  1. 11/14/19 [Fixed] Case where players were able to move forbidden objects 11/11/19 [Modified] Damage on Executioner's Hack and added a slot for Rancor Tooth to bring it into line with the CU/NGE weapons [Increased] Loot chance for NS Vibro Motors from Nightsisters [Removed] Non-functional experimentation line from RIS segments [Added] New billboard ad [Added] Thanksgiving Event to go live Nov 28, 2019 at noon server time 11/9/19 [Modified] Encumbrance for hitLocations with multiple equipped armor parts (arms and legs) will now use an average of the encumbrances of the relevant armor parts, rather than the sum of all the encumbrances. Players will be able to wear full suits of armor (or however many additional pieces they wish) at the encumbrance cost of four pieces, instead of nine. Mini suits will not be affected, they will work exactly as they do now. 11/7/19 [Modified] FS quest Phase 3 turrets and Sith Shadow Thugs to be more in line with Tarkin damage expectations. 10/26/19 [Added] Decommissioned (roleplay) military armors to the junk shop owners. These armors offer no protection, have no encumberance or faction requirements, and have no sockets. They are solely for appearances.
  2. Let's say you want to make a chat room for yourself and a group of players. You're not in the same guild, and for whatever reason, you don't want to group up. What do you do? Create a chat room, of course! Chat rooms can be private (only joinable by players who have been explicitly invited) or public (anyone may see the channel in the chat listing and join). Chat rooms will persist through logging out, server resets, etc. Players can leave a chat room any time they wish, and creators may delete chat rooms that they have created. To create a chat room: 1) Right mouse click on any one of your chat tabs (spatial, combat, general, etc) and choose Join Chat Channel. 2) In the screen that pops up, click to expand "Tarkin's Revenge" then click on "Chat - public chat for this server..." to highlight that line. Then click the Create Channel button on the left. 3) In the next window that pops up, give the room a name and description. Room names must be all one word, no spaces, no punctuation or special characters. And if the chat room doesn't create, you may have used a word it didn't like in the description. For instance, it doesn't seem to like the word "private." Try again using a different description. I'm pretty sure it's using the Restricted Names List as a filter, so check and see that you're not using any words on that list. You have two checkbox options here, Private Chatroom and Moderated Chatroom. Private Chatroom means a moderator must invite players to join, and they won't be able to see the chat room as an option unless they are invited. Moderated Chatroom means only moderators may post in the room. 4) If all went correctly, you'll see the new room in the list, and you'll have a new chat tab for the room. To invite someone to a private chatroom: You must be a moderator in the chat room to invite other players. There are two ways to invite someone to a room. The first way is via slash command. If you are a moderator, you can type "/chatr invite PLAYERNAME ROOMNAME" which will give that player the ability to see the chat room in the list, and they can then join it. For example: Player names ARE case-sensitive. In the example above, typing the player name as "bindi'i" will not work, it has to be "Bindi'i" with a capital B, because that's how the character was created. Double-check with the person you are trying to invite if it tells you "avatar not found." You should see the following message if the invite was successful: The player who has been invited will see a message like this: The second way to invite someone is through the info menu. See the instructions for "To make someone a moderator in a chatroom" below - you'll use that same window, but click the Invite button, and type the name of the person you want to invite. To join a chatroom: If you want to be invited to a private chatroom, ask someone who is a moderator to invite you. See the step above. If you want to join a public chatroom, or you have already been invited to a private chatroom, right mouse click on any one of your chat tabs (spatial, combat, general, etc) and choose Join Chat Channel. Click to expand "Tarkin's Revenge," and "Chat - public chat for this server...", and you will see a list of available rooms to join. Highlight the room you want to join, and click the Join button on the left. A new chat tab will be created for this channel, and you can click the Done button. If the room is not a moderated room, you may start chatting in there. Only moderators may post into a moderated room. Everyone else is read-only. To make someone a moderator in a chatroom: You must currently be a moderator (or the creator) of a chatroom to make other people moderators. If you want other people to have the ability to invite players to a private chat room (or kick, or ban players), you'll need to give them moderator permissions. Right mouse click on any one of your chat tabs (spatial, combat, general, etc) and choose Join Chat Channel. Highlight the room you want to set permissions for, and click the Info button on the left. This will bring up a window that shows everyone in your chat room. Click on the name of the player that you want to make a moderator, and click Set Moderator. You can revoke moderators, uninvite (cancel someone's invite who hasn't joined yet), ban, unban, and kick players from this window as well.
