Cool New Features
Rubicon 1.3, the latest content patch for EVE brings not just fixes and performances updates, but includes new mobile tractor units, rogue drone nexus chips, hull repair drones, enhancements to directional scanner enhancements and the new Ship Painting Program. For a full list of patch notes read the Pile Onto Rubicon update.
Ship Painting Pilot Program
New paint skins are available from the NEX store as well as at the CONCORD Loyalty Point Store.
In order to get your re-skinned ship you need to bring your base ship and your new BPC to any station with a manufacturing service, place the BPC in the manufacturing slot and you're moments away from clicking deliver and receiving your skinned ship. Same stats, still destructible but with a bold new look.
Current ships that can be repainted are the Rifter, Incursus, Merlin, Punisher, Abaddon, Maelstrom, Rokh and Hyperion. Additional ship skins will be available at a later date beginning with ORE HQ's new ship designs.
