So I have a Large POS and I want to replace it with a Small POS.

What do I need to do? I was hoping I could offline and unanchor everything except for the CT & Corporate Hangar Array (CHA), and put everything inside the CHA. Then offline the CHA and unanchor it. Then offline the Large POS and unanchor it. Then launch the small POS and anchor it / online it / re-anchor the CHA and online it / then rebuild the POS from out of the CHA.

Is that the optimal way to replace a POS? If not why not, and how would you do it more optimally?

Thanks in advance

Everything must be unanchored for you to unanchor the control tower. Sorry.

If you don't require that particular moon, the best bet is to be setting up a new tower and onlining that as you are offlining and unanchoring the old one. Otherwise, you are going to be in for a long day.

Thanks for the response. By this do you mean that I cannot unanchor the CHA whilst it is full of other POS modules? Or do you mean that I simply need to unanchor everything (ie leave it where it is and then re-anchor when the new CT is online)?

I need the materials from the moon it is on so going to an alternative moon isnt an option :(

And DONT remove the fuel or offline the POS until EVERYTHING is unanchored... You cant unanchor anything when the POS is offline...

Got caught on this a few times with forgotten gun emplacements Embarassed

Modules have to be empty before you can unanchor them, and all modules have to be unanchored before the tower can be unanchored. You can, however, leave the modules unanchored in space while you switch towers, but anyone can come along and scoop them. A ship with a sizeable cargo bay is advised. If your corp has a capital industrial ship, it might be a good idea to bring it along and store the modules inside while you switch towers.

or just put a moon miner and a silo on the current tower
