looks like dazzle camo :P



Actually dazzle camo as an option would get a MAJOR thumbs up from me, i think that looks very cool (way bette rthan digial or smooth)

If dazzle is an option then dazzle me up a naga

I tried, I really did, but the Naga texure is a real PITA to work with, so i just did an Arbitrator instead (soooooo much easier). You like?

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Sometimes when I post, I look at my sig and wish that I'd follow my own god damned advice.

I think the greatest addition that could possibly be added is the ability to attach corpses to the hull of our ships. That would be awesome lol.

Ship decals = awesomeness.

Me and my corp friends have been waiting a year or more for this, and we are hoping for this so much.

If its Indy/For Isk it should only be accessible in low-sec, if its for Aurum it should only be available in faction sub-corporations like Roden / Duvolle etc.


If its painted directly onto Armor and a Hurricane uses projectile weapons, that paint job would fail, unless it was a coating like energized adaptive nano-membrane.


concern - XML upload-to-server-download-to-new-client times. If you and your gang are invading a null-sec area, the ships that you have never seen before with custom logos? They are gonna crash your client.

I've been away fishing for the weekend and have another 7 people to pick for wallpapers so if you've not included your ship and colour scheme do so now before I start :P

I want custom paint.

Also I will pay good money so that my spaceship emits rainbow colored exhaust (with fireworks sparkles).

Another great idea would be special ammo that does cool effects:

1. Bubbles... technocolor bubbles drifting through space. When they hit something they pop and leave a wet stain behind. Also, ship wash bays for cleaning off bubble juice residue.

2. Fireworks... who doesn't like fireworks? Different ammo flavors have different sparkly effects. Imagine the fun you and your guild mates can have entertaining, putting on a fireworks show outside Jita station in your drakes!

3. Civilians that scream is terror as they head down range. These too pop when they hit, only more red.

4. Turtles. I like turtles!

I don't think any of these special ammo types should cause aggression in high sec.

Well, it's your ship, but it is everyone's gaming experience. There are certain things that draws people to certain games. The look and feel of the universe and it's inhabitants (the recognizable aesthetic design differences between the factions), is a major part of that.

A streaker owns his own body. That doesn't necessarily mean he can or should use it for whatever purpose he like...

Not to worry - I do in fact hear your sarcasm here. I simply use you as my tool to promote my own viewpoints.
