Okay, I hope I can make sense explaining this atmospheric flight.

To everyone who asks "Why couldn't they have done this earlier?"

You'll be mad at SoE probably but here we go. "SoE" never made this decision as a business. It isn't smedley saying "see what you can do about atmospheric flight". It was one of the SoE developers who worked on atmospheric flight in his own free time. The developer is Hjal

If Hjal didn't work on this in his free time, we wouldn't have seen this. I don't know why he did that. Perhaps he really loved his job or perhaps he wants to build up a fanbase to start up his own mmo company? Who knows. In any case, SoE didn't do much and swg wouldn't have had it if they didn't employ Hjal.

To people who say they couldn't do this when swg had a large playerbase..

This is true to some extend but not completely. If for exmaple you currently try to do space pvp in the atmosphere of Tatooine, Naboo or for example Restuss on... Starsider, Flurry, Chilastra or Farstar then you will experience a lot of lag and you will probably be unable to do that BUT you will not have that problem on Endor, Yavin IV and Dathomir since they are no build planets. On these planets, new zones don't have to be loaded in so its pretty much lag free, especially when you disable the fog.

However, flying over a highly populated area without making sharp turns and so is simple and very fast. It doesn't lag much and you can see your ship as your new itv, it just doesn't need camps or shuttleports to travel to. You control it yourself.

To me, they could (and should) have done this in stead of gpp, itv, cloud cars, at-at heads, camps, shuttleports, city / guild waypoints as it is much more starwarsy and could have kept a large playerbase however they ignored the possibility and went ahead with all this.

To people (not sure if they are here) who ask about Air - Ground and Ground - Air combat.

This would have been difficult because of a few things:

1) The ships we fly are relatively large in size. If you look at the size of your r2 droid in the air and then look at the same droid on the ground, you'll notice that it is about 1 1/2 to twice the size in your ship then on the ground

2) Balance. Ship guns (and missiles) have a range of 500 mtrs where a ground weapon has just 64 mtr range. You could hang above a certain object (The restuss medcenter is the most favourite target of all pilots) and pound on it to kill your foes without them hitting you.

3) Lag. As I said, lag is a lot higher in populated areas, zones (and houses and buildings) need to be loaded in and cause a lot of rubberbanding when making sharp turns which are necessary in space pvp. If you want to bomb targets on the ground, you are also vulnerable to other ships

So you can not fire from your ship down at targets on the ground?

What a pointless addition. This game really had a terribly poor engine that just could not cope with the FPS nature of what a good SW game should be.

You gotta love that this could be added as the game closes. If this doesn't highlight the entire debacle SOE had with this game, nothing will.

Interesting. I always assumed it was the same size because scale in SWG has always been fairly accurate. This surprises me.

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 

 

Even with Atmo AND especially if it were f2p, I would not go back to SWG. The game went from "fixable" before CU to horrid after NGE. Add f2p and you have a turkey in an item shop.

 

Let's party like it is 1863!

Well, not really pointless. It is a nice addition for space pvp-ers to have something they didn't have yet. You can fly over Yavin and keep in mind that you can crash into the ground or find cover among trees and use a bit of line of sight when you go over a mountain.

It's also a nice extra way to travel. They just shouldn't have done all those fasttravel options. Swg without itv's, gpp's, at-at heads, cloud cars, city & guild waypoints but with atmospheric flight? Yep, that would have been much better.

And it doesn't surprise me at all Tux. I one's saw a heavy loadlifter in space (bug?, about the size of a barc) and compared to my x-wing... well, the loadlifter could fit in my cockpit.

I think this is because of the engine. If the ships were smaller, they would be very hard to hit if they are npc's and next to impossible to hit in pvp.

So...how large do the ships look overhead from a ground player? Do they seem like GIANT X-wings or is it mostly unnoticed?

Well, I have to say it isn't as large as I first made it out to be, mostly because hitting a player from a ship is very hard, this due to weaponspread but after taking a few screenshots, we can say the size of an x-wing is about the size of a small house

And yeah, there is this thread . Okay, my mistake, not 5 times but 1 1/2 - 2 times the size or so.

Thank you again Nas. That's actually not too bad. I'm just thrilled they aren't too tiny or overly massive.

Yeah true me too. I kinda hope that eventually LucasArts (screw Soe lol) will eventually decide to host a sw mmo in the gcw era with whatever company they have in mind or do things in house.. get this feature in from the start which it deserves to be. Grab a lot of data from the current game and make it more sandbox then swg-nge is. Oh well, wishful thinking...

Keep on wishing there bud, ain't never gonna happen in this lifetime.

It's kind of pathetic that a small segment of SWG wants to blame Bioware for the closing of this game. Bioware and TOR have nothing to do with SWG shutting down. SWG has been on life support since 2006. I haven't seen a box in stores for years and most who left will NEVER come back after the way they were treated by SOE. The closing down was inevitable. SOE has no one to blame but themselves.

Another option could have been to make SWG a F2P game...instead of shuting it down.

But you see the common denominator between both SWG and SW:TOR is Lucas Arts Marketing/Finance People.

This change in stance about free flight reminds me of the days when EQ and CoH were in their prime and the developers had this obstinate, almost adversarial stance with their customers about certain changes that were either desired or not wanted by the player base.  It would seem this merely perpetuates my view on developers having major chips on their shoulders in regards to their games and that they rely on us for income, but really don't respect our points of view about their games, their style of content and what constitutes as  fun mechanics versus mechanics that perpetuate the revenue stream.

It might only be "mostly' dead.... But on the other hand would anyone go back if they rebooted pre-soe? (I wouldn't I have to be honest since I left before soe because of the grind involved to be a jedi only to come back to soe and be a jedi. Now I think I couild appreciate the game more if we could roll back time).

lol SWTOR wont crash and burn. it will be running for very long time. if star wars galaxies can run on life support for years then swtor can go least 8 to. this is BIOWARE king of RPG so for whatever your reason to hate you might as well get over it swtor is here to stay alongside games like Guild wars 2 and WoW
