Degrees of Lewdity version 0.5.0.6

This update focuses on improving the sky. That is, it fleshes out the great hawk, making them fertile and considerably expanding the content at their tower. It also adds a new renderer for sky, weather and location images, overhauls temperature mechanics, and adds new events around the world, many revolving around temperature.


The tower looming from the moor now assumes the dread aspect that was always intended. Though the PC sees it from a unique perspective, beneath the wing of the terror itself. The PC can now accompany the great hawk on hunts, learning more about its lifestyle, and the fierce politics of the skies. Loot acquired from hunting can be used to improve the tower, which might come in handy if the great hawk lays eggs, or gives the PC eggs to lay.


Weather, sky and location images in the sidebar now dynamically render. Water will reflect, and the sun and moon will move across the sky in real (in-game) time, among many other improvements, including new art for numerous locations. Huge thanks to Xao, whose code wizardry is responsible.

Body temperature now has more impact, and has been threaded through the game much more thoroughly than before, with new scenes attached. Mechanics that give the player more to track need to be handled with care, which is partly why temperature had little impact in the past. However, the system is more transparent than before, with a visible temperature gauge accompanying the sidebar sprite to indicate whether temperature is rising or falling. There’s also an icon to indicate whether the PC is indoors or outdoors. The impact of clothing has been rebalanced as well, and should feel altogether more authentic. Let us know what you think!


Apologies for 0.5 not being the combat overhaul as I originally planned. I decided to bring the version change forward, as this update signifies the shift to a new content arc, and is also very chunky in its own right. Avery’s manor and related content is still coming, part of the aforementioned arc.


Huge thanks to PurityGuy for managing the Git, and putting together the changelog for this update. As you can see, he’s done a much better job than I usually do organising it! Several fixes were for specific Git issues, which have been linked to.


Thank you everyone! I hope you enjoy it.

- Great Hawk expansion + pregnancy, by PurityGuy.

WEATHER AND SKY OVERHAUL, BY XAO:
New Sky & Location Sidebar Renderer
  Introduced a new canvas renderer for the sidebar, which dynamically renders sky and location images based on weather changes.
  The renderer simulates the sky based on the time of day, weather, and other factors.
Changes:
- New sky renderer. Thanks to Mochi, Beta, void and Jacko for sprites used in new weather generation.
- New location renderer. Thanks to SoS, mochi, mochamante, glenn, and Jacko for some new location sprites.
- All weather types, time of day, and locations are simulated in the sky sidebar.
- Enhanced visuals for nearly all game locations in the sidebar.
- Location images are illuminated by the sun during the day and darken at night.
- Added water reflections and animated water effects, toggleable in the options menu.
- Added support for multiple independent animations for a single location image.
- Updated several older location images to new ones.
- Some location images now feature lights during nighttime.
- Extensive changes behind the scenes to how location images are created and rendered.

New Weather & Temperature Simulation
  The temperature system has been vastly improved, simulating weather more realistically.
  There are also different temperature values outdoors, indoors, and in water. Weather and temperature are generated several weeks in advance.
Changes:
- New weather generation.
- New temperature generation.
- As expected, outdoor temperatures will be lower during winter, and higher during summer, and can vary during the day.
- Extreme temperatures, both low and high, can occur depending on the season.
- Precipitation (rain or snow) now depends on the actual temperature; it only snows when temperatures are below freezing.
- Precipitation intensity can vary based on the weather, affecting how quickly one becomes wet in the rain.
- It now always gets cloudy or overcast before it starts to rain or snow. It never goes immediately from sunny weather to rain or snow.
- Snow melts only when the temperature is above freezing.
- Introduced several new weather types with realistic transitions.
- Lakes and fountains freeze only in freezing temperatures, with ice strength varying with temperature changes.
- Numerous event adjustments to incorporate weather changes.
- The moon now has different phases, depending on the day, which is also visible in the sidebar.

