Is there a secret housing project?

I'd like to have a secret base on a asteroid for a house. Complete with a hanger for my ship and various NPC droids running around doing tasks. This could also shoe in new companion missions for housing items!

Well I'd use my ship more often than I'd use a House! Actually I probably would not use a house! So may be a few customisation options for Ships would be nice. although i think from the way they have been designed this is not possible.
Reading the Forum, just shows how stupid some people are. Which probably includes me for getting involved

I don't care for player housing, I wouldn't partake if offered, but think of the money they could make on the CM. 250 CC for a couch, 175 for a table/lamp combo. 1700 for a wardrobe to keep old gear.

Of course, EA being who they are, virtually nothing would drop in game to decorate your house with. It would all be purchased on the CM.
Hey everyone, there's a new boss in the Heroic 4 on Belsavis who drops an armoire or a really nice Sith lampshade! Let's FARM!

Um... no. There shouldn't be furniture or decorating drops from bosses even should they decide to let us decorate our ships (which I hope they do). When they eventually get to ship decoration, I'm guessing there will be some kind of credit exchange or use of reputation as an additional means to obtain decorations.

As to actual housing - given the nature of the timeline and condition of the planets, player housing just doesn't make sense. Most planets are at war (do you REALLY want an apartment in Corellia under seige, or in the Black Sun district of Coruscant?) and plopping down a house in the middle of a battlefield just doesn't fit in with the story at all.

I hate to be THAT guy, but I'd love something like what they did in SWG. BW could just create new areas separated from the main areas on planets like Alderaan, Tatooine, Voss, Tython, or Korriban and leave them open for players and guilds to purchase land to build their own player-owned towns. You could do so many awesome guild events and whatnot with guild towns.

To go hand in hand with housing or ship customisation they should also add trophys, crafted goods for decorations etc at the same time. No point in having a house if you cant add stuff in it.
Lord of the rings online have instanced housing which are currently pretty basic, in the way that you can only add certain items in certain positions in the house but they see the potential of it and later this year is a large housing improvement update in Lotro.
I don't think anyone will do a SWG level of housing (though wish they did) but something would be nice to call home.

It would be nice if we could get different ship models and/or rearrange the interior layout and items/decorations. To avoid having to do all the cutscenes again they could make it a requirement to finish your class story (probably have to complete the first mission in the Makeb chain too).

But yeah, I don't like the layout of some of the class ships and it would be nice to move things around or choose from alternate ship designs.

As for houses... Can I have my own moon? Or let my Smuggler lay claim to Port Nowhere please. Risha needs a place to plot and scheme.

Last I've seen any comment about it, they have no plans for player housing. See other comments in thread re: ship being similar to housing.

Its funny seeing ppl say 'your ship is your house' and 'we dont need houses in game' yet these are the same ppl that will own one if its put in game. housing has been a big part of game and yes, it can be done on this one. BW is just looking for the way to make money off it in the CM. Anything that we want to see will go in the CM so EA/BW can make money on it. We wanted new speeder we got it in the CM. we wanted more crystals we got it in the CM. Come on, just ask for stuff and it will come. "With a Price'

Here's how I see it -

The people opposed to Player Housing are really saying they're not going to spend money on this feature.

The people in support of Player Housing are really saying they would love to spend money on this feature.

Whose opinion do you think will carry more weight with EA/BW?

Once BW/EA figure out how to monetize a Player Housing system, you can bank on it coming to a Cartel Market/Personal Ship/Guild Capital Ship/Housing Planet near you.
