Look what i found on my alt qwerty5057 in Isanamo.

Why is that there? Some kind of lore mission, or a glitch in the servers? An unexplained April fools joke? Can we blow it up or dock at it? So many questions....

I dont know if this is important or not, but i have chickens.....

Blow it up? You haven't tried already? Furthermore, did you offer your advice at the time the design was being developed?
It could just be a matter of they're not as smart as you. Simple as that. Big smile

Well, the actual reason is very complex, and involves a lot of hard game balance decisions, carefully weighed to insure that no one group gained to much benefit.

But to boil it down to a tl;dr: Because that's where CCP decided to put it.

Stop trying to find hidden meaning in everything. Sometimes a turd on a rock that looks like your cousin Larry is just an oddly shaped piece of ****, not a sign from the universe.

I think I once read a forum post that suggested the answer is in the EVE books.

Why is the rum gone?

Looks like lore might have the answer. Roleplayers like Jandrice
might now where to spot that one. (don't create an outofcharacter thread in IGS).

Built on Galatic Laylines and the gates just kinda linked them up?

Hint: Its not a real station, you can tell this due to the lack of station entry on either the structure or your overview.

The guy who built it didn't have Anchoring to 5. The damn thing's been drifting around for years.

Why not?

There's also one in Ishomilken, right near the gate leading to high sec.

Don't see the issue. Infact, if anything, it makes sense to put the gate near stations.

That's a great idea!!! Move them to random spots at DT every day and make them not show up in the right click menu or overview. I agree with you!!!

By the way. What's a "glitch in the server"?

Paradise is like where you are right now, only much, much better.
