And another week past due.

You know, I'm a web developer. If I promised a client something, and we are ALL paying clients, and not only failed to deliver, but failed to even give an explanation, or respond in any way about it.. I wouldn't still have a job.

It really pisses me off. a CCP Dev is not just someone in your corp, playing in their free time, they miss a deadline so be it. He's a paid employee, who stated something to the clients, then didn't follow though, and we are now a MONTH over due without so much as single update. Either he doesn't care, or he can't deliver, either way he shouldn't of made the assurance, and should of updated us.

I don't know about nor can I comment on any prospective dev blog. I also can't share specifics as to the nature of our plans. However, here's some information that may help put some of this in context.

EVE's art and graphics team (Team TriLambda) is now working on some changes to the technical underpinnings of ship SKINs to enable improvements to the feature. I mentioned in my last message that this work was delayed by a few weeks due to unrelated issues with the Carnyx release which came out on Tuesday. It is currently a top priority for Team TriLambda to complete this work.

Once some of these technical changes happen, Team Size Matters, which owns the SKINs feature, has some work to do to take advantage of them. I would expect that any promised dev blog would probably want to discuss their specific plans, with pictures, and this would require that everything on the graphics side is finished and ready to go.

I'm truly sorry that this work was delayed, and is taking longer than you (or we) would have liked. However, it's important to us to implement the resulting changes robustly and correctly.


Make this happen

Hey CCP Darwin.

If there are in fact Technical reasons why the blog hasn't been posted, then my rant remains true, there should have been an update made with an explanation WHY. If I run into Technical issues in a project, I update the client before the delivery date. I don't just blow the date and say nothing, at all, for a Month.

But I personally don't see why Technical issues should affect a blog that should of, at least from most of the questions posted, be far more generic. We don't want dates for XYZ. We want an overview of the general direction for Skins. We want an explanation for the insane pricing of many of the Skins. We want to know if we are going to have skins limited only to their race, or if we will be able to see Quafe Paladins, and Interbus Avatars.

*edit*
I may be harping on this issue.. but why not, since we haven't got any feedback on it. A proper explanation for a delay 3 weeks ago, or just answering some of the general questions, would have put this to bed ages ago. But to make a promise, fail to deliver, AND fail to respond really irks me given I'm a paying customer. Video Games, web development, hell working at a Supermarket, none of them should tolerate it.

I don't think a single player cares that the ishukonoeneon skin on unintended ships doesn't look like an ishkasdfuakone skin.

I think what they care about is having variety in their ships.

Yup.

Also Falcon said CCP THOMAS the Monetization dude was at the meeting one month ago.
So why is there no talk of monetization and price structure in the devblog.

He was at the meeting..... tell us about that part

Just saying, I would pay an irresponsible amount of money for SKINs that work on any ship. Just saying.
