Why Can’t We Have…

- A hood down option.  After all, the hood is pushed down by lekku and some hats.1

– A stealth action bar.  We get an automatic cover action bar.  Why not a stealth bar?

– Companion mission completion popup boxes hidden during combat.  The companion missions go into “pending” while we’re in a cut scene, why not also during combat?

– Companions depositing materials in inventory without a popup box, for that matter.  When they craft stuff, it just appears in inventory without fanfare.

– Companions coming back from missions putting stuff directly in the cargo hold.  They can take stuff OUT of the cargo hold.  Why can’t they just stuff our crafting materials in the cargo hold (if we tell them to)?

– Companions go mail stuff for us.  They travel to exotic places to get us things and deliver the stuff to us wherever we happen to be.  They can vendor our crap.  But dropping off a package at the post office is too hard.

– Teleport back to ship.  We can teleport to the fleet or to another point on the planet, but not to our own ship.  Our companions can teleport back to the ship!

– Crew Quarters on the jedi ship.  OK, T7 doesn’t need to sleep. Possibly Scourge either.  And Doc can sleep in the captain’s quarters (ahem).  But what about Kira and Rusk?  Do they sleep out in the hall?

What’s on YOUR wishlist?

  1. I am really hoping for this in the “customize” feature in 1.2 but I’m not holding my breath.

    Why Can’t We Have… — 12 Comments

    1. I’m about to become your most favoritest person evar. Hoods are coming in 1.2 according to Georg Zoeller, Lead Combat Designer (he mentioned it at the Guild Summit) … of course, this is subject to change and very well may not be in. 1.2 is shaping up to be a HUGE patch.

      • Whoa, I hope so, I’m tired of the hoodie. Especially since my daughter likes to see “the one with the horns with the necklace on her head” and I have to explain that the horns avec necklace are hidden under the stupid (now orange) hoodie.

    2. Stealth bar: I don’t think there are many actions that need stealth.
      Mission pop up: I understand it is gone in 1.2 as well.

    3. I get that I can’t use a lot of abilities in stealth or cover, it’d be ridiculous if I could. But why can’t I use an ability and have it take me OUT of stealth/cover instead of saying “you can’t do that while stealthed”? Recuperate should pop me out of cover, that’s fine. Hitting stealth from in cover should take me out of cover and put me in stealth instead of needing to move/break cover THEN stealth.

      Minor, yet annoying. Maybe I’m the only operative in the world who uses cover.

    4. I would *love* to be able to see my awesome hair and steam-punk goggles more prominently – I really hope they do keep the no hoods option for 1.2!

      As for what I’d like… well a general search tool for the GTN would be very welcome. It gets a little time-consuming to select the item categories every time.

    5. Re: Stealth bar, my stealth related activities (shoot first, sleep dart) are bound to my left action bar and I use non-number keys to activate them (c and x respectively). When I had the shoot first booster buff via scrapper spec, that was v. YMMV. When stealthed, if I miskey, I either accidentally sleep someone, or I don’t shoot first, since I’m not usually cc’ing from shootfirst range and positioning requirements.
