Aurum for poker tables and whatever that game was they showed on Eve fanfest video. Make it so players can charge for others to use the tables or even just for entering their bar (so they indirectly charge for tables so people can't say "oh they gain isk advantage by charging at the table"). Jukeboxes, strippers, etc etc for Aurum.

Aurum for ship skins is a good one (like the ishkone scorp).

IDEA #2 - THE INCARNA-BOUND (DIGITAL) "Eve: The Second Genesis Collectible Card Game"

I remember that day at Dragon*Con 2006 when they were selling these at the EVE booth. They even offered tutorials on how to play, etc. And there were already quite a few players (including myself) around the area.
I like this idea, Akita T, however, I don't know if I can fully support it since I've spent so much money on just collecting the EVE: The Second Genesis CCG cards. I think I only lack 4-5 cards from the whole set plus expansions.

Do the cards have any serial numbers on them or any other unique identifiers ?
They could bank quite a bit of goodwill if you could enter the codes and get a digital copy of the physical ones you own...

IDEA #2 - THE INCARNA-BOUND (DIGITAL) "Eve: The Second Genesis Collectible Card Game"

This one is much easier to explain.
For those of you that don't know, "Eve: The Second Genesis Collectible Card Game" is an actual trading cards game that CCP has published at some time in the past in the real world.
As far as I know, production has been discontinued thanks to relatively low interest, since you're not likely to be too close (geographically speaking) with too many other EVE players that are also CCG enthusiasts.

This is the proverbial "shooting down two birds with one stone" deal.
They already have the IP (graphics, rulesets, backgrounds, etc) and they can create a place where the concentration of interested players can reach critical mass - inside Incarna.

Simply translate the CCG into digital form (there actually is a similar RP precedent - "Mindclash") and you're golden.
Just sell the cards, booster packs or whatever it is CCGs are supposed to sell in real life, but sell them for AUR inside Incarna.

Heck, you can also implement "Mindclash" itself while you're at it (later).
Sure, it will be a truckload of work, but... why not ?



Would gladly pay AUR for this, or Isk, or Plexes, or something. Would be fun to play in station with buddies or other people.

I'm serious here,

STARGATES

Just as alliances build outposts, let them build stargates for AUR. Perhaps to w-space, perhaps to ad-hoc, newly randomized systems (make it take a week so CCP can tweak the new system), perhaps even to known space. Stargates.

Alliances start them in a system without really knowing where they will lead when finished, but controlled in a statistical way.

Make them destroyable before they are finished, and make them show up big on the maps. Stargates.

I'm telling you, stargates.

Yeah its kinda hard to come up with useful/fun/desirable stuff that doesn't also offer a gameplay advantage. Assuming a really strict interpretation...

-titles. Add a prefix or suffix to your name in such a way that its still clear what the pilot's name is. May or may not come with different coloured text for local chatter.
-unlocking skill training on more than one character per account, priced in such a way that its cheaper than buying a 2nd account outright.
-random fun tradeable items like Janitors, Exotic Dancers etc. Priced incredibly cheaply
-a temporary or permanent reduction in the clone jump timer. Has some very minor gameplay advantages though.
-ship reskinning. Already planned, but could be accelerated considerably.
-more decorative objects for the captain's quarters. No extra functionality to make them easier to code.
-rentable billboards that work like the corp advert cans but can't be removed by other players till they expire
-"fun" modules like the snowball launcher. Rainbow laserbeams, fireworks rockets. Basically anything that looks shiny but has no actual effects. Perfect for staging mass protests in trade hubs.

Other possible win-win-win's:

AUR for kill-rights. AUR for kill-rights revocation. AUR for war-dec cancellations.

implement their card game through the aurum store, sell booster packs etc for aurum. I know I would buy that crap right up. Let me play the card game with other eve players through the game.

*edit* of course this was brought up already, I'm an idiot. But seriously this would sell a TON. It is a great idea, I just wonder how much programming it would take to make the game functional

folks are forgetting. every custom skin increases server load and the size of your install file.

What about custom ship tinting? That would just be a few bits of code that wouldn't take much space or hit the servers hard.

Remember the chronicle about a capsuleer talking to planetary officials, Xenocracy I believe?
How about being able to make more ridiculous holographic avatars you can then use as portraits? Lots of opportunities for sales, and I'm sure a lot more people will want to look like cyborgs/aliens than wear monocles.

I'd give $1,000 if it meant

(a) players could filter out the forums.

