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.

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.

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.

"But for many people it is much more than a game - it is a part of their lives where they have invested huge amounts of time building a community. And that community has been based on a sophisticated, mature game. So now, for them to take an adult-level combat and economics simulation and turn it into a mindless game for 10-year-olds is a violation of that community."

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

the game right before they threw the Housing in, but without half the bugs.

Very nice work guys!

Please, keep it up.
