Tarkin Creatures - Master List

Recommended Posts

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, Tatwi has designed for us the Tarkin Creatures Database!

And for a sneak peak at what has been added...

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.

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 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

One thing I noticed while I was out and about in the game, the "Mission Available" criteria is a bit misleading. I assumed that it meant I could go to a terminal and take missions for that exact creature type, but it turns out that's not the case. What it really means is that the creature has a chance to spawn from a mission generated lair, either as the "boss mob" or as an alternate version of the creature. 

So if you're out there looking for a mission for particular creature and you're not seeing it's name show up on the terminal, try taking missions for creatures from the same family in the same level range.

If you're desperate to know for certain the exact missions you can take to find the creature, the data can be found in the lair templates, which are fairly self explanatory and easy to read.
