Frieghters currently have no slots..this is wrong. Customizing your ship is a big part of eve.

I propose frieghters be given 3 rig slots.
Over all cargo would be reduced on the frieghters so that when thay are fitted with cargo rigs they equal there current cargo capacity.

The idea is that you do not always need or want all that storage but there are no other options. Maybe you want to fit agility rigs to align faster. Maybe you want some tank rigs to be tougher..all at the expense of cargo.

This gives us more options and allows plays to balance the pro's and con's of a given fit.

PS
Rigs rather than slots because it is usefull to armor and shield tankers and forces players to chose between the desirable stats they want.

Choice is good so I would support this if, and only if, the cargo capacity of all freighters were nerfed so that it took 3 T1 cargo rigs to get to the size we have now. Then you could choose between cargo or whatever else you wanted to rig for without having caps and freighters being able to fit in the cargo.

I would make it 3 Tech 2 rigs, rather than Tech 1, but I agree with the principle of your statement. The max allowable cargo space should still be under 1 million m3 with max skills and all rigs. As long as that limit is maintained, I have no problem with this.

You can't equip 3 T2 Cargo Expander rigs due to calibration. 2XT2 and 1XT1 is the best possible.

You're right, of course. I think the basic principle remains unchanged though. All combinations of rigs + skill level must yield cargo space < 1,000,000 m3.

So supported.

Also introduces additional sinks into the game and also may need multiple freighters depending on what you do.

Also not hauling rigged ships is dumb as you just make a contract for it. stupid mechanic.
