Following on from the 4.1 update, Evowok Breeder update 4.1.1 is now available to download, with nine completely new evowok breeds to catch and train, plus a few additional tweaks and fixes:
  • Added three complete new evowok lineages!
  • Fixed minor grammatical bug causing incorrect indefinite articles in catching chances for wild evowok.
  • Fixed minor bug in evowok rarity calculations.
  • Fixed bug causing NPC evowok not to use moves requiring the target evowok to be unconscious in some situations.
  • Attacks which could previously only be used against unconscious or sleeping evowok can now also be used against stunned evowok.
  • Reduced the average Strength characteristic for the gnirt lineage.
  • Added additional possible pre-learned attacks for wild evowok of several breeds.
  • Minor code simplifications/optimisations for dealing with certain injury locations.
A full changelog is available in the usual place, and the updated game can of course be downloaded here.

As always, please feel very welcome to post below with any additional comments, questions or suggestions.

Have fun. :)

Hey I started playing again recently :D I have come across a few issues/bugs

- the doctor in diamond villa who tasks you to give him 10 tourniquets wont let me turn in.
- sometimes when i get my evowoks healed, the body is the only part that doesn't get healed.
- the healers at tigers eye, zirconium and diamond villa do not give me an option to heal because of the dialogues.
- maybe increase accuracy on skills that are not high yet? I tend to lose fights mostly because they don't connect often, making it harder to train new skills. :/
Still a great game overall:D it always brings me back and wanted to try new game again! will let you know if i come across or remember anymore issues!

Hey Jona, I'm actually currently working on an update, so actually this is perfect timing for bug reports!

Ah, good find! This is a silly bug, and I've fixed it for the next update. :)

That's interesting - do you mean that the body isn't marked as having received medical attention at all in the injuries list? Is this in any particular circumstance? There should never be a situation where first aid can't be performed on an evowok's body...

Okay, so this is intentional for Doctor Foster in Tigers Eye - he's too busy to work on more than one evowok at a time, so as long as the other evowok is on his table, he won't be able to heal your evowok.

There isn't a healer in Zirconium Market (as far as I remember)... And having evowok healed by Sunni in Diamond Villa seems to work fine for me?

I'll be continuing to look at general game balance when I come to testing the new update - but for now, a good tip with this is to use your character's Experience to boost newly learned skills, and try to choose carefully when it's sensible to practise a new move during a fight.

You'll also find that evowok learn new skills at a higher level if they've learned preceding skills to a higher level first (so an evowok with 100% skill in a punch attack will start at a higher skill level if it learns a combo punch attack, for example).

Oh, and the current chance of successfully using the move is noted in the move details information for your evowok, so it's worth paying attention to this too. :)

I'm glad you're still working on the game! I always come back to it xD

- it was my mistake I thought lazarus was the healer, it had been a while since i visited diamond villa lol I just assumed most doctor npcs were healers:P

- It looks like the healers just don't fully heal the body when it's a little too damaged maybe? Earlier other body parts that were really damaged as well wasn't getting fully healed.

- thanks for telling me more about the skills! no wonder my new ability was so low, it was pretty demoralizing because missing too many times have costed me battles pretty often >.<

Medical attention to an injured body-part will restore some of its durability (if using a first-aid kit this will depend on your First Aid skill - healers will usually restore more), but will always require some natural healing too (depending on the type and severity of the injury). Some body-parts - such as fur or claws - can't be healed with first-aid at all (or only by specific healers), and have to be left to grow back naturally. Very severe or crippling injuries may need specialist attention, or not be possible to heal.

Hope that helps. :)

Update 4.2 is now out.

Amongst a lot of other changes, it fixes the bug with the tourniquet mission, and also makes Doctor Foster occasionally available to heal the player's evowok in Tiger's Eye. ;)

Enjoy. :)
