I'm looking forward to the changes, the current pricing points are way too high, that's why very few people have ever purchased clothing from there, now that there will be loot drops, LP store purchases and overall cheaper prices in the NEX store, I think there will be much more interest in using it.

Thanks for listening CCP!

When it comes to clothing, I would like a different approach - I would want to appear more machine than man.

Taking a page from Shadowrun, instead of sunglasses, I would have flare compensators in my electronic eyes. Since I have the common stock of implants in my head, various blinking lights would be somewhat noticable by those staring. Bone lacing and dermal plating, along with a touch of muscle replacement, would give me a super human - Terminator robot combination appearance. If CCP expands to allow hand-to-hand combat within the station, then razor claws and wired reflexes should be optional.

Side note: I would already be in negative essence to their (old) rules, but I'm rolling here. P

At one point, my character sheet had me as a "Soldier"; so while the uniforms are good, I want the accessories too. My old avatar had the bandolier across the chest and what appeared to be a wrench tied to my back. So numerous ammo clips, grenades, a small collection of guns and knives strapped across my body, and a slung weapon would be great! The Punisher in his prime!

Oh, and a bandanna too.

But I am a realist and know such ideas would be quite time consuming to design and code for a full avatar motion. Especially since I would want the various items to have their own subtle motions, instead of everything appearing to be "stuck" to me.

Or a nice Hunter Rose tuxedo with a red rose would be ideal too! Twisted

Personally i am very much against micro-transactions in a subscription based game as it does feel like we are being double charged, so i am against the whole idea of Aurum and micro-transactions.
Although I think a greater customisation/personalisation to our avatars is a great idea and should be continued.

Okay so i'm a bit demanding, so sue me... (please dont).

I realise it would be very difficult financially for CCP to do both atm so.....

If CCP cant afford to remove Aurum and simply give players this content ( or be able to buy it straight off through isk/LP etc without any involvement of MC) on a continual basis, one idea may be to hold off on creating any more clothing until Dust and/or WoD have been released and are bringing in some revenue.
(just an idea)

Anyway...

That said, i've loved a lot of the new updates and will def keep playing if things continue this way.
The idea of buying unique clothing from FW using isk/LP is inspired, maybe you could expand on this and make it possible for the bigger player corps/alliances to put their logos on their clothing as well.

What's the deal CCP, Cant get anything done without training a couple months first?


No, they've just got a list of things they need to get done, and the clothes are at the end of that list. I can't wait for the new clohes, personally, but it's not a huge, huge vitally-important thing that CCP has to preempt more important work to launch.

Patience, grasshopper -- you'll get to the treasure soon enough.

I can't get rid of my darn signature!  Oh, wait....

Currently we can't tell an allied militia other than by checking in the corp etc.

It would be nice if these militia uniforms:

1) were offered for free to people who obtain top rank in faction war

2) could only be worn by people in the militia.

That way we could have a way to tell if somone is in an allied militia or not.

edit:
-also neutrals would be able to tell if someone is in a militia too if they learn the uniforms.


Good ideas here. Will pass them on to the stars working on FW.



I'm going to make a shameless plug here for another thread showing support from both inside and outside of the FW community for uniforms/rank insignia/etc exclusive to FW pilots. (see signature)

Also I'm all for berets and top hats! Maybe FW berets with insignia on them? Yes! I love it!

Support FW uniforms here - https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&find=unread&t=112233

See now, this guy makes sense.

Whether or not you win the game matters not.  It's if you bought it.

Stupid stupid stupid.......Sad

Avatar clothes should be derived from the monthly subscription like everyting else ingame.
The focus on Aurum just leads down the road of few and expencive items most of us would not touch with the ugly stick for the fear that it will spread to other freatures....

And promises are made to be broken, sadly.

Good gods all you people do is whine....you're all a bunch of children, trolls, and down right morons.

How the hell you people can equate this to buying ships for AUR is beyond me, you doomsayers really need to get a grip. Yes, this is business, but CCP are committed to keeping Eve the sandbox it is. How avatar gameplay waters down the sandbox is beyond me, or did you blind morons not notice the whole "we scrapped the old system and we're sorry we had the audacity to call it an expansion" thing?

Second that, have 5500 on several accounts and il never touch the filth Evil

CQ also turned out to be the worst delivery of a wanted feature i have ever seen on any game, i remember it being presented on Fanfest 2006 as a thing they where playing at, then again two years later we got to trie it out, walking around in a station and oogling a sexy stripper in a bar (higly enjoyable).
Then last year u managed to release a bugriddled rusty shack and call it a major release (and the filth of aurum), no wonder people went balistic.

For the love of EVE just toss out Aurum Cry

Keep it for dust514 and dust514 alone if u must for revenue, but keep it out of a well working suscription system.

Yep. I'm sure the Dust Bunnies will eat that **** up, like typical console gamers. Milk that cash cow, but don't expect us to fall for the same trap.

Next it will be ship paint, then god knows what else. Pretty soon we'll have to pay several times over, just to play the full version of the game we already pay to play.

**** MT.

Not that there's anything Micro about paying $15 for something that is nothing more than a few 1's and 0's.

Mhm. And Farmville isn't one of the worst games ever created. DLC isn't just a way to charge for things that should have been in the game from the start. Buying a fancy digital hat isn't a total waste of money.

I don't know much about the militia stuff but what are the militia uniforms from left to right. I will definitely sign up for the white uniform to go with my lockstep boots and blue/blacktrim pants


Also.. I wouldn't mind if you guys added a second "tool" to those uniforms or if you just let men get the bodices and women have the full shirt as well. That white uniform with the bodice is pretty hot Blink
