Instead of offering tech for money, you could offer skins or decals or exhaust colors! Everyone wants to be unique or show alliance fidelity through common combinations of cosmetics!

    Actually stats show that game can make alot of money from this only when game doing good. By good i mean getting more players into the game and we all know that kixeye loosing players instead so right now cosmetics do nothing for this game.

    Cosmetics will be good to have in game but the honesty from this is kixeye main goal will be to get all end game stuff out first then the other stuff can come last. That's just how it works around here although I do hope they can have it ready as they finish Axis/Xeno season soon.

    This would have saved a lot of the players that left due to the grand rebalance. You shouldnt be able to buy a win

    Cosmetics would be great for their income... But i think players want the game to be fixed rather than new stuff added... Unlike what kix says they clearly have zero clue how their actions really affect the community

    Yes I have been asking for this for a while. Also cool decorations and banners for our bases. Things like signs that say, "Go Away!" and "I Will Get You Back!"

    Thats 6 variable skins per ship for marks. Stored locally in the program we all have on our devices. If we all get " custom" skins that everyone can see they would have to be streamed for each ship. Big difference.

    I suspect you are rather new.  There will always be another faction.  I am not kidding.  There is no end game anymore, just force adaptation.

    Bp (although a pc game) has skins for its ships, and its a flash game... Im pretty sure mobile games can handle skins as some games already give them out

    Skins is not the issue... its the number of possible skins.... if every player gets a unique skin.....those have to be streamed... versus a few set skins that can be stored on the local device.... see the difference?

    lol no I am not new to this game and fairly know that kixeye do have a bucket list to do that haven't been touch yet so pretty just waiting for the game time to make some changes in game, also what make you strongly sure that there is no end game besides dating to there perspective ruling of how the games works on them? I am very interest to hear from you in great detail, please explain.

    I think what he meant by "unique" is the different preferences players would like in terms of skins... Provide enough of them (easily possible) and your easily going to find a massive variety of ship skins flying around

    This idea has been around since the Closed Beta so I wouldn't get your hopes up after all this time.

    Do you mean the bases that barely have any defense against the t6 stuff? Before they bring Cosmetics there are 8999 things to get fixed and balanced first.

    If you look back far enough into the forums you will find tonnes of threads about custom paint jobs/cosmetic's for ships (Search "Pink Apoc" and you'll see what I mean). The refit bay on the other hand is a more recent and more popular demand simply because it will have an actual impact on the game mechanics. If someone is asking for something these days 9/10 it's already been said and it's just been buried under the other junk threads.

    Refit bay have not had this name for long. First people just asked building que and 2 jobs in factory same time and soone. People just give it a name now. Before it was all there from the start just so many different ways but idea was the same so i think refit bay as idea is still most requested.
