The Repopulation’s latest alpha patch touches on inventory and optimization

    
8

It seems strange now, but five or six years ago, The Repopulation was a much-wanted Kickstarted MMORPG, with visual and design roots in sandboxes like Star Wars Galaxies. But of course, a few years after its successful Kickstarter, the game was yanked offline for over a year thanks to a brutal public contract dispute between the dev team and the Hero Engine host. When the dust settled, said engine host, Idea Fabrik, had taken over the game. Over the course of the last four years, however, updates have been marginal, and the game continues to linger in alpha, having fallen off most MMO players’ radars.

There is a pinch of good news for remaining testers, however, as Idea Fabrik has pushed out a fresh patch this week, increasing player and bank inventory, adding new recipes, and tweaking some holiday content.

“This update focuses on 1) the implementation of the new Container system and 2) the continued clean-up and optimization of existing content, and 3) the addition of new TGS art assets. We will not be adding new content until our system revamps are in place, but wish to improve the existing gameplay where possible. We have chosen to exclude notes such as spec changes, gloms being added, and other smaller changes that exist in multitudes. Instead, we want to concentrate on larger changes such as end results, new art, scripts etc.”

The Nopopulation. You know that MMO news is slow when MOP is reporting on a game with 1.9 average players and 7 peak players on Steam.

Is this game now just a way for Idea Fabrik to test and tinker with their engine? If it would be, that at least would explain why they keep it going

I was thinking the same as well.

But after so many years of SWTOR UI, I am not sure I could stand playing another game that had fundamentally the same UI.

Let it die, already.

By the time it could possibly release, it is going to be so far behind the curve that very few will likely want to invest money or time into playing it.
