I think it would be great if Super Capitals could Dock at a station equipped with a Mooring Buoy/Docking Ring.

This could be strictly 0.0

1. Pilot approaches the buoy or marker


2. The pilot selects dock

3. An auto pilot would maneuver the ship to position and dock it. This will take time, it should not be instant.
Its a hugh ship and should take time.

4. The ship would remain outside in space at the docking Buoy/Ring
A. The ship would become NON-TARGETABLE
B. The ship would remain docked until undocked OR the station is captured.

5. The Pilot is then placed in the station but NO ship is displayed as if you just cloned.

Note:
1. There should only be x number of Docking Slots by default.
2. Additional slots could be added with a Station Upgrade.
3. Docking Permittions are controlled with the station services and can be assigned by character/corp/alliance.
4. Permittions on a slots can not be changed while in use.
5. Permittions are revoked on all slots if the station is captured.

That would be quite cool to see like 8 moms and 3 titans docked at an outpost or something!!!!

Love that Idea, Lets see how long it takes CCP to enable that feature, also would be neat if you could sell them from there also! :)

I agree. This is something that should have been implemented some time ago.

You have been accused of training too many capital skills.
Your sentence is, life in a Titan?

I have little or no interest in putting millions of SP into training for a ship that eventually will be a prison, and make millions of my already earned SP nearly useless.

This is a great idea. I only see a couple of problems. First, how do you plan to keep anyone from stealing the docked supercap? Would it have some sort of key spawn in your hangar? Second, if you were to sell supercaps this way, what is to keep someone from just bubbling your supercap once you take ownership?

My read is that this is just allowing the supercaps to dock like any other ship, but making them visible outside the station, and limiting the number of supercap ships per station.

This would actually have a probable effect of increasing the number of 0.0 player-built outposts...

Great idea Salmack. Too many players with high SP get 'locked' into a supercap. Docking rings would be a good way to address the issue and promote the construction of outposts plus make more players willing to fly supercaps.

Alternatively make them fully dockable with outpost like a regular ship, just limit the number of docking bays that can be assigned to players, corps or alliances.

I /signed but isn't it possible to put a super cap in a POS hangar? It's still a good idea. Even if you can put a Titan in a POS hangar, you can't get it out when it goes in to reinforce, or can you? I assume the hangar goes off line and the ship is locked in there.. The point, I don't think you are truly doomed to Titan or Mothership prison. I'd be very stingy with my POS access..

Nice idea however a few things to think about.

1) What happens if the module is destroyed would you lose the titan?
2) Imagine the titan's bump
3) If sov changed hands and you haven't moved do you lose your titan?
4) If you don't lose it does this mean you can undock in a hostile system?

I think it should happen but be dangerous to dock one then it'd be reserved for sov 4 systems :)

Good points, but I'd be nice if It could just work like a normal docking thing...
1. Forcing the titan to undock maybe would be nice ? This would be kind of a way to force the titan out if it docks (Gotta make it risky to dock too you seeRazz)

2. Maybe have some other docking point for a titan ? Special warp in point so you can just park it next to the outpost like a car, and when undocked, same thing ? Would be really cool Tbh.

3. Again, working like a normal docked ship.

4. Pretty much like that yeah

Well, this is just some ideas of whats possibleugh

Even though I likely will never see a super cap for awhile still I fully support this idea. Heck several gallente stations seem to even have docking piers as part of their design so this seems like it would take very little revamping model wise to do.

It is possible to put a super cap into a Capital Ship Maintance Array, however that is not a secure way to store Billions of isk. Anyone in corp with the proper roles or the POS password can access it and with all the spys and meta gaming you may as well leave it outside a station and eject. Leaving your capital ship in a POS is like keeping all your money in your kitchen drawer.
