Customs Office changes on the horizon

CCP Omen asked for feedback on the player-owned customs offices introduced in Crucible.

After a few weeks to let the responses flow, he responded with this information:

I just wanted to post an update on what we are doing with your feedback.

DONE – Waiting for deployment (probably in January)

  • Boost storage capacity of the “storage pin” to 12000 m3 from 5000 m3
  • Increased the granularity of the standing check so that the standing of the user is checked on an individual and alliance level as well. The personal standing towards the owner corp takes precedence over the corp that in its turn takes precedence over alliance standing. Please keep in mind that it is still the owner corporation’s standing that it is checked towards.

ON BACKLOG – things that we are planning to do that will be released in point releases

  • Allow owner of Customs Office to set standing check on behalf of own Alliance
  • Allow owner of Customs Office to choose which wallet taxes are paid to

IN INVESTIGATION – Things we aren’t sure about but are considering for the future

  • Remove the alliance only restriction on placing command centers in sov space
  • Changes to the Jet Can
  • Changes to the InterBus CO hp

Thank you for your feedback!

The storage pin (aka the silo) has need changes since its inception, with its present capacity of 5000 m3 being pitiful in comparison to the 10k of a spaceport, complete with launch capability. Perhaps now it will see more use.
