I was reinstalling my a2 yesterday and I noticed something odd about one of the images during installation........ ........I've never seen this weapon before..:Puzzled:...has anyone?
That would be the Ion Storm
Oh! okay thanks..just looks a little different. I thought it was some kind of red shockwave, specially when viewing it from the intro movie. :p
Speaking of which, this weapon would really benefit from a facelift. I think a new sod is in order. The stock one looks too dated now in my opinion.
I always thought it was meant to be the repulsion wave, that is displayed in game as a red wave and the cardassian ship is shown as having its engines blown away and shoved away from the hit.
Though that said, I suppose it could be the ion storm because it looks more like that. Then again, the intro movie clips aren't exactly much like the effects in the game! take the ion cannon for a great example...

i think the sod is ok it only needs better textures that let it look like in the intro and new sprites for the lightning effects :)
Yeah, I had always thought that that was the repulsion wave... But it does look more like the ion storm effect come to think of it.
Is a spherical explosion/blast-wave like effect even possible?
If only the special weapons where as effective (and as beauty) as the ones in the intro.
I'll tack it onto my todo list. seems like it could be cool.
Yes..please do Achilles! A spherical shockwave weapon like that would blow all the other special weapons out of the waters. It fits right in considering it's already in the intro movie and on one of the images during installation :naughty:.
