this was no different. I just figured you'd be tired of promising things you can't deliver because you keep moving the goalpost at the last minute, which causes delays, and then have to apologize (in almost every post) because of it...

    I think you're better off only mentioning the actual 0.4 version on the day it releases.

  14. Great to see that after talking about nothing apart from the race framework and main story content, we find out that Innoxia has mainly been working on more romance side quest stuff and has waited until past the time when 4.0 was supposed to come out to even mention it at all. I was actually feeling pretty optimistic about the state of the upcoming update when they said that the race framework was finally done, but I guess I should know better by now.

  18. Nice to hear from Inno again. Nice to hear that she's working towards Foloi Fields content. If she gets the main story to Elis, I'll even renew my subscription. So, here's hoping that this is the point where the game's development begins to take on a forward direction.
    Got to say though, working on expanded Nyan content doesn't fill me with confidence. Not that I think it a bad idea in and of itself - lesser catgirls being one of my favorite morphs - but why now? I smell another massive delay on the horizon. Exactly the same as the delay caused by every other sidequest.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hey now, I wouldn't call it massive. My money is sometime around the 2022 holiday season. That should give Inno enough time to complete the sidequest, the framework for beginning the Fields content, and maybe even a new item of clothing or two.

      Delete
    2. I'm gonna say December 2030 at the earliest. There WILL be a delay or three, then more side quests with even more delays, then we finally get to the fields after every other character already in the game has had their turn at a rework with the inevitable accompanying delays.

      Delete
  19. Good chance to get yourself back on track. New year, clean slate. Go get em.

  20. This is beyond a joke at this point, just finish the fucking fields content before going off on more sidequest bullshit you incompetent douche.

  23. I've never commented on these updates before, because usually I feel you get enough people raging already, so checking the comments is probably more stressful than it is helpful. I don't know if there's a way to delete comments from a blog, but maybe some moderation is in order? I get a lot of you being extremely angry, but being an asshole in this situation is not justified. I think we have all forgotten last year had been tough for everybody. Who knows what Innoxia has been going through, heck she might have even lost some relatives and family members last year. I don't know, I can't really find anything anywhere of Innoxia talking about their personal life, so I'm not going to make any assumptions. But I do know this year has been extremely tough for me, and I don't have a cesspool of a comment section to look at everyday, as well as the development of a game on my shoulders, so I'm not going to judge and hate on Innoxia for something I don't understand. Yeah, I am upset, but is cussing out Innoxia going to do anything to get me what I want? No. Again, I understand everyone is upset, but being toxic is just going to slow Innoxia down, and quite frankly, will probably stop them from posting updates as frequently as possible.

    As for you Innoxia, what we need is more transparency and consistency. In the last few updates we were told you were working on v0.4. Two weeks later, you are now telling us you've actually been working on a romance quest, which will actually be done before v0.4 is fully out. I'm all for working on what you think is more important or best to do first, but after a few updates of being told time and time again that you've been working on v0.4 it's beginning to be disappointing. Me personally, I was never interested in Nyan, and I haven't read much about people asking for an update on her romance quest either, but I don't know, maybe I'm just not reading discord and github enough. Anything else on that situation I'll go to github for since it involves content, but please Innoxia, try to update more and don't be afraid to get somebody to moderate comments for you. Because when you have a bunch of people telling you how bad you're doing it doesn't help your productivity or motivation.

    1. The fact that she’s apparently been working on a Nyan focused side quest is what’s really pissing me off, like, seriously? A romance side quest is really more relevant than actual content that would meaningfully shake up gameplay? Alright.

      At the rate we’re going, I’m expecting 0.4 in, best case scenario, March. But that’s being very optimistic, if I’m being honest.

    3. It’s not coddling, just constructive criticism. But if you want to be an asshole I guess it’s your right to be one. I’m just saying that being a toxic prick doesn’t solve anything.

      Delete
    4. @Ravenlobster Yes, that is what I am most frustrated about. Apparently people have been asking for this, but I don't know. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't seen any talks of wanting the Nyan romance quest finished recently. Not to mention I feel a little excluded in that regard due to the lack of male romance options. I am a straight woman, and although I do like my fair share of lesbian romances, and I do play male characters now and then, it's great to have a male romance option. Though, I'm sure the current options or more based on Innoxia's personal preference and popular demand, so I'm not judging. Unless people are talking about the Nyan romance quest in the SubscribeStar, which I'm not a contributor, so I don't have access to it, I haven't seen much talk about it. Maybe I'll search the Discord.