Body Temperature
  Body temperature is now simulated. Body heat is gained or lost over time based on the air temperature.
  It is divided into heat generation, and heat dissipation.
  Heat generation occurs passively and increases with physical activity or extreme external heat.
  Heat dissipation is reduced by wearing thicker or more clothing and increases when wet.
Changes:
- New body temperature system
- New potential for hypothermia and heatstroke:
- Wearing too little clothing during cold weather could lead to hypothermia, if exposed long enough. Reduce the risk by wearing appropriate clothing or seeking shelter indoors.
- Wearing excessive clothing in extremely hot weather can lead to heatstroke, especially while doing physical activity.
- Several new scenes related to passing out from hypothermia or heatstroke. (written by Danie, Angel, mochamante, Anonymous Jackalope, Kirsty, coded by Kirsty)
- Being overly cold or hot now results in significant status effects.
- Added a body heat indicator (thermometer) in the sidebar, changing color based on body temperature and showing temperature trends towards or away from ideal levels.

Clothing Warmth
- Completely overhauled clothing warmth values. All clothing items have been rebalanced.
- Clothing warmth now depends on the type; for instance, socks provide significantly less warmth compared to upper and lower clothing, compared to before.
- Clothing impact during weather conditions is more pronounced: essential in cold weather and potentially risky in hot weather.
- Several user interface updates related to clothing warmth in shops and wardrobes.
- The wardrobe warmth indicator now displays relative warmth compared to the external temperature.

Tanning
- Introduced variable sun intensity based on season, time of day, location, and cloud cover.
- Tanning effectiveness is now dependent on sun intensity. If it's too low, tanning will not be effective.
- Tanning in the tanning salon usually will be more effective than tanning outside most of the year. Except for the summer, when the outside sun intensity is high.
- Improved the tanning user interface, explaining factors that increase or decrease tanning effectiveness.

Wetness
- Increased heat dissipation when wet, making you colder faster.

Other
- Added an icon indicating whether you are indoors or outdoors.
- Money display now shows decimals only for amounts less than 10k.
- Added tooltips to the weather sidebar for outside weather and temperature details.
- Added tooltips to the character sidebar for player clothing information.
- Introduced a thermometer icon next to the character sidebar with tooltips about body temperature.

  4. I really hope this new content arc puts a lot less focus on love interests, I swear 90% of every new update is just Whitney or Robin crap and it really bums me out to see the game become a dating sim while stuff like the crypt, islands, etc. are left barebones while more barebone areas get piled on.

    1. Fym “left” barebones lmao, the island was a relatively new addition, and a lot of things are yet to be developed. I agree that the tone of DoL should be grim, but contributors writing some scenes for LIs is in no way mutually exclusive to the PC’s marginalised role in DoLTown and the traumatic aspects. Wait for the game to develop or start contributing the content you want if you want to see different things.

  7. It's awesome that Great Hawk got such a massive expansion with this update. Can't wait to explore all of that, and I'm curious about the 17:00 daily Robin event

    1. Wren vs Whitney on fist fight only, no guns, no friends, only the two of them who is the winner?

    2. If Bailey accepted adoption of orphans and PC got adopted by a couple from another country who planned to take PC to with them far away and PC told the LIs what would they do? (All of them at high love +dating, especially Whitney)
    2.1. On prev question, would Whitney snap into abduction?
    2.2. What would Whitney do if they saw PC on the adopting couple's car taking PC away? Chase it? Make their friends to stop the car?

    3. School LIs (high love +dating) reaction/feelings on a school concert where PC is the singer of their band and the music lyrics is about how much PC loves them and stares at them smiling

    4. My PC is currently dating Whitney and pure Sydney both at high love, but I made the rite of promise with Syd, if Whitney found out about it and what means what would they do? Would Whitney be jealous or possessive?

