i know this has been said b well i think anyways does any one know if there is gonna be x wings etc and can u fight in space like XWA or xwing vs tie fighter

Com Raven
03-12-2002, 10:12 AM
Not from the begining on, but 6 months after launch, there'll be the space expansion....

03-13-2002, 02:40 AM
I could see that someone could buy a x-wing, after all they are made by the same company that makes the headhunter right? But could someone buy a tie fighter? Otherwise without imperial service how could someone fly one?

Com Raven
03-13-2002, 10:13 AM
Well, I guess we'll have to wait just a bit longer for some real info on the x-pack....

03-13-2002, 06:29 PM
It may well be that you have to be a declared imperial to get your hands on a tie fighter. We know that there will be faction specific equipment.

:tied: :vsd: :tie: :deathii:

03-14-2002, 04:12 AM
the space xpack is in quite indepth discussionover at the other SWG forums
outcasting too

Com Raven
03-14-2002, 06:22 AM
Too much freaks like me over there...:D

Wraith 8
03-14-2002, 10:24 AM
well com... we are still on for those X-wings arent we??? :D :D

Com Raven
03-14-2002, 10:28 AM
We'll sure try it, if we can't get some how about a freighter ??

Wraith 8
03-14-2002, 04:59 PM
yeah... that would be cool too... something like a correllian one???? like a YT-2400

Com Raven
03-15-2002, 06:52 AM
Yup, those are cool

Watch out Dash Rendar, here comes us....

Wraith 8
03-15-2002, 01:26 PM
yeah wooohooooo...
hey if we ever pilot that thing.... we will be pilot at trun ok? :D :D

Jan Gaarni
03-16-2002, 07:46 AM
Well, if I get myself a freighter once, it'll be the YT-2000. Always though the looked soo cool. :D

But I'll also perhaps settle with a YT-1300, though they are alittle okd and outdated. ;)

As fighters go, either a Headhunter or X-Wing, preferably X-Wing. :D

Wraith 8
03-16-2002, 09:39 AM
well the Otana looked good.... no questions there.... but i think the Outrider looked more cool than the Otana.... and a YT-1300.... well like you said... it is a bit old.... but euh... what will be the prices of some ship like that??

03-16-2002, 08:32 PM
At this point nobody has a clue.

Sounds Risky
03-17-2002, 01:53 AM
All I want is a Swoop.

Wraith 8
03-18-2002, 02:42 AM
swoop???? help me out... what ship is that??

03-18-2002, 03:06 AM
Isn't a swoop the thing luke would kill those rat things with in beggers canyon?

Wraith 8
03-18-2002, 05:04 AM
you mean that 3 winged fly thingie he was playing with??? in the first movie??

03-18-2002, 08:58 AM
yup I think so, I remember when that darklighter guy who he sees in the hanger in episode 4 right before they go out to attack the death star, at their mission briefing that guy goes "we can't hit a target that small" and luke says "it'll be just like shooting whateverthehellhesays in beggers canyon at home".

Or was that wedge antilles he sees in the hanger?

Jan Gaarni
03-18-2002, 09:00 AM
No, that's a T-16 Skyhopper. You can see it in the background in his shop. Come to think of it, yes, that's also the model he is playing with.

It's Biggs Darklighter he talks to in the hanger, and Wedge Antilles I believe in the briefing room. Just to clearify. :D

When he says Swoop, he means a Swoop Bike. Looks like a Harley .... without the wheels. :D
And THAT ain't a ship, OCH. :D

Wraith 8
03-18-2002, 10:26 AM
Hey isnt that the bike that guy drives in the special edition of a new hope and almost crashes into that ronto with the 2 jawa on it??

Real spoiler down here.... no joke ... but i think a lot of folks already knew it :D
And isnt that the same bike Anakin is gonna use in episode II??

Jan Gaarni
03-18-2002, 02:18 PM

Wraith 8
03-18-2002, 06:02 PM
coool..... yeah... use the spoiler boxes wisely..... cause they should not be abused.... :D

Sounds Risky
03-18-2002, 07:16 PM
I should have said Swoop Bike, then nobody's heads would have exploded. Yes, it isn't a ship but I won't need a ship when my job is going to be hunting Krayt Dragons.

You can see Swoop Bikes in the Special Edition of A New Hope and in The Phantom Menace as well as in one of the Attack of the Clones trailers.

Wraith 8
03-19-2002, 03:50 AM
So you will be found on Tattooine all the time.... will your name be OCH????

so i see all of you think very highly of yourselfs :D...

Sounds Risky
03-19-2002, 09:29 PM
Hard to say right now if I'd always be on Tatooine. Never know when you might find out your father was a Jedi or something like that.

At the moment though, I'm planning on starting out at Tatooine as a Krayt Dragon hunter. Damn that sounds cool.

I'd also more than likely be OCH.

Wraith 8
03-20-2002, 02:51 AM
cool.... so if you ever need a transport out of there... contact me :D

Jan Gaarni
03-20-2002, 09:22 AM

come on Com... lets just shoot him :D :D :D

03-28-2002, 05:04 AM
do you think a group of friends will be able to hijak a bigger ship? like say disable a small destroyer and take it as your own....that would be cool.

