You have two options, both based on the fact that Nar Shadda has a cross faction GTM.
Wait, so the "Galactic Trade Network" is actually Planetary in nature? Why isn't it a single auction system no matter where you access it from?

Not Planetary.... Faction specific.

But Slaign said that the Nar GTN is not faction specific, which would indicate that it does not share the same database as the others. Is the Fleet GTN distinct from the Coruscant/Kaas ones too?

There are 3 GTNs. Empire, Republic, and Black Market (Neutral, Nar Shaddaa). If you are not on Nar Shaddaa, you are accessing your faction's GTN.

They really need to just make it so you'll never get a recipe for the opposite faction.

I'm sure hardly anybody knows about the neutral GTN so thats really not a viable solution

At first people wont be using the neutral faction GTN but in a short time that will be the main one. I would rather make gear to sell to the whole game rather then just my faction. And Id be glad to have recipes used by the other side.

Wrong. I've gotten about 5 schematics for Imperial classes only and 2 actually usable by the Republic.

I would tweak the suggestion. I don't care if you make the armor faction specific but do us a favor.

Imperial items only for imperials. Republic items only for people playing Republic.

That way I am not sitting there with a bag full of really great items.... that are entirely useless to me, and everyone in my guild. Crafting should encourage trade but nothing should encourage cross-faction trade.

Not likely to happen.
Look at WoW for an example.
Most AH use is for ones own faction. About the only time the Neutral AH is used, is when transferring stuff from one faction to the other, or trying to sell faction specific items to the other faction.

This +1

I have 3 schematics for armormech and ALL of them are for republic classes, and I'm empire. Either I'm THAT unlucky or there is something terribly wrong here...

That clarifies a few things, not such a big deal now but still we shouldnt be getting cross faction schematics THAT often, I've gotten 4 republic / 0 empire ones for armormech on my sith warrior... sucks...
