This is a post designed for one thing: The formation of the Underground! In case you haven't read the previous post related to this topic, the Underground is an idea I came up with for we the members of the SWG forum to band together in a loose alliance and support each other once the game is released. We are going to need members of all classes, particularly manufacturers, designers, etc. If there is a class you want to be, put your name down! Only reply if you have a request to be a class representative, however; this isn't a thread for talking. If we have duplicates or multiple people wanting the same class, we will have a further discussion. So there you have it folks, make your marks in the Star Wars Galaxies!

First off, we have

Rommel as weapons manufacturer

and I believe

Darth Maxx wanted to be a droid builder.

As for me, I'm going for bounty hunter at the moment and that's not very useful if the bounties are random, so I'll just remain as an organizer in the Underground.

alright, so we got ourselves a politician. maybe you can be kind enough to build us a city too =). so here we are so far

Gun manufacturer- Rommel

Droid maker- Darth Maxx (I think)

Politician- Greg g

I'll be a trader, and after the expansion comes out I'll be an offworld trader. There will probably be some space left on my cargo hauler, or cargo speeder to carry some people, rare goods or blasters for a good cause (a good cause for me that is) .

Rommel
05-12-2002, 06:06 AM
Maybe Arguille can be the designer for the weapons? At first yes I'll be able to manufacturer stuff I design but as I get designers contracted I'll be putting more and more skill points into manufacturing (for better quality of things I manufacture).

What would be very cool is if we could start a town!

Rommel

Designer
Manufacturer
Meglomaniac
Rich Bastard

Zendjir
05-12-2002, 06:12 AM
Yeah, a manufacturing town! It could be a moving town; like a giant sandcrawler that will move from one recource spot to another. We could get the things we need by giving out missions like:

- Fetch me some of those minerals in a specific period of time
- Create a design for xxxx credits
- Sabotage the manufacturing capabilities of the other PA town (hehe)
- Protect our convoys as they head to the various markets.

That way, our town will be swarming with players looking for a job, if our business is big enough that is.

im on board if you guys can work it out. we'll need a miner next so we need to recruit someone. that way me rommel and the miner can take care o' bitness and our local politician can put up some big tariffs on outside trader punks. i wanna make anything BUT droids (particularly weapons and armor...maybe some clothing depending on how many skill points we get) so theres no cross over yet.

also, we will all need to start on the same planet. id prefer naboo, but im flexible.

i (of course) wanna make a second char to try for jedi, and i know ill have a human and a zabrak. i havent decided which will be which yet (zabrak jedi, human designer, or zabrak designer, human jedi) and im open to suggestions for which you guys would prefer working with. human might be easier to work with on the market. lemme know what you guys think.

Darth Maxx
05-12-2002, 02:02 PM
I'd rather begin on Tatooine.
Do we have a name yet?

Zendjir
05-12-2002, 02:03 PM
It would make sense to start on the most popular planet = more customers. But I don't know which planet that is.

I was wondering, are we going to start a PA-town? If so, we need someone to defend it, or create defensive turrets. And what faction will our PA belong to? I personally would go for neutral, because it means that noone can attack you (without punishment).

arguile
05-12-2002, 02:12 PM
yeah i kinda agree with the neutral thing. of course would we choose not to trade with a faction? if we traded with more than one we might get in trouble with all of them.

youre right though, we will need to find a way to defend the town, i doubt if our one bounty hunter can do it alone, since he'll be out on missions. i guess we would need to make some attack droids first since we the professions to do that now.

Maxx, tatooine was my second choice. but it is a desert so what kind of materials would you find there? i guess there will be equal kinds, but id rather pick a prettier spot.

oh yeah, almost forgot. as soon as we come up with a name we better move to the PA section before someone comes over mad at us for being in the wrong place. id settle for just the name of the forum as the PA name for now.

Zendjir
05-12-2002, 02:33 PM
The defense of the town should be automatic (NPC controlled) It would not be pretty to see the town destroyed just because there were not enough players to defend it. I dont know how NPC hiring in SWG is done, but If every1 could supply the town with at least 3 defenders we should stand a chance of defending the town while the players are away.

Keep in mind that when we are neutral we need far less defenses than when we are declared; enough to scare of small groups of griefers and animals.

