Interesting risk dynamic with low-sec. I guess it all depends on how much damage they can take, on if it'll be worth setting one up.

Customs Offices in High Sec will remain under the authority of CONCORD who will, in turn, charge doubled import and export taxes

As if POS Fuel wasn't expensive enough ... and now we just need a good old speculation on ice prices ... oh wait, there is already goon

Loving the sound of these changes. PI really needed something to kick it up the ass and this is perfect.

This is good. We need more things like this.

All things outside of high sec controlled by capsuleers and at risk.

I was hoping to read about one feature: Make these custom offices be available for courier-contracts! But was highly disappointed...

And second: Do I read this right, these things are pretty much defenseless (apart from their 24 hour timer)? No guns, no... nothing? Sounds like perfect 'shoot here for practise' signs Ugh

(edit: might be though that I didn't catch the actual intention of this iteration)

Well, they oughta know what to do with them hogs out there for shure.

This was desperately needed with the coming of DUST514.
Anything to make PI actually worth fighting over.
I can't bring myself to play SpaceFarmVille again, but this is great stuff Lol

... and one more thing: The end of magically appearing structures in Anoikis. How we ever managed to cram so many stinking colonists into those small crates I could never understand.

How will it work in null-sec ? Are the planets still reserved to the alliance that holds sov ?

Iterating on existing content - and expanding it to be more player-controlled? I've must been dropped into an alternative universe Lol

Also, in before the tears this will cause Pirate
