    As far as I know coloring is determined by the skill needed to use that color and the rarity of the paints that drop. The lack of black clothing is due to the high level it takes to use it. This is compounded by the fact it rarely drops.

    For Darkshark...There are many options to cloths now in EU if you have the skills to make the changes. If you dont you are bound to finding someone who can custom make you what you want like the rest of us. I do agree with you that the base clothing selection is lame and maybe a more "Freehand" way to color and pattern cloths should be developed to get away from the color between the lines way we have now. I dont how ever want to see EU become anything like Second Life. The mere comparison makes me wanna throw up.

    Bottom line is that MA is limiting what can be done with the game engines capabilities to keep their economy in check. More freedoms for us means its harder for them to skim from the many options. Sadly this is a catch 22 situation as more ways to make money means they could get ahead faster but would have to take less each chunk and they cant get past that mentality to grab the money and run like they have in past few years. They have ZERO future sight any longer.

    I am a Tailor on Calypso, and sorry Atlan I have a black coat. there has been some good points on the color of clothes. May I suggest you introduce Dies instead of paint, only to be used on Arkadia clothing ? That way you will not affect the EU paint system.
    And the Idea by Lee to make and Emblem is great, for Arkadia clothes or as a Paint type of ability to put on EU clothing.
    Sorry But I am an Aussie and my clothes suggestion would be, 'Thongs' 'Esky' 'Can of Beer' 'Drysabone Coats' 'Ug Boots' ' Footy Jumpers (all codes)'
    And for vehicles lets see, Basic Motorbike, Choppers and Trikes.
    :)

    Roflmao Garek, perhaps I should clarify for our non-australian participants that "Thongs" are in Australia actually Flip Flops / Sandles, not a G-String... lol

    About something unique. I was thinking if it is possible to make something which is unique on this planet but also necessary for crafting or item for anther planets. In this way traders will have more movitation to travlling around for reselling, which may contribute a bit for the eco for each planet. And I think this will be good for the developemnt for all planets.

    I dont like the current splanet system. What you found on RT has nothoing to do with the item had been found on Calypso. In some way they were two independ system and planet.

    If there are something not common but found only on RT, and also necessary for Calypso, same way like something on Calypso, I think there will be players travlling between two planets more than now.

    wait....what am i talking about, a new way for MA robbing our money? lol

    i believe the system is deliberately set up that way as each planet is supposed to be its own independent game with the option of travelling to other planets. This way each owning company is responsible for all marketing within its own "territory". Whilst you will get some bleed over into other areas/planets, the system is designed to minimise this as much as possible so that one person dominating in one area won't necessarily do the same in another.

    No sorry needed, mate.
    I know there are some black or dark coats/clothes around, but honesty they cost a arm and a kidney to get.
    And I am not a type for the current "pimp my bling bling" colored clothes.

    I was more thinking along the lines of Mad Max etc.

    Regards,
    Ion

    Some idea's

    Ok, let me clarify it a bit more with examples.

    I did browse around my own art and concept files and found a few examples I made or still working on.
    I think these examples give a decent idea of what I have in mind.

    And for those who are wondering, yes I made the pictures myself.
    Maybe not all great quality since they are test renders of idea's I am working on.

    Something unique to this planet? Well it's in a war, or between them, the planet itself is devastated, so all or many of the big city's will be gone or nearly so. Anything unique might be a military or paramilitary look, from cloths to vehicles and equipment. Once there are city's on the planet things will change but for the start up, nothing colorful or fancy, unless you brought it with you, and that's not unique to the planet. Also any vehicles or weapons we find must have totally different designs than we have on EU, no boats or cars that are exactly the same, all with more 'hard' looks and stronger looking with dark (green/brown) colors. After a year or so, bright colors will work their way in but not for the beginning.

    Something like these pants would be great, I always wanted some combat looking clothes.

    And another thing I been waiting for are loose fitting pants not like the tights we have now :/
    something along the lines of these:

    And Arkadia emblems and such would be cool too :)

    Nice pic Jamira :)

    We certainly aim to introduce military and treasure hunting themed clothing. There are some tech challenges with clothes, ie baggy pants aren't as efficient as tight fitting, but we'll be working on it. No promises regarding clothes at launch, but rest assured we see it as a very important part of the identity of the planet.

    A question about items on Planet Arkadia, if it is possible for us as players to be able to loot all the items on Planet Arkadia so we can do all things on this new planet or are we forced to go back to Planet Calypso to buy or loot items we need on this new Planet Arkadia.

    I thought all the weapons and armours were Calypso specific.

    I think I saw an Arkadia Studios official mention that the full economy will be set up before Planet Arkadia launches. I would assume that mean that you could loot Planet Arkadia equivalent items (etc.) and everything you needed to remain on Arkadia without heading back to Calypso?

    I'm sure that's what they want to achieve yes. By the information we have recieved i think they might be able to do it. But it will take a while to get enough players on the planet. So far i think they'll have a more flying start then the last two planets. Time will tell if they manage it.

    My guess by Fully functioning economy they mean all starting gear will be available in the tt tht is specific to Arkadia. that all three main professions will have a starting point..planet specific mobs for hunters, ores and Ens for miners, and basic tt bp's for the crafters to start.

    All the "Drop" items would have to be approved by MA and by the way the other two have started and what they say about MA holding things they want to add too long I dont think there will be an abundance of these items just yet. Hopefully I am wrong but I am going into this with a realistic view and not inflated so I will be amazed by every thing I see and not disappointed by anything I do not.

    I have faith in Arkadias staff..
    MA how ever has always come up short by a large margine.
