CLUE Event Update!

Congratulations to those who have figured out the CLUE Event! To give everyone a fighting chance, we've decided to give you all one final hint!

In order to proceed in the CLUE Event, you must loot 11 CLUE Datadisks (you must have all 11 in your inventory when you start the event, and they will be destroyed). The CLUE Datadisks will lead you to an NPC who will give you the quest. Be warned, it involves a lot of puzzles, riddles, and finding things! Bring your thinking caps!

The prize for finishing the event is 1 random special edition pair of goggles and 1 random veteran reward painting or Krayt Dragon skull. You may have already noticed a couple players in-game wearing their new goggles!


If there's a time to get starting working on those CLUEs, it's now! CLUE datadisks will only be dropping for one more week! After this weekend, they will be removed from the loot tables, and you'll have to trade with other players to get the full set of 11. The actual quest will remain in-game along with the prizes.

Good luck to everyone, and get hunting!

Simply because you do not have a CLUE does not mean that a CLUE can not be had.

"Get" a clue. It can be gotten. It is a physical object. "A" and "Yet" suggests there is more than one to be had. Ok... gotta think like a dev... OW! Nevermind... I'll look like a dev "ewww"... I'll sniff it out... "is that me or you?" Hmmm... I'll just keep my ears open.

**Edit**
It can be had by anyone.

This is the worst excuse for an event description i have ever seen in my life. What is the clue we are looking for? Why do we need to find the clue? WHAT is the clue for?! Please! i know i might get banned or some crap for posting this... But in order for this event to be taken more seriously, The OP needs to at LEAST describe what the clues we are looking for are supposed to be for?

The whole idea is for the community to figure it out themselves. It's called discovery instead of being spoon fed...unbelievable. I think WoW still acceps subscriptions if you want boring linear content that takes no thought or effort.

:P since I know about the event I looked out for clues...suddenly I thought I would have seen one riding an eopie, second look - oh, no, away or whatever ; no clue. Then I observed the krayt dragon, which ate all and everything in front of Mos Eisley cantina for several minutes till a Dev or at least we thought it must have been one of the Devs made it disappear; could this be a clue for anything?
It might be my expectations and hopes the event is bringing up CH and BM into our lovely Alpha galaxy:) I will continue watching out for clues to strenghten my theory, or to completely refute it.

empen7
06-20-2012, 07:48 PM
I think the CLUE stand for Combat Live Upgrade Edition which basically the devs will be pre-CUing the SWGemu before it goes beta. Once the alpha goes beta it will be a 50/50 split of cu/pre-cu and the CLUE will be morphed into CLUE2.1, which is short for Clever Logistics Unlimited Enhancements (2.1) and godzilla will rain fire down on Tokyo from the sky.

No. Any game content, theme parks, professions, jedi, etc will be announced and visible on the SWGEmu trac. This is something completely different.

That means no Warren, no Hologrind, no Village (to name a few people keep asking about).

Someone said there were 8 clue discs and someone else said that disc number 3 just said the number 2. So is it maybe that the 8 discs together give the date of the event?

06-21-2012, 03:43 PM

As far as new CUSTOM content. Well. Maybe =)

06-22-2012, 05:44 AM
If you guys read cRush last answer will figure out that the disks will give you a coordinate. For what planet will be the next clue i guess or just look for it when you have the coordinate. a full coordinate is 8 digit, there are 8 disks.

Still, even if there are 10 disks, the first two could be the number of a planet or a city.

empen7
06-22-2012, 09:15 PM
well, coordinates could take up 10 spaces in total. if you have -4000, -4000 you would need 2 disks to show the minus'.

if there are more they could be what planet is on.

Just found a 70% spot of CLUE on Naboo,
so i put some Harvesters on Naboo to get that CLUE,
but sadly there was a Bug in my CLUE Harvesters hopper,
so when opening the hopper the CLUE was a goner,
so i was standing there in the wilderness of Naboo,
whining about not having a CLUE.

CLUE Event Update!

Congratulations to those who have figured out the CLUE Event! To give everyone a fighting chance, we've decided to give you all one final hint!

In order to proceed in the CLUE Event, you must loot 11 CLUE Datadisks (you must have all 11 in your inventory when you start the event, and they will be destroyed). The CLUE Datadisks will lead you to an NPC who will give you the quest. Be warned, it involves a lot of puzzles, riddles, and finding things! Bring your thinking caps!

The prize for finishing the event is 1 random special edition pair of goggles and 1 random veteran reward painting or Krayt Dragon skull. You may have already noticed a couple players in-game wearing their new goggles!


