Patch Notes
Register

It's been a long haul to our first Alpha 4 patch. The combination of Steam launch, holidays, and an extra long QA session resulted in our longest break between patches since Alpha 2. We do expect a much quicker turnaround for the 15.1.1 Patch which is likewise turning out to be a monster update and is already two weeks into development.

We will be doing away with our old Monthly Report system and instead moving to smaller reports with each major patch from this point onwards. This should allow us to get news out a bit more quickly to people, and will also help end confusion on which notes are live and which are for upcoming patches. Before we get to the build notes I wanted to take a moment to point out a couple of recent bits of news as as a result. The first is to point out the February edition of Indie Game Magazine which has a lengthy interview and preview of The Repopulation, as well as it being the cover feature. The second is a preview of the game in issue #81 of PLAY!. Last but not least a lot of players have been asking us when Silver Memberships will be opening back up for use. We had closed them prior to the start of Alpha 4 due to trying to control the population counts until we could get a patch under our belts. With that out of the way we will begin the process of opening them up on Steam and then reopening them on our own web site. Expect that to happen in the near future.


For now though let's take a look at the 14.12.1 build which will go live at 9AM on Tuesday, February 3rd. Before we get to the full build notes let's take a look at some of the highlights.

One of the concerns expressed by a number of players has been in regard to graphics, and we wanted to address that first. Where many titles focus on visuals first, gameplay second, we're the opposite. Our budget has grown steadily over time, but is still tiny in comparison to AAA studios. But the scope of this game is larger. At this stage of alpha, many things are still a work in progress. This build improves a number of areas graphically but you can expect similar refinements to continue from now until launch. So what areas saw improvement in this patch? Plymouth City saw the largest changes with texture and performance improvements to the city. This process will continue in 15.1.1 though, with more rooming and texture work. Freedomtown received smaller updates, primarily in the Candy Shop pub, but also in the performance department. We've also introduced a new auto-configuration system which will tweak your graphics settings when the introduction sequence is playing in the tutorial. Pre-existing players can run Auto-Config through the Video Options window.

The interface is another area that received quite a bit of work this patch. One of those areas was chat. New players no longer have access to general chat, instead having a Newbie channel for global chat. Once you reach 50 points in a skill you will gain access to General chat. There are quick commands for /n to nation chat or /trade to chat in the trade channel. You can now copy text out of the chat window, as well. This allows users who do not want to be bothered with newbie questions to filter it out. You can now purchase items in variable stack sizes from vendors, and vendor lists are now sorted alphabetically. The interface is another area that will be receiving significant improvements between now and launch, including giving users access to the XML files later in testing and a visual overhaul. You can expect continued improvements in this area in each patch.

Combat has been a concern among a number of players, and we'd be the first to admit it still isn't quite where we want it to be. The upcoming 15.1.1 build will be our Combat Megapatch, but a number of important changes also happened in 14.12.1. The largest of them was a bug in the global cooldown system which was causing significantly longer cooldown times than had been intended. Due to the nature of this bug it was not an issue which we could hot fix. This affected users of slower firing abilities more than those with faster firing ones, which made some lines far more susceptible to it than others. Melee has also gotten a reasonable boost all around. Damage Over Time effects, EMP based damage, Two Handed Weapons, and other areas have all received balance boosts. NPCs will also be more likely to assist nearby allies who fall under attack, be forewarned! Expect an even larger list of changes, including many new ability FX in 15.1.1.

Skill gain rates have also been also been a concern and received a balance pass. Combat skill gain rates have been sped up somewhat, and more importantly the effective differential between you and your target has been widened, allowing you to gain skills from a wider range of NPCs than was previously the case. Harvesting skill gain rates have been reduced slightly. Other areas have also received tweaks, in some cases significant ones.

As you probably know by now, The Repopulation's economy is crafter centric. One of the complaints that we've had is that the Trading systems need refinement though and we're working to remedy that situation. Much work has gone into the Auction and Work Order systems in this build, and you that will continue into the 15.1.1. The Work Order system has been vastly improved and we expect its usage to go up significantly moving forward. The trading interfaces are only part of the equation though, and we also spent a lot of time tweaking or fixing recipes, and balancing price ranges and costs.

