The Repopulation overhauls entertainer system

Real men and women know that there is true strength and dignity in getting down and boogying around the dance floor. Real players know that there are great buffs to be achieved from doing the same in-game, especially in The Repopulation.

The sci-fi sandbox’s 15.7.2 patch hit today and with it a “complete overhaul” of the entertainer system. Players can now enjoy a fluid series of minigames that chain together tales, dance, and music to create powerful buffs. The patch also tweaked auto-correction in combat to be more lenient, made it easier for tanks to hold aggro, introduced a constested cluster system for PvP, and improved the ability to track certain NPCs.

The Repopulation’s rapid patch schedule will not abate, as the next major update will release in two weeks with several combat improvements, a capture-the-flag mode, and a revamped siege system.

toomanywowclones Have you had personal involvements with those said tweaks?  Or, are you reading the patch notes?  I’m most interested in the combat and animations.

cald Skyewauker Thats not really an excuse.  They have veteran guys on their staff.  They arent all straight out of design school.  This game could have been so much better if they worried more about the graphics , animations, movement first.  Thats my opinion of course.

c71clark Skyewauker Pretty sure it is the Hero Engine.  Look at SWTOR  though.  Same engine, looks loads better.  I messed up when I said engine.  Its art assets.

Skyewauker ToyFuzion Same here. Honestly, I like the graphics in the SWG EMU better than Repop. And that’s over a decade old! ANother game in this boat is A Tale in the Desert. A very cool crafting/social/political game using horrible graphics from 15 years ago. If they put in something modern, I would be over there in a heartbeat!

Skyewauker The graphics are fine for an idie developed game.. sure they still need work and that will happen over time.. hell things have improved quite a bit since they first started testing.

Polyanna its still in testing.. some people got the game thinknig they could just play and have fun.. they then realised it really was a beta test and stopped playing.. The people left over are the ones who really want to test and find bugs.
if you want a game to play then best wait for release.. if you want to help test then.. sure its worth getting.
