Something I haven't seen in a long time that should probably be at least looked at again considering the improvments in the engine and computers since it was removed... but I think we should look at bringing back the shield splash effects for ICC.
After seeing this Image, I thought about how long it has been since we have seen this effect. Just thought it would be nice to see it back, or even remade!
Just a thought.
EDIT: What format are animations in ds? I could take a shot at making something.

I'm pretty sure this will fall within the 'too much work to be worth it' category. From what I've heard, it was removed due to being a giant server load or something. Anyway, I wouldn't expect it back any time soon.

exactly the sort of thing that would bring a server to its knees

Fighters, repair drones, an EMP cannon and torpedoes. Mother of lords, I desire to be that dread.

the server tells the client where things are hit already. Why not have the animation be client-side?

Nothing is ever rendered on the server.
The effect math is broke and doesn't render correctly, which is why it's disabled.
