We never want our ships to explode. We spend lots of time making sure our ships don't explode. But if we are going to explode, it should look nice, shouldn't it? Ship Artist and FX Artist Ian Richards thought the same, and so he took the time to rebuild the FX that play when your ship is damaged, all the way up until it explodes. This launches next week on PC, and very soon after on Console. You can see the full difference in the new FX in the video below.

I like the updated damage FX, but I prefer the old explosions over the new ones.

Yeah, probably something that didn't need to be done. It's ok I guess, not something that intrigues me either way.

I would not have minded it if they added it as an additional way to die.. rather then dyeing in the same manner every time. but just to replace one with another.. not that much better.. I like when parts fly off the ship. but more in favor of seeing ship split into separate pieces.

could be like a dice roll everytime you die.. get something alittls different to break up some of the same thing, would add a little more spice i guess. but ya id rather they put there efforts toward a pvp battle zone with a capture the flag / king of the hill combo. with a very big map. at least as big as gon cra

I agree that it would have been better to just mix it in with the old one just like the new ground death animations they added.

I honestly don't pay too much attention to the animation when I explode. I like the/d the animation as it is/was, but, at least they're trying, I suppose.