  12. As i saw it, this update is amazing, thanks to everyone for doing it possible. Now, i have a few questions:
    1. I saw before there would be new content for the science class and for Sirris, would that mean they could keep us in their house or in check in someway to keep the track of the pregnancy (for science)?
    2. Would there be future content for the Kylar's manor or their family?
    3. I saw the city everything goes in didn't have a celebration for its inauguration, is there something planned about that?

    Regarless of the answers, thank you for your time and for the epic work

    I've not often interacted with the hawk, so such a large update is sure to give me a reason to do so.
    I wasn't aware of a combat update in the making, I am quite excited for that; major game-play changes are always the most exciting in my opinion.

  21. Good morning, good evening, good afternoon, I came here to ask some questions and clear up some doubts.
    At the end of last Christmas I was almost reaching day 190 so I was trying to get as many achievements as possible in a single run, until that Christmas update arrived and the condom machine at the brothel bugged and I took a break and when I started playing again I lost a little bit of desire, I tried to start a new game and remembered how long it had taken me to get everything I managed to get to where I got to in the last save, and during my walk I ended up thinking, I know it "takes so long" to get there achieving some things is part of the fact that the game isn't complete yet and that presents a challenge, but it's been almost 30 days and I'm still halfway through the Kylar's house quest to gain her parents' trust, but anyway The issue is that a lot of things in Degress of Lewdity are based on pure farming, so much so that Alex's farm is practically a repetition of the same things for almost 5 weeks in the game, and with the threats and unforeseen events that appear in the middle every now and then, causing problems loading, makes the gameplay time extend a lot, making you spend hours on the same thing just to be able to unlock a few lines of dialogue.
    My point is, it's seriously interesting to add a "speed run" mode, a "reduced" mode, I don't know exactly how to express myself, perhaps it could even be considered an "easy" mode, but in some way I could rethink this tedious farm and make it more fluid and things happen more frequently, but I wanted to know what the creator's vision was in relation to this

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I second this! It does get a bit repetitive after awhile.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for your thoughts. The hope is that taking on multiple different activities, and handling the varied threats tied to them, will keep things interesting over an extended period. A character who goes to school, visits Kylar's parents, then works at the strip club in the evening will have a different experience, and develop differently, to one who sleeps during the day and steals at night. It ties in with the time management mechanics, balancing danger against Bailey's increasing demands, and the creeping corruption of the world.

      There's lots of room for improvement. I've always thought the cheat menu would help players accelerate content if they wished, but the farm and other areas still lack important options. The farmlands can be particularly troublesome compared to town as the latter lets you pick and choose from a large number of different options on a given day, but Alex's farm requires a lot of investment. The fact that Alex contributes to farmwork helps, but not enough. More locations in the farmlands could help.

      Sliders to control the rate various stats change could be warranted. I'll consider it.

      Delete
    3. This would be very good, we can select the value of some objectives for example, instead of getting 100 love with that npc, we can change it to a lower value if the player doesn't want to invest a lot of time in that Quest or npc, I understand that this affects the main focus of the game which is time management, but I swear I can't stand spending more than 7 weeks doing the same things at Kylar's house to gain my parents' trust, it would be good if we could reduce this, or as said, an "easy mode" even more than the "cheat mode" Help a lot, there's a lot of content that the cheat mode itself doesn't even cover. Thank you for being attentive to the public and perhaps the text above was confusing because I used a translator... anyway, thanks again

  22. Vrel, there's a bug in the school.

      My character is a girl, after swimming class I obviously go to the girls locker room.

