See everyone thinking the same. Think the room with the waterfall inside it could have been so much cooler but the hook problem ruins it for me. Dunno just feels all a bit more filler than the tatooine one. IMHO the tatooine one is still the greatest apartment ever. I really just use the top balcony floor but it's so cool looking out over the sandcrawlers in the distance. Love it.

I used the basement for that purpose. While it's obviously not going to be as flashy as a NS minicasino because of the darkish Y4 theme, it's one of the few rooms where the hook layout is semi-conducive to having a cantina of sorts (having a lounge outside over the waterfall doesn't hurt either).

I do wish that there were more large hooks. As it is there are only two rooms (main foyer and basement) with sufficient large hooks to truly decorate the way I want. I had to forego having a workshop entirely--the cave might have been a good place to have one if it had more hooks--and just barely got away with having a medcenter in one of the sanctuaries (the one without the centerpiece hook in it).

Darrien's Vacation Retreat on BC if you want to have a look at what I've done with it. Of course, he's a Sith Warrior so the darkness is appropriate for him.

I'm fairly certain that the AWESOME ARTISTS that delivered such a BREATHTAKING scenery want to kill whoever ruined their hard work with the haphazard hooks.

Especially in the whole open range outside... poverty hooks! The cave? I could spend my gaming time just strolling around there. I wanted to make it a secret shrine to Revan, complete with its ancient Star Map... only... there's like two centerpieces and three medium hooks on the floor, three medium walls, and... end of story! What the hell? You can't even put vines or moss in there! Not one single hook in front of the hauntingly beautiful giant jedi head!

Same for the basement, I would so have crowded the ceiling with vines... descent into darkness. Haunted house style... cave of visions as for Luke on Dagobah... this one, with the big round head, symbolizes the dark side for me, the netherworld. While the one above it has daylight and crystal-clear pure water pouring in from the heavens and creating life... see where I'm going...

By the way I went through a lot of trouble reuniting a party of companions to become holos of Revan's companions: Mission Vao with Bowdaar, Bastila, HK-47, Canderous Ordo, Carth, T3-M4... brought to you by Vette, Bowdaar, Pierce, Kira etc and a little makeup.
I'm glad I resisted my urge to spend my last coin on super expensive "official" suits for them before testing it: IT DOESN'T WORK! They all reverted to their default skins as on GSH day one. There, Carth, sport your dreadlocks. Nice imperial uniform, Canderous. Oh you have a beard now?

Also what's with the main square bloated with centerpieces? Are we supposed to stack 9 Grand Statues there? Or dish out the same ruin corners 9 times? I could really use some of those big hooks a few feet from there, on the grass... by the second starship hook, especially. But no. There's... the Fury, and a swoop bike.

So long story short: PLEASE ADD NEW HOOKS. Don't add more hook allowance, just inject more interactable terrain.


Thank you

And hats off to the graphic artists, YOU ROCK!

Be nice when you change floor style to large it adds the small tiles has well so u can put units/personal decorate down, instead of just a blank large floor tile.

Nice idea but one problem, when they add more hooks it may mess up the decorations in the stronghold and this stronghold doesn't have a room reset it has a reset that resets the whole stronghold. You may not mind it resetting your decorations or messing them up, but there are those like me that have finished their Yavin stronghold and do not want it messed up or reset.
