  1. AFK Spam Policy: The rule has been that you can spam in spatial chat once every 60 seconds, however with multiple people doing that it makes conversation very difficult. In the interest of promoting socialization and community for everyone we are updating our policy. From now on while you can still say/shout/yell your advertisements in spatial every 60 seconds you will need to have your AFK tag active. This shift is being done so those that wish to converse with others have the option to not see the spam flooding their chat box. How to active the AFK tag: There are two ways to accomplish this. The first is simple, just type /afk and the AFK tag will appear over your head. The 2nd way to do this is to go into Options and select the AFK tab on the left side. From there you will check the “Auto AFK Enabled” box (as shown here) and set your Auto AFK time to 1 or 2 so shortly after starting your macro if you do not move your mouse your AFK tag will go up. How to stop seeing AFK chat: Go to Options and select the chat tab on the left side, you will then see the option that says “show chat from afk players”, uncheck that box and click “OK” at the bottom (as seen here). Now you will no longer see spatial chat from players that are AFK. AFK Farming - We wish to give a more clear outline of our AFK farming policy so everyone is clear on what is and is not allowed Not Allowed - AFK Farming quest areas without an invite join/macro AFK Farming the DWB AFK Farming of NPCs that are the sole NPC to drop an item such as DNA (such as the Reek and Nexu) The use of 3rd party programs (Including those on a keyboard or mouse) to circumvent the macro dumps in the areas they are active. Having characters from multiple accounts on follow and assisting with combat in the DWB. Each ATK player can only have their own toons following them. The use of any programs or built in capability from a gaming mouse or keyboard that allows you to do something AFK that you cannot do with normal ingame function, features, or mechanics. Allowed: AFK Farming non quest NPCs AFK Farming in quest areas with an invite/join macro running Having characters from your account following behind your ATK character to assist in combat in the DWB Farming NPCs that are the sole NPC to drop an item while ATK Setting up a Tell invite macro: To set up a macro you will go to your commands tab either from the menu button at the bottom right side of your screen or by pushing ; if you have not changed your keybinds. You will the select the macro tab at the top of the pop up window. From there you will select “new” at the bottom of the window and copy and past or write the macro into that box. Lastly you will select an icon for your macro and click ok as show in these screenshots. "New" to open Macro creation box Creating Macro /alias ll /invite invite2 /ui action startChatReply; /ui action chatCursorHome; /ui action chatCursorRight; /ui action chatDelete; /ui action chatDelete; /ui action chatEnter; /tell [your name] Auto Invite is running....; /pause 8; /macro invite2; Now all anyone has to do is send you a tell and you will auto target them and send them a group invite. You must be the group leader in order to do this. The /tell in the 3rd to last line sends yourself a message so you don't end up spamming the last person you sent an invite to. You may also want to do a seperate macro that loops every 60-90 seconds to let people know you are running and invite macro /say Please just /tell Krymsun for an invite to group if you need these NPCs to complete your quest. Thanks!; /pause 80; /macro sendtell; You can also run a join macro so they can invite you to group. The macro for that would look something like this: /join; /pause 120; /disband; /macro join; Adding the disband command is good because sometimes people forget and then others cannot join if they need the NPCs for a quest. You should also run a macro letting people know they can invite you. Lastly there is the invite macro, this is the least effective as it can be hard to figure out where to stand. This macro would look something like this: /target; /pause 1; /invite; /pause 5; /ui action untarget; /pause 1; /macro invite; Again I would run a seperate macro or combine a /say command in this macro to let players know that an invite macro is running. This works best is there is a certain point your character can face and tell them to stand at. Otherwise advise players to stand directly on top of or infront of you for an invite. Thank you for taking the time to re-familiarize yourself with our in-game rules. As always, May the force be with you. SWG:Legends Staff View the full article

  5. Dear Legends, It has come to our attention that some players are circumventing the patching service on the launcher by playing with the current version number. This will leave both your game, ILM and Launcher out of date and most importantly missing critical launcher updates to fix issues that you might actually be having. Please DO NOT instruct players to do so, if you have issues with the launcher please put in a ticket and we will do our best to try and help you get things up and running. 9 times out of 10 we can easily get you up and running as it seems to be install issues mostly. (Not being put into the correct folders etc..). For the users that have circumvented the system. In the coming days we will be implementing ways of catching your launcher and reverting you back to our download page with no chance of diverting this until done correctly. Using the most updated version of the launcher is critical to ensure you have a smoother experience of the game and reduces the chance of any critical issues you may experience. May the force be with you, SWG:Legends Staff View the full article

