We need deployable player-owned billboards, aka Playboards.

Because I want her image on-grid with me at all times.


Also encourages PVP, as I would defend it with my life against jealous rivals.


Give a friendly +1 to make space more glamorous!

You could start with something that's a slightly lower resolution..

I literally laughed/blushed so hard IRL when I saw this, even showed my friend who's here with me (much to his confusion).

You have made my night, sir. After being left bitterly disappointed earlier I am now smiling once again.

Dunno what else to say other than <3

+1 for this suggestion too, by the way. Smile

CCP have an internal metric for things like this. It's called "time until penis". I'll give you 3 guesses what it means :P

EDIT: stupid CCP... penis is a clinical word for a part of the male anatomy, not a curse word or anything like that.

Lol, I see what you mean, but the EULA is already clear so upload inappropriate material --> someone reports it --> logs clearly point their finger at you --> enjoy your ban.

Though I personally see no reason to put anything other than giant Erica Dusette fashion pics on a space-billboard, the possibilites for fun and interesting player-made content are endless.

Actually, we just need the ability to post in game adverts on the billboards already in the game. Advertise your corp or other in game functions at for a fixed rate of ISK

Ok, for some serious questions. CONCORD billboards do about 19dps to anyone with a criminal flag. Would these do the same?

What about CODE. pilots who want to display an inspiring picture of loyalanon? Seems kind of unfair if their own billboards start shooting at 'friendlies'.

Would there be a 'billboard bandwidth' skill (18x of course) that would increase the number of deployed billboards on grid?

Could you accidentally warp away from your billboard? Does your billboard have a warp capability so it can follow you and position itself at 10 o'clock or 2 o'clock so you can happily stare at it from the corner of your eye while shooting someone?

Should there be a 'billboard interfacing' skill that would let you put more pictures into one?

If you chose to photoshop in corporate logos, like Erica drinking a photoshopped Quafe, can you earn royalties (say 0.05 ISK) for every second the billboard is on display? Royalties should probably go up with more pilots on grid.

These are important questions, Alex. If CCP is on the verge of implementing this, which I do believe they would be after reading this thread, I think they need your guidance for the exact capabilities of this new exciting expansion-busting addition.

Yep. If you are in lowsec and shooting at people at gates, be sure to blow up the billboard beforehand to rid yourself of the extra annoyance Blink

Billboards will respawn at downtime. I got this all from an ISD who spoke in weird slime colored text.

More space garbage is fail.

Yawn,  I'm right as usual. The predictability kinda gets boring really.

I think have good point, sir.

I think you should lead from example take trip to station for biomass self, Mista Selkurk.

Make for many success in space instead not failings.

Ahem ... Straight

A picture of me in a little black dress is hardly p*rn, sir.

However if you are finding it similarly arousing then I thank you for such compliment. Oops

Thanks for asking, Sibyyl! Fozzie called last night, we were both slightly wasted, this is what we came up with.

Playboards would interact with capsuleers based on the displayed image.


Erica in a LBD would obviously work as an Armored Warfare Link - Passive Defense. In other words, a rock-hard hardener. Blink

If you needed DPS, Kellie with a cyber leg* would come in handy.

Schmata was spot on about logi effects, I hope we can get a Dusette nurse pic soon.


The royalty mechanic will be included.


If two or more Playboards are deployed on the same grid, they start fighting eachother. The sexiest wins, so be sure to exploit the hell out of the OP'd Dusette playboards before Rise nerfs them.


*Erica, please forgive my terrible graphic skills :)
