Better yet just take the hooks out of the decorating. Allow free form decorating (such as SWG) and therefore the hooks would not be a problem. There was still a limit of how much you could place but the free form decorating made it easier for people to get the look they wanted and the decorations would be easier to place and use since you wouldn't be restricted to a certain hook for a certain decoration.

Get Moving DEVS! It is long past time SH's got some real love. No adding a new SH doesn't count, the entire hook system is a mess, not to mention the lighting effects are NOT GOOD. It's time for the for the SH people to put on the big kid pants and kill it.

Yeah! You want my money, BioWare? Because that's how you get my money.
Stronghold system upgrades + SH bug fixes + new decos + new places to put them = $$$WIN$$$


Meanwhile, decos are on sale but there's no point in buying them, as there's no place to put them.

Please God no! Manaan doesn't need a bigger deco cap!
Going from 650 to 800 was a mistake, imo. It was difficult enough getting 650 down in a coherent way without it looking like a junkyard. Someone here once said, " Hoarders paradise", and they were right!
I think an extra 50 would be perfect for Coruscant and Dromund Kaas, but that's it.
From 350 to 400 would be nice though.

This post perfectly articulates so many of the fundamental issues I have been experiencing with Strongholds over the past several years. I want to commend the OP for putting in the time and thought in writing something I have found myself too frustrated to even attempt. I seriously hope this reaches the attention of the Devs. I agree with absolutely everything that was said. It's too late for me to offer my own input, so I'm going to save that for the next chance I have to share my thoughts on all the excellent points made by the OP.

The biggest problem with Manaan is there are so many "small" green areas to cover. Look how many line both sides of the fountain areas at the entrance.. and by the time anyone covers all of those it actually takes away from the rest of the surrounding scenery.

OH ! BTW.. in covering the little green squares... it counts just as much percentage wise as droping a large or center piece item in place. Many of those center piece items are not easy to come by. IMO ... in ANY SH if you drop a center piece or large item in place the VALUE of that item should be a little more significant to the over all % of the SH completed.

The one thing I was hoping for was a space station based SH with an interior design which would be a reflection of the city in the clouds from Star Wars "The Empire Strikes Back".

Also as someone else has already mentioned: too many of the items available just don't fit in surrounding like Manaan (or in Nar Shaddaa for that matter).

Additionally OP has a number of statements that really should be looked into more carefully. There's some good information in there.

I do want to thank them for the improvements to the centerpiece hooks. I noticed that when you have a centerpiece (not starhook) hook they have some more hooks on top of it. I can now use the centerpiece cantina bar decoration and add people at the bar.

So thank you.

It would work if they would have added a undersea building on both sides of the underground area where you could walk along side of the outside.
