the issuance of a rookie ship is a stopgap from a player losing all of his game possesions and ISK and thus making it impossible to recover from the loss of a ship. the rookie ship always gives the player the ability to kill the easiest of NPCs in a rookie ship and progress in the game, however slowly. however for msot players the rookie ship is an annoyance that causes mroe problems than it solves

i have several hundred lose rookie ships and bits of tritanium floating around in random stations i will never visit. not because i lost a ship and needed it, but because i decided to fly to a station in my pod. these items only clutter up the assets tab, and most importantly, causes undue database load on the server

there should be an option on the esc menu to opt-out of being given a new rookie ship, and the ability to opt back in at any time

this could also apply to the annoying SCC mails every time i dock in a pod, although the new mail system males it easy to delete them all easily.

what does everyone think? is this just an annoyance for me or do others have the same issues?

It's pretty annoying, but trashing it every time you dock in a pod isnt really that big a burden.

yup.

Think about the extra process that happens on the server when they ahve to prompt you if you want. I can tell you that when I'm getting my ass kicked and I'm spamming the OMFGDOCKNOWNOWNOWNOW!!!! button, I don't wanna deal with more process.

Its fairly annoying and would be nice to disable. Not terribly high priority.

I'm against this. A bit less annoyance is not worth the possibility of putting someone into an irreparable game state.

Right, but the simplest solution would be to remove the automatic sawning of rookie ships and add a button "request 1 rookie ship in this station".

This way the player could spawn a rookie ship everywere he want (even where he already has a ship available or in a hostile station) but the system will not automatically generate tons of rookie ships.

Add a small cooldown period to avoid people that would spawn tons of them for "fun".

Definitely support this. As someone that likes to keep the assets clean, getting ANOTHER rookie ship everytime I JC or hop to another station in a pod is extremely annoying. Really wish this had been implemented ages ago, but sometime in the future works too.

I could live with that, but my concern is idiot-proofing it for newbies. I don't want to see people quitting the game because they can't find the button, or anything stupid like that.
