Plex for skin extraction / transfer

Currently when i want to sell character i am losing also all skins that i injected into this.
Idea is to allow all skin extraction for the price of one plex.

If for some reasons putting them back to the market and relisting on market by some people will be issue, instead of extraction make it a transfer between your characters.

CCP will get additional income and people will get possibility to keep rare skins in possession.

dont you factor in skins when selling chars?

Calm down miner. As you pointed out, people think they can get away with stuff they would not in rl... Like for example illegal mining... - Ima Wreckyou*

If you are willing to sell them I guess it does but if you'd rather keep them, you are out of options.

Some skins are rare, some collections can be big.
Giving us possibility to move all skins from my character A to my character B will not harm any one.

If I'm correct, only the rarer skins will really effect the price.


+1 to the idea

It is not always about selling character - sometimes you suck all skills, and sell 5mil char, or biomass him.
Can you charge someone for a skin that this person will not be able to use in 3 years of skilling?
This is not the point.

My desire is to keep the skins on my characters - for the cost of plex.

Sounds reasonable to me.

CCP would have to think if people would re-buy skins for full price or if getting an additional ~20$ out of them to transfer the skin is more viable.

I like the basic idea but I would counter with a different way to deal with it. Instead of an extractor they could simply bind the skins to the account instead of the character and be done with it.

Idea is that you need to buy 3 skins if you want to have all characters to fly in colored ships, also my idea is to transfer to any characters you own.
CCP already links accounts by email, so this will not be any issue.
