A Fungus Among Us

I like testing out the various housing items to see what can fit together well, aside from placing NPCs at computers, bars, and tables.  The Rakata Mind Trap in the middle of the Jedi Fountain is a good combination.; crystals also work really well. 

A guildmate placed a datacron just right inside of a Selkath Medical Tank that it looked like it was on fire or something, pretty cool effect.  I have a datacron in the center of one of those arrangements you buy from Felusia, it could be better but I like it.

The datacron table in my little casino lounge.

Another guildmate had table dancers at his Tatooine home (apparently I didn't take screenshots for some reason) and I've had Rakliings on top of my Science Station, as well as the Small Holo Table in the center of it.  The guildmate who did the burning Selkath Tank has had Flutterplumes inside of medical tanks and a Manka Cat on his bed.  Just a bunch of things you can do if you think about it.  I saw one person post on the SWTOR forums examples of art they make out of the story mode trophies, really great stuff that I never thought of (because I have an obsession with banners anyway) but I have rotated the 'Pub Voss Embassy Sign to make it a bit different.

Anyway, I had a couple of those awesome Sculptural Fountains and when I ended up getting my Spores, I knew exactly what I wanted to try and I quite like the result.  So here are some screenshots of my fountains, fungi, and fungal fountains.

Bloom versus no bloom

The fountains after I got them set up and before I got the fungi.

One of the fountains after I added the glowing spores to see what it looked like.

A spore fountain in my DK home, fave of all the homes but so inconvenient for my 'Pub scum (and friends).

Both Nar Shaddaa fountains with fungus, also with all graphics at max.

Fleet Codex Entries

For those of you who, like me, have overlooked the lore objects for Vaiken Spacedock and Carrick Station that were added in 2.10, here are their locations.

Alien Options 1 Preview

I only took these three as examples since anyone can view them at the item modification station in-game and, to me, seeing it in-game with your own eyes beats all.  I may or may not add more if I feel like logging back in.

Appearance Options: Alien Options 1
Unlocks 4 new hair style options for Chiss, Cyborg, Mirialan, and Miralukan characters. Includes 2 female hair styles, 1 male hair style, and 1 unisex hair style. Also includes 6 new hair colors and 1 new eye color option for Cyborg characters.
These options are available at the Appearance Designer or during Character Creation.
These options were previously available only to Human characters.

A few more.

It's a Cash Shop Halloween, Again (Always)

Upcoming Halloween items in the Cartel Market that are viewable in collections right now.  I didn't take screenshots of the masks since you can't preview them as they are toys like the glowing eyes.

Some Items I Want as Decorations

These are some of the items I want to see added as decorations, though one of them I just saw as being in the Senechal's Pack so that's freaking awesome.

The wall sconce and sharp thingies was what I was going for here, and the sconce is in the Senechal's Pack along with the cage.
Yay, cool stuff!

Yes, that first screenshot is for the sharp thingies and the red crystal; I want them both.

This is just kind of pretty, and it would be neat if it illuminated its surroundings.  It seems that only those ugly yellow ceiling lights we have illuminate anything and sometimes that illumination looks bad to me.  Wow, three versions of the word illuminate in one description; maybe I should have used some synonyms.

The plant I would love to have in a smaller pot than those huge ones that look ridiculous; I'm looking at you, sea grass and large fern.  And, obviously, the plant would be scaled down to look good in houses because these plants are freaking huge (well, some are; there's some smaller ones I think, too).

I like this arrangement of containers.  The ones on the pedestals are nice and all, but I really like this one and I think it would fit more locations better.

This pylon thing would make a good decoration once it's reduced in size a bit.
