Oh that's a good point. I could make a simple options menu with that and some graphic setting options. I'll add that to the updates list :)

To be honest Unreal Engine 4 is very taxing, there's still a lot of bells and whistles I have to deactivate. I'll see if I can optimize the settings and patch it soon so it's more friendly for people with slower computers, because based on the models and textures being used it shouldn't be that bad.
Hmm, that's very odd! Here, I'll toss the x64 version up on dropbox and post a link here in case anyone else runs into that problem.
There you go :)
I believe that the current public release version of the game does not allow for direct commanding of monsters, this will be in the next public release on the 15th however.
I'm also aware of the problems with the buying land feature, it's a simple fix just one I haven't gotten around to yet, just a collision problem.
Thanks so much for the feedback :) I'll definitely have that fixed for the public release this month.
This kind of stuff is super helpful!
You're right! Since I play test in such small time frames I guess I've never noticed this error from extended game play. There was a dead end in one of the loops which did not allow the spawning system to reset after a girl had been spawned! I just fixed this and I'll patch it very soon.
There's a few things in here I'm aware of, but will be fixed in future updates. Flowers are not yet in the save system, so they do not save yet. I don't know why I even put seeds in the shop tbh. The girls can eat acorns or each other's fluids. If there is a tree in your garden it will produce food for them consistently.
That arena glitch is kind of strange, I've experienced it before, I might just end up locking their y translation.
This is great though, thank you so much for taking the time to play test, anything else you come across or any other ideas or suggestions pleae don't hesistate to post!
Thanks I'm glad you're enjoying it :)
So the spawning system is based on the in game clock and tries to spawn a girl every hour, which translates to one minute of game time.
First a random number between 0 and 3 is generated, if it's not a zero, nothing happens. This means the chance to spawn a girl every minute is 25%.
Then the requirements are checked and a list of possible spawns is built, then a random type is picked from the list and that species is spawned, as long as there are less than 2 already in your garden.
I will double check that I didn't screw something up in the last update but it's probably just bad luck. A trick is to save your game a few seconds before the hour and load if nothing shows up in a few seconds (It takes new spawns about 20 seconds to move from their spawn location in the forest to your garden).
It's probably a lot of settings I havn't disabled yet in UE4. There's a lot of bells and whistles that come enabled that I don't need, and I need to find the settings which strike the balance between performance and graphics that I'm looking for, which is actually on the lower end as far as 3D graphics are concerned.
I'll absolutely look into that, thank you!
