It would be awesome to get steampunk/vintage themed mount that emits Harley-like sound. Maybe some kind of hover chopper.

Why not? They can make it other players to hear muted/no sound from other players.

Because, and I really hope you understand the following four words:

THIS. IS. STAR. WARS.

Do you understand? Steampunk and Harleys do NOT belong here. That is NOT Starsy or Warsy. It is not something you find a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.

Get it?

First, I suggest you chill off and start with changing you tone and stop ordering around, especially when you don't have any power. It's a good rule for life too.

Second, there are quite a lot of things is starwars that already sound and look like steampunk / old machnery. Just look at C2-N2 droid. Or XS starship? Just because it doesn't venting steams doesn't mean it's not steampunk-themed.

So please stop being so closed minded and act like you know better how this game should look like. Because you're not. It's maybe your oppinion, but nothing more than that.

There are plenty opportunities to create good mount within the same theme as C2-N2 droid and just add some chopper sound instead of boring sound for all mounts. Nothing wrong with a bit of old-fashion paintings within starwars palette.

C2 is not steam powered. He runs on an Ion Power cell! The XS Freighter is a precursor to the Falcon series starship! It's supposed to look like that!

This is not a case of open or closed minds. This is you simply not understanding genres. Steampunk is a genre involving the continuation of the Steam powered technological advancements combined with the fashion and lifestyle of early to mid Victorian nobility. Steampunk does not visit outer space, they are content with living in the atmosphere. You are twisting genres, and that never pans out well.

This is Star Wars. It has a set theme of Science Fantasy. That is the theme. That is the genre.

And where did I say to add steampunk mounts? I say "steampunk themed". C2 is not steampowered (I've never said that) but it does look just like one of the steampunk robots. He can run on dark materia or blood of the virgings and still look like steampunk robot.

You seems to have some problems with word "steampunk". Again - I was not asking for steampunk mounts (read my first post again if you need to). I was asking to add more old-mechanics-like mounts (more like this istead of futuristic like this) and just called it "steampunk / vintage themed" for the sake of simplicity.

Steampunk theme is still Steampunk. And it STILL has no place in Star Wars. It does not belong here.

You argue for the sake of arguing?
I've said "steampunk themed" just to point in general direction of desired design. I'm sure if devs will be willing to implement proposed feature they'll do it in their way. So please stop from wasting everyone time picking on words.

/facepalm

No, I'm arguing that everything has it's place. Steampunk does NOT belong in space. That's why Steampunk uses Airships and floating fortresses and has no moon bases or starships.
