Black Hole (Planet Type)
« on: December 08, 2017, 12:28:54 AM »
Once upon a time, long long ago, there was a game called Space Empires IV.  One of the things it did really friggin well was black holes. The visuals were awesome (could've been a teensy bit better* but did the job) and the mechanical effect was solid.

One of the things I want to do / see done is to see this come back in AIW2.  Even if its just the visuals, I'd be happy; trying to nudge things towards the black hole in an RTS probably won't work out very well, but it might be ?Fun? ("where did all my turrets go!? did they get sucked in??" Yes, yes they did).

*Occasionally the particles would clump up and create a ring that'd create a noticeable band in the effect.
