Some of us in EVE move around a whole bunch through areas where we are greatly inconvenienced by the inability to refit our ships. Whether it's nullsec roaming or wormhole diving, sometimes you just can't dock up and refit. So something that we could shove in our cargo to do this would be fantastic.

Here's the basic idea: An anchorable structure that fits your ship.

I don't care about the specifics beyond that. Make it take five minutes to anchor and unanchor. Make it unanchorable anywhere above .1 sec. Make it have massive skill requirements. Make it cost 300 million isk. I don't care. I'll wait, I'll train it, I'll pay it, because it'd be damn useful and I'd sacrifice the cargo space for it. And with a mobile lifestyle, cargo space means a lot.

There are already plans for smallholding. If you don't make this part of it, you're doing it wrong. But having it before 2013 or whenever the nullsec overhaul comes out would be great.

On a more serious note, they'd likely be scannable like structures are at a pos, easy to pin down. I could see these popping quite a bit if you're timing is bad on where you place it...

Oh yes, definitely scannable from the word go. Goes hand in hand with the possible long anchoring time as a risky thing to use. It should always only be used when you need it enough to risk it, and if it's only anchorable in 0.0/wormholes, having to wait ten minutes to anchor, use, and unanchor makes for great balancing when there are scanners who could comfortably find you, go dock, come back, probe you out, dock again, and kill you with their new ship in that amount of time.
