Massive White Blobs in Mirror Universe Event
 
Last night while doing the Mirror Universe event, I noticed two massive white blobs in the space past the station. You can fly to and through them, so they aren't in the background like a star. I don't know if they were an intended change or if there is something wrong, so I thought I'd post here, but I will say they are painfully bright, as in my eyes literally hurt, and they obscured any ships that past in front of them, including their targeting reticles.

I didn't think to grap a screenshot at the time, but if so desired I'll try next time.

If these are intentional I hope consideration would be given to removing them, or at least making them way less annoying.

Some of the Borg encounter missions have them as well. They seem to be pulsars or something and are very hard to look at as they are bright plus they take an excessive amount of gpu power to render. Suggest that the next patch remove them or have the ability to turn them off in the graphics control.

Also occurring in the T'kanis Nebula (ignore the file names... got confused while naming them). They're causing major slow-down during warp-in, so couldn't be in a worse location considering you get shot as soon as you arrive:

And also in the small groups of hostile ships floating around in Sirius:

Yeah I get those in a few DSE and kling nebula's, which make them totally unplayable . :mad:

I've been calling for a "Turn all bloom off" mode forever. I would love to have it in response to this c**p.

I saw these for the first time in Red Alerts last night. Very annoying, lost my ship and target more than a few times.

I've been seeing the white blobs in the Red Alerts for several days now. Makes it extremely difficult to play since it slows you way down.
Whatever they're supposed to be they're not necessary at all. Better to just get rid of them if it fixes the problem.

they were originally in the no win scenario on tribble but somehow seem to have escaped to everywhere else.

I get these giant stupid blurry blobs in EVERY SPACE ENCOUNTER. This huge glaring visual bug is at least a month old and not even listed in known graphical issues sticky thread? Look at these screen shots. This is pretty shoddy if something so (1) visually stupid, and which (2) really hinders gameplay, can go completely ignored for so long.

Yeah the following is in the Empire Defense Against: Romulans, Cardassians, and Borg, as shown in the Screen shots.
