Honestly, this is an awesome idea.

This demonstrates what is both right and wrong with hacking sites, copyright, crowd sourcing, and the EVE code base all at once. Beautiful.

How about a weapon system that you can't use for 40 seconds while you switch up your ammo.

When ever you exit or enter warp you maintain your velocity, and in order to slow down or speed after exiting you must do a QuickTime event otherwise you crash into the local planet, moon or station.

New idea for T3 BC/BS: Spinal mount - weapon ships.

BCs get one, T3-battleships get two spinal mounted weapons with incredible damage output, but with a slow cycle. Every race would get an aprobiate weapon: Amarr gets huge ****-off tachyon-lasers, Gallente get a gigantic neutron-blaster, Caldari a rather large railgun and the Minmatar get the largest autocannon ever.

Those highly specialised weapons would do roughly twice the damage of a normal XL-sized weapon, with the twice the loading times and weapon cycles.

To make room for those giant-ass weapons the T3-battleships would have roughly the EHP of a T2 BC and the T3 BC roughly the EHP of a T2 cruiser. Also no spinal ship would have more then 4 HighSlots for the BS and 3 HighSlots for the BC and also at least -1 Med- / LowSlot across the board.

The glassiest of glass cannons!

Implement change to good and useful missile module so you can always very fast almsot kil la target then you cannot fire anymore until you are dead!

When using an oversized weapon system (such as XL turrets on a BS), you ship gets hull damage as either the recoil almost stops it on its tracks (or even make it go backwards!), great heat, and/or the inmense capacitor requirements suck so much energy that not only it empties the cap on a few shots but then starts vampiring energy from surrounding vessels!
Oh, and if they're missiles, armor gets thermal damage from the enormous rocket exhausts.

To do combat missions you need to sign up for FW.

The Vargur requires launcher hardpoints, following tempest tradition.
