The Repopulation is a Sci-Fi Sandpark MMORPG by Above and Beyond Technologies. You begin your adventure as a second generation clone colonist on the planet of Rhyldan, with mankind on the verge of extinction, and in the midst of a civil war.

We are looking to deliver the sandbox/themepark hybrid experience that many players enjoyed in games like Ultima Online and Pre-NG Star Wars Galaxies. We are going to deliver these key features.

  • Heavy emphasis on generated and player created content.
  • Nation based warfare not only provides Realm vs. Realm but also allows players to create their own Nations (an advanced form of guild) which is in essence an independent Realm.
  • Engagement system provides a form of Random Mutating Public Quests which can occur randomly throughout the world, mutate into new stages and spread to other nodes. As a result areas will be less static, and constantly changing based on how players react to these engagements.
  • Player created cities which can not only include housing but many advanced structure types such as Walls, Turrets, Barracks, and more. These cities can be besieged and conquered by rival Nations.
  • Skills based gameplay with a Tiered approach. Each of the hundred skills essentially has it's own set of 15 levels with rewards for progression along the way.
  • Advanced generated mission system allows quests to be tailored for a player, and for those templates to be reused throughout the world. This will ensure that players have a nonstop supply of missions, and allows us to produce content quicker and more efficiently than hand-designing each individual quest. Our generated missions can be full blown epic quests with many parts, but generated elements and NPCs.
  • Advanced vehicle system that features vehicle vs. vehicle combat in addition to being used as fast transport.
  • Gameplay elements that allow players to play the game with minimal combat exposure through crafting, nation building, pets, vehicles, and other systems.
  • Progression formulated to allow players to get in the game quickly and play with others regardless of hours played while still retaining elements that attract players who wish to be the best at something.
  • A unique science fiction setting which will allow us to expand the universe in the future and provide additional gameplay types through expansions. We've placed a lot of effort into not only planning the initial launch, but in looking to the future and a long prosperous lifespan for the title.

SOURCE: Therepopulation.com

With the wild ride that was March behind us, we have a chance to reflect the month that was and to look ahead to April. We had originally planned on launching Alpha 3 on March 28th, but the new server hardware required for this update arrived late (just yesterday), causing us to push the start back slightly. Our preparations for it though resulted in one of our busiest months ever from a development standpoint. Before we look ahead to the start of Alpha 3 let's first take a look back on the changes made to the game in March.

We spent a lot of time working on the User Interface as we continue to streamline it and make it easier to use. You can move some frames which previously were locked into place, such as the status and target bars. There are new ease of use options for abilities, and an on-deck ability system is now supported. Abilities will now grey out if you can not use them with your currently equipped weapon, as well. For complete details on the interface changes see the User Interface notes below.

Trade skills are a pretty massive part of our economy and we focused heavily on them in the latter stages of the month. You can now create all of the armor shells in the game through the Armor Crafting skill, with some new armor sets being introduced. Vehicle Engineering and Disguise Creation are also now functional, and there are an assortment of new recipes and results in many other lines.

Speaking of Disguise, that system received a significant level of updates this month. You can now disguise as non-human species. There is a greater variety and level of customization in the types of disguises you can don, and the system is just working much better all around. Entertainer types may enjoy a new interactive music system which was implemented which allows you to play instrument notes which can be heard by nearby players. This system is still in its infancy and we expect it to grow and improve in the coming months. Pets also received a slew of updates and now feature improved pathing, and new variations of pets. We also spent time on smoothening out the transitions for tamers, so that they have a steady rise on the types of animals they can tame.

A heavy focus was also placed on the mission system this month. We added a ton of new mission templates this month, which should provide players with a lot more variety in Alpha 3. Our mission team has really begun to move full steam and you can expect to see a lot of improvements there moving forward. Feature wise, missions were also improved. Arch-rivals and Allies are now tracked on a per character basis. This allows for NPCs to remember players better and to use their relationship with that player as a filter for generating new opportunities. We also made numerous improvements on how Missions and Achievements interact. Missions can now add and remove achievements through any action, and they can hide these changes from players.

We then had some additions which were targeted directly at what will soon be a flood of new players. The Repopulation is not a game which is heavy on instancing, but in some cases such as the Training Grounds or certain mission instances, it is a necesity. We spent a lot of time this month improving our instancing support. The Training Grounds can now automatically spin up new instances when they reach a certain threshold of players. Engagements also now support instancing.

Hero Engine also released a major patch this month which brought a ton of great changes on the final week of the month. We took several days and upgraded a number of areas to take advantage of those features. They have allowed us to improve our weather effects, and fixed some perceived latency issues that were caused by a timer mismatch issue. Unfortunately they also introduced a physics bug which is currently being investigated, which has prevented us from pushing these changes to the alpha server at this point. Those changes will be coming very soon though.

This brings us to the big question, when will Alpha 3 begin and what can we expect from April? First and foremost is Alpha 3, which will be starting soon. The physics issue will need to be resolved, and we need to work out the best schedule due to PAX East next week, but keep an eye on your mailbox (and spam folder) as we'll be sending out keys and instructions as soon as we have this all finalized. On a sidenote if you are a backer and have not yet confirmed your pledge, you should also be keeping an eye out on the mailbox, as we will be sending a fresh batch of confirmation emails to those who have not yet confirmed their web site account within the next few days, as well. You need to click on those confirmation links as it is how we associate your forum account with pledges which were made in the Kickstarter campaign, and is necessary for testing access. If you have any questions or did not receive a confirmation email when you purchased a pledge please contact us atsupport@therepopulation.com and we will try to get to the bottom of it. When we send out invites for Alpha 3 it will be from confirmed pledges so please make sure you have validated your purchase.We will not have a booth at PAX East this year with testing being our priority, but Joshua Halls will be in attendance and has numerous things lined up for it. If anyone would like to schedule any meetings with him please drop us an email atleads@therepopulation.com and he can try to work it in.

If there is a silver lining to the hardware delay, it's that it gave us a couple of weeks of extra time to cram in new content, and we've already have a massive slew of additions over the first few days of this month. This includes a slew of trade skill additions to Artillery, Culinary Arts, and other lines, and some significant improvements to how the game handles in high latency situations. We're really looking forward to getting all of the new testers in game very soon. Keep an eye on those mailboxes, it's going to be a fun (but stressful) month for the game. And now, to the build notes...

Their presence eventually will attract the attention of the Lurkers in the area and the engagement will turn to a more combat oriented endeavor.
  • Engagements which feature fire will now show a visual effect when players douse the flames.
  • The escalating Lesoo engagements in Falls Trail now feature a larger camp setting in latter stages.

  • The escort engagement in Plymouth Control Center is functional again.
  • Adjusted terrorist pathing in the Bombs in the City engagement so the terrorists can take cover.
  • The bomb squad during Bombs in the City will now rush to position from their stations. To add some flavor, one of the Bomb Squad will now go rogue and attempt to breach their defenses in his rage, which will initiate a battle at city hall.
  • The engagements which were previously at Mitchell's Farm have been readjusted to fit the new setting at The Shacks.
