I think that every person employed under CCP should dress up as clowns. It has just about as much chance as every other suggestion that people are posting becoming reality.

Deadly Intent.

Make a booster that requires an in game narcotic, perhaps a bpc as well and some resource such as gas, or other commodities much like the current booster production. You buy the bpc with aurum and need to first react then cook everything in low or null sec. What could it possibly be for? lot's of benign annoyances for players, make a booster that drops your clone jump time by a fraction of time but can only be used so much in X amount of time, you can even add a caveat that abuse of this substance could result in the risk of losing an implant on your next jump.

Make a booster that makes your warp velocity faster (godsend for freighters and long trips) Make one to enhance the effectiveness of archaeology and hacking. Always make the end product part of the in game economy not just be created from thin air. you could do quite a few benign things.

^^Would totally buy this^^

While I oppose "I win" buttons and buying skill points, I would be cool with being able to trade plex/aur/whatever for a remap. Even with a remap you still have to actually train the skills.

Another idea: I don't know if it would even be possible, but why not let us trade in plex/aur for RL merch from the Eve store? I would be willing to use ISK to buy plex to pay for an EON subscription and a Guristas hoodie. You would have to exempt using plex to buy ETC from the store, though.

Just a thought,

-Ship skins (provided there is BPC or ship-exchange)
-Corporation logos for all corp ships for a certain amount of time? (paid from by a corp CEO)
-Change character race/gender
-Snowball launchers/snowballs <------ THIS
-More clothes for toons
-Crap to fill CQ
-I like the CQ TV corp recruitment ad idea (and the pay-to-remove-ad idea)
-Billboard recruitment ads
-Gambling (even against npcs... then the AUR can sink?)
-I actually support Soundwave's "more than 50 fittings" idea from the Fearless deal, and his concept of making the AUR have a two-way functionality, like rewarding AUR to sov holders etc makes the whole thing more palatable to me.
-Perhaps open up a bunch of new icons for medals/corp logos that are "premium"?
-Ability to make my alt have terrible posture, slouching over and rubbing hands together like a super-villain while he walks around. Or even walk like Igor.
-Premium ammo/mods/drones that aren't any better but are basically like epeen mods. Stats would be identical, and it'd have to be a trade-in system, or bpc system.
-Use AUR to buy stuff in the EvE-online store? I think that would probably go to a lot of use, TBH.
-battle recorder functionality sounded cool
-Bid to change system descriptions?
-Pay to remove the PI "can't do that for 7 seconds" BS messages.
-Pay to allow dscan spam?
-Pay to have menacing music play when you arrive on grid to anyone that "looks at" your ship?
-Pay to have your ship show up with a gold box around it in the targeting list when someone targets you
-Pay to add a gold star to the center of your ship icon on overview? (just trying to think of ways people would pay for epeen length. I mean, people pay for BS weapon and class skins in BFBC2, so....)
-Pay to allow 4+ names (under character limit, of course)
-Increased character limit on ship name
-Shuttle BPCs (bunches of new types)

Not sure how much of an advantage can be gained from these:
-Pay to biomass a toon faster
-Pay for more toons on an account

MMM remaps for AUR... now that is something I would like to have. I'f they add it I for one would be happy. Must be the best idea so far what to do with AUR in my opinon :)

  • Holoreals which include professionally narrated Eve fiction

  • 'Exotic Dancers'

  • 'Companion/escort characters/droids'...or slave if you're Amarr

  • 'Trophy holo-board' - that commemorates your kills

  • 'Themed quarters' eg. pirate theme, Sansha theme, industrial theme, trade mogul theme etc

  • In-game advertising (must be Eve related)

1. Race change
2. Bloodline change
3. Sex Change

As above doesn't matter to the game mechanics at this point anyway.

4. Total resculpting of the body (inability to alter breast size, but change tattoos? someone needs an update on whats already available in RL in regards to "cosmetic" changes.)

5. Name change (1: include it in char-transfer process)
6. Employment history wipe included in the above (You basically get a new life for your char, make it available only once/twice a year, like remaps are and costly).

Hard to come up with anything useful and not-giving advantage at the same time, because "useful" in eve online is defined by giving you an advantage.

Nr 4 should really be included by default thou.

Posted - 2011.06.28 09:46:00 - [229]

I'd be cool with custom paint jobs for ships, because I have already seen how this could add to gameplay: I've heard, a corp is forming who will especially go after paint jobs and monocles. Meaning, you can send in a couple of paint jobs, and then come with the entire unpainted brunt, and you have good pew-pew. Also, it would figure within the lore that some pilots would paint their ships as a sort of assertation of "Here I come".

Also, what about custom ships, which fit into the gameplay. Today, you can buy a Minmatar Slasher, for which you pay this amount of ISK, you will need these types and levels of skills, and the Frigate will have these slots and this CPU power. Howver, tomorrow, you can buy a Minmatar Flowerpower Booze Cruise Slasher Thing, where you need the same skills and levels, and have the same stats and slots as on the normal Slasher. And you pay enormous AUR for it, and have your corp mates come over and party in it, while you wait for your assembly job to finish ;D

Re-sculpting for AUR. I -bet- this may sell. It would sell to me tbh.