Pets received a slew of improvements to bring them in line with our vision of them. The largest of these changes was in the form of a bug fix. Several types of pets were missing their default attack ability and were only using special attacks, which significantly decreased their expected damage output. Pets with ranged attacks were also attacking from quite a bit shorter range than they should have been, which was causing some line of sight issues.

Entertainers received a reasonable boost in this build with the effectiveness of their buffs being improved, as well as the lengths being increased. We found a bug in the Contested areas which was making a number of areas in Fal Sept, Mount Ash, Kaavo and Tralus Plains which were intended to be contested being treated as though they were protected territory. So tread carefully when running around the contested regions. Audio received a number of improvements, including environmental, footstep, combat, and music improvements. Quite a few housing improvements were made and over 135 new housing items made it into the game. Content work in general continues with many additions all around including some lengthy missions and external area affecting engagements. Points of Intrigue will also play a larger role in the generated camp systems.

Despite all these additions the largest changes by far are in the form of bug fixes, and there are many. Our testers have been doing a stellar job of reporting these and we'll continue knock them out over time. But enough of our rambling. Let's get to the build notes.

Adversarial Camps

  • Increased the chances of Points of Intrigue to spawn.
  • Adjusted adversarial camps to fix a problem where sometimes camps were growing beyond the difficulty that was intended for them.
  • Made a number of adjustments to the Adversarial Camps in the Northern Range. They spawn further away from the roads, are fewer in numbers, and are slightly easier than was previously the case.
  • Added new adversarial camp spawning sets which will spawn tough mobs but small numbers.

 

AI

 

 

 

  • More NPCs will assist nearby allies when attacked.
  • NPCs will no longer stop patrolling or moving around if they exited an Assist state early.

 

 

 

Auctions and Work Orders

 

 

 

  • The Work Order Fulfill window now has a Search button, that will display a list of all active work orders (but not your own). To fulfill a work order, you will still need to place a matching item into the container on the left side of the window, and then click on one of the listed orders to enable and use the "Fulfill" button. (Expect more improvements to the Work Order system in the near future.)
  • Many improvements were made to the Fulfill window for work orders. You can now search for active orders by item name, component type, and/or filter type. The resulting list of items includes the requested grade, attributes (if any) and time before the work order expires.
  • Added the ability to post work orders with multiple quantities. These work orders can be fulfilled by placing a single grade stack of crafting components, into the fulfillment container of the Trading window. Select a matching row in the work order list, and click "Fulfill" to complete the transaction.
  • The Request Panel for Work Orders no longer resets after submitting a request, to allow you to quickly submit another similar request.
  • The ToAuction now places a sliding value on grades when placing them in the auction house (still a set value for the item, but the auctions are now on a a sliding value). The B and A grade items that are To Auctioned are no longer placed on the auction.
  • Auction search list now includes unit prices for items, when the stack quantity is greater than 1.
  • Added a list of "My Work Orders" to the Request tab of the Work Order / Auction House window.
  • The name search in the Auction Interface no longer clears out when you hit enter.
  • Added ability to filter the search for open work orders, by item name.
  • ToAuction value reduced from 25% to 20%.
  • Pressing , in the "Name" field of the Auction House search tab, now executes the search, same as clicking the "Search" button.
  • Remove the 2x bid/buyout rule, it is now that bid cannot be equal or greater than buyout.
  • Fixed a bug which was not returning bids on a buyout.

 

 

 

Audio

 

 

 

  • Music volume now defaults to being lower volume.
  • Automatic music switching between combat and non-combat is now turned off by default. You can toggle it at any time in the Audio Settings.
  • Reduced the distance at which combat sounds from the Training Grounds can be heard.
  • Added a new mysterious music track from Matthew Shine.
  • Added new sounds when you toggle abilities on or off.
  • Added new sound effects to Bandage Wound.
  • Added new jumping and landing sound effects which can adjust based on environment.
  • Added in a series of new footstep sounds.
  • Added new sound effects to certain abilities.
  • Added new interior soundscapes from Clyde Shorey. These are used in the tutorial instances and at the labs.
  • Added environmental and man made sound effects to the tutorial instances.
  • Female models once again feature footsteps.
  • Mechs and large robots have new sound effects.
  • Added two new ambient background tracks from Clyde Shorey.
  • Added new teleportation sound effects.
  • Mechs and robots have new footstep sounds.
  • The Training Grounds now have different outdoor footstep sounds than the indoor parts.

