Arguably there’s not enough risk to the activity of seeding holes with scanners now that endless scanning alts can be spooled up on alphas. There’s also a further concern with ease of exploration bot scalability with shareable access lists.
I propose if a player remains undocked in space for longer than 16 hours they can no longer save corporation/alliance/extended access bookmarks until they dock with a structure.
However, they are free to save personal bookmarks. Personal bookmarks can be transferred normally to the Corp/alliance folder once the player docks.
If a scanner wants to share intel with a broader group (i.e. move bookmarks from personal to corp/alliance), they have three options:
- Scan a way out of the wormhole to a structure. Once docked the timer resets and player is free to transfer personal bookmarks to a Corp folder. Undock and backtrack to seeded hole. Log out.
- Self destruct, burn the seed, and leave a dscan identifiable wreck behind. Medical clone awakes in structure. Bookmark transfer lock timer resets.
- Anchor dockable structure in hole.
I see this approach as fostering more opportunities for pvp engagement and paranoia. Yet, if risk was to really be ramped up, I would advocate for personal bookmarks being automatically deleted upon pod death.
