Restoration III Beta Launch

THE COMBAT UPGRADE LIVES! Welcome to Restoration III, Star Wars Galaxies fans. We are excited to announce that Restoration III Open Beta has arrived. There has been a lot of excitement building around this project and we are thrilled you have chosen to join us! While we have spent countless hours testing in the alpha phase, there are going to be bugs, there are going to be exploits, and there are going to be crashes. To better report these bugs we have assigned Senators that will field any bugs or exploits that you encounter. Please refer to the #Senate-Seats in discord for the respective position for the bug you are reporting.

There are a few professions that are not completed yet and will not work as intended until further notice. These professions are Squad Leader, Commando, Creature Handler, and the Bio-Engineer. Other professions are functionally working however, expect there to be a few bugs with those professions.

While we welcome all Quality of Life suggestions, please understand the focus of the open beta currently is to resolve bugs and exploits. If you have QOL suggestions, please hang on to those until there is an announcement from the Senate in regards to QOL.

Finally, this is a Beta. This is not the live server. There will be a wipe from Beta to the live server. The wipe will be announced in expectation of the live server.

Restoration III and the future of the Restoration Project

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
