As a wormhole dweller, i would love to see something done about the POS's. Currently they are horrific: Use of inventory (hangars), fitting services, ship maintenance bays, shooting at them, anchoring, doing the setup, fuel status and overall managing... I would like to get the feeling that the POS is my home, and make it less complex {currently the grid is full of sentrys and stuff}.

My opinion about how POS can be made to feel more like home: Let there be docking bay. Let us walk in our POS. Let there be love with the lonely towers lost in the unknown space of wormhole!

I disagree!

I use POSes on daily basis and improvements are definitely in order. I would appreciate clear commitment from CCP to fix the issues preferably sooner than later.

There may be a small number of people who manage POS's but without them we don't have moon goo and T2 production.

How many pilots will be affected by a revamp... all that want T2... so everyone from miners to pvper's from highsec to the lowest null sov.

The argument that changing the POS system would only affect a small group of players is ridiculous.

At Fanfest they said they wanted to make the POS modular, be something everyone could have, etc.

I agree there are not a lot of people with POSs right now, but if you change them, that number could grow by leaps and bounds. Just the other day I was speaking to a new player and told him the POS is changing and it won't be long before he might be able to have his own. He was overjoyed at the idea. I guess I'll go tell him the bad news.

I use a POS, it's pretty much the only thing I use. It is a POS in all sense of the acronym, please please work on it!

My alliance has a suicide watch style support network for people who manage the 500+ POS/infrastructure my alliance needs.

Stew on that for awhile.

It's true, I was once removed from Logistics because I was "too invested in my work," and that people were "highly concerned." But then they realized I was doing the job of 10 people, and quickly got me the help I needed.

We also support multiboxing deployment of towers using supers.

As one of said people, I have had to use my Nyxen in the past to keep up with alliance demands. I shudder to think what they'll make me do if/when I get an Erebus.

This isn't the case. CCP has two basically separate decisions to make:
1) To fix the current POS system or not
2) To start work on a new POS system

Now it might be the case that they decide to fix the current system for this summer and start a new POS system after that, or they might decide to start on the new system at the same time they are fixing the current one.

Again, I'd like to remind folks that are actually reading this thread to keep things civil and constructive. Going all nutso will only hurt the chances of getting CCP to work on POSes.


Well... Why to do twice a job, if you can only do it once? Only fix a part of the code if it is to stick to the final product... else the job will not bepart of the value aggregation of the feature...

And my Giga Super capital Doomsday Gatling Antimatter Cannon.

now I completely agree pos need a total rework, I have setup 3 or 4 poses and it has been quite a pain always to manage and set them, not to mention, they were corp owned, not Player owned which mean I had to take them down each time I switch corp or alike.

I have never felt more enthusiastic about any upcoming new feature/fix in EVE online than the POS revamp.

Hearing that CCP doesn't feel like it's a priority at all made me legitimately angry, and made all the past explanations about it being difficult to implement etc. feel like excuses.

It's an important game mechanic and should be treated as such.

Please, revamp the POSes.

i posted somewhere, it would be nice that ccp would do something fitting for pos (like ship one).

As someone in charge of a large majority of POS in large chunk of space (5 regions) I'm asking that you please make them less terrible.

Even if that is only making on-lining mods queue or something so I don't have to stare at my screen for over an hour and click a button every two minutes.

When I ask people to go and put a staging tower up, a part of me dies.

There is an armageddon in jita shooting the memorial at jita, the ship name is "FIX MY POS!". I fully support this noble angry capsuleer. Pos upgrades have been talked about for too long.

From page 19:

"Unifex: Once we have a theme, we can begin to thread the issues you've identified as needing to be prioritized into that theme. POS's, for example, desperately need some improvement. How do we fit that work into our theme? Maybe we don't do all of the modular POS work at once, but we start by making some modules, solving the hangar problem, for instance. But that new hangar module would also exist to support other new activities as part of the themed expansion. "
