OP  9/17/12 7:01:26 PM#1

The Star Wars: The Old Republic blog has been updated with a pair of posts detailing some significant incoming changes. First up is the shadow optimization coming in patch v1.4. Secondly, the team is preparing to further consolidate and stabilize high-population servers by transferring characters. As a result players may find their characters on a different server.

The shadow optimization will smooth out in-game shadows when the next large patch goes into effect. It's a great read for those who like to know and understand the behind the scenes details.

The new system provides full dynamic shadows. Simply stated, all characters, trees, and moving objects cast shadows onto the game world in Game Update 1.4. The previous system only generated dynamic shadows for characters. Moving through heavily treed planets such as Tython, the player will now see the subtle moving shadows cast by the leaves and trees.

With regard to the server consolidation issue: Players whose characters have been moved to a new high-density server may also have to consider renaming their characters after the move:

As a result, you may find that some of your characters are now located on a different server. If your characters have been moved, you can find their new location on the server selection screen by clicking on the “Characters” column. Please be aware that no characters have been deleted as part of this process – all of your characters are still available to you and are ready to play!

However, you may find a red exclamation point next to your character’s name on the character selection screen. This means that due to the consolidation, you will have to rename that character. Rest assured that we took a variety of factors into account when determining which characters needed to be renamed. For more information, please visit or Server Consolidation FAQ.

Given the general level of unrest over the 'free server moves' due to having to rename, probably a lot...

NGE, LOTRO, STO, KOTOR, Lego Star Wars > NGE 2 (SWTOR). SWG>ALL. Above hopefully subject to change.

The renaming is the not the only problem

I had 8 characters on Origin servers, and 8 characters on destination servers. They were on 2 separate servers on purpose. Now they will all be merged into one, stuffing up everything I was doing. I am certainly not playing this game any more. A waste of time.

A pity they did not make this known at the start of the transfer process, then would have saved a lot of time. I do not know why we could not transfer to 2 or 3 different destination servers, instead of being limited to one, otherwise would have transferred on Day One, and got transfer rewards

I always wondered what "High Density" means in numbers. Is it just like 5 more players so they can legitamently make that claim instead of saying server mergers or is it maybe actually a decent amount... granted I'm sure at most its not going over 10% more people on a single server.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

9/17/12 9:21:44 PM#8

Oh well there goes the rest of my character names,  How fracking nice.  Got to love they have no way to preserve the names of those who started in head start.

Oh well it don't matter any more my account died back last month, and I will not resub for nothing now.

Warhammer Online over and over again.

They could've just invested those 150 mils of bucks into WAR and DAoC. 50 mil in WAR(to sort out the bugs and get it going) and the rest into DAoC(to modernise it-they could've made DAoC 2 with those funds!). What an enormous waste of good talent AND money...

Ah if only!

But those are just Fool's dreams...

Please! Do carry on...

1.4 in short:

 

The good:

  • A new Flashpoint
  • A new Operation
  • Nice shadows
  • Gear matching for companions
  • Head slot toggle for companions
  • Recall back to origin from instance, and choose when to travel to the instance
  • Shift + right click = equip an item to a companion
  • Trading items to eligible players 2h after pickup.
  • Trade BOP 2h cooldown
  • Setting character mood

 

The bad:

  • Recolorizing the already lame 1.2 gear with even worse colors. (Not even new textures)
  • Increasing crowd control in PvP. Stun Wars FTW
  • Nerfing commandos and Consular skills due to "PvP" balance. (Commandos and Mercs will suck even more from now)
 
The failed:
  • No new quickslot bar
  • No gear set bonuses transfer
  • No dual specs
  • No chat bubbles

Isn't that pretty much exactly what Trion said with Rift?

Well having a 4th pillar does nothing for you when you don't get the rest of the game done. Funny what people are upset about now were all listed in the beta forums over a year ago. Every round of beta testing we would ask again for the same things to be fix or added. F2P is not going to save this game.

I'll play dem storeyz!

Most likely, that is.

Not that there is anything better to play(TOR actually ain't half Bad-they only crammed too much stuff into too small area. Overloaded fridge syndrome-here I come:)!), except few games...

Pretty much sums it up. Still sticking around only because I have a few more storylines to go through and I really think they're making advances to getting the foundation done. If they don't keep the 6 week update promise, though, I'd be hard pressed not to leave.

Nope. Trion released the ability to do free server moves months before they did the whole server merge/trial server thing.

Well what do you want? They have at least 100 empty servers they need to clean up lol.

They should have done this back in April when they still had somewhat of a population. /shrug

Well no matter how many leave now... a good chunk will come slinking back one the game goes F2P. That is how it always works... If they stay after that.. another question entierly.

Fledgeling upstart company Trion > EA/Bioware.

 

Comparing one of the largest IP + Developer/Publisher combinations to Trions first ever release is comical.
