Ok, few things in here that i wanna talk about, thanks to a point one of the awesome isd guys made the other day, that there is some issues with stations. lets start with your opinions
What do you think the issues with stations are right now?
How would you improve them?
Stations have some basic issues, most importantly is their ability to be defended well by corporations with out defensive capabilities; I think there is two ways of tackling this, either by buffing them, or by making them more economically viable to non-pvp focused corps that have less, or no populations to protect them.
So in this way, i recommend we look at doing something like a insurance system for stations, so the pve corps can more easily replace them. Think barge level of efficiency in isk.
We should also look at countering the high isk income of mining corporations to control it from getting out of hand. For this reason i recommend we make rigs have a daily fuel usage rate. I dont recommend changing the current rates of anything, but simply reducing the cost of rigs by 30% in place of the longer term drain on fuel costs.
We should also tax all player owned stations a base 5% amount this will provide a huge sink for eve.
Another big issue we need to look at is that its often more efficient to drop another station then to rig it, and this should not be the case. For this reason i purpose a stacking cost effect on stations in high and low sec. this would work like it does for the war system, adding more costs as you progressive add more stations.
Maybe something like Each station has a 50M bill in high sec, 25M in low + [base + 25%]
50 > 75 > Etc
