We may open the doors to allowing more than one outpost to be anchored/built in a sovereign system. We are still investigating the technical limitations and a few gameplay issues associated with this and will make a final decision in the coming weeks.


Yes please.

For the simple reason to make 0.0 a more "habitable" place. It would make "smaller entities" capable of having everything they need within that system. If infrastructure in the form of station types and upgrades are required for making the system better then I think it should be so that you can build multiple stations. Multiple stations also gives a system a good capability for various S&I activities. If you have one of each stations in the system then you got everything you will need to build a "empire" in 0.0. It also means that more people can be in that system doing whatever they like. The security you get from it is also better. Everyone in the same system means that they are more protected from harm.

The balance issues arising from implementing this is probably many and that's what I want to discuss. What problems do you people suppose comes with multiple outposts?

good idea, how about outposts and maybe dockable stations at great expense in non sov space ie wormholes

in the future that would be interesting but for now it's not "possible" due to the sleepers dominating i would presume and not to mention it would kill the whole "We are alone out in nowhere" feeling.

well they could end up like the low sec "dongas" or mini accomdation points, mini outposts with perhaps basic services in wormhole space and mini me poor man upgrades ( of course the "outpost" could be destroyable to )

I brought up the 0.0 station situation because a dev mentioned it being up for talk at ccp. This is why the thread is in this forums and not ideas forum.

Talking about WH space stations would perhaps do best in another thread as it is another issue.

so extend the multiple outpost in 00 idea to wormhole space and its pretty easy to do.

imho wormhole space should stay without outposts.

ok strip out the outposts what about slightly altered POSes that can serve as docking points ? would be a simple station ok how about this

Wormhole POS twice as expensive as regular pos. Has shields and pos guns. If its destoryed so be it but ..... instead of the ct and all the mods u have like infustructure hub mini. Mods are attached on outside but u can dock and as long as the mods are in range ( fitting refining) u can "dock" with this modified pos and use all the services inside.

Thats as far as it would stretch would be like some of the anamoly sites u see with casinos and whatnot. or an upgrade point outside pos shields that u could allow standings wise other ppl to dock. Just thinking allowed here it would use ice fuel and what not and have all the usual pos limits but maybe pos plus module for womrhole space only

That's still pretty much an outpost. WH space is not meant to be inhabited...

Nothing makes space seem familiar and safe like the ability to dock.

Living out of a POS or an anchored GSC is always going to feel somewhat tenuous but as soon as you have a secure hanger of your own, a station to spin ships in...etc you feel more permanent.

And WH space is designed to feel tenuous. Adding docking in WHs would make them feel too safe.

well it wouldnt be safe if the pos and as a outcome the docking zone got blown up then they would log in to a pod in space. So there would be that risk outcome. But seems a bit clearner and would tie in with walking in space - only downside would be no cloning or jumping facilities and limited storage as per the total hanger capacity attached to pos
