I miss the Jump to light speed, You know what i am talking about if you played it... I like the fact that you had free roam in space where you could do anything you want, Had more then a hand full of ships to pick from !!Tie Fighter!! , plus the space PvP, The battles were sweet... You could fly it your self and not a point and click. If a enemy shot out the engine's you would had to grab a repair kit while the room on fire and lights are turning on, run to the room where the engine's would be sitting, repair then try to get out while you still can, unless you had more then one friend with you... Then that made it more fun. I hope bring something back from JTLS.

Yep I know exactly how you feel. I am relatively satisfied with ground combat in swtor, but the space combat is awful. Bioware announced some major space project and it got me excited, but it looks like its just new railed space missions which I will never play.

I suspect Bioware will come up with some retarded achievement that can only be unlocked through space combat, forcing the rest of us who hate it to go through it. Similar to them forcing players to play both factions to unlock HK51. Also an fyi to Bioware... forcing players to perform tasks that are not fun defeats the purpose of playing a video game. Challenge is one thing, but wasting players time is just tedious/boring, not challenging.

If they could release a real space expansion I would be swtor for next 5+ years with paid subscription, but what is most likely going to happen is I will be leaving for Planetside 2. I hope it doesn't come to that, but that is for Bioware/EA to decide.

In summary I want
1. Free Flight
2. Space PvP
3. Player owned space stations/Guild owned
4. Allow party members to control ship turrets

But it will never happen...


Also please do not take this as a rant against swtor, I really do like the game. My major complaint is in regards to space combat. And yes I am willing to pay for expansion(s) and subscription. I appreciate the fact that new content costs money to develop.

Your right.... I think it be great to get it back.. Funny thing take less stress on the computer then it would for you do ground combat. Stations I don't know if that would work, but maybe a Guild Ship. Plus give us more ships to pick from.

Chat bubbles first then we can talk about the future...

JK (kinda), but seriously
I hear that SWGEMU is currently working on JTL upgrade, maybe you can experience that again soon.

Also Eve is supposed to be good for space stuff.

I miss atmospheric flight the most. Near the last few months we were able to fly just above player cities / most planets in general. Hell, you could kill players from your ship in PvP. I miss my Rebel Ace / Freelancer pilot skill...and all my ships. NK's ship ftw also

I still have dreams about JTL sinse Dec 15....I miss that part of SWG just as much as its crafting...

I still own my old X-Wing and Tie Fighter CD roms..but I'm afraid my laptop will mess em up haha / they are so old by now the blocky graphics might make it hard to see even :P .

I just miss customizing my many ships...I loved my black trimmed Arc-170 Starfighter, the ship I looted off of NK-Necrosis, that huge mining ship, my Y-Wing, the one pirate / freelancer fighter I had, Adv X-Wing, Luxury Yatch to escape BH's, and many more...

but just flying across a planet's surfice in my starfighters...flying over large cities, player or already made...I just miss that feeling...especially when I was defending the Death Star II's shield generator on Endor during the last day of SWG on Europe-Farstar....hell I even miss the people I constantly fought against in Restuss...I miss SWG

I'm with you on that Bigryuubi. I try to play the space game, but I just can't after Jump to Light Speed.

SWGEmu is looking good, it seems like there are alot of players. Perhaps the same as an average swtor server.

I used to play on the Ultima Online free servers alot, much more than I ever did on the paid servers. If the SWG Emu team does get JTL working I will definitely be going to check it out. Since swtor will be going free to play I could just cancel my subscription and play both for free. When I want good space combat I can go to SWG.

Until then I will still be hopeful that Bioware will rip out their space arcade game and put in a real space engine.
I spent more than a year in SWG becoming force sensitive and building my Jedi character. Jedis were few and far between as it was not a starting class. One day I logged in to find most players had converted to Jedi overnight. I haven't logged in since.

that sounds like the worst idea ever. Talk about unbalaneced PVP

I miss J2LS as well, looked at the SWGEMU and it looks like you have to have the original CDs...sadly mine are long gone.

Remember, that J2LS was a full paid expansion (when it was first released) perhaps we could hope for something similar here...but alas, i think F2P will just kill it all off.
