Ive got an idea and im writing it here before ill forget it :P
During our travels we carry the different fittings in our cargo bays (0.0 or even high sec when we bounce between agents, mine different roids). Imo being able to refit the ship in space (without the need of a carrier or pos) would grant us clever ones more strategy options and will make the game more interresting.
Having to dock to station only to change one module sux :P
So the idea is: give every ship a reconfiguration/fitting mode. Takes time to initiate it (like 1 min for frigs, 2 mins for cruisers and so - 5 mins for battleships...) - during the time ship prepares the reconfiguration mode it is unable to move and activate any modules. After it enters the mode it also cannot do anything but you can switch modules to/from your cargo. When the pilot wants to accept the changes it takes 10 secs to online new modules and we are ready to go :)
Cool isnt it?
I think it is most appealing for exploration *****s, wormhole explorers and miners :)
One could prepare for himself a true exploration - customizable vessel.
It would be fun to have the reconfiguration mode sit in a rig (reconfiguration rig) - only with this thingy (because it grants you external manipulators that can replace modules) one could enter reconfign mode
Some may attempt to forsee what this would bring to the game but i think its worth thinking over :) Basically its just the removal of the need to dock :)
