Dev Blog: Player Owned Customs offices in Hi-Sec

Good afternoon Capsuleers! Big smile

There are many things in which you can put your stuff. Some of these things are owned by players, and some are owned by CONCORD.

One of these many things are Customs Offices. In the past, those located in highsec have been NPC owned. However, with EVE Online: Rubicon this will be changing.

To explain the changes in more detail, CCP SoniClover is here with a new Dev Blog!

Enjoy!

FIRST!

(ok, "technicly" first) :P

It seems as income of many small guys in HS just got much lower/harder to get.

We've been talking about this feature since we initially introduced the player owned POCOs. I'm so happy it's finally going out. Enjoy guys <3

Interesting, so how much does a war against Goonswarm cost now again?

Are nullsec POCOs affected by the wardec ownership transfer lockout?

I hope this works in game like the devs have planned in there heads.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

Right now, yes. You can transfer between corporations in the same Alliance, but I have expressed to SoniClover the instances of system handovers or alliance-to-alliance transfers.

The only flaw I see to this wonderful idea is the fact that wardec costs (goons.. oops :D Oops) and range (being attacked at the other side of high sec when you wardecced only for a POCO) are not matching this new mechanic.

Edit : will we see suicide-ganking of POCOS ? :D

CCP just introduced a reason to go to war in Highsec

a weak one though, but it's a start :)

Right now there are no extra rules in, so the transfer would affect all POCOs. We have discussed putting in extra rules based on security bands or timers, but haven't decided if to implement any of them.

there is one thing that bothers me:

if the poco can't be transfered during war, that kinda means i can't have
a war-loser transfer his poco (or all his pocos) to me as a reparation payment.
(otherwise i have to drop war first which kinda would allow him to sell 'em to someone else take 'em down or whatever)

so if you really implement this limitation it would be nice if there was at least a "transfer to war oponnent" button or something like that.

Does attacking Interbus owned custom office give suspect flag(doing so in low sec gives one if im not mistaken) ?

That wouldn't really work. A POCO owner could then have an alt corp be at war with the corp that owns the POCO and then transfer it to the alt corp when the POCO comes under threat.

I totally agree with this.

This was my only question, I love more reasons to go to war.

Hmm yes I can see that problem. Maybe if all wartargets had to agree on the transfer? But that would require a lot more code.

So... You're keeping the NPC tax rates on the pocos, even if they're owned by a player?

There doesn't seem to be any incentive to do PI in highsec then since you can probably just find a nice C1, have no tax, and actually just mine the resources yourself.

If you want to remove NPC pocos, remove the NPC tax on pocos as well.

Please also remove the SOV requirement in nullsec to place command centers. This would allow us to open it up based on standings and share planets with people. We can lockout hostiles with 100% tax rates if so desired.
