Release 0.37 2021-01-10 and 0.38 (Patreon Early Access)

Transformations have been the focus of this sprint, with a significant
re-work of the body maths to allow for the whole body size to change
correctly. This means that the player (or anyone else affected) can
finally reach the correct height for a kobold (or any other species).
The transformation also includes the colour of your skin for the first time,
exposing a long hidden part of the engine that deals with mutating colours.
Testing this took longer than anticipated, and revealed several bugs that
got fixed along the way.

New stuff:

  • Kobold transformation now includes skin colour change.
  • Completed transformation of arm length, neck length and head size.
  • Potions indicate when you haven’t consumed the whole potion.

User interface stuff:

  • For once, unchanged!

Other bits:

  • Fixed eels incorrectly damaging tattoos and brands.
  • Internally distinguish between intrinsic and carried weapons.
  • Fixed species name transition.
  • Fixed torso transformation.
  • New body part modelling (cylinder, cone frustum) fix minimum mass errors and allow for future changes.
  • Added randomised colour selectors.
  • Added point and vector maths for 3D/RGB space computation.
  • Fixed rounding error in BodyMath.
  • Fixed double counting of neck mass in Body.

Metrics:

  • 79 different locations (and another 126 in the advent dream).
  • 25 NPC characters.
  • 1460 Java classes (244k+ lines, 5.5Mbytes of source code).
  • 49 Story files (13k+ lines, 319kbytes).

Known bugs:

  • Bandits becoming unreasonably horny while you are caged by Nug.
  • Kobold guards have been caught eating their own “weapons” - it’s emergent behaviour (sort of)
  • Starting character sizes may be a little off after changes and need some further tuning

As usual, download from the usual place, and start a new game. Previous saves will not have the new content, and will likely fail to load.
