Flying station. Can only jump one system per day. Has a market but is not listed on a regional market. Shows up on overview. Can't warp.

Has massive HP, 8 highs, 8 mids, 8 lows. Enough PG/CPU and cap to be very dangerous to super caps. When it pops, everything inside goes boom. Needs a roq/orca/carrier to pull up along side so it can refit.

Has unlimited caro. Extra modules could be things such as refining, repair shop, etc. When the pilot goes off line, the "station ship" remains.

When it jumps, anyone docked inside goes along with it.

Building requirements would be about the same as an outpost plus a few titans.


I don't know why but this idea struck me as awesome.


Same here. Awesomely awesome.

Always found it really odd that something like a Titan was flown by just one pilot.
How about a ship that needs 2 pilots?
If it is at all possible.

Mobile station was more or less one of the early Titan concepts.

Not sure how good these ideas are but:

Deep Space Carrier
Take the standard carrier, cross with a recon ship, ???, profit.

Corvette Class
I like the idea of the corvette class...although a corvette was typically smaller than a frigate, so maybe have it be another T2 frigate? Maybe a planetary assault vessel? (maybe for dust integration).

Escort Carrier / Light Carrier
Ok, I understand people wanting to keep caps in low-sec, but I'd like the ability to deploy fighters in high-sec.

Planetary Assault Ship
T2 Dreadnaught maybe...guns for orbital bombardment, take down electronics a bit (so it has even more trouble locking), give it something like a troop bay, or landing craft bay(If you haven't figured it out, I'm really excited about integrating Dust). Or maybe make it it's own class of ship, smaller guns but with enhanced range (for pinpoint strikes) and larger landing capacity

Monitor Class:
Small ship, really big guns...(only put on this list because something like capital size guns).

CIC Ship:
T2 Titan or Supercarrier

Fire Ship:
Fleet support vessel, no turrets, but lots of fitting capability for remote repair, energy transfer, and other tanking systems.

"Outrigger" or Tug
A smaller (Like cruiser to battle cruiser size) ship that docks on the outside of other ships...something like a bonus afterburner, or maybe a jump-drive. Or maybe just have it be a tug, grapples onto very large ships to move them when they don't have a pilot.

Capital Mining Vessel:
Strap 2 Hulks together with a jump drive and a cargo hold...make it slower...

Mobile Industrial Platform:
Jumping Refinery/Factory, lets you build things...in space...Maybe a modified Freighter, or carrier, sans carrier capabilities...or maybe a titan...could be smaller though (would only build stuff that could fit in its cargo hold)

Science Vessel:
Jumping Research and Blue-Print Copy Facility...perfect for scientists on the go...see the Mobile Industrial Platform

And I don't know about you...but I'd like to see a ship with say: redundant capacitors...



Seems like all good ideas to me, except:

What role would this fill? Sounds like a stealthbomber, but with overpowered guns ? Would only make suicide ganking easier, not really having a counter or proper role except beeing overpowered.

no ability to use fighters but has a MASSIVE ship hanger and and cargo bays with a decently far jump range, maybe able to jump bridge?

I think one combat niche remains.

Minelayers and their counter, minesweepers. Would be a nice way to bring a bit of tactics when positioning to fight.


Mines were done in an earlier version of Eve. Was a disaster.


It doesn't mean they can't code it right some time.

Perhaps code them like proximity drones. They explode like a bomb (AE damage) when within x range. They can't be seen on overview/space until a minesweeper with special electronics / sweeping module scans the grid, then they show up at least in space if not on overview. Only x amount of mines allowed per grid, and they expire after x hours/days.

Perhaps give this function of deployment to stealth bombers, while a previously mentioned destroyer-type would be the sweeper (dics second role).

They would probably only be for null sec. They would go great with bubbles.

Corvette was because someone had mentioned it before as an in-between for battleship and dreadnaught. when in reality they where smaller ships...kind of like an interceptor, but more like the assault ship. My suggestion was to make it a troop-delivery ship.

Monitor:
Maybe T2 destroyer...not sure though...just sounded like it would be fun for some people (even though I'm usually on the receiving end of suicide ganks)

CIC:
Yeah...I thought I deleted that one...not really sure where I was going

Fire Ship:
Yeah, like the logistics ships, but bigger...something like an orca-sized fleet-support ship.

Capital Mining Vessel:
Pretty much what you'd get if ORE designed a mining vessel in my opinion, looking at their other ships...plus It would be a very powerful industry driver...and an easy target...

The idea of having a cap that unfolds into a station for WH usage is a cool idea, and one that when you sit and relect brings you to the scenario like Depp Space 9. Anchor it on a worm hole and the WH comes static? /me Shivers at the thought of that. Kinda big, but not too big it takes 300 gazzilion mazzillion ships to reff it.

Or basically a cap that makes unstable Wormholes - static, HP of an orca, can not be used on the K162 WH. - or may be it can.

It then becomes a beacon on overview like a gate.

I think we need a cap ship that can function as a capital destroyer. The Dread class is to underpowered to be fielded nowadays in a big cap fight, and I think we need either buffed dreads or supercap dreads that can function as anti supercap platform.