And the name of the forum as the PA name for the time being seems fine to me.

Tatooine is first choice for me too; if there are enough minerals and customers there. The customer thingy wont be such a big issue when the space expansion comes out.

arguile
05-12-2002, 03:54 PM
i think either tatooine or naboo will be most popular, but they will also have some restrictions on building probably, because of continuity stuff.

I dont know about NPCs as gaurds. players will probably be better fighters than NPCs. i think droids would do best with what we have so far.

ok...now its up to our trusty bounty hunter/ organizer. what do you think Gaalgoth?

Lord Helmet
05-12-2002, 03:57 PM
what the name of the planet that is one big city frome episode 1?

if thats in the gmae we go there for trade

Jan Gaarni
05-12-2002, 04:27 PM
You mean Coruscant?

Forget it. Has a low probability of seeing the daylight.
With 256 square kilometers to cover - not only vertically - but also horizontly this would become a huge file just in it's self. :(

Would have been fun to see the sunsets there though. :p

Zendjir
05-12-2002, 05:16 PM
My guess is coruscant will be an expansion someday;

Because the planet plays such an important role in the story, and is the capital-planet of the empire and the galaxy itself. The game will not really be complete without it. Imagine what you could do on that planet, sooo many things!

But from what I have seen, the developers want to give the customers what they expect on every aspect of this game. Therefore, alot of work is required for coruscant, easily a years work. Thats why it will probably not be included in the initial release.

Gaalgoth
05-12-2002, 05:20 PM
So now we have several people. This is good; I'm glad everyone is getting together on this. I believe that Tattooiene will be the best choice for a home planet, if for no other reason because it is such a center of trade in the star wars galaxy. If we can get our place set up in the beginning, then once the game really picks up I am sure that we will make a lot of profit.

Darth Maxx
05-12-2002, 05:27 PM

You got a point there....hmmm

We better get the locations of every1 (continent-wise)

I live in Europe

Gaalgoth
05-12-2002, 05:30 PM
No one has said much about the servers, but hopefully if they are divided like that it will be like d 2 and you can choose to be on a different server even if you do not live on that server's area. If not, our underground could be screwed.......as for a name, I'm not sure yet. You all start coming up with ideas, best one we'll use. No rush though, it's still a ways off. Once the school year is over I'll be able to focus much more time and energy into this, and i'll really be able to draw up a full plan and everything.

Darth Maxx
05-12-2002, 05:32 PM
Why won't we start be sharing some messenger adresses? Or meet somewhere on IRC. But on the other hand the time difference is irritating.

Gaalgoth

That's not a bad idea, but we'll have to wait to do that. LEts wait till summer or a weekend; that way everyone can be on no matter what the time because of fewer responsibilities.

Darth Maxx
05-12-2002, 05:35 PM

we gotta get a name though so we can move over the the PA section and not crowd this board. i say we just have a makeshift one of like "the forum PA" to use for now so we can go ahead and move, and then when someone is struck with a moment of inspiration and a good name pops up, we can talk about changing it.

Tatooine isnt a centre of anything in the Galaxy. It's a backwater planet nobody's heard of.

arguile
05-13-2002, 01:22 AM
sure it is. its the center of jabba the hutts evil crime syndicate. in the movies its "the remote world of tatooine" but in Star Wars Galaxies, the game, itll be a huge planet that will no doubt be popular because of its movie heritage. in the game, i have little doubt that it will be a center of trade, indeed.

05-13-2002, 02:26 AM
In terms of the story it was. It was a far flung planet, sure it housed a big crime syndicate but it wasn't the centre of trading :).

Who knows its fate in SWG, i was just commenting on it situation from the movies.

well.. i have been with this forum since the day it came online.
so im game :D

about the server thingy... i play a lot of Tiberian Sun online.. and the westwood servers are on the US, UK Europe and Asia.
i usualy just log on the US or the UK server.. and i guess that the same thing will happen to the SWgalaxies server.. you can just choose wich server you wish to log on to.

and the name.... we need a catchy name i think... and if we go with a name.. then we need some sort of good motto or something.

and Tattooine isnt the best planet for rescources... i think you should choose Correllia or Naboo.. they are pretty and high in recsources... and Corellia is already a trade planet and close to the central systems...

