I often times hear the larger Empires complaining about content.
I suggest upgrading the NPC’s in all systems to various levels of PvP capable ships.
To generate content I suggest that each system have its own NPC Aggression Scale. The Aggression Scale would factor into NPC ships being deployed to gates and belts based on a Capsuleer’s standings with the local NPC corporation.
For example if a system is under an Aggression Scale of +5 the highest level, then NPC ships would actively attack a Capsuleer based on their standings until the system De-aggressed or the Capsuleer rose in standings with the NPC corporation occupying the system.
I also suggest that when a Drifter wormhole is in a system that the Drifter BS would be more noticeable in the system until the wormhole despawned.
