Cosmetic unlocks

Would new players stay for a longer time if one could spend points on cosmetic enhancements after gaining levels? Leveling up would result in experience points that could be used to acquire skins, alternative models and new weapon graphics for example.

I don't mind the idea either way, I'll just point out the obvious issue: this would affect ZK's image, people would perceive this as a pre-step for introducing an ingame $$$ shop.

some other players have posted personal skins and pay for them. but to add stuff they want u to go learn how to do lua and do stuff yourself. it's hard to code and all that stuff. but can devs give us shop so people buy stuff and give special things. they will earn extra cash.

FIrankAdminAlcur isn't talking about money (at this scale trying to pay the devs would cause more harm than good). He's talking about levelling up gaining skins.

This is generally a decent idea, but:
  • cosmetics shouldn't harm readability too much so they would mostly be pretty lame.
  • somebody would have to create art and we are a bit artist-starved.

I don´t know why my suggestions to introduce lootboxes to zk are ignored for 3 years now!

GBrankdyth68, yes, I meant unlocks that don't cost any money.

PLrankAdminSprung, I suppose I could make a new Flea model because I think it wouldn't need to be complex. I know that doesn't seem like much, but at least the overall shape could be very different. However, what about the confusion the new look would cause? Other players would not recognize the new model immediately although there should still be something to justify the name "Flea".

Edit: I edited the first post to make it more clear with regard to the lack of spending any money.

well, I think it would be a great idea to introduce cosmetic only paid items to the game, great way to make some $$$ without changing the game balance or anything, just pay to look cool feature. It would be a level up from the donate symbol people get, now you can get your own sorta cool and useless skin too :)

But I still believe having these exterior features be a paid feature is a great way to fund the game without any real downsides.
