I am setting up a research POS. I would like the 3rd mobile lab to be for public corp use and the other two for private or corp use only. Is there a combination of division-roles-titles wiht giant secure containers that can be established. For example if someone wnated to create an alt, put a secure container in the last division or hanger so only they could access their BPO then either remoste research or actually put it in the lab and be secure formthe other corp members.

AFAIK you can't research a BPO if its inside a container - it has to be directly in the corp hanger to remote research it as a POS. You can restrict who has access to a given hanger, and say "okay you keep your BPOS in division 1, you use division 2" etc etc.

Otherwise you can simply put the BPOs on lockdown, that way they can still be researched/manufactured/copied but no one can run off with them until you unlock them. That's how we do it, has the benefit of letting you easily share BPOs without worrying about somebody making an alt and run off with them.

As said before, this is not possible right now. The BPO has to be on the flat floor (no container) of the mobile lab at POS, or at the corp hanger. I tried to convince my CEO to make a special hanger available only to me and not all of corp, so that I could deploy my expensive BPOs in a restricted hanger. This did not work since non-global hanger access does not activate the rights at POS for research.
It seems kinda complicated.

Im curious about this to.

Would this work...
Renting 2 offices in the same system as the pos is (2 npc stations)
Moving HQ into one of the offices
Making sure nobody has hangar access at HQ
Then you can give a guy access to 1 hangar at HQ for exclusively him.

That guy still needs global access to that same division since the POS hangars are "others", to use the pos. Then you can just make sure that corp members only use a limited ammount of research slots.

Our corp is currently fumbling around with this sorta stuff.

Seems like there's no way, to base a member at a specific Station and give only him access to the Hangars and allow him to use the ressources, like mobile labs, from there. Additionally, there seems to be no way either, to give that character access to only specific mobile labs. Needing global access to the hangar the BPO's are located seems just wrong and will encourage more scamming and stealing. I know, we could lock them down, but a friend is joining us to use his own BPO's and research them and I'm quite sure, he wouldn't really like to get them locked down.

This is in my opinion either a bug or a serious game flaw. Please def's, get that fixed !
