If you really thought that through you'd realize how stupid that question is. There are people who buy giant hanging bull testicles made of plastic to hang on the trailer hitches of their trucks. If there weren't people that bought them, no one would make them. That's as true for virtual space clothes as it is for plastic bull testicles.

If it was FPS in stations that would be a totally different story. Sadly what we got was the sims without the ability to tailor your house with pink curtains and bear rugs. Also the fact that it takes about two minutes to meander from your ship to the couch is a deal breaker when all that info is available through the neocom at the press of a mouse. What?

Signatures wer cooler when we couldn't remove them completely.

This is just my opinion as it's clear allot of other players like playing dress up barbie and buying skins that only they will see, it's just stuff I have zero interest in that's all.


"I'm a guy" has to be the dumbest possible reasoning. I'm a guy and I love getting nice clothes for my characters.


I'm in no way a BETA, I work on my own vehicles up to and including rebuilding transmissions and engines, I'm a machinist by trade and build my own lifts and suspensions for my off road vehicles and drag cars, I eat live raw mews and oinks when I get hungry, I have a job to do in Eve and could care less about what I look like in my coffin or zooming through space, I'm a man for crying out loud not a damn woman.!

Whomever is making the last few years decisions on what changes are to be implemented in this game, must hate Eve with all their being.

At least all upper clothing... I wear no pants :D


When I created a character, the server said that he must wear pants Sad


I would wear boxers and wife beaters if they were free, so I could be different just like everybody else.

I'm not going to open any of my gift boxes so have no idea what's inside them, gonna have 72 after it's all said and done, gonna leave them unopened so ten or so years down the line when my boy gets old enough to take over (if he wants too) he'll have them to do with as he pleases.

Jesus man. I'm a Fabricator by trade. I build hammer mills for car shredders. What in the Hell does any of that have to do with vanity items in game?

I look at them as a way to give a little extra back to the folks at CCP. when I buy them, and a nice little bonus when they give them as gifts.

Remember, they don't have to give us shyte.

My above response was sort of a joke, I do all that except eat live animals though.

I give CCP bux via proxy of other players by buying PLEX in game for my six active accounts from farming SP from my unused alts (thank's CCP for the ISK sink), I don't want nor need to look pretty so don't use vanity items but I don't care if others want to look pretty.

I have kept and will continue to keep every gift CCP has so graciously given us over the years though.

Gawd, i still want WiS... Sad

just make it voluntary, if u walk outside your captains quarters, u agree to pvp and make it like in space, some sections of the station are more dangerous then others, but nowhere is ever 100% safe :)

I want a personal guard drone or shoulder mounted missilelauncher/railgun/lazor!

I was about to make a similar thread. WiS was abandoned 5 years ago and CCP is still making apparel for it. Why? Dressing fancy is useless when other players cant see it. I havent used the character editor since Incarna was released ...

Are there really players who spend money on apparel?

IMO the devs who make the apparel should make assets for space. Everyone can see them and there is plenty of work to do. Many of the existing assets are really old and could use a refreshment and additional assets would add more variety.


Well they have been refreshing the existing assets and there've been plenty of threads regarding the pros and cons of those updates.

As for players spending money on apparel, well I guess so, otherwise they wouldn't be on the market to buy with ISK.
