why is the main trade hub in eve the same station model as many of the others?

How do all those people fit, did they sack scotty and get the Doctor to fit a tardis field instead?

Will we ever know?

Seriously why is this? surely jita station needs to be massive made up of lots of addon bits as it grew over time sort of thing

Time for a new jita station model - anyone else agree with this?

i always thought that they should scale station models, as in, the more traffic through the amrket they get, the bigger the station is, with the biggest being the main trade hub (jita in this case) which would be 3 times the size of a normal station and have its very own unique design, since it obvioulsy gets influence from all 4 races since it IS the main trade hub (because of the palyers, yes, but i see alot of minnie and gally players going through). so it would stand that with that many people coming and going everyday it would be a MASSIVE station.

I like it. The grandeur of a station should be measured by its prosperity, which can only be measured by the volume of trade ( and brokers fees) that are funneled through it. Jita should be an expansive station with multiple launch bays and an equally large docking radius.

Jita was never designed to be the central trading hub, the players just turned it into that over time. I'd much rather CCP focus on fixing bugs or correct balance issues than monitoring the activity level in stations and redesigning them to be more grandiose. There's far bigger fish to fry.

If the scale of items would ever be in the focus, the issue would not be limited to only station(s).

However there are much more important issues at the moment, which actully affect the gameplay. This is purely cosmetic and has very low priority.

i always thought the whole mass station undock and trade hub stations were really badly scripted/set up.

stations 1) should be bigger in general and 2) should have multiple undocks.

it just makes sense from a design aspect :)

Supported, and btw everyone in this thread, it is CCP that decides what is low priority, NOT YOU! the only thing we need to do is tell them what we Support and Dont Support.
