i think it would be interesting to see vehicles under item decay or allowing other players to damage them (like speeders and bikes)

They probably will, much more realistic if you're not rich to have an old run-down speeder, than a perfectly running, in perfect condition albeit old speeder.

yes I agree kaiser, it would be very cool to see the ware and tare (or however you spell that) and have it affect not only appearance but the way it runs.

What about if you align yourself with the Empire, would you be able to use walkers or would that have to wait until the expansion? I hope it doesn't because I want one noooowww!:mad:

That would be cool. Little scratches and dents.

It won't be a little dent if you're driving skills aren't very developed ;)

It'd be neat if you had "operating" levels sorta, like if you drive speeders a lot you'll be able to have better control and get different upgrades for it.

Are there vehicals in SWG. Imean, by this thread there obviously is but is that confirmed?? and when the space expansion comes out, will u be able to fly space vehicals?? they'd have to make a pilot profession.

Vehicles(at first just the land speeder and speeder bike, but more added with time) will not be avaliable at launch but they will be included through a patch within a few months of the games release. I remember a developer saying Vehicles would have made release but they just didn't have the time or something.

So look for them pretty soon after release, maybe even a simple month. You will begin to see them on the Test Servers first though, and then released into the main servers.

I just hope they make the speed of the vehicles something worthwhile. I once heard the vehicles moved about as fast as a person could run, and that is just retarded.

there's a thread i started on this page, just a little bit down, all about vehicle damage. It's pre NDA, but it pretty much covers all there is in this one. I don't remember how much "official" information there is in it, but if you're interested check it out.

I think it was mostly theories and ideas, but it was a good thread.

True, and even if the vehicals werent that fast, it's better then nothing. I'm guessing ur character won't be able to run continous, so something a bit faster then a running pace would still let u cover lots of ground and lets u see and explore a little of where u're going

I'm not saying it will be the end of the world, I'm just saying it would be retarded.

The point of buying an expensive vehicle is two fold.

1.) To look good while roaming around in a Speeder Bike or Land Speeder.

2.) To get around much quicker then you could on foot.

If they take out that second equation, I don't see much reason why. Why would they make vehicles about 50x slower then they are in the movies?

I just do not see the reason behind making vehicles nothing more then showoff material.

Yes, you will be able to check out at-st walkers in game if your points are high enough.....But I read this morn that they made it more difficult to get one though.:atat:

Well obviously, or else everyone would have one. ^_^ I wonder how you'd get those big things from planet to planet? I hope it doesn't involve parcel force.

I'm just looking forward to the space expansion. :-) Being able to take my little trade caravan on the road in my own little YT-1300 would be fun.

ya the space expansion will be cool. Will they be adding a a pilot profession??

07-02-2003, 12:50 AM
I heard there was a piloting profession. Makes sense I guess, but I don't know what it would cover, for example if you need another person to navigate etc, or you could just get a droid to do it.

and a ship engineer.

07-06-2003, 04:08 PM
And ship designer. It opens a whole new area of professions. I presume there's a limit to wat u can get. It would be sweet tho to become the captain of a star destroyer or something.

Ya the space expansion will make this game so much mroe than it already is. DO you guys know if there will be like 4 expansions like EQ. And it would kick ass to own and drive your own walker.
