Publish 2 (Weapons & Pets)Edit

Publish 2 Notes: 4 September 03Edit

General Edit

  • Fixed some errors with groups and looting notification. Players in groups were not getting loot all the time. Now they should always get proper loot.
  • Fix for elevator bug that would cause players to be trapped on the bottom or top floor of a building.
  • New character deletion dialog to prevent accidental deletion. You must now also type "delete" character name to it to work.
  • Added separate level of detail sliders for various systems (particle, character, and static object) This was done to allow for more flexibility for players to decide what they wanted to see in high detail and low detail.
  • Fix to prevent exploiting creature lairs by standing inside them. Players were successfully completing missions by getting inside the lair and destroying it without the creatures aggroing on them. It should no longer happen.
  • Fix to prevent accidental harvester deletions. There is now a system message reminding you to remove any contents in the hopper, and/or to power down the harvester when trying to redeed it.
  • Fix equipped icon highlight. The color of the shade used to indicate an item is equipped has been altered to make it easier to see.
  • Allow for power and maintenance to carryover if structure is re-deeded. Power and maintenance values will remain in the harvester upon re-placement.
  • Factories re-deed costs have been re-instated. We had disabled them while we fixed the factory issues.
  • Profanity filter updates. Added more words to our filter.
  • Adjusted gambling game names. The new names are, "Lugjack machine", and "Jubilee Wheel".
  • Adding "no reclaim" status to some buildings such as factional installations. You cannot re-deed these structures now.
  • Power update. Potential energy attribute > 500 yields up to two times more power output. Power of that quality can last up to two times longer.
  • Radioactive sampling causes ill effects. It will now make you take damage when trying to manually sample radioactive materials.
  • Fixed issue where skills could be inadvertently surrendered. Some players had problems with their skills being removed. This has been fixed.
  • Added "/addPower" command to allow you to deposit power without using the radial menu.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed players to set a skill title that they did not earn. Players were using a / command to set their title to whatever they wanted. This is fixed.
  • Fixed an issue where fireworks would launch too quickly, in the fireworks show package. We added a delay to them which solves this problem.
  • Auction items and vendor locations should clean up properly when a player vendor is removed.
  • Fixed some issues with splitting resources when it should not be allowed. There were several exploits with splitting resources over and over again using your vendor. This is fixed.
  • Fixed an issue where players where unable to retrieve items from vendors and the bazaar. We had an issue with the region name that these vendors were in that disallowed items to be retrieved from them.
  • Fixed issue where players would leave public chat rooms when joining or leaving a group.
  • Fixed issue where the group window would not update properly when a group was disbanded.
  • Fixed issue where crafting stations with items in the input hopper would cause item limits in houses to not report correctly. Players were using an exploit to increase their house item capacity by tricking the system.
  • Fixed issue where resources would combine when placed on NPC vendors. This made it difficult to sell resources in set quantities.
  • Fixed an infinite inventory bug. Players used nested containers to trick the system.
  • Fixed an exploit with /rescue. Rangers could force other players into PVP without their consent.
  • Fixed a problem with Bounty Hunters where bad data could crash the client. If you have encountered this crash on your current mission, you should abort it and take a new one. This has proven to be a more difficult problem than most to track down. We are grateful to the customers who volunteered the time of their character to help us track it down.
  • Increased the minimum distance for destroy missions in small cities. We extended the minimum distance that a destroy mission will spawn now so that players will have to leave town in order to get them to spawn. The problem was that the spawn distance was too low, and the lairs were spawning as soon as the players took the missions. This allowed players to sit in town while others in their group could be outside of town, see the lair spawn and destroy it right away. This could be repeated over and over again for easy FP gain.
  • Fixed an issue where pets could sometimes be called when the player was in combat. This made pet owners more powerful than we want them to be.
  • Fixed some issues with guild chat channels. The chat server wasn't connecting to the client reliably. This should be resolved.
  • Fixed issue that prevented the removal of manufacturing schematics from factories. The "remove schematic" button now works properly.
  • Fixed issue where attributes would not regenerate properly. This would look like permanent stat loss, issue should be fixed now.

Crafting Profession Changes Edit

  • Updated crafting requirements for the lightning rifle. It no longer requires a specific type of resource to make.
  • Removed the decayRate attribute from many schematics. Community feedback was overwhelming that we remove decay from clothing.
  • Fixed the C12 grenade schematic. The C12 grenade schematic will no longer show up as a C22 schematic
  • Raised the resource cost of the C22 grenade by 8 metal so that it costs more than the C12 grenade. Increased the experience to compensate.
  • Slightly increased the crafting effectiveness ranges on Padded and Composite armor segments. This will greatly improve the usefulness of armor.
  • Added the ability for weaponsmiths to craft the reinforcement core and advanced reinforcement core components. (See next entry)
  • Added the reinforcement core as a required component to gaderiffi baton, stun baton, two-handed axe, and power hammer. The addition of the component will enable the armorsmith to impart component bonuses on these items (making them more in line with other weapons).
  • Reduced the encumbrance penalty on armor layers and segments. The encumbrance costs of wearing armor were a bit too high.
  • Increased the maximum range of the special protection on armor layers. To add more variance.
  • Vendors will now properly accept clothing handed to them if you have the merchant skill Hiring IV. You will now see your vendors wearing the clothes you give them.
  • Added a "customize clothing" option on vendors that describes how to do this if you have Hiring IV. This feature teaches you how to dress your vendors.
  • Fixed the draft schematic for the harvesting mechanism architecture component. You can now craft this item.
  • Fixed tailor customization: The master box now grants an additional 55 colors.

  • Tweaked component loot values on armor segments and enhancements to correspond with changes made to draft schematics.
  • Fixed a problem with some loot weapon component enhancements increasing attack delay instead of decreasing it.
  • Changed shield generator experimentation so that the attribute categories match that of armor and armor components. It should be much more clear now.
  • Added merchant ability to update player shop signs. A new option on the terminal to choose which type of sign you want.

    • rocket launcher 64m.
  • Changed all "delay" moves to use a 30 second timer

  • Changed resource requirements for medium warheads (grenades).
  • Armor piercing values have been modified on some of the left-hand fire weapons.
  • Changed the resource attribute weights on warhead components to use Decay Resist and Quality (experimentation should work properly with these now).

  • Changed experimentation on munitions components to use weapon experimentation. This will allow weaponsmiths to fully experiment on grenade components.

Creature Handler / Pet changes Edit

  • Pets regenerate HAM damage in the datapad, even when stored from the radial menu.
  • Pets current wound/damage will be save even when the pet is auto-stored.
  • Pet control devices will not be deleted unless the user selects the DESTROY option.

  • Store button is on the radial menu again.
  • Pets will no longer randomly decide to run back to the place from which they were called.
  • Destroying a PCD says "You have released your pet to the wild", unless it wasn't that kind of pet.
  • Non-CH's are limited to 2 non-aggro stored pets max (can still only call 1 CH pet, max). Players who currently have pets above their allowed limit will be able to keep the pets, but if their pets die, get transferred, etc, they will not be able to fill those "illegal" slots again. if they want a new pet, they will have to clear enough slots so they will legitimately have an available slot for the new pet.
  • CH's can store two creatures, in addition to their "+Stored Pets" skillmod
  • Aggro and non-aggro pets are not counted separately against the stored-pets limit.
  • Non-CH's cannot call aggro pets. Non-CH players who currently have aggro pets will not be able to use them. Unless they know the transfer command, they will be unable to do anything with those pets. if they do know the transfer command, they can transfer the pet to someone who is eligible. (see below)
  • PCD's cannot be transferred unless the pet knows the "transfer" command (this doesn't mean the pet has to be out, the pcd can still be transferred via the secure trade window)
  • Pet stats reduced due to vitality follow this formula:
    • 75 to 100 = no stat reduction
    • 50 to 75 = 25% stat reduction
    • 25 to 50 = 50% stat reduction
    • 1 - 25 = 75% stat reduction
  • Pet stats will never be reduced more than 75% due to vitality loss.
  • Pets will never permanently die due to stat reduction.
  • Droid pets will suffer vitality loss the same as CH pets do (instead of permanent death).
  • Creatures commanded to attack a target will actually attack it, instead of just running at it and stopping (happened with targets farther away that 50 meters)
  • Pets will not switch targets in combat unless commanded to attack something else.
  • Pets will switch targets in combat when commanded to attack something else.
  • Pets commanded to "follow" or "stay" in combat will stop fighting, and either follow, or stay, until commanded to attack something.

