You are not hearing what I say. I am not saying cosmetic sales aren't important to FD. I am saying your cosmetic purchases don't matter much to FD.Cosmetics sales matter enough to Frontier for them to have broken the game last year in an attempt to suck more money out of us through the introduction of Arx.
Yes, in terms of revenue cosmetics matter much less than game sales. But games cost serious money to develop. Cosmetics? Who do you think designs them? The Lead Designer or some junior whose salary comes to something less than the office cat costs in catfood?
Cosmetics may not be pure profit, but they're not far off, which is why games companies think they matter even if you don't.
Indeed! I don't know how I'd survive without my 20p's worth of free ARX every week (which I do genuinely appreciate, especially now as I'm on an ARX purchase strike, irrespective of whether I buy FS 2020, until we get some clear positive news over the future of VR).Imagine complaining about the addition of cosmetic currency earnable through playing the game
For PS4 and Xbox CMDRs, the introduction of ARX to replace Frontier Points did exactly one thing: give them free stuffIncidentally, if you genuinely believe that Frontier introduced ARX just so they could give us free stuff, then I own a valuable transpontine property on the East River in New York that you may be interested in purchasing.
So many silly comments to make my daft and pointless comment to within a daft and pointless thread....but digging up up Grundig. By Gad man that’s good work.Oh sorry forgot you're still rocking the 15inch black and white Grundig. Still better to be paying a 40 quid telly tax license than a colour one.
Well, neither does my purchase of Odyssey, if it comes to that.You are not hearing what I say. I am not saying cosmetic sales aren't important to FD. I am saying your cosmetic purchases don't matter much to FD.

I admit to total ignorance about the console versions of the game, but wot Idiot_Savant sez.I think it's capped 400 a week. I wanted to ingame buy paintjobs for my FC...It would take me a few weeks to get that...I bought arx...on PS4
Nice, but a bit crumbly.I bought 25000 ARX.
I want the HMS Wensleydale to look as spiffy as possible, 400 a week is OK for peasant paintjobs.
£12.99 is better 'value' for that amount of in game currency than most MT heavy games, including cosmetic only ones.....see Dead or Alive 6.
Never been to the Netherlands have you?I can forgive you for preferring a different platform for ED.
But no ketchup on chips.......that's a deal-breaker, Commander.
Keep in mind that if The Sisko is American chips = crisps not fries.Never been to the Netherlands have you?
We've got over a dozen different sauces to go with our fries.
Ketchup is one of the least favorite I think, unless it's in combination with mayonaise and onions.
It's not uncommon for tubers to follow the audience rather than letting the audience follow them.I certainly don't think it's the end of the world that ED-centric content creators are playing other games, but this is the second week I've seen a SC mining video from those I consider among the top 3 ED content creators. I'm glad they can enjoy other things considered vomit-inducing by this base while FDev scrambles to get a grasp on mechanics that should've been stable by year 3, but is still a problem heading into year 7.
Who cares if Planet Zoo does? Every stable owner has one horse that outperforms another, that doesn't mean they're contemplating shooting all the others.Pretty sure planet zoo is paying the bills for frontier too until elite comes up with something to say for itself
