I have no problem with it.

I love the 5m stacks because of the fact I would have houses full of stuff to track otherwise.
I also like the group XP change.
other than that I don't have strong feelings on the other changes.

That being said, unless those other things are killing someone's game, I'd say don't waste your time with it, when something else could get attention.
However, if it IS killing someone's game, I'd atleast like to keep these things I mentioned.

Finally, it is your server to run as you wish and I'll deal with whatever is decided, I just know I've done too much grinding to give up on this server and start over on another, so I'm just happy see someone else around. It's been lonely the last couple months.

There is one part of patch 1.3 that I don't really agree on. The new extraction rate of the harvesters. It sure helps with the grinding of the crafting professions, but having medium harvesters with an extraction rate that rivals the old elite harvesters from the NGE is a bit to much. Especially considering that medium harvesters are taking up one lot.

I am not sure by how much the factory times were reduced. I haven't used factories that much, so I can't really comment on that. Just like I can't really comment on the reduced XP penalty for groups. Being online in the off-hours of this server means I don't group much, if at all.

I don't mind the stack size of resources. As item storage in a building is limited, this will help the ones that have a crafting character and do the resource gathering themselves. To add, should someone want to start some kind of "mining operation" to supply crafters on the server, it will help as well.

But my main point for choosing this server is that is not an "easy-mode" server like so many out there; I mean with supper buffed XP rates, dramatically fast shuttle times and ludicrous extraction rates on the harvesters.

I think that if the extraction rates on harvesters are reset, there shouldn't be to many issues left. It may take more time to get the harvesters produce enough resources, but it will also make the sense of achievement larger.

Again, to make a calculated decision, the reduced timers and XP penalty numbers are to be known as well.

So here's the deal...

You guys are the players. I want to do what you want. I don't feel strongly about it (patch 1.3) either way.

With that said, running and maintaining the server is a lot of work. Coding, by itself, it VERY time consuming. I enjoy doing it. NO one has really been on in forever. I almost just shutdown the hosting, and I was absent as everytime I came by no one was around. Forums were virtually empty. I checked.


But, for months, as TARL said, no one was on.

So you cant expect a server to stay running, and take care of issues as these need to be addressed when no one plays. With that also said, I understand this is a game, and real life gets in the way. It does for me too! So I dont expect you to be on all the time. But logging in once a week isnt a hard thing to do.


So... I have heard 3 things about patch 3 which people were posting about:

1) I like it
2) I like most of it except extraction rates
3) I dont care.


What you guys (players) need to understand about a EMU server is this:

We/I dedicate our/my time, to your enjoyment. Sure we enjoy working on it for you, but I am not going to make any changes because one person who hasnt played for months decides they dislike something.

We also dedicate money. almost 85 bucks a month! Yea. Guess how many donations I received? 1. Guess how many complains and/or suggestions? I cant even count. If I am away for a week, someone says so in shoutbox. That needs to stop.


No offense intended! I dont care about the money. But these statements in Shoutbox about me, should stop. I put my time and money into running YOU a server. :) And I do it because i enjoy it.


Also, with that, I want to do what you guys collectively want. AND.. AND.. if you are going to play I will be happy to put the work in to make it how you like. But, you arent even together on what you want.



So, I am not changing anything right now.

You guys get together on the forums or discord, and figure out exactly what you want, and I will make the changes. You are all over the place in your response, which I expected. I cant code an entire server for one person or 3 opinions. I can make it how I like, but I am sure that will piss some of you off (cause I wouldnt change any of it.). Thats what the other EMUs do, and players come and go. I may end up just not asking anymore and coding it how I see fit. But no one has even been on, so no, I havent even looked at it, because no one has played, logged in, or posted on forums much at all.

If you come back with a statement together of what you like, I will make the change. If not, Patch 1.3 will stay.


So, I make you this vow. If players play, I will be here, coding, fixing, responding, etc.

If you guys leave for months at a time, it may take a while to come back. I lvoe running the server and thats why i kept it up. Lets make this server great guys.

Vote everyday for us, and let me know what you guys want about Patch 1.3. Vote and whatever the results are in a couple days, is what i will do with the code.

I am also moving the server over to ESXi so there will be some downtime (yea its going to be easier to manage!)

Please be patient during downtime!

Thanks guys and no one get upset. YOu guys rock. Lets make SWG Resurrection awesome!

As I said in my post I am fine with leaving parts/changing parts. If I could change my vote I would. I voted to leave as is so that if no one else REALLY cared, it would save you the bother of messing with it. I have stated the parts I'd like to keep, if you want to consider my vote changed from leave it alone to leave/change parts, that is fine, I can't change the vote on here that I can see.

On a side note, if there is a chance you will shut the server down, please let us know. I'd hate to continue putting time into the game if that is the case. I chose this server because the setup you have matched closest to how I wanted to play and I really don't want to start over elsewhere. Aside from my vacation week I HAVE been playing the game since joining the server back in march. I might not always been online, but that has been due to having nothing spawned I needed to sample, no one on to sell things to, and literally logging onto the forum everyday and seeing no one or nothing. My kids are out of school for the summer so my hours are weird and less because of that, I am also working 6 nights a week because of the summer. But I know I was ingame for atleast a month of that time without seeing a single person.
I just want you to know that there has been someone here not always, but there is someone who wants this server to be here, and wants people to come play here, I'd love to know why everyone disappeared, I have started crafting (I HATE CRAFTING) just to fill the gap that has been created by the armorsmiths and weaponsmiths disappearing. I have spent more time grinding professions I don't want to play just because I wanted there to be something here incase some DID log in to play but had nothing but started weapons to play with.....

I'll stop now, sorry for the wall of text, I love this game. Have put all my free time into it (my wife and kids don't give me much free time). And just would hate to see this server go down.

Recap my vote ... leave the 5m stacks, leave group xp changes. Kill the rest if that's what people want.
If the only issue is with harvesters extraction then just do that.

I have tried not to bother you with things, I figured you have enough going on with whatever you're working on and that you have a life. Just trying not to be a pain in the ass. I'll ask no requests and keep my opinions to myself unless asked (because that's how I am, not because of anything said) so there it is.

Thank you for your time and I appreciate everything you do and LOVE this server.

Reset the harvester extraction rates to default. Everything else about 1.3 can stay, which seems to be general consensus right now. Thank you.
