Large Smuggle Gates

Create Large Smuggle Gates. These should link to distant low sec pockets, can be used as massive short cuts through the Eve universe.

Fix Faction War

A substantial percent of people in low sec are in faction war or they are alts in fw. Imagine how many more people would be in low sec if the occupation mechanic in FW didn't blow.

 

I posted some general ideas of what I'm getting at in the comments.

Themes

Theme: Low-security space is the Wild West, not a pirate haven (or, and a pirate haven)

This is meant as a theme suggestion for what I think low-security space is all about; it's meant as a theme that I think is beneficial to everyone: pirates, victims and vigilantes alike. In the EVE storyline, low-security systems belong to some empire faction. They are not, as is a common perception, a no-mans land -- that would be null-security space. Nor are they the domain of pirate factions and criminals. Low-security ...more »

Misc

Theme not cliche

Stop with idea that low sec is only pirates. Just because people like to pvp in low sec doesn't mean they only want to gank noobs in pve fits. Its just a good way to pvp without the bubbles and blobs of null sec. Low sec is/can be several things: 1)Low sec is NOT where empire meets null sec. It is the front line for the major empire wars. (Null sec BTW is of no interest to the 4 major empires) 2) Because its a literal ...more »

Mechanics

Reduce GCC timers to 5 minutes

GCC and timers should be immediate and short term penalties, not long term time-sinks that cripple pilots from moving around for a quarter of an hour.

Expropriation (LoSec Expansion) Part 2

True "Pirate" systems. Sure, in deep 0.0 you have Angels, Serpentis, Gurista home systems/constellations. However, these cartels should have LoSec systems that are theirs as well - these would not be patrolled by CONCORD/Empire, they would have pirate faction agents, stations and LP stores. Think Tortuga from Pirates of the Carribbean. Gate guns on the "outside" do not fire unless combat occurs at the gate, regardless ...more »

Create Lawbringer and Pirate Haven Systems

Right now there is nothing to being a pirate or anti-pirate other than your security status and how you describe yourself. We should take this a step further. Create scattered systems throughout lowsec that are either Lawbringer Haven's or Pirate Haven's. You will not be allowed to enter these systems unless your security status is +2.5 or higher or -5.0 or lower, respectively. These systems will provide a place where ...more »

Pirate Software

In addition to boosters as low-sec only industry I was also throwing around the idea of some sort of 'Pirate Software' - black codes that left you do Hackish type things.

One simple example would be to replace Locator agents with player 'manufactured' tracing code

Themes

Theme: Corruption

I suggest that one of the overarching themes of low-sec is corruption. I see low-sec to be a place where a willingness to ignore rules can get you a quick buck. * Illegal goods to transport? Smuggle it in or bribe someone to look the other way * Trading got you down? corruption and graft * PI not profitable? Strip mine and pollute. * Someone got something you like? Take it. * Don't like it? Pay someone else to impose ...more »

Expropriation (LoSec Expansion) Part 1

There are four pieces to this suggestion. Each cannot stand alone as a change to losec, because it creates an imbalance. However, a better idea that makes a similar change would be a viable piece of the change. Summary: Following the ongoing struggles between the empires, traders and travellers expressed outrage at the complete lack of security in the war regions. After significant negotiations, CONCORD, in conjunction ...more »

Fixing Piracy and FW in one go!

The problems with low sec Lack of a unique resource Low number of people Non profitable for corporations 2 different, non relate, crowds using the same space (FW and Pirates) My solution is to expand the FW to include the pirate factions that we have in-game. Players will be allowed to join Sanshas, Blood Raiders, etc... And this factions will fight for the control of systems in LS. Here come in play the unique new ...more »
