Since the "19.4." update I can't see engine trails behind any ship's engines, the only exception is the green trail from the borg engines or when I go full impulse (but then I see only the red ones). I tried changing my video settings but nothing helped (Not even setting everything on max). Some of my friends from the fleet have the same issue - but not everyone.
Any tips how to solve this? Its not that big of deal it just looks weird to either have no trail at all or just the green one.

<Dev> Oaks@dstahl: RE: Engine Trails - unfortunately we tried to turn them off but it is server drawn so it turns all trails off in zone for everyone - so we have to remake it to do what you want. maybe someday.
EVEN IF they did turn them off they did a poor job because I can see trails from some engines that change how the trail looks (I just cant see the classic blue and red or the maco blue and green or whatever) and still,I HIGHLY doubt that they would just turn them off. They would atleast give you the option or say something in the patch notes. Its a bug and I would kind of like all my engine trails back, I like them.
Another poor job by Cryptic. My jem hadar without special borg or stuff doesnt have any more purple trails at all. Very, very poor. This game's quality is decreasing with every new patch they bring out.
