Ambitious sandbox MMORPG The Repopulation got a healthy dose of modifications in November, as detailed by lead developer Joshua Hall in a lengthy update list. There’s a big callout for new Structure Placement UI that gives players lots more options for placing, rotating, and resizing their decor. Seeing as how the game will revolve around player-created cities, that’s a big deal.

A new calendar system will allow devs to better schedule events, and a new diplomacy skill lets you “hug it out” with NPCs to figure out their problems and how you can best solve them — probably with a murderous impulse.

But let’s not ignore the most important addition to the game:

Added a new readable book: Cold Silver, which is a philosphical look at the notion of clones. This book will grant the first person who reads it a small boost to their Entertainment skill.

So you read about the philosophy of clones, and that makes you a better entertainer? How? By incorporating clone jokes into your standup routine?

“When the man found his clone copy, he was so angry!” “How angry was he?” “He was beside himself!”

Currently in early alpha (though you can become an early adopter), is The Repopulation — preferably without bad clone jokes — something you’re looking forward to?

  1. why in a world every first comment of every article on this site has to be mounted,this is getting so old that you should add mammoth to it,mean no hate but cmon,we should all get of it,not funny anymore,extinct long time ago

  2. I was interested, but the game is taking so long with no real information I’ve sort of lost interest. It’s unfortunate, and I understand good things take time, but its kinda hard to keep pumped up about something when it won’t be ready anytime soon and you have no idea when it will be.
