Much better... the trails are so much more modest now too.  I'm getting a noticable drop in framerate on one mission, but that might have to do with the 15 caps and 6+ fighter wings running around.
who needs a signature? ;)

Does it require any additional files?

Now... do you take damage if you fly too deep into the big ships trails? Or is it just wash?

Either way, it's pretty cool. :yes:

zip has been updated, you can now specify the textures that will be applyed to the three diferent glow types via a table entry betweem the scor and the (old nebula) trails section
$Thruster Bitmap 1: normal normal
$Thruster Bitmap 1a: normal afterburner
$Thruster Bitmap 2: beam normal
$Thruster Bitmap 2a: beam afterburner
$Thruster Bitmap 3: thrid glow normal
$Thruster Bitmap 3a: thrid glow afterburner
thrid glow is sort of like the normal glow but it is always on, ie it doesn fade when they point away from you.

these are all optional, they will get set to what they are normaly if you don't enter them.

I will work on disableing them all together if desired, and setting factors for each type

Incredibly awesome Bob, but I notice that the screenies don't have specular highlighting.
Are the Specular Highlighting/Engine Glows/other stuff into one exe?

 
I also noticed that the lighting effects doesnt "fade" like they use to, like when u turn the ship towards the light in the tech room, every "face" of the ship luminates as if it went on, then off when turned away from the light rather then fades in as if in real life or before.

Works pretty good, and looks great Bob, only weirdness I get is slowdowns in the main hall screens when I am exiting the game.  To be more precise, the cursor movement slows to a crawl and sometimes takes a while to register a click - seems only to affect the exit though.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.
