It is good to see the new clothes for our avatars because it gives us a little bit of hope of seeing someone else's avatar interacting with ours at some point in time. The clothes in their current form are rather pointless. Dont take me wrong: I still hope that will change one day, but I am losing that hope.

There is one more nitpick there though: The Amarr, the Caldari, the Gallente and the Minmatar all supposed to have their own cultures, yet they all dress the same uniform when they go to war - just in different color. Apparently in EVE all the militia uniforms are manufactured by the same Caldari corporation; the corporation just dyes the same uniform to different colors and sells them to all militias. I guess they make a killing in uniform sales. Only the Caldari are smart enough to do so. Blink

tldr: Different color does not culture make.

Now I'm certainly not impartial here (just look at the picture to the left), but there's another question. If they decided that red/gold executor is not a unique item, and it's for sale now, then why the green/gold male counterpart is not? Or are they planning to release that later, too?

Female pants for 100 aur are kind of worthless now despite their price 3900 AUR before. Same for knee boots.

Red/gold coats turned out to be very profitable to resell for 150-300m (their aurum price is around 70mil) - during few minutes after DT when yesterday buying orders were still available. Thanks for 10-digit income I've made instantly in Jita and Amarr!

May we have 500 AUR monocle now? It will be really fun to see all the snobs' tears.

EDIT: initial shock ended, purchased almost all items via marketplace for pennies - including those I don't like (black/white dress). Question is - moar?

In the dark years between 2006 - 2011 we had the dubious joy of seeing Devs actively cheating and CCP abusing it's player base. I'm very sad to see this abuse start over again with the expansion of the microtransaction feature.

Sorry to say, but im just disgusted with CCP claiming a "null-cost" implementation. It's a lie. CCP has never been very good liars. Plese stop. Try some dignity for once. Tell us the truth: You Will Force This On The Player Base Regardless Of The Consequences. FiS is a thing of the past. As soon as Dust514 hit's the air active development of Eve FiS wil stop.





We know CCP can do some weird things or make promises they can,t hold up .
But i think they are not that dumb to remove too much resources from the spacepart of this game
they even hold back promised blogs to satisfy the only FIS players

I don't see where you can buy AUR for 4.99 USD have not been able to figure it out.

Why are you not in Red? Your corp should buy all of its members a Red Shirt.

I don't think there was much isk left over for new clothes, it all went to breast augmentation first. Apparently "juggs" is the official uniform.

So why couldn't you release some of the 200 items instead of throwing clothing with already established values onto the nex for peanuts.

When are the blue / red quafe shirts and green/gold jacket going to be on the nex for 500aur?

Well, that's fine, i guess... out of 31 female apparel items I had picked on Sisi, 2 of them made it into the NEx store, now the most glorified garage sale in New Eden. What?

I guess that I will have to wait for Hans to get all those items i miss and buy them from him at a friend's price, right? Because, the other 100+ items have been seeded at FW LP stores, right? Question

What is intriguing me most is how they do expect that people will buy AUR with RL cash to get any of the 13 (thirteen) new items. It's just like when they expected that people would spend 80 bucks on a monocle. "Coherence" is the name of the game i see here.

Coherence to never get it right, I mean, giving clothes to people who doesn't gives a rat's ass of them (first the nullsec uberplayers, now the FW pewpewers) and essentially dismissing WiS people.

Come on, CCP. Tell us it's a prank. Tell us this is why you have handed us 13 out of 100+ female apparel items and they don't even match each other... Blink

Indah, it's even worse than that.

Was able to track down one of those white/black dresses that had been put up for sale in the market. Tried it on, and it's one of the most unflattering pieces of clothing I've seen, in game OR RL.

If you didn't originally choose the slimmest possible body type, it'll make your ass look HUGE. The hip pockets balloon out like fanny packs. If I'd have tried it on in real life, I'd have burst into tears.

So, not only did they release fewer pieces than they have backlogged, but some of the pieces they did let out are fugly.

I almost wonder if there were any female designers on staff when these skins were created.

Thank you Team Avatar!

Given the development plan of Flying-in-Space this year, drip feeding us pre-made items is appreciated! Its good to see that the flame is being kept alive. In general cloths for men are styled great but i wish there was more feminine clothing for girl avatars.

If we have to wait years for more station environments then i hope the following is being considered:


  • Station interiors (maps) should reflect the dimensions of the station's exterior. This is important! Otherwise we're just inside a bunch of rooms with no relevance to the station we just flew too. I worry about this, i know it would be much easier technically and less labor intensive to just ignore the fact.

  • WiS environments live on separate servers to FiS. This was the reason given (many years ago) why windows will not be possible for stations, effectively connecting WiS to FiS. This is very disappointing and a missed opportunity. Pushing beyond the industry benchmarks for immersion will not be achieved.

  • Ship environments where you have a bridge (with windows) that connect to other rooms (using a map layout reflects the exterior) like engineering, officers mess, subsystems, etc.


End of the day, its CCP's business to deliver the highest immersion possible. We should feel that we're walking around a station, that's floating in space orbiting a moon. Eve needs to stay ahead.


but ill probably still play if they can do it ha :)

Yeah I really wanted some more option in the NEX store. Unlike many others I was underpowered by the variety of items.

I will say the dev's said they would see how this goes and release more. So WAITING...patiently.

Oh one more thing...


SUGGESTION FOR DEVS - Can we CHANGE OUR CLOTHES but NOT have to change our Portrait????

This WOULD BE AWESOME.

I am tired of having to reposition my toon and mandatorily have to take another picture. This one is fine for what people will come to see. My clothes on the other hand reflect my mood or whatever. Sort of like a drivers license picture...it doesn't change because I changed my clothes nor do I have to retake my picture.

I just want to say a warm "thank you" to CCP for putting the noble looking black&gold shirt into the NEX store for just 500 AUR.

I guess the reason is that those items never had an AUR price.

It would be nice to hear the reasoning from CCP though.

Whatever. I've grown tired of mining so will shut down this account in a couple of days now that there's no point to wait for CCP.

Not a bad option to have if possible, but you do realize you don't have to change position after changing clothes. Just hit finalize or, if you want to be careful, snap a pic first and then finalize. Your pic will look identical except for the clothing change.

I did that once only to find in the new portrait my eyes were closed.

Yeah, that's why I don't do anything but snap a pic, check it, and finalize... although I thought they fixed the eyes closed thing in the final pictures.
