I can't use the new material on my Intrepid. It shows on preview but can't be applied. My ship has Intrepid/Bellerophon parts mixed and I'm wondering if this si the reason. If so, why is it an issue? I mean it looks fine in the preview.

Do you have any shields with visuals enabled? they overwrite the selected material of your ship.

Let me guess, you sail the Retrofit too?

For those not in the loop, the new Veteran material simply doesn't show up as an option if you use the Intrepid saucer. if you use any of the others, including the Belerophon, it shows but will not "stick" as the active hull material. If you look carefully, you will also see that one of the pylons doesn't change the material type while it is selected.

The Retrofit has a few long-standing bugs with its costumes. One of them being that you cannot change the windows of the saucer from Type 1 if you kitbash using the Belerophon saucer. Another is that the Belerophon's saucer has impulse engines where there are phaser hardpoints... so it fires phasers (beam arrays) from the engines.

But yeah, this is likely a symptom of the issue where the Retrofit is not linked to the Tier 4 version of the ship and doesn't properly inherit modifications. I suspect this is due to the Ablative Hull Armor effect geometry embedded in the model.

This new ship haul material is also not working for the FREE Odyssey class starship as well. Just tried to apply the haul material & it will not stay.

I'm having the same problem with the Odyssey as well.
Works fine on the Anniversary Bortas though.

The problem is the ship itself. The material only shows up for 2/4 ship variants and it doesn't apply on the ones that it does show up on.

I have the same issues with the Intrepid Retrofit and the basic Odyssey.

Does anyone have any screen shots of this new skin? (For those who's actually works).
I read the dev's blog and saw the picture there, but I can't see any difference myself. Probably cause I'm not familiar with the starcruiser.

I hope they get it fixed before I hit mine in a few weeks. I'd like to put it on my Intrepid too.
