Hey guys, so this update is a little soon (first time I've ever said that) but the time between updates prior to 0742 was quite long so I figured before I head away next week I'll try and get a bunch more work done and pump out some smaller updates, the main focus here was to do far more tests on the new throne room, remove any bugs and tweak anything I didn't like as well as to add new sounds and content where I could.
THRONE ROOM TWEAKS
Mostly small stuff, but my favourite is now if you get a sudden death player in your throne room you can rob him just like you can rob coin flippers! rip sudden death players coinpurses.
- Added new screen to advice giver paid
- Made public opinion loss for demon sacrifice encounter more common (now 50/50)
- Added coin bag screen for knight giving 100 gold coins
- Removed pointless exit option from sudden death encounter
- Added new recognition of previous play with options and text in sudden death throne encounter
- Added ability to rob sudden death players in throne room encounters
- Replaced bard 'begins to play for you text' with 'prepares to play for you' to avoid confusion
I've been continuing the drive of adding more sounds to warsim, these are mostly inconsequential but I think they do make the game feel more alive and quite a few of these are funny sounds, the goblin joiner one is my favourite but it's a secret! :o
- Added new ominous sound effect when receiving orb of chaos in throne room encounters
- Added new laughter sound effect that can occur anytime someone laughs in throne room
- Added new death sound effect (man says uh oh before he is killed)
- Added new variant to woohoo sound effect (now either of them can play when called)
- Added new special sound effect to goblin joiner in goblin wants coin encounter
- Added new sound effect for bowstring being pulled back (in archery game)
- Added new laughing child sound effect (now two different ones used at random)
- Added new sound effect 'trumpet solo'
I plan to expand the reaction system more in the next few updates but here are a few I've added in this update, mainly for knights questing instead of the same common boring line coming up.
- Added 'cowering peasant' peasant execution reaction
- Added 'hands over eyes' peasant execution reaction
- Added it's not a game child arrest reaction
- Added 2 more reaponses to knight refusing to go on a quest
- Added 7 new reactions to knight agreeing to go on a quest (instead of same fixed line)
- Added 'thy sword' reaction to being hired
- Added 'hidden trumpet' reaction to being hired
Ospreys are now in the game, bird up!
- Added New Race 'Osprey Folk'
- Added New Race 'Ospreymen'
- Added New Race 'Were-Ospreys'
- Added New Race 'Evolved Ospreys'
- Added New Race 'Half-Ospreys'
- Added New Race 'Shapeshifting Ospreys'
- Added New Race 'Ospreylings'
- Added new kingdom type 'Ospreydom'
- Added new creature 'Osprey'
Quite a few bug fixes here found from my testing, though I will need to continue testing the throne room extensively, there's also a major issue blocking you from being able to purchase the trap door upgrade (which was one of the crowning acheivements of the last update)
