Please can we have a cage attached to each ship


... which you can scoop someones pod into rather then podding them.

Every time they log in for a certain amount of time.. say 6 hours... they load up in this cage unable to do anything but talk in cage chat, with anyone else that has been scooped.

They get to watch you doing whatever your doing, killing dudes, flying on autopilot, sat in station, or even get to watch you sit macro mining... bzzzzzt *pause* bzzzzt *pause* bzzzzzt

If the ship is doing anything sensitive then the pilot can draw curtains on the cage so when they log in they are in darkness apart from the other captured pods.

IF a pod has a bounty, and is transported to the local Concord station, the bounty is claimed and the pirate is stuck in the clink for 1 hour for every 50 million isk on his head (maximum of 2 days)


This will achieve several things.


1) Provide an alternative to podding. Once in the cage.. your stuck but your implants are safe

2) Provide pirates with a revenue stream, pods can be released for xxx million isk

3) Stop npc trial alt abuse. Sure you can scout with it but it will be scooped and stuck in a cage for 6 hours so you cant keep charging through camps with it in an ibis RISK VS REWARD INNIT

4) Provide chat with people you would never talk to. Your stuck in a cage, you may as well chat, or even PLAN REVENGE

5) Make there be a point to bountys which are laughable atm


Eve is dying! Give us cages ffs


Also when walking in stations is implemented a pilot can wonder to his brig and mock the pilots trapped in there. Kind pilots could put excercise bikes, poker tables etc in the brig, but right sadists could have a weally nasty dungeon type thing.

Only if self-destructing your pod would still work Razz

You'd need to be able to select your own materials/colors/patterns. It'd be a total disaster of the highest magnitude if your curtains clashed with something.

so what happens if someone grabs your pod then logs off never to return, your stuck in limbo?

while your at it why dont you add the option to biomass whoever you have trapped in your cage? it will save them the effort of doing it themselves.

...which happened to obliterate the agressors ship at the same time, then you could return with ship and scoop him/her into your cage.. then they would repeat, then you, then him, ad infintum.

oh dear, what a terrible, terrible idea.

I fully support the idea of being able to capture other players and hold them prisoner. Podding yourself would set you free of course so in the worst case it's no worse than getting podded is. Best case... you get captured and either negotiate your release, or wait out the timer... whatever that is (perhaps DT). New POS structure called prison... say the same hitpoints as a large gun and located OUTSIDE the shields. That way, your corp or alliance could set you free by blowing up the structure. Skills would train while inside the prison... grid would load, overview and local visible. That is, the prisoner would be able to collect intel.

Anyway... think this would be fun... would involve the use of new mods, tractor beams that could grab a pod and call it into the prisoner bay located on your ship. The prisoner bay would take up a rig slot. No one would need to cancel thier account for being held prisoner as they could always self destruct pod. Pod would need to be tackled before being tractored... this is no worse and actually better than being podded and does not change game balance.

Bring it on I say.

Funny. However, linking the clients would make it an issue.

Also, what would happen if the person with the cage logged off while the one in the cage stayed on? Does your ship then become undockable and stay in space for anyone to take?
