You know, as an adult the 'for all ages' argument is getting pretty thin for me in gaming. The idea that innocent children are corrupted by nudity has been proven wrong for millenia. Ancient civilizations did not hide their beautiful nude artwork from young people, and dedicated porn seekers of any age will find it no matter how 'clean' we keep our MMO's. I wish people did not mask body shame as 'protecting the innocent.'

Before it gets to be a pRon argument....

Actually what i think it needs is a resort. I didn't come to risa to vacation in a hut....

Swimming pool, bar, casino, the whole works. Including cosplay maids. No wait, i mean serving girls.

All the locations in the game are lacking things to do. You can't do anything on Vulcan or Andor either.

They need to borrow a page from Star Wars Galaxies, and put a number of towns and points of interest for people to visit.

After that, some kind of random encounters could be generated, both favourable and hazardous.

The game is produced in America, where things like nudity are a prime offense in entertainment, far more so than excessive gore. I need only point to most horror movies made here; you can watch people ripped limb from limb in glorious detail, but you'll be lucky to see more than an errant breast. This goes for games, as well. God of War, for example, had only two sets of breasts readily visible unless you wanted to take a moment to stare at the Gorgons, yet you were constantly impaling and dismembering creatures of all makes and models in sprays of bountiful red fluids.

Honestly I think that whole train of thought is a bit backwards. But alas, nothing with can do about it in the short term. And besides, you remember the Mass Effect debacle? Or how Oblivion got bumped up a whole rating for nipples that weren't even available in game without modding? Or, probably the modern source for the whole sex scare, GTA: San Andreas' "Hot Coffee"?

Cryptic would get torn several new ones if they allowed anything skimpier than the Orion outfits we're getting, is the sad fact...

Vulcan and Andor now have diplomatic missions.

Whats good for SWG isnt here. SWG revolves around those points of interest, its not an 'extra'. And for the most part is playerbased content. Unless you're suggesting these planets become a core game element, its not possible for them to have so much focus in the form of wide expanses of terrain with towns and such. I agree that they still need more features though, especially risa. Like interiors for vulcan, and more missions and vendors.

I'm just saying there should be points of interest to go visit. On Tatooine, you could go see Ben's house, or the Skywalker homestead. There were actual cities (usually pretty deserted). Nothing of particular note was there to DO, except get a badge saying you'd been there.

Examples on Vulcan could include Mount Seleya, T'pol's home, the Vulcan Science Institute, and so on. There wouldn't necessarily need to be anything there to DO (though there could be), it's just that having places to visit would be nice.

Ok fair enough. I thought you wanted cities. Although taking vulcan as an example, arent we at mount seleya already? We do need those rest though.

i would put a mission on there for sure, maybe some form of investigation mission or someone has been murdered or a string of murders and you have to solve it and restore peace.

and at least one mini game, a vendor that sells unique food to make new tribbles and maybe a tailor that only sells casual wear and beach wear.
