The Repopulation Crafting System Detailed – 4-5x Deeper Than Average MMO
Continuing their excellent communication with the community of The Repopulation, Above and Beyond have just released a new developer blog highlighting one of the games main focal points, crafting.

In many other MMOs you might have some reliance on gathering for crafting, but the design is simple; you either collect the raw materials or purchase them, and then you craft everything yourself. We have a system in place that at times goes 4-5 layers deep with a wide variety of recipes and skills used to create the components that would go into what we call an “end product” such as a Fitting.
