Is there an option to turn down explosion screen flash?
« on: April 01, 2021, 12:17:25 PM »

Apologies if this has already been mentioned somewhere else? had a look and couldn't see it anywhere.

i don't recall the explsoion screen flash existing in 0.91 and whilst i can see for some its a good effect, for me personally i have to look away everytime a ship goes boom!

Not that it doesn't make sense to start with given the reality of a ship goin boom but after a good number of ships goin boom! The white flash is gettin mildy annoying :/

If there is an option to tone down the screen flash - that'd be appreciated! :)

Lovin 0.95 otherwise, just hoping for a few skill buffs in next update please! ( range spec / automated ships etc )

Many thanks!

Starsector > Starsector-core > Data > Config > settings.json
Then find:
 "enableShipExplosionWhiteout":true,
and set it to false.

Wasn't looking for this but appreciate this, as the effect is a little overbearing. Maybe the setting should be exposed in the options menu, as not many folk tend to go rooting around in config files. I can see this being an actual issue for folk with sensitive eyes or epilepsy.

It is indeed, but I personally find it adds some unique charm to the game.
