Purchased Color Coatings Can Only Be Used on One Ship Type. Seriously?

I get the devs have to make money somehow, but making people buy the SAME coating over again for every new ship type is just straight up ridiculous. The price to simply paint your ship is quite high to start with and when you purchase hero ships their coatings can be applied to any ship type, so why should it be any different when you purchase other coatings?

Sorry if I sound harsh. I'd like to think you devs would take some initiative here and remove this completely unnecessary feature but unfortunately you all have an unreliable record of listening to your player's suggestions/input. If you think I'm wrong in saying that, don't just tell me - prove it by making this change. I'm not at all asking for much here... being allowed to apply a purchased color coating to ALL ships you own is a perfectly reasonable thing that should be implemented, and not being able to do so should never have been in the game to begin with.

If any of you all agree with me please speak up or else the devs won't listen

You kinda answered your own question. Also it's how f2p games work. To understand why it's like this tou have to understand where the money for f2p games comes from.

70% of a f2p games income comes from just 10% of the player base. So you have to keep in the back of your.mind that just because it's there dose not mean your are supposed to have it.

To be fair to them, they do do pain packs every now and then where you can buy a coating for all your ships for something like 1000gp. That not a bad price.

Well of course they need money somehow. I get that. I'm just trying to say that this isn't the way to go about it. Imagine if you purchased a hero ship but could only use it in certain game modes and if you wanted to use it in other game modes you had to buy it again.

My point is that it's basic logic that a purchased paint scheme should be available on all ships because naturally people will often want their ships of a fleet to have the same color, and otherwise it would be very expensive. If you bought the hunter pack for example you could only purchase two paint schemes anyway and that's not a lot, especially if you could only use those paints on a few of your ships.

If the devs want more ways to make money then go right ahead but they should do something that's more rational such as adding more hero ships or a new category of cosmetics.

During early beta-testing what you wanted was the case, however for ten times the price, so people complained that 2k-4k gp for a coating was too much, especially if they did not want to use it on all ships.

The market is not clear. Your point is valid.

I got caught in the same thing buying some cosmetics thinking I could use them everywhere but I could not. It leaves a sour taste.

Or like all the hero ships have 4 pieces of unique geometry, but the hanuman has 2. I bought it expecting it was like every other hero ship, and it wasn't. My fault? Yea, but it's just not good business to have people feeling weird about their purchases.

How many people buy hero ships thinking that they would be customizable? I'm sure someone has. Because why wouldn't they be customizable?

I think the pricing on that new shark hero dreadnought was perfect. Bought that in 2 seconds and was 100% happy with the cosmetics and coating. The price is good even without a playable ship in the package. Just the cosmetics were worth it.

In the market, they should make things very clear and standardized. Right now it's inconsistent with other games and with itself.

Not all hero ships have 4 parts. The T4 morning star has 1. The rest are from the T5 Zemi.
