Ok, this is my thread.

The Empire fleet is freaking gorgeous. There are NPCs walking around, theres a large rotating dias in the middle with shelves that glisten and shimmer, the different areas filled with flags, and talking sith lords. Troopers guard the vendors and giant assault droids guard the trainers. Hell, there are even holographic trees.

The Republic fleet looks like a garage. It is brown and filled with what appears to be Minority Report themed lipstick ads. The middle is a large brown tower with a facial ad on it, with poorly modeled tents surrounding it, none of which are actually over anything. There are booths with no npcs in them, and 2-3 small Twi-lek holograms being watched by an npc or two, none of which move or talk. The cantina band is almost silent. The trainer compartments and GTN and dead. Empty, the npcs are all stationary, the lights and railings are again, brown. Brown and yellow lights are everywhere. Then right in the middle of it all there is a small glimmer of hope, a pond like ecosystem.

Bioware you obviously didnt have time to finish the republic fleet. Please, in 1.2 add some life and color to the Republic center hub. Its astounding to me that my empire character gets his quests and visits the GTN in disneyworld, and my Republic 50 accepts his quests from a Southwest Airlines hanger.

Please Bioware, you're my only hope.

1.) The Republic Fleet Center - 2 Cargo Holds

1.) The Empire Fleet Center Rotating dias - 4 cargo holds

2.) Republic Brown poorly modeled tents

2.) Empire Cantina

3.) Huge, empty Republic Hallways

And Finally, the one saving grace to the Republic Fleet. Our Super Awesome Fountain.

So now, it is fairly obvious the Republic Fleet is either an unfinished area, or was MEANT to look like a homeless shelter. Please Bioware, devote the time to our faction, and the imbalance might not be so bad.

Before Anyone comments on it, I left my UI on to show the Republic and Empire Fleet player numbers.

Problem is we are poor in the Republic, we spend our money on guns and stuff and care little about our tents

Wow, I like the Republic Fleet a lot better. I had no idea it was like that. I'm serious, I'm not trolling. It just looks like it is nowhere near as cluttered, and is easier to navigate. The whole point of the fleet to me is a place to go to vendors, pick up dailies, and get groups for FP's. It's not a place I want to hang out all day because of aesthetic reasons

If you look at the two hallways, they are the exact same floor model, except ours is poo brown and theirs has trees and droids.

Explain to me why Bioware would conciously decide to make their fleet more detailed?

Because Bioware likes the Empire.

I happen to like the republic fleet. The republic cares more about the people rather than spending money on fancy buildings and cantinas.

This makes sense, because we were invaded and had coruscant sacked, but it doesnt explain the lack of npcs and animation.

All the random droids and trees and stuff do make it more cluttered, whether you want to believe it or not, especially combined with the sheer amount of Empire players (on my server fleet is usually near 300 or more) It's not a fun place to look at. It's a get what I came for and get the hell out kind of place.

Are you this desperate to keep 2 to 1 imbalance?