  • Combat medic dot attacks now place a TEF on the combat medic.
  • Reworked the auto medicine select logic to more smartly handle normal and ranged stimpacks.

Scout / Ranger changes Edit

  • The cost to craft camps has been increased. This was done to bring these craftables more in line with other craftable items that grant XP. (Since crafting camps and traps now grants Wilderness survival XP). Also, with the new changes to grouped Scouts being able to work together in organic resource harvesting, there is an influx of more resources into the world, and these higher resource requirements are meant to balance this.
  • Each scout in a group with loot permissions for a corpse may harvest from the corpse. Harvested group kills yield 60% their normal resources and xp, but may be harvested by each scout in the group.
  • Fishing now grants Wilderness Survival experience for catching fish. The size of the catch affects how much xp is earned. Catching loot or trash does not grant any xp.

  • The damage penalty for taking a hit while using /feigndeath has been reduced by a significant amount.
  • Slicing IV has been fixed so that it has the appropriate bonus.

  • Changed the harvester maintenance interface to be more intuitive.
  • Fixed lairs so that if they spawn close to a player building they will be removed from the world faster. This should prevent the problem where lairs would sometimes block the entrances to player buildings for long periods of time.

Update Notes: 7 September 03

  • Fixed issue with factories that caused powerups (as well as other items) to not have the correct attributes
  • Fixed issue with destroy missions that caused the objective to be destroyed as it spawned; however, they may block entrances to buildings again

  • Streamlined Customer Service UI categories for more efficient ticket handling

Update Notes: 9 September 03

  • Some containers (crafting stations and vendors especially) could get into a state where they would not calculate their inventory space correctly. This would make your inventory act like it was full, though the UI would say that you still have some room available. In some instances, this could also cause objects in your inventory to disappear until you thinned down how much you were carrying, at which point they would reappear. This should be fixed.
  • Fixed an issue with factory crates not showing the stats of the contained items.
  • Fixed an exploit where you could add charges to stimpacks.
  • Fixed an exploit where you could raise your secondary stats high enough such that using special moves actually caused you to gain points, rather than lose them.
  • Fixed a /tellpet exploit that let you quick store pets.

Update Notes: 12 September 03

  • Increased HP of creature lairs. Destroying lairs without attacking the creatures protecting it should be more difficult now.
  • Fixed issue that caused items to sometimes disappear from your inventory after purchasing them from a vendor and traveling.
  • Fixed issue that prevented combining data disks if your inventory was full.
  • Fixed issue with factory crates that allowed item duping.
  • Fixed an issue where creature handlers could call multiple pets from a single pet control device.

Death and Decay

  • NO decay for incapacitation
  • 1% decay upon Cloning (not death) if you are insured
  • 5% decay upon Cloning (not death) with no insurance

Mounts Edit

  • Mounts have been added! Players can now ride Bols, Brackasets, Kaadu, Carrion Spats, Dewbacks, and Falumpasets. To get a mount, mounts must be your pet AND trained as a mount. Players can either buy them as trained mounts or players with pets can take their pets to a Creature Handler (with the correct skill) to be trained as a mount. Bio Engineers can create mountable pets but can't automatically train them unless they have Creature Handler skills.

Player Cities Edit

  • Player Cities are now live! This extensive system allows you to become the Mayor of your own city. Included with the player city system are many new structure types including city halls, cantinas, and cloning facilities. Read the in-game Holocron pages on Player Cities for information on how to start and run a city.
  • The Politician profession is now live! In order to build a city you have to be a politician. Politicians gain skills that let them build bigger and more impressive cities. You can find politician skill trainers in all the major planetary capital cities.
  • The Politician forum can help answer any questions you have about being a politician or running a player city. Make sure you check that forum for hints and advice from your fellow political elite.
  • In order to allow construction of cities on rougher terrain, the placement restrictions on most player buildings have been relaxed. You should be able to place houses and new player city structures over shallow ravines or on the side of small hills. Installations like harvesters still have the same placement restrictions.
  • Merchants can now place "Merchant Tents." The tents come in three colors and are crafted by Architects working with Tailors. These small structures allow for a storefront that looks different from a player house.

Balance Edit

  • Armor components that give special protections now add on top of the armor's general effectiveness. This applies only if the armor wasn't previously vulnerable to that damage type. Adding special protections to armor will reduce underlying vulnerabilities.
  • Increased the power of quickHeal and reduced its mind cost.
  • Increased the power of cure poison and cure disease dots to make them more competitive with the strength of high level dots. (Doctors need them to use the /cureDisease command).
  • Players cannot tame baby creatures while dead or incapacitated.
  • Fixed a bug in AI which resulted in NPCs sometimes deathblowing players just for fun.
  • Fixed a problem with area diseases where the skillModRequired and the duration attribute ranges were switched.

  • Fixed a problem with several healing commands using the default roundtimes and not the roundtime modified by skill mods.
  • Changed the queue delay on quickHeal so that it is modified by the Injury Treatment Speed skill mod.
  • Reworked the dot mechanics so that dots no longer incapacitate the target. If a given dot pulse would reduce the target to less than one, the pool is instead taken down to 1. Because of this change, the dot grace period for being incapacitated has been removed.
  • Decreased frequency of NPC targetted shots vs. mind, focus and willpower.
  • Added a projectile feed mechanism enhancement loot item comparable to the Krayt tissue enhancement for blaster power handlers. Start looking. :)
  • Added mediumDisease and strongDisease attacks so creatures assigned those special attacks will be able to inflict hideous disease upon the players.
  • Added poison and disease attacks to many creatures.
  • Removed mapping of some slots to hit locations. If you have an item equipped in the eyes, mouth, back, or belt slots, it will not count as a potential hit location during combat.
  • Guard and soldier-type NPCs will no longer attack pets, unless they are supposed to (e.g. the pet is attacking one of their allies).
  • Attacking townfolk will no longer give the pvp TEF.
  • Fixed pets friendlist, so pets can be ordered to befriend another player and will respond to commands from that player (you can /tellpet to someone else's pet though, even if you are the pet's friend).
  • Multiple attribute mods wont contradict each other.
  • Fixed a bug that enabled medics to get experience by removing dots from pets.
  • Added kill contribution to the application of medical dots.
  • Loot components from unrelated creatures no longer stack. Only same-creature loot components will stack.
  • Increased the decay resist attribute ranges on reactive gas types.
  • Social creatures will no longer respond to attacks on their friends which they see, but which their friends do not respond to. For an example of the bug: If you throw a trap and it fails to effect the target, the target will not attack you but all of its friends WILL. For another example: If you /taunt a creature and it is out of range of the taunt, it will not attack you but all of its friends will. With this change the social friends should only respond to the attack if it really does push the defender (their friend) into combat-mode.
  • Removed "double movement speed" for creatures in Frenzy mode: this will reduce many instances of creature warping.
  • Fixed another problem where players could call pets multiple times

Combat Edit

  • NPCs and creatures will not immediately resume standing when knocked down. If dizzy, they may fall down again when they do try to stand.
  • Added combat spam when you take wounds or shock wounds.

  • Boss monsters will be more aggressive.
  • 2 Handed Sword visuals improved.
  • Fixed the collision-length of the faamba skeleton, which should help very short-ranged weapons being "out of range" when in melee with the fambaa.

  • Pistol Skill Changes: Pistol improvements made to dodge modifiers and melee defense modifiers.

  • Fixed experimentation formula to use the correct range when determining how much an item attribute changes. The formula was supposed to be based on the resource max range, but was using the entire attribute range.

