Establishing a player city

The steps to establishing a player city are:

  • Place a deed for a City Hall on a planet that has not reached:
    • 25 cities on Corellia, Naboo, or Tatooine
    • 50 cities on Dantooine, Lok, Rori, or Talus
  • The character with which you place the City Hall deed will automatically declare its residence as the City Hall. Four additional characters must place a house within 150 meters of City Hall and declare residence within 24 hours.

Player city rank

Player city rank is determined by citizenship and enables the following civic structures:

Rank Title Citizens Radius Enabled civic structures
1 Outpost 5 declared 150 m Small gardens
2 Village 10 declared 200 m Medium gardens, Bank, Garage, Cantina
3 Township 15 declared 300 m Large gardens, Cloning facility, Hospital
4 City 30 declared 400 m Shuttleport, Theater
5 Metropolis 40 declared 450 m


Player cities update once a week; the exact time for the city update can be determined from the City Maintenance Terminal located in City Hall. Prior to taxation and city maintenance, the city rank and citizenship is validated. If the city has enough citizens to advance, the city is promoted. If the city does not have enough citizens to maintain their current rank, they are demoted. The Mayor is notified of any changes in city rank.

A specialization gives the city a bonus in some area for an increased cost in city maintenance. Different city specializations are available provided the city is of sufficient rank (minimum of Rank 3). A city can have only one specialization at a time and may only be changed once a week (to take effect with the next city update). Once a specialization is put into effect, it remains until the Mayor changes or removes it.

The weekly maintenance on a city varies depending on your city's rank, what structures you have placed and what specializations you have in place. You can find a detailed read-out of your city's weekly maintenance on the city terminal in your city hall (not the structure terminal). City maintenance is taken from the city treasury once a week.

Once the city's rank has been validated, the city's weekly maintenance fee is subtracted from the treasury. City Hall maintenance is paid first, then the rest of the structures. If the city can't pay for a structure, it becomes damaged and the mayor is notified of the structure status; the status of a civic structure can be checked from the City Maintenance Terminal. If a civic structure is damaged and reaches 0 condition, it is destroyed. **If City Hall is destroyed, all civic structures and decorations are destroyed and the city is disbanded; a city should take four weeks to decay if no maintenance is paid. If a city can't pay for mission terminals, skill trainers, or decorations they are destroyed and the Mayor is notified.


Elections are held every 3 weeks. Changes to the voting register are only allowed during the first two weeks of each election cycle. Challengers and the incumbent Mayor may withdraw from the race. Citizens who do not cast a vote during an election automatically vote for the incumbent mayor.

  • Challenger: the incumbent mayor receives an in-game mail notifying them they are being challenged.
  • Challenger win: all mayor abilities, civic structures, and decorations are automatically transferred to the new mayor.
  • Challenger loss or election tie: the mayor retains their position.
  • No challenger: the incumbent mayor is automatically reelected.

GCW Allignment

With Game Update 15, Player Cities can now allign their city to either Imperial or Rebel faction, or choose to remain Neutral in the GCW.

When a player city is alligned, the following bonuses will apply:

Player Cities that are not alligned will still experience roaming factional spawns outside the confines of their city borders.
