    Unless this paint job crap takes the place of new content being released in the game in raids to allow those of us whom are tired of wasting money on this game, I have to say NO! As far as my alliance and I are concerned this new paint job feature should be used to allow us moderate coiners to catch up to heavy coiners on ship builds and allow ships to be usable longer by taking priority in the raids as top prizes only, because God knows we'd love to just be able to take a breather once every other month rather than see a new hull and new limited hull every freaking month! There you have it words of wisdom for your team straight from BP, use them well.

    In my opinion, the ships in game could use new paint jobs, looking at the same colored ship every day gets dull after a while.

    In the story, the world was almost wiped out and nations do not exist anymore.

    If ships can be rendered with Stage 3D then I would like a shiny chrome material with reflective properties for a paint job.

    I think it could be cool. But a couple things need to change with skins.

    1) Sure they are cool and all, but don't apply them in the shipyard.... make a new building for the sole purpose of painting your ships. Then people won't be upset when they go to add something that takes an 5 hours to do an entire fleet of. Or better yet, add it to the Naval Lab, or Tactical Lab or even the Dock since that is where all of our ships are located. It also allows you to change skins while you are in the middle of a 20+ day build.

    2) They don't all need to be stupid hard to get..... 300 wins in the FAT for a paint job is a little excessive.... so is 20 mil raid points.... those are for the over achievers, I understand, but really? 20 mil points for the Swedish Atlas? It also doesn't help that the skins are limited to one kind of ship (blueprint vs limited). For example there was no point in me going for the Swedish Atlas because I have a fleet of Harlock Carriers built instead and I am not going to spend 3 months building another fleet just to make them yellow and blue... Don't turn them into something for the super wealthy or over achievers, at first it sounded like a "fun" extra thing for everyone to enjoy. But most people only have the standard and retro skins.

    I have to say no based on the trend that model have taken.

    Would i be interested in a Nation flag model, yes. Would i pay 20 mil raid ptn, 300 FAT win or 10$ for it, no.

    If you intend to put this out, make sure the prize fits.

    A 1 mil, 5 FAT win, 0.99 $ prize tag would fit more then the insane prize you guys have been putting them at. Im pretty sure that, excluding the 400 million raid ptn hackers/mega coiners, very few regular player have trully opted for the paint job you ve release based on basic insane price for them.

    lol

    Umm I am all for it as an optional extra without any bonuses other than just the paint jobs. Keep the cost down and would be cool, WITH an option for custom jobs at a seriously high price.

    just another way for kixeye to make a buck. paint jobs in general are a dumb idea. we don't need 101 different colors for ships.

    No unless it is free to get and takes 0 time from the ship yard. Otherwise it is a waste.

    no because i have tried everything, followed all the instructions , and i am still unable to equip these models to ships, the way i see it they just took away my cool looking r5 and r10 models and forced the original dull models back on me.
