Let the players design the items sold in the NEX store, so we get more choice in what we get to wear.

Currently the designs all seem fairly bland - even compared to the last version of character creator.
nothing feels very futuristic or sci-fi.

The best people to design stuff for the NEX store that other players will want to buy is the players themselves.
We could easily see Avalloc making a Fatbee t-shirt and half of the goons buying it outright (the spies trying to fit in).

VAVLe have had a very successful program along the same lines allowing people to Contribute to TF2.

CCP could...
  • specify copyright guidlines

  • specify what format they want the models submitted in.

  • release a compiler if need be for maya / blender / others

  • release base models for us to model around

  • re-purpose the staff you have making NEX items to reviewing submissions and fine tuning them (or even posting feedback to the author for them to do it)

  • Give the contributing capsular 10/25% royalties in AUR of any of their items that sell.


You want people to accept Incarna... What better way then having a capsular run a store on a promenade, selling apparel designed by themselves and other capsulars?
Whereas currently we have just 1 captains quarters that loses functionality compared to our old hangers with just our own space barbie to look at in fairly bland clothing.

Indeed there are plenty of mechanics in other games that allow this.

Boring is the word, not unlike our character creator, no more races...
