The following is an excerpt of a blog article.  Read Full Article

I am really very excited about this week's Friday Feature. It was compiled and editied by Agent Orange Juice (AOJ) (Jenniveve in game). If you aren't aware, AOJ decorated several rooms on Jato, our space station. He is also an amazing artist who has created portraits for several of our community. AOJ… awesome work!

I am quite new to SWG galaxies as a whole, but I admit I found this feature both impressive and familiar.

I find it impressive because in comparison to other MMOs, that have barely a few emotes at all, such extensive support for social commands is commendable. Whoever coded these things in the original game really cared for roleplay and social interaction and not only for mechanics (which were awesome to boot).

But I also find it familiar as someone who played extensively and still plays text-based multiplayer games (the MUDs, Multi User Dungeons), since in those games moods and social work in a very similar or identical way.

But indeed, Star Wars Galaxies is the first MMO I really find that gives me the vibe of text, as much as a graphical medium can achieve at least. If anything because basically anything can be done through command line.

You made a very didactical and useful write-up, thanks a lot, Sandarie!

I'll be honest, there was stuff in that FF that I didn't know...just goes to show, there's always something new to learn.
