What we probably dont know is the teen player-base is growing to the point where CCP doesn't want to upset parents.

If parents haven't figured out how to deal with this well before the teen years they are fail as parents and deserve what ever they get.

Seriously the second thing most human beings see in their life is a boob and the first is the other part of the anatomy everyone gets all wierded out about.

Boobs are life. They are what makes us mammals, the fact that they are prominent on the chest is unique to humans. They create friggin food for crying out loud they are friggin miraculous.

Just more neo-puritanism because the religious right is ****ed off that they've lost the culture war. I'm disapointed in CCP for capitulating to such nonsense. It's a cruel harsh universe but keep your shirts on.

A reply from CCP on this issue would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath.

checker, I think you are thinking more of the Victorians than the puritans. The puritans were modest and didn't show things off, however it was the victorians who were more aggressive about it.

Likewise the goal of this thread isn't to be about anti religious right rants... being against improper or excessive sexuality has its place. Plus if you want to split hairs, there's just as many on the left (feminists) who'd hate something like this as people on the right.

My thoughts on the matter are:
1. Technically everything that has to be covered is, so it's not full nudity. Now it might be tasteless, trashy, ****ty, or sexy depending on your point of view, however no female nipples, no genitals = not nudity.

2. All of the avatars I've seen are already wearing a jacket; they've just got the front open. So they are mostly clothed and it's a little bit more about cleavage than nudity. Plus at least a few of the avatars I've seen had more of a tough chick look to them than a sexy one.

3. In the right/wrong pose, a woman with a DDD cup and a tight shirt is just as good/bad as cleavage. So if there were more prudish interests at stake here, why not keep every female PC a B cup? That actually might keep women who don't like PCs with big busts for leaving the game... ie it's less offensive to them.

4. What's the point of letting us see characters in their undies to begin with only to tell us a screen or two later: don't forget to put your shirt on? I mean CCP could have started everyone off in a bodysuit (and those things can be kinda sexy too) or something and they've had plenty of time before now to think about this.

As someone who's done QA work before, this one kinda bugs me the most. To me it means decisions are either based on whimsy or CCP doesn't have their act together in some fashion or another. What's going on up there? If this was a problem, why did it make it all the way to release?

4a. I know the icons are small, but why are there half naked strippers/prostitutes in the game as things you can move around? I mean seriously. If you want to go a prudish route that's fine, but at least get rid of the half naked hookers in the process. Why should I as a player have to face this sudden mea culpa that doesn't fit with other things I've seen?

It just seems really weird to me. Some people might not like a little cleavage, but it's hardly the worst game out there in terms of clothing and there are other things in EVE I'd consider worse. Plus I can't make any sort of rhyme or reason out of it and I'm left scratching my head.

It such a minor thing, but it hints about CCP's vision for a younger player base.

Even in a kiddy game like WOW you can walk around in your underwear. But you can't in Eve?

Oh no, hired goons bumping treads with "counter support". Guess I should support this one then.
Hmm, why the heck would anyone bump a thread he doesn't support? Neutral

If they make it rated m this game will probly become over populated with 5 year olds who think we should add space elves or something. Also on that note please make it so we dont have to wear pants.

This does seem a bit ridiculous with all the killing and slave taking, stealing, drugs and prostitutes in the game. The current state that some avatars seem to exist in where they have at least one layer on their top and bottom seems sufficient to me.

Let's hope this petition gets loud enough and heard by the right people.

CCP is going to drive away more of the player base that is of the right age to play this game than the people that are young enough to warrant protecting with these silly and extreme messures.

Eve is too unforgiving a game to be casualized down for the younger crowd.
