I'd like to see the Yavin Stronghold Floor hooks rearranged or added to, and a better plan for laying out floor hooks in the future.
If you like my stronghold threads such as this and this, please consider using my referral link. It will reward us both. Or you could post your support for one of my threads.

And moving them on the actual floor instead of half a foot above it.
Tune down reflections to pre 5.5 values!
Move inventory tabs back to the bottom!
Remove the blue glow from useable stronghold objects and decorations!

Agree with what Xina_LA says, especially #3. The introduction of Strongholds was monumental. I enjoy SHs nearly as much as any aspect of SWTOR. However, the holograms of companions belonging to other alts is way past time to resolve. It totally distracts from the immersion and realism.

1) Stop vehicles from making a "vrooom!" sound when someone approaches them. Even when I'm upstairs in my Corsuscant apartment, I hear a "vroom" sound for each vehicle, every time I move around.

2) Increase the volume of ambient sound machines by 100% and have them automatically on (click to turn off). Reduce the range over which Life Day fireplaces can be heard.

3) Do not make companions appear as holograms unless they are summoned and standing next to us. Don't make them holograms just because the owning player is away. An apartment full of holograms looks really strange.

4) Add a way to get to the starship landing pad on Nar Shaddaa apartments. I shouldn't have to use rocket boots and leap off the taxi to play with decoration layout. Make the walkway extend to the adjacent balcony, allow me to get there by clicking the taxi vehicle, whatever... just get me and my guests there more easily. I would much rather turn it into an outdoor park than place a starship there, but I can't do that if no one can reasonably reach it.

5) More themed NPCs, wildlife, and droids. For example, how about some gamblers for our casino tables, mechanics for our vehicles in the garage, chatting visitors, droids serving snacks, casual dancers, dignitaries, bounty hunters, apprentices, ace pilots, small pets that wander about, playing children, and so forth. (Is it just me or are there no child NPCs in the game? Are children illegal in public spaces?)

6) More interactive furniture. How about a dejarik table that plays the hologram of a game when clicked, combat dummies, a swimming pool, a dueling circle, wall art that changes slowly over time, a holographic greeter that plays a welcome message when clicked, a wall target we can actually shoot at, and so forth.

7) Arrangements that aren't just table/chairs, crates, or a vendor stall. For example, a small garden, dueling platform, group of training soldiers, music band on a low stage, small crowd/audience, patio BBQ set, etc. (It seems like most strongholds are just giant collections of seating areas! A stronghold should be more than a massive waiting room and trophy display.)

8) Make older decorations more readily available in a non-random way (IE: not a random furniture pack). Add them to the cartel market and/or give them to vendors. Also, please return the temple chairs.

9) Add many vendors. Felucia and the jawas are simply not enough. Crew skills vendors, stim vendors, etc.

10) More stronghold labels. Most of the themed ones came from long-gone cartel packs.

11) More variety of storage access items. For example, themed cabinets and shelves that give access to the cargo bay, legacy cargo bay, and guild storage.

12) Mission terminals. These could be themed and blend in. For example, a small terminal you put next to your starship hook that gives access to starfighter/space combat missions.

13) Add a terminal for accessing guild information that can be placed at guild strongholds.

14) Add more essential furniture items -- ceiling lights, rugs, "kitchen" items, and so forth. Anything that isn't another table or chair.

15) Your class ship as an automatic starship decoration, the same way we can access our companions and pets. If there is a place to land, why can't I land my own ship at my stronghold?

I'd like to make this a toggle, if possible. My basement is a command center filled with my alliance crew, and setting it up so they look like they're on active missions would be cool.

I'd also like to merge the personnel and companions tallies, as it's odd that I can have so many knock-offs who don't do anything, but I have more companions than I can have in one place.

GTN terminals shouldn't be hanging 1 meter above the floor

and NPCs like Theron and lana, or Sgt. Rusk and a republic soldier should interact and arguing with each other.

A lot of good ideas here. I especially agree with the ambient machines. I can barely hear the snowstorm one, and only if I turn my volume up max and squint my eyes while holding my breath. Also, the holo-companions really bugs me. I rarely put companions in my strongholds because of this. Sort of along the same lines - I purchased the Rishi Trader thinking maybe they'd be a vendor, what with having Trader in the name, only to be sorely disappointed. I don't even care what she has for sale, as long as she'd buy my junk, but rep items would be cool. And, yes - please, please, please more varied ceiling lights. I'm maxed out on the basic yellow ones, and because I have 3 strongholds right now, that means many rooms are left in the dark. I've checked the GTN but there really aren't a whole lot of options for bright ceiling lights.

Also, the Zakuulan armor/weapon displays only fit on the large hooks, but with their size they should be able to be put onto a medium narrow, at the least. Speaking of the large hooks, why the heck can't the objects move the full range of the hook area? I never really noticed it with big items, but with the Zakuulan displays, they can't be put against a wall because the range isn't far enough.

I'd also really love it if the "common" decorations you can buy for credits and such would have a better variety. Specifically, some pieces that actually look good in the Dromund Kaas strongholds. Second-hand space junk is fine for Nar Shaddaa and Coruscant, but looks really out of place in the shiny Dromund Kaas apartments.

That's all I can think of for now... To add some cheer to this post, check out my Dromund Kaas door monster.

Agree with the prior wishlists, and also:

Two decoration items the player can place anywhere they want in their stronghold!
-Entrance Spawn Point decoration item!
-Quick Travel Terminal decoration items!
