Collect player $ and PLEX (aka aurum) as "votes" for new content. For example, CCP might create a cowboy pack of apparel with 1000 aurum buy-in. Once players contribute enough then the content is created/completed and plugged into the game in the form of BPs.

Works for ships, too, as CCP might propose a series of Serpentis ships (say, frigate/cruiser/BS) with a 20000 aurum donation goal. If enough players contribute then the ships are created, coded and introduced as BPs.

The beauty of this is that a) players can vote for content they want by donating (dollars or PLEX as aurum) to the projects that interest them most b) all items are still made by players and c) CCP can get compensated for any additional content they add. They set the donation goals based on what is profitable for them.

This creates a virtuous cycle of player feedback, extra revenue for CCP and preservation of the in-game economy.

I'd expect CCP to continue with free expansions, but this will help generate more revenue and content in the interim periods.

Ideas are posted with stats and sketches, or possibly early renders, so players can understand what they'll be getting.

Super extra points if CCP releases a content development kit to allow players to create the content for a % cut of the cost. This further enhances the content stream.

I'd like to also point out that this allows them to add both vanity and non-vanity items without issue.

Moreover, players who "donate" above a certain amount might get one of whatever the projects item is, similar to the kickstarter model.

Coming from a forum alt that not only does not have a monocle but also has no avatar.

For your information since you have not even logged in to eve. Monocles do nothing.
They are a vanity item and useless unless you like to change your avatar.

It's easier to take out all plexes from the game in a patch. You get 400m per plex owned and after that only monthly fee subscription is available to everyone.

Hijackers.

This allows CCP to use their Aurum currency in a proper way, and donors can still get items for Aurum by donating a larger amount and getting the rewards items once they are placed in the game. Everyone else can just manufacture/buy as with other items.
