New Buildings

The artist and apothecary workstations are now craftable at the builder's. An assortment of cottages without windows has also been added, in case you needed more wall space to cram full of paintings.

Status of Adventuring

I have two weeks off work here soon (December 18th - January 2nd) and my goal for this period is to put about 6-8 hours a day into adventuring during the entirety of that time. I expect to have significant progress towards adventuring (ideally where it is in a testable state) by early January.
  • Backend database implementation
  • Draw icons and image assets
  • Draw maps, backgrounds, and monsters done within the next week
  • Prepare for adventuring (set up cats, party, backpack, etc.)
  • Between encounter options
  • Skill challenge encounters
  • Battle encounters
  • Loot, experience, and leveling
  • Usable items
  • Ascension

Bug Fixes and Small Changes

- The text limit for forum posts, profiles, and bios has been significantly raised.

- Niblings are no longer called siblings when generating new beans.

- Some kittens are no longer forbidden from making friends with the friend making item

- Apothecary now lets you use Wintermint as expected

What's next?

- Adventuring

- Catmint Tea and Heart of Nestor specialty items

- Home Lodge where you can buy more scenes with paper notes and give cats leadership positions that don't contribute to your population cap.
