    Idk if anyone has come up with this idea before, but I think it would be awesome if we can have Skins for ships.

    They can be introduced during events like during winter glacian skin, during Halloween grimm skin would be lot of fun to have different skins in game!

    Also can be on sale for pearls or $.

    Haha, yes people have suggested this before. Like 50 times. First like 2 years ago.

    Have the devs done anything about it? Haha, nope. Will the devs ever do anything about it? Haha, I doubt it.

    But the idea is still nice.

    Obviously devs prefer players to use their money on a perk they might not like
    Then they will spend money to get the right perk
    so instead of the 5$ they will spend 20$ to get the intended perk
    compare that to someone spending 5$ on a skin they like
    that player doesnt need to spend more money coz they already got the skin
    so if skins come they will come in a box of five titled "chance to get any of these skins"
    so the player will spend 15$ to get their skin
    its sad but true

    Yup that's so true, maybe it's better we don't have any skins in this game :D

    Skins are awesome of course but could mess up the easy identitification of ships. We know a shooter from a defender with ease now. So I am torn. Maybe a compromise we could personalize our ships with stickers, add a custom flag, or paint specific accessories on our ships, like the tire on the defender which would still leave the defender big and blue.

    They can put RNG on it as long as we can sell skins/stickers, etc if we get dupes.

    Others and myself have asked for this over half a year ago, maybe a year. If they charge a dollar for these things for example, they can make some money and it is something most people can afford, quite the opposite with 99,99 dollar deals.

    They would probaly introduce skins as a paid item in the next few updates.

    We were sort of assuming that once they consolidated the look of each ship from 7 down to 1 that would make it easier for skins.... but months later, nothing.

    I was hoping that was the also the case, but I honestly believe now it was just a cost cutting measure so that they didn't have to design and code 7 different designs for Interceptor/Reaper/Guardian.

    I would prefer they take back their 3 new boats and give us the Mk1 through Mk7 designs again.

    True... at the time we didn't know about the new ships, the consensus was that it made it easier for skins... not that it was a measure of laziness (aka lack of design resources).
