Below you’ll find an index of all of our Friday Features over the years. There is a wealth of great information, so be sure to take a look!
Join the community on Empire in Flames for this year’s celebrations of Empire Day and Remembrance Day! While once a commemoration of the foundation of the Empire, Empire Day is now also a day for loyal Imperials to mourn the loss of their Emperor. For the former members of the Rebellion, what was originally a day to honor soldiers fallen in battle in Remembrance Day now also celebrates the New Republic’s founding. Whether you fight for the Empire or the New Republic, players can listen to speeches, tear down or put up propaganda posters, and race across Endor or they can group up and join the PvE and PvP battlegrounds. Completing objectives will award you Empire/Remembrance Day coins, which can be used to barter for rewards including new schematics, air-speeders, and decoration items that haven’t yet been seen on the server. Unlike other holiday events, Empire Day allows you to participate in as many events as you want, as many times as you want. This means you can grind out all the coins you might need in the course of a couple of days, or take your time and earn them over the course of the event.
This year, Empire/Remembrance Day starts on July 1st and will run the entire month of July. Head on over to Kuat City on Kuat (for Imperials) or Hanna City on Chandrila (for NR) to get started.
Once you land at your respectively-aligned city, talk to your Event Coordinator for a quick run-down about the holiday, and the types of events available to you. Each Coordinator also has a BB-unit that you can speak with to check your Empire Day or Remembrance Day Coin balance, as well as redeem your earned coins for the available rewards.
Amidst the decorations and troops gathered in celebration, a handful of other NPCs are scattered about that will have more information on quests or activities you can participate in.
Welcome to the Friday Feature edition of Better Homes and Galaxies, here on Empire in Flames. This edition will review all the latest and greatest prefabricated residential and commercial units available throughout the galaxy, where they can be built, and more.
(Important Note: For now, we focus on unique housing that is available via one-time schematics. Housing native to the Architect skill will be added soon)
Today, we announce the debut of EiF’s Galactic Homeshow! Thank you to Jeil for coordinating and facilitating the event! Read on to learn more:
We have recently marked EIF’s 6th year and soon SWG’s 20th. No doubt the lasting nature of the game comes down to the community and as such we now look to celebrate some of the player’s finest creations with the Galactic Home Show. Each month submissions will open for a period of 2 weeks and close for internal voting. We may draw additional community members in at random to add in their votes.
For our first event, June 2023, submission deadline will be June 16th.
The person selected will receive a Friday Feature detailing their creation with a short interview and their in-game character will receive the Galactic Home Show winner badge.
You can submit your builds to firstname.lastname@example.org
Title your email in the following format:
Home Show Submission – Month Year – In-game Name
- Example: Home Show Submission – June 2023 – Jeil Tain
Body of the e-mail should contain a waypoint with coordinate and planet information. Attach up to 10 screenshots.
- One building per account, per submission period.
- Must be PG-13 per our ToS.
- Limited to 10 screenshots per submission, prefer jpeg to reduce file sizes.
- Buildings must be set to public access.
- The building must be of your own design and doing. (No commissions, unless you were the builder of said project.)
We look forward to seeing what you create!
Updated for April 2023!
The annual Great Egg Hunt returns to Empire in Flames! During this seasonal event players will track down crates of eggs hidden across the galaxy and participate in a airspeeder race to collect eggs, which can be exchanged for unique prizes.
Upon logging in at the start of the event, all players will receive a holocomm call advertising the event. After answering the call, head on over to Pandath on Tanaab and look for Kari – the Togruta near the farm stands just outside the starport. She’ll give a quick rundown of the event, as well as showcase the rewards list for what you can trade your eggs for. As in years past there is also a speeder race that will reward eggs upon your first completion. Don’t have an airspeeder? No problem! Speak with the Egg Hunt Airspeeder Race Coordinator to receive a V-4XD airspeeder to use in the race if you have not received one last year.
This year, egg containers will be scattered across all planets and you will find them in areas with starports or shuttleports. Be sure to look high, low, and everywhere in between for these crates could be anywhere and some may be easier, or much harder, to find than others. Don’t think that you’ll get off easy and be able to /target your way into finding them – it won’t work. You’ll have to spot them the old-fashioned way.
Once you do find an egg container, make sure you radial the container and select “Collect Egg” to collect it. You can also use the radial to keep track of how many eggs you have so far and don’t worry – they don’t take up space in your inventory. There is a total of 93 eggs to be found in these types of crates across the Outer Rim, and each character can only collect one egg per located container. Some starports or outposts may have more containers than others, as well.
A guaranteed way to earn 15 eggs is to participate in the airspeeder race, which is located near Pandath’s parking garage. This year, players that speak to the Race Coordinator droid will receive a deed for a V-4XD Ski Speeder, provided they did not claim one last year. After you get your new ride, speak to the Race Coordinator again, start the race, and take off for a scenic tour of Taanab.
Once you complete the race under 900 seconds, you will be awarded your 15 eggs and you can keep your speeder to use freely. Like other vehicles, your airspeeder can be called from your datapad but only while in the vicinity of a parking garage. Each character on your account is eligible to receive the schematic, so don’t forget to check out the race and get your fancy new speeder.
Be sure to take a look at the rewards vendor to see what prizes are available, and how many eggs you need to acquire them. Note that you cannot transfer eggs between other characters on your account or to other players, so spend wisely!
If the new list of rewards wasn’t enough, this year Halyn has reintroduced a contest during the Egg Hunt. The first player to complete the full Egg Hunt and receive all 113 eggs will receive a permanent, parked starfighter as a city decoration.
The winner will also be able to choose the type of starfighter that they would like to receive from the following:
Scurrg Bomber, Scyk, Naboo N1, Dunelizard, Kimogila, Kihraxz, Vaksai, Ixiyen, Rihkxyrk, Krayt, Mandalorian Fang Fighter, TIE Fighter, Tie Interceptor, TIE Bomber, TIE Aggressor, TIE Advanced v1, TIE Advanced x1, TIE Avenger, TIE Defender, TIE Oppressor, TIE Reaper, Z-95, BTL-AT Y-Wing, BTA-NR2 Y-wing, T-65 X-wing, T-70 X-wing, T-wing, V-wing, ARC-170, Belbullab-22, ETA-2 Actis, Delta-7b Aethersprite, Vulture Droid Fighter, HWK-290, G-1A Starfighter, Sheathipede Class Shuttle
Is there something you’re dying to have but you don’t see it on this list? You can make a request for a different ship that is EiF timeline appropriate and within reason, the EiF Staff will try to make it happen.
If you manage to find all 98 Egg Containers and win the 15 Eggs from the race, be sure to message Halyn directly for verification and pick out your reward!
Well, what are you waiting for? Get crackin’!
