It would be nice to have more control of the appearance of our ships even it is just a more complete color pallet for not just decals but the ship hull itself. I like the Reman shield for how it makes the ship look and it would be nice if I could choose a hull coloration that looks similar. I would gladly pay for such an option if they put it in the C-Store.

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.
You just earned a cookie. =3

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

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.

That is a nice option. I would love to have such a stuff on my ships... especially if I could use the super KDF Aegis fx on my federation ships. Cool red instead of the boring blue.


Also, so you are the guy who took the username I wanted

I cannot tell if the people who keep announcing that they will pay for some arbitrary feature are actual players or just plants working for Cryptic.

That being written - SPINNING LATINUM NACELLE RIMS.

I wished I worked for cryptic I would change/fix so many things. lol Latinum plated hull! I'd probably cry every time my ship exploded because that much latnium going up almost too much my ferengi core.

I'd rather not have to do another rep project, but I figured that cryptic already did the visual unlocks for the ground armor in the rep system that they'd do it for this too.

Custom/kitbashing ships would be nice, but then cryptic would have to create all the parts in 3d modeling and rigging.

Thats if they are new parts, but for all the parts that are already in game it really means changing how the parts are organized and what is made available to each ship. Some parts obviously wouldn't be compatible but there is room for a lot more mixing and matching than what we have now.

So Gecko talked about the option to unlock visuals for ships in this interview: http://www.podcastugc.com/archives/600 at the minute 58. So if you see this thread Gecko please please unlock visuals!

It would also get around the issue with multi-part ships such as the Galaxy, Prometheus, and Odyssey losing the visuals on the other sections on separation, as these visuals would then be part of the costume as opposed to part of one ship.