I would welcome capital construction ship. Something very big, very slow and need to be deployed to use its unique cababilities to construct even pos structures. One highslot so some fool can go mining with it or fit a cloak.

+1 i like this idea.

Also buff dreads, make caps so they can only kill other caps the bigger the cap the bigger the targets they can destroy e.g. titans versus bc's NO, titans killing dreads, sc's and other titans yes.

While we are at it, a ship that can kill caps in one shot, e.g.a module that needs the energy transfer of 9 other ships. you can only fire the weapon when those 9 other ships have locked and transferred to the main weaspon a bit like in this video New Ship / module idea for eve

well t3 capitals seems like a great idea.

we still have ship models unused, bantams, navitas, tormentor, and burst. I humbly put forth this idea, make them t2 mine layers, and to avoid previous problems with mines, impose a time duration, and number that can be deployed by a minelayer, something to the effect a small/medium smartbomb in terms of damage and radius.

Or, make them dedicated anti stealth ships,engineer something with the same mechanics as interdictors/heavy interdictor modules

also possibility, make them the frigate version of command ships

though i think eventually there will be a t3 version of all ship classes

.



rather than keeping track of each mine set it up so that you deploy a single minefield of X strength with Y charges. then you get too close and aoe damage breaks out y times before the field is depleted. this has te sovereign virtue of keeping the number of objects down to a tolerable number.

Explorer/Science ship

This would be able to scan a system using advanced sensors arrays to locate sites and other ships without the use of probes. They would have a limited number of weapon slots with a damage bonus allowing it to accommodate salvagers and tractorbeams. It would also need large resistances to protect the ships on-board labs and factories. It could also have some bonuses to codebreaker and analysers. Maybe corporate hanger and ship maintenance bays. Also could have a 15% mass reduction ability per skill so it can enter any wormhole.
(Not sure if that makes it too powerful a ship for WH exploration, but also means that you only need one ship to do it well)

ORE Gas Mining ship

A ship with bonuses to gas mining enough said.

Smart Mines

Cloaked mines that use smartbombs to take out ships, there could be a limit to maybe up to 6 per gate and do the same kind of damage as a bomb. They don’t re-cloak for 60seconds after use and have a variable recharge time that can be set to balance damage and rate of fire.

Escort Carrier

Orca sized ship that can deploy 5 fighters (maybe fighter bombers), and maybe have a few weapons slots, but defiantly able to work in empire.

Drifter Colony/Mobile Stations

A ship that is designed for wormhole living it can anchor its self and act as a station, it is equipped with labs, factories, refinery and reactors, allowing it to harvest and construct T3 ships and limited other items. The ship would have a 20% mass reduction per level to allow it to access even C1 wormholes. In station mode the weapons modules can be refitted and they have up to 500% damage bonus to help protect the station and similar bonus is also applied to shields and shield boosting these should work even if the owner is offline similar to a POS. In ship mode it has a limited warp speed, which makes moving it slow and it can use stargates and has a jumpdrive. It doesn’t use fuel like a POS only for jumping it around. (yes this is to replace POS's but I would like to see that happen too, they need to be fixed Smile)

Capital Exploration would be nice. Give it a fitting bay, and a large cargo hold. Would be able to do a lot with it, but could it be kept under 300mil kg? It would need to have low enough mass to get through a standard wormhole along with a few support ships. This would make the primary drawback of the ship the issue of it being a one way trip into a wormhole.

As for skills, how about new specialization skills which each have their own branch of skills they unlock, but once a player has chosen a certain skill set, the others are unavailable to them. Creating locked-in specialization?

Fire control ship.

A vessel that is rather large, a good buffer and default resistances, with no guns but some drone support, that gives Tracking, Optimal Range, and damage bonuses to fleet mates in system.

Players will need to balance tanking mods and bonus mods on the fire support vessel, so while they can make it have a formidible tank, it has almost no offensive abilities, and the larger the tank the less bonuses it can give.

So the ship would come with modules smiliar to warfare links, only it can only it can only be fitted to the Fire support vessel. I would say give this ship the sig size of an orca, only a much stronger shield, armor tanking system with high default resists to defleck some small attacks.

Just my two cents.

for the cap ships to traverse via Wh... i was thinking of a skill/mod that works like a jump drive but what it does is reduce the mass of the ship to negligible levels (have it use stont for fuel)... (the activation of the mod should make the ship really vulnerable to attacks for the activation time)
I think of it like dr.who's tardis

I suppose a new module for the wormhole mass problem would be a "Mass Damper" a module that reduces a ships mass using some kind of weird spacial thingy Razz

Would also be nice to be able to stabilize wormholes too Laughing

That would be nice, but stabilizing a wormhole should be temporary, or, like a POS, require some sort of upkeep.

Yeh! Saw it touched on here...a battleship class, energy transfer hull as a support ship for Titans. A Titan would need a certain level of energy transfer from a number of these logistic BS's, before it could operate a doomsday device.
It could open up all kinds of possibilities...Wink
