It's just a bit of fluff, but potentially involves a lot of work on the part of CIG. Could we get a personal character museum of some kind?

If you've played the Skyrim mod Familiar Faces, you'll have some idea of the kind of thing I have in mind. Each of the characters we create have the potential to have a lot of work put into their appearance and to accumulate a lot of character and history as they progress through the game. All of that (aside from personal wealth, minus death tax) stands to be lost upon their final 'death', so it would be nice to be able to take a snapshot of our character at some point during their life (or auto-snap when they buy the farm permanently) for posterity. I see it represented as a Hall of Fame sort of deal, probably located in our hangar. You could have a pedestal or some such and a model for each character, along with a plaque or console for you to record their history, if you're so inclined, along with their age, the time, manner and location of their death, etc. Could be fun, especially for the roleplayers.

    Seems like a nice way to commemorate lost characters for posterity, should one want to. Might be nice to be able to place a 'statue' of your actual living character in places as well. Perhaps more egotistical org leaders could commission over-sized statues of themselves to be placed in the org hangar. ;)

    It doesn't sound like it would be too difficult to implement in some fashion or another.
