Those swoop trails...

I just played a game on the ESF World server (server #2 I believe) and they had the serverside swoop trails we heard about in ESF Chat. They looked badass and true to the show.

I know it's non-essential eyecandy but in a 3v3 server where everyone was whoring basic melee to death and chainswooping everywhere, my maximum fps drop was 2. To put that into a relavant context, I lose about the same when two people charge kamehameha's at the same time.

I see reasons why it should be in, I can't think of any why it shouldn't. The trails exist already as it is so it wouldn't be much work to have them officially included.

Is it publicly available, or exclusive to ESF World servers?

And dude, have a talk with harsens. If you already have the plugin then surely the only work involved would be to integrate it into the code as a cvar?

If this trail thing your talking about is a sprite. It should be a server side thing so it can be deactivated if it is to be implimented. Cuz if it's a sprite, and you have a room with 10 people or even 8 your FPS can go down, and you'd see these lines everywhere.

(though it would be easier to follow people)

Honestly i'm not too fond of the idea. But it really doesn't matter.

it would be nice eye candy
but it would rape your fps
Maybe someone (Hars) could make it into one of those "default off" special effects that can be turned on in the options menu if you can spare the FPS

That means clientside variable, you can disable it at any time.

^ W00t \o/

I still think it should be part of ESF's code but this is good. Does this mean I can have swoops trails on any server I join provided i'm running the plugin, or just my server and the other servers that are running the plugin (ESF-World)?

Plugins you have only work on your own server. So if the server doesn't have it, then you cant see it.