 

 

 

Combat

 

 

 

  • Your ability queue is now cleared after killing your target. If you have Auto Find Targets enabled your next ability will still automatically select a target, but it won't happen from the queue.
  • Tweaked how NPC aggro works when one of a mobs targets is killed. This prevents an issue which previously would sometimes cause an NPC to kill a pet or a player and then run away and heal as though disengaged.
  • Buffs and debuffs now have an increased chance of success when using a two handed weapon.
  • Made some adjustments to how Global Cooldown worked. This was erroneously giving a larger cooldown length than was intended in many cases.
  • Melee attacks now consume less endurance.
  • Melee weapon damage was boosted by 10%.
  • Increased the damage of Bleeding and Burning attacks.
  • EMP weapon damage was increased by 10%.
  • Burning Attacks can now stack up to 5 times, increasing flame thrower effectiveness in groups.
  • Electricity based weapons are now more effective against standard targets than was previously the case.
  • Electro-magnetic resistances now scale properly on NPCs and take armor type into account.
  • Adjusted the skill gain/effective level to scale properly with the different tiers of skill (was a flat divide before). This will have the adverse effect (good or bad) of making it much harder to gain skill points on very low level npcs as the player effective level increases much quicker now.
  • Rolling or performing special abilities will now break stealth.
  • Death messages are now printed in combat logs. This is primarily to make parsing of fights easier.
  • Reduced NPC (not pet) to player healing significantly.
  • Corrected an issue which was preventing fear effects from applying properly.

 

 

 

Engagements

 

 

 

  • Improved our internal tools for Engagements to make it easier for the content team to produce advanced engagements more quickly.
  • Added a new tweakable setting to engagements to allow their spawn rates to globally be decreased or increased. This will make it easier for us to adjust spawn rates from a single place.
  • You should no longer receive generic success or failure messages for engagements unless you have contributed to that engagement in some manner.
  • New Engagement, "Mercenary Camp at Elkar Wood".
  • New Engagement: "Water Tanks Reinforcement" at Thicket Overwatch.
  • New Engagement: "Bombs at Thicket Overwatch".
  • New Engagement: "Water Tanks Repair" in Elkar Wood.

  • New Engagement: "Freedomtown Need Resources" at Twin Falls.
  • New Engagement: "Freedomtown Need Resources" at Arboleda.
  • Updated Thicket Overwatch engagements, paths, mobspawns, models and fx to match graphical upgrades.
  • Lesoo Raid on the Shed: Roughly doubled the time from the engagement to trigger again after completion, since it was restarting a bit too frequently.
  • Improved "Propaganda?" engagement at Plymouth City.
  • The Picking Up the Pieces engagement through one of the Ammann Village Forks has had it's requirement changed from Wood Beams to Maypuri Planks. Maypuri is common near the village.
  • Minor tweaks to engagements at Boglands Area.
  • Made numerous adjustments to the Chromite Shortage engagement and Yeoman Stingel in Freedomtown to prevent some problems with the engagement, and keep it around a little longer on average.
  • Some work done with manned cannons at Thicket Overwatch, place some platforms to deploy them more efficiently.
  • The Building Barricades engagement at the Aemar Hydro Plant now requires Saverous Blocks rather than wood boards. Those can be found locally.
  • Added Marker decorator and a path to point to it to "Mercenaries at Elkar Wood" engagement so it displays more accurate position in map.
  • Removed the upwards scaling of Bombs in the City, Propaganda, and Cleaning Up in the Aftermath to bring them more in line with the Freedomtown starting city engagements.
  • Slightly moved 2 hidden bombs at Plymouth City that where half buried in walls.
  • Made some adjustments to Lesoo Raid at The Shed. Added a Personal Turret to help on defense.
  • Improved "Bombs In City" engagement.

  • Added Repair Bots to "Water Tanks Reinforcement" and "Water Tanks Repairs" engagements.
  • Improved internal engagement debugging tools.

