Hmmm... so where is my Ship Paint studio? If you let me paint my ship I will put a big cross there... where I want people to shoot my ship. And I want to put a big smiley on the front, exactly on the tip of the nose... Now do you know what level of fun this adds to the game? I can sit at a gate or outside the station and be entertained by the people creativity. On the other hand I will not blow up a ship that looks really good. So your paint could save your day Big smile

Update please? If this is dead I am very unhappy.

I'm with this guy.

Yes again. Making each new skin require a separate category and typeID is not at all scalable. It's simply bad implementation.

IMO, this is a feature you need to add to the game simply to keep it current and fresh in the face of competition. Making it into microtransactions and blueprint based, etc. is not a way to make people feel good about the overall product.

This guy's solution is way better. Doesn't kill the database model, and makes for true, free, prolific customization, which would be awesome for New Eden.

Maybe paint schemes can be a shader effect? Like making textures and particular colors darker (until completely black), false color, black and white, lighter (until completely white), messing with the RGB settings?


Break your skins into shadable components and let people go to town.

Honestly I really hope they do come out where you can completly customize your haul of the ship I want a Black and purple Harbinger and a few other ships customized. they seriously should have implamented this into the game long LONG ago and not to be mean but only giving the option to buy them for money right now is really mean, there needs to be a source to get them in game using ISK or something

Yes, an update with a projected timeline for implementation would be appreciated.

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

After the fanfest video....I really hope CCP doesn't let this go the way of 'the door' and the high resolution textures.

There's some mention of ship painting in the CSM minutes.

(At least initially, it's likely to be more like clothing/implants. Inject the license for the skin, and it's yours for the rest of time/the duration of the license. apply to as many ships as you want. No loss.)

Woo! CSM XI!

Saw painted Drednaughts on facebook, theyr look really cool. But as someone said in comments, they will be very expensive and the first shoted down :-)

What about next make painted Freighters?Big and beauty as Dreads, but lives mostly in hi-sec.Even if they are sucideganked offen I think they still have lower death ratio then Dreds, so maybe there will be bigger demand.

Industrial corporations color themes for industrial ships, that would look good.
Imagine someone flying in his Caldari Provisions freighter when being in a Caldari Provisions corp, it fits! \o/

We agree with this project.
For private or corporate distinction.

Police Comet, sorry, is a beautiful ship.
We would like to see other Police Comet Cruiser and so one.

But i am not sure it should be paid with AUR or PLEX.
ISK is enough for this service.
