They can be destroyed if they are in your ship cargohold.

Once CCP said the clothes you were wearing were stored in the pod, so they would be available at your destination.

Also CCP said they wanted players to actually use the clothes. If a expensive, but meaningless, item got destroyed on pod death, people would not wear it very often.

This all most likely would have been cleaned up if CCP finished incarna.


That does make some sense, but there you have destroyed pod and clothes with it, but you can't say, you destroyed the right to get that cloth for free in cloning station.

That means clothes are in every cloning station and they are very common. So common, I could forget the clothes in pod and I would get it in another station. I have the right to get it.
Actual clothing item in Tranquility is like a license for using these clothes, you can sell those licenses to other capsulers, cant copy them, and they still can be destroyed with other items, when not actually active on your clone.

I believe there are clothes dispensers with database of every capsuleer in every station.

Why am I laughing so much at this?

Don't think of it that you've purchased the clothes themselves, but rather that you've purchased a license to replicate those clothes at any station's replication systems. It doesn't matter where you're at, whether you have the clothes on your ship or if you just got home via slow-travel in a pod: you can use your digital license (transferred on the same FTL systems that send our consciousness back) to create a new set instantly.

It's also why you can't simply sell a single article of clothing while keeping another. You aren't selling the clothes themselves (as the clothes are extremely cheap, by Capsuleer standards), but you're selling the license to replicate them into perpetuity, so long as you hold that license.

I'm wondering if anyones decided to attmpt getting kinky with another in a pod. Course THAT wouldn't work. Might be able to smuggle bodies though.

I assume getting naughty in VR would be a lot more plausible, kinda like the matrix. Although with all that exists on the internet I can't see everyone doing things the normal way whilst in virtual reality.

I'm going to stop talking now.

Oh, I perfectly understand, Hal Morsh — a mission like this requires courage, skill, and heroism… qualities you are clearly lacking. Have you forgotten you're one of the bloody immortals!?

No, no..... keep going. I just brought my bottle of lotion over to my desk.

Clothing is essentially an unlimited lifetime licence to supply them on demand at any station in new Eden as long as they are shown as being worn in your character profile. That's why they cost so much isk.

stick them in your hold though and they will drop like any other type of cargo.

No, but if you are carrying them as items, they will be lost.

My 'Silvershore' Greatcoat is worth more than any ship I've ever owned, including cargo.

If clothing was destructible, there would be less incentive to buy Aurum to purchase clothing.

I wish ship skins were treated the same as clothing.

I'd pay dearly to guarantee that every time I get a noob ship it was in Angel or serpentis colours etc.
