Ship and Sparrow shader customization is coming to Destiny! This is likely coming in the Dark Below expansion.
Ship & Vehicle Template
The game’s database reveals 2 materials that will give us the option to apply shaders to our rides. Unfortunately we don’t have many images of what these shaders will look like in-game, as it’s not available yet.
For ships, the “Ship Shader Template” – it’s description reads, “A reverse engineered shell that allows a Shader to interface with ship hull coatings.”
For Sparrows, the “Vehicle Shader Template” – it’s description reads, “A layer of translation code that allows a shader to interface with vehicle coatings.”
You can see 3 possible shaders from the “Ship Shader Template” in this image:
It’s unknown how exactly these will be obtained. Perhaps this will be something Xûr offers? What do you guys think?
In addition to the materials above, it seems Bungie will answer our call for more shader options!
The “Shader Data” item allows for “more complex” options. It’s description reads, “Code tweaks and mods for more complex armor shaders.”
New Ship Designs
While digging around I was able to find new ships coming with the expansions, as well as some models that haven’t been uncovered yet.
The table below lists every currently known Legendary ship that will be in Destiny’s Dark Below/House of Wolves expansion.
You can view these in our database here.