  3. Friday, November 1st, 7:30 PM Central US time -465 -4670, Coronet Dark Intentions will be opening its doors for a dance party & costume contest. Wear your scary, creative, or just plain silly costume to Coronet's only Industrial nightclub, owned & operated by Icav Ribe. We'll see you there! ((This is a roleplay event - please come in character & respect those who are roleplaying))
  4. 10/24/19 [Added] Species costumes, usable by humans, to transform into an alien species for roleplay 10/20/19 [Added] Galactic Moon Festival Event
  5. It's a spooky time of year, and we've created a spooky haunted dungeon for you all to conquer! Check out this post on our website detailing where you'll find the haunted dungeon, and what kind of rewards you can get for making it to the bottom. Some notes regarding the Halloween costumes (skeleton & undead) - they don't work exactly like the roleplay species costumes. They are meant to be more temporary, and as such, they don't persist past logout, and due to some quirks with some of the species, they have some slight differences.
  6. 10/6/19 [Added] NGE signs to houses. 9/15/19 [Increased] max character length for building signs to 256 characters. [Fixed] Issue with pet dyes not persisting on wild-tamed pets.
  7. The download of the launcher itself is throwing that error, or trying to use the launcher is giving that error? I can tell there's a typo there though. It shouldn't say "patchs/tring", it should say "patch/string" within that link.
  8. 9/7/19 [Fixed] Stability issue. 9/3/19 [Added] Recruiter to Emperor's Retreat. [Added] Custom tips loading screens. 9/2/19 [Added] Custom splash screens when logging in. 9/1/19 [Modified] Temple of Exar K'un permissions [Added] Type attribute to pet control devices. This will list the specific creature type, even if the pet has been custom named. [Modified] Future tamed pets will drop the word (baby) from pet name once they reach adult level. This will not affect pets that have already reached their adult level before this update. 8/30/19 [Added] Pet Grooming Kit, craftable by Bio-Engineers, which may be used by players to re-color their pets. Works on wild-tamed and crafted pets. 8/28/19 [Increased] Number of vendors at Master Merchant to 20, and number of items for sale to 8000. You must drop Master Merchant and re-train at the skill trainer to receive this increase. [Removed] Vulnerabilities from Chitin Armor Leggings that were previously missed. [Fixed] Hues on Giant Peko Peko.
  9. 8/25/19 [Modified] Several creatures to be tamable: Bageraset Bruiser (mountable), Canoid Pack Leader, Dalyrake Matriarch, Dwarf Gronda (mountable), Elder Gronda (mountable), Gronda Juggernaut (mountable), Gronda Patriarch (mountable), Gulginaw (mountable), Majestic Plumed Rasp, Sharnaff, Sharnaff Bull, Swamp Humbaba (mountable), Alpha Veermok, Bolle Bol, Elder Gualama (mountable), Giant Cave Veermok, Giant Peko Peko (mountable), Gualama Patriarch (mountable), Ikopi Stag, Maverick Gualama (mountable), Mountain Ikopi, Narglatch Guardian, Narglatch Hunter, Narglatch Matriarch, Plains Hunter, Rogue Falumpaset (mountable), Rogue Fambaa, Veermok Guard, Veermok Pygmy, Female Mountain Squill, Mountain Squill Guardian, Mountain Squill Hunter, Rogue Bantha (mountable), Bantha Matriarch (mountable), Cannibal Dewback (mountable), Grizzled Dewback (mountable), Swarming Lesser Dewback [Modified] Now mountable: Greater Gulginaw, Devil Gulginaw, Dappled Gualama, Humbaba [Fixed] Some camera angles, animations, strings, and shaders 8/24/19 [Reduced] Texture sizes on billboard textures [Fixed] An issue with Horned Dewback not being speedy enough [Added] Three more wanted posters - Ithorian female, Sullustan female, and Sullustan male [Modified] Billboard shader & should now correctly decrement when removed from a city
  10. 8/22/19 [Added] Lock on waypoint object in vendor offer mail code, as per MrObvious's suggestion [Updated] Credits in ReadMe [Added] New billboard ads [Fixed] Some lua templates [Fixed] An issue with Ion Relic Pistol not displaying properly on vendors [Added] Wanted Posters as craftable, writeable items 8/21/19 [Modified] New player email & character creation welcome message to reflect the new website and the 5 characters allowed 8/20/19 [Fixed] Issue with billboard removal
  11. 8/19/19 [Fixed] Coronet starport has been paved! Mos Entha starport has been smoothed! Thanks to TheTinyPebble! [Added] Billboard city decorations that mayors can install with /installBillboard [Fixed] Horned Dewback description string entry [Fixed] a lair string entry [Ended] Double XP and mutant rasp event 8/18/19 [Added] Optional Synthetic Cloth & Reinforced Fiber Panel slots to all Wookiee clothing that did not have at least one of each. Thank you to scscofield!
