Feature request Begin:

Title pretty much says it all. IMO, the JF needs a hanger bay. We're talking a 4.3-4.5 billion ISK ship here. Its supposed to be the most advanced hauler in space, yet it has no hanger bay. Carriers have a hanger bay, but JF's, which are 4 times the cost (or 2 times the cost of a fitted carrier), do not.

The reason for a hanger bay? Pretty simple. That way I (or others I haul for) dont need to repackage their ships and destroy all of their rigs just to get their ships from Point A to Point B.

If rigs were very cheap, probably wouldnt be much of an issue, however T2 rigs are going to be used more and more for Tech 3 ships etc. Not only that but rigs such as Ancillary Current Routers and CCC's can be expensive to replace if you need to transport your ships from location A to location B.

Seems like a serious design flaw to me to have a 4.5 bn ship require that ships be repackaged, thus destroying rigs in order to transport them.

Use a carrier, then? Or an Orca?

Ships already exist to fulfill this purpose.

Or just wrap them up, I think?

It's a goods hauler, not a ship hauler. Get a carrier.

i really dont see why there isn't something that can move rigged ships around in empire. freightor or jf should be able too.

JF's are already way too good. If anything, CCP should remove them altogether tbh. Razz

Thanks to all that responded, some good suggestions there.

Im too lazy to use the quote option so bear with me.

"Use a Carrier" - Well carriers cant haul stuff through high sec, so that eliminates the carrier for high sec haulage. I actually will most likely get a carrier just for low sec/null sec hauling of ships (longer jumps too), but this isnt the intended purpose of the carrier (to be a hauler - as stated by CCP). IMO I shouldnt have to get a carrier just to haul ships without destroying their rigs, just doesnt make sense to me.

"Orca" - Im attempting to figure out atm if the Orca has a decent sized hanger bay? If anyone can confrirm that, that would be great. If it does, this certainly adds weight to my argument. I would think that the most advanced hauler in the game should have a hanger bay if the Orca does.


Edit: Just checked it and it has a 400 000 m3 Hanger bay. Not bad, and could be useful so thanks for the tip on that one!

Orca...


as far as I know, orca can only carry rigged mining and industrial ships. no combat ships of any sort unless you count a battle badger as one.

You're thinking of the Rorqual. The Orca can carry combat ships.

And he means smell like a troll Wink

this man is right. and while im feeling nice ill add that an orca can fit a BC hull, cruiser hull, and frig hull, or of course many frigs, or 2 cruisers and alot of frigs, 3 cruisers and a small frig possibly, depending on the ships. no BS at all can ever fit into an orca rigged. this, i am sure, is by design. no, there is no way to currently increase your ship hanger size.
