Btw, hurry up! Lol. The more new mmo's I play the more they just suck. Nothing has ever quite replaced Galaxies. The sad fact for me is that nothing ever really will. WoW is fun, I'll give you that. But there's just no sense of community in that game for me, or any other mmo, that compares to what I had with Galaxies.

All the hard work is appreciated, and I'm really looking forward to OR completion. Thanks.

tell me about it ever since swg
swg is the game i judge all new mmo's by and so far they all fail badly in comparison

If I am not mistaken that is the approximate value of the time spent by the devs, from the start until this point, creating SWGEmu's current Test Center code. That is not the number by which SOE created the original game, that's unknown.

I wouldnt be surprised if it costed SOE more than that to originally develop the game. MMO's are generally multimillion dollar projects, and its not unreasonable to hit the 8 digit mark along the way.

Apex_ 02-12-2010 12:12 PM

It would've certainly cost more than that estimate for SOE's original development. The estimate doesn't include content costs for artists, sound design and the like. Those are pretty high-dollar items too :)

The estimate is based on lines of code which does not take into account how many lines of code are in the client that we have installed on our machines to play it as well. That would probably add a few million to the code only side of any guesstimate of the costs for SOE.

And as far as everyone working on the EMU goes, the 7 million estimate doesn't account for the time for all of the packet analysis. It was a long painful wait before they entered the sandbox. And even more painful waiting for it to be available to the rest of us. But it was well worth it.

I think you can make the Personal Extractors. The little BER 3 ones that you get in the Artisan Engineering tree. Not sure though.

The client is no where near a few million lines of code. I'd be surprised if it has more lines than the server to be honest.

The OR stands for "Search". The Search button is a feature of the website.

Been messing around for a few hours now and Im loving it. Reminds totally of
the game right before they threw the Housing in, but without half the bugs.

Very nice work guys!

Please, keep it up.
