Tranquility (EVE) Influence Map
Life is absurd, but with a little effort we can make it completely ridiculous
And having gotten used to no timer at all, this new timer is SO DAMN ANNOYING. Sigh.
The goal is removing all pos and replacing them with citadels
Which doesn't require recreating the asset management & docking code (because it's the same functionality as stations), just the fuel and POS modules stuff. They seem to have got sucked into a distraction of making new POS/POCOs into stations, rather than new stations with modules & fuel needs but only the same old asset functionality.
well yeah this is ccp. Docking in citadel acts pretty different from docking in a station: you keep shield and cap levels while docked and its spits you out instanly when you press the undock button so im pretty sure its a completly different thing compared to old station code.
The way it looks to me is that citadels started as immoveable ships, able to fit modules, be 'flown', and engage in combat, and station-like features were added to them, like docking asset storage, contracts, etc... Somebody even has a pic somewhere of a citadel in warp. Last I checked, double clicking in space while manning a citadel gives the little direction indicator.
If you look at the history of bugs you would know why they would want to completely redo docking and asset mechanics.

It's obvious the citadels are a dirty hack, there several bugs indicating tethering was very similar to just being cloaked ongrid iirc.
But yeah, seems they approached it from the wrong direction. Must've been some legacy station code that they didn't dare try to duplicate and split out for citadels.
Though they did only relatively recently do the Unified Inventory code, unless that was just a 64bit ID update and the rest mostly butchering the clientside UI for months.
Y'all remember when we rioted and CCP said "Okay. No ore Jesus features until we fix things."? Maybe that needs to happen again...
The game wouldn't let me manually decloak today and I got tidi in my wh system at 10:00 :yes:
