    Come on now, don't pretend you don't love every minute of your job



    I couldn't pretend even if I wanted to. I love sitting here watching the deployment chat, watching social media and the forums and see if our plans were good enough to survive reality. Big smile

    Where is the titan/supercarrier skins :/

    We are still running the Ship Skinning Pilot Program, i.e. to see if there is interest in this before we commit a larger group of people of doing this properly (as the current skinning method is not the way we want to have it).

    When we take the next step in the ship skinning journey I assure you that pilots that don't have the ability to dock will not be forgotten when it comes to pimping up your ship.

    1 Can you still Convert AUR into PLEX?


    1. Yes



    how do we convert AUR into PLEX?

    I only see PLEX to AUR options or is that an option only in the ingame new eden store when kronos is live?

    I misread his point. It has never been possible to convert AUR to PLEX. It is however still possible to convert PLEX to AUR.

    If you are referring to the clothes available only to specific races in the character creator then that is a very good idea. I'll check if we can explore that further.


    This would be very much appreciated. I know more than a few people who'd love to have access to cross-race clothing.

    Also, the blog notes 'new tattoos,' but lists the existing Prototype and Wreckage tattoos. Are these new-for-general-consumption, or were those placeholders for actual new tattoo designs?

    I'm hoping the latter. :P

    These are new-for-general-consumption.

    2 Is it still 3500AUR/PLEX?

    3 What happened to the new Cruiser and Frigate skins, are they still coming?

    1. Yes. EDIT: Clarification; it has never been possible to convert AUR to PLEX, but you can convert PLEX to AUR.

    2. Yes, but if you buy AUR directly you'll get 4500AUR/20$ (more info is in the dev blog)

    3. There are four new battleship skins coming in, check the blog for more details. The frigates and the cruisers will come in the near future.

    I and several others have been unable to access the New Eden store from Sisi. We continuously receive "Store Unavailable" messages.

    What preparations are being made to handle the many petitions that will be created tomorrow when this hits TQ?

    MDD

    We've been busy making some last minute adjustment to our new backend so that might explain the outages you are referring to.

    If you encounter any more getting a bug report about it would be immensely helpful.

    The new store is amazing. And I especially like the new clothes you put in it :D

    Three things though:

    1- Could we see more boots for womens?

    2- Could we have a 3D preview for clothes, instead of a frozen image with no way at all to look at the cloth in 3D in the new eden store ? We can't even show info. At least in yesterday's sisi build.

    3- The prices are TOO DAMN HIGH FOR DESTRUCTIBLE STUFF (ship skins). EvilEvilEvil
    I bet the use of skinned ship is very low even though people still have their free AUR in stock. Imagine when they won't have their free AUR anymore...

    1. We have several more items ready to push out. I'll poke around and see if we cannot include more bootses.

    2. In this first release we decided against the 3D preview. We will be looking into adding that at a later date.

    3. We will continue to monitor and adjust the prices of the consumable items (e.g. the ship skins). We do believe that offering other ship skins that are only available through ingame actions (such as with the new sites coming in Kronos) we'll have something for everyone.

    Regarding ship skins, I know that the current crop of 8 or 9 ship skins are done to test the waters. Can you (or someone) tell us when CCP plans to evaluate the success of that test? Will there be a devblog about it?

    MDD

    We are gathering data and seeing how the usage of the skinned ships is now that they are a part of the larger economy. We will have to allow more time to pass before we can start communicating further.

    Xhagen threw out a question to the CSM regarding the differences between corporation mechanics and the social aspect of corporations.
    Not as much 'differences' as 'handicaps' (mechanics that are beta programming dinosaurs) crippling the social aspects of corporations to the point where the CSM blindly agreed there's a "difference" between npc and player corps.

    Really? The comparison shouldn't by all rights even be in the same ballpark as an NPC corp. Makes you wonder how much reflection bitter vets have for the blinkered view they acquire.

    The fact the question elicited comments about NPC corps being comparable is proof positive people aren't looking at solutions beyond bandaids. The system is horrible. the fact that Xhagen's question provoked tepid response is horrifying to me and everyone who's been a CEO who at least tries to give power to the people (not just greedily hoard them for the directors/ceo as is the wont of the current overly complex, full of loopholes, paranoiac surrealistic nightmare mechanics)

    The actual response to Xhagen's question should have been a resounded "There's a vast gulf!"

    Good to know.

    My line of thinking can also be described as "is the reason for forming a corp a social one or a game mechanic one?" and then the second thought is "would there be any benefit of having a social group, more than just a chat channel, without the baggage that corps are (i.e. the assets, wars, etc.)?"

    Some quick questions about your plans for this.

    What kind of limitations (if any) will there be? Will I we able to for example make a Khanid Interon V or an interbus Tengu?

    Will the blueprints be ship specific? Ie, we'll have to buy a "Qafe Dominix" BP or would it be something more like a "Quafe Battleship" BP that can be used with any battleship?

    How about a "skin slot" on ships. Instead of manufacturing a ship with a specific skin, we just create the skin as an item and then apply it to a ship of appropriate size. Ie, I buy a Thukker Mix Cruiser skin BP, produce some Thukker Mix Skins and then put one on my Legion, one one my Thorax and sell the rest on the market.


    If we make a skinning system proper, we would have to go the route of "the thing that changes the color of your ship" is an item of some sort that can then be applied/fitted/affect to your ship.

    We will not continue with the BPC implementation as it is very limiting and unsustainable in the long run.

    I want to reiterate that this is just an initial pilot program and that if we see evidence that ship customization is desired by our players we will continue to expand and improve it.
