OP  12/01/12 2:45:24 AM#1

Not posted yet that I can see. November patch notes are out: http://therepopulation.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=286:end-of-november-2012-update&catid=61:new-frontpage-news&Itemid=428

Abilities and Effects

  • Added "Cooties" support to effects. This name of course comes from the children's game where kids will tap one another to spread the cooties, and then quickly try to get rid of it. How it works in Repop is certain abilities can be marked to be transferred to other players either through you killing them or them killing you. Not all effects are spread in the same way. This allows us to create a variety of new abilities or effects which were not previously possible. For example we can have NPCs who spread a virus (think 28 Days Later) to their victims, or it could be used for Capture the Flag type or King of the Hill type effects, where you can kill a player or NPC to take control of the effect.
  • Added the tier 1 Trap Knowledge ability: Disarm Trap. There is a new tutorial in each of the Training Facilities which will reward the ability. Disarm Trap allows you to disable traps. If you fail to disarm the trap, you may set it off, however. So be careful.
  • Added a new Entertainment skill line and many abilities which are associated with it. These are documented in the Entertainment section however, to make it easier to read.
  • The Set Up Camp ability will now create a social/resting location near the camp, in addition to its regeneration bonuses. This allows Entertainment abilities to be used when inside of the camp.
  • The following abilities and/or combat effects have new icons: Catch Breath, Turn the Tide, Air Strike, Setlang Trap, Defend Yourself, Guard, Make Peace, Set Bone in Place, Vaccinate Area, Advanced Nano-Vaccine, Nano-Vaccine, Nano-Regen, Nano-Stitch, Medical Scan, Med Scan Area, Ranged Medical Scan, Advanced Medical Scan, Rapid Scan, Teleport: Freedomtown, and Teleport: Plymouth City.
  • New energy shield FX (Energy Shield Mod 1)
  • Optimized the combat effect (buff/debuff) code.
  • Some abilities can now be marked to not produce Training Cards.


Combat
 

  • Weapon and Armor Penetration values are now percentage based, and NPCs have also been adjusted to bring them in line with these changes.
  • Integrated an improved muzzle system for ranged weapons. This system allows us to present more accurate firing FX.
  • Added a new impact animation for Rifles.
  • The client side Action Mode weapon FX now respect your weapon's speed.
  • Tab targeting should no longer target corpses.
  • Character energy shield effects are now properly displayed to nearby players.
  • Fixed a bug where weapon accuracy was not set on login for new characters.
  • Improved Unarmed combat support in Action Mode.
  • Parry, Dodge and Block animations should no longer hold you still in place.
  • Fixed a bug where weapon accuracy values were not being set if you swapped items.
  • Fixed the action mode bug where you could not hit enemies at all under some circumstances.
  • Corrected an issue with the animations when walking backwards while firing a rifle.
  • Fixed an issue where the combat method type (rifle, handgun, etc) wasn't being pushed unless going into combat mode on the npc/pc.
  • Fixed a bug related to disengaging from combat.


Crafting and Harvesting
 

  • Harvestable Props will now only be highlightable if you have sufficient harvesting skill to use them. Otherwise they will appear as non-interactive decorations.
  • Abandoned Bundles can now be found in the revamped Plymouth areas.
  • Yellow Poxies are now available near Plymouth City.
  • Harvestable Regions should no longer try to spawn resources if the Harvestable Region is marked as deleted.
  • Lesapen Fruit can now be harvested near of Fort Hudson.
  • The area near Ammann now supports Kosha resources.
  • Added a new Calibrite region just outside of the Tikt Tunnels.
  • You can now receive generated crafting missions even when in the Training Facilities.
  • New Fish nodes are available near the water basin in Plymouth.
  • Added new Coal, Fish and Yellow Poxy nodes near Koleyna.
  • Corrected an issue with Blue Poxy harvested resources.
  • Numerous recipes have seen adjustments. .


Dens
 

  • Introduced support for spawning additional waves based on players clearing the previous wave. This is the opposite of the default functionality of Dens, where waves are spawned based on time, and stop spawning if you can trim the numbers. This functionality an be used for events similar to the ring events in EQ 1 where each wave becomes more challenging than the last.
  • Dens now support Day and Night spawns. In the future we will also be adding seasonal support.
  • Added a dozen new den types and scattered them across the world. Most den types can support multiple types of mobs, and the types themselves are generally a reflection of the spawning rules (Day/Night, Number of Waves, Mobs Required, Spawn Style, etc).
  • Fixed a bug that was causing Dens to only work until the Den had already ticked once. This meant that first player to enter into a den region would never be able to spawn a Den previously, but it has now been resolved.


