There's been a lot of whining about the lack of a starship hook on Coru/DK. And to be fair, I do understand (to a point) why people want them, especially at 1mil for a balcony, which is entirely unnecessary.

The problem is one of size. Centerpiece hooks are nice, but they're also something like 1/4 the size of a starship hook. That dinky little taxi landing pad you get on Coru/DK simply aren't big enough for a starship. That, and I'm sure there's some dev-fiction about capital planet regulations about where people are allowed to land ships. An ion-backwash starship engine would be a highly fatal thing to have sprayed all willy-nilly over residential towers.

Tatooine has a nice big open space for a ship. From what I saw on the PTS, there's room for two, the other goes into an underground ship bay. NS has one and you can place that immediately (if you have the ship, that is). And for those outrageous stronghold prices, they should.

Most people don't follow the forums, streams or other blogs to find out if a single decoration can/can't be placed in a stronghold. You would expect that decorations can be placed in any stronghold unless explicitly stated otherwise.

The best way is to provide a floor plan of a stronghold when you buy it showing what hooks are available and where.

To the OP, talk with the customer service.
Totally agree

I think it would be fair to say that owning a stronghold and buying a ship that you could place in there would be something must customers would "assume" possible, even though you as a buyer are 100% resposible for buying the ship

IMO decorations should have a 24 hr return policy to see if you could actually use them or not, specially the mighty expensive ones, expecting everyone to be fully aware of everything that goes on in this game is not only naive but bad customers support

But you should really know this by now, and lower your expectations accordingly.

Not true, the more compele your stronghold is the more % bonus you gain on conquest points, with all 4 strongholds owned and 100% complete you get a 100% bonus on Conquest points (pre multiplier value)

They said a long time before that only Nar shaddaa and Tatooine had hooks for ships !!!

If you had done some research on the fansite or saw the official SWTOR twitch showing the stronghold you would know !!!

Good thing I read this thread then.

I feel very sorry for the OP, though. I too am unable to devote my time reading up on every scrap of info on every single little detail on this game, and other games.

Granted, the ship decoration does say starship hook, but the serious lack of information at the stronghold kiosk telling you what you can and cannot place is truly dreadful.

You can easily tell Bioware saw the huge success of Wildstar's housing project, and they scrambled like headless chickens to implement a somewhat reasonable, but sorely lacking, system of their own.

I sill love both my DK and Coruscant homes, but at least now I know not to invest in make 3 ships. Just one for my Nar Shaddaa home.

And why is the NS landing pad SO far out of view like that? When I zone in, and turn around, I wanna see the pad THERE on the horizon, not down below at the risk of falling off of my sky palace. Raise the damn thing at zoning in level.
