Too many people abandoning rookie ships... Too many people jettisoning their left over escape pods.

I swear you can't tell what ships have people in them anymore..

Shouldn't they say abandoned on them?

An abandoned ship will still have the players name, corp, ect.. It looks like a real player sitting out there.. Same goes for escape pods. They both should say derelict or abandoned. But they don't. Sometimes you see derelict...But that's just because the client hasn't received server info on the ships owner yet.

Dunno.. Kind of annoying is all..

Since everyone and their mother is leaving these empty ships and pods lying around just about everywhere.

EDIT: You CAN "Self Destruct" these ships after you leave them in space you know. Same goes for pods.

Many of these people are hoping that some unsuspecting newbie would shoot it. In hopes that the police blow up the said suspects.

I have seen three capsules from the same person in space at the same time in the same area. That need to be fixed so they don't clutter the area.

Sounds like it could become a possible exploit.

Yeah.. it's getting worse..

Pretty soon you will have to wait 5 minutes to eject.. lol..

As suggested above, show that it is abandoned. And make it so there will be no penalties for blowing abandoned pods, ships. So you could unclutter the area, or just for the hell of it.

Maybe just giving people a chance to get rid of pods and n00b ships would be a better idea.

Trash compactor anyone?
