I recently had an idea for fleets as the members of the one I belong to, Access Denied, has members that struggle to be able to put fleet marks into projects as we are a large fleet. The idea is this: A communal pool that members can add fleet marks and other items needed for projects. This pool would have allow the player to get fleet credits up front, as soon as they add the marks or other resources, instead of fighting other fleet mates to dump marks. The resources added to the communal pool in this way would then be used to fill projects as soon as they are started.
Needs some sort of control. Some projects are just more important than others to fleets. No point in automatically filling a provision project for a Tier 3 Embassy when the Tier 1 Spire project needs to be completed. Also projects delete the contributed commodities so a communal pool will take some major effort for it to work.
My suggestion is a provision project that requires just a ton of Fleet Marks like 5,000 Fleet Marks for 10 Engineering, Military, and Science Equipment Provisions and only takes 30 minutes.
