This is a pair of proposals that I have been mulling over for the last month or so.

Proposal 1: Let us name Corporate Hangars and Ship Maintenance arrays at a POS. We can name assembly arrays, so let's bring the corporate hangars and SMAs the same ease of use. I realize this is a small small thing compared to everything that is wrong with the POS, but if we can't have filet mignon, I'll take hamburger. This would make it a thousand times easier to find things.

Proposal 2: Right click> Show Fitting. I am very very very tired of having to get into a ship to see what's on it or trying to name it something useful so I can remember. Add a right click menu option to show us the fittings, even if it's just a simple text list. And yes, I know you can do this from assets (show contents), but this does not work for ships in SMA's.

Edit: Changed the title of the post - let's see if anyone else stops in now.

Living out of a POS would be easier if we could name all the structures :)

No worries dear. I am guilty of that myself from time to time.

While I agree, I'm hoping that by asking for something small we might at least get CCP to do more than go "No that's hard."

So I am going to bump this just because it's time for CCp to tackle some little things that make us happy.

CSM - throw this on the pile, please and thanks?

Definitely supported. while we're at it, lets name ALL the modules in a POS as we wish.

When you have multiple different reaction processes in your POS, keeping track of which silo is linked to what floating in space can be a PITA.
With naming all items you could do stuff like:
General Silo: Reaction 1 IN A
General Silo: Reaction 1 IN B
General Silo: Reaction 2 IN A
General Silo: Reaction 2 IN B
Whatever Silo: Reaction 1 OUT
Whatever Silo: Reaction 2 OUT

right now the only way to do this, is by putting them in specific positions and memorizing what you put where.

While I have no experience with reactions, I can see how painful that scenario could be.

So how about it CSM? Can we get this raised with CCP? You can't say this wouldn't make your members lives easier too.

I'm not letting this one go. So bump.

As a side note, I'm sure it's worth noting that the more controversial a subject is, the more support/discussion is seems to garner.
The easy ones like this seem to die fast even though the majority of people agree with it.

I wonder if that's why we never see the easy ones get implemented?

Definitely support both ideas. I would like to be able to change the names on all pos modules, but I'll take anything we can get in this direction.

I agree, this would make finding stuff in the wormhole so much better.

Yes to POS stuff. Fixing small stuff like that might make them realize how broken they are.

Bump. This is a great idea. I also feel it should be expanded to all POS structures. I run 13 POSes (10 with reactions) at the moment, and to be honest it all needs an overhaul. I would settle for this little fix for now though. I would also like to see what is in my corp hangars at the POS through corp assets, but that may be asking to much.Smile

I support the renaming of Corp hangers and SMA's, the r'click>fittigs would be nice but is no where near as desperatly needed.

really this post doesn't go far enough, POS's need some love! I'm confident that anyone who's ever lived out of one or run a reaction chain/reseached/refined/moonmined/anything to do with POS's really will agree.

And I agree with you that more is needed. What I'm hoping for here is that by getting the ball rolling on ANY change to them, CCP will start incorporating other changes we've been asking for at the same time.

I always loved the fact; that POS's take 8-10 hours to set up. I think it should stay that way; so we can always be tired of EVE, and irritable for two weeks after.

/sarcasm.

I think I've supported/suggested this before. The first part anyway.