 

 

 

Graphics

 

 

 

  • We've introduced a new Auto-configuration system for video settings. This will attempt to configure your video settings automatically when you create your first character, while watching the introduction sequence. Pre-existing characters can have it run this from the video options. This system will start your video card in low settings and then run through a checklist, adding various features and checking their effect on your cards performance. It should be noted this tweaks based on your current location, so if you run it in a low performing area it will adjust it for the best performance/quality trade off in that area.
  • Updated many of the textures in Plymouth City to use new higher resolution textures. This process will continue into 15.1.1 on the buildings which didn't quite make it in time for this build.
  • Enabled eye coloring on the character creation screen for both male and female.
  • Added 152 new ability icons.
  • Made adjustments to initial graphics settings to improve the default quality.
  • Made adjustments to the default dynamic shadow update rate to reduce swimming artifacts. Existing users can tweak these settings by sliding the shadow update rate bar in Video Options. The further the bar is to the right, the less often shadows will update which will remove or reduce swimming artifacts.
  • Made adjustments to the Heightmap LOD default settings. This will kick in if you Auto Configure your video card.
  • Added ambient occlusion to multiple armor sets.
  • Added ambient occlusion to the male and female skin textures.
  • Added ambient occlusion to Maintenance Bots.

Housing

 

 

 

  • Properly added rotation awareness to furniture marked you can sit down on. This allows them to be rotated and seated on properly now.
  • Buildings now can be marked separate of the rest of the structures so they show up in their own panel. The vendor and plot also have their own panel so they aren't mixed in with the rest of other structures.
  • Most of the building structures are now marked as buildings. A few dragged into the housing system as well there were in the nation system and were ok to add to housing.
  • Added a bunch of new structures including 13 Beds, 6 Cabinets, 4 Benches, 2 Chairs, 22 Shelves, 16 Lockers, 1 Table, 13 "Grate" Walls, 3 Crafting Station Alternatives, 6 Signs, 11 Terminals, 1 Laptop, 1 Tablet, 23 "Barricade Walls', OWON banner, 2 Tents, 2 "Industrial" buildings, 4 "Unit" buildings, and 6 "Sci-fi" Buildings.

  • Increased the ceiling height of the city region in Ravine Fal.
  • Fixed an issue with the housing trigger now popping up the housing window in the instance housing.

 

 

 

Inquiries

 

 

 

  • Plymouth Contol: if you have questions about your career choices in Plymouth Control, you may want to inquiry Iona Amato, PlyCon Human Resources Officer, about the subject.
  • The Sevens, northwest Timbertol: if inquired, Landon Reeves will share with you a bit about the burden of managing a small robot-testing base with a small budget and a bunch of big egos.
  • The Sevens, northwest Timbertol: if inquired, Sept Falls trader William Foster may talk about why he left Plymouth, who mentored Zora Labelle, and why Stevan Weaver doesn't readily agree that markets and competition are a good mix.
  • The Sevens, northwest Timbertol: if she woke up in a good mood, Dr. Zora Labelle will tell you about what's going on in Bunkers III and IV, how Landon Reeves got his job, and discuss her pet Homo Dius theory. Good luck with her confirming if she really is the oldest mnemosyne in the base, though.
  • The Sevens, northwest Timbertol: if you promise not to laugh, Rachael Flynn will share how she went from palette scripter at Studio 42 in Plymouth to visual crypsis consultant at The Sevens, why she prefers Council over Creds, and how to face the fact that war never changes.
  • Updated inquiries for Mitchell's Farm.
  • The Sevens, northwest Timbertol: wise man told Stevan Weaver "go west", so he did. He'll probably caution you on how to share a beer with William Foster, what Landon Reeves' name means, and who in the base may be a Penta, if rumors are true.
  • Improved the directions to Grace Binkley if you inquire about her with other NPCs.
  • The Sevens, northwest Timbertol: any lab test you can walk away from is a good lab test. Jared Nebel knows most people forget about the "walk away" part, as much as they forget that thrule bots should be clever enough to do our biding, but dumb enough to not know any better.
  • The Sevens, northwest Timbertol: the bots running around the Seven's test tracks are Tyson Waine's cubs. He'll be more than willing to tell you why he is so proud of them, why he will be even prouder of their cousins, and why they will change Rhyldan forever.
  • Added several new inquiries to Sept Falls.

