Yeah so I started playing eve on a 2 week trial when trinity was out and started back up 3 months before apoc came out. When I started the trial I had a gallente toon and had not been over in gallente space in a while so decided to go the other day. When I got to duripant which is where I had originally started I noticed things of course had changed but primarily the gate effect. There used to be this particle fountain inside the gate. Looked like particles spewing out the inside of the gate and made their way from one end to the other. My question is when did they take those effects out? I think they looked nice or was it for a certain reason?

They ruined a lot of the nice effects when they introduced wormholes in apocrypha, now everything looks crap ugh

I agree the only thing I think they actually did decent on was the warp tunnel.

It was for a certain reason. They knew you would come back to play for another 2 weeks only to see it and then quit again because of it.

The new effects look fine and you are in the minority. If you actually played the game, I doubt it would bother you.

Umm Ive been playing for over a year now the 2 week trial was in 2007 I started back in Jan 2009 and I had just remembered the effect the other day. I loved the effect but at the time my ISP was being stupid and got rid of them so couldn't commit to a sub. As time went on I just never thought about it till I got internet back in 09. By reason I meant was it too taxing on the servers or did they just take it out because they could and didn't think people would care? CCP PUT IT BACK IN please. It made the gates feel more active then just sitting there and only showing an effect when you jump. Before they seemed full of life and power and ready to take you across the stars now they seem like a dead object only all too ready to push you out the door to leave them be.

Yeah and also add exhaust lines, those effects were really cool, i'm not talking about 10km long or 5000m long, 500-1000 would be nice.

^^ This. Just about every single new effect looks worse than their old counterpart – perhaps with the exception of some of the shield hardeners and the salvager (and then only because the old effect was either an amorphous blob or just non-existent).

There's quite a few of us who play often and dislike many of the new graphics. I mean really, is there anyone here who actually LIKES what they did to cyno fields and capital jumping graphics?

I think the new cynoing effect looks nice. However it could perhaps have been made with a somewhat larger radius I think.

Edit: I dislike that the this very same effect is used on ships going through the stargates.

Due to supporting shader model 2, particle effects are drastically limited.

Once CCP drops shader model 2 (which is planned), expect a particle effect revamp.

Sensor Boosters need the effect of the tracking computers and tracking computers ... just remove the effect, you dont need to see any mod you or the other one are running visually.

Sensor boosters give the word "flashmob" a new meaning and are the reason why i turned effects off.

I really miss the peeling skin Cloaking device effect. That was awesome.

the current cyno effect is just pathetic compared to the electric/zap effect of before, plus the sensor booster effect looks like a holy light spell from WoW.