Engagements
 

  •  Nation-specific engagements are now fully supported. This includes support for three way engagements (FPR, OWON, Rogue) with each of them being able to affect the outcome of the others (optionally).
  • Added support for "Cooties" effects. See the Abilities and Effects section for details on what this is. Engagements can mark certain effects as being engagement specific so that they can remove their effects when they are over, and can have goals which are completed or influenced by them.
  • Engagements now support PvP goals and bonus goals.
  • Added a new Recovering the Wreckage engagement. This engagement is faction specific and PvP oriented. An experimental OWON aircraft has been downed in the area and the factions are scrambling to retrieve the parts. OWON is seeking to keep them out of the FPR hands, and FPR wants to reverse engineer them. Players must find these parts and then drag them to a faction specific drop ship at a Landing Zone in the area. This is easier than it sounds, because the parts are very heavy and your movement and defenses will suffer greatly while dragging them. If you should be killed, the players who killed you will gain control of the part.
  • Engagement Auto-grouping is now faction specific, meaning OWON players won't be auto-grouped with FPR players.
  • Added voice font support to the following engagements: Ambushed by Bandits, Simulated Warfare (OWON and FPR), and Are Those Commandos?
  • Added the first wave of FPR based engagements.
  • Fixed a bug that was causing engagement counters to not properly advance in some rare cases. This would bug out the engagement and make it incompletable until it timed out.


Entertainment
 

  • Added a new skill: Entertainment. Like with most skills, this is available to all characters and reflects your ability to entertain other players through acting, dancing, playing music, manipulating crowds or other means.The mechanics for this line are described below.
  • Entertainment abilities need to be used in social or resting areas in order to grant their buffs. If used outside of those areas you will simply play the FX and nothing positive will happen. Pubs, bars, and other places such as town squares can be marked as social areas.
  • Player created camps will create their own social/resting area and allow players to use these abilities when outside of the cities.
  • Entertainment abilities work through a combination system. There are some baseline recurring abilities, as well as special moves. Special moves work using the Openings system, and allow players to work together to chain together a wide array of buffs for fellow players in the area. Some of these buffs are stackable, and others are not. The system is designed so that multiple entertainers will give better results, especially if they work together in forming the more advanced move chains. Entertainment buffs are not overpowering, but are long lasting and can provide a small advantage in combat for those who take time out for some rest and relaxation.
  • Added the tier 1 Entertainment Ability: Dance Step. This is a toggleable dance step that can be left on for long durations. While active it will increase the health and endurance regeneration of nearby players. More importantly though it is an opener that will enhance other special entertainment moves.
  • Added the tier 1 Entertainment ability: Tale. This ability starts a story. For the next 15 seconds either the player or other players can continue the tell by splitting it down a branch with a new twist.
  • Added the tier 1 Entertainment ability: Playful Step. This ability grants a small but long lasting bonus to endurance recovery. It can stack with other abilities in this line and with other players version of this ability to increase its duration.
  • Added the tier 1 Entertainment ability: Humorous Twist. A tale must be being told for this to work, but it will grant a small boost to nearby allies health recovery.
  • Added the tier 2 Entertainment ability: Suggestive Move. This dance maneuver increases the duration of other effects on your character for its duration.
  • Added the tier 2 Entertainment ability: Spooky Twist. This adds a spooky twist on a story. Spooking players will cause them to be more focused on caution, enhancing their stealth skills.
  • Added the tier 2 Entertainment ability: Marching Chant, which increases movement speed. This has a much longer range, but much shorter duration than most other Entertainment abilities. You can triple that duration by having several players play at a time, however. It is a toggled ability.
  • Added the tier 3 Entertainment ability: Tale of Battle. This grants nearby allies a combat bonus.
  • Added the tier 3 Entertainment ability: Amusing Step. This stacks with Playful Step and increases its duration.
  • Added the tier 3 Entertainment ability: Reassuring Twist. This tale extension will decrease the rate at which Momentum is lost from nearby allies.
  • Added the tier 4 Entertainment ability: Battle Song. Similar to Marching Chant this song has a longer range, but shorter duration than most other Entertainment abilities, and you can triple the duration by having multiple players toggling it on. It increases the Attack Speed of affected allies.
  • Added the tier 4 Entertainment ability: Funny Twist. This goes into the same effect slot as Humorous Twist but increases the duration of the effect. It has a higher chance of success than Humorous Twist, as well.
  • Added the tier 4 Entertainment ability: Enticing Wiggle. This dance move uses the same effect slot as Suggestive Move but they can be used to enhance the effects. It also has a higher chance of success.
  • Added the Tier 4 Entertainment ability: Frightening Twist. This enhances and extends the Spooky Twists effect, and also has a higher chance of succeeding.
  • Added the Tier 5 Entertainment ability: Show Off. Unlike most other Entertainment abilities, this does not affect allies, but rejuvenates you personally.
  • Added the Tier 5 Entertainment ability: Rile Up. This is used to rile up onlookers, restoring a small amount of endurance instantly.
  • Added the tier 6 Entertainment ability: Tale of War. This uses the same effect slot as Tale of Battle, but enhances its effects, and also has a higher rate of success.
  • Added the tier 6 Entertainment ability: Scary Twist. This enhances and extends the Spooky Twists effect, and also has a higher chance of succeeding then either Spooky or Frightening Twist.
  • Added the tier 7 Entertainment ability: Soothing Twist. This ability uses the same effect slot as Reassuring Twist, but has a higher rate of success and will enhance its effects.
  • Added the tier 7 Entertainment ability: Dirty Dance. This dance move uses the same effect slot as Suggestive Move but is used to enhance the effects. It also has a higher chance of success than either Suggestive Move or Enticing Wiggle.
  • Added the tier 7 Entertainment ability: Hilarious Twist. This goes into the same slots as Humorous and Funny Twist, but enhances the effect. It has the highest chance of success of the three.
  • Added the tier 8 Entertainment ability: Tale of Heroism. This uses the same effect slot as Tale of Battle, but enhances the effects. It has the higher rate of success than Tale of Battle and Tale of War, as well.
  • Added the tier 9 Entertainment ability: Relaxing Twist. This ability uses the same effect slot as Reassuring Twist, but has a higher rate of success than it or Soothing Twist. It will enhance the effects of both of those abilities.
  • Added the tier 10 Entertainment ability: Blow Roof Off Place. This ability gives a small burst of Momentum and increasing the endurance pool of all allies in the area.
  • Added the tier 11 Entertainment ability: Open Mind. If allies within the area already have all of the buffs from the Story line of entertainment, this will grant them a +5% skill gain buff. The duration of this buff can be increased with multiple players cycling this ability.

