New "OFFLINE" ship FX. Do not want...
 
I just finished downloading the new patch. I went to enter a ship battle, and get a giant cartoon OFFLINE hovering over my ship after getting attacked by a Breen cruiser. I really, really do not like this FX. How do I disable it, and others like it? (Since I'm sure there are other "system indicator" FX to go with it.)

If there isn't an option to disable it, then what files do I need to replace with a blank alpha map to disable it? That used to be the only way to get rid of the shield rings.

Seriously, whoever came up with that one needs to have their design portfolio reevaluated.

I actually don't mind it. At least it tells me what's going on with my ship without turning it into a rainbow supernova.

Is their any way to disable that particular effect without just turning off everything? Or has anyone located the texture map for it?

Yes after doing some research, I found the folder. Do a search on your computer for "Cryptic Studios", double click on that....then find the folder called "Star Trek Online" and delete that bad boy...BAM! Problem solved!

Oh ha ha...

The sad thing is that there are probably some here who after reading this, actually tried it, and are now having to download the whole game again...

Way to be a smartass...
