Currently there is only one time of gas per region. This really makes no sense and hinders the production of boosters.

Any type of gas cloud should appear in any region. Of course some would be rarer then others but it should be possible to do any type of booster production in 0.0 and lowsec.

Who knows? Maybe people would actually use boosters then :P

so you want ccp to break gas mining for a couple of weeks so you never have to leave your constellation to make boosters that nobody buys Shocked

Rolling EyesSomeone has never left hi-sec before have they? Boosters are used frequently out side of hi-sec.

If the next expansion has anything to with boosters I would expect some changes to gas cloud harvesting are on the way, like increased spawning in all regions. Its quite a neglected profession right now :(

I cant think of a single person who actually mines gas. I did it once just for fun and because I had pos space but it really was totally not fun or worth it! I like the idea in the OP it would actually get me to go out and harvest :P

yea I have made boosters before and its pretty tough actually making decent ones. because you have to get gas from random regions and no one actually mines it, the cost to make the top boosters is so high that no one even bothers because no one is going actually buy one.

Right now it is a novelty idea but if OPs idea actually went through it would make it an actual industry that you could do for more then just fun !

I agree, atm gas-harvesting is pretty pointless... and while people may use boosters in low/null I imagine it is not a majority, since most players are in high. I know that I personally don't use them [much] and know no one in 2 years of playing that does either - make or use.

Not only should CCP break up gas, but also ore and ice into randomized systems all over EVE - the whole idea of low-sec/null being better raw materials is flawed - it doesn't make people go there or risk all, it makes for stuck solid power-blocks and cold-war/hot-war territorial shifts, it's all macro game. CCP should have seen this from the get go - and it's why micro game suffers, no one can get into the "great open vastness of space and beyond" because they are mapped, locked and blocked.

This is a good idea, and I +1 it, also I suggest that they unblock [more paths in and out] unlock [kill SOV completely] and unmap [randomize it] all, all of EVE - if the resources move, people have to actually play to get at them, means no more passive empires, you have to be willing to more, take and then move again, means that persons can explore for real, not just hit DOT maps for the best systems and then hot-drop in with an alliance or two... it would mean some freedom and access to it for the average player...

Now that suggested to the company that just seems to have come into the "Mine is mine and yours in mine and his is mine and none of you get nothing mind set" may be a problem...

I have never used a booster but I think the idea is cool. Too bad they are totally not worth it and super hard to find :(

Leaving a constellation is different from having to move to the other side of the galaxy map. I agree with the OT.

wormholes are not useful?

They should make gas clouds into easy(ish)-to-find nebula with all the SciFi bell and whistles that go with it:
- Invisible to sensors from outside (Off-grid).
- Various effects like warp disruption, shield degradation, capacitor instability etc.
Like the Comet idea really, relatively rare phenomenon with huge risks and rewards when done.

Current system with NPC guards and AoE damage is just uninspired in the extreme Sad

Cool idea but warp disruption would kinda suck :P

Although if you know you need to fit a WCS or two to get out it would make that type of gas more valuable!