Goin to the boys locker room gets me kicked out too because the game says my character is a girl

  25. Congratulations! I'm delighted to see that you have completed your monthly update plan. Though it's almost. To be honest, I can personally not like to plan anything for myself at all! So in my opinion, this has been a success. More than that, this is an update that brings so many refreshing changes that I can feel the bright potential of the future, especially about the sky. You and the team and contributors have done a great job, thanks a lot and have a good rest <3
    One thing I'm curious about though, I've noticed you mentioning several times that you enjoy keeping up with regular updates. I also got the impression from the experience you shared previously about your personal time management, it seems like you prefer to do things in an organised and planned manner, which is truly admirable. I'm wondering, do you consider yourself inclined towards being systematic and organised? I'm not sure if you are familiar with the concept of the Big Five personality traits, similar to the "conscientiousness" dimension—a tendency to be responsible and orderly. Of course, it's a personal thing, so feel free to skip this topic if you find it inconvenient to discuss!
    Sorry, understanding typology and observing people's personalities is a small hobby of mine, but judging someone's type without their consent is indeed offensive (having said that, I still enjoy quietly observing).
    I will say that I appreciate your sense of boundaries, how you approach the interaction of the individual with the external environment, and the way you handle personal affairs and interpersonal interactions. Along with your continued dedication to DoL and the community over the years (which was already glimpsed on the Q&A about your time management experience), that's something I admire as well.
    Sometimes I feel that routine greetings and compliments have become so programmed that they no longer seem sincere, not to mention the fact that you always carve out time to respond to them, which seems to add even more to your workload. But to leave them out seems like an absence, which can be really hard to know how to deal with. Anyway, thank you for your unfailing patience and kindness, and I will say that all of the above is from the bottom of my heart.

    2. Thank you! We have PurityGuy and the contributors to thank for the plan working out so well.

      I indeed prefer things to do things in an organised manner, though it's complicated, and many aspects of my approach are quite chaotic. So it's hard to say! I only loosely know about the Big Five personality traits, but don't mind people speculating about me.

      I'm glad you like the visual improvements. Xao and the contributors did amazing work. There's a feeling rain gives me in real life that the game now captures, which astonished me.

      Thank you for the kind words! Compliments always feel sincere to me. It's easy to remain dedicated to the project with the support of a community like this.

  28. I love this update already because I like to sometimes roleplay the characters that I make. So this update really helps the immersion! But I got a couple questions. (also sorry to give you another questionnaire)

    1. In the next few updates, will there be a separate clothing option? What I mean by that is that we got tops, bottoms, under tops, and under bottoms. But will we get over tops? Like we have jackets, hoodies, and cardigans but those outfits removes my current tops. Personally I would like to wear a cardigan with an other top but also wear an under top, but this current option isn't possible unless my under top is a camisole or undershirt which kind of removes that immersion a bit.

    2. Will there be school clubs or other activities like a school gym in the next future updates? Honestly, there's a lack of school content, which is okay, but also its one of the main focuses for love interest and appropriate school performance skill checks (i.e. science for pain resist and math for money increase). I know we have seasonal events like the science fair and stage play but we kind of don't really have to go to school besides those points which makes me sad.

    3. Why can't I wear a bullet vibe in public? I think it would be cool if we could wear a bullet vibe to constantly increase arousal. :)

    4. Is there any forgotten content or obscure content that you would like to add into the game? Personally, I've been waiting for the Avery content and manor since last year. So when I read that this content is coming soon it makes me excited. Also I just want to know what you would like to put in the game too.

    -That's all the questions I have currently. Thank you and your team for updating the game and I wish the best for you guys. Also I appreciate it if you did replied back and if you didn't reply back, I still appreciate you. :)

    2. That's great to hear! There's no need to apologise.

      1. Over clothes are coded into the game already, and have been for a while, but there's a question of how to tie them in to surrounding content. An extra layer for NPCs to strip during events would complicate things a lot.

      2. I agree there's a lack of school content, and more classes are planned, along with clubs and cliques. I'm not sure when to expect them though. The school is a central location and needs a lot more content.

      3. I agree that would be cool!

      4. I would also like to add Avery's manor! There's a lot I'd like to add. One is a pizza delivery job, but it's a bit of an aside, and I think I should focus on more core content for a bit.

      It's no problem at all.

