I'm taking a break from nebulas and trying my hand doing some special effects. Here's some images I found on the internet for inspiration. I'm sure I can do something like this in the game.
UPDATE: I finished doing the effect for planetary missiles... I think it looks pretty epic! Screenshot of them about to blow up my helpless Destroyer class scout vessel...
They look even better when moving... The trails are super long... and I managed to use some tricks to get the particle count is pretty close to the vanilla version (84 vs 58)!
