Super Kerr-Induced Nanocoatings (SKINs) Feedback thread

Can we expect to see more SKINs available through LP stores and drops in the future?
As far as feedback goes: The system works smoothly and it is something I spend Aurum on (and will buy more for). However, some things do feel a bit weird and like a rip-off.

Why do skins for the same ship have a (vastly) different price?

It does feel odd that there are some very similar SKINs that don't come with a bundled offer to begin with, such as for example Frigate and the two AFs based on it.

Ruthlessness is the kindness of the wise.

With the new ship killshot camera coming soon..

Can we have a small window showing the ship our ship targeting/focusing on added to the UI. Would be be cool to see a ship with a skin getting hit with missiles / explosions

yes I know u can use the look at ship command but its not really practical in the middle of a fight to stay zoomed in to enemy ships.

We are aware of this, especially for Caldari and Minmatar. Expect some new SKINs later this summer that hopefully work towards fixing this. :)

This is part of the problem too.

I'm not going to spend 15-30 dollars on a mediocre looking skin if stuff is in the pipeline that's going to look better (and probably be cheaper as well). This really is a symptom of the single-ship skin limitation at work again.

Any chance of some wicked-looking Mordu's Legion skins?

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

Hmm what happened to the aliastra SKINs? They used to be black and red now it's grey and brown. I paid isk and aurum for skins that changed and that don't look anymore like they did at first :/

Besides most skins are already grey and brown: roden, duvolle... all basically grey and brown.
And the Incursus used to have some funky red outline pattern and looked incredible. Now its just 2 red triangles on the side.

Why all these unnecessary changes? Cry

Also SKINs could be a nice way to reward Veteran Capsulers, and welcome new ones.

  • Veterans could get a special set of redeemable SKINs when passing the 20m , 50m , 100m , 150m Skillpoint marks. Maybe Race specific? Those who already have passed these SP marks would receive them retro-actively.

  • New players could be offered a small Skin ( I'm thinking shuttle skin ) as a reward for a lvl 1 mission. This could introduce SKINs early on in the game. And it would be a great opportunity to re-introduce the Orange and White Gallente shuttle that we all miss so much (with equivalents for other races aswell)

  • We need more SKINs for industrial ships. Miners and Haulers are the only ones to have time to stare at their ship so much, A camouflaged Venture? A brightly colored Noctis? Some raceStriped Hulks?

  • (Btw the barges need a redesign so badly)
