The Repopulation's web site has been updated with the monthly patch notes. The team indicated it had worked very hard over the past month to make some epic changes to core game mechanics.
- Added a track with Fran Drescher singing the 'Song that never ends'
- Added 15 new animal sounds to the game; due to budget constraints these are mostly natural body function sounds with the audio channels tweaked. We should not of put all of that kickstarter money on black.
- An in-game voice server will be implemented to allow players to communicate with nearby players, or players within their group or nation. In order to save on bandwidth, all voice transmissions will be processed through The Repopulation’s clientside SMRTSPEAK system, which sends only the first syllable of each word to the other player. The receiving player’s SMRTSPEAK system then predicts what the initial player intended to say and fills in the blanks.
- Audio has been disabled until we can find the source of the screaming. We apologize to those testers who have been unable to sleep or who have experienced nightmares.
