View Full Version : Please Remove Random "Fog Planet" Effect

This happens sometimes on explore missions; some of the systems have this random super heavy fog effect which does nothing for the visual atmosphere and just amounts to a cheap whiteout / pinkout effect that makes it impossible to see or find anything, including my own away team. It's just unappealing, annoying, and adds nothing to these missions; and it obscures what I assume might actually be nice scenery that I'm sure someone put a lot of work into.

An easy solution is to change your characters uniform while on the planet, it disables the atmospheric effects... it sounds daft but it works (well works for me) :D
Just right click on your characters informormation box at the top left corner of your screen and select "change costume" :D

Nah, don't remove the fog. Do something with it. Give us (and our away team members, and I suppose humanoid hostiles as well) some personal beacons. Either the ones that sit on our shoulders and whisper sweet little somethings in our ears like we got in the lower levels of Drozana (mine said to kill all the phonies) or the wrist/weapon mounted ones we've seen on the show.
That way at least fog will be slightly less... unfun.
