NEW Character Transfer Service FAQ



Free character transfers are coming to Star Wars Galaxies early next year! A list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) is now available to let you know more about items that will and will not transfer during the upcoming promotion. More details about this promotion, including dates and a list of servers, will be released at a later time.

Chapter 11: The Battle of Echo Base includes a number of improvements to the character transfer service (CTS). Please note that some of the items listed below do not transfer at this time if you are paying to transfer a character before Chapter 11 launches. Once Chapter 11 is released, items such as factory crates and resources will transfer. However, vendors and the contents of vendors will not transfer even when Chapter 11 is live.

The details found below about items, names, character slots, player associations, vendors, and server firsts apply to both standard (paid) character transfer and the free character transfer service promotion. The only difference between free CTS and standard CTS is that a same account transfer between certain designated galaxies during the free CTS period will be free of charge.

Please see the FAQ below for more details about the free promotion and character transfer service.

Why is Sony Online Entertainment offering free character transfers?

The goal of this upcoming promotion is to address players' concerns about server populations with the most player-friendly option possible – by putting the power in the players' hands. This promotion gives players the opportunity to make their own choice by taking advantage of one server transfer per character at no charge.



When does the promotion begin?

The free character transfer service is planned for early next year (2009).



Where can I find a list of servers that will be offering a free transfer?

More details, including a server list, will be provided at least one month before the promotion begins.



Why isn't the list of servers being released right now?

Data about current server populations is still being collected to make the best possible determination for the list of servers. The list will be released at least thirty days before the start of the promotion.



Are any servers going to be closed due to this promotion?

We do not have any plans to close any servers at this time.



Can I move my character from a non-free CTS server to another server at no charge?

Standard character transfer service fees apply when transferring from a non-free CTS server ("target server") to any other galaxy. Only characters moved from a Free Character Transfer galaxy to a target galaxy can move for no charge.



Can I move my character from a Free Character Transfer server to another Free Character Transfer server at no charge?

Standard character transfer service fees apply when transferring from a Free Character Transfer server to another Free Character Transfer server. Only characters moved from a Free Character Transfer galaxy to a target galaxy can move for no charge.



If I move to a target server from a Free Character Transfer server, can I move again to a different target server at no charge?

A character is only allowed one move to a target galaxy for no charge.



Can I move my character to a different account at no charge?

Standard character transfer service fees apply when transferring a character to a different account.





Are there limitations to the items that will transfer with my character?

Specific items that will not transfer:

• Vendors and contents of vendors will not transfer

Specific items that will transfer:

• Items equipped by the character (and contained in items equipped by the character)
• Items in the character's inventory (and contained in items in the character's inventory)
• Items in the character's bank (and contained in items in the character's bank)
• Resources and factory crates

Specific items in the datapad that will transfer:

Everything in the datapad, except a packed vendor and contents of the packed vendor, will transfer, including:

• Packed up structures and all of their contents
• Packed up factories and all of their contents
• Ships and all equipped components
• POB ships and all of their contents
• Pets and beasts
• Vehicles
• Droids
• Waypoints
• All draft schematics, including temporary schematics

Items that do not qualify as either "items equipped by the character" or "items in the character's datapad" as noted in the aforementioned terms will not transfer.



If I have a vendor obtained as loot via the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game, how do I transfer it?

TCG vendors must be destroyed in-game before the transfer. Be sure to remove all items from them before destroying them!



After destroying the vendor you will regain the ability to create that vendor again. The ability to create that TCG vendor will transfer properly. This process only works on vendors obtained as loot in the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game.



What if my character name is taken on the target server?

Character names are not guaranteed on galaxy-to-galaxy transfers. If the character's name has already been used on the galaxy you wish to move to, you will be able to enter a new name in the field provided (subject to the terms and conditions of the Character Naming Policy).



Will my house/structure also transfer with my character?

To transfer structures and their contents with the character, use the pack-up structure option on the maintenance terminal to pack up the structure to the datapad. Structures that are left in the world, as well as their contents, will not be transferred with your character.



Will my player association also transfer with my character?

