Dear Cryptic, I liked the flashing console displays.
 
Dear Cryptic,

I liked how only the console display screens flashed to denote interactabilty, instead of the whole console, in the mission Chasing Shadows

Thanks.

I just wanted to second this! I noticed this when playing "Skirmish" and thought that was a nice update, hopefully they will go this route in the future.

I also liked this. Although, a little frustrating at first when I was expecting the whole thing to flash.

And theres just a little bit of Impulse flair when hitting evasive maneuvers now instead of the blue rings

On the topic of new graphics I have to say I'm not thrilled with the new graphic for tractor beam.
I dont see what purpose there was in changing it up.

Same with the grenade throwing animation. My male tac officer now chucks grenades like most chicks throw a football.

Seems to me that it's more like they shot put grenades now...

I really really REALLY liked this in "Skirmish". It was so much more awesome and subtle to have to "LOOK" for the flashing screens on the consoles.. rather than having the whole freaking console flashing. So much more appropriate and sophisticated to just make the screens flash. Having the whole console flash reminded me of games like "Dragon's Lair"... and not in a good way. Flashing screens is WAY better.

also: the Defera sector "Sector Space" is one of the most gorgeous places in all of STO.

Can only second this. The console looked good that way!

I agree it was soooooo much better having the panel flash instead of the entire console. it was such an eyesore, but that makes it much, much cleaner. doing that with other objects, like lockers or crates would simply require adding a small panel to them and have that flash instead.
