Whoever came up with the prices should get a raise (at least considering the price on the monocle P, wich to this day still has to be the most retardedly priced thing ingame, and in mmo's in general )

I don't get why some people dislike the skins being available through AURUM. This is exactly what the AURUM system is good for--cosmetics. I personally hope CCP makes a ton of money off it.

Wow I can't wait to get a sweet rifter with a new paint job and new bonuses!

The easiest way I can think of to do this without completly changing how things work is to include a slot similar to rig slots for a paint job.

I can offer a solution for not making over 9000 Rifters, Coloured Destroyers and Iterons on market.

Let the skin be a "module" which fits into a "skin slot", you have the Rifter, you got the right skin, here you go you have your "Rifter Krusual edition". This way we will have one Rifter on market, and several "skin" modules.

There are two discussable options.

1. the skin is a module, with 50% to be dropped and looted on a shipkill
2. the skin is like a rig, and is destroyed on kill / repacking.

+ this idea can also work with the old colored ships, like the Ishukone Watch Scorpion, give the owners one ordinary Scorpion + the Ishukone skin (with no other ways of getting the skin in game, the price will not drop).

Take my money, Take my Money.


I do hope there will be a Premium Monocle Skin - as those will turn in to the Best Bait ships ever!

As a Mining co-ordinator when I play I often loan ships, and Keeping all my Loaned Retrivers and Covetors a paint job with the same as the Rorqual would be SWEET!

Someday I will have the time to play. For now it is mining afk in High sec. In Cheap ships

I like this idea. I prefer it to be more like a rig. It doesn't make sense for paint to drop from a wreck. Maybe even require a skill (train ship painting to V!).

simple still:

-make a ship editor in game that is tied to the fitting window
-the ship editor is only for fitting and aesthetic purposes
-the customization of the ship is around 3 features: two hull colors and 1 detail color with different patterns with selectable color palette
-modules have a similar system using 1 basic color, and 1 detail color for their markings
-LP/Aurum related skins can be loaded to this system same way as NEX store clothes are addd to the character editor of each player
-once in place the skin is permanent and the player can put them in case of having to replace the ship again
-there could be an isk cost in order to change or remove the skin of the ship, it doesnt need to be something expensive, it could be 5% of the build cost of the ship, even 1% would do......

Something I'd really like to see from this feature
perhaps we could have some beat up/worn down skins? I mean skins with rust streaks and bullet holes.

Some of us have flown single ships to hell and back (or at least to Hek and back), so give us the options to make our ships look like they've seen some wear and tear.

For the final feature i would like to see paintshop in station similar to the character customization, only this time we would be customizing the look of the ship. Another one ISK sink, and CCP fighting inflation.

A damage option would be so sweet,

a battle-torn patched up ship from small meteor strikes , or large caliber guns..

It would be very nice to be able to see a ships age..

"yey , thats a 10 year old charon.. or... that charon lived for 10 years.. and now its exploded"

With EVE Online: Rubicon 1.3, to be published on March 11, we introduce an exciting pilot project: ship skins for you!

With this pilot project we would like to see if you are interested in ship skin paint, figure out the demand and if we should go ahead and spend more time in developing a full ship paint project.

Read all about this pilot project in CCP Xhagen's dev blog Ship Painting Pilot Program.

Also welcome the return of the Police Comet!

Please note that this is a pilot project. If demand shows that you really like the ship paint, we will go ahead and implement a proper ship paint system. Your feedback is extremely valuable here!

Cool and stuff, but...

I CAN'T SEE SH*T of that paint job!
IT is too damned dark!

Amp up the lighting in this game for the love of God! :P

I don't belive in reincarnation I've never believed in it in my previous lives either...

Well it's cool You touch this topic but i think in the end ship skins should be something different.

One type when You can obtain manufacturers skins from LP stores (like those kador etc)

Second when player can customize ship as he want with a lot of colors, patterns etc. with ISK payment at the end with confirming changes. <<<< this is the system all are w8ing for.

Looks nice.

On the other hand I'm cautious about microtransactions in a sub game but then again can't wait for a pink thorax that can be named (in)approppriately. And police comets.

I really hope you do pursue this. And I really hope you then import all the current different various skins available for some ships as part of limited promotions (then different skinned Frigates and Destroyers that already exist) into the new system

Still annoyed that you havn't fixed TiDi yet (Its not a permanent solution its a temporary problem to avoid black screen, we shouldn't have to compromise between hardly playable to unplayable. After all you made it a numbers game) but yeah I've been waiting on ship skins for years.


I'm sure the graphic designers who worked on these skins will now turn their expertise in Maya 3D towards fixing TiDi.


*claps hands very slowly* way to state the obvs =) but instead of allocating resources into useless stuff they could spend more on certain areas like fixing TiDi... just saying.

Indeed. I dont generally fly safe. I have warped the same Damnation out of a mission at 2% hull at least three times I can think of.

It should not sot Arum. That is my opinion. But at least we are getting paint jobs to what ever color we want.
