Welcome to the seventh month of SWRP in 2023! This coming month is bound to have plenty of news of its own, but first, lets focus on what June brought us...

Tech Changes

The staff team has taken a look at some of the tech rules, changing or removing some, or changing some pieces of tech that have been outdated.

  • Removed outdated wording relegating to past timeline mechanics
  • Removed outdated rules regarding starship shields
  • Listed manuverability ratings and what they entail for a given ship.
  • Removed the outdated 'armor dampens connection to the force' language
  • Weapon Power Redistribution has been modified. If you have any ships that use this mod, you will probably need to re-read and alter as needed.
  • When using a Gauntlet/wrist-mounted armor function, you can not use the object you are holding with the hand on the same arm. You cannot be firing a blaster pistol while at the same using a flamethrower all in the same arm at the same time
  • Gauntlet/wrist-mounted functions are activated with the mounted hand or another free hand using specific motions or buttons unless otherwise specified in the description. Descriptions for wrist functions have been adjusted accordingly.
  • Survival HUD and Scout HUD replaced by the Utility HUD which combines both functionalities
  • Grapple Line and Mag-Boots functions are now marked as force-sensitive compatible functions.
  • A new optional template for armor profiles in addition to the older one,
  • Voice Scrambler Function is removed.
  • Instead, a voice changer/modulator like Kylo Ren had can be used without taking a function slot.
  • Various non-generic armor tech profiles have been edited to take into account the above changes.

    Since this is quite a bit of change to the stock functions. Be sure to update your armor profiles.

    The staff team will be continuing to review various rules/functions
PVP Changes

The following has been added to the PVP rules.
  • No use of omniscient security features in a given base, location, ship .etc
    • For example you cannot be in a room or section of a ship and have visuals of rooms, halls or control of doors in the location.

General Time Update
  • Time has advanced (1) year since the last newsletter.
