EVE Online – The Return of Trails

As I posted a while back, one of the things that brings me back to my early days in EVE Online, when the game was fresh and new to me, was the trails streaming back from my Cormorant.

But trails were part of the classic graphics and did not make the transition to the upgraded graphics.  When the classic graphics went away with Apocrypha more than two and a half years ago, trails went with them.

Well, it looks like one of the things that might be coming back with next week’s Crucible expansion for EVE Online is trails.

CCP has a dev post up about the trails and why the old ones went away, what it took to make new ones, and how they happened to come together in time for the upcoming expansion.

Not sure that is enough to get me to resubscribe.  But trails, the new nebulae, and potentially a new ship to fly has me thinking about it.  One of the things that has always drawn me to the game is the graphics.  Space is beautiful.
