I don't know how many people are experiencing this issue, but it's getting flat out ridiculous. Play for a while, beam to ESD, Qo'Nos, the Flotilla, your bridge...where ever and suddenly half the textures aren't loading. Peoples costumes are white and flashing, inventory and UI icon pictures go missing, solid white boxes above vendors, entire UI windows are suddenly transparent.
Exit and restart the game and things are fixed and working fine again...for a while. Then it starts all over and not necessarily at any set time. Dont know what the issue is but I know it started with S8, and I know it's not my system, my internet, or anything else on my end.
So far today I've had to restart the client 5 times due to this, probably once an hour or so.
