SKINs (Super Kerr-Induced Nanocoatings) allows players to change the color scheme of their ship at any time. They are available from various sources as trade-able Licenses. Once the license is used, it will unlock the color scheme for the respective ship for the character that used the license. A SKIN license can be used by right clicking it within the inventory and selecting the "Activate SKIN License" menu entry.
An activated ship SKIN license can then be selected within the left hand side of the fitting window, where all available skins for the currently active ship will be listed. Changing the ship to show a SKIN merely requires clicking on it within the list of licensed SKINs.
The "Unlicensed SKINs" list contains a list of available SKINs for the ship that the character does not have licensed currently, along with buttons to check the in-game market for the respective license or acquire it from the NES Store, where applicable. While unlicensed SKINs are shown within the fitting window preview, they can not be applied to the ship unless their license has been activated for the character.