  • PvP Missions are now supported and several have been introduced. They can either send the player out to kill a specific faction, or they can give credit for any enemy killed. As with all missions these can be made to be area specific.
  • Trap Interaction is now supported as a Mission Goal. There are options to update missions if a player sets off a trap, or also if they disable them. There are new missions which take advantage of this.

I assume your biggest concern is abuse?

 

Let me explain the measures we take to keep GM's in check.

- We take a zero-tolerance stand on abuse.

- GM's will play on a seperate account, which is fully monitored. Fully as in every move, transaction, gm command and even the chat will be logged.

- Players can report GM abuse, which will be taken very seriously.

- There are several ranks of GM's. Stafmembers will be the seniors with 3 main  focus areas .. manage GM teams, monitor for abuse and handle large cases.

- New GM's will get a " low"  level GM account with limited powers ... if they prove worthy and trustfull, after a few months they might get promoted to a next level.

- And then there is me ..... :P

 

By giving these powers to GM's, you can create a much more lively and dynamic, challening and fun game.

Eventhough abuse from a GM might possibly occur, we think the positive influence will outweigh it by large.

 

I'ld be happy to hear your ideas, unless it's "No GM powers" :)

that does help ease my concerns.  good to know that you guys have already thought about abuse.  thanks for response.

This is a good stance on how to manage GMs. One thing I really liked about WoW was their GM system. I never ran into a GM in the game world. However, if I ever needed one, they were always there to help.

Sandbox is your only hope for a decent mmo ;)

This game better live up to my expectations or im gonna scream! Oh wait they are turning it into f2p with cash shop :/ I realy love the concepts of this game, just trying to see if i will even bother since it will be f2p with a cash shop. Cash shops ruin games, and will destroy a sandbox.

If an AAA subscription game goes F2P ... i'm worried too.

If a game is designed from scratch to be F2P, you might have to give it a chance ;)

Awesome changes! Thanks for the list.  I'm putting all my hope in this one.  It's the only game I've pledged on.

GMs will need these powers in Repop as there is a very real possibility of live events occuring. If they leave it up to me we'll have bi weekly events pre-planned for three or four months post launch before open beta lol. We'll need to be able to mix it up and keep things random and interesting :)

As far as the concern of the cash shop, I personally hate cash shops, but the way we are setting up to do a cash shop isn't going to be your standard "F2P but if you don't buy from the cash shop you must grind 20 horus a day to keep up". Our cash shop is going to be convience and cosmetic based with the membership option that will give you the convience style features and possibly some of the cosmetic. Exact details haven't been decided, but the devs are wholly against a pay2win style cash shop.

A figment of your imagination.

I'm really excited to see these features in game. I'm also looking forward to seeing what GM's can do and glad to see that there's already a lot of consideration on how to keep GM's from abusing their abilities. 

It's all in the details and these guys seem to be on top of them.
