...Your Starship?

Post  Darka on Sat May 02, 2009 12:26 pm

Significant or not?

Mentioned in todays update, they have confirmed space travel, but is this opening the door way to a greater space aspect?

I didn't really get that from what he said. It sounded more like he was trying show how desperate the planet was. But surely Bioware can see how important space is to Star Wars and I can't imagine anyone not wanting to encompass it into an MMORPG for SW's.

I think he knew what he was saying. At this point in the game, Bioware knows that the fans are ripping everything said down into pieces and what they hear from "they will steal your starship" is probably what I heard; "you can have a starship of your own that could be stolen".

If that ends up being the case, then I am terribly excited about the game, because my character is a novice fighter working on being a military specialist in all aspects.

And it is Star Wars. Space-flight is pretty important at this point.

As I recall there was another mention of starships in the bounty hunter reveal. Something about the cost of a customised blaster being more that the cost of a starship. I was surprised that more people didn't leap onto that, my assumption being that there must be player buyable ships for them to have a value. Does beg the question how good that blaster would have to be though.

I was wondering whether in the initial release that BioWare might keep everyone ground based with the possibility to buy transit to another planet/system from NPCs then release player space flight as a later expansion. From a marketing point of view there is a lot of sense in keeping some big ticket items back from the first release. If they give us a brand new game to learn and explore, why also give us space flight? Wait for 6 months until players have throughly explored most of the planets, then release space flight and some new places to fly to.

Spaceships

Post  Master Nuuk on Sun May 03, 2009 8:25 am

Sounds very promising...A good way to use my pilot skills from EvE Online!!!
This expands gaming experience towards what I was expecting.

Very good news!

I used to love the starships in SWG... hope I still have the skills needed to stay alive if they put them in the game. But I agree with Korrin, I'd rather see them introduced a bit down the road after TOR is released.

Starships

Post  Master Nuuk on Tue May 05, 2009 8:53 am

I have seen the video almost a dozen times and now I have some doubts...I find his words a little bit rethorical regarding starships.

I hope Im wrong

....that is actually a very good question..will you be able to keep the ship or would you have to buy a new one? Because on one hand, you can go with having your ship blow up and you get picked up by a passing ship. On the other though, you can also go unrealistic with it and just have yourself spawn on the nearest spaceport and have an engineer tell you that you need a certain amount of credits to fix whats left of your space ship.

Or if you put the two hands together, you could get blown up in space, get picked up while in an escape pod. Then your character can pay an engineer crew to get the ship from space and repair for a certain amount of time like for maybe an hour or more (to make it seem like they are actually working on it).

How does that idea sound?

Awesome-tastic.
Although if you die alot, it would seem improbable that you keep surviving every (i assume explosive) destruction of your ship, and happen to float by a ship with an engineer crew of sufficient skill to salvage and repair your ship"

smugglers luck my friend smugglers luck lol.

Well if people died a lot that would be a problem...how about you just use an escape pod to get to the nearest spaceport/capital ship and they send people after your ship then?

yeah like saying you need certain resources to create your very own ship, well why grind looking for the resources when there are people that can find them for you. Now that is a good business, possibly one of the best crafter like businesses to think of for space travel if you have to find materials for your ship. (highfive)
