I am proposing that for all space stations with ship repair services a new category is added: to clean your dirty old ships. It is illogical to place this in the fitting screen as you could clean your ship in space by simply launching a depot.

Read the blog first, maybe? There will be option to clean ship.

We take pride in maintaining sterile, well functioning, and operationally capable vessels. Dirt may appear appropriate on other filthy Minmatar craft but it's not for everybody.

We still respect the idea that many people will want dirty ships; it's a great idea! Some love the aesthetic appeal of sut!


As long as you are willing to pay ISK for it, I see no problem with that.

A voluntary ISK sink if you will...

I'll be fine with that, so long as the ISK comes out of your wallet. I'm not paying for a feature I've previously enjoyed for free - that my ships should be clean and crisp and as beautiful as the art team originally brought them into the game.

To make things simple there ought to be a simple opt-out. A setting in the options menu to simply turn it on or off. Because having to clean a half-dozen ships every time I visit a new cache would get tedious fast.

Exactly. It will benefit CCP, and be a logical service feature.

Nope. You want it clean, you get it cleaned.

Sorry for dropping by but I witnessed the eye-pron that is damaged ships with armor damage and then nanites slowly repairing the damage.

Everyone go in SiSi undock in anything and do a mission or into a belt and let your boat get armor damage and dock back up. You really want to see this!

Eve Minions is recruiting.

This is the law of ship progression!

I like the volountary isk sink!

For posting an idea into F&I: come up with idea, try and think how people could abuse this, try to fix your idea - loop the process until you can't see how it could be abused, then post to the forums to let us figure out how to abuse it..... If your idea can be abused, it [u]WILL[/u] be.
