Lightbulb Side Games - Sabbac

Do you think they'll have other side games like sabbac or that chess-type game that chewie and R2D2 were playing? I mean, that would really pass time if they offered that on transports or each person could have a sabbac deck and you'd see a table of sabbac going on at a table in a cantina and then all of a sudden a blaster goes through the throat of one of the guys 'cause he was cheating.... something like that!

Anyways, I feel they should impliment it into the game, what do you think?

There was talk a good while ago, to make it so you could play mini games, in example Sabacc and HoloChess of different kinds, while you where traveling to different planets, since obviously this takes time.

Unfortunatly, this has been cut from the initial release.
All we get to see now is a loading screen ones the transport takes off, or when you enter it (not 100% sure there) for the duration of the travel time, which can be anything from 3-9 minutes apperantly depending on how far you are going to travel.
Until the Space Expansion anyway.

I don't think there should be a loading screen. I think you should just be able to go around in the transport- kind of like in EQ you could go to different rooms of the ship. That way you could strike up a conversation with another player or learn a language (depending on how they impliment it). I wouldn't mind waiting 9 minutes if I was talking with someone.

That was also discussed a good while ago, but because of constraint to get the game out, it was dropped ... for now.

Now seriously, what is SW without Sabbac? Grrr! I saw some pics of some AT-STs on SWGalaxies.net though, that will fill the void.

Why should they expect us to just sit around for 3-9 minutes every time we travel??? Sure it makes sense time wise... But I don't want to sit around waiting 3-9 minutes if I were a smuggler or something along those lines.
*Maybe for 2 minutes the FIRST time I traveled becasue I could enjoy the loading screen, or for 2 minutes each time if it were a new loading screen each time... as long as they were appeasing to the eyes*

How hard is it to have people enter a "building" (i.e. Transport)
and interact with those others who came along into that "building" and have a timer to do whatever you could inside the "building" in that time untill you arrived. Timer runs out, you're booted from the "building."

What I am saying is why can't they make the transport a building that moves you with shiny star filled windows inside and let you walk around in that building just like any other normal building, interacting with people and sleeping etc. etc. just get kicked out of it when you arrive. You get what I am saying?


I can't imagine why you wouldn't welcome any change, because soon a day will come when we are one and the same. As life slips away... Lets keep believing. So step away and believe we're wasting away.

For the RP.

Granted, travelling thru hyperspace is an extremly quick way to move from A to M, but even that takes a certain amount of time.

The reason why they haven't done it so you can walk around inside the transport while you travel to another planet, or play a minigame with or without others, is simply not enough time to do it, complicated to implement it, or a combination of the 2.

I'm expecting it to change once the Space Expansion comes out though.

As a very important side note here: I looked thru the FAQ again in search of answers, and I couldn't come over the one that told you about the time it would take you to go from one planet to another, and that it varies from where you start and where you are going.
Instead it has been replaced by this one:
(the text in italic is new)
Quote:
2.08 How will I manage space travel between planets before the Space Expansion is released?

Players will have access to public transports that will shuttle them between planets and between cities on planets. After players purchase a ticket, they will have to wait for their shuttle to arrive. For the initial release of the game, transportation will happen via a cut scene. After we release the Space expansion, players will be able to experience space travel first hand.
So forget about what I said earlier of it taking anything from 3-9 minutes. It appears that won't happen until the Space Expansion, if ever.
We'll see.

What good is a smuggler who can't bet his four story secret villa on a sabaac game? Seriously, what is more fun for a smuggler than having a glass of Corellian Ale over a game of Sabaac? Or how about just something to do with your friends while waiting for a contact to show up? It'd be nice to see some games implemented sooner or later

One of the things I am truely looking forward to, is to just chill in a cantina, hopefully Swediots, with my friends, and have a Corellian Ale or 2, or anything else that he can mix together.

And maybe even get wasted with them once in awhile.

I'm sure there will be mini games such as Sabacc or HoloChess or any other mini games eventually.

I see sabbac a lot like the card game in FFVIII and FFIX. It'll be fun to play some sabbac, and holochess. I just thought of the funniest thing. When a wookie plays holochess they should have a slight advantage- "because droids don't pull their arms out of their sockets when they lose."

Well, if anyone wants to try it, you can always go here.

It's based on the rules, and it's not that hard to learn.

Wow, that is awesome. I've been playing for the past half hour. I'm going to wait till I get good to use my own money! Lol- we (The =A=) should start our own. That way we could keep track of credits and such, kind of like the Bounty Hunter Guild is doing. That'd be really cool.

When you say "own money", do you mean real cash, or Galactic Standard Credits?

Yes Jan, thank you for the link. My buddy and I have been looking for something like that forever.

My current high score: 505,694
It tells me I'm ranked 7th, but the list goes way higher than my score. It took me four hours too.

Exclamation Help!!

Hey, I can't get that link to work --> http://goliat.gorzow.mm.pl/~look/Sabbac.htm
Little help from those that speak that language....swediot=)?
I remember a while back downloading something like that and I was just wondering if anyone had a file a lot like that. Somtimes, I just don't want to bother with the online version.

So Swediot won't be able to help you there, mate.

After I posted it and I looked at the spelling and all, I was like, "that looks more russian than some scandanavian language!"

So, you guys don't know where I could find this file elsewhere? I've already looked at http://www.downloads.com

What I am wondering is why they have WinAMP on that site... It seems rather randomly thrown in there compared to what else is on there.

Maybe I missed something without being able to read it. Also, I was asking more along the lines Does anyone know where I can find a download link that actually works for this? I know the sabbac online is great, but I'm just saying what if I don't have access to the net and I suddenly get an urge to play some sabbac. Know what I mean?

Well, technically, if you are resourceful enough, you can copy all of the various pages to your PC and redirect the links to your C:// drive. This would be a lot of work, but is feesible. I do mean a lot of work. Oh, and illegal.

Umm...thanks but I do have a life I'm sure some programmer some day will do it. Also, you know how they have the Star Wars CCG, and they do have the sabbac in the cloud city expansion, I think it'd be cool to also have a separate sabbac deck. Like a one shot deal- bam, you have all 74 cards and all you need to do is teach people to play. A lot like when we buy a deck of cards. I think that'd be cool. But then you could lose your car or something else, like your first born

How would they cover the random shifting though? Technically the cards a electronic displays that are sent signals from the table to shift. Hence, a Sabbac cheater chip can be made from the transmitter in the helmet of STs.

Yes, I have far too much time on my hands.

I guess technically you could create an added rule that if the phase die rolls in favor of the shift, then you roll it again, 1 or 2 is still no change, 3 or 4 is one random card and 5 or six would be two random cards. Something like that I guess. Sounds like a lot of added rolling though.

I'd probably be addicted if I could play . I might as well stand by the side of the table, watch the game, but keep throwing my money in the pot . I'll try again later.

Yes, I must admit I rarely got more than two games into that Sabbacc before I spent all my money. Remember that, gambling is BAD.

EDIT: oh, and I never realized until now that my name's glow, my avatar, and my image signature matches. I'm good! (eeeeh.... as opposed to gambling, that is! There! I'm not rambling completely! Promise!)
