Ship Skins

Dark Species Shipsets (84 skins)


Author: Crusader Vanguard
Workshop Collection link

This is a collection of mods that darken the base hull colour of all seven vanilla ship types and introduce 12 different coloured lights based on the RGB colour wheel. This disables the feature that causes ships to be coloured according to the primary flag colour.

Guilli’s Plantoid Ship Graphics Pack (2 skins)

Author: Guilliman
Workshop link

This adds two Plantoid ship variations – light and dark. This mod, of course, requires the Plantoids DLC.

The same author has published a number of compatibility patches for NSC, Realistic Ships, ISBS, and Downscaled Ships.

Stellar Warpaints (21 skins)


Author: Antharis
Workshop link

Antharis has included 21 additional ship types in this mod, with a focus on the Reptilian ships (seven variations).

Because of the size of this mod, you’ll also need Stellar Warpaints Part 2 – Runtime Fix. Alternatively, you could just use Stellar Warpaints – Performance Edition. These are mutually exclusive options:

  • Stellar Warpaints + Stellar Warpaints Part 2 – Runtime Fix
  • Stellar Warpaints – Performance Edition

The author specifically points out compatibility with:

  • NSC
  • More Ship Classes
  • Epic Explosions (but not Epic Explosions fix for Downscaled Ships)

You will need a patch if you also use Downscaled Ships.
