Not another election update! Here come the Artisans...
Posted by: Archive Bot, 26 Apr 2003 04:35
We interrupt the thrilling stream of election news to bring you details of one of the most anticipated pieces of information for many.

Kevin "Q-3PO" O'Hara has finally given the masses our first look at the Artisan skill tree. Artisan will be the first step for many on their journey towards 'crafting' success.

This week we bring you the skill tree for the Artisan profession!

Crafters are a vital part of the SWG economy. From furniture to blasters, they make virtually everything that players buy in the game. Although there are some interesting things to find in the world, all of the best items are made by players. There are mechanics in the game to ensure novice crafters have a place in the economy.

A little further information about the skill tree for you: Assembly affects the quality of the item made. Experimentation is used to make custom modification to the item's stats. Customization determines the colors you have to choose from when making items like clothes.

Have a great weekend!

Posted by: Archive Bot, 06 Feb 2003 16:38
We are now in the second half of the week long vote to elect the new President and Vice-President of Avian Technology and Trade, and if you haven't cast your vote already your time is running out.

It's been hard to avoid the month long debates in the member's forums, on every topic under the twin Tatooine suns. But if you are still unsure on who to give you vote to then go [url=]here[/url] to find a review of the infamous Dumin Inquisition, which includes candidate responses on numerous policy questions and chat transcripts from the live debates.

To cast your vote, go to your Section Archive. You can find the link to the left, under your username. But be quick, the little Avian astromech droid A2-V2 will stop taking votes on Sunday evening.

500 crafters sitting on a wall.....
Posted by: Archive Bot, 18 Jan 2003 03:53
With the Devs teasing us this week, saying that they had yet to decide on a PA size cap, Kevin Q-3PO O'Hara finally put an end to the continuous pleas with this weeks Firday FAQ...

12.27 What are the maximum and minimum sizes for player associations?
When you first establish a player association hall, it's allowed to have only one member: you. But within 7 days, your PA must have at least 5 members, or the PA will be dissolved. We repeat this check every 7 days thereafter. The maximum size for a player association is 500.

...and there was much rejoicing.
Q also updated FAQ 12.22, which changes the maximum size of a group from 8 up to 20.

You can see who won the race to be first [url=]here[/url].
