As in the title. It was already hard enough to fill up the original 650 Manaan hook count as it was, but after you've randomly upped the limit by 150 MORE hooks to fill, it's practically impossible. People are placing whatever they can and hiding it inside walls. To be honest, I have no clue why you've increased the objects limit in the only Stronghold that never needed it and no one requested it (as opposed to Guild Ships for example...)

So please, add a new room/level/section accessible from elevator so we have space to actually put some decorations in..... As I obviously assume decreasing the hook count at this point could cause serious technical issues (people suddenly having more objects already placed in then allowed). So I think this would be the best solution.

I have always asked them to make an underwater section, maybe.....

Alternatively, don't fuss about filling to 100%, since there's no real virtue in achieving 100%. (The conquest bonus no longer depends on decoration count, but instead solely on room-unlock count.)

Filling more hooks still counts toward personal prestige score, which results in a higher position on the listings for that particular SH. People are more likely to come and view SH's with the highest prestige and hooks-filled count.

If the OP's SH's are private, on the other hand, and can only be viewed by invitation, then there is no reason to push for 100%. I leave my Yavin SH virtually empty, and my Tatooine SH is mostly a repository for excess decorations I don't need (back from when conquest bonus DID depend on decoration count). Sometimes I make some minor changes here and there on a whim, but I no longer push to decorate them in the same way that I did my Coruscant, DK, and Nar Shaddaa SH's. I would like to eventually open my Manaan SH to the public, however, and people are more likely to notice it on the listings if it's in the first two listing pages. That requires a high prestige score and high hooks-filled count.

I'll stop fussing about reaching 100% when it stops being the primary sort and filter on the Stronghold kiosks.
As long as completion affects how many visitors I get, I'm going to sweat it.

There are several underwater areas visible from the lower level that have no hooks. A bunch of hooks there would be extremely helpful, especially Large hooks we can convert to smaller ones.

More rug hooks everywhere would help.

I would love it if they added a door from the upper level room and a walkway that reaches the landing pad. It helps realism and there could be several new outdoor hooks surrounding the platform and on the walkway.