      It's just frustrating because we have been waiting months, and it's like every time we get an update, apparently there is something else in the works that a lot of people have asked for that I haven't heard of. Granted, I've been in college this whole time, so I haven't been looking at the Discord or GitHub frequently. But, it would be great if these things were communicated before we were so close to the promised deadline, like why was this not mentioned in the last update? Or in a sooner update? Or months ago? We were told v0.4 was a priority, but it doesn't seem like it was. I guess we'll just have to see how much of what was promised is going to be in the preview and full v0.4 update.

      Also, your comment is a great example of what I mean when people don't need to be toxic when expressing their frustration.

    5. @Anon from 12 Jan - 17:05
      Its not just you. I used to be more active between here and Discord (not so much now) so I'm in the same boat as you, as in, I don't know where this desire to rework Nyan suddendly came from (but it is bafffling at this point and stage of development). My guess is that Inno is easily swayed by whatever "popular demand" is raging on Discord. Its the most plausible explanation I can think of. But whatever "flavour of the month" is going on over there, IMO progress should take priority as that is the most common thing people have asked for, for ages, and gone without.

      I mean, she has been telling us the next version is going to be the "de facto" 0.4 release for months, but something always gets in the way - some mechanic gets revamped, something is added but its broken initially and needs to be repaired (which leads to delays), then there's life and other stuff (the unavoidable), etc.

      From what I can remember of Discord, people were always joking and memeing about one character or another, Nyan and that Dom maid (forget her name) being the most popular ones. Nyan is basically the "waifu" of the game, whereas the Dom maid is the game's biggest love/hate sort of character. What's next? Is the maid going to get revamped as well? Are we ever going to get out of this endless cycle? I can understand when bad things happen in your life that you can't avoid, but this has been going on for a long time now...

    6. Yeah, no. You people are 100% coddling and defending an inexcusable lack of progress. Per Ino's subscribestar,

      "$2,500
      THE GOAL
      REACHED!
      Financial security, allowing me to treat development of Lilith's Throne as a full-time job.

      There is literally no world in which the sheer lack of any real progress for months on end while working on something as a full time job would be considered acceptable. She would have been fired long ago if this was an actual job. If Ino has any shred of dignity they would stop the borderline robbery of their subscribers money and stop collecting payments until they can show a consist and real level of actual monthly progress.

    7. I’m not defending it. I’m just saying don’t be toxic. I’ve provided several paragraphs of criticism and I’ve expressed my disappointment all without resorting to cussing or name calling. If you’re too upset with that, that’s your problem. I mean, if it bothers you so much it clearly applies to you.

      Delete
    8. By that same logic if you are bothered by the toxicity isn't that YOUR problem?

      Delete
    9. @Pope of the Church of Vrelnir No, because anybody who has ever criticized a piece of work on a professional level, or actually truly cares about a piece of work and it's creator, knows how to constructively criticize something, and being toxic isn't included in that. It's not just my problem, because anybody who is a decent human being knows you can rant your frustration about something without being toxic. Again, if you don't cuss and call somebody names when criticizing something they've created, I'm not talking about you. Everybody knows there is a right and wrong way to act, and being toxic is not the right way. It puts people down, and it makes them less likely to continue doing what they love. It also creates an environment that nobody wants to be a part of. You have every right to criticize Innoxia, and if that includes cussing, name calling and threats, yes, you have that right. It still doesn't make you any less of an asshole though. It's the same thing with every main stream game, everybody agrees the toxic behavior needs to stop, but nobody every wants to say anything about it because they just don't want to deal with it. Toxic people are usually exhaustive and relentless in their defense of their behavior, and an argument with one can last for days on end. Toxicity is an overall problem that can be found in every community, anywhere. It ruins friendships, it causes mental illnesses, it hurts people. I could go on and on about toxicity, but that's a whole other discussion that I won't continue because this comment is already long enough. There's nothing you can do to defend toxicity, because it literally does nothing to help any situation.

    10. @Anon above: Bruh, the point is.. Your problem isn't everyone else's problem. You don't have anything else to do other than police language not even directed at you, in the comments section of a blog the dev doesn't even check, made by anonymous people you will never even meet? Jesus christ, just stop reading it all.

