I think the big 'TV'-screen in our CQ has a lot of potential in that respect.

- commercials for your corp/alliance shown to everyone or per region
- * and the option to make the screen free of said commercials

- special content channels you can subscribe to
- * advanced trade info (not getting too specific here, MD forum can work this one out)
- * regional 'breaking news' maybe showing large fleet movements and such

Just to get a few ideas out there.

I guess the advantage-granting part can be argued with these, but I'd not have a problem with stuff not affecting spaceships or characters.

This is a very difficult question because vast majority of useful addons and services would have simply been available to everyone with a patch in the past. Vanity stuff is easy but Incarna needs MASSIVE amount of content and coding + multiplayer before it really starts pulling in money (just is my guess anyway).

I`m sure they will try selling standing slots, fitting slots and so forth but that comes with temptation of limiting "non-premium" user accessibility. I think they already limited corp fittings to 50?

Jump clones without standings?

"Monocle Beam!" monocle in several colors that shoot's pretty (harmless) lasers at people in stations!

Personally, I'd pay several freakin' billion ISK on PLEX to get my hands on a ratty red sofa from clear skies. Hell, you could probably price that thing at ten monocles worth and I'd buy the **** out of it.

I want that sofa on my bridge.

Yeah, if CCP needs cash they could ask the players for it this way.

First though - I would never resubscribe if any "non-vanity" item were implemented.

However, I'm totally fine with vanity items.

Some I might consider buying:
  1. Auction off system names (i.e., rename Oursulaert to "Thaya-rens Ostus Megaplex)

  2. a "better" and "faster" autopilot multiple destination optimizer

  3. a random bookmark generator (i.e., safespots without doing the stupid safespot work) with 10 charges

  4. Maybe some stupid stuff to put on a POS. Like a bar. Different structures.

  5. Sell alliance/corps logos

  6. BPCs for 'vanity' (i.e., useless) ships that look nice. I'm thinking of the rigged sailship shuttle that was given out once. Something useless, but that looks nice... i.e., make it SLOWER than a shuttle...but it LOOKS awesome.

  7. A "forever" clone - i.e., one that doesn't need updating

  8. NPC seeded skillbooks (i.e., delivered to your 0.0 hangar)



Just sorta thinking of some ideas for CCP to make money. Look - I'm perfectly fine with CCP getting more money. What I'm NOT fine with is CCP ruining the best MMO of all time - which 'non-vanity' items for AUR would certainly cause to happen.

make the storeBPC only!


This is how it should work.

I have a list of items in the store all of them are bpc's (each bpc has 5 runs on it)

lets say this time i pick monocole so i drop $60 bones and get the bpc...

i then have a list of ruff materials that i need to make the awesome monocles...

so i jump in my hauler go over the the planet and start making the base materials i need...

once i have the materials i then go back to the station and open industry and start a run cycle to construct the monocles...

I can then sell this item on contract or market or my store(when i get one) for ISK...

Do MT this way and i dont think people will have a problem with it...

make the arum store BPC onlyTwisted EvilTwisted EvilTwisted Evil

Personally i would want my store to be a "west cost choppers" where i install awesome engine trails and paint jobs...

The option to pay for a slot on a station to run a business from, such as a bar.

Said business would have to have in game services available that the business owner could charge ISK for.

Your one time fee, or even monthly rental fee, could provide you with a large revenue stream in game if you run your business correctly.

  • Ship skins.

  • Replacement Ship Models.

  • SHIPS. Yes I said it, put some ships in there. I'm talking about the primae, the echelon, the zephyr and a host of other new ships that at most are niche items or variations of what already exists normally in game. Nothing better than existing items.

  • Specialty Rig modules. Every ship gets a _single_ new rig slot that only these modules can fit in. Nothing large, at most 5% but could range from 1% to 5% introducing dozens and dozens of things to select from.

  • Camera drone pets. Both out of ship and the avatar kind.

  • Lots more cloths.

  • CQ items. Beds, chairs, cabinets, trinkets, etc.

  • Ship interiors. Part of Incarna should be that instead of going to my captains quarters I instead go inside my ship. Which means that there needs to be an option of where I go when I dock. So yes to all the whiners out there, give us a dropdown setting that gives us the ability to select CQ, ship interior, and of course the super lame spinny ship interior.

  • Lower prices. Like way lower, monocles should cost <$10.

  • Also all of it needs to be destructible. Which means that I need to be able to STORE avatar based items when i don't want to use them or have them get destroyed when I go out in my ship.

Features and Ideas forum?

eh, I'll join in

Incarna style corp hangar for aurum (it doesn't affect gameplay, purely visual)
when the "promenade" comes out shops should be rented for aurum as well

Both ideas that will probably be unpopular but I don't think people will quit over it.

