So I also got a question about this yesterday, and contacted billing and marketing.

There's a few different skinned special edition Catalysts rolling out with limited run Game Time Cards that are available from several regional retailers.

Basically, if you use the GTC to add game time to your account, then you get the option to redeem the ship. However if you convert the GTC to PLEX, then the offer to redeem the ship isn't available.

Hopefully this clears things up :)

Are any of these new retailers going to be put on the official resellers list? https://secure.eveonline.com/etc.aspx

That's the plan, yes.

We'll be posting something more detailed about these ships around next week, so stay tuned. Smile

It would be sweet if once you owned a skin, you could apply it to any base ship in your fleet.



Well, the prices of the skinned ships would just plummet, and their novelty be practically nonexistent.

Would actually be rather boring, ironically.


Some level of paint customization would be cool. Maybe something like this:

1) When you go into fitting (or a station with a Paint Shop service) you could tweak the color/look of your ship for a fee)
2) If you have trained a skin skill - you can save the settings for sale on the market in a package that has a limited number of uses and is specific to a ship type - train the skill higher and you can skin larger ships.

Anyway, I play a lot of Borderlands 2 when I am not in Eve and I like the skin feature there. Would make cool loot too.



Yes I can see this working for a 'personal' skin or something. But if my Interbus Shuttle becomes prolific.........I may have to take action.Smile

Booo!

Nasty Ebil Moneygrabbing CCP!

You'll force us to pay actual money for a limited edition Important Spaceship?

Good move ;)

It might be a new moniker, not pay to win, but pay to swag ;)

This is sorta how it's always been. I got that Interbus Shuttle by shelling out for the box edition.

Nothing is different. Nothing has changed.

If I was a guy from CCP and absolutely definitely had to do it, I'd start with small corp/alliance logos on ships, similar to those on existing military aircrafts, maybe for a small fee paid in station.

Don't get me wrong, I really like to do a bit of personalization with characters and other similar stuff in games, but on the other hand I've seen enough of stuff like pink-on-yellow guardsmen in DoW and the like. No, thanks.

This would have been nice to know sooner and should have been detailed on the sail page at greenman gaming. What?

I put in a buy order for 350 mil and it filled. That's a lot better than the 3.5 bil it was going for yesterday.
