It's another Double Whammy Friday in blog land.

Does anyone like trails?! I hope you do because they're back in EVE as soon as Crucible hits!

CCP Mankiller is the man behind the new and improved trails. His new blog contains tons of pictures, a bunch of math and runs us through the history of his quest for the holy trail.

Check it out.

Glorious, glorious engine trails Big smile

For future improvements, can they get the "hotter in the middle" effect back too? With that and a tapering effect at the end, they'd be nearly perfect.

This actually explains some of why it took so long to restore the Trails. Very cool.
