The only reason I'd want one would be to create a mini Reokoe for my SDPlus Ebenezer... emotion_kirakira

There is another, more legitimate, way that the custom SD+ dolls could have a gold-sink factor, if a relatively small one. I would not be at all surprised if some people buy the item that lets you order a doll, and then sell that item in the Marketplace for ridiculously gigantic piles of gold. And there will be people who will buy.

Say hello to the 2% listing fee. Sell the Custom SD+ Maker item on the MP for 500,000,000 = 10,000,000 gold sunk.
That's one zero too many there wink
You think people wouldn't buy their own SD+ doll for 500 million?

I think multiple people would.

How many people has 500 million in pure? Also while selling stuff in the exchange I had multiple people try to sell me that doll for 60-70 mil, and I wasn't even asking to buy anything at all.

Right now I'd value it at 40 mil.

Ill say it again. People generally do not buy the big items like that from the marketplace. They use the exchange. 10m is 10m after all. Also I dont think it should be over 200m personally, and I would only pay 100m IF I could get a separate pose of some kind. Just two dolls poses, no thanks.

User ImageIt's barely 50 mil buying from another user 3nodding That seems to be the going rate.

I've already changed my avatar 2 times since pixeling my own SD doll yesterday emotion_facepalm There's no way I'd ever be happy with 2 permanent poses.

50 is 1$-100k rate so that is more then fair. It would be more if you could, for example make your own different color queen of solair hair or something. Just because there's not a lot of people willing to shell out 500$ (Also I didnt bother looking up the price, because im not interested in just dolls ; wink

What promise? We never promised that users wouldn't be able to obtain SD+ Dolls of themselves. We only said that we weren't sure how likely it would be. If you have proof that there was a promise of this, I'd certainly love to see it.


Naturally I don't have the link to where it was said. lol This was back when SDPlus dolls first came out, which was eons and eons ago now. And since I wasn't the first one to bring this up publicly in the forums, and the gaia friends I talk to on Skype remember this being said as well, I'm not imagining it or pulling false information out of my a**.

But whatever. *shrugs*

I just bring it up because it wasn't the first time I heard this claim go around that has, thus far, been unsubstantiated. The last time someone brought it up they went through all the ATAs and found out that they were wrong, that we had never promised such a thing. Suffice to say, it's more than possible that given it was so long ago, the details may not be as clear as they once were. We see a lot of people saying that we promised x, y, or z but can't give us any evidence of where we did prove this so we can either rethink the situation we put ourselves in, or just simply say, "Yeah, we promised it at this point in time when it made sense, times have changed and we can't hold to that promise anymore."


If I had the time and/or patience I'd look for where it was mentioned, even if I had to go years back (which I would). But even so, times might change but there are some things that shouldn't be done. The only thing I see that's changed is that Gaia is either getting purely greedy or is desperate for money to stay afloat. Why else would you put the halo in the cash shop or open that new eyesore of an "exclusive" club? Which is laughable in itself, I might add.

Another thing a lot of people recall is that MCs were NEVER supposed to be released. Has that changed too, now? Or was that also never a true statement to begin with? Honestly, I've been here for nine years and this is the first time I've seen such things. And quite frankly, I'm not pleased with the general direction things are flowing these days. But what does that matter? As long as some users are willing to kiss a**, that's all that matters these days it seems.

Unpopular opinion, of course, but it really feels like you guys just don't care anymore. And quite frankly, it's been fun but this site is no longer enjoyable. And it makes me really sad to admit that, because I've never dreamed of giving up on this site. But, as you said, things change and I don't feel like being here anymore. But I'm also too stubborn to let go, despite the fact that the user base has degraded since the opening of verge. Did you see the way some users were acting because they got in while others didn't? It was really appalling...

And while I do love SDPlus dolls, having your avatar to wear ON your avatar is redundant. Especially for $500 regardless of whether or not it was stated that it wasn't supposed to happen.
this. is. amazing. I have been here for 9 years as well... never have I encountered all of a sudden so much cash for items s**t until in the lost couple of weeks. Nevertheless, I love Gaia and love supporting it... I just don't know if I can do that forever.... I think most user already are starting to just stop with this site.

A full size version? Meh. But a TINY version of me? I'd be all over that! It's like having your own action figure!

If I were to have a little SD+ Doll of myself, I'd be happy to just carry it around with me. cat_3nodding
And since I'll be immortalized this way, I'll be more than happy to see if there are people out there who would add me to their collection if its possible to have copies of my custom doll! cat_blaugh

I'm feeling giddy about this... cat_whee
... but I'll have to wait until I'm ready. I want to go on a few more item quests first and then make two outfits for SD+ poses. cat_ninja
