It is a fact that what players enjoy a lot in video games is personnalization of their things. It is for sure that in EVE lot of people would enjoy personnalizing their ship with their own (or proposed) decoration and painting... It would be great that a corporation would impose to their corp member to have a logo on their ship. It would be great that a corporation will suggest main colors for the corp members ships or would not.

We are really waiting for such thing, lets give us a chance to personnalize our ships, one way or another. Thank you for listening my ask. Very Happy

I think this would be a great idea. There is no way possible that we could make our own skins, not just because of the lag and bandwidth issue, but content (Just look at the most common type of creations that were made in Spore. various parts of the human anatomy...), but if there was a giant predetermined set of skins, patterns, and colors to choose from, it could easily be implemented with hardly a touch of lag, if at all.

Lets say, that each model had 10 skins, 20 patterns per skin, and 3 color options, out of say, 10 colors. The game already loads up models once they enter the grid. So lets take a Drake for example. Attached to that Drake, would be the details of its skin, pattern, and colors. It would really be no different, perhaps less so, than typing a message into local chat. One person sending a message to 20, 30, 50, 1,500 people.

It could be formated thus: 5.14.3.7.6. 5th skin, 14th pattern, Primary color 3, Secondary color 7, Tertiary color 6.

That's less resources than it takes to transmit all those thinly veiled scam offers in Jita.

I say let's wait and see how the game handles loading up several hundred people in Jita 4-4 station when Incarna releases...THEN let's talk about ship skins.

I say this for one reason...load times...when Incarna releases we are gonna see how the system handles loading so many different skins, costumes and whatnot. If it can handle that then it would likely be able to handle custom skins on ships.

I would also only support the idea if the personalized skins are something that can be turned on and off. That way when I get into that large fleet battle I can shut them off and not worry about the extra lag time and load on my PC it would cause.

Otherwise...yeah...not a new idea...been something players have been crying about for some time now.

We need more people to support this thread.

Customizable ship graphics, is way better, than 2800/400000=0.007% of the game population's opinion; that we need to fix 0.0 fleet battle lag, more than we have already.

I mean really, isn't 3 years of dedicated development on Nullsec enough? ..and they just keep whining.

They get:

Sov Systems (Better ISK Farming; through better upgrades)
Titan Redux (Funny, how they're the only ones who can afford Titan's; let alone, chew through them like Ham on mashed potatoes)
Super Cap's (Note: Only usable in 0.0, like Titans)
The Best of Incursion (Ultimate in ISK Farming in 0.0; which is why they never beat an Incursion)
Station's (Also, only in 0.0; and now, they want to blow them up)
Ultimate Moon Mining (Best moon's, available only in 0.0; and now they have enough ISK, to say nerf 'em. ..Or, more, and better means to make ISK.)
Best of Planetary Interaction (Everything is made better in 0.0, to appease the Nullsec crowd; else, they'd have far mor to complain about*.)
New Server's, and much work on Lag reduction. (Oddly, this only really benefits 0.0 Fleet Battles; and Nullsec's favorite Highsec hangout: Jita.)
No rules, (Save their own), No Concord, Bomb's, Interdictor's, Drone Fighters and Fighter Bomber's, and Mobile Warp Disruptors.
No Standings required for POS's; and no cost for Faction Charter's.
The ability to secure space, and prevent unathorized entry; through greater Force Projection, Jump Gates, and Titan Bridges.
Every reason, to encourage player's; to join Fleet's, Corp's, and Alliances in 0.0
No standings required for Jump Clones; with them installable at player facilities.
The ability to say, unequivocally; who gets access, to all these benefits.
Rentspace.
No requirement for Wardec's.
More ISK, through better Ratting, Exploration, and Complexes.

Its because if you really think about it, nullsec space is what EVE is truly about. Ultimate freedom to do what ever you want, whenever you want. The legendary exploits of null alliances is what draws new players to EVE, in the hope that someday they may be able to get in on the action.

Have a problem with our ISK making capacity? Come take our systems from us. I would truly laugh my ass off if I saw a fleet comprised of angry QQ'ing carebears coming to take a single null system.

You want those juicy 0.0 incursions? come get them, we sure as hell are not stopping you. Hell, I bet if you rented the incursion systems from the alliance holding sov that they spawn in, during the time they are active, you would be able to do them as well. And, if you are so scared to make the trip, hire a merc corp to escort your incursion fleet there, and to man the gates for protection during your care bear time.

I mean, sure, a obnoxious neon pink nyx with decals of human anatomy splashed all over it would get a few laughs, but it is hardly something worthwhile. Hell, I honestly think Incarna is a waste of time, and will be a flop. Sure, ill try to walk around naked for a bit in my toon, but after five minutes of that, I doubt I will ever use it again.

TL;DR - Less QQ, moar action.

Good idea on paper, but it wouldn't take long before we see a bunch of ***** logo's, goatse pics, and whatever else stupid people can think up to be charming.

Interesting idea. There are a number of issues that I would probably triage this somewhere after major game mechanics are addressed.

I fully understand that not everyone is an inhabitant of null sec, but with our different structures, we ofcourse will have different priorities.

This is still something that would be a great addition to the overall gameplay.

Fully customizable skins isn't an option due to 100% chance of EULA violations such as graphic images.

HOWEVER

As a link was shown earlier demonstrates, pre-set skins would be a good start. Effectively layered skins - pattern, color 1, color 2, color 3, two layers, adjustable to 'zones' on ship.

An example:

Rifters - they have 5 zones: Two wings, one cockpit, and the two front pieces. Each of these could be colored a certain way. Want a 5 colored Rifter? Go for it. Want striped wings (a preset pattern) with solid black cockpit and front? Sure.

There is ONE problem here: T1 vs T2 ships often have minimal, if any, hull difference. So two similar paint jobs render a t1 and t2 ship near identical. Not that overview wouldn't tell you that's a wolf, not a rifter, but it is something to consider.

Support, with the caveat others have mentioned of not allowing users to provide images (or requiring image approval similar to alliance logos). I would suggest, too, that corps be able to define a roundel that could be used instead of a logo.

I would also note that even if this is not implemented, T3s should be able to choose which color scheme they want to use; a HAM Legion, for instance, would look far better in the Khanid colors it would logically have.

With regards to Cassus' comment: Highsec players should definitely have some of the features available to nullsec players. Let's start with adding destructible station services; you want to fit a ship in Jita? You may need to rep up the fitting service first.

Because its a great idea !! :)) Lets have nice ship with a corp design or a solo design... even with predefined skins, it doesnt matter if there is a lot of combinations.

Not supported.. Will add to lag due to having extra stuff to load on grid, plus I don't care to see what bad taste in ship design u all have.

You don't know that for certain, especially now that CCP are actively working on it. I mean they must have made some kind of breakthrough in that area because we all know the one thing they really hate is lag.

And it's not going to allow freely designed paint jobs, just a different texture or two and a corp/alliance logo on the hull.