Wraith 8
03-28-2002, 06:59 AM
well i read the entire FAQ... and it sais nothing of that sort... maybe in the space expansion... it will be revealed....

03-28-2002, 10:34 AM
my name will be hmmm......I'd use Rogue15 but it wouldn't be allowed so i'll need to use Kioet Csuhen.

I'll be a Trandoshan and be a weapons salesman.

My craft will be either an Imperial Landing Craft, A-Wing, Stormtrooper Transport, or Corellian Corvette.

Once i make enough $$$$ from weapons dealing i'll become a bounty hunter or body guard.

Wraith 8
03-29-2002, 07:02 AM

04-13-2002, 12:12 PM
Actually, I was busy trying to stay alive...

04-13-2002, 12:24 PM
I think it's kinda funny that everyone and their grandmother are already saying, "I'm going to have X ship" or "I'll steal X and do Y". I mean, sure, the FAQs are detailed enough, but we don't know for certain (at least most of us *pokes beta testers*) how things are really going to work. I see people saying, "I'jm going to buy a T-65", or "I'm gonna ge a Z-95". Sorry to dampen the occasion, but both these are military-grade ships. They won't just be sat on a dock somewhere waiting to be 'harvested', as it were. I seem to remember somewhere that a Z-95 (according to SW canon) costs 1.5M credits. No doubt some of the big PAs are going to have that sort of cast lying around, but smaller ones, and single players, are not. I'm also guessing that a Z-95 kinda pushes the limit on the class of ship you could easily acquire. TIEs, certainly, are military ships, and are used only by the Imperial Navy and planetary governments. At the end of the day, you'll probably be flying around in the cargo hauler for quite a while. Freighters are another aspect. Take the average YT-1300. A basic, unmodified one is described in several places as "something you wouldn't want to take on a TIE in". Now, considering the TIE's reputation for...erm...stability *whistle* I think a lot of people are going to be in for a shock when they try to buzz an ISD. Hell, I might be wrong about all this. I certainly hope so. But it stands to reason that, if the SWG team are attempting to make the game as realistic as possible, there are going to be a LOT of safeguards against individuals obtaining impressive ships.
As for me, just gimme a cruise liner...anything I can make money off =)
*Flame-guard enabled*

Com Raven
04-14-2002, 10:06 AM
Yeah, well sure, that's why I'll be stealing an ewok glider..

Jan Gaarni
04-14-2002, 07:58 PM
Wings_SWmud, I've said this before I think. :)
ISD's are most definatly not going to be available to buy,
1) because the number of crewmen it needs,
2) cost,
3) and it's mlitary hardware produced exclusivly for the Empire.
The last part is the same for the Tie crafts.

The Z-95 Headhunter is another matter. These ships are available to anyone that want one.
X-wings can possible be available. If they are, most likely you must aquire one on the black market.

... that a Z-95 (according to SW canon) costs 1.5M credits.
Where is this SW canon, may I see it? :)

04-15-2002, 02:18 PM
Sure...gimme a couple hours to find it

Oh, and I never said anything about BUYING an ISD - just doing a flyby. On a more positive note...CR90s are "oficially" classed as freighters, not capital ships, so hopefully we'll be seeing a few of those screeching round =)

Well, can't find the Z-95 thingy, but I did find a couple things that might put people off buying one outright, but will probably help overall sales, due to the contributions to the economy that could possibly be made...

-No hyperdrive (I guess a big market for people with ship design skills then...)

-Slow (only 85MGLT)

-Ugly (Will this be a concern? Looking at the sort of people we have here *ducks) =)

-Armament is hardly impressive (Version-dependent though; I3 had armament roughly twice as superior as the RZ-1)

-Weak shields (Hull is famously sturdy, however)

04-15-2002, 02:31 PM
Hey Raven...you'll kill us all as long as we don't use anything more technologically advanced than a rock...if we use rocks, however, you're done for :trooper: :ewok:

Jan Gaarni
04-15-2002, 08:30 PM
Oh, and I never said anything about BUYING an ISD - just doing a flyby.
Neither did I say you did, :) but I did misunderstand that part still. :D I was agreeing with you that ISDs are not going to be available to buy. That's all. It was mentioned earlier in another thread. :)
-No hyperdrive (I guess a big market for people with ship design skills then...)
From the factories they come without a hyperdrive, but one can be fitted if needs be. Still not disagreeing with ya, just adding. ;)

Q: What's an CR90 again? It sounds familiar. Thought for a moment that you meant a MC90 (Mon Cal Cruiser), but that can't be it.

04-15-2002, 09:00 PM
The Z-95s in the X-wing/Tie Fighter series of games had hyperdrives. I know its not exactly cannon, but its the best look at Z-95s we have.

Ah, here we go. From starwars.com
Z-95s are typically not equipped with hyperdrive engines, though famed Republic (and later Alliance) tactician Adar Tallon developed a variant -- the Z-95t -- which featured a class 3 hyperdrive, and increased maneuverability. Later Z-95s did feature an Incom Gbk-435 hyperdrive motivator, and a Narmox Zr-390 navicomputer system.

