    The SWGEmu Publish 9 - "Secrets of the Force, Redux" loading screen competition

    Hear ye! Hear ye!

    Publish 9 is looming
    Its just around the corner.
    You have waited far too long,
    SWGEmu Staff has worked too damn hard.
    And now... Now we are so close.
    We can almost taste it.
    So we need to spice things up.
    We need to make it even more... grand!
    But we need your help,
    We need your personal touch.

    So come one, come all.
    Release your inner artist.
    And let your Star Wars geekiness shine.
    Make us a damn fine Publish 9 themed loading screen.
    Winner gets a potato!!!
    And bragging rights.
    Gets to be immortalized through their masterpiece.

    Oh and, you might want to throw in a bit of lore
    to accompany your work of art.
    You know, just to explain
    where the inspiration for it came from.

    Rules are:

    1. Loading screen has to be Star Wars (Galaxies) themed
    2. Has to be Publish 9 themed (I'm gonna go with glowbats and space wizards and ****)
    3. No profanity
    4. No anything against SWGEmu rules and policies
    5. If you uses someone else work, give credit where credit is due
    6. Don't be sore losers

    NOTE: As you are well aware we are a fickle bunch, so this announcement is still and always will be subject to change... Or not.

    Winner(s) will be announced same time Publish 9 is announced. Probably.

    REMINDER: RL Monetary Trades in-game are a bannable offense

    REMINDER: RL Monetary Trades in-game are a bannable offense

    Lets start off with a quote from our SWGEmu Test Center & Basilisk Rules & Policies

    Quote Originally Posted by Vlada View Post

    1.7. On SWGEmu Servers, all accounts and characters used for financial gain will be deleted/banned. It is forbidden to use your account for:
    • 1.7.1. Soliciting real life monetary trades.
    • 1.7.2. Purchasing of in-game credits or items for real life currency.
    • 1.7.3. Exchange of in-game items/credits for real life items.
    • 1.7.4. Exchange of in-game items/credits for items/currency from other games.
    Basilisk and TC: Nova are temporary test servers, which means everything you have on them, every character, item or credit will be eventually wiped when SWGEmu project is complete. SWGEmu project is free, and everything in game is free and available to anyone willing to put in time and some effort to obtain it by just playing.

    Now that we have that out of the way, lets reiterate. Buying or selling of in-game items and/or credits is against our rules and is a bannable offense. Credits transactions are logged and if caught all those involved will be permanently banned from any and all of our services. SWGEmu does not in any way support nor does it condone any real life monetary trades for in-game items and/or credits.

    Anyone who has purchased credits or in-game items, even if their account has not been banned, should ask for a chargeback immediately and report credit/item seller to paypal or their bank as a scammer.

    Furthermore we will be instituting a "Snitch" program, for those caught or just willing to help us and themselves and get a fresh start on SWGEmu servers. If you bought credits/items and you got caught, you will be offered an option to start fresh with a new account if you cooperate and help us get rid of those breaking our rules and ruining the emulator for everyone.

    Veteran rewards coming back to Basilisk, but with a twist

    September 2016
    The SWGEmu Staff

    Veteran rewards coming back to Basilisk, but with a twist

    On September 17th 2016. we will be re-enabling Veteran rewards on Basilisk. Now for the twist part... Please try to keep an open mind and remember that Basilisk is still our development tool and that we are all helping test. We will be wiping the records of all previously claimed Veteran rewards, so everyone will be able to get the Vet rewards of their choice again even if they previously claimed it.

    PLEASE NOTE: No previously claimed Vet rewards will be deleted, just the records of them being claimed will be removed from the database.

    Thank you for your patience, your understanding and continuous support.

    Vendors disappearing and possible Basilisk Rollback

    December 19th, 2015
    SWGEmu Staff

    Vendors disappearing and possible Basilisk Rollback - 12/19/15

    Well something got messed up pretty bad. Unfortunately bunch of vendors, shuttleports and starports went poof. While we are investigating the issue, we are making backups and trying to find the underlying cause. At the moment the worst case scenario would be a rollback. If that happens, and we are hoping it wont have to come to that, all characters created in the last few hours, all items looted or crafted, all XP gained, all skill boxes trained, pretty much everything you've done after the last backup, will no longer exist in the database, and for all intents and purposes will be gone.

    Rest assured that we are trying to resolve this as painlessly as possible, and we will do everything in our power to avoid item or character loss.

    Backing up the server takes approximately 90 minutes and a reboot will take a few hours on top of that, so we are looking at 4 hours downtime at least. Of course, in situations like this its very difficult to predict how long it might take and how many restarts might be needed.

    Thank you for your patience and support.

    Greetings SWGEmu Community!

    As a volunteer project, SWGEmu is constantly looking for new community members to step up and assist and support the community. If you are interested in taking on the responsibility of an SWGEmu Staff member to further our goals, we encourage you to take the time to apply for our SWGEmu
    EC/CSR/Support training program.

    The SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support training program is designed to introduce community members to different aspects of the duties and responsibilities of the SWGEmu Staff, while giving them a chance to develop a close relationship and eventually join the SWGEmu Staff team.

    The following are the minimal requirements to be accepted into to this program:
    • Professionalism
    • Excellent work ethic
    • Positive attitude
    • Ability to work and learn in a team environment
    • Sufficient free time

    3. Once accepted for SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support training program, the volunteer will be mentored by a member of the SWGEmu Staff for a period of 2 months.
    4. During these 2 months, the intern will assist in IRC, on forums and on Live support.
    5. After the SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support training period has ended, an evaluation will be completed by the SWGEmu Staff to determine if the SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support trainee has met all duties and expectations expected of them.
    6. The trainee may then remain as a support assistant or apply for an available position in the SWGEmu Staff.
    7. If accepted, an apprenticeship period of 4-8 weeks will begin and the apprenticeship will work closely with the staff member of the department they applied for.
    8. At the end of the apprenticeship, another evaluation will be completed to determine if the intern would be a good fit for the chosen SWGEmu Staff department.
    9. If accepted, the apprentice will be offered the opportunity to join the SWGEmu Staff as a full-time member.
    10. The new SWGEmu Staff member will perform their department's duties as well as continue assisting with Support.
