0.0.19.7 update available


GENERAL PRACTITIONER 0.0.19 ALPHA RELEASE - "What happens in St. Mary's..."


GENERAL:
We recommend starting a new game if you're experiencing issues regarding the game's behavior with Elisa's pregnancy and her overall story.
If you pursued another story saved games are compatible.

!PLEASE NOTE!
An overhaul of the Main Character (The Doctor) is in progress. I switched to the new Genesis 8 model to replace the older one which was made in Genesis 2.
Some images involving The Doctor may be outdated and they still need the update to be installed, so you might experience some differences between images. That's not a bug and will be fixed when the new ones will be ready.
Sorry for any discomfort this might cause.

RANDOM EXAMS:

* Fixed all improper use of personal pronouns between genders
* Fixed an issue that made the same two choices in the diagnosis choice behave differently

GAMEPLAY:
* You can visit the waiting room after Paul's exam to manually input the patient's ID you wish to examine. You can find patient's ID in their Codex.
* You can now turn down Clara if you are not interested in having an affair with her during her sexual event
* Added a suggestion on how to continue the story when you skip to August 2nd by using the "Next Event" button
* Paul's after-exam sex encounter is now available
  - After the exam, if your score is high enough, you can phone Paul's mother Judith to pursue a sexual event with her
* Selma's after-exam sex encounter is now available
  - After the exam, if your score is high enough, you can keep conversating with her to pursue a sexual event involving her boyfriend as well
* Changed some conversations with Elisa in "Our Clinic My Baby" which resulted inconsistent with some of the choices made by Rita
* Elisa will tell the Doctor he's the father if your relationship with her is high enough, else she will tell he's Greg's. Before this change she told the Doctor he was his child only if they were living together, which is inconsistent.
* Skip to the update feature has been removed as it created more inconsistencies as the story gets bigger and bigger. You can use the "Skip to the event" button to play a faster game.
* If you halted Rita's relationship after you told her about Elisa you can now phone back Rita after the paternity test to tell her about the results.
* New conversations with Rita have been added if you chose her to live with you.
* Added more conversations and sex scenes with your relative
* In order to unlock Rita's Living Together conversations you now have to click on Rita's portrait in the "House Choices" screen rather then the "Relax" button as you did before.
* Technicians now grant a -8 fame penalty in case of their Skill Test failure (from -20)
* Technicians now grant a -5 fame bonus in case of their Skill Test success (from +10)

EXAMINATIONS:
* New exam available (#48): Selma. You can access her exam via the waiting room either by clicking on her or by typing her ID (3831971048) or by going to the Exam Room after November 12th
* New exam available (#49): Maryanne. You can access her exam via the waiting room either by clicking on her or by typing her ID (7190442949) or by going to the Exam Room after November 15th
* New exam available (#50): Kenny. You can access his exam via the waiting room either by clicking on him or by typing his ID (6713489450) or by going to the Exam Room after November 20th
* If you don't own some medical equipment needed for examinations the game will automatically have you send the patient to an external clinic to perform the test in your place. This will still grant bonuses and maluses according to the exam's true necessity albeit in a smaller amount. To do so every exam that required medical equipment has been modified to show the new conversation. The patient will also decrease his/her trust upon you since he/she will be disappointed that you lack equipment, although you won't lose any fame from this either.
* The Medical Board will now tell you if one particular examination was necessary or not and why. This has been removed by the exam review final part.
* Every patient will now recognize Mr. Xuan's agreement after you met him. The only exception for that are the "Tutorial Patients" (Rita, Clara, Paul)
* An exam review screen has been added after an examination has ended. This replaces the long list of explanations that was sometimes confusing.
  - End Exam's explanations for each examination made have been deleted. The medical explanations have been replaced by a comment by the Medical Board.

STORY:
* What happens in St. Mary's story arc is playable. To play the story you will need to have Rita's story play out until she asks you about joining Jos・ for massages. That can be achieved by spending time with her whenever it's possible.
Rita's path has also been integrated with Elisa's pregnancy story, so if you chose to let her know about the pregnancy she will react differently if the baby is yours or not, possibly disappearing completely from the game, thus saying farewell to the Doctor. The possibility of the Doctor to be Elisa's baby's father are listed in the "GENERAL" section of this changelog but requires you to follow Elisa path since Trip to Seattle Chapter.
Claudia (your relative) story also mixes with Rita's and after the "Netorare/Cuckold experience" she will ask you to join you at your place to discuss your mutual feelings. Beware that this part of the story is only available in Story mode and not in Vanilla Mode. Your choices in this part of the game could also cause Rita to go away from you forever.
This particular event isn't accessible via the "Skip to the Event" feature since it's tied to Rita's relationship and not to a game event.

* Chapter 10 events will now start in October and not before, regardless of the sequence of story actions made by the player. Before this change inconsistencies in the game's script could have happened, even though in very rare cases.
    
OTHER:
* The game will end on December 31st.

Known issues:
* "After-exam" sexy scenes for story mode are in development
* Nolan has no character box
* Stats review shows 1 girlfriend even if you have more
* New Clothes for Erika is still an in-development feature. I'm still thinking about it in the actual gameplay.
* Nolan's exam will be completely re-done in a future update
