While I like obtaining SKINs for the various ships that I use I have found that SKINs for capsules aren’t worth purchasing since the capsule always reverts to its default each time you leave a ship.
You can switch ship to ship and the last known SKIN that was implemented for said ships will still be enabled, however, when losing or leaving a ship, the fancy SKIN you have for your capsule will not be enabled.
The SKINs are still available for the capsule, you just have to re-enable the SKIN for it to be applied. (You do not have to buy and activate a new license). It’s not a show stopper, just disappointing that you cannot up and pop into capsule mode with your favorite SKIN already defaulted and enabled.
CCP does not consider this a bug but rather a ‘quirk’ that is a behavior working as intended.
Still, it’s annoying enough that I wouldn’t consider purchasing capsule level SKINs. All other hulls are open game :-)