    11. @Anon above: That’s what the internet is. People are assholes, and then there are those whole police those assholes’ behavior. I’m not defending the Anon, I’m just saying, you’re fighting a losing battle. Both of you are the two different sides of the same coin, and you both are still little keyboard warriors who need to get over yourselves and realize there’s no point in arguing in the comment section of a blog for a fucking porn game. Because whether or not this game gets finished, the world isn’t going to end because of it, and your interactions with each other will mean nothing. So, I’m going to not waste anymore energy on this than I already have, and advise you two do the same as well.

At this point it is quite clear you are just milking the last few dollars you can out of your subscribers before everyone jumps ship, there is absolutely no evidence you have accomplished any meaningful work on 0.4, i think you've worked yourself into a corner where you cannot figure out how to make the game work and so you're floundering about, aware of the fact that you're about to lose one of your income streams. This game is dead in the water.

    1. The frustrating thing is that you are clearly wrong.

      Foloi Fields content would be no more difficult to create than the random encounters in Dominion and Submission. And it's pretty clear that Inno has at least a general idea of what the Elis stage of the main story will involve.

      So this isn't like so many other smut games where the dev(s) obviously had a lot of enthusiasm for the premise, but little to no idea where the thing is ultimately going.

      Which of course makes it all the more frustrating that Inno has apparently learned nothing from the total derail the Patreon sidequests caused to the project.

      Delete
    2. @Carl0s Danger Precisely! The game is clearly capable of being finished, and making progress towards that wouldn’t take any more effort than continuing to develop a pointless side quest which, it bears repeating, isn’t even new content, it’s just a rework of existing content.

      This game is already one of the best lewd games I’ve ever played, which is why it pisses me off so much that Innoxia just... continues to do fuck all for literally no reason instead of continuing the damn thing.

  30. Oh yeah, I just kinda glossed over the fact that the update that's supposedly been worked toward for like, most of a fucking year, is going to be more side bullshit that was already done before, and just a few encounters. The development cycle for this is a bad joke. Aside for some minor features that do very little except for bloat the game, I legit can't think of much that's changed in the couple years I've been following along with development.

  31. Don't release 4.0. Keep making blog posts apologizing the lack of updates indefinitely. Your supporters will never even notice.

  32. Sorry I'm late to the party, wasn't the point of 0.4 to get the Fields content out, which then had the race rework added on, which now now has a rework/extension to a romance questline added on as well?
    This seems like an especially-egregious case of feature creep.

    1. Actually, yes, the original plan was to release the fields, then the race rework was supposed to replace the fields in 0.4 entirely with the fields being pushed back, then people got understandably angry and the fields were parttially reinstated as 0.4 content.

  36. Inno, you should focus on getting the main story done, rather than all of these added features. Bells and whistles are nice, but without more places to go and things to do, all these extra races and mechanics get stale because they add nothing unless you have something to *do* with them. You can't have your pudding if you don't eat your meat, because your pudding won't keep you full as long as your meat will, if that makes sense.

  43. So, do people actually care about the main quest at all? Like, I've been thinking about this since the release and I seriously wonder. It really seems like the sandbox game play is the core loop of the game, and the main quest for the most part just seems to be a means of delivering the various sandbox features people might want. There really isn't any meaningful character or story development for me to give a shit about. All of the quests seem disconnected from each other, and mostly just seem like side quests meant to unlock shit for the sandbox. The super heavy focus on trying to advance the main quest into a new area that's probably not going to be fleshed out in the slightest seems odd to me if we're not going to get some real story. And if it's supposed to just keep advancing the sandbox side of the game, it could use some love.

    If it were me, I'd probably rethink how I'm approaching the main story. Having each update be it's own isolated little thing with very little meaningful, long term development between them seems like a terrible long term goal. If the intent is to make this a story based game, I'm really worried about how this is going.

    And honestly, with how badly handled the Helena/Scarlett stuff was, I'm kind of dreading what's going to happen to Nyan. Even now, some of it honestly just feels unfinished and not thought out. Like, there's a lot of really simple cases that aren't addressed even if a single paragraph could have tied it all together. Or simple checks to skip dialog/options. The obvious example, if the player already transformed Scarlett with the exact same transformations you're going to offer the player, just don't make the offer. And don't just revert any changes made while she was transformed, a simple paragraph about how her sister made Helena revert the changes would have tied everything together. Instead she just kind of, shows up with any actions the player took (both physically and behaviorally) undone and it's never addressed. I kind of hope that when the constant MSQ push comes to an end shit like that gets looked at again, because having gone through those story lines again it's really just quiet stupid.

