Free Ladar sites

As simple at it is.
I don't see reason why ladar sites cannot spawn in all nullsec space.
My suggestion :
- random ladar sites can spawn in all nullsec , but in NPC space chance is 3 times bigger.

Is it? Would you mind providing a source for this information please.

Um why? it would just devalue them. And why buff npc 0.0 ffs? Like stain needs more added to it ... I guess you would want the other cosmos sites as well?

Ok then no buff tho npc regions - all regions have the same chane.
But i simply don't see reason why the ladar sites are limited to specific regions - and yes im thinking about drug manufacturing so im interested in gas clouds:

Like you see only few regions have the ability to spawn a Ladar site.

What you linked states clearly that it formed as an unfinished work in progress, from the explorer communities reports. It even says there could be big holes in the information.

I dare say that certain regions have different types of ladar sites spawn, but I seriously doubt that entire regions are devoid of ladar sites.

My corp is 6 months in stain - no ladar site, no one found one.
My Alliance - i spoken with a guy that probes for years - he never found a ladar site in Stain or heard that someone did.

Then I suggest you go for gas in lowsec, because according to your magical mystery gas mining guide, Ladar sites are all over the place there.

For me :
High < Low < Null
So why move to low?

I don't understand your proposal....

Moongoo isn't evenly distributed across all regions...
Sec Status isn't evenly distributed across all regions...
Each Region has specific NPC rats, and only drones can be found everywhere (although they have a specific drone region too).
Many nullsec regions have Ladar sites as it is....

Resources don't need to be ubiquitously distributed... it's what helps create nitch regions... So, what is the problem? Do you live in a region without Ladar sites? If so.... move to a region that has them...

Can't be asked because of Sov? The scan down a WH and mine the Ladar Sites there!!!

In short.... you have options, and haven't provided a reason for altering the distribution of Ladar Sites.

Can you please provide an example of what is broken and what you are trying to fix? Or how it would be beneficial to the game while keeping in mind the rest of the universe...

At last, something we agree on.

All WH gas is totally different to all other gas. It is exclusively used to make T3 ships and the clouds generate no damage.

What i propose is gas nebulas needed for the production of the drugs.
Not connected with rats etc etc.

i agree with the OP LADAR (gass cloud) sites should spawn all over EVE in high/low/unll systems alike.
just limit the DRUG-specific clouds to faction boundries.

the current state of BOOSTER manufacturing materials distrabution

aridia (amarr-Blood) MINDFOLD
derelic (amarr-sansha) FRENTIX
the forge (caldari-guristas) BLUE PILL
hemitar (minmatar-angel) X-INSTINCT
lonetreck (caldari-guristas) CRASH
molden heath (minmatar-angel) SOOTH SAYER
placid (gallente-serpentis) DROP
solitude (gallente-serpentis) EXILE

NULL SEC (contains COSMOS const
catch (sansha) FRENTIX
cloud ring (serpentis) DROP
delve (blood) MINDFOLD
feythabolis (anegel) X-INSTINCT
Fountain (serpentis) EXILE
tenal (guristas) CRASH
vale of the silent (guristas) BLUE PILL
Wicked creek (angel) SOOTH SAYER

only 16 out of the 66 K-Space regions have a chance to spawn LADAR sites

-component systems= 78
-constelations= 11
-LADAR constelations= 1
total Ladar High chance Systems in region= 6

i have used aridia as this is where i have done 90% of my LADAR related work
over a period of about 6 months in 2011, I scanned and cleared all LADAR sites i found in the constelation
in total i ran about:
25-30 LADAR-combat sites
50+ gass harvesting sites
100s assorted Misc sites

in al that time o had maby one of 2 ladar gas-clouds spawn in the region outside the FABI constelation
