I know, having the different colors was dropping my framerate down to 2 and was affecting my gameplay. Now I am back up to 60 FPS!
This is the most absurd post I have read all day. Changing the color on your weapons has absolutely no effect on framerate. More than likely, it is probably your computer or isp to blame. Our entire fleet changed to custom colors yesterday during in a fleet action where there was over 20+ ships and I saw no change in framerate.
