More like "it's not against our game design, but it's nowhere near things we actually want to do".

My ship is my ship. It takes me from A to B. My house is something on the ground, with walls and cool stuff and windows, in close proximity to other houses.

Totally different thing.

And by the time we get it, I'm sure I can afford it.

Absolutely NOT what I wanted to hear Courtney...but knowing that this isn't on your list of things to come, is good to know. Again, I'd so much rather have honesty than silence. THANK YOU!

That being said...you guys are making a HUGE mistake...it's by far one of the most engaging things you can add to an MMO. It gives players a connection to the world that simply playing it never could. I hope you revisit the idea soon'ish.
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

My referral code: here (what you get here)

We all have our opinions, but personally, like I have said before somewhere, I think focusing on player housing would be a mistake. Most people will tell you they hated it when the worlds seemed empty, when the fleet was empty. So, everyone hanging out in player housing....yeah, seems like a bad idea to me.

No worries. Keeping my money I'd otherwise invest in housing to myself then. BTW, your definition of 'not on our list of things right now" is hilarious indeed.

That's great! I love ships. Who needs some old stationary shack on some random planet on the edge of the galaxy.

Like others its not the answer I would have preferred but it doesn't surprise me either.

Thank you for the reply.
