There is a small discussion here at DOTA, so we decided to leave the decision to you. It's about fighter engines - should they have:

1. Just glows (glow becomes bigger with more thrust)

2. Just thrusters (the standard FS2 thruster model)

3. Thrusters+glows (let's use both)

You're a wrongularity from which no right can escape!

as all the normal FS2 fighters have both, i usually give them both, excepted special cases.

You know, you're right. We should use Particle Systems' thruster method for Freespace. All we have to do is define two lens-flares at the source of the thruster, one set to trail (IE make a thruster cone) and one set to glare (IE put the actual glare into the thing and cast the shadows) and hang them off the Z+ action channel. Of course that requires self shadowing of models and event handling for models on a per model bases in the engine.
