Nuthin much just wanted to ask if u guys planned on bringing back the swoop trails and making them looking even sexierrrr.

Also i wanted 2 ask if u guys wud finally add splashing 4 when someone is meleed into the water really fast, like in the show where a huge blast of water splashes out, and also for when someone is knocked into the ground can u guys make a big blast of smoke 2, as well as DBZ like smoke and explosions to beams as well, it wud look so much better.

Sort of like the smokey explosions in LBZ, quick and thick and fades pretty quickly 2. The Explosions now are pretty small, and dont really pack that punch that makes beams look effective and kool. Hope yall get wat im sayin lol, good job tho the new updates are sexy! :yes:

To my knowledge, dust trails aren't coming back. They killed fps.

I have a machine built in the Dark Ages and swoop dust never affected me =S

I find it hard to believe that you can have pixel shading, real fog and clouds, rain, burning skies, realistic water etc and youre worried about the fps hit of some dust trails?

And yes, I think we are bringing back dust trails. I think they're even in the Open Beta. I don't know if they're going to look sexierrrr, though.

They did look nice in the old days, but I do remember quite a lot of lag on my computer.. Damn.. I had a slow computer at the time. I bet my FPS wouldn't drop much at all. Though, with the new coders on board, anything possible.

If they're coming back we'll do them differently this time anyways
(as in, with our new fx/particle system)
The old particle system is what made them so laggy
Though the (current) water recharge splash effect thingie still uses the old system I think

Since when did we say that we're having water splashes?
Since we announced players can use the fx editor to add whatever they'd like.

The key to success is to lower your expectations.

When youre a pessimist, you wont care how long it takes to get anything.

You'll also hate everything as a result of focusing exclusively on the negative aspects of things.
