Well I guess I have a few thoughts.
I dont think it would be as bad as it seems… I did mention CCP making selectable skins from which we choose from, like the medals? so I cant see any rainbow hello kitties, or nazi signs, or penis’s flying in space. The models could be easily rendered, just as they are now. It wouldnt be a lifetime of work, no more than it is to keep the game itself running and attracting new players. if art and graphics is a huge selling point for CCP, then I think it could be a good idea to further explore this idea. It could be made to benefit both the players and the developers.
And the purchased skins, well, they look as they look, they are unique, so who ever wanted those skins would pay for them. Im just saying, there isnt much ART or color to it… I mean we get three to five choices now, thats cool, bu I am encouraging taking it to the next level.
I fail to see much difference between the idea that skins would be used to troll people, and the customized avatars we can make. did ccp make penis tattoos so I can have on on my cheek? no. will they make penis skins for my tengu? no… to me, thats silly. but if everyone REACTS to ■■■■ that everyone else does, then hey, why bother playing Eve at all?
CCP wouldnt have to charge 10,000 plex. it could be reasonable. it could be a loot drop, like a blueprint but its a custom skin, you get to choose from patterns and asign your own colors.
im surprised this idea isnt more popular. most games let you c
ustomize your gun, your outfit, any supplies you bring, etc etc. I even get pain on my gun in bf4… I can choose custom logos, etc… Im saying this cause it could be used as a selling feature for omega perhaps. and that could be all you need to get the skin as well, just be an omega.
Id love to see various patterns and colors we can add to our ships.
