why for no new explosions in apocrypha?

is an explosion not considered an effect? Confused

slightly disgruntled.

merh.


P.S. if anyone asks about my fascination with explosions, I will make them explode.

i believe it looks the same. the autocannons are pure sex tho, and some of the other effects looks like a really bad acid trip. in other words, theyre freakin awesome.

now that you mention it, the fragments seems to shoot out a lot further and leave a longer trail. but the blue explosion itself was always like that i believe.

i can admit that it looks like they "cleaned" them a little, but i will NOT accept those as new explosions.

they are using the exact same animations and simply extending how far the particles fly.


... which is a start, but hardly acceptable in the long run.

The only thing i noticed that the explosions have few particles added and the dust,fog, stays a but longer after explosions. Also few days ago, some RAT explosions had a bright red glow, just like the player explosion has bright blue, this has been removed (never noticed it again).

It's kind of Meh, when you realize what can CCP archivie with SM 2.0 (they can do real shockwaves !!!), explosions are not that common, you won't usually see more than 3 of them (yeah there is this DD thing on titan, i know :) ), so they can make a very complicated effect without making everybodies client go 2 fps.

Well you cannot satisfy everyone with the new effects, there will always be ppl that like the old one better etc.
Personally i think that 50% of the new effects are pure win, 50% is a "repeated head smashing over the table" kind of presentation.

Yeah it's still not final and i hope for the better tommorrows. Also in some tunning of the effects based on player feedback after deployment to TQ :).

P.S. WHY DID YOU EVER TAKE THE AWESOMENESS OF THE CAPITAL SHIP JUMP ? WHY ??? WITH WHAT AM I GOING TO IMPRESS THE NOOBS NOW ? :)

You're hallucinating.

Those two effects did not get updated (as of yesterday's build, at least).

the asploshuns look about the same to me, maybe cleaner.

but the weapon effects are great, the auto-cannons almost make me want to switch to Minnie ships fulltime.

i definitly won't complain about the new weapon effects.

i mean, i would've prefered some better impact effects. . . but the improvements we got were still very good.

its just.... damnit, you need brilliant explosions to go with brilliant gunfire.

the capital ship explosion on the test server is broken right now, at least on the patch that was on there earlier today.
