A while back this was posted:

And then in the December Ask Cryptic I got this answer:
Q: Kasensal: A while back, this was posted, and the masses rejoiced: (ability to turn off ship animations) How come this was not in the previous engineering report? What plans do you have regarding these animations? These are a big deal to a lot of people.
A: We have been investigating the issue and have come to a solution for some (but not all) of the animations. We plan to roll out the options once everything has been finalized. No ETA on it yet, though.
However, it hasn't been mentioned since and it hasn't appeared in any engineering report, either as an in development or under investigation. Has it been abandoned, or is there still intention to do this? A lot of us have been waiting patiently and would really appreciate this.
So the question is:
Are you guys still planning on making wing and nacelle animations optional? If not, how come? If so, why has it not been listed in the engineering report?
Thank you <3
