These are indestructible. Your appearance will stay the same. Apparently each cloning facility has a stash of clothes, prosthetic limbs, tattoo ink to re-fancy our new bodies.

Cosmetics in cargo will drop or will be destroyed upon popping.

If you need help to remove your tattoo, just let me know. I have research a new method using antimatter that I am sure will work.

would be nice if we could harvest clothes from pods somehow with a special device and then the original owner would loose it in process and have to buy again.

We're naked whilst in our capsule...

Quoted from Doc Fury: "Concerned citizens: Doc seldom plays EVE on the weekends during spring and summer, so you will always be on your own for a couple days a week. Doc spends that time collecting kittens for the on-going sacrifices, engaging in reckless outdoor activities, and speaking in the 3rd person."

It should and I should be able to cross-dress only by acquiring clothing this way.

Imagine explaining that to noobs. You can tell he is a pirate because he is dressed like a woman.

They are not destroyed, because you don't wear those clothes in pod. The lore states so, you swim in a pod goo.

They can be destroyed if they are in your ship cargohold.

I can kinda be on-board with this.

To be fair, I really only want Gara to be able to wear the camo pants that female Caldari get in their default wardrobe. Those are seriously the best pants in the game.

Is everything a stealth thread?

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

You are not actually buying the clothing. You are buying a license to posses a copy of the clothing. If one set gets destroyed, you get a free new copy, at least if the destruction was the result of a pod kill. (Yes, its a little odd).

Once CCP said the clothes you were wearing were stored in the pod, so they would be available at your destination.

Also CCP said they wanted players to actually use the clothes. If a expensive, but meaningless, item got destroyed on pod death, people would not wear it very often.

This all most likely would have been cleaned up if CCP finished incarna.

No clothing is destroyed upon podkill because Capsuleers are naked.





Im the exception. Im never naked in my pod. I wear an old AC/DC t-shirt and a pair of boxer shorts that say "Its all me" on the front.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

It would be pretty nice if there was a way to access any clothing items you own from anywhere rather than having to fly all the way back to wherever they're stored at just to put them on and change your portrait.

Like a sort of 'redeeming system' where we gain access to them wherever we're at, but the physical clothing items themselves remain at the station we 'redeemed' them at (for the purpose of trade and selling them.) The physical items would of course be tied to the station they were redeemed at until we pull them back out of the redeeming system.

I feel this would preserve the healthy amount of risk of moving them around for trade we currently have, but allow us to access them from everywhere. This would also make everything better line up with the lore we have for the clothing items feature.


TL;DR: Essentially a PLEX redeeming system for clothing items.

Did you ever wonder? There's the vampire in elaborate, Edwardian dinner clothing replete with crimson cravat. He turns into a BAT...the duds fall to the floor. He reappears as "himself" fully clothed... It's almost as good as being buried in a cheap suit and winding up in the hereafter wearing white robes. Is there a dressing room we're not being told about?

We must accommodate the idiocracy.
