    Hey guys,

    I was asked to create a scene using the Hal Hutta system. But I can't find any reference to this system anywhere. Nothing more than Wedge used this system for training.

    Does anyone know of this system. Is it a water planet, cityplanet ??? I don't even know what color it should be.

    Thanks for any help.

    Try searching for Nal Hutta, I believe that's it's proper name.

    I know it has a moon called Nar Shaddar (sp) that is basically a city planet like Coruscant but a little more run down because it's controlled by pirates, smugglers, etc. There are a lot of EU books that talk about Nal Hutta. The Han Solo Trilogy goes into it as well as the Essential Guide to Planets and Moons. I'd suggest looking there first. a quick trip to B&N could produce some good results. Don't even have to buy the book. :)

    Nal Hutta

    A bruised green, blue, and brown planet in the Y'Toub system, Nal Hutta (meaning "glorious jewel" in Huttese) is one of the primary planets settled by the Hutts after leaving their ancestral home of Varl. The planet's immense size is compensated by its extremely low density, giving it a tolerable gravity. Nal Hutta was once a pleasant world of mountainous rain forests. Since their arrival, however, the Hutts have transformed it into a gloomy planet of stinking bogs, stagnant, scum-covered puddles, and patches of sickly marsh grass inhabited by insects and spiders. The planet's flocks of large, clumsy birds are shot down by swoop-riding hunters. The atmosphere is polluted by strip-mining operations in the Nal Hutta's industrial centers, and a greasy rain drizzles down on the world's destitute inhabitants living in their squatters' villages and ghettos. Entertainment centers located near the Nal Hutta spaceport stand on stilts in the planet's swampy ground. The white palace of Durga the Hutt lies across from the spaceport, and features a swamp- water bathhouse and an infamous network of dungeons. Nal Hutta and its moon, Nar Shaddaa, are located in the center of "Hutt Space" and receive a constant traffic of freight haulers, smugglers, and other galactic traders. Raw materials are continually strip-mined from Nal Hutta's surface and shipped to the Nar Shaddaa moon for processing and transport. The planet is ruled by a council of the eldest members of the "Clans of the Ancients," the oldest Hutt families. The world's population consists of nearly seven billion inhabitants, three billion of them Hutts.

    Many years ago, the planet was known as Evocar and was the homeworld of the primitive Evocii. When the Hutts arrived, they traded technology to the Evocii in exchange for land-- eventually buying up the planet and forcing the Evocii from their homeworld. The Old Republic relocated the displaced Evocii to the Nar Shaddaa moon, but they fared no better there. Once the Hutts controlled the entire planet, they replaced all Evocii structures with Hutt palaces and shrines and renamed the world Nal Hutta. The planet's nearness to busy hyperspace lanes made it a popular trade world at the time, though the trade lanes have long since shifted. In recent history, Nal Hutta and its moon have become a haven for smugglers, pirates, and criminals. A massive, radioactive gas cloud, containing the hidden planet Ganath, lies very close to Nal Hutta. [DE, GG4, DE2, DESB, DS]
