No, that would have been the logical thing to expect but instead you get to buy a decorative imitation that you can park there. Fluff...pixels...nothing more, just like the interior of your ship.

Coz, you know, that would have also caused us to expect them to make cut-scenes of us landing and taking off, thus also requiring to add logic for us to be able to skip going to the spaceport/orbital station to enter a hangar/shuttle. And making cut scenes is costly both time-wise and effort-wise. Not to mention the REAL money it costs to program them

On top of that, it is also totally unbelievable to have a space ship there... since that is parked in the hangar up in the orbital station/spaceport so how could it possibly be parked outside on the pad of your stronghold...
Every post you make seriously makes it sound like you truly hate this game and company so why are you still here paying them money?

Want to impress me, make one wall a TV wall and let us view Huttball games being played in real time, or replays of our older games that we have played.
You want to play a video game where you do nothing but control a character that sits on a couch and watches TV? I bet you can't wait for the next Sims- I mean SWTOR expansion pack where you can, wait for it....cook food and go to the bathroom, in real time. Sounds exciting.

Because if he doesn't pay them money, he can't tell us all how much he hates everything about the game and the company that makes it.

What is a bathroom? I don't think such things exist in the SW universe!!

That's ok because we've all got barbie doll anatomy so there's no way to expel the waste anyway.

Basically, you're just whining about things that you don't even know yet. Why don't you wait until release to figure out what they did/didn't do to suit your fancy?
You must have been distracted while watching the stream. It was pretty much said literally by Eric during the stream that this was the reason you wouldn't be able to.

As much as I would like to see only threads here how we all love the game and everything that gets added to the game is just what everyone wanted. Reality is different. Deal with it.

It is not functional, so you can't run up the ramp and enter your ship that way, but I think one of the options for your Stronghold's main entrance is to travel directly to your ship.
I want to highlight this post as everything DarthDymond said is correct. One quick clarification is that the option to travel directly to your ship is a subscriber only perk. Thanks!
