# 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.

This would be a nice option to have.

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.

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

Lets see how Cryptic could implement this in game. I figure the Set visuals would be locked until you collected the entire set. Then you'll be able to select what visuals you want in the ship tailor.

Maybe they'll add it to the reputation system, because that is what they did for the ground armor unlocks. Then Aegis set would have to be added to a rep thing I guess. They do have plans to add more reputation embassy's.

Probably have to get all 3 reman set pieces mk 12 purple then unlock the visuals through another project.

Still if cryptic chooses that route I'd still want it in game. We want this help build support!

As this is something that I would love to see added to the game, I can remember posting about this before. This would also allow for the addition of extra mod parts without having to expand the item sets themselves.

I would love this, too. I've been seriously tempted, for example, to craft Aegis shields JUST for the look.
