Would it might be possible for the art teams to create texture and skin mods for customization.
Armour skin mods to make armor look more unique. eg. ( Roman Legionary armor skin, or Knights Templar skin, Banded mail skin, or Ring Mail)
Buildings could also benefit from a players desire to customize. eg.( Different texture/skins for walls, or building mods)
They could purchase the from the LIF team, much the same way players do in Mine Craft. While not giving anyone an 'advantage' the game would benefit from the income by just letting players 'be different'.
Thank you for listening. What are you thoughts?
