Galactic Sagas is a completely custom Garry's Mod online roleplaying game. It features a dynamic profession system, incredibly deep character customization, missions, attributes, thousands of items, crafting, housing, and much more. It is a dynamic, living, breathing Star Wars world comparable to Star Wars Galaxies circa 2003 in gameplay. The gamemode was originally started in 2010 and garnered the attention of thousands of Garry's Mod players before later being halted due to time constraints. As of August 2013, it has resumed work and has undergone a total revamp to create an even better Star Wars sandbox experience.
This is not some crap Dark RP Edit. Thousands upon thousands of hours have been put into art, coding, writing, sound, and gameplay design to ensure this is a Garry's Mod experience like none other. Players of Star Wars: Galaxies will no-doubt find more than a few similarities, as that game has strongly influenced my design. I also want to note that every feature described here is not 'an idea.' If it's listed here, it's already done and functioning.
Sandbox-Style Gameplay. Interact with and explore the Star Wars world with a compelling storyline and immersive universe.
Over 25 unique professions to mix and match to build your character. Earn experience through your actions and build your character into exactly what you want them to be. From a gun-slinging Smuggler, to an Imperial Doctor, to a galaxy renowned Chef - There's a virtually unlimited number of combinations. Play how you want.
An extensive and in-depth crafting system and meta-game, allowing players to assemble, experiment on, and even add sockets to weapons, foods, stimpacks, armor, clothing, and much more!
A dynamic item system, meaning a literally infinite amount of unique items, both crafted by players, looted from enemies, and rewarded from missions and events.
Fight against authentic Star Wars foes including battle droids, tusken raiders, feral wookiees, and dozens of other creatures. Join a faction to take part in the emerging Galactic Civil War. The AI system is completely custom and uses the new NextBot base, allowing for smarter and more interactive NPC's than ever before.
Persistent player-owned housing, complete with furniture crafting, customization, and placement.
Team up with your friends with the Squad system, allowing you to coordinate your combat, mission, and even musical efforts.
Hundreds of custom abilities and buffs, ensuring an engaging combat experience every time.
Completely Customized World. You won't see any citizens, rebels, combine, or anything of that sort. It looks and feels as a Star Wars universe should.
Travel across many planets along your journeys, including Tatooine, Naboo, and Kashyyyk, each complete with their own storylines, missions, events, and enemies, and all of them linked through an in-game shuttle system ensuring you never have to server-hop.
A robust player economy. 99% of the items, weapons, and armor you'll be using are made from player crafters, with a truly player-managed economy through the Galactic Bazaar.
The game takes place immediately following the formation of the Galactic Empire (Star Wars: Episode III). While the Clone Wars are officially over, renegade groups from both sides are still engaged in conflicts. A small Rebellion is attempting to form their roots to overthrow the new Empire, as tensions and suspicions rise over the new dictatorship. With the Galaxy in the middle of crisis, how will you make your mark on it? Your actions have a direct impact on the worlds you visit and their inhabitants. The galaxy is a large and dangerous place, but with dedication and skill you will craft your own Saga in it...