    And while I'm ranting, I'd still kill for some inventory improvements. Just rip off Terraria and allow us to favorite items so you can add a sell all button, at the very least.

    Okay, that's enough ranting for one patch. See you in 6 months.

    1. Literally everyone is hating on Inno for not expanding on the main quest?

    2. Not literally everyone (some people seem completely okay with wandering aimlessly around Dominion indulging in their personal kinks), and you'd have to be absurdly sensitive to call all of it "hate".

      Development of the main quest has been stalled for well over a year. Remember, this game is not supposed to be an aimless, kinky sandbox. It's supposed to be an RPG. That's how it has been presented since it was first announced and how it is still presented today. The current game is nothing more than the tutorial stage for the game that has been promised.

      The latest delay was supposed to take a couple of weeks while Inno altered the way the game handles races (basically, to allow multiple kinds of lower bodies). It took three months. Apparently one of the things that she found really tricky was making sure that a character with the lower body of a spider could be fucked in the spinneret.

      This was the point where I ceased financially supporting this game.

      One thing a lot of people new to this game don't seem to understand is that Inno has made a commitment to her Subscribers (which I used to be) to treat the development of this game as her full-time job. And she is just not doing that. She's not. It's the difference between someone being late to a meeting because they got caught in traffic and someone being late because they chose to go and do their grocery shopping instead of going to the meeting they promised they'd be at.

      And in addition to this, she's not clearly communicating why she's making these bizarre decisions.

      Why was it so important to make sure spider-taurs had fuckable spinnerets? Inno's never said.

      Why is the expanded Nyan content being worked on instead of forward progress? Not really explained beyond the allegation that some people say they want it.

      Which people? Not explained.

      Why does these people's interest in one NPC outweigh what seems to be a more general interest in seeing Inno make the actual game she promised to make? Not explained.

      So currently, we're all awaiting Inno's next communique profusely apologizing for how long the Nyan content is taking and how something unexpected came up while she was adding this content and it was more difficult that she originally thought ...

      Does this explain a little of the irritation that people are expressing?

    4. Nope.
      I think people are just stupid. Plain and simple. You're all letting the uniqueness and variation of the game overweigh basic expectation of what a game should fulfill. Instead of retaining control over consumer demand versus developer's supply, you all just simply threw the balance out the window in favor of a few tasty doggie treats thrown out every so often. Inno pretty much has a hold over all of you, because none of you are capable of just walking away. I like to come back here and read the reactions, because it's honestly just funny. It's like watching a bunch of drug addicts beat each other over the head out of withdrawal symptoms and only calm down once the occasional pill or needle makes it around the trap house to calm your urge for a couple of weeks. Then, it's back to clawing each others' eyes out until Inno eases your Stockholm Syndromes once more.

    5. Sorry, by the way, post above isn't OP. I'm just chiming in. :)

    6. A lot of the people who care about the main quest have probably moved on by now. If Inno wants them to come back then main quest progress needs to be made. Otherwise, make some sort of announcement that it is a sandbox rpg rather than a linear one because most assume by rpg that it means a story.

    7. Yes, actually, people do care or we wouldn't be harping on Inno for going back on thee original plan of releasing the fields in 0.4. What we're actually getting isn't what was originally planned, but at least we're getting fields content on the release it has been scheduled for since the plan was publicly laid out. The plan that got changed to what it is now meant putting off the fields entirely for at least one version more than originally planned, but a whole bunch of people didn't like that Inno was going back on what was planned originally, so it got changed to some of the content being included as a sort of middle ground. I still don't like it, but it isn't likely Inno will give up and just go with the original '0.4 = fields' plan.

      As far as the main story, that would be the fight against Brax, getting Arthur back, the fight against Meraxis and her gang, and Lyssieth giving you the ability to resist Lilith and the option to transform into a demon. Next is the fields, where we will be chasing after that Fox-girl that was with Meraxis when we fought her. I'm not sure of any details after that, those were just the leftovers from the story while in Dominion and Submission.

