With the next release on April 28th we will see a major change coming to ship skins. The current pilot program will be replaced by the new ship SKIN system.

This new SKIN system will have introduce permanent skin licences that will be injected to characters (somewhat similar to skillbooks) and that will not get destroyed when you lose your ship. Additionally the usability of the whole SKIN system is considerably improved. And we will get 102 new SKINs in this first batch.

Check out the previews of all the skins and read dev blog Ship Customization: Time to Show Some SKIN.

So if I understand this correctly skins you can only get from fanfest promotions like the Quafe Dominix will now be available much more easily?

I'm really glad that we've been able to continue putting so much work into this project since the first pilot program. I hope you guys are looking forward to this feature as much as I am!

The FanFest skins are ones we use in lots of different promotions and can at this time only be gotten those ways. The difference is more in their usage rather than how they are gotten for those skins.

Yes but since its a permanent skin now what's to stop you from just repainting a bunch of megathrons unless again I'm missing something here

Your license is permanent, if you leave the ship, it will turn back into the base version.

The new skins work like skills in most ways. Just as your skills stop affecting a ship when you eject from it, your skins no longer appear on ships once you eject from them.

And you just can't hide it. You are about to loose control and you think you like it?

I'm not wild about the permanent injection implementation decision, but I will admit I'm a little excited to see this new system in action.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

Yes they are.

So the prices are going up drastically? The chart shows Incursus Aliastra SKIN being worth more than a plex at 4300 AUR.

Yes, as is their value. Right now they only last as long as the ship they are applied to does. After this release they last forever.
