I was wondering on what everyone thoughts were on dead pos' in space. Basically not fueled and has been for months.

This is only a suggestion so please refrain from the flaming as I am fragile to the flame. What if a pos has been offline for so long or empty of fuel that it actually unanchors or just disintegrates? Like containers in space have to have someone access them every so often. Why not have a pos require fuel every so often or it disappears or unanchors? Anyone??

this has come up many times. there was even supposed to be something done about it some time ago. The biggest problem as I understand it, is that an off line POS is as hard to kill as an on line POS. off line POSes should have no shields. They have no fuel, no power, how can they still have full shields. The bubble disapears but they still have the full hitpoints from the shields.

I think after three to six months of being inactive, they should "forget" who owned them and allow anyone to unanchor them.

a tower has say25,000,000 shield HP, 1,000,000 armor, and 1,000,000 structure. An off line POS looses the force field bubble, but still has full shield hit points. This makes no sense to me as if it is off line with no fuel, there is no power, there should be no shield.

If an off line POS lost its shield they would be much easier to pop. if you only needed to do 2 mil damage instead of 26-27 mil you would no longer need to spend 4-6 hours with a decent BS fleet to clear a dead POS in high sec. With the current system an off line POS is as hard to kill as a online POS so since you need to war dec it anyway to keep concord off you why not go after an online POS. better chance for loot, same effort, mild chance someone will show up to defend it. many high sec corps will pull down a POS if war deced, so if all you want is the spot the easiest way is to go after a on-line POS. I say again this makes no sense. make off line towers easy to kill simply by making the shields go offline when the POS does.

This gets my vote, surely its the best way to deal with old Pos

How about having it go up for auction of some type.

Or let the person who wants it file a claim on the pos and pay a fee of some kind on the size of it and take it over free and clear.

As CEO and cheif dunce of Vogon Demolitions, a corporation made up of alts in AFKgeddons and AFKdomi's, we don't mind paying 2M to dec the corps behind offline POSs in hisec. Sure, it takes time, but when you have nothing else to do you just turn up, press F1 and walk away from your computer; the rest is simply a matter of time. My corporation has cleared a half dozen moons of POS trash so far, and we accept contracts.

If there is a need, someone in EVE will find a way to make money off it. Or at least killmails.

Wouldn't it be so much easier if those off line POSes did not still have full shield hit points. You might as well just war dec and attack a online POS. A least then you can scoop the modules once the POS is destroyed. I don't think there is much better chance of someone showing up to defend the POS in high sec even if it is online. if they could deffend it, it probably would not be in high sec.

I would love to be able to unanchor and scoop them, or claim them as my own with some high tier hacking skill they could add, but next best is just make them have only armor/structure for defense and loose the huge shield buffer when off line.