For an obscene amount of AUR, an ability to rename 0.0 system names.
Ultimate exercise in vanity on alliance/corp level.

would be awesome to have a Ded Moroz constellation in space.

Seems obvious but...

Design a little ingame applet that gives you a selections of animated backgrounds and graphics, text (including your corporation and alliance name), and lets you create a script with them for a 10 second ad to be played on CQ screens, promenade screens, and in game billboards. Charge $1 a day for them to be broadcast in the region, $5 a day for them to be broadcast randomly universe-wide.


This and the "advertise on in game billboard's" idea are both win. I'd definitely purchase both.

* I'd say tamagotchi like virtual pets/robots for stations, with options to bring them onboard starships and have them on the interface to play with when you're running boring tasks.

* Failing that, I'd settle for an exotic dancer of my own to play with .... ahem!

* My own ship computer who doesn't sound like Aura. Hearing her voice bazillion times "Warp drive active!" is affecting my piloting skills.

* Practise ammo ala snowball launchers to sow mayhem and discord to unsuspecting noobs. Twisted Evil

They could probably do this for nullsec systems once you hold sov for a certain amount of time. Would need to be names that at least somewhat fit into lore imo, i.e. a review process.

Maybe make that an auto-update feature, you still pay for the clone but dont have to worry about updating if you get podded.

Another idea - we all enjoyed shooting statues during the protests. How about let us "buy" and place these statues by NPC/player stations? The more popular the system, the more expensive the statue.

For example a "greek-god-like" statue of Ded Moroz in Jita worth 250 monocles. Yes, i am that sexy.

I have lots of ideas, wild and banal, but before if I know if they have any value, I need to understand why is PLEX not already being consumed?

If you can generate more passive (or almost passive) income with an alt in 30 days than the value of the PLEX, shouldn't you online an alt and cash in that income to buy another PLEX + profit? Shouldn't that provide the PLEX market with a natural value and a steady consumption of any surplus that accumulates?

pay per view **** (live web-cam girls are extremely popular) on the screen in cq

aura gambling sites that can be accessed in the common areas of stations

remove in game web browser and attach it to screen in cq; charge aura for that product

heh I don't know my enthusiasm to help a company that I thought was an independent adventurous client orientated game producer that turns out to think its clients are just cash cows is pretty low.

Yeah that's a good one. Seriously CCP hasn't been creative.

People would buy all sorts of crap to pimp their sov systems. A huge monument to all my lost Drakes out in front of the station undock would be nice.

How does one define a NON-vanity and also NON-advantage item/service? Wouldn't non-vanity mean it had some sort of advantage?

On a serious note they simply could have risen the sub fee say 20-25%, simple, straight forward, still free expansions.. I would simply do that.

On a game for which people were already boo-hoo-ing about it being a bit to expensive ?
Raise the sub cost 25%, and you might lose 20% of the userbase, and it's a wash.
Nah, it has to be cash voluntarily given.

Nothing should be added. PERIOD. This is only an attempt to get people to accept this shop. Once CCP thinks people have accepted the shop they will bring in the battering ram on your ass. The items that start showing up will astound you. You will say but.... but... they said they would never do this.

They know they will be doing this. They will not comment on it. They know any comment will bite them in the ass later.

Sad sad day, do not be fooled.

Aurum purchased 3D modeled Awards/Medals that you could purchase and give to Corp/Alliance members. These could then be placed inside the Aurum purchased Corp/Alliance hangout area and displayed in a trophy case.

No actual gameplay is affected. Purchases are completely optional. CCP gets more money.

"Vanity" means it has no (additional) use (compared to the base model) other than looking different, basically a status symbol, or, as some might call it, "expression of personality" (lol).
A piece of clothing for your avatar is a vanity item. A different paintjob for a ship is a vanity item.

A non-vanity item doesn't necessarily need to grant an advantage.
It just needs to be DIFFERENT in functionality compared to what's already available, or provide additional uses that do not directly impact performance (and hence, not conferring any gameplay advantage).

I gave two examples : a service to record (and then later play back) fights you've witnessed, and a game-within-the-game.
Neither of them is a vanity item - the first provides functionality that does not exist now, while the second provides entertainment options that do not exist now. Yet neither of them gives you any combat advantage, nor an economic advantage either.

Not when they haven't been delivering on the development side of eve with our current subs.

To give them more money to spend on other games is not something im willing to do. EvE pays for itself. But they started diverting that money to other things. Not a shock considering a banker is in charge.

Another one: Air time for corps/alliances displayed on that big arsed in-game tv in the captain quarters.

AUR pays for air-time, which can be variable based on average players logged in during the given time-zone.

Corps like Jericho Fraction (are they even around still?) might dig that one, given their love for all kinds of banners.
