Very often I get "nopossiblemaps" whenever I try to escape the trolls and the more...amorous RPers. What I've suggested would make it possible for the RPers to be left alone, the people who hate RP to be left in peace, and the trolls are left without a target.
Fleet starbases were kind of a step in the right direction, but not all RPers are in an RP fleet, or necessarily want to RP with their fleetmates. Not to mention, fleet starbases cannot be cross factional.
On the environment side, this a good idea. Along with the player limits on some maps as also mentioned in this thread. Whenever I click the map name to see a dropdown of numbered instances, it would be nice to see one labeled as Roleplay. Although, the point of better GM support would need addressed for it to be worthwhile.
