This is based on the idea of @Haulie_Berry.
Plenty of apparently slightly conflicted players,
who build up moon drills in highsec,
are complaining about how undeccable people can mine “their” ore.
I put the their in marks, because it’s not actually their ore,
despite them setting up a moon drill.
In reality it’s everyone’s ore,
much to the dismay of those who set up the structure.
The argument that one should set one up the drill lowsec is valid, but also silly,
because it would fundamentally suggest people in highsec run moon-ore-charities.
While I believe that suicide ganking can be an option,
when the opponent’s fleet consists solely of Orcas and Skiffs,
it is unreasonable to assume that the broad mass is able to deal with it.
Those who want to fight back have no option to do so within their immediately apparent capabilities. Thus Haulie Berry came up with the idea of simply making everyone outside the corp’s structure suspect, with ACLs being completely ignored.
The reason for the exclusion of Access Lists lies in the fact that then the very people, who claim to wish to fight back, would be abusing it by hiding in undeccable corps, shielded from the potential war about their moon drill.
Taking “highsec logic” and boiling it down to the essentials, it’s actually inconsistent.
- You can protect stuff in your ship’s wreck when someone wants to steal it. (ignoring Suspect/GCC)
- You can protect stuff in NPC wrecks you’ve created.
- You can protect stuff in jetcans you’ve created.
- You can not protect stuff that’s being created by your structure.
- Everyone outside of a moon drill owning corp/alliance receives a suspect state for mining its respective moon ore.
- To balance this with HighSec’s mechanics and prevent abuse, ACLs shall not be considered here.
This way, literally no one except the very owners of the structure (the characters, as it should be!) are able of “safely” mining the ore in question.
If this proves to be a successful event,
I ask for it to become a permanent feature.
Thank you and thank you to Haulie Berry for this idea.
