Unread post Awakening 8 Year Anniversary Celebrations!

Greetings Awakening,

Another year has come and gone, our thanks to all the wonderful players that make Awakening the experience it is! Awakening will officially be 8 years old on November 8th! Thank you all, for continuing to be a welcoming and helpful community. To celebrate the 8 years, we have been voyaging through this galaxy as a community, we will be having the following week long festivities (Restart on the Monday the 7th – Restart on the Monday the 14th). The event will include a commemorative set of paintings, XP bonus and a celebratory badge for your characters. The ECs also plan to make themselves available to run some events throughout the week.

This is how the week’s celebrations will work:
  • Two random paintings from the commemorative collection will be awarded to the first toon on your account to login after the scheduled server restart on the 7th of November (this mechanism will be on until the restart on the 14th November).
  • A special commemorative badge will be awarded to each toon logged in between the usual scheduled restarts on the 7th and 14th.
  • All experience gained will be doubled (from the base rate of 1x or 100%) for the period between scheduled restarts, this means that the experience gains will be increased from their current level of 200%, to 3x or 300% of the base value.
  • Numerous live and long-running events will also be held.

Event List: - for event submission requirements refer to the link attached for further details https://swgawakening.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=11151

A successful raid was conducted on the Chiss Hidden Outpost on Talus, however several members of the Rogue Chiss Faction have escaped Imperial detention. The ISB hereby calls on all loyal citizens of the Empire to assist in the acquiring the current location of these Rogue Chiss operatives.

    How it works; on Monday after reset the 1st of 8 Rogue Chiss NPCs will be placed at an undisclosed location in the galaxy. One additional NPC will be spawned every ~12 hours, with the last being spawned around 20:00 on Thursday. Minor prizes are to be awarded to the first player to in-game mail Rogue the waypoint (X, Y and Z coordinates & planet name) for each of the 8 NPCs. The grand prize for the first person to in-game mail Rogue all 8 Waypoints (X, Y and Z coordinates & planet name). There will be a sample of the type of NPC you are looking for on display in a merchant tent in the Rogue Outpost.
    Example of email submission: Sample RogueChiss -993, 6, -5579 Naboo
    Grand prize entry must include all 8 waypoints in one email!

    Prizes will be awarded as follows:
    • A minor prize for the first character to find each NPC (one prize per NPC) and in-game mail Rogue its location
      • Limit of one minor prize per account
      • Minor prizes are your choice of one item from the main room of the Rogue Outpost city hall
    • Grand prize for the first player to find and in-game mail Rogue the correct location of all 8 NPCs (player's choice of a rare vehicle from the list below). Grand prize entry must include all 8 waypoints Congratulations to: Lokla

  • Crafting Event
    The Imperial Department of Mines, Fish, Wildlife & Interstellar Travel requires your assistance in acquiring the following items to assist in the actioning of the Emperor's Arbitrary Rule Enforcement act throughout the galaxy.

    How it works; starting around 08:00 after reset Monday, the Event Coordination staff will announce the first of 8 crafting items* to be created or resources gathered, and to be dropped off at a vendor located in the Rogue Outpost (-1020 -5572 Naboo). The final item must be crafted by the character submitting the entry (component pieces may be made by others, but must still meet any requirements requested). Items will be announced every ~12 hours, until all 8 items have been listed, around 20:00 on Thursday. In order to ensure accuracy and to make things easier to track, only entries dropped off to the vendor will be accepted as valid. The time remaining on the vendor offering will be used to determine who was first to submit each item.

    *Crafting items will only need a skill level of Master Artisan or lower, the name of the item (and or subcomponents) will need to meet that which was specified by the Event Coordination staff, to prevent submission of items produced prior to the event.

    Prizes will be awarded as follows:
    • A minor prize for the first character to submit the item to the vendor (one prize per revealed item).
      • Limit of one minor prize per account to give all people a go at winning prizes
      • Minor prizes are your choice of one item from the main room of the Rogue Outpost city hall.
    • Grand prize for the first player to submit all 8 items to the vendor. Congratulations to Brandis
      • First to get all 8 in will win the grand prize, time remaining on the final of the 8 items to be submitted by any character will be used to determine the fastest.
      • The grand prize is a resource deed as awarded through the veteran rewards system.
    • Every participant who submits all 8 items before the scheduled restart on the 14th will receive an accolade badge on their crafting character.
  • Live Events
    • As always, the Event Coordination staff will be hosting various live events throughout the celebration (as time permits), we hope to see you out there battling the forces of the galaxy!

Reminder, to be eligible to get the anniversary rewards (badge and paintings) you will need to restart all Awakening clients and the launcher if you have both open, after the Monday, November 7th restart. This is so the updated client file downloads to your Awakening install.

All events (their details, rules and/or prizes) for the 8th anniversary celebrations are subject to change, we will endeavour to advise players of any changes should they arise.

All times in this post are using United States Eastern Standard Time.

We, as a staff team would like to thank everyone for helping us make it to 8 years of continuous operation. Whether that be as a player or as a staff member. Without all of you Awakening wouldn't be here 8 years on from its inception. We look forward to whatever may lie before us in the years ahead! We hope to have you all along for the ride with us! May the Force be with you.

