I don't suppose there's a chance of an incoming ship mounted mining laser device, that we could use to mine Dilithium from the over abundance of asteroids we see in star systems is there? :p

I liked the idea of a mining laser cutting my ship but I agree the animation should be toned down slightly

I'll throw my 2 cents in as well and say yes please fix this it's annoying as hell. If it's a mining laser then fine but why are there chunks of rock coming off of my metal ship? The smoke screen effect is also over the top, it can be negated somewhat by trying to track the target at an angle but the fact you have to do that at all should be a hint that the power needs to be adjusted.

I agree... I do not want to fight any ships with the mining laser anymore... I don't have any lag issues, but the graphics make no sense and annoy the heck out of me. Fighting is supposed to be fun... not something I pay to suffer through

The end in nigh.

And yeah...don't understand the rocks myself. I can live with the rocks, but I hate how the smoke obscures my view completely so I can't get the firing arcs lined out right,
Make that 9. Those effects are too over done. They obstruct everything.

I totally agree. Even when I scroll out it still covers my entire ship and gets really laggy.

Agreed. On top of all that, the effect happens when the shields are up. Not much to carve out then right?

Also, didn't The Outrageous Okona and Conundrum establish that lasers couldn't even penetrate navigational deflectors?

You know, just for the fun of it, I'd like to be the first person to disagree with so many agreement for the first time.... ever..

but that "blind them with rock and smoke" effect is driving me crazy.. so yes, I also agree with everyone else.

Thanks.

110% Agree with this. And honestly, why would a 'Mining laser' cause my hull to thow off rocks in the first place; yes, it's a laser used to mine asteroids, but in Star trek, I neever saw a Fed starship made out of stone.
