Besides guild mothership, we should have a legacy mothership for all our alts in the same galaxy. And perhaps, instead of buying, we are required to gather/buy/loot parts to build the mothership. This added another layer of challenges to complete to build the mothership. Those who have played Eve Online will know what I meant by collecting different parts and resources to build a spaceship.

May I suggest just one feature that would be great to have on a guild fleet ship? Good, then lets be able to sit down and play a game of Pazaac with guild members. Sometimes your simply waiting for members to log on for an ops run and this would be a great way to pass the time.

[hijack]I would think a guild vanity pet would be way cool. Unfortunately, without guild tabards, customizing the pet to reflect the guild is problematic.[/hijack]

You all know they are coming? BW/EA will make a killing on the CM with guild ships and they know it. This game is all about the money they can get over subs. As it is they have not added anything new for crafting cause they are greedy.

That's not really how the CM works, more then likely, were they to add guild ships, and include the CM, they'd give Guilds a stock ship, modeled after the interiors of Imp and Pub ships seen in game, then, they'd have CM Cosmetic Alternate skins, for a Czerka ship, a Hutt ship, etc, etc.

A Guild Ship is a great idea and have had this talk many times with my guild members. The more ideas for it I see the more I would love to see it added to game. Here are a few of my own ideas on it,
1: The Guild leader buys a base model ship via a tab in the guild bank (set price for it), using credits from the guild bank. This would then allow guild members to claim a bound token from the guild bank that allows them to quick travel to guild ship (no cool down please). With the number of planets these ships could be located in orbit above different ones allowing the guild leader to pick what planet they wanted to orbit. (permanent location of ship)
2: When guild members arrive on the ship there is a NPC that gives quest to complete, these quest are open when the guild leader starts a build. A set number of quest must be completed before the build can be finished. Rewards for the quest could be about anything, exp, gear, mats, etc.
3: The builds for the guild leader to pick would be for different trainers and areas on ship that allow for schematics for crafting that are only available via a guild ship, as well as crafting materials for those items. A game room would be a cool addition that allows members to challenge each other or just sit and relax.
4: For each build there would need to be set materials needed. The materials for being able to build would have to be farmed and turned into the NPC as a separate holding, or deducted when turned in so guild members would know what was left to get.
5: Guild events on ship that would allow the guild to all partake, maybe some type of flashpoint or op. Another option is a mass event that allows the guild to host an event that is open to the server for a small preset donation to the guild, (may have to set a limit to the number of people able to join due to server lag). Exp would be given to all that partake as well as rewards. Weekly quest for the event would be nice as well. If a mass event was hosted then the entrance to the guild ship would be located on the planet it is orbiting, Such as a mission terminal that has a list of the guild ships located in orbit.

Leaving other items off the guild ship such as the normal mission terminals, class trainers, FP an Ops entrance, would keep Fleet alive.
Allowing the same items you can have on your personal ship, personal cargo hold, guild bank, GTN, mail box, etc.
Being able to get to the guild ship from your personal ship would be tricky do to people switching guilds, maybe a different terminal that allows you to travel to your guild ship if your guild has one.
There are a lot of other great ideas that I have looked at in forums. They are not my own so I will not relist them.
I feel that a guild ship would help guilds work together, and would also be a good way to break up the daily grind of the game.

Give us guild ships or instanced housing, Do it you'll make more money in the long term with each guild wanting a ship.

Things like a guild bank, training dummies, mailbox, some vendors and perhaps a ship terminal to dock at, would be nice.

But I'd hate to see everyone with a guild holed up on their own guild ship. The Fleet isn't even terribly busy as it is now
Honestly a GTN Terminal and Class Trainers would not hurt to be on said Guild Ship. Since you can unlock a GTN Terminal for your own ship and purchase Holographic Class Trainers.

As for the Fleet. Im not sure what Server youre on. But on Jedi Covenant Im shocked to see Fleet with anything less then 130 players. Its a lagfest and difficult to go about your business when youre there. I actually go down to the Cartel Hanger to do business because its less laggy down there compared to everywhere else on Fleet.

I seriously doubt Guild Ships would make that much of a large impact on Fleet activity considering that youd still have to go to Fleet for PvP/Ops/FPs, Crafting Trainers, Basic, Classic, Elite and Ultimate Vendors, PvP Vendors and looking for PuGs.

What Guild Ships would do is create a gathering place for Guilds themselves. Establish a secondary location to mingle/place items on the GTN, a lauchpad for Guild Events and for those organized enough to have Guild Meetings. It would lighten the load on Fleet and give Bioware the opportunity to establish new content that would promote and establish Guilds as the Community building hubs that they are.

I would spend so much money for a guild capital ship. Not that I want it to be a direct purchase... but if you could spend a crazy amount of credits I would buy hypercrates and sell them off along with my soul so my guild could buy the biggest and baddest capital ship.

We average 172 (I've seen as many as 4 instances) ppl per instance on The Harbinger up on the Fleet.. if your Fleet is dead you should consider changing servers.. a bit pricey per character though. Also a lagfest here, more so than Jedi Covenant as that was my old server, which I left due to Jedi Covenants fluctuating population.
