No Visible Shield Status for Most of Group - Can it be turned on?
Hi! I normally play in a group of 2-4. When there are just two, I can see the status of the other person's shields around their character pic circle in the group window. However, when we add more peeps, I cannot see status of their shields. No matter how we group, we can only see shields of person who falls second in OUR group window.

This makes it difficult for myself (science) and especially our tank (engineer) to help out our paper thin fly boy targets (aka escorts :) ) pre-emptively. They have to be taking hull damage before it shows up in group window on their HP bar.

Am I missing a switch or option somewhere to show shields for all party members?

I was having this problem for the longest time, but one of the recent patches fixed it for me. I play in a 4 man group a lot, and it used to be that only the first name in the party list displayed shields. It's all fixed for me now though.
