Alliance ultra capital idea

Ok here is my idea, a modular capital ship dependent on how many are docked to it with this capital specific ships. The ship owner does the navigation and each person in there special ship can do one of several things. It would be similar to like a mobile pos with modular ships for pretty much anything an alliance would need. This would really open up fleet engagements to absolutely everyone in the alliance to fleet combat.

modular ship types:
Cloak :
this one would require that several of these ships be docked in order to cloak. say 20 to 50 and all have the same module

Attack:
small medium large and xlarge weapons to give more people the chance in fleet

Defense:
structure armor and shield repers and resistance added to the whole

Electronic warfare:
again added to the whole ship.

Drone bay ships:
drones fighters and the like

Corporation ships:
docks jump clone bays ect

Industry ships:
Mining and the like no building or research though i think that would take away too much from the pos.

Currently it is technically impossible for players to "dock" with other players (hence the workarounds with the Jump Bridge Portal for Titans).

If or when the DEVs can make this possible though I could see them not making a new ship but repurposing Titans (and maybe carriers and supercarriers) to carry people around.

And I can definitely not see players wanting other "mouth breathers" controlling aspects of their own ships. Better to have people in their own ship as an extra "meat shield" on the field.

Any mechanic that gives c&c from the fleet pilot to one 'trigger' pilot gets a resounding NO vote from me. Just look at the unintended consequences around drone assist doctrines. Remove piloting from the equasion as well and you just make it easier for the 40 character multi box players to fly a solo fleet.

Goons assemble!

Form Goontron!

*bad 80's era Japanese music plays*

*cue 35 second long pre-recorded Goontron assembly montage*

*all pilots yell* GO GOONTRON!

*pull back to show Goontron in awesome fighting pose with shiny raygun exposions in background*

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Why does this bring to my mind the image of an 80 foot tall mechanized technicolor phallus?

Tell me again about how every playstyle you dont engage in "doesn't require any effort" and everyone who does it needs to die in a fire. Be sure to mention about how you tried it once but it was too easy/boring/ethnic-homophobic slur.

well i would like that spaceunicorn. although just because it would be a funny asset on each battlefield but don´t like that idea in eve.

if you are looking for capitals with more than one person on board, there are other space sims ;)

Can it use an orbital friendship cannon to make all the Dust players on a planet stop shooting each other for a few minutes and play hopscotch together?