  12. There are a limited number of billboard slots available, and we're accepting submissions (subject to approval - they need to be tasteful, for an active business, and graphically attractive on the billboard model). The in-game billboard will rotate images every 10 seconds. You may use the psd file attached as a template. The edges wrap around, so fill to the edge but keep the main image inside the red rectangle for best visibility. Also, large blocks of color work best as fine details are going to be lost as it blows up the image. If you're giving a waypoint, specify the city and/or planet. The ratio length to width in the psd is how it looks displayed, but I will have to smush it to 1024 x 512 to get the game to apply it. It'll stretch back out in game, but of course there'll be some small resolution loss. Examples: billboard.psd
  13. 8/15/19 [Added] Double XP for event weekend [Modified] special attacks on boss rasp [Removed] GCW Mobiles from Coronet and Theed city screenplays pending new system [Fixed] a couple lair string entries [Added] Mutant Rasp Event screenplay 8/11/19 [Added] Writable items 8/3/19 [Added] Phoenix's LuaAttributeListComponent scripts

  18. Azira Mas'ai, age 13. Azira had only the day before completed her challenges and received her jat'o. She hadn't cried out once while they applied the tattoos, even though it had hurt, bad. One boy did, and she wanted to mock him for it, but didn't. She was a grown-up now, and that wasn't a grown-up thing to do. Her father had left shortly after the ceremony; he had cargo to deliver offworld, and her mother had invited a friend to stay with them. She wasn't too keen on spending her first adult day without her family, and with some strange lady, no less, but she figured even as an adult, sometimes you get no choice. The mood in the house was downright strange. She had kind of been expecting some kind of party, or at least have a special dinner in honor of her joining the clan, but her mother had spent all day whispering with her guest, some lady named Mit'a. Azira thought they seemed kind of worried about something, though of course they wouldn't tell her. When there came a knock at the door, both women froze, glancing at each other, then at her. "Azira, go to your room," said her mother, in a tone that brooked no disagreement. Mit'a followed, herding her to the back of the house. Her hand went to a cylindrical object hanging from her belt. Azira could hear her mother, and a male voice in the front room, and then her mother's voice rose in pitch. Mit'a pushed Azira across the room, just as an armored man with a blaster came pushing through the door. The cylinder was in Mit'a's hand, now, and a purple blade of light came rising from its hilt. The man fired off several blaster bolts, which ricocheted off the blade, leaving scorch marks where they hit the walls. Her mother came flying into the room, putting herself between the shooter and Mit'a, and was immediately mown down by blaster bolts. Azira cried out, "Mom!" but stood frozen, her back to the wall. In the same instant, Mit'a looked down at her fallen friend, faltered, and took a blaster bolt square to the chest. She, too, crumpled to the floor. The armored man crossed the room and bent to scoop up the dead woman. Azira grabbed a lamp - the only thing within reach - and flung herself at him, screaming like a lunatic. Her arm was slammed against the wall faster than she could blink, and the *crack* of her bone as it hit made her see stars. She did cry out, then, but in anger, not pain, she told herself. The man dropped her arm, and resumed picking up Mit'a's dead body. "Take me with you!" she blurted. That stopped him. He turned his helmet to face her. "What?" "Take me with you," she repeated, so I can kill you later. Once he was gone, she'd never have another chance. He paused, caught completely off-guard, then finally nodded as he came to a decision. "Follow me." "Let me get--" she turned to go into her room, but the man kept walking towards the door. "Now or never, kid." _________________________________________________________________________ Azira Mas'ai, age 13. Azira followed the armored man to his ship, cradling her right arm. No bones were poking out, but she was sure it was broken, or cracked at least. That would limit her in how she could do it. She didn't think she could manage with her right hand the force required to drive a knife or sword through a body, and she wasn't sure she could best him left-handed. It would be dishonorable to do him in while he slept. He put the body in a coffin in the cargo bay and covered it with the lid. She heard the snap-hiss of his helmet release, and he took it off, setting it atop the coffin lid. He was a young human man, perhaps 30, definitely younger than her parents. He ran a hand through his sweaty black hair, making it stick out in all directions, and she had to repress the urge to laugh insanely. "What's your name?" he asked. "Azira." "Azira, my name's Jeph Celsi." He was unstrapping all his armor and tossing it absentmindedly atop the coffin holding the body of the woman who, not