I hope they are not gonna use the HoloNet, since that's subordinated for use by the military only. :)

Thats great. In game email will keep comms open exceptionally well. I guess a follow up question is: If I am out in the middle of noplace and no hardline to email from, am I not going to be able to use email?

You guys are answering my questions quickly and I appreciate it........:D

In such an evolved technological era, everyone uses WLAN! :D

Well, there isn't really a hardline in Star Wars, so you could communicate with people all over the galaxy. The only problems they've had in the movies are sandstorms, lots of rain, and distance. It would be hard to work these things into the game though, so I don't think there will be any problems.

WLAN, don't you need cell phone towers for those? I know I didn't see any of those in the films....

They will have mb's and chat rooms. PM too.

Nah, for WLAN, you only need some wireless hubs here and there. And those were hidden under small rocks when the movies were filmed.

carrier pigeon.

Thats it. My profession will now be Creature tamer and I will raise the bestest carrier pidgeons out there.:p

They have pigeons in SW???

And will there actually be birds in SWG?

06-22-2003, 08:40 PM
No, there's no pidgeons. But there are birds, and evil, human-eating birds!

And ducks.

No really, ducks. :)

And swanes.

Hey, Star Wars even has horses. ;) You can see 2 statues of them on top of an arch in Theed.

So the human race isn't the only thing we share with it. :p
