View Full Version : Excessive Turbo Pad Effect

Has anybody on the board noticed these blue bands on the ship when you hit 5+ turbo pads? It looks like Back To The Feisar![Tm]

Apologies about the pun, the Repulsor and the faded lines of said effect, there.

If I'm not missing what you're really referring to it's the effect you get when flying over mag strips.

Maybe, but this picture explains better. On this one, I'm not on a Mag - Strip.

I don't believe thats caused by boost pads, I think it's when a ship behind you has a Leech Beam and it has locked itself onto your ship at least thats when I see it.

Intresting why you say that. I did interrupt a leech beam attack. A very nice effect anyway.

looks like this when you are leeching someone else :)

Yes but it also happens when they lock on to you, I am 99% sure.
