Summary[edit]

Many 0.0 players feel that titans' logistic abilities should be expanded and their combat capabilities deemphasized. Players and developers alike have expressed discontent with how the Doomsday device changes. What I propose is simple: let's try to follow through with the often suggested development of more abilities and features for titans that help groups model their organizations around them, and in trade, abolish one of the worst mistakes CCP ever made, the Doomsday device. Naturally, there are without a doubt a number of technical limitations behind turning them into stations. A market service in the titan is likely completely unfeasible, as would the ability to dock or log off inside of them. However, a mobile factory or refinery could be possible, and it is important for us to try to come up with other, more sophisticated and unique features we could give them, without simply turning them into an extremely expensive POS with the same functions. This should hopefully answer both “what is possible” and “if it is possible” parts of the question.

Potential Solutions[edit]

  • Potential Solution A: Add new logistics-related abilities to titans and remove the doomsday
    • Pros
      • People will be pleased with new possible features, such as mobile factories, refineries, and the like.
      • People will be relieved with not having to deal with doomsdays ever again.
    • Cons
      • People who have already built titans may feel cheated that what they paid for has changed.
      • Costs programming time