  • Made it so you can't delete a factory crate that's being used in a crafting session.

  • here are two new components: Heavy Harvesting Mechanism and Turbo Fluidic Drilling Pump Unit, now used in heavy harvesters.
  • Harvester extraction components (like the Ore Mining Unit and Fluidic Drilling Pump Unit) now display how many points they contribute to a harvester's extraction rate. This is so these items can be more easily sold as individual pieces.
  • Removed the 'experimental durability' property from structure components, because it didn't actually do anything.
  • The 'experimental efficiency' property of structure components no longer just relies on the Unit Toughness of your crafting resources. Make sure you check what contributes to a good efficiency for harvesters.
  • Changed the Modern armoire furniture schematic to differ from the Elegant one.
  • Set the potted tree to come in factory crates of 10 when mass produced in a factory.

The new limits are as follows (The first number is the total cap. The second is how many can be rank 3 or above. The third is how many can grow to rank 4 or above.):

  • Corellia: 20, 15, 10
  • Dantooine: 50, 30, 20
  • Lok: 50, 30, 20
  • Naboo: 20, 15, 10

You can call any pet up to the limit of your additional pets skillmod, but no more levels at one time than your "tame level" skillmod. The tame level skillmod also determines the maximum level pet you can call or tame. The Tame Level skillmod has been redistributed throughout the tree, so only master creature handlers can call the highest level pets. The Transfer command has moved to the Master Creature Handler skillbox. The "train as mount" ability has moved to Management IV. See below for further details.

There are 3 damage mitigation abilities for ranged, and 3 for melee. They do not stack.
  • Fixed a problem where not every target was getting the appropriate messaging from an area of effect combat medic DoT attack.

Creature HandlerEdit

  • The creature handler skill tree has been re-organized: The "control level" skillmod has been removed. You can call any pet up to the limit of your additional pets skillmod, but no more levels at one time than your "tame level" skillmod. The tame level skillmod also determines the maximum level pet you can call or tame. The Tame Level skillmod has been redistributed throughout the tree, so only master creature handlers can call the highest level pets.
  • The Transfer command has moved to the Master Creature Handler skillbox. The "train as mount" ability has moved to Management IV.
  • Creature Handlers will only receive 1 xp for using a pet to kill something less than half the level of the pet.
  • Using baby high-level creatures to kill low-level creatures will result in less xp being granted than previously. For purposes of determining xp only, the creature's level will be considered to be no less than half of the creature's adult level. e.g. A baby gurreck was previously considered to be a level 5 creature even though an adult gurreck is level 50. Now a baby gurrek will be considered to be level 25 minimum, which will eventually increase as the pet grows until it has reached its adult level.

  • All currently tamable creatures remain at the same chance of spawning.
  • Some new tamable creatures were added with the same chance of spawning as current ones.

Player get attached to their pets, players will be able to visit Creature Handler NPC's and get a device to drag to the datapad. The device will transform their pets, carrying over it's name and commands to the new pet. The new pet will be of the same type, but of the correct level. Your favorite pet will stay your favorite pet :)

Player CitiesEdit

  • Note: We know that raising the Player City cap is very important to the community. We want to raise the player city caps as quickly and as much as possible, but we need to do this in stages so to prevent interference with Server Stability.
  • The number of Player Cities has currently been doubled, making the caps to 20 for all planets that are currently 10 and 50 for all planets that are currently at 25.
  • The new limits are as follows (The first number is the total cap. The second is how many can be rank 3 or above. The third is how many can grow to rank 4 or above.):

Any city that falls below rank 3 will be removed from the planetary map (This was done to keep maps from getting over cluttered and unusable).
  • Since we are increasing the city caps, we need to control on the amount of additional structures the world has to support. There is a civic structure cap of 1+(6*city rank). I.e. 7 at rank 1, 13 at rank 2, etc. Civic structures include cloning facilities, shuttleports, the city hall, and gardens - - Structures owned by the city.
  • If your city decreases in size so that the number of civic structures exceeds the cap, you will be charged 75,000 credits per week per structure over the cap as a part of your city hall maintenance. This penalty will be applied each week starting the week after the cap is broken.

  • Improved stability of vendors and the bazaar.

Due to the brash arrogance of the Rebel Alliance, the Emperor has decreed that his majesty's Imperial forces hunt down and destroy the Rebel Alliance and insure that all galactic citizens are abiding by the law. The Empire will be searching for members of the Rebel Alliance and anyone with contraband throughout the galaxy. The Rebel Alliance has gone into hiding, so don't be surprised if faction recruiters are more difficult to locate.

Bestine RedesignEdit

Bestine has a few special modifications based on Star Wars history. Imperials will control it and depending on which aide to the governor is in control, different city events will occur. Sand People might raid it, the Imperial presence might increase and players may be able to seek out historians for quests to learn more about the genuine history of Bestine. There is also a Bestine museum event players can get involved with.

Chef Profession RevampedEdit

The entire chef profession has been redesigned from the ground up. See below for details.

Vehicle CustomizationEdit

New tool allows players to 'paint' their vehicles. Master Artisans can craft vehicles and customization kits. Players can use these customizations kits to customize both the body color and striping color of vehicles.

Theme Park LootEdit

Revised Theme Park rewards for Imperial, Rebel, and Jabba theme parks. Players who have previously completed (or are currently in) Theme Parks may visit Record Keeper NPC's to reset their status and gain entry.

NPC Quest LootEdit

Tatooine and Dantooine quests, given by NPC's have all been given better loot as rewards. Record Keeper NPC's are available for the static quests on Tatooine and Dantooine as well as the Theme Parks.

New Visual Buff systemEdit

A new "buff" system has been put in place to give players an easy-to-use graphic interface to make game play buffing and de-buffing easier to understand.

     Professions: Armorsmith

  •      Added another optional layer slot to the RIS armor segment.

  •      Fixed bio-component data being added to a prototype object after a critical fail.
  •      Can now create new food additives (see Chef revamp below)
  •      Added invalid crafted pet checks back in. If invalid pet is found UI is displayed to try and "fix" pet to allow      it to be callable again.
  •      Fixed Level display when Ranger/Scout examines a crafted pet.
  •      Fixed CHs being able to tame a BE pet higher level than they can control
  •      Fixed Non-CH being able to call a non-aggressive BE pet of any level.

     Professions: Bounty Hunter

  •      Bounty hunter marks will now be non-aggressive (Instead of running around town killing players)
  •      Fixed some problem with Jedi bounty hunter missions being created and displayed improperly                      (Correspondent Issue).

     Professions: Carbineer

  •      Carbineer profession name fixes implemented (Correspondent Issue).

     Professions: Chef

  •      Chef Profession Revamp: The Chef profession has been completely revised in this patch. Chef food            items now have a more interesting and powerful set of effects and buffs and more flexibility in                      experimentation.
  •      New Chef Assets: Several food items now have custom art. There are also two new Chef hats and one        new Chef apron creatable by Tailors.
  •      Player Stomach: The stomach meters for food and drink now decay over a period of 30 minutes. Each        food item takes up a % of stomach space that may be determined by examining the item.
  •      Food Effects: Food effects are no longer limited to stat modifiers. Food created by Chefs can now                enhance skills, give new protections and enhance combat abilities. There are even foods for medics,            entertainers, and crafters. Examining a food item will display what it does. Food created before the patch      will be unchanged. We encourage all players to seek out and try the new foods!
  •      Food Experimentation: Chef experimentation on food has been reworked. Chefs now experiment on four        unique attributes: filling, flavor, nutrition, and quantity. Filling affects the stomach usage of the food,            flavor affects the duration of the food's effect, nutrition affects the effectiveness of the food, and                  quantity affects how many of the food the crafting attempt will yield.
  •      Bio-Engineered Food Additives: The set of Bio-Engineered food components have been revised. Bio-          Engineers can now create 3 intensities of component for each of the 4 experimental attributes (12 total).      A Chef can then use these components in his recipes through the additive slot. For example: a Bio-            Engineer could make a "light nutrition component" and sell it to a Chef who uses it to enhance the              effectiveness of one of their recipes. The impact of Bio-Engineered food components has been greatly        increased.
  •      Milking: Players can now milk certain herbivores. A "milk" option will show up on their radial menu. You        must be scent masked or concealed to milk. You'll have to figure out on your own what can be milked.
  •      Drink Containers: Drink recipes now require a separately crafted container. As a Chef increases in skill,        they will earn the ability to create new types of containers. The larger the container, the greater the yield      of drink created in a single crafting attempt.

