You know, it's sad when I actually agree with some of the trolls.


Attention Players:

Eve changes all the ******* time. CCP is too broke to fix everything. NeX brings them a little extra dough to hire more programmers to fix the **** you care about.

It's really simple, so why the **** do so many players have a hard time grasping the ******* obvious?

I'm curious too. This is a really easy way for us to see just what the market really is for this.


I am 110% (+/- ~10%) behind releasing hundreds of already finished items. It just makes sense, particularly with this sane new pricing structure and more interesting distribution model. Many thumbs raised.

But, do be cautious of evaluating interest based on the current environment. Until we get a multi player WiS environment then people will not be as interested in customisation options when the only characters they will see much of are their own.

Having said that, I will be using some of that accrued aurum sat on my account shortly. I even took the aurum option back in the xmas gift promotion expecting this stuff to be coming out.

THANK YOU!

This is what people need to look at this like,

1. None of this costs ANY development time to activate in the client, it's already there.
2. The new price plan for NEX items is a 100% better then the old one.
3. No this isn't the end of Eve Online, grow up.
4. No, this does NOT equate with "We buy ships off NEX now" you morons, see above and grow up.
5. Yes, some people do actually want to see more avatar based content, and not all of them are new. Myself included, being over 6 years old in Eve is one of those people.
6. Multiple avenues to clothing, NEX, Loot, LP Rewards, is a brilliant approach.
7. No this isn't Barby in Space, or Second Life Eve Edition, stop being a child and a troll.

Handing out money to people in exchange of bytes is a tricky thing to do even if we didn't belonged to a species were chaining your fellows to a computer to farm e-money for you is deemed something ordinary.


Several other games do it since years, do you think CCP who invented the most realistic economy are unable to put said economy into practice?

Also, it's not CCP "handing" money, it's players who lose at markets vs those who win.

Good to hear all the suggestions coming in. For those in doubt, the clothes shown in the blog are those you can get in the Factional Warfare Loyalty Point store for LPs+ISK. As mentioned in the blog, we will also be introducing clothing as loot drops in the near future.

So, people will be able to get some interesting clothing items without having to spend anything over and above their subscription.

Those who want to, will be able to spend to buy some other items from the Nex store. It's all about choice which isn't something we did in the past but we are doing now. You can choose to be involved or not. Each to their own. Live and let live Big smile

The addition of the FW clothing is definately a step in the right direction, but why is CCP so determined to water down the sandbox rather than adding more to it? Is it really just about money to the point where CCP would rather add magically appearing one off shinies rather than adding additional gameplay elements to EVE via in-game mechanics?

If CCP is so hellbent on adding MT into EVE then at least make the clothing items BPO's and produced through the game mechanics where it shows you at least care about keeping the integrity of the sandbox.

Like the FW ones, give clothing some meaning in EVE, and they should all be destructable.


It's easy.
Make a BPO that requires PI materials + Aurum to produce stuff.

Microtransactions and EvE style in a nutshell. And you solve both the issue of many PI materials having no use and implementing an EvE mechanic with MTs.

Of course it'd be cool to also be able to deconstruct those dressings and retrieve the PI and aurum out of them and even to re-convert said Aurum into RL cash again.

Still need better way for OTHER people TO SEE what you are wearing before your sales will take off.
Current portrait does not show much of clothing.

Keeping minimal CPU use in mind for the present

How about character info options to see full body views? Or attach full body views to EVEmail?

Hmmm...how about ways to snap poses in your Captains' Quarters?
Show not only new clothes but also all your trophies and future collectibles. Replacing the standard portrait backgrounds with snapshots in personalized Captain Quarters would be cool way to distinguish devoted career EVE pilots from noobs.

*** ROFLMAO - attach full body poses to Killmail !!! ***

You need to include a few foreground props for maximum effects. Like cracked helmet or shattered console for victor to rest a foot upon. I suppose the victim could be allowed their own small pose (probably pose pointing to suggest a kiss my arse)


Heh I guess you could sell trophy items to pose with in LP store and then let people place the trophies in Captain's quarters.

For aurum fee you could have EVE fill in a little trophy plaque with killmail info: victim name, ship type, and date. Heck you could even extend that to faction war rank promotion plaques or certain really difficult missions. Trophy stuff like real career soldiers might collect. But keep in mind there has to be a way to pose pictures featuring clothing or collectables in background.

those other games have player designed stuff, ccp hopefully will never allow player designed stuff

also wasn't there some theory can't remember exactly that rmt income should never exceed the minimum wage of rl jobs, and that minimum wage is even lower in certain countries like china
because if they can make more money with computer games bad things happen to those games.

also i heard diablo 3 RMAH is doing wonderful things to the game.

Oh stop it. They are working on ship balancing and have had these clothes done for months. Besides it is not just and internet spaceship game. It is a sandbox which has spaceships and planets and stations and space people who don't want to go naked.


Oh yes. That's why the cloths coming in august and few frigs will come with winter patch.


My mistake, cloths coming in june not in august.


Not your only mistake. Rebalanced ships start being released in August.

That would be when the re-balancing work on the first batch (of what will likely be 3 releases) is completed, just like the clothing... which is already completed....

Do you begin to notice a pattern yet? Blink

Sure. But there is very poor variety of clothes at the moment, so it's a content that should be improved.

This char doesn't have any of the NeX items because i didn't find anything that suits her better :)

in 2007 i've thought it's a sci-fi simulator, not an "e-sports" game. I'm not a teenager, how would i like it much?

i think the problem with the choise in clothes atm is that its to normal dress shirts and dres slacks are fine but what happend to all the cool combat suits we used to have via caldari and such i hope when you plan to open the door you will have more viraity in clothes and stuf that ads flair such as
a corp/aliance armband with logs on them
a top hat!
hats in general wold be nice
some said lab coats but cool ones from the future and in black for the mad t3 scientist
some cool dust like suits if i had one of those now i could wis now as i would not be concerned about the fact that the atmosphere is not sutibel for my consumption!
some cyborgish stuff via implants
gloves cause i have ocd and every thing in station is nasty dirty!Shocked

I can not for the life of me fathom why the USD and EUR price is the same too, OK the GBP is down a bit but still at today's rates $14.99 = €11.86 / £9.54. Is there that much profit needed to be made???

What we're actually doing is removing both hisec and PvP from the game entirely. It seems like the fairest way to solve this problem. - CCP Grayscale  - CCP troll BEST troll <3
