I hit this issue today when I took my Constitution out for a spin. The shadows were grainy and flickered across the hull randomly.

I had also noticed much earlier (Closed Beta, even) that there was some weird artifacting on the wall textures, but couldn't quite figure out what was wrong. Now I'm pretty sure the artifacting was this shadows issue.

Anyhow, I set shadows to LOW and didn't notice any significant degradation of image quality in space. We'll see what happens on the ground. Earthdock looked fine, at least.

For reference: ATI Radeon HD 4890
All features maxed except for Dynamic Lighting, which is turned off to workaround ground combat crash bug and now Shadows set to LOW.
