Armor Coatings can't be used across different cores

It’s ridiculous that a player can only use armor coatings on certain cores. For example, the Platinum Anniversary coating that we all received is only for the Mark VII core. For some arbitrary reason, we can’t use it on the Mark V[B] core. Same is true for many other coatings that are exclusive to a core.

Add to this the fact that we have to unlock colors in the first place, rather than just patterns.

The fix: armor coatings should be PATTERNS, usable on any armor core, whereas all COLORS are unlocked by default, including ones that aren’t currently listed.

My girlfriend shouldn’t be asked to pay $20 to get white armor like she’s used for years. So much for player individuality and expression.
