Maybe a smaller selection of doffs (i.e. general doff guy, no specialists) and smaller selection of provisioned items (just phaser/disruptor/quantum/photon items but still have both Advanced and Elite)
That would work indeed, even perhaps an outpost on a variety of different type of exterior. What about these as well for possible smaller bases for smaller groups? Also, what about Utopia Planitia type bases?

I completely agree, as well why hasn't Cryptic also presented a building project for that of the community as a whole?

I dislike the notion of carving out private apartments in Starbases, since most Starfleet crew are stationed aboard vessels for years at the time. So if there is to be any housing, it should be from improved ship interiors instead - it's an existing location that each player has private access to. I'm developing a proposal for player-customisable ship interiors that could also be used as mission maps and access to player services, details of which are in my signature.

But I digress. Let us here instead focus on centersolace's proposal of lowering project requirements for smaller fleets at the cost of longer cooldowns.
Well, i can understand that position however this is a game after all and why not have a carved out private apartment at a starbase or otherwise? Remember when people return to earth they do have their own apartment or home they do return to and they have been out to space for years so why not have a place that is yours within the game?
