It would be nice to have the ships manufacturer and date of manufacture on all ships produced in game.
If people id your ship it would give that information.
It would make the ships you’ve had for many years just that little bit more special and also bragging rights.
It would also give pilots of a PvP persuasion something to go after. A trophy kill.
Random pilot “I’ve had this ship for 12 years”
Random pirate “not anymore boooom”
Maybe also previous owners also. I could see a nice trade in ships owned by famous or infamous pilots.
The ship once repacked would keep the previous owner log and not be added too unless the ship is assembled.
Maybe keep it to a maximum of the 5 or 10 previous owners to stop people spamming the list.
Could inspire people to great popularity if they could cash in on that later.
Those who have ships that are old might keep them locked away and buy another as a daily driver increasing trade and manufacturing.
For those who have old ships let’s say 5 or 10 years old and are unskinned maybe make the age show on the outside of the ship. A few blaster holes or scraped and damaged panels.
Not sure if this has been posted before. But a nice idea to give a little more depth to eve.
