Ever wonder what kind of process developers go through to make their
additions and changes to their game updates? Do the devs actually
analyze and ask for input from the player base, or do they just go at
it? In this very intriguing developer diary, Star Wars Galaxies'
James Michener discusses the cycle he went through to developer the
content that was made available to characters in SWG's Game Update 8.

The first thing I did was to reach out to Cigaran, the City Senator, who represents the community with respect to “City” focused feedback. I immediately contacted him to get his views on what the priorities were in the player’s perspective. I had a list of “to-dos” as always, but needed to get a feel for the community’s perspective, and where they would like to see the update go. I’m amazed at the amount of insight the City Senator was able to provide, which was good considering the size of the list he handed me at the same time!
