I had an idea that I think would work best with Torn Stars. I think it would be interesting if you could buy paint schemes in the game. This would be really expensive because of all of that paint and wouldn't help the player any (unless it affects the threat rating of the hull), but the wealthier merchants and pirates might use it.

Actually, Unstable Space has the 'machinery' to implement that right now. It would just take a bit of coding for an interface, then some actual photoshop work to create 'alternate paint jobs' for all, or a subset of, pilotable ships.
The coding would be a snap. The photoshopping and ini file setup would take some time.
I kind-of did this for cargo pods. At least, they are not customizable, but their 'colours' give the player a clue as to the value of the contents. A little detail I wonder whether anyone ever noticed.

There are a few paint jobs done already: you could use my paint schemes from the Retro Ships Pack mod. Rusty (the storm petrel) isn't exactly a paint scheme, but perhaps it could be a ship that can be bought for less than an ordinary storm petrel, and perhaps it only has one working hardpoint. The Makwa interceptor (storm petrel) could be used in place of Rusty.

My mods aren't supposed to have the version numbers; that is something that Google sites added whenever I added or changed the description.
