weapon that uses cap only from fleeted+targeted, cumulative power, must select target on activation - no highsec - offlines weapon after firing regardless.

a la species 8472.

hi.

why cant we ship a clone for clone jumping from station to station
contract an industrial to carry the cryo tube from hek to illuin or amarr to rens...rens to jita
cost to set the clone up in the station. piracy being peoples pods can be turned into concord for a reward on the isk bounties.

why aren't trees and sand a harvest-able pi resource

pod piracy. big ships which gobble up smaller ships, force them to make a jump clone on the ship, then hold the clone and the ship hostage on the ship.

tractor beam surfing, dragging. bigger mass ship which is moving and tractors a target should drag them and reduce inertia, in essence making the smaller one surf or drag the mass.... inertia vs acceleration. immovable object vs the unstoppable force. multiple tractors amplify this affect

every dog tag should have a turn in; symmetry after all, even if its zazzamatazz's dogtag

random merchants which collect dog tags and other assorted stuff, wandering from system to system. starting in different systems each morning at dt.
merchants have guards, since they show up outside the boundaries of concord, usually in asteroid belts, or nearby.
maybe 10 minutes of travel away from a belt to find them.

claymore functioning projectiles. missiles type between (rocket/ham/torp)/cruise/light/heavy) which expel shrapnel in the direction of the signature. 90-degree peppering. chance to damage engines (if expelled towards the rear of the targeted moving object.






I can do this all day.

big rorquals which just slowly intake full roids in bay and crush them. mobile processing station platform to save money on mining.

or it just tractor beams the roids in and consumes them.

When you consume any type of drug you see gnomes, flying exotic dancers and all kinds of psychodelic things.

When you die, you have a small chance to change your gender due a clone defect.

New ewar highslot module to overheat a random active module on the targetted ship and if it is already overheated burn it out faster.

Implement a browser-based game client where a pilot can remotely fly a single light drone around the local system from their CQ so I can surreptitiously play EVE while at work.

Sure that could work if you want to allow it to use gates and such which would be kinda useful. I was originally thinking just being in Rens in my CQ and flying a warrior II drone around the system shooting stuff at random (or a salvage drone to grab the wrecks of the constant duels).

I thought this was the "one-line bad idea thread", while everyone is posting what they want ^_^ Anyway, here is my one line bad idea:

forcing everyone to pvp

let corps be created under NPC corp umbrella (or NPC alliance), set tax to a minimum of 10% (which NPC alliance keeps). This way players can be in a corp even while in an NPC corp, they still pay the same taxes, but can at least have friends and some organisation. This game is made around to benefit pvp'ers, and crushing pve'ers. Let PvE player be free of war decs if they want to socialise in a NPC corp.

PoCo's are great for settled eveplayers who already have a stand in the game, but later possible tax-bashing will steal another income well for newbies, making it even harder to get in
