Well, when I first ran the 1.8 Alpha 4 I cycled the ships to watch them ...

the "new Effects" didn't grow on me , at all......But that's not important ( some trails could use more space from the projectiles so they don't look like vampire spikes & the Xenophobe weapon could seriously use the effect upgrade
such as the one by digdug :

Code: Select all

<Effect>
				<Ray
						style=			"jagged"
						shape=			"tapered"
						length=			"108"
						
						primaryColor=	"#00d5ff"
						secondaryColor=	"#006b80"
						>
					<Events>
						<GetParameters>
							(block (
								(damageHP (@ gData 'damageHP))
								)
								{
									width: (mathScale damageHP 10 140 20 40 50)
									intensity: 60
									}
								)
						</GetParameters>
					</Events>
				</Ray>
			
				<ParticleComet
						particleCount=	"200"
						primaryColor=	"#00d5ff"
						>
					<Events>
						<GetParameters>
							(block (
								(damageHP (@ gData 'damageHP))
								)

								{
									particleCount: (mathScale damageHP 10 140 100 300 50)
									length: 72 ;(mathScale damageHP 10 140 60 220 50)
									width: 15
									}
								)
						</GetParameters>
					</Events>
				</ParticleComet>
			</Effect>
The Purple Square I write of is the Mask image of the Centauri Command Ship.....the MediumShips2 that carries the image isn't present....but the mask is still in there.

What I think is Important is that the game has a few very good, tried and true ship images that I think should not be scrapped in favor of the fancy new ones, but re-purposed to lesser funded factions, I have Always wanted to see the economy of other factions in the game ( mostly started because the Ringers had no ships of their own ).

I think that ( with the exception of that Huge Monstrosity that I think is used for Debug ) I think the old ships that are being replaced should be given a new life.

I was never actually a fan of the Centauri Command Ship as an actual ship - more like used as an Auton or small station for ( say ) the Outlaws or somebody small and under funded..

But I just figured I would put that out there ( again ) ......
