Hey Kix, how about a new addition to our bases...  My idea is a retrofit dry dock.  Used ONLY to retrofit existing hulls.  I know you guys probably think it will cost you some coin BUT, if you make the retrofit times double normal build times, it shouldn't affect your bottom line.  So while you are building a ship in the shipyard, users can retrofit an existing hull but at double the time it would take in the shipyard...  So users can have 2 hulls going at once...  Well, what does everyone think?

    we could do with a dry dock to help ease the time it takes to build new hulls because you can refit and build at the same time and those who want to coin can do on both giving Kixeye more coin into the bargain

    think a dry dock is a good idea but with double the time no sense then time are way to long as it is
    I just figure it has to be sold to Kix for them to buy in.  Even if its at double build time it's better than what we have now which is 0.  I would be happy with any ability to retrofit without having to tie up valuable shipyard time.  It just seems as though hulls that aren't retrofitted become useless as the weapons and technologies become more advanced.

    They are so concerned with fast money, that they don't realize this would make them even more in the long run. Kixeye has never been good at making business decisions.

    I've loved this idea since the first time it was ever proposed, but they keep throwing the idea right in the trash every time.

    Even now, when the build and refit times are so long that it is impossible to make older ships useful again.....they still wont revisit the suggestion.

    We need a refit/drydock now more than ever before, and I doubt very seriously that they will ever give it to us.

    ok no dry dock but what about different class shipyards. shipyard for each class of hull w/ different bonuses or perks like factions

    I think that would be a very good idea indeed

    How about they just do a dry dock why make it double the amount of time as ships already take way to long. I do not think they will do it as kix only does things that get them money and non coiners pissed

    I have the same suggestion as most above only i purpose you allow the gantry to be used for refits so that  we get some use out of it since once you have the Hyperion built  the gantry doesn't have a purpose.

    why not just make it so you can refit anytime after build is complete for a coin or two per weapon or special/ like an any time refit would come in handy during raids and make them money. a win win situation.

    Don't know about a dry dock but shipyards for each of the class's of ships would be nice just like we have the gantry for the mega why not class shipyards --

    I just scrap old ships now,no point in keeping them,cant do anything with them but take up space in storage.I also dont coin hulls when new or coin at all anymore once Kixeye got out of hand and started to not listen to its customers. I might coin a refit if at a reasonable amount,like say 2-5$ per ship if they still use-able in the game,defiantly wouldnt for a hull that is useless period,wasn't that what the retrofit research was supposed to help with? Oh right that got left out to dry when they realized they couldn't make money from something taht should be free lol.,Kixeye would never come up with a reasonable $ amount,build times are creeping back up again as is and they think we dont notice their tricks lol
