Will there be any further updates to this game?
As of right now, this is definitely not a complete game. Will the Developer team be continuing their work on this game, or is this the best that they can do, being new in the field?

Josh and I are still here. Most of the development team has moved on to other things at this point. I think we are done with larger/game changing updates. There may be additional ones like the last couple patches which aim at bug fixes or polish.

Thanks for the update, JC :)

Do you guys have anything coming down the pipe, any exciting new projects, something we could see you go crazy on? :)

Happy Holidays to all the crew, btw, hope everyone's doing good!!

Thanks. I wish all the community a happy holidays.

We don't have anything exciting that we can talk about currently. Perhaps in the future though.

Fantastic.

There is definitely a feel that there is supposed to be a nice boss creature for every type of mob, but that is void of some of them.

The armored vehicle is very rough. Getting into it is sometimes touch and go, and firing the cannons are pointless at the moment, unless it is just for looks.

There seems to be only a partial story about the lost memories, as you are introduced to it than it is never really brought up again. Any type of lore or background would be fantastic.

Admin commands to create things does not work for mastercrafted and a few other items. I wanted to test it out a bit, for an idea of a fast pvp match with friends, and found some items cannot be created via command.

The crashes are rare, but seem to happen when I tab out and back in several times, which happens when I am crafting long timer things. Not a major issue, being how rare it is, in my opinion, but lesser computers might have more issues.

The floating mobs is rare, but happens most in the desert.

The desert area, near ponds, also keep giving me an error that no placement availible for spawns. I like to keep mobs at max spawn. Adds a lot of challenge to it.

I do not know your limitations, based on your experience and backing, but the game is a fantastic start, but really feels like it is missing the final elements. The boss fights are brilliant, but so few.

I love the crafting and building, as well as the gathering that is made. The creatures are fantastic as well! The game is fantastic, but just feels unfinished in the end.

Sadly, with the death of The Repopulation though, there's no awesome large pure sandbox sci-fi MMOs ala SWG out there anymore. Can we count on you?

also report these in the bug section. while the team may have moved on, doesnt mean fixes cant be looked into! im sure some of the old team wouldnt mind making this game at least something future players may enjoy as well :P

@HolyaventerOne but The Repopulation just got an update so I guess I'm not sure what you are talking about.

Yes, they just patched in the last patch that ABT gave them over 2 years ago, lol.

Now they're opening a big Steam sale for x-mas, the first TR has seen since it was ABT's over 2 years ago...

We've yet to see anything done by IF beyond : 1) fudging their engine dev so bad 2 years ago that ABT couldn't patch up anymore; 2) "buying" (we never heard the price...) the TR IP; 3) patching what should have been done 2 years prior.

Also, many beautiful screenshots (admittedly, they are good improvements, and done by talented artists), but they've yet to do ANYTHING with the game that shouldn't have been done over 2 years ago, and in the process, they keep blaming ABT every other dev update they publish.

I just can't believe them anymore, and I now firmly believe their project to revive TR is doomed, and sad.

Sorry.

I certainly hope to see some more game polishing and bug fixing as this game offers a lot if it can work bit better. I am ready to upgrade my recommendation to positive once the obvious flaws are fixed.
Alien creatures shouldnt just stand there to be slaughtered when you are on a platform which is what I found all the way to the highest boss so was too easy that way....

Also lost all my stuff way too many times inside platforms/on top of buldings also once I died. Best to respawn some distance away from being killed and settle only on land area (not on top of trees etc) - and yes I do know there is a time limit to that also.

For those of us that dont talk much on either repop platform, the game will not go anywhere, the updates they are pushing are not even at the state repop went down. Some break the game too if made by them. I stopped playing before it went down, wrok and life :/ but that stage still isnt nor will be seen either.. Not this decade anyway.

Im still waiting patiently to be proven wrong, i do like to be, however no one should hold out hope or of it getting a large player base again, its core players atm, are toxic af pushing away pottential newbies with ANY criticism. Its pathetic.

This game stands a better chance if its polished amd made modable and every so often those mods are made lore and put to main code. Moders save games <3

I'm frankly pretty surprised the developers are still hanging around. I want to support them even if this game doesn't have many players, considering the tough times they've been through with The Repopulation, but even during an -80% sale I can't purchase a game with that many recent negative reviews complaining about bugs and a lack of features. It would just be foolhardy.

I hope their next project has a better outcome.
it simply amazes me there isnt a graphics settings in the options. and more amazing it cant even support simple windows tasks like alt-tabbing without crashing.. disappointing. not overly surprised this has become abandonware
There are certainly graphics options in the settings.
