Free Votin’

Just jammed up a new poll to get an indication of things. This should be a free vote, open to everybody.

As for why… actually getting the iOS Tainted Space builds to cooperate has been a massive pain in the ass for months, and I think the code demons have managed to fuck up our ability to actually produce them for the time being.

tl;dr Whenever the iOS builds fail its always something stupid, but it takes forever to track down because we get absolutely no indication of what is actually wrong. Literally the only response we get from the tool that does the needful is this:

Basically, I need an indication of just how much of my time I can justify dumping into this on an ongoing basis. I have a feeling the iOS-only proportion of you guys is vanishingly small, and if I can justify putting off fixing things like this because it’s not like, half our playerbase, then I will so I can actually get some fucking work on content done.


[Public] Tainted Space 0.7.18

0.7.18 Changelog

  • Another chunk of rooms has been added to Uveto; the Glacial Rift is now structured.
    • The frostwyrm has been moved to its proper place on the coast of the Glacial Rift.
    • A bunch of initial events have been added around the Rift.
    • A Milodan Fertility Priestess makes an appearance somewhere in the rift; once you’ve encountered her, they’ll start to show up alongside other general combat events.
  • Standard assortment of fixes
  • The code demons came and tried to shit on the game again. They were beaten back with judicial use of science.

Changes since the last public build

  • Mrs. Reasner is in the Freezer.
  • Dreams of electric sheep puppy sluts.
  • Kaede has a new interaction at Kally’s bar.
  • Puppysluts strike again with Syri gaining a new scene for players being liberal with Omega Oil.
  • Descriptions for badonks have been changed somewhat.
  • Some new items showed up in Jade’s inventory (predominantly Puppyslut related, of course).
  • Erra shows up in various bars. (OH HEY LOOK ANOTHER PUPPYSLUT)
  • Inventory items can now be destroyed whilst out and about.
  • Pexiga got another scene.

DCL finished a p good syri pic the other day… and I would have embedded it, but this post already has nine times the puppyslut quota for the entire month, so instead have some SHINE.

The mobile builds should be up soon; iOS is being a massive piece of shit as per usual.

0.7.10 Changelog 

  • Android icons should be fixed.
  • The bottom “cropping” should also be fixed for android.
  • Some minor typo fixes.
  • A rekindled hatred of android development.

Files should be arriving soon™


Patreon Account Integration

1483302823-echo3dx_newechoFigured I’d post some info for you peeps as questions have been coming up of late, especially over the holiday period what with my inability to post builds to Patreon directly.

Firstly, only Fenoxo can actually post TiTS builds to Patreon, and it’s kind of a laborious process that we can’t easily automate or anything. That said, we also wanna start pumping out builds on a more regular basis- the last few weeks should be a good indicator of what we can do when all the annoying busy work of preparing builds is all handled automatically. (By hand, it is no-shit about 40-50 minutes of tapping fingers whilst waiting on compilers and file uploads).

I also wanna really put some time down on figuring out the nitty-gritty about the imagepak enabled build too. We kinda have the system working (and have for a long time), but not really having enough art to kick it off combined with questions about how we should distribute it have kinda held us back on it a little bit; one of the test versions I kicked together was over 100mb, and all that really had in it was high-res versions of all the busts, so we ideally need to find a way to bring that down somehow, especially between build updates! It’s pretty clear that it would be a nightmare to distribute purely through Patreon at that size period, so it’s likely that it would only ever be regularly kept up-to-date through the blog.

To get around all of that, the user accounts here on the blog can be tied to your Patreon info. If you make an account here and go look at the Profile page that’ll show up in the menu whilst you’re logged in, down the bottom there’ll be some options for linking to either old Offbeatr or current Patreon pledges. Smash-click that big old orange button and you’ll be taken to the Patreon site to confirm you wanna let the blog access your TiTS pledge info. Then you’re done! The blog will know you’ve pledged (and for how much), and let you access a bunch of stuff through a new menu specially for backer builds.

As a side note, the system had a few issues during the server migration. The keys we use to keep everything tied together only have a short duration before they expire, and unfortunately it took me longer than the expiry time for some of the keys to get everything moved over. If you’ve got any issues, try resetting the Patreon connection – look in the same place you first clicked that big orange button and there should be an option to remove the binding. Once you’ve removed it you can try adding it again, which will generate a new set of keys, but it also requires granting access to the blog again which is why I can’t do much about it for you! If you still have issues after that, send us an email so we can look into things.

As a note though, I’m going to manually clear out all of the keys and remove all of the bindings when we do the next public build, probably some time in the next couple of days, so we can get a clean start (and my logs aren’t full of key access errors). The public build will also arrive with a new solution for public source code access too, for all of you that were waiting for that.

Now, to break up this wall of text, have some work in progress science porn courtesy of echo3Dx and the combined science of a 3D artist and Ged-“I know lots of long words about Unreal Engine”-an.

New Serverino

If you’re seeing this, then you’re viewing the blog on the new server. There’s probably still some flakey and/or broken shit around that I’ll need to fix tomorrow. Nothing is probably sending out emails for a start, so don’t expect password loss/password resets/new user reg to work right now.

Also I used this as an opportunity to fuck IPB off finally. The forums have been moved over to XenForo, but I’ve not had a chance to do much of anything past “make it installed” thus far.

[PUBLIC] TRIALS IN TAINTED SPACE 0.6.86

Slam jammin’ some more hotfixesheadshot2

  • Edan should no longer potentially skip portions of his scene progression.
  • Various fixes from Jacques.
  • Some minor cosmetic fixes to Nursery things.

 

The nursery is kind of in right now. I say that in so far as it exists, but I haven’t had the opportunity to polish it and test it properly; one of the big features for it was to enable the ability to “skip” to the end of a pregnancy without having to keep spamming rest or sleep. Unfortunately a lot of the general time passage code wasn’t really written to handle passing more than a couple of hours of game time at once, so guess what I’m busy doing!

[BACKERS] TAINTED SPACE 0.6.84 – THE HOTTEST FIXES

Reminder that pubby build is due around October 6th.

0.6.84 Changelog:

  • Siegwulfe should no longer blow up your save file when you try to load.
  • Some of the initial child data tracking for the nursery should also no longer blow up your save file when you try to load.
  • Various fixes and extensions by Jacques.

Patreon Integration

I just made some updates to the Patreon integration process to catch a few oversights in the account state information. If any Patreon backers have lost access to the backer portions of the site, get in touch with us so we can investigate. I’m fairly certain there should be nobody that got caught by the change that shouldn’t have, but hey, mistakes happen :V
