      Now that the color packs for most ships have been released, what do you think the color of the Angeli should be?

      Not asking everyone to go and buy the pack, but if you have it, show your colors.

      I really rate the blue.. I think my vulture will look good in it.

      But wonder if we could use the colours as a quick display of offensive/defensive role, or how you’ve configured your ship?

      For example, something like this:

      Yellow defender/support

      Green frontal assaults (heavily shielded)

      Orange beam weapon specialist

      Red long range attack/chasers (I’m thinking vipers here)

      Blue kinetic weaponry specialist

      Purple Trade pimps 🙂

      Or maybe tied to your approximate Angeli forum ranking?

      Unfortunately Pink is not on the list.

      Personally I think we should ask for Pink ships.

      Why?

      Cause in a galaxy this dangerous, it takes men with real balls to fly pink ships.

       

      If not, Red, so we go faster.

      I love pink vehicles, you can ask DaMorgs about my GTA5 car collection

      The Pink Eagle Masters Posse (PIMP for short)
      Should be a force to be reckoned with!
      People should be taught to FEAR pink ships!

      Until such time, Orange is a pretty great colour.

      Blue of course. The colour of our glorious Empire!

      But I have always liked that shade of green, has that classic sports car feel to it. Jags in space.

      Red just makes me think of a balding pilot just circling around the entrance to Dawes Hub in his red Clipper, hoping to catch the eye of a young socialite passing in the first class section of an Orca on a day-cruise or something.

      And who are the trolls voting for orange or yellow? Or is it an OHS thing in some stations now perhaps…

      [EDIT: LOL! As I typed this I went and had a look at the store. Paint jobs in present-day national flag colours? This is so silly. Finland maybe gets a pass (thought it was Scotland at first, probably is meant to be but politics). I can laugh at it but at the same time it kind of (no, totally) would kill my immersion to see one of these in combat. Lucky no one ever gets a good look at a Viper anyhow I suppose. Just imagine a Stars ‘n’ Stripes Anaconda though.

      So silly.

      There might be a certain pom here that has a pretty “classy” union jack viper.

      Dont want to say his name… Him being the CEO and all might get me in trouble.

      Though my Viper usually has a nice Chrome finish,  today is the Day for it isnt it?

      Were we to pick a Group colour, I advocate waiting until the Tactical Colours arrive too just in case we find one there that appeals. As much as I have using the word tactical to describe kit, as it makes me feel like some Tacticool Keyboard warrior.

      If Orange for some crazy reason ends up winning, I think we should call for a recount, particularly in some areas of Florida. If it doesn’t look things are going the right way, you can stop the counting and get a court to appoint the appropriate colour as the AI official one, and do away with this “election” nonsense. There’s precedence.

      Afterwards we can invade a few neighboring rogue systems, after declaring a war that can never end.

      Very appropriate paint job, Blain. Much respect.

      Is there a Gallipoli Station/System we could visit?

      There is an Ataturk Station orbiting New Turkey in LHS 1387, which also has a station Angel’s Sunshine

      Blue,

      Because, blue.

      but I agree with waiting until all ships hav skins.  I really want Imperial starship grey for the Queen.

      A dark coloured skin makes sense, as it is harder to see, vs a bright or light colour. A mirror finish would be perfect.

      I assume we are going with a Colour to unify us rather than as cammo/concealment
      The Orange target box & blue engine plums still gives away those Black Cobras & Chrome Vipers.

      Bright colours like yellow or orange might seem tactically counter intuitive, but they’re more likely to be unique. I’d have changed my vote from yellow to orange if I’d checked the results first. Blue and red just seem like they’ll be too common. Can we change votes please?

      I’ve only ever had one ship go all silent running on me, it flew toward the sun making it very hard to see no matter what it’s colour would have been. I still managed to chase it down by following it’s vapour trail anyway. So I have to say that due to HUD and vapour trails, no one’s going to achieve much in the way of camouflage no matter what paintjob you have.
