Slots for Shuttles

I burn through shuttles like they are going out of fashion. The journey from A to B used to be much quicker, without my constant attendance on autopilot if one was in a shuttle, and such craft harbour little rewards from suicide gank squads.

I own a score of shuttles scattered across New Eden in various safe ports, and these shuttles are left to rot until such time I either attempt to sell them locally for an extortionate amount if isk or recycle them to clean house. I’ve also witnessed a massive shuttle graveyard orbiting a lonely ice planet. I occupied each shuttle in turn only to initiate an overload of the engines to destroy the craft resulting in an insurance pay-out of two grand. Time consuming I admit, but I rarely say nay to either free isk or explosions.

The ownership of shuttles is a formal experience. Used solely for traversing the vast darkness of space they are extremely focussed on this vocation. If a shuttle were to have a slot, it would be a much more personal experience. Variation could be advanced from this flexibility allowing the craft to be used for other roles.

As nine-tenths of the law dictates that ownership is paramount to a person’s status, it would be favourable to allow pilots to engage in designs on their own possessions, including but not exclusively for the lowly shuttle.
