    Veteran Reward System Modifications for Testing

    Veteran Reward System Modifications for Testing

    September 2021
    The SWGEmu Team


    As we approach the 1.0 status of our project (still no timeline, no worries!), we will be testing various changes to newly-generated veteran rewards.

    This will enable us to gather and review data on play styles and make better decisions in the future.

    To be crystal clear: any changes made for testing will affect only veteran rewards generated after the changes; they will not be retroactively applied to any existing items.

    Is there a list of the updated rewards or is that still to come?

    Just log on TCPrime, your claims reset every weeks, so you can claim them all again and again...

    Live on both TC-Prime and Basilisk.

    This is an incremental thing, over time we will evolve changes to see how it works.

    Many people may not even notice a thing since we currently do not make any changes to existing items.

    Interesting! I did notice one change on Prime, but I wasn't sure if it was because of Prime or if it was a bigger change:



    If it's a bigger change, then this carries a bit more weight to it:

    I imagine that would be a nice solution to discourage people from creating accounts just to farm ADKs.

    This one seems like it's just adding an extra step to them being sold. Rather than selling the deed, they'd be selling "30k of whatever resource you want":



    I was hoping to see some of the additional rugs, furniture, paintings, etc. that we can get from the frogs on Nova. That's ok, still something to look forward to into the future.

    ...

    Just the first step, we heard the community say they want to see us using Basilisk for more 1.0+ testing so we picked a smaller idea to test.

    And yes we're trying to figure out how to stop the ADK farming, while also thinking through how a 1.0+ server might work.

    One step at a time, next couple of steps will be more about mechanics of the vet system, rather then items, those are pretty easy to change in the 1.0+ world.

    how do anti-decay kits and resource deeds and unpowered harvesters improve the game?

    What about modified versions? What if anti-decay kits cut the decay rate in half, or down to 25%? What if resource deeds duplicated an existing stack up to 30k units? What if the harvester thing was just really really efficient instead of forever-lasting?

    Great stuff. Any improvements to curb farming vet rewards (incidentally) is good news to me! Ill pop on and test!

    Lightsaber PSGs stop PvP being 20 jedi vs 20 jedi dervish circles with the only diversity being what kind of hat they are wearing.

    The entry for new/returning players goes from go get an adk and a set of armor+psg to grind out village for 6-8weeks then grind a jedi template, then get FRS.

    I must have claimed some vet rewards on day one of this change. Mostly to make some quick credits due to laziness and/or limited time.

    This change is so good I couldn't care less that I can no longer trade them. Awesome idea!

    So anyone that claims an adk on Basilisk now will see it as no trade?
