The Repopulation improves island performance in its latest update

    
8

It’s fine if you add new things to your sandbox, but none of that will particularly matter if your game runs like butt. Ensuring that isn’t the case appears to be one of the primary focuses of the latest update to The Repopulation, which patched in a variety of performance improvements and optimizations.

Thanks to a number of bug reports and feedback points submitted by testers, players should experience some smoother gameplay in the form of crash fixes for several areas of the island, reduced file sizes, and a number of tweaks in order to increase LOD. There’s also been some fixes to scripts and changes to older quest dialogue and missions to fill out the island further.

Of course, there’s still lots of work to be done on The Repopulation, which moves towards an engine upgrade, which will effectively mean that there will be more frequent updates to the game moving forward. All of those details, along with more specifics on what was recently added, can be read in the patch notes and on the announcement post itself.

Everytime I see a post on here and even on there official forums and on steam several times I have asked for them to fix the UI issues associated with the settings menu. It’s been well over 2 years I have been asking for this. When I enter the settings menus it’s just a jumbled mess of text that I can make heads or tails of. So modifing the game settings is impossible. You would think this would be a main priority but apparently it is not. Now I’m not sure if this is because I have a 4k monitor or not and people using 1080p monitors are not affected by this glitch but regardless I have be able to change the display resolution but no no avail. So until that issue is resolved I won’t be playing repop. I have also been following the updates to the game since the takeover and it seems that what mostly being done is cutting out content and cleaning up code, no efforts are being made to make the UI simpler or clearner and more natural to use.

Every time I see any news about this game it’s salt in the wound. I tried to imagine what my reaction would be if they gave a launch date and the first thought that came to my mind was how dated the game would already be…

I actually respect that tenacity a little.

It’s sad but a respectable sad.

Hmm. Guess the same patch notes announcement caught our eye.

I’ve been waiting for awhile to get back in. Might be a good time for a little play testing to see how the changes are going.

Negativity is cheap and easy. I respect the effort that is still going into the game from the very small team. There’s enough there for me to invest a little of my own time.

This game missed it’s chance 7 or 8 years ago. It’s just sad now that they are still even trying.

I could type something out about Idea Fabrik right now. But instead I will put up a gif of Kermit doing an impression of me every day.

This game as 3.2 concurrent players over 30 days, and has been in EA for 5+.

Dead game is dead.

Still appreciate the time to write the article, Chris.
