One of the most exciting things coming up in EVE Online’s future updates is a Ship Skinner feature that will allow creative players to dress their ship in the colors they want. Whether you want to fly in style solo or want to create a theme for your corporation or faction, the Ship Skinner will be the way to go about it. More on the latter, corporations don’t have to worry about making their ship colors individually. CCP told us that the Skinner will have a share code feature that will allow creators to share designs with others so they can quickly load a paint job onto their own ships.

EVE Online creative director Bergur Finnbogason and community developer Peter Farrell told us about the Ship Skinner share feature during our recent interview. During that interview, Farrell gave us the lowdown on how it would work.

It sounds as though making a uniform style of colors and paintjobs for various ships in EVE Online will be easy, at least in function. The ability to share designs through a code will make it so corps, organizations, and factions will have an easy team distributing their colors. The EVE devs are excited to see what players do with it too, as shared by Finnbogason:

The Ship Skinner is set to hit EVE Online in an update coming in the months ahead. Stay tuned as we watch for the update and keep an eye on our other EVE Online coverage on the topic, right here at Shacknews.
