|I apologize for my absence. In the past months my family has had three deaths and a temporary job layoff for me. Things are slowly getting back to normal. I will be updating the game again in the coming weeks. I thank the admin team for their efforts and they will be hearing from me over the weekend.|
|Talibar still Absent
By: Alexis Vikram , on: 2013-10-11 17:30:10
|Even though the creator, and founder of this game is still on a undetermined leave of absence, I still highly encourage everyone to continue posting in the faction-based RP's occurring. The reason being, if we can have all of the factions developed for when Talibar does return, it will be made easier on him in implementation of new features. I still want to see this game succeed, it has a potential to be extremely unique and engaging in ways other Rp forums have not been able to accomplish. |
Also, keep posting ideas. I still run the Dark Force user, and Planetary management side of things. Even though I do not have the tools to implement anything myself, I am looking for idea's that can help create an atmosphere that everybody enjoys. I am keeping record of all ideas and will make sure to inform Talibar of your contributions in his absence, something he will likely reward you generously with.
|Origin Faction RP's are Live!
By: Alexis Vikram , on: 2013-09-04 13:13:41
|The Beginning Faction RP's are up and live! If you intend to join one of the four starting factions (Hapes, Empire, Rebel Alliance, or Blacksun) start posting in the appropriate thread. This is a great way to introduce your character in the realm of galactic politics. Rp'ing in one of these four threads is highly encouraged if you intend to acquire a leadership role. |
With Talibar gone exp will not be distributed, as he is the only one who has access to the experience distribution tool. Upon his return he will likely distribute experience accordingly.
For now get to Roleplaying, again this is a great way to introduce your character, and any ambitions your character has.
Let us thank Srota for taking the initiative and setting these up.

|I have begun work on implementing all of the approved ships. So far I have managed to record all of the Capital class, and Freighter class Ships. However due to technical difficulties I was not able to record any of the Fighter class ships. |
Of the ships that are implemented, I have been able to record most of the statistics for those. Some stats are still needing to be balanced and or implemented. Images will also need to be uploaded.
Pending Talibar's approval of these ships, the progress for the starter ships is going extremely well. Hopefully we will see the implementation and spawning of these ships within the next week or so.
While you guys are waiting, the team highly encourages you to continue suggesting ships. Remember, any ships that you suggest that become approved will be yours as soon as the ships are spawned.
|Items and Weapons are almost here
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2013-08-23 09:05:38
|I am sorry for the delay. With a 21 month old baby at home and a full time job, it takes a little time to get things done.|
So, items and weapons (The initial ones) are implemented in the database and so are the images I have. The snag I am having at the moment is spawning the items. It keeps spawning them rather than putting it into your inventory :/ .
Its a simple fix, but I gotta clean up the universe a little bit as there are free flowing weapons every where and I need to assign everyone their stuff. Bear with me. Once my baby goes to sleep, it should take no more than an hour to finish up everything. Thank you for the patience!
|Good News, everybody!

|We now have a facebook group for the game, it is a bit simple at the moment, but I should have it updated soon enough. Just search for star Wars: Battle for Supremacy on there and it should be the first thing to come up. I will post copies of news posts there, and as soon as I get a twitter account up and running, it will go there as well, look for exciting news to come!|
|Little Snag on the items
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2013-08-20 17:53:46
|OK, this is taking longer than expected for items and weapons. I am hoping by Thursday you will have an inventory system to see your weapons and items. By next week you should be able to equip them. These are worst case scenario's. In most cases, the whole thing will be done way before that. |
|Last chance for sabers
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2013-08-18 09:07:39
|Guys I will extend your saber choices until today. If you haven't made a choice, here is your chance.|
|New Staff Member

|I approached Talibar in regards to taking a more active role within the community and I was appointed to the following roles|
I just wanted to introduce myself to the current Beta players:
Director of the Darkside Force Users
Join Request Manager
I am here to help minimize the workload for Talibar when the game comes out of beta. I am more then willing to listen to any suggestions, or ideas in regards to the listed categories. For now, my role is very minimal as not all of the tools or features are implemented.
As of now,
I will not be able to manage and or edit planet layouts due to the feature still being in the development phase.
I will not be able to answer too many questions in regards to how the force is going to work. As far as I know that feature will be worked on more extensively.
I can however,
Take any suggestions or ideas in regards to the force, and planetary management, so I can pass these on to Talibar.
I plan to start compiling a document of any suggestions the the community may have. This is so I can just pass these ideas en-mass to Talibar instead of him having to sort through them one by one.
I encourage others to also take an active role within the community. I know Talibar is working hard to get this game off the ground.
|Attention Force Users!
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2013-08-11 20:57:11
|(PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THESE THINGS UNTIL SATURDAY. THESE ITEMS AT THE MOMENT ARE STRICTLY FOR RP AND NOTHING MORE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE GAME)|
If you are Force Sensitive: You are receiving a lightsaber. Its to note that every player will begin with a few items to begin the game. None are tradeable or loseable at the moment. For RP Purposes, you will be using them for your character.
Everyone will receive the following:
Non Force Users will receive:
These items above are non-negotiable and yes, more items will be placed in the game... Eventually. This is to start off. So please, do not ask me to give you an item that is not listed. If you are a force user, please do not ask me why you did not receive the knives and long sword.
As for everything above and everything below... Do not ask me when they will be useable or what they are there for. This at the moment is something basic that I feel all characters should have in the game and should start with. Further, while combat evolves, these items will THEN be useable. For now, they are not. So please do not ask for an ETA. Simpy use these weapons/items in your RP. I know many have used other items in their RP and that is fine. You may/may not receive those items. Thats just a fair disclaimer for the moment. While you wait on the release of items, you may use whatever items you wish in your RP's that are not in the game yet until further notice.
For the force users, you will have until Friday to let me know which lightsaber you would like. No, if the lightsaber is not on the list, you will not get it. No I will not customize your lightsaber image. These are things to come in the future and please do not ask how soon in the future. Furthermore, please do not post publicly what you would like. Rather, send me a PM of your choice. So for the force users:
Which hilt(These are the only styles for the moment. Do not ask for others):
Double bladed Hilt (specify if you would like to be able to detach the sabers into two or not)
Short Hilt (You can request 2 OF ONLY THIS HILT)
Medium Hilt (No, do not ask, you can only have one)
Lightwhip (AKA: Lightsaber Whip - You will only get one)
What color Lightsaber Crystal:
Those are your only choices. No, I will not give you BLACK, NO WHITE, NO MAGENTA, NO other color. If its not listed, I will not provide it for you. If you have a double bladed hilt(Detachable or not) or dual hilts, you can specify different colors for each blade.
You also get one last item... Since all the regular players get Jackets and you do not, you will also receive a Force Robe. No, I will not customize color or size, etc.. Its the same for everyone. When (And please do not ask me when) I have custom images working, you can customize the robes and even the lightsabers.
I know some of the comments seem a little... off putting. I just do not want a million questions from 100 different users all asking the same thing. So, I would rather it be done this way. But anyway, real fun stuff.
