Thanks. I would not be surprised to see more information released about how this work is going fairly soon.

Now some yahoo players is gonna come in here and say that it's different people workign on the ship painting, the art department. Well theyre part of it of course, but as the Dev post here demonstrated, theres a lot of coding going in to it as well.


I'm an EVE player too, and I too care about gameplay changes. That said, our graphics developers are graphics developers, and our gameplay developers are gameplay developers. I can say with certainty that none of the infrastructure work going on for these features have any impact on gameplay advances.


Thats good to know, man. Thank you!

(can ya maybe, you know like on lunch break or something with the other guys, be like "sooooo..... how bout them recon changes?")

Peace to Ya o/

I think the way CCP is doing it right now is not bad. It lets them gauge long term demand for destructible customization (you get killed you lose it.. unlike character customization).



Pink one has CCP Punkturis's name all over it.


I'd be happy if in the meantime they'd just release all those corp skins they've had since at least Fanfest 2012 P

Though I'm dubious as to whether 'demand for destructible customization paid for with real money' is going to pan out well for them.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that since SWG has customizable paint jobs for swoops/ground cars circa 2003/2004 and E&B had them for ships...and everyone else saw your paintjob...I'm just not going to buy the "wow this is complicated or would be a significant resource hit on people's rigs" argument.

If CCP wants to say "meh, we just don't feel like it" that's one thing. Saying "oh boy this is hard" is something else entirely.


It's not hard to do in principle, but when you have a large, complex system that's designed to work a different way, engineering such a feature requires proceeding deliberately and taking great care not to break anything.

What finished features regarding player ship customization end up looking like is a game design question that's out of my area, but (as that Fanfest presentation indicated) the engineering to allow it to happen is certainly in progress.


This is what I needed to hear ... I applaud CCP for taking this on at the very least I understand it is not easy. I just hope it is indeed in the future for eve online as no other game on the radar seems to fit the bill.

Pretty sure the Mad Elf would not have given two shlts about this.


Dude, he no doubt had to fly a recon ship to sneak in to the Temple of the King, so he could Kill the King.

Do you ever think about the way he caught the rainbow?


He is No Longer The Last In Line

...but a Rainbow in the Dark.

Props for knowing about his Elf days, most ppl dont.

Can't you poke others to do the same? :/

I would so put the Hello Kitty skin on my Rattlesnake. And I kind of hope they don't implement player created skins. I don't want to see stupid ponies flying around in space. Would be enough to make me vomit out my eyes and throw my computer out the window.

Player-created ship skins would do more to encourage PVP than all the sov, all the wormhole, and all the low sec changes combined. Ever.

There would be my little brony ships and hello kitty stuff, and everyone would want to kill it all with fire. Even the care bears get involved and start blowing up ugly stuff.


It would be beautiful.
