Is it possible to have paint job on the ship.  Maybe when the helm selects ship type they can select Background Paint Job, too.  Just a random thought I had the other day....

It was mentioned that this feature might be included, for pirate ships, in the future. But I don't think anything came of it or is particularly likely to.

We made custom ships in our TSN Mod and added images to the ships. Every ship we run has a 4th Light Division badge and also a motif on the lower hull section. We also added the ship name on the upper hull section.

It is entirely possible to do by just editing the base game image files, and wouldn't require a mod. You just need to be proficient at using paint programs!

Even though you don't have to mod anything but the game image files, you can give yourself more options by editing the vesselData.xml file. For instance, you could have two ships with different names or paint jobs by duplicating a player ship and giving it your own custom image file.

I would definitely recommend saving a copy of the game directory before making any changes, though.

Xavier et alii - might be my old interest in WW I aeroplanes showing up here, but I was picturing a basic paint job.  Like the Flying Circus would paint all their kites red.  {Then add individual detailing.} 
{And NO, I am not thinking of the "dazzle" camouflage that WW I ships used!}  

Rylera - thx for the tip, will take a look When Time Permits.
