Bumping for a Dev answer.


I think I could be classed as insane ITT. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

When you implement items that are indestructible, yeah generally thats gonna happen.


Cmon Devs, you gonna do awesome PR and keep ignoring threads again? How bout an honest answer for people actually interested in your game?

Or is that too much to ask?

There should be an option to insure vanity items, clothing and other stuff from the NEX shop. Insurance removes the painful process of redoing your character customization after you have been podded or it can be an extra element for pilots that want to live a more risky life. Give a warning when you undock if vanity items are not insured.

Insurance gives the possibility to make the vanity items destructible and keeps it more in line with the rest of EVE in which all items are destructible. Immersion will be much better for all pilots. So please CCP make the vanity items insurable instead of indestructible. Very Happy

This makes absoloutely no sense at all CCP. My implants are lost, my medical clone is lost, MY CORPSE IS IN SPACE, yet apparently your clothing and/or monacle are indestructible?

Could a dev just jump in here and sort this out nice and quick for me please?


well you dont wear your clothes in the pod, and probably you get a lifetime 100% insurance with your monocle, that would explain the price, wouldn't it?


fu with realism in a CG lol.

no not really, because they are only replaced if you are wearing them which as you stated, you aren't as you are naked in your pod. If you are transporting them in your cargo they can be destroyed/dropped.

Its not about realism, its about consistency.

If the monocle (an implant) is indestructible through insurance, why cant we get it for other implants?

Ill happily pay 5 billion per implant for higrade slaves if theyre a permanent acquisition.

So to all the people crying "its an insurance thing" fine, Ill go with that. If its consistent accross the board.

Dont you dare then fall back on the "its a vanity item, it gives no benefits" argument. Your saying an implant has insurance so it can be replaced. If it works for one, it works for all.

Any chance of a CCP dev clearing this up?

There's no chance, CCP are going to ignore this until people get bored of asking.

They can't make a $70 set of pixels destructable, because people wouldnt buy them. Its a case of making money being more important than the integrity of the game lore.

We're podded (some of us at least) and automatically get reborn in clone vats trillions of miles away - and you're worried about monocles and pants?

I'm bored of this groundhog day wha wha wha - 'I've found a hole in this logic' - tear festival. It's a game. Get over it.



It's a massive multiplayer online ROLEPLAYING game.

Do you understand what ROLEPLAY means?

It means that one plays a ROLE.

And in eve that ROLE means that we pretend that EVE is a harsh universe where things die and get destroyed. It does not matter if you're naked because the ****ing monocle is IMPLANTED. You know. Like an IMPLANT. It even says it's an IMPLANT in the ****ing description.

And you know what happens to IMPLANTS when you get podded? They get destroyed. Unless they're a monocle.

You know what that means? That means someone is not playing their role anymore. That means anyone wearing a monocle is somehow godmoding because they have an indestructible item. When someone does something like that in a roleplay they usually get banned.

Not in so in EVE. Which means EVE isn't a roleplaying game anymore. It totally breaks the immersion, not making sense even on its own terms. It's broken.



i have to agree

What happens to the items you have purchased, or are wearing when you get into your pod? And if they are stored on the ship somewhere, once again, refer to the op.

you haven't bought a physical item you've bought the license to have that item for personal use. thus if your monacle perishes in the vacuum of space when your clone is awoken another monacle is provided to him. same thing with clothes. it's just a matter of having the fabbers make you another pair of pants according to the license you bought.

Lets go roleplaying.

Why do my normal clothes, jewellery, shades not get destroyed? Why is there an infinite supply of them for free at whichever station I dock at?

Game breaking.

So I can lose my ship and implants but other people can't lose their possessions? Clothes just magically appear at every station in NE? At least make people haul them in cargo. I can't wait until Dust flops, I hope somebody with a brain buys EvE and does something with it. So much potential and CCP just ignores everything now.

This, I want to know why nobody mentions it, specially when some of the normal clothes are better than the NeX ones.

It was never an issue when clothes weren't changeable. It was consistent.



Let me try this from a different angle


Someone buys clothing in Jita with the intention to sell on market and make a profit. They set their clone to the destination station, undock, get a corpie to blow them up, guess what? They just transported market items instantly with absoloutely zero risk at all.

You could move billions of isk of clothing items risk free for as many people as you like with no dramas at all.

But thats cool right?

Thing is it looks like its to get the market started. Once the Nex store is established and all the fury over monicles has died down and everyone has been buying nex clothes for a year or two.

What's to stop CCP saying, oh yeah, its all destructable from next patch?

The point is that its their new baby and the main reason for it is to make them more money and they want to make sure it gets off the ground.
