Fleet Penthouse Stronghold Feedback

Here's a new set of feedback on the Carrick Station apartments (4/7) --

BUGS

* Interior View Side Room Music -- The ambient SH music doesn't stop. It plays at the same time as the casino music. If you start a Jukebox, it no longer stops the other sounds. Instead, you get all 3 tracks playing at the same time, at the same volume. (This worked before the latest patch but is now broken. Personally, I prefer the casino music with an override for an active jukebox, not ambient zone music.)

* All Hallways Wall Hooks Floating -- The angled Small Wall hooks are floating out away from the wall a bit, so anything put in there (especially trophies and flat things) look like they're floating.

* All Hallways Wall Hooks Angle -- The Small Wall hooks on one side aren't quite at the same angle as the wall, which looks very odd.

* Octagon (large) Room Lighting -- The center of the room has a spotlight with no visible source. If you place a light in the center Ceiling hook (even the brightest lights), it doesn't change the room lighting at all. In fact, the ceiling is so high, no ceiling lights provide illumination on the floor, only high on the walls, leaving the room in an odd twilight.

ISSUES

* Side Rooms Flooring -- Flooring hooks are not centered under Large Floor hooks. If I put an Arrangement: Basic Lounge in a Large Floor hook, I can't then center a rug underneath it without moving the furniture away from the wall.

* Octagon (large) Room Wall Hooks -- The Large Wall hooks are too high to use with utility and other interactive items, even if you switch it to two Medium Wall hooks and lower the deco (such as a wall GTN) as far down as it will go. Please switch this to be two Large Wall hooks, one above the other, so we can place decos both high and low.

SUGGESTIONS

* Main (first) Room Elevator Door -- Please switch the two Small Wall hooks over the door to the elevator area for a Medium Wall hook, so that we can use the Elevator Sign. It's a cool deco and there's no good place to put it in any SH.

* Ceiling of Hallway to Octagon Room-- Please add ceiling hooks, just like the tunnel to the spaceport in the Tatooine stronghold, so that we add light, FX, etc.

* Sides of Hallway to Octagon Room -- Please allow the side Small Floor hooks to combine into Medium Narrow hooks, so we can add lights, tech items, signs, etc.

* Station Exterior -- Please add some Starship hooks that convert into other arrangements, so we can add lights, radar dishes, shuttles, etc. If that doesn't make sense, please add something interesting out there, like a radar array, patrol ship flyby's, etc.

* General Layout -- Please add one more small side room without a view, so we can have a small bedroom, kitchen, utility room, whatever.

* Decorations -- Please create floor-to-ceiling wall decorations that we can add in Medium Narrow/Medium hooks, in the same style, some with doorways and some without, in a variety of lengths, so we can customize the internal layout of the rooms.

I've requested more walls, that reach the ceiling, so hopefully that might happen
I'm aware I can add my own walls but I think they ruin the look of my stronghold. The only place I might use walls is in the the large main room as more of room divider rather than true walls. That said, now I've had a chance to decorate, I think I can live with the other Penthouse rooms as they are should they choose not to alter it.

I'm finding the inability to alter the layouts for medium floor hooks and large wall hooks more of a problem, as I mentioned in a previous post.

Some good ideas for a future space station ... maybe !! I like these ideas !!

I also like the color of the "filters" used on the windows much better than the "yellow tint" currently on the Republic side !!

I'd love to see short and long wall segments with a doorway built into them. They'd work better and look more natural than always leaving openings at the sides or corners.

I have a difficult time using some of the existing wall decorations because they're so thick, they take up a lot of space.

Wouldn't it be cool if they released another bundle of walls -- even if it's just the existing walls with some width/height adjustments, to give us more variety?

^^ along with a bundle of " tech" gadgets or light fixtures !! IMO one of the keys to making this Penthouse apartment work will be the stuff we put inside ... not just random "artifacts". (tried to be diplomatic)

Were these made by you? They look great. This is more along the lines of what one should see in " Fleet SH" I think. Putting SH on a huge outpost in middle of space,where it is surrounded by capital ships of a gigantic space navy..and then having a freakin cantina be the most prominent thing present scenery-wise? Bit like visiting Grand Canyon and spending time staring at a soda can.

Interfleet transport area is a perfect example of the atmopshere I would have liked to see.

In general, prisons have larger widows and more sceneries than this "penthouse". Wasted opportunity in similar way Manaan was. There, you had a stamp-sized view to underwater sceneries. Nice.

Besides that, we already have at least three SHs with this same exact lluxury suite vibe. Something more navy or military themed would have been nice.

Looking forward to Kashyyyk luxury penthouse which features a prominent build in 1:1 painting of the imperial fleet's cantina and 0 trees.

There are very few ceiling light decorations with illumination that extends to the floor from high ceilings.
Considering how many of the new strongholds have high ceiling areas, we could use more lights.
Something like the Revanite Chandelier or Czerka ceiling light in brightness.

We've seen Basic Ceiling Light (Yellow) in other colors around the game.
Perhaps they could release some of the other ones -- blue, green, red, purple, etc.
Especially if they adjust the glow to extend lower from the deco.

A version of Basic Junker's Light, Underworld Light Node, or Octagonal Light Node that actually gives off light, or any brightly illuminating light that works in a Small Wall hook, would be a huge help.
