I've looked around the Combine and can't figure out how to assign custom images to player-owned ships. Is there a cost to do so? What is the accepted image size?

- You click on the green numbers next to CP.
- Click on Exchange CPs.
- Scroll down to Custom Images
- Select New for "What you want to do"
- Select the entity type and fill in the other information
- Then click submit

Image restrictions are listed in that section.

To add to that, each image costs 100 CPs.
If the combine is hosting/available for that ship you don't need to do anything, but choose the image you want your ship to be.

The initial image submission costs 250 CPs for the small and 250 CPs for the large, as I recall. Then CPs to apply after it is approved.

You might be referring to the publicly available customs? If so, then instead of "New" you would select "Public"; however, it didn't sound like what he was doing from his initial post.

Maha is correct. The initial cost is 250CPs for the small (required) and an additional 250CPs for the large (optional). Then it's 100CPs per application to entities if I recall correctly.

As well, you can submit new public customs which will give you a small amount of CPs per other players applying them. I can't remember what they cost to create, however.

Interesting. Does submission of new public customs require CP? Image-related stuff is something I generally like. I'd like to try my hand at creating public customs and/or cockpits...

You can't create custom cockpits. As for public custom images, they do cost CP to create but I'm unsure of if the creation cost is the same 250CP per 100x100 and 250CP per large or if its slightly cheaper.

Creation cost for public images was the same as far as I'm aware.

If yuo are going to make a custom ship image, it must be in a 3-d/photographic- realistic rendering/look?

The art team has been known to go through the existing custom images and delete customs they feel don't follow the rules; it happened to a couple ships I bought years and years ago that had ugly rules-breaking customs on them.

If your ship still has something like that, either it does follow the rules closely enough and isn't quite on the level Kendall refers to, or you will one day find it mysteriously missing. :p

Wasn't that the best part of it, Jevon? All of the people crying about how their precise and rule breaking customs were deleted? i sure enjoyed that!

Ienjoyed all the intentionally hostile image changes just to make us delete them .... like the images that said Fuck you all. Or "The ADMINS can kiss my ass". Or the ships with Thief all over them. those were fun to view

I guess then that the art team is responsible for adding new cockpit images? Can the public submit them to the art team for possible approval?

How does that work.. there are so many entities that could use new cockpits.

Cockpit images follow the same image submission process as new ship images. You submit them in the public art team forum, the art team considers them and accepts/denies the image then said image is added to the game as the image for everyone's ship of that type if accepted. Then you get paid CPs.
