Very very nice.

Now make launcher hard points and missiles that launch from them.

Very nice touch! I do hope they also toss in a hybrid fix, would love to have a proper reason to train large hybrids besides their cool firing animations lol!

Don't dream of any kind of hybrids fix, the animations will just be somehow "realistic" but what it spits out it's another mater and for this one I'm not expecting anything new, better or just working properly.

Just hope they wont break them more than they are already or you can biomass your Gallente char Laughing

This is what I would ever expect with Incarna and above.
The ability to change from space fights to ground FPS the whole thing being inter active.

If this is your goal then CCP, I love you!!

Is this going to ruin looking at ships to see what they have fitted (until they fire)? Long vs short ranged and named/t2 is nice intel to glean from them while they float in a POS/wherever.

Yeah like you can see what drones an Ishtar has stocked or what missiles the Drake is using?

What's your point? You can't do that now and won't be able to after, but atm you can look at turrets, but not if they fold away with this change.

Which is a good thing in my book, the single most annoying thing in frigate combat is those people that flat out refuse to engage anything if they cant tell for sure they are perfectly counter-fit.

CCP's priorities, new turret effects that are completely pointless in terms of gameplay. They could have spent the resources they devoted to making turrets looking cooler to something like fixing hybrid turrets.

Because the people who do the graphics effects are totally the same people who do weapon balance and thus are wasting their time doing graphic upgrades

True but at some point you have to say CCP management maybe should be funding more game devs and, if they have to, less media assets guys. Unless the issues aren't something simply more devs would resolve (faster).

My point isit will bring balance to a currently imbalanced area of the game; currently missile ships have the advantage of hiding their weapons system until they fire. Likewise neuts, drones etc.

I wouldn't mind having nice weapon animations but I would never say it's an imbalance argument.

I rather care if they work properly than they are beautiful, I don't give a dam about auto-canons looking but I have to train for them if I want to pvp effectively because I can't compete when I take my blasters vs other thing than a noob or a ship already overkilled. I don't like Minie looks, really, but I have to train for them if I want to pvp effectively thus loosing a few more months in ship/guns training skills while I could use those precious sp to train for specialised T2 ships or capitals.

They did a great job with those animations, really. Just hope they will not bring those animations to my blasters without doing something so they can be effective or worst: nerf/break them

That would be CCP's style......

So there is something wrong with Blaster / Rail gun balance in the game... Well lets make em pretty that will make them forget that they are broken 8)

Anyone who pvps on a regular basis can tell you that is wrong when you consider the main change is that they retract into the hull now.

I would be tempted to fit blasters on a drake just to make this true. If it only had turret slots...

The AML drake is useful, what I posted above was a LOL-fit. It isn't supposed to be any good. /facepalm
