+1 for the thread and thanks for keeping it alive.

One side thought, with the advent these new Fuel Blocks, now towers have a fixed consumption rate, no matter if the only thing online is a Corp Hanger or in full manufacture/death star mode.

I believe this is an error that should be addressed.


wait, there's a mode other than full-tilt MFG or deathstar (or dickstar, etc)

Eyjafjallajökull volcano <-- CCP was probably to blame here Blink

Dont see whats so hard about implementing player created ranks

player creates rank

player adds list of available roles to rank

player names the rank

assigns players to that rank


Title assigned roles.

Look into it.

+1 for this idea - long overdue and will improve the Eve experience

I am aware of my own ignorance and have checked my emotional quotient - thanks for asking

This flogging thing seems to be good (at least regarding POS), so please do not stop!

Do not hold back your comments.



This idea is superb! It is long overdue and something I included in my feedback form to CCP after the release of Crucible.

Make it so!

the saddest thing is i read the original flogging thread three years ago, and it had already been flogged for three years before that.

seriously new noob ships? who is asking for that crap?

why is this not a higher priority ?

Its not possible to please all the people all the time, but it sure as hell is possible to Displease all the people, most of the time.

This is a great idea plain and simple. It needs some fixing but the core is sound.

Poses currently are a total waste of space and more of a burden than a total benefit

My turn to flog the dead horse.

I'm not getting much enjoyment out of it. It's just bones shifting about all over the place as I flog it.

But flog it I must, to keep this thread alive.

All of us that have been promoted this thread from the start have been asking the same question.

Really the only thing we want and need from the dev team at CCP is a simple answer to a simple question.

Are you going to implement this idea and if so when?
oh and if not why not?

Every Dev that has posted on this thread and the orginal one has said basically that it is a good idea, but none of them can or will tell us what is going on. I start to think that they do not want to touch the POS and hope that we will get bored of keeping this thread alive.

SO i say to CCP give us an answer.

Keep in mind that they were posting pre-incarna... they were forced into implementing ****** things (Incarna, Nex store) rather than cool things (fixed POS, new modules, new ships, rebalanced stuffs).

With Crucible, and the upcoming Inferno expansions ... it really looks like they're getting the right idea again (or at least understanding some of the mistakes they've made). So, perhaps they cannot poast because they'll give away the "big" thing for the expansion -- I mean, they already fixed fueling the damn things...

As much as i want you to be right, the odds are so heavy against this that its not funny. not anymore, not after all these years.

[/i]years[/i ]

While its true that CCP seems to be turning a new leaf in its customer relations departments. its also still true that some things that are bad and recognized continually to be bad. are still bad with no feedback by the people who can fix them.

even the engagement of a conversation in the hypothetical would be a welcomes and extremely useful discourse, so that players could learn about some of the issues blocking this and ccp could better understand what exactly are the problems that need to be addressed.

as to fuel blocks. im not really sure how its a fix. fuel supply is a longer chain now. its only the fuel dump to pos thats easier, everything before that is harder. oh and remember while they were "fixing" it ? lack of communication between CCP and players, (and it seems to a certain extent between CCP personnel) made the entire situation a lot worse then it should have been. considering all the ramp up to it.

Its not possible to please all the people all the time, but it sure as hell is possible to Displease all the people, most of the time.

Agreed, it's ccp we're talking about, and communication isn't exactly a strong suit of theirs ... however, with that said, they have been doing things well since crucible (or at least "well" compared to prior to that). It'll take time, but they're at least putting on the facade of trying.

also, forgot "soon(tm)" in my earlier post. Place where appropriate Smile

Why?

Why has this not been done, or at least something like this?

I remember this thread had been on the first page of the features and ideas on the old forums for months, or was it even years? And here it is again, back and with just as much support as before

CCP this idea is so blatantly supported by so many players, WHY have you not re-designed the POS system? What's your excuse?

Incarna? Please, I'd rather see WiS abandoned and removed than have resources taken away from improving the space part of our Space game.

New expansions? barf... what have you added? Faction warfare?, lame. Incursions?... ULTRA lame. For how much money you Icelandic trolls make off this game you need to start putting your time and effort into what the PLAYERS want.

Sometimes EVE makes me so mad I could quit, but I won't... for the sparse hope that one day, maybe just maybe, CCP will make EVE a good game.

While i understand please note that this idea has been around since 2008, and nearly ever conceivable idea has been brought up in that thread, but still there has been no definitive answer from the Devs. They keep trying to encourage more ideas, but no yes, no or we tried and can not do it.

Oh and as to fuel blocks they even got that wrong. They stated that you would be able to load a months worth of fuel in the pos. Well i am sorry but less than 30 days is not a month.

Plus we are not asking for a the Devs for an exact date on implementation (though after 4 years I think we should). We are asking for answer from them as to whether or not they are looking at this with a view to adding it to the game. Surely that is not alot to ask from these guys.

Hell they nerf modules left right and centre after one thread with 2 pages of post crying that they are overpowered, but a thread that has been going for 4 years is ignored.

This is the act of a company that says they listen to their customers.
