# 1 Ship customization!
12-19-2012, 02:25 PM
So not sure if this has been posted before, but I really really want this idea to happen.

I want set visuals on space sets to be unlocked so you can have them active on your ships even when not using the set. Like how you have omega visuals but have full maco on ground. Also I think it would be cool to have color customization on some of the set visuals. Example: Aegis set would look awesome in red on my fleet patrol escort.

I would pay for the option to have this done. Pvpers may not like it, but most pvp with disabled visuals to hide what you're really packing anyways.

I figure the ship is you so I want more customization like I have with the ground tailor. Please!

I've mentioned it a few times to other players and they all support the idea. It would bring something new to the game having more uniqueness to ships.

Another example: love the reman look not a fan of the teal color or the set, and so would love to use a set that helps my build and look awesome in red coloring instead of teal.

I sooooo very endorse this. ANYTHING with added visuals should be toggleable. We know it can be done, because that's already how ground stuff works. If I can turn off the visuals for my ground toon's armor, I should be able to do the same for my ship's shields.

MACO shields look great, but there's a reason I customized my paint scheme. Not to mention when you get a piece of kit that just looks straight up ugly. I effing hate having these stupid borg zits all over my ship, but I can't afford to part with the assimilated module console. I spent an entire ship tier on both factions flying with a Jem Hadar set, and could not WAIT to replace it due to that horrible eyeball-rotting shield hull pattern.

The Reman shields are very hit-and-miss too: on some ships they look fantastic, on others one-note and toylike.

Glad everyone likes the idea.

@connectamabob: you can right click the assimilated console and left click on disable visuals getting rid of the "Borg Zits".

Can you guys help spread the word of this I figure if we get enough posts it may get looked at by a dev and possibly happen.

Thanks!

Yes, a thousand times yes. That would be an awesome addition to this game.

what a coincidence (well there's no such thing as coincidences, but anyway)! I was actually thinking of this idea for a couple of months now.
Only MY idea was to have a tool to create original ships. Of course we would STILL use resources to pay for the final product after all the engineering has been completed. Kind of like a base project only cheaper.
But if we DON'T have one overall payment, we could have several. Like one payment of resources for the 'saucer' section, one for the hull, one for nacelles, etc....
that way we can create unique alien ships.
And if we want to modify the ship after it is COMPLETELY finished (after we have payed for the whole thing) we can use dilithium to do a 'refit'!
or by a refit option from the c-store to do modifications

+1

I'm in favour of this, and have wanted it for some time.

The PvP argument as you stated is moot when you can disable visuals.

Personally I'd prefer the visual unlocks remain tied to the items themselves, rather than having to grind yet another reputation project.

I'd suggest it be done one of two ways;
  • Accolade Tied; You get the item, it awards you an accolade, the accolade unlock the costume option. This is how some of the STF ground costumes work.
  • Item Tied; As long as you possess the item anywhere in your character (bank, inventory, on any ship) the costume is available to use.
