Hey @mrandersson,

Indeed, this is one of the limitations listed here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/networking/ipv6/details/limits/

You cannot enable IPv6 on Droplets created from custom images.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!
