Posted in 2006, two years ago...TWO YEARS!!! Its such a brilliant concept, a sparkling gem of an idea.

And yet...two years on, nothing.

CCP - THIS is the stuff that counts, that elevates a game from 'meh' to 'whoaa coooool!'

I want this idea in the game, not next year, not Soon(tm), I want it in game now. All of the problems of Sov, POS wars et al are right here.

Now get to it!

(oh and a asap dev Blog, that you're on the case aswell).

Indeed. Very little of the much hyped Trinity content impressed.
New GFX = cant use in fleet/gal ships are ugly.
Black Ops = prenerfed
Marauders = made for ratters,
Jump Freighters = too expensive/nerfed carriers.
Heavy dictors = ok these are pretty good.

But this. Package this with an overhaul of the corp roles system and your players will love you.

/signed - this is the best idea - not only the concept of how pos should look like but also the presentation and work that has been put into it - on the ideas forum section.
This is exactly the way most of EVE players would like to see poses look like.

Its the best (hmmm maby add some textures to your images - will be even more astonishing :D).

so good idea,so many bumps,and yet no dev comment
displeasing Sad

if you devs dont like the idea,how about you express yourself "WHY" please ?

Actually, look on the page 13 of this thread...

Bump! Cool

This thread has been seen and looked over several times by the Dev team. It's a very bold and interesting proposal. However any change like this would require a massive amount of development in both programming and artwork. It's not something that could happen overnight.

Having said that, we're well aware of the current state of starbase warfare and it's one of our top post-Trinity priorities for overhaul.


But.... even-though we do have a developer comment, I still say we should express support for the POS overhaul, give developers a polite incentive to make star-bases better.

This post has been around for a very long time, and needs to be kept fresh in the devs, and players minds, this is the way pos's should be.

I still believe, that with possible new mechaniks on horizon for sov. (to reduce blobbing) it might be reasonable to do overhaul for POS'es in general in similar manner presented here. It IS afterall good idea.

I'd love to see POS make more sense. Dock with it to get access to whatever services are provided by the attached modules.

My only modification to the original idea is that the control tower should be like a ship - it has a fixed number of high/medium/low power slots, with each station service occupying one of those slots. The station would also have a power grid (just like a ship) and CPU (just like a ship). The shield generator would come as modules added on to the control tower just like Shield chargers/power relays/shield extenders on ships. The people building the station would then have to work within the constraints - do you sacrifice shield tanking for active hull tanking? Do you sacrifice both for more research facilities? Perhaps your station exists purely to provide hangar and clone vat facilities? Carriers have clone vats, why shouldn't they be available for POS too? Just make the clone vat module sufficiently expensive, with a upgrade option ("T2" station module) for jump clones.

Perhaps lay out the station like a big tray, with modules visually slotting in to fill empty spots on the tray (a POS is like a box of chocolates...). The nearest equivalent that comes to mind is Homeworld, where adding a module to your ship alters its actual appearance (by adding a new box onto the hull). This will prevent stations from becoming sprawling ugly messes.

Different race POS would be laid out in different ways - the Minmatar tend to sprawl in 2 dimensions, for example.

Then when the corp has outgrown the station, upgrade the Control Tower from the 1GW model to the 10GW model, and suddenly you keep all your guns and get four times the capacity for shields.

POS should be something sexy that corporations can look forward to building, not a horrible mess that they just put up with because they have to.

Ours doesn't for the sole reason it looks hideous and would be offputting to spend any length of time near.

You know, page 5 is no place for this thread. It should be permanently visible to every member of the EVE community who visits "Features & Ideas" forum, especially taking into account the age of the issues this thread represents, and the sheer and overwhelmingly positive response the idea has received from the pilots of New Eden from the different walks of life.

They should incorporate this together with the player housing from the "Drawing Board", add to it Corporation Roles overhaul, and Ambulation access - and we shall be golden.

This is what I had expected when I first heard of a "POS". What I actually saw made me laugh. EVE is a game that prides itself on graphics, especially now that the graphics are getting the trinity-facelift.

This would need new code. Lots of it, I can imagine. An interface for construction, once the first module has been placed (control tower I imagine) would be necessary. The rewards though, would be endless. Not to mention, pretty.

This is so /signed.

Well, CCP, you told us to lobby for stuff in the Features and Ideas forum, so that's what I'm doing. Implement this idea or something very close to it. POSes are a weak spot in the game, if you do this, everybody will love it, I guarentee it.

/ signed. Great post!! Also would be cool if there were joints, extensions, and 4-way (0r 3-way) couplers that could be added to this modular idea -- Something similar to those big plastic hamster cages.

Great idea.....a thought (apologies if anyone else already came up with this), why not use a hexagonal shape for each module rather than a square? Granted squares are easier but the hex model allows greater scope for individual design....(hell if you want to get real complicated use an octagon(?){12 sided dice} and allow interlaced stacking of things such as storage modules) and I think would allow easier extension to an existing structure as you can create voids around the old module for access whilst still adding new ones....

might be silly but just a thought...

For my old Corp mate, I have to bump his fantastic idea. CCP I know you've got to have something in the cooker coming up for POSes. I really hope you took Evelgrivion's ideas to heart. It's very elegant and just plain old cool looking.
