this would be awesome! the only aspect of this that i dont like is that itd be next to impossible to track where a ship warped to unless u get a good look at their alignment first.

if we could have this + an ion trail the direction that the ship went that fades fairly quickly thatd be f**king amazing!

either way really awesome work on the video!

Ship thruster tracers that fade out would be ace. if made to last a little longer and be visible to people that wasn't on grid when the ship warped but where shortly after, could add an interesting Intel mechanic

Theres a few people spouting in other areas over how this might create issues with not being able to tell where people warp off to.

This can be solved in a few ways. The first one being, maybe leave the residual trail for another second or so after warp. The second one being something more technical and flashy, like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJ-Ee5BhZF8

Either way, +1, love this. I would love to see massive fleet battles with these, especially with the warp acceleration changes upcoming. Would also be a great touch to have this on the warp exit as well.

+1 As far as the graphics. trails is just gonna make it look dumb. maybe this is an opportunity to make the tactical display have more to it. showing the general direction of any ship going to warp would be awesome. its a guessing game anyway if there are many celestials.

They did show a mockup of a new overlay idea, although it seemed to be something CCP Soundwave was promoting at the time, so no idea if that will happen now. Badly needed as well! :)

Well, it's not like you're disabling your overview in PvP. You'll still see their bracket on the overlay/HUD, and with the tracking camera, you'll easily see.

Only thing that CCP would really have to put in, would be an option to turn that flash of light off. I could see this being a small problem for people that are epileptic, especially that in your face.

Still absolutely love this idea, though.

super fast acceleration, with perhaps some kind of effect in the style of the new sensor overlay showing the targets outbound vector. Match it with slower deceleration, so we don't have interceptors that magically appear on grid.

"**CCP is changing policy, and has asked that we discontinue the bonus credit program after November 7th. So until then, enjoy a super-bonus of 1B Blink Credit for each 60-day GTC you buy!"**

Never forget.