Unread post Star Wars Day 2022

Woohoo May 4th approaches, Star Wars Day is almost here again! What does this mean for Awakening? From the server restart on Monday the 2nd of May we will be commencing a weeklong event. We will be giving out two new random May 4th event paintings from the May 4th 2022 collection per account (put in the inventory of the first character to login after restart). The commemorative badge for May 4th 2022 will be awarded to each character that is logged in during the event. Like usual there will also be boosted XP during the event, this will be equal to three (3) times the base server XP rate, keeping in mind we are currently in two (2) times boosted XP mode at the moment.

To be able to see your newly awarded event paintings after the restart, please make sure to close your launcher and SWG client(s) before logging in, once you have done this, run the launcher. This will force the necessary files to be downloaded for you client to use.

There may be additional spontaneous/semi-spontaneous events being held throughout the week. The occurence of these is solely based on the availability of our volunteer Event Coordination team members, Moonbeam and Rogue.


To summarise everything that’s guaranteed to be happening during the week:
  • Two new event paintings per account (put in the inventory of the first character to login)
  • A May 4th 2022 event badge per character logged in
  • Increased XP rate (3x the base rate)
All of these will be available from Monday the 2nd of May’s scheduled reset, to the following Monday the 9th of May’s reset. Thank you all for experiencing your SWG adventure with us here at Awakening. We hope you enjoy!

The Awakening team wishes you a happy Star Wars Day, May the 4th be with you all!

Unread post Server Instability - Request for Information

Hello everyone,

As you may know, following our release of Publish 10, there have been some stability issues. While we have fixed quite a few of the issues relating to server stability post-release, some still elude us. The vast majority of the ones that we haven't yet fixed cause issues in the form of deadlocks. These are harder than crashes to debug because they leave less of a trail for us to follow back to the source of the problem. So, what we request from you is information, as detailed as possible to help us track down the cause(s). If we can narrow them down we will be able to fix them. The kind of information we are looking for is anything relating to what you were doing when the server experienced a deadlock, especially if you've been doing exactly the same thing each time the server has gone into a deadlock. To report this information, please either submit a ticket via our Discord server in the #create-a-bug-ticket channel or email us on admin@swgawakening.com. We appreciate any and all reports we receive. As always, our main aim at Awakening is server stability.

Unread post System Outage - Recovered

Hello all, we had a system outage earlier on today at around 5:15pm EDT (U.S. Eastern), we started investigating what was going on at around 5:30pm EDT. Our host machine went down (all of our hosted services went offline as a result), we required our service provider to investigate the situation and reboot it for us. Everything has recovered now, but I just thought I'd post the updates I provided about it in Discord for those of you to look at who are not joined up.

Initial Update - 6:08 pm EDT (U.S. Eastern)
Hi all, the host server for Awakening has gone down. We have contacted our service provider to get them to investigate and reboot it for us. Once we're back in we'll bring Awakening up. At this point we are at the mercy of our service provider's support team. We'll let you all know once we've got more to share.

Second Update - 6:18pm EDT (U.S. Eastern)
Well, that was speedy, looks like we're back up already. Some of our peripheral services will still be down but the live server is operational again. The launcher patch system may be unreachable for a little while, there is a little cancel button you can use to cancel the process if you need to in order to re-enable the play button. We'll get the rest of our services back up and running as soon as possible. The launcher status will be inaccurate for a while too, that relays from a status checker that lives on our web server.

Current Update - 6:31pm EDT (U.S. Eastern)
All right, I believe I have brought everything back online that should be now. If you notice any issues please let us know via a ticket so we can investigate and resolve them as soon as possible.

Unread post She's Alive!

After a prolonged maintenance period we believe the server is finally back in action. Thanks for bearing with us through this process. I will link the previous post I made about the server here, please give it a read: Live Server Restored

The most recent issue that we brought the server down for related to a problem that was identified with missing vendor items. We isolated the cause of this to a repeating boot loop the server got stuck in when we brought it back up the last time (this was caused by external scripts misfiring). While we assumed this would of had no affect on the server at the time, upon reviewing the logs we realised that it was improperly shutting down whilst auction updates were taking place, which lead to mass deletion of vendor items. When we brought the server back up this time, we copied across a freshly extracted version of the 8am EST database backup and left it running whilst doing some checks to ensure there was no erroneous behaviour detected. We are sufficiently satisfied that the vendor issue will not recur. That being said, if you notice anything out of the ordinary going forward please let us know via a ticket or the admin email. Server stability is our utmost priority!

As stated previously:
In the end we had to rollback to our 8am EST database backup, this means approximately 6 hours of player progress has been lost. Unfortunately there is no way to recover any player data from that 6 hour window and XP, loot and any other progress lost will not be regranted by staff. To try and make up for lost XP due to the rollback and to apologise for the server downtime we have increased the server XP multiplier to 3x the base rate, this will remain active until Monday's server restart.
This still stands true. If anyone has any question or concerns please feel free to reach out. Otherwise, we hope you enjoy the increased XP and have some fun on Awakening!
