Drafting Tales has been updated to version 0.12.0.
The most important gameplay change in this update is in the Inspiration mechanic. You can now keep working even if your Inspiration has dropped to zero, however you won’t be gaining any XP from writing and your writing speed will be slower until your Inspiration recovers (any Speed EP will be ignored). You still need to carefully manage your Inspiration, but now there's less chance that you will go bankrupt due to running out of Inspiration.
Task progress dialog
The task progress dialog was taking up too much space in smaller screens and has been redesigned to be more compact. The current task is now displayed at the bottom-right corner of the screen, just below the work queue.
Fiction/non-fiction genres have been split into separate groups in the Character dialog and are now clearly marked.
Work status dialog
The summary page in the Work status dialog has been redesigned.
If you are in a hurry, there's now a button to skip the awards ceremony!
Genres/topics in the Write dialog are now sorted alphabetically.
The game has a new autosave option which is enabled by default (triggers monthly and when quitting the game). It can be disabled in the options menu.
Other notable changes
- When reading Effort Point books, you will now slowly recover Inspiration at the Idle rate.
- There's no need anymore to manually complete your work during the Revising stage. When your work reaches maximum clarity it will now auto-complete.
We've also made a new trailer for version 0.12.0.
