Citizens who have been part of Star Wars Galaxies for 57 months will receive a great reward for their loyalty this month as we introduce the homing beacon. Need to avoid Imperial entanglements at the starport? Have to get home in a hurry? Save time with the homing beacon veteran reward!
Placing the Beacon
The homing beacon, the 57 month veteran reward, allows pilots in the system to land their ships from the space station above their home. Placing the beacon in a house or other building will mark that location as a direct landing spot for any starship.
The homing beacon is a No Trade item that veterans can place in any structure they own. This item can be placed in a structure like any other piece of furniture or decoration and will automatically set the structure as a landing zone.
Finding Your Way Home
Pilots can only land at their home if they are in the same star system as their structure. For example, if the pilot is in Naboo space, he or she is unable to land at their home outside of Mos Eisley.
The homing beacon technology is attuned to the veteran only, so the structure can only serve as a landing spot for the owner of the beacon. Other administrators for the building cannot use the homing beacon to land their starships.
Picking up the homing beacon or packing up the house removes the area as a viable landing zone, but it can be placed again to re-enable it.
We hope you enjoy this token of appreciation for your 57 months in Star Wars Galaxies!
