Awakening 6 Year Anniversary Celebrations

Hello Players of Awakening,

Another year has passed us by, Awakening is officially 6 years old (on November 8th) and it’s safe to say this has been a rather hard year for most of us around the world. We, as a community, have been able to endure a global pandemic, and provide our players with an escape from the craziness that is 2020. Thanks to our vibrant community for being so welcoming and inclusive of new and returning players, you make Awakening truly special. A special thank you to those of you who have been able to donate to Awakening in the past or at present, your kindness is much appreciated by all of us on the staff team!

To celebrate the 6 years we have been adventuring through our very own Star Wars Galaxies with all of you, we will be having the usual weekend long event (Restart on the 6th – Restart on the 9th). The event will include a commemorative set of paintings, XP bonus and a badge for your toons. In addition to this, we will also be running a couple of tiers of lottery (they will be drawn a week after being initiated).

This is how the weekend’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 6th of November (this mechanism will be on until the next server restart).

  • A special commemorative badge will be awarded to each toon logged in between the usual scheduled restarts on the 6th and 9th.

  • 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% (base, plus a temporary increase due to COVID), to 3x or 300% of the base value.

  • Two lotteries will be initiated at some stage over the weekend, and be drawn in one week’s time from the start date. A staff member will announce when they are placed and their location.

    Prizes include:
    • Tier One: 1 CSR Prize Token.

    • Tier Two: 2,000,000 (two million) credits

  • Depending on availability of staff, there may also be scattered spontaneous live events across the weekend.

To be eligible to get the anniversary rewards you will need to restart all Awakening clients and the launcher if you have either open, after the November 6th restart. This is so the updated ‘fhemu4.tre’ file downloads to your Awakening install.

The rest of the staff team and myself would like to thank everyone again for their contributions to this community, whether that be as a player, or a member of staff, past and present. Without you, it would not have been possible for us to have made it to 6 years of continuous operation. We look forward to seeing all the amazing things that happen in our Star Wars Galaxies in the future, and we hope to see you with us for many years to come!

The Mandalorian Season 2 Spoiler Policy

Hi all, with the imminent release of The Mandalorian season 2, please do not talk about spoilers openly on any of our services (forums, game, Discord, etc). The only place that discussion of the episodes will be allowed, for the first two weeks after the release of any episode is in #mandalorian-spoilers on Discord (flagged as NSFW temporarily). Posting about the episodes is also allowed on the forums but must be contained within a topic that is very clearly marked with "SPOILERS" in the title. This is to allow everyone a decent chance to watch each episode as it is released without having aspects of it spoiled for them, thank you for your understanding.

IMPORTANT: Rules and Policies Major Update

Hello valued community member,

We have pushed out a long overdue major update to our main Rules and Policies listing, which is posted on the forums and is publically accessible. To most of you this won't effect the way you currently conduct yourself on any of our platforms and services in the slightest. However, it is very important that you take the time to read through the update and familiarise yourself with the rules and policies as they currently stand after the update. Ignorance is not an excuse with regards to not having followed them if you are caught in breach of any aspect of them.

As with all things new, the update may undergo further revisions in the following days and weeks. This will mostly be to correct any typos, grammar or bad wording that is identified (if any is identified at all).

If you have any questions or concerns please open a ticket or send an email to admin@swgawakening.com (expect slower response times via the email)

Rules and Policies post:


Thanks for choosing SWG Awakening as your SWG Pre-CU home! We hope to have you with us for many years to come.

Awakening Donations

Just a reminder to everyone. Awakening relies on donations to cover operational costs. This is because we do not and cannot generate a commercial revenue stream to keep the lights on, as a requirement of keeping the operation of the emulator legal.

I know that money is tight for a lot of people right now, but if you have a few dollars you can spare, please contemplate putting some towards keeping Awakening going. I've put in $40 USD this month, and often chuck in some every other month. Any donations are appreciated no matter how big or small! Even if you can't donate, just helping out new players, making them feel welcome, and being a positive community member is great for the server as well.

Thanks for playing SWG with us here at Awakening, and making this community a great one!

Further donation information and the button to process a donation can be found here.
