Imperial Medical Droid Deco is not working. Was my main vendor next to my cargo holds. But he's not a vendor anymore.

This sucks.

Same for the Republic Medical droid

What was that about not changing CM items after release? The droids may not have green hair, but I liked them without that animation and spent those cartel market certificates on vendors, not on static decos stuck in a silly animation loop.

After 5 years you can't just simply change those decos. Either undo these changes ASAP or refund our CM certificates.
Add the new animated versions as separate decorations (don't forget to give them different names!)

Alternatively add the original versions for 1 credit to the botched CM items vendor in the cartel bazaar.
Let us sort our companion list and hide or kick out the unwanted ones!

Yes, please. I spent Cartel Market Certificates for Republic and Empire Medical Droid vendors. Especially in my Coruscant and DK Strongholds, with them being faction specific. Changing vendors to non-vendors isn't a fix; it's very, very frustrating. Please return the vendor functionality back to the Imp and Pub Medical Droids.

Hey all,

This is definitely a bug. Our aim was to address the missing animation, it is not intentional that the functionality changed. We will revert this change in our next update.

Thank you, Eric Musco! For the quick reply, and for stating that it was an unintended change. Much appreciation.

It is both Imperial and Republic droids that lost vendor functionality.

Great QA testing at Bioware... Beggars belief how this got through.

Please don't have the medical droid do his animation very often. Once in a while is nifty.
Constant looking is... weird. Just plain weird.

Thank you, but please also revise the animation. Don't let it loop constantly. The droids hyperactively looking left and right 24/7 is just annoying. Start it randomly every once in a while like some of the other personell decorations do. The rest of the time let them stand in their normal position (i.e. what we got used to in the past 5 years.)

For those of us with OCD, the new animation changes the way the droids can be used. They used to stare in one direction, now we need things for them to look at to their left and in front of them (looking right can be the display)
It could work with the ones I use as croupiers on my gambling tables, but the droid behind the greeting table in my Nar Shaddaa casino looks a bit paranoid and in need of a good memory wipe.

BTW: Now that you're fixing bugs nobody knew existed on 5 years old cartel market items, can we again have a talk about green hair that should be black?
