Polarized Disruptor FX
So I picked up one of these new beam arrays and tried it out on one of my ships. I really liked how the phased tetryon arrays had a slightly different hue, and I wanted to see if the new disruptors look any different than standard disruptors.

Well, I wasn't able to see any difference. But wouldn't it be cool if it had some of the particle-around-the-beam effect that polaron beams do? (without the waviness) I think that a little visual difference would be enough for me to want to collect them all to outfit a ship in polarized disruptors.

So do they look "polaron purple" or are the the regular green of the regular disruptors?

*EDIT* - Never mind, i see what you mean... yeah this needs to be addressed. Would be nice to see it as green beam with purple particles on the outside, or vice versa.

I'm completely for some unique visuals, as is poldis feels incredibly half done.

I like to think it was an oversight, or someone forgot to link the visuals, because a simple hue change does not take very long at all.

The models for the ground versions of the weapons don't have a unique appearance or effect either. The Phased Tetryon weapons do, so it doesn't feel right that the Polarized Disruptor weapons don't when they have unique icons as well.

I support this. Would be nice for some colour variation.

*Some* of the beams (like specific suffixes) have unique art.

There was a guy in kerrat the other day running them, and they fired a sort of 'faded' purple that looked like nothing I'd ever seen before- I immediately assumed that this was the visuals for the polarized disruptors- but when I finally got some found out they just fired normal green.

Wish I knew what the guy's name was so I could find out which ones I need to get that have the visuals hooked up.

Phased Polarons from the Jem'Hadar FE, most likely. They're basically purple phasers, in beam FX and sound.

I'd kinda like to see them primarily green with a purplish hued aura, or maybe throwing off purplish particulate "sparks". Something small but distinctive.
