How cool would it be to order in a missile from a POS? Im talking about a nuclear missile like weapon. This would be a very expensive missile that could be launched from a friendly POS if you have permission to from the buyer. This would be like a giant smartbomb. Useful in a very big battles. The missles would have to be expensive enough to prevent it becoming overused. Think of it as an emergency weapon only to be used in times of certain defeat.

I personally think this would be cool. I have no idea if it is smart or not but I just thought of it and decided to share it.

You'd have to strap a warp drive on to the missile... and how would it navigate star gates?. Also.... just.... why?

Unfortunately , Gduran, its probably not practical, for alot of the reasons already stated.

However, good onya for thinking outside the box! Sometimes an idea is just not a go, but other times there lies within it potential to make for a good change. Keep them coming!

how bout have it delivered by some sort of stealth ship thats designed for bombing.

=p

bombs are what you are looking for me thinks. they are too weak/expensive atm but that's the only way to keep them from being overpowered.

The proplem lies in the game mechanics are only created to support engangement betwean targets in a so called "Playfield" this is the aucttle place where you can fight each other, which is roughly 200km radius.

Anything outside its so called not "decetcted" by the game mechanics and if you introduce this to the game right now = crash. Simply put, CCP needs to do some Major updates to the game mechancis, the lock-on system, the damage system, the UI, the entire game mechancis in itself would needed to be overhauled to support this supplement.

How do I know this?
I know some guys who make games.

I agree, CCP has to increase battlefield and enable outer impacts. Then tactical and strategic missles can be created: first ones within system (fitted with warpdrive), 2nd - within some lightyear radius (fitted with jumpdrive).

Though, I don't thinл it's possible. Just a dream. That will require not only engine updates, but change of the whole ingame war concept - where each hit is deadly or provides huge advantage, but to land a succesfull hit, one requires correct and up-to-date information, gathering which will be the first aim of the opponents.

Was thinking about a mini doomsday weapon that people can order in if you have the money... Mostly for attacking a group of cap ships or a big group of BSes. Mostly made to even out the playing field for some of the carebears that move into 0.0 or for a corp that is just starting out.
