Mobile Cynosural Unit - Creates a Cyno. Everyone can jump to it.

I think certain low sec and pirates stations should do this already. For a fee.

Caps are too reliant on alts atm which seems like a cynical ploy from CCP.

If this was allowed more caps would die. Its thier inability to move about solo that actually keep more from dying.

Mobile Agent Interface - Purchaseable from LP-Store. Tied to the faction which sells it to you. Gives you access to an Agent from the 'main corp' of that faction. Meta 1 Level 1, Meta 2 Level 2 and so on. Combat orientated corps sell you a Security Interface, Mining Corps a Mining Interface and so on. Provides Bonus LP if used out of Highsec (25% for Lowsec, 50% for Nullsec).
Pirate Factions sell them too - Meta 1 deployable in Highsec, Meta 2 and 3 and 4 in Lowsec. LP-Penalties if used in High/Low (-50%/-25%).

If you don't notice someone setting up a 10-minute anchor of a fragile Concord Disruptor and not warp out, well, not sure what to say really. (PS: The whole point of this thing as I'm thinking is that the consequences are still inevitable, but delayed.)

Hmmm, I suppose it SHOULD probably only have limited battery life too. Probably in the span of minutes.

My original idea changes the consequences from being beaten to a pulp by an invincible NPC entity to being shot at by other people. I specifically said "CONCORD won't react to criminal timers", not "people won't get criminal timers". So if you go GCC near one of these things, you have to sit it out for 15 minutes. If you warp out, you still get CONCORDOKKEN on landing. But 15 minutes is plenty for your victim to reship into a combat ship and take revenge.


Ah, this I like.

Asteroid Scanning Array:

Spawns a better quality asteroid field/ice belt (small one)/gas cloud. Bookmark dropped in the array's cargo.

Skill limited for how many you can anchor globally.

Cool down after scan.

Once warped to, the signature can be scanned down by anyone. Must be mined out before the array resets.

Possibly add, in empire space, some kind of claim system for these. So the discoverer can stake their claim. Anyone that mines from it after that goes suspect.

Woo! CSM XI!

Mobile Depot had a ton of small gang groups super excited to use them to deploy behind enemy lines as we could have a base we could all use without anchoring a POS that would notify the SOV holders we were there. That excitement was lost when the "Only the person who deploys it can use it" rule was made public. So I want a Mobile Depot that is password protected so small elite groups can have a base of operation when we deploy behind enemy lines.

Checkpoints for races, and may be some other things! A little structure that can show what person on what ship has flown by it. A log shows fly by speed and time.
One single person could make a chain of those checkpoints to make a race track.

Eh, wouldn't some kind of general public-use mobile depot as a T2 variant be better? (I really like the idea of all of these anchorables being subverted, if you hadn't have guessed.)

Mobile Wormhole Generator.

Needs to be fueled with some Isotopes or so. Upon activation, puts the user into a random wormhole. No real wormhole connection is established (No K-162). The Generator gets destroyed in the process.

How about some point defense turrets? a small one to deal with close range frigates maybe (wouldn't be as effective as drones of course), and a medium one to deal with close range cruisers. A large one would probably be power creep but i think it would be a cool idea in general.

Eat Lead!!! Err....Antimatter...whatever!

Mobile Forcefield - Basically like a POS. But you can't anchor stuff to it, it's radius is very small, and it has no Reinforce. Also, very very low HP (like, 500k or so).

I just checked with CCP Masterplan and it turns out this would be a fairly simple modification to the auto-tractor.

Hmmmm......

Just make gate guns do it...

X minutes after ship pops the gate guns pop the wrecks...

How about a decoy that makes you appear in Local even if you have left the system a long time ago? *eg*
MAYBE this thing could be found on D-Scan, so someone in the system might be able to tell that you COULD not be present... but then again: if you actually WERE in the system, he could not tell.

market module i can attach to the depot. It can list a few contracts with sell/buy orders.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

I like it.

The claim system sort of discourages "content creation", read: player conflict.

Id rather have it the opposite way, or no suspect flag, and if someone else finds it they can steal the bookmark.

I was thinking the suspect flag would encourage conflict. To allow people to shoot each other over claim jumping?

Though I guess that requires people to shoot first.

sonar - like radar which emitts an impulse every 20s and shows you the location of every cloaked ship in the vicinity (50k or so). The location of the ship is only shown to the owner of the mod. (e.g ships appear decloaked for a few s)

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

A lot of stupidly overpowered stuff in here.

One thing I would recommend is a mobile boost jammer - While deployed in a system, it would nullify all off grid boosting. This would have to be in system for 24 hrs before it took effect, and would have to be gone for 24 hours before the effects went away. I'm looking at this as a lowsec boost.

A lot of wormhole effects could be mimicked this way too. At most it's a way to even a battlefield, not give one side a surprise advantage.

I'm not so sure. We have station names visible to all of EVE already. I guess that people that we let touch sov buttons are more than 12 years old.
