I was thinking about getting woodland or tiger stripe for one or all of my Dragons. The PC Gamer skin can do some pretty cool stuff on the other mechs I own (CPLT and HBK), but it looks a little funny on my Dragons.

Should I do one time use or the full unlock? It's cheaper to buy the one time use 3 times, but then I'll lose it if I ever want to change...

Hmmm... or maybe I could just buy a couple more colors to use with the default and PC gamer skins...

And then I also need to consider the fact that I can't even see my mech's camo in game. Why am I painting it again?

(Yeah, I know it just comes down to personal preference. Basically just wanted to see if you guys found paying for camo/colors to be worthwhile.)

I just recently "Single Use" purchased both the Vagabond and Woodland schemes for my K2 and 5M respectively. I normally "Unlock" color schemes, but not every pattern scheme looks exactly the same on every mech varient, which is why I went w/ the "Single Use".

If I had a single favorite mech variant and no others of the same kind, I'd do single use. For stalkers, I unlocked. I think it's ridiculous that "unlock" doesn't give you free use on any mech though. I've got tiger and woodland, but for the few colors I've got, I like woodland.

Yeah I've only done the single use Phraken before with a mech and color scheme I liked and was pretty sure I would be happy with for a while, single use Phraken Atlas was MC125 while unlock was MC1250 and so I figure I can do a couple of single use and still pick it up during one of their 50% off sales and still come out ahead...

As far as colors I just have the PC Gamer ones and the basic ones that you can unlock with C-Bills instead of MC, I've been pretty happy with them for now.

I like painting my mechs to give them some uniqueness mainly the ones I use a lot and am fond of... really looking forward to being able to paint hero and founder's mechs too.

I have a particular scheme that I use so may not be the best to answer this question...

For obvious college FB obsession, I only need to get Tiger strip and the colors orange and blue....War Eagle!

Anyway, if one of my mechs is fun to play and EARNS the strips, it gets a one time purchase tiger strip pattern. All others just get the generic pattern. All of them are blessed with the colors though.

S

In general though, unless you are changing camo like my wife changes outfits its cheaper to do the one time purchase.

Thanks guys. I did the math and realized it was $.375 per mech to add a single use camo pattern, so went ahead and added a pattern to my most recent two favorite rides. I'm still pretty limited on colors. I might buy the basic orange at some point to add a little more variety.

Nice cammo!

Something about the catapult always seems to look great with cammo thumbsup

It's funny but in the past before MWO I always thought the catapult was a boring missile support mech with the highlight being it was the grandfather of the clan Timberwolf/Madcat which I love, but seeing and playing it in MWO has given me new respect for it as a great all around mech, probably the most flexible innersphere design in MWO.

I'm actually glad they started with innersphere mechs since many of them besides the Atlas I never paid much attention to with clan mechs being available in the previous games.
