I’m a new player in EVE Online and love the game! However, I would like to propose a couple cosmetic changes to the game that will not only benefit the players but also CCP as well.
The ability to import our own corporation logos into the game. I belong to a corporation and we have a really cool out-of-game corporate logo that would look great in-game and make the game more immersive! I realize there are many more corporations than alliances, but this would add to the immersive quality of the game. I imagine a lot of manual labor would be involved in this undertaking (processing, approving, etc). If CCP can’t devote the resources to such an endeavor, then maybe crowdsourcing the labor to dedicated volunteers would be feasible (like Project Discovery)?
The ability to customize our ship skins. Players spend a lot of time at the beginning of the game customizing their characters and then never really looking or interacting with the portrait. On the other hand, we spend the entire game looking and interacting with our ships in space all with a limited number of available skins.
a) CCP could create special “body shop” hangars in npc stations that would allow players to apply different custom paint jobs and decals to their ships. These ship paint jobs could be monetized by CCP.
b) It would also be great if corporations/alliances were allowed the ability to create official ship skins with their colors and logos. As an example, I can imagine flying my Heron with corporate colors and our corporation logo in place of where the Caldari logo is currently located on the ship. Again, CCP could monetize these corporation/alliance ship skins and sell them in-game just like regular permanent ship skins. Or maybe charge a change fee to apply the skin to the ship since intellectual property may be involved?
Let me know if you think any of the above ideas are actionable and if I can in any way be of assistance. I would love to see them implemented in-game!
Thank you for your time and I look forward to the responses,
