A suggestion for CCP if you are looking to make money from the AUR store think of these options.

1) Sell a complete skill point reset for real $$ equiv of $45
This would mean you lose ALL injected skills including the BOOKs so there is a negative to doing this.

2) Sell a COMPLETE faction standing reset for real $$ equiv of $45
This would also mean you lose ALL standings so any faction/npc standings BAR sec status get set to 0.00

3) Change the CERTIFICATE system to have "pilot" quals. IE interceptor pilot, logistics pilot, battleship pilot and then have some mixed categories. IE Spec ops master and so on where a number of single ship type certs are needed. Then when a player unlocks this cert it unlocks a uniform in their choice of color in the NEX store for a purchase price of around $3-4 Then people have a reason to show off and its not expencive.

4) Give people a std wardrobe with 5 slots (shirts,pants,boots) of which you can mix and match as you see fit. Then offer MORE wardrobe slots for $5 each

5) give people fish tanks, bed sheets picture frames, pinball machines and even awards to hang on their CQ walls

6) have a larger range of clothes having 6 items at a major patch launch is a pretty big joke.

7) add custom ship SKINS NOT new ships so if guys want to have their scorp look cool they can buy a $5-$10 ship skin that is then always even after the ship is destroyed every scorp you buy would be fitted with the same skin. Even have multipul skins.

8) add custom ship paint schemes that you could pick from a std list of color types for each skin.

9) Add the ablilty to buy a BIGGER CQ for $5-$100 where as you scale up you add a bigger room or add extra rooms.

These are just some ideas of things that everyone i have spoken to has been talking about.

Ships/ammo/implants should NEVER be sold. a sandbox is a sandbox everything made in every is made by players (or as much as possible)

These are just some ideas feel free to comment

Please ensure you just add positive things to this post about what you would like to see sold and the basic price bracket.

CSM if other people post ideas in here please present these to CCP.

AUR & NEX is here to stay... now lets give them items that WE want at prices WE want to pay. The whole name MICRO transactions means exactly that MICRO ie dollar here dollar there. NOT $60 for 1 item.

To be honest I'm somewhat shocked to see this thread.

Someone who isn't a HATER! - A nice change indeed.

(just an FYI - option 1 has been argued by some players as a form of giving a player an in-game advantage, however it's no more advantageous than being able to buy a PLEX for isk imho)

(i am not bothering to comment on the rest as i'm sure there'll be plenty of other people to do that)


but hey,

+1 For a thread that is positive and not a pathetic hate-mail. Laughing

i can see your point in topic 1 and 2the rest is just WTF

why not give people FREE content as it should be normal ffs. you pay your ****ing fee for a reason.

1st server, support, 2nd content

why should every "non combat" item cost reallife money - i dont get the point, incarna was announced a long time ago, they always talk about how "awesome" it will be, and now have to pay rl-money to use this new features properly.
even more worse are guys wanting even more stuff to buy in the nex-store, stuff the should get for free

don't get me wrong - i really see the point and advantage in payed services like sp-resets but the other things you are mentioning like
-having a wardrobe or the possibility to add custom stuff in your CQ should really be normal content added sometimes. it is just wiered they talk about an awesome and big addon and you have to choose from 9pants which are actually just 3 because there are 3repaints for each.

Guys come on. You can currently still buy vanity items for ISK. spend 350mil buy a plex then by cloths. its not that hard. The main issue is why anyone would spend 1.2bil isk on a monocle.

The big issues are GAME changing items should be built by players not spawned. CCP have spent years changing the markets. PI and so on.

Also as i said above they are just ideas you dont have to like them. But my guess is that AUR is here to stay because they would have spent alot of money on the coding to get all of it to work. So now we need to find things that they can fill the store with that will add EXTRA things to eve for the people that like shiny stuff. for those that dont and wont use CQ why do you care about cloths that you will never buy anyway?

Actually, I want to use CQ, and all the features Incarna has to offer. When I first heard of 'Ambulation' (the name this umbrella 'feature' itself it was going by when first proposed, as you know "ambulation" simply means "walking") I was a massive supporter of the idea.

I simply do NOT believe -additional- expense is justified for use of ANY of it's content. The monthly fee is progressive, and the amount paid is cumulative. Content creation should be no different... otherwise, charge me once, like a normal non-MMO title, then **** off. ;)

Do you have access to a titan? if not then you are not getting access to all the content in this game and by your logic they should give you one for free.

You still have access to buy everything with ISK like every other module in the game.

