After seeing the new Star Wars movie recently I had the itch to try SWG again, Many amazing memories and amazing people, some of whom are on these forums. While the SWGEmu is great I always preferred the combat in the NGE so started looking for an NGE emulator. I've been keeping an eye on PSWG for a while but wasn't aware until I started looking into things recently that it's going to be a while before we have a flushed out universe here (which is fine of course, I commend your efforts and I am very excited <3 ).
The only other option seemed to be SWG Reborn/Legends. I looked into things a little bit (reddit hehe) and side from the drama that sadly surrounds that project currently it seems very promising, From what I gather this is because they are using the original SOE source code and server infrastructure.
My questions are:
- Does using original SOE Source code raise copyright/legality issues, Or is it okay as long as it's a non-profit venture?
- Are you guys going to use this too? incorporate elements or use it as reference to speed up the development process? I guess it's an all or nothing kinda thing if legal issues come into it.
The main reasons I ask is that I'm worried to sink time into a project that has drama surrounding it, would rather put time/money into a sure thing, which PSWG seems to be for the NGE. Right now I'm just an impatient sod and the SWG legends server seems almost too good to be true while I wait for PSWG, hence why I'm here.
Thanks, and apologies if these are questions you'd rather not answer, I'm aware you're first and foremost an emulation and the work you're doing is fantastic
