# 1 Type-6 material on all ships
07-07-2013, 12:45 AM
So, with LoR, JamJamz kindly enabled the Type-6 material to work on all ship part combinations *if you own one of the 2409 style ships of that type that comes with it*. In other words, if you own a Thunderchild or Armitage, you can now use Type-6 on the Akira hull; if you own the Regent, you can now use Type-6 on a Sovereign. And so on.

However, under some conditions, there's a bug that prevents you from editing the colors of the patterns: Exhibit A. Notice the colors I selected- yellow and pink- are not applied to the model with Type-6 selected.

Here's the workaround: first, you must change the ship preset to one of the 2409 variants that came with Type-6 natively. This will allow you to change the pattern colors. Exhibit B. Once you've got the colors you want, manually change each ship component to the style you want, in this case Akira. Exhibit C.

Edit: I noticed this while playing with the Type-6 skin, but it appears to be a more general bug affecting all ships. See here:

Bump. This now works for my HEC but not for my Sao Paulo Refit. Do I have to buy the tier 5 Tactical Escort Retrofit to get mat 6 for all defiant variants, or is it broken?

No. Type 6 will still just be available for the Sao Paulo.
