Once I activate a ship skin am I able to unactivate it to resell or will it always be on my character?

Many thanks...

It's tied to your character.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

My choice of pronouns is based on your avatar. Even if I know what is behind the avatar.

The point is: they're shiny and for sale, like a lot of other cosmetic microtransactions

They're there to make your ship look shiny or to market PvP.

Have you seen a Helios? I would spend any amount of isk to make it look even a little bit better.

Beauty is to be found in how something works, not how it looks. In that regard there are many things I do that the Helios is better suited to than the other ships in the game so it is in fact a 10 out of 10.

Says you. It was infinitely more beautiful when it used the Maulus model...and of course they had to change it to the Imicus. What a cruel, cruel joke.

no you can't. once its activated its part of your character, you can not deactivate it and sell it.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Use the red skins to make ships go faster.
Atleast the skins are permanent after you use them, so even if you lose the ship, you can skin the next one again.

Oh I use it all the time and I think it's one of the best explorers there is, which is why it sucks that it's so ugly. Most of the time when I dock in it I immediately change ships so I don't have to look at it anymore.