In general, vanity as a part of gameplay is not such a stupid idea. I like the idea, if someone paid serious AUR they can have a nullsec renamed. Ultimative vanity, and it has some bearings from old times, when conquerors named cities after them. Also it does not ruin it for those, who just want the spaceship thing going for them.

I also like the poster printing option :)

  • The ability to purchase things in the EVE store (eg, real shirts, ship models, etc) for AUR

  • Fanfest tickets for AUR

  • CONCORD billboard / captain's quarter's advertisements for AUR, subject to GM approval

  • Computer upgrade discounts. Spend X AUR, get Y amount off your next purchase at Z computer-related site, such as newegg or whatever.

Ooh I like this one. Buy the monocle and not only does it show up on your avatar, you get a real one sent to you.

yes, YES, yes :D

But in general CCP must know that their playerbase recruits from a world, where there is an increasing difference in the financial means. Meaning, no, people may not be able to buy that Alienware computer and cannot have more than one credit-card paid for account. Therefore, there must be an option to not load the Captain Quarters environment at all on the computer hardware, not just the door thing. And then there will be the winners of this economic crisis, who are totally buying custom paint jobs, monocles and other such things, because they can and they want to. It would be a bad thing to just concentrate on those with money, because they are in general a fickle bunch.

Lots of neat features and ideas here, but I just don't see any reason to provide those by AUR instead of ISK. The AUR is a fail from the start. This new currency has no justification in game except helping CCP to trim down the PLEX stocks. The NEX store doesn't have justification either, EVE already has a market and an LP store.

Step back, think about it. EVE has a lot of issues to be dealt with, but the lack of a new currency and a virtual store to use it in was not one of them.

Edit: Acceptable solution to me would be to make AUR a stackable, destroyable item, like PLEX are, hence introducing a much needed "liquid" currency for a soon to come black market

Shouldn't have to pay for that because TBH it should already be in the game. Aces High a WW2 combat sim I used to play had a built in recorder that worked pretty damn good.

It essentially recorded game data to a flat file as there was no reason to actually record video being you have all the models/textures ect built into your client. This allowed you to record hundreds of hours of game play using very little hard drive space.

When you were ready to watch what you recorded you used a viewer that would play back the game data recorded using the in game models ect and it looked just as if you were in the game. The awesome thing was you could then view from several camera angles and actually build movies using it that could then be exported to AVI.

1) You could buy image frames to display in CQ which are then filled by content from a user's machine. Either screenshots, quafe posters or the obligatory images of naked people.

2) Currently we have holographic representations of our ships in CQ that we use for fitting, etc... Re-skin them in a gold texture and you have a small ship statuette you could hang from the ceiling, mount on the wall, put on the table or, if you want to spend a little more AUR, make it absolutely massive and put one next to the bed. Admittedly I'm against MT as a whole, but even I would reach for my wallet if I could hang a massive gold Arbitrator from the ceiling at a reasonable right price.

3) Existing models could also be used for other items that players would like to see in 3D such as faction logos, corp logos, miniature stations, even the mannequin from previewing vanity items standing in the corner looking creepy.

4) Corp logos used as textures for bedding, sofa cushions, posters, door buttons even silhouettes for spotlights to project the logo onto surfaces or for computer consoles, rugs, or basically anything you'd find in your own home. Could be sold as interior decoration schemes.

5) Corp logos or faction logos as brooches or pins to decorate clothing.

The SecWars game from the Incarna bar trailer (when it was still Ambulation/WiS).

I would buy it.

Actually a lot of the Incarna things planned for the future could work well either entirely as NeX items, or upgradable using NeX. (e.g. Shops/Shop clerks, Bartenders, Fedo-powered mounts...)

It could even be reasonable to open up the future Incarna content (stations, shops, etc.) to people without subs, or former subscriptions (one time PLEX purchase?). It would draw in more people (and vets who might want to chat with old corpmates) without those people negatively affecting the gameplay in space - in the same way DUST514 will interact with the planets without affecting gameplay in space.

In other words, NeX could be entirely limited to Incarna-related content, but still provide the extra income for CCP to support more development in EVE, DUST and WoD.

Or it could be a terrible idea thought up in a 4am insomnia-induced haze. Neutral

Just a couple of thoughts about how to keep some of the ideas CCP threw around within the dynamic of Eve.

One has already been suggested,several times. BPC's, instead of 'poofing' into existence a new Scorpion skin it would be a bpc that you would have to use to turn a Scorpion hull into the new design. ad infinitum for any ship skin. So you take your ship, your BPC, your tritanium/pyerite /mexallon /nocxium / to a paint shop and a few hours later you got your shiney new hotrod.

They thought about selling standings? No way, stupid. However, they could make available black ops agents for each race depending on who it is you want to improve your standings with. You would buy a means to contact this agent who would then allow you safe passage whilst working for him/her, like a key card to open certain gates. This could bring new missions to the game which are specific to black ops agents as with the Cosmos missions, they could involve courier missions, rescue missions or diplomacy missions. They could even have extra black ops specific items in the same way as the cosmos missions, but the main aim would be to build your standings back up through working 'undercover' for whoever you've offended in the past. This would also give a 'tangible' item that would make it's way into the market place - for example, Amarr Black Ops Contact Card.

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 ?

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.
