Roadmap Update

These phases are in order of release, the planned features for the next couple of big content patches! 🎉 We’d like to apologize for the delay on getting this roadmap out to you, as everything had taken a backseat to fixing the chat server which 🤞 appears to be working and stable as of our fix deployed last night.

Being a small team, we don’t want to attach an ETA – as unforeseen bugs and personal schedules may cause delay… like they did with this roadmap. As always, they’ll release when they release!

We can say however that we’re quickly approaching a full development team and once everyone is comfortably set up will have the capacity to move much quicker on these deliverables. If you have prior SWG development experience and want to contribute, please message JarJar Binks#0775 on Discord.

= Phase 1 =

  • Progression Manager Implemented
    Framework for tracking server wide progressions to different heroic dungeons and Mustafar, complete with an in-game event board for players to check progress, and micro events that will automatically trigger.
  • Jedi
    Internal testing of Jedi abilities and commands completed, TEF and Bounty systems polished, and Jedi unlockable. 
  • Mustafar
    All instances and dungeons tested for group difficulty, and Mustafar ready to be unlocked by players.
  • Collections & Quests
    With every major patch, we will introduce new content for all players to explore. This could take the form as a collection, world boss, or simply a new farming location and you’ll have to find these in game once released to find out more!
  • Missing Components
    Missing weapon and armor enhancements added to the game.

= Phase 2 =

  • Galactic Civil War
    Base busting, crack down scans, and GCW releases.
  • Ranger
    Stealth and exploration class with unique abilities implemented.
  • Bombad Boxes
    Purchasable with in-game credits, these random boxes will give players a possibility to receive Veteran and TCG rewards.
  • Collections & Quests
    With every major patch, we will introduce new content for all players to explore. This could take the form as a collection, world boss, or simply a new farming location and you’ll have to find these in game once released to find out more!

= Phase 3 =

  • To be revealed 😊

Lastly, we will still be releasing quick fixes as we find and squash bugs, and in addition have ongoing planned content that could be released irrespective of these larger patches:

  • Commando fixes
  • Creature Handler re-balance

R3 June Community HoloNet

Hello Restoration 3 players! Each team member would like to share a little behind the curtain: what they’re working on, what they’re excited about, and who Thimble is.

Halo (Project Lead)
Its been an exciting and challenging first few weeks, now I feel things are starting to get squared away and balanced out like I envisioned. Moving forward I am excited to finish up Commando and begin working on Ranger. Commando is in a pretty good spot but it’s missing a big part, grenades! I didn’t forget about them, I just have not had time to add them. We will see some cool AOE effects for Commando with grenades coming soon.

The last few weeks have been… insane.
Chaotic, miserable, stressful, and amazing.
What we’ve built here is something we’ve wanted to do for years. This has been the dream, and since launch, reality has exceeded that dream in every way possible.

Sure, the launch was a little rocky, but it was rocky for the best reason possible: because so many more people than expected shared our dream for the server. It’s been amazing logging in and seeing this game feel alive in a way that I haven’t seen since live. We have entertainers entertaining and socializing, groups playing together, friends and enemies being made, guilds forming and splintering, Darth Friggin Maul playing, and a billion samplers grabbing whatever that is spawned behind the starport on Kashyyyk right now.

Life is good, and Resto is Besto, and I am so glad to be here, playing and sharing this game that I love with all of you.

Katalaw (Dev)
It’s been an eventful (and sometimes sleepless) couple of weeks for the server launch, that’s for sure! Big shout out to the awesome community for the support and patience as we passed over 5000 accounts and 700 unique concurrent sign-ins! I’ve been hard at work on server stability, including launching a new and faster website, improved authentication server, and just this week an auto-updating launcher!

There’s still a lot of things on my wishlist, but we still have more work to do on getting things stable, so I’m hard at work on scaling up Restoration to an auto-scaling multi server. That means fewer restarts, less email spam, and more breaks for the hamsters spinning their wheels on the chat server!

Since launch I’ve been focusing on bug fixes and user tickets, working on rebuilding the script(s) for taming babies from a lair, and working with ‘N’ on our first custom quest (currently at the draft stage). 

