Newlife 0.1.1 released

It's been some long hours for me to quickly get the next version of Newlife released after that nasty save bug was found. It's ready at last, and let's hope nothing quite so bad shows up in this version.

Changes in version 0.1.1
  • Added lines to separate the output from different turns in the Scene viewer
  • Increased the font size in the scene viewer's text window
  • Pressing enter will now trigger the “take action” button
  • The list of actions you can take starts selected, which means you don't have to click it to use the up & down arrows to scroll. It should now be possible to fully play through scenes without using the mouse at all.
  • New 'knowledge' facet to relationships. This increases as you get to know someone by talking to them, going on dates, spending the night together etc.
  • Character browser which shows information about NPCs based on how well you know them. A basic level of knowledge is needed for an NPC to appear here. The browser can be accessed from the screen where you choose weekly activities, and also during scenes.
  • Knowledge can't be maxed out in the current version: you will eventually need to live together with someone before you can completely learn all their secrets.
  • Information that's available about men in the current version includes their physical description, most traits, their basic personality type, how much they like/love/are attracted to you and what sort of relationship you have with them.
  • The 'B' key can be used as a shortcut to show or hide the character browser. It can also be closed with Esc.
  • Some traits become visible after having sex with someone even if they'd normally need a much higher level of knowledge.
  • New trait: Perceptive
  • Added some extra text to the clubbing scene's intro for characters with low femininity.
  • Fixed the spelling of “femininity” in-game.
  • Fixed an error that broke saved games once certain events had happened.
  • One new random event. This hasn't been extensively tested yet, so keep your eyes open for any bugs or typos.
To get the new version, just use the download link to your right.

Saved games and templates from the older version won't work with this one.
