This has probably been said already but anyways:

I just saw this and it looks really nice and all but now I want animated missile launchers more than ever before.

This certainly hasn't come up before.

They are working on it though, just let them revamp turrets first as that's the easiest bit, then they can get to missiles which will take a lot more work.

What was the reason behind missile launchers never being physically present on the ship?

Probably the fact that missiles were added as an after thought, and (if memory serves) only became the primary caldari weapon a little way into the game.
After that I'd imagine it just never got much attention.

I seem to remember it being an issue with Destiny (the physics engine), missiles are created at some specific point in the ship hitbox (possibly the center?), and at the time the engine couldn't handle missiles coming from different locations.

Or... I may, in fact, have **** memory.

I don't know about you but I would not be confortable with the art team balancing guns. So yeah, win CCP. Makes one wonder what the hell the non-art teams are up to though...

And missiles are coming.
1. Turret models
2. Turret Effects
3. Missiles (who uses them anyway?)

Looks like Raven to me... hence those 6 are either torpedo or cruise launchers (since it can't fit six blasters). Btw this must be a new Raven model...

PS: someone on the other forum pointed to that part... :)

Except that a few frames later the video clearly says: Electron Blaster Cannon II

This is what I initially thought as well...but when I replaced it I noticed they actually named which guns those are...and they aren't missile/cruise/torpedo launchers. They are some other turret.

They look very nice, but I can't help wondering what's the point of doing this when most people have their viewpoint zoomed out with effects turned off?

Something else that won't matter when I'm zoomed out in combat or chocked up in lag.

It will however be overused in a glutton of youtube videos and will give potential customers the illusion that Eve is intricate and especially detailed in nature.

So kudos on offering something that will not deliver functionality and then failing on the "expectation management" you're famous for wanting more of.

For someone determined to poop on everything that CCP do, you certainly seem to be around a lot. I can't help but wonder what is missing in your life that you derive such obvious pleasure from whining.

They did, but Raven can't fit 6 turrets... only 4...

Moreover "Electron Blaster Canon II" sign span over two different ships with different "turret/launchers" models...

Movie-makers, perhaps?

Also, ratters and plex runners will certainly appreciate the added eye candy. Wink

For everyone else, there's the new nebulae. No matter how zoomed out you may be, you will always notice those!
