I can't understand how 'pirate town" translates to "slum." It seems like there are other parts they could have used even in Raiders' Cove. I spent some time wandering around Raiders' Cove again today. You do have the slum area that looks like the stronghold but you also have:

Lots of very neat and clean buildings that are not made out of pieces of scrap metal.

Most of the boardwalk is also neat and clean, even if the buildings look scrappy. No flies or piles of garbage everywhere.

Can we put the arguing on hold for a bit until we actually see what they are going to do and then we can argue and fuss again at them?
A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. A girl should also always be a lady even when arguing. If you like redheads click my Referral link Referral: http://www.swtor.com/r/VkfKqj

Lol, I like this idea. Really, we can argue until we're blue in the face, it's a matter of taste and perception so no one is really right or wrong. I'm eager to see what they plan on adjusting. I have my hopes, of course, but I don't know what kinds of changes are on the table, or even options.

Part of it is a pirate town, sure, but there are plenty of other parts that aren't. It's a tropical setting and people have been asking for a tropical resort for years. I'm pretty sure people didn't want Rishi cause of its piratey-ness (is that a word? well it is now) but because they desired a warm, sunny, tropical climate for a vacation home. It seemed unlikely that they would give us Rakata Prime, because it only exists in a flash point, but if it were possible to get Rakata Prime, that would've been so much better, but for me, I was trying to be reasonable, by requesting tropical property that already existed as a world.
Manaan is not much more than a flashpoint and they made a stronghold out of that. I think if you want a tropical beach resort type stronghold, you should keep pushing for Rakata Prime. Just be sure to inspect all areas of the FP first and make sure there aren't things you dislike about it and weren't expecting.

Oh yeah forgot about that. Thanks PennyAnn You're probably right, if they could do it for Manaan, they should be able to do it for Rakata Prime. I like pretty much all of it, except for Revan's leaning skyscraper. The planet is very pretty, but it would require a decent house for decorating.

That would solve most of the hook problems in ALL of the strongholds. I would literally jump for joy if this happened.

I hope these waves and ocean sound FX make their way to Manaan.

Or Copero, lol. Again, biased. My one concern with Rakata Prime is that there really aren't any buildings that would make nice residences. I'd assume we'd get another temple and we have that on Yavin, which I don't think makes a very good home since there are no closing doors and rubble on the floor. So that would be my concern with Rakata Prime. I don't think we'd end up with a resort type stronghold.

Anyway, that's kind of beside the point in this thread, but I guess it also gives the devs food for thought so still a little relevant.

Don't forget about the train SH...that only exists as a FP as well.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Yeah, exactly. Besides I live in a resort town ... and if not for all the maintenance folks it would (and does) look an awful lot like the current Rishi SH.

So next Rishi SH version .. same thing except for more hooks for mandatory cleanup crew. :P

Lol, I can see it now, we'll end up with a cleanup crew that wanders around the place, picking up garbage.
