The engine lights are certainly a real improvement on the old lighting, while on most ships the lights are only a bit brighter, I noticed that the Rattlesnake engine glare seem a bit different then before, comparable to the engine lights of the Laser-Sacri on the Incarna Login Screen.

I guess some ships are getting their SM3 treatment now.

Yeah, I fly an Ishkur and I noticed that the rocket flare is violet rather than blue. It also seems to have a bit more of a glow to it. When you zoom in, however, you can see the low-res texture used for the effect. This is probably just for the test variant though.

Ya was really hoping to see a more defined engine effect, and possibly the trails, but hell CCP can't do that many awesome things in 1 sisi release LOL

i just took a providence out

it looks like its on fire on one end.....perhaps a bit too much flame?

I do think it is nice to have it turned up a bit.

Here's some image critique showing the low texture resolution in the new effect.

The new color sucks-- down with purple engines.

The glows on the engines also seem a little more excessive. If anything, less glow and a better looking effect (like the scorpion or the loginscreen maller varient) would be nicer.

I have to say that I like the new effect, including the blue-purple. Some of the old effects have been rather dull, especially about the engines.

Yeah, I like it as well. They just have to do something about that texture.

Ya i like the new effects as well, and honestly the providence should look like a ball of flames on the back the entire back are engines pooring out intense power to move those giant ships...

Though i agree also that the texture on the effect appears low even with all settings at highest....

Engine dust / particle trails next ummm yummy

Yeah, I love the login Maller thruster effect. It's more in line with a Hall thruster effect. Ideally, every ship should have a thruster effect like that and the color of the thruster burn would change as your velocity changes. Personally, I would go with the color spectrum featured in a Hertzsprung-Russell diagram. Red colors would be used for low velocities, a light blue or turquoise for the higher velocities, and an intense blue or violet for the afterburner or microwarpdrive velocities.
