    Yep, so depending on your timezone we should see the new cosmetics today or tomorrow. Once they give a date for something they have hit is so far.

    From a sales standpoint on their end why would they want to do that? They want you to see the current cosmetics, buy your package because you think you might want them, and then the next month when you see more you just must have, buy those separately too. Not look at this months and next months and think, "Ohhh, the next month's are going to be more of a look I want to have in game, so I will hold onto my cash till those come out." Remember, all of it is purely cosmetic stuff, it all comes down to what you think you "must have."

    i don't mean to be a Debbie downer but isn't it a little silly to pay for access to something that literally doesn't even really exist yet?

    uhu. But these are actually ways to co fund the game in development with no subscription as of yet.
    I can understand the kick-starting as you are making an investment into the company in good faith with no guarantee of success. I can even understand the merchandise as you actually get something material for cash to wear.
    But paying a fortune for cosmetics and mounts with no game to play them in, smacks of star citizenship to me.

    I know and understand what you mean but a lot of Players are  like "hmm i dont know should i wait ?" bc 75 /150 /500 Dollars is a lot so you could give them a bit more controll about the handling and to give the custom a feel of controll is very imortant when you want to sell something.

    It really doesn't matter. We know that the art work will be just a rough sketch of what they possibly might look like. The Stuffertons bear has Steven admitting that the artwork they are giving may only be a rough idea of what they will look like. So for most of them you should be able to figure it out. "Midnight Mare" expect a black horse, and so on. Like many things in this game development, they don't answer questions about various mechanics because they just don't know themselves yet. At the bottom of this quote he basically admits that all of the artwork is placeholder and what it is really going to look like hasn't even been worked on yet.

    From Steven on March 15th in "Breaking Immersion" thread.
    "I am pretty big on immersion, but relying on trust from the community that all assets in-game will conform to an immersive atmosphere is probably not the best approach given the history of mmorpg's over the past so many years. It is also difficult to give in-game representations of cosmetics because our production at the moment is on getting Alpha 1 ready.  Cosmetics are scheduled to be worked on just before launch of the game."
