    They say it's not currently in yet. How much are you willing to bet they are talking about name plates?

    Way I read it, it ends up being the same thing. If you don't have a name plate, apparently you don't get to see the ship name period.

    THAT SUCKS btw...

    FD, please make the name plates free with a basic font. I large majority of us all agree that paying for even a basic name plate is ridiculous

    Read my post and quote me saying at any point "shut up". I said you have a choice, a consumer choice.
    Please don't post baiting comments and please don't put words in my mouth. Parents are watching.

    So you're going to call people names like whinger, and then play the victim when someone responds? Man, this is why I tend to avoid these forums...

    Hope not. There's a case for making some cosmetics earnable in game I do think, some paintjobs, some decals, some spacesuits but nameplates is one I think should be left entirely in the store. In part that's because it's the one cosmetic that can be 'transmitted' across a number of light-seconds, through a ship scan so it's actually quite different from the others. There's also some 'player story' interest in having some ships with names, some without, imho.

    Well, very disappointed by what FDev said about name plates on the stream.

    Not even being able to see player's ships in a scan is mean-spirited.

    Is this from the stream that's on now?

    It's not mean spirited it's part of the funding model, which is pure facts of life, seriously.

    We don't know how much yet for another thing but it's plainly a cosmetic, as well as being one that's actually probably more interesting, than your paintjob (many of which are given away for nothing) to transmit your name across wide distances in the game.

    Enter some competitions? Chances are good I'd say that nameplates will get a similar treatment to paints and decals in prize packs.

    No it's mean spirited and penny pinching.

    Paywalling a feature off on a paid for game? Sod Frontier if that's their new model.

    Not an effing free to play game is it.
