Is that a specific star eater model?
Or is it the Imperial Colossus?
Because from the behavior it looks like a colossus that shoots stars.
Can you confirm that pre-lithoid ships have new engine/weapon fx?
Because that would be the best part of the dev diary!
And the rest is awesome too!
It' a specific star eater model.
Well the older ships actually got a visual update a while ago, can't recall exactly when but I suppose it might've been around the anniversary patch last year. Tho they didn't get unique styles on them (except is the caravanner that got an overall vfx overhaul) , so they're all "only" blue with sometimes different shapes to match the shape of the engines. Sadly no updates on the weapon vfx.
Thank you, happy to hear that!
Is that final explosion stage handled as a single animation asset?
I ask because... I really want something like that as the death animation for a titan, colossus, juggernaut, or habitat (scaled down, obviously). One of those big things going POP neeeeds a more satisfying death.
It's, feel free to scale it down and use it for everything! Big explosions everywhere!
