    I don't understand the point of having a clone system. It doesn't add any kind of benefit, yet it can completely destroy your experience by essentially erasing your entire character. Given that it takes months, years even, to train your character, having there be a possibility that you could have that character wiped clean seams like a terrible gameplay mechanic. If my character were wiped, I'd quit EVE and never come back.

    I know that it's not terribly hard to stay on top of your clone, but all it takes is one small mix-up, and you're done. That's an awful idea.

    I'd propose either completely cutting the clone system, or installing a new system, perhaps one in which all clones can keep an infinite amount of skill points, and that clone upgrades instead offer other perks. Perhaps you could choose between clones that give combat or attribute bonuses, or some other kind of benefit for upgrading? The more SP you have in specific fields, the higher level clone options are available?

    I don't particularly care how it's addressed, so long as it's not unbalancing, but having there be a gameplay mechanic that can erase characters you've been training for years is simply a bad idea.
    Um, if you get podded without an updated clone, you don't lose everything. You lose some skillpoints off a random L5 skill, but that's it.

    AFAIK it's not a random L5 skill, but the skill you have the most points in.

    Oh! In that case, never mind! I was under the impression that you lost all skill points that weren't protected by your clone!

    I was thinking about joining RvB because of my sporadic schedule. Who here is in it? I recall seeing at least one person.

    If that's the case I might go Blue since I read Blue needed more people on US time plus I prefer blue as a color. Only down side is that my constant unwillingness to go out and actually make some money means I only have something around 108mil. Good thing it doesn't matter if I just fly the fuck out of cheap shit .

    Simples, CCP doesn't compress their files or encrypt them.

    So editing them with a simple hex editor is possible, in fact, you can edit colors and texture/model path's your self, enabling me to get custom textures in.

    I doubt CCP will care. These alterations are done client-side. It's not like you have the ability to give yourself all level 5 skills.