Wraith 8 is in :D
oh and if we need a hompage for our PA... im recomending myself as builder :D

I hope you arent referring to me as a N00b.....(hint: game is not released yet.)

I guess what Im asking is what would your self proclaimed leadership offer the forum community that is not allready taken care of by us that we do not have allready.

If I need to simplify :

Seems to me that the forum is allready a self sustained close knit community, regardless of any official membership into your group. It kind of sounds like you just want to be in charge of something that allready exhist.

Oh and in regards to low post count. Just because we dont post doesnt mean we cant read. And from all my reading in any game forum, there is always the one guy who thinks he's a master just cause he has an infinite amount of meaningless post.

If thats the kind of one sidedness and (the earlier post was meant for humor only) humorless retaliation you will exhibit from your "figurhead position" count me out.

Jan Gaarni
05-15-2002, 05:16 PM
Before Gaalgoth snaps once he sees your post, Koffin - which I predict he will :p lol j/k ;) - let me clearify the term n00b for ya.

N00b - Also known as newbie, meaning you are new to something - in this case these boards.

Now,
Seems to me that the forum is allready a self sustained close knit community, regardless of any official membership into your group. It kind of sounds like you just want to be in charge of something that allready exhist.
So, what if he does?
Almost all PA leaders have the desire to be in charge, otherwise they wouldn't be leaders. And it's not like we are complaining about it either. Hell, even Wraith is in. And he predates all of us on this forum.
Oh and in regards to low post count. Just because we dont post doesnt mean we cant read. And from all my reading in any game forum, there is always the one guy who thinks he's a master just cause he has an infinite amount of meaningless post.
True...
and...
true.
However, Gaalgoth does not think he is a Master (I have yet to see a post made by him that made me think he believes he is), nor is he one.
Besides, I'm the Master around here. :D
Ok, ok, so Wraith is. :p
If thats the kind of one sidedness and (the earlier post was meant for humor only) humorless retaliation you will exhibit from your "figurhead position" count me out.
See, this is exactly why smilies :) are sooo important to use. :p
Noone's a mindreader you know. ;)

Now, with that out of the way, Koffin got me thinking.
Even though this group was originally intended to be a get-together-once-in-awhile gang, it does start to sound like a fully working PA group.
Not that i mind, I'm still in. :p

Just becasue mods dont hang out here YET.. doesnt mean we can flame and or spam this forums up to the limit.. has been done on other forums.. and it didnt leave much of a nice forum left...

Gaarni has covered some of this already, so alot of what I was going to say I'm going to spare you from reading even though you claim to be able to read oh-so-well. But read this bub. We are a pretty close-knit group, but you need to have a system of order in something like this. As the leader of this PA, I'm not really ordering anyone around; I'm letting them choose their positions and I'm not reaping any extra benefits. They all have as much power as I do in The Associates. We are just a group of friends and I'm making it formal so there will be structure. And no mattter how much you have read, kid, you are still a n00b on these boards until you actually post and show some knowledge. No, post count isn't everything, but it does say something when you haven't even broken the double digits and you start bashing on an organization that everyone has joined on their own free will and are obviously glad to be a part of being that they have backed me up. I'm not ordering them around and I'm not compensating for something. I'm just a man with an idea and I don't like little punks talking about things that they don't know anything about.

You get in a huff cause I make a comment about you taking over the galaxy, and you say I dont know what Im talking about. You want to smash me like the forum leader you are thats fine for me. I guess Im close to getting banned if I offer an opinion you dont agree with.

Kudos to the guys that came to your aid. See how they argued against me but did it intelligently? They even convinced me that your PA is not such a bad idea.

You on the other hand are still as juvenile as your first reply to my post. The guys in your PA seem decent enough but if I can get you so riled up with so few words your PA is more than likely going to fall hard the first time you get upset with your members.

Hey, at least I know Im a jerk, and given a good debate, Ill be the firt to admit Im wrong. But if you want to win an argument or debate with me, impress me with multiple syllables, not wrestling lingo in caps.