If there's a time to get starting working on those CLUEs, it's now! CLUE datadisks will only be dropping for one more week! After this weekend, they will be removed from the loot tables, and you'll have to trade with other players to get the full set of 11. The actual quest will remain in-game along with the prizes.

Good luck to everyone, and get hunting!

Now if anyone would just give a direction of where they drop. Certainly not off of Corsec npc's. Maybe just higher end mobs? Nightsisters, Geonosians etc?

The CLUE quests were fun and challenging to figure out. Especially the FINAL puzzle. :)

Everyone should be prepared to spend many many hours on this event as there are several stages. :)

No you can't. But that wouldn't really make sense anyway.

I created a combat character just to get these and gave up shortly after due to the rarity of finding them (maybe because I was killing low level mobs). Eventually looted CLUE #3 that way but bought the rest. Got them faster by crafting, making money, and buying them.

No. Just like $OE, all events and rewards are wrapped around combat classes only. /shrug

Well, even SOE didn't have only combat class events. They just made everything that people would want combat only.

So you have a brilliant suggestion for how crafters could "loot" things in an event that is of equal difficulty to combat, as not to unbalance things. Please share.

Perhaps, whenever a crafter is using a looted schematic, an uber-badass schematic(s) could be parsed from the information--like there's a programming backdoor in the software of the looted schematic that someone's datapad might randomly stumble-upon and access.

Looted schematic has x% chance to create [per system message and datapad entry] schematics for the uber-rare, or SWGEmu-only, stuff:
*Crafted (or should I write: engineered) krayt tissues/acklay bones/rancor bile/spider venom/other enhancements
*Crafted heavy duty clasps/heavy leather segments/other enhancements
*Bonus uses of crafted schematic
*Random looted schematics
*Crafted anti-decay kit/resource deed (% of final assembly would determine time and date of anti-decay kit expiration--set a max of like 6 months, while attached to an item)
*Instant shuttle beacons
*Instant @buff tickets
*Orbital bombardment beacons
*Clone of cRush in uber-DEV-god-mode to wail on all mobs in the area for 45 seconds

I could keep going, but those are just a few off the top of my head...

The problem with crafting is that you'd have to alter the code either for the crafting manager or the draft schematic to add those probabilities in there. With combat, it's a simple matter of adding something to the loot tables, where creatures pull from to decide what they drop based on a percentage. Crafting doesn't work that way.

That means, it's easy to add something like a new item to drop from the loot tables than it would be to add an item spawning from a crafting session. Though it's possible, you would have to alter the code away from 14.1, the goal of the project. Adding something to a loot table doesn't alter code.


Now watch, cRush is gonna take this as a challenge and find a way. Crafting loot tables or something =)

You got to think out of the box so to speak. You could have it be "loot" for combat classes. Crafted, surveyed and/or sampled by crafting classes. For example: craft "X" items and you have a chance that a "clue" disk will be given. Same with surveying and sampling. Same could be done for Entertainers/ID.


Thought it was very well done, even though I couldn't participate. :(

Seeing as I don't have a combat toon past novice marksman, I didn't even know about the event till about 3 days ago.:( But from what I heard it was done quite well.:clap:

I think you missed my other reply. It's simple to think "have a set percentage to get an item while crafting," but it's much more complicated to implement that. Combat loot tables, on the other hand, are actually made to do that. Not the crafting interface.

Don't worry, we think outside of the box for a lot of our events, and we're working on an idea to get the non-combat professions involved in our next big event =)

I did miss that. Sorry. Here is a thought. How about using the Artisan mission terminal and add artisan crafting missions? Or add something to the resource spawner so an item could be hand sampled? Just ideas!

The Clue disks will probably stop dropping on the next merge (with vendors/bazaars). The actual quest will probably just stay in there until 1.0.

Kreen, quick question..
I have been crafting and didnt get to decent pistol skill until last week, Since then I have killed over 1000+ npc mobs. I have killed Janta/nyim/Imp npc's/Force crystal hunters/ and night sisters. I have found some clue disks but not the set.
Last night with a friend we killed every mob in an imp post for 2 hours and got 1 disk...

My question, this quest/event seems to favor the AFK farmers who park at NPC's every night. Why are you going to stop the drops? Some people only play 3hours a day or so and have not gotten the disks. Yet the power/AFK gamers have gotten 2-10 sets. Do you favor the AFK or prefer us all to AFK combat??????

Please do not favor the power/afk gamers. I refuse to afk combat this game, I play!!!! the game so please favor the players/ casual players....

Thank you

I'll be quite honest. I'm not sure how to respond to this.

Ever stop to think that maybe you're killing the wrong creatures, or those with a low loot table drop that the CLUE disks are located in?