Any player association affiliation is removed as part of the character move process.



What if I already have two characters (or three with an unlocked slot) on the target server I wish to transfer to?

You must have an empty character slot on the target server in order to move a character there.



What if all eight of my character slots are filled?

An account that has the maximum 8 characters will be allowed to do a same account transfer without having to delete a character to temporarily "make room" for the new character.



If I have three characters on one galaxy, can I move all three to a galaxy where I did not unlock the third character slot?

Yes, if you don't have any other characters on that destination galaxy. Transfer the unlocked character first, then after the transfer, use the /occupyUnlockedSlot command to make that the unlocked slot character on the destination galaxy. There are now two free slots on the destination galaxy to transfer the other two characters as normal characters.



Will I lose my Server First recognition?

If you have completed a Server First on your original server and transfer to a different server, you will keep your badge, title, recognition on the original server's list on the official web site, and recognition on the original server's Collection window. You will not be recognized on the destination server's Collection window or the destination server's list on the official web site.



Keep an eye on this FAQ for future updates, and be sure to visit the official Star Wars Galaxies web site for more news and information about this exciting promotion!

Free Character Transfer Service Begins January 13, 2009

In response to requests from our players we are offering a limited time opportunity to move any characters on identified servers to a designated target galaxy at no charge. We believe that by offering a Free Character Transfer Service (CTS) in this manner we can address the concerns we have heard players voice with respect to server population. It is our hope that those of you who are looking to move will take this opportunity to do so beginning on January 13, 2009, and that this will bring with it a fresh sense of excitement and enthusiasm that will extend across all the galaxies.

Free Character Transfer will begin at 12:01AM PST on January 13, 2009, and will only be offered to those accounts with characters created on or before December 10, 2008 at 11:59 PM PST on the identified galaxies listed below. Again, the only way to qualify for the Free Character Transfer is to be on one of the identified Free Character Transfer servers and move to one of the targeted galaxy servers and this is only available on a one-time/once per character basis. The Free Character Transfer service will end on March 31, 2009 at 11:59PM PST.

More Details

Effective January 13, 2009, and ending on March 31, 2009, the character(s) you have active on the identified current "transferred from" galaxies* listed below, that were created on or before December 10, 2008 at 11:59PM PST, may be moved to one of the destination servers at no charge*. This option will be available on a one-time/once per characterbasis.

The current "transferred from" galaxy servers include:

• Corbantis
• Europe-Infinity
• Intrepid
• Kauri
• Kettemoor
• Lowca
• Naritus
• Scylla
• Tarquinas
• Tempest
• Valcyn
• Wanderhome

The valid destination galaxy servers include:

• Ahazi
• Bloodfin
• Bria
• Chilastra
• Eclipse
• Europe-Chimaera
• Europe-FarStar
• Flurry
• Gorath
• Radiant
• Shadowfire
• Starsider
• Sunrunner

Free Character Transfer Service Rewards – Available to Transferred Characters that Meet Free CTS Requirements

In the spirit of galactic friendship, all characters who move to a valid destination galaxy will receive a relocation gift of a painting which when "examined" will carry the name of the transferred character and the home (transferred from) planet on it. Only characters who transfer to a valid destination server as part of this promotional free character transfer service are eligible to receive the painting gift.

Along with the painting, players who transfer to a valid destination galaxy as part of the promotional free CTS will also receive a gift box which can only be used as a gift to give to a waiting welcomer on the new galaxy. Once the gift box is given to another player, it can be opened to reveal the same painting received by the transferor but with a new inscription which includes the "welcomer" recipient's name and the moving character's name and home galaxy, as a "thank you" for their warm welcome of the newcomer (the inscription is only visible when you use the "Examine" option to view the painting).

It is in the spirit of peace and friendship that we offer these gifts and hope that the goodwill that comes from sharing these gifts will spread across the galaxy like the stars overhead.

We want your experience with Star Wars Galaxies to be the best possible and look forward to seeing you in your new home galaxy!

More details on this promotion will be released in the coming days and weeks.

May the Force be with you!
