Ok, I just started this game today, and there is one thing I don't really understand yet. My starting city is Mos Eisley, with my current speed of 4, it takes 30 minutes to travel to an adjacent square. Tell me, is this game really that slow? I mean I like to explore the city and stuff, but to do it would take weeks in real life. Why is this game so slow? How do others feel about it? Are people getting anywhere here? I guess I was expecting at least a faster pace.
Once you have access to a ship or vehicle, ground travel is substantially faster.
Traveling across the galaxy will still take time, depending on your distance, but at this point it really isn't a problem since there isn't much else you need to do in the client as things such as trading can be done while traveling.
I struggled with the time at first too,but you get used to it.Im a new user also and iv realized its a game u only need to check a couple of times a week.PATIENCE young combine player.
If you press the scan button and look 4 a npc called vehicle rent or (something like it)u walk 2 her and rent a speeder ,that will move quicker arround the city.Or join a faction that will get u off that planet and give u a job.I started in the same city,i think the rental place is 13,4 or 4,13.....i hope that helps
Alright, im ok with that of waiting every 3 days to see what's happening in the game but... ise there any way to abort the travelling? its because I stupdly started a 16 hr voyage leaving my spider behind and well its quite stressing
What you do depends on your job. Navies actually tend to be the largest divisions in the game since everyone likes flying ships. (: In most cases you prepare for combat, stage combat on message boards or something, or just fly around for XP. Alternately, you might be assigned to fly around various systems scanning them, to patrol for other ships.
