Newlife 0.3.15

Hello everyone!

Version 0.3.15 of Newlife is finished and I've released it on Patreon. Early-access Patrons can find it in the creations section here. The changelog is below.



Version of 0.3.14 is now public. You can download it using the links on the right-hand side of the blog. The 0.3.14 changelog is here.

As usual, saved files & templates from older versions probably won't work with newer ones. 

For new players - just use one of the links to the right to get either the jar or the exe version. You only need one or the other - not both. I recommend trying the jar first.

For either version you'll need to have Java installed. A lot of programs use Java so you might well already have it. If the jar shows up as an unrecognised file type, then you probably don't. In that case you can get it from http://www.java.com/
The exe should tell you if you don't have the right version on your computer, but you'll still need to install java to run the game.
There's a guide for new players here which includes some troubleshooting tips for installation & downloading.

The main change for this version is a new scene that branches off from dates. This is similar to the porn cinema one, although this one can be initiated by either the player or her date if the requirements are met.


Here's the full changelog:



Major changes & additions:
  • One new scene which can be accessed from a date if you or the guy you're out with have certain traits.
  • You can now ask your partner to remove a condom, as requested on Patreon by Fiery Dog Poop, which I assume is not their real name.

Minor changes & bugfixes:
  • Fixes to text issues. Thanks to atc, death25, plundernoob, notyou & secondarian for reporting problems they found.
  • Added a change suggested by neokenka where the player will get a willpower hit if she has a lot of orgasms. This counts all orgasms across the scene-chain (e.g. nightclub-home-sex-morning after) regardless of how you have them or who you have them with. The effect starts at 3 orgasms – one or two does not give you a penalty. The maximum effect is at a fairly ridiculous 10+ orgasms and is as large as the maximum alcohol modifier.
  • Added shortcut keys to the describe people ('D') and describe scene ('S') buttons, as requested by LavBlu
  • Slightly improved the variety of sexy outfits npcs can pick (in e.g. the befriend scene where you go shopping).
  • Fixed a bug where concert invitations were not becoming less likely as the pc attended them. The chance of a concert being on in any particular week will now reduce as the pc goes to them, with the maximum reduction after attending two.
  • Npc who get drunk will now have an extra line in their descriptions with a clue to how soused they are – this was a suggestion from Baby J on Patreon.
  • Npcs can now autonomously wear condoms if the pc is on the pill or pregnant, but the action is rarer in these situations.
  • Slightly rewrote some of the male npc clothing descriptions.
  • Fixed a very unusual situation reported by Cubano where you can end up having a 0-year anniversary.
  • Fixed a problem in one scene reported by death25 where you can end up drinking alcohol even when pregnant.
     


Update: the following changes were added in an improved version released 22/01:
  • Fixes to text issues reported by Cubano and BleepBloop
  • Made it easier to orgasm during the pervy client office scene by firstly increasing the arousal bonus for low-self-esteem characters and secondly adding another boost for characters with the overactive imagination trait who go to his office without wearing underwear. This only applies to the office version of the scene – the home one is unchanged.
  • Rewrote the booty-call scene to have more variation, including some new lines for men who like oral sex.
  • Added some lines for men who like oral sex to the scene where your partner visits when you're stressed out.
Enjoy the new version, and let me know if you find any bugs!

    2. Ooooooooooooohhhhh yeah i remember.
      Btw is it possible to add a Patreon cheat to let all the men in our city our number from the beginning... like the hug box thing but numbers.

    3. Sure, although I've used that in testing before and you'll get a huge pile of date requests every single week - even when you haven't met the men in question.

  5. This game should really have some art. I think that it would be a great idea to look up some artist who do R-rated art and have your patrons decide which one you should commission. It would make a great game even better.

    1. Newlife isn't suited to artwork. Most significantly - it doesn't seem realistic for a project of this scale to have art that supports the full range of combinations of character appearances.

    2. MS paint drawing of a stick-figure with colored clothing that changes with outfits would be hilarious!

      Stupid, inflate size for no reason and pointless. But hilarious non-the-less

      You're about to put your toy to use when you feel Will's powerful wrap around your feminine one.

  7. After having a play through i must admit it is a very good game, however i have noticed that when you break up with someone it just doesn't seem real.

    for example 1. if your new boyfriend finds out that you have been seeing your ex a new scene should happen when you argue?

    2. Maybe have a scene when you are on a date then you see your ex and something happens?

    3. i know that if you go on a date with your ex you can act cold, maybe depending on their personality they can be begging you to come back or calling you a bitch. only because you have nearly the exact conversions as if you where on a normal date.

    4. if you break up with some one it should be in their description that he is your ex.

    5. basically more scenes with ex

    1. Not a bug, it's a feature; Neat one, too.

    2. There are outfit-level modifiers which vary on type. For example some outfits have increased naughtiness for going without a bra, while others don't.

  9. In my opinion 'Sexy nightwear' items should be way more 'Naughty' and a bit more 'Attractive' surely a girl in lingerie is pretty hot.

  10. How in the world are people getting so many orgasms? :(

    1. Boy part goes into girl part.

    2. Yeah, but however many times I try, I can't get girl to orgasm more than once during happy-fun-time, and half the time guy finishes before she does.

      Delete
    3. It'll depend a lot on traits and playstyle. The willpower modifier includes all orgasms across the entire scene-chain though, which can include more than one sexual encounter.

  12. I kind of liked the 0-year anniversary glitch. It was useful for testing out how various boyfriend traits affected the event without having to play through the entire 26+ weeks of a game needed to trigger it. Using the exploit still fills up the weekend slot with the event, but now there's no actual scene to go with it.

  13. Hey splendid, I've recently started working on a java program to automate the NPC creation and was wondering if you could give some pointers, specifically in the areas of writing to file and JOptionPane menus that would be appropriate for the task. Or you could just hijack the project, whatever is fine with me.
    What I have so far: Skeleton class

  14. When you are giving a blowjob in the restroom, I really wish there was the option to "do nothing" and the man ends up doing all the work for you by force.

    1. If your character likes rough sex, you can always just ask him to facefuck you

  15. So I read your post on another page of this blog that anal scenes are off the table? Dealbreaker for me sorry, pledge cancelled.

    1. Yeah, I've seen complaints about this elsewhere too. The game's been brought up a couple times on /hgg/, and every time the lack of buttsex is literally the most common complaint.

      It's something I *really* hope SO will come around on. It was up for the "prove me wrong" vote, but the voting minority apparently wasn't representative of the "general public," so to speak, and it'd really suck to have to wait another how many months just to have another *chance* at voting it in

  16. Technically playing on 3.10 so please forgive me if I've missed any changes that deal with my little issue since that version. Or, hell, if it's simply already in the to-do list:

    Anyway, so I've gotten mugged a few times and it strikes me as very odd that despite my character's increasingly obvious pregnancy(latest mugging being in the same week as the mirror scene I'm assuming heralds third trimester), there's no way to leverage that against the mugger or other interaction with the scene at all. Come to think, the mugging scene's pretty sparse in general and could obviously be improved in a lot of ways but even some extremely simple pregnancy interaction(ie: beg for mercy - % chance of success based on trimester) would be much appreciated.
