SWGEmu Big Update 11/21/2007

Hey Everyone.

First and foremost I want to apologize for the few updates over the last couple months. We have all been rather busy with real life issues but have still found time to continue working on the server. That being said, many of the lingering crash issues have been fixed and the core is stable as it has ever been.

Now, A little while ago I said there was big news coming for this project and rightfully so, there is.

We have discussed this very thoroughly and have come to this conclusion.

SWGEmu will be going partially open-source in the near future.

It will not be the same mess that was Core1.

The way we have decided to do it is this.

SWGEmu is made up of 2 parts. Engine3 and Core3.

Engine3 will remain closed source, but available for download as a static library included with Core3, as it is the backbone and framework for the server that we guard very carefully, as it is being used for other projects as well.

Core3, which is the SWG framework will be made open source and freely available to be checked out by the public.

With it being open source, we hope to gain new developers with new insight on how to do things, also it will allow this project to get completed faster than if it was just us 4.

Source code written for Core3 by the public will be submitted through our submission platform (probably trac), at which point we will test it on a private server and if it remains stable enough, we will commit it to the public svn.

Developers who contribute alot of their time and code will be welcomed onto the team and given the ability to commit code directly to the svn themselves.
(After passing certain quality/control tests from our current team of course)

We are currently accepting resumes from prospective developers who wish to join the team right away. Please forum PM them to Me, Oru, TheAnswer, Ramsey and Seaseme.

Over the past few months we have noticed the intensity that once existed for SWG has dwindled to a near halt. We feel that this course of action will lead to the survival and continued success of the first and best Pre-Combat Upgrade Star-Wars Galaxies server.

Comments? Suggestions? Requests?

Post them here.

Sounds good! But don't think you have to apologise we understand that you all have actual lives other than the emu and for that we are thankfull that you are putting your spare time into this project! I just wish I new something about programming so that I could help.

Hopefully now, the handful of people who have posted asking if you guys need help with developing core3 will now get the chance.

I like this idea. Hopefully more programmers will be able to contribute in a meaningful way and accelerate the project. I'd also like to see more cooperation between the different projects (sharing info, ideas, learning experiences, maybe some code trades).

I believe project progress and fan interest go hand in hand. There has not been a major addition to the TC since vehicles and interest has been dropping since then.

I'm still very interested in pre-cu, I've been making some advertisement videos for my future chef business... but I've been "depressed" with the lack of visible progress on the emu lately. Let's get this **** movin'!

This is big news, hope it helps the team out. Be careful of ****heads trying to sneak backdoors into the system, of course I don't need to tell you that.
