As I’ve received the question a few times now, let me clear something up: We are not taking the Classic body parts away! Neither Original, nor Hourglass, nor Male, nor any of the separate hands and feet.
In the notecard I mention a date after which I had planned to take it out of the vendor (at which point the version in your inventory would continue to work and anyone who bought the body could still get a Classic body upon request). I’ve decided to change this. In the next update, I’ll remove the date from the notecard and the Classic body will remain packed in with the Redux body far into the future.
I’m writing this blog now as the update is still a little while away and I didn’t want this to be unclear for folks.
To clarify the original date a little; when I wrote the notecard with Caine, we figured a year from release would be a long enough timeline for people to happily switch to BoM. It was never our intent to force people to do so, and again, the Classic version was to be still available upon request!
To restate this again – Classic isn’t going anywhere and will remain packed in with the Redux body for anyone who prefers to use Classic.
Classic will also continue to work for as long as you have it. We are not and CAN not remove it or make it stop working in any way.
