The beam effect is annoying when creating missions in which the story includes a map transition that is not supposed to be a "beaming".

For example, in the mission I'm currently creating, the player's Away Team searches one floor of a building, then takes a turbolift to another floor. The second floor is a different map - i.e. interact with a "Cardassian lift" objects triggers a map transition to a second custom map. But when the player starts the next floor they appear to beam in, because it's a map transition.

So it would be handy to be able to turn the beam effect off sometimes.
