The Darjani SWGE Galaxy shall provide a premium Star Wars Galaxies experience that039s second to none.Let our specifications speak for usContent of this page:1. Technical background2. Objectives3. Design4. Management5. History1. Technical backgroundExisting Game Server Cluster built on server machines with 2 and 4 Intel Xeon QuadCore processors, 16-32GB RAM, SAS HDD039s and premium hardware.Server Cluster on Unlimited Bandwidth connected directly to the internet backbone, placed at the best and most reliable server hosting company of the region, which hosts servers for all the major telecom companies in the area.Professional IT and server management staff, 24/7 availability.2. ObjectivesquotQuality before Quantityquot - We aim to create a galaxy where you can play the game how you want, when you want, without downtimes, technical issues and as bugfree as it can be. Stable gameplay is the most important thing for everyone to be able to enjoy the game.The Darjani Galaxy is here to stay, we wont disappear, or pull the plug and will remain to keep life in the galaxy.We place a strong emphasis on PvP, by creating more perma overt special classes, creating goals, a PvP reward system, events for PvP and finally special features. We want to promote Role Play by creating several events per week. These events will be created and run by a Game Master Team led by a veteran Lead GM with many years of experience.We will create a reward system that will reward long term dedicated players.We039d like to integrate new features, derived from the live version of the game to make your experience the fullest. These features are items, visuals, dungeons, quests.We plan to enhance the game with new features and develop our own storyline which will eventually reach the New Republic era in years.We want to add unique features designed by us to the game. We do not want to change the pre-CU skills and professions, or core mechanics. We may tweak professions very carefully to make them all viable if it039s necessary. We039re open to apply modifications that enhance visuals, or performance for our playerbase.We will accept donations after the game server goes live. We strongly believe that it would be fraud and incorrent to accept donations, before there is a fully playable game and a live game server cluster. Its impossible to run a quality game server on donations and we have the resources to sponsor it. Donation will be used to upgrade our server cluster and if we recieve a considerable amount we might be able to hire and pay professional staff members.3. DesignThere are a few things we feel that needs to be changed from how it worked in the original game. One of these, probably the most touchy subject when it comes to Star Wars Galaxies which is Jedi.We plan to create a hybrid Jedi Unlock System, by combinating the Hologrind and Village unlock systems, to deliver the full excitement and experience to those who commit themselves to reach this long term goal. In our design the requirements are rather timelocked, than being a long, harsh boring grind. Jedi will become more powerfull through our revamped FRS system, but more power will come with more restrictions. There will be numerous new features of being a jedi, like the master-padawan relationship.As an alternative to jedi we plan to develop 5 new Beta Classes(Hero Classes), Imperial Guard, Nightsister, Spec Force, Mandalorian and Echani Elite. These quotclassesquot will be much like jedi was in pre-CU, always overt, having their own ranking systems, own special weapons. To balance these with the regular character class, the Beta Class characters wont be able to learn any Medic, Artisan, or Entertainer based skills.We will try to create new content and as well revamp some of the old content to make the game even more interesting and be worth playing. These revamps and new content will include dungeons, new dungeons, quests, crafting, economy related things.Before impementing any of these changes we will make sure most of our players like them.For detailed design plans please visit our website.4. ManagementProfessionalism is the most important word here. Our staff is voluntery, we work on the server in our freetime, but we only enjoy it if we do it professionally.The Darjani Team has IT professionals, game developers, programmers, communitaction scientists and most of us are close, or over 30. As we love the game wed run this purely for our own entertainment, if we deliver a fun experience for others, its just a big bonus.We are working closely with the SWGEmu Developers to make sure of stability, reliability and quality.We want to build a friendly, mature community for casual, hardcore or any type of players, who want to have fun. Hostile, spitefull attitude and trolling wont be out of control in-game, or on our forums.We WILL ban cheaters and hackers for life without exception.There wont be favoritism, every player will have to earn their experience points, items, skills and fame for themselves. If we ever catch any of the staff members breaking this rule, he or she would be removed from his powers and duties immediately.Our Community Service Representant Team will help players with in-game, techinal problems, handle violation reports and tickets.Most of the changes and new features will be up to our community to decide if they want them, or not. We will post polls about nearly every single major issues and our community will have a final saying in our decisions.Polls will be posted regularly by our staff on our community forums and we want you to get involved in our decisions which shape our galaxy.5. HistoryThe Darjani name comes from LucasArts and Star Wars Galaxies. You can find the Darjani Plains in the South-West region of Dantooine. Where the two Taikaha rivers lean close to each other is where a guild of veteran SWG players formed the ancient city of Darjani. It was the first player city on the Starsider Galaxy back in 2003. Darjani was chosen as one of the 10 most beautiful player cities in the game. The city has named squares and roads and still stands, who knows for how much longer.The founders of the Darjani SWGE Galaxy were citizens and founders of the player city Darjani. In our initial plans, we wanted to create and run a private invite-only Star Wars Galaxes Emulator. Then in a few months, we decided to open up for anyone who shares our one and only online dream, to play the original Star Wars Galaxies again. Our public website launched in 2006.Many of our unique design ideas became popular and are often repeated all over in the SWGEmu communities.During the last few years we have built good relationship with the SWGEmu Developers and we support them with any resources we can offer.
