3 Stronghold Ideas

A snowy mountain valley village.

Planet: Meris V

Time of day: Midnight with a full moon. A few clouds on a starry night.

Map size: Roughly the same as Alderaan.

A village nestled in a flatter part of a snowy mountainous valley. The buildings are more or less modern. The idea is that this is the beginning of a mining settlement as Meris V is an untapped planet ripe for mining. There are numerous one story and two story buildings, some small, some medium, and at least one large building that can be entered and decorated. Many of the small and medium sized buildings can be entered and decorated but not all. There is also an open, snowy field right next to the village that can have decorations placed. One side of the village is a landing zone with two Starship hooks and one Starship hook in the snowy field.

Another area is the mining cave, which would be similar to Alderaan's cave at the mine's entrance (obviously without the Killiks stuff) but would also tunnel further into the mountain similar the Yavin 4's cave. The cave is completely empty so that players can decorate the cave/mine as they wish so the players are not forced into having a mine in their stronghold.

The boundaries of this area would be as such: To one side, you have a side of a hill, cliff, or mountain that is impossible to go up. At each end of the village is an exhaustion zone where it warns the player they are about to freeze to death as their health gets lower and lower. At the side of the village opposite of the hill, cliff, or mountain is a crystal clear ice cold river that flows by that acts as another exhaustion zone that also warns the player they are about to freeze to death as their health lowers.

Hi ,
I have idea about strongholds in general. Is to extends the limits of moving decorations in edition mod.
Because i think that 20 or -20 in vertical or in horizontal is very few, why don't they extend the limit by 30, -30 ?

I think there is another thread for that kind of question. This thread is just about new stronghold ideas, not general questions about current strongholds or their mechanics.

The reason is that is the limit the dev's placed on them and that is something people have requested quite a bit in other posts about strongholds.

I would love to get a Wanderer Class Flagship as a stronghold option.

I know this is way beyond "3 Stronghold Ideas" at this point but I have a couple more to throw out there and had fun coming up with.

Planet: ??? One of the planets the Eternal Empire bombarded.

Time of day: Early Evening

Map: A large island in the ocean far off the coast. A crumbling and burning city skyline is in one direction while the ocean is in every other direction.

The starting/spawning point is is an underground bunker with a large central room with three smaller rooms. When getting to the surface through unlockable elevator that goes up to a smaller bunker room where there are a flight of stairs that lead up to the island surface. The island doesn't have any trees so players can add whatever foliage they want without have it clash with the look of the other foliage unless intentionally done by the player. There are some rocks and flowers though. There is a mansion on one part of the island with several rooms. On the island shore that faces the coast, there are a few boats at a dock.


Planet ???

Time of Day: Midnight of a moonless night.

Map: A large map of a pine forest.

The player would spawn inside a large main room of a large two story house with a basement in the middle of the map. There are several medium and small sized rooms to unlock. Unlocking the front door will also unlock the back door and vise versa. The area immediately outside of the back door is a patio. A trail passes by the front of the house and goes from one end of the map to the other. The area surrounding the house is a pine forest. In the moonless night in the forest, a few ghosts will appear and disappear throughout the entire forest. When a ghost spawns, it is spawned in for several seconds before disappearing and not spawning back in for several minutes.

I'd spend a ridiculous amount of money on a Republic/Imperial frigate- eg: hammerhead, personal ship.

We have some planets with volcanos (Ord Mantell, Oricon, the HK-55 bonus chapter with the Shroud), but no Volcanic Strongholds.

Mustifar awaits. After all, Darth Vader's Stronghold has to have misty origins back in the day - and we are Back in the day. Plus this would be a chance for some really Dark-Side themed SHs!!!
