After playing the Manaan flashpoint it got me thinking that we could really use a under water stronghold, I was thinking that it should have two levels a upper level which consists of surface above the water where you can station your personal starships, and a underground level, where you can station a submarine with the surrounding marine life swimming around your glass interiors

Here are some ideas for strongholds:

And look at this indoor under water patio:

Here is what an under water bedroom would look like:

Lore wise, Manaan would not work for Strongholds.... however... if you were to say.. make it on the Mon Cal/Quarren home world.. that might be better.

Manaan would definitely work for Strongholds? Why not you even get the Submersible as a Speeder :P

I for one would love to see a Manaan Stronghold. It's as plausible as any other.

And sure you've got the "crushing depth's" to worry about...

In the Flashpoint you escape in the very same looking submersible, so overall very possible:
Plus Manaan being a neutral world - Highly possible they'd outfit it to high buying customers.

Tis a trade world after all.

The only trade is on the surface. You need special permissions to go below a certain depth. They closed off the world long ago to outsiders and only recently opened up that one city above to trade with the galaxy to aid themselves. They're not going to allow the galaxy to suddenly "move in" and build homes all over the place.

Yes, but its all the same building, so its only 1 home really. Not unreasonable to get permission for that.

If Manaan stronghold looked like that I would sell my real house and buy any amount of CC to unlock the whole stronghold.

You do realize that there are, lore wise, only eight characters in SWTOR? i.e. there aren't ten thousand members of the Dark Council, or untold legions of Cipher Nines, or half a million smugglers who took the Esseles to Coruscant?

i.e. They wouldn't have to allow a galaxy to move in, they would only have to allow eight people to build a private stronghold at (presumably significant) cost.

Otherwise, how is is possible for thousands of people to have EXACT same view of Kaas City as I do?

If Manaan does not work then the Mon Calamari homeworld of Dac would, or even Kamino.