AUR is simply a method of keeping the plex prices up so that when they stamp out botting it doesnt effect the price too much.

Explain to me what part of the game content you wont have access too?

You assume I support PLEX either. Since it (and people like you, by proxy) are using it to justify MT's in EVE from the angle you are doing now... I no longer support that either.

But it was a good point you made, before I regained my sanity.

:P

A Hoolah Girl.

i have been making it a custom to whereever i went to keep a stack of exotic dancers in my cargohold. Since the ships were massive and a hoolah girl on the dashboard wasnt visible. It grew outto be a corp motto. "never go without the dancers" But ever since incarna we are back to the human level again. So time for a hoolah girl!

Ship paint would be pretty awesome, but personally I would only think about buying it if it was either reusable or SUPER cheap.

Personally, I would be OK with paying one dollar for ship paint if it were a one use deal. If its reusable, maybe five dollars?

Clothes are meaningless at the moment other than to look at by myself in the CQ, so I wouldn't spend more than a dollar or two as it doesn't show off anything other than to me. Increase the stuff that is being sold in the CQ and allow players to interact and it might be a bit more fun, but for the moment I'm not interested in clothes at all.

I like the idea of being able to dump skill points, maybe a set number of skill points for a certain price point? I have a bunch of industrial skills that I wish I could reassign to something more combat oriented. Maybe do it in chunks of 100k skill points per "package"

No can do. This makes too much sense. Very Happy (+1)

Edit: This is why it makes too much sense - It's clear that the NeX store is targeted for stinking rich players with too much isk on their hands. Virtual monocle, real Quafe T-Shirt, what's the difference? These stinking rich players help offload PLEX from the market in either case, this act drives up PLEX prices and helps even more guys purchase isk with PLEX. CCP makes more revenue.

ALSO, rational (and irrational) people may actually purchase PLEX with real $$ and buy a real T-shirt, whereas only the real nut jobs will purchase a PLEX with real $$ to buy a monocle.

I really want a top hat and a cane.

And before someone think I'm a troll, I'm actually dead serious. People don't seem to understand that I want my character to be stylish.

The so called "stinking rich" players do supply PLeX to the market, but adding more supply of an item with a roughly fixed demand does not increase prices, it lowers them. The more people who buy PLeX with cash, the lower the value of PLeX in ISK.

To bring things back on topic, i would like to see the option to activate the skill queue on a second character on the same account for the price of a plex. You 'd still be paying the equivalent of a second account but would simplify the "book keeping" as such.

Race and gender change.

Seeing as for some time race/school/bloodline has meant nothing in relation to attributes, and how incarna changed the aesthetic of every race it seems only right to give people a do-over, albeit a purchasable one for a reasonable price, 12k aurum.

And yes, in the sandbox MT should be kept to vanity items only. The instant anything slightly game changing becomes attainable even indirectly through real money, it ceases to be a sandbox and player driven economy.

Ship decals would be nice, nothing says you're screwed quite like a giant flaming 666 on the side of an Armageddon with a cruiser sized skull plastered on the front.

Well ...
Why not a poker mini-game (sort of) with very moderate and limited Aurum-bets ?

Or an enhanced 'jump clone' upgrade with a 16/8/4h jump timer ?

Just raw thinking ... Question

Corp Paint jobs.

Corp pays a great deal to have a crop paint job. Talking 100x monical cost.

Corp pays a lot for corp logo's players can put on ships. Logo placed in 2 slots. Costs 10x monical cost.

Costs a lot but once purchased each corp member only pays a bit of isk or some other resource to use it.

A button that makes leaving your pod and enter CQ optional

A Monocle that lets you see all characters in station without clothes, think about the performance boost the client will get if it doesn't have to render all those clothes.

Or maybe services, like a killboard or a skillplanner I think there will be a big demand for those when the free tools are no longer being developed because people have to pay to do that.

Clothing that doesn't look like it came from an over-priced thrift store.

Back in the day, when we made characters, we had a whole slew of different gadgets that could be put on them. A lot of head gizmos. More of that. Maybe add other things along those same lines. There are multiple layers of clothing for the torso, I could imagine backpack-type things. Gloves with gadgets and flashing lights. I was expecting futuristic but I see grunge.

Various customizable uniforms (uniforms that have corp/alliance logos on them). Maybe throw a bone to the Militias by making uniforms that show their rank.

The option to remove every single trace of RMT in eve. Removing Aurum from the wallet, removing the stupid button in station services and removing the showcase ("incarna"). Everything else is just pure stupid and only stupid people will buy stuff from the vanity store.
