So far so good -

1. some target side damage not occuring, and sometimes it works.
2. the launchers on the DRAKE are all wrong - sorry - it was a missile boat already. I am not sure what the effects on the side of the ship have been for all this time but I ASSUMED they were "missile" launchers. Apparently not ...apparently they are airconditioning vents because the launchers are randomly placed on top of my ship. Honestly not a very integrated solution for the one ship that should have had it.
3. Integrated on the Raven is so nice....love the ICBM like effects

4. I LOVE the new ship inventory menu.

missile hardpoints are graphically too small on many ships.

That's how pretty much all modules have always worked -- when you install one weapon module, you get two (or three?) weapon models attached to your ship, and then only those that are pointing in the correct direction at the time are fired

I knew that but never having missiles launchers visually it all got confusing with the excitement of the trails...the explosions...the launchers!!! lol.

well done CCP its looking very promising. anyone else think that the missile trails should be lighter/brighter i.e. white smoke and trails? would be easier to see and more epic IMO (especially when flying towards your own ship).

also maybe have the trails stay for a bit (not long) go from white to grey to black and disappear so you can see where they came from, if its not too much to do/ask :)

Some feedbacks. Missile launcher effects are generally really good. I'm not seeing any complaints on my end with the visuals. But... On shooting a station, the missiles don't want to connect with the station model itself. Instead it only goes so far as the hit box, then disappears. Not sure if that is a bug or what. Secondly, the sounds. They just don't seem up to snuff for what a spaceship missile launcher should be.

Another thing. I've had a few times where a bomb launched from a Bomber didn't go off. Have duds been programmed in?

The Drake seems to use different mounting points for HAM and HML launchers. HAM launchers wind up placed on the Drakes 'mandibles' and along its spine, vs HML launchers over top the... eh... pre-modeled launchers I guess?

Seems to me they should mount in the same locations.

This might be a major one.

I noticed that Mjolnir Citadel Torps do not have any firing animation.
IE you press fire, and you get a damage notificiation and nothing else.

All the other citadel torps fire fine.

Also is it intentional that the Torpedo Launcher only fires one missile?

Rockets and Citadel Torps all fire multiple missiles. And i see three missile in the model

the 3d view in my fitting window and any info 3d views i have open seem to launch missiles as well if my current ship is shooting

-The bomb effects are a bit small and underwhelming right now, it could use a bit more 'boom'

- the launchers on the bottom of the phoenix appear to be linked in the reverse order; firing on a ship to your right causes the left launcher to fire (along with the two right side launchers), whereas firing on a ship to the left causes the right side turret to fire. This causes the missiles to clip through the ship sometimes. Might not be that clear, so let me know if you need pics (too lazy right now) :P

- Hit effects look nice, although they need sound effects as well. I assume that's WiP though.

Nice job all around, though. Zipping around in my 100MN tengu was pretty awesome, watching the missiles peel off and seek after the target was excellent. The citadel torpedo barrages look amazing as well, props.

Another thing, too. BOmbs still launch from the middle of a ship. They fly off, and only then does the launcher actually have the bomb disappear and it brings out another one. No firing animation or anything like that.

First let me say ...oh my god... the missiles and Amarr ships look amazing, and the little knight rider trace light on the prophecy and variants is SICK. Thank you for giving my Damnation and NightHawk a reason to come out of the station again

Second
oh oh oh I found a bug! I found a bug! ::jumps up and down:: there's a bug with the layer Missiles are rendered on :D (sorry I'm a Software QA IRL so these things excite me)

Ok SO,

Steps:

1.) Get in a ship with lots of missile Launchers ( I used the Night Hawk and Heavy assault Launcher II's)
2.) GO somewhere (I went to an asteroid Belt)
3.) Fire the pretty missiles at all the things (I shot asteroid because F*** space rocks)
4.) Open a Ship item description and click the thumbnail to open the Ship Model Viewer (I picked the Drake duhh missile
expansion)
5.) Expand the item viewer the full size of the screen

Expected results:
Item View Window will be the topmost rendered on screen asset for the players gawking..err "viewing" pleasure

Actual Results:
The Missile Effects are rendered a layer above the Item Viewer occluding the players view of the item/ship/player/npc etc

Not that I have any desire to cover up the gorgeous new missile effects in the first place.


Thx for letting us play with it early ^_^ <3

Missiles look badass, the Nemesis and Manticore look fantastic, but the other two bombers (although obviously unfinished) don't look too promising-- the Hound looks just like a breacher without the top fin and the Purifier just looks... silly?

Unfortunate side effect of how cool missiles look now: lots of gun effects look bad in comparison, capital blasters in particular.

What's the ETA on minmatar v3ing? Also, will you be V3ing pirate ships (the ones that have custom models rather than being re-skinned T1 hulls)?

Heavy launchers on the Stabber seem to be just a *bit* too big. They clip each other when two are placed in the mid mounts. Well, they seem a bit too big on pretty much any cruiser...

A professional astro-bastard was not available so they sent me.

The seems to be an error with the cruise launchers, as they don't actually launch a missile they look like they spawn then fly off

I noticed that there are no models for the missiles.
Is this intentional, unfinished or broken?

Unable to blow up wrecks.

The removal of the inventory and ship button is totally unnerving.

Location of launchers on raven is illogical. On top of each other on the wing tip facing up and down.. would not fit in the ship.

Tengu looks great.

Drake... wth!!! Are all of those launcher looking modules on the side of the drake just scoops for gathering extra helium atoms as you zoom through space? Placing launchers all over the drake makes the side modules look totally dumb and duplicitous. The drake is a very streamlined tight warfighting platform. Now it looks all Sanford and Son.

Missiles look awesome in flight. Groups and streaming singles.
