Announcements / Shoutbox is disabled
« on: December 17, 2016, 06:51:37 PM »
We have decided to disable the Shoutbox, as we have no plugin to relay Shoutbox messages to Discord (where 90% of the playerbase resides) It was felt messages would get often overlooked. How ever if a forum post is made, that gets broadcast over the Discord and the response rate is much higher. We hope this improves the level of communication with new players by utilizing our Discord plugin.

Thanks!

Sorry for the delay in these patch notes, iv had a lot going on.

Mandalorian Hardening Agent is required for crafting misc Weapons bought from the Clans Rep Vendors.
Fixed a bug with Black Sun Alum Minerals daily quest.

More to come on this soon.

Crafting
Mild Quality Armor Segments returned to Voritor loot tables.

In Testing / Potential Restuss Reward Discussion: Resource Deed
« on: November 28, 2016, 09:44:34 PM »
Id like to spark a discussion about a possible Reward from Restuss.

You earn Restuss Commendations similar to NGE version, viva repeatable quest.

Resource Deeds would be around 100 ~ 200 Commendations.
Resource Deeds would reward a Random Number of Resources, between 100 ~ 1000.

We don't want people hording deeds and running Factories with this stuff, The Resources should be reserved for special crafts.

None of this is set and stone, just a concept.

Opinions welcome.

Planets
Naboo has been gone over, Now featuring 5 new hidden POIs/Badges, revamped Planetary spawns and tweeked original POIs.

The Narglatch and Mauler POIs have updated loot in the lootboxes, Bone armor and Chitin armor is one of the available loots that would be useful for new players. Both places are doable by your basic Marksman and Brawler professions.

Loot
Hardbox from Tusken has been fixed
Heavy Lightning Cannon tapes (unused) have been removed from the loot tables

Cybernetics
Cybernetic legs now craft with +35 Terrain Negotiation built into them

Melee Professions
Berserk1 has been moved to Brawler Master, Berserk2 moved into Swordsman

Berserk has been modified, now abilities can be used in Combat with Berserk up and the damage system runs off a new skill tape.
All old Berserk tapes will be obsolete and new tapes will be introduced to push it past its base 25% damage increase ( at Master Swordsman )
Berserk offers increased accuracy, damage at the cost of lowering your Melee and Range Defense for the duration of the buff.
You will need to retrain Swordsman to get the effect a CSR can assist if you contact them.

Pikeman's PolearmArea2 has been updated, 3.75 damage 0.25 speed changed from 3.0 damage and 0.5 speed. It has a higher sac then Polearmhit3 making it expensive to use but powerful in the right situation.

Combat Medic
Deuterium Toss now has a higher base DOT, a new Skill modifier will be available soon to increase the damage to a maximum of 300 with a base at 100. The Skill Modifier will likely effect other abilities in the Combat Medics arsenal.

Clans
Introduction Quest to Death Watch and Black Sun difficulty has been lowered slightly.
New Crusader MK II and MK III armors now on the vendors
Crusader Armors have had insignias removed to fit our server.
Customization is currently unavailable on these armors but will be fixed ASAP!
New Rifle, Knuckler and Sword on Clans Vendor! Remaining weapons to be added are: Heavy, Carbine, 1H Sword and Polearm.


Experience
a New Experience System has been placed on the server to promote Group Based leveling.

Taken from some of my Personal favorite times in SWG was Spin Groups, I wanted to Promote that feeling of making a full party and hunting lairs for both EXP and Cash.

EXP is still x8 for our non combat professions, Combat professions is now subjective. Your base rate solo is considerably lower, Partying with another player increases EXP gained, Larger the party the more EXP gained. You must all be in range of each other (64m) and with a full credited party (10 players) You have higher EXP rates then previously set on the server.

To compliment this, the HP on Bols and Pikets has been increased on Dantooine, more NPCs will follow soon.

TEF
Bounty hunters should now be attackable by a Jedi target of the same faction

Entertainers now give + 50 accuracy, + 25 Terrain negotiation and + 15 Assembly bonus
They are private stats so they won't show up in your skills window, just ensure you are buffed with music and mind for
the enhancements to take effect during the duration of your Musician and Dancing buffs.

Jedi Revamp Discussion / Force Disciplines
« on: September 18, 2016, 03:51:08 PM »
Greetings, This is an early draft of the Discipline preview.

