I’m sure most players have seen the Space Stonehenge floating in the blue gas cloud with lights swirling around it, especially since it’s been in the game for a long time.
It’s definitely a cool backdrop to see when entering various mission / exploration sites. Years ago when I was running Cosmos missions I took a screenshot of it and afterwards never really gave it a second look.
Well today I was in a site with Space Stonehenge and after clearing out the NPC’s, I started looting and salvaging wrecks when a flicker of light from the center of the site caught my eye.
Next thing I know Lighting Bolts shoot out of the center rock and connected with some of the pillars around it which became electrified for a bit, then everything went back to normal, just lights in the blue gas cloud swirling around the site.
Needless to say I was both surprised and amazed. I’ve been in lot’s of Space Stonehenge sites and have never seen that before. I kept watching it and found out it happens every few minutes, it’s a very cool graphics animation that adds more lifelike realism to the site.
Yeah, some may think it’s no big deal but every little bit of extra graphics animation the art team adds to the game helps create better immersion into the actual game setting.
This thread is to show appreciation to CCP’s art team for all the extra little things they do to make this game seem more lifelike.
Thank you CCP.
