# 1 Looting:

We're in favor of it!

Ok, maybe you'd like me to elaborate. The range that you can loot in space is too small. In fact if you can loot after a kill, then get out of there because your about to take some explosion damage!

Since ships don't turn on a dime, you'll spend way too much time trying to collect that auxiliary battery. Looting in space is especially painful in groups, as everyone else is full impulsing away while your trying to turn around to loot.

It's especially fun to stay behind trying to loot in a fleet action, where the next group will spawn on top of you. Now it's time to solo 4 k'tinga class battle cruisers, 5 BOP's and 1 whatever they call the carrier... have fun!

Let's say 10k for a loot radius would be good.

I'll sign on for this. How about this: Any loot within 10 KM, you can beam into your cargo hold. Any loot within 15 KM, you can tractor beam into your cargo hold.

Really, what's the point of having to be near loot you can pick up to get it? To annoy Cruiser captains? It serves no purpose and is annoying, so there's no reason to keep it.
