This si the 2nd time ive posted this therad because i can never find it again... there should be a button/link that allows us to find previous posts our accounts have made. Anyways!
The warp/impulse trails look pretty and awesome and all but do other not agree with me that it would be better looking for the warp trails ONLY to show in warp and the impules engine trails ONLY when out of warp?
ahh ty and yes im surprised they havent doen that already i mean really why would the impule drive be active in warp and why would there be a warp feild outside of warp? O.o
Well, actually it is canon that ship maintain stable Warp Bubbles even when out of warp (just in case they need to go to Warp on short notice), but the point is that the Warp engines are not responsible for the motion of the ship at sublight, and should not, therefore, generate a Warp Trail.
Agreed. Warp Drive should have it's own trail, even longer when at high-warp and brighter as the ship accelerates. However, the impulse drive shouldn't have a trail--period. The Impulse Drive, itself, should just get brighter depending on the ship's sub-light speed.
