(sorry for the informal way I will be posting... this is my first time getting involved in the forums)

Intro: One of the things that actually got me to play this wonderful game that is known to be Eve, are the videos that are on youtube. Videos such as, "EVE Online", "Day of Darkness", and the CCP made trailers really inspires a player to stop whining about the difficulty of the game (the horrid learning cliff). But in many of these videos the longer engine trails are intact.

I have played for around 6 months, and I was wondering when I would get this fantastic engine trail that looked awesome, but recently I have found out that it was a feature that was taken out due to it's new code not functioning as CCP would like it too.

):

Proposal: Bring back the longer Engine trails, previous dev post says that it is on CCP's list of things to do, and this is just a reminder that (at least me) wants the longer engine trails back. My request is to add them to be functional with an option to turn the effect on and off. Thus players who are bothered by the improper functions of the engine trail can turn it off, and others who enjoy such a feature can keep it on.

Pros:
-Makes EvE seem MUCH more streamlined like, it adds a vital visual interest for new players.
-Some players want velocity vectors, this can be such a tool if created properly

Cons:
-Additional work for CCP
-Possible performance issues, and improper allocation of the engine trails.

bring the engine trails back, I miss them.

We all miss them.

It was engine trails that made me train for interceptors way back in the day.

One of these days..

tired of looking all slow...
you know without these engine trails... it looks like the ship is standing still and just the environment was moving... <---- is what it looked like the FIRST time i played, i thought it was stupid and quit the trial... came back a year later when i was introduced to videos with the engine trails XD

Also want.

If not brought back, fly your ship around with 10% hull left, that looks pretty :)

More or less

Also, make them able to be disabled so in blob battles can be less blobby.

Engine trails ftw :)
I also support engine trails for drones, so during POS bashes and such where every allocates their drones to a single structure there'll be a massive orb of fire created from the orbit of several hundred or thousand drones :D
(Or maybe that'll be a bit too far)

I'm pretty sure ccp said they were bringing them back.

Supported, regardless.

i have done the research, and they said they were bringing them back. just making an effort to gently nudge CCP to remind them that this is still a wanted effect

Engine trails. Plus thunder and lighting of capital jump and old cynos. Look at the start video of EVE, have you ever wondered what is this lighting reflected from the eye in the beginning. Yup - thats the old cyno/capital jump. It would be pathetic, if you would see reflection of the new effect in there.

This topic pops up a lot, and rightly so - but iirc CCP said theyll do it as soon as they can without a huge performance decrease.

im pretty sure the performance decrease is on client side and shouldnt effect the server... but then again if they add the option to disable it... u can turn it on when your casually playing and then you can turn it off when theres a large scale fleet battle

Pretty much this. Also, bring back the old cyno.
