I would like to make a proposal that the pre-Incarna sound effects for Strip Miners & Mining Drones be reintroduced as soon as possible. I cannot see a viable reason why they were removed in the first place. The current sound is quite pathetic and not in any way 'industrial' sounding. I would also like to see the return of the cracking rock sounds when 'looking' at asteroids being mined although this is secondary in importance to returning the old laser sound effects.

NB. This proposal is for return of the old sound effects ONLY as the new laser visual effects are indeed 'cool'. Smile

If you support this proposal please reply to this post. Thank you.

I am in favour and give my full support to Celgar's proposal for the previous set of sound effects to be returned for Strip Miners and Mining Drones.Exclamation

Supported because it was yet another pointless 'improvement' that just made things homogeneous and bland. A few weedy beams of light are pathetic compared to the nice big pulses you had before and if the sounds have changed that's even worse.

Also give us back some decent looking mining laser beams. These new ones are just pathetic! But still not as pathetic as the new weak sound that only plays once.

The new sound is so pathetic I thought it was an unintended glitch that would soon be fixed. Difficult to believe that it was an intended feature working as intended.

Ironically, the new visual is nice.

Yes, bring the good sound back. Also, the new mining laser effect is pretty lame. I like the crossing back and forth of the 2 beams, but it's so thin and pathetic looking...bring back the big fat rock melting goodness we're used to!

Its just like the cyno/gate/cloak effect update in Apocrypha. Here is a selection of posts after seeing the cyno effect.

Pre-Apoc: DUDE! That is AWESOME! (from local)
Post-Apoc: LOL That was pathetic. (from corp chat)

EDIT: Supportz

it seems they did this to bore miners even more. possibly to make it easier to find the macro users.

i support this thread either way.
