Wow. Those effects both look really nice. I know it's only graphical, but it adds so much to the polish of the game. I'm impressed.

I love the updates, I just wish I used the features more. Poison and combat bots seem a bit underpowered when I look at Personal Laser Defense, Nukes, or even plain Tank shells.

I don't know why, but your FFF animation looks much better than the game looks by me.

So it appears team engineer is switching from Grünkreuz to Blaukreuz, poor Biters.
Very nice animation by the way. The new particle system is truly amazing, not only allowing for optimisation.

Animation of dying robot is cool, but I wish there was a smoke that comes form robot after it's destroyed. It would be cool if destroyed car or tank would spawn some dark smoke as well.

humm poison is going from a cloud of radioactive green to a cotton candy blue, i would suggest that it remain the radioactive green color, for anyone that has played killingfloor2 their healing cloud is blue and the poison is green, i realize that is a small detail, but sharing my feedback.

Another point I've noticed. Should the icon for the poision capsule still remain green, if the toxic cloud is blue now? If changed, this could cause confusion with the slowdown capsule.
Maybe a green iteration for poision and some bluish update for slowdown could be considered.

The poison capsule will have a new icon

This is fantastic. I love both new poison cloud animation (way better than what was previously). It is perfect. And the robot destruction animations and variations are just cute and awesome.

Thank you!

It all looks great, and an improvement over what was there before. Best of all, none of the animations are not distracting from the game.

Crashing robots should destroy/damage things on which they land on

The poison looks so much better. The original effect always seemed a bit out of place or too simple to me

Also, does anybody uses slowdown capsules? To me they are underpowered.
Lovely change btw!

It's a wonder how good the game is, if you consider how bad they are with the FFF numbers :mrgreen:

Should add explosions when dead drones crash land, to mask the abrupt transition from live graphics to dead graphics.