Find out more about the Chef Revamp.

     Some Additional In-Test changes made:

  •      Decreased the stomach filling value of several foods.
  •      Increased the xp output on Chef foods.

  •      Deaths will decay from the death counter after one week.
  •      Deaths after a buffer (3 to 5 depending on advancement) will have a skill revocation penalty.
  •      Skill revocation will be slight at first, but will increase in penalty as the player accumulates more and              more non-decayed deaths.
  •      The skill revocation penalty will increase as a player advances up the skill tree.
  •      The skill to be revoked will be randomly chosen from the last skill earned in each of the 4 skill branches.
  •      No more than one skill will be revoked at a time, though players can get to a state where they lose a skill      each time they die.
  •      When Publish 6 is released, all existing deaths will be reset to 0 so all Jedi start out with no deaths.

     Professions: Merchant

  •      Since housing contents are now loaded on demand, vendors were giving less xp than usual. They now        take into account how many updates were missed and will grant a normal amount of xp when they are          loaded. Players will see improved normal merchant xp rates.

Publish 7 (Droid Invasion)Edit

Publish 7 Notes for 17 March 04Edit

Due to overwhelming player feedback the Crafting Experimentation change included in Publish 7 has been reverted to the way it worked previously. Click here for more information

Droid Invasion Major Features Edit

Droid & Droid Engineer EnhancementsEdit
  • Droid Damage Repair Kits and Droid Wound Repair Kits
  • Droid Battery consumption rate halved (enabling them to last twice as long)
  • Droids will no longer be susceptible to poisons, bleeds, /warcry or /intimidate
  • Combat Droids will have all the fighting functionality of a regular combat-capable creature (up to CL10)
  • These options will function like creature pets.
  • All players will have the ability to own and operate these combat droids.
  • A combat droid is a droid that is capable of attacking things, in addition to other potential droid capabilities that can be added to droids currently.
  • The normal crafting process is used, and a combat module is included in the droid.
  • Combat modules will only mount in droids capable of combat. Combat modules can be placed in any of the general droid module slots that already exist on droid socket components and droid chassis, seen as optional slots during the crafting of the droid.
  • Combat module is crafted in exactly the same fashion as other droid modules, using a draft schematic, resource ingredients, and previously crafted component ingredients.
  • Combat modules can be crafted at varying quality levels, which can be seen when the module is examined.
  • Combat modules stack and if more than one of them is placed in a single droid, they have a cumulative effect.
  • To have the strongest combat droid, six 100% combat modules must be used in constructing a droid.
Preliminary Combat Balance Changes Edit

As part of the ongoing Combat Balance, the team has made some preliminary changes to combat in order to equalize some of the larger changes that have been made recently.

  • Defensive Modifiers will have a hard cap with profession template stacking. Defense stacking will no longer stack beyond the intended combat calculation limits causing the defender to be nigh invulnerable.
  • Carbineer Specials have been improved:
  • The dizzy effect in

/fullAutoSingle1, /fullAutoSingle2, /fullAutoArea1 & /fullAutoArea2 have been improved

  • /burstShot2 was changed from a single target to an AE cone attack
  • /actionShot2 now hits all targets in the area of effect.
  • Defense / To-Hit Fixes:
  • Melee attackers now get a To Hit bonus when attacking targets with ranged weapons.
  • Dodge enhancing Food now decreases your chance of being hit.
  • Accuracy increasing food now increases your chance to hit your target.
  • Dead Eye buff now increases your chance to hit your target.
  • Warcry has been changed from being a single target lock down preventing it from attacking to a method of 'crowd control'. Enemies can be temporarily prevented from attacking as long as they are not currently being attacked themselves.
  • Panic Shot & Strafe Shot are cone effect shots that will delay your target for 10 seconds on a successful shot. Strafe Shot succeeds only when your target is in the 'take cover' position. In both cases, the effect ends upon further damage to the target.
  • Bleed DoT Improvements: Targeted pool bleeds (/mindShot1 & 2, /healthShot1 & 2, etc) now hit their intended pool on the initial strike as well as the bleed damage.
Crafting System EnhancementsEdit

One of the top concerns for crafters of all types was the issue of 'critical fails'. Critical fails are a risk that all crafters take when attempting to create an item. This basic dice roll function is the gamble crafters take as part of the risk of crafting, but as a resounding player concern, the developers looked at the system to see how the relationship of crafter and crafter-risk could be made to have a stronger relationship to the fictional act of crafting. Toward creating a stronger crafting experience, a new modified die roll model has been implemented to enhance the experience so that now, a crafter's raw ability will have an effect on how often critical fails occur. Crafting still works on the same risk/reward principle of a 5% critical fail chance, but is now modified with the player's assembly or experimentation skill. As crafters progress from Novice to Master they will have a reduced chance of a critical failure.

Bounty Hunter Jedi Tracking Missions Edit

Now, Bounty Hunters can track player Jedi in the same manner as their NPC targets. Bounty Hunters can get a mission from the bounty hunter terminal for a player Jedi. Go to your contact to get the bio-signature. Then just use your seeker/probot droid to find your target. Keep in mind that unlike the NPC targets, players will move around unpredictably. (As a result, the location updates can lag behind a couple of minutes.) Additionally, Bounty Hunter tracking speeds have been fixed and now as the hunter increases in skill, the tracking speed will increase.

Junk Dealer Revamp Edit

Continuing the loot system changes will include the rebirth of the Junk Dealer. As part of this change, Junk Dealers will have more robust conversations, be willing to buy all different types of NPC loot drops and become a new source of income for players. Players will now be able to go adventuring, collect the various loot drops from NPC's, adventures and dungeons and take it to a Junk Dealer to sell. Junk Dealers won't buy just any junk either. Different dealers will specialize in different kinds of junk, so players will have to explore and find out which dealer deals in which kind of junk. Be sure to talk to the various Junk Dealers to find out which junk they like the most!

Vertical Item Movement Edit

Another big player request brings the ability to move furniture and household items up and down. Players in all houses can now move items up and down by either using the Radial Menu or the following commands:

  • /moveFurniture UP (1-500)
  • /moveFurniture DOWN (1-500)

Players will be able to move items vertically in Player Houses, Merchant Tents, Player Association Guild Halls and all player city structures.

Lighting Objects Edit

Players will now have many craftable light sources in the game that will have the true functionality of a light source. Additionally, many new lamp styles have been added to the game and now players can also have candles. Players will be able to purchase architect crafted candles and lamps that act as a light source. The decay rate of the candles and lamps depends on crafting quality. Candles will have a lifespan between 7 and 21 days, lamps between 21 and 42 days

Camp Restrictions Removed Edit

After Publish 7, players will no longer be required to be in camps to pull out Vehicles, Mounts, Droids or Pets and can pull them out wherever they are, eliminating the player inconveniences of having to find rural areas far from cities, lairs and other no-build zones in order to build a camp. The basic rules of calling Vehicles, Mounts, Droids or Pets are:

  • There is a 15 second delay after you call for a vehicle/mount/pet/droid before it will generate.
  • If combat occurs during that 15 second period, it will stop the call from completing.
  • A player will not be able to call a vehicle/mount/pet/droid during combat for 30 seconds after combat is concluded.
  • A player will not be able to call a mount/pet/droid while mounted or on a vehicle.
  • Camps have retained their original vehicle/mount/pet/droid calling abilities so that either method can be used by players.
Player City Garages Edit

Architects will be able to craft Player City Garages that Politicians can place in their cities. This new craftable structure will require a Player City to be at least level 2. Now players will be able to repair their vehicles in many more locations. Mayors can also place a service fee on using their player garages. You must be within 64m to use a garage. You can not place multiple garages within 200m of another.

