It's super encouraging to see that CCP listened to the CSM's recommendations at the recent summit regarding pricing, and super encouraging to see Avatar items for the first time that ARENT tied to Aurum. This is definitely a step in the right direction.

I'll be grabbing a Minmatar uniform for sure!

Secondly, we are going to be adding a number of items to the Nex store but at somewhat lower Aurum prices than we have in the past. Items will be available at 100, 300 and 500 AUR prices. Existing items from before June 19th will remain in the store, for now, at the current prices so that we don’t devalue the investment that some players have already made.


Going at the $15 for 2500 AUR rate, the 500 AUR items are three bucks each. You're getting closer to a sane price point if 500 AUR is the highest-priced item.

This is where prices should have been at Incarna launch, there would have been much less apeshit rage.

Honestly, spending real money on an element of the game that has nothing to do with ... the game.

Makes no sense to me.

To each their own, of course :)

At Fanfest we had a large number of people asking us to give them more options for personalizing the look of their avatar.
A large number was asking for content not being related to FIS? Hilarious!

Well, i'm really (!) looking forward to this nice enrichment; and the reffered "large numbers of people" surely too. SmileBear

Yay finally some use for the 250,000 AUR... Also can we please be allowed to send AUR to other pilots soon?

Will the clothing from loot include items with rips, burns, and bodily fluid stains?

Its a cold, harsh universe, and sometimes you need to remove a man's coat with a knife or blaster.

Interesting, now if only we, linux users, could get to the Captain's Quarters if only to change clothes ... Roll

Yeah, CQ stopped working for linux+wine users months ago, but since none of us ever use it we didn't bother complaining about it Bear

How about we fix the current skirt before introducing new broken ones.

I hate to be the person to point this out but the UK is getting screwed again with the AUR direct purchase prices. The 2.5k purchase is overpriced by about £2 vs the dollar price. The $ to £ very rarely drops below 1.5 (and is in fact higher at this point) and can go as high as 1.7+.

Something I've always thought would be interesting would be to go to all the colleges that have fashion design degrees and offer to work with them to enable them to make virtual clothes in EvE in exchange for school credit. That way, you would have a ready supply of clothes without having to put out the development effort. In fact, I'm going to put this in the "make the game this way" post.

If they already had these assets, they should have been rolled out when the NEX was launched, why wait in the first place.

I hope this is just the beginning. Myself and some other fine gentlemen at fanfest told Unifex what it is we expected from the NEX.

Maybe, who knows, we'll even get it.

Who's $!#^ do I have to &%#^ to get an eyepatch?

I do like the changes and am glad to see specific faction war uniforms. That's cool (even cooler if you could somehow tie decorations into the clothing selection screen). But, spaceships first and foremost.

Because a bunch of people freaked the hell out about it for no reason and this would be seen as throwing gas on a fire/ignoring the extremely vocal minority.

It's neatly packed away in the OPE. Would be cool if we could open the OPE and getting some random clothing instead of selling it to concord