    3. For 1) maybe they could just fall off your body when you get tackled down. With how easily clothes get torn up normally, I'd think this wouldn't be too big a stretch lol

      Then you can get them back if you win the encounter or maybe lose them if you get taken somewhere else. This reminds me of how hats work a little...

  35. I'd really love transformations to change more for the PC with some more scenes for certain transformations and more options on how to use your animal/divine abilities. For basic stuff I think wolves, cats, foxes, and harpies should gain claws for stronger punches. Foxes could gain Keen Eyes could allow them to spot things normally unnoticed while exploring the town. Cats could gain Keen Ears and be able to listen to people whispering, hear someone from a distance, and focus on someone's voice in a large crowd. Wolves could gain Keen Noses and be able to smell peoples scents, helping them track people like love interests and make random events with love interests more common, it could maybe also give you a choice on events when visiting the houses, mansions, and flats. All of these could also help you when someone attempts to sneak up on the player to attack them, maybe giving them a free turn in combat where you catch the culprit off guard.

    Another thing I'd really like that would likely be a toggle would be some bigger visual changes from animal transformations, you probably already know what I mean but I'm talking about things like knotted penises for the wolf and fox transformations and other similar things. I also think a horse transformation would be pretty cool!

    With the horse transformation you'd gain the confidence, poise, and build of the centaurs, increasing your allure and attractiveness, physique, penis and ball size (boobs if female), speed of your hair growth, and increase the speed that you travel through the countryside, forest, and moor. With the horse transformation your body's limits are weakened, boosting the effectiveness of your physique and gaining an extra bigger penis size. If the visual changes I mentioned before would be added they'd also have a flared and ringed penis.

    I also remember reading a comment on the last update mentioning penises sticking out from underwear and shorts when at high arousal and I'd really like that addition too! Smaller penises could stay hidden with it slowly being more exposed as the penis' size and your arousal increases, this could give a huge boost to allure and add some more short scenes with npcs! They mentioned a few ways of hiding it but I think the best way would be to add it as a trait for shorts and underwear, maybe called 'Risky', to tell you which could expose you. I think it'd be good to leave some clothes without the risk like school shorts. They also mentioned choosing how your penis hangs which I think would be funny and cool too lol

  36. Hey Vrel or team, I was wondering if it'd be possible to implement a player and NPC hygiene system with dialogue referencing how good/bad smelling, clean/filthy, sweaty, ect the character is in combat which can affect seduction, lewdness, and general attitude towards the NPC. Also dialogue detailing how filthy the NPC is in combat with the ability to cause the pc to become filthy from other filthy NPCs. It's kind of a turn on imagining my character being fully bathed and shaven then captured by the wolves, hawk, or Eden and over time becoming more and more dirty, sweaty, hairy, etc.

    I had mentioned this in an earlier post but could never find my comment to see if anyone replied. Thanks in advance.

    Replies
    1. Did you ask this question back in April? I have a memory of it. Vrelnir did respond to the hygiene issue a while later, to the effect that a hygiene-related system had existed in the early development, though it had since been adjusted to focus on mechanics related to semen and slime rather than other forms of filth. He'd also like to add more NPC reactions. Additionally, Vrelnir thought the hygiene stat for NPCs was an interesting idea, albeit not in the plans, but he thought others might indeed find it interesting. If this comment hasn't been eaten by the blog yet, you should be able to find it in the comments section of the post 0.4.6. Or it's possible that this isn't your previous comment, but that their topics are relevant.

      The game had a hygiene meter early in development, but l decided that having cum and slime as a separate mechanic would bea better approach, as I wasnt interested in other forms of filth. 'd like to add more NPC reactions to these.
      A hygiene stat for NPCs is an interesting idea though, and not something 've really consideredl t's not planned, but thanks forthe food for thought. Some people would indeed be into it.

Only able to get to that warm is from a pair of leggings flagged as underwear and the backpack gives warm, otherwise 33 would be warmest. Coats replacing tops does not allow for an extra 5-6 points a top would give in addition of a coat.

