I would buy more skins if they were reusable.
Now if the licenses are temporary, like one year of a skin, people will complain it’s a micro transaction cash gouge. If they are permanent and reasonably priced, I think they could become quite popular.
One thing, though. This technology can open the door to player created ship skins. Now I trust CCP’s art, but if players are allowed to design skins or put their own corp logos on ships, please put in a feature allowing me to disable logos and/or disable skins, preferably disable player skins. I would like the ability to see CCP created skins but not see player created skins.
Players will uglify anything they can get their hands on.
Would this be too technologically difficult?
