I'm not sure if this is the right place for this idea but I like how people can move things for you in EVE but I want to also have some taxi in game. Like I can pay someone or go on my alts ship and move my guy from one place to another while trusting the person moving me that his/her ship wont be blown up.

I would run spank taxis and drop people off in wormholes then ransom them to be given access to the exit.

so your idea is to take have someone fly your ship with you in it from one destination to another? Autopilot. And it doesn't even ask you for a tip or speak in languages you dont understand.

That'd be kinda fun, though you'd probably effectively need CCP to create a ship that can carry other ships with players still inside that can still fit through a stargate so you can use it in highsec. Or maybe it would just be able to take your capsule along.

It'd be like a Traveler's Tundra Mammoth/X-53 Nether Rocket/Mechano-Hog from World of Warcraft. If you consider a ship like a mount, that is.

I think it'd get abused too much, like some of other posters suggested. I used to take my X-53 Nether Rocket, offer someone a ride, fly really really high, and then dismount and shift into bird form. They drop, I fly.

Also, how would you balance it out, a specialized ship like that shouldn't be heavily armed, but it'd also make a very tempting target. Two podkills at once? I'd tap that.

I think it would be interesting if you could ride with your ship (or even just in a capsule), inside of a ship maintenance bay. That would provide a ready-made feature that could be used for a "taxi" service. Not sure how easy it would be to implement.

It would also make a hella nasty mini-hotdrop scenario

CCP tried having one player in another player ship and its not compatible with the database structure. Original intent for Titans to be mobile stations.


This idea gets asked at least once a month in the features and idea's forum.

Giving the game is computer code then they can take some amount of time and make this happen. It is on some space games so I now it is possible
