Not a whole lot going on here – just Emmy’s pre-sex stuff and some energy toys for you all to play with for the most parts.
- Emmy has been added to the DMZ. This jackal will sell you all manner of energy weapons and a few nice shields.
- Gedan fixed TONS of bugs. TONS.
- Bows got nerfed to the ground.
- Jacques00 submitted a billion fixes and tweaks.
- New busts from Shou for the Praetorians, Princess, and Queen Taivra.
There’s probably still a pile of bugs to sort through, and then I’m going to get to work on on the sexy funtimes with Emmy. RIght now I’ve got a pretty saucy cunnilingus scene that clocks about 600 words, and while it may be short, I think it’s one of my hotter bits of text.
Princess Bust by Shou!
bows nerfed! damn. Well i sure hope that your new energy weapons make up for it. looking forward to the next public release.
oh but I am
I checked the ranged energy weps; they do like 20 physical damage (1 electric 19 burning)
HAPPY BOWDAY TO THE GROUUUUND!
nice one fen
MY SHOPKEEP’S NOT A PHONE! DUH!
Might be something obvious, but with the recent website fuckery how does one log in to view backer builds? Just simply logging into this new site did not gain me anything, and obviously the old site is fubar. Appreciate the help in advance.
Never mind my previous post. Seems my dns wasn’t allowing me to view the TITS site.
While I am a bit disappointed disappointed with the extent to which bows have been nerfed (even the queen’s bow which you get after a pretty hard encounter), I suppose it is to be expected from something as low-tech compared to guns and energy weapons.
Though, I wonder if there will be additional perks from training with Tanis to make up, even a bit, for the nerf?
Doesn’t the Queen’s Bow deal lust damage? If so, doing half as much as other weapons is still geat, considering it’s a 100 lust pool vs a 400 HP pool.
Woops, I suppose you’re right…
Especially if you run a smuggler. I’m going to be checking if the Myrellion Dgn is recrushable with the Shard bow after this nerf. Before, it was crazy easy. I can see why Feno nerfed the bows. It’s a Sci Fi game, bows aren’t supposed to be apex munitions when you have orbital cannons.
An arrow can still pierce through many materials lower-velocity bullets can’t and inflict wounds that will kill you in a matter of seconds. I’ve seen what modern hunting broadheads can do to a deer. If you arn’t shot on the operating table, you’ll be dead in 10-15s from blood loss.
Their velocity, mechanically limited to only around 400fps, limits them to short range, but their wound diameters are Huge and cause excessive hemorrhaging, and their sharpness and sectional density allows them to pierce through most non-metallic substances with ease, and can even punch through thin, non-ballistic steel plates.
Realistically they’d inflict terrible amounts of damage on unarmored/lightly armored native species but against standard infantry armor or Myr plate they’d be useless unless fitted with explosive or corrosive tips.
Mmm excessive haemorrhaging and sectional density oh just do me now you STUD
I laughed entirely too hard at that.
Hey backers, quick question. Is the bow any good still? I wanted to do the bow training thing, but if it’s garbage tier now, I’ll just stick with the machine gun.
To be honest, no it went from 24 to 12 damage. but it wouldn’t hurt to train with tanis either way.
24 lust damage a shot kills everything in 2-3 turns without even spending any energy. Don’t pretend it wasn’t incredibly broken and unbalanced.
I use the other bow. Tannis’s, I think it was. Did all bows get nerfed, or just the lust bow?
I think all of them. There just needs to be a lowlevel bow to start Tanis’s training thing so that you can get it while you’re still level appropriate for Mhen’ga.
Sounds to me like it was largely only the lust bow that was horribly broken and not the other, though that one was nerfed into being near useless. Tanis’s should still do a total of 15-18pts of largely corrosive damage and/or have a corrosive acid DoT that damages health and/or defense to keep it useful.
Kinetic or burning resistances arn’t encountered often enough or in significant enough amounts to make the corrosive bow preferable, making it just about useless for the training necessary.
That said, will we be getting coilgun or railgun rifles in the future to have a kinetic competitor with the energy weapons? The 2g bullet from a P90 accelerated to 3-4km/s would put quite a hurting on anything in it’s path.
Do remember that for a long time the best gun in the game, the ZK Rifle, was Kinetic.
There will be more good Kinetic guns in the future, just like there will be more good energy guns and bows.
Burning and especially Kinetic resistances are more common than you’d think. All the nyreans have both, as do the Wetraxxel and Queen of the Deep (though the latter has resistance to everything, so no advantage for Corrosive). Cockvines and both types of myr deserters have Kinetic resistance. That’s most of the enemies on Myrellion.
