how about we come out with a new type of depoyable outpost, would cost about a billion to build. and like the current outposts would require soverienty to deploy. It would be strictly a hanger/outfit station with one office (default to the corp that built it) no other services besides refiting and possibly repair (in exhange for maybe POS fuel) same rules with outposts apply accept its not capturable but it is distroyable.

this would fill a gap between the current hangers/refiting arrays in POSs and the full blown outposts.

Why not capturable? Small bases like that could make for good toe holds in larger engagements. Could be fun! Especially since someone went to the trouble to spend 1 bil isk for it.

Interesting idea. How would you solve the problem of only one outpost per system? At 1 billion I can foresee whole constellations would be occupied by these micro outposts and all the strategic systems for PvP,PvE and Mining would soon have one occupying them.

In addition, it would remove the need for POS mining since these Outposts could be docked by Freighters allowing ore from distant mining ops to be transported back to a refining station.

I can see therefore why you have suggested destroyable rather than capturable, but given this could you not achieve your desire with improved user-friendly POS hangar and refitting arrays rather than the weak, hard to use, current POS modules?