  8. *Comm-message Downloaded** The times ahead are turbulent for you adventurers. Many inhabitants of the Galaxy are partaking in Empire & Remembrance Day celebrations yet a dangerous type of operation is awaiting your direct presence. The city of Restuss has been the scene for many years of massive bloody battles but yet it remains a contested region of Rori neither under Imperial or Rebel control, that is until now! All special forces are being redirected to the ruined city of Restuss. Starting on Friday July 20th at 6PM BST UK/1PM EST USA/10AM PST USA You will have 24 hours to fight for planetary control of the city of Restuss. The zone will be set to 50% to start the event on a equal playing field. You can monitor the control percentages of the Restuss PvP zone by pressing “V” and glancing at the transparent factional insignia covering the city of Restuss. (See screenshot below) The faction that has the highest overall % of overall zone control of the region at the event end time will be victorious. During the event period of 24 hours, supply drops will be smuggled into Restuss by the Cobral family. The faction that successfully defends the supply crates for FIVE minutes without any enemy encounters will receive the contents of the supply drop which includes Restuss commendations & other goodies. The first supply drop will be arriving on Friday July 20 at 7PM BST/2PM EST/11AM PST (Australian time is Sat. July 21 at 4am AEST) after the first delivery in-game announcements will be made 10 minutes before the next supply drops arrives. At the event ending period (Saturday July 21st 11PM BST/6PM EST/3PM PST/8AM AEST Sunday) The winning faction will be announced in-game and all special forces personnel of that faction will be required to meet at the Hand Spawn (/Waypoint 5290 5740) where Princess Leia or Darth Vader will be on scene to commend you for your efforts towards the Galactic Civil War. ...Wait, that’s not it. After the event on the ground has ended It’s time to prepare your cockpit as you prepare to launch to hyperspace and participate in a huge PvP space battle. More details coming soon!

    Cav's "Gonna Get You Laid" Recipes

    Miserable Bastard This is a super dope cocktail and you will drink too many of them, guaranteed. It's very tiki-bar in flavor and a good summer drink despite how thick it is. Ingredient Cost: ~$45.00 - $60.00 (depending on what size bottles you buy) Time to Cook: ~15 minutes Ingredients Meyer's Dark Rum Falernum (a Caribbean liquer, I like a brand called "Velvet Falernum") Angostura Bitters Limes Directions Fill a glass with ice; Fill the glass 3/4 way rum (yes, 3/4 rum); Add a few dashes of bitters; Squeeze about a quarter of a lime into it; and Shake or stir to fully mix. Other Stuffs None. Bon appetito!
  10. This post is the start of a new weekly tradition for... me. As most of you are, I'm sure, completely unaware, I loves to cook. A lots. In fact, if it wasn't for my smokin' culinary and wine pairing skills I'd probably get it on with the ladies a lot less. I mean yeah, I'm funny, attractive, super out going, and always have the best "gotta look over your shoulder first" type jokes, but some times you just really need to seal the deal to get the goods. Now, my extremely sexist and chauvinistic intro aside, I present to you the best recipes I've come across amid my frolicking...

    The Health & Fitness Thread

    Just figured I'd do a quick report here. Have been keeping up on my lifting big time and I should have a new deadlift photo this Thursday with an extra 45 lbs plate on each side. Plus it's on a hex bar. So in six months I've come up from 315 lbs to 410 lbs! No straps either, all real grip strength. Squats have been a struggle for me. I end up working alone fairly frequently and fidget my stance a lot once I have the weight on me so I was using the smith machine as a balance crutch. Have since stopped that and am truly squatting 320 lbs with good form. I did have to reset my weight a bit on squats to get back to basics on form. I've gotten my bench 1RM up to 270. Goal is 300 lbs. I should have it in 2-3 months. Overall, I've gotten strong as fuck and am easily in the best shape of my life at 33 1/2 years old. I only started at the end of October, last year, so it's never too late to start lifting. Not only that, but the effect it's had on me mentally has been staggering. I've always been a confident (cocky) guy but when you have the physical size to back that shit up you sort of just control the area you exist in and everyone notices it. I've found it pretty empowering, actually. In fact, a month or two ago I very nearly got into a bar fight after a bunch of college bros were harassing my wife and her friends while I was in the john. I came back and they told me what happened. The bros were up in the lobby area, five of'em, and as I approached they instantly knew something was up. I chastised and berated their behavior. Told'em to GTFO and waited for the inevitable fisticuffs, going through every possibility of how this fight could go down, clutching the knife in my pocket and then... everyone of them backed down and were begging me to forgive them. ALL OF THEM. I was taken aback by it because of the shock. One bro even said, "C'mon dude, this guy could tear all of us in half." No fight was had, they all apologized to me, and left when I told them to. That was worth every drop of gym sweat and some more. Get in there and pick heavy shit up. It'll change so much more than just your body, I promise. I'll help anyone get started. PM here or on Discord.

