Works for you but we wanted to work together on it so doesn't work for us. This is our first game we have played together and wanted to share the decorating.

Thanks I haven't had a chance to review that today.

You could try making a suggestion for a change to the key system where in you are allowed to give out one gold key to your stronghold(s).

Thanks might be a good idea.

Wait what? Horse color doesn't matter a bit in racing... and what do horses have to do with anything?

Are you trying to insinuate that a game that has brown horses (the most common and easily obtained color of horse out there) as lower level mounts while a white horse is a higher level mount is racist or something? Because A) that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard (especially because there's a good chance a black horse mount would be faster AND have fire coming out of its nostrils) and B) it's so irrelevant it has no bearing or whether or not there are any ultirior motives behind the development of any game ever made.

If that wasn't a really weird attempt to invoke racism, I have absolutely no idea what you're on about, and wish I had a picture of a bunny with a pancake on its head to express my bewilderment.

P.S. If you're trying to say that having a progression model that simultaneously gives players something to strive for and acts as a credit sink is some kind conspiratorial ultirior motive... well, let's just say some people see conspiracies everywhere, and leave it at that.

No Barn or Stable for animal mounts?

So make them all as expensive as Tatooine and Nar Shadaa and we're good, yeah?

New droids on the crew skill section of the fleet that will take crafting components and craft decorations
I started watching at some point after this was mentioned. Does this mean that "crafted" decorations are merely purchased with crafting materials instead of actually using any of the crafting skills? Or is this in addition to the crafting options that we're going to get?

Yeah, achievements will kick in more as you work your way to 55. You should have some now though. The day they were implemented, I remember several unlocking right after I logged in so double check. Nevertheless, it isn't hard to rack them up fast.

They didn't really elaborate on the point, but I would assume you craft components and then use those as some sort of currency to trade for completed directions. So you likely aren't going to be waiting an hour+ for a companion to do a crew mission. Thats my assumption, anyway.
