even an SWG type of customization for ships would be awesome, let me give u a example... like the look of the armor you are wearing? np.. drop it on the ground. /move forward 100.... /move up 100.. /move right 20... BAM armor suit on the wall! like collecting fluff?, or all the weapons you collected and liked the look of... your first colour crystals? up on the walls and roofs too! however you want them to be, some people... myself included. enjoy this type of immersion. if you dont like it you dont have to take part. how are ideas like this bad?

It depends on the idea and the person.. I think chat bubbles are a bad idea.. I fail to understand the concept that chat looking like comic strip adds to immersion.. But that is me.. I just hope they make an option to turn it off.. Otherwise the majority of the gaming community is going to be upset..

I have seen player housing on SWG.. Essentially it is an education on the slums.. Empty houses just littering the landscape.. Who wants to look at that?? There is just absolutely no need for player housing like that when there are much better alternatives.. Like your ship..

Another idea that has been brought up is instanced housing.. Similar to how our ships hangers work.. We would be instanced into our own little apartment type place on our capital world.. No world space required.. I'm sorry.. I for one don't want the landscape littered with player housing.. It is just a bad idea.. I am not alone in this..

So.. That is how ideas like this are bad..
Who is the more foolish? The fool or the fool that follows him?

Hey ISDcaptain,

I forwarded this along to our Lead Designer, Damion Schubert, and this is our current statement on Player Housing:

Were not saying never, but its not on our immediate roadmap. If we were to expand on this in some direction, we would first focus on improving the degree that players can customize their ship interiors, but even that feature is a ways down the road.

Still loving the ramped-up participation. Even if it's "bad" news. Thanks!

I never bothered with a house on swg, i found it a waste of time to be honest, what bioware should be doing instead of adding in useless crap like houses, is to fix all the problems they created, bring us the heroic combat they talked about and the whole 'use any spec with any companion and not feel like you made a mistake' thing they talked about.

All gaming is a waste of time, adding housing is another feature which some players will be able to utilise to improve and fulfill their gaming experience.

Thank you. I would pay a year sub up front for more options to the ships, and more ships in general.

Happier than a wookie on a nude beach for doors to the personal room, usable beds to sleep in with an emote, chairs, and new ships in general, I opt out on the jedi fish ship for the Corellian light XS Freighter any day of any month.

And there you have it.

IF this ever gets done, redecorating the inside of ships COMES FIRST.


Its a polite way of saying "never say never, but this is as close to never as I can get".

Really? I read it as "We have time for f+++ naught atm, but we know you guys would like it. Never say never."
I don't want a ship, I want a house. Write that down, Damien.

Your ship is your house. and you should be great full it was free too. Wanna buy a house? with the game-economy that will be a 10million credit down payment, if you want a door, thats another 80k.
