I can see why it isnt overly popular. I gotta say though, to the person who told me about it when I made a post about resources that have stats. It is a very complicated game, with very interesting crafting. Even at the start crafting is complex, and everything you make is different from the other crafters there. The combat is fun to, with making your own ability with the different things you can get. The graphics are surprisingly good to if you max them out. I think they are actually better than some modern mmos. I think this because you can turn on 12x aa edge detect, and all the Amd stuff, and it still has a good frame rate. The NPC are great too, make you feel like you are in a real world, with them talking to each other and walking around doing stuff. The wild life is some of the best I have seen. The only thing I can compare the wild life too, is Skyrim modded http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/10175/? , which is Sky test. I have alot to learn, but it has everything I want, great sandbox mmo.
I see why it isnt overly popular, because it is super complex, and it takes a long time not only to level, but to figure out the game. It isnt like a modern games with instant results. I just wanted to share, it is going on steam, so hopefully more can find this gem. Any one looking for a SWG alternative this would be it.
