Pilots stuck in Supers (Titans)

I was reading through some old CSM minutes, and I saw the issue of high SP characters stuck in Titans, and other caps, raised. This has been discussed quite a bit, and perhaps someone has already though of my idea, but I thought why not share, if it may make the game a bit better (I don't even own a cap).

So my idea is to allow Titans, and maybe Supercarriers to enter a sort of 'stationary' mode, basically allowing the pilot jc out. It might be necessary to restrict this only to supers inside POS shields, to prevent sneaking supers into a system from becoming too OP a tactic, but that's it. This ship itself should either disappear, or stay inside the POS shields, unable to be boarded or otherwise ****** with.

Of course, coalitions and alliances will want to have a good number of deployable supers at all times, but that's a strategic decision.

This also already happens to some extent with holding characters. I'm not sure how widely adopted those are, and besides, my proposed method of doing it seems way more convenient.

So what do you think?

those that are complaining shouldn't have a super then as most super pilots have alts since this game is based on what you can do with how many alts you have

Then alliances will be able to stockpile titans and supers without concern for having pilots for them.

That's a hilariously bad idea. Supercapital proliferation is a big enough problem as it is.

On the other hand, proliferation would not be a problem if supers were balanced in line with all of the other ship classes, so even docking in supers could be feasible as a part of a very large balancing effort that brings supers into the whole rock-paper-scissors thing.

Supers can already be stored inside a POS. There is an anchorable POS structure already in game, specifically designed to hold an assembled capital: The X-Large SMA

Now, the problem is these are very unsecure, as many of the corp roles allow corpmates to **** with the POS: Offline the POS, remove the Fuel from the POS, take the super out of the SMA, etc.

There is also the logistical difficulty in boarding the Super from the XLSMA in a manner that doesn't result in you bumping yourself out of the POS.

iirc there was talk of possibly having an external titan docking upgrade for outposts where each upgrade allows 1 titan to be docked externaly per upgrade p to some undetermined max amount so the starbase shield is extended around the titan and is made targetable once the starbase shields are down and can be blown up once that happens
