Well ... I don't think it's a situation of can't work it out, as much as it is when to work it out (now anyway), and then, renting or leasing may not be the way to go, even though it would seem perhaps a good option given that there are investors with more than one hangar.
Well can't as in haven't in many months. It just seems counter intuitive to place a choke point on traveling to places like CND and CP and any of the new planets.
I understand that just adding more hangars can mean alot of P.O.ed current Hangar owners being that it dilutes their investment. But there really needs to be a system of travel that allows folks to move off planet without spending an arm and a leg to do so and they should not have to book passage months in advance.
My feeling is that the price of a ticket should be low enough a noob can afford it without sweating for 20 days or depositing next months food budget, yet still allow the pilots/hangar owners to make a decent profit for their trouble. MA can adjust these costs easy enough by regulating the decay and fuel requirements. Not sure how hard it is to recode these factors but I hope such has been taken into consideration with the coming Cry Engine update.
If MA does not alleviate the "choke point" all space travel has to deal with currently I feel any New Planets will suffer. Fast Cheap Travel is vital to a working economy.
I know one of the things that drew me into EU was being a pilot of a space ship. I grew up watching moon launches live on TV and I dreamed of flying in Space when I became an adult. (Curse you NASA for quiting on the moon shots) Now all I can hope for is being a Pilot in virtual Worlds. However MA has got the system so constricted ATM it requires more than the price of a new Car in RL just to be a pilot in this game.
Something is wrong with that formula IMHO.
