CastleRock Alpha 4 Release

Alpha 4 Changelog November 30th, 2017.

Combat Changes: General quality of life improvements to combat which ultimately creates a new ‘late game’ for combat.  Previously combat end conditions were somewhat unclear and spontaneous. Combat now continues until the player is ready for it to end. Players have more options when they are losing or lost, and even after the fight as well. The fleeing aspect has been improved, while under the hood system is unchanged, it’s build up is now visible and players can now see how close combatants are to escaping. Player Parties now follow the player out on flee attempts. Enemy fighting styles have been adapted and can attempt to flee as well. Robots are now a bit different in combat, no longer requiring energy like the rest of us living souls. Players will discover they will need to use different strategies when fighting these mobs.

Perks and Experience: Experience gains have been greatly increased, and perk cost has been adjusted. Basic Brood Mother and Engineering Perks can be purchasable. Each level unlocking additional tiers which give recruitment access to higher level mobs. Tier 1 – Drone/ Bloatfly, Tier 2 – Rover/ Leyak, Tier 3 – Android. Programmer and Hive Mind perks allow the player to completely control the respective party member type during combat. Finally Butcher/Scrapper perks which give extra resources from combat victories. New Event: Players can now discover enemies already partaking in sexual acts. While exploring alone, the requirement for sneaking up and watching is only [4] Smart, with an additional point required for each extra party member.

New Enemies: Another Ekdromoi tribe member, the Ekdromai. Another female family member with a skittish fighting style found in fields and scrapyards past the n1 range. An Android, a humanoid robot found in scrapyards past the n1 range, can be repaired as a party member if the player has the engineering 3 perk. The Rover enemy has been retextured slightly, and is now also able to acquired as a party member if the player has the engineering 2 perk.

New Animations:

(1) Female Climax animation for Female X (Generic) Male.
(2) Android X (Generic) Female
(3) Android X (Generic) Male
(4) Drone X (Generic) Female
(5) Male X (Small Breasted) Female – (Ekdromai)
(6) Male X (Small Breasted) Female – (Ekdromai)
(7) Rover X (Small Breasted) Female – (Ekdromai)

New Filter Options: Very specific filter options which effect enemy spawns. –It does not yet filter the voyeur special event-- If all the mobs are disabled in a biome, a filler enemy “Dinki Di” will appear instead. There are no lewds associated with this mob. It’s more of a failsafe condition when all enemies are disabled.

Finally I started a forum for CastleRock. It’s a very dead forum with no users! You’re able to post with out signing up as well (until the robots find it). I’m going to start using it as center hub for info and mods. I’ll also link the troubleshooting to there as well. I’d also like it to serve as the primary contact for the dev team for anything really. https://CastleRock.Boards.Net

Hello! Mac is my platform. What do I have to do to get this game started up? That's if its been ported over to Mac.

I've been tols the linux version will run on mac. You'll need to be able to run the .jar file.

I can run .jar file but the file isn't in .jar, instead it's ".7z"

Ah, you have to extract the files first. Its compressed. I personally use 7zip, but you might need to search for an alternative for Mac.

Ok so, I've managed to extract the files. But another problem has arisen. I open the .jar file, it runs but stops at this transparent window saying "Protected with trial version of Java Antidecompiler 8.5"

You're not the only one,  reference this, if could. I put out another patch just now however, and if it works for you can you let me know?

I did overhaul the title screen to display lots of graphics this time, so it might be eating up more processing than a game like this should.  What are your computer's specs?  Might have to tone it down a little.

Found an error:

Cannot get past broodmother 2, the perk changes into engi 2 and you need to get Brood 1 again, rinse and repeat

Edit: Doesnt appear to actually give the engineering one in this scenario, I have brood 2 listed twice in my perks, but no engineers. So yes, appears to be a bug, not a feature.

Thanks, I'll check it out. However there is no use for brood mother 3 yet as a perk.

Patched the perk bug in Alpha 4.4. Thanks for reporting the issue my friend.
