Because Gold is a soft material and all the space debris that keeps hitting it are putting little dents in it.

You will fly the Golden Golf Ball, and you will ******* like it.





Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Pods are gold because minmatar slaves pee over the outside of them prior to undock.

Say... doesn't severe damage cause flames..? Solution! Blow up the pods, and they'll go faster! No, wait... That's not right, is it? What?

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

That would explain the gold/yellow color of all Amarrian ships. It must smell on the dock though.

Post with your NPC alt main and not your main main alt!

Everyone with a non-low-grade omega implant in should have a gold-colored pod so that people know they are cracking into something yummy.
