An update to Courier Contracts - UPS not Uhaul


(Acac Sunflyier) #1

I love Red Frog; one of my favorite aspects of the game. They are the Uhaul of this game. But, I’d like to see couriers become some what more UPS than Uhaul.

I do however wish there was the ability to have Courier Contracts deliver to somebody else. Imagine this. You have a widget that you want moved to XYZ system from ABC. But, once it’s there, you know you’re going to have to create a second contract to have it given to another person. I would like to see couriers allow for us to have the option to deliver to another. That way, when RF completes the contract, it automatically ends up in another person’s hangar.

That’s my idea. What do you think?

So in a nutshell you want to automatically transfer ownership of the items that have just been hauled to another person, yeah?

Looks like an ok idea, quality of life for people that want to be on point and on time with things I suppose.

In a nutshell I think this would be interesting. It would save me a step shipping stuff between my market alt and my mains in null.

That said, it’s only a mild convenience improvement for me (personally) so I’d only support it if it were very simple for the devs to implement.

Would it not be simpler to change the market limitation from regional to global. There were hints in the CSM minutes they are already looking at that.
And EVE market already tends to cut out most price differentials except where it’s actually more expensive to make or get a product because of shipping

Not really, because while you can still have access to the goods, getting them delivered is what the OP is about.

It’s like Amazon. You don’t drive to their warehouse to pick stuff up, they ship it to you and it arrives wherever you tell them to send it.

What you’re talking about is just combining amazon.ca and amazon.com (there is some overlap but not full overlap).

Seems like a good idea.

Simple quality of life feature. I see no issue with it.

I approve this idea with the official seal of consumer approval.


(Lugh Crow-Slave) #9

Can’t see a downside ofc there should also be an option to deliver to a corp or an individual


(Lukett MyDabb) #10

what if Wingspan became an ACTUAL delivery service f this was added?


(Lugh Crow-Slave) #11

What do you mean became? They’re always on time with deliveries. Hell sometimes they even get them to you before you order
