As the subject suggest I propose that CCP add moon goo to wormholes. Basicly this means that on moons in wormhole space you can mine materials from just like in <0.4. These materials vary from moon to moon. Said wormhole moons will contain a number of both rare (like technetium) and common moons.

Pros:
Less fluctuation in T2 ship production costs when nullsec alliances sh*t bricks

Less market control from large alliances over rarer materials

May encourage more players into wormhole space (from both low/null and high)

Gives more reason to fight over valuable WH systems, feeding the wonderful war machine that is eve Twisted Evil

Requires more logistical effort from wormhole users again allowing for more PvP

Cons:
Less predictable price fluctuations in moon goo prices

May dent the already damaged income of the nullsec alliances (not that they need it - could be a pro as it means less supercaps)

Please comment if you can think of any other Pro's / Con's to this.

cheers

Will push WHs more and more into 0.0

You should not be able to get all your resources from inside a WH. One of the issues that make WHs so different from the rest of Eve Space is the logistigs of getting items like moongoo into your WH.

I would accept a moon depletion mechanic within wormholes. Moon meterials randomly respawn at the end of every month (the same moon gives different meterials each month).

I suggest this in order to encourage a more nomadic wormhole lifestyle. I always disliked the idea of setting up camp in a wormhole and farming ad infinitum. By having valuable emterials move around a bit, we might see some moonchasers pop up.

The reason this isn't allowed is because of wormhole mass restrictions - if a mining POS is set up correctly it can be extremely difficult to take down without a very large number of battleships or a capfleet, and because such fleets are extremely difficult to assemble in wormspace it would effectively mean risk-free moon mining for whoever got their towers planted first.
