Since there are medium, large, and XL structures, which allow large, caps, and supercaps respectively, I think that there should be “small” structures allowing medium ships (up to combat battlecruisers) to dock in them, for people who want a less expensive station. A small structure would allow docking for industrial and transport ships, so it would be possible to have a one set it up.
Maybe they could have shorter anchor and teardown times, too.
Cheaper wardecs too.
I think the structures should be made of materials that have 100m total price, and maybe the core should be 50-100m too.
That is indeed cheaper than all current structures.
I’d love a small citadel.
Small structures are things like Mobile Depots. Go hunt out the initial structure devblogs for the layout.
So, CCP has talked about some sort of small structure that can be used as a FOB, or for daytripping. Now, I do know that there is some support for the idea, but there doesn’t appear to be a critical mass, and I think the last time I heard CCP say anything about it was about the time they released upwell flex structures. So, you’re probably going to have to try to sell people on why a small structure would be good for the game if you hope to get anywhere with this.
You could have it so it acts like a mobile depot with a 30 day expiration and 2 day reff, but allows docking and reshipping, for hiding in one wormhole for a day or two to clear all the sites, harvest all the gas, and mine all the rocks, then fly everything back to hisec.
That there is a good reason not to allow one.
It sounds like you’re talking about being able to take resources out of wormholes without as much risk or investment as now.
