New swg server with the best of pre cu and nge restoration 3 coming soon.

I didn't see any posts on here about it so I thought I would share, since this server coming out really makes me excited. It will launch may 28. It  has all the good stuff from pre cu like crafting matters vs it's meaningless in nge, has jtl, has decay, has all the skill boxes of pre cu, though they are different, and most importantly jedi are behind a secret unlock that's really hard to do, and they go ghost if they die with losing their light saber. It also has the content of nge though, best of both worlds if you ask me, can't wait my self 😁

    I've been trying to get in but so far every time I click "launch" it does nothing.

    Edit:  I followed advice in a forum post on their site and fixed the problem.

    This SWGR3 server is so much fun. Highly populated, single server.  The best of SWG content, imho.  Definitely recommended. No, you don't need to own a copy of SWG. THIS is what you should be playing in 2021. Cheers.

    They're not exactly private servers, but EMU's and all you'd need to do is go to the emu of your choice's homepage and follow the directions on that page.

    The main one's I know are:
    - SWG Emu - pre-CU.  The original ground game is there, but I don't think they're going to expand on it.

    - SWG Legends - NGE, very active and the site's dev's have added a bunch of content from art to a whole new expansion to the game.  Has the space game and all the original expansions.

    - SWG Restoration - which is billed as the best of both the old version and NGE with the link up in Theodwulf's post.

    SWG (pre-cu) - AoC (pre-f2p) - PotBS (pre-boarder) - DDO - LotRO (pre-f2p) - STO (pre-f2p) - GnH (beta tester) - SWTOR - Neverwinter

    I am giving the game a try but up to now it hasn't engaged much of my interest.  Combat is glacially slow but maybe (hopefully!) it improves.  It's very off-putting as it stands though.

    Are you talking about the Restoration emu?  If so I agree. 

    I can't figure out if I'm doing something wrong not being able to fire my weapon from my mouse or if it was actually like that way back and I've just forgotten that part.

    Only being able to fire from the hotbar button with it's cool down (and yes I did link it to my mouse key, but you still wait for the cool down) is slow.  Could have sworn you could shoot base shots in between the cool downs back during live.

    Of the 2 I think I'll be sticking to Legends as it's more fast paced and you can shoot between the cool downs so you're not just standing there letting someone beat on you.

    I watched a couple of vids on the Resto 3 server and it looks really dated....It reminded me of combat from 2002.....

    It's strange that 2 games based off the same game and engine can play (combat) so differently.

    SWG: Legends plays like a modern shooter (1 mouse click = 1 shot) with extra abilities to fire from the hotbar and Restorations 3 seems to have removed the 1 click = 1 shot part and just has the hotbar abilities.

    I liked the fact that R3 has the old professions boxes (although the grind to fill them up memory has come back.  :smiley:  )   Also it's nice not seeing all the AFKer's like you do in Legends, but game play-wise.  Legends is the way to go, especially if you want space combat.

    Oh, thanks for the head's up.  I shall check out SWG:Legends asap.  :)

    I managed to get a used copy of Star Wars Galaxies: The Complete Online Adventures really cheap so I'm keeping my hopes up it will get me onto the Legends server.  :)
