I really like the idea of more parts for ships for aestehtic customization. That said, if these retrofits are priced with the same model as the coatings, as in way too pricey, they will matter as little as the coatings and be bought as just as much.

Looks really cool. But I'll not unleash the hype train till I see the price, and the Jutland parts.

I absolutely love this. I always thought it was strange that the ships you unlock at around T3 and up could only have such a small amount of customization to them, since they don't have T1-T3 parts you can use. This fixes that perfectly, in my opinion! I do agree though, it would be nice if they didn't cost 500cp a piece. Maybe 100-200.

I am huge into customization so I might be bias (I'm that one person that spends three hours getting the cheekbones just right in Elite Dangerous ), but this might be one of the best ideas you guys have come up with in a while in terms of cosmetics.

Im assuming that it won't affect the ship's hitbox?

I have been waiting for more ship customization options for the past 2 years. I look forward to seeing the options for my Nox.

Customization is great - expensive customization is useless!

Can't make money if you price too high; I wonder which direction Greybox will choose?

I'd imagine they won't be any more expensive than coatings, and I see more people with coatings than without. I've had over 2,000gp in my account and have never spent a penny on the game.

Ship geometry cosmetics (whether you got them from Hero Ships, ships unlocked in the progression, or the newly announced Retrofits) do not affect the base ship class' hit box or gameplay

Thank you! This is a big improvement.

Please keep the pricing reasonable. This is something I'm 100% happy to spend money on.

For long range planning, customizable hangars?

Customizable hangar was teased about in a stream a few weeks ago (no pics, it has just been talked about).
