This week's Friday Update brings a Fan Friday and a Studio Insider. The Fan Friday features a good selection of avatars, wallpaper, emoticons, and other goodies, while the Studio Insider goes into depth about the design of Coruscant.
The second Community Q & A thread also opened, and once again questions are open, so feel free to head over and ask the developers about whatever parts of The Old Republic you want to hear about. With the opening of the second Q & A thread, the first one has closed, and some of those questions have been answered in the Community Q & A section of today's Studio Insider. More than a few hot button issues were answered in the Q & A, most notably one on PVE and PVP servers. DevTracker posts after the jump.
We have a blast going through the art, fiction, and other creations posted in The Old Republic forums! There's a ton of fantastic artists in our community, and we are dedicating this Friday to highlighting some of their work. We're releasing new wallpaper, smilie, and avatar additions, as well!
Also, be sure to check out this month's Studio Insider for some exciting new content and answers to some of your questions.
In this Studio Insider World Designer Eric Young gives us a glimpse at the brilliance of Coruscant, and Dallas Dickinson answers your questions in the Community Q&A.They call me Eric Young. I've been a World Designer at BioWare for almost four years now; my job is to design the layout of planets, place buildings and mold terrain into mountains, valleys and roads. I work from the writers' storylines to make sure the environment makes sense, and plan out roads and landmarks so that players can figure out where they are and where they need to go. It is a job that gives me the opportunity to interact with lots of talented people across multiple departments, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
A Jedi Temple smolders, crushed in a sudden and devastating assault. A powerful Jedi Master lies dead amidst the ruins. All this destruction wrought by the hands of one Sith Lord: Darth Malgus.
