Apologies for game downtime
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2018-08-05 18:27:09
Apologies for the game down time. Apparently it seems that my site was the victim of a "Phishing attack" which needed me to pay $94 for this and $60 for that plus $34 for this other thing... Low and behold, I fixed the issue on my own and realized that my supposedly "Legitimate" Host that I have had for over a decade uses this a trick to scam people into paying money for security fixes and updates that should not have occurred in the first place and could have only occurred from the host themselves.

With that, I will be finding a new host shortly. You may experience trouble for that. Thank you for your patience.

New update

Just synced up an update with nothing new. Just some refactored code and a bug fix.

Still looking for faction leaders if anyone is interested.

Latest updates and my absence
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2018-04-20 10:46:54
First off, let me apologize for my absence. There isn't a lot of activity on this site from the players and such and makes me lose my motivation. I believe with the SWCombine out there, players may see this game, become interested but then lose interest as it is not as fully developed as the Star Wars Combine. I get that. But the Combine has been in existence for over 20 years with multiple developers. I am only one developer and little motivation as a result of lack of interest.

But I still have the spark! The last few months have been hard. My dad was very sick and 3 weeks ago he passed away. Things have calmed down a bit. I am not ready to dedicate more time to this. Like I said, I added 5600+ Planets to the game. Terrain is coming next.

As far as development of the game engine.. The CMS Engine is at version 0.75. I have been working on refactoring the code behind the engine to be quicker, error free, more secure and easier to read. Once that is complete, I can actually bring on extra developers to help develop aspects of the game if they are interested.

The plan for now is this:
-Get actual traveling working in some form with terrains and space.
-Get more faction tools.
-Transfer credits from and to factions and players.
-Improved initial battle system.
-Some skills
-Some force skills.

So we are not dead. We are always updating and doing something, even if slowly.

New Versioning system being planned
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2017-11-26 19:50:18
As a way of defining and knowing what is updated as far as software goes onto the website, you will have different engines at work with different versions. The over all engine is calls BFS(pronounced Baffs). It's current over all engine version is 0.6031. It will consist of the following sub-engine modules and versions.

Communication Engine - 0.71:
This handles all the chat, Notifications, Private Messaging, Instant Messaging, credits and OOGP transfer and such.

Character Engine - 0.59:
This engine takes care of all the character details such as HP, XP and other stats as well as Bio info and skills as well as other abilities.

Forums Module - 0.891:
The second most complete of all the features. All things forum related, mod/admin and otherwise.

Travel Engine - 0.54:
This engine handles the galaxy and all their locations and stats as well as land, sea, air, space travel and sub-level travel. It also handles travel delays and rewards associated with it.

Privilege Engine - 0.43:
The engine that handles assigning privileges from factions, admin and more.

News Engine - 0.95:
The most complete feature of our site so far. It handles all Blog, sim news, GNN and such entries.

Battle Engine - 0.04:
The engine that will handle space, land, sea, air, weapons and hand to hand combat and simulation.

CMS Engine - 0.7351:
All site content, styling and such that does not fall into the other categories.

Backend Engine - 0.870:
Most other engines will handle creating backends for their features. However, there are some tools that are separate from that and will need to be added into this engine module.

Universe Update
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2017-11-26 18:51:05
We have made some progress on the universe of the game. As of now we have 363 Sectors, 986 Systems and uhm... 5 planets. However, the new planet list will increase shortly. Once we have that I can briefly update my revision 0.54 version of the travel engine. It will be barebones and will allow travel to anywhere in the Universe almost instantly. But you will not receive any XP for it. At least not now. Once we have a delay in place, you will be able to do so.

You also will not be able to enter facilities. But you can travel on terrains and from planet to planet or city to city.

Version 1.0 will be released once time delayed travel is working, you can receive XP and you can travel in land, air and sea vehicles as well as move about rooms within facilities and said vehicles.

Faction Name Changes - Done(Leaders needed)
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2017-11-15 13:33:38
Good afternoon,

We have changed over the factions that required changing so that it can be more in line with the Old Republic Time Frame.

*Black Sun has now been renamed into "Eternal Crime Syndicate"

*The Rebel Alliance is now "The Galactic Republic"

*The Galactic Empire is now "Eternal Empire"

We still need leaders for all factions with the exception of Hapes and Eternal Crime Syndicate.

Let me know if anyone is interested in leading those factions. Thank you!

A reset in time frame and some updates
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2017-11-15 11:09:42
So, we had decided that this game will be a prequel to the Star Wars Combine game found at Link It will take place 1500 years earlier so as to avoid any interference or issues with the current content.

With that comes other changes... Our Galactic Date will change to be 1500 years prior to the current combine time. We will also be changing and dropping factions that do not exist during the Old Republic days. That also includes items and ships and weapons as well as the game story.

Those changes will occur over the next few days.

As for updates that I am currently working on with the admin side of things... 1) I am updating our image database tool for easily applying images to a piece of content. 2) Updating the universe and planet tools to have a more consistent look with the Star Wars Combine grid map. This will exclude terrain. 3) Ship implementation. Once the universe is a bit more established, ships will be available to use.

How do we plan on linking the two games together? For one, we plan on asking for cooperation from players in both games to work on creating back stories that link to the game. Second, we will have a faction that will exist in this game that will eventually be created in the combine that is story-wise supposed to have lasted thousands of years in existence in hiding. So essentially this game will be a back story game to a faction in the combine. But game play is open to anyone. You do not have to have an account in the Combine to play in this game.

The updates will continue to keep on coming.