My opinion on this matter:

To Koffin, You set off some chain reaction or something about something I don't mind: Gaalgoth's leadership. What's wrong with being a leader, if you do it right, and I think Gaalgoth is doing just that. He's more of a background leader, I like that.

To Gaalgoth, I was suprised by the way you jumped at this guy, this kind of conflict is best solved when you Ignore the one that you have a problem with.

n00b, newbe: a guy or girl that is new to a certain thing. in our case it is the forum. we are all newbe's to the game. we cant say that we master the game yet, cause no one has played it yet.

So guys or girls who say they will rule the galaxy.... just laugh at them and call them newbe's :D.. casue believe you me. they are. :D

now the people who come here for the first time are also newbe's. cause they are new to the forums.
Some time back in September i joined the Rogue squadron.net forums. i got welcomed very nicely. i posted NO threads in the beginning. just replied to a lot of them with sencefull posts. so no nonsence. then when a lot of folks respected me a lot, i started to make jokes and post threads with meaning and eventualy bacame one of the Rogues. they respect me thre now and i respect them. we have become a group of friends.. and have fun all the time. we greet new members in a good way and we never have fights... well almost never.

now at the end of September, i joined up on the X-wing alliance forums. i got yelled at for being a newbe and that i should get the hell out of there. i never returned before merge. i hated that place. and they still treat newbe's like they are gonna kill them. its a tradition there. i do go there now.. but since in got a lot posts.. i get respected there.

now on my registration date is 18 October 2001. that is my birthday :D. i joined up at Galactic battlegrounds.com. i got welcomed like i was the king. they were very nice to me and all. and i try to go there every day.

Now when the forums merged in the LUCAS FORUMS as we all know today. all my posts on these three boards were merged into one and all my names disapeared.. and i kept this one.


What im trying to say with this... is.... that im hoping we will be just like the Rogue Squadron forums and the galactioc battlegrounds forums. to welcome new comers to THIS forum with open arms. but with that i do hope that the new guys or girls will respect these forums and not say they are the king.. casue then.. people will yell at that guy or girl.

Gaalgoth is NOT i repeat, NOT the forum leader. he just is the leader of the PA we all set up. he started it. BUT this PA was set up to let all forum guys and girls know that there are friends in the SWgalaxies. this does not mean that we have to stick together all the time in game. we can all go our seperate way if we want.. just when you need help or have some things to offer.. you can cgo to your forum friends. :)

The forum mod and Admin is:
JUZTYN
He along with MikeC are the SWGalaxies.net updaters.
Gaalgoth just memorizes the entire FAQ :).. so he knows a lot of things about the game already. but he is not the mod here.
and i do hope he knows that :D

hope this again settled some questions.

Oh, Wraith, do you remember me from the SWGB forum? I used to post there while I was on (stage, don't know the english word).

I hope the flaming-matter will be over soon, post some intelligent posts and you'll be respected.

::sigh:: koffin, look. If I had really snapped, I wouldn't have taken the time to right all that about "I'm not going to snap...." etc. It just really does annoy me when people make comments like that. Honestly, I really don't care if you don't like the idea or didn't. It's when you started saying that I was a control freak who was trying to take over something that was already in existence that pissed me off. And you may not be a newbie to SWG, but you are still to this board and until you show some intelligence on the topic then there's really no proof that you aren't a newbie. And it's not even a bad thing to be a newbie...everyone is at some point in time. It's just bad when you are a newbie and you start talking smack about stuff. I'm sorry if I came off as immature, but that's just one of my pet peeves. Honestly though, If I was really all that immature then these people probably would not want to be in a group that I organized. I do admit that I could have handled myself better, but like I said new people lacking respect is something I've seen in many boards I've been a part of and I don't want that to happen here. I'm not going to be a dick and say that you can't join our group or anything like that....If people have convinced you it's a good idea then great, come on and join, but understand that if you don't participate you will be asked to leave. That's not singling you out though, that's the same for everyone. Just please, for my sake and the sake of everyone else, don't be a dick on the boards. I'm going to try and not let my testosterone get the better of me as well.

that was pretty brutal. Koffin shouldnt have attacked gaal like that, after all, he didnt really pick to be the leader, he was just willing to organize everything for us. he took on extra work and is at least entitled to the title of leader.

as for you, Koffin, hope theres no hard feelings. this is all just good fun, and the nOOb title (which i probably still have as well) is just a little hazing for everyone under double digits. i wont bother to repeat what these other guys have said, but i hope this little incident hasnt scared you away from the forums or from this PA for that matter. i hope theres a lesson to be learned from all this; that this PA is gonna be quick to back up its members.

btw, Koffin, Darth Maul rules.

