We need the possibility :
- to carry Rigged ships in freighter cargo, restrictions could be ship must be unfitted (execpt rigs) and empty cargo to make the difference with others ship's capabilities.
- to carry other types of unpackaged cargo containers (ie: Giant, huge, medium and small)


thx to check that

You can do that already. just make a courier contract for the ship. the courier contract limit got increased to the size of the largest freighter a few patches back. now you can carry up to 2 fitted and rigged battleships in a freighter.

Yes, the courier workaround exists, but it should be possible to do it without needing to flip things between alts and ruin insurance. And I'm fine with carrying containers only if they're packaged - no cargo expansion on freighters.

Having a work-around is not the same as a working mechanic.

They will never (or should never) let you put assembled cans in a freighter. The reason should be obvious-- a GSC takes up 3k space, but holds 3.9k. Its the same reason why carriers (can no longer) carry ships with anything but ammo and charges in thier hold.

Secondly, it just doesn't make sense to put assembled ships into a freighter. It would be akin to bringing an assembled tent in your car when you go camping in the woods.

no it would be like putting a assembled car in the hold of a truck which makes sense to me. or would you take it apart and then transport it?Laughing

Why not simply make a ship class that can carry assembled ships but has no jump drive?
Make it slightly larger than the carriers ship bay, maybe 3 BS sized. And utilize all the rules of regular Ship Maintenance Bay transport. Suddenly, you've solved the highsec movement issue.

As for the assembled cans. I don't see it happening at all. Use courier contracts. Otherwise, as mentioned, it will make their holds ridiculously large for the devoted pilot.

This. Some items are meant to be easily assembled and disassembled for transport. Ships, imo, do not fall into that category once they have been rigged.

Hes talking about moving a vehicle not a dwelling, so your analogy is way off. When i brought my car to the states from germany they did not disassemble it before putting it on the transport ship. it was transported and delivered in one peice.

I support this idea.
