If you have ever been near a POS, let alone used one, they are buggy. Not just the functional aspect, but the graphics aspect as well.

I've seen towers sideways. I've seen towers bouncing around inside their shields. I've seen towers pinwheeling. I've seen towers that flip sideways every time a weapon hits it.

Whether the "dead horse" proposal (which seems to show up once every week or so and get hundreds of support votes before being replaced by another iteration) or simply fixing what currently exists, something should be done. With the modular stuff showcased blatantly in Tech 3 ships, a modular POS (as suggested here) would seem the less lag-tastic approach.

Despite not being remotely concerned to this at the moment since i can't operate a POS quite yet, I foresee the day when this will apply to me. /signed.

Yep, pos could be a really cool and fun thing to play with, just like ships are now, but on a different scale. The current setup just makes them a necessary evil that everyone hates.

CCP already did a mastermind's job by creating modular ships and (*cough,cough*) balancing them. All they need to do in order to keep the poor horse from being endlessly flogged is rinse and repeat, right? Wink
Come on, give the wizkids at Art Department another challenge,
and give us that bloody horse... uhm... POS!

I dunno... if somebody keeps smirking and quietly watching other people crying their lungs out, yet doesn't lift a finger - for years! Wouldn't that show a certain level of sadism? No offense though. Cool

With the new soverignty structures it seems like CCP is taking a progressive approach to walking into this. They have removed Soverignty mechanic from Pos'es and done what appears to be a modular setup on those structures.

Now its a matter of gradually moving the existing archaic pos code over to the simplified modular format.

But, that said, we need to keep the pressure on them...

Poor horse, CSM / CCP please put the horse out of its torment.

By horse i mean players (who are a bit hoarse from all this ranting).

Can't support this, as I do not like the idea of modular POS's with limited attachment points. POS's with high/med/low slots, no thanks.

Fitting slots would be no different then the current PG/CPU limits we have, IT would be comparable to how it is today, as to what you could fit on and couldn't, the main reason for fitting slots per say, was to make modular management easier then it currently is, though that can be put on debate in the thread itself if you like, please bring it up :)

Also keep in mind, this thread is to support the basic Idea's in the OP post, not everything anyone else posts after that, though some of it should be considered by ccp.

This has been on my mind ever since before I was a CSM candidate, or the CSM even existed. I've put a lot of thought into the process, and have come up with what I consider a very eloquent solution, although it's just the framework. You can view the work* I've put into it at the following link:


* Not all of the ideas are mine. Heck, even the picture on the first page isn't mine. However, I did put a lot of thought into it, so it should hopefully work out well.

Support this thread. POS's need to be changed, and it needs to happen soon.
