I'd like to suggest either a Structure or Research that reduces Storage fees. I play by stockpiling cheap resources, then selling for a profit, but the storage cost is prohibitive.
I'd spend a few logistics on a cheap-upkeep Warehouse, or spend some Corp Research to reduce the fee. Nothing groundbreaking, of course, but it could add another choice, another pro/con option that opens up additional gameplay options

I would mention that product in cargo doesnt cost storage.

Also, you want to spend money on a wherehouse, to reduce the cost of storage, which costs money? I mean are you just trying to stockpile all your stuff in one place so its easier to distribute?

I can make your corp HQ reduce the storage cost. I cant remove it because it is one of the things that eventually bankrupts abandoned corps. Its also a nudge to clean up your product because its harder on the system when everyone has 200 piles of junk everywhere.

I understand completely, and I wouldn't want it removed. And yes, you'd have to pay for a warehouse, but if it was cheaper than the equivalent amount of resources, it may be worth it, depending on location and playstyle. A warehouse would use up your Logistics like any other structure. It'd basically be the equivalent of having a dozen freighters sitting around holding cargo, without all the extra order-giving.
At the moment I do have a lot stockpiled for manufacturing, I may have gone overboard on what I needed, but that's what sparked the idea

I really encourage this idea, trying to set myself up as raw material supplier and the stockpiling is getting expensive fast. making the HQ reduce storage costs also sounds great

not saying the mechanic should disappear, just saying it should be possible to stockpile on a cheaper location

I would try to make it half cost at the Corp HQ without any extra charge.

Memorandum of Storage Fee Reduction Events:

Event A: Mahavara/nynobernie/Neerio triumvirate complains about high storage costs and subsequently successfully convince DoctorDread to halve storage costs.
Event B: Storage Costs Half Price mechanism put into effect! Celebrations ensue.

... some time later:
Event C: LOOP to Event A infinitely.

ROFL