fifteen minutes ago, was alive in Azira's house. He also plopped down the blaster he'd used to slay both women. "Clean those up, and I'll see about getting you a cot. Only got the one cabin, so you'll have to stay here in the cargo bay, but I can get you set up with a corner to yourself." She gaped in disbelief. He strode towards the cargo bay door, and she cried, "I think you broke my arm!" Without pausing, or even looking back, he said, "Medical supplies are in the 'fresher." After binding up her arm with medical tape using a pair of scissors and his toothbrush as a splint (how the kriff was she supposed to know how to fix a broken arm?!), she found a disgusting still-wet washcloth - the only one in there - and used it to clean the armor. The blaster was another matter. It loomed at her, a deadly, evil thing. She'd never even seen one up close, much less knew how to clean it. She picked it up left-handed. It was heavier than she'd expected. She braced it against her body, finger on the trigger. The cockpit wasn't far, it was a small ship, and she came in through the doorway between the two chairs. Jeph half-turned, then glimpsing what she was holding, turned fully to face her. "Put that thing down before you hurt somebody." "That's exactly what I intend to do." She wiggled the muzzle in what she hoped was a menacing fashion. Jeph rolled his eyes. "You ain't gonna shoot me." "Oh yeah? Why's that?" "Firstly," he ticked off a finger, "your people think killing with a blaster is cowardly. It'd be dishonorable for you to shoot me, and unarmed, no less." "You deserve a dishonorable death, you... you..." her voice rose. "The dishonor would be yours, and you know it." It was true, but she didn't think he would know it. "Secondly," he ticked off another finger, "if you killed me, you'd be stuck alone on this ship, and I don't believe for a minute you know how to fly this thing. You'd be hurtling along till you got sucked into some planet's orbit and crashed, or end up drifting once you ran out of fuel, and starve to death. I 'spose you could eat yon woman in the back, then me, and you'd last a mite longer, but in the end, I'd wager you wouldn't say it was worth it." She wavered a bit at that, she hadn't really considered what would happen once she killed him. "And thirdly," he said, grabbing the blaster by the muzzle and whipping it out of her hands, "the safety's on." _________________________________________________________________________ Azira Mas'ai, age 13 "You killed my mother!" Azira cried, and poised herself to kick him in the shin. In a warning tone, he snapped, "Watch it!" He pointed at the second seat. "Sit yourself down, I'm disinclined to hurt you again." She planted her feet more solidly on the floor, scowled and crossed her arms, but immediately regretted it when the pain shot through her right forearm. "I ain't gonna tell you again, kid, sit down!" He slung the weapon over his shoulder. Grudgingly, she tromped to the chair and flopped down, though holding her arm more carefully. Jeph punched some buttons, and the stars outside became streaks of light. This was hyperspace, she thought dimly. "I ain't responsible for killing your mother any more'n the driver would be iffn' she'd ran in front of a moving speeder. Any idiot knows what's like to happen, and ye run in front of a firing blaster. I take it you don't think your mother was an idiot?" He was flipping switches near the ceiling now, not even looking at her while he talked. "She's not!" "I figured as much. Since that's the case, you can believe one of two things. Either she got some damn-fool idea into her head that she could save that Jedi," he sneered the word as if it cost him to say it, "in which case, she knew what she was doing, and she killed her own self, or else that one made her do it, maybe thinking it would buy her some more time to get out of there." Azira frowned, puzzled. "What do you mean, 'made'?" He looked at her, then. "Them as can use the Force, unnatural sorcery. They can do things regular folks can't. They can make a person do a thing they otherwise wouldn't. Get into their head, like, and compel them." She scootched back in the seat. "I still don't get it. You really think that lady made my mom throw herself in front of your blaster, to save herself?" "Don't they teach you kids anything, these days? Look, before you were born, there was this thing called the Jedi Order, you've maybe heard of that?" She nodded. "A little." "Well, they were a bunch of cultist sorcerers, ran things in the galaxy for thousands of years with their mind tricks, or when that didn't work, they'd use their lightsabers to get their way. They went around checking folk's kids for whatever it is makes 'em able to do their kind of magic. Then they'd keep 'em in their compounds, brainwash 'em, teach 'em to fight somethin' powerful...and it'd never be a fair fight, see, as they'd be using their magic." "As there were so many of them, and their powers got stronger when they were together, nobody had a chance of getting outside their influence, should they have a mind to do something. When they tried to