Beams lock up when charging down
« on: August 20, 2012, 07:51:53 PM »

I've noticed that during the charge down process, they abruptly stop tracking their targets. This has been around for a long time, but I couldn't figure out what it was at first (I thought it was something in the modded weapons I was testing, where it was more obvious due to their longer cooldown time) - but then I more recently observed (and noticed it long enough to remember, instead of forgetting in the heat of the battle >.<) it happening quite evidently with vanilla weapons (specifically I noticed it with tac lasers)

This is working exactly as intended. (Moving + fading out beams looked bad and/or possibly had some mechanics issues. It was a while ago, so I don't remember exactly.)
