As for avatar stuff, Every so often I just splurge some isk on a plex, and buy things. (The monocle I got free, as a prize)

1. Yes



how do we convert AUR into PLEX?

I only see PLEX to AUR options or is that an option only in the ingame new eden store when kronos is live?

I misread his point. It has never been possible to convert AUR to PLEX. It is however still possible to convert PLEX to AUR.

We're looking at stuff like offering multiple character training and character re-sculpt through the store. Then possibly things like race, bloodline and gender change. We are looking into what else we could offer and how they would work, but worry not, there will be no 'gold ammo' :)


Very good. The Lack of 'gold ammo' is the important part.

You might also want to look into character renaming (of course with prominently noted "formerly known as" in employment history tab).

3- The prices are TOO DAMN HIGH FOR DESTRUCTIBLE STUFF (ship skins). EvilEvilEvil
I bet the use of skinned ship is very low even though people still have their free AUR in stock. Imagine when they won't have their free AUR anymore...


Those are prices for 10 run blueprints in the Dev Blog. The frigate skins, at 45 AUR, are equal to about 20 cents. The cruiser skins, in the screenshot, come out to about 100 AUR per ship (1000 for a 10 run blueprint). about 42 cents. I'm not sure if those are too expensive for easily destroyed ships.

The BC and BB skins, are getting a bit up there, but they're not too bad. I'm expecting there will be plenty available on the market as CCP is giving people who want to trade cash for isk a simple one or two step microtransaction option over buying and selling plex.

(They'll also be driving up the cost of manufacturing in Jita as paint jobs are being done in system).

Will you add a journal log for AUR again? If I'm not mistaken you removed it from the wallet (Because it's account wide, now). In my opinion it is totaly unnecessary to seperate the NES from the game. I'm very disappointed with the new style you choose. This disconnect is really silly X

Not necessarily a bad idea. Just require appropriate drone/blaster as BPC ingredient and keep the stats same, like in Police Pursuit Comet. "CreoDron Experimental Ogre" and "Roden Shipyards Experimental Heavy Blaster" have a nice sound to them Smile

20c per frigate hull is an order of magnitude too expensive. Look at it this way: I buy frigate and dessie hulls in bulk, maybe 100 at a time. It would cost $20 to skin the lot.

No chance.

If it cost $2 to skin the lot I wouldn't hesitate. But $20 on top of the +2b to fit the batch? Nope. The real irony is that CCP would certainly earn more from me if they were cheaper. I would easily lose ten times more than I currently am.

Wow, this is looking fantastic. Thanks guys for the work put into this (and the products in the NES!). Big smile

May I just mention, while I'm here, something that may not be directly in your area but is very related to this ...

Remember a while ago when you changed the creator to allow characters to wear a mid/outer layer top without an inner-layer? What do you think the chances are of doing something similar for bottoms/pants? I'm asking because these new tops coming in the expansion (and many of the existing ones), the mid/outer layer ones, would double wonderfully as dresses but they can only be worn when a pant-layer is also worn. Straight

Please .... pretty, pretty please fiddle with the layering rules again so we can use these new tops as dresses as well? Smile

This would add an enormous amount of versatility to the wardrobe selection you already have without actually having to go and produce specific new items.

Anyway thanks guys, really excited for this coming expansion. Cool



Well, if they can model arms as tattoos and cybernetic limbs, why not model pants/legs as stockings?

Maybe they even have a supply of leftover Carbon-compatible clothing from WoD... Lol

Q: Should we be worried? A: Nope. (...) Worry a lot if Fozzie, Masterplan, Rise, Veritas, Bettik, Ytterbium, Scarpia, Arrow, or even Greyscale leaves. Worry a little if Punkturis, karkur, SoniClover, Affinity, Goliath, or Xhagen leaves.

Exactly.

The main purpose for vanity items should be, to allow people to bling out a ship they want in a way that people will notice (Kill Mails being the obvious one in EVE), but for no stat improvement.

Hey, if it gets extra scratch into CCPs coffers, and is priced reasonably, you might even see more people use them.

(looking forward to the killmail of the blinged out cyno ship carrying PLEX ... and the Minmitar 'Duct Tape is all you need' Drone skins Shocked)

We have actually looked into this, but haven't decided anything yet. If we do end up introducing this,there would probably be some limit to how often you can do it, it would not be a way to escape your past and your previous names would be clearly displayed and searchable.

Oooo now there's a thought. It certainly would open up more options for Female Avatars, especially in the "showing leg" Department ... although I'm not sure how "Pod Friendly" they'd be Shocked (Shot of WoD Presentation showing female clothing)

This is a great idea! Not for this magnificently-named character, of course.

But the bittervet F&I inhabitants will have an absolute conniption. Can't wait.

That's actually a good point. There should be a few more things that cost far more than the 10,000 AUR peasant monocle Smile Just because.

If you are referring to the clothes available only to specific races in the character creator then that is a very good idea. I'll check if we can explore that further.


The New Eden Store is a very good place to introduce this. I would think that unlocking another bloodline's clothes (and hairstyles, and accessories) should be cheaper than an equivalent 'new' item, and perhaps unlocked in packs ("Gallente Pack") that includes all of the options from that race/bloodline.

NES is biggest thing I'm looking forward to with Kronos, can't wait for it to launch! And if it's going to be adding new clothes on a regular basis then OMG I need more money. Thank you! <3


The only thing that would be lacking then is a way to interact with other players in a way that shows off your outfits. Like, you know, WiS. Blink

Baby steps Attention

But yeah, stockings (and leg tattoos) are something that's often suggested. You should check out Commissar Kate's ideas and edits for stockings, pretty cool stuff.

Me, I just want to show a little leg on the avatar and IMO the new top would look amazing if it could be worn with no pant layer.

I'll save the hairstyles, gloves and hats plug for another thread. Lol
