The Repopulation has made good progress this last month and has taken several large strides in a good direction. Their monthly patch notes can be found here (and are well worth reading), but I will give you the cliff notes.
Removed all dihydrogen monoxide from the game due to potential real life crossover dangers.
Grenades have been removed from the game.
Melee weapons have been removed from the game.
Ranged weapons have been removed from the game.
Added Hokfig milk to the game
All cookiees now have a chance to spawn a Trixie NPC which will lecture your character on posture, table manners, and getting homework done in a timely fashion.
Accounts on the normal ruleset server that are found to be ‘ganking, griefing, zerging or engaging in non-consensual pvp’ will, upon the first warning, be automatically transferred to the hardcore ruleset server. Note, no items equipped, in inventory, bank, or in any structures will be transferred, this would harm the economy of the hardcore ruleset server. Toons will be deposited without equipment on the hill in the exact center of the contested lands. Said character will have a Title of ‘Normal Ruleset Griefer’ that cannot be turned off until 100 hours of in-game time has passed, AND 1000 deaths. Good luck with that.
To prevent bots from signing up for free accounts, new registrants will be required to solve a differential calculus equation.For the mathematically challenged, an alternate option of 250 trivia questions on 50’s B-grade science fiction movies will be offered; an accuracy level of 95% of better is required to prove non-bot status.
Added many new missions including 'Kill 10 Rats', 'Kill 10 More rats', and 'Kill 10 of Those Big Rat-Looking Things'. Plus the ever popular 'Walk 10 Feet Across the Road and Deliver This Message For Me' mission.
Added an NPC called "the Meatlump King". He looks exactly like Chuck Norris. His only ability is a roundhouse kick with a 100 meter radius.
Among others, they seem to be making good progress in their quest to level up their humor skill.
