Shields can be discharged instatntly to produce a smartbomb effect. Logistics repairing a ship that has just completed this requires double cap to activate its RR mods.

A pop up window that requires closing everytime you cycle an offensive weapon.

Also turn auto repeat off, sick of all those seconds of non-interactive gameplay.

Also, a GM authorised response to undocking. A short essay outlining why you want to undock (for ease this should be 500 words or less). If GM agress you get to undock. Expansion name....Eve Bureaucracy.

Allow AB's to stack.

The Vargur requires launcher hardpoints, following tempest tradition.

Freighters with a module that compresses their mass so they fit inside wormholes.

Smartbombs destroy camera drones of enemy ships leaving them with blank screens (or a watery view of their Pod's interior) until replacement drones are launched.

Doomsday Device on Rorquals.

(i dunno if it's the forums or my lousy deep south usa internet connection... but eveyr post first kicks me back to the "write your post" window)

instead of a doomsday device, a doomsday-esque mining laser that is rorqual only. while it's fit you can't use scanners on asteroids. 10 minute cycle time unaffected by command links/boosts. can't interrupt the cycle (ie- if you warp off before it completes, you get nothing). at the end of the cycle, instead of a flat amount of roids, you completely deplete the rock and get it all.

Auto-Loader 1400mm Howitzer Artillery II, balanced around a 5 shell magazine, a full rack fits easily on a Tornado.

Give Dust players an area of effect Doomsday structure that can fire into space and get them close to Jita.

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!

all characters get Cybernetics V at startup and all characters currently with a lower level of the skill, or even without the skill, get lvl 5 of it as well.
