Atmospheric Flight

  • Atmospheric flight is allowed on any of the original 10 ground planets (Corellia, Dantooine, Dathomir, Endor, Lok, Naboo, Rori, Talus, Tatooine, and Yavin 4).
  • Use the Launch Ship radial menu option from the ship control device in the datapad to launch the ship into atmospheric flight. You can also launch the ship into atmospheric flight using the toolbar.
  • Use the Land Ship radial menu option from the ship control device in the datapad to land/store the ship from atmospheric flight. You can also land/store the ship from atmospheric flight using the toolbar, or the newly added /landShip command.
  • Once in flight, use the newly added /inviteShip (or /target , followed by /inviteShip) command to invite passengers/gunners aboard the ship (either POB ship or non-POB ship with a currently unoccupied turret slot).
  • Passengers/gunners can leave the ship by using /escapePod or the escape hatch.
  • The ship owner can kick passengers/gunners off the ship using the existing /kickFromShip command.
  • You can launch directly into space from atmospheric flight. Once the ship is above 6000m altitude, an "ENTER SPACE" button will be displayed on the pilot's HUD that will allow direct launch into the corresponding space zone. Clicking the button will display a popup menu to select the space zone's hyperspace point to launch to.
  • If the ship hits the terrain while flying, it will sustain damage proportionate to the ship's current mass and speed.
  • All forms of ship-to-ship PvP are available while in atmospheric flight - factional and privateer factional helper (/spacepvprebel, /spacepvpimperial, /spacefaction), player bounty system, guild war, guild squad PvP, duel.
  • Player bounty system and guild war exemption/exclusive status fall under the "space" ruleset while in atmospheric flight.
  • If the ship is special forces (including privateer factional helper special forces ship) while in atmospheric flight, GCW factional presence is granted to occupants with the same faction as the ship, regardless of the occupant's special forces/combatant/on leave status. If any occupant is granted GCW factional presence, the ship is reported on the GCW Factional Presence window of the War Terminal/War Intel Pad/War Table, but NOT pinpointed on the planet map.
  • 10 new "airspace" GCW score regions/categories have been added (like Naboo Airspace, Rori Airspace, etc). GCW score contribution made while in atmospheric flight (including factional presence) will apply to the planet's corresponding "airspace" GCW score region/category. Each "airspace" GCW score region/category will contribute the same percentage to the planet's and galaxy's GCW score as a single ground GCW contested region.
  • While in atmospheric flight, the planet map will display in the window title the score of just the "airspace" GCW region/category for that planet.
  • GCW score contribution from factional ship-to-ship PvP kills in atmospheric flight will contribute to the GCW space PvP score category of the space zone corresponding to the planet. For example, factional ship-to-ship PvP kill in atmospheric flight in Tatooine airspace will contribute to the "Tatoo System Player vs Player" GCW score category. Rori airspace will contribute to the Naboo System, and Talus airspace will contribute to the Corellian System.
 
Here is a vid. And yes its everything we asked  for.  All this time it could have been implemented. SOE gets the last word as usual. sigh...

I have this feeling that SWG is going to get a F2p re-release later on.

I can see them touching up the game, wiping everyones progess and opening it as a micro transaction f2p.

If they can somehow manage to get the SW out of the game, then maybe it relaunches.  Otherwise this game is dead forever. 

It does seem like a cruel joke that they would bring something as cool as flying around and killing each other on the planets after this game is scheduled for demolition.  Touche SOE.

Once SWTOR crashes and burns to mediocrity this game will get the green light to go f2p.

We all know the only reason SoE is shutting this down is so LA can soak up every bit of the SW fans into TOR. Once TOR proves itself to be nothing but a normal mmo and not a massive 11+ million sub juggernaught LA will loosen its grip and you will get SWG back

If this is legit, it goes along with my theory that Smed's comments about "shutting down SWG was SOE's idea" don't quite hold water.  Why put money into development of a game that's shutting down.  It just doesn't add up.

So you think SWG has more potential than swtor? lol.  If swtor cant get 11 million subs, how in the hell would SWG?

