1. PLEX is a game-time code/card. You can either pay $20 EU to get one from the Account Management web page, or, some people buy them with cash and then re-sell them on the market in Jita for 800m ISK? So if you manage to mine/mission/loot/steal 800 m ISK ingame per month, you can buy a PLEX from the market and then apply it to your subscription and it extends it for 1 month.

3. EVE Client is the program that you have to download to play the game. Go to the main www.eveonline.com page and click the download button.

4. Someone may donate, but you can make 10m easily by doing the tutorial missions, and otherwise 5-40m / hr mining / missions / exploration etc. It's not that hard to make money.

1. Pilots License EXtension - 30d game time, 900m ISK or 30d training queue on another toon.
2. no idea
3. It's what makes Eve go.
4. Someone can but will likely just shoot you with some Void S instead.

New Eden isn't nice. It isn't friendly. It isn't very hospitiable. Good thing there are people here to shoot in the face.

Want to make New Eden a nice place? Try this out.

1) Pilot License EXtension. aka 30 days of game time, or access to services like dual character training/resculpt. can also be converted to AUR for things in the New Eden Store (NES) mostly ship skins and some clothing stuff. you can use them to play for "free" ie you grind out x mil/month to buy said PLEX and pay 0 real money each moth. They are selling for 940m in jita right now, and imo that is way too much grinding to be worth it. Although if I had a few trillion isk I probably wouldn't mind spending a bil each month for game time.

2) I think so, not 100% sure on it though, pretty sure I've seen people with dust pilots in their corps

3) thingy isn't a very good descriptor, sure I'll admit to using it a lot, but I'm not quite sure what you are referring to in this case.

4) people generally don't like seeing questions like that. also I think the NPE gives so much stuff these days you don't need any.

My corp had a dust pilot in it at one point. It was someone's RL friend I think. Not that the reason matters just that I know it can happen. As far as the other way around I'm not sure, I've never played dust. If you are a dust vet did you ever hear of or see that in dust corps? I would imagine if it works one way that it would work the other.

Probably the best way to find out is to try it out and see if it works.
