about the coolest thing I have ever seen..
 
Maybe make the twin jet thrusters deploy on the wingtips and be 90% smaller
 

EDIT!: 

Could you make the wings have the option of see-though?

And could the red sniper bullet blast rings have a rigidbody behind them to throw your buggy around? :)

That would be nearly impossible, because particles can't have rigidbodies attached to them.

(Sorry for gravedigging!!! It's just such a cool post that I feel the need to respond...)
 
First off, just wow. Amazing effects. They make the game look much more modern and hi-tech.
 
However, I do protest against this response to Panzer's idea. It is possible, I think. If I understood Panzer correctly, they're asking for a shockwave-type effect, so you get knocked by a force if you were close to the laser's passing... right? If so, you could have an extra couple of lines of code pick up what was near the shot as it went by (spherecast?), then apply a slightly delayed force... if you did this every time a ring was released, it would give a good effect... or even the whole time...
 
Particles can't have rigidbodies attached. They can have particle colliders, which give the same effect, but I don't see why they need physics in the first place.

Well, I loooove the new entry/exit whirlwind tornado sparks thingy :D
Likes
1. obviously, the entry/exit effect
2. new wing shader looks cool
3. laser hit effects
Could use improvement
1. Plasma trails: Those look really cool, but they're a little weird to me. First, they don't make any sense, like, at all, and second, they seem too big for the buggy

The lasers look like glowing green toxic radioactive waste.

Laser hit looks like a splash.

Color is dull, and the glow makes it look like toxic waste.

Honestly, Lamp, the green lasers do not look normally any less than you say they do. In fact, what I was attempting was to make the lasers look brighter.

The plasma trail is probably quite a bit too large, I thought so as well. The buggy has two engines.

You need a jet model attached to the buggy, not just have it come out of its, you know. Also both jets are suppost to aim the same direction, forward. And the jet streams are too long, it's like a trail. Buggy is small, I think it should have 1 jet. Actually, it should have no jets at all! It's a "Buggy", not a Rocket Buggy.

I like it, any chance of it getting in the newest version of mars 3?  The jets are awesome.  Downloadecd the newest mars, but the jets aren't there :(

I didn't read it, because I was excited about the new release lol.  Here's what I saw.  
 
blahblahblahblahblah DOWNLOAD *click*  
 
I did read some of it.  Maybe if they are implemented, they could be optional!  That would be nice for people who like and don't like them.