Or it might be so that the system was developed but not properly tested and now they release it in it's current state as it will not matter the slightest if it is a bugged mess. After all they had been talking about something like this for a while.

This. They are simply throwing their last few customers a bone before the game shuts down.

I didnt say that it had more potential. One of the big reasons SWG is being shut down is so TOR doesnt split the SW fans. Once LA realizes that TOR isnt the money maker they think it is they will allow SWG to keep going because by that point it will have no effect on TORs mediocre numbers.

You still dont make sense, or you're trolling.  SWG was never a symbol of success.  If swtor fails Lucas arts will just make games like force unleashed from here on out, not revive a buggy, outdated failure of a game that is SWG.

Interesting split in the playerbase, 5 people paying for SWG and several million likely to pay for TOR. i'm no fan of TOR but nothing so far has pointed to it getting 'mediocre' numbers.

 

SWG has been clinging on for a while now, TOR may have heralded the end but the root cause of SWG's death has little to do with the new mmo.

SWG is a game that requires very little development and has a steady 50-75k subscriber base. Whats 50k-75k x 14.99 a month? with virtually no dev cost and very little server maint fees? Its steady money in the bank.

Why wouldnt they re-open the game once its proven that TOR wont be affected? Do you really think LA is going to sink millions in a Force unleashed type mmo after both SWG and TOR prove that a starwars game will not be as popular as WoW? no way!

You think all of those people will return?  I dont, not with so many good options coming up.  If swtor is not your thing there is GW2 on the horizon.  There are others like the secrect world as well.  SWG cant compete with current mmo's, much less the ones coming soon.  I get it, youre upset that it will be gone forever, and as a fellow gamer I do feel for you.  But wishing that that Lucas Arts will realize thier mistake and abandon the $150 million dollar game they have been helping to develop for the last few years wont make it so, sorry.

Wasn't it Lucas Arts that pulled the plug? I forgot who was developing SWG, but they probably had stuff in development that they were deciding to either put in or not put in. Now that all the pressure is off, they are probably going to try and put everything they can in before the game goes dark.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

WHAT THE HELL?  At first I thought this was all a joke, but then I went and checked the actual update notes.  Are you serious??  This whole time they could have done this.  I would have actually played SWG this whole time if they had added this in a year ago.  And I know I'm not the only one.  SOE really needs to think about all the money they COULD have been making this whole time if they had just listened to us.  Absolutely ridiculous.  But, I'm not resubbing now.  What's the point.  The game is ACTUALLY closing for good.  Not bothering with it now.

SWG is a game that requires very little development and has a steady 50-75k subscriber base.

LOL!

If they can somehow manage to get the SW out of the game, then maybe it relaunches.  Otherwise this game is dead forever. 

It does seem like a cruel joke that they would bring something as cool as flying around and killing each other on the planets after this game is scheduled for demolition.  Touche SOE.

Once SWTOR crashes and burns to mediocrity this game will get the green light to go f2p.

We all know the only reason SoE is shutting this down is so LA can soak up every bit of the SW fans into TOR. Once TOR proves itself to be nothing but a normal mmo and not a massive 11+ million sub juggernaught LA will loosen its grip and you will get SWG back 

So you think SWG has more potentional than swtor? lol.  If swtor cant get 11 million subs, how in the hell would SWG?

I didnt say that it had more potential. One of the big reasons SWG is being shut down is so TOR doesnt split the SW fans. Once LA realizes that TOR isnt the money maker they think it is they will allow SWG to keep going because by that point it will have no effect on TORs mediocre numbers.

Interesting split in the playerbase, 5 people paying for SWG and several million likely to pay for TOR. i'm no fan of TOR but nothing so far has pointed to it getting 'mediocre' numbers.

 

SWG has been clinging on for a while now, TOR may have heralded the end but the root cause of SWG's death has little to do with the new mmo.

I would say that TOR was the whole cause, as if TOR was not in production, LA would have put more attention to SWG, and fixed it up. but instead they just ignored it and focussd on TOR.
