COSMOS is obsolete and left behind content that was developed in a time when EVE didn't have dynamic agents nor epic mission arcs.

This content could be revamped and integrated into the new systems that are now in place to support PVE/missions: either making COSMOS agents dynamic or rewriting the missions themselves as epic storyline missions. Or both.

It feels like an elegant move since this would merge all mission PVE content under a common system, instead of having separate things that were developed with different mindsets.

It's not a major thing but this should be low hanging fruit an easy to do. Furthermore, perhaps revamping COSMOS content is easier to do than adding new stuff, thus a quick win.

supported

COSMOS is one of the original examples of a feature left to rot in favour of new shiny things

CCP seem to have a mindset that addressing old features is somehow a backward step. But MMOs a lot more successful than EvE have revamped old content to great acclaim.

If by dynamic you mean repeatable then no. Fix and or finish the content, yes. Balance the BPC's, yes.

Each Cosmos Agent mission series offered is a specific storyline mission offer that gives a large Faction standing increase when completed. Only available once in the life of the character. Keep that as is.

The Epic Arcs is a much longer series of missions that can be repeated every 3 months for Faction standing increase. Keep that as is.

Over the years there's been lot's of proposal's written about Cosmos which end up getting passed over for other proposals about CSM, CCP, NEX prices, etc..

This is just one of the many Cosmos proposals that got passed over.

COSMOS and all 1-time missions need some love.

I've done most of them for Caldari and Amarr and they are confusing and hard to track where you have and haven't been. An "Epic Arc" type journal series would be MUCH appreciated...especially with the tag, circle, and tutorial agents; but that is almost another topic altogether.

At a minimum I'd like a way to track these agents, as a bonus the COSMOS items could use some love and remove the darn complex items to craft them. Their fitting requirements are great..but no one can build them due to the crazy items needed. The skill requirement should remain.

Supported.

COSMOS is a good thing that enhances the overall experience of EVE.

However, lots of love is needed.
