Placing the horse back on the first page.

The Devs should look at it every bloody day and be embarrassed. The sheer volume of the positive response to this idea is unprecedented on this forums. And, what do we get back from the CCP? ..."funky POS idea"...."too hard"..... just makes me want to vomit, really.

CCP get off your collective bums, not that we do not appreciate so much cool new stuff, and fix the biggest pain in the arse in EVE after lag, that is right, to me personally, the biggest pain, after lag is POS in its current form, and always have been.

Day in, and day out, your players - CCP - have to deal with the most mind numbing, time consuming, ugly, unsightly, cumbersome, ungainly, lame, clubfooted, collection of dregs ever created! Please fix the damned thing already!

You fixed, a lot, some terrible UI issues, you have fixed, a lot of lag, you have balanced the ships (some would say nerf), you redesigned the damned stargates, you are expanding the god damned universe for crying out loud, why the hell do we have to beg you for years to fix the POS, years guys, aren't you even slightly embarrassed by it? Is there anyone reading this blinking forum who has some decency to come out and tell us something about this?

Whatever.... I am just disgusted tonight, I do not even expect any dev to read it, they are too busy doing other thing....

I really like this over the current system of POSes.
It not only looks nice it's has a cool layout!
Also I think everyone really wants to see some new POSes and changes to them and the way they function.

This has to be the best idea i have ever seen!!
Not only will it look better, less time consuming and easy,
It will bring more and more carebares into low sec and 0.0
(because of how easy and quicker to deploy a pos would be)
Which is great.

CCP here is your next expansion! Get to work ;-)

Do humans still work there or is it all just robot there?

I encourage everyone to tell their CSM representatives to bring this up again and again till it is something that CCP understands we the players would like to have.

There are lots of things wrong with Eve in my opinion.

The way POSes "Fit Together" isn't one of them.

The thing your picture looks like is an outpost, which players are already able to build. The fact that modules don't link together in POSes doesn't damage their functionality at all, and in fact helps with organization.

As it is right now, pilots organize POSes in ways that make sense to them. Putting corporate hanger arrays in one place and mining arrays in another. They already take forever to put up and take down, why would we want to play tinker toys or Tetris with them as well?

Wow, someone finally said something negative. (yes there is some at the start but for the last 2 years I haven't seen anyone post something negative about this)

Let me guess, you don't work with or have anything to do with POS's other than to use them as shields. I have yet to meet another Industrial POS owner that likes the way they have to set them up. 0.0 people are usually indifferent or don't like it as well.

Right now, the floating modules get in the way, organizing them is more a matter of trying to make sure you can get to what you want without getting bumped around by the other parts.

Also one would think it would be quicker to put up something next to another object rather than randomly somewhere that is nearby by not quite next to it.

Aside from all that, it looks awful and I work with my POS's every day and it never looks like a Player Owned Starbase (why it is called that is beyond me, first Players can't own them Corps do, and second they aren't Stations or Starbases the are control towers that have modules floating around should be Corp Owned Control-towers) We would like to see something like a space station not an after thought of something that should have been.

To Red Flag, aka trollflag. Sure there is a lot of wrongs in the game. But EVE is supposed to be, among other things, a graphically attractive game, and the way POSes look is closer to a graphical ABOMINATION.

Another reason for this suggestion is realism (inside the frame of whats realistic in this game). It seems all POS modules are equipped with nigh-unlimited range matter and energy transporters, seamingly invisible. How come our ships cant teleport loot out of wrecks 25km away?

Following this suggestion that the OP posted, you could have a visually appealing and realistic POS.

To make deployment less of a nightmare, it would be good to implement a grid system. Seeing as the OPs modules are fairly square, it would be quite suitable to have a module taking up 1 cube of the grid, or two, if its a larger piece of equipment.

This thread gets every thumbs up i have at my disposal, hope its being seriously considered SOON.

Another thing about these is you could buy different powering mechanisms such as like a fusion reactor (requires no fuel) to types that require fuel and are much cheaper than a self sustaining power source.

Now here is a new good idea... However I wouldn't want reactors that consume no fuel at all... Sort of wouldn't be balanced unless there is a catch.

Maya Rkell, there is no need to be a complete ass about someone's idea...
Otherwise I do think that POS shoudl change a bit, I do like your designs, and it makes sense..

Good luck, and don't pay attention to ass's like Maya!

Catch could be the expense of the self sustaining power as well as the decline of power it produces, whereas a fueled power producing system can do like 65% more power and is nearly 75% cheaper.

Another thing, I kinda like the floating guns though, those are really the only decent part about the current soap bubbles we have.

Second idea: I know this has been posted before somewhere down the line but if you (CCP) introduced these new POS styles then the possibility of mining planets could be introduced (build a POS big enough you can orbit around planetary body.) Or perhaps if they produced enough power they can be equipped with anti-gravitational shields wherein they could be drop into gas giants (planets) to harvest the gases and other materials flying around. Finally how about some Planet ring mining eh?

i posted in this thread several times,and sadly nothing has changed
CCP is giving us cool stuff to fly in,but doing NOTHING about a system that defines the alliance borders,power and economic abilities in whole damn 0.0

as much as i like CCP for doing so much other stuff,i hate them just as much for ignoring this

so

Seems like the only thread and idea that is near-universally loved.
Maya does make good points, but considering all the effort and changes that have been implemented in these two and a half years, I would think that CCP would be able to expend the effort to improve substantially the POS system.

They are making POS's even more important with the addition of T3 ( http://myeve.eve-online.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=995617 )
Please implement this idea soon.

I thought this idea and those graphics where originally from Graalum, were they not? Thanks for resurrecting this post - now where is the OP?

Awesome Idea CCP - Do it!Very Happy (similar to the modularity of the new Tech 3 ships coming out soon)