(b) players could view the outside of the station from the inside.

(c) players could open ANY shop/outlet/bar/erotic dancing/tailors/hairdressers/gun polishing place/casino and charge ISK for it.

(d) players could get access to areas of a station based on skill points/age (without transference of character) like the executive lounge on the 8th floor of the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica, that's sticks out like a sore thumb and is externally visible to everyone.

(e) players could see their global rankings for every single aspect of the game, from who's mined the most to who's killed the most. With weekly/monthly/quarterly/annually issued totals. (it helps the economy, and it breeds contempt, which helps the economy...cyclical, you might say and encourages pirates who might have been slacking or smacking a lil' too much)

(f) players could eavesdrop in on conversations and listen to what people are scheming.

(g) players could genuinely stab someone in the back IF a contract existed AND there was a bounty on that someone's head.

(h) players could completely redesign everything from the wallpaper, to the position of the lampshade in their quarters, and for any items to be harvested/manufactured/sold for ISK by other players that could be ornaments.

(i) players could have their own private viewing storage facility for all of their corpses in a frozen cylindrical tube, with a silver plaque on each one and a 'lil italicised note from the kill-mail. Could be good to look someone in the dead-eyes once in a while.

(j) players could visit a telescope on station and stare at the stars in super-duper-technicolor-vision.

(k) players could hire bodyguards who would serve absolutely no purpose, but would make the 'owner' look bad-ass, they could even be sexy-ninja-esque-scant-idly-clad-females with looks and bodies to die for, who would look menacingly at anyone who passes them and reach into their pockets, readying a weapon. Y'know, 'like in the back-stories we read.

(l) players could kick people in the head and leave a bruise that would stay for a least a week, so they wouldn't want to be seen in public - minor point, but I like it the psychology/bullying behind it - because no matter how tough you are, everyone bruises.

(m) players could witness in-station scripted events by AURORA involving concord, guns, shouting and general testosterone stuff that instead of reading about, we see the stuff actually happen. IMMERSION! and something that perhaps volunteers would actually enjoy doing for once?

(n) players could whistle for zero-G taxis to other parts of the station, because legs are wasted on a demi-god.

(o) players could use a remote control and activate the ship-alarm, complete with a visible 'BLEEP-BLEEP' and flashing lights on the ship whilst at the hanger walk-way.

(p) players could see how many space-miles a ship has done and where it has been...could be good to track and hunt down players who have accumulated a lot of distance. Again, it's the psychology of losing a ship that has meaning and significance.

(q) players could float around in zero-g on station in some sections to compete in zero-g sports, again at the expense of the person who setup the game or owns the facility on-station...I don't know about anyone else, but when I was young we used to invent games at the drop of a hat...to be able to do that in zero-g is enticing.

Seriously. Money waiting for any of the above.

NEX bought items should only be usable in station.
I.E. clothes, eve pieces,hats,pool tables,slot machines,ETC. go to town on it.
If it's used ingame, it should be produced ingame.
And should be provided for the sub's. No extra payment's

**** all MT period its a slippery slope, they do not need to make more money, if there seeing inflationary costs erode there profit then maybe increase subs by 2%, but I do not like pay to win thats where it will go, thats what they were discussing.

I do not care for the cq, seriously i walk around ina little cubicle yeah, and screw dust, thats just going to make soverienty even harder to do well we took the system now we have to battle it on the land. these ideas are taking eve in a direction I dont think people want to go.

the only think I think that would be worth paying for and something they would make a mint on would be for $1 you could add your aliance or corps, emblem to a ship. and when that ship gets destroyed you have to buy the emblem again.

I HAVE AN IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FOR 100 AURUM GM RESPONDS TO YOUR PETITION RIGHT AWAY AND IN CHAT WITH YOU, AND PRETENDS TO CARE AND HELPS YOU INSTEAD OF PRETENDING TO BE A ROBOT THAT SAYS "YOUR FAULT WE DONT CARE"


I WOULD PAY 100 AUR for that MAYBE EVEN 200!!!!!!!!

If they dont you get 1000 aurum.... and is not deducted form GMs pay but form CCP.... Dont wanna promote sweatshops.

Cause sometimes swift response is needed.... and i know most dont care but iv been in situations where if i dont recive GM response in 30 matters it dosent matter any more....

Art, paintings that are unique and perhaps auctioned away for AUR. Maybe also have to option to make character portraits with an art collection as the background.

Disclaimer: I have not read the thread so my apologies if someone already suggested something similar.