Archic (Dev Intern): It is a pleasure to join the Restoration 3 team! I’m looking forward to meeting the community and helping make R3 an awesome experience. I have been learning the behind the scenes systems and getting ready to perform any tasks that are assigned to me.

Looking forward to continuing to play on the server! See you in game 👋

HSlayer (Art Lead)
While working on the R3 Project I don’t just work on new content which has been showcased here and there but I also get to address some very old graphical issues that persisted for the entire time the game was live. Everything from textures pointing to localized locations such as the JTL terminals and shipwright workstations, which then caused them to not light up like every other terminal in the game.

Even cases where the wrong texture was applied such as the seeker droid which has been eternally sourcing its texture from the probot while it was obviously intentionally supposed to resemble Maul’s probe droid from Episode I.

As I move forward I will continue to tackle these base game issues until hopefully the default appearance box will become just a memory.

Terminals now glow properly
Proper droid textures!

I’m having a great summer – between wonderful weather, camping, and biking, I was happy to devote some time to Restoration 3. With the help of Sky, we were able to pull some stats from the first week of the server which I think are pretty interesting:    

(Rebels are the underdog, in space!)
(Since then we’ve had almost 1,000+ accounts sign up, super exciting!)
(Many Bothans died to give us these statistics)

Patch Notes 6/15/2021

Credits now split among group.

Accuracy increased slightly
Thimble has had his level lowered from 505 to 450.

some dynamic weapon loots had their prices set far above what was intended for looted items. This has been corrected.

Gambling table schematic skill requirement has been corrected

Death Watch re-breather quest no longer checks for the NGE skillbox, and can now be completed

over the next few days, RE will continue to receive more tweaks to make it both fun and usable.

Many changes to many mobs. some mobs were made Elite. Some mobs were made stronger. Some mobs now have more specials. One mob was added named Thimble, but Thimble does not spawn.


Droids now have half the armor they had before.

Welcome Home – Restoration 3 Takes Off

Tatooine, Mos Eisley – May 28, 2021 – At 6pm Central Time (CT) the Restoration team is ecstatic to announce that its permanent live server for Star Wars Galaxies will go online.

We proudly present to Star Wars fans new and old, a unique blend of content from every era of SWG; plus the reworking of key mechanics to address systemic problems that persisted in the live version of the game.

Players will receive a special founder’s gift for creating a character during the launch weekend: a custom R3 Golden Cybernetic plaque to decorate your house and commemorate the server’s launch, and an in-game shirt that will give your characters a small XP boost.

Star Wars Galaxies R3 Key Features:

  • A player driven economy – certain rewards and mechanics have been removed, worked into the crafting tree, or made cosmetic only – to ensure players are the driving force in the market.
  • Fight in space and on land – Jump to Lightspeed is fully implemented, and players can experience group squadron action in PvE or PvP combat.
  • Explore a sprawling sandbox world – From complete character skill customization, player cities, guilds, crafting empires, colour schemes, pets – make your character truly unique.
  • Exciting force system – With a custom Jedi unlock method designed to remain mysterious, our lightsaber friends are again wondrous, rare, and valuable. However the path to becoming a Jedi is dangerous, and death penalties are severe.
  • Community server-wide progression – Individual actions will add up, with players being able to open up different parts of the game by performing certain prerequisites, giving a group sense of purpose to end game content.
  • A dedicated development team – The Restoration 3 team listens to player feedback through the Senate system, and has exciting new content planned to keep every player busy for years to come.

About The Restoration 3 Team

The team is a  bunch of Star Wars fans who enjoyed Galaxies in it’s Combat Upgrade form, and have just enough knowledge and passion to present this project to the world. Building off it’s prior iterations in Restoration 1 & 2 – R3 is the culmination of past efforts and represents our vision of a fun and rewarding game.

As a small team however, Restoration 3 is not launching bug free. We will depend on our active and growing community to report issues, and provide balancing insight.

The work will continue, and in addition to future planned custom content and systems, we’re excited for what the future will bring with the next chapter of Star Wars Galaxies.
