Star Wars Galaxies allows the player to visit various planets of the Star Wars universe. Most planets can have player cities and also feature planet-specific weather effects, such as sandstorms on Tatooine.
The game allows the player to visit 10 planets: Tatooine, Naboo, Talus, Rori, Corellia, Lok, Dantooine, Dathomir, Endor and Yavin 4. Of these, Tatooine, Naboo, Talus, Rori and Corellia are considered "starting planets", planets immediately available after Character Creation is completed. From these, players can travel to the five more advanced planets. Each planet hosts its own unique collection of Wildlife, NPCs, and Points of Interest.
Planets in Star Wars Galaxies
All planets have at least one NPC city/outpost, although only six have respectably sized cities. Every planet has a planetary map filled with points of interest (POIs). Sometimes these adhere to some sort of quest, and some are purely for sight-seeing.
On seven planets (Tatooine, Naboo, Rori, Talus, Corellia, Lok and Dantooine), players can place any type of buildable structure and create player cities. On three planets (Dathomir, Endor and Yavin IV), players may not place houses or shops, only resource harvesters and similar structures.
Length of Days
Each planet's in-game day takes real-time hours. Tatooine, Naboo, and Corellia are on a 3 hour cycle. Dantooine, Yavin IV, Talus, and Endor are on a 2 hour cycle. Dathomir, Lok, and Rori are on a 1.5 hour, 1 hour, and 30 minute cycle, respectively.
