Scenario
Lets say your alliance is on a major offensive and resupplying pilots with ships, guns and ammo is going to difficult.

My proposal would be let Supercarriers and/or Titans produce goods at a greatly accelerated speed in exchange for a 5, 10, 15% + increase in the mineral cost of the item.

I think it would bring an interesting dynamic to the game. It would be nice however to offset this by making attacking sov alittle harder... but i digress :)

I'm no 0.0 junkie, but did you just say "Make attacking Sov harder"?

I don't think you'll get much support for that bit of it.

Lag is already bad, and a good number of people already find Supercarriers to be on the overpowered side. I don't think they need this.

It's called a Rorqual.

Super capitals are offensive/military ships... not industry. (Not that I'm stopping anyone from slapping a mining laser on said ships (if they have turret slots).

Yep, add Rorq's big brother that can't dock or go into wormholes but has built-in refinery, massive cargo capacity and industry slots to produce anything a station can, should be worth 2-3 outpost prices though.

beautiful idea, it would be great if it had a corp hangar, affectively make a corporation sized mobile station :D

Hm... An industry supercapital is not a bad idea. Now... it would of course not be able to build capitals or supercapitals, but it could be pretty good at building subcapital ships. The cargo size of the ship would have to be made to neither reach or get over 1,000,000m3 though, so that it retains the intent of CCP to not be able to haul freighters.