Sliced Weapon TagEdit

With the Empire cracking down on sliced weapons and armor, publish 7 brings the ability for players to be able to view sliced armor and weapons to find out which items have been sliced.

GCW Changes Edit
  • Adding repetitive defenses: After the first defense/turret is attacked and destroyed no new defenses can be added to the base for 1 hour during the vulnerability period.
  • Enemies cannot enter HQs until all turrets are destroyed: Players attacking a faction HQ are by-passing the HQ's defenses by simply running past them and entering the building to initiate shut-down sequence on the base. This makes turrets ineffective in guarding bases since they only get a few shots in before an enemy enters the HQ. This solution changes things, making it so that when bases have defensive turrets placed the HQ cannot be entered until after all turrets have been destroyed. This should make attacking a factional HQ a bit more challenging while also making defending of such a structure easier.
  • Fixed maintenance on HQs: Maintenance will function correctly on Faction HQ's
  • Flame DoT removal items: Flamethrowers have the ability to inflict fire DoT's and currently, the only way to remove that DoT in PvP is to submerse a player avatar in a static body of water. To give players an alternative method that can be used in all battles, Doctor's can now craft Fire Blankets. Fire Blankets will give Doctors the ability to extinguish flame with a /extinguishflame command that will enable the use of the fire blanket. To balance out the Fire Blanket, using the blanket drains the 'mind' of the doctor.
  • Status Effect Changes: The ability to effect the status of inanimate objects has been removed. Players will no longer be able to effect AT-STs, player vehicles, droids and turrets by the special effects of Stun, Dizzy, Blind, Warcry and wookiee roar. Additionally, biological DoT's (poison and disease) will no longer effect vehicles, droids or turrets and finally, AT-ST's and players vehicles will be immune to all posture changes.
  • Turret Target Locks: When attacking a turret players sometimes use an exploit that will involve sending one of their members into range or one of their pets into range. Then they will begin an attack causing the turret to attack them back. After the turret has aggroed the player, the player/pet will then move to a position over 80m away which is outside the turrets range. The turret will remain engaged with this target even though it is not attacking back because it is out of range. Attacking team members will then move in and kill the turret free of any danger. Now turrets will disengage from these types of out-of-range targets that are out of its 80m range and find a better, more aggressive target. Turrets should no longer get locked onto pets / Turrets stop attacking and get new target if current target moves out of range.
  • Vulnerability Times: Vulnerability times on HQs should no longer erratically fluctuate, allowing players to more effectively plan base defenses. Players can now choose the base vulnerability times. By using the base terminal, base admins can bring up a menu option for resetting their vulnerability times. This may be done once every two weeks; the first choice is free to select a time. From then on out, the choice works by choosing the radial menu option, 'Reset Vulnerability'. In other words, the moment you click the 'button' is the time the vulnerability time is set at.
  • Zero HP Turrets: Turrets attached to Factional Headquarters had a chance that when they reached zero, they would remain in the world and continue to attack players. Turrets at 0/0 will now deactivate and be removed from the world.
Bestine Quest Enhancements: Edit

The politician, Victor, has a series of new quests for players to experience as part of the Bestine political intrigue saga. When Victor is in power, help him find out what is so dangerous in the desert!

New Mounts: Edit

Players have new mounts available in Publish 7: Bantha and Cu Pa

Publish 9 (Secrets of the Force)Edit

Publish 9 Notes for 29 June 04Edit

Major Features Edit

=== Jedi Revamp Part 1 === Publish 9 brings us The Secrets of the Force. In The Secrets of the Force, existing Jedi may now re-allocate their skill points based on the type of Jedi they would like to create. When you log on, you will see a window pop up that will prompt you to convert your Jedi to the new Jedi skill system.

In the new Jedi skill system, you may remain PvE (with the exception of the occasional Bounty Hunters wanting to prove themselves) or may choose to go on to the new PvP Force Ranking System (FRS). Jedi must choose their path to Force mastery by following the path of light or turn to the dark side. The FRS is a PvP mechanic that allows a Jedi to advance beyond the rank of Knight. It consists of two skills trees, one for Light and one for Dark. Each skill represents a Force Rank. Experience to attain these Force Rank skills is gained and lost through PvP actions. Light Jedi will vote on advancement and Dark Jedi will fight for advancement. To advance, the Light Jedi and Dark Jedi have gathered into groups and have set up their own secret Enclaves, hidden away from the Empire, allowing only a set number of players to advance into the various Force ranks. Only a set number of players may attain a given rank within each Enclave. Therefore, in order for one to advance, another must be demoted. Jedi who enter the FRS are automatically set as always overt for their aligned faction (Rebel for Light and Imperial for Dark). As long as they stay within the FRS, they can not go covert or resign/change factions.

The quest utilizes brand new static and dynamic content. Find the hero and see if you have what it takes to acquire the Marks of Altruism, Intellect, Courage, and Honor. For players who previously completed the quest, you will retain your badges and may complete the quests from where you left off or from the beginning. To start the quest, the player must first seek out and speak with the Hermit of Tatooine.

Loot Kits Loot kits are a new mini-game for collectors. Players can collect a new type of loot from NPC's and combine them to make better items. Players can start by visiting Junk Dealers that are located in Combat Guild Halls and request a "loot kit". These loot kits are containers that will be used to collect miscellaneous items dropped from NPC's and can be turned into a new reward for players to keep or sell back to the Junk Dealer.

Profession: Jedi As part of the Jedi revamp, Jedi will find that they will have to deconstruct their lightsabers via a new radial menu option. Jedi will be able to use their crystals and pearls as they will be reclaimed using the new system. Please make sure you have enough free inventory space before attempting to deconstruct any lightsaber. New lightsabers are a weapon that is also a slotted container based on a player's level. The only items a Jedi may place in the lightsaber is 1 Color Crystal and 1-4 (based on lightsaber type) 'tuned' Force Crystals or 'tuned' Krayt Pearls. The stats of the basic lightsaber will remain at its crafted values, however stats will go up and down based on the values of the crystals placed within. The lightsaber's blade color will be determined by the 'Color Crystal'. Lightsaber's without a color crystal cannot be used. Based on its generation, lightsaber's will gain slight stat bonuses along with more container slots to put crystals in. There are 4 styles available to each lightsaber skill line now.

A Jedi will now be required to 'Tune' the crystal or pearl he/she wishes to use. A Jedi will use the Force to tune the crystal to their body. Once tuned, the crystals and pearls will only fit within lightsabers crafted by that Jedi. Jedi may only use lightsabers that they have crafted. Lightsabers, tuned crystals, and pearls will all be tradable to others. There will be a description on the crystal and pearl after it has been tuned to the player who tuned and the stats will be visible at the time. Lightsabers may not be sliced. All crystals and pearls must be tuned. A lightsaber must have 1 color crystal in it to power on. All crystals must be in the lightsaber prior to equipping it as once equipped the lightsaber inventory cannot be altered. A player must unequip a lightsaber if they wish to change the setup of their crystals. Lightsabers will no longer decay; now, crystals and pearls decay based on damage. Once the condition of a crystal or pearl reaches 1 or lower it must be replaced. The crystal/pearl's text will change to red when it is no longer usable. These changes will affect players who have already unlocked their Force Sensitive (FS) slots. Players who have not unlocked their FS slot may continue to master professions for credit, but no new players will become Jedi until Publish 10, The Jedi Trials. Players may still unlock their slot, but it will not be active until Publish 10.

