View Full Version : Space expansion info right from the source.

I answered my own question about the professions with this little tid bit from Station.com

The much-anticipated first add-on for the Star Wars Galaxies series will introduce personal starships and starfighters, which can be used for interplanetary travel or space combat. The expansion also promises additional worlds, playable species, non-player characters, new creatures, and more!

“The staggered release schedule of the space component of the Star Wars Galaxies series will benefit players because they will have time to establish their characters and explore different elements of the core game before we add the space layer,” says Rich Vogel, director of development at Sony Online Entertainment’s Austin studio. “Once the space component becomes available, players who have been with us since the beginning will be ready to buy their own starships and launch into this new arena.”

Dude, I don't want to come off like I'm flaming you, however, there's no need to make another thread concerning this. You should have just put it with your original space expansion question. Alas, thanks for info :)

HAHa sorry caveman, I totally forgot about the other one or I would have put it there. They say there going to add species, but who is going to change their char that late? unless its ya know ewoks then I have to.

No problem. I highly doubt they'd add Jawa's or Ewoks. Why? Because simply put, they are only indiginous to their respective planets. If they made them available then there would not be any continuity. I think they'll add Chiss at some point. But don't be too surprised if you see Sullustians with the space expansion.

Going back to the space expansion, it would be completely awesome if the master =A= ship engineers got together and created one big Mon Cal Cruiser for the PA! The whole PA gets together for one big cruise... I wonder if you can make huge ships like Mon Cals and Star Destryers...

04-24-2003, 04:59 PM
I've heard that some PAs will be able to get big ships. Not SD size, but bigger than the norm.

04-24-2003, 07:13 PM
Yeah speaking of =A= I sent a thingy but never got anything back. That would really cool to have a huge ship. Maybe even a docking bay with a fighter in it!

Oooo yeah, big PA wars in space! With big eneough PAs, a Super Star Destroyer with several Star Destroyers on one side, and a Mon Cal cruiser and two or three frigates on the other side. Both sides start closing in on eachother, then the head of the PA gives an order and all the fighter pilots come swarming out of the fighter bays and collide while the capital ships take and deal heavy fire... PA wars in space... Ah yeah...

Hey, come now... Why does this one shake so much? Are you fearful of the one they call, "Sunshine?";)

In the words of Obi-wan "possibly" But not likely, The PA definetly needs to have a PK day. We can have different competitions. Ground play, Blaster vs Blaster, Blaster vs Melee, Melee vs Melee and Starship vs Starship Grand prize winner gets credits or nice armour.

They should make races like in episode I. That would be a server wide event every year. So that way you could hold bets for all the people who dont have a racer and then for the people who do have a racer could just compete in heats till a winner is declared.

But its the wrong time frame, its between ANH and ROTJ if I'm not mistaken, adding stuff from the first 2 would be nice but totally off key.

04-27-2003, 01:42 AM
Yeah but if they had that stuff in the first two then they definetly have it during the last three movies. They just didnt show it, I mean it just didnt fall flat off the side of the earth.

04-27-2003, 01:49 AM
1st. Earth didn't exist
2nd. Its completely possible for stuff to fall like that, there was one person in total control and if they didn't like it i'm sure they trashed it. That would be the only way to describe it anyway b/c of the time difference in the movies.

Sliding back to the thread subject here, if there is a profession for crafting ships, let's just say for a second that ship engineer is the base profession. That profession could branch off into specialy professions such as starfighter engineer or capital ship engineer, and even branch off into more elite professions such as x-wing engineer, or unique ship engineer for starfighter engineer. This would give people the opportunity to make very customizable ships, with better features that you can control such as shields, acceleration, weapons, etc.
