SWGEmu is an acronym/abbreviation for Star Wars Galaxies Emulator.
- Star Wars Galaxies is a massively multi-player online role playing game introduced by Sony Online Entertainment in the year 2003. It is the game this project focuses to recreate at a specific milestone referred to as Pre-CU, or Pre-Combat Upgrade. The Combat Upgrade was a set of game changes which radically changed the game-play, to the dislike of thousands of players. These changes led to the founding of this project, in an attempt to “recreate” the game as it was during the Pre-CU era.
- Emulator can be defined as “to try to equal or excel; imitate with effort to equal or surpass” (Dictionary.com). At SWGEmu, Emulator refers to the software the SWGEmu team is building. This Emulator is meant to imitate Sony Online Entertainment’s server-side software, which hosted the galaxies of Star Wars Galaxies during the Pre-CU era.

In this episode I start my new character Rinok which I will be grinding towards Teras Kasi Master first as I believe it to be the most efficient class in the early stages of the game prior to high level buffs/armor/weapons are available. And let’s be honest..meditate/powerboost are the most usefull skills in the game. But first.. kill Peko Peko’s in Naboo for that tasty wooly hide with OQ997 SR600 for armorsmiths.
