Here is food for thought.
What if we “Open the Eve Gate” back to the home system? How much has it changed? What technologies have been invented? What new places would there be to explore? Mysteries to be solved?
Just entertain the thought: We find a way to open the Eve Gate but it is only large enough to fit a corvette through? No matter how many skill points you have it would be like starting over mining or ratting in a corvette! New content and new NPC factions. It would be a fresh start for players who never experienced the beginning of eve.
We could have it where you would have to gain reputation with Factions in order to gain any Concord like protection when in their space. The security of the systems could be dependent upon your standing with those NPC factions. Just make it when you build standing with one faction will reduce your standing with other factions regardless of your activities. of course there can still be Player owned space. There could be a new currency system as where later on down the road there could be a costly conversion option!
It would be a race of epic proportions. All this could be accomplished without dividing the Community and having the ability to jump from one area to another if you want to come back through!
Just an idea. What does the eve community think? Suggestions?
