Since I already went through the trouble of getting this to work and have toons here, I’m probably just going to stay here and goof around for however long the TC stays up (supposedly, there are no plans to take it down anytime soon, but who knows....).

As far as I know, Legends is the only NGE server that can be considered "working-ish." PSWG still has a long way to go, last time I checked. I think everything else is Pre-CU.

Probably this will be the very last nge server I've tried ... Every nge re-emu /src coded emu seems to be doomed to fail..

So either stop with persuing my nge fix all together and find a modern game that gives me something that comes close to it ..Or  when. The src code comes public set up a "private server" for the old guild and relive the nge era that way

I will be waiting for ProjectSWG if this doesn't launch in the next few months. They are slow but they are like a train. non stop movement forward and they have made their own code so when there is an issue they can fix it asap.

I'll probably stay until the server closes then i guess i'll fuck off back to SWTOR or xbox. :-\

Considering the choices for NGE are now a server that supposedly barely 'works' and has a very poor reputation, a project that is making extremely slow progress because it's an EMU so it's years away (and unless i'm wrong, it looks like they're changing some content...), and a project that will only have a test centre server where things are given out, i have no idea what i'm going to do for NGE. I suppose i'll just give Basilisk another try until a functioning NGE server magically appears.

ArcheAge, again.  I have too much time/money invested in that one to start on something else.   Was hoping for SB to take off, because I like the end-game NGE.  Won't be going to a pre-CU or CU server because the amount of content is just sooooo limited I know I'd get bored quick.

I have been playing on Legends a month or so and while its not perfect, it is live and for the most part fully functional. JTL works just like it did on live. Only big issues I have seen is the server having to reboot every 6-8 hours and the chat server crashing fairly often. The server isn't patched all the way up to the lastest version before Live went down but it is close and they are working on it constantly. SWG Legends is a really good server and if you want to play NGE that is the place to go. I am just glad that i found it because it is awesome getting back into the galaxy.

JTL is the bomb btw. We have a really good pilot community.

Hope to see you there

It's a shame the SB dev team ran into some hurdles that couldn't be easily overcome. I tested out Legends before this and the community is... well it speaks for itself. I'm not really too keen on looking for other NGE alternatives at this point. Perhaps this project will be revived and eventually go live, or maybe it won't. I'm not really playing any MMOs at this point as I've been busy with Mass Effect Andromeda and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I'll check in here every now and then unless it all just gets shut down.

Request to close the server is denied, I'm bringing more people in for this.  Myself and a friend, are already about to commit to monthly donations $10-$15/month from just the two of us.  Even if it's just the TC server running.   Right now I'm currently level grinding the long way to test out all the quests and content and combat, although I have alts whom are level 90.  Like others my friends and I really enjoyed the end game of NGE.

And I know where a lot of former SWG players have flocked to as I've seen many.   I am about to make a post on that game forum to let them know about Stella Bellum.

This is the best version of NGE I've seen from EMU's to date, and so far for me the least buggy.   I didn't grow up with this game in CU or pre-cu.  And I have no desire to play them, it wasn't until yesterday I found out about this SB EMU and watched a bunch of videos to confirm mechanics, and original NGE game play.

Right now It's me and 3 other people and 2 more on the way who are just now starting Stella Bellum.

No it's not, It was confirmed as such:

-StellaBellum Live - Friday at 12:19 AM 05/04/2017
The TC is still up will remain up indefinitely.  The only time it goes down is for maintenance.  A live server isn't off the table yet.  We're in talks about a solution.
Title: Re: wheres everyone gonna be playing when closes
Post by: starbrim on 08-05-17, 01:28:47
Thank you for the clarification, I was assuming as much but I have been seeing people talking about the test server being shut down, but was confused when I read the announcement regarding the live one.

Just discovered this server last night. Old player (played on/off from launch to the end) looking to scratch that SWG itch.

So what's the problem or hold up with this server? Money, time, talent or all?

I think all of the above:  Some glitchy code borked the live release, and they are missing some talent.  Although they claim money isn't an issue, if you monitor their balances, it is a problem none the less.  Whoever pays for the Test server is taking a financial hit.

