Pretty cool from CIG I must say.

It was near the beginning actually. Practically lead with it.

I already have one.

Like, got it because I'm a member of the OP Facebook page, and they posted it there.

I wonder how much money CIG will get from PF skins....

got a couple for myself and as gifts for friends, it's not too pretty, but I am happy for it's existing. Hopefully later we can do our own skins and add our OPPF logo onto ships

That'd be nice, but the problem is if we can do our own skins you know SOMEBODY's gonna do a Peenlancer... which kinda complicates things as far as me wanting to have a pin-up of my gal on one of my fighters and one of a very close young lady friend on another.
Anyone got a Con Andromeda Physical Goodies package you're thinking about melting for a Digital? Send me a note--maybe we can make a deal.

Speaking as someone related to one of the men who liberated a Nazi camp, my instinctive reaction to swastikas is very close to Wyatt Earp's to red sashes.

To sort of get this back on topic a bit, it does seem that the Pitchfork skin has started drawing attention from more players who hadn't even heard of this OP yet and has been drawing in new participants! So long as we make sure no one gets the idea that they have to buy the skin to be a part of the OP it has become a great advertisement and not just a commemorative item from CIG showing their support.

Yeah I've been doing my part in letting people know it is not a requirement, as well as directing them to Crow's work

Just reminds me of this.





Very close to the art style and a little more gloss then I like but it is close enough.


Now then we just gotta get little Nose art options for our ships and I will be set.

I know my ship is going to be covered in stuff like this.

Eat it, nerd.

I'm against most use of runes, mainly because of religious stuff (no, not the Jesus kind lol)

But otherwise I end up acting like an ass and assume the user doesn't know what their doing with it

Otherwise I'll probably have a banana logo on my ships lol

Most people (including CIG) don't like it because the Third Reich used loads of runes in their stuff. But now you've made me curious about why you don't like it, if it's not lord jeebus
