Link above updated, added 11 new paint jobs and made some very minor cosmetic changes to some of the first paint jobs (some had the wrong colour for the square piece just above the gun).

Fantastic work. Well done. Looks like a nice addition to the Ooniverse.

They are seriously cool!

If I can throw a suggestion at you, it would be awesome to have paint job options for Pythons, FdL's and Asp's as well!

Awesome looking paint jobs. Really nice. 8)

I (still) wish the game would have some easy way of adding variants without changing the balance of ships and roles. As you're probably aware, adding new CobraIIIs with defined roles makes CobraIIIs more probable to be spawned in roles they are defined subtly changing the balance of the game. Not much can be done about it though, since it's pretty much impossible to predict the combination of variants the player has installed and roles are a write-only property.

But anyways, well done :).

I was actually not aware of how the game worked in that regard, but now that you mention it becomes obvious that the game sees every new variant as a new ship altogether and the balance of ships can be shifted. Do you have some suggestion on how to tackle this on my side? I could make these liveries available only to the player for instance, but that would be not ideal in my opinion as it is really nice to encounter these different liveries in the Ooniverse.

Good question. With Griff's normalmapped replacement ships it was easy, I just redefined all the roles so that the balance won't change. This one is harder and would need something more creative. Could something be done with a suitable ship script in templates? This needs a bit experimenting.

I have the same issue with the Classic Ships suite, where the 'variety pack' in particular does have a slight effect on weighting. TBH my club-hammer fix :roll: was just to try to include a selection which I guessed would come close to 'balancing' the roles.

Well, if someone has a concrete idea on how to tackle this then I would be happy to try it. In the meantime, if a player feels that this OXP disturbs the balance in his/her game, then an easy fix is to only use the *-PLAYER ships and not the *-NPC ships, so that the new liveries are only available to the player.