 

 

 

Items and Fittings

 

 

 

  • Added a new Stun Module fitting type which can be obtained as a rare drop or mission reward. This item grants 7 charges of an unresistable stun effect. It is still subject to immunity timers, however. This fitting can be equipped in either the primary or secondary slot, on both weapons and shields.
  • Introduced a new Specue Medical Scanner. These scanners have been adjusted to heal more effectively, but are less effective as weapons. This weapon can only be obtained as a mob drop, engagement or mission reward.
  • Added new hand wraps which can be used in Unarmed Combat while providing fitting slots. They are more effective than the hand blades against heavier armors, but less effective vs. lighter ones.
  • Added additional loot and loot chances to numerous types of missions, engagements, random NPCs, and bosses.
  • Added rare new drop only fittings.
  • New book (a song) "Kalinka, by Jutz Klanger"; will give the first reader a small, permanent bonus to Entertainment Skill.
  • All items were changed to a default stack size of 1 to avoid confusion as you can now purchase stack quantities.
  • Flagged numerous weapons that were not previously flagged as two handed to be marked as such.
  • Added Ram Pin Patterns to Crafting Supplies and Firearms vendors.
  • Animal Fat sell price reduced from 40 to 10 credits.
  • Reduced the endurance cost of melee weapons.
  • Removed the ability to drag a fitting from one item to another while equipped, as it isn't properly supported.
  • We have temporarily removed Lesoo Disguises. If you use these disguises it will currently disguise you as a human instead. This is due to a bug which was could cause players to lose their normal appearance after removing the disguise.

 

 

 

Minigames

 

 

 

  • New Engagement/Minigame: "Water Tanks on Fire" at Thicket Overwatch.
  • Light adjustments to fishing minigame locations near Twin Falls.

 

 

 

Miscellaneous

 

 

 

  • Added a new launcher for the Steam based client. It can handle common issues such as patching, and repairing broken caches. This is a stopgap solution until a more full featured launcher/patcher system is available for both clients.
  • Players now receive training points when bringing a skill to 50 points, as well as the previous 500, 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000 and 6000 bonuses.
  • The Tiq Sennu prison has opened for business. Players who violate policies will be sent directly to jail for a timeout.
  • Placed in some simple anti-spam protection for in-game mail systems. This will be improved over time.
  • Reduced the kill requirements on Slayer Achievements.

  • There is now a stricter client side name validation before you reach the server side validation.
  • 3 letter single name characters are now supported.
  • Character names can no longer have a gm in the name unless it is a valid GM.
  • Pressing escape when the death window is open will now take you to the first cloning point in the list as well as closing down the window.
  • Improved our reserved names code for historical names.
  • Added a new achievement which players will receive when they raise their first skill to 50. Existing characters can gain this by raising any new skill to 50. This achievement will not only grant a title, but also unlocks General chat.
  • Improved the description and reward of the Delivery to Koleyna static mission.
  • Cleaned up some of the console debug output.
  • Made adjustments to the cloning points available in Oasis Approach and parts of southern Aza.
  • The dive/roll tip now informs the player how to use the period key when holding a direction first, rather than as an also can.

  • New FPR combat mission "Axe the Cause". While you're out there in Twin Falls dealing with Riffraff problem, keep a eye out for an Axemaster: he may be the one giving them orders.
  • New Scorched Gorge Outpost."Prion Scion". This mission is part of a series and is only available if you took certain actions during the mission "So, You Watched a Man Die...". Speak to Dr Mercer in Scorched Gorge Outpost to find out how to deal with a possible prion infection.
  • New Mission "Resources for Freedomtown Needed" tied to "Freedomtown Need Resources" engagement.
  • Sapless Mesa: new mission "Hokfig Water". Phil Jenkins will pay you to scan some rock formations; will pay you double if you find water. Missions uses both random rolls and skill rolls.
  • New FPR combat mission in Brenning, "Large and in Charge". A Large Arvorr has been spotted near your location in Brenning. Make sure your squad removes it.

