Balloon Damage Visuals
« on: August 10, 2016, 06:12:46 pm »
I notice that most balloons, when damaged, droop downward (every ship besides Mobula). Thing is, if the balloons contain a lighter-than-air gas, they should behave like the Mobula's balloon: shrink upward. The buoyancy of the gas should cause it to press upward into the top of the frame.
