Art of the Genre

Yesterday was my birthday, so I was out an about and not roving the lonely plains of Corellia on my swoop.  Still, thoughts of SWG did creep into my mind, like while watching Star Trek: Beyond and wondering when JTLS was coming out, especially since Chassis Dealers no seem operational.  I’m not holding my breath, though, as I know things in the EMU move glacially even with the best efforts and intentions.  That is just how a fan run enterprise built on hardcore hobby lovers is, and I applaud them for it.

I had a Y-Wing once, a long time ago, and it was the hottest looking thing I ever put my hands on… well, other than Huff Darklighter’s niece…’ Jericho Knox

How many of you all out there did JTLS?  I thought the space graphics were pretty fantastic, and although I got jumbled up on missions (especially when I played non-rebel) it was pretty fun.  Doing the Y-Wing was cool because you could go ‘up’ with someone and play together.  Always thought that was a cool effect.

The possibility of this expansion launching at some point might be while as those PHNBs are mining all the time, like folks are stocking up innumerable resources for building ships.  I, on the other hand, am just trying to make a damn weapon, but thus far no real luck.  I’ve been on the hunt for Irolunn Reactive Gas which I guess is like blood diamonds or something in this game.  Right now I’m running an odds contest in my head about which I’ll find first, the gas or a large bed.  Vegas is currently favoring the gas.
