Hope you know that only one man trying build Palatine right now. But his live is short and EVE need that revolution.
1) Create public available vault, just like PLEX vault.
2) For example, its located in Jita. It can fill by components from any players (Alpha/Omega), any place of New Eden and Anoikis in one-way mode with notification about this, like notification when you drop item to corporation hangar. But depend on how far away from Jita, it require tax payment, same as asset safety.
a) Limit fill when components will collect.
b) Do not limit fill components collect, if there is plan to built more then one Palatine. However its create speculations in voting.
3) Create Palatine ledger of investers. It must be in game and public available, but need duplicate it to game site, fro example to https://www.eveonline.com/articles and link on it to launcher.
WARNING: then follow intrigue, just like all you love, watch my hands.
4) When components will be enough for building Palatine in perfect manufacturing conditions (Sotiyo in null/WH with T2 rig), developer initiate election, for example, using in game panel with acces to investers only and they deliver their votes to any candidate which they choose in search panel. One component equal one vote.
All this can be adapted to in game corporation shares, for example CCP corporation, let them justify their existence.
a) Yes, components have different cost, which can serve speculation to cheap votes, but weak majority is not new in this game. Also it provokes to hurry up in building.
b) Cheap or smallest amount of components can be available to fill only for alpha accounts or young characters.
How do you like that login campaign and recruiting activity, CCP?
c) Its only way for TAPIRIUM to have Palatine.
d) Make available to sell characters with votes.
5) Chosen one take acces to use collected components in manufacturing or take acces to withdraw components from vault in any manufacturing place. Its remove problem of transportation components to facility, but i think if some one want build Palatine, he/she smart and decide to build components in correct place, not in Thera.
a) Chosen one choose place of building. If he/she choose facility with less manufacturing bonuses then Sotiyo in null/WH with T2 rig, then component collecting will continue.
b) Missing components, items of non structure group, blueprint and manufacturing tax is chosen one problem, let him working to.
6) Further manipulations with Palatine is chosen one right.
a) Ofc, if Palatine will be deployed and destroyed, then developer add names from Palatine ledger to monument biography in crime place.
b) I think developer should create monuments to any destroyed Palatine, for we can collect mega monument in Anoikis.
How about that ISK SINK, CCP?
