3 Stronghold Ideas

I used to really want a ship stronghold. A cruise liner is a great idea, especially if it was neutral enough to be decorated either really fancy, completely derelict, or anything in between.

They teased us about a new stronghold with this expansion but I guess it's on the backburner.
Which is fine... there are so many bugs to patch...

I have to admit, I'm still really angry at the devs.
So many times they've created decorations with duplicate names, causing numerous problems.
And then they rarely fix it... years later.
They're still doing it.
How basic is it to check existing deco names before making a new one? Isn't that STEP ONE?

Not to mention the basic stronghold features they broke with this latest update.

Now doesn't seem like a good time for them to add anything. It'll be too buggy to enjoy.

I know that at the time of writing this, the Alderaan SH is about to come out but I had this idea for a Stronghold that is a village. I have no idea what planet this would be on, but I personally don't think a planet needs to be named and this Stronghold can just be called 'Abandoned Village'.

The setting is at the dead of night with a full moon high in the sky. A light fog covers the area while a low-walled village with several buildings and narrow streets rests at one end of the playable map and the remaining playable map is covered in a spooky forest. I was thinking the map would be 1/3 village and 2/3 forest. A creek runs through the map somewhere. It is as wide and deep as the creek that runs through the Rishi SH map. The playable map area is surrounded by this spooky forest. Birds caw in the night and there are inhuman distant groans if you listen hard enough.

While in the forest, you'll here faint whispers like the ones you'll here in Jedi and Sith temples/tombs within the game already.

The village has a low wall surrounding it, every building is house sized and can be entered, one or two centerpiece hooks, and one spaceship hook. I am not going to list how the hooks are set up anywhere else because that would be ridiculous but I think a 'spooky scary' village and forest SH would be interesting.

I would like to have Oricon as Stronghold I'm tired of the stronghold that are on the light side of the force
La paix est un mensonge, il n'y a que la passion. Par la passion, j'ai puissance. Par la puissance, j'ai le pouvoir. Par le pouvoir, j'ai la victoire.
Par la victoire, je brise mes chaines. La Force me lib้rera.

Space Station - A good sized space station with three levels, two hangars with starship hooks and one hangar with a centerpiece hook (in addition to other hooks in the hangars), multiple rooms of various sizes most of which have windows/ a window, and an large observation area on top (third level). All floors are accessed by stairs. The space station could be near a pulsar or something else spectacular in space.

Spira - A planet mostly covered in water with numerous islands and island chains dotting the planet. Here, the stronghold would be a luxurious mansion right on the beach of a private island. The rest of the island is about the size of the Yavin 4 SH and is covered in tropical flora. Unsure of what else may be on the island. Landing area? The time setting would be midnight, which is something different from the the other strongholds to date.

Luxury Cruise Liner - A fancy space cruiser for the rich and elite traveling through space. (If we can have a train SH traveling across a planet, we can have a ship traveling through space in a Star Wars game) A cruise liner with at least three decks, including an engine room and bridge, with multiple rooms of various sizes with windows/ a window. Very fancy looking. All floors are accessed with an elevator.
While the Spira and Luxury Cruise Liner both have merit … I have also suggested the space station.

Here are a few thoughts to add to yours regarding that idea:
***Space Station Type***
A. Location: My personal thought on this would be to initially locate it on the outer rim. This might work well with the current story and fit well with the past stories whether LS or DS. ALSO … as a possible suggestion it should be considered to be able to relocate what sector of space (based on current map) to relocate to for a "nominal charge either in CC or credits".
B. Design features
This station should have:
1. An over all design style on the interior that simular to the "City in the Clouds" from Star Wars "The Empire Strikes Back". Development would use their discretion to design as needed or desired .. just make it fun and unique !
2. At least one observation deck to view the open stars around us … This would be a great view from a "clear domed area in the center top or bottom … that gives a breath taking view of space. This would be a real challenge for the team.. but IMO … worth it ! Design MIGHT include a loading dock for player ship.
3. Larger than Manaan … probably somewhat like Nar Shaddaa … with a few more rooms attached to the central focal point of each floor. .. THREE floors perhaps … PLUS the spectacular view from the observation deck.