  43. Thank you for the additional content (especially Remy)! I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I just unlocked the wolf cave with Black Wolf, and for some reason the pack will not return from their hunt! My PC has been babysitting these cubs for hours yet the pack just won't return lol. Look forward to seeing more fleshed out content in the future for all the LIs!

      Please backup your game save data. Then download it again after completely deleting DoL, and load your backed up game save data. Because I think there might be an unknown bug between the new version and the old one.

    1) at what level of love do we become Avery's fav or even slightly important to him
    2)do mr Avery ever think of us when we're not together? also, no just for sex or showing off.
    3) have Avery ever thought of buying us, like even considered it or..?

  53. Yay, update! Thanks, Vrel and team!

    So I’ve got a few weird requests. The first I’m honestly not sure if there’s anything you can do about it considering the graphics style, but I thought I’d mention it anyway. If the PC has the palest possible skin tone, the cum display is very hard to see. In fact, I didn’t even notice that there was a visualization until I started playing with a darker skin tone several updates back. Not really sure what could be done about it, but I hope it’s something you’ll consider.

    The second request is, I’ll admit, embarassingly American of me, but it would be great if there was a toggle to switch the temperature to Fahrenheit.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No problem!

      Thanks for the feedback. Perhaps the cum could be given a tint that stands out against all skin tones.

      We have a toggle between different time styles, and one for temperature wouldn't be inappropriate.

  54. Hey!I found a things
    When Whitney no li,no love,100dom..
    Even though Whitney has 70 or more lust.

    Even though pc how do with whitney,and how long, pc always keep all Virginities.

    Q1:So Why Whitney such peace and kind....?
    Q2:What's the Whitney love?I just thought if love lower Whitney would more ruthlessness before.
    Q3:would have added "Whitney could got all PC's Virginities when no love" After?



    -
    Q4 if could I hope Whitney Without any respect, derisively, with great intensity and violence, take away all the PCs Virginities..



    (I just learning English..)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ai translate: 0 love, 70 and more lost, 100dom. No matter how long the PC interacts with Whitney, the PC can remain a complete virgin.
      What is Whitney's favorability/affection? The lower the favorability, the lighter her means seem to be? That's too strange.

      Delete
    2. Q1: Whitney could indeed be a bit more callous at low love, and perhaps less callous at high.
      Q2: I've considered adding content for Whitney with negative love in the past, but it's not planned. They shouldn't be more kind at low love though.
      Q3: A special event for Whitney taking all of the PC virginities at low love could be interesting.
      Q4: This could be interesting as well.

      Thanks for your thoughts!

  59. I just saw your reply, interestingly, I was also thinking about adding my feeling on the rain scenes in the game... In the morning when I gazed at them, the PC was in Eden's cottage, with a gentle drizzle falling from the sky. I felt like I could almost smell the wet earth after the rain. Since you are replying to comments, I decided to add it here. Thanks to Xao and the contributors for their beautiful work. Without witnessing it firsthand, I really couldn't imagine that such limited pixels could create such delicate beauty, evoking a truly immersive atmosphere. Thank you so much for not minding answering my curiosity about personality. I'll shamelessly boast a bit that the answer is very similar to what I expected!

Blown away by the new scenery for the images, it’s breathtaking😍One issue though that I noticed on my character is some of the clothing seems to be bugged? like bras, and even the babydoll lingerie.

  62. Hi, Vrel! I have some questions, sorry to bother you.

    1. What if the PC write a lewd fiction with between themselves and teachers on English class, and read it at the class how would Doren and Kylar react? (This'll increase cool state or decrase? Maybe depend on teachers?)
    2. If other teachers read that lewd fiction, how would they react? (River: *faint* ++delinquency)
    3. I love teachers so much, so I want kidnapped them and lock them in to the loft(like kylar)... And if the PC succeeded to lock them, how would they react, and which teachers would escape first and last?
    4. Following previous question, if Robin notice the PC kidnapped teacher on the loft, would they help the teachers to escape or the PC to keep lock them?
    5. What is teachers most confident about?
    6. What is Briar, Remy and Niki most confident about?
    7. If the PC calls Whitney "Shitney" will they get mad?

