As you may or may not have heard, Restoration Gaming has begun work on a new Combat Upgrade server based on the NGE source code called Restoration III.
This new server will allow us to better emulate the combat and balance of the Combat Upgrade than the current live server RestorationCU, as well as include some NGE features that we consider an upgrade over what the CU had, such as the NGE creature crafting system, the reverse engineering system, and the option of levelling through questing.
It will also include most NGE content, as well as some custom content. Kashyyyk, Mustafar, and Jump to Lightspeed will all be included at launch, as well as the Heroic Instances.
Jedi on Restoration III will retain many of the “hardcore” mechanics implemented on Restoration Classic and RestorationCU.
The current publicly accessable server is RestorationCU (Resto2), an open-source Combat Upgrade based server built on Core3 (the swgemu codebase). Feel free to play here for the time being, as we have no intention of wiping or shutting Resto2 down even after the new server launches.
To discuss Restoration III, or see the latest developement info, join our discord channel HERE. We are also looking to fill a galactic senate, and QA positions for Restoration III. you can apply for those positions by direct messaging either myself or Halo on Discord.
We are at capacity at capacity for the current wave of testing, but we will announce the next wave on Discord when we are ready to increase the TC population. Applications are still accepted in the mean time HERE