These loot kits are containers that will be used to collect miscellaneous items dropped from NPC's and can be turned into a new reward. Loot kits are free for the asking and one per customer. Players can speak to different junk dealers in order to get new loot kits, by asking the Junk Dealer, "What sort of items do you have that you are looking to get rid of?". Once players decide which loot kit they would like, they may begin collecting the parts. To complete a kit, players will need to gather 10 different items that go with the kit. To see what items the kit requires and which ones have already been gathered, "examine" the kit. This list also will tell the player what items they still need to loot by use of a "yes" or "no" next to each item in that list. Only items that the kit actually requires can be placed inside the kit. When a player gets an item that fits with a kit they own they can instantly drag and drop it into the kit and the kit then will count that item as recovered. Kits will not be tradable between players although all the looted parts will be. Kits can only be placed in your main inventory slot or in the bank. The loot kits examine window gives a basic description of what the kit will make, as will the names of the kits. These items can be kept by the player or sold back to the junk dealer for a 1000 credit reward.

Publish 10.3 - Update Notes: 21 September 04

  • Bounty Hunter Payouts Have Been Adjusted Based on the Level of the Jedi
  • Non-Force ranked Jedi will always be worth at least 25k credits.
  • Force Ranked Jedi will always be worth at least 50k credits

Profession: Bounty Hunter

  • The XP reward has been increased for player Jedi bounty missions.

Profession: JediEdit

  • All bounty TEFs should now be cleared correctly upon death from a bounty hunter.
  • Jedi should now be able to completely clear their visibility after 3 weeks if they don't do anything else to increase it during this time. Visibility is gained when drawing your lightsaber or using force powers for each NPC or non allied PC within range.
  • A Jedi must perform a death blow against a bounty hunter to cause the hunter's mission to fail, instead of just incapacitating them.


  • All armoires, bookcases, cabinets, and chests can now all hold items.


  • Empty Vendors - A vendor is considered empty if it has no items for sale. Empty vendors may not be registered on the planetary map. If a registered vendor becomes empty, he will be removed from the planetary map. If a vendor remains empty for 14 days, the owner will be sent an email warning that the vendor will soon be deleted. If that vendor remains empty for an additional 14 days, the vendor will be deleted. Any items in the vendor's Stock Room and any items offered to that vendor will be deleted with the vendor.
  • Unused Vendors - Vendors who go too long without being used will get deleted from the game. The only events that constitute use are placing a new item for sale on the vendor, or a customer buying an item from the vendor. Checking a vendor's status, paying maintenance, withdrawing sales, having offers placed, or accepting offers are all events that do not reset the Last Used timer. If a vendor goes 14 days without having a new item placed for sale, or an item purchased, then the vendor gets flagged as Unused. If a vendor remains Unused for a 14 days, it becomes in danger of getting deleted. When this happens, the player will be sent an email warning. If the vendor continues to be unused for an additional 14 days, the vendor gets deleted. Any items for sale on the vendor, items in the Stock Room, and offers to that vendor will be deleted with the vendor.
  • Fixed some cases where the number of vendors was being set incorrectly on players.

Force SensitiveEdit

  • Added a check on login to restore the force sensitive title skill to a player that is eligible to enter Aurilia.

FS QuestsEdit

  • Updated the code in the medic quest puzzle for phase 1 to fix an unlocking problem
  • Completing the extra patrols in FS Quest Combat 1 should now give the reward item even if you have a full inventory.
  • Tweaked the messaging of the shield destruction in the FS counterstrike quest in order to make it clearer.
  • Crafting Phase 1 Quest: You may only calibrate components that you craft.

Nym's ThemeparkEdit

  • Jinkins and Kole should no longer require players to drop items on them; instead they can just talk to the NPC


  • You can no longer revoke the force sensitive title skill as a non-Jedi. (Jedi's already could not revoke this).

Update Notes: 29 September 04

FS QuestsEdit

  • The crate of supplies Whip sends you to find will be automatically placed in your inventory when you arrive at the crashed transport (resolves certain issues with crate not spawning, spawning in tree, underwater, under a house, etc.) If you cannot find the transport crash site, you can return to Whip and request a new site to search for.


  • The timer for Unused vendors becoming in danger of getting deleted was changed from 14 days to 100 days. The timers on Empty vendors were unchanged. Empty vendors still become in danger of deletion after 14 days, and then get deleted if they remain empty for an additional 14 days. This means that the code for Unused vendors is likely to never get called. An Unused vendor will end up Empty and later get deleted before the 100 day timer can kick in.

Update Notes: 30 September 04

  • Jedi Visibility is now cleared upon completion of a successful bounty hunter mission against the Jedi. This fixes an issue where bounty TEFs were not clearing. All bounty TEFs will now be cleared correctly upon death from a bounty hunter.

Force SensitivityEdit

  • Fixes players who have completed the FS village phase 2 crafting quest who did not get their skills opened.
  • Fixes players who failed the FS village phase 2 crafting quest by going to another planet and receiving a "Failed Mission" message upon leaving the planet. All players doing this quest should no longer receive a "failed mission" message.
  • Power up reward from the village Search and Destroy missions can no longer be used on lightsabers.

Padawan TrialsEdit

  • Fix for players who fail or quit the Padawan trials, and then when they start again cannot tune a light crystal. This also allows players currently in this state to use a Force shrine and it will automatically fix the problem for them.

Publish 10.4 - Update Notes: 2 October 04

  • Disturbance in the Force

There has been a great disturbance in the force. An unknown power has surged through the galaxy in defense of the Jedi. The Empire's database of known Jedi has been inexplicably purged. All Bounty Terminals have gone blank. In response, the Empire has renewed all of its Bounty Hunter terminal contracts.
Given recent changes to Jedi, as a one time event:

  • Jedi Visibility has been reset to zero.
  • Jedi players with experience below (-1 Million) has been raised to (-1 Million)


  • Jedi players will gain visibility if the following actions are performed while players or NPCs are near:
    • Equipping a lightsaber.
    • Engaging in combat with a lightsaber.
    • Using a force power.


  • Jedi visibility is reset to zero only when a bounty hunter that has a mission on a Jedi kills that Jedi. Visibility is not reset by random Jedi death.

Update Notes: 6 October 04

Nym's Themepark:Edit

  • Jenkins now responds with the correct quest success conversation.

Update Notes: 13 October 04

Entertainer Quests Edit

Entertainer quests have been added to all of the theaters in planetary cities. Entertainers, Dancers and Musicians can all participate in this quest by visiting the theaters and speaking with the theater manager NPC. By speaking with this NPC, Entertainers, Dancers and Musicians can sign up for an audition. Once players have passed the audition, the theater manager will extend an offer for a performance series. The performance series consists of three shows and three promotional campaigns.

When the time comes for a show to begin, audience members will enter the theater. The performing player will have an opportunity to speak to the audience to try and determine what type of music, dance, or flourishes they like, and what they dislike. When the show starts, the player will receive feedback indicating the audience reaction to the performance. Once players complete the all three shows to the satisfaction of the audience, the theater manager will reward them with a new song or dance (rewards are given for Musicians and Dancers. Entertainers may participate and earn the reward, but they will not be able to use it until they become Musicians or Dancers.)

To Log in to Jump to Lightspeed

  • Patch the ground game as normal
  • Register your JTL key on the registration page

To Activate your Pre-Order Flash Speeder:

  • You must enter both your Pre-Order key and your retail key to claim your reward (2 keys total)
  • If you have not entered your beta key, then you can enter your Pre-Order key in either of these locations:

Then on the left hand side of the Launchpad, just underneath the "chat" button, you will see a "Register Expansion" button. Click that button to start the registration process. Enter your JtL retail key as prompted and when you are completed, your account will be JtL Enabled and your Flash Speeder deed will be in your inventory.

Shared Assets Edit

Please be aware that there are many "shared images" in the JtL Expansion such as ship components and other items which have a "default appearance". If you do not purchase and enable JtL, you will only see the "Default Appearance" of these items and not the item itself. Players who have JtL and players who do not have JtL may see different appearances of some in-game items in this case.

Graphics Options Edit

There are new graphics options with JtL that are automatically enabled for all players. One thing players can do to improve their game performance is to check their graphics settings.

