Proposal
bring down the timer from 1 hour to a more reasonable time, 10mins or less
Justification
credit sink,
Motivation
this is used by a lot of people apparently 60%of players own one, but only on a very limited amount of times, this is supposed to be a credit sink so why not make it usable more often.

This has already been raised as a player voice and closed by devs S per the below :

The timer is set as it is because:

“A primary concern raised about the implementation of ITVs was the ability to use them to flee from and/or avoid bounty hunters. Accordingly, the delay in time gives a bounty hunter the opportunity to interrupt a call of the ITV;
  1. The ITV is not intended to be a "get out of jail free" solution to being in a sticky situation where you could use it to avoid combat/death and thus death penalties like wounds and decay. As such, the timer maintains a balance in the risk/reward of the instantaneousness of travel perk when used.
There are 6 ways to get around:
  1. Walk
  2. Use a vehicle
  3. Use a shuttle
  4. Use a ship
  5. Use an Instant Travel Vehicle
  6. Die and clone
Each has tradeoffs and benefits….. ITVs were not intended to be an easy-to-use, freebie gift to traveling around quickly without cost, planning, or playing.”

So it looks like this is not going to change.

this is a new issue being raised and i would refer you to your number 5 , i am asking for a reduction in the frequncy it can be used , not in the 30 second cool down and if you had read the voice correctly you would have known that rather than jump in with both feetand stick your oar in posting something irrelevant to this conversation, as that player voice was indeed about the itv and its actual instantanious usage if memory serves; back on topic, the 1 hour cooldown which is something that can be adjusted to allow more use not a get out of jail card, as you point out, i would refer you to a talk in discord if i can find it , where it was noted that the developement team may look at the 1 hour cool down timer if a player voice was raised. So i re iterate make the 1 hour cooldown for itv more reasonable , to every 10 minutes or less, as a money sink this would generate more use, more sales of fuel cells and more credits sunk back into the galactic vaults and allows player who choose to use itv's the opertunity to do so more frequently.

We aren’t removing any extra charges they’re intentional sinks

We’d consider adjusting the cooldown timer. You can create a player voice about that
