[Ships] Do boats ever fade to original color?

    With the fading system does the paint ever come completely off and return to color it was before the ship was bought?

    I bought a ship thats purple and i keep using boat remover but i CANNOT get it off. Dont want to waste anymore money so curious if it will all come off.

    Thanks

    It takes 1 week per coat to fade - so most colors that are 3 coats turn back to a dark brown with the pre-existing highlights in 3 weeks.

    If you go use 1 coat of some other color to replace the purple, you'd only have to wait one week.

    how many paint removers will it take if someone "went to town" with paint and it has a lot of coats?

    You can only add 3 or 5 coats depending on the colour, Each coat darkens the colour, you can't for example put 50 coats on just so it won't wear out for 50 weeks.

    I stopped painting mine after it faded, I don't visit the Emporium much and to go just for paint is rather is a bit odd. :p

    So that means max I will have to wait 5 weeks before the ugly purple will come off?

    Do the new 2 tone paints wear out in a week? Thats a bummer if they do, they cost $.


    Edit- Nevermind I read they are permanent..
