Gathering crew skills - gather to cargo hold

Please put in a "gather to cargo hold" function. Companions can already craft items from materials stored in the hold, why can't they automatically deposit athered materials there, too (space permitting)? I can understand active companion / in-the-field gathering going to inventory, but companions going out on gathering missions should be able to gather to the hold.

I've wondered the same thing since the beginning...

I could understand if I told my current pet to craft something, they return to me when they're done. They could bring the item back with them.

When I tell my crew back on the ship to craft stuff, how are they teleporting the items straight into my pockets?

Also, can we store crafting materials somewhere else - not in inventory we have now. Implement some kind of specialized crafting item/materials inventory department where these items are stored automatically.

Nah, that's inspiration to buy more Bank slots.

I have 1 Bank tab entirely dedicated to crafting materials, lol

Galaxies used to do special belts that did not have combat abilities. They were even crafted per specilization for to support crafters. They then held special equipment like crystals etc. Could be nice for crafters.

You could also add an extra cargo hold only for crafting materials so it goes there by default. I would love that also personally.

I'd like to add an suggetion to this for gathering and mission skills at 400, make it so that you can send your crew out for a set amount of time for a type and grade of material, every few minutes it does a roll to see if they have found anything and how many they have found. So you can set your crew to gather underworld metals grade 3 for 10 hours and at the end of that time they return with about the same as if you had spent all that time recycling the crew member on the missions.

Make a "collectibles" tab where all your mats get stacked into a nice convenient area and you got yourself a deal.

(Yes, I'm pulling a page from GW2 because it's a really great system for mats.)
