Star Wars Galaxies Update Posted 10/6/2001 by Wongtam
It really came down to continuity, rather than game mechanics (we had answers for all of that stuff, often based on details you don’t know about), and we talked about it at great length.
§ A declared PA cannot have members that are not similarly declared.
§ A PA with undeclared members cannot accept declared members.
§ If member status changes, they get automatically kicked from the PA.
That’s it, pretty straightforward, at least as far as it looks to you. (It’s somewhat more complicated on our side!).
We did decide not to put in any restrictions like that on grouping, because the PvP system and faction system seem to handle that sort of case already in a more organic way.
So there ya go!
Rebels with Rebels, Imperials with Imperials, Criminals with Criminals. Just the way I think it should be! ;P
Next, the Wookie Debate.
It began on the fact that the Devs announced in a public held held not long ago, that Wookies and every species would use an universal translator for others to be able to talk. As we know, Wookies understand basic, but do not talk it. There was a great debate here also on the continuity of that. If it fit the Star Wars Universe, or that continuity should have been bend to make the game work (better).
The devs listened to the people on the forums and revised their plans, here is what they decided: click here (there's too much)
Star Wars Starfighter for PC Announced Posted 10/5/2001 by Baal
LucasArts Entertainment will release the flight action game Star Wars Starfighter for PC in the U.S. and Canada in January 2002. Originally available for PS2, the title engages players in a series of dramatic missions to save Naboo from the Trade Federation.
Star Wars Starfighter takes players on a journey that begins on Naboo and continues through the climactic assault on a Droid Control Ship. The single-player game offers the same features and scope as the original PS2 title. It takes full advantage of the graphic capabilities of the PC and features more than 20 3D starships in 14 environments set in air and space. Star Wars Starfighter for PC will require a 3D accelerator card.
A special edition version of Star Wars Starfighter also will be available for Xbox in the U.S. in November. Star Wars Starfighter is being adapted for PC and Xbox by San Francisco-based Secret Level. The PC version will release in other territories outside the U.S. and Canada in late 2001.
