OK, I know DK is supposed to be DS gloomy and scary. However, my Imperial characters are LS traitors. I really want to make an affluent comfortable home for them. No black and red, just a home. Any ideas.

Well, there are a few ways to brighten it up.

Plants, using zakuul themed furniture or Jedi themed, they tend to be brighter. Voss furniture (wood and fabric), lots of artworks. There are carpets that are not black and red. A pretty set of artwork is available on the cartel market ah-the Arselin Masterpieces, I think it's called. They go on sale fairly regularly. The Life Day decos are very cheerful, I don't know if any are available this time of year but it's possible. Big fan of the fireplace from last year myself. Some of these might be hard to obtain but they are out there. Look around Tor Decorating, visit Strongholds and tour, lots of ideas there. Good luck

My entryway has the Voss theme going on 😆 I really love them. I really want curtains!

It might also help to think of what your character does in his home.

He could have a robotics lab or science research center.
He might have a room of his favorite trophies and memorabilia.
Does he have a room full of plants with water for his favorite pets?
Would he have a secret Light Side shrine (Jedi-themed) in a back room?
If he entertains guests, you might build a bar using some of the cantina set pieces.

Actually my saga family is using it. They have a wide array of talents. The idea I have is that they use their status and wealth to covertly undermine the Imperial value system.

DK is actually my favorite stronghold. Love the moodiness and like Coruscant, you spawn in to one of the best rooms to put stuff.

Its only drawback is that there is no spaceship pad.

There are two ways around that, if I may. There is a room with a large force field on the first floor, that looks like a garage? Or the pad on the balcony. What I did was put in a Starship deco. They're fighters, fit on large hooks, but I just go with 'private shuttle to my ship/quick escape route' RP wise. I have an Imperial one parked on my DK balcony and a Republic one in my Rep side apartment's garage. Not exactly a proper ship, but a doable alternative. You can put them in other rooms, sure, but I wanted to give a realistic possibility of using them.

I can see why they didn't add a starship pad on the Planetary Capitals, since you have a perfectly good Spaceport and I would imagine Traffic Control would not favor Starships landing at private homes. Even on DK, I would think they'd prefer not to have Sith buzzing the buildings. The actual starships I just put in my larger SH's. But if you want a ship, that might be a solid alternative.

That's a great idea, thanks!

Here are some vehicles that add interesting flavor to the DK/Coruscant landing pads:

* Czerka Enforcer -- Law enforcement vehicle, complete with blinking lights.
* Czerka Commuter -- A taxi that actually says "TAXI" in Aurebesh on the hood.
* Czerka Executive Cruiser -- Has the Czerka logo on the hood.

These look like space-worthy shuttles or small fighter craft:
* Corellian Stardrives
* Kalakar Simulators
* Rendili SF-3
* Vondell Ruby

Of course, having a Walker or tank (Avalanche, Behemoth, Landslide, Titan, etc.) on your pad advertises your military power.
