I feel like even a near miss from a heavy turbolaser shot should still do some damage.

Near misses do damage fighters in the canon, maybe increase the accuracy of capital ships slightly against fighters to simulate the fact that they don't need to be direct hits to hurt the fighter? (even though ingame it will appear that way)

as I said, the game doesn't work that way, it doesn't register "near" misses, it only registers hits. That, and if you had played the mod you'd know turbolasers can't shoot at fighters ;)

That's why I said it would *simulate* near misses.
But sorry, I haven't played it recently enough to recall that.

After photoshopping 30 images into 3, you can now see how the new engine glows look ingame. At some point I also want to redo the ones on the larger vessels, but that'll have to wait as I first want to overhaul the starfighter hardpoints. The glows ingame are visible, especially once you get a close up on a fighter, but aren't overly present, so when zoomed out they wont be a thorn in the eye.

Additionally I've changed the hitboxes on all the starfighters. Previously the game registered a hit in a box around the fighter, now the game only registers hits directly on the ship mesh, meaning what you see is what you hit, and vice versa. This'll make them slightly harder to hit, but for the sake of realism I wanted to implement this regardless.
