Please return the effect of the cyno jump that was before Apoc. One of the joys of capital ships was the blinding light, the bang of the warp portal opening up and the woosh as you fly through, And hot dropping on people. Or a titan dropping out; the blinding white light. All that stuff was awesome. Now its meh.

I agree to a certain degree.. i think all ships should maintain the current jump animation "however" i think capitals should also show the directional wormholing effect like before. Currently gates dictate jump direction and the rest of the effect for subcaps, so the capitals should get their jump "direction" via the original effect + the current one.

Additionally it would be nice if the entrance/exit of the jump caused effect of the actual ship directional movement.. but if not possible.. then the effect needs to be originally projected on the ships facing direction and then locked on coordinates, regardless of if the ship swings so you don't get the swinging gate effect if it gets bumped on entrance and exit.

Kenzoku AAA and Goonswarm agreeing on something, must be a good idea.

Good point Kenny!

Yes, capitals should have a different jump animation than plebes without jumpdrives.

I hate to admit it, but the Kenny does have a point.

Jumped thanatos, then moved it through jumpbridge. Very disappointing.

I love all the other effects.

I'm wondering if there is some technical reason (less lag or something) CCP did this because I cannot imagine they looked at this and thought, "Hey! That's sooo much cooler than the 'old' one!" Maybe Icelander's just have dramatically different aesthetics than everyone else in EVE...I dunno.

Hell, I never jump drive anywhere but I love watching it in EVE movies. Not to mention anything that can get Goons and Kenny agreeing has my vote.

Posted - 2009.03.13 20:00:00 - [21]

I agree that the current Cynosural effect is quite.. lame, so yea bring back the old one with some added bling bling, or make a new one!

The cap ship jumping animation alone was worth the subscription Cool

Posted - 2009.03.14 00:20:00 - [26]

signed - new effect sucks

I loved the old cyno effect. It was even more impressive when 50 or more capitals cyno'd in/out together.

Bring it back! For both capitals and jump bridges.

Agreeing with this kenzoku dude that the old cyno effect was way cooler.

In my very early days i was lucky enough to see a mothership jump. it was incredible. now? wow ccp. i think one blemish on the new graphics.

Posted - 2009.03.14 06:21:00 - [30]

So many nice new efffects yet you remove one of the ones that was actually really cool from the old set.

Bring back the funnel, or better yet an improved version =]