  • New Mission "Resources for Freedomtown Needed" tied to "Freedomtown Need Resources" engagement at Arboleda.
  • Thicket Overwatch: Inquiry Mission "Brewen's Biography". Ask Sgt Brewen about himself.

  • New Mission in Plymouth - Weapons materials required - Alumerite. We always need more weapons.
  • New FPR combat mission in Brenning, "Desert Foragers". Defense wants no help from Hunting; and specially not from Gwen Oulopathis.
  • Converted mission "Ask Brewen" from a static mission to an inquiry mission. You will now need to use the inquiry system to find out more about Sgt Brewen. This mission is part of a series and requires you to have completed "Brewen's Murky Past".
  • New Mission "Calibrite for Repairs Needed" tied to "Water Tanks Repair" engagement.
  • New Thicket Overwatch Mission."So, You Watched a Man Die...". This mission is part of series and is only available if you took certain actions during the mission "Urgent Equipment Recovery". Eva Hahne in Thicket Overwatch hears about what happens and wants to reward you...

  • Plymouth Contol: report to Officer Dayton for further missions with Community Protection.
  • Plymouth Contol: if you have the time, Iona Amato, the Human Resources Officer for Plymouth Control, will explain in detail the different OWON Departments you could get a job with. This is the starting mission in what we plan to be a rather lenghty chain of introductory missions.
  • The ten "Armorsmith Supplies Wanted" crafting missions have been reworded and amended so that they offer skill imprints (SI) for trade skills instead of credits.
    This is to address the issue with offering varying amounts of credits depending on the number of goals completed and with the fact that the credit reward almost certainly does not reflect the value of the crafting components handed in for the mission.
  • New FPR combat mission "Clear the Woods". There are three problems in Tandil: drakes, drakes, and more drakes.
  • Plymouth Contol: report to Officer Shin for further missions with Science.

  • Reduced the credit rewards on engagement turn in missions but added miscellaneous crafted items into the reward table. The big reward on these engagement was intended to be the top performer rewards on completion, not the individual turn ins.
  • Missions are now able to reward players with random fittings. These fittings are different from crafting fittings and of low quality. They are generally available from missions of medium complexity or difficulty. This reward type was added to numerous different generated mission templates. Players shouldn't expect to see a ton of these, but you will earn them from time to time.
  • New FPR combat mission "Mating Season": There is particularly aggressive Large Hokfig Bull in Koywe which Gwen Oulopathis needs removed.
  • New FPR combat mission "Champion of the Desert": Gwen will throw in something extra if your team, while hunting the Scaed'ecoos in Ollaseca, can also take down their Champion.

  • New FPR combat mission "On the Loose!": There are reports of a Mutated Raxin on the loose in Ollaseca. This requires the attention of your group.
  • New Plymouth mission: "A Love of Lilac". Help Anna Kelly with jobs she needs doing for the bakery.
  • New FPR combat mission "No Right": What gives the Lesoo the right to hunt in Koywe? Drive those savages out!
  • New FPR combat mission, "Stay Out of Our Way." The Lesoo in Bald Forest have clearly not learned that they need to stay away from FPR territory.
  • New Inquiry Mission in Sept Falls "Ask Azreyella About Sgt Brewens Past". Will you? (This mission is part of a series and requires you to have completed "Brewen's Murky Past".)
  • New FPR combat missions "Finish the Figs": Prove to Gwen Oulopathis that she can count you among the best hunters in the FPR by killing Hokfig in Twin Hills.
  • Improved the rewards and increased the tier of the Clear the Lesoo Traps mission.
  • New FPR combat mission "The Other Half". Those fools from Defense don't seems to realize that killing the Lesoo only solve half the problem we have with them - you need to eliminate their pets as well.
  • New mission in Plymouth, "A Covert Caper": following "Undercover Antics", Judith Parker needs your discrete services.
  • New FPR combat mission "No Bull About It". Killing Twin Hill's Large Hokfig Bull would be a noteworthy undertaking...
  • New FPR combat mission, "The Master and the Doctor". The Lesoo in Bald Forest are being commanded by a Rhinoc Master and a Witch-Doctor. Eliminate them so the military can concentrate on the war with OWON.
