Senior Producer CCP Unifex is ready with an update about new clothes, an update which was requested by quite some people. He also has news on how to purchase Aurum in an alternative way so that you have more options besides using only PLEX to get AUR.

Read all about CCP Unifex' newest blog here.

Your feedback is as always welcome.

I bet 50p someone's gonna assume this is the end of the world on page 1 of this thread.

I have a specific comb for my beard.

A reasonable price point for clothing, and loot drops and FW LP clothing?

No development time to make said clothes?

Seems like the only thing missing is a miniskirt...

Makes sense, I know a number of people frustrated at the lack of expansion in clothing, and couldn't understand why you were holding back on already existing assets. Since you've already made the investment (and taken the firestorm last year) this should be welcomed by everyone, and perhaps show that a small steady investment in frilly bits to prance around in will be worthwhile in the long run.

The new (more sensible) pricepoints look great too, even I may be persuaded to part with some of that free AUR if I like the look of somethingBig smile

I like the idea of clothes as rewards for LP and stuff, that's cool. I'm still against microtransactions in a full priced subscription game though personally, atlhough I can understand wanting to recoup something from the unused assets.

I think it'd be a better show of faith if the aurum costs were removed altogether though personally.

Is aurum ever going to be transferable?

I'd be curious to know if there's actually a market for this stuff.

Personally I still have that free 2000 aurom on each of my accounts, and just blocked it out like it doesn't even exist.

Whatever "dev" it was that removed the pod squish sound probably never even logged into the game.

Well, I am kinda sad you guys have to go to such lengths to make it clear this stuff doesn't take away from FiS, but oh well.

It looks cool, and I am all for more clothes for when WiS finally unlocks THE DOOR

Sounds like we're entering the definition of a MICRO-transaction with the new pricing. It definitely makes sense to keep existing AUR prices on existing items, and simply release cheaper variants. It doesn't devalue their spending, which you'd otherwise pretty much have to refund (or face anger/ire/etc.) and does leave kind of a "designer tier" in place. While I bet some of the cheap ones look better, some may want to use the expensive ones just as a status symbol.

I also think that big fleet commander coat, for example, makes a great high value item for people like Alliance leaders and such.

New purchase options are great, alternative methods of getting stuff is great. (I don't do FW, but that's a great place to release them.) Drops for some will be awesome as well.

Transferable AUR is a must, IMHO, at least by the time we get DUST out.

Oh looting clothing is a fantastic idea. Will definitely add flavor to finding the overseer's clothes not just his OPE. Whoever had it please tell him to post on forum so I can "like" him .

Way to go CCP, a very reasonable approach to selling in game items. Also applaud you on the cash fro Aurum addition. Now, give us ability to buy ship skins and all will be grand.

As long as the work is already done, and the focus is *still* on spaceships, then... Why not? I mean, I wouldn't buy them, but if there's a market/playerbase for clothes, why not expanding our collective horizon?

Thank you.
