When anchored in orbit of a planet, it randomly generates sperm whales and bowls of petunias.

Slightly-more-likely-to-happen-post:

Mobile Mining Platform. Has a couple of regular mining lasers, an average cargo (say 1000-3000m3), and slightly reduced mining-range. Sucks roids based purely on shortest distance to the unit. Stops functioning/at reduced rate while location has hostile NPCs. Inventory is free-for-all.

(Local Disruption Unit should still be a thing)

Mobile Cloak Disruptor:

Operates in a similar radius to the Cyno Jammer. Cycles every 10 seconds, - RP stuff - "Emits a pulse of energy which charges the shields of nearby ships with a negative charge. This static charge can be identified by ship-based targetting sensors, regardless of cloaking devices. Prevents the use of a cloak for 10 seconds." The Cloak Disruptor requires 30 seconds to anchor, 1 minute to unanchor and should probably be small enough that most ships can comfortably carry one. The MCD can operate for 1 hour before exhausting its energy stores.

Also, a POS mod equivalent which can operate indefinitely.

key notes - Since the MCD operates on a 10 second cycle, a covert cloaked ship coming out of warp at a target may remain cloaked until the next cycle hits. So, with the new warp mechanics, you essentially have a 90% chance to land on your target while still cloaked and engage on your terms. Also, for stealth bombers targetting large fleets, this will change very little, provided the squad of bombers are excellent. If the SBs are bad, they'll be decloaked and easily dispatched.

Mobile detector array.
sends a notification to the owner when a ship enters the grid: includes shiptype and playername and current solar system+ owner defined name of the unit)
(maybe max distance to owner (12 LY)
cooldown (only 1 notification per 20 min)
Special ability: Last Words: send ingame linked killmail of it self if it gets destroyed.
20k-40k ehp to avoid kill through ceptors
not cheap
150km detector range
at least 20km distance to the next detector array

Mobile warp gates

Allow anchoring in both low and null sec - allowing pirates and sov groups to create their own 'deadspace' areas, where other structures could potentially be anchored (such as mobile depots, cyno jammers, mobile research facilities).

These areas could also be defended with deployable weapon platforms.


This is the best idea in the thread so far. Player owned deadspace complexes that can be defended by deployable structures.

Love it.

Hey everyone. As most of you know, we are introducing the first four of our new Mobile Structures in the upcoming Rubicon expansion: the Mobile Depot, Mobile Tractor Unit, Mobile Cynosural Inhibitor, and Mobile Siphon Unit. These four structures open up a lot of amazing possibilities for EVE players, but they're intended to be just the start.

This summer we asked the CSM to help us brainstorm ideas for potential mobile structures in Rubicon and beyond. We've also been brainstorming internally and finding good ideas posted in this forum. We've already decided which new mobile structures we will be adding in Rubicon 1.1, but we'd like to open up the brainstorming to all of you to help come up with great ideas for the future expansions!

Forgive me CCP Fozzie for maybe being blind but up to date I have not seen stats for the new structures. I you would publish them that would give us boudries to make new proposals. Again sorry if they float around somewhere and I've missed it...


They are all up and seeded on Sisi right now, and there's quite a bit of discussion of their stats in the Test Server forums. There's also a dev blog coming very soon that discusses some of the stats.


Please increase the "cant anchor within X of a stargate or station" to more like 1 AU.

Also I would like to see
1) A structure that steals a portion of all ratting bounties in the system, stores it inside until retrieved (either by the owner, or hacked by someone else)
2) Module repper - anchor, feed nanite, rep full burned out modules, drones, etc
3) NPC bait - deploy it and it takes highest priority npc aggro

But i want to anchor jammers on station grid.

Can you please address all of these stupid mobile decloakers in the OP post so people stop flooding the thread with this idiocy.

Made me laugh alot. With the wormhole stabilizing Idea I dont think supers should be allowed to enter wormholes. There have been alot of complaints in the past about wh space not having any conflict drivers and how being aggressive in wh space is too hard, I don't think wh space should stay like it is today forever.


Wormholes need more content and more valuable resources (ice and minable moons for instance). That would drive conflict without turning wormholes into just more null, which is what you seem to want.

Unit with random effect. Can spawn an officer spawn, can destroy your ship, can call concord in enfuriated with you, can drop a random loot, can open a wormhole to random location, can cloak your ship for 30 minutes. Can jam your ship for 30 minutes, can revert the strings of everythign in the overview for 1 hours.. etc...

hmm, Anchorable pedo-van shaped structure that plays the ice cream truck song and lures new players to dock with it so they can be.....thoroughly indoctrinated on the ways of EVE line?

Yes please.

A structure that cause the same phenomena found in dead space pockets... something that keeps people from warping to your location, within 250km.

you can warp away from it, just not to anything around it.


This + acceleration gates. Make so you can lock the gates based on standings or unless the user has something in their cargohold - like a janitor.

Make it so that another player can scan down the dead space pocket and launch their own acceleration gate to enter.

Obviously you'll need to ensure links fail to work - or, even better, only effect those within the confines of the dead space.

(serious idea ITP)

CONCORD signal jammer. 3-5 minute anchoring time. When anchored, CONCORD doesn't respond to criminally flagged players within range. (But they are still free game for other players.) Can't be anchored on grid with stations or gates.

Gank AFK bot-aspirant miners with great justice. Anyone watching the game has plenty of time to get out of range. (POS managers have to check on their POSes every hour now, it's only fair that miners should have to check their screens once in a while too.)

Also allows for friendly fleet vs fleet or FFA combat within highsec without having to abuse stealing mechanics or having to start fifty duels.

Mobile Sentry guns. You drop them in a belt and if an enemy or pirate appears, they shoot him. They should have a range equal to that of a siphon, and when attacked they go into reinforcement mode for 48 hours.


These guns should protect the asteroids they're defending from those who seek to harm them: the miners.

They should therefor only attack mining barges, exhumers and anything with mining lasers fitted. I completely agree!
