Easy way to do this would also find an actual use for holo emitters....

Create a holo emitter that simply activates the 'damaged' skin for your ship.

spend a little GPL, get to look like you just got dragged through a space hedge backwards.......

I would love to have an option for this. Flying around in a "squeaky clean" ship all the time just seems wrong. Some scorch marks, maybe a nacelle venting drive plasma from time to time... Maybe even a hole blasted through the saucer section? (OK, that might require some modeling work)

All purely aesthetic stuff mind you. And hey, I would gladly buy it if it was a "Damaged Ship Costume Pack" in the Z-Store.

I actually think that this should be added as a toggle-able, default game mechanic (especially for you Elite STF players who suffer from getting your ship "sunk" by the borg most of the time! (since in elite space STFs, your ship receives a random injury when it gets destroyed))

I want to see little people flying out of the holes in my outer hull.

That would be a problem for most escorts in an extended battle. Considering how quickly the computer counts them as 'disabled' or 'dead,' I could easily see there being far more 'casualties' coming out of the hull breaches than were actually supposed to be on the ships.

I suppose it would make the Defiant the Starfleet equivalent of a clown car... except with more phasers.

id pay 500 Zen for a couple SEPERATE customization options for my ships hull to look damaged. eg: not hull material, not paint, not actual ship parts, but seperate options in the ship tailor.

-leaking nacelle (already in game)
-damaged hull (already in game when you have low hull)
-nacelles sort of "sparkle" or have "lightening" on them (already in game)
-hole in saucer section
-missing nacelle
-nacelle half blown off
-marks from "weathering" like marks on the hull from the thrusters, impulse engines etc etc
-damage from weapons fire (would be cool if it worked like scars in the character creator, pick the one you want, scale it, move it around, choose its color etc etc. don't even need to show interior hull.)

just some things I think would be cool.

for sure would use weathering affects, weapon scaring, and everyonce in a while nacelle damage. as they say...it adds character!

Yeah, can we have the "Sledge Hammer" option too for our starship/shuttle hulls?

I would love to see constant battle damage, **** i fly around with major sickbay damage, just to slow down the " super healing" of my crew inside and outside of combat.

but yes, the black marks on warp nacelles and torpedo ports would be great!
i wouldnt mind buying a skin pack or having a toggle switch, would keep up with rping just fine thank you
