Inheritance Progress Report 5/3/19
We've had a really good week this week. In total, this week almost doubles what we have ready for the next build of Inheritance in a week. It looks like we're sitting on right about 45,000 words of new content, this spans something like 30 new scenes of varying sizes and three new functions to the game. What is probably of most interest to players is that we've added periods to the game for Anna so she now has a menstrual cycle, which is a big step toward having pregnancy in the game. I'm very hopeful that I'll have more news on that front in the next couple of weeks. We've also started adding some actual lab functionality and I'm preparing to start adding some of the simpler transformations while our coders catch up with the code for the more complex stuff. As usual, I'll be putting the final touches on the content added this week over the next day or so, then drop a new test build for tester level supporters some time late this weekend. The new build should release on schedule next weekend (Most likely on the 10th).
Now, for those who want a bit more detail on what all has been added to the game since the last official build, here's the current changelog (May grow a bit still, bug this is probably what you'll find in the next build:
A28 * Wrote and added one new bed time scene related to Anna. Anna Bed Scene 3. .4k words of content. * Wrote and added a short story for Claire to Theater Mode. Claire Origins 1. While this scene is available for all supporters online, you will need the Cheat Build to access it in-game. 1.9k words of content. * Wrote and added eight new scenes to the laboratory. These scenes are to allow players to start learning how to use the equipment in the lab in preparation for actually creating transformative items. 1.1k words of content. * Wrote and added a series of seven ambient scenes with Misaki discussing her sex drive with other members of the household. Somewhat rare to trigger, but they appear in many of the rooms in the house which should help balance that. 1.5k words of content. * Wrote and added a new function to the Bathing Room. You can now make use of that room. Currently includes three "Start" scenes, three "Core" scenes, and two "End" scenes. .9k words of content. * Wrote and added a date scene for Anna. Triggered in the kitchen shortly before lunch or dinner. Down some paths, you can make a pretty big impact on her fear and trust stats so if you're grinding for those stats this is going to be a good place to do it. 8.4k words of content. * Wrote and added a fairly large scene for Anna related to the new Bathing Room function. 8.8k words of content. * Wrote and added a scene for Anna related to the new Bathing Room function. .7k words of content. * Wrote the first of a mini-series for the television related to Wanton Cove. 1.9k words of content and there's an alternate version for if Maki is present. I wrote the primary portion of the scene and LFN Park wrote the content related to Maki and Bubbles reactions. * Wrote and added the second of a four part Wanton Cove documentary. 3.8k words of content. This is a collaborative effort between myself and LFN Park. I wrote the primary portion of the scene and LFN Park wrote the content related to Maki and Bubbles' reactions. * Wrote and added the third of a four part Wanton Cove documentary. 2k words of content. This is a collaborative effort between myself and LFN Park. * Wrote and added a new bit of code for Anna's scenes that will allow us to work a wide range of content into existing scenes, this content currently includes periods, some little snips with Mully, some personalization for scenes based on who else might be present, and some weather related content. I refer to these scenes as "Insert Scenes" since they are micro-scenes that are inserted into larger scenes. I added these for Anna's work related scenes inside of the mansion for now, but once we've had a chance to properly test everything I'll start expanding into other places, characters, and times. * Wrote and added two generic Insert Scenes to the game. .1k words of content. * Wrote and added eight Insert Scenes for Anna related to her working. .2k words of content. * Wrote and added two Insert Scenes for Anna and Eve related to work hours. .1k words of content. * Wrote and added one Insert Event for Anna, Eve, and Mully related to work hours. .1k words of content. * Wrote and added five Insert Events for Mully. .2k words of content. * Wrote and added eight Insert Events related to weather, time of day, and seasons. .2k words of content. * Wrote and added three small texting scenes for Claire. .5k words of content. * Wrote and added a new bed time scene for Anna. Be nice during it and it's a cute little scene. Be cruel and you can utterly crush her opinion of you. 1.1k words of content. Generously Sponsored by Matty. * Added a new scene for Claire in the evenings at the bar. 3k words of content submitted by Irish Major Tom. * Added a new scene for Claire where she texts you. This currently appears with an VERY small chance in EVERY location in the mansion and on the grounds. In the future this will be expanded to other locations. .2k words of content submitted by Irish Major Tom. * Added a new scene for Maki/Bubbles for if you decide to fix Bubbles' smile. This one is the scene that actually makes that happen, and in turn opens up alternate versions of several other scenes already in the game. 1.6k words of content submitted by LFN Park. * Added a new scene for Bubbles, Maki, and Mitsuko that can play out different depending on if you've used the lab to fix Bubbles' nerve damage. The ability to use the lab is still not in the game, but the alternate version of the scene will become available once it is. 2.7k words of content submitted by LFN Park. * Added three small ambient scenes related to Maki and Bubbles. These scenes can appear in both the back yard and the pond areas on the estate. .4k words of content submitted by LFN Park. * Added two text messages from Maki when she's not present at the house. This has been added to every location in the mansion and on the grounds. Will expand this into the town eventually. .2k words of content submitted by LFN Park. * Added a transformation themed theme to the laboratory. Involves futa/fox transformation. 2.1k words of content submitted by Leob70. * Added three new images to the Drinking Donkey. * Added three new images to the Boathouse. * Added three new images to the East Yard. * Added one piece of character art for Rey. * Had a huge number of spelling errors reported by a fan of the game. All reported issues have been addressed. *Set Claire's intro scene up so it should only appear once now. * Updated the Special Thanks area 5/01/19. If you think you belong on this list but your name isn't there, please let me know so I can get it fixed.
Moving into the summer months: *I am hoping to get the framework for dating in place for Anna and Eve so you can start taking them out for dinner/movie/etc. *I'm writing pregnancy content bit by bit and assuming we get the code in place to support it we should be able to add content related to pregnancy through the second trimester fairly rapidly before expanding from there. *Since I like to write based on the seasons and such, as the weather warms, you can expect to see more content added to the grounds, especially the pond and pool. *Start adding a few transformation items in addition to the couple of scenes that are already in the lab.
Those are my personal goals coming into the next 4-5 months. I can't promise I'll hit every one, but I'll be doing my best. I'll also be working hard on new scenes for everyone like I always do!