Disciplines are unlocked after completing the Jedi Knight trials.

They feature unique skill trees you only have limited number of points to spend on.

The example below is a Twin 4 point tree, You will have 4 points to spend total. You may train this how ever you like, Example train Offensive I - IV or train Offensive II and Defensive II.

You can reset this tree and select a different specialization if you like.

Each tree has unique enhancing skill mods and some new abilities. The goal is to give the player a role to play and focus on, Some may Focus on Force Powers and others the Defense tree.

As some of you have heard, the Force Cost of nearly everything is going up. As soon as you select a Discipline the Force Cost of the related abilities will go down. If you select Lightsaber Discipline, your saber attacks will cost considerably less. This will be most desirable if you plan to wield the new 5th generation Lightsabers that will be very costly, yet very powerful.

The Powers Discipline is planned to have Force Cloak at the top of one tree.

As I develop the Disciplines, this thread will be updated with more information.

Jedi Revamp Discussion / Unlock Changes
« on: September 18, 2016, 02:56:47 PM »
Unlocking will now be a two phase system.

Phase 1: Unlocking Force Sensitive.

Unlocking Force Sensitive should be a cool Mysterious journey.


Phase 2: Unlocking Jedi From Force Sensitive.

Unlocking Jedi from the New Force Sensitive will be more complex.

Jedi Revamp Discussion / Life System Changes
« on: September 18, 2016, 02:56:19 PM »
The Life Restoration system will feature some basic changes.

All Life Restoration features will be a gamble, it make work or it may not.

The Life Restoration mechanics will be changing, One week it may be Holocrons, another week a hidden quest, The reason for this is to prevent people from simply farming Holocrons non stop and essentially becoming immortal.

Essentially if you are not willing to risk a life your Jedi should be in hiding until you restore a life. Not all task will require Combat to allow the stealth aspect.

Jedi Revamp Discussion / Force Sensitive Changes
« on: September 18, 2016, 02:55:43 PM »
Force Sensitive

Force Sensitive is the new pre class require to Unlock Jedi.

Its being designed as a Stand Alone Combat Profession requiring 77 Skill points to Master.

It should offer a taste of the Force, with light duty abilities like Force Burst, a ForceRun1 like ability that last for 30 seconds but has a cool down.

Force Sensitive will offer a handful of skill mods.

Force Sensitive will have quest based tree unlocks and high experience cost.

SWG Restorations next major update has been released! Be sure and run your Auto updaters before checking it out.

Dungoens
A new Dungeon has been created, The Trade Federation Bunker. Located in North West Naboo it houses remnants of the Trade Federation.
This Dungeon is designed to be soloable with 1 room setup for group combat.

Loot
All weapon enhancements have been modified, now having a chance to drop Exceptional grade versions and improved high end loot rolls.
New Weapon Enhancements have been added, They can be found on New Nightsister mobs and inside the Trade Federation Bunker.

PvE
Many old and Iconic mobs have been modified to take less time to kill, It was felt that 30 mins to kill a Krayt was excessive, with this update a base line of 5 mins was designed for a Canyon Krayt dragon vs Average gear players.

This base line timer will be applied to DWB and BSB so it doesn't take 15 mins to kill one SBD however that is set for the next hotfix.

Combat Medic
Combat Medic got a revamp!

All Combat Medic skills now have descriptions and icons, plus the addition of new abilities!
Hemorrhage, Shock, Traumatize, Thyroid Rupture and Deuterium Toss will make Combat Medic a unique and powerful class we hope many will enjoy.

Commando
Commando also received some love in this update

More Commando Heavy weapons are craftable from Weaponsmith, The stats have been brought up to spec and with the new array of damage types, Commando will pack a heavy punch.

Overcharge shot 3 was changed to a Dizzy to complement the new Flashbang abilitiy, an AOE blind. Disintegrate Target is another new command for Commando that packs a heavy punch.

Jedi
With the new Jedi unlock coming out, the old Jedi unlock is now disabled.
Force Armor line of commands has been updated, both more effective and more costly.

We hope you enjoy this new patch, Restuss is right around the corner.

This patch also marks 1 year of SWG Restoration, An anniversary quest will be put into game this month with unique rewards celebrating 1 year of Restoration.
