>Star Wars Galaxies is a sandbox MMO set in the Star Wars universe shortly after the destruction of the first Death Star above Yavin IV. Star Wars Galaxies officially closed on 15th December 2011. SWGEmu aims to emulate Star Wars Galaxies in it's Pre-CU era, version 14.1.
Had a pretty good thread yesterday.
Any anons still playing?
The thread last night got me to reinstall after 1-2 years away from SWGEmu. Just been going around getting exploration badges for now. I was planning on making a thread in a couple hours, but this works.
Flavors of the month/week come and go all the time, doesn't mean you should restrict yourself from playing something you might enjoy because of some flaky trend-followers.
Is the plan to add JTLS? There was some seriously good stuff in that expansion. The game's space system was insane. (walking around on a star ship that was dynamically moving in space and you can look out the windows still strikes me as insane.)
it's from an older breed of MMOs, the sandbox kind like UO
You won't understand a single thing when you start playing so better check the guides section on their forums
as for fun, well just ask yourself if second life in the star wars universe is fun
It depends on what you want to do. It's a sandbox so there isn't much direction to what you do. You kind of just RP as a low-life in the Star Wars universe.
It's a pre-WoW MMO, and is pretty damn deep, and that coupled with the extreme freedom can lead to it being fairly daunting.
That's what you got, isn't it? Isn't this what you wanted?
use the pirated version all you want, just dont go to their forums asking where to get it or bragging about it (everyone else did the same thing) its all a masquerade to keep the legal boogeyman away
Leave it up to Bioware to take a genre who's only pro is the fact that a lot of people play it at the same time on the same server and turn it into a story-based experience.
But their story's are so compelling and well written.
Shit, I didn't think there were still torrents out there. I didn't look, but I presumed that no one bothered to make one since the game has been dead for years. Shows what I know.
They can emulate the game, but they can't emulate my old friends.
Your general PvE combat experience is going to be pretty much the same regardless of your class. If you are melee, you spin2win. If you are ranged, you AoE and kite to win. Combat medics add poison/healing into the mix. Squad leader is largely not useful for soloing purposes, and provides a few fairly insignificant buffs to your party.
>Can I play the game alone without internet connection
Theres literally no point to that. The best parts of the game were shit like finding player malls, haggling over prices, griefing people in cloning facilities.
>swg was fun because its a sandbox
Alright well what can I do?
>anything you want!
Alright but really what can I do?
>...stand around in a cantina waiting for them to add shit to the game.
I can ignore all the dungeons/rsids/battlegrounds in wow and stand around ashenvale or something, doesn't make it a sandbox. It makes it a shit game.
I got a full templated character or two sitting on the emu, its even worse than when the game was live because at least then you couldn't make an alt without buying the game twice.
That's what the official site says well, but we know this is not the truth... . So, no way to just run around alone doing nothing just to see what this game looks like for the sole purpose of testing ?
>Space shit isn't added yet
That's a breaker right there, but I'll ask this: Are JEDI's in, in any way? In SWG that was the most mind blowing shit. That if you ever saw a Jedi, you knew you were in the same room with a dope player. And at any time bounty hunters could come in to kick his ass.
Are they in yet, please tell me they are in.
Someone would have to buy and place a guild hall, which isn't cheap by newbie standards. I'm going to run some missions to get some dosh back soon. I can probably do it if nobody else bothers in the next day or so.
But then what will you use it on?
>buy muh sandbox
Bitches, it's time to get real. The game wasn't a sandbox, it was horribly unfinished. They didn't even have mounts when the game came out. Now every one knows how to do everything the mystery is gone. Getting Jedi is so easy they won't even turn it on on the emu or else it would be all Jedis
I logged in yesterday. Made my entertainer. Again, just like at launch, I'm probably one of the few people that actually sit there and play it instead of macro'ing. Funny people waited all this time to play a great MMO again and they just end up not-playing it.
>What will I use it own
Nigga I'll join the military and sick that bad boy on the Rebels
and once I get enough faction points I'll start raiding shit with my pets.
Also I will get into teaching languages so people don't get cursed out in that shitty bothan language
I fired uo SWGEMU fairly recently. I didn't really stick with it too much. I only ever played SWG in the beta and liked it quite a bit back then. I should really persevere with it some more, I really quite like the crafting system in it too.
I went back to DAoC again though. I always tend to end up back there again, grinding in some dungeon or screwing around in battlegrounds.
