I would be very surprised if this hasn't been brought forth as an idea before though going back several pages I found no topic which related specifically to this, my eve-search link to look at the forums wasn't working (buggy pos...), and Mittani's "POS Misery" topic seemed more about small UI fixes. (Or people are posting POS related issues when they should be talking about Outposts...idk nvm.)

Now I remember in some topic I was reading through a LONG time ago, someone proposed allowing Outposts to be destroyed but a response from CCP was that they had tried to test it but it actually caused a lot of problems. Well if you can't destroy an Outpost, why not just unanchor it and go on from there?

The idea is that once you have sufficient sovereignty in a system (the same required to build an Outpost to begin with) the owner may unanchor the Outpost and essentially deconstruct it. From this point they may pack everything up and move it to another orbit inside the system or to another system all together, or they could take the components to the next nearest station and reprocess them.

If you can build and anchor them, logically, why shouldn't you be able to unanchor and recycle them? Maybe Providence will get a little cleared up now XD

If I truly was blind in my topic search I apologize for my nubness.

A variant of this his has been proposed before:


Abandoned POSes are a problem all over EvE and it does need to be sorted out.

Do you have reasoning?

I vote make them be destroyed. Not packed up and moved though.
