Suggesting black stripes and a “weathered effect” patchy texture we can apply to styles. It would increase the visual diversity of player creations with a relatively small effort. Weathering is especially very big in the mecha community!
Since i’m at it, i’m recommending more textures in general, like thin, distand lines to create the illusion of paneling, and other visual greble that implies ports, hatches and panel connections to break flat areas visually on demand.
I’ve tried to make a “safety stripes” pattern with decals and it doesn’t work out. Decals are often too small, so this would be a boon towards more “construction” builds.
