an eyecandy mod for Starsector
Trailer Moments is a small eyecandy mod that adds Nicke’s MagicTrails to a handful of vanilla weapon projectiles. It fulfills no practical purpose besides making some weapons look subjectively prettier and as such isn’t recommended to use if you have trouble running Starsector on your computer.
Currently supported weapons:
– Gauss Cannon
– Hypervelocity Driver
– Heavy Mauler
– Mauler Battery
All trails are added via script without affecting any vanilla files and as such are fully compatible with any mods that would change these in any way. It should also be noted that the mod will affect mod weapons that use the affected vanilla projectiles.

Are you going to add more weapons to the list?
maybe, maybe not. The intention is for trails to be the exception rather than the norm. Putting them only on weapons that I feel justify them. That said, I just noticed that the Mjolnir was missing from the list in the first post.
Does this affect save games?
It’s a purely cosmetic utility mod that can be added and removed at will without affecting savegames.
As the standards for mod art have risen higher and higher, vanilla projectiles in particular have started to look pretty boring by comparison, in my opinion. This helps change that.
