    Coming in the update later today will be a MASSIVE revamp to creatures. * Some new creatures have been added * Several creatures have had the resources they drop changed to a different type * MANY creatures have had the amounts they drop changed/increased * Many new lair types have been added to the mission terminals The purpose of all this is to make it so that every creature resource is actually available on every planet, and you can take missions to get it. It is also a boost to creature availability for Creature Handlers or Bio Engineers who may be looking for a specific creature. Because of these changes, resources like Galaxy Harvester will no longer be accurate in telling you what drops what, in what quantities. To this end, we are making available this spreadsheet, which will give you all the data. (Personally, I recommend exporting it and using it locally on your PC with Excel or some spreadsheet program, because Google Docs are slow and terrible.) We're still researching a better way to make this information available in a less "spreadsheet in your face" kind of way. Without further ado, here is the link to the document: Tarkin Creatures And for a sneak peak at what has been added...

    That was actually a design choice. It occurred to me that people might be out in groups, and if anyone in the group has scout, the corpse won't despawn until it's been harvested or a timer runs out, and I didn't want unharvested corpses lying around possibly affecting respawns.

    Word of terrifying, monstrous freaks of nature has spread across the galaxy. They're out there... They are saying these vile creatures are rare, but when found, are terrorizing the countryside, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Many an adventurer has gone after one of these beasts, and few have returned. But those who have, tell tales of incredible loot - rare and precious objects - available for the taking for the lucky hunters who kill one. Be warned - these monsters take no prisoners, and the faint of heart should steer clear. May the best of luck be to those who seek them out. The Tarkin World Boss system spawns three random boss mobiles at random locations throughout the galaxy, typically anywhere between 300-3500m of a city with a starport or shuttleport. When one is killed, a new random boss will spawn three days later, in a new random location. If 24 hours go by and a boss has not been killed, it will de-spawn and a new random one will spawn somewhere else. Each boss has different resists and specials, as well as different loot groups. Drop rate is 100% - you or your group is guaranteed one thing from the "really good" groups, two things from the "good" groups, and four decorative or otherwise useful items. They are meant to be rare, a challenge to find, a challenge to kill, but rewarding when you do.

    I have completed the advanced search functionality, so all that is left to do is take 50 bajillion screenshots of the creatures! I'm not sure when it will go live, but it's functionally complete at this point. Repo is here.

    I've been working on a web page make it easier to use the data. Here are some screenshots. I still have a fair amount of it data wrangling to do, but this what it will look like for the most part (aside from the Advanced Search option that I haven't started yet). When it's finished, it will be hosted here on tarkinswg.com.

    The long-awaited update is coming today! You can finally purchase Imperial Housing Authority-owned property for your very own! This includes such things as Cantinas, Hospitals, Hotels, Houses, Factories, Merchant Tents, Salon Tents, AND MORE. How it works: All GM-owned buildings will need two things to complete the purchase: a credit payment, and a player-crafted deed. These vary by what building you are trying to purchase. If a building is GM-owned and available to purchase (often denoted by ***For Sale*** on the building sign), go inside, use the radial menu, and choose "Buy Structure." For a factory, you'll just need to stand nearby, target it, and use the radial menu on the structure itself. At this point, a menu will pop up, telling you the price, the deed(s) that can be used to purchase it, and the first compatible deed it found in your inventory. If you have a compatible deed, and enough credits to make the purchase, click "OK." You will get a confirmation message asking if you REALLY want to proceed, If you do, go right ahead! This building is now yours! Prices range from 10k for a small house to 2 million for a cantina, and everywhere in between. 4/28/19: I will be dropping some more buildings for purchase today in the three major cities. Additionally, please wait for the "go ahead" after we bring the server back up post-patch. I need to destroy/recreate buildings in all three cities due to a naming issue that needed a client patch, and this may take a little time. I'd rather not lock you all out of the server during that time, so just please hold off on purchasing until I complete this, and thank you for your patience.

    Notes: You do not get the deed back should you choose to destroy the structure. This is due to how the buildings are placed in the world by an admin (no deed is associated with them). There isn't an automated option to sell the structure back to the Imperial Housing Authority; Once you buy a structure, it's yours to use in that location. You can transfer the ownership to another character using the /transferStructure command as you can with any other structure. The system is really all about "location, location, location" and allowing players to buy the special buildings without requiring the player to wait for a Game Master to help them. There should still be plenty of space in the cities to use deeds the same way as always, though parts of towns that are on strange angles will most likely be populated with IHA buildings, because admins are able to line them up at the correct angles.

    Quick update: I just finished the input/output structure and of the advanced search. The next step is to program the "build-a-query" for it and then it's onto the final step of taking screenshots of all the critters!

    I was going to say the same thing. Even though my combat skills are still VERY weak I had no problem killing a bunch with just a friend or two to help. Absolutely LOVED all the loot! One thing I thought was missing was the ability to harvest hide/meat/bones from the bunnies. It would have been nice to be able to get a nice stack of hides and bones for our tailors while we were out collecting loot. I had a BLAST and thank you again for runnign this! I can't wait to see what you guys come up with for next time!

    I loved that there were single player mobs out there dropping good loot. Since we are a new server it is hard to get groups going all the time. I enjoyed having the Matriarchs available to down as groups as well.

    Hello and welcome! The Expanded Universe Book Club is all about sharing our experiences, feelings, and ideas in regards to the enormous amount of books, comics, and short stories that are part of the traditional Star Wars "Expanded Universe". We're all friends here, so if you want to share some of your own "fan fiction" or create some new stuff with other members of the community, by all means go for it, that's what the club is for! Have a favorite character or story line you just can't get enough of? Tell us all about it! Maybe you have a fond memory or two that you'd like to share? We're all ears! If you're looking for more information about what books are available, probably the best place to look on the Internet would be http://www.starwarstimeline.net/ , created by Joe Bongiorno, because it has virtually every bit of information one could want about nearly every Star Wars publication. Otherwise, check out your local library, used book stores, and comic book shops, as you're bound to find some Star Wars books there and possibly other people to enjoy them with too. Over time I will compile a list of books, stories, and comics that relate to the timeline in which Tarkin's Revenge takes place. I will post the list here so that everyone who's interested can easily know what to look for. By all means, let me know you're favorites! Along those lines, we hope to bring some of the Expanded Universe characters and story lines into the Tarkin's Revenge game play experience and this is the place where we can all discuss what would be fun to have in the game. May the Force be with you!
