Star Wars Galaxies PC game- Free MMO

Post  Ref Minor on Fri Oct 14, 2011 10:33 pm

I am going to be playing Star Wars Galaxies via the SWG emulator. It's free.

SWGEmu.com

You can get the discs off eBay but a torrent of the Pre- CU SWG discs mounted with iso works until you can get one. Just google SWG Pre-CU torrent

It's free and a pure sandbox MMO with deep crafting and PvP and designed to build communities, it will eventually have spaceflight. There's 50k people registered at the SWGEmu forum and always people in the game. The server will be wiped at some point to launch the final version but at the moment I am trying to work out it's complexity and screwing up royally so starting a new character will be good.

For those that don't know SWG was originally a sandbox like OE but Sony saw the success of WoW and turned it into copy and 75% of the population left. Since then a team of developers have been creating a server emulator for the original version using their own code, so if you have the discs it's totally legal but I used the torrent download ok after I won the eBay auction ($3) whilst waiting for the mail.

It's still in development and a bit buggy so you should feel at home if you played OE. First impressions are good, I hid behind an AT-AT's leg last night but it moved and crushed me.

It's 8years old now so should run on most people's PCs. Did I mention it's free.

My first night out camping. My Scout now can craft his own campsite from foraged materials, although the red dots on the tac screen are gathering creatures, I have just noticed my basic camp skills do not entirely protect the campsite so I am hoping I dont die in the night.

I am really enjoying this game, its the first game I have tried that gives me the OE feeling, you are dumped into a world and need to find your own way.

The missions are basic kill the creature's lair for cash. The rest is like OE you do your own thing using what the game gives you.

There are 32 professions to choose from, Smuggler, bounty hunter, martial arts expert, rifleman, swordfighter, doctor, combat medic, scout, ranger, droid engineer, creature handler, artisan, architect, even musician or dancer which heals the mind stat. when used in the Cantina/Pub/Bar, there will eventually be spaceflight so Pilots too. Its 8 years old and should run on most computers and its free.
