Ok sry fr just saying bump. I figured if the Devs saw how much we like this they would pay attention. I do wanna say how much fun this looks to be. Everyone who is in POS's in EVE would love to have this system along with cool new structures and things to do in 0.0 . As an added suggestion tho. I think right now Control Towers are being over extended. They are being forced to provide for T2 as well as lawless space control. I dont see how it makes sense to have a space structure being used for industrial purposes claim territorial control. That's like saying Oil Rigs in the Gulf of Mexico claim control of the Gulf for their owners, even though they have no capability of carrying armaments to defend that claim. Sure you could pile the guns on to the structure but its not a hardened battle platform, its an Oil rig. However if said corps wanted to ensure the survival or its Oil Rigs, the could deploy a second battle hardened defensive platfrom (the new starbase system described in this thread) to protect their Rigs. And of course the battle platform could be deployed alone with no Rig to protect, only space. This makes sense to me. It does not make sense to make an industrial structure devote energy to protecting itself when over half of that energy is being taken by the industrial operations themselves.

My 2cents.

Seeing how it has been 10 days since the last time someone voiced a need for this, I am gonna kick the horse. Also, I am pasting a compressed version with links again. So people who are not yet familiar with the notion - if there are any left that haven't seen this thread - can see it in full glory.

this is too good an idea to be down at page 9.

This idea needs serious consideration from the devs. and at least a reply.

There is no more important development required than to do something with the underwhelming sight of a pos today.

so please CCP read this and answer this thread.

looking at how many pages "A Miners Cause" is, and knowing that an ORE Capship was something devs intended to do.......fills me with despair Crying or Very sad

As everyone here has said this idea is brilliant. Nothing too hard to accomplish. They even used the similar method in Russian space station Mir and the International one today! :) Anyhow, from the very beginning when I started playing EVE I truly loved the rough and hard believable environment, space, structures, ships... everything. Only POS system seemed to be a bit half way done... not just quite there. I truly would love to see a POS similar to this new idea. Believable graphics and system for POS'!

Excellent upgrade to the current POS system. Very well thought out, presented, and portrayed.

I endorse this product.

Now run along my Dev minions and get to it. Razz

Sory to burts your buble, even tho the idea is supurb. What he is proposing, is worth 25-30bil isk and is called OUTPOst. If poses looked like this no body would invest in outposts. so in my opinion this will never be realised. as lot of ppl in O.O would get ****ed they spend billions on a POS!!

Once again great idea tho.

excuse me, but how is this a proposal to transmute POSs into outposts?

the core of the discussion is merely a graphical/aesthetic consideration - to make POSes a series of physically atatched modules, rather than free-floating particles, and giving it a better sense of cohesion.

POS expandability etc were separate ideas brought forwards by others.

Right, it wouldn't make it any more powerful or anything, simply a visual upgrade and a bit more convenient as far as having arrays strwen all over the place. This really is a great idea, amazing 3D work by evel, btw.

Someone give the OP a ****ing cookie!

This was fantastic, we should be able to dock into our posses - not just view a bunch of silly structures from inside a warp bubble.

5/5!!!

CMon Devs... We need some comments from you here...
Something like:
"There are discussions going on about this topic"
or
"This will never happen"
is welcome... But cmon we need you here.

I personally like his idea very much and would love to see this implemented in Rev3

im wondering whether the total silence by devs is because one of them saw this, said "holy poop batman!", and its being secretly coded now as a Trinity2 surprise....


i hope ='(

Granted putting a clone bay in there, would drastically alter the balance of the game, the other ideas are fantastic. Theres just something... nice... about being able to sit in a station. Making pos's destroyable mini stations would really enhance the game.

This is a great idea and needs implementing ASAP.
I will donate a case of beer to the developers if they do it in the next patch.

(I am safe in the knowledge that it will not happen, and I could just keep the beer for myself).

if it goes flat while we wait for the devs, we could always put it through a sodastream Laughing


anyway, im presuming that most of the devs will be focussing on Rev3 or the new graphics engine now, so im not sure they will have time to rebuild all the POS modules and rewrite some of their code when they are already rebuilding all ships etc ingame

It should have been like this from start tbh. POS management is too much of a chore as it stands.

wow just wow. This would be a great change.

In my opinion you nail 2 birds with one stone with 0.0 Population/POS issues.

Being able to dock will help promote 0.0 growth (look ccp, what u want!!)

It would also help lower lag (need for speed!), stop "Bumper Car Games" with the modules

And of course it would just look really cool. So there you have it, 2 very Valid Reasons that CCP want to promote, and of course the cool factor.

I saw my first POS just the other day. I must say, I was far from impressed. Like others have stated, it looks like a mess of components hovering in space. After looking at the OP's designs, I would have been blown away if seeing THOSE for the first time in game (textures and all). Excellent idea, great creativity and design from OP, and has my full support. Lets get the ball rolling on this Devs!

Yep still a great post. This is a great start on the future of player owned structures in EVE. I HOPE the devs will soon realize how much we want these.

My first reaction on a POS: "What, did somebody forget to fasten the modules together?"

It's ugly, and it requires you to move everything around to try and make clear traffic channels (with invisible bumping walls that make it look like you've left a walkway when infact you have no space to maneuver through it). This design fixes both of these things.

Approved.

I feel I need to remind people that if you really want a better POS, this thread represents a best possible solution to a problem.

Please show your support by posting here CONSTRUCTIVELY, perhaps outlying the current issues you have with the POS and how you see those issues resolved with the new design.

The above represents a BUMP, after a fashion.Very Happy