      @Carl0s I'm actually one of those okay with just wandering around, but not when there are plans otherwise. For me, it's more about Inno needing to finish what has been started or call it quits officially. Make a decision and stick to it. Either continue the story as planned or drop the game entirely as it is now, there is no more option to drop the story, that went away the second the plan was made public.

      You're right, the race additions like spinneret penetration were completely unnecessary at this point. We're not even dealing with races with those features yet. Inno should have saved all that for when it actually came up. I mean, seriously, when are we expected to come across a spider-morph? Isn't that a jungle race according to Inno's plan? If so, guess what, it could have been held off until the fields were done because the jungle is the third area, one we are not going into any time soon.

    8. Actually I can kind of understand why Inno decided to work on the race framekwork so early. It allows modders to create race-related content which, if good enough, can later be merged unto the game.

      It is not the first time LT receives submissions and contributions made by the community (these tend to be mentioned in the changelog as well). In a way, mods are a way to expand the game without forcing the developer to reach out or hiring a team for this purpose (or simply having to do it all by herself). The problem is that needs an active and interested community, willing to do the leg work themselves pro-bono.

      That being said, however useful it may be, the timing for it couldn't be worse. People have been waiting for the Fields for several months now and it has been one continuous train of waiting and disapointment, with one thing showing up after another, and another, always delaying that goddamn 0.4 release.

    9. "fuck everything with your spinneret ovipositor futananri cock tentacle tits" is the worst part of this game and, after inno spent 3 months refactoring fucking race code, is clearly dragging the game down. You can get all of that shit in a fenoxo game, and its 100x better because the scenes are handwritten and not reliant on bad sex ai. If inno wanted this game to be good, she would focus on the strengths (sandbox elements) instead of chasing after the desperate who will pay any money to get their extremely specific fetishes fulfilled

    10. @Ivory Even hiring a team or passing the races off to modders won't solve the main issue, which is the lack of focus Inno has. They need to focus on the more important aspect, the main story, and they also need to start doing as they say they will. Inno specifically said they will stop with the side quest content until the main story has made progress, it has not and here we are with more side quest content, yes, romance quests count as side quests in relation to the main story.

  44. Amazing. You haven't even PLANNED OUT the encounters for fields and elis and the fucking 0.4 update was promised half a year ago.
    You're a fucking embarrassment. Stop jerking everyone around.

    1. At this point I'm half convinced That Inno low-key hates the story she's written, and is grasping at straws to avoid touching it ever again.

    2. Wouldn't surprise me. Inno seems to hold the idea of actually getting on with the game in utter contempt. That or never anticipated having to actually nut up and deliver that she never even prepared for 0.4 to release.

  45. Not sure if it's a bug but the Imp squads in the sewers, they all comment at the same time "WOW I DIDN'T KNOW YOU HAD A COCK BRO" as if they've never known each other. Are there plans to maybe touch up the dialog or add some more variety? Or at least make it so people who probably know each other (and rape together) know what genitals their teammates have?

    2. It's been like that forever with basically all NPCs. Even the story NPCs are like that.

      Considering there's already known/unknown tracking for stuff like this, it's a bit stupid that there's not just a basic check to see if that line should be said or not. The sandbox side of the game needs some loving after the fields is out. But I'm 99% sure we're going to get a half ass fields release and then we'll spend four months filling in most, but not all, of the content that should have been there.

  47. Hey I have recently played the game for a bit, and I want to ask if there any option to free slaves. So far the only option is to disenchant and remove the collars, but it does not fully remove the occupation status from their perk trees. The last time someone has brought it up according to web search results is like 2018, so I'm unsure what to do here unless I look at the code???

    1. There is no option that I am aware of to free slaves. You can increase their Affection to the point where they really like being your slave, but you can't free them.

      Delete
    2. That'd be an interesting thing. It'd be interesting to have a way to free them, and then have them either leave, stay as a guest, or ask to stay as a slave depending on traits and stats.

      It's also too bad there's no way to voluntarily enslave or choose to employee people.

  48. "I'm going to get a preview of this next version released at the end of this upcoming week" Sweet, see you guys in two months!

  49. Okay, now I'm officially ticked at all this. You specifically said you would stop all this side quest nonsense until the main story updates were out, then you go back on your word and rework a perfectly good romance quest instead of the already heavily delayed fields. Nyan can wait, get the fields out.