Publish 11.2 - Update Notes: 16 November 04

Major Features Edit

Apprenticeship XP Edit
  • Lowered to 300 necessary for all professions

FRS Tweaks/ Fixes

  • Reduced the FRS experience maintenance costs.
  • PvP kill lists which are used to track FRS experience now persist from session to session.
  • Increased the amount of FRS experience received from killing rival Enclave members as well as bounty hunters.
  • Added a no-confidence voting challenge terminal to the Light Jedi Enclave. This enables Jedi to petition for the removal of higher ranked members.

Note: As a result of these changes the FRS ranks will be reset (all Knights set to Rank 0), to allow the system to get repopulated under these new rules.

CS will not reimburse for this change so please do not email or place a petition regarding the FRS ranks being reset.

Chat Edit
  • Spatial chat persists from ground to space—and back again
Fixes Edit

We were made aware of some issues that give people an unfair advantage over others. If you run across an issue like this in game please help us out by reporting it with our bug tool.

These fixes include:

  • Fix a problem where a Jedi can log in and out quickly to drop off a tracking droid's radar
  • Fixed a problem where Lightsabers could be overloaded
  • Fixed pet duping issue
  • We changed the way group payouts for missions are calculated. When a mission is generated, the reward payout per member is calculated based on the current size of the group. If the group shrinks in size or group members are too far away to receive payout, those that do get paid receive the original per member reward. For example, if 3 players take a mission that pays 12k credits, each player will receive a maximum of 4k credits when the mission is completed. They receive 0 if they are out of range, and less if more people are added to the group to complete the mission

Along with these Major Features and the above listed fixes we have changed the way City Voting is handled. Read on for more information.

City Voting Rules Update Edit

The system for electing a new mayor has changed. Voting is now held every 3 weeks. City maintenance still occurs every week. A citizen who registers to run may now unregister from the vote terminal. The mayor may unregister as well. Changes to the voting roster are only allowed during the first two weeks of each election cycle. The citizen with the most votes wins the election.

You MUST explicitly cast a vote in order to be counted. Abstentions no longer count as votes for the incumbent.

Experience point grants for winning votes have been tripled. The incumbent mayor also receives a weekly 750 point experience bonus.

Update List Edit

Below you will find other fixes and game play enhancements to make Star Wars Galaxies a better game.

  • Overt players are now only forced covert when cloning. Players are now invulnerable while loading from travel or logging in from being safely logged out
  • There is now a black-out period per-server during which factional base vulnerability cannot be reset that should typically conform to when the servers are down.
  • Stopping a factional base overload now requires a friendly player to start the base shutdown, remain at the terminal for 60 seconds, and then confirm their desire to shut the base down to avoid overload.
Profession: Droid EngineerEdit
  • Increased droid battery duration by 4x
Profession: Image DesignerEdit
  • Cosmetic change timer has been changed from 2 minutes to 1 minute.

Player City Voting System Fixes / ChangesEdit

  • Candidates, including the incumbent, will be able to opt out of the election at the city voting terminal. Everyone gets an email when this happens.
  • You may register to run in the race during the first 2 weeks of the election. Everyone gets an email when someone registers. In order to block email spam abuse, players will only be able to register/unregister once in a 24 hour period.
  • Votes that are not actively cast for a candidate will no longer be counted.
  • The mayor will be elected by the majority of voters who participate.
  • Politician XP for receiving votes will be tripled.
  • The sitting mayor will receive a weekly Politician XP bonus of 750 points. This will allow mayors to advance if their citizens are apathetic about voting.

  • Any CorSec Pilot can receive new missions (but missions are not offered every time).


  • Imperial and RSF Pilots of Tier 3.5+ (two skills in tier 3) can receive missions.


  • Tier 2+, Specific story missions for all pilots, rebel pilots, and smuggler pilots.


  • Rebel, CorSec and SA pilots tier 2+ receive missions.


  • Imperial and RSF Pilots Tier 2+ can receive missions.
  • Players of the RSF or Imperial track that have completed tier one can do a quest to get access to the Emperor's retreat without doing the ground Theme park missions.
  • Tatooine System, POI: SA, look for Garret at the Hutt Claims POI.
  • Any faction can find Kelen Wordka near the Tatooine Station or A'Lerris near the Nalera's Mining Station POI.


  • Rebel and SA pilots in Tier 1 can take the duty mission; Tier 2 SA can do the quest for access to Jabba's Palace.


  • Players wishing to receive missions from this station must be a ground Smuggler of Alliance or Privateer faction.


  • Tier2+ Specific story missions for all pilots, rebel pilots, and smuggler pilots.
New Droid User Interface Edit

Here's how to use the droid programming UI (flight commands UI)

1. Get a droid, either an astromech or a flight computer.

2. Get programmed chips (optional). If you have un-programmed chips, you can use the radial menu program the chip with any command your character "knows". You can also buy chips with commands you don't know.

3. Select the "Program Droid" command from the radial on the droid.

4. Once the UI appears. All commands you know (from skills) and chips you have (crafted or purchased) are on the left side of the window. All commands IN (active) the droid are on the right side. You can move commands back and forth to program the droid. The volume bar on the right shows how much room you have left. Putting chips in a droid (as opposed to commands you know) destroys the chip when the command is entered. This is so you can get "one-shot" programming of commands you don't know. Each faction gets different commands, so they can trade back and forth.

5. Press "Commit" to make the change to the droid.

6. When you are ready to load your droid or flight computer onto your ship, all you have to do is access a starship terminal and go to the "Manage Components" screen. On the left hand side, select the "Droid/Flight Computer" option and "load" it into your ship. You can now access your droid or flight computer in space by pressing CTRL-A while in space.

Announcement on Engine Component Rebalance Edit

The top speed of the Mandal Motors 'Inferno' engine (granted as a quest reward) was reduced from 92 to approximately 79 to achieve better game balance. The certification level required for the 'Inferno' is too low to warrant such a high speed. Please note that engines of this speed (90+) and greater can still be looted and manufactured, but with high enough certification levels as to keep the game balanced. Existing 92 speed "reward" engines will not be affected, but will decay with damage as any other component would.

Publish 14 (GCW updates, Entertainers content, Vendor searching)Edit

Publish 14 Notes for 9 March 05Edit

This publish includes tweaks and fixes for the GCW, some more UI loving and a new story Arc!

Quests Edit

Today begins the first part of a new epic quest series called "Secrets of the Syren"! Who is the pilot that everyone is searching for? What was the dangerous cargo he was carrying that both Imperials and Rebels want so desperately? Rebels should report immediately to the Tyrena Cantina, Imperials to the Bestine Cantina and Neutrals to the Theed Cantina!

GCW Edit

  • Increased the difficulty of higher level faction base spawns. (Now that the rebel and imperial faction bases spawned entity difficulty and numbers have recently been brought into balance with each other, the difficulty of the spawns at bases higher than the forward operating bases are being increased)
  • PvE (non SF) faction bases can no longer have control terminal menu options for resetting their vulnerability timer (which shouldn't have been there anyhow, since PvE bases are always supposed to be vulnerable), nor can you shut them down to abort a self-destruct countdown, once started (which better fits the non-PvP nature of these bases).
  • Added hacked terminal and base destruction alarms to factional bases
  • Added exterior reinforcement spawner to hacked factional bases
  • Decreased point cost of faction turrets
  • Decreased point cost of the factional forward operating bases
  • Factional base deeds should now indicate what faction they are for by their name.
  • Increased GCW point value of factional bases for all bases higher than Forward Operating Base
  • Slightly increased cost of Tactical Center to bring it in line with the increased toughness of its spawns
  • Fixed an issue where Imperial guards were spawning and entering Moenian cantinas
  • Fixed rank display in recruiter conversations
  • News terminals will now always open the news headlines when you double click on them
  • Fixed several bad faction base objective-terminal spawn locations and orientations
  • Fixed terminals only working if you were special forces
  • Added roving security personnel to hacked factional bases
  • Fixed a bug where objects could block players from entering factional bases
  • Changed how GCW faction perk costs are changed based on GCW status. There was a bug that caused items to get cheaper as you started to lose. This was incorrect and backwards. If you are losing, items get more expensive on that planet.

