3 Stronghold Ideas

These are just a couple of ideas without going over the already most wanted strongholds like Alderaan or Hoth. I would love to hear feedback on these ideas to see what others think.

Space Station - A good sized space station with three levels, two hangars with starship hooks and one hangar with a centerpiece hook (in addition to other hooks in the hangars), multiple rooms of various sizes most of which have windows/ a window, and an large observation area on top (third level). All floors are accessed by stairs. The space station could be near a pulsar or something else spectacular in space.

Spira - A planet mostly covered in water with numerous islands and island chains dotting the planet. Here, the stronghold would be a luxurious mansion right on the beach of a private island. The rest of the island is about the size of the Yavin 4 SH and is covered in tropical flora. Unsure of what else may be on the island. Landing area? The time setting would be midnight, which is something different from the the other strongholds to date.

Luxury Cruise Liner - A fancy space cruiser for the rich and elite traveling through space. (If we can have a train SH traveling across a planet, we can have a ship traveling through space in a Star Wars game) A cruise liner with at least three decks, including an engine room and bridge, with multiple rooms of various sizes with windows/ a window. Very fancy looking. All floors are accessed with an elevator.

My Opinions:

Space Station: This would be good as we can't buy flagships for ourselves and would be very different to the strongholds currently available. However, I think it would be useful to have elevators if it is a large stronghold to speed up travel times.

Spira: A mansion similar to Coruscant would be nice with more rooms and possibly one or more starship hooks? It could be on the side of a mountain like the Master's Retreat on Tython at the start of the JK/JC storyline. There could also be a town nearby with a lot of different buildings/rooms which I would find more useful than natural areas but the rest of the space could be covered in tropical flora.

Cruise Liner: Again, we don't have personal flagship strongholds and I think this would be a good alternative as it would be distinctive from the guild ships and could be another option for neutral guilds if it was the same size as one. There's also a lot of spaces to add different sized rooms which would be very useful.

Overall I think all of them are good ideas and should be added at some point

Not against any of your ideas and I really like a space station stronghold but i was thinking of something a lot smaller. Maybe a 1/4 of the size of the Coruscant/DK apartments. Maybe something like Kaliyo's but with lots and lots of hooks as well as an outdoor patio and ship dock.

A stronghold in space would be interesting, especially if we could change the view out the windows.
Maybe it could move around like guild flagships, or at least appear to, but why not use the existing system?

A small apartment like Kaliyo's would be pretty nice. Add 2 or 3 rooms and it would be a nice home for players.

A Space Station Stronghold would be very nice. Maybe at the size the Yavin or Rishi Stronghold.
Something else, could be a Korriban or Tython Stronghold. Some more Light- and Darkside themed Strongholds.

All three in the OP are pretty good ideas:

Space Station: Definitely with a special view, like a pulsar or even a flowing nebula. The sky on Ilum, or the mini-galaxy on Rishi, only more so.

Spira: Two thoughts on this: I'd pay CC for a base on a tropical beach like the Rakata FP (I really like the RIshi SH, but the scenery pales to Rakata). Frankly, if they just took the Rakata FP beach area and turned it into a stronghold, I'd be happy as a space clam.
Also, after running through the HK55 special, with its underwater section, I was hoping they would incorporate that. Still disappointed we don't have an actual underwater area we can decorate *and* walk around in.

Space Cruiser: Yep, a personal flagship would be a nice change of pace. Moving a guild ship is fun by itself, and being able to do that without the big expense, and not having to deal with guildies to do it? Yes, please.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.

I came up with another idea for a place to put military decos for those who have themed Strongholds and have nowhere to really put down their military style decos.

Name?: D'Qar Outpost. Planet?: D'Qar. Time of Day: Mid-morning. Weather: Storming.
Size: ???

The Outpost is a map that has definitely seen action. Along the entire length of the 'front' edge of the map is a fortified barricade made up of logs, metal, and sandbags. The height of the fortified barricade varies down its length. Its lowest is the height of the tallest part of the Battle-Worn Barricade and the highest part of the fortified barricade is the highest part of the Settlement Barrier. The 'back' 1/4th of the SH map is a forested area where there is also a landing pad with a Spaceship hook. Between the fortified barricade and the forested area is an area that has some debris, a few fires, some knocked over trees, and a few different sized impact craters. In this devastated area but back near the edge of the forested area is a good sized command building that is two stories tall and has an accessible large balcony on the second story. (centerpiece being the largest hook. No Spaceship hook here)

The out of bounds area past the edges of the playable map is one big exhaustion zone. The fortified barricade extends in both directions, even past the playable areas. (Barricade could go behind a thicker part of the forest so the devs don't have to make it seem like it goes on forever.) On the other side of the fortified barricade is a No Man's Land similar to real world World War One.

I would love a Ossus Stronghold and a Tython Stronghold. The space Station Strong Hold is an amazing Idea

Got an idea for a large SH map from Onderon: Either 1/2 or at least 1/3 of the map is a town similar to the Onderon towns. Most buildings can be entered and decorated but the wall that surrounds the town is only 1/4th the size of the town walls on Onderon. The rest of the map is wilderness. Jungle, forest, desert, frozen wastes, plains, or whatever the developers put. Maybe with some caves and if it isn't a frozen wastes map, a shallow river would run through the wilderness. I would also like this map to be in the dead of night with a full moon overhead.