That’s without even considering that all shields have Kinetic resistance.
Hence the second part about them not being significant enough. -10-20% on something that does 20 base damage isn’t going to make something that does barely more than half that preferable, especially with some creatures having a 50% vulnerability to burning.
And in the case of the secureMP/shotgun, the flurry/to-hit bonus with multiple strikes still makes it a better choice for overall dps vs the bow on even Alpha nyrea that sports the highest non-boss, non-pest kinetic resistance in-game, though the new lasers are better on them still.
If the bow had an additional DoT effect or more points of damage it would be worth switching to if you encounter something with a spot of burning resistance, but as it stands now it’s not.
I’m not saying that Tanis’ Bow is still the best weapon, I’m just pointing out that the resistances are fairly common.
what about meeting shade after taivra, is that encounter restricted to when you defeat Taivra or eventually will that encounter happen regardless of what choice we made.
Oh man I’m loving Emmy, more content quickly please!
Not gonna lie, I miss CoC, lol
Not my bows! Now what am I supposed to use in this high tech future space game, guns?!
I agree with you though. I’ve almost entirely used bows so I’m glad I have a reason to use something else now.
More cunnilingus scenes PLE~ASE. My guy’s got a Raskvil tongue and it’s never REALLY been put to the test. Some scenes where a male character can substitute his tail-cunt for anal would also be wonderful.
So I come here most times instead of the TiTS website, right. But for some reason idk if its just me but the version here is still 0.6.1b? Am I glitching out in my browser or is that the same with all?
No you are not wrong. I was under the impression that Fenoxo keeps this version 1 iteration behind the backer site to give his potential backers an incentive to… well, back. I am still new here so I don’t know if he usually takes this long to update this site when he pushes out a new build or what.
There are two versions, backers and public
Backers get constant updates of around 1 per week. Public gets a new version around once a month.
Thanks for the helpful info! 😀
That’s because 0.6.3 is for Backers…hence the “[Backers]” part in the OP title.
Fenoxo.com only hosts the Public builds while Taintedspace.com hosts both the Backer and the Public builds.
yeah, have to agree with the bow nerf, it makes no sense for a bow to be stronger than a rifle unless it’s firing explosive arrows or something.
just a suggestion but I’d be less stingy with new weapons and shields in the game, I get that you are trying to avoid number inflation where we have like 5K health and shields at the end and are doing 500 damage a shot, the weapons don’t have to have bigger numbers, just a wider variety would help.
Corrosive arrows, in this case. Bullets are good and everything, but it’s hard to attach bulbs of acid of any decent size to them (and hope they don’t burst when you fire).
Having a large variety of weapon to choose from is very nice, though it’s hard to keep them all more or less at the same power level. The Merchant Queen, for example, sells fun exotic weapons, but some of them (like the Shotgun and Pick) are pretty much garbage considering the other weapons obtainable on Myrellion.
The shotguns high to hit bonus works very well with characters capable of making multiple shots per round. It was the secureMP before the secureMP. It’s card damage may have been lower than the other rifles but it’s much greater accuracy would result in it doing more damage overall per round.
So are bows just supposed to be beginner weapons now?
Also how does crit chance work in this game? Is that crit bonus stat x/10? x/100?
Tanis’s [sic] Bow is *supposed* to be a Mhen’ga weapon, it was just nerfed prematurely; the beginner bow isn’t in the game yet, making it a really bad Myrellion weapon for the moment.
The Lust bows were obscenely overpowered and needed a severe nerf. There might be a bit of an issue where Teasing might have become better, though; HP damage weapons are always good, but Lust weapons are in direct competition with Teasing, which means whichever attack is better makes the other one useless.
AFAIK the crit chance bonus is a simple additive % chance improvement.
I guess you’re right. I never really used any of the lust bows. Just tanis’ because it reminded me of my time playing CoC. I hate that ill have to replace it with generic energy weaponry just to stay competitive now but I guess it was going to happen eventually.
Though i’ve found tease to be completly useless even before the onset of bows and with the skills being x/100 they seemed like a major pain in the ass grind just to get them to actually do something. tease and seduction combat felt far more viable in CoC. In Tits it just seems like a vestigial waste.
I can’t help but feel like you must be doing something wrong if you think teasing isn’t viable. I find teasing to be a great non-violent way for me to subdue certain opponents I’d rather not hurt physically. I mean, I’ll stab a Cunt Snake into submission, but using my knife against a Vanae Maiden just doesn’t sit right with me.
