Part of EvE onlines problem was that they basicaly screwed upThey originaly planed to have a broad line of items at launch (something on the order of 30-40 Items). . . and when they realised that they were not going to be able to get them all readyFor example, a Glitch with the Carbon Engine actualy keeps some items from rendering properly unless you have something comprable to a Gforce 4XX or better due to how Carbon forces the GPU to try to render some objects as aposed to the CPU doing it nativly,(Bascialy, they were trying to avoid naked avatars) Others just were not ready due to cliping issues with the modles(basicaly a problem with how the program adjusts the outfit to your body type and considering how flexable the Avatar design is(you can ajust breast size, shape AND location on the body(within human paramiters) for example for both male and Fm characters. it was posible to make a male with "Superbodybuilderbuild" have a shirt that cliped under his chest on Sisi) On top of that, the EVE developers realy consider Plex to be kind of "Gold money" to the ISKs "Silver" money,(basicaly the supply of plex increases at around 13-15% a month while plex used (for gametime) has gone up at a rate of 7-10%, all while plex has increased in price over time, yes even with the latest blowout in plex pricess from this botch) and wanted the Aurum to more or less "Stablise" things by more or less stabilising the price of Plex by linking it to ingame items that could be bought with Aurum from the NPCs and then sold for ISK to other players..the problem from the start was that it would still be cheeper in game to just buy the plex yourself and get the items, and not have the hastle of having to go find the items in the marketplace from someone who was selling for the least markup on what they payed for it, then fly out to pick them up or pay another ISK surcharge to have them delivered to you whenever someone could be arsed to actualy deliver the items. (oh and have enough isk to pay the minimum 110% of value colateral that you need to keep them from just pocketing the items you want delivered, never mind that most haulers dont haul anything with over a billion in colateral. . ..over all there was a lot about this that was aparently not thought out, and or not done to plan.
