Shorts, actual dresses (not this Structure crap, but actual dresses with physics draping like the Amarr robes. Speaking of, Amarr robes for women please), gloves, hats, stockings, slacks (what the Poise pants could have been if they weren't skin-tight at the ankles...), ties, suits, actual racial clothing inspired from the old creator like head pieces, masks, uh, plastic...

So much that can be done with this. And people will pay, so there's no reason for CCP not to. Take advantage of our vanity, CCP. We won't mind.

question...

the pricepoint (750 AUR) for the Women's 'Sterling' Dress Blouse (Graphite) and the (Red Satin) are a bit below the LP + ISK cost of acquiring them from their faction corporations. (a lot below. to convince someone to redeem their LP for one of these blouses takes 300M ISK +)

also, I was hoping to see the (Matte Black) available... will you add the Matte versions of the sterling dress blouse?

edit: ...please

I don't like the removal of aurum tokens, as that means ISK can no longer be converted.

I also think the prices for ship skins is a bit steep, as they are destructible. If you want to sell LOTS, make them more affordable!

I'm not sure you meant to put the Sterling line of blouses in competition with the LP stores...

I think you're making a mistake by offering the items that already have a 'spawn point' in the faction LP stores (repeat link)

you sure you didn't mean to offer the completely new/ unavailable sterling tops instead....?

these are:

Women's 'Sterling' Dress Blouse (green satin)
Women's 'Sterling' Dress Blouse (matte black)
Women's 'Sterling' Dress Blouse (matte blue)
Women's 'Sterling' Dress Blouse (matte olive)
Women's 'Sterling' Dress Blouse (orange satin)

all the men's are currently spawned elsewhere, including the NEX store

ISK can still be converted to AURUM. Removing the tokens means you have to go by way of ISK -> PLEX -> AURUM.

Sorry, I'm noticing new things..

you've removed the current NEX 'Sterling' offerings with the exception of the Women's 'Sterling' Dress Blouse (Black Leather) and Men's 'Sterling' Dress Shirt (Navy)... and replaced them with the items available in the LP stores.

why?

There are currently 82 items avaliable in the NEX store, does this mean that some items are being removed? If so, will they all be re-released in the near future?

The store also needs dresses.... what else am I going to wear planetside? Big smile

Prices are still too high imo. $2 for a (destructable) BS skin? Nuts. If the skin is non-destructable, then I might have considered it.
For these sort of destructable things, nothing more than cents for the cosmetic service I'm afraid.

Some of us have a habit of losing ships. Oops Lots of them!

I'd like a confirmation, please:

With the release of the New Eden Store, we will stop selling Aurum Tokens and start selling Aurum directly instead. Existing Aurum Tokens can still be redeemed for Aurum – we will just stop selling new ones.


Does this mean that AUR can not be sold directly on market any more?

The only way to sell AUR directly on the market has been to sell AUR tokens.

It seems you would need to buy items and sell them on market to convert AUR to ISK.

It kind of sucks that this change wasn't announced until today. I am consolidating some accounts and have AUR on affected characters, and it looks like the AUR will now be abandoned on the accounts. It's too late to move the characters early (was planning on doing it Wednesday when the accounts are about to expire) due to corp roles not dropping for 24 hours. Is there any way for me to move the AUR between accounts? Why wasn't this announced earlier when it would be possible to do something about it (move early)?

Will only be possible now through selling plexes, or as Rain said, buying the item and selling the item on the market.

Deasy, the scope of the items available wasn't announced, but the AUR / Account change has been known for quite some time. I'm in the same boat, and am making a transfer involving AUR on a character.

no it's not possible to make the Kronos cutoff with a 24 hour roles cooldown -and- 10 hour transfer after this latest dev blog... but the AUR-> account change remains unchanged and the market items is merely an incentive.

*Shrug* I read through the entire patch notes when they were released and somehow missed this. And on reread, this is why:
Quote:
Aurum has been moved from character wallets to a new store wallet which can be found in the new store.
The AUR balance in character wallets will no longer be displayed.

That's quite a bit less explicit than was stated here.

How about adding neural remaps to the store?