Wraith 8
04-18-2002, 12:11 PM
so... are there any info wich ships there will be in the game???

04-18-2002, 05:48 PM
We have nothing official. The Devs have been almost totally silent about what will be in the space expansion. Anytime someone asks them they just get the old "you'll have to wait and find out" line.

04-18-2002, 07:33 PM
Sorry, got a bit over-teched...CR90 is just the model of Corellian 'vette we all know and love =)

Anyway...the versions of the Z-95 that are for sale with hyperdrive probably wouldn't be able to be bought, I would think - enough planets still use them as front-line fighters that they would b ereserved for military...but this would, in a way, be a good thing...after all, if you can just go out and buy a top-of-the-line fighter, there's not so much use for ship crafting skills, aye?

04-18-2002, 07:35 PM
Actually OCH I believe in the FAQ it says that the game picks a name for you, with a PROPER first and last name. ex: Raith Sienar. So you SOL on OCH name. one thing, Are you gonna be the Krayt Hunta instead of the Croc Hunter?:D

Wraith 8
04-19-2002, 04:50 AM
soooo..... we cant exactly choose the name??

Com Raven
04-19-2002, 10:09 AM
Rocks ??
Damn, have to go back to the lab then....

Z 95s are pretty cheap in the rpg...

04-19-2002, 08:12 PM
Pssst...Raven...I can, you know, "supply" you with some rocks...you'll be paying for a few years...but you can knock out an entire legion of stormtroopers with one!

*Is STILL bitter about the Battle of Endor*

Com Raven
04-20-2002, 06:00 PM
Hah, it just showed how deadly underestimating an enemy can be...

04-20-2002, 06:42 PM
More importantly, it goes to show how dangerous rocks really are. I think the international community must act immediatly to remove this threat. I propose a limit to the number of rocks each country can have in its arsenal as well as an immediate and unilateral ban on all above ground rock testing. We can call it something like the Strategic Rock Limitation Treaty.

Maybe we should even look into the creation of a space based anti-rock system as well. ;)

Jan Gaarni
04-20-2002, 07:33 PM
Maybe we should even look into the creation of a space based anti-rock system as well.

the kind of ship i really want is a drednaught... not really... i really want a ship like the Cloakshape Fighter (from the guide to vehicles and vessels), or a Corellian YV-666 like bossk has, or maybe a marauder corvette. Or even better, a star viper like Xizor, or a skipray blastboat. Or an Action VI like Talon Karrde. The possibilities are endless!:evil2: :jango: :clone: mwhahahahaha

yeah, skiprays are pretty cool...

04-27-2002, 06:09 PM
euh..... question... you can have just ONE charachter... not 2 or more right?

04-27-2002, 06:50 PM
No. We will be able to have more than one character per account/server. They haven't said just what the limit will be, but we know its more than one.

Com Raven
04-27-2002, 07:13 PM
wasn't there talk of 5 per account ??

04-27-2002, 09:17 PM
There's been talk about all kinds of numbers among the community. The developers have told us nothing other than it will be more than one.

04-28-2002, 01:33 AM

Howdy stranger. :D

Welcome to our little corner of the Star Wars Galaxy. How much would it cost to take out a bounty on Wriath 8 if he comes running through the topic again?

04-28-2002, 01:55 AM
800 credits, hey, thats my discount :p


04-28-2002, 03:44 AM
Dang, you're expensive. Never mind. I'll just set up another tripwire until Com Raven comes up with something "more devious".

Jan Gaarni
04-28-2002, 05:25 AM
*puts up several bear traps*

Is that devious enough for ya? :D :D :D

04-28-2002, 02:17 PM
It's a good start. ;)

Com Raven
04-28-2002, 04:56 PM
poison !!

that's the trick ,isn't it...

04-28-2002, 05:09 PM
So let me see if I understand this.

1. Wraith 8 trips and falls because of my tripwire.

2. When he falls he lands face first in Jan's bear trap.

3. While he's struggling to get out of the bear trap, Com Raven runs up and injects him with a poison filled syrnge.

That sounds pretty devious to me. Who needs bounty hunters anyway? ;)

04-29-2002, 02:28 AM
Haha I vote we suddece him witha dancing Gammorean in a Thong, that should help. But any as for a questiong is there s semi-defintive, or even tenative list of the ships we will be able to get int the exp?

First of all, let me say hello and welcome.

Second, that dancing Gammorean is an immage I REALLY didn't need.

As for your questions, we don't have anything from the developers at all on what types of ships will be in the space expansion. In fact they have been giving us absolutely nothing about the space expansion so far. Any list of ships would be pure speculation, but its a good bet we will see Tie Fighters, Y-wings, X-wings, Z95 Headhunters and an assortment of light freighters. Some of these (like Tie Fighters) you may not have access to unless you belong to a particular faction.

We don't know exactly what skills will be required for piloting, but you can probably (at the very least) build up some basic skills that will help you become a pilot later.
