Just wondering how the game is going.

How many players are there present at any given time on any continents ? More then 200, less then 100 ?

From what I see, most of the modifications to this game has been on coding side.

Where is the original company that created Ryzom ? They completly dropped this ? Only volonteers are working on it ?

How long will Ryzom keep going ? Isn't the Forge community reducing little by littel ?

I am just wondering if it is worth playing Ryzom again. I haven't found a game that I could play for more then 6 months.

Depends on many things, like time zone, holidays, event pending...

Forever? :)

Why not to try?

Ok, maybe first make sure you know what you want :P

The answer might be "enough". As Moniq has mentioned, it depends on the time of day. When it is early evening in Europe there is a maximum, but there is also a minor peak when Australia and Eastern Asia come online. (No verifiable numbers, just based on the observations of me and my guild.)

Nevrax went bankrupt in 2006. Ryzom was then sold to GameForge (*ptui*) which ran it into the ground until the time of the Great Darkness in 2008. Winchgate bought it and brought it back to life later in 2008, and condensed the servers to one in 2012. Recent developments such as the Scenographic Editor and Pocket Worlds (now in beta) convince me that Winchgate is not planning to close the game any time soon.

In terms of content, the Ranger Faction is now totally real, with the activation of the Ranger Rite. Having just completed that Rite (two tries) -- it's amazing. There's a whole new area that is filled with life, and a mission that is actually worth doing because it is relevant to the Faction, not just a "spend this, do this 5 minute mission." The reward in addition to the Faction title and chat channel, is a method of travel to PR that looks to be an adventure in and of itself.

Other than Ryzom? Or including Ryzom? If that is a global statement, then that means that you have some very stringent conditions on what makes a good game for you. Ryzom is being continually (if slowly) developed. If you approach it with the attitude that you expect to be disappointed, you will be. There have been changes since you last checked in. Check them out.

Forgot to mention a few things.

I am in Montreal Canada. So this might be a factor in finding other players.

Also, I used to play this game and I think I played for 3-4 years.

The reason I have not found a game I like (still analysing) is because I am looking into something that has all the followings:
- a universe where I could virtually have another life
- by having another life, I expect to find everthing in there to do so as if I was really there (jobs, trading, crafting, exploring, sleeping, eating, family, ...)
- a community without jackass or assh....
- having fun while doing anything and everything
- freedom of choice
- freedom to decide I do the work myself or assign to minions/workers or a combination of both
- build an empire
- replay value,
- diversity
- not feeling limited in any way
- have a home
...

Heck if I could create an alternate universe with all this, I would probably dive in it. Althought I would need to first convince my wife ! ;-) (I might simply just want somewhere else to live)

A lot of times, I got bored playing some multiplayer games. Last one I was playing was Elder Scrolls Online. At first it was fun, then fun factor started to disapear and I got bored and started to feel a bit limited in what I wanted to do. This is the usual scenario happening every times. The Cool and New factor slowly go away and what remains is not inviting enough for me to stay.

Currently playing again X Rebirth because before I had quit due to too many problems with the game preventing me from doing what I want. They dished out a patch and I am trying it again. I thought I could give it a try again. I used to play X3AP.

I used to love playing Ryzom for the community feeling and interactions.

To the question of population in your time zone -

I am in your time zone often, and I can find people to play with.

I was able to be in a team of five to complete the Ranger Rite. I just showed up waited a few minutes and people showed up. I think I waited 15 minutes without anyone prompting others to join.

Atys is not Manila, nor is it like the Gobi. You will run into people off and on, but not so much that it becomes annoying.

This is the only game I play, other than life.
