if you have it in the cargohold of the ship you are in , it will go to your redeeming queue when the great transformation happens( DT during deployment)

Looks like there was some insider knowledge on this one!

Blog released at 17:00 today.
Huge Spike in purchases on the 20th April.

Bit of a mismatch there.

I hope there is to be an investigation as to who is abusing their powers?

Speculation is one thing, but a mass purchase the day before a dev blog announcing that availability will be stopped immediately....

heh, you have "Ishukone" misspelled as "Iskukone" on that screenshot.

also, shame Quafe is like the only SKIN I'd like to apply to my ships and I only fly Minmatar, so I guess no skins for me.

I mean...they explained how it was going to work ahead of time and the expansion is coming out next week. Seems like pretty straightforward speculation to me.

Um, the SKIN program has been talked about for months. Literal months.

I do not dispute that one bit. But the sudden "Re-Interest" in purchasing all the skins. The day before an official announcement like this, is at the very least... *Slightly* Suspicious

It's a stupid question, but as such things are often overlooked, I gotta ask: What about Skinned Ships/Skin BPCs located in containers in stations/cargoholds/etc, will they also be converted normally?

Also, hypothetically speaking, if a Skin BPC is placed into an achored container that you or someone else anchored in space prior to this patch, what would happen to that Skin, who would get the ownership of the Skin token?

In regards to time limited SKINs: "we want the SKINs you find in-game to retain their ISK value by preventing market saturation over time"... so is this admitting that all the permanent SKINs will lose their ISK value over time due to market saturation?

Maybe the solution to the "losing value over time due to oversaturation" could be fixed by not making them permanent to the account, but instead making a Rig slot or a new Module slot for the SKIN to be applied to each ship instead? And therefore it would be permanent on that ship instead of the account, thus not causing market oversaturation and value decline.

There were plenty of edge cases when we were writing this script but i think we got it right in the end.

The owner of container will always get the skin ( Corporation / Character) unless it is in a courier contract(shrink wrapped) then it will go to the issuer of the contract.

Can we please now see some more skins coming from the LP stores? Even if they are bound to a minimum standing to the corp to allow use in those cases.
