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.
Kind of what I was eluding to when I was talking about bundling earlier... we could definitively use some new styles and perhaps combine with other really nice ones to create a "lighting bundle" . Or perhaps even a new "drop" of some sort while in game !!

Also a more "natural or white" lighting would work.. Blue as you have suggested might work as well !!

I hope they do something about that "yellow tint" on the Republic side !! UGH it really takes away from the overall view !! It should also be noted that even in RL we have gone to strictly LED/ dimmable/ "Daylight" (not "soft white") just to improve the overall lighting throughout the house.

I noticed that some decorations with fire or similar (such as the holosconce) make an overbearing horrible roaring sound rather that a light crackling fire sound. Might want to fix this before going live.

Edit: However, on a positive note the Ambient Machines finally work and sound excellent I have rain, thunder and birds playing in the main room - it's fantastic. I hope it's not the result of a bug.

Since the subject of sound / music has come up:


UPDATE:
** For me on the Republic side the sound is awful !!! The sound track that is played while logging in or changing characters (normally) is so loud that it drowns out everything else (Even a water fall area that I had set up) !!
Keep in mind that this music normally fades out after 1-1/2 to 2 minutes of logging in. It's so bad that I finally set preferences for "music" at ZERO while on PTS !!! (it really is that annoying).

** Ambient sounds: are minimal even though I have preferences set at 100%.
This is something that MUST be fixed !! This is a deal breaker !! Control over the sounds for the Penthouse is a MUST !!
____
Also another update: Graphics bug (???) The "opened seam" (for lack of a better term) that allows us to see space that surrounds the entire space station while standing at the second threshold is still there !!

It sounds like the fire is louder than it used to be, or maybe it's a matter of where I placed them.

Also, the Holo Sign decos (mostly the new Mek-Sha ones) are so annoyingly buzzy and loud, I hate to use them. If you put up more than one, the sounds seem to combine exponentially. It's like nails on a chalkboard.

It's also too loud and too much after awhile on the game map. There are places on Mek-Sha I can't stand to spend much time, which is really a shame because it has one of the best location designs in the game. (I want a Mek-Sha apartment someday!)

Devs, please cut the fire volume by 25% and the Holo Sign volumes by 50% (or even 75%)?
This small change would make a huge difference.

Meanwhile... has anyone noticed much happening outside the Fleet apartment windows?
I think I noticed a few small ships moving very slowly, but nothing significant. Are there any Tatooine-style events in the distance?

Just my take on it ... iMO it seems to be somewhat "generic" for now !! Nothing particularly wrong with that ... just simply an observation !!

BTW... have you experienced any of the same items I've mentioned ?? Just curious !

Now that the Stronghold cap will be 20, please make the Felucia Stato personnel decoration cap 20?

Thanks!

If your aim is to have a vendor in each Stronghold, keep in mind that there are plenty of other vendors such as the Republic and Imperial medical droids, the Jawa scrap dealers, etc.

I want a decoration and Contraband Slot Machine coin vendor in my new strongholds.

If I go get a Felucia out of an existing stronghold, then I have to explore the whole stronghold and figure out which Personnel I've already used, so that I can replace her with a non-duplicate (which breaks immersion, etc.)

Some strongholds are big enough, you want vendors in multiple locations (IE: Rishi).

Seriously a pain.

Plus, why the limit at all?

I would also like to see an "interplanetary" vendor(s) that would cover the items we get from the assorted reputation / currency vendors. (ie: the decoration items available (through reputation only) on Ossus, Onderon or Ilum) .

(Frankly ... some times I forget what planet has which decos that I like the most !! )