overthrow Emperor Palpatine - he was the Supreme Chancellor at that time - he made war on 'em. Lots 'em were taken out in the first wave, and several more not too long after, saving the galaxy from their cult's chokehold. Some of 'em escaped, and they've been hunted, ever since." "How many are still out there?" Azira asked. "No one knows for sure, and it's a good bet some of 'em are probably teaching up new ones, when they find a kid as can use the Force - the source of their magic. It's up to people like me to protect the galaxy by makin' sure they can never rise to power again." Hastily he added, "I ain't no vigilante, I got papers, prove I was hired by the Empire to do for one Mit'a Ariste." He jerked a thumb towards the back. "It's her to blame for your mother. I'm sorry it had to happen that way." In a small voice, barely above a whisper, Azira said, "My father knew." "What's that?" "He knew she - that Jedi - was coming to stay with us. And he left! He left us alone with her, the day she arrived!" The world was spinning, turned crossways on its axis. How could her own father have left her and her mother unprotected, with an enemy like that? "Well, kid, I can't change what's past, but what say you'n me team up, keep this galaxy safe from Jedi and criminals and the like? No more tryin' to shoot me, or stab me, or any other form of killin'." He extended a hand. She hesitated, still unsure. "'Cause if you try to kill me again - and you won't succeed - I'll toss you out on your ear when we touch down on Ord Mantell for refueling. And I reckon there's plenty of folk there as'd think it's their lucky day should they stumble across a pretty little girl all on her lonesome. Now, I don't want to see that happen to you, and I expect you're smart enough to realize it's in your best interest to stay here on this ship where you'll be safe." "What are you going to do with me?" "Do? Ain't gonna do nothing with you - or to you. You're welcome to stay here as long as you like, provided you do chores - cleaning, and the like. Gotta earn your keep. You can have free reign of the ship, except stay out of my cabin, and if I tell ye to leave the cockpit, you go. I ain't much for cookin' so if you wanna eat, you feed yourself. Clear?" She nodded and gingerly took his hand with her broken arm, shaking on the deal. New beginnings.
  19. It's HAAAAAAAAGEEEEENNNNNNNN! We 100% should have sent out news before now! No good excuse, there. But at least, you get to see the fresh, shiny new website, which has only been up for a couple weeks. And your name-stealer is an old friend of Paradym's - trust me, it's been very confusing. Anytime one of us says "Hagen" it's "I miss OLD Hagen..." from the other. Oh man, when Paradym wakes up and sees this post, he's gonna be so excited!
  20. For those who are only forum-dwellers, be sure to check out our new website: https://home.tarkinswg.com/ We'll still use the forums for longer discussions, but articles about new content will be primarily posted to the sidebar on the new site. And remember to check out discord if you want to be involved in the community-wide live text-based chat (a good time killer while you're at work!) https://discordapp.com/invite/DSPFdVh

  23. [This event will go live Friday 7/5/2019 sometime around 6:30 CST] Paradym and Liakhara are getting married! But all of the items they need for their wedding have been misplaced. Talk to the wedding coordinator in Coronet (just outside the starport) to help them get this show on the road. There will be rewards for successful completion, and you can complete the scavenger hunt once per character. In addition, it has been rumored that Liakhara turns husbands into man-shaped husks. It seems unlikely that there is any validity to these claims, but the presence of several oddly man-shaped beings inside the city limits of Coronet, Theed, and Mos Entha does call this into question... These poor creatures will be in-spawn for a week, and will be very nice for the pocketbooks of those who can kill them. (They drop cash only, no loot.) Note: The wedding coordinator droid will give you a photographic image and a verbal hint to get you started as you look for each item. The maps in the post below will be invaluable for finding each location. In addition, it is highly recommended to download the POI maps mod (which will be hosted and available later today). This will override your normal in-game maps with these special POI maps. If you use them for the event, feel free to delete them afterwards if you don't wish to use them for normal play. To install the mod: 1) Download the POI Maps mod LINK. 2) Navigate to the folder where your Tarkin's Revenge installation of SWG is located. 3) Open the texture folder (if you have one) or create one if you don't, and open it. 4) Unzip the POI Maps mod into this texture folder - directly inside, no subfolders. 5) Close all open clients and re-open them, if you had any open. And finally, as a special wedding gift to all of you players - along with this update, you will be granted one more character slot, for a total of FIVE characters on Tarkin's Revenge!
