    Last month, CCP gave players on the test server the option to purchase a neural remap, or redistribution of attributes, with PLEX. Following a negative response from players and the Council of Stellar Management, CCP has shelved the idea to charge PLEX or ISK for remaps and changed their thinking regarding the sale of virtual goods. CCP Zulu has written a dev blog entry that explains the company's new strategy:

    "Virtual goods sales in EVE Online will evolve through sales of vanity items, first in Incarna but later in-space features. The scope will be (and there‘s no design be done around this, we‘re just talking strategy now) that anything that doesn‘t affect gameplay directly can be, potentially, sold for PLEX or other means. Ideas that have come up include Incarna clothing and furniture, logos on spaceships and swapping out portraits. This is by no means a comprehensive list, nor is it a commitment that said items will be available for sale, I mention these as an example for what type of items we‘re thinking about."

    Zulu ends the blog entry by saying that CCP must react to the wishes of the market or risk becoming "the dinosaurs of the industry."