AI Edit

  • Fixed a bug where AI would warp when moving towards a destination (such as fleeing, etc.)

UI Edit

  • There are 4 new key bindings that are not mapped to any key-binding at this time. When bound, they should filter out friends and enemies in a previous next manner
  • Player movement should now feel "snappier" (run, walk and turn rates have been accelerated)
  • Hovering over a blip on the radar will display tooltip information about the blip.
  • Fixed an issue where the buff window would reset when a player logged out or relogged.
  • Planetmap should honor the show all cities flag.
  • Fixed an issue where players could not run through streetlamps
  • If the quest journal is open when a task or quest completes, it will now update correctly.
  • Duplicate journal entries will only be displayed once. (e.g. Darn Droid listed a speak task 3 times before).
  • Destroy, loot, and timer tasks will have a progress counter in the journal. (e.g.. "Killed: 2/10" will show in the journal description for a kill 10 worrts task).
  • Tooltips on the radar will now display instantly
  • The waypoint window in the datapad window will no longer overlap the checkboxes in the detail view
  • Radar opacity should ignore UI opacity setting
  • Improved double click options:
    • Double-clicking on NPCs will display the appropriate messages and perform the proper actions.
    • Double-clicking an incapacitated player will death-blow them.
    • Double-clicking on your mount will mount or dismount you.
    • Double-clicking on a crafting station will start a crafting session with a compatible crafting tool in your inventory

Loot Edit

  • Giant Canyon and Krayt Ancient Dragons should drop pearls at their normal drop rate
  • Nightsisters should drop crystals at their normal drop rate
  • Fixed a problem with all high-end loot drop rates
  • Fixed an issue that no longer allows dead players to loot factional pets and dead players

Player Cities Edit

  • Fixed a problem where some Mayors cannot send ingame emails to citizens

Player Event Perks Edit

  • Changed faction perk gating to fix coverts not being able to wear armor

Vet Rewards Edit

  • Anti Decay Kits that were placed inside house containers such as a bookcase or armoire will now have a "Pickup" radial menu option.

Misc. Edit

  • Fixed an issue where players would experience a crash to desktop in /alarmsnooze if no alarms were previously set
  • Japanese Localization Fixes
  • Fixed some issues that would cause players to crash to desktop

Publish 14.1 - Update Notes: March 24, 2005

Galaxy-wide Vendor Search is here!

Have you ever wanted to search for an item to buy without having to travel across the entire planet randomly checking vendors? Well now you can! We have enhanced the functionality of our bazaar terminals to include the ability to search all player vendors for items you may be looking for. This new feature will greatly improve how vendors are handled in the game. Read on for more information.

Overview The purpose of vendor search function is to allow vendor owned items to be searched from anywhere in the galaxy. This will include the following functions:

  • Each vendor owner can decide whether to allow his or her vendors to be searchable in the market. There is an option for vendor owners to turn on/off the search option on his or her vendor. The vendor owner will be able to find current search option settings for each of his or her vendor(s)
  • When a vendor owner turns on the search option, a player should be able to go to any bazaar and list all items owned by this vendor
  • When a vendor owner turns off the search option, the vendor is no longer listed in the galaxy-wide network search. With this search option turned off, vendor owners have the ability to conduct private auctions. Players will need to physically go to the vendor and click "Use Vendor" to list items from this vendor.

Vendor Status For all the existing vendors, the default option is set to no. Players have to go to their vendors and enable this search option. For all future vendors, this option is set to yes by default. For vendor owners to check if the search option is on or off do the following:

  • Select the Vendor you wish to turn search on/off for
  • From the radial menu choose "Vendor Control"
    Once you have selected "Vendor Control" then choose "Status"
  • A pop-up window will show if the search option is on or off

PA Hall Leadership SuccessionEdit

Overview In the current live environment, a PA does not automatically handle the case where a PA leader has retired from the game. This condition results in leaderless PAs, often with active members who wish to continue to run the guild. In order to resolve this system, we will implement an automated PA succession system.
Allegiance The existing "Allegiance" system interface will be removed. Instead, guild leaders will be able to turn on voting at any time. Every two weeks, the votes will be tallied and a new guild leader selected. This is to allow guilds the option of a democratic process. Not all guilds will want to enable this option. Guild leader voting will default to off.

PA Hall Leadership Succession There are now two methods for PA Hall Leadership Succession: direct leadership transfer and leader elections as explained below.

Direct Transfer Direct leadership transfer is executed by the current PA leader at the PA management terminal. The leader would select the "Transfer PA Leadership" option at the terminal. They are then prompted to enter the name of the person who will receive leadership. This person must be online and be standing near the terminal. The person who will receive leadership must also have enough lots free to take ownership of the PA hall. If they satisfy the requirements, the PA leadership and the PA hall ownership will be transferred to them. If they do not satisfy the requirements, the existing leader will receive a message as to why the change could not be made. Trial accounts are not eligible for leadership or PA hall ownership.

Elections During the regular weekly PA maintenance, the system will examine the last login time of the PA leader. If they have not logged in for one month, the system will send an email warning to the PA members. The warning will explain that the leader has not been active and that a voting process for a new leader has been opened.

The voting process will use the same interface as player city voting. Three options will become available on the guild management terminal during voting:

  1. Register / Unregister - Any full PA member may run for election. They would select this option to add themselves to the ballot. Only members on the ballot are eligible for election. Any guild member in normal standing can register to run. Sponsored applicants will not be eligible to run.
  2. Cast Vote - This option allows a member to select who they wish to vote for. They may also choose to abstain. A member may change their vote at any time
  3. View Standings - allows the player to look at who is currently registered and how many votes they have received.

Exactly two weeks after the election is started, the votes will be tallied. The individual with the most votes will become leader of the PA.

In many cases, the owner of a PA hall and the PA leader will be different characters. In order to prevent a PA from losing a PA hall due to the absence of the hall owner, PA leaders now have a limited ability to claim PA halls they do not own. A new guild terminal option "Accept PA Hall" will appear (for guild leader) if the hall owner has not logged in for 28 days. Once the guild leader owns the hall, the structure may be transferred to another player using the /transferStructure command.

    • Story Arc: Secrets of the Syren, Chapter two; More Than You Bargained For
      • Breaking News: Information has been received regarding the missing freighter pilot from Naboo. While this information has not been made public, a Rebel Officer in Tyrena as well as an Imperial Officer in Bestine and a private citizen in Theed have all been seen in talks with the various parties involved in the search. This raises the question of the seriousness of this situation. Parties involved in the initial search for this pilot are encouraged to talk to their initial contact.
    • Quest: Enough!
      • From the journal of a holonews reporter: Looks like the fighting was rather rough in Corellia space today. I had the opportunity to actually see some of the fighting. I could kick myself for not bringing my holo-recorder! It appeared to end in a draw, but of course I can't actually report that! Interestingly, two ships crashed: one on Talus and the other on Corellia. Sources tell me that an Imperial officer named Ceth Laike at the Imperial Outpost in Talus is looking for the pilot of one of these ships. A Rebel named Acun Solari in Tyrena is looking for the other. I hope they didn't land in bad spots. Sometimes the local gangs salvage parts off of downed ships
    • Quest: Imperial Defector
      1. $! Encrypted transmission from Jom Irimore, Rebel Alliance cell member in Tyrena to Teslo Ten'doora at the base. Sir, I have a new contact. Another member of the Imperial Military (a high-ranking one, I might add) is going to supply us with information. I'll send someone to bring him to you as soon as possible. I trust in this officer's defection. Apparently, his entire family was on Alderaan. End transmission ^#)%)()(@!#^###
    • Quest: Rebel Informant
      To: Lt. Allard Lissara
      From: Jaek Vercet, Imperial Representative to Moenia

      You were correct, sir. Those rebels are starting to cave. One of them came to me, telling me about a rift in the Alliance's leadership. He's willing to give us information if we offer him immunity for his treason. I leave that decision to you. I'm laying low in one of the buildings in town and will need to send someone to bring the Rebel to you.

Player Event PerksEdit
