There are two new populous matchmakers that are being made. The first one is by King_Warg and promises to be very good with support also for populous 4: AOC, information about his matchmaker is avaliable at http://populous-revolution.com/warg_mmprogress.html There is also another matchmaker being made.... although I can't give any info out. To me these matchmakers don't have much of a chance of being used because of the amount at the reincarnated matchmaker's lobby and most people wanting to play with as many people as possible, but if the matchmakers are good enough it might attract some visitors.
After a few years of populous reincarnated they have managed to get over 2000 members! (2164) Its great to see how fast the community is growing. There are also alot of new fan websites poping up everywhere which is great to see as populous 3 was made in 1998.