    I really love new preg update! I hope we can have some preg event with poi NPCs too! (Even if not long as Lis though)

  64. ooh amazing update!!! n just in time for the deadline too lol
    also snazzy new logo :00 i like glowy things :D

    love how in-depth the warmth system is now, though I'm sure I'll take that back when i realise that i can't wear my carefully curated outfits anymore lol but i will gladly suffer the heat syncope to stay cute

    really glad that great birdy is finally getting some love! must be awfully boring in that tower, when PC just leaves for an extended amount of time. now they at least get to enjoy the delights of being a single parent! yaaay :3

    AND I've whittled myself down to now only being half salty about Avery getting his mansion :D
    however, a considerable amount of sodium remains, I'm afraid (i mean c'mon, before Whitn- nono this is FINE, Avery deserves this) put me in a room with a fish n that thing will come out perfectly preserved B) maybe with a bite taken out of it, depending on the kind of fish :3
    do you like fish?
    Avery used to be my fave, so maybe new content will reignite the flame, or whatever
    however, if he doesn't pull a pretty woman on us, i WILL cry like a BABY >:'( i just noticed that i don't have any specific timeframe set for when he needs to do that by, so ig I'll just start now TTwTT

    how is this comment so long, without saying anything substantial? call me Houdini, because i make your time disappear lol
    anyway, i do have some questions cooking in the ol think tank tho, but in my exceeding graciousness and humility i will not torment you with them today
    bet u cant guess what those are about lol ;3c

    i will now ask a question anyway
    is there some sort of roadmap or similar for the content you plan on adding?
    i also petition for the maybe pile to be renamed to maybe mountain

  74. Love the update! Huge kudos to the contributors for the beautiful backgrounds and the dynamic weather!

    One thing I've been wondering though is will there ever be additions to cross-dressing? It has a lot of interesting interactions and I love playing around with it. Like maybe the option for male PCs to tuck so their bulge is less visible like the chest binding clothes that cross-dressing female PCs can use. It could even be interesting to have the PCs comfort level and skill develop the more they do it if you don't start with the trait.

  76. Really great update! I know you're probably inundated with concepts and ideas all the time, no matter how niche they are, but one thing I'd really like to see is more underwear specific material. Especially when it comes to things like getting raped or masturbating or exhibition. Whether they're character or story specific scenes, or even just random encounters - dry humping, sucking an NPC or character off through their underwear, and especially cumming in your underwear and making a mess of yourself. Even just adding that extra layer and describing an NPC or character's underwear instead of them always just being naked right away would be neat!

  77. hey vrelnir, thanks for another update, it seems like an interesting update, then you need to see how the transformations affected the temperature of the PC, as the harpy and wolf transformations should give an increase in temperature, so even without clothes you can keep your hair warm hair or feathers, probably, the demon transformation also uses clothes with exhibitionism and promiscuous traits, angel could give resistance to heat since it will probably require more clothes and reserved clothes, the cow and cat transformation I don't know exactly how it would work in these cases.

  78. I'd love for there to be some small scenes with npcs or small lines regarding you having a bulge, maybe "People glance at your bulge as you pass by them." or "You notice people staring at your huge bulge." if you have a bigger penis. Some npcs might try to help the player and warn them about their bulge and the player could flaunt it, there could also be a scene opposite to the butt grabbing npc where they grab your bulge and you can either sink into it or push them away, or npcs could just make flirtatious comments regarding the player's bulge. There could even be unique dialogue in special places like the office or school. I also think constricting clothing could cause bulges to be more defined and outlined for others to see or a new clothing trait could be added for it. Love the new update!!!
    never thought I'd say the word bulge so many times in my life and its making me kind of uncomfy lmao