    The Health & Fitness Thread

    So I figured I'd start this thread to see if anyone else was/is in a similar predicament or is just interested in some basic fitness. Three weeks ago I finally got the gym membership I've been meaning to get for the past three years and thank fuck I did. Whence I last got out of the Army my fighting weight was right around 210. After I got out I kept up with weight training pretty hard for the first year and probably bulked up another five to seven pounds so somewhere around 215 is probably what I should weigh. Fast forward to last Halloween. Saw some pictures of myself of last Halloween that a friend threw up on Facebook a month ago and was basically horrified at my appearance. Had a physical a few weeks ago and I tipped the scale at 249.5. And, TBPFH, I've pretty much felt like shit for about three years now. Three or four headaches per week, pretty sedentary lifestyle, ate whatever the fuck, drank, smoked cigars, et cetera. I did not feel particularly good or energetic. Never got tested for it but I'm sure I was probably on the path to diabetes if I let it go until I was 40. So, I can't say I radically altered my lifestyle but changes need to be made. I'm just starting my fourth week at the gym. I decided that my first two months were going to be nothing but boring ass cardio. I actually don't mind cardio. I started out doing thirty minutes on the eliptical and I've progressed to forty-five minutes on the elliptical at the maximum resistance level. Today I'm going to start something new and do twenty minutes of running on the treadmill and thirty on the elliptical. Last week I introduced a fully loaded load bearing vest to my elliptical workout. Shit is heavy. I have six twenty-round mags of 7.62NATO, IFAK, fully loaded camelbak, and some other miscellaneous shit in there likes binos, compass, et cetera. The nice thing is that on the elliptical it's pretty bearable. I'm going to do my first two weeks on the treadmill sans LBV. Eventually I'll transition to my fully loaded plate carrier. On the diet side, I cut back on booze and just eat a lot healthier during the day. Lots more vegetables, obviously. At work I keep bell peppers, avocados, and some fruit on hand. I eat everything raw but only because I'm just too lazy to cook vegetables at work. I drink a shitload of those Naked fruit/veggie smoothies. At least two glasses per day. I pretty much just constantly eat at work now. Almost every hour I eat something. An apple, a pepper, a banana, an avocado, yogurt, and so on and so forth. For dinner I still pretty much eat whatever I want. I've cut out sweets almost entirely. In fact, until Valentine's dinner I had gone three weeks without eating any candy whatsoever. On V-Day I had two truffles and the wife and I split a beer float. But, the best thing to come out of all this is that with the exercise came plainly feeling better, more energy, and, most importantly, I can't eat nearly as much in one sitting. I fill up much more quickly. I never have room for seconds. I have a personal rule to never eat past 2100 unless I plan on staying up pretty late. Everything past 2100 is protein. Anyways, I've dropped an even ten pounds in three weeks. Today marks the start of week four. The most important thing about all of this is that I make my workout my top priority. My wife is also working out with me but often lets excuses get in the way of making it to the gym. For me, doesn't matter what time it is, how tired I am, how much sleep I'm worried about getting, I'll gladly be late to anything, so long as I get my workout in. I push my wife HARD and she started out in way better shape than I did. We only work out maybe a third of the time together. And I work six days a week, every week, and I take no days off from the gym though I go easy on Sunday and do the entire workout on the elliptical. One of the most helpful things in all of this is that my gym is close. Like, two blocks away close. Makes it very easy. If it were warmer I'd walk there. Come the end of week eight I plan to work in some calisthenics and weight training. I'd like to incorporate my rifle into all of this but I get enough weird looks with just the LBV on. Dorkuses in Minnesota would probably shit themselves if they saw me walk in with a rifle and I live in an area where I probably couldn't even workout with one outside when it gets warmer which is frustrating. I've found that the more military shit I can incorporate into it the higher my interest and motivation gets. I've started doing rifle drills at home post-workout So, I know this got pretty rambly and disjointed but if anyone else out there is looking to get started on getting back into decent shape Snap Fitness has an intro price of $9 for the first month. After that it's $20 or $30 or something. Getting back into it has been surprisingly easy and I'm way ready to be back in fighting shape.

    Stopping By

    Yeah, both look great. I have no problem pre-ordering those two. Anthem, OTOH... I need some reviews before I'm willing to throw anymore money at Bioware. Are you on our Discord btw? If not here's the invite link: http://discord.me/47lg
  14. I'm currently obsessed with Faith No More's "Angel Dust" album. Specifically "Everything's Ruined," "A Small Victory," and "Crack Hitler." To answer your next question, yes, "Crack Hitler" is a song about a crack head who thinks he's Hitler. Genius. Jim Martin Station!

    Hey, pretty good. With all of the E3 news we're super stoked for Fallout 76, Division 2, and Anthem. Especially Fallout 76, though. We're going to push into that pretty hard.
