I have an idea and would like to share it YARRRR!!

I wont talk about reasons why because there are none :P Its just a though that EVE could have a different way the systems are connected to each other.

Basically every region has a capital system with a big gate that is able to hurl ships to other regions. The capital system's gates are also able to transport ships to constallation capitals and recieve ships from those systems. And then the most common type would be a standard system with only a tiny stargate.
The idea is to have only one stargate in each system. Inter-regional(that can hurl ships to othet region capitals and its own constellation capitals), Inter-constellation and standard.
So itsa tree corona system.

Anyone can see this means very quick travel times around EVE galaxy. I think that a system of travel fees would be cool now - no-fee for in-constellation travel, a small fee for in-region travel and a big fee for region<->region travel.

It would be a HUUUUGE change to game play style and mechanics... well feel free to comment :) Or add an idea.

So 95% of systems would only have one way in or out, and the rest would have like 15 gates to those said systems.

Would make defending space WAY easier than it is now. You could defend an entire region by camping 1 or 2 gates.

I've always been a fan of the opposite of what the OP wants to happen. simply, getting rid of smuggler gates and highway connections in high sec to make the game seem much larger than it already is.

Does anyone else find it ******ed that you can attack Cobalt Edge from Tenal?

No. Seriously?

Am imterresting idea mister Sendara :)

In your case I would add an ability for ships to manually warp to other systems. It would take a few minutes (hours for longer distances)... After all its all just "space"... just more of it :P

I want some one way gates :) OFC this would be a boost to gate camps, so to counter this boost the gate you came through would lead to a different system than where you came from.

we have wormholes they are randomish gate networks working as intended perhaps more direct wormholes or expanding the wh system with new rat types, they will be used more now esp with planteary interaction
