I had seen it on Tribble. I do not mind it so much. Personally, if they had some sort of visual on your ships readout, that would be super. Other than your shield facings dissappearing, there is nothing there that shows any other subsystem offline.
ya some like the red and blue coming out there ships butts i for one dont point is we should have the option to turn it off not get the come back reply i like this i dont like this
and if this thing the OP is like what they are talking about i for one will not like it
For me it's not so much the colours, I like that it's an actual word rather than a weird arse symbol that makes me feel I should have learnt Egyptian hieroglyphs just to understand WTF is going on.
I agree that an option would be nice, I'm all for options. However Cryptics record on these things means it'll take a long time if ever. We did EVENTUALLY get the option to turn shield rings off, but we STILL have impulse trails, we STILL have no options on walk/run animations, we STILL have no race/class options for our android Boffs and even less for photonicBoffs. It really seems to come down to someone at Cryptic agreeing with what's being said, if no one there does, good idea or not, it'll stay right where the impulse trails are.
But I want mine to show "OFFLINE LOL" followed by an automatic fireworks discharge !
That'll show them Tholians I means buisness !
I am losing STO with each new system based update and with each removal and editing of content .
I don't know how to save her from her systems obsessed masters who seek to control and monetize me more and more .
Oh, its OUR ship thats offline? I thought we were really giving it to that borg dildo in the Red alert. I agree, thats lame. When I take screenshots, I want all those mmo graphics off so it looks like a pure tv/movie battle. Putting giant letters onto ships is lame. That graphic should just be on our dashboard. I have my shield rings turned off in space for a reason. So if you want to tell me my subsystems are offline, make little LCARs (or icons the Sci ships use for subsystems) buttons attached to the ship hull/shield dashboard and when they are working, they are shaded blue like the dashboard is, when they are offline, light them up red individually. Also put these buttons on the enemy ship status on our dashboard.
Once again, attention to details not followed, and I throw Dan dirty look #257 as to why that giant billboard graphic got approved.

It applies to both your ships and the enemies you are shooting at. If a system goes offline, you get the giant 'Offline' logo flashing up. It looks great when you disable the weapons on the Borg Queen's giant space dildo. The Offline message almost covers the entire end of the Unimatrix ship.