Sure, some enemies are less susceptible to it than others, but that was also the case in CoC. I can understand if your don’t want any of the tease boosting perks from transformative items, but it’s not like they’re necessary. Mixing in some stun abilities also helps.
“but using my knife against a Vanae Maiden just doesn’t sit right with me.” I KNOW Exactelly what you mean. I can never bring myself to hurt the cuties…. FEN bby we need some good passive weapons like the goo launcher <3
I have looked up and down Myrellion, the DMZ, underground, etc and I still can’t find this Emmy
Am I doing something wrong?
nah, shes in the area where you land, you know where the bar is where shade is at? in that area 🙂
inb4 not playing the backer build.
absolutely in love with Emmy, a big breasted, big cocked furry canine that has a weapon fetish wearing skin tight clothing to show off her bulge?! could she be my new Urta? only time will tell, hope she has LOTS of content and likes mods 😀
looking forward do some heavy detailed knot scenes with emmy also 🙂 hope she’s has a dominant side that you can nurture 😀

Blog. Comments. Are. Not. Where. Bug. Reports. Go.
I’m not sure if anyone’s ever suggested this but a link to the Bug Report Forum and/or GitHub Bug Report form at the top of the webpage might help weed out some of the clueless (not all as some people have to be hit by a ‘Clue x 4’… repeatedly).
There used to be a link in the sidebar. Nobody ever used that, either.
I wouldn’t say “nobody”, but certainly most of the people that posted a bug or typo report in the comments section. And the usual excuse given by those people was that they didn’t see (or more accurately never bothered to look for) the Report a Bug side section. However if the Report a Bug link(s) is placed at the very top section of the blog’s webpage then it should be one of the first links a viewer sees when they come to the blog
more lvls we need to grind more nigga.
“Hey, make the game more grindy.”
Depending on the type of ‘grinding’ going on more grinding is always better.
Darn. Now I’ll have to give my space elf viking a gun or something. Or, you know, a lust bow, assuming that they still do more lust damage than tease. Ah well. I do agree with the nerf, by the way. Bows in general were too damn powerful. I really don’t like overpowered weapons. I had been using Tanis’ bow, but I guess I’ll take a look at the Royal Shard Bow. I haven’t even gotten to the Queen yet on my latest play through.
Lust damage from two strikes connecting does lust damage roughly equivalent to a maxxed out, Pheromone Clouded ‘Really likes!’ tease.
So, a viable alternative to Teasing if you get your accuracy up high.
Hmm, that does sound decently effective, considering that it could combine nicely with some to the smuggler perks. I’ll have to try it out.
Hey guys just wondering if the new ships have had plans to have certain featchures in them like showers or kitchens?
Your current ship has a shower and a kitchen in it.
Is Liliana bugged? I can’t seem to trigger the scene to buy an arm for her again. Was it supposed to be a one time thing? Great game btw =D
She’s only missing one arm.
She only lost one arm…
You can not retrigger it if you got her a replacement arm.
I just got into these games (TiTs, CoC, and FoE) but when does the TiTs update? Every two to three weeks?
TiTS usually gets updated 2-3 times a month.
1 is always a public, while the other releases of that month are backer.
Backer builds are dropped basically every time Fen judges there’s enough new content, public builds are about once a month.
From the eternal… from within… THE END IS NEAR…
EVERYTHING IS…. CHANGING!!!
Can I just say that I’m a bit worried that the PC seems to be a bit ehm…Well, racist. According to the update involving Emmy, anyways. Or perhaps that’s not the right term? Well, no matter. The point stands that TiTs takes place how far into the future and we still haven’t sorted out equality as a race?
Good lord, humanity today is more accepting than the way you portray it in the future, Fen. Have some hope, man!
I mean, after all, all sapient life has rights. We’ve yet to meet other sapient life in the galaxy, hence which we call them human rights, but the moment we do, I’m sure the definition of how we assign rights will change dramatically from just human to sapient. So as I’ve said, Fen. Have some hope, man!
Now I’m going to end this with some sort of wise quote from no one in particular. “It only takes one man to lead the oppressed to a brighter future. However, when he does, it often leads to war.”
That statement, by the way, has a very cryptic message. I wonder how many people here will understand it.
Really? I was trying to be conscious of players who might not like furries or herms, and hard PC’s tend to be extra dismissive. Mighta gone too far on that then.
Please make this for android it’s still 0.6.1b on your play page
Srry I haven’t posted any weapons yet Fen and Savin. My laptop power supply and power jack bit the shit and I had to wait for a new one to be mailed in.
If you could give a list of the stuff you got already I’ll work around that, I still intend to make my tri-barrel laser rifle that I randomly created in chat with Savin so no worries.
