This raises some questions.


If this drops as loot from NPC's, will these clothes differ from NEX clothing in that they have a chance of dropping as loot from player kills? Will there be a chance of them being destroyed?

If it drops as loot, will we be able to "build" clothing as well?

If they are not destructible, does it set a precedent, or does it not matter?

And finally, how does this affect the "completely player driven" ( more accurately described as "mostly player drive ) market that exists in eve?

EDIT: Maybe the pants should come from salvaging corpses, and while they're at it, give us a chance to salvage those implants too? Blink

I'm greatly looking forward to this new content in the virtual dress up game that is Eve Online. Ever since Incarna 99% of my in game time has been spent on SiSi creating, recreating, dressing up and showing off my character's lady bits by walking up and down the ramp leading to my captain's quarters. I hope they add shoulder accessories as well.

I'm quite happy with the green tank top but some new colors would be awesome. Smile

So close...

Well in a universe where pants cost as much as faction battleships I can understand why people will be crawling over broken glass to get right on this.

is it just me or does your avatar resemble the person in that link?

I doubt it will be catastrophic.

It's a coincidence but all of my characters are made after irl people I know. It's actually quite creepy from their point of view. I get creamies in my panties just thinking of the possibilities once the door in my captain's quarters opens.

I can appreciate how stalking is kind of a constrained hobby when you're confined to a small dingy room for no apparent reason.

No wonder you are looking forward to stretching your legs for want of a less filthy tern of phrase.

I endorse this too by the way!

Oh baby, I'm looking to stretch a lot more than just my legs.

Nothing more rewarding than stealing another man's pants after a good fight.

The "pants" being discussed drop as loot, so all they cost is your ammo.

Other items will be available in loyalty stores for LP.

As for the new items to hit the Nex, they will range from 100 to 500 AUR, so basically they have knocked a zero off the end of the price... which will make a lot of people very happy.

We are in a RL universe where some game devs show up with pants that cost as much as 1 month salary in some first world country...

No and No.

Doing extra work is out of the question in the first place as a general rule. Listen to how much they insist they didn't do any work on it, you can clearly tell that investing time in clothing is not something they want to do.

Clothing will probably always be invincible. I don't think anybody at CCP is stupid enough to consider making more than that invincible, but we'll see when ship logos/ship skins rolls around.

They don't care, they never will. They want to seize micro transactions so badly, and the only place they can get in on that without massive player rage is in vanity items.

The only real chance you have at that is if Twilight Online has a clothing crafting systems, they may use that here. Most likely, its going to be MT funded to make it F2P if the current trend of MMOs is around when they actually release the game.

This is good news - I'm looking forward to the Militia Dress Shirts.

I hope they continue the design process in a way that we can get Dress Shirts or Flight Jackets with your individual Corp Logo.

I predict that I will still suck at this game when these changes are made.
