So I know eve is extremely biased to Nullsec and massive Alliances Cough (CSMs fault)
However There is an extreme gap in the starting / small range infrastructure. Mobile depots are only for 1 person and cant really be used for more then refitting. POSes are being thrown out and most of there stuff is super garbage anyway. Medium structures are just too expensive and cumbersome and meant for medium sized corps with a decent amount of people.
What this boils down to is smaller groups of 4-5 or even worse solo players are forced into investing in infrastructure they cant utilize or defend effectively. OR being forced to join a corporation and play by there rules and hope that the corp doesn’t fail outright.
Now that FLEX Structures are implemented and almost all of the POS features are moved over its only a matter of time before CCP axes POSes outright. Yet there is still no word on Smaller structures.
A basic outline of what is needed:
100-200m est value: basically where poses where at
low/high Power states: Low would mean no reinforce, high would mean 1 reinforce
1 service slot:
Clone bay for FOBs (for null)
Factory for small/light indy
Refinery (compressor) mostly for roaming wormholes and the like.
Restricted docking of subcaps only
Quick online/offline time( Hours not days )
For everyone thinking “why”. I posted this because for people coming into eve and everyone going hey there is a lot of opportunity, well in reality there isn’t. You can join null or join an established corp because building one from scratch is just to much for new people and it really kills the game for most regular players.