Gee now not only am Im a n00b, Im a dick. Funny how you accuse me of having immature replies in the same post as you accuse me of acting like a dick.

Well now everyone scrole up. The only reason I even got on your case was when you said you hate it when n00bs ..... etc.

After that post it was plain that you cant take even the slightest bit of humor without retaliating and implying that I dont have anything intelligent to say. (For your information, I had my mom proof read everything I said just so I WOULD sound intelligent.)

Now as for further post, all i did was comment on your personality as a leader compared to your not quite subtle means of addressing a stranger. There may be nothing wrong with your idea for your PA, but face it....your politics just sucks.

But it really doesnt matter what I have to say, according to you it wont be intelligent, and I wont even be looked at untill I can sound as smart as you.

Nice to know your the one who judges what is considered intelligent conversation around here. I think I got a good idea of how your fan club is going to run. And like I said before, count me out.

As for me, Im just looking forward to your next post where you claim to defend yourself but really just call me another name.

Ill give you points if you can cry in character.

"your politics just sucks"

Gaalgoth,,

Thaey realy do. Dont get all offended. Hes trying to help ya here.
You way to overly defencive. Maybe your scheme isnt workin out for you and it is getting to you. But by reading your replies and feet stomping because of one thing. You may want to concider starting the Dark Dish Washers Clan. I dont know. Just a suggestion.

guys, lay off the flames. This is just an internet message board. You really don't hurt people with your e-punches and e-kicks. Words on a screen, got it?

who cares if someone is a noobie? we were all noobies at one point in time. Just remember, how long you've been on a message board on the internet means exactly nothing in the real world.

Koffin
05-17-2002, 03:46 PM
Thanks Ikhnaton.....
And wraith, I know this is a flame fest but frankly, I dont care if the admin is watching. If someone can use the phrase "dont be a dick...." maybe its time admin gets involved.

Basicly if some little kid trys to flame me by giving his opinion of my post out to the world, a post i made to just fit in, then I have absolutly no respect for that and Im certainly not going to let it go.

Now dont get me wrong, the topic of this post has long since been strayed from. It also not exactly on top of the list, so I dont have any problem expressing my arguments here.

If you dont like the discussion between me and wonder boy, just dont read it. Or admin can lock it. However this discussion has generated more than Gaalgoth's fould language, it had generated good feed back from other players defending their idea of this PA. I questioned the abilities of the leader and have got nothing more than juvenile responses from him. If I were you, instead of screaming at us to stop, why dont you sit back and evaluate his ability to reason. What better method to test and observe the one who you'v chosen to represent you. And this is also where you can not only decide if he represents your view, you can decide if he deliver's your opinions in a manner in which you approve.



But I gurantee you one thing, not allowing people to stick up for themselves is going to cause alot of problems if you jump them for it.

This was his last post on the matter, he admits he's been wrong a bit and supports the rest with very good arguments (IMO). I think Gaalgoth closed the matter for himself, and I can't find anything where he directly attacks you. He asks you to stop flaming with and he tells that he will stop too.

Case closed, right?

But, noooooooooooo you posted 3 posts, 2 of them flames after that. Can't you stop?

Please, I'm starting to get a little annoyed by this

Therefore, this post has been written with a :snear:

Koffin
05-17-2002, 04:41 PM
uhh zendjir, Ive only posted twice, and the second was a reply to wrath's statement.

And Im only replying to peoples statements. Its called a discussion, allthough it is a heated one.

I certainly dont hate Gaalgoth for calling me a n00b, but I certainly am willing to discuss it as colorfully as I am being discussed. In fact, if he doesnt say another thing about me, Ill have no return fire so to speak.

As for the flame war, who's more guilty, me and Gaalgoth having it out, or our various supporters fueling the flames. Its post like your that keep this going.

