Ships[edit | edit source]

  • Update to default ship Trail FX:

    • The impulse engine glowing dot is gone.
      • The dot will only appear when full-impulse is activated.
      • This means the glowing dot serves as a visual tell for the player when full-impulse is activated, even when throttled down.
      • The dots will still appear for shield/engine visuals where applicable.
  • Many beam array energy weapons have had their basic attack, Fire at Will and Beam Overload weapon FX reduced in width by about half.
  • Some dual-beam bank weapon basic attack, Fire at Will and Beam Overload weapon FX have also been reduced in width.
    • These changes were done to:
      • Improve the game’s sense of scale in space by making ships feel larger relative to beam attacks.
      • Enhance visual fidelity by making beam weapons feel more precise.
      • Ease visual clutter in FX heavy missions and TFOs.
