When wormholes were new, the mining beams had a revamp.
..view on highest quality and full screen for results.

then they got nerfed a bit in detail, which sucked.

Does anyone prefer the NEW beams since incarna?

yes, my sub will run out soon, and no I don't care for trolls.
This was another thing that bugged me about changes since that time.
So worth a post as something that pi***d me off too.

Actually I like the new beams and turrets.
Much better then before to be honrest.

And for the 3 other people that use sound.
Did you notice that they only make sounds when they cycle.
Which is a great.
Serves as a little reminder, especially if you are unlucky and need to do some ice mining.

Don't I just love living in a country where 50% of youtube's content won't play because some record company said they don't want their music to be played on our interwebs? Say no to free exposure and/or advertizing.

So, no idea what they look like in your video, but the beams my strip miners emit currently with the two yellow laser cutters and the bluish tractor beam do look pretty cool.

i like the normal non strip mining beams that came immediately before incarna. The ones that would exist only for like 10 seconds then refresh. I wasnt much a fan of the fat clunky pre incarna strip mining beams though. However having everything as the same eternal never changing blue to yellow beam now is kind of boring.

give back the smaller 'rapid' firing normal mining beams (but keep them the new blue) and maybe remodel the strip miner beams, make them slightly thicker, slightly transparent and maybe deeper blue with hints of purple laced throughout the entire beam

Yes, I like the fact they sound only when they cycle ^^ Sometimes when I mine I'm reading a book... and so the cycling sound is a reminder to me to remind me I should put the ore in the can ;)