  80. Thank you for the update vrel and team. This one seems... interesting, wasn't expecting anything like this, tho i haven't been keeping up with comments or the discord so if there were any hints i didn't see them. Gonna be interesting to find out how it works and how it changes the way we play the game. I know you're aware of this and it's probably brought up somewhat often, but i wanted to ask why exactly the mobile combat animation bug happens. I get that the fact that it hasn't been fixed yet means that it isn't a simple problem to fix, but i'm really curious if there is a way to avoid it or a workaround without disabling combat animations. Either way, excited to try out the update some time. Excited for all the others to come for the 0.5.x versions.

  81. dear vrel and developer team
    it's without doubt i love the new weather system and the image overhaul of our fine city
    it looks astounding and i have more reason to use a mix of my clothes
    however i somehow have difficulty to notice the rain display, especialy during night and dawn
    it is of course easily solved by hovering the mouse cursor over at the scenery image but its really troublesome having to check by mouse instead of the regular glance
    perhaps, could you change it so that the weather colour contrast more from the background?
    i hope my input would be a point of consideration, thank you and regards

    p.s. i noticed the difficulty for raising and maintaining physical attribute had risen and i loved that too as it posed more challenge

  84. thank you for the update, vrel! the new weather system is so good snd the visuals are stunning. I'm enjoying it so far. well, there's one bit where it's getting slightly harder to spend time with Whitney at the park if the rain falls too late but...guess there's no helping it. sometimes I wish there's another way to approach them after school outside the gate events.

    speaking of Whitney... I think there are few instances where the clock doesn't move on the rainy park scene. for example, smoking doesn't move the time by 10 minutes like the other, and I -think- milkshake sometimes doesn't move the time by 20 minutes despite the option said so.

    also another...bug, I think? my journal and indicator said I have a book overdue but I don't know what book it is and there's no option to return it either. the update started in the middle of summer break, but now that the school has started, I'm stuck with invisible book that keeps adding my delinquency. Sydney commented on it but still, no option to return the book. is there a way to get around this?

    a few more things I'd like to comment and ask...
    1. now it occurs me that Avery and Whitney are actually quite similar in several aspects, but also different in the others. I wonder if there will be interactions between them. personally I think they would really dislike each other.

    2. while I enjoy the scene so much, I feel like the scene with Whitney asking for PC's orphanage could have alternatives because....they keep forgetting where the orphanage's location.

    3. I've been wondering, is there a reason why town upgrade is tied with Tentacle Forest?

    thank you for everyone's work! I don't particularly interact with Great Hawk but this is still a huge update!

    2. while i do like the weather update - it does feel more realistic to me and all the art is really nice, but it makes it harder to meet Whitney >< ^^. kinda hope that in the future we'll get a place where he hangs out without his dogs and with no weather requirements ^^;.

      and as for the questions:
      2. actually, if you agree to go on the roof, but then refuse to cooperate, Whitney will say that he already knows where you live. so that doesn't seem to be another example of his memory issues ^^;

      and as for 4. i'm pretty sure Vrelnir mentioned that events like this are planned

      Delete
    3. while the school roof scene indicates that he already knows where we live, the alleyway scene (that followed by orphanage visit event the next day) will still play. I kinda wish the alleyway one will have some alternative text. maybe instead of pointing the orphanage again like they've never been there before, Whitney can have a small talk with PC, promising/threatening to inspect PC's place or something along that line.

  85. Hi vrelnir! I’ve noticed while rewding through comments on these posts that a lot of the people playing doil have some (obviously) wild kinks and fetishes, it kind of made me wonder, have you ever seen a suggestion for a kink or fetish that was just too extreme for you?

    On another note though lol, my biggest kink would probably be exhibitionism which I love that it has a pretty good amount of content for in dol, when do you think more scenes would be added for it and the other sexual stats?

    If exceed a certain limit, you will get lewd traits such as hypersexuality or never-ending estrus.
