Nice turret, would love to see your take on a alien version ( especially since i try coming up with a design i liked last night and failed ).

Also the flying suit Spread animation is best i think.

somehow i noticed ppl wuould like the spread one... and its hardest to make ( making single particle to fly animated correctly) but iits duable...
i also thought about alien sentry but then, how AI would would act dropiing them in the scenatio is a another thing..still bending. but if ppl like the spread one,im willing to give it 6 frames for proper look each side.

The thing about the effect is that it has to match the hovering "woowoowoowoo" sound effect, so maybe it should a little more energy waves, and a little less like flames. So far, the spread and the pulsating effects seem to be the most adequate for that.

 I thought flying suites are not about jet engines at all. I thought it's about antigravity caused by elerium used to build one. It can hang in the air infenitely long time, and there are no (extra) fuel canisters.

I completely agree, hence why I would prefer an effect similar to the cyberdisc and HWP "energy shower". It looks truly alien, and it gives a sensation of hovering. The jet flames is one of the things that truly pissed me off in the 2012 XCOM: EU title.

Ditto. In XCOM EU devs made super-stupid decision to make the horrible hover-rocket-jet crap flying suit. Flight fuel???!! Aarrgh..

Ok, this is best i came up with flying suit animation. For me now it looks like its "hovering"  instead of bursting towards something, like the last ones... others would been good for movement animation, but since flying suit needs to be still ...this is prolly for the best.

Includes:
-Legs "wavy" hover particles (in every direction)
-Torsos backside ..gah brainfreeze,engines? ..animations, small pulsating ones. (in directions if looked into keypad 4,7,8,9,6. 1,2,3 wasnt needed imo since you cant see flying suits back.
-preview animations.
-horrid explanotary image.

have fun   ::)

Do you have the raw image file for the Elerium Chip? It'd be awfully useful!
