Dev Diary

Dev Diary -


The Star Wars Galaxies official site has been updated with a Dev Diary by SWG Designer Michael "Fiasco" Farone, where he talks about what he's done on Star Wars Galaxies and what he’s been working on lately.

"Please state your name and profession for the record."

"Yes, I'm Michael Farone. I'm one of the designers on Star Wars Galaxies."

"Thank you. And how did you come to be a designer on Star Wars Galaxies, Mr. Farone?"

"Well, I had been working as a designer on Ultima Online. This was during development for the Age of Shadows expansion for UO. A friend, who was one of the lead designers on SWG at the time, had been trying to talk me into joining their team. I enjoyed working on UO, but at the same time it was the only game I had ever worked on at that point. The idea of expanding my horizons seemed like a good one. So I took my friend's advice and joined the SWG team. Strangely enough, shortly after, my friend was offered a position on UO as a producer, so we basically traded projects. Funny the way things turn out sometimes."

"That will do. Please describe your duties on SWG? And please remember that you are under oath. "

"I am? Hmm…very well. I've had any number of different tasks. Such as building cities and other world locations, creating and placing NPCs and spawners, writing conversations, creating quests and events, designing and implementing content tools, and developing various other things that I've completely repressed over the years.
