XP means eXperience Points. You get XP for most actions, like traveling/walking around, prospecting etc. Once you reach a certain amount of XP, you hit a new XP level, and your HP rises. Also you will earn skill point which can be used to enhance your character's skills.

Question: How do I know if I am Force Sensitive?
Answer:

You need to be force tested by a Jedi or Sith Master. Currently force sensitives aren't too happy with force testing request, so don't go bug them. For force testing you need to be in the same room as the Jedi or the Sith.

--------------

Question: At what level can I be Force tested and what are my odds?
Answer:

Check the character page to see what your chances are to be force sensitive. If you are human, you will probably have 6 % chance. This is at level 1, your chances increase when you reach other levels:
level: 1 / 6 / 11 / 16 / 21 / 25
% chance: 6 / 12 / 18 / 24 / 30 / 36

Question: Why does it take so much time to travel or walk from one square to the other, when I'm walking in a city?
Answer:

The SW Combine is played in "delayed real time". This means each action consumes some time. When you decide to space travel, the Darkness Space Travel option will tell you how many days and hours the journey will last. These are real days and real hours. That's for the real time.

For the delay, in order to solve the problem of difference of time between the players around the world, some actions will last longer in the SW Combine (a few hours) than in real life (a few seconds). This will allow the other players to react to events happening to them while they are not connected.

--------------

Question: What are NPC's?
Answer:

NPC's stands for Non Player Character and they come in many forms. You encounter NPC's when you are at your starting planet. You can talk to them, they might pick-pocket you and you can sometimes rent a speeder. Find more info about NPC's at: http://rules.swcombine.com/general/npcs/

Question: What are CP's and how do I get them?
Answer:

CPs are the OOC (out of character) version of credits, awarded to players for helping the Combine in an OOC way. This can be done by clicking on the banners (click on your CP's to go to this page), or doing work for the admins, like making descriptions of planets or doing art-work. Clicking on the text 'support us' will give you 50 CP's, the cluster of small banners below will give you 5 CP's each. Note you only can do it every 24 hours. CPs can be exchanged for credits (1 CP = 5 credits), or you can change CP's for a variety of ships and vehicles, on the CP Exchange page. I recommend not trading them into credits. If your character dies in the game you will loose all of your credits, ships, buildings and whatever you possessed in IC life, but you will keep your CP's because they are OOC.

--------------

Question: Where and how do i use CP's?
Answer:

The Combine Points are given to you by the admins for out of character (OOC) efforts you do to support and help the Star Wars Combine or by clicking the banners. You can exchange CP's for ships, vehicles and other inventory items (as they come available), some of which are only available through the CP exchange system.
When you click on your CP's, you will see this link to the CP exchange system: [Exchange CPs]

--------------

Question: What is Darkness? and what are Darkness messages?
Answer:

Darkness is what the Combine is also called and Darkness messages are the messages you can use on the Combine website. Just click on the small envelope and you will see.

--------------

Question: Someone just stole my ship/credits what do I do now?
Answer:

There is nothing you can do at this moment, because stealing is allowed in the Combine. To prevent something like this from happening while you are trading, you should always use a trustworthy middle man (like Chin-Chon, Xearz, Bren Morgarr, Midge Cellewan)

--------------

Question: Where can I report bugs or typo's in the Combine?
Answer:

Reporting a typos and/or bugs to the Administration is always very helpful. Report a bug or report a typo by filling out a bug report.

--------------

Question: Can I help enhancing the Combine?
Answer:

You think you may help somewhere? You designed a picture that would suit the website perfectly? Or maybe you found a better description for a race? Or maybe you wrote something that would enhance the Combine? Do not hesitate, open a topic in the Message Centre and submit your work. The admins reward stuff that's being used with a lot of CPs.

--------------

Question: When will the Combine be finished?
Answer:

The Combine is an ongoing project so it will probably never be finished, there are new features being added as time goes by. Take a look at: http://www.swcombine.com/community/comingsoon.php

--------------

Question: Under "Inventory" I have a label "DISABLED". Why is it disabled? Can't I use any items? I am only 1st level. Is this the reason?
Answer:

"Inventory" and of course also "Items" is not implement in the Starwars Combine yet. That's why you can't have items or buy them or use them. This has nothing to do with your level.

--------------

Question: what is IRC?
Answer:

IRC is a chat server with multiple channels for you to visit so you chat with other members of the Combine.
Of course Mandalore also has a private channel: #swc-mandalore.

--------------

Answer:

Type the following 3 lines in the channel you visit:
/ns register <your e-mail> <your password>