Seen you around, Hellsayer. I'd be keen to group up sometime. What are you looking to do? Aside from crafting I've been working on Mustafar prequests for Champion of the Galaxy. I could definitely use a partner for The beetle cave, DF1, DF2 etc. I also hope to unlock DWB (jabba's themepark). Yesterday I ran a few city battles. Even solo I'm having a blast. Holler at me sometime.

Because of the lack of players, I ended up just making some medic bots. Managed to get nearly a complete set of Mandalorian armor (just missing 1 BL for the gloves), and yesterday I finally finished the HK-47 series (really challenging to do using bots). Might do some Kashyyyk content next

Yeah, same here. I went to their Discord and the first thing I saw was Dark along with him mentioning Jerry. Went back to the site's staff list and saw Tyrone (I think Ristana went under that name in Discord at one time, can't remember exactly.)

Don't think I'll be playing on that server.

New Project. But it has a few familiar faces from Legends; both in staff and regular players.

i am unaware of the drama. it always happens when im out of the country lol. been digging around on here everywhere and ive only found that i guess some devs split idk. i hope they keep  this server open. i enjoy relaxing and dont get bothered much. i have an account i use on legends when this is undergoing maintainence or restart or whatever happens every few days. been offline today though hoping it comes back up soon.

Post by: Darka on 12-09-17, 04:00:42
Dev Split is pretty much the story of any SWG project,
Understandable, but it was something that always left me wondering how the EMU project could have changed the landscape if it had had all the teams working together, to deliver one project like the initial idea was years ago.
But alas, I dont have anything against anyone, or any project,
Each to their own,

Tyrone isn't RisTanA, and RisTanA isn't on staff. I haven't seen him in a while actually.

Oh, ok. Thanks for clarifying.

Regardless, I've decided to play on the server anyway to satisfy the occasional itch. I must say that it's better than what I was expecting.

I've been playing on the Bloodfin pre-cu server for several months since I didn't start playing until after NGE was implemented.  I started playing on Bloodfin because it included content from NGE.  However, I am growing bored with it because of the lack of quest content and the JTL is still not functional on the pre-cu server but they have managed to add some planets. 

It was just announced that they are converting their test server to a live NGE server complete with all quests, collections, GCW invasions, and fully functioning jump to lightspeed.

The XP is boosted on Bloodfin EMU, so I'm hoping that it will be boosted for the NGE server as well, but we'll find out soon enough.

Highly recommend Legends! I though I'd have to give up on SWG after SB but turns out a lot of the stuff people said about Legends was just slander put out by Bloodfin(shit show) and Xiaos Kun, who runs VOH, and has a significant record of stirring up drama on Live and the EMUs. Legends has indeed delivered, almost feature complete, fancy patcher with ILM integration, transparent funding and staff, everything is the real deal.

The conduct of people from Legends in SB test server was reason enough for me to never create an account there.  With the over dramatic tone of your post, please stay on Legends server it's perfect for you.

"Xaos Kun" does not run VOH, that is libel created from the SWG Legend community. No drama has been on VOH, but I heard there has been some over at SWG Legends, the lead developer deleted their Discord and quit.

I've been using VoH as a means to scratch my occasional SWG itch.

I haven't played for a while, but I considered it "Beta" in a sense that they weren't actively advertising from what I had seen and simply trying to get things sorted out first. Which I like. I'm not in the know with them atm, so feel free to check in on their Discord and Website.

They also had a Stella Bellum team member lend a hand on a few things so that was pretty much what made me stick with them. (Simply me being biased.)

I was going to play Legends again simply due to a few old friends had made a character on there. I was banned because of my making another account on the same IP address, which is fair. I forgot about their rules; I simply don't care to dispute the ban. (This isn't me knocking them.)

Either way, go where you want. Some folks here still play on the Test Server while a few familiar faces are at VoH. To each their own.

I'm still playing on the test center here, plus 3 brothers from other mothers, we loved and still love SWG, remember when I found this and told them, they were burning down the net downloaded from here, this is real Star Wars, not that swtor, that swtor is like watching JAWS without the shark.
