How about some non-vanity "D'oh"-Items that are insanely expensive until you are really desperate?

- sitting in an station in 0.0 camped by enemies and there is no ammunition on the market there? 5$ for a handful of ammo.
- trapped in a WH-system without a scanner on board? 10-20$ for a bookmark of the next wormhole (without any guarantee where you might end or with a guarantee that it will be no other WH-system, but it might be deepest enemy 0.0).

Of course only until CCP gets their finances managed. And it should be so balanced that its no Win-button, but the glimpse of a chance. The items themselves should be really cheap on the market.

Since it is a service you'd likely have to pay for somewhere else...

Why not charge $1 a month extra per private corp message board hosted by CCP, a feature you already planned anyway?

This would be a great MT item or a gift for resubbing in EVE:

Quote:
So, how about a companion bot called "Hilmar", made by CCP Corp. It has no purpose other than to occassionally accept NIC* from you. Every once in awhile, it asks for a big jump in NIC and then makes for the nearest cliff and jumps off, wrecking itself while chatting about this is what you really want.

http://forums.perpetuum-online.com/topic/2828/idle-time-how-about-suggesting-a-fun-compensation-approach/

*NIC ist the Perpetuum-equivalent to ISK.

The idea is so hillarious I just wanted to share it with you. (Credits to Shadowfly) In CQ the Hilmar-bot could jump of the balcony shattering to pieces at the floor of the hangar.

Vanity

- Pirate Hat

- Pirate Eye-Patch

- Burning Cigar/Stogie

- A parrot to sit on your shoulder, randomly spouts out foul-mouthed one-liners

- Imperial European-style wet-navy uniforms circa 1800's


Non-Vanity

- Sound clips playing from your ship/gang/fleet when you engage an enemy, that will be heard by the other players near you (Wagner, Ride of the Valkyries).

- Interbus shipment, jump-clone service for your ships or items, does not apply to Caps/SCaps.

Pledge system for desired features:

CSM and CCP produce a short list of features (during the csm meetings?) that would not other wise be implemented and cost's them in AUR.

Players can then pledge AUR, when the predetermined level is met CCP commit to implementing it (the time scale for which will be outlined in the features information).

If the features times out (doesn't meet its estimated cost) pledged AUR is returned to the players.


This allows players to contribute their money to functionality they actually want. Sense of ownership anyone? This should be fairly straightforward to implement (pledge tokens possibly? - maybe even a small vanity item, 'I wanted T3 frigates but all I got was this lousy t-shirt' shirt?)

The trouble is most non-vanity you can think of does impact the game and gives advantage. At worst it tempts game operators to want to add difficulty in order to generate MT sales. This is not something I want to see.

How exactly did you manage to miss reading the TITLE of the thread you're replying to ? I am referring specifically to the "NON-advantage" part.
There are quite a few ideas in here already that fit that description (granted, a few break it, but still), so how exactly can you imply there aren't enough possibilities ?

I got three: Blueprint Customization Kit: Let people transfer the slots on the BP between the three powers, transfer the highs between guns and launchers, and transfer space between cargo and drone bays, as well as taking from CPU and adding to Power, or vice versa. Of course the laws of transmogrification apply, you can only change what's already there.

Sec Status Reset: reset the user's sec status back to 0, for those that are forced out of 00, and have to come back to empire. I'd limit the number allowed to 1 per character per month, to help prevent the station bombings.

Faction Sec Reset: Same as Sec Status Reset, but with the 4 empires. Sell in gallente, caldari, minmatar, and amarr.

Oh, no way any of those (particularly the first one...WTF?) wouldn't be COMPLETELY game-breaking or anything....

don't even if this is possible

I would like to be able to export my character to be used in SDK of Half Life 2, to allow me to use it for making movies

In the future be able to export models to be used in a program I can make movies or shorts similar to Clear Skies

a deploy-alble camera to be used for movie making or for spying on an area... Not real time that would be an advantage.

Missile Camera

Pets: Fedo or Slave hound - I can take with me in my ship

ability to make a unique item with its own unique id so I can used it as a flag for when I use bots in my "Bail Bonds and Missions" Store front

ability to make a location book mark - that produces a unique item that can compare with my Store Front bot so I can prove a person was at a location for a certain time or length of time.

slot machine to gamble aurum

Allow low end clothing BPCs to be available - only in certain station to allow people to make, move and market a clothing line. allowing them to add design features to the clothing for a little extra aurum. Like buttons, trim, stensel, accent colors or shading, emblems.
When dust come out I would like to be asking Dust players to pick up certain things from planet that can be used with in fashion.

