[pictures] the complete guide to ship-skins [Update 9.97]

Recommended Posts

Can I just say those 'Rouge & Noir' and 'Brest Harbour' paintschemes are true eyesores and border on being fantasy paints, which I thought many people had spoken against ? The former wouldn't look out of place in a POTC movie, while the latter looks like 'lipstick on a corpse'. Really not impressed by those.

 

On the other hand, I wouldn't mind the 'Sicily' livery replacing the defaults for Constitution and Essex... 

 

Dont use it if you dont like it.

 

I for one like the way they look.

I'm still forced to look at them when I'm doing battle with or against them. Wish we'd stick to historical paintschemes and skip the fantasy 'xoxo pirates' ones.

I much prefer the default colours of all the ships in the game, except the default Santi, which looks awful. In fact I just don't like the Santi at all, it is just like a big flat sided brick, with no character what so ever. I get the feeling that the Spanish ship designers of the day, hadn't got a clue how to add curves to the hulls like the French and the British. No wonder this ship had a bad time at Trafalgar.  :rolleyes:

I agree that some of them look out of place or garish on certain ships (a Swedish blue Connie for example). However admin is keeping to generally historical ship colors based on period artwork or documentation.

 

Look at this in perspective of players asking for total customization like being able to paint their ship like the Black Pearl or to paint their sails purple with skulls. The current paint mechanism is a good way to allow for some customization and potentially for micro-transactions down the road without having to actually put up with the fantasy pirate colors.

I absolutely agree. Microtransactions will and have to come to keep the game alive in the long run. As all early access games the devs are probably looking for different income sources than the "single game buy". In my opinion skins would be the only legit way to achieve this. If we are looking at a trial for microtransactions the skins they have implemented are are good way to fulfill demand and still stay kind of historic accurate

 

But IF they aren't even thinking about this, I would rather not have "Breast harbour" and "Rouge Noir" ingame. But thats just my 5 cents

"Breast" harbour ? Gimme immediately the GPS coordinates of that port. I'd love to visit it !  :D

 

btw I do like the Brest harbour paint.

Since we will probably see an awful lot of paintjobs in the coming days due to the events, I guess its time to update this thread.

As you can see the patch brought a shitton of new paints (or paints in the making). Since I am not sure which ones are actually in the game yet, I added a list of them in the first post to keep track of which are missing.

As always I need your screenshots. :ph34r:
