  15. How are you addressing AFK Farming and Credit Inflation
  16. We actively monitor a snapshot of the economy to evaluate its condition and have implemented a number of changes to adjust both incoming and outgoing credits. We take the role and effect of unattended or "away from keyboard" (AFK) gameplay seriously. You can read more about our approach in our Developer Diary: Redefining and Addressing Unattended Gameplay.

  17. What classes are within the game?
  18. The class system is entirely free to be mixed and matched and based on skill boxes within each profession. A character can level up in whatever profession they would like, with a hard skill limit of 250 pts. See more on our wiki.

  19. Will family members be allowed to play alongside each other even if they share the same IP address?
  20. Yes. SWG Restoration allows only one (1) account per person. Account sharing is not allowed. Each account owner must have their own computer. A total of six (6) accounts may come from the same IP address (home). You do not need to request special permission for multiple accounts. The game launcher will register each computer.

  21. Is there new or original content like new planets or species?
  22. We're always working on exciting additions to the game. Take a look at our Project Roadmap to see what we have in store.

  23. When does the game take place?
  24. The Restoration Galaxy takes place in 3 ABY after the Battle of Hoth. The storylines of Star Wars Galaxies are not considered canon. The game will continue to follow the story arcs and events in the "Legends" Expanded Universe which includes movies, books, comics, and games authored prior to 2014, without respect to changes or additions from the Skywalker Trilogy or future canon materials.