Starting to look like the only way to end this is to lock the thread. Cause everytime I think Im out, someone pulls me right back in.

Ikhnaton
05-17-2002, 08:12 PM
Koffin, just because someone "pulls you back in" doesn't mean you have to respond.

In fact, NO ONE has to respond to a flame or other type of insult made on a message board. Do you think you have to defend your honor because someone e-threw the gauntlet? No, you don't have to.

There's all this talk about stuff posted by "kids". If you feel you have to reply to a flame, you're no better off than a kid, no matter how old you are.

I acknowledge that I don't have the best politics in the world, but I did come back and admit that I was wrong. So come on dude, for the sake of the board lets stop flaming. Besides, as long as you have your mom proofreading your stuff there's no way I can sound as intelligent as you. =)

ex. Windex

2. Find a second house hold product with a name consisting of at least two syllables.
ex. Campbells (soup)

3. Switch the syllable from product to product, drop any silent letters.
ex. Winbell Camdex -Imperial Accountant

gavor
05-23-2002, 11:41 PM
Its not as much as i thought....


As far as I understand, the Associates are neutral and so they should stay. I'm actually not in favor of an Associates town. We're supposed to be a network of people from this forum who work separately but help each other out regardless of our factions.

Maybe we should have a string of clandestine meeting places on diferent planets. Like a cantina on Tatooine operating as an Association meeting point or a shop on Naboo. Maybe with secret something or other when you enter so other members know you're one of us.

Gaalgoth
05-24-2002, 12:12 AM
Yeah Gavor, I can dig that. But I feel that The Associates and The Massassi should get together and make their own town so we have a base of operations. We can then have cantinas and stuff, but a central hq would be good.

gavor
05-24-2002, 01:16 AM
Fair enough. What about the first bit, does that describe the structure or the way the PA will function?

Kwok69
05-24-2002, 08:24 AM
Thanks for putting me straight ppl. I've got a much better picture of how things will proceed now:p Maybe the underground could proceed as a secret society, like free masons - hehe! Secret handshakes and whispers in the cantina n all! You scratch my back n I'll watch yours sort of thing

Gaalgoth
05-25-2002, 03:55 PM
Gavor, we're still pretty loose on the structure of function. I propose that in the beginning MikeC and I take control as he is the head of the Massassi, but as we expand shed our leadership to a group-elected council. Our power will be limited, it's not like we can tell people what to be and what not to be, but just basic stuff like money control and group meetings and stuff. Once we have a city the council will set up the city's rules.

Welcome o' killer of democracy. You think that was sensless arguing? You must be an only child...:mob:

LOL actualy, we covered alot in this topic, including:

1. The start of a new PA called the Associates

2. The importants of smilies

3, The definition of a n00b

4. Synonyms for child and idiot, and their many uses

5. Something about being pantsless (allthough I skipped those post)

6. The trouble with naming individual races

7. Flaming post directed at other flaming post

8. The Associates (again, but with a much better description of its expectations)

9. Lessons against drinking and posting

10. We welcomed many new posters who introduced themselves as well as their opinions against arguing.

11. Something about droids but I dont remember because I was working on topic nine. (incidently I typed all night about something irrelevant but hit my reboot button)

12. Benefits of an Associate town along with a structured leadership

13. (to be announced at a later time because I never really go away)

***

All and all I feel this has been a very vast thread covering many topics. Out of 129 post, only the first one covered the topic...

...which was simply an announcement.

It's message was simple and clear, delivered with no need for further discussion.

But we are the inhabitents of the SWGALAXY forums.

We are conversationalist at heart and meaningless discussion is our past time.

Dont fault us for who we are, reply....

Reply to our post and help feel the void of silence...

be it with flame, knowledge, humor, or debate.

Feed from our words as we feed from yours.

Do not encourage it to stop for it is a wheel set to motion,

and only through its infinite revolutions can we thrive.

05-30-2002, 05:40 PM
I'm sure that at least one of us will, but as for the PA structure it is going to be pretty loose......It's not like a normal PA so much as it is a network of friends. Rules might pop up as the game comes out, but for now it's pretty much no jedis (or at any rate no planning to be a jedi).
