So we currently have shuttles to put around in and pick up school books for our various training.

I was thinking a T2 variation of the shuttle that loses most of it's 10m3 cargohold in exchange for some impressive technology.

5m3 Cargo Hold
1,000m3 DataVault restricted to Books, PLEX, data sheets (any data that can be compressed)

Interdiction Nullified

Extremely low signature
1 or 2 meters; preventing the ship from being caught from a decloak/undock-> warp but preventing it's use as a covert spy.

The ship would retain all the frailty and agility of the existing shuttle.


Now with 100% less Troll.

Because training for an interceptor is free right?

You self righteous 1% EVE players forget about the 99% of EVE players that don't even have Tactical Shield Manipulation trained to V.

Because the 20 days to interceptor is such a back breaker.

You whiney 'always want more freebies' 1% eve players forget about the 99% of eve players that quietly work for what they get.

People, people, if you keep feeding the troll, it keeps coming back. Like a puppy. A deranged puppy with mange and rabies that will gnaw it's own leg off to get to a week old fish head.

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

Love the idea, especially having this ship interdiction nullified; so there is finally a valid incentive for players to fly their Plex around nullsec in a Shuttle, an aspect of the game CCP had terribly neglected for years.
May I suggest that the Data Vault can also hold NeX clothes and monocles- I know, technically these are not data, but it might be a nice additional feature to make this ship even more popular.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

if troll, then a), if not then b)

a) -10/10, because lol

b) if serious, then let me introduce you to Malcanis' law, something that has been posted time and time again and then some. think it's the 7319707175th time I post about it.
and yes, your sugestion is, even if extremely bad applied, an example of malcanis' law.

Why not allow a capsuleer to squeeze a single PLEX between their cheeks and have it transport with them when they use the Jump Clone capability?

I trained it to IV, could easily master it.

Interceptors is a stupidly short train and even my PI alts have it becasue its so useful. If new players stopped obsessing over getting T3s and battleships and hulks and actually looked at what useful stuff you get with frigates V they would be far better off.

An interceptor does not take that long to train. My hauler alt has an Eres with pretty much all the tank, gunnery, and related skills maxed. Was just a side project that did not take long. If you are going to train one without guns just for hauling and being fast you could do it in a month or so.

If you really want to fast track it, just train for the T1 version with some navigation skills and speed / alignment mods in like a week.

T2 covert ops frigs do not take long to train either and are pretty usefull for this.

But basically I am gathering that you are looking for a ship like the Leopard that has a seeded unlimited run BPO.