I remember in the old Dungeons and dragons on line you would put several components in the Magic box creator and it would produce a random item. I think something similar with clothing could be done. Collect some random components, a little Aurum to pay the laborers, and produce a random formulated item. After a while some formulas once discovered would be retailed often but there would be others that would become unique. Not sure how the TTP would take effect and how it could break the realism of Incarna.

Give me a Robot side kick that will be programed for different themes.
- Boosting your Ego
- Pestimistic like the robot on Hich Hikers guide to the Galaxy
- Political Bot - for one of the Major races spouting off Political pro-aganda verbally - Amarr would be biggest seller
- Training bot for a profression that would spirt out helpful hints from a chosen occupations
- Robot that runs around the floor cleaning stuff off the floor.

Give me Items that make my space enjoyable
-Plants.
- Allow me to purchase a style of living in captain quarters. Ie all my captain quarters are a mess, half eaten space pizza, Edible Delights spilled on counter, Empty Quafe cans around underwear strun about. Just so my toon can live the life of a slob.
- or a room that is to dark, light, too pink.
- Allow me to buy Posters.
- allow certain theme track to be played in my room
-allow certain style of play on the Main TV screen Ie I am a bounty hunter and I subcrib to the bounty hunter Channel
- allow eve gate to show up on big tv screen or my mail.

One thing they could charge for would be InterBus transport.
Charge per jump multiplied by m, delivery within 30m per jump. (60 jumps == 32 hours)

Would help people living far away from empire, and allow eve to grow greatly.

But should be to expensive to use for mass hauling of stuff, eg you can get the fittings hauled but you should build the ship on site.

So, now that we have CCP's assurances that flat-out "game advantage" items will NOT be making it into EVE in the foreseeable future, feel free to drop even more ideas in here.

clothing packs from all races for a small AUR charge. At present items like Sunglasses, are available to Minmatarr but no Amarr.

So a cheap unlock to allow recustomisation of your Toon for wearing non-race specific clothing in Character Creator.

or you could just open it up for free :D

Couple have beat me to it..

I'd pay for engine trails to be back, I miss my first time playing EVE seeing the huge trail behind my Rifter leaving warp. :(

Others can see it, which gives a "value" to it without any performance benefit.

They should sell -Dev time- The nex could have a list of features players have been asking for, low-sec love, gallante love, faction warfare improvements, Expanded pos options, treaties, iterations on you know....spaceships,sleepers, etc (it would be a long list). They could estimate how much the dev time would cost and set that (or a percentage thereof) as a price, then keep a running tally of all AUR pledged to that project. If it reaches its goal (in say 6 mo) we see it in the next patch, if it doesn't players get their AUR back and its taken out of the store.


/signed

AUR for dev time would be awesome. CCP gets player approval, better economics, and possibly more funding. Attach this to the 'priority' list for Team BFF and we have a team whose purpose is to iterate working on what the players vote (with their AUR) to iterate on first. This doesn't need to take over an entire patch, but definitely should be considered for the portion of development dedicated to iteration.

Not sure how I feel about the refund clause though.

Yes, kill off the CQ and make the AUR items ship related...

Not sure how many ppl agree, but I hate the CQ, and now i can't even play on my spare pc cause of shader 3.0....

Concierge Item: Premium Hangar Access

Reduce standard hangar capacity to 400 stacks / 1 million m3. Add some levels of "premium hangar access" which will allow a pilot to purchase what is effectively a private "corporate hangar". Each "premium hangar" level will provide differing quantities of stacks/m3.

Allow automatic renewal by having the premium hangar "licence" operate as per POS charters. Keep a stack of premium hangar licences in that hangar so the subscription system can automatically renew the hangar access.

THIS, or at elast, if you hold SOV, you can have a system-wide jukebox that over-rides the music layers of everyone in system, so you can play whatever you want (within reason of course). though i know this will never happen, considering copyrights and whatnot, heck, cant even post music on youtube anymore these days.
